Ahhhh… I am so ready for tonight’s dinner, after such a difficult day of classes. you think to yourself, as you walk quickly out of your Defense Against the Dark Arts class. I mean, today was fun and all… I still can’t believe we got to see a Hippogriff in Care of Magical Creatures! I just need a break from all the chaos. As you enter the Great Hall, you never cease to be amazed by the sight before you. Wow… look at all that chicken! That’s definitely what I need right now! As you run quickly to your friends, you feel your mouth begin to water in anticipation of the amazing food awaiting you.

Character Name:
Lily Reberteen

Character appearance:
Lily has piercing blue eyes and long black hair. She usually ties her hair back into a ponytail but will occasionally plait her hair or simply have it cascading down her back. She often has a pale complexion as the sun rarely reaches her. This only brings out the black eyeliner and mascara she so often sports. Lily always wears dark clothes - black jeans, black boots and a black hoodie. Underneath the hoodie is a colourful flannel. There is a faint birthmark under her jawline. Scars of an unknown origin are upon her hands and knees, maybe from times of falling down as a child. At 5"6 and a slim/fit build, Lily walks with a purpose.

Character personality:
Lily is headstrong and defiant which can sometimes get her into trouble when she doesn't want to follow the rules. However, the professors still appreciate her in their classes for she has remarkable talent. Quite intelligent, she can see through people - or at least it appears that way to others. Lily has great intuition and can often tell what other people are thinking. This makes her quite distrustful of people and she is unwilling to share information about herself to strangers. It takes a lot of work and encouragement to get her to open up as she is a very private person. Lily would be described as unusual and strange by people because they do not understand her. Lily, however, does not care about what other people think of her, and she would describe herself as complex - not even herself can understand what is going off inside.

Character hobbies:
Lily in her spare time enjoys practising magic and enhancing her abilities. She doesn't do it to get ahead in classes, but simply because enhancing her abilities makes her feel more powerful. She particularly enjoys potions, but also has a soft spot for creatures. Lily can be often seen lurking around the Great Lake talking to the Squid. Besides that, she loves nothing more than to hang with her friends and have a good time. She is often trading Famous Wizarding Cards with her friends.

- How does your character see him/herself?
Lily sees herself as a survivor because she has been through difficult periods in life. She knows she is strong and capable of great things. Unfortunately, she has a tendency to procrastinate and that frequently gets her annoyed at herself.

- What is one ambition that your character has?
Lily would love to work in the Department of Mysteries at the Ministry of Magic. Being a naturally secretive person, the role of Unspeakable would come naturally to her. She intends to work hard at her lessons in the hopes of achieving this dream.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?
Lily would like to change her outlook on life. She stresses and worries too much and this can sometimes make life seem not what it's cracked up to be. By changing her outlook, Lily believes she will also change her life.

- What motivates your character?
Lily does not enjoy feeling small, nor does she enjoy seeing others feel small. By practising her magic daily, she can make sure she never feels small again. She also wants to use her magic to defend and protect people. Injustice and discrimination motivate her to become stronger.

- What frightens your character?
Lily has been hurt in the past by nasty people. Nothing would frighten her more than to see these people today. If they were to gloat at her and boast about how they hurt her, it would make her angry but also would humiliate her and make feel very small.

Character Name: Flynt Hiddlestorm

Character appearance: (eye color, height, skin color) This pale young man of asian origin and of average height wears jeans whenever he can, with a black plain shirt that highlights his combed black hair. His acne scarred face presents a welcoming smile for all, but hides a threatening glare for those who betray his trust and threaten him. His black entrancing eyes presents a warm appeal to those who look at him, even if his scarred face bothers him the most. His gruff voice greets his friends with a thick accent, as his first language is Korean.

Character personality: Flynt is patient and hardworking. As he's muggleborn, his parents has high standards for his tests and as such, do not tolerate him neglacting his studies. That however builds a barrier for some, as he spends most of his time in the library, making sure he's always at the top of his class. However, the friends he met in ravenclaw understand him and supports him whenever the need appears. For him, studies are what matters most, as it was how he was raised as a kid, but this seemingly cold attitude hides a fearsome raven that welcomes all and rejects none.

Character hobbies: Flynt spends most of his time studying. He does like however to spend time in hogmeades with his fellow ravenclaws drinking butterbeer and chatting. As you can see, he is by no means shy, but the fact that he always spends his time reading and studying makes the other students avoid him. Which Flynt regrets as he likes to chat with others, espicially if it's about their studies.

Please answer the following questions about your character in as much detail as possible (at minimum 3 sentences each). Bullet point answers will not be accepted for these questions.

- How does your character see him/herself?
Flynt sees himself as a teenager that isn't intelligent enough and strong enough to please his parents. He also sees himself as a wizard that doesn't deserver his friends, and will then do everything in his power to protect them.

- What is one ambition that your character has?
Flynt always needs to be the top of his class and yearns to master all kind of spells. Some believe he works so hard for the prestige or the money, but the real answer would be to please and satisfy his parent's demands. He, himself only cares about that and the protection fo his dear friends that saw through his cold demeanor.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?
As said earlier, Flynt protects hiw own, but there isn't that many, because of the way he spends his time. And so, if he could change something, it would be the way others sees him, so he can have more people that speaks to him, even though he is by no means shy.

- What motivates your character?
The need to please his parents conflicts with his desire to make and talk with friends. But he somehows relinquished that goal, and spends his time reading. As he studies only for his parent's, he doesn't know what kind of carrer he wants to pursue, and takes all the classes available to open his options.

- What frightens your character?
Surprisingly, what frightens him most is the sea. As he is unable to calculate what is underneath, he prefers to stay at bay. Another fact that may come as a surprise to others, is that he hates bugs. Finally, he is scared to lose those few friends he has, and will protect them with all of his might

Character Name:
Jasper Roberts

Character appearance: (eye color, height, skin color) Please also include a few sentences on your character’s day to day appearance. This can include information such as what style clothing your character prefers to wear and whether or not your character has any distinguishing features (e.g., birthmarks, scars).
Jasper has jet-black hair, cut into a number six, and bright green eyes. His face and body display his true identity to anyone who can recognise the signs of Lycanthropy. For years, his wolf form attacked itself, so he was left with scars all over. When not in school uniform, Jasper prefers to wear baggy jeans and a short-sleeved t-shirt.

Character personality: Your character's qualities and flaws, how your character reacts to certain situations, mannerisms.
Jasper is extremely intelligent, constantly strives for better and continues to look for ways to expand his already in-depth knowledge. He is an excellent student and consistently receives Outstanding grades. Growing up on the other side of the world has taught him a lot about wandless magic; the wand was a European invention. In time, he’ll perform better magic without the use of a wand. His looks contribute a lot to his self-loathing nature and he has been known to take it too far.

Roberts would much prefer to curl up in front of the fire to draw or read although there are days when his adventurous spirit comes out to play. Time and time again, the werewolf proves that he’s wise beyond his years but doesn’t boast and isn’t arrogant about it. At certain moments in his life, Jasper has proven that he has a strong character and is calm under pressure. He is loyal and is willing to go the extra mile for those he cares for; even face death for his loved ones. He is quite independent, especially since transferring to Hogwarts, and has an instinct to fight for what’s right.

The werewolf is a fantastic team player and has coped very well with hardship from a young age; a trait that will follow him through life. Although he is observant and quiet most of the time, the werewolf can be harsh when he loses his temper. The young man also uses teasing to let go of his anger when he can’t use physical means to vent his frustration. His bravery comes from somewhere deep inside of him, but he isn’t foolish and knows when to be serious.

While Jasper has a big heart, his ambition to be the best that he can be means that he can seem power hungry. There are times when he gives in to this weakness and hates himself for it. The perceptive werewolf doesn’t hold grudges but is quite stubborn. Others can change his mind, but it will take quite a while; he doesn’t sway from his pedestal very often, and even then it takes someone who he cares about very dearly to change his mind.

Character hobbies: Please write a few sentences describing your character’s hobbies.
Jasper isn’t the adventurous type and would much prefer to curl up in front of the fire to draw or read. There have been times, however, when he’s enjoyed long walks in nature. These are especially nice as the full moon draws closer as it helps him channel his feelings of self-hatred. Recently, he played Quidditch for the first time and is possibly looking to continue the sport even after he graduates and is in employment.

Please answer the following questions about your character in as much detail as possible (at minimum 3 sentences each). Bullet point answers will not be accepted for these questions.

- How does your character see him/herself?
Jasper has always hated his appearance. Every time he sees himself in the mirror, he looks for the scars and the ugliness inside of him rather than the positives. There are times where he believes he doesn’t deserve to live and is deeply ashamed of who he is. Although he knows his personality more than makes up for his looks, his brain tricks him into believing that no one will ever see him for who he truly is and he despises himself for thinking that way.

- What is one ambition that your character has?
Above all else, Jasper wants to be a Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. His Auror parents were killed during a Death Eater raid and the young man has always hated the Dark Arts. He is aware of the stigma surrounding werewolves and wants to prove that Lycanthropes can be as accomplished as those without the infliction.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?
Jasper would love to rid himself of his self-loathing attitude. He knows that his parents wouldn’t have continued their struggles if live wasn’t worth living, but on his dark days he is so down and sour that he wonders why people continue to want to be around him. He has tried all that he can think of to shake this feeling but would give anything to be able to just flick a switch and be done with it.

- What motivates your character?
Jasper’s overall ambition to be a professor is what motivates him. Living all of his life with Lycanthropy and the stigma surrounding it has taught him that nothing ever comes easy in this life. He is constantly striving for perfection and his one goal in life is what keeps him going, especially when he feels nothing else is going right for him.

- What frightens your character?
The thought of losing those closest to him is what frightens Jasper, although he would never admit it to anyone. He has already been through losing his parents and sees the dead bodies of those he loves whenever he is faced by a Boggart. The last thing he wants is for someone else to die, particularly when he already blames himself for so much.

Character Name:
Kenji McKeen

Character appearance:
-Blue eyes
-Black hair
-Pasty skin, perpetual sunburn
-5’6” tall
-Kenji is built like a rock. He has a square jaw, square shoulders, and a boxy head only emphasized by his buzzed haircut. He thinks the buzz-cut will encourage his hair to grow out of his chin instead, but has yet to grow a single facial hair despite his near-desperate desire for a beard. He has what is sometimes known as "baby face.”
-Kenji never thinks much about the way he dresses. The school uniform works just fine for him, but he never remembers to tuck in his shirt or how to tie his tie. He gets the clothes on in the morning, and he considers that accomplishment enough.

Character personality:
Born to poor but intensely ambitious "pureblood" parents, his family never understood how Kenji could have acquired such a mellow and relaxed approach to life. He doesn’t mind working hard, but rarely puts any pressure on himself to do so, and failed nearly all his first year exams because of it. To his classmates, Kenji often comes across as stoic and aloof, but he is actually terribly shy. Socially anxious, Kenji would often prefer to sit in awkward silence rather than start a conversation with someone he doesn't know.

Character hobbies:
Kenji likes all aspects of Quidditch-- the teammates, the training, the rush that he gets during a big match— but he doesn’t want it to become a career. He doesn’t love lessons but if he had to pick one, his favorite school subject would be Astronomy. He loves drawing and his notes tend to contain more doodles than words. In his free time, he swims in the lake and reads Muggle fantasy novels, the trashier the better. He likes to think about how non-magical people imagine magic, and wonder about all of his own misconceptions about the world. He prefers to be outside as much as possible.

- How does your character see him/herself?
Kenji generally sees himself as a leaf on the wind, going wherever life (and his parents) push him. He’s not apathetic, but he does feel that his destiny will find him on its own, and to seek it is pointless. He sees himself as a part of the world as it exists now, not a force for change upon it.

- What is one ambition that your character has?
One day Kenji hopes to write a Muggle fantasy novel about wizards that in no way resemble the magic he experiences every day of his real life. He plans to do so under a pseudonym, because he doubts his parents would approve. He would also like to figure out a way to communicate with the Giant Squid.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?
Kenji would like his parents to let him figure things out for himself, instead of pushing him to find his “passion.” They don’t mind what it is, as long as he finds something, but Kenji doesn’t feel ready to commit to anything in particular yet. His older sister, currently in Auror training, tries to give him some buffer with his parents as best she can, but since she graduated, the physical distance between them has made it harder— and it doesn’t help that she herself doesn’t really ‘get’ him either.

- What motivates your character?
Despite the stress they cause him, Kenji really does love his family and would like to eventually win their approval in his own way. He seeks connection with nature and with the earth as a whole. Kenji’s main goal is to reconcile his own drifter’s nature with the intensity of his family’s ambitions, and to find a place in the world where he can stay connected to both those sides of himself. He is also intensely motivated by his own fears, as described below.

- What frightens your character?
Kenji is mildly claustrophobic. He fears both small spaces and crowds of people too big for the space they are in. More existentially, he is afraid that when he finally finds his destiny, he won’t recognize it. Even worse, Kenji fears losing his connection to his family simply due to his own inability to find his passions. No matter how much they assure him that they love him no matter what, he can’t shake his own insecurity that his dreams will not align with their hopes for him.

Character Name:

Octavia Bloom

Character appearance:

Eye Colour:

Violet

Hair Colour:

Black as a Ravens Wing

Height:

5’ 4”

Skin Colour:

Pale and Interesting end of the Spectrum

Character Appearance:

Further Information:

With dark hair, shades of violet eyes and pale skin, Octavia looks striking, her dark lashes and full red lips meant that she didn’t need much makeup, a smile was all that she really needed to enhance her natural beauty, however it was rarely forthcoming as Octavia disliked the gap in her front teeth and was shy and diffident. She wore her hair tied back most of the time to keep it neat, but enjoyed letting her hair down as it acted as cover to her shyness along with her bowed her head. Octavia liked the anonymity of the school uniform, she had little interest in fashion and usually wore jeans, tees, and hoodies with sneakers. Whenever she had to dress formally, it was a struggle for her to wear a dress and accept that she was quite beautiful.

Character personality: Your character's qualities and flaws, how your character reacts to certain situations, mannerisms.

Octavia was born into a family of witches and wizards that stretched back hundreds of years, with Irish, Scottish, and English heritage. Octavia was, as her name suggests the eighth child and fourth daughter of Septimus and Terza Bloom. A shy and inward looking child she is overshadowed by her elder siblings, preferring to blend into the background rather than stand out, however she is very talented at Herbology and loves to spend most of her time pottering about the family garden and greenhouse where she feels most relaxed. Octavia rarely looks up and spends most of her time bumping into things and apologising in a juddering manner which makes other people laugh at her. She is intelligent, but prefers to keep it hidden, one of her favorite answers is, ” I don’t know.” which simply isn’t true, she just prefers not to engage with others as she believes that they will not value her opinion, this comes from having brilliant brothers and sisters who dismiss her talents in Herbology as less than useless and certainly not as glamorous as Spells, Potions and Curses. Her love of Quidditch and ability at the game is viewed with amusement by all her relatives as it is seen as a game for the masses and not something the Bloom family take much notice of. Octavia is kind and thoughtful, but annoyingly believes that others will, magically, see how she is without her showing them her personality or thoughts, this leads to a lot of introspection and time alone.



Character hobbies: Please write a few sentences describing your character’s hobbies.

Apart from a Herbology, Octavia enjoys Quidditch, this is where she comes alive. Flying high is exhilarating and gives her a freedom she doesn’t feel on terra firma. A good player she is currently Ravenclaw Keeper and wants to try for position of Seeker. Octavia also enjoys Dueling, but isn’t very strong on Hexes and Curses. She also enjoys listening to WWW and either Magic or Muggle Baking.

Please answer the following questions about your character in as much detail as possible (at minimum 3 sentences each). Bullet point answers will not be accepted for these questions.

- How does your character see him/herself?

Octavia doesn’t seem to fit in with her Uber achieving family whose accomplishments are many and legendary, she is shy, inward looking and feels a fraud. She gets on with her youngest brother, Decimus, who is sweet and kind. She has few friends, Fiona, a Muggle born Witch and Alice, whose family are interrelated with her own, Octavia enjoys chatting and spending time together with them. Socially awkward, Octavia shuns large groups whenever she can, and spends her life avoiding the glances of others. Octavia hears her mother say, ”It’s just a phase.” to explain her daughters lack of social graces, but Octavia knows that this is who she is and it will never change, maybe she will learn to live with herself better as she gets older, but the Octavia you see now, is the Octavia she will always be.

- What is one ambition that your character has?

Although shy and socially awkward, Octavia comes alive when playing Quidditch. She is a good and valued member of the Ravenclaw team, her immediate ambition is to tryout and get the position of Seeker. For the future she would like to make it her career, inspired as she is by past Hogwarts players such as Katie Bell, Angelina Johnson, Alicia Spinnet and Ginny Weasley. This driving ambition is at odds with her personality, but she she is a fierce and determined player, and Madam Hooch has promised to take her to see the Holyhead Harpies in action next season and meet with the players as a treat. Octavia would dearly love to play for her favorite team when she leaves Hogwarts.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?

Octavia knows herself well, she is shy and prefers her own company or being with her two friends, however, she can see that Fiona and Alice have other friends and interests and they often go to music festivals and concerts and clubs and have an easy way of mixing and speaking with others that she lacks. Octavia would really like to change this inability, and to simply sit and talk with others who she doesn’t know and enjoy it. At present it is her worst nightmare as she struggles with knowing what to say, how to act, or if people would even like her. She refuses offers of nights out as she over imagines what will happen in the evening, rather than just going out and enjoying herself.


- What motivates your character?

Octavia is motivated by her family’s high achieving status more than she realises, she sees their successes on a daily basis and although she cannot compete with them on an academic level, she has her own abilities in Herbology and Quidditch, which her Professor’s have said are ‘Outstanding’. This pleases and placates her parents, not so much her siblings, and therefore makes Octavia strive for greater recognition in these two diverse areas of her life.


- What frightens your character?

Octavia fears being left behind due to her shyness. She realises that she must push herself forward with her dream of being a professional Quidditch player no matter what difficulties she may encounter. Her lack of success in other areas means that she is pinning all her hopes on one area of her life, Quidditch. She is aware that there are many talented players out there and if she doesn’t succeed at her one passion in life she will simply fade into obscurity, a footnote in the achievements of her family’s long and illustrious dynasty.

Character Name: Darby Finn

Character appearance: (eye color, height, skin color) Please also include a few sentences on your character’s day to day appearance. This can include information such as what style clothing your character prefers to wear and whether or not your character has any distinguishing features (e.g., birthmarks, scars).
Darby is about 5'8" tall with fair skin. She has bright blue-green eyes and dark red hair to her shoulders that is straight on days when the weather is nice but wavy when it rains. She likes to wear her hair up, as the feeling of her hair on her neck annoys her at times. She has a small scar that cuts through her right eyebrow that she received when she fell off her horse as a child. She tends to stick to dark and neutral color clothing, such as brown, black, and grey and hates wearing dresses. She's most comfortable in a pair of jeans and always wears a tank top, even under other shirts and jackets, as the feeling of sleeves is restricting to her and having a tank top underneath makes her more comfortable. She usually has on a pair of brown or black boots.

*You may provide a faceclaim for your character. However, details not immediately apparent in the image should also be described. These details could include, but are not limited to: scars, birthmarks, tattoos, and your character's height/weight.

Character personality: Your character's qualities and flaws, how your character reacts to certain situations, mannerisms.
Darby is a very quiet, kind girl. She is slow to anger and quick to forgive. She makes friends very easily, but she has just a few very close friends that she spends all of her time with. She dislikes confrontation and will try to avoid it, but her natural kindness and charisma tends to cause people to remain calm when they're around her.

Character hobbies: Please write a few sentences describing your character’s hobbies.
Darby's favorite thing to do is spend time with her animals. She spends hours riding her horse, Argo, with her dog, Drake, sometimes running alongside. When not outside, she loves to curl up in her favorite window seat next to the fireplace in her family's library. She also loves spending time with her family, especially playing Quidditch with her two older brothers. When they aren't around, she enjoys having friends over to play, and will host the occasional sleepover.

Please answer the following questions about your character in as much detail as possible (at minimum 3 sentences each). Bullet point answers will not be accepted for these questions.

- How does your character see him/herself?
Darby sees herself as ambitious, like the rest of her family. Though well-loved by many, she is always striving to be kinder and more generous. She also is extremely focused and goal-oriented.

- What is one ambition that your character has?
Her biggest ambition is to graduate from Hogwarts at the top of her class. She then hopes to get a job at the Ministry of Magic, preferably in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, like her father. Her goal is to have all of this lead up to one day becoming an auror.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?
Though out of her control, Darby would like to change the amount of time her family spends together. She adores her parents and older brothers, but the ambitious family tends to spend most of their time furthering their individual careers. She insists on birthdays and holidays spent together, but would prefer it if they didn't sometimes seem so rushed.

- What motivates your character?
She is motivated by many things. She is highly motivated by her family's individual accomplishments and hopes to be just as accomplished as they are. Her main motivation is her own extreme ambition and her ability to completely focus on a task until it is complete. Her family also motivates her by celebrating her accomplishments and encouraging her after her failures.

- What frightens your character?
Darby has a very strange fear of heights. She is petrified to even stand on a chair, but that fear is completely non-existent when she's flying on a broom. She also has an irrational fear of spiders. She's not scared of the actual creature, but the way they move is very creepy to her.

Character Name: Margaret Mitchem

Character appearance: Green eyes, Honey-Brown curly hair, fair skin, freckles spread across her nose and cheeks. Always dresses in an elegant mannet, keeps her school robes looking new and clean. Well kept nails, with light pink polish. One dimple shows when she smiles, on her right cheek. Average height, slightly too thin to be considered average, she herself thinks her arms are 'bony'.

Character personality: Can be spoiled at times, very proud and confident, always the first to express her opinion. She is kind in her own way, though she gets embarrassed if recognized for her kindness because she feels it can be seen as a weekness (like she's fragile or naive, just because she's kind).

Character hobbies: She enjoys drawing with pencils, painting with watercolors, and is also an active member of the dueling club. Spells are her strong suite, and she enjoys winning duels and being active, but after that she always goes to relax with her drawings and paintings.

- How does your character see him/herself?
She sees herself as someone who is above certain people, in particular boys who are so messy and loud. Margaret considers herself to be an elegant lady, and though she knows she isn't perfect, she does try very hard to appear so in the eyes of others. She believes she is destined to great things, and can excell at whatever she puts her mind to.

- What is one ambition that your character has?
Margaret wants to make an impact on the wizarding world, she wishes to be recognized and perhaps even famous. However, she hasn't yet found the place in which she wishes to shine. So her main ambition is finiding her path, the way which leads to the future she sees herself having. She's working long and hard thinking about what she wants to do "when she grows up".

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?
Margaret wishes to surround herself with interesting and successful people, but faith hasn't brought any to her during her school year. The main thing in her life she wants to change is the people who surround her, so that she might be surrounded by people who interest her and who might supply her with opportunities which will lead to the future she wants.

- What motivates your character?
Margaret is motivated by her pride and her ambition, as well as by a sense of rightfullness. She feels that she belongs among the high society of the wizarding world, and that she will only be happy once she's reached it. Furthermore, she thinks that she will be able to truly make a change in the world. That is what drives her to work so hard, what gives her that feeling of having her eyes on the goal.

- What frightens your character?
Margaret, though she won't admit it even to herself, is afraid of being totally and completely wrong about herself. In some hidden part of her heart, she fears what might happen if she won't find her calling, won't find the place in which she'll shine and make her mark on the world. If that were to happen, all that she's dreaming of would be impossible, and that notion of having to re-plan her entire life is something too frightening for her to admit even to herself.

Character Name: Alice Rosebud

Character appearance: Alice has dusty rose pink hair that she wears in a bob with a fringe. She has green eyes and a fair complexion. She likes to wear fairly preppy clothes, with lots of sweaters, jumpers and comfortable jeans and sneakers. Alice is 5.3” tall and medium weight. She likes to call herself a bit plump.

Character personality: Alice is very calm and collected, especially in stressful situations. However, this causes her to not be very emotional and can seem like she is standoffish. Alice is also very introverted and likes to spend time by herself.

Character hobbies: Alice loves to read. But she also finds solace in watching her favourite muggle shows while crocheting. She likes to think that she does ‘old people’ things. Other than reading and crocheting, she loves to eat and definitely counts eating as a hobby.

- How does your character see him/herself? Alice sees herself as a loner, but would like to think that she could speak to almost anyone if she had to. She sees herself as fairly plump, but secretly doesn’t mind it because she loves food just a tad too much. Alice also believes she has a fairly good general knowledge but fears deep down that she doesn’t.

- What is one ambition that your character has? Alice really wants to be a prefect one day. Her goal is to do a much homework, practising of spells and being as sweet as possible. She wants to be one of the few prefects that get chosen from Hufflepuff.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life? Alice has always wished that she could have one or two bosom buddies like other people she knows. She gets along with everyone, but doesn’t have many close friends. And having that one or two people she could confide in, is something she really wants to change about her life.

- What motivates your character? Success motivates Alice. She wants to succeed in everything she does in life, whether it is classes, homework or even just making the perfect blanket. Her ultimate success goal is to be a prefect.

- What frightens your character? Alice is terrified of spiders and would prefer to never see one. She is also deeply scared of living an ordinary life where she doesn’t succeed or do anything that is not the norm. She is also afraid of deep water where she can’t see what is at the bottom, so the lake is terrifying to her!

Character name: Adyelya Belle Bey

Character appearance: Icy blue eyes, 5 ft. 5 in., pale skin, dark brown hair. Lya’s style is kind of like casual boho chic. Cute and trendy outfits make up her closet. She’s the kind of girl who doesn’t stick very closely to only one style. But no matter what she is wearing, she always looks fashionable. Lya doesn’t have any scars, at least, not yet...

Character personality: Adyelya’s personality isn’t set in stone; she is still figuring out everything about herself. From what she has discovered, Lya’s a beautiful person, inside and out. She is a sweet and kind girl with a caring soul. She is fiercely loyal to her friends and is quick to help anyone she cares about.

Lya’s not perfect; no one is. She isn’t very confident; she can be very shy and has trouble standing up for herself and others. Lya can be VERY indecisive and it is infuriating to her family. She doesn’t always have an opinion on things as she prefers to stay quiet and observe. This means that she can, normally, be easily persuaded.

Lya has always been very polite and well-mannered. She has a big heart and trusts easily. Lya also tries her very best to avoid confrontation and conflict. Though she is extremely intelligent, creative, and unique, she does not possess the similar Ravenclaw trait, quick-wittedness. However, she still was sorted into Ravenclaw and greatly enjoys the house of the eagles. Adyelya is exceedingly successful at Hogwarts, normally getting top grades on homework, tests,etc. Despite being very clever, she doesn’t treat people any differently if they aren’t as smart.

Character hobbies: Lya loves to read and write. She enjoys spending time with friends. Lya likes to draw, but only sometimes. If she doesn’t want to, she won’t put 100% into her work, and it won’t come out the same. Sometime, when she doesn’t have anything else to do, Lya will sit in her room and just listen to music, sometimes even singing along. Her voice is very gentle and sweet, much like her. She has a lot of talent and potential.

How does your character see him/herself: Adyelya knows that everyone is special in their own unique way, but she is still waiting to discover her “specialness”. She mostly sees herself as a normal person, never thing that she is anymore privileged or better than anyone. Lya is willing to look past almost anything to accept someone.

What is one ambition your character has: Lya’s one goal in life is to make her parents proud. This isn’t as easy as you think though. Her older sister, Athena Rose Bey, is perfect in every possible way. To their parents, Athena can do no wrong, while everything that Lya does is the complete opposite. Lya is willing to continue striving for perfection to make her parents happy.

What is something your character would like to change in his/her life: Lya would absolutely love if her family would just accept her for who she is. She can just imagine coming home one summer to a cozy family dinner, where no one was yelling or pressuring her to do something differently. It’s the thing she dreams for.

What motivates your character: Lya’s motivation lies with her friends. Her friends are what she considers family. They are one of the most important things to her, and she willing to go to great lengths to make them happy.

What frightens yor character: Lya’s scared of many things, some of which are spiders, natural disasters, and death. But what a dementor would show her, that is to say her biggest fear, is being rejected. This makes sense because she craves acceptance so, naturally, the opposite is her fear.

Character Name: Melina Crew

Character appearance: (eye color, height, skin color) Please also include a few sentences on your character’s day to day appearance. This can include information such as what style clothing your character prefers to wear and whether or not your character has any distinguishing features (e.g., birthmarks, scars).

Light brown eyes, with slight pecks of green in them, medium height, somewhat 165 cm tall, dark olive skin tone, would even say that it could be regarded as light brown, with warm skin undertone. Her hair is thick and short, the ends of it barely reaching her shoulders. They're also hectically curly and dark brown in colour, and the girl has a difficult time taming it in the mornings, so she just usually gives up and tries to tie in a semi-presentable bun (which is also a big challenge) (I somewhat imagine her hair structure to be somewhere between 3b and 4a). Melina is lean and doesn't eat much; she also has a scar on her arm that reaches her elbow and is about 5 cm in length and a few dark spots on her skin.

She likes wearing black combat boots which she got as a birthday present from her muggle mother and enjoys wearing t-shirts with various names of muggle groups painted on them.

*You may provide a faceclaim for your character. However, details not immediately apparent in the image should also be described. These details could include, but are not limited to: scars, birthmarks, tattoos, and your character's height/weight.

She also loves to sing and has a deep alto voice.

Character personality: Your character's qualities and flaws, how your character reacts to certain situations, mannerisms.

Melina, being a half-blood witch, enjoys spending time with both her muggle and wizard friends. She is humble, intelligent and very caring: to the point where she might sacrifice her own needs in order for someone else to feel better. Her life and whole existence, if it could be described in one word, would be harmony, as that's the most important thing to her. While being a fairly bright witch she also has a few flaws. She sometimes finds it really hard to stand up to herself and say no to someone, even though she has no problem when it comes to defending others and sometimes she gets stuck in her own little world for too long. She also is very clumsy and slightly irresponsible, and is prone to accidents (the Flying teacher thought it would be best if she stayed away from the Quidditch pitch)


Character hobbies: Please write a few sentences describing your character’s hobbies.

She absolutely loves to sing and has been doing so since her early days. Melina also enjoys volunteering and she and her mother, who is a muggle, have a little family tradition to go and volunteer during Christmas and a few other occasions. She also plays a few other instruments and really likes befriending new people. You would rarely see her in the library as the silence and the focused atmosphere in there unnerves her.

Please answer the following questions about your character in as much detail as possible (at minimum 3 sentences each). Bullet point answers will not be accepted for these questions.

- How does your character see him/herself?

She barely ever stops to look at herself, the reason being that she spends most of her time being occupied with something or someone else. That might be because Melina has slight self-esteem issues and is rather shy. You wouldn't see her wearing any makeup and certainly wouldn't wear anything bright and eye-catching,

- What is one ambition that your character has?

Become a Healer at St. Mungus. She once dreamt of becoming a famous musician, that was, before she got her Hogwarts letter which turned her life apart; after entering Hogwarts and witnessing so many wonderful things magic could do, she opted out to becoming a Healer and has been studying Potions and Herbology really hard. She also has a small wish which she never voices that the blood purists at the school would stop picking on her and laughing at her beloved t-shirts.
- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?

She would like to become more confident and original, rather than choosing to stay old plain boring self. Also to learn to stand up for herself; some could even say that the girl lacks a bit aggression. Melina would really love to become more girly too, and as far as she remembers herself, she's always dreamt of having straight, long, silky hair.

- What motivates your character?

Writing letters to her mother always puts a smile on her face and she would do anything to make her mother proud. Her mom also always wished that her daughter would become a doctor too, so the choice of her daughter to become a healer really makes her happy and proud. She also gets motivation from visiting the Hospital Wing in Hogwarts and chatting with Madam Pomfrey, who sometimes teaches her a thing or two about healing magic.

- What frightens your character?

Melina is terribly afraid of death, no matter whose and in what from, everything related to death terrifies her. She once saw a person die in from of her eyes when she was 7 years old and since then she's been terrified of death. She hope that this changes when she becomes a healer and learns how to actually help those who are injured or ill.

Character Name: Daniel "Dani" White

Character appearance: Dani is rather short for his age, with very long auburn hair that curls at the very ends. He's got dark brown eyes and pale skin, with a variety of freckles that he's not very fond of. Day to day, when he's not wearing his Wizard robes, Dani wears jeans and a t-shirt, especially his black t-shirt of a Wizarding band that he likes. He has no tattoos, no birthmarks, and tends to be on the skinnier side.

Character personality: Dani is a Slytherin, through and through, but he's a remarkably charming and charismatic one. It seems like he can get anyone to do anything with his silver tongue, and he's managed to talk his way out of a detention or two. He likes to play pranks and though he's a Slytherin, Dani doesn't want to hurt anyone - he always makes sure that his pranks are harmless, if annoying. He's smart, smart enough that a lot of teachers don't understand how such a "bright, model student" could be such a troublemaker. Dani is a Pureblood, but from a family that isn't considered one of the old guard families of Slytherin - as a result, he's had to be rather ruthless with his fellow Slytherins from First Year on, having earned his place among their ranks. He has friends in all Houses, but Dani always goes back to Slytherin for his most cherished friendships. When he's angry, it's best to stay out of his way; he's quick with hexes and jinxes.

Character hobbies:
Dani likes to learn - he is often found studying something or other. He has an affinity for charms, which translates to hexes and jinxes as well. His pranks also tend to hinge on charms, or the occasional transfiguration. In addition to studying, Dani enjoys listening to music and hanging out with his friends, learning from the different Houses. He also likes learning languages that are not human languages - he would like to learn how to talk to Merpeople - as well as the different customs and cultures of non-human beings, such as Goblins and House Elves (much to the chagrin of his fellow Slytherins).


Please answer the following questions about your character in as much detail as possible (at minimum 3 sentences each). Bullet point answers will not be accepted for these questions.

- How does your character see him/herself?

Dani struggles with how he views himself. Outwardly, he is a charismatic, confident young man. Inwwardly, he knows Slytherins are seen as evil, and he wants to change that, but he worries that he's a bad person after all.

- What is one ambition that your character has?

Dani wants to graduate and become an Auror. This is to the chagrin of his grandfather, who is an old-fashioned Pureblood, but Dani wants to be someone for his younger brother to look up to, and someone that his older brother can be proud of. He hasn't told anyone other than his family of his plans after Hogwarts.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?

He wanted to be a Gryffindor, but the Hat placed him in Slytherin instead. He'll never admit it now, because it would be showing weakness - at least, he won't admit it to anyone beyond his brothers. He'd also really like to change how people view him simply because he's in Slytherin, and he's actively working to change that.

- What motivates your character?

The idea of becoming an Auror fuels his studies. His pranking is motivated by boredom and a desire to stir things up. Overall, Dani is motivated by changing how people view Slytherins (since he can't be a Gryffindor), and how his brother is treated in Slytherin as well.

- What frightens your character?

Dani is terrified of the Lake because he doesn't know exactly what's beneath it - he absolutely can't swim in it. He's also scared of his little brother (who is gentle and kind) being treated poorly in Slytherin, and so he makes himself as big and important as possible so that hopefully his reputation will carry his brother through. Last but not least, Dani is scared of anyone finding out about his sexuality, which he's not sure of himself.

She is Caucasian, and has especially pale skin, as her ancestors are of Irish descent. She is approximately 5'7", and skinny in build though not 'scraggly'. Lilith is 17 and in her 6th year of Hogwarts, as her birthday is fairly early in the school year on the 4th November. Despite this, she has a tattoo on her ankle of a small snake, which she did herself [underage].

((rough idea of appearance: ))

Character personality: Lilith is a Slytherin: as such, she tends to be very ambitious and resilient in reaching her goals - but sometimes she can come across as arrogant/over-confident and apathetic. She is really an introvert, and not very confident at heart; however she is a bit of an actress and in an attempt to be more confident and make people like her, she can have uncontrollable moments of seeming more sure than she really is and getting more enthusiastic about things than she should. Because of all these things, she generally gets on with everybody - but she really only has a couple very close friends [if that]. With her close friends, she can be very kind and generous. She is quite sarcastic without being able to help it, but this is usually seen as funny by her friends. She has a questionable habit of wanting people to be happy and to like her, but is still very self-preserving/private and has a limit to how far she'll go to help others if it causes trouble to her own well-being.

Character hobbies: Lilith is quite the Thespian, and aside from her Hogwarts subjects she spends a lot of time watching films and musicals - and singing along to them or acting in a drama club she's joined at Hogwarts. She is quite creative and enjoys drawing and writing [including songs], but it isn't her main talent. Lilith enjoys a rainy afternoon by the fire with a good book, but at times she will also like going out for a walk in the nature around her. Lilith usually likes to keep busy, therefore if she isn't exploring one of her hobbies, she will likely be doing homework or extra research for her classes, especially Defense Against The Dark Arts [her favourite] -- sometimes for fun and sometimes because of her innate ambition and drive to always be on-top.


- How does your character see *herself?

Lilith sees herself as someone with potential, though she isn't always certain of her success. She is aware of her consistent determination and resilience with achieving any goal she wants to pursue, because she always wants to be the best (or as close as she can get). However, she isn't sure if this is because of her inner feelings of inadequacy or the sense that she is annoying/disliked/not smart.

- What is one ambition that your character has?

Her main ambition is to graduate top of her class and go on to become an Auror (and maybe an actress on the side!). As part of this, she strives for 100% in her tests every year and has already begun research for the job of an Auror. She also wants to continue drama as a hobby, so takes part in any performances she can, and sometimes uploads her pieces to the internet. ((*presuming the internet is allowed in this universe!*))

- What is something your character would like to change in *her life?

Probably for her to accept herself and hence be willing to accept times she 'fails' or doesn't get her way. -And also therefore being more open to just enjoying moments and having fun instead of worrying about being 'perfect'. She often ends up being alone/lonely from pushing people away and/or not making time for friends over work or something else she wants to do.

- What motivates your character?

Seeing others who have become successful talk about their lives and experiences. -The idea that there is an ideal sort of lifestyle that she would like to achieve and that would make her happy, and a way of making the world a better place. Lilith lost both her parents by the time she reached 12 years old, and so she is partly filled with vengeful sadness and partly pushed to prevent bad things like this from happening to others.

- What frightens your character?

Aside from a severe phobia of spiders [thank goodness Aragog doesn't want any new friends], Lilith is usually troubled by deeper fears such as the obvious fear (or maybe denial) of Death, and also that of loneliness or not finding true understanding friends/a partner. Although she has a few close friends at Hogwarts, she often feels that they don't always 'click' or truly understand one another, and longs for some relationship where she always feels comfortable. She can also be scared when finding people or things are not what she thought they were, and the feeling of distance that comes with it.
