Name Dena Maxime LesageAge 17 (turns 18 December 22nd)Year SeventhBlood Muggles and Muggle-borns do dot along her family tree occasionally, but both of her parents are wizards. Mainly pure.Patronus Unknown - to be announcedAppearance The most notable thing of Dena’s physique is the cool grace in which she handles her height—5’10”—and statuesque physique. She has only just grown into this: most will remember her as a tall and awkward-looking child. The curves she has, the long legs and conventional, easy beauty of her face make her appear much older than her true age. She’s quick to show her dimples with a smile. Her slanted eyes are a pale green, the striking bone structure of her nose, jawline and cheekbones a nod to her partly Native American blood. Thick chocolate-coloured hair is gathered into a loose side-braid when working, otherwise Dena leaves it down in its half-curled mass.[image error]Personality Some can think of Dena as a warm, outgoing person, and yet others think of her as shrewd and introverted, one who prefers spending time with her music or book rather than with people. A true pseudo-extrovert, Dena is not afraid of trying new (or dangerous things). She’s an artist with ambitious hopes and desires and a way of thinking that can make those desires happen. While she does like the occasional gossip it irks her severely when people twist a story to make it seem more interesting. She’s curious to get to know the deeper side of people. Very much in tune to nature and she has a soft spot for the ancient aboriginal prayers. History Daughter to a Quebecoise witch and descendant of a powerful Cree shaman (her great-grandfather), Dena grew up in a Cree community by Fort George in Ontario, Canada. She lived there with her parents and grandparents on her father’s side until she was six years old, then was whisked off to live in Chicago with her mother after her parents separated, though she visits her father and his new wife in the settlement. She is strictly middle-class and well-behaved, thanks to her family, who believe that first impressions are the most important. It’ll take more than a first impression, however, to get to know Dena well. Dena is a new transfer to Hogwarts from an American school of wizardry. Reasons for her sudden move are not known.Wand 9-inch ash wand with a core of Augurey feather. This explains her keen curiousity of certain musical charms—she’s been known to have already invented quite a few and she keeps any new discoveries in a flimsy little leather-bound notebook.Pet A midnight-coloured creature that Dena has had since leaving the reserve, Cat is exactly what she named it: a sleek-furred cat. OtherDena tends to reveal little about herself, leading to some speculation that she has something to hide—or maybe it’s just part of her elusive, pseudo-outgoing nature. Her love of music and culture was given to her by her mother, Sylvie-Anne, and her storytelling talent by her grandfather. She is fluent in French though prefers English. When not studying or wandering the grounds, she can be found giving the first-years a very good story (inspired by Cree legends), often accompanied by one of her many musical instruments—though for this she prefers her cherry-red classical guitar. Though she’s dated around a bit, but never really got into a relationship that didn’t bore her easily. She finds that she doesn’t connect very well with people in general, so she hasn’t had a best friend or steady boyfriend, though Dena gets along with most everyone well.
Name Marcelina Azucena Espinoza GranadosMore commonly known as MarcelinaYear SixAppearance Marcelina is somewhat pretty, with greenish-blue large eyes and elegant, if not hawk-like (or pinched, as some point out) feautures. She has a very slight tan and long, usually picked up dark brown hair. She is very tall, standing at 5' 9". She is lithe and athletic, not to mention resistant. Personality and History Marcelina is extremely clever and shrewd; gentle and kind to some, cold and sharp to others. It's all according to what Marcelina needs. She sees others as to be manipulated, tools in her arsenal, though there are a few people she considers worthy of notice. Marcelina's standards do not include blood, however. She's as ambivalent to Muggle-borns as she is to pure-bloods. Marcelina's standards are cleverness, of course, and family feats; but mainly the first. Marcelina basically fills her own standards, with the Granados family being a notorious Wizard family in Spain, her grandfather's status as a Warlock, and her intelligence outstanding. However, she secretly values bravery out of anything else, which she wants and lacks. Which is why she is not a Gryffindor.Her father is in the English Ministry of Magic, and her mother collects rare artifacts and sells them privately. She is distantly related to Squib composer Enrique Granados (a renowned musician) and has thus gotten the family gift of music, which has remained among her mother's family. She is a gifted violinist, and her violin has been in the family for ages. Even though this violin was filched by a Muggle, it was rescued by Marcelina's mother when she was a young witch. Her life was lived in a small Wizard community in Sevilla, but her father insisted she was sent to Hogwarts when she became eleven. Thus she has traveled to England more than once in her childhood. Her wand was made by a Spanish wandmaker, too. Her mother didn't trust Ollivander enough. Blood If it hadn't been for some Muggles from her father's side of the family (and her tolerance to them), Marcelina would have entered Slytherin. She is mainly pure-blooded, but still related to some Muggles, which is why she fills into a half-blood cathegory. Wand 13 1/4 inches maple, phoenix tail feather core, very light and willowy. Useful for offensive spells.Patronus A peacock.Pet A kingfisher, oddly enough, who brings her the mail faithfully, by the name of Indigo.[image error]Other Marcelina excells at Transfiguration and Defense Against the Dark Arts, but she has no desire to be an auror.RelationshipsLillian Middleton: An old acquaintance. The Espinoza family is very prominent in Pureblood English events, thus the connection.
