A Mage the Ascension play-by-post Game

Maeve O'Shea

Council Member of the Chantry of Thirteen Faiths

"What does this wildish intuition do for women? Like the wolf, intuition has claws that pry things open and pin things down, it has eyes that can through the shields of persona, it has ears that hear beyond the range of mundane human hearing. With these formidable psychic tools a woman takes on a shrewd and even precognitive animal consciousness, one that deepens her femininity and sharpens her ability to move confidently in the outer world." ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Physical Description: Appearance 4 (Sultry)
From her name to her flaming red hair, Maeve is undeniably Irish. She has porcelain skin that is dotted with freckles (which are only visible when she isn't wearing makeup) and vibrant blue eyes that stand out from the muted ivory of her flesh and contrasts sharply with the rich, natural orange-red of her hair color. Her facial features are regal and delicately rounded, with high but soft cheekbones and full lips. She is modestly average in height, around 5'6 or 5'7, but she sometimes augments her height with heels, and her frame is thin but desirably curved. She dresses in a variety of styles but leans toward the upper-middle class, and she most often dresses in a way that implies rather than gives the full picture.

Despite not being a smoker, she can sometimes be seen fidgeting with an ornate, lighter. She also almost always wears a silver locket that she is rather protective of. She is known to have at least one uniquely-shaped throwing knife that is presumably made of silver.
Notable Merits/Flaws/Backgrounds:
Maeve oozes raw sex appeal. It's in the way she walks, how she talks, how she generally carries herself, and how she interacts with others. While not everything is laden with innuendo, she clearly knows how to use little touches and subtle turns of phrase to get her way when she wants, and she has long since learned how to accentuate her features and what charms to lean upon. (Sex Appeal, Confidence)

She possesses a very, very strong reflection of her Irish heritage, and supernatural circles throw around rumors that she is related - directly or distantly depending on who is telling whom - to Irish werewolves, though she is mum on the truth of the matter, personally. (Shapechanger Kin)

It is difficult to discern, but possible to learn that she has a nine-year-old daughter named Caera. In mid-April 2015, she had her second child, a red-haired baby boy she named Oisin.

Personality Overview: Charisma 4 (Confident)
When in group company, Maeve is competent but amiable; she usually defers to the most dominant personality of the group, if it is not her own, but she freely offers her opinion on matters and possesses a poised self-confidence that is both admirable and enviable.

In one-on-one interactions, she wears her self-confidence more overtly and favors close quarters, though she doesn't often touch people as she's speaking to them. She seems to cycle through dominant personality traits, from empathy to coyness to humor, but everything she does, she does with self-assurance and confidence.

Her rapport with her cabalmate hints at questionable character but humor all the same, though she is often described as a classy lady by outsiders.
