Alex 'Ace' Maddox[1] is a furry artist and writer from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA area.

Real life[edit]

Alex is a pre-op male to female transgender woman. She has a deep affection for all animals and has had this affection since she was a young child. That love soon expanded to animated cartoons as she grew up in the era of DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin and many other.

Alex is an avid fan of the Pittsburgh area sports fans. She is also a fan of Doctor Who, having adopted the nickname Ace from the Seventh Doctor's companion. She has grown up a fan of My Little Pony, having been watching since generation one.

It wasn’t until 1999 that she came to identify with the fur community, upon discovering The Gneech’s The Suburban Jungle webcomic. The main characters, in particular Tiffany Tigress and Leona Lioness that showed her that females could be strong and dominant in their own rights. Another character, Drezzer Wolf helped her come out, which she has done a total of four separate times. Her family does not approve, and she is working to remove herself from that situation.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Alex has been in the furry fandom for eighteen years, since that fateful day she found The Gneech's comic. From her humble beginnings she’s used various names including Ravyn DeLaFae when SoFurry was still YiffStar and its chat was Yiffchat. She’s bounced from name to name until finally settling on Alex or Ace. This is the name she decided on for herself, after three years of being out as transgender, the name is the same for the fursona .

She is also an avid roleplayer and mingles on Twitter, trying to help other furries on there and just generally hang out. She can be found in either the SoFurry chat room or the F-List's chat room as well as Telegram and Discord, but she doesn't give that info out unless asked.

She was at Anthrocon 2017 when she was at a panel run by Steel the Warrior Tegan thought she found her fursona--a cheetah. It didn't last.

In 2018, she applied for and received membership into the Furry Writers' Guild under a pen name Tegan Ainsley. [2]
