Thylacine is an Australian Real Life Superhero based in the city of Melbourne.


One half of Real Life Superhero team The Fauna Fighters, Thylacine works alongside partner Flying Fox to promote animal welfare and animal rights issues. Along with the PETA campaign, his 'Operation Damascus' petition drive and protest against David Lawrence's sale of fur was successful in having unethical product pulled from the chain. He has devoted his time to lending support to various animal rights organizations, from Animals Australia to Animal Liberation Victoria, Oscars Law and various anti-vivesection groups. Thylacine has also outreached into community watch and suburban/nature reserve clean-ups.

His hero persona is that of the now-extinct Tasmanian Tiger or Tasmanian Wolf. He is the main documentor of The Fauna Fighter's protests. His RLSH inspirations include Captain Ozone, Shadow Hare RLSH, Purple Reign RCSM and Captain Australia, whilst he sites Alan Moore's seminal 1986 novel Watchmen as one of his favourite comic book works.

His future plans for the Fauna Fighters include more intensive protests, petition drives, clean-ups and recruitment into the movement.
