    Maya has no idea of her beauty. She has large green eyes and dark hair that she usually wears in a loose braid. Maya rarely wears makeup and is most comfortable padding around her cottage in bare feet, a pair of loose linen pants and a cotton smock.

    Mayahuel is initially shy but pleasant, definitely more comfortable observing others than having the attention focused on her. She carries herself with the quiet gracefulness of a woman who has earned the life she leads. Maya tries very hard not to burden others with her problems and is very private about her own heartaches. Anyone who deals with her will find her to be friendly, loyal, and kindhearted.

    Most would never guess by looking at her the dark years she suffered through to finally find her bright place in this secret world. Those who get glimpses of her true fierceness are usually friend or foe. The latter rarely survive. If you take the time to get to know her there will be that moment--the one where she smiles at you and all you can think of is how you never noticed before how stunningly beautiful she really is.
    Maya lives in Ealdwic where she shares a small cottage near the park with her beloved Mihai Stroi. She works as a Senior Consultant with Knightsbridge Consulting. Mayahuel also owns an art gallery called Sol y Luna that is located near the Rackham Theatre. It houses fine art and fair trade imports from different locations, offering products to large and small design companies around the globe.
  • Biography:
    Mayahuel is descended from a Huastecan deity by the name of Tlazolteotl. Her parents divorced when she was small and she spent most of her time as a child with her grandmother. Maya's father died just before her fifteenth birthday. After her father's death, Mayahuel was sent to boarding school in Mexico City by her mother.
    The factions had been grudgingly working together for several years on clandestine projects to train identified progeny of the old gods for various ends. Mayahuel’s mother, a Templar who was assigned to the Mexico City offices, was identified in the normal course of business as being descended from a Huastecan deity by the name of Tlazolteotl, a fierce goddess who had many talents. Tlazolteotl was also known as the Filth-Eater--something of little interest to anyone until the London incident. Before Maya was even born, ironclad agreements had been drafted as to her placement if she ever showed any promise related to her maternal bloodline.

    Once Maya came of age she returned to London against her mother's wishes with the expectation that she would begin her training with the Templars just as her parents had done before her. While in London, she fell in love with a promising young Templar agent named Jeremiah Clarke. The couple was blissfully happy together and planned to be married. Plans changed when Jeremiah became gravely ill shortly after his return from an archaeological expedition to Egypt.

    He was immediately whisked away to an undisclosed location underneath the city but Maya was determined to find him. She managed to bypass multiple security measures and broke into the hidden infirmary, completely disregarding the quarantine. When the Medical Security teams got back into the ward with the intention of dispatching both Mayahuel and Jeremiah, they were shocked to see the both of them curled together sleeping as if nothing had happened. Neither Maya nor Jeremy had any memory of the night, but footage from security cameras showed Maya had locked herself in with him, crawling into his bed and whispering to him for hours in a language the Templars had never heard.

    Whatever it was--the power of love, the will of a little demigoddess, or a scientific anomaly--Jeremiah was cured. Clean. In spite of attempts to keep the incident secret, the Dragon immediately notified Richard Sonnac it was time to honor the bargain made years prior. Maya was summarily brought into one of the Templar offices, sedated and handed over to agents from Seoul. The "training" she endured there was part of the ongoing experiment called The Ablution Project.

    Regardless of any models or protocols tried, Maya was never able to replicate what had occurred with Jeremy in London. This did not keep her handlers from pushing her to breaking points again and again. It was a brutal experience, one that left her with no memory or connection with anyone when she was finally allowed to leave.

    There was much struggle and heartache before she finally found her way to the person she is now. In the end, love was what saved her and love is the only thing that she still believes in with her whole heart.

    Project Ablution was deemed a failure aside from a minor success at an obscure site several hours from Mexico City. None of the factions thought the outcome worth the trouble to try repeating. Mayahuel officially separated from the Dragon with an uneasy but respectful understanding that she can still come and go as she pleases when in Seoul.
  • Abilities:
    Maya speaks Spanish and English fluently. She loves art, although she's given it up professionally to pursue more of a curator's role at the gallery. She is an adept researcher and writer. She loves stories that focus on the histories of folk both mundane and magical. An avid watcher of people, she has a talent for listening and making room for others to share their worlds with her.

    Although the Dragon consider Maya to be a failed experiment, her exposure to the filth combined with her maternal bloodline have left her with the ability to see who/what lies beneath the filth. She can sometimes even manage a rudimentary sort of communication with the "before" person or creature. This is an ability that while useful can be quite difficult for her. It's hard to see who people used to be and how much they are truly suffering, especially knowing that there is nothing that can be done to help them.

    Maya has other abilities through her maternal bloodline, some of which she uses often and others that she rarely employs. She can see and is able to persuade others to confess their deepest secrets, fears, desires...anything they would normally keep to themselves. It is said that she can enhance fertility, although she has no children of her own. Her darker powers include causing sickness of various natures from mild to lethal. Her talents are linked to both the sun and the moon with her most powerful days being those that include the number 5 and nights of the waxing or full moon.

    Because of the years she spent in captivity, she has an extreme discomfort with small enclosed spaces and can be mistrustful of others. She is good at solving puzzles and making things with her hands as these were activities that kept her mind occupied during her confinement.
