The Character's Background

1) Give a description of your character's personality. It must be at least two paragraphs long, seven sentences each.

Callie has many of the qualities of a child that grew up being told they were a special miracle child. She's slightly entitled, a little aimless, and doesn't have a whole lot of ambition for herself. She has ambition for people around her, though. Seeing her brother constantly ignored made her Oliver's biggest ally, and so she's his biggest cheerleader as a result. She knows how to be a cheerleader for the down-trodden, and is good at building people up. Being naturally pretty, she's also slightly vain (but when you're half-veela, it's also hard not to be?) about her complexion, and she spends hours in front of the mirror making her hair and makeup look just right.

Being Half-Veela has given Callie something of a temper. She knows this about herself, and she tries to keep it in check, but it's never easy. She hates it most when she goes off on her brother, but that doesn't happen much. She likes to think that when she does truly go off on someone, that's it's usually justified... but that's not always the case, and she knows that. She sometimes wishes she weren't Half-Veela-- half the time people express interest in her, she questions whether or not it's because they actually like her, or if it's just her Veela influences. Because of this, she's very skeptical about her romantic relationships, and she frequently breaks them off, sometimes prematurely.

2) Write about the history of your character. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? It must be at least three paragraphs long, seven sentences each.

Callie Gwendolyn Lancaster was rushed into the world a month early, on November 2nd, 2018. With her mother's recently diagnosis of breast cancer, the doctors felt it was best for Callie to enter the world early, for her own well-being. Though the first moments of Callie's life were seemingly touch-and-go, the rest of her life she thrived and she was treated as a miracle child. Callie had a brother, four years her senior, who mostly ignored Callie when she was first born-- not that Callie has any memory of this. As Callie got older, Oliver came around and the two grew up close. Callie still vaguely remembers a time when she got a scratch on her knee, and she was crying and her brother (too young for Hogwarts) fixed it for her. While she might have been the miracle child, and given special treatment, her older brother was always her hero.

Callie was seven when Oliver went off to Hogwarts. She was so upset about it, that her first signs of magic came as soon as the train pulled away. She stamped her feet on the ground, frustrated that she couldn't go too, and some of the bricks beneath her feet were broken in two. This startled her, but her parents were thrilled-- and they went off to celebrate with her, which Callie thought was strange... it felt like they were celebrating that Oliver was gone, and that didn't sit right with her. Four painstaking years later, Callie finally got her letter, and off she went. She was sorted into Hufflepuff, which was the only House she really wanted, since that's where Oliver was.

Her Hogwarts years weren't overly memorable, aside from her 2nd year when Oliver came out... which even then didn't feel like that much of a big deal. He was her brother, and idol, and why would she think of him any different? She always found it strange that her parent seemed to celebrate her grades (which were always average, or slightly above average... but nothing extraordinary) more than Oliver's. When she graduated, she definitely fell prey to the "golden aimless child" syndrome. She'd been told her entire life she was special and could make it as anything she wanted to be, that she never spent much time determining just what it was that she wanted to be. She moved back in with her parents after graduation and took a job waitressing at La Lune Bleue. She was thrilled when she heard that her brother had gotten engaged, but now that that's... over, she's super concerned about him-- to the point that she wonders if she should bring him back home.

3) Write about your character's appearance. What do they look like? Are you planning on using a certain model for your character? If you already have a picture in mind, you can put it here!

Hailee Steinfeld

4) Is your character a Pure-Blood, Half-Blood or Muggle-Born? Do you have any notable magical relations? (Remember, you cannot be related to important characters from the Harry Potter Universe!)

Half-Blooded Witch (Muggle-born wizarding Dad), Half-Veela (Veela Mom)

No notable relations

5) 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 like? Part or half of that magical race counts! (Remember, you cannot have a character with special abilities/of a different magical race as one of your first two characters!)

She's Half-Veela, on her mother's side

6) What is your character's profession? Does your character plan to enroll your character into the Ministry of Magic? Does your character not work? Is your character a teacher?

Right now she's working as a waitress at La Lune Bleue. She's not sure what she wants to do with her life yet.

OOC Questions

B. Whilst the first two questions will not affect the character's house (and are mandatory), the others are designed specifically to help users come up with their character's ideal job (and are optional).

1) Is this your first character?

A. This is my first character.
B. No, this is not my first character.

2) If your answer to the previous question is B, how many characters do you have? How many of them are "exotic"?

2, none exotic

3) What would people who know your character well say they're really good at?

Building people up, and being a cheerleader. Boys would say she's good at flaunting her looks, but that's her Veela side-- she doesn't do this intentionally.

4) What do they really want to avoid in their job/career? Do they hate working in an office? Do they hate the field?

She has no idea what to do, because she was kind of just generally good at all her classes, without having one that she particularly excelled in. She'd be fine in an office setting, but probably wouldn't want to be doing any "field" work since she's rather particular about her looks, and working in a "field" sort of career could probably mess up her look.

5) Aside from family and peers, what motivates your character the most in life? What drives their passion?

She's been told she can succeed at whatever she tries. But when you're told you can excel at everything it's hard to pick one thing. The only thing she knows she wants to do is help people, and lift up the downtrodden. She was declared special just because she survived... surely there are other people who are just as special for her, for (probably) better reasons.

6) Where does your character's weaknesses lie?

She's pretty vain, and she's got a temper if people aren't careful. :P

7) Wand cores and woods speak volumes about a person's character. What is your character's wand? Why does it answer to them?
