Maisie Tiles is a girl who was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. She is described as an outgoing individual who enjoys banter and can be a little silly at times. Maisie was the type of person who could always see the light in dark times, this at times made her naive. She grew up as an only child with her parents, who had jobs flexible enough to where they would spend a month every year travelling and exploring new countries. Doing so exposed Maisie to different cultures and lifestyles. From a young age, Maisie prefered going to third world countries. She loved to help others and focused her energy on making a difference to others lives.
Maisie was fresh out of High School and was accepted into University to study Paramedicine. In 2017 Maisie was into the first 6 months of her course when on winter break and spontaneously decided she would travel to Russia.
While she was in Russia word began to spread about an infection, which was spreading from the south in Chernarus. All flights - both nationally and internationally - were cancelled and Maisie found herself trapped. Within two weeks, internet and cell service had been dropped and Maisie had now lost all communication with home. Maisie was desperate and she made a plan to go south, to find someone with a boat who can take her back home.
On her way down Maisie was captured by a group - whose name has never been revealed to her. It was discovered that she had a blood type of O-, so they held her hostage and used her as a blood bank. She was there a year before the group had been taken down by another group who brought Maisie - now going by the name Maze - back to their base. There, she was given basic supplies and the leader of the group gave her the option to stay with them and train further in a field of her choosing or leave and do what she pleased. Maze decided to leave, as what got her through to the last year of torture was the boat she so desperately wanted.
Maze has now entered Chernarus via a checkpoint two years after the outbreak, the leaves on the trees are clearly turning orange. She doesn't speak of the last 2 years, she is still that same positive person she was but is now much more aware.
