Appearance

Play By: Catherine Cusack
Distinguishing Features: Maeve’s dark hair and very green eyes are set in a face usually described as “strong.” She is characterized by her calm, competent, and soothing professionalism as a Healer.

Personality

Personality:

As the oldest of five children, like the oldest of many a large family everywhere, Maeve matured early, helping her mother with the care of her siblings. She developed strong maternal instincts early on, and was considered by one and all to be a serious child, especially in contrast to the wildly creative antics of her younger siblings. Her three brothers and younger sister provided plenty of practice for the young Healer-in-training as did their friends. Despite the differences in their personalities, she has never even thought to try to curb their enthusiasm. Rather she continues to enjoy it, thinking of it as an energizing tonic.

Maeve’s temper has always been one of a slow burn that rarely ignites. She holds her own in any argument, however. As an adult, Maeve has grown to be authoritative, self-assertive, and yes she is still very serious—it makes her very well suited to have taken over from her mother Fiona as the Court Healer and close confidant. She is always professional and calm and has a good bedside manner. More than that, however, Maeve has a big heart that most trust instinctively and a willingness to be the shoulder to cry on as well as simply being a good listener. She is also able to be the strength in any crisis, for whoever needs it.

Despite her seriousness, since they were young Maeve has been secretly envious of her youngest brother Riordan’s ability to laugh and bring smiles and happiness to others. It always seemed to her to be a kind of magic completely different from Healing Craft, but nearly as effective in helping to recover from many kinds of trauma or illness. For Maeve, one of the hardest, potentially longest-lasting, effects of the situation with her brother Ciaran and Honora Devlin is that it has made Riordan be serious and she quietly mourns the loss of his lightheartedness as much as she mourns the pain her brother Ciaran feels from his breaking and the pain of Honora’s trauma.

Likes:

Her work; being Loreniel’s Court Healer allows her to utilize her strengths while remaining close with her family and friends.

Riordan’s cheerfulness; the youngest of Maeve’s brothers has always been able to bring a smile to her face even when she is having the worst of bad days. His antics are nearly almost always good for a laugh.

Gardening; Maeve’s flower garden is a source of comfort to her. She often brings seedlings from her garden into the sickrooms of her patients, convinced that the colorful blossoms assist in the healing process.

Dislikes:

Loreniel’s inability or unwillingness to ask for help; Lore is one of Maeve’s oldest friends and it breaks her heart to watch her friend work so hard to shoulder the responsibilities of the Territory all by herself. Maeve wishes her friend had someone she would ask for help; she does whatever she can for Lore as Court Healer.

Rainy days; the grey skies, chill in the air, and dampness always make Maeve just a little depressed. Even when her work keeps her indoors, Maeve prefers to have the brightness of sunshine pouring in her windows.

Violence; Maeve hates it when patients are brought to her as a result of violence.

Fears:

Losing her family; the Doyles are a close-knit family group and Maeve specifically fears being unable to Heal her family.

The strife in Scelt; one of Maeve’s biggest fears is that the division of Scelt will lead to more work than she can handle alone—that she will fail just when Loreniel and the territory need her skills the most.

Craft Strengths:

Healing; Maeve’s Jewels, both Birthright and Offering, are of a darkness to give strength and versatility to her Healing Craft.

Communication; Maeve finds it easy to communicate on physic threads in any situation at any time.

Craft Weaknesses:

Travel; Maeve does not like traveling the Winds—it is never easy for her.

Hearth Craft; Maeve is a disaster in the kitchen. She can barely scramble an egg and have it be edible.

Life Story

Family:
    Mother: Fiona Doyle//Summer Sky to Opal Healer

    Father: Devin Doyle//Yellow to Summer Sky Prince

    Siblings: Rorie Doyle//Rose to Opal Warlord [28]

    Ciaran Doyle//Broken White to Rose Prince [25]

    Riordan Doyle//Rose to Purple Dusk Warlord [22]

    Siona Doyle//Yellow to Summer Sky witch, Healer-in-training [18]

     
    History:

    As the oldest of five children, Maeve helped her mother with her siblings from an early age. Her Healing talents began manifesting at the age of seven; the family joke was that Rorie and Ciaran’s toddler antics forced their older sister to develop Healing abilities. She was certainly able to observe and practice  Healing plenty of times with them and with Riordan and Siona when they were born as well. Her family has been close with the Devlins as she was growing up and they continue to be as close as her own family. Maeve was especially excited when her sister was born and the two sisters have been particularly close with each other despite the thirteen year difference in their ages—even more so once Siona began to show signs of Healing talent herself.

    Maeve applied herself to her studies as she trained with her mother, learning all she could of Healing Craft. She traveled with her mother and Loreniel Killan for several years during her training, always learning as much as she could about anything she was taught, her seriousness allowing her to do nothing but succeed. On these circuits, she Healed Blood and Landen alike, without much thought to the social differences of her patients. She has watched the prank wars between her own younger siblings and the Devlin children with amusement, though she has rarely, if ever, joined in the foolery. Although Maeve had many friends growing up, both among her extended family and among her neighbors, Maeve has never really had any romance in her life; indeed, she’s never really thought about wanting it. Rather her attention has always been taken by first caring for her family, then learning, and recently by her position as Court Healer.

    When Fiona left with Lorenial’s grandmother Daveil, Maeve was asked to take over as Court Healer for Lorenial, and Maeve began organizing the hospital wing with a strong sense of being exactly where she belonged. Being a dark Jeweled Healer, Maeve knew that there really wasn’t any other place for her to be. She has held that position now for only a few years but it suits the serious young woman well, both her abilities and her personality. Maeve runs her domain competently, working well with the other Healers despite the occasional disagreement or simple dislike of another person. If she had her way, no patient would ever enter the hospital wing with a feeling of fear.


    Show us What You've Got

    Writing Sample:

    Maeve stood alone in the center of the large, airy main room of the Healer’s wing. She’d spent a lot of time here growing up as she trained with her mother and the other healers, but this time it was different. As of today, just this afternoon in fact, this was her domain; not her mother’s any longer. Lore had asked her to be Court Healer. It pleased her that her oldest friend trusted her and wanted her to stand beside her while she worked to turn the territory around.

    The serious young woman pivoted, almost wishing she could convince herself to do a victory dance like Riordan or Siona would do. This was her space! It was hard to believe, but Maeve knew she would have to work hard to fill her mother’s shoes. First though, she decided, she needed to put her own touch on the hospital so she would always know that what happened here was her responsibility.

    Maeve wandered through the room, rearranging supplies and placing potted plants from her own garden by each of the beds and on each windowsill. She eventually came to the room that had been her mother’s private workroom; it was empty now, waiting for her to organize the boxes of her own supplies stacked by the door. She pulled the first of her boxes over to the shelves and began placing her things just the way she preferred them. It was best she get her things set up now, while she had a few minutes alone.


    Petitions (if any):

    Permission to adopt: Jamie is enthusiastic about my taking on Maeve Doyle, but if I need anyone else’s approval in addition to Jamie’s I would like to request it now.

    Maeve’s Jewels: these Jewels were selected by Jamie, the original creator of the NPC I’m adopting although I am unsure if she rolled for them or just picked them. Maeve has been present in several threads pre-server move as an NPC, and the fact that she is a dark jeweled Healer seems to have been a rather integral element of her participation in these events (such as Honora’s rescue). I would rather not change her Jewels as I think they play a large part of Maeve’s suitability for her role as Court Healer, but I will abide by the admins’ decision on this.

    So I think I am ready for review. I know I am missing a fear; I cannot decide on one. Since I have a petition for her jewels, I am hoping to go ahead and start the review process while I decide on the final fear.

    Thank you!

    My stamp of approval is on Maeve, but since I am the one who established her Jewels I'd like to have another admin's approval. Thanks!
