Mathilde Reinhardt
fifth year hufflepuff

Mathilde simultaneously breaks the mould of the 'stereotypical' German in some ways, and yet fits it perfectly in others. For example, her bright and outgoing nature surprises those who put stock in the idea of the 'stoic' German, but she's just as well-organised as the stereotypes say, as well as completely intolerant of mess – or rather, the people who make it but then refuse to clean it up, and similarly also her tendency to always be completely punctual, if she is not early.

However, the rumour that she might have no sense of humour is immediately discarded when you meet her, because she is actually very much able to take a joke (and prone to making them, to a point) and she's also far more prone to romance than you might believe. Her inability to cook has nothing to do with the country she's from, and she'll make sure people are aware of it. She keeps a cool head under pressure, perhaps it could be considered 'too' cool on occasion.

However, Mathilde can struggle with empathy and fairly quick changes in her own mood, too. She prefers the truth to sugar-coating, and somehow, that's not always the best for everyone. She is, however, down for a good time, as long as it's not against any rules she knows of and it has been planned in advance. She doesn't take well to things being 'sprung' on her because of how rigidly scheduled her day is.

Her personality type is ESTJ.


Mathilde Reinhardt was the first-born and only child of Magnus and Liesel Reinhardt, two German muggles working for Deutsche Bank. It was a mostly uneventful childhood, moving through the motions, attending school, never really getting into trouble but never really getting a lot of praise either. Just 'coasting', she'd call it now, an attitude which improved over time. Until, of course, the day that she made their pet dog fly, and the Ministry officials called at their door.

She was about six, and they were told that their daughter was in fact a witch due to far-back lineage through a Squib relative. So, they moved from the city to a more rural area where it was less likely to be noticed, and she was home-schooled from that point forward so they could handle her...fireworks. There were several little displays – more flight, sparks, and the like. Once she worked out the sparks, she was able to do it on will, much to the despair of her parents (and their sleeping patterns).

They kept this secret from the world, of course, although they were really quite proud of their witch daughter. Over time they started looking at the options for their daughter's magical schooling. The closest school, Durmstrang, was impossible for Mathilde due to their discrimination by blood status, so eventually, it was decided that she would be sent to Beauxbatons. ( Mathilde, who, having heard about them all, liked the sound of Castelobruxo, was mildly put out by this decision. )

She was a decent student, propelled by improved attitude and her parents' desire to see her use her magic to bring her success – she played Quidditch, and even tried wizards' chess, although she was never much good at the latter. The opportunity for a transfer program came up this year, and Mathilde didn't hesitate to sign up; she'd heard great things about the place, and one of her few friends, Adrienne, was transferring there permanently. So why not dip her toes in the water? What has she got to lose? Mathilde supposes she can only find out.

"too many hard times, too much to think about, i am the eye watching over you."
"so let it roll like a new born soul. let it roll, let it roll, let it roll like a new born soul."
