She is tall, and muscular, with strong shoulders and wide hips. Her hands, beneath the heavy gloves are callused, with the skin of her palm like tanned leather. The strong muscles play beneath pale freckled skin as she raises the hammer, without much visible effort. She let the hammer fall, once, twice, thrice, rhythmically. A little while later, the red-hot iron is shaped into a crescent shape and the metal is cooled in water, the hiss sending steam up towards her plain face, reddish from heat and exertion. She wipes sweat and stray tresses of chestnut coloured hair from her brow with a forearm scarred with old burns. Her long hair is kept tightly braided, away from her hazel-coloured eyes.
Mae spent her first few years in the sprawling city of Ard-Amrach, though her memories of that time and place are hazy. After the death of her father in an accident, she and her family left the city. They wandered for a time, her embittered mother finding faults with every village. Finally, they settled in Niddrie, more because her mother tired of running from the past than her being actually satisfied with the village. Maeveen spent her childhood in the village, apprenticed to the smith. She grew up, fell in love, got married, and suffered several miscarriages.
