Thread

Name
  • Maribel Silgraft

Birth
  • April 17th, 1868 (age 19)

Sex
  • Female

Background
  • Maribel is the daughter of Vincent Silgraft, an engineer hired to work the steam-powered machinery for the mines. Before their arrival at Tombstone, Maribel and her father lived in Providence, Rhode Island where her father worked in the Corliss Steam Engine Company as an engineer while working on his own engine models. She had been adopted by Vincent after his immigration into America from England.

    For most of her childhood Maribel was in charge of looking over the household in her father’s stead, occasionally running errands for him when he was busy working at the factory. As she grew older, her interest in machinery increased and her father saw fit to bring home unused parts for her to tamper with. Eventually she began assisting her father in his own projects, tinkering with the finer details of his engine designs.

    They moved to Tombstone on the recommendation of an old friend, who had acquired independent management of the Silverlode Mine and was looking to continue operations by using pumps to keep it from flooding. Her father saw the chance to put his engine to practice, and seized it. Now, she spends most of her time aiding her father in his work and is known as quite a “fix-it-all” around town. Because of her father’s connection to the silver mines, she is well acknowledged among the miners and the businessmen exploiting them.

Appearance
  • Maribel has a gentle face with wide cheekbones and a round chin. Her deep-set eyes are a bright green color and her eyebrows are full and softly angled. Blonde curls fall past her shoulders and lie at her breast in a braid. She stands at an average of five feet and six inches and is often seen wearing thick-soled boots, slacks adorned with a simple utility belt, plain shirts (second-hand from her father,) and a heavy-duty jacket to protect her from the hot steam of the machinery she works with.

Personality
  • Maribel is curious and intuitive when it comes to life outside of the industrial world. She’s keen on assisting people and often does when she’s not working with her father, from helping others run errands or looking after children when their parents are otherwise engaged. She believes that by understanding people in this way she can learn what they need to live a simpler life, and thus would be able to manufacture technological concepts for devices that could facilitate everyday needs. She is friendly and sympathetic, impulsive and stubborn, and at times detached from reality when working with her inventions.

Equipment
  • Various leather utility belts that can be attached to different areas of the body depending on the type of work she has to do. Her most used belt is attached at the hip and includes common tools (see tools below,) and a special removable pouch to keep the lens from pair of magnifying goggles from scratching.

  • A large backpack full of junk and spare parts recovered from unusable machinery.

  • The tools that she carries around in her belt are screwdrivers (three pairs,) a retractable measuring ruler, a pressure gauge, spare replacement gears, a pocket flashlight, a small lubricating oil dispenser and a portable hammer. Other items that she carries include a modified pocket knife and several pieces of cloth to use for wiping oil from her hands.
