Some call me "The Prince of Cats" or "Companion to Beasts," but whatever name I assume or am given through the passing eras, I am the animal all the time. This human face is merely a disguise which I wear to better hunt in this concrete jungle - come and see what moves behind my eyes: the insatiable hunger, the vast emptiness... Get lost in my gaze and become my prey.
I've been a fangsmith (Master Fangsmith Ali) since 1998 for all of you who like to have sharp and pointy smiles. I also specialize in making veneers for masking dental imperfections, including partial and full denture plates. All modifications are removable. Since so many wonder what flavor I am, well, the African origins are apparent. However, in addition to that, my father's family comes from an island in the Caribbean called Antigua and have shared bloodlines with the Garifuna people. So, my ancestors from his side were pretty much cannibals. My mother's family is a strange mixture of Cherokee/Italian/Portuguese, with once again that lovely African foundation. I'm a twisted concoction of exotic wickedness, mysterious hoodoo and a born predator. Always remember, I am not a vampire, but something a bit more dangerous: that which embodies the fallen, the feline and the scorpion in spirit and form. I have confronted the humanity within me, watched it wither away and have learned to find peace without it. Be my victim, I feast upon whatever does not escape fast enough . . . Are you fast enough? Do you want to be?
