Esequiel Concepciòn Cajeta Kurihara is a male tanuki swingfur who most recently played for the Edmonton Totems.


The eldest of seven siblings, Esequiel Cajeta was forced to mature at a young age. The tanuki endured constant ridicule as a foreigner in the notorious barrios of Buenos Aires. Raised under the fist of their alcoholic grandfather, a Japanese war criminal granted state asylum, Esequiel and his brothers found little comfort at home. The siblings learned to look out for one another and trust no one. Still, abject poverty took its toll on the Cajeta family. Esequiel has already lost two brothers to gang violence and drug abuse. The whereabouts of another remain unknown.

With few options available, Esequiel initially planned to enlist in the military. He found an outlet for his rage and frustration playing pick-up basketball at the nearby community center. It was here, in a world where strength and power were valued above all, that the adolescent cut his chops and developed a reputation throughout the community. It was here that he earned the nickname “El Brujo” (The Sorcerer).

Esequiel’s life would change forever when he was scouted at a local 3-on-3 tournament. Winning a scholarship to the elite halls of UCM, “El Brujo” quickly established his value as a speedy, aggressive slasher, whose dynamic presence in the paint led the team’s run’n’gun offence. The hilight of his career came with a selection to Argentina’s Olympic roster, becoming the youngest member in national team history. Despite playing in a reserve capacity on the international stage, Esequiel’s talent impressed team captain and FBA superstar Nathan Spinner, who initially recommended the tanuki forgo junior year in favor of declaring for the draft.

Esequiel’s explosive offensive power distinguishes him as arguably the most gifted prospect in South America. Still, his defensive game remains a work in progress. His singular focus often hinders his ability to transition effectively. In addition, he has a tendency to showboat and opt for the high-risk play, which should result in turnovers, interceptions, and foul trouble at the professional level.

Esequiel is a natural leader: confident and cocky. However, he may prove a PR liability off-court. The prospect has occasionally been a lightning rod for controversy in the press, likely the result of his conservative upbringing. He continues to deny allegations of speciesm and sexism, claiming innocence as an “outspoken traditionalist.”
