Full Name: Maiyah
Nick names: None
Job: Thief/Treasure Hunter, Farmhand
Hair: Red, limp, short.
Skin: Mildly tanned.
Body type: Slender, athletic.
Over all description: Maiyah stands her maximum at a less-than-impressive height of 5'2", weighing a light 112 lbs. She's lender but with muscle, and a thin layer of fat laying underneath her lightly tanned skin. At the top of her head is a limp mop of short red hair, drifting over her face and neck in thin layers (though she tends to keep her hair out of her eyes most of the time). Her eyes are a dingy pale green with hints of blue in the sunlight. The outfit she adorns is mostly outdoorsy, consisting of a brown tank-top over a black t-shirt bra, jeans held up by a black leather belt, black boots, brown leather fingerless grip gloves on both hands, and a holster belted to her middle, carrying her prized Jericho 941 pistol. When traveling into the city (or anywhere in general), she can usually be seen wearing a cargo jacket.
Likes: Treasure of just about any kind, the color purple, sunny days, climbing, working with the horses on her mother's farm, baked potatoes, yellow roses, instrumental music, ancient history.
Dislikes: Conrad (ex-boyfriend), other thieves, burnt food, being shot/shot at, not being able to find her ruins, being conned out of a job.
Over all: Maiyah is a thief, and thus, acts like one. She's cocky, confident, sarcastic. She's a colorful character at best, but has her dark side. She can be friends with certain people, mainly those who aren't out to dig her into a hole or disrupt her thievery, or con her. Her mouth is fairly dirty, cursing more often than she probably should for a young lady. When it comes to making friends, Maiyah isn't all that interested. Trust is something she doesn't give out freely, and is ready to counter her clients should they try something funny against her. When she's in thief mode, she's strictly confidential, professional, and on the mark. She allows no room for error, and while some of the time she plays by ear, she doesn't go in without some kind of plan or preparation. She's emotionally stable, and is taking a break from guys after her first and last boyfriend stabbed her epically in the back and left her for dead.
Family- Ingrid (Mother, deceased), Samuel (Father)
Mate- None; Conrad Mayward (EX-boyfriend)
Attacks: None. Ki is LOCKED.
- Deceptive - Maiyah's a liar. When it comes to other thieves or people who might pose a threat to her operations or code of ethics, she'll deceive them to either throw them off track or get rid of them.
- Deal with the Devil - Maiyah has a sick tendency to play the side that pays her the most. That particular side is usually not the most legitimate, being the black market or a rich lunatic.
- Snark - Maiyah's a young lady with a snarky attitude. She's more or less a bitch if you end up catching her in a mood.
- Not-So-Hesitant - While Maiyah does hold the lives of others with some value, it is not far from her to shoot down another person in cold blood. On heists, she's shot and been shot at by other thieves. She's not going around killing people, but she is known to kill other thieves who threaten her integrity and the success of her heist.
- Crazy Woman - Maiyah's very much a woman indeed and hates having that challenged, or insulted. When her integrity as a woman is questioned, she gets nasty and yells a lot, insults and curses running rampant until someone calms her down or knocks her out. It's almost comical if you're not on the receiving end.
- Knowledgeable - Maiyah is very much in the know of her ancient history, as well as what's been going on in the modern world. She makes it a point to know what everyone else knows: The police, the government, even Capsule Corp. Though it should be noted that Maiyah only gathers information that's relevant to what's going on, rather than Capsule Corps' new and improved whatchumacallit.
- Strictly Professional - Maiyah is strictly a professional thief. Meaning she doesn't rob banks or pickpockets people or steals from museums or shoplifts. Petty crime is actually more of an insult to her being a Thief, and while it did help her get to where she is now, she no longer practices it.
Maiyah was born to Ingrid and Samuel in a small village town outside the larger cities and more into the rural areas. Ingrid, her mother, was a farmer woman, owning the farm plantation upon which the family lived. And Samuel was the sheriff of the town itself. Maiyah grew up a problem child. Aside from working on the farm with her mother, Maiyah was usually committing some kind of thievery, whether it was food, pencils, small trinkets, or even someone's wallet. When she was old enough, she did time in the small county jail under order and the watchful eye of her father. While it didn't help her to not steal at all, it drove her to keep herself from getting caught.
When Maiyah was 7 years old, the two Saiyans Nappa and Vegeta touched down on Earth, destroying a city and then leaving to a piece of empty wilderness to fight. Living with her parents outside the city at the time, Maiyah was only aware through televised broadcasts of the happenings, and it wasn't long until the commotion stopped and everything on Earth went back to normal. The incident otherwise was nothing but a distant memory, and Maiyah began going to school, and was put to work on her mother's farm. Since then, school and farmwork came first before stealing, usually pushing that to the weekends whenever she had spare time. Her grades in school were pretty fair, and her increasing interest in archaeology, geography and ancient history gave her a focus, something that her parents were deeply relieved and happy with. It was when she graduated high school, she revealed to them that she was going to become a Treasure Hunter, much to their dismay.
Around 11 years of age, the androids came, luckily missing the town in which they resided and thus sparing them from a violent death. Cell was just as much a threat when he came onto the scene, but their little village was also ignored.
She continued working on her mother's farm after the cell and android crises, earning a separate wage and attending attending high school. During the summers when she wasn't attending small classes, she practiced climbing around natural basins, plateaus, and mountainsides. On a nature hike, age 16, she met a young man named Conrad, who happened to be a professional thief and Treasure Hunter himself. When she expressed interest in the field to him, he took her on her first hunt to an ancient ruin to the very south of the northern continent. It was there that they began a relationship, both business and otherwise.
Maiyah and Conrad dated for 6 years, working together to find treasures of the ancient world across all corners of the earth. They were interrupted however when Majin Buu and Babidi began running rampant across the earth, destroying everything in their path. Conrad met his end followed by Maiyah to Super Buu and his attack that effectively killed everyone on the planet from Kami's Lookout, but were both revived by Vegeta's request via the dragonballs. While they were both skeptical to the Saiyan's request for their energy donation, they still were swayed to raise their hands and offer what they had.
Life went on after the defeat of the evil Kid Buu, and Maiyah and Conrad still kept their relationship alive. It was on their last venture however 4 years later when Conrad pulled a gun on her in the middle of an escape from an underground ruin. He trapped her into a cage and escaped the ruins with the treasure, and Maiyah remained with a broken heart and a vengeful gleam in her eye. Packing her own gun, she blasted out of the cage and escaped the ruins. She never saw Conrad again and was 22 years old at the time of the incident. Maiyah returned home, angry and hurt, but never mentioned Conrad to her parents. When she was 27, she moved into her own small home a mile or two away from her parents' house, working on the farm for a lively wage.
She made treasure hunting a side job, taking requests for excavation from all sides: the black market, other thieves, even museums who offer top-dollar pay for her to find these delicate trinkets. Maiyah makes a hefty living in her little home, and lives peacefully with her dog Connor, a large black pitbull, having gotten him as a small puppy several years prior to the current present. As a professional thief, she makes offers to several parties and goes excavating for them, but not without a price, and a hefty one at that. Her ventures are often dangerous, requiring her to fight against other thieves for the prize, and even killing them.
Maiyah sat on her motorcycle in the middle of nowhere, staring at a map with her boots grazing the dusty ground beneath her. She didn't understand what was going on. The map was up to date, and she was at the right coordinates, but the ruins were nowhere to be found. She looked up, a creased glare etched upon her face. Her lips tightened and she looked back down on the map. "Piece of junk. I knew I should have gone north. The guy that gave me this map was a pothead. I knew I shouldn't have trusted him." She growled as she looked back up and squinted her eyes. She rolled the map back up and stuffed it into the back of her pants before revving up her cycle again and rolling off towards the northwest.
"If I don't find it soon, then I'll be hours behind schedule... Damn it," she shook her head as she leaned down closer against the motorcycle. She headed on for a few miles, slowly edging from northwest to north and searching for any signs of an ancient civilization in the distance. In the corner of her eye, she spotted a small, broken down crag and turned, heading towards it, "This better be it. If not I'm gonna be pissed."
