Does she seem like the kind of girl to wear frilly dresses? Oh heck no!
Care of Magical Creatures
Riding on her horse.
Rises from the ashes
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
Arizona is a rambunctious young girl. She'd rather be outside playing rugby or riding a mustang than do arts and crafts. Which she's not afraid to tell you so. She's brutally honest and finds it one of her better qualities. She's hardworking due to helping her father around the farm. She never complains. Never. She's resilient and strong-willed. She's stubborn and caring.
However, she hates being protected. After all, she is more than capable of doing that herself. She may come off as rude because of her honesty. Being stubborn can get her into a lot of trouble. She hates being told that she's wrong and will just fight harder that she's right. When she does find out that she's wrong, she feels horrible for treating people the way she does.
What's this Gryffin Door? It sounds kind of lame. Though the talking hat did say she was brave so...She ain't complaining. Though, really. Gryffindor? Who came up with that name? Why not Braveheart or something?
Jessica Austin was born to Frank and Isabelle Austin. They never intended to have children, Isabelle was 40 years old when they conceived. They carried the baby girl to term and intended to put her up for adoption... that is until they looked at her. Frank and Isabelle fell in love with their healthy baby girl and kept her.
Jessica was special though... she was a witch you see. A muggle-born, and weird things were always happening around her. Finally a Hogwarts letter arrived and that explained everything. Jessica was off to Hogwarts come September. The year was 1996. That year at Hogwarts was a year of change. Albus Dumbledore was killed. Jessica was a smart girl and she knew what was coming. She told her parents, and they immediately packed their bags and fled for Arizona, USA.
Jessica fit right in with the small town feel, and her parents fell in love with the little town. Soon enough, the British accents faded and you couldn't tell that the Austin's weren't from around there. Jessica went to school and fell in love with the school's resident bad boy named Robert James. Her parent's were a little hesitant right at the outset, but Robert worked his charm and soon enough the couple had Frank and Isabelle's approval. Right after High School, Robert proposed to Jessica. Jessica was 18 and Robert was 19 (he got held back). Hank was then born.
A year later, Arizona James was born.
Arizona soon proved that she was not easy to handle. May it be wandering off in the grocery store to wanting to play football with the other boys. She started 'helping' around the farm around age three. After all, it looked like fun! When Arizona was five, she had two new siblings.
She spent her time helping and playing. The twins liked to stay inside so Arizona only saw them at meal times. When Arizona was eight years old, she displayed that she too had magic. One of the horses were injured. Naturally she was worried. So, she protectively put her hand on the injured leg and low and behold, the leg was healed. She was surprised. She looked at her family and Hank couldn't hide his excitement.
Arizona soon went to Salem with her brother. However, her mother longed to be back in England. So, in her fourth year, they sold the farm and moved.
She's actually pretty skilled at this. After all, she spent the majority of her childhood riding horses.
