Demara Sigh
Growing up on the streets of Brooklyn, everything's simple. You stay out of the police's way, hope nobody shoots you, keep drugs out your hands, and stay in school, and maybe, if you're real lucky, you'll end up with the big shots. Demara's father grasped the idea and to followed it to a T, and now he runs a barbershop on the corner. Not bad but could be better. His mother threw the whole concept out the window and now she's sitting in prison for the next fifteen years. Demara doesn't see her at all.

Demara's father always used his mother as an example of why you should "stay out of trouble", and Demara followed that to a T. There was no way she was going to prison like her mother, and she wasn't going to get roped in to all those stereotypes that surrounded her daily. Although, one night her dad was closing up shop late so he was heading home later than usually, past the imaginary curfew that people who knew well enough used to stay inside. Police pulled him over and the rest was history.

At first, the death hurt a lot, and Demara didn't know how to deal with it, so she just suppressed it and buried it. With her mom still in prison, Social Services sent her and Sekani to her aunt and uncle in the UK, and wouldn't you know, turns out their aunt and uncle were magical. None of them knew Sekani was a wizard since he was a late bloomer when it came to magic. His first sign came just a couple of months before the letter came and even then, it was kind of late. He wanted fresh flowers for his aunt and bam there they were, except they were growing from nowhere and oh, look, now they're thirteen feet tall. That's a problem.

Demara knew she had a special gift, she had been using it since she was 9 when she hasseled a group of boys at her school. but she didn't know that it was called magic until her aunt and uncle explained it to her. Suddenly she was enrolled to go to Hogwarts and be thrown into this wizarding world she knew nothing about, seems like her life really did get flipped turned upside down.
Demara isn't your typical 14-year-old, let alone your typical girl at all. She isn't the type of girl to gossip or mingles with the popular crowd, and she for sure isn't the type of girl to care about makeup or looks or anything of the sort.

Growing up in Brooklyn, she didn't really fit in well with those people in the first place, so she made it a point to stay as far away from them as possible. She's a loner, and she likes it that way and wants to be alone. Who needs people to be close to you when all that happens is them getting hurt or leaving you?

The only person she cares about is her younger brother, Sekani, and she'll do A N Y T H I N G to protect him. Growing up she was always looking out for him, and especially more so now that they're alone in England. She feels like she's needing to grow up faster for him, and because of some resenting feelings towards that, she's grown slightly bitter. She doesn't smile as much as she used too, and she hardly laughs or chuckles, unless it's a dark chuckle.

Demara is a cunning, sly, and knows how to get her way. She did those things to deal with the kids in her school back home and knows that using her magic added to that as well. People knew not to mess with her because whatever they did she could do it better, but in a way that they'd never see coming. She wasn't mean per se, but she was slightly manipulative.

Underneath what seems to be the endless layers of Demara's walls, there is a happy and actually kind girl who's been suppressed for so long that even Demara herself doesn't know she's there anymore. All it'll take is a close friend to start peeling back the layers that she's built for so long, and bring the old Demara to surface again.
