Sean Mayfair’s family began as an Irish-Scottish American mix in the Maspeth area of Queens, New York. Sean was switched with a sickly human child when he was quite small. It wasn’t too long afterward that his human mother fell ill and died. Sean’s older brother had to take care of him while their father earned a living in a canning factory. Sean wondered why, even before he could speak or walk, they no longer saw mother after she went to sleep that last time. He could see and hear her like she had never left and was healthy. He kept telling his father and brother about seeing his mother. But they thought he was imagining things. It wasn’t until many years later that he began seeing more spirits. At twelve years old, he was making deliveries for a bakery when he saw and spoke with a young man who had died nearby. The young man asked Sean for help, amazed that he saw him. Sean visited the spirit’s parents, telling them about their son and passing on what the young man was saying. There he began to realize he saw and could communicate with spirits of people who have died.
Began doing medium work when he was sixteen years old. For five years he helped people speak to loved ones who had crossed over. There good times and bad - Sean had emotional times where he let himself feel too much. Also, he realized that he felt attracted to men rather than women. Sean did not pursue anyone, fearing even more judgement, violence towards who he was. During that time, he began to look around and ask about people who could do amazing things. He soon found someone who was willing to talk to him and also confided in being about to do other things like make a small broom closet bigger or a suitcase contain much more that it looked like it could. Sean was amazed and asked to be mentored in that ability. Thankfully the man agreed and helped Sean learn how to manipulate space.
Word got around about Sean’s ability to communicate with spirits and soon he was approached and recruited to join the Zion Carnival. Agreeing he went and worked hard - helping others with setting up, tearing down, but gathered and kept his own alone time to focus and meditate before his readings. It has been fifteen years since he joined Zion and he feels at home. He does his readings in his tent, while he lodges in his own wagon.
At a Glance - Sean is quite muscular in his upper body and arms. - He does suffer from insomnia from time to time when he has done very emotional readings. - His wings show during many of his readings as smoky shadow silhouettes when he taps into the magic of the leyline.
