Satine Phoenix (born May 22, 1980)[1][2] is a Filipino American comic book illustrator, painter, cosplayer, model, actress, former pornographic actress, and bondage/fetish model living in Los Angeles, California.[3] She is the co-creator, with writer R.K. Syrus, of the graphic novel New Praetorians and the founder of CelebrityChariD20 (formerly CelebrityCharityDnD). In 2010, she revived her art and gaming career at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, California by starting DrawMelt (a life drawing class with cosplay models) and DnDMelt (a gaming community focused around Dungeons and Dragons).

Early life[edit]

Phoenix was born May 22, 1980 in Olongapo, Zambales,[1] located in the Philippines. Her father is American/Sicilian, and her mother is Filipino. She was raised in Sacramento, California.[4]

Adult film career[edit]

Phoenix was a computer programmer and a stripper in San Francisco before entering the adult film industry in 2006.[5][6] The first part of her stage name comes from both the sparkling diamond from the film Moulin Rouge and the painting Satine Duralux from the book Bluebeard (by Kurt Vonnegut); and the second part is a reference to the empress’ symbol on the tallest mountain in China.[4] Phoenix was also very open about her interest in S&M and bondage,[5] and she came in fourth place for Best Comic Artist at the Bondage Awards in 2010.[7]

In a 2006 report for the news website AlterNet the journalist Annalee Newitz referred to her as "the sort of person who has the education and resources to choose from many careers and has chosen this one because she likes it".[8]

Mainstream career[edit]

Actress & Model: Phoenix has accepted projects that appeal to her interests in gaming and fetish fashion, cosplaying characters from various D&D games and modeling in latex and leather. Notable projects include the gaming web series I Hit It With My Axe and Pen, Paper & Laser Guns. In 2013, she appeared in the Javier Grillo-Marxuach's short film Minotaur.[9] She also appeared in seasons three and four of TableTop with Wil Wheaton.[10]

Gaming: Phoenix co-developed the web series I Hit It With My Axe, which was distributed through online magazine The Escapist.[3][11] She also formed DnDMelt at Meltdown Comics, where she was dubbed the "Queen of D&D" by Time magazine.[12]

Phoenix organizes meet-ups and events, notably the "Celebrity Charity Dungeons & Dragons", a charity event to raise funds for Reach Out and Read, a national non-profit organization that advocates for childhood literacy.[18] She has also done live performance art with the San Francisco group "Zen Bullies," body painting, a bondage burlesque show, and had a weekly radio show on KSEXradio.[5]
