"Mapping left a huge impact on my life and I am thankful for that. But I am forced and willing to move on. We were gifted with a limited time on this beautiful rock and everyone should make the best out of it.
- Proxima, April 24, 2019.
Proxima, formerly known as Patrian Mapping, is a former German edgy mapper. He mapped from 2016–2019, however due to the fact that 2016 was on his former channel, and that the majority of 2018 was a large hiatus, Proxima's era of mapping is generally referred to as 2017.
Proxima lives in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Proxima began mapping on Patrian Mapping, where he created Alternate Future of Europe that ran through January 2016. It received lackluster feedback, and no more videos appeared on the channel. On January 27, 2017, the Proxima channel was created, and a few weeks, later, Alternate Future of the World began, which received critical acclaim. He collaborated with Imperialis and formed the Proxima-Imperialis Multiverse, and quickly rose through the ranks of mapping and surpassed Imperialis. Proxima then created Alternate Future of Europe. Proxima mysteriously cut contact with the Mapping Community in the summer 2019, after creating a short-lived, incomplete series on alternate channel called Altair. He has ignored all attempts at communication since. He however did show up on a discord server (Primus Ordo Arcei) once.
