Name: Abigail Sarah Maitland
Appearance: Abigail Maitland is 5'2'', with blue eyes and short white-blonde hair. During her time in the Cretaceous, her hair grew out some and into dreadlocks. She's leaner now than she was in the Cretaceous, and doesn't wear as much makeup. She didn't have any during that year and grew out of the habit.
Role in the ARC: Menagerie Keeper/On the Team (goes to the sites of the anomalies)
Personality: Abigail Maitland is the type of girl that doesn’t let on her emotions to other people, even those that she has known for a very long time. She has to trust someone exceptionally well to actually let them in to the deeper part of her feelings, and even then, she often doesn’t let on the true extent of what’s going through her mind. Part of this comes from when she was young.
Her parents weren’t the type of people who were ready or understanding of kids. Being the older sister, Abby took most of the abuse for her brother, even when he was the one in trouble most of the time. Until she was fifteen, she attempted to win their love by being perfect in everything she did – but when it didn’t work, she eventually gave up and threw herself into her love for animals. As well as hindering her trust in people, the abuse in her past taught Abby to be extremely protective of those people she does care about in her life – this extends not only to Jack and Connor, but to Becker and the rest of the ARC staff as well.
Abby is fearless when it comes to most things – not in the way that Connor throws himself into situations without thinking, but that she can handle harrowing situations without the blink of an eye. When she’d first joined, she was a bit more flappable, but after the year in the Cretaceous nothing seems to bother her anymore. It’s growing as time goes on – she’s not comfortable in this world anymore, she feels out of place. She lived in a world untouched by humans and now she’s back and is seeing the damage that humans are doing. She’s tired and she’s frightened, but she’s trying not to let on that she’s suffering from PTSD.
Abby is a tomboy, but she does have a eye for viewing relationship possibilities in other people.
