HAVE I GONE MAD?
Maiden Hatchell is twenty years old. He is currently enrolled at Walt University as a sophomore. Before coming to Los Angeles, you could typically find Maiden in his home town of London, England. He’s occasionally stopped on the streets for looking just like Elias Bender Rønnenfelt ’s doppelganger but he insists he resembles the Mad Hatter.

-, scatterbrained, uneasy, haughty.
Born with an inherited enzyme that affected the level of glucose in his body, Maiden Hatchell was never like the other children in his neighborhood. Having to watch the his blood sugar levels closely was never easy for him for he was often caught up in his own head, living fanciful daydreams while the rest of his peers had their minds more firmly rooted in reality. Mad, they called him. It was an adjective that seemed to follow him around in whispers and nothing he seemed to do could change the fact. It didn’t help when his blood sugar would drop and Maiden would have an episode. A sudden change in mood, the dilating of the pupils, confusion, delirium, shaking hands. It was enough to keep the other kids away. They weren’t sure what was the cause of it was but the children stayed away, leaving Maiden to lead a lonely childhood filled with creative ideas and whimsical dreams.
It was a lonely existence until he met a young man that changed everything. Harlan Albus. Maiden could be charming, when people took the time to look past his seemingly random fits, and Harlan did just that. Finally, Maiden had found a friend who took him under his wing and introduced him to a new circle of friends. Their friendship continued through high school. They were a rambunctious group and often found their way into trouble, but Maiden was glad to have found individuals who were all a little mad in their own ways. Things only escalated once Harlan began dabbling in drugs. Soon, Maiden was the best friend and right hand man to The White Rabbit. Though never partaking in the substance himself, afraid of how it would react with his condition, Maiden Hatchell was surrounded by a group who all loved the affects of Wonderland. Still, they were friends and he was determined to keep an eye on them.
It was an interesting time for the young man. His fits would give him delusions of his own while his friends all took trips to Wonderland. It was the same thing time and time again until one day Harlan brought a fresh face into the mix. A curious little blonde named Alice. The two hit it off immediately. They were both quirky and she saw bits of genius in him that nobody ever had before. Suddenly, his madnessfelt right. Things had never been particularly easy for him, however, and even his friendship with her had a rough patch. As she grew more and more involved with Harlan and Wonderland, Maiden worked to push her away from the drug and his best friend. He wanted to protect her from the world she was entering. After Alice’s arrest, he kept away. This was her chance to start over with a life free of Wonderland.
There was an emptiness inside him when Alice left for Walt. When she’d been at his side, it had grounded him in a way. His thoughts were still whimsical and off the wall, but Maiden was more conscious of his condition which led to fewer spells of shaking and combative behavior. With her gone, the clarity seemed to disappear as well and the young man grew more and more dark. During one of his fits, Maiden was walking down the street with pupils dilated and spouting words that only a madman could. An officer approached, concerned for not only the well-being of Maiden but of the surrounding citizens. In a daze, Hatchell lashed out, striking the policeman. He threw several punches before he was restrained. Knowing that it was jail, or an Academy in the States that seemed to have the ability to turn even the most rebellious of children into functioning members of society, Maiden was sent off to Walt.

a l i c e l i d d e l l ➳ Alice. A curious little blonde who quickly became the stability Maiden needed in life without even knowing it. He was fiercely protective over her, desperate to keep her out of whatever plans Harlan had because he knew how disposable sellers were to the drug lord. Letting her be shipped away was one of the most difficult things he’d had to do, but Maiden knew that without Wonderland, Alice could achieve the impossible and this might be the only way to break the spell.
h a r l a n a l b u s ➳ The first one to ever look past Hatchell’s madness and form a genuine friendship with the shaking boy. They remained close throughout the years, though lately Maiden can’t help but wonder if his place is still at Harlan’s side.
