s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments CLARISSE


Name: Clarisse Amber Straut
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: May 4
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Rowan
» Core: Chimera Scale Fragment and Dragon Heartstring
» Length: 13 1/2 Inches
» Flexibility: Quite Rigid
» Description: Both Clarisse's parents and the wand shop owner, the current Ollivander, were surprised by the wand that chose the girl. It was odd how, after trying five or so wands, Clarisse pointed to a box, requesting to try the enclosed wand. Thinking it a random selection, Ollivander entertained the girl's whim, expecting little from the effort. Much to his surprise, the wand emitted a golden beam of light, bringing an enormous smile to the little girl's face. The wandmaker told the young girl, as her parents paid for the wand, that this wand contained a very rare core, a fragment of a Chimera scale, gained many years ago when a Greek wizard brought in the very wand Clarisse now held, a family heirloom that the wizard had grown frustrated of trying to work with. Ollivander continued his story, explaining that he had been surprised to be offered the wand, but willingly traded it for another with the individual. The wandmaker warned Clarisse that she would need to respect its power, in order to reap the full potential offered before seeing her and her parents out the door. The wand is on the long side, which makes sense for Clarisse, given her dramatic mannerism. The handle is intricately carved, while the wood above is smooth, narrowing slowly until the top inch, where the wood swiftly tapers to a slender tip. At the top of the handle, the wood has been contoured to a spheric shape, proceeded by some bulbous material that is just a little too big for Clarisse's current finger size, the base of the wand ended in another spherical shape and then some convex rings and finally a rounded end. The wood is not analogously colored, instead having a darker grain appearing in vertical ellipses. The main color of the wood is a warm shade of medium-brown, but the irregular ellipses are darker in color, like that of a ninety-percent cacao chocolate. Attracted to Clarisse for her cleverness and pure heart, it is a powerful wand worthy of respect. Rowan is prized for its protective nature, a quality which, in this wand, makes it less willing to change owners, despite dragon heartstring making up part of the core. It is further a trait of Rowan to be able to cause defensive charms and spells cast to be particularly strong, aided by the strength of the wand's cores. Despite a reputation for virtue, rowan makes for especially potent dueling wands. The chimera scale fragment adds (besides raw power) stability to the wand—dragon heartstring tends to be a more volatile core. The wand isn't particularly stubborn, and learns fairly quickly. That being said, it is not for subtle magic—not that Clarisse minds—and it can be a tad bit temperamental, and often difficult to control.
Appearance:
Description: Clarisse is the drama queen of the family. Horribly stubborn, once she's made her mind one way or another, she is unlikely—an understatement—to change her opinion. The friends she makes will be friends for life, a quality that speaks more to Hufflepuff than Gryffindor. The Hat did indeed consider putting her in the House of the Badger, but Clarisse's sheer nerve and the strength of her courage won out in the end. She is a small girl, especially for her age, standing only at four feet and six inches. Golden-brown hair extends past her waist, almost long enough for her to sit on. She is fair-skinned, with a peach complexion that tends to burn more easily than tan. The addition of pale green eyes leaves a small, adorable child. However, her sweet, innocent appearance is misleading. Clarisse is full of fire and has a dramatic flair that leaves her a capricious, quick-tempered little girl. She is much too clever for her own good, resulting in an overabundance of precociousness. Still, she has a good sense of humor and a selectively thick skin. She loves being the center of attention and making people laugh. She is witty and developing an unfortunately sarcastic side. Much to the dismay of her parents and siblings, the sweet little girl they knew is turning into a hot-head eager for adventure. Before she left for the year, her parents pulled her siblings aside, warning them to keep an eye out on the little girl.
Background: Henry and Margaret met at the Ministry of Magic, in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. Despite a six year age difference, the two fell in love and, before too long, ended up with four children: Kassidy, the twins Patrick and Thomas, and Clarisse. Being the youngest by four years, and her closest siblings being twins, Clarisse has never been exceedingly attached to any of her siblings. Of all her siblings, she is closest to Patrick, but probably even more so, his cat. Courage likewise adores Clarisse. Patrick frequently jokes that the cat likes her more than him! The wait for her Hogwarts letter was the longest thing of her life. When she was seven, Kassidy left for Hogwarts, and the twins followed her two years later. Clarisse was half-convinced that they wait would kill her, and for most of her tenth year, she suffered a reoccurring nightmare where she turned out to be a Squib. She would easily say that the day she got her letter was the best day of her entire life. While not a hatstall, the Sorting Hat did spend a full three minutes trying to sort out the small girl.
Relations:
» Henry Cravitt Straut - Father; 47; Pure-Blood; Ministry of Magic Employee; Former Slytherin
» Margaret Jones Straut - Mother; 41; Half-Blood; Ministry of Magic Employee; Former Ravenclaw
» Kassidy Silvia Straut - Sister; 17; Half-Blood; Ravenclaw; Quidditch Captain and Chaser; Prefect
» Jackson Patrick Straut - Brother; 15; Half-Blood; Hufflepuff; Keeper
» Thomas Oliver Straut - Brother; 15; Half-Blood; Slytherin
Pet: Owl
» Name: Puffin
» Gender: Male
» Age: 2
» Appearance:
» Description: Clarisse named her owl "Puffin" after the species, due to his coloring and very orange beak. Thomas, who was thirteen at the time, told her bluntly that she couldn't name her owl after another type of bird, particularly one who couldn't fly. Clarisse, in return, looked disdainfully down her nose at her brother, and declared her "Puffin." Puffin is small, with black eyes, and funny-looking circular face. Despite his odd appearance, Clarisse is smitten with the bird, and wouldn't have him any other way. She dotes on the creature, who as sweet as can be. Clarisse is definitely favorite person, but he is quite fond of Patrick, and of many of his person's friends.
Other: Clarisse is exceedingly dismayed that she won't be able to tryout for the Quidditch team this year, as she is a first year. She claims that "Quidditch is in her blood," much to the amusement of her siblings, Kassidy in particular. Clarisse will love Hogwarts, more she could ever have imagined. She will make tons of friends and swear that she's learned so much, "her head might explode," at which her parents will just laugh. She will only ever go home for breaks if her parents insist on such, and then she will make a point of pining away while awaiting her return.

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) JASON


Name: Jason Fergus St. John
Gender: Male
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: November 22
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Holly
» Core: Ghoul Slime
» Length: 10 1/2 Inches
» Flexibility: Swishy
» Description: Jason's holly wand has been sanded down to an almost pearlescent shade of white, having an appearance of bone upon far inspection. It has a large round knob at the end and carved in rings an inch apart until the handle ends. The wand demands almost as much attention as Jason does, often refusing to work for him unless he has polished it a minimum of once per day. Should Jason even insinuate that he likes another student's wand, his own will simply "shut down" indefinitely (it's been known to stop performing up to one week!) which has caused the young boy to fail an exam or two at Hogwarts. The ghoul slime core has been Jason's nemesis as well as saving grace on more than one occasion because while it has stubbornly refused to act during class, it never refuses to help out in acts of showmanship when surrounded by an audience.
Appearance:
Description: With large bright blue eyes and dark brown hair, it isn't hard to guess that Jason is a St. John as the physical resemblances between him and his older brothers are quite easy to pick out. He isn't as pretty as Nathan or Samuel, but Jason is still on the cusp of puberty (his voice has begun to crack this year) and so there's still a chance he'll end up as pretty as his brothers. He stands at five feet eight and weighs one hundred and forty pounds, having grown four inches this year alone. Jason is an attention whore who is still unable to tell the difference between good and bad attention--as long as it's attention, it makes no difference, right? He is a very bright child but has a hard time applying himself or sticking to one activity for too long--but when forced to by his professors or his older brother, Nathan, Jason always manages to prove just how much he has retained as well as how capable he is of learning.
Background: Although his parents still live in the same house, they have long since grown apart, staying together only for "the sake of the children" or as Nathan believes, to keep up appearances among their social peers. This choice to remain under the same roof has put a strain on the emotional state of all the St. Johns, possibly having affected Jason the most. The only one in the house who ever pays attention to him is Nathan, Samuel having moved out from home long ago. Jason is surprisingly immature, even for his age, and although he is financially spoiled, he feels unloved by his family, his mother having no time for him and his father always locked away in his study or at the office.
Relations:
» Alaric St. John - Father; 50; Ministry of Magic Worker; Former Ravenclaw
» Elizabeth St. John (née Watson) - Mother; 50; Former Slytherin
» Samuel St. John - Brother; 17; Gringotts Wizarding Bank Intern; Former Slytherin
» Nathan Gabriel St. John - Brother; 14; Slytherin
Pet: Cat
» Name: Pablo
» Gender: Male
» Age: 1
» Appearance:
» Description: Pablo, with his bushy black fur and round pale blue eyes, is possibly the world's best cat. His only flaw? He sometimes does not realize he is a cat. Growing up in a house with a large Snowy Owl as his only animal companion, rivalry, and as a possible meal, as a young kitten, Pablo learned to defend himself by trying to outsmart the owl. He would mimic the owl's movements and habits and even took to hooting every once in awhile (except that the sound still comes out in a weird, cat-like meow). Sometimes Pablo climbs trees and perches on them, remaining as immovable as an owl for hours. Pablo's mimicry has successfully managed to completely confuse Icarus and to this day, Icarus is uncertain what would happen should he ever swoop down on Pablo to try and eat the furball. Nathan and Jason have wasted countless of hours watching their pets while rolling on the ground with uncontrollable laughter. Jason has uploaded many a video onto YouTube showcasing these two animals in a series titled Leave Me Alone: Today I'm an Owl.
Other: Jason has an uncanny ability pick up choreography, especially in break dancing or popping of any kind. He can watch a routine once or twice and then copy it from memory. He's not bad either! He has fantastic hand-eye coordination which makes him great at videogames, much to his parents' chagrin.

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 28 comments MIO


Name: Mio Sasaki
Gender: Female
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: April 18
House: Ravenclaw
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Cherry
» Core: Diricawl Feather and Kneazle Whisker
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Pliable
» Description: Mio visited the wand shop in her hometown in Japan. Her parents insisted that she get a wand from home because it would better suit her. Mio visited the shop with her parents, excited that they were so involved in something for once. Inside the store they spent hours looking at every single wand, none a good fit. Some were too playful, some were too strict, none were what Mio wanted. At this point, she was discouraged and about ready to give up and come back another day when her mother asked to look at a wand in the very back corner of the store. The box was dusty, but the wand inside was beautiful. This wand was a light color and seemed somewhat average compared to the other wands that Mio had tried, but when she held it in her hand she knew that this was the one. Cherry wood was prized at Mahoutokoro, the school that most of the wizards in Japan attended. Mio must've tried dozens of other cherry wands, but the others weren't the perfect fit like this one. Soon after she was informed that the core was of Diricawl feather and Kneazle whisker, both of which meant little to her at the time. Both of these elements promote Mio's subtleness and honesty.
Appearance:
Description: Mio has dark brown hair that shines a coppery red in the sunlight. Its somewhat thick and is a little bit longer than shoulder length. She is relatively short and has a long torso. She is thin and lacks muscle in her arms, but she some muscle in her legs. Her face is in a circular oval shape and she has round cheeks that are naturally rosy. The rest of her skin is fair. Her eyes are almond shaped and brown and are framed by long lashes. Mio is proper and honest, being raised in a wealthy family. She spends a lot of her time studying or reading, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't have friends. She will be nice to anyone and everyone, but she won't mean it half of the time. She does things out of her sense of duty. She is very intelligent and will often think that she is better than others, but she would never actually express it. Her manner of speaking is that of someone who prides themselves in their words and she does have a slight accent from living in Japan.
Background: Mio was born as the second and last child of a wealthy family in Japan. She grew up studying and getting whatever she wanted. She has played the piano and violin for many years and also enjoys riding horses. Her parents have high hopes for her after how successful her older sister was and still is and have agreed to send her to Hogwarts in order for her to be more cultured.
Relations:
» Mitsuo Sasaki - Father; 47; Pure-Blood
» Haruko Sasaki - Mother; 41; Pure-Blood
» Akira Sasaki - Sister; 15; Pure-Blood; Best Student in Mahoutokoro
Pet: Cat
» Name: Ramen
» Gender: Male
» Age: 1
» Appearance:
» Description: Ramen is a one year old Scottish Fold who is mostly orange except for the lighter tan on his stomach and around his nose. He is kind of fat and heavy, but can still be picked up and carried around. Ramen will often sit up on his back legs and doesn't really trust people. He's always game for attacking a laser pointer and will snub you if you don't have food.
Other: Mio is skilled at learning languages and adapting quickly to change. She loves eating sweets and enjoys shopping with her near unlimited bank account, courtesy of her parents.


s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments JINX


Name: Jinx Helicia August
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: December 13
House: Hufflepuff
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Dogwood
» Core: Unicorn Hair and Pixie Egg
» Length: 10 Inches
» Flexibility: Reasonably Springy
» Description: Jinx's wand was the second the wand maker handed her to try. He hit it right on the mark, for she and the wand bonded instantly, demonstrated by the wand sending the wand maker's loose papers lying on the counter by them flying through the air as if by a gust of wind. Jinx laughed and the wand maker simply commented that she and the wand would likely have great adventures together. The appearance of the wand is deceptively simple; it is thicker towards the base, growing narrower to just larger than the circumference at the top, polished smooth, and stained a deep, rich brown. It is playful with a mischievous nature, much like Jinx. While it needs fun and excitement, it is perfectly capable of serious magic, and is much more reliable than one would expect; likely due to the incorporation of unicorn hair in the core. The pixie egg causes the wand to have slight Light leanings, helped along by the unicorn hair; meaning Jinx would have a hard time practicing the Dark Arts if she ever felt inclined to do so. Pixie egg also boosts the wand's ability with Charms and also enables it to cast Peskipiksi Pesternomi, but also indicates that Jinx may be skilled in Care of Magical Creatures. Unfortunately, it is a wand that will never be 'quiet', not that Jinx minds, and is incapable of performing non-verbal spells, though it is a faithful wand, if rather needy.
Appearance:
Description: Like her twin brother Ayden, Jinx is small, but brimming with energy. Bright green eyes sparkle with mischief from underneath a mess of bright, copper-blonde curls. As she's gotten older, both her and brother's hair has become closer to a strawberry-blonde color. With her freckled, fair cheeks and devious smile, she bears a certain resemblance to a pixie not aided by fine eyebrows, a pointed and dimpled chin, and slightly upturned nose. Her face seems to alight with a certain vivacity when she smiles, which is a frequently-occurring event. Her voice is small and medium-high in its pitch. She tends to explode with an abundance of unintelligible syllables when she talks, which can be attributed to a creative mind overflowing with thoughts and ideas, and must be frequently reminded to speak slower. Jinx is a very fierce, spit-fire kind of individual. While she may have quite the temper, she is not one to hold grudges, and she is often surprised to find someone angry for some past grievance. She and Ayden have the unique ability of being able to make Evander smile when he is in one of his moods. Jinx tends to get intensely focused on a few things, which fortunately balances out Ayden's severely limited attention span and susceptibility for distraction. Like Ayden, she is very physical, though she does tend to do slightly better in school. Ultimately, she is a truly sweet girl who likes making people smile and hates to see people hurt.
Background: Throughout their lives, Jinx and Ayden have been inseparable. When Jinx was four, there was a particular incident where her mother tried to her to go grocery shopping while her father was trying to take Ayden with him to a hardware store. In the driveway, as her parents started moving her and Ayden towards separate cars, a bolt of electricity literally burst from the twins, resulting in a trip to St. Mungo's for their parents. The incident left no doubt that the twins were imbued with magical talent and despite being told that it was unlikely to happen again, their parents have never again tried to separate Jinx and Ayden. Though she was young, Jinx has a surprisingly accurate recollection of the incident, though she could recite it from memory due to the number of times she has heard the tale recounted at family gatherings. Jinx and Ayden have always been the troublemakers of their family, and Evander is frequently the subject of their tricks. Hogwarts presents a whole new world full of opportunity for trouble, which Jinx and her brother cannot wait to exploit.
Relations:
» Henry Jaredson August - Father; 47; Half-Blood; Former Hufflepuff
» Mabel Marianne August - Mother; 44; Half-Blood; Former Hufflepuff
» Evander Nikhil August - Brother; 13; Ravenclaw
» Ayden Bernard August - Twin Brother; 11; Hufflepuff
Pet: Owl
» Name: Kerra
» Gender: Female
» Age: 1
» Description: Kerra is a small little owl, light brown in color, with white and a few reddish feathers tossed into the mix. She has a golden beak and golden-brown eyes. She is quite fluffy and is only about half as big as she looks. She is very sweet, with a soft hoot and a weakness for being scratched on the back of the neck just so. She is shared by Jinx and Ayden.
Other: While some of Jinx and Ayden's tricks do occasionally have a more malicious nature, the majority of their pranks are quite harmless, meant all in good fun. Throughout the years, they have developed a sort of sign language to aid the execution of their tricks. Like Ayden, Jinx has expressed a great deal of interest in playing Quidditch. While neither she nor Ayden have said anything, they are both terrified at the prospect of being sorted into different Houses. She has an astounding capacity to remember things, an ability that seems to only be getting stronger as she ages. Though no Legilimens, she often seems to know exactly what Ayden is thinking; they know each other so well they rarely need to speak to understand one another. The Hat will find that she could also be a suitable fit in Gryffindor.


๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) AYDEN


Name: Ayden Bernard August
Gender: Male
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: December 13
House: Hufflepuff
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Larch
» Core: Dragon Heartstring
» Length: 10 Inches
» Flexibility: Swishy
» Description: This is the twelfth wand tried by Ayden in Diagon Alley; it produced a fountain of red sparks when he waved it. It is a plain, simple wand, a rich golden-brown color with red undertones. Larch wands have a reputation for instilling courage and confidence in their users, but Ayden has yet to witness any proof of that. It is a wand of hidden talents and unexpected effects, much like Ayden himself, who has yet to realize his full potential. It is a powerful wand, having a dragon heartstring core, but also somewhat temperamental and prone to accidents.
Appearance:
Description: Like his twin sister Jinx, Ayden is small, but brimming with energy. Eyes of vivid blue sparkle with mischief from underneath a mess of bright, copper-blonde curls. As he's gotten older, both him and his sister's hair has become closer to a strawberry-blonde color. With his freckled, fair cheeks and devious smile, he has a certain resemblance to an elf not aided by a pointed, dimpled chin and slightly upturned nose. Like his sister, his voice is small and medium-high in its pitch, but he tends to be easier to understand than his sister when it comes to speaking, as he does not try to get out everything he has to say in five seconds or less. Ayden is a very fiercely competitive jokester. Due to his age, he doesn't tend to think through things all the way, and some of his tricks do end up having negative consequences. Nonetheless, he is quick to apologize—if just for formality's sake—and move on to his next great prank. He is very empathetic, and hates seeing people sad. He and Jinx have the unique ability of being able to make Evander smile when he is in one of his moods. Ayden has a severely limited attention span and is very easily distracted. Fortunately, this usually balances out Jinx's intense focus. Ayden has a voracious appetite, and always seems to have food on his mind. He is very enthusiastic and outgoing, and has a hard time settling down and taking things seriously. When bad things happen, he tends to go through a long period of denial before he accepts the finality of the event. School has never been so much his thing as he is more of a physical, people-oriented person.
Background: Throughout their lives, Ayden and Jinx have been inseparable. When Ayden was four, there was a particular incident where his father tried to take him to a hardware store while his mother was trying to take Jinx to go grocery shopping. In the driveway, as his parents started moving him and Jinx towards separate cars, a bolt of electricity literally burst from the twins, resulting in a trip to St. Mungo's for their parents. The incident left no doubt that the twins were imbued with magical talent and despite being told that it was unlikely to happen again, their parents have never again tried to separate Ayden and Jinx.

Ayden would love to play Quidditch during his time at Hogwarts. While neither he nor Jinx have said anything, they are both terrified at the prospect of being sorted into different houses. He will be relieved to discover that the Hufflepuff dormitory is by the kitchen.

s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments PETER


Name: Peter James Phillips
Gender: Male
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: September 14
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Rowan
» Core: Graphorn Skin
» Length: 11 3/4 Inches
» Flexibility: Reasonably Springy
» Description: Peter's wand is a nutty brown color, sanded and polished to an almost glass-like smooth, reflective surface. A spherical bulb marks the beginning of the handle, and a similar one adorns the base. It was the fourth wand the boy tried at Ollivander's in Diagon Alley; it shot out yellow sparks when he gave it a swish, they've been together ever since. Like Peter, this wand is very protective. It has no attraction to the Dark Arts, but makes for a fine dueling wand. It has very powerful defensive abilities; the rowan enhances the strength of all defensive charms and the Graphorn skin is able to deflect most all offensive spells. It is only natural that such a wand be paired with Peter, who has displayed strong protective instincts around his sister, but it chose Peter also in part for his clear head and pure heart. Both the wand and Peter are fairly adaptable, and as a general rule, will pick up new spells with ease.
Appearance:
Description: Peter is about average height at four and a half feet tall. While on the slender side, he's not exactly skinny, and he certainly eats his fair share. Upon first introduction, he might seem a bit serious, but once he settles in to his surroundings he is a little ball of sunshine with a bright smile and free laugh. He makes friends easily, and considers them close to family. He will stay true to his friends, many times even after they have done something to betray his trust. He is quick to forget and forgive. Peter has blond hair that turns almost white in the sun. Due to the amount of time he spends outside (like many children his age, he loves to run around playing all sorts of games and exploring), the top layer of his hair is very light, the bottom layer being more of an ash blond. His hair is quite soft, but he hates people touching it, especially if they do so with the aim of messing it up. He's particular about a few weird things, for example, his hair. He has very pale skin with cool undertones, unlike that of his sister and parents. While the stereotypical blond-haired and fair-skinned person has eyes of some variation of blue, Peter has light hazel irises, which give him an interesting, if different look. Not that he minds. While he wouldn't openly admit it, he doesn't mind being the center of attention, nor people praising his looks. So what if he's a little vain? Caring about one's appearance rarely hurt anybody.
Background: Peter was adopted by the Phillips shortly after he was born to a single witch who lacked the means to support him. Unaware at the time of his birth-mother's... lineage, his parents were shocked upon finding out their children had magical abilities. His parents told him he was adopted a few years ago, when they thought he was mature enough to handle the truth, not wanting him to find out by some accident or through someone else. Peter took the news in stride and he and his parents told Maya a week or so later. Knowing he's adopted has not changed his relationship with his family. He loves his sister, and if anyone ever challenges him on the matter, he simply tells them that his parents chose him; what difference did it make if they were biologically related or not? Ever since a young age, Peter has been very protective of "his little sister", whether it was on the playground at recess or trying new things that could be in any way dangerous. He has yet to see the hypocriticalness of loving to take risks but insisting Maya always "be careful". He adores his sister with all his heart and considers her his best friend.

» Terrence Cameron Phillips - Father; 41; Muggle; Businessman
» Margaret Jane Phillips - Mother; 39; Muggle; School Teacher

Pet: Cat
» Name: Sarah
» Gender: Female
» Age: 2
» Appearance:
» Description: Sarah is a tabby cat with orange and brown coloring, besides the white that extends from her nose and mouth to her underbelly. She is young, and was picked out by Peter at an animal shelter shortly after he received his Hogwarts acceptance letter. She has beautiful big yellow eyes, and Peter thinks she is the most gorgeous creature in the world. While initially shy, Sarah is quick to warm up to people, particularly if they sit down at her level and offer a welcoming, open palm. A fussy eater, she will not pay much attention to any crumbs or food particles left on the floor. She sleeps next to Peter, preferring to curl up against the small of his back.
Other: Despite being a half-blood, Peter knows very little about the the magical world as his adopted family (he thinks of them primarily as his family) are muggles. He can't wait for the food at Hogwarts. The school representative that helped show him, Maya, and his parents around was telling them what they could look forward to, with particular attention to the food. As such, Peter is very excited to try pumpkin juice.

» Description: Maya's chestnut wand is a deep, rich, dark brown that is etched with amber lines (both yellow and green hues) that decorate the instrument in random designs. Ollivander told the young muggle girl that the vein-like lines appeared on the wood once it was fused with the mooncalf blood core, almost as though the very essence of the blood has completely melded into the wand in order to produce the magic that it is capable of in the wielder's hand. Two solid gold rings encircle the instrument that are a centimeter apart from each other, indicating where the handle ends. Maya is super excited about her wand; Peter told her that it chose her probably because of her love of animals. She can't wait to see what kinds of magical creatures will be at Hogwarts.
Appearance:
Description: Standing at four feet two, with a head of beautiful, waist length, light brown hair that is messily wavy and slightly rambunctious, Maya is just so wonderfully pretty and adorable in a careless yet angelic way. She has light brown eyes, rosy cheeks, dimpled hands and pale, smooth skin. She is very petite with that hint of baby fat that still hasn't fully disappeared, but one look at her will tell you that she'll be a stunner when she grows up. Maya is sweet and gentle, low maintenance and friendly, and she is equally as happy being alone, with friends or hanging out with her brother, Peter. She loves Peter the most, because he is her brother and best friend; she doesn't like to be away from him for long, extended periods of time and she would rather draw in the same room as him when he is in the house even if he is doing something else like reading, watching TV or playing videogames.
Background: To say that Maya was a surprise baby for the Phillips would be an understatement. The couple, high school sweethearts, tried for years to get pregnant and when they gave up hope, Maya was conceived, but only after their adoption application for Peter went through. The Phillips were thrilled; two babies and one pregnancy, one of each sex--what more could they ask for? Being so close in age, the Phillips kids did everything together and are consequently best friends. Maya will cry if Peter is hurt or upset and she won't tolerate it if other kids are mean to him (which doesn't happen often). She was so excited the day they both received letters to attend Hogwarts, because she simply can't bare the thought of being apart from him for entire school years.

Other: Maya is super nervous about being sorted into a different House than Peter, and she really hopes that won't happen.

Emma LORI


Name: Lorraine Rebecca Lazar
Gender: Female
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: January 5
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Pine
» Core: Glumbumble Honey and Hippogriff Feather
» Length: 14 Inches
» Flexibility: Stiff
» Description: Lori's wand is unusual in its blend of cores, but especially in combination with the wood. Pine wands are good for being used creatively, and have a tendency to pick wizards or witches destined to live long lives, and it is very sensitive to non-verbal magic. The core of Lori's wand is a blend of hippogriff feather and glumbumble honey. It is a strange blend, because of the glumbumble honey's tendency to enhance all areas of magic, but detract from whatever core it is paired with. However, the hippogriff feather does not enhance any specific area of magic, and in this case, even adds a balancing effect to the wand, demanding respect from Lori. Her wand is fairly long, at fourteen inches, but it fits her showy personality. This wand is the first that she has owned, purchasing it in Diagon Alley just before leaving for Hogwarts. She took a very long time choosing her wand, trying out up to thirty five wands before finding it. It is very pretty, the wood is a golden colour and it has two glass balls defining the handle that glow with white light whenever she uses magic.
Appearance:
Description: Lori is naturally tall like her brother, and they're both tall for their age, standing at four feet and eight inches tall. She has light brown hair that falls just past shoulder length and isn't exactly wavy, but it has a certain bounce to it. She has the same colour hair as her brother, a light brown colour with blond highlights. While she doesn't yet worry about her appearance, people tend to think that she will grow up to be very pretty. She isn't at all shy about anything, she will ask straight-up questions that are often considered rude without really noticing or caring. She is very smart, but in a way less mathematical and logical. She's more smart in the sense that she will easily understand people, and how they are feeling. She likes joking and playing the occasional prank, but doesn't enjoy it when other people are in serious emotional or physical pain, and will often try to help them, even if they don't want her to or even think worse of her because of it. She loves performing and is a dramatic person, a gifted actress, even at her young age. She's also a gifted singer, and her parents want her to go into the musical theater field of jobs when she's older. Lori does not make friends easily, but what she does have is a tight-knit family, and even though they are in different houses, she and her brother have remained astonishingly close.
Background: Lorraine is the oldest child in the family, born a minuscule two and a half minutes before her brother Julian; however she constantly reminds him of this fact, whenever she believes that something is unfair, or when setting up any kind of order, whether it be for turns at a game or who should get their dinner first. "I'm older," she would say, something that she expected to act as a free pass, a logical reason, and it sometimes worked. She grew up playing Quidditch and watching her parents use magic, and though she hasn't mastered Quidditch or even shown much interest in the sport, she does love to watch it it, and can't wait to start her classes at Hogwarts. Soon after Lori was eleven, both she and her brother received letters inviting them to Hogwarts, and of course they chose to go. They were sorted into different houses, Lori into Slytherin and Jude into Gryffindor, but they haven't grown apart any.
Relations:
» Blake Lazar - Father; 41; Author; Former Ravenclaw
» Lindsey Lazar - Mother; 40; Author; Former Ravenclaw
» Julian Fiyero Lazar - Twin Brother; 11; Gryffindor
Pet: Hedgehog
» Name: Nutella
» Gender: Male
» Age: 1/2
» Appearance:
» Description: Nutella was named by Lori's twin brother Jude, after the delicious hazelnut spread that Lori loves. Lori loves the name, however. She got him at about the same time that Jude got his kitten, just before leaving for Hogwarts, and they ended up naming each others' pets. Nutella is a certain species of hedgehog that will not get bigger, and will be able to fit in Lori's hand his whole life.
Other: Lori's favourite colour is purple and she hates having anything around her neck. You'll never see her wear a scarf, high-necked shirt or even a necklace.

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 28 comments CAMILLA


Name: Camilla Marise Aeglacea
Gender: Female
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: November 29
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
Wand:
» Wood: Elm
» Core: Doxy Wing and Ghoul Slime
» Length: 12 Inches
» Flexibility: Stiff
» Description: Camilla's a snob. She wanted the best wand, just how people want fancy cars and designer handbags. After hours of practically torturing the poor Mr. Ollivander with her high demands and near impossible standards, Camilla tried a wand that Mr. Ollivander pulled out from the highest shelf. It was a light stained elm wand that was smooth with an antique gold band that wrapped around it in a spiral. The handle was the same shade of gold and was shiny and well-polished. Her parents approved of the wand being elm because they prided themselves on their pure lineage. It was a powerful wand, and it instantly bonded with Camilla. The wand is a show-off, and creates grand, extravagant spells. It produces few accidents and foolish mistakes. A lot of the wand's power is superficial, seeing as it isn't made up of many powerful components, but it creates good-looking spells. They are a perfect match. Stubborn, dramatic, and a force to be reckoned with.
Appearance:
Description: Camilla is pale with green eyes. She has a prominent forehead and long, straight, dark brown hair that draws attention to her face. She is about average in height and is quite thin. Most of her height comes from her legs, but her proportions are fairly balanced. She speaks highly of herself and lowly of others. She has a thick English accent and annunciates her words very well, making them easy to follow and pleasing to listen to. She has excellent posture and a very graceful walk that is both quick and elegant. Camilla is proud and proper, demanding attention from everyone around her. She is commanding and has tough standards, but people are drawn to her because of her charming words. She is a snob and mean-spirited, but on occasion she'll do something nice for someone. Camilla is willing to do anything to get her way and lacks morality.
Background: Camilla grew up in a family who prided themselves upon their purity. She has a strong distaste for muggles or half-bloods and goes out of her way to make that known. She is the eldest in her family of eight and often takes on more responsibility than a girl her age should. She was constantly accused of practicing dark magic be her peers because of her unusual luck and ability to charm almost anyone into doing her bidding, but she has never practiced dark magic. She is always suspicious that her parents practice shady magic, though. She would never speak out against them, but she feels betrayed, in a way. Nonetheless, she ensures that none of her siblings would resort to such impure magic, even though she would in an instant if it would benefit her. Right now, though, it would just damage her reputation.

» Appearance:
» Description: Soir is watchful and loyal. She can often tell when something is wrong and will try to comfort Camilla. Soir was a gift from Camilla's parents so that she could write to them from Hogwarts. She is somewhat unusual in color, but is a very well-behaved owl. She's only about ten inches tall.
Other: Camilla is a stereotypical Slytherin who wants to be the best at everything.


s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments ANI


Name: Aniya Jo Boyle
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: February 12
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Red Oak
» Core: Demiguise Hair and Phoenix Feather
» Length: 10 3/8 Inches
» Flexibility: Unyielding
» Description: Ani's is a golden-red color, ten and three-eighths inches long, obtained at Ollivander's in Diagon Alley. It was the second wand she tried, and both took immediately to each other. The wand is slender and tapers evenly from end to end, the only embellishment being a small-leaved vine carved gently into the surface. The wand is considered a good dueling wand, as it is capable of very fast reactions, like their wielders. The phoenix feather in the core gives the wand great range of magic, though that aspect may take a while to be revealed. This particular wand will be hard to personalize, and even harder to win the allegiance of. It prefers independent owners who are quick-witted and adaptable, and is attracted to those who are light of touch with unusually fast reactions. The strength of this wand lies particularly in Transfiguration and the subtle arts. It may occasionally act on its own or show its own initiative. Both wielder and wand would be good to have on one's side in a fight.
Appearance:
Description: Ani takes strongly after her mother, both in image and mind. In addition to her mother's determination, she has her fiery red hair and rosy, olive-toned skin. Her grey-blue eyes, on the other hand, are entirely her father's. Like the rest of her siblings, she has strong eyebrows and freckles swept across her cheeks and nose. She has a light voice, mid-ranged and clear containing a certain clear spark, marked by a moderately thick Irish accent. Like the rest of her family, she is smart with a quick wit—their family arguments are hugely sharp and sarcastic—and very independent. She is very much her own person, displayed in one way by her Sorting. She is the only Slytherin of her immediate family. What placed her in Slytherin was her ambition, focus, adaptability, perfectionism, and realistic view of the world. She is a charming child who can be bold and even ruthless in times. While generally more tactful, she does sometimes find a blunt response to be necessary.
Background: Ani is closest to her mother, though she and her father's relationship is by no means rocky. She finds her oldest sister, Kiera to be unbearably obnoxious, and Oscar is just so... weird. On the other hand, she would easily call Maggie her best friend. The two have been close for many years, five of which Maggie has spent talking up Hogwarts. There was never any doubt in Ani's mind that she was a witch, but it was still nice to get her letter as confirmation. While a magical family, they live in a suburb of Dublin among a Muggle community. Up until this point, all of Ani's friends have been Muggles, so she's looking forward to making friends in the magical community.

» Kiera Cathleen Boyle - Sister; 17; Half-Blood; Hufflepuff
» Maggie Quinn Boyle - Sister; 16; Half-Blood; Ravenclaw
» Oscar Rory Boyle - Brother; 12; Half-Blood; Ravenclaw
Pet: Cat
» Name: Ginger
» Gender: Female
» Age: 1 1/2
» Appearance:
» Description: Ani did not name the tabby, though she does not miss the irony of her name. Ginger was adopted from an animal shelter near Ani's home a few days after she received her letter. Her mother told her that the Eeylops Owl Emporium was overrated unless you were looking for an owl, which Ani wasn't. She'd always wanted a cat, and when she met marbled eyes of Ginger, she knew exactly what pet she would be bringing to Hogwarts. That, and her mother's wry comment on how the cat's name made it fate. Ginger is sweet, if initially standoffish. Ani is decidedly her favorite, though she quite likes Maggie as well. She only eats soft food (besides just being picky, she has a sensitive mouth), and hates being left alone. One thing Ani cannot stand is Ginger's cry, and the girl has a suspicion that her intelligent cat both knows and uses that. Ginger is not very big, but the cat, mostly white and orange with dark brown markings, is pretty close to full grown.
Other: Ani wants to become the Minister of Magic someday.

ISA


Name: Isa Brice Valentine
Gender: Female
Blood: Muggle-Born
Age: 11
» Birthday: May 8
House: Hufflepuff
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Cedar
» Core: Dragon Heartstring
» Length: 13 Inches
» Flexibility: Quite Flexible
» Description: The day Isa went to get her wand she tried many wands before she found the perfect one. She got discouraged as she tried again and again until Mr. Ollivander handed her the pale wand with Celtic designs. Isa had decided by this point that she didn’t have any magic in her and when golden sparks flew she shocked herself and Mr. Ollivander. He told her that her cedar wand was thirteen inches and supple with a dragon heart string core. Isa's wand shows that she has strength of character and unusual loyalty. It also shows her good perception. Cedar carriers often seem less dangerous then they truly are, and are especially dangerous when one they love is hurt. The core usually matches with a powerful wizard though it can be temperamental. The flexibility of her wand shows that she is adaptable. All she knew then was that the thin, light colored, beautiful wand would always be one of her best friends.
Appearance:
Description: Isa always thought her bright hair stood out in a crowd a bit more than necessary, and this effect was furthered by her pale skin and freckly complexion. Her cheeks are rosy and her ears are a bit large giving her an appearance similar to that of a leprechaun. Her nose is small and her eyes are a piercing blue sitting below thin brows. She is short at three foot eleven inches and this furthers the illusion. Isa has a light, mezzo- soprano voice. She is as brave as a Gryffindor with unwavering loyalty to those she loves. She often puts others before herself which can lead to her being taken advantage of. If one tries to hurt someone she loves, she will defend them to her last breath. She is a magically powerful witch and is the top of her class. She tries hard in every subject and is naturally gifted in academics. Isa is witty and sarcastic but in a way that is funny to all and hurtful to none. She is helpful and a bit of a teachers pet. She is a bookworm and a nerd. Isa requires herself to work extra hard because of her disability. She also can be a bit impractical when it comes to doing things for others.
Background: Isa was born into a lower class family in southern England. She lived a fairly normal but destitute life with her parents until she was two and a half. At this time, both her parents died in a car crash that left Isa completely deaf. As she had no living relatives, she was placed in an orphanage but was soon adopted by an elderly woman who had raised a deaf child of her own. The woman, Mattie Frankfurt, taught her sign language, how to read lips, and how to talk a small bit. Isa had a fairly happy life despite her immediate sadness until she was ten years old. At this time, Mattie, who had become fairly ancient, passed away of a heart attack. Isa was sent into foster care as no one wished to adopt her. Foster care was especially difficult for her, both because of her disability and the strange things that seemed to happen around her. When she was eleven, the current Deputy Headmaster came to where she was staying and told her she was a witch, as custom with muggle-borns. She did her school shopping with a representative from Hogwarts, using a loan from the school. The day she got the reason behind her strange abilities was the best day of her life.

» Matilda Frankfurt - (Adoptive) Mother; 83 at Death; Muggle; Deceased
» Andrew Valentine - Father; 31 at Death; Muggle; Banker; Deceased
» Annabel Valentine - Mother; 28 at Death; Muggle; Teacher; Deceased
Pet: Cat
» Name: Blinx
» Gender: Male
» Age: 1 Month
» Appearance:
» Description: Blinx is a small cat even for a kitten. His head is large in comparison with his body and his bright eyes clearly stand out. He has a white under belly and paws, a half black half orange face, and a mottled body with one pink and one black ear. He is very happy and excitable and enjoys playing more than resting, at least at this point in his life. Isa named him such because when they first met Blinx just sat and blinked at her.
Other: Isa is a vegetarian as she thinks it is horrible to kill anything. She is hoping to make lots of friends at Hogwarts and to finally fit in.

s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments BRADLEY


Name: Bradford Xardel
Gender: Male
Blood: Muggle-Born
Age: 11
» Birthday: June 12
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Red Oak
» Core: Dragon Heartstring
» Length: 12 Inches
» Flexibility: Reasonably Springy
» Description: This particular wand was the sixth tried by Bradley. It is a handsome wand, solely on account of the dark, reddish brown of the wood, which is why it is undecorated. Between the wood and the dragon heartstring core, it is a plenty powerful wand. Given its unusually fast reactions, it comes to no surprise that it's a potent dueling wand. It will take Bradley some time to bond with his wand—he will have his fair share of accidents—but it will leave him a better wizard for it.
Appearance:
Description: Bradley has brown hair that's just darker than a medium brown, and warm hazel eyes. He never does much with his hair, only ever pushing it from his forehead and ruffling it if it starts to get too long. He is kind and jovial, a pretty popular, jock-sort of kid, even if he's slightly chubby. He's just so funny and goofy that he's never been made fun of for being a bit overweight. He has enormous hands and feet, which his parents promise means he'll be tall sometime. He sincerely hopes so, for he's pretty short right now, and he hates being shorter than most of the girls. Bradford, or Bradley is witty and loves a good pun. He delights in driving people crazy, he would brag that it is his specialty—he's not exactly modest. Change is something he craves; when things get too routine, he gets a little stir-crazy and usually ends up doing something rash that gets him in trouble. Though slow to anger, he has a ferocious temper worthy to be feared. He is very protective of his sister—he has been ever since they were little—it's one of the few things people take him seriously about. He considers his friends family, and will always have their back. He takes a lot of stupid risks—he's spent a few nights in the hospital—but has a grand time pulling his little crazy stunts.
Background: Bradley had a very normal, mundane life until one day in June seven years ago. It was on that day, his eleventh birthday, that his world was suddenly flipped on its head. Low and behold, he got a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, informing him that he was a wizard and was invited to attend the school for the coming school year. Understandably, he was thrilled, and his world will never been the same.

Pet: Cat
» Name: Jerry
» Gender: Male
» Age: 2
» Appearance:
» Description: Bradley named Jerry after the Loony Tunes "Tom and Jerry." Jerry, however, is much less uptight than his namesake. He is ginger and white and of medium size, as far as cats go, with amber-colored eyes. While he does like to sometimes chase other students' pets (especially the owls), he never actually harms any of the other animals found at Hogwarts. He is a silly thing, constantly crawling into small spaces and hiding under beds to pounce on unsuspecting, socked feet.
Other: Bradley has a very obvious thing for Kat, despite her constant rebukes of his 'affection'.

s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments CHRISTINE


Name: Christine Soleil Ivo
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: June 9
House: Ravenclaw
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Poplar
» Core: Unicorn Hair
» Length: 9 1/2 Inches
» Flexibility: Swishy
» Description: Christine's wand is ash brown in color—stained. (Unstained poplar is otherwise a light cream color.) Her wand is not round, but rather square-shaped, with rounded edges, tapering from base to tip, becoming more circular towards the top. It has no designated handle, just smooth wood extending nine and a half inches. The poplar grants consistency, strength, and uniform power. The unicorn hair also provides consistency, though it is not the most powerful of wand cores. The wand would be hard to turn to the Dark Arts and will remain very faithful to its original owner, Christine. Ollivander did warn her that the wand needed to be taken care of, as unicorn hair cores are quite sensitive, and can 'die' if they are mishandled. The wand was attracted to Christine for her clear moral vision and sense of consistency. They promise to make a good pair.
Appearance: (Right)
Description: Christine is a lovely little girl with dark brown hair, olive skin, and light brown eyes. She is four feet and four and a half inches tall, but certainly still growing. In fact, she shot up two and a half inches in just the past summer. Not that she minds, she would like to be quite tall, like her mother, if she could manage it. Christine is very predictable. She is a sweet girl, true to herself and to her friends. Very diplomatic and tactful, she has special talent in dealing with unpleasant people and settling arguments, spats, and disputes. Her mother would say she is more people oriented than Sherlock, but no less brilliant. And brilliant Christine is. She has always done well in school, for education has been very important to her parents and she is naturally gifted in her intellectual abilities. Physical activities are less her strength, she's done some dance growing up, but sports... Really not her thing. Her curiosity is insatiable. She wants to know everything there is about everything. Why this works, how this happens, what makes this what it is, why it's that color, how this all pieces together... It's a good thing her parents are both very intelligent, and patient enough to deal with all her questions and her projects taking things apart and putting them back together to see how they work. Fortunately magic doesn't work so well with electronics, so she's kept away from her dad's computer.
Background: As Christine's mother was from France (she actually attended Beauxbatons) and her father was half-French himself, Christine grew up bilingual, speaking both French and English from a young age. Christine's father, Lewis Ivo, grew up in a suburb of London. In grade school, he met a boy who would become his best friend for life—Edward O'Reilly. The two were forcibly separated when Edward's father moved the family to Ireland for business reasons. In college he met a beautiful French woman by the name of Margot Fontaine. The two were married not long after, and when they were twenty-nine and twenty-six respectively, Christine was born. Once done with college, her parents had bought a house in Lewis's old neighborhood, where Christine would spend the first eleven years of her life. Eight years ago, the Ivo's were contacted by Lewis's old friend Edward O'Reilly. Turns out, he was back in the area, and had moved in across the street from them of all things! To top things off, the O'Reilly's had a little girl only five days younger than Christine: Her name was Aislinn and the two became quite the dynamic duo, 'Sherlock and Watson' if you will, and it was rare to see one without the other—assuming you saw them at all, for they were always off adventure or another. Now, Christine had grown up knowing about the wizarding world—her mother was, after all, a witch—and so it came as no surprise when she got a letter of invitation from Hogwarts. While she was thrilled for the opportunity, it broke her heart that Aislinn wouldn't be joining her. On Aislinn's birthday, when the little redhead came over with her parents sporting letter with handwritten, green lettering, her parents convinced it was some sort of hoax. Imagine their surprise upon finding out both Christine and her mother Margot were witches! Upon finding out Aislinn would be joining her at Hogwarts, Christine tackled her friend and burst into tears.

Keller so far has been a very high-energy kitten willing to eat practically anything that he finds on the floor. Right now he has a bad habit of mouthing people's fingers, but Christine has been working to break the mostly-brown feline of the habit. Keller has yellow-green eyes and enjoys warm laps and all forms of positive attention.
Other: Christine loves calling Aislinn 'Watson' and acting as 'Sherlock' in their adventures. The idea of being a brilliant detective is very enchanting to her.

tori | 52 comments AISLINN


Name: Aislinn Ciara O'Reilly
Gender: Female
Blood: Muggle-Born
Age: 11
» Birthday: June 14
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Cypress
» Core: Hippogriff Feather and Unicorn Hair
» Length: 12 5/8 Inches
» Flexibility: Stiff
» Description: Aislinn got her wand with her best friend, Christine. The two had different qualities, so naturally, they had different wands. Mr. Ollivander had no trouble finding the perfect wand for this noble, and fierce young girl. He pulled the wand from one of the highest shelves in his shop, and, blowing off the dust, he placed the swirl-patterned, thin, orange-colored wand in her hands. A spark ignited from the tip, and that's when Aislinn knew. She had found her perfect wand. The wand does, however, have tendencies to backfire, but only because of Aislinn's attitude at some points.
Appearance: (Left)
Description: Aislinn is an Irish beauty with her fair ivory skin and long, wavy red locks. She resembles her mother greatly in this, but has her father's warm brown eyes and rather short stature. She is roughly four feet and five inches tall, and is slightly plump in her middle and in her cheeks. She has a naturally loud and confident voice that is around the mezzo-soprano range. Her skin, while it will burn, rarely freckles. Much like her fiery hair, Aislinn is fiery in personality as well. She is daring, confident, and is never one to stand down from a challenge. However, Aislinn also has a bit of a mouth on her, much to her determination and set view-points. She is rather impulsive, as well, and, like many eleven year olds, is very impulsive. She is not one to think things through, and often follows her instincts. Aislinn is also a kind, caring, and warm friend who is loyal to the end.
Background: Edward, Aislinn's father, was born in England, where he met his best friend for life in grade school, Lewis Ivo. They shared everything, from laughs, to frowns, to secrets, and, when Edward had to leave for Ireland; his father had gotten a great business opportunity that he just couldn't pass up. So, with heart-wrenching farewells, the best of friends had to split. But, while in Ireland, Edward found that his depression was not for nothing. He met his love there--a tall, pale, fiery red head named Kathleen. She was spunky, determined, and absolutely lovely. She was a bit older than him (two years), but neither party cared--love was ageless. Soon, though, they found themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. Kathleen was pregnant, and Edward hadn't even graduated yet--he was a mere four weeks away--and now he had a family to worry about. With some hard work, the two managed to find a decent apartment, and Edward was given a job at his father's computer company. It paid well, and it kept them off the streets. And then came the true task--his baby. It was in the middle of June when Aislinn came, all pale skin and fiery hair, much like her mother. As she grew, it became much more evident that she was like her mom. She was courageous, and daring, and very set in her ways. However, Aislinn did have her father's brown eyes, and his height--meaning she is rather short. When Aislinn was three, things took a turn for the worse. The company that Edward had been trying to keep alive took its last breath--the company was dead, and now Edward was out of a job. He spent weeks searching for a nice little place, and a job, and, mercifully, he found one in England. It took the O'Reilly's about six months to move, and after they were settled, the memories his Edward like a freight train. He was back in his old neighborhood. Of course the thought of Lewis came up, and he frantically searched the phone book until there he had it: Lewis Ivo's number. Talk about coincidence when the two discovered they were living across the street from each-other, and the surprise that Lewis was married with a baby girl, who happened to be Aislinn's age: Christine. Aislinn and Christine took like Sherlock and Watson, always doing things together and going on adventures--even if they were in the back yard. And then came a most shocking discovery. Aislinn received an odd letter in the mail, one written in green ink and unfamiliar hand. She broke the letter's red seal, and was shocked as she read. She. Was. A. WIZARD! The thought seemed unreal, until Christine came running from her house, a similar letter in hand. Edward and Kathleen headed over to Lewis's house, wondering what the heck was going on. Was this some kind of hoax? They were struck speechless, and Margot Ivo, Lewis's wife, had to explain everything, including the fact that she was a witch. It was a bit hard to wrap everyone's head around at first, but as September rolled around, it became official. Aislinn Ciara O'Reilly became a first year at Hogwarts that day, and she will never forget it.

tori | 52 comments MIRA


Name: Mirabelle Lynette Holmes
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: June 14
House: Ravenclaw
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Acacia
» Core: Augurey Tail Feather
» Length: 13 1/4 Inches
» Flexibility: Quite Rigid
» Description: Mira didn't have the best of luck when finding her perfect wand match, and it took her two visits to find it. Mira has a very misunderstood way about her, and this confused Mr. Ollivander, who had to do a bit of guess work when picking out wands for her to try. As the store was approaching closing hour, he had to send a wandless Mira and her mother home, which had a negative affect on Mira. She became perturbed; what if she never found a wand that suited her? Was she, of all things, a squib? Magic-less forever? The next twelve hours, or so, were utterly maddening for Mira. No one could get the restless girl to calm down. But, after entering the old and somewhat arenaceous shop, she felt better, for there Mr. Ollivander was with a wand in his hands. He grinned once he saw her, and carefully placed the long, dark tan wand in her palm. A spark of great magic exploded from the slightly tapered tip, causing the glass counter beside him to shatter. At this, Mr. Ollivander merely grinned and gave a little whoop of joy. Mira was elated--she was a wizard, and she had a real wand! Grinning from ear to ear, the young girl and her quiet mother left the shop, and out into Diagon Alley to finish up their errands for Mira's first year at Hogwarts.
Appearance:
Description: Mira is what some would call an "English Rose". She has long, golden blonde waves that fall past her pale and dainty shoulders, and chocolaty brown eyes. Her complexion is a pale rose, creams and pinks with just a few spots of freckles. She is a petite thing, weighing roughly seventy-five pounds and standing at four feet and nine inches. She has yet to reach her maturity, and thus has very small breasts, and a boyish figure to her. Mira has a smart voice laced with an English accent and ranging a tad lower than the soprano range. Now, moving onto personality, Mira is simply described as intelligent, yet snobby, which is only partially true. Mira is a kind young woman, but she is not out-right with her emotions and tends to be reserved, focusing intently on her studies. Many do not understand her quiet nature, and immediately label her as someone who is uppish, and snarky. However, Mira is quiet the opposite. She is a helpful girl who is honest and true, constantly seeking the answers to her questions. Mira is horribly curious, and observant as well, and can analyze a situation, surrounding, or person rather efficiently. But she is most always left with at least one question. Mira is also one who is easily excited by the small things, and is also crafty and artistic with a passion for drawing and painting. She also has a passion for literature, Muggle and Wizard, and her one of favorite books is Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
Background: Mira, like many great witches and wizards before her, is a half-blood, raised in a mix of both worlds. Her mother and father met two years before her birth, and the moment they met, they knew. They were helplessly in love, and Mira's mother, Mariette, refused to hide any of herself from her true love. She told Quinton what she was (months after they first met, mind you), and she assured him that this changed nothing--she still loved him with all her might. Quinton, if anything, felt on top of the world. Here he had a beautiful soul-mate, who was also one of the very things man dubbed "imaginary". He proposed on the spot, and like the crazy, in-love adult she was, Mariette said yes. They were married a year later, and spent the first year of their marriage traveling the world, but then it came to settling down time. They made a home for themselves in London, and soon found themselves ready to welcome another addition to the family. A baby girl was on the way. Nine months later, and Mirabelle Lynette Holmes was born, named after her deceased grandmothers. Quinton spoiled Mira with books, and was teaching her to draw once she was old enough to draw a line. Later, as Mira's artistic abilities grew, it was her teaching him. Mira was also a very bright and inquisitive child, easily amused by the smallest of magic her mother could create--it never failed to bring a grin to her face. And then the fateful day arrived. Mira had reached her eleventh birthday, and arrived the very thing her mother had been waiting for. Mira danced and sang as the letter flew through the door, and Mariette even let out a few tears of joy. Mira was beyond ecstatic as she read the letter, written in a green ink. She felt her whole-self coming together, and she knew, in that instant, that she belonged in a world of magic--she belonged at Hogwarts. The train ride was an interesting one--and atrociously long--but riding it, Mira learned some names, and discovered a few interesting facts about Hogwarts. Mira hopes her experience at the greatest wizarding school will be an eventful one.

Pet: Cat
» Name: Oddball
» Gender: Male
» Age: 1 3/4
» Appearance:
» Description: Oddball is a tall cat with a long torso and matching legs. He has peculiar eyes, which were the deciding factors for Mira--she has tendencies to want the things that are different, things that pose a mystery. Oddball was named, not only for his eyes, but for his un-catlike nature. He is a rather clumsy cat, and befriends the mice, owls, and other animals rather than terrorizing them. He is also an observant cat, but isn't very curious. He lets what may be, be--he doesn't care to investigate matters. Oddball is a major attention seeker, and will often rub up on legs and meow demandingly when he sees a person, or is in a particularly loving mood. Oddball is very loyal to Mira, and can get a bit stingy with her, meaning he may hiss at you if he does not want you around.
Other: Mira lives on tea, and drinks it practically twenty-four/seven. It doesn't matter the type--peppermint or green--she will guzzle it down. Quinton encouraged Mira to read Muggle Literature, making her a bit of a book-worm. He is also a Muggle Author, and is currently working on a documentary on the Brown Bear species. Mariette is only a day younger than her husband.


s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments BLAKE


Name: Blake Merle Wyn
Gender: Male
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: October 4
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Hawthorn
» Core: Cherub Hair and Unicorn Hair
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Inflexible
» Description: The wood of Blake's wand is spalted hawthorn, to be specific. It is not dyed (just painted with a clear lacquer) and as such is mainly a warm golden-brown color intermixed with with a spiraling white color and both darker and lighter "dots". It is a beautiful wand (at least in Ollivander's and Blake's opinions, Blake's parents were rather disappointed with its appearance), with a perfectly straight handle marked by a bronze band at the top and a similarly-styled cap at the bottom. From the top of the handle, it tapers to a tip slightly fatter than that of most wands (it is a little bigger around than most wands, Blake hopes it means that he'll grow up to be tall with big hands). The moment Blake walked to Ollivander's shop, the wandmaker knew exactly what type of wand he needed, and this was the second wand the eleven year old tried. It is a complex wand, as hawthorn wands tend to be, just like Blake. It is wonderfully faithful and would be difficult to turn to the Dark Arts, not that Blake appears to be leaning that way. It is very sensitive (it will often reflect Blake's emotional state), and romantically inclined (much to Blake's embarrassment). That being said, as sensitive as it is, it is prone to melancholy, which Ollivander was careful to warn the boy of. It is very at home with Blake, as hawthorn wands prefer complex and intriguing owners, reflecting their own nature. It will work best for Blake when he can understand and manage his feelings, but that will probably take a while, which should turn out all right, as the wand will prove difficult to master. The hawthorn and unicorn hair components nicely complement each other, as unicorn hair lends very consistent magic while hawthorn can backfire when a spell is badly handled. Similarly, unicorn hair is not the most powerful of cores, but hawthorn is proven to be more powerful than many other woods. It will particularly boost healing spells and charms (especially glamor charms, thanks to the cherub hair), but also divination (not a lot, but it certainly helps) and curses. Its complexity can be attributed mainly to the wand wood, which beautifully reflects Blake's innermost state of mind.
Appearance:
Description: Blake is about four feet and ten inches tall and a little over one hundred pounds. Blond-haired with blue-green eyes, he is pale and fair, like his father. He's not overweight, but he isn't exactly skinny. He's not even chunky or chubby, just a little tubby. He is, however, a prick. He is an insufferable know-it-all. He is sulky, moody, and caught up in his own little drama. While he comes off as caring about nobody but himself, he is actually very sensitive and pines for positive attention from his peers. As he has experienced mainly negative attention, he has been forced to settle for that. All he truly desires is some real friends.
Background: Blake's family is uptight. They are smart and ambitious, and obsessed with image. Instead of caring how things are, they care about what things look like. That's how it has been throughout Blake's childhood. Being as sensitive as he is hasn't helped either. His parents are brutally honest and insensitively critical. They've never related to Blake, at least not emotionally, and from them he has learned to put great stock in appearances. His brother was a bit of a surprise, but he is a beautiful blond-haired, blue-eyed child with an all-too sunny disposition, and he has quickly become their mother's favorite, leaving Blake pushed to the side.

» Name: Carmen
» Gender: Female
» Age: 1
» Appearance:
» Description: Carmen is an extremely dramatic cat, with a very high opinion of herself. She is dark brown and black cat, with huge eyes of bright blue. She is very finicky, sometimes wanting to be pet and paid attention to, but frequently hissing at the person that carelessly tries to lay a hand on her soft, dark fur. Blake is obviously her favorite, though she pretends that she doesn't like anyone.
Other: Blake really doesn't like Bradley. He doesn't understand how he's so well-liked, when Bradley's more portly than himself. He feels threatened by the Gryffindor, and is less then pleased that they're in the same House. The Sorting Hat put him in Gryffindor, deeming that the best House to help Blake reach his full potential.

Emma AVRY


Name: Avry Alison Hathaway
Gender: Female
Blood: Muggle-Born
Age: 11
» Birthday: November 12
House: Ravenclaw
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Black Walnut
» Core: Diricawl Feather and Dragon Heartstring
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Unyielding
» Description: Avry's wand is unusual in a various number of ways, the first and most noticeable, is the wood. Black walnut has very emotional properties, looking for a witch with good insight and instincts, but also for a person able to be completely honest with themselves, and if Avry fails to do so, she has been warned, the wand will lose most of it's power. Avry's wand is good for a variety of spells, the wood helping with charms, the dragon heartstring core boosting its power and the Diricawl feather almost adding a mellowing effect, along with boosting transfiguration. The wand is also on the shorter side of the length spectrum, at eleven inches exactly, fitting Avry's more quiet and shy personality. It is also quite inflexible, which fits her sometimes stubborn personality and refusal to change herself for other people, she knows that she cannot let others use her or walk all over her. Her wand is simple but pretty, and seems to suit her even with its dark colouring. There's a design of feathers carved into the handle of it, and Avry often finds herself running her fingers over the smooth edges and indents.
Appearance:
Description: Avry has a very unique appearance, everything about her seems to be a contrast or something almost out of place. She has pale skin that seems to be barely a shade darker than the colour of snow. Her dark brown hair looks almost black, and not because Avry has dyed it or changed its colour. Because of this, she was jokingly called Snow White for years by some of her friends and family. Avry's skin is far from perfect, at least in her own opinion. Across her nose are a series of light freckles that she does her best to ignore. Avry's eyes are another thing that is striking about her appearance, a bright, vivid colour that will sometimes look blue and sometimes look green, but most of the time just looks like it's somewhere in between the two. Avry is average height, at four feet and six inches, but she is also very thin. She doesn't eat much when she's upset or stressed, and Avry has felt that way a lot recently. She has a naturally quiet and low pitched voice, and she sometimes feels like she needs to shout for people to hear her at times. This doesn't sit very well with her, as Avry is fairly shy and afraid of being insulted or told that she's wrong. With her opinionated and stubborn nature, arguments quickly happen, with her family. Not only her family, in reality, but people that she's comfortable around...which aren't a lot. Once Avry stops feeling insecure and uncomfortable, she'll stop being so shy and polite. She can be very sarcastic, and has a bit of a pessimistic 'glass is half empty' view on the world (of course, you can never know exactly how much water is in the glass, because by measuring it you change the outcome, and the glass is twice as large as it needs to be). She's a bit of a smart-ass in a sense, and she'll focus on technicalities almost as a defence system, which has gotten her into a lot of trouble with her parents.
Background: Avry was born on an especially cold November morning, to her two young parents--both of them only twenty five. The two had gotten married a year prior to her birth, and decided that they wanted a child soon after the marriage, and that was how Avry came along. Things quickly grew less peaceful and happy in the family, as her parents Lucille and Abraham realized how much they truly disagreed on: the most important being how to raise Avry. But they toughed it out for a few years, and while things were tense, the two made an extreme effort not to fight in front of their young child. As she got older, however, that action became harder and harder, and when Avry was nine, they finally got divorced. From there there were a great number of fights that ensued, including a battle for custody that Avry's father eventually won. A rather horrid visitation system was set up, Avry spending three days with her father and then two with her mother, and alternating weekends, and switching the order. Basically, if Avry was with her father on Monday through Wednesday, she would spend thursday and friday with her mother, and then the weekend with her dad again, and spend the following monday and tuesday with her mom, followed by three days with her dad and a weekend with her mom. And then the cycle would repeat. All of this would become dreadfully messed up around holidays and summer vacations, which of course, resulted in more fights, which often led to no one but Avry feeling miserable. She received her Hogwarts letter at age eleven and set off to the school with the rather upsetting thought that at least her parents couldn't argue about her when she wasn't around.

Pet: Cat
» Name: Buttons
» Gender: Female
» Age: 3 Months
» Appearance:
» Description: Buttons is possibly the most amiable cat ever. She doesn't really seem to care what anyone does around her or to her, as long as she isn't actually physically hurt by it. If she is...well, then the claws come out, to say the least. Buttons manages to somehow look consistently sleepy, with eyes that appear to squint closed, even when they are not in fact doing so. Her fur is perfectly white, save for the few spots of light brown and black on the top of her head. Those 'imperfections' as some people might call them are actually what drove Avry to choose this cat from the store, as she looked different from the other cats, looked more realistic, a representation of Avry's imperfections, in her own mind (although the cat is much more easy-going than Avry herself).
Other: Avry prefers a lot of darker colours, especially in her dress and accessories, leaning more towards black, blue and purple than anything else, and has an almost hatred for the colour pink.

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) KYLE


Name: Kyle Algernon Faust
Gender: Male
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: July 19
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Acacia
» Core: Chimera Scale Fragment
» Length: 9 1/4 Inches
» Flexibility: Quite Rigid
» Description: Kyle's wand is an unassuming color of light ginger beige (it very much resembles a regular drumstick) that is as temperamental as his owner with a mind seemingly of its very own. It seems to know exactly what it wants to cast and what it does not like to cast, which sometimes has Kyle in practical tears of frustration. That being said, when it does want to work, the magic that it produces--when Kyle is wielding it--is sublime. The acacia wood sensed the talents in the young boy when he lightly grazed it with his small fingers and it began to glow from Kyle's touch. Ollivander hadn't sold an acacia wand in a long while, especially one combined with a chimera core; in fact, Ollivander was not the one to make the wand. It was an artefact that he had come into possession of and had decided it would be a loss to the wizarding world if it were not reused. Kyle's parents were skeptical about the boy having this heirloom, but Antonio, who had accompanied the Fausts, interjected and said that they would be making a big mistake if they didn't allow Kyle to at least try to bond with the wand. Kyle's parents conceded.
Appearance:
Description: Kyle has always been considered a small and delicate child; he was three months premature, a picky eater from the get go and not one to enjoy the "great outdoors" in any real way. He stands at four feet four and is pale and soft skinned with a head of shaggy dark brown hair and pale blue eyes. He is meticulous about his appearance; he doesn't like to get his hands dirty and he only wears certain colors. Some would call him a fussy child, but Kyle just knows what he wants and likes and he doesn't think that he needs to explain himself. He is extremely bright and spends a lot of time reading, whether it be books or on the internet. He loves any kind of puzzles and murder mysteries (his favorite show right now is Sherlock on BBC). Although he is a quiet child, Kyle is terribly articulate when he speaks; his parents think he has an eidetic memory. He prefers grownups to kids his own age, because he finds that kids often irritate him with stupid questions about things they should know (he does!) and they constantly want to touch his stuff.
Background: Kyle was born to prestigious, pure-blooded parents and he is the only grandchild in the Vitale family. Consequently, he is terribly spoiled, but he has also been told since birth that he must amount to someone of importance. Shaming the family name is not an option, even if he is only a Vitale on his mother's side. His father's side of the family, while ambitious, seem laid back in comparison. Kyle spends a good amount of time under his uncle, Antonio's, tutelage (he was given a private tour of Hogwarts long before he was eligible to attend and it has been stressed upon numerous occasions that Slytherin is the House to be in when he is of age).

Pet: Mouse
» Name: Dr. Watson
» Gender: Male
» Age: 2 Weeks
» Appearance:
» Description: There isn't much to Dr. Watson except that he can calm Kyle down by simply being watched for a little bit by the boy. The little field mouse doesn't like to be touched, picked up or held, but he'll let Kyle feed him tiny bits of cheese from his fingertip if he doesn't move his hand around. He is only a few weeks old and Antonio has warned him to never bring the mouse around his black mamba once at Hogwarts.
Other: Kyle adores his uncle, and never hesitates to speak about him if he is given the chance.

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) KAT


Name: Kathrynn Edwina Åkerstedt-Swanstrom
Gender: Female
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: December 29
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Aspen
» Core: Unicorn Hair
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Pliable
» Description: It is probably safe to say that Kat chose her wand partly based on its appearance as well as its function: the look of the ivory-esque aspen as well as the lore that surrounds the elitism of this wood were both two very attractive features for the young girl. Yes, the wand is supposed to choose the user but Kat does not believe for even a second that she did not chose it. It was the first wand she tried and the only wand she had her mind set on (of course she had put a great deal of thought into her wand beforehand) when she walked into Ollivander's store. She wanted unicorn hair for its consistency, believing that good spells all of the time outweighs some flashly and marvelous spells some of the time.
Appearance:
Description: Kat is a very pretty girl who was taught at a young age to maximize the effectiveness of her appearance. She is coldly beautiful, keen on showcasing her unattainability. She stands at five feet one naturally with a willowy, graceful figure, weighing ninety pounds. She has very little muscle on her frame and appears frail at times because of this. Her hair is white-blonde, long and straight and her eyes are a piercing ice-blue. Her skin is like flawless ivory, perfectly smooth and blemishless which she enhances with a slight pale blush on her porcelain cheeks. Kat's behaviour regarding her appearance goes hand in hand with her strive to be perfect. Kat is a natural leader and her demeanour is authoritative and confident. She is always the "main girl" of any clique she is currently in--starting most of them herself--and her self-perfectionism and obedience to her parents as well as the School's administration makes her likable among authority figures.
Background: The sole child of first generation immigrants from Iceland and Sweden who now reside in England and from a long line of pure-blood wizards and witches has placed an extreme amount of pressure on Kat to excel in her own life as a witch in order to carry on the legacy of her family name at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Her parents, both having attended Durmstrang Institute for their education, look to Kat to bring the Åkerstedt-Swanstrom "fame and fortune" in Great Britain. Unlike most children, Kat is certain that the sorting hat will place her in House Slytherin and like most things in her life, she will not be wrong. She has always graduated at the top of her class and now that she is entering Hogwarts, she hopes to maintain her near perfect GPA upon completion of her formal education.
Relations:
» Jóhannes Guðmundur Åkerstedt - Father; 41; Pure-Blood
» Viveka Gertrude Swanstrom - Mother; 39; Pure-Blood
Pet: Snake
» Name: Hel
» Gender: Female
» Age: 1
» Appearance:
» Description: Hel is a very pretty Silver Queen Ghost Corn Snake with pale ivory scales and pale beige/gold markings. Not one for the "cuddly type" of animal as well as unkeen on the idea of having to take care of another creature more than was necessary, Kat selected a snake before her first year at Hogwarts because of its low maintenance as a pet. Hel was only nine inches when she became an Åkerstedt-Swanstrom, but they have been told she can grow to six feet long. She is temperamentally docile with Kat and has never bitten her mistress although if you are not Kat, do not try to pick her up.
Other: Kat is a strange mix of princess and hard worker. While she is pampered and spoiled, she is also diligent and disciplined. She has always been obedient to both her parents and her professors but this might only be the case because none of them have ever asked her to do something unappealing or what she would not have wanted to do anyway. Kat carries herself with extreme grace and poise and her physical appearance is always spotless, chic and fashionable. Kat is fluent in Swedish, Icelandic and English.

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) FIERA


Name: Fiera Llewellyn
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: June 29
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Holly
» Core: Erkling Darts
» Length: 10 1/2 Inches
» Flexibility: Rather Bendy
» Description: Fiera tried several various wands before settling on the holly wood one that she now owns. The instrument of a light beige, pearlish color that is painted with pale pink and white designs on the handle. It has a ring carved into it where the handle ends, tapering to a point where she shoots her spells from. The wand is pretty much an extension of Fiera's personality with the wood's ability to work happily for those who may need help overcoming their tempers. The erkling darts core suits the little girl too, because although she does not necessarily seek the limelight, she can hold it quite well and people tend to notice her when she is present. The darts increase prowess in hexes and charms, but detract from defensive magic, which makes Fiera's mother a little worried although the little girl doesn't think it's anything she can't handle.
Appearance:
Description: Fiera is a beautiful girl with an angelic appearance that is definitely akin to ethereal. She has long, wavy hair that reaches her waist and is always brushed to perfection by her mother, light brown, sometime hazel eyes and rosy cheeks. She's a petite little girl, who stands at four feet seven and weighs seventy-seven pounds. Fiera personifies the words "sweet" and "innocent", but as her best friend will tell you, she has a temper that matches her name. She doesn't get angry easily though; it takes a lot to make her mad. Bullying her best friend, Gio, for one will do it and she won't hesitate to stand up for those she thinks needs the help. Although her appearance may make her seem like she is prissy and high maintenance, the truth of the matter is Fiera is very down to earth and loves to run around and play in the dirt while having great adventures at the playground (her mother is the one that insists she look nice). She indulges her mother though and lets Selena dress her up whenever she wants to because she loves her mom very much.
Background: Fiera's parents broke up when she was barely a toddler, and so she doesn't remember her father much, who stuck around for a few years to take her on some weekends. As the years passed though, he stopped coming around and has recently moved to Italy. Fiera and her mother are quite happy on their own and although Fiera misses her father from time to time, she's too busy having a good time to really notice his absence. Her mother placed her daughter in modeling at an early age and while Fiera would rather be playing outside, she has become quite adept at posing in front of the camera for various shoots. Selena doesn't spend a penny of this money: it's all going into a trust fund for Fiera for when she's older.

» Description: After seeing doves in a circus act one day, Fiera begged her mother to buy some for their house, to which her mother said that if she still wanted them by her birthday, she would get her some. Fiera did, and so on her eleventh birthday--the same day she received her Hogwart's letter--she was given two doves with antique cages and everything. They are lovely birds who are very well behaved and Fiera loves to take them out of their cages to have them fly free around the house.
Other: Fiera and Gio are best friends; she tells him everything.


s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments GIO


Name: Giovanni Deorwin
Gender: Male
Blood: Muggle-Born
Age: 11
» Birthday: October 3
House: Hufflepuff
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Apple
» Core: Crup Tail
» Length: 9 7/8 Inches
» Flexibility: Reasonably Springy
» Description: Painted with a clear lacquer, Gio's wand is warm brown color with both yellow and grey undertones. It is very simple, with no embellishment, and has a bit of a natural twist to it. It is a reasonably powerful wand, despite the core being useful for almost solely Care of Magical Creatures (the wood makes up for it a great deal). It was attracted to Gio for his sense of loyalty as well as strong ideals. Plus, it doesn't hurt that he is rather charming and generally-speaking, loved by those around him. It is not at all suited to the Dark Arts, as can be said of Gio. It was the second wand Gio tried. This wand provides some indication that he will be well-loved and long-lived in his life, and that he may have a yet undiscovered ability to converse with magical creatures in their natural tongues.
Appearance:
Description: Of average height and a little on the chubby side, Gio is an undeniably adorable child with dark brown hair, grey eyes, and a rosy complexion. He is a sweet, loving, and gentle individual who treats both animals and younger children with the utmost care and respect. He is kind to everyone and is very sensitive to other people's feelings. He hates being yelled at or pushed, he's never been good at standing up for himself, despite his mother's best efforts. He just doesn't understand why anyone would ever be less than kind to another person or even to animals. Gio is very devoted and loyal to the things he cares about.
Background: Annabelle and Bernie, Gio's parents, were very much in love when Gio was born. They were living together happily when Bernie had a sudden, unexpected, and fatal heart attack. Gio was only two at the time, so he has no memory of the man, other than the picture that sits on his mother's dresser. They still live in the same house, in the same neighborhood as his best friend Fiera. Fiera and Giovanni met through their parents, both single mothers trying to raise a child on their own.

» Appearance:
» Description: Albert is a baby chameleon who is normally green. Gio likes to keep the little guy in his pocket so he doesn't get lost (he likes to change colors and blend into his surroundings). Albert is more than happy to stay with his much larger friend, especially when Gio gives him bits of his food; Albert particularly likes mashed potatoes. Albert is a bit shy and slow-moving.
Other: Fiera is Gio's best friend he's ever had. He was relieved to discover they would both be attending Hogwarts, though he never could have imagined he had magical powers.


s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments ELODIE


Name: Elodie Lucile Fontaine
Gender: Female
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: January 7
House: Hufflepuff
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Cedar
» Core: Kneazle Whisker
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Inflexible
» Description: Elodie's wand, being made of cedar (Australian red cedar, to be specific) and Kneazle whisker is eleven inches long and rather inflexible. Like most wands, it is painted with a clear lacquer letting its natural color—in this case, a burnished red, with all the character of wood—take its place. It is a fairly strong wand, particularly regarding Divinations and defensive magic. It is a handsome wand, thin, and tapering gently from the base to the tip, attracted to the little French girl for her intuition and insight, strength of character, loyalty... but also for some less obvious traits. She is very protective of the people she cares about, even if that is not obvious at first glance. She notices more than she lets on, and she might very well prove to be a truly frightening opponent, should someone test her, especially were the stakes of her friends and family involved.
Appearance:
Description: Elodie is a sweet, dark-haired girl. She's a little on the short side, but her parents are both fairly tall, so she holds hope that she may one day not be among the shorter of her peers. She is very quiet, but by no means unengaged. Rather, she prefers to watch and learn, and give herself time to make up her mind on her own. She is a bit shy, and as such is not the type to directly challenge anyone. Instead, she makes little remarks that have a way of returning to the mind in a nagging, pointed way. She has porcelain-colored skin, with a dainty sprinkling of freckles the bridge of her nose and her cheekbones. Green eyes stare observantly at the world, desperate to learn, but hating to judge. She has a quiet voice that well-suits her. She is rather open-minded, more so than her parents, at least. She is also very accepting, loyal, and hard-working, with a curious obstinate streak that shows itself in little murmurs of time. Still, there are a few surprises tucked up her sleeve that no one has caught onto yet.
Background: Elodie is technically French, but she grew up mainly in England. Her father moved there on some Ministry business when she was little, and when it was clear the job had turned into more of a permanent thing, Elodie and her mother joined him there. Elodie and her cousin Christine do not live especially close to each other, but they have gotten to see each other on a semi-regular basis while growing up, despite Elodie's mother's disapproval of little Aislinn—Christine's Muggle friend. Elodie couldn't help but be pleased when her cousin informed her that both she and Aislinn would be attending Hogwarts; she rather likes the spunky redhead.

Pet: Cat
» Name: Claira
» Gender: Female
» Age: 1
» Appearance:
» Description: Claira is a beautiful cat who is always at Elodie's side, twining back and forth among her feet. She rarely meows, except when she senses something is desperately wrong. She is mostly grey with black accents but her underneath is slid white. Her eyes are a beautiful green color and they tend to stay intently focused on one thing (such as Elodie) while her ears flick back and forth catching noises in her surroundings, occasionally giving the area a glance. She's a pretty normal cat, with both good days and bad. Elodie is her person, but she'll generally accept gentle attention from anyone.
Other: Elodie hopes to make friends with Aislinn while at Hogwarts. She is fluent in both French and English, and additionally speaks a bit of German.

ASTER


Name: Aster Nadereh Mokri
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: October 13
House: Ravenclaw
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Willow
» Core: Unicorn Hair
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Supple
» Description: Aster was not surprised as she tried wand after wand to no result. Her sister yawned and even their mum looked worried. Ollivander mumbled to himself, a curious expression on his face, as he pulled out a thin, dark brownish red wand with no decoration but an indent about two inches from the butt. She took the wand, trying to hide the frown that was creeping across her face, and gave it a wave. Blue and green sparks flew from the end, shocking everyone in the room. Aster’s wand will have consistent magic, especially powerful in non-verbal and healing magic. It may not be especially powerful in other fields but will produce steady and reliable magic. It will be highly loyal to her. Willow owners almost always have unwarranted insecurities, despite their great potentials. Aster likely feels she has lots to learn and will always be open to suggestions. Her wand will not turn easily to dark magic, and she will probably not want it to. She will likely be as loyal to her friends and what she believes in as her wand is to her. She is most likely shy and not drawn to flamboyant or showy magic. She and her wand will likely enjoy change but not necessarily seek it out.
Appearance:
Description: Aster's tan skin and dark hair take after her father while her short stature and hazel eyes are those of her mother. She is only four feet with a slim, runners build. She has freckled arms and a casual style. Aster is introverted and keeps to herself. She has trouble making friends, but she bonds deeply with those she does. Although she is not naturally gifted at memorization like many Ravenclaws, she is clever and tries hard, causing her to excel in school. Aster finds company exhausting unless she knows the other people extremely well. Despite her reluctance to offer up her opinion, she will not pretend to be someone she is not. She doesn't try to fit in or hide her interests and views. Aster is a bookworm and a nerd, enjoying learning fully.
Background: Aster's mother was a caucasian witch while her father was an Iranian muggle. Her parents were fairly well off and she had a peaceful if somewhat sheltered life for her first six years. She knew of magic but rarely saw it used, for her mother found it unnecessary. When Aster was six, her parents went through a turmoil in the marriage ultimately ending in divorce. Just after this, Aster and her mother moved in with her wizard grandparents and she truly learned of magic. When the moved out, she yearned for the magic she had seen and couldn't wait to make some of her own. Her mother remarried a man working as a carpenter. Her step father was kind and funny, and Aster soon learned to love him in his own way, despite the fact that he was most definitely not her dad. When she was eight, Aster's younger sister was born. Aster was bullied in school for a variety of reasons, namely her quiet personality, and was shunned by most of the other students. One child however, Olivia, reached out to Aster and they became the best of friends. Aster is still in contact with her despite the fact that, obviously, Olivia has no knowledge of the wizarding world. The best day of her life was when Aster received the letter confirming she actually had the magic in her.

He is small at only three pounds with light ginger fur, bright, inquisitive, green eyes, and a small pink nose. He has many white splotches and a long tail. Theo is playful and curious, despite that he is easily frightened.
Other: Aster hopes she will make more friends at Hogwarts than she did in primary school and is excited to channel the magic inside of her.

Emma JUDE


Name: Julian Fiyero Lazar
Gender: Male
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: January 5
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 7
» Quidditch: NA
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Cypress
» Core: Erkling Darts
» Length: 13 Inches
» Flexibility: Slightly Bendy
» Description: Julian's wand is made out of cypress, a wood often associated with valour and bravery in the wizard owning the wand. And while the superstition of a heroic death may be more than a little creepy to him, at least it's a good way to go out. The wand's core is erkling darts, which is often a good core for people who like being the center of attention, often performers, and they help perform hexes and charms, although they aren't the best with defensive magic—he doesn't like fighting much anyways, and certainly not defensively. This particular wand was the seventh he tried in Diagon Alley, and it shot out green sparks when he waved it. He had taken a liking to it's appearance straight away, with the wand's beautiful display of different wood colours. It shows both dark and light shades of brown, making it look even more unique than it already is.The handle of the wand is not exaggerated, it is simply a part of the wood slightly thicker than the rest of the wand, and decorated with engravings in a design of triangles.
Appearance:
Description: Julian is a fairly tall person for his age, standing at the same height as his sister, four feet and eight inches tall, and has light brown hair with blond highlights. He has a very showy personality, much like his twin sister Lorraine. He is very stubborn, not often changing his mind about things, and also has a tendency to make snap judgements. Julian harbours a deep love of music, and is a talented musician. He is learning to play both the guitar and piano, and sings on occasion as well. He does like to show off, although he doesn't do so very often. He is smarter than people might think, very good at arithmetic, but he is also a sporty person. He likes to take care of his body and often jogs around the campus. He is quick on his feet and a very fast thinker, good to have around in emergencies. Jude is a loving and protective person, especially of his family, which Lorraine commonly points out.
Background: Jude is technically the youngest child in the family, born only two and a half minutes after Lorraine, as she continually reminds him whenever she is feeling that he is being too protective. He grew up playing Quidditch and watching his parents use magic, so he has a natural love, appreciation, and talent for both. When he was eleven, both Jude and his sister received letters inviting them to Hogwarts, and of course they went. They were sorted into different houses, Jude into Gryffindor and Lorraine into Slytherin, but they haven't grown apart any. Jude knows that he has a good life, and won't often complain about his life, but gets easily irritated when other people do, especially when their problems aren't that large. However, if a person does have real problems, he is always sympathetic, helpful, and optimistic.
Relations:
» Blake Lazar - Father; 55; Author; Former Ravenclaw
» Lindsey Lazar - Mother; 53; Author; Former Ravenclaw

Pet: Cat
» Name: Boo
» Gender: Female
» Age: 6 Months
» Appearance:
» Description: Boo is Julian's cat, that he got only a month before leaving for Hogwarts. She's a tiny kitten, small enough to fit in his hand. He got Boo at the same time that Lori got her hedgehog Nutella, and the rest of their school materials. After Jude dubbed her pet Nutella, Lori named his pet Boo. She meant to bother and tease him, but the name ended up sticking, and it seems to fit the kitten, who is terrified of almost everything.
Other: Julian's parents were obsessed with musical theatre, and gave him the middle name 'Fiyero' after the male lead from the musical 'Wicked'. He doesn't often use it.

CRISPIN


Name: Crispin Leander Ricksten
Gender: Male
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: February 23
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Vine
» Core: Phoenix Feather
» Length: 14 Inches
» Flexibility: Pliable
» Description: As Crispin entered Ollivander's shop, an unusual even took place. A tattered box fell on to the floor across the room and flipped open to reveal a thin, undecorated, wand. It glowed golden, tendrils of magical flame beginning to flow up from the blindingly bright tip. Ollivander walked, beaming, over to Crispin and nodded for him to retrieve the wand, clearly his match. Crispin reluctantly walked over, more than a little bit frightened, and wrapped his fingers around it, and was surprised that he wasn't burned. His parents glowed with pride as Ollivander declared the wand as vine. Events like these were almost unheard of with other woods and unusual even with vine like Crispin's. His wand is capable of a great range of magic, although at first it may not show. It may take control and act on it's own at times. This wand choosing him suggests that Crispin seeks a great purpose. He also likely has secrets and hidden depths. He probably is independent and detached. He may have a more dramatic style of magic. His tendencies are likely not given to change, but he can adapt when necessary.
Appearance:
Description: Crispin is of average height with a promisingly athletic build. He has a round, young looking face, but a soon as conversation begins any hint of immaturity is abolished. Straight brown hair crowns his pale, freckled face. His eyes are a sparkly blue. Crispin is willing to do anything for what he believes is right. He is clever and intelligent, preferring to stay in the background as his plots unfold. A quiet boy, Crispin doesn't enjoy the company of any but his dearest friends. He is fiercely loyal to those lucky enough to count themselves within this group while others are nothing more than pawns to him. He is like most Slytherins fighting to change the world, but he's trying to change it the opposite direction. Crispin values his Pureblood background but believes people should be judged based on ability, not birth.
Background: Crispin was the second child in a high class pureblood family. He was often overshadowed by his older brother and always tried to get attention through rebellious acts. It was during one of these, an unsupervised escapade into a muggle town, that he met his first muggle friend. The boy he got to know was intelligent and curious, if a bit cold hearted, and Crispin bonded easily with him. He had always had a creeping suspicion that his family's views of muggles were ill founded, and this was all the proof nine year old Crispin needed. He was torn between two sides, his family and his own pride in their heritage, and the equal intelligence he saw in muggles as he ran away again and again. When he got his letter for Hogwarts, he was relieved to get away from his pushy family, even though he loved them dearly.

» Gender: Female
» Age: 2
» Appearance:
» Description: Endora is large for her breed of owl, but still quick and agile. She is playful and loving, providing light heartedness that Crispin's life otherwise lacks. She is completely devoted to him and has brown and white coloring
Other: Crispin is called Cris only by close friends. He finds it somewhat demeaning but allows a few to use it anyway. He will be immediately hostile to muggle borns but will accept them soon enough. He has conflicting feelings about blood status and how he should relate to the world in general.

LUKA


Name: Luka Pankov Lambert-Blair
Gender: Male
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: December 21
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Dogwood
» Core: Dragon Heartstring
» Length: 13 Inches
» Flexibility: Quite Flexible
» Description: Luka’s school shopping was done with his fathers and a fairly annoying representative from Hogwarts. Luka knew from the moment Ollivander revealed the gold leafed branches and the flaring grip that this wand would be his. When he tried it out, he shocked his fathers and the school’s representatives as the wand took control, creating a dazzling pattern that began to chase their guide around the shop. A very amused Ollivander watched on with badly hidden grin. His wand will probably be flamboyant and powerful. It may be temperamental and mischievous at times, although it is also capable of serious magic. It will not easily perform non-verbal magic, tending towards noisier spells. Luka getting chosen by this wand shows that he is likely noisy and easily bored, with a playful nature. He is probably drawn to excitement and fun, not capable of a quiet life. He is likely loud and quirky. It is possible he will turn to dark magic, and he, with the aid of his wand, will learn magic quickly. More dramatic and showy magic will seem natural to him. The pair will likely be drawn to change. However, as Luka watched his wand scare the embarrassed guide, all he knew was that his wand would be his best friend.
Appearance:
Description: Luka's face is framed by blonde hair falling to just over his bright blue eyes. He has light eyebrows and full lashes. His light complexion and a round, chubby cheeked face. At five feet, he is slim but fast and strong. Luka is outspoken and a prankster. He is funny and tricky, able to lighten even the darkest situation. Even so, he is helpful and kind hearted, never hesitating before lending a hand. He does well in school although it is not his highest priority. Although he is not easily insulted, he rises to the slightest insult of those he loves. Luka is kind, tricky, and protective.
Background: Luka was born to a poor, farming, family in Russia. He had many older siblings and they realized they could not afford to give him a good life. They sent him to an orphanage where he was smuggled out when a gay couple, Archer and Leo, in the UK agreed to adopt him. After the age of three, when he was adopted, his raising was largely normal although he was at first teased for his fathers' sexuality. He soon became well liked in his school until his powers started coming to view. Luka was then shunned again for his new difference for his classmates. When Luka got his Hogwarts letter he was thrilled to begin his new life but sad to leave his good friends from home.

His yellow eyes standout on his pale face while his body and wings are a speckled brown. Eddie has a dark beak and large pointed ears. He has a wingspan of sixty inches and a height of two feet. He has a regal sort of persona with no time for those owls who laze around all day. Luka disappoints him somewhat on this front, but largely they are great friends.
Other: Luka has no knowledge of his magical roots but plans to do his best at Hogwarts as a muggle-born. He was shocked by this new world he had no knowledge of.

tori | 52 comments EMMA


Name: Emmalee Renee Williams
Gender: Female
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: August 14
House: Hufflepuff
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Hazel
» Core: Crup Tail
» Length: 12 Inches
» Flexibility: Reasonably Springy
» Description: Emma had yet to turn eleven by the time she received her first wand—though she was mere days away. She walked into the shop, her quiet gaze observant and intrigued by the clutter and the dust motes swirling in the air. Her and her father's rather shy manner made it awhile before Mr. Ollivander realized that the two were there. But, after he saw small, sensitive, and clear-headed Emma, he knew exactly what to do. Smiling, and indicating he would be but a moment, he ran to the back and began to rummage through piles of wands. Once he found the long, pale-tan, and crystal adorned wand, he bounced back upfront, and placed it in her dainty hands. Noises and colors burst from the wand—clear greens mingled with the caws of birds, and deep blues swirled with the crashing of waves. It was a perfect match. The wand, being hazel, was most likely attracted to Emma for her ability to keep a stable emotional state, even through times of duress—an excellent skill to have when handling hazel wands—and understands her emotions. The hazel aspect could also sense her devotion, and knew that she would become skillful at the art of magic. The crup tail core also suggests that the wand was her perfect match because of her loyalty to others and her faithfulness, not to mention the fact it was made for Care of Magical Creatures, a course Emma intends to pursue. Hazel wands are best suited for those who can best keep their emotions together, and those that are well aware of their emotions. Hazel is also unique in it's ability to detect water underground and will, if passing over concealed wells and springs, let out silvery, tear-shaped smoke. The crup tail core suggests the wand was built for Care of Magical Creatures, and it is a core that values loyalty.
Appearance:
Description: Emma is a rather quiet and a mouse-like girl, keeping her opinions and ideals to herself. She rarely speaks out, and only does so when one calls on her to answer a question. Emma is also rather observant and intuitive to the world around her, and can often sense, in a manner of speaking, when something is about to go terrible awry. She is honest and true, and loyal, not one to run off telling even the whitest of white lies. She is a trustworthy confidant and violence is not in her nature. But, despite her peace-keeping qualities, she is very blunt, and if you seek the answer to something, Emma will tell you as she sees it. She is also one that keeps her emotions under-wraps—she despises showing the world her feelings. However, when it comes to animals, she will positively melt. She feels the need to save every stray, and playing with her kitten is the only time she really smiles. Along with her unnoticeable personality, she is horribly short, a mere four feet, and weighs barely fifty pounds. Being so slight, she tends to get overlooked, not that she minds. It's not bad playing the wallflower. Emma is rather cute, with her large blue eyes—eyes that never fail to look innocent—and softly curling brown hair. Emma is also very girly in the way she dresses, and prefers skirts and gowns over trousers and t-shirts.
Background: Emmalee Renee Williams was born and raised in London, hidden from the view of Muggles as many wizarding families choose to do. As a baby, she was always energetic, yet reserved, rarely getting upset or giggling. She was indifferent to most, and honestly didn't care about much of anything. Except Tybalt, the beloved family owl. They bonded over long nights, nights when Emma found herself bored and out of people to talk to. Tybalt always listened, and even brought her back clumps of flowers the day her grandmother passed away. Emma loved the majestic Screech Owl, but all good companions eventually pass away... Emma was eight when the owl died, ripe with age, but with a fierce heart. It saddened the whole family, but Emma the most—Tybalt was the one who awakened her passion for animals. But Emma, even after the owl was buried, never did shed a tear. She said her goodbyes with a heavy heart, but never cried... A couple years later and she found herself in Diagon Alley, preparing for her first year at Hogwarts. Her mother was busy working, but her father accompanied her, helping her collect her things while telling stories of his past years at Hogwarts. And then Emma found her Pookie. She loves that cat as much as she did Tybalt, and Pookie is one of the only friends she really has. But, Emma is hoping to get over her shyness this year and make actual people-friends.

Emma, with the soul of one who needs to save everything, approached the kitten and offered her a handful of bread crumbs. The emaciated kitten happily munched, and that was that. Ever since, Pookie has been utterly loyal to Emma, and shows her affection every chance she gets. She is skinny, and rather petite cat, but can be a fierce huntress if an owl catches her eye... Pookie has an honest, and demanding personality, and is also very lovable—but she is not always trusting of people. Emma hopes she will grow out of her distrustful nature, but is secretly pleased Pookie chose her to befriend.
Other: Emma's favorite color is indigo, and he loves to play the violin.

Age: 11
» Birthday: January 2
House: Hufflepuff
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Pear
» Core: Gnome Saliva and Pixie Eggs
» Length: 11 7/8 Inches
» Flexibility: Inflexible
» Description: Ollie was instantly granted a bond with his long, intricately carved, tan wand. It was as if both had been born for that moment of truth. Ollie, like most wizards receiving their first wand, was eleven as he entered Mr. Ollivander's shop, and a smile was painted upon his face. He was eager and bursting with excitement as the wandmaker rummaged among the boxes and shelves, searching for the perfect wand. Mr. Ollivander, grinning as he held out the wand in his wizened hands, said, "Go on, take it!" Ollie, after looking at the tool in awe, plucked it from the old man's hands and gave it a twirl. A shot of magic burst from the tip, and both the wandmaker and Ollie let out a whoop of joy. The unique wand was attracted to Ollie for his warm heart, generosity, creative mind, and his slightly mischievous nature. Ollie loves his wand, and knows that there is no better match than it and him. The Gnome Saliva gives a Charms prowess and the Pixie Eggs make the wand Light, and good at Charms. This wand shows he will likely be skilled in Care of Magical Creatures.
Appearance:
Description: Ollie is a rather tall young man, standing just shy of five feet, and is a little bit plump, but not enough to be considered "fat". His eyes hold a permanent glint in them—happiness, perhaps?—and they are a unique blend of blue and green, framed by dark eyelashes. Ollie's hair, if not kept short, flaps about his ears and curls in an unruly manner, making him appear entirely unkempt and disorganized. Which, unruly hair or not, he is. Ollie is notorious for misplacing just about everything, and cannot keep track of much—he'd lose his head if it wasn't attached to his shoulders. Ollie is also a very warm-hearted person, and loves to bring joy to others. Generous is another word to describe him as he would willingly give the shirt of his back if one was in need. He would never refuse to share with someone, and loves including the loner kid, or someone less likely to have a friend to make them feel special. Ollie is also a bit of a prankster, and will play practical jokes on his friends from time to time—not to mention his teachers! Overall, Ollie is kind soul with a devious streak.
Background: Oliver Michael Jacobson was born in Wimbourne, England to a successful mother and father. His parents had never any luck with conceiving children, so Ollie is something of a miracle baby. The day he was born was a joyous one, and his father, who was in the middle of a Quidditch match, had to forfeit the game to watch his baby being born. Howard regrets nothing, and loves his little Ollie, as does Bernadette, who nearly died from blood loss while in labor. But their bouncing baby boy was worth the pain, and nearly losing a job. Oliver grew up clumsily, and even today forgets that gravity is a very real element, but he had—and still has—a big heart, and a need to give. Oliver also was a very easily amused child, and laughed at the simplest of the things. But, much to his father's disappointment, Ollie was just not good at flying. The first time he was put on a broom, he crashed head first into their house. Luckily he was okay, and his mother is a Healer. Altogether, Ollie had a fun and pretty normal—at least by wizard standards—and, while nervous, his mother and father have assured him that his first year at Hogwarts will be momentous.

KATRINA


Name: Katrina Mei Myint
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: July 15
Position: Student
House: Gryffindor
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Ash
» Core: Ramora Scales
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Supple
» Description: Katrina's wand is Ash with Ramora Scales as its core. Her wand is approximately eleven inches, and is flexible. When she first got her wand she was a bit surprised. Wizards with ash tended to be stubborn and perhaps had a tint of courage within them. Katrina - although rather determined and set never considered herself to be a brave girl. However she beamed proudly, at the information. However Ollivander warned her, the wand never listened to an arrogant wizard, or the pushy ones. He added in that she would need to find the thin line between arrogant, and modest in order to control the wand. The core of her wand was Ramora Scales. As she received her wand Ollivander had mentioned that most wizards with Ramora Scales were seer. Katrina had always been fascinated with seers, so at the piece of information she was startled. Although seers had a remarkable amount of power they were often laughed at, or not believed. Katrina was also told that wands with Ramora Scales were especially excellent at potions, and healing. They often were good at water-based spells. When Katrina finally got her wand it warmed in her hand, making her entire body feel as if she was on a cloud. To her the wand seemed to have a heartbeat of its own. Slightly frightened she examined the wand carefully. The wand was considerably light and she discovered its flexibility. Much to Katrina's delight the wand was neither completely white, or black. Rather it was brown and to her that was more or less the middle of both colors.
Appearance:
Description: As first appearances go, Katrina doesn't necessarily make a bad one. With a height of four feet and six inches, she isn't short or tall. Katrina has black bangs that she detests. Backwards you can see that her hair is actually wavy, and rather long. She sees the world through her olive eyes. When not seen in her school uniform, Katrina dons, on either a mini skirt and blouse or shorts and shirt. During the colder weather she wears sweaters, and jeans. Her ears are both pierced and usually have some small earrings on them. She rarely is ever seen in bracelets or rings, as they have been known for distracting her from her work. Necklaces however is her favorite type of jewelry to wear. Katrina is seen as a girl with many different traits somehow rolled into one simple girl. She is stubborn as a mule, and refuses to budge at all. Whenever she wants something she will rarely ever take the word 'no' for an answer. Whenever Katrina doesn't find something out straightaway she tries different tactics to get her goal. Katrina is also rather understanding. She has a gift you could say of seeing peoples emotions and helping them. Many people in her life have had many different issues and she somehow can help them. Katrina can sniff out when someone is trying to hide their emotions. Although she may not say something about it, she will usually know. However Katrina herself is bad at telling how she feels. Her biggest flaw is never trusting. She has a huge issue of not trusting anyone. It usually takes her a while for her to trust you - even if she never shows it. On the outside she could be a perfectly normal person, and on the inside she is broken up. However music helps her let things out. Its her way of just expressing herself somehow. Another flaw of hers is her pride. Katrina is often too proud to admit that she needs help, or that she isn't okay. Her pride is usually neglecting her on actually getting things accomplished, and she hates saying the three words 'I need help'. Her final biggest flaw within her is her insecurities sometime speak and she gets fearful. Katrina has a lot of confidence in herself, that is really how she was brought up. However her fears will always be at the back of her head speaking out to her. Making her feel as if maybe, just maybe she can't make it. Often she pushes the doubts out but they always find a way to make it back.
Background: Katrina doesn't know her real father. He died a couple of months after she was born and never got the privilege of knowing who he was. She and her mother spent the first couple of years together taking over a small apartment. Her mother at first scraped up whatever she could in the muggle world, missing the wizard world dearly. At the age of seven, Katrina's mother, Lili finally began dating once more. She stepped out and much to her disappointment only met failure. Finally she met Arun, and fell in love. The two married soon and Katrina was presented with a new family. Her step-father was born into a family of wizards, where he was the only non-wizard. He had originally married a witch until the two of them divorced. However Arun, still had one child named Jiang. Jiang was in near the end of his seventh year of Hogwarts when Katrina met him. The two of them had an instant bond and became close siblings. A year after her mother married Arun, Katrina got her acceptance letter from Hogwarts. When she entered Hogwarts for the first time, she was awed. She was amazed by the ceiling, that seemed to have no roof, and the candles floating in mid-air. When her name was called up to the Sorting Hat, Katrina jumped with excitement. She'd just settled in the chair when the Hat announced her as a Gryffindor.
Relations:
» Arun Myint - Step-Father; 46; Police; Muggle
» Lili Myint - Mother; 43; Broom-Maker, Former Hufflepuff
» Jiang Myint - Step-Brother; 20; Studies Dragons; Former Ravenclaw
Pet: Cat
» Name: Stella
» Gender: Female
» Age: 3
» Appearance:
» Description: Stella in fact looks like a mini-leopard. She has brown fur with black spots scattered all over her. Her pelt is usually groomed, and rarely ruffled. Stella's eyes are a deep blue, and her ears are always pricked up in case she hears something. Her pelt is incredibly soft like a pillow or feathers. Like most kittens she has a natural curiosity like most kits do. She wakes up with a grumpy smile as she is tired, but gradually smiles as the day progresses. Stella usually somehow finds time in her day to just retreat from the day and take a moment to breath. If you were to just sit on bed and speak to Stella, she turns to look at you. Somehow Stella has a way of making it seem as if she really can understand, and wants to help.
Other: Katrina has several nicknames that she will accept. Kat, Rina, Kitty, Trina. There is one more nickname that she will only let you call her, if she has known you for a long time and likes you. Mei, her middle name is the nickname that she rarely goes by. Her favorite color is Iris, and she enjoys sitting on grass and staring at the clouds as they lazily pass by.


Jessica ❀Sparky❀ | 23 comments RORY


Name: Rory Elisabeth MacCallan
Gender: Female
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: April 3
Position: Student
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Maple
» Core: Unicorn Hair and Bowtruckle Bark
» Length: 11 1/3 Inches
» Flexibility: Reasonably Springy
» Description: Rory couldn’t wait to try out wands; her enthusiasm even made Mr. Ollivander chuckle. It only began to waver after the tenth wand fizzled out, upon which Ollivander reached to the back of an old, dusty shelf. “This wand won’t let you rest,” he warned her. “It’s got a strong streak of wanderlust.” She’d just smiled and pulled it out. It was simple but striking, with a smooth, pale stem and a darker handle engraved with vines. Her fingers fit perfectly into the two carved grooves, and her whole chest thrummed with energy when she cast a charm. Maple’s thirst for adventure suited her well, as did her cores’ tendencies toward loyalty, light, and the natural magics. It didn’t bother her that they weren’t among the most powerful; her determination would make up for that.
Description: Rory is a bright, passionate young witch, and always has fire in her eyes. She inherited her Father’s dark skin and eyes along with his Irish willpower, but her Mother’s beautiful smile and open mind have kept her well-balanced. She has unruly hair, tightly curled one day and loosely frizzy the next. Her parents are both tall, but she has yet to show any particular height, standing at a petite four feet. Rory has a deep love for nature and creatures and can often be found with fur on her sleeves and dirt on her knees. She has a rolling Irish accent and doesn’t hesitate to speak. She talks fast and breathless when she’s excited, slow and absent when she’s thinking, and gently to animals and plants.
Background: Rory is ambitious and imaginative. She dreams big and knows how she’s going to achieve those dreams. Having spent her formative years as an only child, she quickly learned to get along on her own. That isn’t to say that she is anti-social; she is deeply caring and affectionate toward nearly everyone. She is an extravert but also enjoys time alone, tending to a new flower or sketching a bird. Rory is not a big-picture person; she focuses in on details and projects and develops “tunnel-vision” easily. This has helped her achieve many goals, but means that other things often get neglected in the meantime. She has a sunny personality and is cheerfully ambitious; firm and prodigious in her pursuit of her desires, but unwilling to let setbacks keep her down (or harm others in her quests). She can be very naive and doesn’t know much about the unkindness in the world yet. Her parents married young but only stayed married for a few years. They have been divorced since she was small, her Father living in Ireland and her Mother in England. She lives with her father but loves both her parents fiercely. Happily, their relationship is amicable and they have mastered the art of putting their children first. Rory has one younger half-sister; a four-year-old named Alyssa. They don’t spend much time together, but Rory is eager to see her more often now that she will be in England. She is both inernet-savvy and curious, and is not looking forward to being without Google. Balancing her loyalty to the Muggle and Wizarding worlds is an ongoing process for her. Her dearest dream is to travel the world discovering and cataloging new plants and animals, and she admires both Muggle scientists and Magizoologists.

Pet: Cat
» Name: Juniper
» Gender: Female
» Age: 5 Months
» Appearance:
» Description: Juniper is a slender Calico, with golden eyes and dainty paws. She was one of the many kittens roaming the farmland where Rory lived, and they instantly took a liking to one another. Still a kitten Juniper has bursts of playfulness and energy followed by a need for long naps. Rory takes her on many adventures and is delighted by her companion’s inquisitive nature. Juniper is shy but easily won over by a scratch or a treat, and loves to curl up in a warm lap. She is small and lithe, easily able to climb trees and leap fences.
Other: The Sorting Hat took an extra moment to place Rory. Her hardworking nature and inborn kindness made her a candidate for Hufflepuff. But in the end, her intense drive and ambition, along with her determination landed her in Slytherin house. She has few preconceptions about any of the houses but will undoubtedly form opinions quickly. Rory is anxious to make friends, and wishes for others who share her desire to achieve great things. She has a gift for Charms, Care of Magical Creatures, and Herbology, mainly because she enjoys them. She will have to be persuaded to the benefits of broadening her horizons.

Ji Mei  (jimei) EDWIN


Name: Edwin Charlie Mulligan
Gender: Male
Blood: Half-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: March 12
House: Ravenclaw
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Alder
» Core: Phoenix Feather and Graphorn Skin
» Length: 11 Inches
» Flexibility: Slightly Springy
» Description: Edwin's alder wand connected with him as soon as he opened the fifth box in his search. The wand is a subtle light warm color, straight and the handle is relatively nondescript except for a variety of swirling patters that circle the bottom knob and the top ring just above where his hand would be. It would sometimes seem as if the wand he was given would be beyond his control, with a phoenix feather core that likes to do what it wants and a wood that is unyielding. However, it is loyal to him already and they work together despite their opposite, or at least quite different, personalities. It excels at nonverbal spells and is great with a large range of magic, both offensive spells and defensive spells. As mentioned before, his wand has a personality that maybe not completely opposite, but certainly is different and sometimes it makes it difficult for Edwin to perform spells.
Appearance:
Description: Edwin is average on all accounts. He stands at around four feet and six inches, and weighs around eighty-five pounds. His hair is dark and his eyes are a dark brown. Edwin isn't overly athletic, preferring to stay inside reading, but he is still capable of doing sports. In fact, if he tried, he probably could be a pretty good swimmer or runner. Most of the time, Edwin likes to stay to himself, but that's because he's not really sure how to get to know people. He is kind and warmhearted, just, and thoughtful, though his stubbornness can kick in at times. Unlike some people are led to believe, Edwin believes he has an average intelligence, but it's just that he sees the world differently. This different viewpoint he has sometimes makes him look oblivious, awkward, or shy, and it's his goal to find a way to reach out to others.
Background: Edwin's father left his mother when he was young, then when he was five, his mother was diagnosed with cancer. She died two years later. Now he's being taken care of by his grandfather on his mother's side. Edwin is generally a happy child, which hides this more sad story of his. His grandfather was a wizard and so it was like any normal family when he received his letter.
Relations:
» Antonius Laurence Mulligan - Grandfather; 82; Pure-Blood; Retired Veteran
» Seraphina Anne Mulligan - Mother; 30; Pure-Blood; Deceased
Pet: Turtle
» Name: Ludwig
» Gender: Male
» Age: 3 Weeks
» Appearance:
» Description: Ludwig is a small little guy that can fit in Edwin's palm, but shows quite a lot of affection already. The turtle likes to travel in Edwin's breast pocket, hidden in his robes. His shell is a light brown color with dark lines tracing patterns on it, making him blend in quite easily if he ever roams the cobbled floors.
Other: Edwin would like to become a famous author someday and sometimes can be heard mumbling to himself as he scratches away in a notebook. Usually he can be found in quiet places, though he has a great ability to tune out the noises surrounding him.

tori | 52 comments DANIKA


Name: Danika Rose Trejada
Gender: Female
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: June 30
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Aspen
» Core: Phoenix Feather
» Length: 13 3/4 Inches
» Flexibility: Quite Rigid
» Description: Danika headed into the old, musty shop with her head full of curls held high. She'd been awaiting this moment since she'd been old enough to dream and dare, and now it was finally upon her. Danika, with her rather showy presence, immediately attracted the attention of Mr. Ollivander, and, a wand in hand, approached the fiery eleven year old. They exchanged pleasantries, and, grinning, he held out the long instrument. Exhaling the butterflies that had begun to swarm in her belly, she carefully wrapped her fingers around the slim wand, the handle engraved with the pattern of shooting stars. And the deal was sealed. A shower of sparks rained from the slightly darker tip of the wand, covering the floor with what looked like tiny constellations. Danika smiled and laughed, joy bursting within her. This particular wand was drawn to Danika for her strong-mindedness and determination, qualities the aspen wood shares. The aspen wood also suggests that this would make a fine dueling wand, and those suited for it are revolutionists. The phoenix feather core, the rarest of the three main core type, chose Danika for independence from others, an aspect the phoenix core loves in their owner.
Appearance:
Description: Danika is, quite simply, a confident young girl who isn't afraid to express her opinions. She is one who is very set in her ways, and doesn't get put off by others if they don't disagree with her views. Danika can also be a bit narcissistic at times, feeling she is the only who matters. She also loves to be center of attention. Ambitious is another way to describe this girl, and she only dreams of her success. Danika also never doubts her ability to conquer, and is almost willing to do whatever it takes to make sure she overcomes her goals. She strives for greatness, and never sells her self short. Speaking of short, Danika is rather small in size, barely four-foot eight, which, as her mother says, is why she is so feisty. "Dynamite comes in small packages, Danika. And you're the smallest pack I've ever seen!" She is also outdoorsy and constantly stays on her feet. Add that with her fast metabolism, and you have a rather slender young girl. Danika's wild-side has nothing on her hair, though. Her thick curls are constantly escaping any kind of hair-tie or clip you can find. Thus, her dark brown locks are always sticking out around her face and falling into her chocolate brown eyes.
Background: Danika Rose Trejada was born in São Paulo, Brazil a few years after her parents met and married. They raised Danika to always speak her mind and to always work hard to achieve her goals. She was a bright and curious child, constantly asking questions of how this and that worked. She was in love with this world of mystery around her. Danika was told stories of Muggles, stories that would her laughing until tears came into her eyes. She couldn't believe how one race of people were all so... ignorant. How was it possible they didn't notice anything? She was also told of Hogwarts, one of the greatest wizarding schools, and the school at which her parents had met. Danika grew up fast, her mind focused on only one thing: magic. After hearing so many stories and after watching her parents perform the incredible acts, she could hardly wait. And now that her eleventh birthday has arrived, she can hardly contain her excitement. Danika knows she will love Hogwarts no matter what because it is the place where she will discover who she truly is.

Pet:
» Name: Mystic (Miz)
» Gender: Male
» Age: 1
» Appearance:
» Description: Miz, much like his owner, is determined, confident in his ability, and fearing nothing (except maybe cats...). He is an intelligent owl, and very watchful; one that can sense arousing danger and knows when to flee, or when to fight. Miz is also very energetic and enjoys flying at all hours of the day—and night. But he also knows when to be collected and when to be resting on Danika's shoulder, which he always does in a protective manner. Loyal and true are other word to describe this majestic and wise creature. Miz, being a snowy owl, is all grays and whites, even his large and round eyes are gray in their hue. He is also rather tall, standing at a height of twenty-eight inches, and has a broad wingspan of fifty-one inches. Miz, quite simply put, is big in both appearance and personality.
Other: Danika's parents married on May second, the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts.

Jasmine | ModernScrolls (modernscrolls) JOSEPH


Name: Joseph Christopher Kennedy
Gender: Male
Blood: Pure-Blood
Age: 11
» Birthday: February 14
House: Slytherin
» Year: 1
» Quidditch: N/A
» Position: Student
Wand:
» Wood: Willow
» Core: Dragon Heartstring and Powdered Clabbert Horn
» Length: 10 1/2 Inches
» Flexibility: Supple
» Description: When Joseph walked into Ollivanders he wasn't excited as most kids were – it had been a hard enough day and he just wanted it to be over. Mr. Ollivander smiled as they walked through the door, his eyes on Joseph. He went on about the process Joseph's mother and father had went through when they had gotten their first wands as he pulled down various wands from different shelves, frowning slightly as one after the other just wasn't right. "I do like a good challenge," he had remarked, smiling at Joseph and continuing the search. Ollivander picked up one wand in particular and looked curiously at Joseph, the look on his face almost uncertain. He decided to give it a try and the moment Joseph grasped it a bright green light flooded the room and for the first time that day Joseph's lips curved up into a smile. "Willow," Mr. Ollivander had said, a curious smile playing on his lips. "An uncommon wood most drawn to those with insecurities that they hide." At this point he raised an eyebrow at Joseph before continuing. "They select people with great potential, Mr. Joseph. Dragon heartstring, a very powerful core no doubt, but paired with Powdered Clabbert Horn, now that's interesting. Found in the wands of those with a particular affinity for Divination, as well as Defense Against the Dark Arts. Which one will it be, Mr. Joseph?" he asked, still smiling. "Defense Against the Dark Arts, of course," his father had replied in a firm voice. "Divination is nonsense." Joseph's father had paid for the wand and out of the shop they had walked, Joseph staring down in fascination at his new wand, a small smile still playing on his lips.
Appearance:
Description: Joseph is tall for his age, although he's not wiry. He's lean and it can be seen already that he has an athletic build. He has dark brown hair that he prefers to keep short and clear blue eyes. His lips full and pink, though they almost always seem to be set in a permanent scowl. Getting Joseph to smile is a rare but extraordinary feat. He's a quiet guy and is a bit of a loner mainly due to the fact that he doesn't know when to hold his tongue. He often times will tell you exactly what is on his mind whether you like it or not. When he speaks he usually has a flat voice and more often than not is extremely sarcastic. When he's happy his voice will brighten, and when talking to someone whom he cares deeply for, you'll find that his voice gets extremely soft and sweet. Often times he acts almost cocky and extremely sure of himself, but in reality he's ridiculously insecure. His history holds him back and he's broken, although he'll make sure it doesn't show.
Background: Joseph grew up in a less than loving home where his father abused him and his mother. Despite the pain they endured, his mother was unwilling to leave his father, and he had nowhere to run to. Since his dad held a high position he knew that no one would believe him even if he said something, and he knew that his father would come up with an excuse for the bruises. The abuse is still going on, although less now on his mother and more on him. He is thrilled to be going to Hogwarts, both because he can't wait to learn magic, and because it will take him away from his abusive home.
Relations:
» Marie Antoinette Kennedy - Mother; 41; Pure-Blood; Slytherin
» Darius Kennedy - Father; 40; Pure-Blood; Slytherin; Works as an Auror at the Ministry of Magic
Pet: Owl
» Name: Bane
» Gender: Male
» Age: 1
» Appearance:
» Description: Bane is a somewhat small yet powerful bird, a trait that Joseph admired from the start. He has dark black feathers with patches of russet colored feathers as well. Bane loves Joseph and is an extremely loyal and loving bird, but he is also a very stubborn bird, a trait he most likely got from Joseph himself. Bane is very weary of people he does not know and may try to peck at people who try to use him, but he is very friendly around other owls.
Other: Joseph struggles with depression, although no one around him would ever guess it, and that often times affects his ability to socialize. He has trust issues and almost never lets anyone in. Anyone who manages to get close to him is a very special person indeed.
