Genevieve Mayfair

Lady of Magnolia Manor

0 · 99 views · located in Earth

a character in “One More Chance”, as played by Jane Storm


Full name: Genevieve Mayfair
Age: 25
Gender: F
Morality: good
Class: noble


Of noble birth and English origin, Lady Genevieve is known in society as a woman with modern ideas and a keen interest for parties and other social gatherings. She is the perfect host and a demanded guest, often depicted as the life of the party. In reality, Lady Mayfair has high moral standards and likes to make sure everyone abides by the rules. She keeps her estate with an iron hand and a gentle smile, depending on the situation. Romantic and wise, she loves her husband almost to the point of sacrifice, yet her love is not blind. Knowing her husband’s ways she knows when to act and when to stay in the shadows when it comes to his usual misdeeds. Everyone in the house respects and loves her mostly because she treats everyone equally.


The mansion, the garden and other properties are her and her husbands possessions, except for the servants – unlike Lord Byron Mayfair who considers them to be objects.


Loved by her parents, Genevieve was always a good daughter, the last child in a family of six. She was the only girl who could read and write, her thirst for knowledge being often compared to her brothers’ thirst for women and parties. She met Byron Mayfair at one of the gatherings started by her father. She liked his forward manner and strong self confidence and loved him dearly ever since. Having a keen interest for the occult, Genevieve discovered the truth about their origins and past lives through her visions (some of them being blurry dreams at night, others – more vivid – after she has a drink or two)

Pragmatic as she is, she questioned them and is still doing historical research on their family tree. As far as she knows, only two lives were important in her past existences: she was a vestal priestess and queen of France, Catherina de Medici. One of her friends, Emma Chambers -known as Madam Fuchsia only in close circles - is a fortune teller and a clairvoyant. One night Genevieve brought her a bone comb and one of her husband’s pocket watches and after touching them, Emma related an episode from their unknown past in Egypt.

Her childhood was happy although her father, a puritan, always focused his attention on her religious upbringing in the wrong way. This focus has been particularly unfortunate since the first two-thirds of the nineteenth century saw a great, almost astonishing, revival of biblical typology, which left its firm impress upon Victorian literature, art, and on Genevieve’s young mind as well. Her thirst for knowledge and personal opinions clashed with her father’s narrow vision and their peaceful home was often a battle ground for their conflicts. Only her mother’s patience and diplomatic interventions kept their father –daughter relationship in normal limits.

Things got worse when young Genevieve refused to marry the man her father chose as future husband based on financial interests. She swore she would never marry and kept her promise until at the age of 21 (everyone considered her an old maid by then) when she met Byron Mayfair, a wealthy young man from another class, without noble origins. The father threatened to disinherit Genevieve, but died from a heart attack before he could put his plans into action. Stricken with grief, she married Byron and got Magnolia Manor along with a forest and an orchard, her brothers and sisters getting the bigger share from their parent’s properties and valuables. After her mother’s death the first son also inherit the main estate.
At the moment, Lady Genevieve keeps in touch with two of her brothers, Jonathan and Harold, the other brother and two sisters being out of the country (one serving the King and the others married with foreigners)

So begins...
