Keira Schmidt is a fun loving and outgoing girl. She loves to be the center of attention and often thinks the world revolves around her. Though she thinks this way, it's not because she thinks she's better than everyone else, but rather that she grew up with her parents giving her and her siblings anything they wanted.
She tends to be a social butterfly and a stereotypical girly girl. She loves to be around people at all times and likes to consider herself as a popular person. You'll often find her worrying about how she looks or complaining that her current outfit is no longer in style. She'll spend hours getting ready for the smallest of events just so that she always looks great.
Keira isn't the worst student, but she cares far more about her social life than her schooling. She'd rather talk throughout class and stay up to date on all the gossip than learn about whatever Potion Professor Griffin is blabbing on about.
In many situations, Keira can be pretty clueless. Many things will go right over her head, and she finds herself confused way too often.
Keira was born in London on March 15 to a German witch and Wizard. Her father, Roderick Schmidt, came from a pretty well known family. He used to be the seeker for the Harriers until his accident. From then on, he was no longer able to play and moved to London to work for the Department of Magical Games and Sports. Her mother, Brigitta, was a Muggle-Born witch who met Roderick during their fifth year. The began dating towards the beginning of their sixth year and became engaged just after the finished school. The held off getting married so that Roderick could pursue his Quidditch career. Meanwhile, Brigitta returned to the Muggle world and became a teacher. While she loved the magical world, she felt drawn towards what she truly considered home. After Roderick was injured, she moved with him to London, where they finally got married. Just after they got married, they adopted a young boy, who they named Holden. A few years later, the twins were born.
Keira was the first born of the twins. She was born at 9:25 AM on March 15, followed by her fraternal twin sister, Ilsa, 5 minutes later. As they grew, the two became each others' best friend. They did everything together and were never apart. Most people just assumed they were friends and not twins because of how different they looked. Keira always wished that they had been identical because it seemed like they could have more fun. As for her older, they got along pretty well, and she looked up to him for a lot of things. Of course, they had their moments where they fought, and the sassy nature of both her and Holden often causes problems. While he could pretty annoying, Keira loves Holden and couldn't have asked for a better brother.
When Keira and Ilsa turned 11, they both received their letters to Hogwarts. Once they arrived, Ilsa was the first to be sorted. When the words Hufflepuff echoed throughout the hall, Keira was scared they would be separated for the first time. She nervously sat on the stool as the hat was placed on her head. After what seemed like an eternity, the Hat shouted "Hufflepuff" and she ran to join her sister. Though the next few years, Keira began to focus more on being social and popular then on her grades. While she still did ok and passed her classes, it was only just barely.
Now in their fifth year, Keira and Ilsa are preparing to take their OWLs. Their brother Holden will now be starting as a first year, and they both hope he'll join them in Hufflepuff.
