Arcturus (Full name interwebz name: Arcturus .J. Kirwin) is Cbee's lover and a furry. He/she/it also goes by the name Fiscal, AJKirwin or Nicolyrezk and is usually found schmoozing at #E621 on the Darkmyst servers. He may be fucking KurtBatz, considering their undying obsession for each other.
Until recently Arcturus was the owner of the website http:///www.e621.net, basically an image dump of furry images taken from wherever its users felt like it. Mostly Furaffinity and DeviantArt and organising them by metatags. Essentially a poor mans fchan (not that fchan isn't isn't particularly poor already anyhow). Why put effort into making a site when you can make a perfectly good one by stealing everyone elses shit, eh? Arcturus' art dumping was eventually noticed by one Thaily Brimstone (where the fuck do they get these names?) who noticed her art on the site and bitched about it on the LJ group here after that many other members discovered their art there and began to complain en masse to Arcturus and started waving their E-lawyers about and crying. Arcturus' initial response to ignore them fell through when they went past him and started crying directly to his host which didn't get very far either.
This status quo was maintained until a TARTlet called RikuTida entered the frey and realised that whining about EULA breaches wasn't getting them shit. His solution? THAT SITE'S PACKING CP. Of course CP is the magical word that gets sites shut down in an instant as the hosts want to cover their asses ASAP.

The full (successful) strategy was explained to Arcturus in an E-mail that can be read here
Of course, this has spawned this:  where Arcturus complains about "why I have a problem with some artists", which he brought on himself for choosing to deal with OMGCOPYRIGHT furry artists in the first place.
An example of an artist's communication with Arcturus:
After another furry, Insane Kangaroo, reported e621.net also for CP in 2010 to get things their way, Arcturus gave up on running e621.net
Fucking Furries (literally)
Based in Reading, Wales, Arcturus has been enjoying life in sweet buttfucking harmony with Cbee or Cookie before returning to the UK he/she/it quite literally lives in his/her/it's parents basement and actually had plans on having a gay marriage to long-time internet e-boyfriend Kemru/Koekje/Maou in October of 2007, he flew all the way to fucking America for this. But to be honest, as hideous and pathetic as these creatures are, it's probably better not to think about it.
"Whiney Artist Award"
Arcturus had his ass buddy, Cbee, make an "award" certificate for artists he considered "whiny" about their DMCA requests. This unfortunately resulted in even MOAR whining and Arcturus was forced to take his "award" down to save face.
FUCKING LEAVING FA!!!
Needless to say, Arcturus was looking for a fuzzy warm hugbox. Unfortunately, instead of getting the many e-hugs that he so desperately hoped for, he got over 9000 users who lol'd and told him to leave.
This resulted in some valiant white-knighting (usually in the form of "Re-posting art without artist permission is NOT illegal!!! Copyright violation is NOT theft!!!", but mostly lol.
As predicted by everyone who wasn't looking to suck Arcturus' cock, Arcturus remained on FA despite the mass plea for him to GTFO, so he may continue to post emo journals and stolen art.
Threats from Anonymous
Arcturus was allegedly threatened by an Anonymous person back in 2006 and posted this image of the letter and bag of white powder he received in the mail. Upon receiving the package, he quickly freaked out, posting a whinyscared message on his livejournal. After calling police on advice of several fellow furfags, he was rightly deemed not important enough to worry about by the police and told to summarily fuck off.
