    Full Name: Maiken Thyradatter
    Nicknames: Kenna
    Birthdate: January 10, 1819
    Current Age: 67
    Race: Vampire
    Occupation: Hatmaker; Seamstress to the Vampires
    Reputation: 2
    Residence: Vampire Caverns
    Social Class: Lower
    Appearance: Standing at five feet three inches tall, just above average height for the modern era but actually a little short for her home country (Norway) and era's average height, this dark red haired and hazel eyed vampiress is not afraid to be herself. Yet, in public, she rarely smiles broadly. She is left-handed.
    History:
    1819: Maiken is born to widowed mother Thyra, the only child of her husband
    1823: Maiken is orphaned by an animal attack.
    1829: Maiken is attacked by an older boy in the orphanage
    1835: Maiken runs away from the orphanage, takes up with a youth criminal gang.
    1837: Maiken is attacked by a vampire; the attack is interrupted by one of the others in the small gang. A few hours pass; Maiken turns into a vampire and massacres the small gang in bloodthirst.
    1840: Maiken's maker, Demeas, finds her and makes a deal with her. That they would travel the world and see so much. Maiken agrees to join him.
    1865: Demeas and Maiken are separated and Maiken makes her way back to Europe.
    1878: Maiken comes to the vampire caverns, with her knowledge of sewing and clothesmaking from her travels, offers to help the vampires living there remain up-to-date in their wardrobes.
    1881: Maiken picks up graverobbing for hair as a way to earn money for fabric.
    1886: Maiken is still making clothes for other vampires, but has abandoned the practice of graverobbery for the side job of hatmaking, which is now how she earns additional money, selling her pieces to a shop, with the promise they won't advertise them as handmade by a vampire.
