Saber has been singing in front of audiences since she was 3. In addition to singing with the Maidens, she also sings with and manages another pirate band called Scales and Crosstones, established in 2007. They have released four albums, three of which can be found on their Bandcamp.

Saber's childhood through adult years were spent in a very conservative environment, which pushed her to strike out and try new and exciting things. While employed at Piratz Tavern in Silver Spring as “day wench" from 2009 to 2013, she formulated the idea for an all girls singing group, and eventually found the other members of the Misbehavin' Maidens. She now works at a “General Variety Store” in the local area, studying and providing adult sex education, as well as teaching classes through the store and at community events and conventions. Her long term goals are to continue to teach Adult and Pleasure Education, and would someday like to own a shop, or run a dungeon of her own.

Rouge is a casual singer, who participated in school choirs and sang along to the radio as she was growing up. She has never received any formal vocal training, but is quite enthusiastic about it anyway. She fell in with piracy when she became one of the bartenders at Piratz Tavern back in 2010, where she met the ne’er-do-wells who would later go on to become the Maidens. Rouge has enjoyed learning on her feet with the Maidens in her first chance to perform with a group.
