Veteran, Martial Artist, Bladesmith, Miki Rei began her journey with knives and all manner of sharp things at the age of 6 in Atsugi Japan. The resulting lifelong love affair with knives and swords became an unexpected world of sensation, balance, and control when Miki discovered BDSM.
Eagerly combining her two passions, she’s spent the last 20 years translating her skill sets from both the military and martial worlds into applicable knife play techniques, and the last 5 designing and forging her own blades. Miki continues to refine, and share her skills as she develops both new blades and techniques.
Miki’s journey as a trans human in kink has helped shape many unexpected perspectives and informed the steps on her path. Together with her pet, ShyPuppy, she’s crafted a series of introspective talks and discussions that focus on not simply what we do, but why and how it can resonate past ourselves and serve, support and influence our communities over time. Sharing her Zen methods for creating successful tools to navigate the murky waters along our paths is a calling that Miki is incredibly passionate about. She thrives when in service to her friends, tribe, family, and community.

Pup Aechus
I’m a self-named uncollared stray who is loyal to his friends. I’m calm and independent, but sometimes a little too head-strong for my own good. Not a big fan of toys that squeak or rough and boisterous play. Head scratches will stop me dead in my tracks, though — and you’re welcome to test that out any time. Because it’s a FAQ: Aechus is derived from the Latin “aecus”, meaning fair, impartial, and kind. Kurendys is from the Latin “curandus”, meaning patient and cared-for. I’m a calm and cuddly pup with a strong sense of ethics, fairness, and loyalty—some human elements don’t go away in headspace. 🙂

Kruella (Fet: KruellaA) and Cat (Fet: Litigatrix) have been prowling and growling around the Tampa Community since 2014. Their primal dynamic begins from the idea that every person in the Pride must undergo constant personal evolution to adapt and overcome repeated power struggles to prove that one has earned their place in the dynamic. As the Pride Alpha, Kruella earns the right to rule the dynamic through force of personality, ethics, intellect, and will. The Pride operates on a “power with,” rather than a “power over” model, meaning that while the dynamic contains elements of traditional Dom/sub power structures, their dynamic centers around the Pride Alpha pushing each member of the Pride to grow individually and as a part of the relationship. Kruella and Cat have been active in the Tampa Bay community, running Tampa Coffee Time from 2016 to present, presenting a trans* 101 class at FPE 2015, and taking part in socials and discussion groups from both the leather and fetish communities.
