Appearance

Basics

Essentials

  • Species: A hybrid of wolf and dog (mainly Irish Wolfhound), she takes on these qualities predominately; her other dog breeds and the hint of coyote blood are barely noticeable, except for perhaps in her gait and carriage. Her tail is that of a wolf's, though she has a tendency to carry it outright behind her and perhaps even loosely held upwards more like a dog.
  • Fur: Her fur is thick and curly, shedding water like a duck's, from her father's spaniel ancestry.
    • Optime Hair: Maire's hair is pulled back into a long braid, with short curls framing her face; from some angles it appears that she has very short hair, although this is certainly not the case!
  • Facial Features: Her muzzle is long like a wolfhound's, but the overall conformation of her face shows how muddied her bloodlines are. Her ears, meanwhile, are somewhat large and flop down at the tips even as they are held upright.
  • Build and Size: Máire is taller than average, but her height is not especially impressive. She appears more elegant than overall wolfish, but a great amount of muscle belies her "pretty" stature. She has the strength to run and hunt and fight, with long legs able to propel her at great speeds.
  • Humanization: High level of humanization, tribal style over more modern aspects.

Coloration

  • Fur:
    • Refer to palette.
  • Markings:
    • Dark ears spreading to shoulders and her ruff.
    • Black-tipped tail.
    • White blaze across the bridge of her muzzle.

Personality

Something Here, Something Here, Something Here & Something Here Máire is a deeply religious individual with a particular affinity for Lugh. Her devotion to him could be seen as almost fanatical by some, as it plays a heavy role in her lifestyle and choices. Despite this, she is not pushy or interested in converting others. She sees her religion as a superior one, meant for those wise enough to choose it and thus does not really attempt to bring others to her gods. If they are deserving, she assumes they will come over to the "correct" religion in time.

In general, she is rather sarcastic and calculating around those she doesn't know. She doesn't show a lot of emotion toward strangers or those she doesn't know well, reserving her true feelings and personality for those that matter to her. This is mostly visible around her sisters and nephew, around whom she is her truest self.

Ideals

Interests

  • Likes: Lugh, religious ritual, spear fighting, hunting, her family, her pack, horseback riding
  • Dislikes: fools, romantics, willful ignorance,

Traits

Secretive, religious, sharp, family-oriented

  • Outlook: Optimistic
  • Expression: Introverted neutral; generally unambitious so far, introverted by nature
  • Alignment: True neutral

Fears

  • Failing her gods

Motivations

  • Fulfilling her purpose, furthering her family's position

Biases

  • Packs: Pro-Midnight Shores, as she helped them move and generally looks upon their membership favorably; thinks New Dawn is weird because they prefer more feral forms, but doesn't necessarily dislike them or their membership.
  • Species: Believes mixed blood canines are superior, by merit of mixed bloodlines that give them more diverse biology. Doesn't dislike pureblooded canines, but thinks they are hobbling themselves if they continue to keep their bloodlines in one type of canine.
  • Non-Luperci: Considers non-luperci to be odd for not taking full advantage of their potential options to have a better life and generally perceives them as weaker.
  • Gender: Both genders are equal; the individual makes or breaks their value to the world.
  • Color: No biases
  • Sexuality: Thinks all canines should pursue their happiness wherever they find it. Doesn't necessarily believe in monogamy, except when it comes to reproduction for the purpose of continuing certain genetic lines.
  • Age: No biases

Sexuality

Demisexual (does not feel a sexual attraction until after an emotional attachment). So far, has felt no emotional or sexual attraction to anyone.

Substances

Experimental and inclined to try things that may help her feel closer to her god. Doesn't particularly like alcohol, but does have an interest in safely trying hallucinogens that could give her a closer connection to Lugh.

Spirituality

Highly religious, following the religion of Airgid Gleann. Máire has a particular affinity for Lugh and believes herself to be his vessel in the mortal world. She almost always buries the heart of any animal she kills and buries it in tribute to him. This also ties into her affinity for ravens, which are believed to be his messengers in the world.

Relationships

Family: Brádaigh, Cuchulainn & Macmathan & Moineau

Relations

Key Relations

  • Tierney Brádaigh the leader of the trio, Máire respects Tierney a great deal, even though that is not always apparent upon the surface. She holds a great deal of affection and respect towards her eldest sister.
  • Nimh Brádaigh much like her relation with Tierney, Máire adores her sister but also strives to challenge and will happily banter with and bicker with Nimh.

Positive Relations

  • Leonardo Auditore is whom Máire has spent most of her time with, helping him with the animals as well as in blacksmithing.
  • Characters is also your character's buddy-old-pal-old-friend-of-mine

Neutral / Negative

  • Diarmid Ahearne was the triplets combat instructor, until they left the tribe. A hard taskmaster, he trained the girls hard and pushed for results; he is much like a brother or father figure to Máire.
  • Nivosus Moineau is essentially an enigma to Máire, who has yet to decide what to make of her blood relative.

History

Timeline

2012

  • September: Born out of mateship, the triplet's mother believed Ferris, her mate and current chief of the Nemain Tribe, was infertile. Desiring children, Kane travelled far away, where no one would recognise her, seeking someone who resembled Ferris and fell pregnant with the triplets. No one suspected a thing when they were born, the children strong bodied and of true Brádaigh appearance.

2013:

  • March: First shift details here
  • February: Cillian is born, unknown to everyone he is the only true heir of the clan's chief.
  • April: Ceremony of blood takes place at 7 months of age, which Tier (The eldest of the triplets) takes part in. The ceremony goes wrong, resulting in shame upon the family and Máire suspects that the reason the ceremony went wrong is because they are not of the true blood; for that is the only logical explanation.
  • May: Kane, weighed down by personal guilt and fear of exposure after the failed ceremony begins working them harder in the art of combat and other tribal customs, forcing the triplets to seek perfection and prove their blood to be true and strong. Tierney enters an apprenticeship with an older tribe member, to gain more experience in fighting.
  • August: Their mother grows restless and as the guilt and concern of wrath of the gods, spills the beans about the girls true heritage. The three storm of and begin arguing vehemently in the wilderness, Tier wanting to speak with their father, whilst Máire and Nimh are not as open to the idea of contacting their true father. Their arguing is broken up by the appearance of their younger brother; spiteful towards him and his true heritage, the argument escalates, awakening and drawing in a nearby bear. The bear attacks, littering Cillian injuries and wounding the sisters; in fear they flee, believing their brother to be dead. Out of guilt, the triplets exile themselves from the tribe, unable to face the shame of what has transpired.

2014:

  • March: Unable to decide upon a course of action, the triplets break out into a fight amongst themselves. Tierney heads off to seek out their father, with Máire and Nimh each going their own ways.
  • September: Caving in, Máire seeks out and reunites with Tierney whom is now accompanied by Diarmid and looking to help their uncle, Nivosus, found the pack Sapient.
  • October: Máire participated in the founding of the pack Sapient.
  • November: As part of a pack trade for livestock, Maire along with Tierney and Leonardo aided members of the then defunct pack Cercatori d'Arte move up north.
