Clyde Eastside, better known as Meowfurryon Stormkitten, was a character role-played by shiny.

Description

Meowfurryon was a member of The Guild and worked at the Rooster's Rest. His legal name is Clyde Eastside but he usually goes by the name of his D&D character, Meowfurryon, Archdruid of the Wild, Protector of the Grove, Defender of Everything Cute, Fuzzy and Soft. He was level 4. Meowfurryon had the head of a cat and insisted that it was not a mask, and that it was his actual head. He might have been a furry.

He used to have a bad habit of ignoring bathrooms and peeing whenever and wherever nature called, including inside the Rooster's Rest. Eventually, his fellow Rooster's Rest employees became fed up with his behavior and forced him to see a veterinarian who removed his "yarn balls". Meowfurryon had since been on a search to get them back, going as far as creating a private investigator persona.

The loss of his "yarn balls" made Meowfurryon significantly smarter since he's no longer busy playing with his balls. He became a successful accountant for the Rooster's Rest and helped out other businesses across the city as well.

Big Cat Rescue

Meowfurryon was also the founder and main operator of Big Cat Rescue, aiming to save all the cats of Los Santos. The plan was to incentivize fishing by implementing a generous payout system for fishermen that will lure citizens away from hunting. Big Cat Rescue accepted donations and unpaid volunteer workers for the future cat sanctuary. The operation was a money laundering scheme to cover up the illegal production of meth by higher-ups at the Rooster's Rest together with The Guild.

Major Events

All Cops Are Baas

One of Meowfurryon's favorite pastimes was causing harmless mischief by hiding in the trunks of unlocked cars, waiting for the oblivious driver to return and drive him around. On one occasion, he hid in the trunk of a police vehicle that was parked outside. From previous experience, he knew that it was possible to enter the police department through its parking garage, and his plan was to stay in the trunk until the car was parked in the parking garage, leave the trunk, enter the PD and shit in their dog bowl. This was all done to demonstrate his frustration that the police has K9 units but no Fe9 units.

The police car he had picked turned out to be Baas' and Dante's car. They didn't take him inside the parking garage as Meowfurryon thought they would, but instead drove around Los Santos. During this ride, Meowfurryon accidentally became witness to a confidential conversation about ongoing police investigations and Baas' and Dante's personal lives. This included knowledge of meth production and a RICO case being built against the Vagos. Realizing what he had stumbled into, Meowfurryon started taking notes on his phone in case any information would be useful later.

Shortly after making a stop at Burger Shot, Baas and Dante ran into Nino Chavez. Meowfurryon decided that this was the perfect opportunity to leave the car, and he started yelling for help, saying he had been kidnapped. Nino however drove off, leaving Meowfurryon alone with Baas and Dante who were now aware of his presence. Meowfurryon tried to explain that he had entered the trunk at Burger Shot but they didn't believe him. They were paranoid about what Meowfurryon had overheard and continued to interrogate him even after he asked for a lawyer. To attempt to get him to tell the truth, they took him to a torture chamber in Grapeseed where they poured water over him and forced him to leave his cat form. At this point, Meowfurryon thought that they were going to kill him.

When Meowfurryon refused to speak anyway, he was taken to jail. Meowfurryon's phone with all of his notes was taken away from him and never returned. A lawyer was eventually sent to his cell but Meowfurryon didn't feel like the lawyer was on his side. Instead, he got the impression that Baas and Dante were trying to discredit him by pushing for a 51-50 on the basis that Meowfurryon believes himself to be a cat but isn't actually a cat person. Meowfurryon was then sent to prison.

Upon his return, The Guild, the emperors, and most of the city were appalled by Baas' actions and determined to serve justice, maybe more so than Meowfurryon himself. Baas was quickly suspended. Dean Watson allowed Meowfurryon to move into the suite above the casino where he would be safe. To further protect Meowfurryon, Lando Stormborn switched IDs with him since most people don't know Lando by his legal name, Keith Wanderlust, allowing Meowfurryon to create an undercover persona named Keith. In turn, Lando dressed up as Meowfurryon.

As a result of his trauma, Meowfurryon developed a fear of water bottles. Despite going to therapy, his mental state worsened further. As a coping mechanism, his brain shut out all memory of who had tortured him. A court case was scheduled to happen in the future and eagerly awaited by many, though Meowfurryon didn't particularly care about its outcome. When Meowfurryon was called on to testify, he was asked to describe the waterboarding, which caused him to panic. This panic led to Meowfurryon taking off his cat mask and announce himself as Clyde Eastside, shocking everyone in the room. This action of breaking character had also broke the promise that Meowfurryon made to the Stormlord. Judge Coyote found Dante guilty of obstruction of justice, accomplice of assault and battery, and accomplice of kidnapping. Baas was found guilty of assault and battery in addition to kidnapping.

After the court case, Meowfurryon had made amends with Baas, deciding to settle the civil case outside of court.

The Departure

In the days following the mostly successful criminal trial against Baas and Dante, Meowfurryon’s behavior became more reckless. This worried The Guild, as they were concerned that this could put Talon in jeopardy. The Guild decided to call a meeting where they warned Meowfurryon about his behavior and the conflict between wishing to commit crimes and his personal principles of not wanting to harm innocents.

Lang asked Denzel Williams to bring him along with him for a day in an attempt to convert Meowfurryon to a life of violence through “tough love”, and Denzel agreed. He brought Meowfurryon in his car and the two of them drove north. During the ride, Meowfurryon began to fear for his life, confiding in Denzel that he believed that Lang hated him and wanted to kill him, but Denzel said otherwise. Following this, Denzel pulled the car to the side of the road and shot several animals and locals, shocking Meowfurryon. He attempted to reason his actions to Meowfurryon by explaining how he sees the victims as loose ends that must be tied up, lest they end up getting himself killed.

Denzel then brought Meowfurryon to a gas station and demanded him to fill up the car with gas, but Meowfurryon refused, as he was terrified of Denzel and believed that he was crazy. Denzel attempted to get Meowfurryon to comply through punching and hitting him, but was unsuccessful. Meowfurryon only started to fill up the tank after Denzel threatened him with a gun. During this, Meowfurryon revealed to Denzel his standing within The Guild and his relationship with Lang, and how he felt that everything was uncertain.

With a full tank of gas, the two returned to the road and Denzel drove to the torture chamber in Grapeseed that Baas and Dante had taken Meowfurryon to. He forced Meowfurryon to sit in the chair that he was waterboarded in, and called Lang to ask for permission to waterboard Meowfurryon in order to get Meowfurryon to waterboard him in retaliation. However, Lang denied the request, insisting that Denzel stick to using “tough love”.

Denzel then took Meowfurryon back onto the road, and started to shoot and kill animals and locals again. In an attempt to gaslight Meowfurryon, Denzel claimed that Meowfurryon was complicit in these murders and that innocents were being harmed because of him.

Unfortunately, Denzel's efforts would backfire in the end. Meowfurryon stuck to his own moral code and decided that not only was Denzel a psychopath, but so was everyone else for going along with Lang's plan. Meowfurryon stood in the lake, he came to a realization that he can’t stay in The Guild, as their actions conflicted with his principles. Meowfurryon then stated “/gquit” out loud in front of Denzel, announcing his departure from The Guild. He then started to run away, and Denzel chased after him in a panic.

Now fearing for his life even more, Meowfurryon called the first person he could think of, Deputy Baas. He quickly came to Meowfurryon’s location, and Meowfurryon told him that he had left the guild. This greatly alarmed Baas, and he called Olivia Copper to ask for her help. Once Copper arrived, they asked about why Meowfurryon was fearing for his life, and he tried to be as vague as possible, not wanting to implicate The Guild or Lang.

Copper drove Meowfurryon back into the city, and the two of them ran into Lang outside of a 24/7 store. Meowfurryon went to go talk to Lang, entering his Bentley to do so. They started to drive around in order to talk. Meowfurryon explained that he had thought that Denzel was going to murder him and how he didn’t say anything to the police that would implicate The Guild or the members of Talon. As they took a turn off the highway and onto a dirt path through the forest, Lang asked if Meowfurryon had regretted calling the cops, and he responded with a no, and that he regretted getting into the car with Denzel earlier that day. Lang attempted to counter with bringing up how Baas had tortured Meowfurryon, but he explained that he forgave Baas because one cannot judge another based upon their actions in the past. When Lang asked about why Meowfurryon couldn’t forgive Denzel, Meowfurryon told him that he thinks that Denzel is simply insane.

Once at a bridge crossing over the Zancudo River, Lang ordered Meowfurryon to exit the car. He complied, and without saying a word Lang drove off into the night, leaving Meowfurryon behind. Meowfurryon then called Trey Romano, one of his closest friends. Trey came and picked Meowfurryon up, and Meowfurryon explained how he was scared for his life and that he quit The Guild. The two then engaged in a heartfelt conversation where Trey revealed how much he cared about Meowfurryon and that he had promised someone to protect him. He even said that if Meowfurryon was to leave the city, he would leave the city alongside him.

After everything that had happened Meowfurryon decided that the only option was to leave the city for an indefinite amount of time. He asked Trey to take him to the Los Santos International Airport, and Trey asked if Meowfurryon wanted Trey to come with him, but Meowfurryon declined. He asked Trey to take a picture with him in order to tell others that he’s safe. Once he hotwired an airplane, Meowfurryon's last act before flying away into the night sky was to text Copper and inform her he was leaving Los Santos.
