I, Maxine Kara Leigh Dayton, was born and raised in New Orleans to a famous realtor and a very superstitious mother. Me and my older brother Andrew were raised hearing Norse myths of ghosts and magical beings by mother, whose family was originally from Iceland; but I never knew of the tales that were recorded in my father's Brazilian history, for he was practically gone all the time. I was so fascinated, I decided to study more about it: Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Aztec... you name it, I've probably mastered it. After finishing school, I decided to travel the world for a bit and observe the cultures, just to add more dimension and information to the already extensive knowledge I had. Right after I turned 19, I was contacted by the PIB and was instantly recruited.
Most people say I am a studious girl, yet they do not know how my story actually goes: in my freshman year, my mother gave her life to malaria, and my great-grandmother took care of us instead. My father was diagnosed with colon cancer, and recently is going through chemotherapy. I am not close to my father, for he shunned me for possessing magical abilities. Funny for him to say, they say he is descended from an iara, a Brazilian siren of the sort.
As far as personality goes, I am a patient person... and a very curious one as well. You may see me around researching about Indian folklore or Welsh beasts. I do not like to be disturbed unless it is very urgent business, and I am a very good listener, especially if it is in my interest. I am not one to list favorites, but I enjoy aboriginal myths the most. Something is just so interesting about them.
