✦ Maybelene was created by a rich brittish merchant who lived with only his wife. Maybelene never knew the true reason as to why she was made to be, but he brought her here as a replacement of their beloved deseased daughter who died of plauge.
✦ Her origin is situated in Europe where her creator used to live until they both frequently sailed together over the seas on Madeline’s world debut. (Madeline was her old stage name)
✦ Maybelene used to be young maiden created purely for on stage performances. More so a visual attraction. He loved dressing her up as well. Her creator intended for Maybelene to be a pristine woman as she is.
✦ After some unfortunate events..(I cannot reveal them yet ;-; ) Maybelene being the sympathetic and 'too kind' of a woman she was made to be, left her creator's side so he would no longer be humiliated. She thought he was better off without her. Her determined creator's attempt to fully restore her body was obviously not a total success, and without enough coverage, she still looked broken and damaged. At that point, Maybelene knew that 'Madeline' was long gone.. That day she and her creator were supposed to voyage back to London after being shunned at every turn, Maybelene never showed up to board the ship.
✦ Maybelene does indeed miss her creator dearly. He was a kind old man and essentially gave her some free reign despite being made to please others and earn him large fortunes. However, she had an intuition that he will live better without her, now as only a burden.
✦ The mask Maybelene wears is to hide her permanently damaged eyes. She can not replace them, those keep her soul contained. To outsiders, she was almost like a possessed discarded manequin. Maybelene can't stand the thought of this, so she goes out of her way to create a new look for herself. Hence, she also drops her stage name entirely. The mysterious 'Maybelene' woman of Masquerade, was born.✦ As she adapted to her new lifestyle, Maybelene had become quite the lover of fashion and has a particular old Victorian taste~ Maybelene prefers long dresses to cover up the leftover scars still in her legs.
✦ Now being mute wasn't going to help her. So once she meets a very committed gentleman by the name of Sammy Lawrence, he helps her learn how to pick up a musical career in instruments~
