Maureen Violet Conners
30 November 1989
Maureen is a student at Harvard University where she is taking her first strides toward becoming a paediatric psychiatrist.
Maureen has always been a highly academic young woman, and currently is taking as full a course load as her school will allow and each semester, including summer, that is offered. She plans to get ten years of school in, at least, six.
She volunteers her time with tutoring her favourite subject, English, and by this met her boyfriend, Kaede.
Emmy, as Maureen is often called by Gramps (short for Emily Post), is a fastidious and very Proper young woman. She has always, even at a young age, preferred to dress very well and very neatly, she took her lessons in etiquette and decorum to heart, and is always well spoken and polite. Though her maternal grandfather was something of a corruptive influence, possibly genetically, as she has his habit of calling people by random nicknames — though, unlike him, she doesn’t do it to everyone nor in any and sundry circumstance.
By her own opinion she got next to no colour from her parents. With regards to features she got her mother’s striking blue eyes, her father’s blonde hair — though she did get a red tint from Yvette, and through an interesting blending of skin types she barely freckles let alone tan. Makeup quickly became as automatic to Maureen, therefore, as breathing; this has lead to teasing from Lauren and a few of her friends with variations on the idea of calling her a China doll.
Many people unaccustomed to her find Maureen a contradiction. Dressed as immaculately and primly as she is, they would expect her to be stuck up or a bit prissy at worst, certainly very squeamish and reluctant to go near even a little dust, but she isn’t. She is a very personable young woman who, while conscious of her clothes and careful of actually ruining them, is largely unconcerned with soiling her wardrobe; she will gladly engage in work on the farm, or help her parents in the garden, or perform household chores without the faintest hesitation.
