Personality: Maximus, being the eldest of three children, is often the more serious one of the brood. He tries dutifully to lead by example, which led him into knighthood. His sense of humor is generally more dry and witty than his more down-to-earth brother. He often holds his emotions close to his chest, preferring to utilize logic over anything. He's incredibly well studied and used his knowledge to further his strategic usefulness on the battlefield.

Having grown a bit battle-weary, Maximus is far quieter than he used to be. His psyche is damaged, but he hopes that in time he can become whole again. He is searching for answers in an uncertain world that is trying in itself. 

History: The Raine family hails originally from Southern Ireland, namely the province of Munster, and is directly related to the line of the current King of Munster, Brian Boru. As the family line grew, the Raine's spread to Scotland, Wales, and Britannia. Mannix Raine and his bride Cait Connogh left the isle for Britannia in 960. Partially to keep tabs on the Viking raids there, but also to look for a better and less war-torn life. Four years later, Cait gave birth to their first child while visiting family in Eire, a son they would name Maximus, after a dearly departed friend of Mannix. Two years following, they were graced with another son, Merrick, named after Cait's father.

After the birth of his sibling, Maximus took the role of "big brother" quite seriously. He did his best to teach his younger brother right from wrong, which didn't always go as planned. While the younger Raine would prefer to go tramping about in the hills by their estate, Maximus would clearly rather devote time to his studies.

When he was fifteen, his little sister was born. A baby of both surprise and miracle, he found himself once again taking the mantle of big brother. Between him and Merrick when they weren’t training as a page and squire, they helped care for the babe which gave their mother a little bit of a break from time to time. Moira became the apple of everyone’s eye and the first thing Maximus taught her was how to read and write, and second how to defend herself.

Unlike some with scholarly focus, Maximus chose to put a practical use to it and when of the appropriate age traveled back to Ireland to finish training as a knight. His book smarts and theories served him well in this capacity, as he was able to formulate efficient strategies for the reigning King of Munster. One particular battle would change him, however. During a battle to retake Dublin from Vikings, Maximus lost a close friend and fellow knight. He was also left with physical battle wounds as a reminder of his losses.

Once Maximus returned home, he was much quieter than he had been as a boy. He often would sit alone pouring over different texts or simply staring out of the rain-covered windows. Not enjoying the turmoil he saw his brother going through, Merrick suggested that Maximus accompany him to teach at Hogwarts. 

Though the idea of a school of magic intrigued him, he brushed off the idea thinking that they couldn’t possibly be in wanting an instructor who was messed up in the head. Besides, he had his own studies to carry out and was trying very hard to talk their stubborn father into sending Moira, their baby sister, up to the school for more formal training where she might be safer away from the brutality of war and strife. Things like that took time and dedication and that was something Maximus gave in all things.
