"What's Your Angle?" -
Growing up on the streets of Storms, Maebh learned cynicism early. She's deeply suspicious of any shows of trust and always wary of people's intentions. She keeps herself emotionally reserved, quick to undercut any affection or closeness with her usual teasing. Insistent that her relationships are purely transactional.

"My Heart Beats Upon A Tree"- She has dwelt in Storms all her life, and has overcome her disability with sheer persistence. She knows the city like the back of her hand and can navigate it's streets with ease, a point of pride. Outside the walls however, she's overcome with dread. Navigating the unknown is an exercise in frustration and shame. Her greatest fear is to be lost beyond the city.​

"Blind As a Bat" - Maebh was born blind, with all that comes with it. She doesn't feel strongly about her condition, simply regarding it as how she was made. Without sight, she's entirely reliant on sound, touch and motor memory to navigate the world. Far more attentive to sounds and smells than most.

"Street-wise" - A shrewd opportunist, Maebh is always willing to push her luck and wring the most out of someone. Maebh punches well above her weight, relying on bluffing and sheer force of personality to get what she wants. A fortune-teller by trade, she has a good nose for the insecure and lost. Maebh is also illiterate, and holds some disdain for the written word that she passes off as airy disinterest.

"Try me." - Maebh can't stand being pitied or underestimated for her lack of sight, and nothing will set her off easier. She'll pick fights she can't win and provoke those she dislikes just to prove she can.

"Don't need eyes to see" - Maebh has a knack for cold readings, a good intuition and a nose for detail.

"They started it!" - She's also a brat.

Memories

Rainy Chat.jpg

For the third time, Maebh has [Vision] cast on her without her consent and flies off the handle. Having hit 'Cheap-Trick' Uriel with the business-end of her cane, she storms out of the Cathedral and comes by Lilith, who follows her into the rain. The two have a long chat by a fountain in Storms under the shelter of Lilith's magic. They find they've got a lot in common, and soon Maebh is back to her usual self.

Added Relations of my own volition, noone was coerced. Thanks to everyone there for making this character such a joy to play so far. There's a handful of people I've had some great interactions with but couldn't justify a relation for. Give it time.
