The Open-Ended Questions

1) What would you consider to be your character's strengths, and your character's weaknesses? Elaborate.

Although it's not like she's oddly intelligent, her capability for memorization is phenomenal. While it's not anything like photographic memory, she's the one who's most likely to remember everybody and who they are. Well, she also tends to make spreadsheets for all of her classmates as if to be analyzing them carefully. However, that's more a weakness than anything else. Adelita is completely capable of making friends. It's just a matter of convincing her that it's worth it to be meeting people instead of just figuring them out from a distance.

2) What goals and objectives has your character set out in their life? Why?

So far, she's pretty lacking in the goals department. Sure, it might be useful for her to have some ambitions but that doesn't mean she has the guts to set them. To her, they're just meant for creating a bundle of disappointment for her. If she has hopes or dreams, she's just going to see them crashing down around her. So, she's refrained from having or setting any. Secretly, she really wants a boyfriend who will love her, but that's very unlikely to happen, no?

3) What's their ideal way of spending a free day? Why?

If she's given a free period, which is rare since she's known to be crowding her schedule to waste her time, then she's normally known to be sitting or stalking around, watching or listening to those around her to wonder what exactly their characters are. However, she's discovered this can normally cause faults in her expectations for people but it's not like she'll stop anytime soon. After all, catching up on all the gossip or drama around the school without actually having to ask or be a part is amazing. If she's not in the mood for it though, she's normally just reading books on tarot or palm reading to fill her boredom.

4) If your character could only keep 5 possessions, what would they be? Why?

Adelita could never pick only five possessions. Besides, why would that even happen? Oh, that's right, it wouldn't. If she had to, she could probably live with her spreadsheets (those nicely printed and scribbled on pamphlets of paper are her everything sadly enough) and four of her most precious wigs (they're expensive, okay). Seriously though, she would never be in a situation where she would only be capable of taking exactly five items. Therefore, she doesn't think about it any.

5) What one thing would your character change about the wizarding society? Why?

Since blood supremacy has mostly passed, there's few things that she would really want to change about the wizarding society. However, the electronics problem drives her crazy. Seriously, she just needs her iPhone or iPad at all times and if it weren't for the fact that they'd blow up she would definitely be dragging them all around Hogwarts. So, she would love it if somebody fixed that "slightly annoying" issue soon.

6) What house does your character want to be in? What house does your character not want to be in? Why?

Although Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw would equally be nice, Adelita honestly couldn't care less about where she's at in Hogwarts. Well, she thinks Gryffindor is a bit boring and cliche so anywhere but there.

The Character's Background

1) Write about your character's personality. Are you noble or sneaky, arrogant or humble? Anything about your character that might help the Sorting Hat decide.

Adelita has always seemed shy or timid, at least that's how she acted when she was younger. Recently, she's blossomed into a more sociable figure in society between standing around and listening to people who are talking to each other. Personally, she has always preferred having attention centered on people other than herself unless she absolutely needs it. For example, if she's saddened or angered, then she's fine with possibly opening up and saying something. Otherwise, it seems like it's best for her to be limiting herself to the position as the official weirdo at parties.

Although rarely known for anything, she's always enjoyed being an intelligent soul. Actually, she's quite aware she's lacking in that department. However, she's been adapting to a point of being smart in the way that isn't always getting great test scores or writing lengthy essays. It's more so interpersonal and existential intelligence that really fires her up. While humans are complicated beings, she's very tuned in on their functions. Sure, they're incredibly interesting to be analyzing for forever, but she's a lot more focused on knowing how things are going around her too.

Sometimes, she can get incredibly bratty. Truthfully, it's not that she's a bad person but it's that people have bad qualities. Although she's aware she's not favorable for friendships (let alone relationships), she's known for coming off as if she's perfect. Whether it's flirting or conversing, it's commonplace for her to get rejected or turned down and that's occasionally turning out to be a poor decision on the other person's behalf. While it's rare to see such behavior, she can only be pushed off or bullied or treated poorly so many times before a girl snaps, you know?

2) Write about your character's history. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? etc.

Joaquin Vicente Saavedra was born on November 15th in Mérida, Mexico. While her father was a Mexican Pure-Blood who worked as a Healer, her mother was an American Veela. At first, the pair attempted co-parenting for nearly two years before her mother gained full custody from her father. Immediately, they moved into California where the lived for a year before they returned to New York where she had initially hailed from.

While she acted relatively normal, people normally got concerned with how the promiscuous behavior of her mother affected her. However, she was primarily cared for by a relative who happened to be a bit more sane. In fact, she was moved into her custody a few months after she turned six years old. At that point, she moved to Pennsylvania and had officially started to identify as a girl. At least, she kind of started to between wearing dresses and using minimal children's makeup which her elementary school accepted in a way.

Although it's a confusing mess, she's not necessarily transgender. Actually, she's quite male but she's always registered herself as a female too. For years, she struggled with showing her identity in a way that's productive. When she first attended Ilvermorny, where she got accepted into Wampus, she was finally allowed to properly identify as Adelita Rosario Saavedra while still enrolled in the school as Joaquin. Honestly, she hadn't remembered showing any sort of magical tendencies so being sent to Ilvermorny was shocking. While there, she felt like she was comfortable like it was another home to her.

At first, she struggled to create friendships with the other students, but by the end of her first year she had bonded with a Muggle-Born witch named Kadian Hernandez and a Half-Blood witch named Edythe Bryant. Although she third-wheeled it, she enjoyed being around them especially as they turned into teenagers. After all, what's nicer than gossiping about other girls and looking at boys? Well, friendly studying sessions and games of Twister or Trivial Pursuit, of course! Basically, their lives together were fantastic until news hit that Kadian was moving to Brazil and Edythe was moving to Russia to be attending Castelobruxo and Koldovstoretz respectfully.

While the girls tried not to rebel against their families' wishes, they decided it would be best to spend just one last year together before parting (and definitely keeping in touch). Then, as the year neared to an end, it was announced that since her biological and adoptive mothers wanted to move to Wales, that she would be soon attending Hogwarts. Although it separated them further, it meant that she would no longer be abandoned at Ilvermorny on her own so she settled. As they packed their bags to be landing in a little Welsh town, they received a letter stating that her father had died of a magical sickness which seemed to not affect the girl as much as it probably should've.

Either way, she was starting to attend Hogwarts upon reaching her OWLs year. After an annoying experience with the Sorting Hat, she was placed into (INSERT) which she felt was (INSERT2). While drifting through the year, she mostly recorded what it was like compared to what Kadian and Edythe were doing. In fact, she probably just looked like some concerning freak which was most likely the reason why literally nobody approached her ever. After passing her OWLs and attempting a passion for Quidditch, Adelita is determined to take this upcoming year at Hogwarts by storm.

4) Is your character a Pure-Blood, Half-Blood or Muggle-Born? Do you have any notable magical relations?
