Life Before Quidditch

Recuerda lo que te dije?

– Alejandra Flores

Yo soy una potencia; Soy indestructible.

–Araceli Flores

Unbeknownst to her, or her parents, Arli had begun intervening magically during some of her sporting events. Helping her teams to win, and helping the other teams to lose. It became evident to her mother during a swim meet, Araceli was staying under water much longer than the other swimmers. Outshining them as if she were an elite athlete. Her mother passed off any suspicion by claiming that Arli had been born with strong lungs. She was told that she has unimaginable talent, even when she was not performing to the best of her ability. It gave her a bit of an ego until she was unable to live up to the image her parents had of her. She considered herself worthless, and she attempted suicide. She was unsuccessful in her attempt, however, the failure to kill herself required her to be placed in a psychiatric ward for observation. Arli spent two years under the watch of psychotherapist and healers before she was deemed fit to return to her family, and rejoin society. Fearing what could happen if she did not participate in her favorite activities her parents did not push her as hard as they had in the past to compete, yet Araceli still had the ambition to win. Whenever she lost, or her team placed poorly they tired to assuage that sense of defeat with positive affirmation hoping they could find the right words to keep her from ever feeling worthless again no matter what the cause.

Ilvermorny

She studied magic at Ilvermorny, where she was Sorted into Wampus after being chosen by both Horned Serpent and Wampus. She excelled at Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, and Herbology. She contemplated a life as a Charms Professor shortly before she came to the conclusion that she wanted to play quidditch. It was not a sport she was good at, unlike most others which she took to as if they had always been a part of her life. She tried to get a feel for a few different positions giving Beater, a try, before switching to Chaser. Neither felt like a fit for her, her shot a Keeper left her with a broken wrist, a dislocated shoulder, and a mild concussion. She had to take some time off from sports altogether. Her big comeback to world of sports came in the form of her playing as a substitute Seeker.

¡Viva México!

Arli exploded onto the scene in the professional quidditch world after she left school. She had been training hard in the previous years, and even earned her place as a starter on her home team. Her tryout for the MNQT Seeker position did not go the way she planned. She made an impression, and found her way onto the roster. Playing on the national circuit could have been a major detriment to the leaps and bounds that were made in the treatment of her depression over the last nine years. The positive affirmations have worked wonders for her. She no longer played the game to win, not that it stopped her from trying her hardest. She played for the thrill, and the rush of adrenaline the goes along with competition.

Personality

Overcritical — Ambitious, Gregarious, Dependable, Superficial

She might look like a dainty, little, barbie doll. She is anything but, this woman is so much more than just her good looks. She can strike fast, and she can kick hard. She is not naturally violent in nature or aggressive by choice, her TKD skills have given her an arsenal of strangleholds, and joint locks that lead her to believe size is not a clear indication of strength. She needs to be provoked, her level of patience can indeed be tested. It takes a lot to get her to go into "beast mode", let it be known that the feral animal that lies in wait inside of her is not something that should be ever seen. She still suffers from a bit of insecurity, she tries to look absolutely picture perfect at all times because of how much she hates to be critiqued or have her flaws pointed out to her.

Mannerisms: Plays with her hair
Peculiarities: Dislikes tattoos, but likes them on other people
Worst bad habit: Practically gives money away
Quirks: Can sneeze on command
Pet Peeves: Haters

Appearance

Diane Guerrero

Looks can be deceiving, Arli is proof positive that the saying is a fact. She is quite petite, standing at only 5'2 inches tall. She tends to appear younger than she actually is. She is also rather curvaceous despite her athletic build, and the muscular structure of her legs. She has a womanly silhouette that can turn the heads of any gender. Arli has common Latina features, she has big, doe-like brown eyes, and her skin is a beautiful, warm brown complexion. Her hair is long, cascading in shiny, silky brown/black tresses down to the middle of her back. She likes to dress up for any occasion. She loves high heels, and tight dresses, the only time she dresses down intentionally is for a quidditch match, and that is because a uniform is required. She has requested, only to be denied multiple times, to have a short peplum style pleated skirt added to hers.

Mother Arli's mother Alejandra always wanted a daughter, after four mischievous boys she finally got exactly what she wanted in her pequeña estrella. She showered her with praise which was ultimately the cause of the deadly downward spiral.
Father Arli's father Juan Manuel was happy to finally get a girl, because he knew she was always what Alejandra wanted. He was proud to be a maker of men, but his inability to produce a princesa made him feel inadequate. Arli became his legacy.
Brother Arli's eldest brother César was nine was she was born, by the time she was four he was a lost cause. He barely returned home, and when he did he brought a lot of shady people with him. He got kicked out, and news of his death came years later.
Brother Arli's elder brother Lazaro followed in César footsteps, he knew how much it upset his parents to get involved in the same criminal activity. He wanted the same reputation his brother had, he earned it, and it also got him killed. He was sixteen.
Brother Arli's elder brother Sansón seemed like he would be the good one, he stayed out of trouble, but not for long. Like Arli he was good at sports. When he got hurt, and could no longer play he turned to drugs. It was not long before an overdose followed.
Brother Arli's elder brother Víctor, like her he watched as brother after brother after brother followed the same pattern that lead to their deaths. He swore he was not going to be the same. He was weak-willed, his promises meant nothing. He was the youngest when he passed.
