Rossi joined X-Project back in January 2004 with Amanda Sefton following long-time friend Dex pitching the idea to her whilst she was moving house in a heatwave. She took on Madelyn Bartlet in June 2004 when second characters were approved and continued to play both until December 2005, when she temporarily left the game. Upon her return six months later, she resumed playing Amanda, and in August 2006 she applied for Yvette Petrovic in order to provide more students to the school. She was elected to the modship in the first mod elections in February 2007 and held the position until she resigned at the end of December 2010. She returned to the position in January 2012, apparently being a glutton for punishment. ;)

During the relaunch of January 2015, Rossi killed off Yvette, to free her up for clean-slate applications. She finally got off her butt and apped Monica Rambeau in July 2015, having finally caught up on the Phase 2 Wiki changes.


Rossi is also known as the Wiki goddess, having been involved in the project from its beginnings and responsible for much of the content, including at least half of the monthly summaries. She is also responsible for the Featured Articles used on the main page as well as much of the day-to-day maintenance. If you have a problem with anything Wiki-related, she is always happy to help.

Within the game, Rossi is known for organising the Red X plots and assisting people with plot-running, regardless of actual participation in them herself. Some of these plots include: Limbo (plot), Heiress Discordia, Romancing the Holy Whatsis, Worlds On Fire, When It All Goes Wrong Again, Upgrade, Operation: Body Snatchers, Voodoo Child, These Earthly Things, Day Zero, Valentia's Lullaby, X-Men Mission: Jailbreak and others. If you need help with plot development or wrangling, Rossi is your girl.

XP is Rossi's first game. She started reading comics fanfic in 1996, and posting it in 1997. She started off writing largely Generation X/X-Men, as well as The Common People Project, which is still her first fanfic love. She gradually shifted into Vertigo and Top Cow (The Sandman, Hellblazer, Midnight Nation), and has dabbled in Buffy, Firefly and Lord of the Rings fanfic. She's probably best known for writing either 'slice of life' realism or crime thrillers of the supernatural bent. She was also heavily involved in Subreality, moderating the House of Strange Dimensions round robin board up until 2001.

Since getting involved in XP, Rossi has been part of several other games, to various levels: a very short tenure at "1407 Greymalkin Lane" on GJ (now defunct), Persephone a Firefly 'verse game that had an unfortunately brief lifespan, and equally brief stint in "The Reaping Hour", a Dead Like Me game over on IJ which died the death shortly after starting.

When not playing XP, Rossi works for the Ontario government, having emigrated to Canada from Australia in 2006. She currently rooms with Dex and Aisy in the basement apartment she calls her hobbit hole. She also has a cat, Spike, who is very cute, but not overly blessed with brains. His brother Angel passed away in September 2016.
