Re: Madelynn Noventa

-Brief Personality: Madelynn is driven, focused, and confident. She knows what she wants and goes for it without hesitation. She has no trouble speaking her mind and displeasure, and can have a bit of a temper at times. At the same time, she's friendly, fun-loving, and relatively easy to get along with. Her father calls her his 'firecracker'.

While Maddie is excellent at the personal relations required for her job, she's never been good when it comes to her own personal relationships. She might have no trouble speaking her mind, but sharing her inner feelings is another matter. Consequently, her relationships never last very long. And she tells herself that it's fine because her job is so demanding (but really, it's not fine at all).

She's fiercely loyal and protective of those she cares for, insanely stubborn, and relatively self-aware. Constantly striving for perfection in her work, she has a tendency to work too hard. It's difficult for her to slow down and to stop once she's gotten going. She needs to see it through to the end and has difficulty focusing on anything else until she has.


-Brief Background: Maddie grew up in privelige in the upper sector of Midgar. Her father is a wealthy businessman and her mother a Wutain house-wife that he met on a business trip. She's always been loved and cared for, never wanted for anything. Her life has been relatively normal, and she gets her drive and example of how to be from her father mostly.

She went to college to get a degree in business, worked her way up from the bottom, and just recently because Shinra's VP.

-Skills: Fencing, horseback riding, drawing.
-Occupation: Vice President of Shinra Inc.
-Weapon(s): None, though Maddie could use a fencing sword if one was hanging around.

Third person writing sample:

Eyeing the plant in her window with consternation, Madelynn Noventa sighed. No matter what she did with the thing - watered it, fed it expensive plant food - it never thrived. How hard could it possibly be to take care of one plant? She was beginning to think she had the death touch. And this adventure with the plant was making her have serious doubt about being a mother one day; who knew what she would do to a baby.

"Can't you take pity on me and grow?" She asked it, sipping her coffee and playing half-heartedly with a piece of toast. She wasn't much of a breakfast person.

Making business deals in Shinra's behalf, using her charm to manipulate people into getting what she wanted... that all came naturally. It also seemed liked it should be far harder than growing a plant. Especially when she'd researched before hand, followed all the instructions, and treated it like a delicate child.

Snorting, she turned away and glanced at the paper on her kitchen table. "It's like when I try to make cookies..."

It didn't matter how closely she followed the recipe. They always turned out strangely deformed and tasting slightly off.

"I'm obviously not meant to be a housewife."
