Good personality traits: Loyal, Charismatic, Witty, Caring
Bad personality traits: Impulsive, Defensive, Anxious
Mood character is most often in: Happy
Sense of humor: Loves jokes. All jokes. Just not to diffuse a situation. That will only make her more angry.
Character’s greatest joy in life: Singing is her truest love in life.
Character’s greatest fear: Losing more people she cares for.
Why? After witnessing her parents' slaughter and being unable to do anything about it, the slightest thought of someone she knows getting hurt or disappearing sends her into panic.
What single event would most throw this character’s life into complete turmoil? If Maureen was unable to protect someone she cares for and they were seriously injured or killed, especially in front of her, she would most certainly be lost.
Character is most at ease when: Relaxing, playing her music in peace, without a care in the world.
Most ill at ease when: She feels she's done something wrong, or that she is at fault for something. Guilt eats her alive.
Enraged when: People are judged pre-emptively.
Depressed or sad when: Thinking about her parents.
Priorities: Music, the people she cares for, and making enough money to be ready to run at any time.
"There's a fire burning in our souls. If we put it out, then we'll all run cold. So cut yourself down from that noose that's swinging, and reattach your arms so we can get gun-slingin'."
Essentially, Maureen knows there's a lot of reasons for her to be sad. But if she lets herself be sad about it all, she's going to begin losing that passion that drives her. So she has to cut herself away from the sad stuff and "get gun-slingin'", or, for her anyway, so she can keep pushing and having a good time. I'm not sure how else to explain it.
Greatest strength: Her wits usually save her from bad situations that her impulsiveness puts her in.
Greatest vulnerability or weakness: Her impulsiveness tends to get the better of her when she's angry.
Hometown: Born in Lakeshire, Redridge, but has travelled all over to perform.
Type of childhood: Nomadic. Full of warmth, love, and good times.
First memory: Watching her Mama and Papa perform together on the streets of a town in Loch Modan.
Most important childhood memory: Watching her parents be slaughtered by a death knight.
Why? It has affected her to this day. She wanders endlessly, trying to move past it, but there are wounds that cannot be healed. She covers up the sadness with a clever smile, catchy tunes, and a joke or two, but she's deeply scarred by it. She's trying to move on enough to at least be comfortable around Death Knights, as she has found they aren't bad company.
Current location: Stormwind
Currently living with: No one at the moment, but may have a roommate soon.
Pets: Morji the Frostwolf Pup
Occupation: Visiting Professor of SWU. Also, a bard for extra funds on the side.
Mother: Rose Goodwin (Formerly "Rose Johnson")
Relationship with her: She's dead. But Maureen holds close in her heart. Rose was the more popular performer between her parents. She was often the most busy. Maureen has always wanted to be as beautiful and skilled as her mother was.
Father: Reed Goodwin
Relationship with him: Reed was the back-up, sitting on the sidelines with a flute or a drum, backing Rose up and further elevating her performance. Maureen once asked him why he didn't perform as much as Mama. "You don't always get to be the lead character, Maureen. Sometimes you get to be a supporting role, and that's just as important." He smiled and patted her head.

Food: Beef is her favorite kind of meat.
Literature: Legends and stories- fiction or otherwise, she likes a good tale!

How he/she would spend a rainy day: Sitting in the window and writing songs. Also brooding, if she had a bad sleep the night before.
Spending habits: Has almost all of her funds allocated to various things. Budgeting is important on the road. Old habits die hard.

Other drugs: NO.
Extremely skilled at: She's a skilled fighter, if only for the purpose of protecting herself and the ones she loves.
Extremely unskilled at:

Optimist or pessimist: Maureen tries hard to be optimistic. Usually she succeeds, but occasionally... *shrug*
Introvert or extrovert: She walks the wobbly line between.
Daredevil or cautious? Depends on the situation. She's cautious around those who have given her a reason to be. Otherwise, she's pretty carefree.
Logical or emotional: Emotional. Hands down. She's intelligent but her emotions win out if the two sides decide to disagree.
Disorderly and messy or methodical and neat: Not insanely messy? But she's definitely not a neat freak. Think average teenage bedroom level of order.
Prefers working or relaxing: Relaxing is usually her thing. When she is "working", it's often in a performative way so it's still not that different.
Confident or unsure of himself/herself: Confident until something goes wrong, then unsure and anxious for a solid week.

Currently Omitted for purpose of figuring it out.
