Physical Description: Appearance 3
Megs is a young woman in her early-20s who has pale green eyes and dark brown hair that looks frizzy from the kinked natural curls. She is thin from a students' diet of ramen noodles and microwaveable foods but has some toning to her muscles that indicate a prior history of track running; she does not sport much in the way of curves and she is comfortably average in height at 5'5". She has thinned quite a bit over the last 6 months, and she pays attention to her appearance more now than she did a year ago; maybe it is a boost in self-confidence or maybe it is to help present herself more professionally, but it has certainly boosted her attractiveness now that she actually takes care of herself. Mostly dresses in clothing that covers her limbs regardless of weather.
Notable Possessions: This psych student often carries a knapsack of pamphlets or books--the pamphlets are always on mixed subjects that range from coping with psychological disorders to tourist guides and the books are typically course books for her classes.

Personality Overview: Charisma 3
Megan is a bookworm but she is more social than people would assume based on her appearance. She is warm and willing to listen--in fact she likes to let people talk while she simply listens and observes--and she does not hesitate to smile. People tend to feel comfortable around her. She does have quirks with some of them being along the lines of psychoanalyzing her conversation-partner or broaching topics like dead languages and how languages have changed; she will sometimes insert a word from another language into a sentence but continue as though she assumes the person knows what it means or she does not know she did it.
Noticeable Merits/Flaws: Approachable, Natural Linguist
As was said before Megan is quite Approachable but she also exhibits a flair for languages of all varieties; some of them have come quickly to her in her studies and she rarely misses a verb conjugation; her professors know her to be a polyglot, and a rather talented one at that.

Known Recent History: When the game began, she was at the beginning of the summer quarter at Brown University and had been living with her sometimes-boyfriend Ryan for the prior 6 months or so; rumors had stirred among her circle of friends (and by extension anyone who was around to catch it) that Ryan was not very kind to his roommate-slash-sometimes-girlfriend "and that was why she wore sweaters in summer".

Some time ago, Ryan was found dead in the on-campus apartment he and Megan shared and the mouse-ish bookworm disappeared from general sight for several months. She later resurfaced and was cleared of any charges in Ryan's death on the grounds of self-defense; here it was revealed that he was in fact quite abusive, and Megan was court-ordered to attend therapy. Her friends have deserted her and she now leads a lonely life volunteering at hospitals to help with some minor administrative tasks as she works on her final year for her Bachelor's.

She has consistently kept herself off the radar since arriving, helping people alongside her cabal but causing little trouble on her own.
General Mortal Knowledge: Megan is a 4th-year student at Brown University--she is aiming for a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology with a minor in Linguistics. She is a studious young woman and people sometimes find it difficult to talk badly about her; when they do it usually involves her judge of character in her personal relationships or the sometimes-creepy way she analyzes conversation-partners aloud for them without prompting. She no longer has any real friends and instead spends her time volunteering or attending therapy or by herself.
