Character Bio

Max Sweeney photo
Occupation: Computer programmer

Family: The family, estranged from nearly entirely, resides in Wilmette, Illinoise. Moira's sister Maggie called to tell her that their mother died and suggests that Moira not attend the services. Other than Maggie, nobody else knows about Moira's transition until Max comes home for his mother's funeral, at which point, the entire situation explodes and causes an even bigger rift.

Personality Type: Normally quiet, introverted, shy, and a bit socially inept. When Max begins to transition and starts using testosterone, his personality changes drastically and he has very emotional and often violent outbursts, which Jenny gets the brunt of. This is because he was using testosterone at an incredibly high dose without knowing that.

L Word(s) That Best Describes Moira/Max: lovely, luscious, learned, legitimate, lion-hearted, loving, loyal, lonely, low, liberal, languid, listless

Signature look: Very boyish, broad-shouldered. As Moira, considered butch. As Max, manly, but with metrosexual style. Generally dressed in jeans and a tight t-shirt, casual business attire at work.

Endearing Trait(s): Absolutely striking eyes, strong, cares for others,honest, hard working.

Annoying Trait(s): Can be overly judgemental and aggressive at times. Constantly evolving identity which can be shocking or abrasive at times.

Strengths: Very hardworking and good at what he does. Pulls through most crises without a hitch. Very insightful about human relationships. Loyal and brave, standing up for what he believes in even at his own personal expense.

Hangups: Being perceived as different. Compared to all his friends, strives to 'pass within the heterosexual paradigm' and initially criticizes others who don't accept his choice in how to identify. Worries about making people uncomfortable. Being Judged.
