Red, as she is known to many people, has a background of digital media arts but when it comes to game modification, is completely self taught. She started playing AvP back in very early 1999 on MPlayer, starting a fairly successful clan which ran until well after MPlayer was retired and into the next platform for playing AvP and then AvP2. She also met her long-time boyfriend, Sadistic_Dragon in AvP in 1999.
Also around that time, she started delving into creating skins, first for AvP and later for AvP2 once that came out. Shortly into the life of AvP2, she became hosted on PlanetAVP, releasing many skins on that site. She also created tutorials for skinning and privately taught a number of other modders. She got into 3d modelling during this time and eventually brought that knowledge over to AvP 2 and, thanks to Cody's help, became the first modder to use 3ds max to get new models into that game. She later taught some other prolific modders of that community how to as well. She also previously contributed models to other modders' works such as Windebieste's "Under the Hunter's Moon" campaign for Avp2.
Since then, she has added a contribution to Wesp's Unofficial Patch for Vampire : The Masquerade Bloodlines, wrote the first circulated custom player model tutorial for Left 4 Dead on the now-defunct l4dmods.com under the name of Shilo Wallace, and worked on and still works on many, many unreleased mods for a number of games including Skyrim, Payday 2, Source Engine, and more as well as codes and designs websites.
