It looks like the letter S.

It looks like they feel angry.

– Minerva Macdonald

Her parents worked inexhaustibly, they put forth a never-ending amount of hours worth of training into attaining one goal. Getting to the top of their respective field of choice. The effort require one sacrifice; leaving their pride and joy at the mercy of others. With her mother's powerful career came limitless wonderful perks. There were also drawbacks Mini was typically shielded from. Mini and her family lived in a nice house, they were abundantly wealthy, and adored publicly. When there was a scandal afoot, or any turn of events that negatively concerned the wizarding community in Liechtenstein, the backlash was often aimed at Sorcha, and her ICW compatriots. She received threats of death, as did Griogair. Not only that, the most vile of extremists threatened Mini as well. Working within the ICW had been a blessing, the position had given her mother, and her father an advantageous start to building a great life for their daughter, but at what cost? It was as if her mother's career was a curse on the family.

Mini's first use of magic occurred four years prior to their move. She murdered the intruder who broke into their home. It happened shortly after her father, Griogair, learned that her mother, Sorcha, had been unfaithful for the past nine years. At the time, that was the span of their marriage, and the entirety of their daughter's life. Sorcha ended her affair, the trouble was her partner Henrik Halberstam. He was not willing to end the relationship. He stalked Sorcha, coming to her home at all hours of the day. He left things; flowers, chocolates, lingerie. Griogair was not going to stand for it any longer. Eight year old Mini beat him to it, and Henrik tripped trying to escape from Griogair when Mini levitated her marbles onto the steps. She and her father, Griogair, left her mother a few months later. Her parents are still married, and she still saw her mother. They did not share a domicile. The threats stopped while they were separated, and Sorcha transferred to another position, leaving the ICW, and Liechtenstein, for the British Ministry.

After her parents separated Mini went into therapy. She was having nightmares after Henrik's death. Her father had no idea what to do, her mother suggest a specialist. During her sessions she was reporting a history of experiences related to a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. Mini is a synesthete, synesthesia develops during childhood when children are intensively engaged with abstract concepts for the first time. It was discovered during her Kwikspell lessons, she only told her therapist about it. Eventually she told both her parents, accidentally describing how the letter F was a funny little girl who liked to play with unicorns and make odd noises. Or how the number 6 was serious woman who was interested in religion but also believed in UFOs. Sorcha thought Mini was only joking, then she began to believe Mini may have had dissociative disorder. Her fear was for not, Mini does not have a mental disorder she has a neurological condition.

Ravenclaw

She was Sorted into Ravenclaw and she absolutely did not see that one coming. Mini thought she was headed for Hufflepuff, she believed it firmly since she was four. When her older brother Ulysses was Sorted some ten years prior she thought they were nothing alike. She learned a lot about the houses that day, and more in depth meanings of the lyrics to the Sorting Hat's song. Mini loved being in Ravenclaw from the minute the house name was called. She was nervous about every story she ever heard from her brother. She felt so at ease with her housemates and she fell into a friendly circle with her classmates as well. She knows she could have been equally as happy in another house. She knows people are not friendlier to her because of the house she is in. She developed a knack for DAtDA, it was spell casting that came more natural to her than something like Transfiguration. She performed adequately in her Charms class, she always gave her best effort in Herbology as well. Potions seemed to be where she always suffered the worst of her setbacks. She was awful at remembering potion recipes and ingredient portions.

Personality

Emotional - Unsuspecting, Valourous, Compulsive, Reticent

Mini is a kind, and gentle soul with a vivid imagination. She likes making jewelry for her friends and as gifts for random strangers. She is happy to sell them people have that much interest. She likes the way she feels when someone wants to pay for something she made. She usually ends up giving things away for free more excited about meeting new people than making money by selling her merchandise. She is very creative always trying to think of new and inventive ways to mix magic and technology for the modern and the conservative wizard. She is a tad gullible, and falls for tricks or pranks, and things of that nature easily. She is a bully's dream come true because she will not run crying to an adult. She will absorb what has happened, and keep it to herself. Mini has had more than a few traumatic experiences in her past that have affected her life. She has Ordinal-linguistic personification, OLP for short, a form of synesthesia. For her ordinal numbers, days, months and letters are associated with personalities and/or genders. Mini sees the letter Y as a large intimidating man with a deep voice, and an infectious laugh. She see the number 31 as a skinny woman with bright red lips, and habit of crying over the littlest things. It goes on, and on each letter and number different from the last. At times it complicates her life because certain numbers or letter cannot be placed too closely together because they do not get along. She spaces out her writing s o m e t h i n g l i k e t h i s to give each of them room to breath.

Appearance

Mini is a typical plain Jane. She has fair skin, a pale pink complexion, and naturally straight light brown hair that falls past her shoulders. Mini's eyes are where her simple look ends. Her eyes are a sparkling grey broken up by little pockets of green all around the irises, and a hazel starburst pattern at the bottom of her pupil. Mini prefers to dress in casual comfortable muggle clothing. She loves sweaters, and blue jeans. She wears solid colors mostly, with an occasional "funky" pattern thrown in for variety. She does not dress up often, but when she does she tends to over do it because of her lack of experience, and she often feels overdressed when she gets to where she was going.
