The Durand family was one made up pure-blooded wizards and although they weren’t well known across the wizarding world, they stack mountains high in money. Even just the sound of their surname would be enough to sway someone’s mindset, though that happened more around muggles. While the Durand family seemed nice enough to their own flesh and blood and other pure-blooded wizards, they were unfortunately the types of pure-bloods who looked down upon muggle horns or half breeds; turkey believing that only the pure were deserving of magic. Penelope Durand was just another product of this family and it was from her and her husband Tristan, who was also a pure-blood, that Evelyn was born. These two thankfully did not have the same views as the rest of the family though, something Evelyn as an adult would be grateful for.
Growing up for Evelyn was quite the lavish lifestyle. She was showered with toys on top of toys and had butlers at her beck and call but, Evelyn really wasn’t that type of girl. She’d always request for her maid to play with her rather than do her bidding and on many occasions she’d end up giving away the toys she received; courtesy of her grandparents who loved to spending on their grandchildren. Being raised by both Penelope and Tristan also helped develop her views on the world and of course they were much different than the rest of her families. At times she’d be scolded by other family members when she’d try play with muggles or even just half breeds but, Evelyn was kind and innocent. She could never turn her back or deem herself better than any other living creature.
Like any normal child, Evelyn went to primary schooling. Learned to write, read, and all the essentials. It wasn’t till she turned the age of 7 that things began to change fore her. It was just any ordinary day and of course for the Durand family and ordinary day meant a big party being thrown for no apparent reason. Somewhere throughout the day, Evelyn landed herself in game of tag with one of her cousins. Unbeknownst to the young girl though was that her cousin was a half-breed and an outcast to the family. An abomination, any of her family members would call him and none them were all to happy that he or his disgrace of a mother had crashed the party. The game had already caught the attention of some of Evelyn’s overly judgmental aunts and when it came time for her cousin to tag her, one of the stepped in and grabbed him by the arm.
“Don’t you dare lay one of your filthy little hands on her.”
They ain’t shouted, enraged that someone of muggle descent would dare lie a hand on a pure-blood. It was after this that Evelyn’s aunt raised her hand with intentions to slap the boy across the face but, she was suddenly stopped and thrown across the yard. Everyone was shocked to say the least and even more shocked to see a crying Evelyn was now hugging her cousin. “Don’t hurt him!” She screamed. This was the mark of her first magical encounter and while her parent weren’t all to thrilled about her sending an aunt flying across the yard, they praised her for standing up for someone aside from herself.
From then on you can probably assume what happened. Evelyn went on to grow to the age of 11 and there she received her Hogwarts letter, being sorted into Ravenclaw. Due to the young girls innocent and caring nature, her years at Hogwarts weren’t always easy. While some embraced her traits and loved her for them, there were always those who decided to use them to their advantage. Not that she’d ever notice. She acquired friends and mainly focused on her studies and gradually made her way through the years of her school, almost always in the handle full of top student.
As the years went on and Evelyn grew more into her body and facial features, she naturally began attracting the attention of other individuals. It might have been a little out of character for Evelyn, due to her innocence, but, at the age of 17 she acquired a boyfriend name William. He was an overall nice boy and he was also a year older then Evelyn herself, things were good for them for a while. At least until Williams sexual urges started to rise. Whilst they may have been dating, Evelyn never thought of the idea of sexual encounters and sadly, she definitely didn’t want it to happen the first time her and Will had done it. She’d begged him to stop but, powered by his urges and the fact that his nice guy persona was all just an act to bed Evelyn anyways, William did not; forcing himself into the girl.
Of course, Evelyn didn’t think what had happened was right and she’d obviously been aware of rape being a major problem in modern society but, William was able to convince her he’d done it out of love. That they had made love and that he hadn’t forced himself on her like he truly did. At the age she is currently Evelyn probably would have smashed his genitals in but, unfortunately her younger self was much more gullible and naive that she ended up believing him. Staying with him, which resulted in many other occasions where he’d force himself on to her.
Months would pass before Evelyn finally talked about the situation with her mother and finally realized that it wasn’t out of love that William was doing this to her. By then though, scar had already been embedded into Evelyn and her whole persona change drastically. Where she was once a innocent, kind and loving girl, she was now very outspoken and protecting of herself. William has been expelled from Hogwarts after a long investigation and Evelyn no longer allowed anyone to use exploit her or walk over her. She graduate Hogwarts that year and after that she went traveling the world, courtesy of her family's money, studying the art of Metal Charming.
It wasn’t till a few months ago that she finally settled into a penthouse located in London, her main source of income being her career as a metal charmer and being pretty dam good at it. She’d made quite the life for herself and to top it off, her parents moved from America to London with her.
