Miriam Gracey
« on: June 07, 2018, 01:37:09 PM »



NAME:  Miriam Gracey
NICKNAMES (IF ANY):  Miri
DATE OF BIRTH AND AGE (AS OF YEAR 845):  28 DOB: July 2nd
PLACE OF BIRTH: Krolva District
GENDER:   Female
MEMBER GROUP:  Garrison (Member of Mitabi Jarnach's Elite Team)
FACE CLAIM:  Kaela Yoshinaga from B: The Begining.


APPEARANCE:  Miriam has a solid build and is of just below average height for a woman.  She has shoulder length blonde hair that she prefers to wear loose and brown eyes. She wears glasses with a slight cat eye and when on duty, she utilizes a strappy headband to keep them in place.

Miri is reasonably pretty, though no one other than her husband Owen would call her a raving beauty. She squints much of the time and that adds a severity to her look, but that is softened by the smile she normally wears.

PERSONALITY: Miriam is laid back but very dutiful. She knows when to let things slide and while to be more of a stickler for rules and regulations. She thinks rules are there for a reason...but sometimes the reason is idiotic. That being said, she greatly respects her team leader and will follow their orders to the best of her ability.


STRENGTHS: 
~ Compassionate but not to a fault.
~ Level headed.
~ Team player.
~ Has a sense of humor and can see the good in many situations/people.

WEAKNESSES: 
~ Is not particularly strong. She's quick and agile but does better as an assist to other physically stronger members of her team. Miri is the bait/distraction much of the time.
~ If she loses her glasses, she is a dead woman.
~ Talks about her husband and niece all the time (not so much a weakness...but can be annoying).

ASPIRATIONS:
~ Rise as high in the ranks as she can.
~ Do her part to help humanity in the war.
~ Be a good wife.
~ Care for her niece in a way that would make the girl's parents happy.
~ Learn to bake like her mother. As of right now, Miri is proving that cooking skills are not hereditary.

FEARS:
~ Failing in her duties as a soldier.
~ Anything happening to her husband or niece.
~ Water. She can be near it, but would not be able to wade in unless really pressed (or thrown).
~ Anything happening to her team. She is very loyal to her Team Leader and the other members.

HISTORY: 
Born into a comfortably working-class family in Krolva, Miriam had about as average an upbringing as possible. Her father. Ezra worked as a cobbler and her mother, Mariska helped with the business and kept the home.  The second of three children, Miriam has an older brother, Pavel and a younger sister, Regina.

From a young age, Miriam thought she would join the military. Both her mother’s older brother and father’s younger sister were members of the Garrison and Miriam always admired them. At first, it was really because she thought the roses on their jackets were pretty. As she grew older however and she learned more about the titans and the horrors they brought, she felt a pull to do her part.

Admittedly, Miri might have joined the Military Police had she ranked high enough, however she placed in the upper 20s in her class.  Having no interest in the Survey Corps, Miri happily went into the Garrison.

While serving as a general rank and file, she met Owen Gracey. Miriam and a few other grunts had been called out to help deal with a very large pub brawl. Owen was not actually involved in the fight. He was just trying to make his way home and got caught up. A misplaced right hook knocked the young teacher on the ground and Miri was the one who helped him to his feet and out of the crowd.



A few days later, Owen showed up at her post with flowers and said he wanted to thank her for saving him. She was very surprised and also very pleased. Owen asked if she would ever like to get a meal with him and she was happy to accept. Free food and he was handsome in a pinched and serious sort of way.

While not a whirlwind courtship, Miri and Owen married fairly soon after that first meal and settled into a small set of rooms nearish where Miri was posted. Owen has a bit of a walk to his job, but that was alright.

For the first two years, Miri and Owen had a quiet life. Of course there was stress with Miri’s role as a soldier, but for the most part, everything was roses.

Tragedy struck when Owen’s only sibling, a sister was killed in a fire along with her husband. In a small mercy, their daughter, Tabitha, survived. In a last act of paternal love, her father was able to pass her out of a window before succumbing to his injuries.

Owen’s parents felt they were too old to properly care for the child and so Tabitha was sent to Owen and Miri. When they married, the young couple had decided to do everything possible to not have children and so this was an adjustment and was at times, very hard. Miri worked very erratic hours and neither made that much money. That combined with Tabby’s struggle with memories and nightmares of the fire - and the always looming threat of the Titans - life was very stressful for a few years.

Luckily, Owen, Miri, and Tabby were able to get through the rough spots. Miri was able to move up in the ranks and therefore bring home more pay and Owen was able to find work closer to their home. Tabby still has the occasional nightmare, but she has come through her tragedy to be a happy young girl.

Miri is now a member of one of the Garrison Elite teams. While it is one of the most dangerous positions, it is also one of the best paid - and they need the money. 

In the five years they have had her, Miri and Owen have grown to love Tabby as their own and cannot imagine their lives without her. They still do everything they can to prevent pregnancy. One child is enough.

Tabby has already lost (and basically forgotten) one mother - Miri would hate for that to happen again. While she understands that as a member of the Elite team, she may not live to see Tabby grow all the way up - Miri does her best to spend as much time with her niece as possible.

Miri is cautiously optimistic about the future. She knows the for every rotten apple in the Garrison there are four or five soldiers who would really give their all for humanity. She certainly aspires to be one of them. That is the best way to protect the two people she loves the most.
