1) Give a history of your character. History must be at least two paragraphs long. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? etc.

Bethany Westenberg is a Scottish-born Half-Blood witch of Portuguese, Spanish and English descent. She is the eldest only daughter of Eliana Mina, and Thaddeus Westenberg.

Her mother Eliana Mina is Pure-Blood witch, a Wizarding Duellist, and an Animagus. Her father Thaddeus Westenberg is an Analytical Neuroscientist, and a Psychiatrist. A Muggle-Born magical late bloomer, who did not receive his magical inheritance until he was a thirty-three year old man. Unlike her father Thaddeus, Bethany was raised in Portugal. Among Eliana's family, the renowned Sereníssima Casa de Bragança (Most Serene House of Braganza), Bethany's magic flourished unnaturally early. From her childhood home in a feudal 12th century castle it was discovered that he was a witch by age three.

She took her finger and she traced along the stone walls in her room, she left behind marks in the stone. (A very minor Defodio) It looked more like scratches but the more she did it, the more evident they became. She was amazed, and she loved to leave little doodles everywhere, when her father noticed them he had her mother fill them all in, while he doled out the negative reinforcement. She was forced to stare at the wall for hours on end, her father knew this would encourage her to attempt to leave traces on the wall without her hand. Which she did, and every-time she did he would 'tap' her. It was sometimes a poke to the center of her forehead or a light thump to her one of her shoulders. She has never liked being tapped, she sometimes hates for people to touch her, even lightly to this day because of it. She was a caterpillar and a butterfly simultaneously. Under the thumb of her father at such a fragile age she was vulnerable to being squished. The will of her mother would never let her and a young Bethany passed every one of her father's cruel torture tests. He was always pleased with his little girl and she despised him for it.

As per her her grandfather Maicol's last wishes the Westenberg children attended the same small wizarding school their grandmother Antia's ancestors attended. Of Thaddeus and Eliana's five children Bethany and Josiah are the only children to have transferred out. Bethany graduated from Beauxbâtons Academy of Magic. After which she left the country to play quidditch professionally, something which of-course her father forbade her from doing because as he said "she was born a female child". She does not play to spite her father, she plays because she loves the sport.

2) Give a description of your character's personality. Personality must be at least one paragraph long. Are you noble or sneaky? Arrogant or humble?

She was always a precocious child, a sweet girl with the fire of a dragon inside of her. When she was a young girl she would sneak out a night, and dance with the dragons. She was flying with them, but by saying she was dancing her parents believed she was keeping her feet on the ground. She is her mother's daughter, and when she was that little girl once upon a time she wanted to be like her mother, strong and resilient like a dragon, yet devastating and volatile like their fire. Bethany did have a rather rough upbringing, but she is still a confident, and very sweet, yet very controlled, and slightly forceful woman.

3) Are you Pure-Blood, Half-Blood or Muggle-Born? Do you have any notable magical relations? (Remember, you cannot be related to important Harry Potter characters!)


4) Does your character have any special magical abilities? Or special abilities in general (photographic memory, etc.)? Is he or she of a different magical race, such as veela, vampire, werewolf or the likes? Part or half of that magical race counts!
