Like most of those who join the Spring Court, Sheila is running from mortal life. She is the daughter of well-to-do parents working in the tech industry, and safely upper middle class. As a child, she wanted for very little; except, perhaps, freedom. Competitive and outgoing, she had much of her future decided for her at an early age. Her parents never doubted that she would go into technology or business like themselves, and continue the MacQueen family legacy of success. But as Sheila aged, she grew more and more dissatisfied with what the world had planned for her.
In high school, she discovered martial arts as a means through which to vent her anger and frustration. Her parents agreed to enroll her, grudgingly, as Karate was hardly the kind of pastime they thought beneficial to their daughter’s professional development. Still, they consented on the condition that Sheila keep her grades up, and the girl threw herself into training with a passion. She climbed the ranks of the dojo quickly, and had achieved her black belt by the time she graduated and was shipped off to college.
It was an education Sheila had never really contemplated. As the only child of wealthy parents, that she should attend university was not a question. But once escaped from the constant supervision of Mr. and Mrs. MacQueen, Sheila found herself unable to cope with the world around her. With no goal, no guiding force, nothing to give her life real meaning other than the expectations of her parents, Sheila succumbed to partying, alcohol, and drugs. She dropped out of MIT in her sophomore year, and the once idyllic lifestyle she had lived dried up like the pride of her folks. With no money and no degree, Sheila threw herself into the only thing she had left; the fight.
Outgoing and fiery, Sheila does well to hide her troubled past with a wide smile, rough vernacular, and husky guffaws. Volatile and passionate, she is Mark’s polar opposite; social where he is aloof, active where he is thoughtful, extrovert instead of introvert. Still, she is searching for herself. She gives little thought to the impacts of her actions and decisions, and occasionally entertains low moods, where she withdraws from public life and loses herself in practice, or the bottle.
