MysteriousMasquerade, also known under his current IMVU username Artifact, or previous usernames Xylliandrax or Kalixtai, was a forum and IMVU T1 role-player.
MysteriousMasquerade started role-playing casually on RuneScape in 2004 as padme153. He later moved on to Dungeons & Dragons around 2006, and by around 2007 to forum role-play in the realistic (human) and unrealistic (mainly vampire) play-by-post role-playing genre. When moving to forum role-playing, role-playing became a more serious pastime for him and he learnt about the T1 role-playing style.
MysteriousMasquerade joined IMVU at the end of 2007, exchanging forum role-play for chat role-play. On IMVU, he joined groups such as Coven 13, Hollow's Blood Clan and Coven de Sang Creux. Through the latter, he picked up T1 again as well and started doing paragraph role-play and later, by around 2009 or early 2010, multiple paragraph role-play.
In 2011, MysteriousMasquerade had joined Profane Creation, and with joining Icarus in 2012, he started getting more into forum RP again due to role-playing on the Icarus RP forum, which he continued until 2013. Throughout 2013 however, his RP activities declined, until he entirely stopped by the start of 2014.
