Though she does have American Haley Pullos as her model, Rheine is of Asian heritage. She has the hereditary black hair and eyes of her family, but her skin tone is paler than the usual Asian's. Her body is slim and her stature is quite short, though her elders suspect she will have regular growth spurts during her adolescent years. Her hair is let down more times than not, and proves to be quite a hassle when needing combing. Makeup is something she prefers to live without, only using it sparingly during the occasional affair.

Rheine Description

"I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can't confront her own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead."

Rheine Gif 1
RheinePersonality


“She had this amazing capacity to turn sadness into anger and anger into action, which meant nothing ever kept her down for long.”

–KJ Ashworth


Rheine used to be a happy-go-lucky, innocent girl who tended to make friends with everyone. After suffering from the hands of cyberbullies, however, she saw a darker side to both life and humanity, inadvertently causing her to begin building up a shell.

When in the company of trusted friends and family, Rheine has a flippant attitude and a sarcastic sense of humor, constantly poking fun at them in a playful manner. She becomes more subdued, however, in the presence of strangers.

Her childhood...was not an ordinary one, and she was pushed to surpass her own limits in terms of education. This has left her with a "perfect or nothing" goal mindset that fortunately has been fading as she grows. Riddles irk her as she prefers to visualize the eccentric, the impossible, and the insane. This does not deter her lust for knowledge, always believing that whatever she learns is "not enough."

Experiences and hereditary traits have made her insecure, mistrustful, and defensive of both her person and her loved ones. One of her best friends' recent death has made an even bigger impact, and she now sees herself as responsible if she does nothing while knowing. She allows herself to be friendly and not aloof, but rarely does anyone ever truly break her walls and get deemed worthy enough to be referred to as a friend and not as an acquaintance. Her parents' strict actions have traumatized her to the point that she is frightened at the prospect of being hurt, be it mentally, physically, or verbally. It has also left her with an automatic impulse to hold back her full wrath, for she now realizes the terrifying fact that a human's worse enemy is their own person.

An avid reader she is, and more often than not does she follow her feelings rather than reason, and if you ask her, it hasn't screwed up her life too badly. With no qualms on lying (with a few exceptions), Rheine's morals are confused and warped. She openly acknowledges that some borders have to be crossed despite society's opinion, but at the same time secretly fears prosecution. Her resilience and stubbornness has proven more than a match for her superiors, often leaving them to desperately need some Advil. A tendency to hold grudges long-term has identified Rheine as a mostly loyal ally and deadly enemy, but there are times that she remembers to forgive. But she never forgets.

Doesn't look like it, eh? Nothing ever really "looks like it" these days. Yeah, she'll smile and laugh off jabs at her, or roll her eyes and come up with something to retort, depending on who you are.

But she cares. She really, really does. You could tell her the honest, honest truth that she isn't a horrible person and she'd just nod politely and pretend to believe you.

She's darned good at pretending she isn't. Which pretty much sums up everything.
It's not just insecurity anymore. She's tired of everything. She's tired of taking her meds. She's tired of every September. She's tired of...existing.

As stated beforehand, her morals are kind of warped and confusing, with the usual misleading good intentions that pave the road to hell. Rheine doesn't care too much about herself, almost to the point of being self-destructive. In a way, she seems like she doesn't care about other people at all as she often dismisses the possibility that they could actually, honestly care that she's hurt.

Sometimes she purposefully allows herself to drift apart from loved ones even if it hurts her because she believes she's "just a replacement until someone who can care more comes along."

Her trust is gained on very rare occasions, and once you shove it at her with a sting in the tail, there's pretty much no going back. Backstabbers can feel free to expect no love and some sabotage from her, depending on how badly she thinks they deserve it.

Hurt her, you scar her for the remainder of her life. Hurt somebody she cares about, she'll burn the whole universe down to find you, dig you up from the ashes, and then punish you.

Her lack of concern for consequences is pretty alarming. She isn't very subtle about many things...but quite open with others that almost seem trivial until you actually realize that they're the ones you should pay attention to.
[[File:|center]]


Rheine sincerely believes in loyalty. Honesty, not so much. And as she likes to quote from Saracen Rue..."Honesty is, honestly, the best policy. But when honesty doesn’t work, lie, and lie convincingly."

Though she would probably NEVER admit it, she's fairly certain love exists. That people actually do care for each other. For the most part, she likes to look at it from a third person's view and has the tendency to laugh at blushing people.

As for religion, she used to be Catholic, then converted to Christianity, then lost faith when she was twelve. She still believes there's a God...but doesn't necessarily believe He cares anymore. Currently, she considers herself a theist.

It's kind of hard to sway her beliefs, whatever they might be, and proves herself once again as a stubborn Aries.

Gryffindor

Gryffindor Crest (Gif)

Gryffindor? Rheine doesn't know what the Hat saw in her. Gryffindors are noble and brave...and she most definitely thinks she's neither. How the heck is that being a Gryffindor? Slytherin she would have understood, given her family background. But Gryffindor? Why? She doubts she'll ever live up to that, and even until now people are saying she's a Ravenclaw. Too bad nobody will ever find out that the real reason behind her adamant refusal...How can she ever deserve to be in the same House as the best friend she killed? No.

If there's a thing or two that's remotely Gryffindor about her, it would be her headstrong and reckless ways.

RheineHistory

Undergoing a major re-write, not started yet because I'm lazy. Of course, it's pretty well known that magic doesn't only exist in Britain, and Hogwarts isn't the only magic school out there. And Rheine's story doesn't start in the 21st century, nope.

In the Philippines, back when Spain first conquered it, a rather old wizarding family resided in one of the few partly magical communities 'round the globe. It was a pureblood family of fanatics, who believed that Muggles were filth and yadda yadda yadda. Despite usually being halfway around the globe from all the action, the family did quite support all the dark wizards and witches that went and past. At times, family members even participated in the purging of Muggles. The family of Niesa managed to stay "pure and untainted" till the end of the 20th century.

The time that had passed had allowed them to collect dark artifacts, spells, and the whole lot. By the 20th century, their collection encompassed no less than a million objects, including spells and whatnot. They may not have had the largest collection in the world, or even Asia, but they had amassed quite a fair bit and were content with it.

Then the rebellion happened.

Year 1979. The youngest members of the family, the final generation of purebloods - they all rebelled and married into Muggle and "tainted" lineages. The elders were unable to do anything but watch as their precious bloodline finally met its "end", being frail and wizened. They managed a few jinxes, hexes, and curses on their children's spouses, but none did any permanent harm. Except for one single curse.

Jose Niesa was one of the eldest of the siblings, and he had married a Muggle named Anita. Unfortunately, Anita had been the one to receive the strongest curse. Their first child was stillborn, the second and third dead within hours, and their fourth followed. The fifth, Jose managed to weaken the curse well enough to see it survived. However, their fifth was a runt. They named him Shem. The children that followed Shem were much stronger than their eldest living sibling, as it seemed the curse weakened each time a new child was born.

Shem was one of the first half-blood children in the Niesa family for centuries. Jose tried to keep all his children from magic, insisting on limiting its use, as all it did was "tear love and family apart." Nevertheless, Shem's father homeschooled all his children in the ways of magic. However, every child besides Shem did agree with their father. They wanted nothing to do with their heritage. Shem was the special case. He showed interest and talent in his studies and excelled so well that Jose allowed him a wand, something none of his sisters and brothers had ever received. Of course, after abandoning the pureblood mania of their ancestors, Jose's parents had tried all they could to remove their children from their wills. The other elders did the same. Their efforts succeeded narrowly, and they had managed to find a loophole in the law, and had all the wealth they had accumulated over the years to be only be accessed when their eldest son's grandchild came of age. Jose and his cousins and brothers and sisters were forced into poverty.

The dark family's wealth was more than enough for each elder. There had been seven of them, including Jose's father. But now it was inaccessible.

Shem and his siblings tried to do their best in order to help their parents. Shem went as far as abandoning magic, as it couldn't help them in the Muggle world where they now lived. He tried to become an engineer, but funds and technicalities forced upon him a teaching position, which barely sufficed for his family's needs.

Shem was eventually married to a Muggle woman named Janissa, whose grandfather had been a Muggle-born wizard. The gift of magic had not been given to Janissa, but it was given to their child. The dangerous curse Anita had suffered had weakened with every birth, barely existing now. But it was now passed onto Janissa, as the curse was meant to halt the half-bloods from reproducing with Muggles or tainted lineages. It was weakened to the point that Shem and Janissa simply could not conceive a child. For once in his adult life, Shem took up his dusty old wand and did his best with his basic knowledge to weaken the curse further. Fortunately it worked.

Rheine Kassyra Niesa was born on March 24, 2010 in a local Muggle hospital. She was healthy, but suffered jaundice that was quickly fixed by the Muggle magic we call modern technology. Shem was somewhat disappointed, as he wanted a son, but nevertheless was overjoyed.

The young half-blood excelled quite well in her studies (she was also homeschooled.) At an early age, her parents discovered that she dearly loved the magic in her books, wishing with everything that it was real. It was real, of course, but Shem feared that she would fall back into the world of magic if he ever told her of their heritage. Thus, he and Janissa kept quiet. But both parents could not deny that Rheine was magic.

She began to show signs at the mere age of 5. Shem was none the less horrified to realize his daughter had quite the affinity for jinxes and hexes, what she believed was "karma." If the little girl felt wronged, the wrongdoer tended to have little mishaps. Nothing major - just a little trip here, spilled liquids there - and barely noticeable, but Shem saw and realized. Age seven, Shem's fear increased as Rheine unknowingly began to use it when she was angry. Her magic had began to raise alarmingly out of control. Technology seemed to malfunction more when Rheine was around, which really miffed her as as she frequented the web.

However, after being severely cyberbullied at age ten, her magic seemed to dampen. Shem wasn't aware that his daughter had been so affected, and was too relieved by the sudden anticlimax to notice anything was wrong. Then everything went all wrong for Shem when Janissa asked for an anullment.

Their love had faded a long, long time ago, but they had stayed together for Rheine's sake. Now that she was ten, Janissa believed her daughter could take it. Shem relented, and they split up, much to Rheine's horror. For almost two years, Janissa and Rheine lived at Janissa's sister and Rheine's aunt Maycie's house. Then once Maycie got married, the mother and daughter had to move back to Shem's house with nowhere to go. It was indefinitely awkward for Shem, but he'd do anything for his daughter. Shem and Janissa stayed on friendly terms, which was a relief for Rheine. So focused on other things the two parents were, they never even noticed their daughter slowly falling into a depression. Shem was fully convinced that Rheine's magic had been dampened drastically and couldn't exactly do anything anymore, and thus paid lesser attention than before.

Rheine and Janissa barely spent a year back at Shem's house. Janissa got engaged to a Finnish tourist named Fabian Kögler. Papers were easily set, and by December 2023, Rheine and Janissa were all set for England. Shem was saddened by this quite a lot, not being able to see his daughter anymore, but Fabian, knowing of Rheine's protests, offered to pay for Rheine to return for two months a year. The deal was made, and Rheine, her mother, and new stepfather headed for England right after Christmas.

Christmas was a bit awkward in Rheine's opinion. Unbeknownst to Janissa and Shem, her magic was growing more stable as she gained better knowledge of what was inflicting her mental health - bipolar depression. At one point, she managed to get diagnosed indirectly with a friend's help. It was confirmed.

Living in Lincolnshire, England wasn't much of a hassle, as Rheine's first language was English. It was a bit strange, however, to hear that strange British accent every time she went outside. She herself had a bit of an accent, but it quickly became almost imperceptible as time passed. During the months of March and April, Rheine visited her father and stayed with him. He had a dog now, and was quite happy to see her. Shem was too engrossed in spending as much time as possible with his little princess that he didn't notice how her magic was still getting stronger with each day. She returned from her vacation, and pretty much fainted when an owl swooped into her bedroom and dropped a letter.

Damn. Took them long enough to realize there was a witch in the household.

Rheine immediately made contact with her father, and the latter was partly shocked, partly mortified, and partly guilty. Realizing that it had upset his daughter most thoroughly, he tried to compensate for his actions by sending all the books that had been in Jose's possession before the rebellion to Rheine. The latter herself nearly spilled the beans of her mental state when yelling at her dad, but managed to stop herself before it was too late. The books turned out to be rather precious, few of the rare bits of the Niesa family's collection, and not all of them were even all dark magic! Rheine proved to be an adept learner, though the fact that it was MAGIC she was learning might have spurred her to work her best.

She had learned some dark magic as well, obviously not any of the major law-destroying ones, but some of the mostly annoying and somewhat damaging. Rheine managed to forgive her father, and after explaining the situation to her stepfather and mother (turned out Fabian had a Muggle-born cousin and took it rather calmly), she got her official school supplies from Diagon Alley, and spent the rest of her free time poring over everything, trying to make up for the last 3-4 years of obliviousness. And when the day came, she headed for King's Cross station with her family, who watched her disappear into the brick border. Rheine was more than delighted to find out from a passing wizarding family that she had to run through a wall. IT WAS A WALL. BLOODY BRILLIANT.

4th Year

Rheine arrived at Hogwarts via train, meeting nothing and no one. Due to having missed 3 years of schooling, she had struggled to catch up during the months of waiting by reading and re-reading all the books she had gotten on magic.

At the Sorting Ceremony, it took some time for the Sorting Hat to figure out where to put Rheine, but after a few devastatingly long minutes, she was Sorted into Gryffindor.

She managed to catch up with her peers, excelling decently for someone who'd been in the dark for most of her remembered life. However, she was branded a know-it-all at the start of term for not giving her fellow classmates a chance to answer. It bothered her greatly, so she attempted to chill out a bit. Drama came far too quickly for her liking. During her first Potions class, fellow fourth year Casper Gideon walked out, offended when the professor contradicted her opinion. At one point Rheine joined in the argument, siding with her peer, but eventually let her handle it on her own. In the process, she also earned her first detention.

Hardly two weeks in and her first year at Hogwarts was already proving to be quite eventful.

Her constant "hogging" of answers eventually led top student Faith Bagman to lash out at her in the middle of a DADA lesson, the latter feeling that she was trying to usurp the title. The tension had been building for a while, and nobody couldn't say they didn't see it coming. Rheine walked out after making a melodramatic scene of her own, genuinely admitting that she looked up to the Slytherin pureblood and then facing punishment later by the DADA professor and coincidentally then Head of Slytherin House, Nora Déonté. She and Faith managed to get off with a warning, but the latter remained angry at her for no clear reason. Understanding that it wasn't only her know-it-all attitude bugging the Slytherin, Rheine tried to pry the reason out of her during their meeting with Nora, but failed and let it go for the time being.

Her start of term was certainly plagued by events, but not all of them were bad. She became acquainted with Pelagia Liquero, a Gryffindor dorm mate, and Winston Wolf, a Hufflepuff in her year. While working her arse off in the library and poring over sixth year textbooks to distract herself from her current dilemmas, Victoria Iglesias stumbled upon her book fortress, and both parties were delighted to realize that there was another Filipina in the school. Shortly after admitting her doubts on getting on the team as a reserve due to her problems with Faith, Rheine received a letter from Thomas Bagman, confirming that she was on the team. His reply was merely late on account of studying for N.E.W.Ts and classes. She and Tori then goofed off, instantly establishing a small acquaintance/friendship.

Tragedy refused to stop striking, however, and the next time it struck, it struck home. Rheine had been chatting with Owen Connor, a second year Ravenclaw, when her owl Saona flew into view. As Owen departed, Saona delivered to her master a letter from her aunt Maycie. The letter's contents were jarring, and Rheine involuntarily let out a half-scream that made Owen turn on his heel and check on her. Her cousin Reynie had been attacked by an unknown magical creature, but Maycie confessed her fears that it might have been a werewolf. Reynie had been diagnosed as critically injured in a local magical hospital in the Philippines, and Rheine briefly lost it, her magic acting and cracking the ground. She left the scene afterwards, somewhat comforted by Owen's words.

Her spirits rose along with fellow Gryffindors when Gryffindor won the first Quidditch match of the season, with Victoria Iglesias body-blocking a bludger becoming rather memorable.

During the Christmas holidays (which she had openly despised since moving to Britain), she visited her cousin in PH, who was now in a magical coma of a sort. During her second visit while Reynie was now back at home semi-conscious (during a full moon), her cousin transformed into his werewolf form, nearly killing Rheine. She managed to get away with the help of two other adult wizards who had been assigned to Reynie, but did not remain unscathed. The short encounter left a large claw scar on her shoulder, one that would never fade.

After returning to Britain nearing the end of the hols, Rheine encountered Cecilie Eskildsen in the Transfiguration section of Flourish and Blotts. She was still wary, but gradually relaxed despite the other girl's indifference. Their short conversation and Cecilie's blatant interest in Animagi compelled her to ask what Animagus Ceci thought she would be. This led to Cecilie revealing she had been studying on how to become one, and Rheine mentally noted that she herself wanted to be one too, due to Reynie's condition. They continued their book-hunting, and Rheine helped the Slytherin girl find a final book of interest to her when Alessia Eskildsen, Cecilie's mother, came to scold her daughter for being late. Rheine jumped in, lying through her teeth that Cecilie had helped her find a book that explained Cecilie's lateness, which prompted the surprised mother to ask who she was. Rheine introduced herself, and after an even shorter exchange of words, the Eskildsens left, with Alessia apologizing if her daughter was giving her a hard time once the aforementioned was out of earshot. She revealed that other children had treated Cecilie seemingly badly when she was a child, and was really worried for her despite Cecilie hating it when that happened.

Rheine began neglecting her health since before the holidays and kept it up upon returning to Hogwarts. She had roughly twenty eight hours of sleep during the first two weeks, resolving not to rest until she finished whatever she was aiming for. When she was switched in for the upcoming Gryffindor vs. Hufflepuff match, she took a rare break the day before and slept. Despite their team's attempts, the badgers won and Rheine ended up with a concussion. Now fairly certain (or is that her nonexistent self-esteem talking?) she wasn't getting back on the team, she ordered a Firebolt anyway for shizz and giggles.

Her attempts on brewing a Wolfsbane potion were redoubled and tripled, and her potential in the subject finally began bearing fruit as she self-studied her way to the 7th year level potions. She was sent in for the Gryffindor vs. Ravenclaw match, surprisingly not benched despite her insane antics in the previous game. Happily scoring quite a few times this time, Gryffindor eventually won, coming second for the Quidditch Cup.

Everything went well until one day at Herbology.

Rheine arrived late during the class, but luckily the professor didn't seem to notice. Due to a small clash with some Slytherins in some abandoned hallway, she was bleeding profusely by a few lacerations on her right arm, her left palm split in half, and the hems of her robes were singed. At one point she was confused by one of Faith's answers on the topic (Orchideous/Orchideus), and the latter snapped at her, rudely telling her to "get some sleep more often and start paying attention to when people answer things." Her bipolar depression combined with her extreme lack of sleep caused her to retort even after the professor took points, thus earning her her third detention.

A long conversation later in detention ultimately led to why she was sleeping so little. As the reason was to help her werewolf cousin (who'd be persecuted in their home country, since the prejudice for "half-breeds" went to the extremes there), Rheine made her best attempts to lie but failed, and for the second time, she had to face the Headmistress. No major results occured and Rheine left.

Later on, their end year Herbology project began and Rheine requested permission to care for an aconite plant, a 7th year level poisonous species. Professor Prince put the pieces together about Reynie, and offered her a deal in private - she take care of herself and he'd make sure to get the Wolfsbane potion sent to Reynie every month. She agreed and pondered Faith's hate of her out loud before leaving.

The school term ended happily, much to her relief. Victoria invited her to watch the Quidditch World Cup with her family, and after persuading her father, she came.

5th Year

Many changes came prior fifth year. For one, her cousin Reynie came over to Britain due to his furry little problem, much to Rheine's delight. The Quidditch World Cup occurred during the summer, where Rheine met quite a few people. Having stayed at Victoria's tent, she became acquainted with Amelia, Tori's older sister.

She roamed around with Tori, then encountering one of the Finchburg Fitches. Afterwards, the fifteen year old decided to explore on her own in an attempt to get used to the claustrophobic spaces. This time she encountered a yearmate and House mate of hers - Boyce Schmidt. The two got along quite well, chatting till night fell. They had...an interesting conversation, to say the least, and Boyce wasn't weirded out by her driveling like people commonly were. Also, for the record, she finally figured out that she was capable of blushing instead of blanching/paling all the time. That sentence alone sort of explains everything, doesn't it?

Tori was pretty much freaking out by the time she got back...but she managed to shake off the older girl's motherly concerns. Soon enough she met Boyce again...really early in the morning with an annoying downpour ongoing as he was looking for his younger sister Sadie. They chatted a while, and after he noticed her shivering insisted on giving her his coat. Parting ways again, both forgot about the coat until later on.

Due to this, she had to search for his family's tent in vain the whole day after. Unfortunately she had to resort to sneaking into the Harriers' tent, and ended up getting caught by his older brother Ansel. The conversation soon turned into...somewhat of harassment after a couple of weird assumptions from both Ansel and Blake, who arrived soon enough in the middle of the conversation. Two other Harriers re-entered, the first telling the two Schmidts off and the latter wondering what the racket was. Rheine just left when the opportunity came, feeling quite terrible all the while.

While she was venting her anger out on a tree, she encountered Boyce again and nearly hit him with a rock by accident. She actually slapped the guy, as according to his siblings he had gotten sick from not wearing the coat he gave her. Regretting it almost immediately, they once more had a long conversation that ended up with her having to borrow his coat again. They ran into Blake and Ansel while he was showing her where to look for his tent, and by some miraculous anticlimax both apologized (albeit reluctantly on Ansel's part.) Upon parting ways, he insisted she keep his coat this time and just return it to him at Hogwarts.

It was pretty straightforward after that. She returned to her stepdad's estate for the rest of the summer, though she did visit Kale at one point. The long wait finally ended, and September 1 shot her and Reynie off to Platform 9 & 3/4.

Victoria and her met up in the Gryffindor carriage's main compartment and shared some leche flan the older girl had brought. Rheine got up at least twice to head for the trolley, where she came upon her younger cousin and afterwards, Boyce. The encounters involved more blushing and chocolate. (No, not that way, get your mind of the gutter.) The latter part was with her cousin happily eating out the trolley.

The subject of the del Castillos (and some other noble family) transferring to Hogwarts faded from her mind shortly after the first DAtDA lesson of the term. Tori had informed her about them on the train. Soon enough, she obliviously met none other than Hazelle del Castillo, la princesa de la filipinas. The girl was sweet to her, and Rheine was pleased to know that there was one more Filipino at school.

What was with everyone thinking she and Boyce were dating?! Somehow Rheine managed to get through the start of term without murdering anyone (Cecilie, NOT excluded, thank you very much.) It didn't help when even a nice first year thought they were in an arranged marriage or something (Dear Merlin, what was with kids these days?!) when she and Boyce helped out the kid with people problems.

Despite the fact that Cecilie liked to tease her about the subject, she eventually found herself thinking of the Slytherin as a friend than an acquaintance during one of her potioneering exploits. However, the happy start of term began its downward spiraling when her hidden anxieties about OWLs and Reynie's lycanthropy started to take its toll. Sleeping and eating less and less, the fact that she hated Christmas didn't help her.

Events flowed in flux along with her moods. There were days when she was perfectly fine, and then there were the days when she refused to meet anyone's eye. She felt that her meds weren't doing anything and nearly threw out the rest of them. No matter how much she hated the festive season though, her spirits lifted slightly during the gift exchanges. She did feel like she had embarrassed herself though, when she on an impulse hugged Boyce in thanks, but the awkward moment was propitiously overlooked in the days to come.

Any positive effect break had had on her dissipated completely shortly after. A poor choice of words caused Rheine to fall out with Reynie for a few agonizingly long weeks. Then the debilitating state of her relationships clinched its climax with one quandary and hit rock bottom. With infinitesimal patience sparking tempers because of the imminent OWLs and NEWTs, she and Tori slammed headfirst into an argument and ultimately ended their friendship. Perfectly aware that it was completely her fault, Rheine skirted her way around her now ex-friend, too ashamed to apologize.

Once she had managed to patch things up with her cousin, she heeded his words and took time to try and help and figure out herself. She succeeded for at least marginally- because she finally stopped being in denial and realized she did like Boyce that way. Not that she would ever ever ever tell any of her friends that. During one Hogsmeade trip, she, yet on another impulse, kissed him by the Shrieking Shack. Things escalated, she discovered he liked her back, he discovered vice versa, and they sort of started dating. It was probably one of the few happier moments of her fifth year.

Her OWLs were a fairly good example of hard work and stress - Rheine got almost Os in everything. Nothing else eventful occurred until the approach of summer break.

6th Year

Waging war against her mother every single day drained Rheine to an extent she herself doubted she would ever reach. As a result, she stole away from the estate for a good two weeks and accepted Boyce's offer to stay with him. They had a small argument on where she would sleep (she won, and slept on the couches.) Things were going smoothly, then it came to a row of mountainous ridges Rheine didn't believe she would ever recover from. Note the past tense.

Boyce's father was reported dead during her stay. Feeling like she had nothing to contribute to help, she steeled herself and returned to her mother's home. Unbeknownst to anyone, even her own cousin Reynie, she had started self-harming in July. She'd refrained from doing so while she had been camping out at Boyce's, but resumed when she had left.

Everything went downhill from there. Rheine stopped taking her meds, only doing so when prompted by either of the two worried (and rightfully so) Fernandez kids. She and Cecilie wrote back and forth over the summer, and even met up a couple of times for ice cream (naturally). Rheine didn't even realize she'd been doing it at the time, but she was slowly pushing everyone away - hell, even Cecilie.

She encountered Boyce in Eeylops' Magical Menagerie nearing the end of the fatal summer. They had a strained conversation, and though they technically had never broken up, their status was anchored more clearly afterwards. To Rheine's utmost surprise, a letter containing a Prefect's Badge drifted her way. With her record, she had thoroughly doubted the possibility. Maybe the new Gryffindor Head was just forgiving?

While searching for a fashionably late Rina, Rheine had her first encounter with Celyn Edillon. Despite her fallout with Tori some time back, she had never had the heart to throw away her ex-best friend's Christmas present, a history book on ARMP. This ensured that she knew about the House of Edillon, how they had been the bodyguards for the House of Niesa, and how they had been handed the position when the Niesa bloodline had been exiled. It was a surprisingly pleasant conversation with Celyn.

When September rolled around, the tragic occurrences made a comeback. BPD worsened things for Rheine. Self-harm was now an escape and a reassurance that she could still feel pain. After all, how was she sure that she could when inside she was so...dead? Boyce was dead. One more person who had left her. One more person who said they could never do that. One less person worth living for. Rheine perfected the art of fake smiles, and nobody could ever guess that she spent midnight hours down at the harbor, slicing the pain away. Cecilie was there for consolation, and that extended Rheine's life just enough for the rest of the year.

7th Year

Rheine never reached her seventh year. She never left a suicide note either. A couple of last words, and a will. Nothing else. It took the authorities less than 12 hours to locate her down at a Muggle harbor, an empty potion bottle instead of a pulse in her hand.

RheineSkills

Concentration and Speed Reading

7 years of extensive training from a Muggle supplementary school program (from age 4-11) has taught Rheine a few tricks. Her concentration is exceptionally better than most people her age, and her reading comprehension is only deterred slightly by her speed. The former allows her to practice and learn spells more easily, and the latter enables her to cram faster prior classes.

*OOC Note: This is not an exotic ability, as the unnamed program implied exists in real life and is available for everyone as long as they have the money.

Potions

Rheine is unusually good at potions despite its similarity to Muggle cooking (which she fantastically sucks at.) She managed to catch up to 3 years of schoolwork on it, and excelled easily at the subject. Her generally terrible memory somehow allows her to recall potion recipes, ingredients, their uses, and other potion-related matters with nearly perfect clarity. It's the only subject which theories she can comprehend at the first try. Currently, she's studying up on how to make the ridiculously difficult Wolfsbane Potion for her cousin.

Mythology

Mythology has always been a hobby of hers. She's kept up with it despite all the remedial studying and cramming she's had to do, and is proud to be now really efficient at Roman, Greek and Egyptian mythology. She's halfway there on Norse, and has begun on various others.

Dark Arts

Rheine's more than just "well equipped" with knowledge of the Dark Arts - she has a natural aptitude for it. It's not unusual, with her being descended from a line of Dark wizards and witches, but it's certainly disturbing, though she can't do anything about it. Even her childhood bursts of magic did more harm than help.

Recently she's been going into more in-depth research, even sneaking into Knockturn Alley at one point. Done mainly in vain hope that she may find something else to help with Reynie's furry little problem, surprisingly she has found no love for the horrible magic and simply feels a cold disdain, completely immune to the pull and lust for power. This has also sort of boosted her self-esteem a bit, slowly coming to terms that she might not be such a horrible person after all.

Defense Against the Dark Arts

Her abilities in this subject are nearly on par with her abilities in Potions. Maybe it's because of the fact that it's closely related to the Dark Arts, but even her wand predicts that she is or will be a really good duelist.

Early disciplinary methods have taught Rheine, for the most part, to be dutiful on the subject of her studies. Though the library gets crowded quite a lot, she is capable of withstanding horribly long study sessions without getting too bored. For someone who only became aware of the wizarding world at age fourteen, she has managed to keep up with her peers and even beat them in certain aspects. With a practical bent, few her age are on par with her in terms of spellwork.

RheineRelationships

Shem Niesa

"Don't be afraid of what you can be. Embrace it, but don't let yourself drown in it. That was our family's mistake. We drowned."

–Shem

Shem is Rheine's 45 year old father. Despite moving away, Rheine remained a "daddy's girl" and maintained a relatively close relationship with her parent. They both share the general dislike of Janissa, which has brought them closer. Their father-daughter relationship was so strong that Rheine inadvertently forced Fabian to allow her to visit her father for a duration of two months every year.

Her summer visits have become more and more strained with time. They aren't as close as before, and there is little they can talk about without treading over the subject of magic. Rheine represents the world Shem has tried so hard to cut from his life and blood, and it still hasn't sunken in that she chose to reconnect it.

Janissa Kögler

"I did it for you."

–Janissa

Janissa is Rheine's 41 year old mother. Their mother-daughter relationship is nowhere near close, seeing as the older woman spends most of her time gallivanting across the globe.

For most of Rheine's known life, Janissa insisted that Rheine do things her way. This resulted in severe rebellious behavior from the latter. Janissa refused to admit she was in fact sometimes manipulative and verbally abusive towards her daughter. It was also Janissa's idea to get annulled from Shem, which Rheine remains angry at her for.

Fabian Kögler

"You're a good kid, Rheine. Me and your mother appreciate that."

–Fabian

Rheine doesn't exactly dislike her stepfather, but she doesn't like him at the same time. They have a bit of a professional relationship witfh Janissa being Fabian's wife and Rheine's mother, and are at least polite towards each other. Fabian also reluctantly allowed Rheine to visit her father in the Philippines, which Rheine is dearly grateful for.

Maycie Ilan

"Take care of yourself - and you and I both know quite well that your mother is very bad at expressing herself. Look after her for me, will you?"

–Maycie

As a rather sweet aunt, Rheine deeply cares for Maycie. The latter was kind enough to provide a home for Rheine and her mother for almost two years. Rheine knows how to look past Maycie's alcohol addiction and see who her aunt really is. They remain on friendly terms, even after Reynie became a werewolf.

Reynard Waire-Ilan

"Will you come back?"

–Reynie

Despite being prone to temper tantrums, Reynie is dearly loved by his cousin. They are extremely close, and act more like brother and sister than cousins. Reynie, Rheine was told by Maycie, might be a Muggle-born after exhibiting possible acts of magic, and this was soon proven after surviving the werewolf attack. After Rheine left for England, Reynie was known to be more sulky. They stayed in contact with each other via owl, which Reynie found amusing.

Nearing Christmas break, Reynie was attacked by a werewolf and hospitalized, officially comatose. Rheine was frantic and restless until she managed to visit. Reynie fortunately became semi-conscious near the end of Rheine's visit, but on the full moon he transformed and nearly killed his cousin if it were not for two wizards who had been positioned to watch over him. The incident left Rheine with a vivid claw mark scar on her shoulder, though Reynie can only remember flashes of it and thus is unaware of the situation. They kept in close touch, and their bond had only strengthened with Rheine determined to learn how to make a Wolfsbane potion for his sake.

During March 2025, Rheine made a deal with her Herbology professor to ensure his safety. It was lucky that she did, as shortly after the end of term, Reynie was forced to move to Britain for his safety. Overjoyed as she was, Rheine could not help but worry for Reynie and his mental state.

But Rheine forgot to worry about herself, which soon enough enraged her cousin. They had a small fallout soon after Christmas, and Rheine can't help but take the blame for being selfish.

Xyza Niesa

Oh, yay, long lost half-sister story twist. It's unfortunately not accompanied with tearful hugs or heartbreaking reconciliation. Rheine's relationship with Xyza has always been distant, and occasionally strained. It was Janissa's fault, of course. She insisted on separating the two lest, God forbid, they get close to each other, as much as possible. She succeeded partially, and Rheine's no more inclined to open up to Xyza than any other human being. A chance will be given, but to be frank, Rheine's willing to bet it's another invitation for another person to desert her. Just like everyone else did.

...

Lyssa Mae Megat

"Do what I couldn't do, Rheine. Break the glass."

–Lyssa

Lyssa was probably the only person who could see through Rheine's kaleidoscopic veil. Rheine met her online several months prior to her move to England, and the two stuck together like glue despite their age difference (with Lyssa being 5 years older.)

Upon Rheine receiving her Hogwarts letter, Lyssa coincidentally decided to admit to her supposedly Muggle friend that she was in fact a witch. This likely would have been a breach of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy if Rheine had not turned out to be a witch herself. Once Lyssa found out, she explained her real history to the girl who pretty much was a little sister to her.

Lyssa had graduated from Hogwarts from Ravenclaw House, and had recently started working for the Ministry of Magic of her home country as a member of the Department of International Magical Cooperation. She had inhuman pain tolerance, the highest in wizarding history itself, and was thus immune to the Cruciatus Curse. An accomplished Legilimency and Occlumency user, it was a surprise to all when she didn't go for the Department of Mysteries.

At one point Lyssa postponed her business appointments to visit Rheine, Kale, and Kale's girlfriend. Rheine had begged her to come, and the memory of that day is her Patronus memory, though in contrast she is reduced to tears whenever she remembers. Indirectly, Rheine caused Lyssa's death.

Less than a month before Rheine left for Hogwarts (and thus disabling all contact as Muggle technology goes haywire when exposed to too much magic), Lyssa was killed in Russia when she and two of her workmates were targeted by wizard assassins for a reason still unknown to Rheine. Her immunity to the Cruciatus Curse helped her for most of the battle, but she was ultimately defeated brutally. According to reports, she'd taken five of her attackers to the grave with her, and had been the last one standing.

Rheine received an email a week later; the message of Lyssa's death being distributed to Muggle and wizarding friends using various means. Another week later, she was sent a recording (no doubt by the murderer) of Lyssa's last screams, which coincidentally included her nickname for Rheine. Rheine turned it in to the wizarding authorities almost immediately, but from then on began to blame herself for Lyssa's death. Devastated at the loss of the sister she never had, she carried her grief to Hogwarts, successfully disguising it.

Rheine also began to carry around a picture of Lyssa in her pocket, which she spoke to when events turned out for better or worse.

KJ Ashworth

"I lost Tanya. I'm not going to lose another sister."

–KJ

KJ's another of Rheine's supposedly Muggle friends whom she met online. He was the friend who helped her get diagnosed for her mental disorder, seeing as he lived in Lincolnshire as well. Shortly before Rheine left for Hogwarts, he revealed that he was in fact a Durmstrang student (on his 6th year) to her. He also taught her the basics of a Quidditch - the only sport where he never went easy on her.

When KJ was a kid, he and his little sister were caught in a car pileup on a highway. His dad, who had been driving, and him were relatively unharmed save for a few broken bones and whatnot. However, his sister died from internal bleeding while they waited for rescue. This resulted in severe trauma, and KJ became extremely overprotective. He eventually got over his phobia of cars and driving, but the thought of losing another loved one never ceased to frighten him.

Rheine apparently reminded him of Tanya (maybe a tad too much), so he's rather protective of her. They share a tightly knit sister-brother relationship, though contact is difficult between the two magic schools.

KJ and her met up during the Christmas hols, playing Quidditch. He was delighted that she was playing reserve seeker for Gryffindor, and hinted that he might have to transfer to Hogwarts for his 7th year.

After the end of term, Kale owled her, explaining that he had proposed to his girlfriend and were getting married after graduation. Rheine was obviously invited, though she had declined the bridesmaid offer because "I can't dance. Plus dresses are overrated." Shortly before the start of her fifth year, Kale's fiancée was determined to be pregnant.

Victoria Iglesias

For a Gryffindor girl 2 years her elder, Tori gets along amazingly with Rheine. Soon after her scrape with Faith in the DADA office, Rheine had gone to the library to study and distract herself from the current events. Victoria stumbled upon her when she got lost, and her Tagalog mutterings caught Rheine's attention. The two immediately took a liking to each other, being from the same country, and they started a conversation in their native tongue. At one point, they got to Quidditch, with Rheine worrying about not being able to play due to her feud with Faith and the latter being the current Gryffindor captain's sister. Victoria actually offered to try and persuade Thomas into letting her play, and Rheine was drastically touched by the offer.

Rheine was most impressed by Vic's body-block in the Gryffindor vs Slytherin match, cheering for the team. Victoria returned the favor later when she was benched, watching Rheine play during the Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff match, despite the loss. In Gryffindor's final match against Ravenclaw, the two Chasers partnered up proved to be a deadly combination, and Lady Luck favored them that day, allowing them to come in second for the Quidditch Cup and win the House Cup.

They later encountered each other in the Hogwarts kitchens and bonded over their love of mangoes. They had such a good time that they forgot about curfew, and very nearly got caught as they rushed back. During the conversation, Victoria invited Rheine to meet with her family at the Quidditch World Cup, and she accepted. During the QWC, Tori was the only other person besides Boyce's siblings to begin to tease Rheine about things. At one point, they made a promise to each other that the other would be a bridesmaid at their wedding.

Rheine began to see her as a sister figure, but felt like a traitor to Lyssa in doing so. Her emotional turmoil caused ripples to morph into waves, ultimately shattering their friendship. She knows it's her fault, and her damned mental state, but she believes she's hurt Tori enough, so might as well suffer through it.

Cecilie Eskildsen

"Are students allowed to skim books during lessons?"

–Cecilie

Rheine personally hadn't spoken to the Slytherin girl when Cecilie ganged up on her with Faith. It was Cecilie's underlying snide comment that made Rheine lose it and walk out of DADA class bitterly, believing Faith had already won.

During the Christmas hols, Rheine encountered her in the Transfiguration section of Flourish and Blotts. She discovered that Cecilie was also learning to become an Animagus, and they had a short conversation. For some reason, she also lied on Cecilie's behalf when Alessia, the latter's mother, came to scold her daughter for being late on their rendezvous. Once Cecilie was out of earshot, Alessia apologized on her daughter's behalf in the case she was giving Rheine a hard time, revealing that Cecilie had been mistreated by other children when she was little.

Rheine had found a limited edition book on Animagi during her stay in the PH, and remembered to send it shortly after the Christmas hols to Cecilie, believing she might find it interesting. The Slytherin, in turn, sent her a book on theories of extinct Animagi.

They met again in Hogwarts, in the Potions-Mixing room, where Rheine did her more dangerous experiments. Cecilie gave her a booklet on how to figure out her Animagus form before going on to try and catch up with Potions lessons (which she had been skipping.) Rheine eventually passed out from both sleep deprivation and exhaustion caused by the Animagus recognition potion, and was then carted off to the hospital wing by Cecilie.

By the Viaduct, the two met once more, both having received letters from their family. Cecilie mentioned that her grandmother was dying, and they exchanged problems before moving on to other subjects.

The two didn't encounter each other for the most part during the rest of the school year, and summer came before they made contact via letter. A compelled Rheine decided to write to the girl, who revealed that she was awfully close to becoming a fully-fledged Animagus...and that her grandmother wasn't doing so well. Deciding not to pry, Rheine didn't reply...and found herself to be looking forward to seeing the private Slytherin girl again. They became partners for the first DAtDA lesson upon the start of school term. With Rheine summoning the snake that inadvertently caused Cecilie to lose the duel, surprisingly the latter kept it as a pet, seen later when they met in the Potions-Mixing room yet again. There was a brief teasing session spawned by Cecilie about Rheine and Boyce, but soon faded.

She introduced Cecilie to Valentin, an ARMP noble and a new acquaintance, shortly after Christmas. Cecilie's sort of taken up a babysitting role in Rheine's life, seeing as she's constantly preventing the girl from blowing herself up. Regardless, Cecilie is definitely a friend in Rheine's book. Anybody who can handle her explosive moods is a good person.

Boyce Schmidt

As if her life couldn't get anymore chaotic, a brunette with blue eyes simply had to walk in, didn't he? Ugh. Rheine hate-hate-hate-hates cliché, but apparently it's a lot better in real life. They were friends (or were they ever really?), and now they're dating, and frankly Rheine's nerves are frazzled because holy guacomole how did he ever end up liking her back?


Casper Gideon

Currently Casper doesn't seem to have any evident opinion on Rheine. However, Rheine agreed with the Ravenclaw that Muggles are capable of brewing potions, and cannot help but silently approve of her walkout during the first Potions class of the year, despite it being somewhat uncalled for.

They partnered up for Transfiguration, and Rheine has decided she likes the girl.

Owen Connor

During a day of her fourth year, while wandering the Hogwarts Grounds and poring over an advanced Potions textbook, Rheine promptly bumped into Owen Connor, a second year Ravenclaw. They conversed a while, getting along quite well until things took a turn for the theatrics. Owen broke into tears at the mention of family, as his own had died due to a werewolf attack (or as he claims, a robber), and Rheine managed to connect with him due to Lyssa's death. Soon afterwards, Rheine's owl Saona located her owner and delivered her a letter successfully as the two students parted ways. The letter was from Rheine's aunt that made her scream, as it brought news that her cousin Reynie had been attacked by an unknown creature, with critical injuries. Maycie admitted in the letter that she suspected it was a werewolf, and upon Rheine's mentioning of it, Owen nearly fell over, though it went unnoticed.

Blake Schmidt

After that little fiasco, Blake apologized and seemed pretty sincere about it (unlike someone *cough*Ansel*cough*). Rheine's guessing that the younger girl is probably not too corrupted yet and has some hope that she'll never mention that incident again. But as a natural pessimist, she doubts it. Either way, they're on okay terms.

Pelagia Liquero

"I mean, okay, who could get along with this girl? But it seems she dislikes you a bit more."

–Pelagia talking about Faith

Pelagia is in the same year, the same House, and the same dorm room as Rheine, which greatly encourages conversation. Rheine finds the other girl a tad too chatty for her liking, but sweet and lighthearted at the same time. Pelagia blatantly prefers Rheine to Faith, something that Rheine isn't really proud of. Their relationship isn't really on the "friends" level yet, but they're getting there.

Josiah Westenberg

Though they spoke only briefly and while Rheine was slightly out of it, she found the guy pretty okay.

Winston Wolf

"You don't have to aspire to be Faith. Become your own person, right?"

–Winston

A Hufflepuff boy in her year, Winston was rather friendly towards Rheine. She became acquainted with him after the DADA fiasco and by the Black Lake. He encouraged her not to need to aspire to be anyone else but herself, and Rheine accepted it and thanked him.

"...Mediate an agreement between your vital organs."

–Rheine, to Winston

She soon encountered him in the Dance Hall, finding him moping about his best friend Sapphire Allen transferring schools. They got into a heated discussion, with Winston noting her sleep deprivation and weak shoulder. Eventually coming to an agreement, Rheine revealed the reason for her injury (but being very vague about it), and Winston explained his situation with his mother. After they exchanged words and Rheine offered advice, Winston left.

Valentin Fernandez

Okay, so the guy caught her and his sister messing with explosive materials. Apparently he was the one who taught Rina all her tricks (which are a LOT.) He's okay in Rheine's book, a tad overprotective over his sister maybe, but okay.

Melody Padmore

They had a bit of conversation during their fifth year, and got acquainted then. Melody seemed nice. Rheine supposes it comes with the badger territory.

Melinda Bagman

Currently, Rheine is unaware of Melinda's relation to Faith. They first talked in the library about Melinda's planned exploit in the Forbidden Forest, which Rheine did not try to question too much. Parting on okay terms, Rheine met the girl again while lurking around the dungeons, shortly after Melinda's parents' death. Things escalated rather steadily, and Rheine tried her best to comfort the girl, and succeeded marginally.

So far, Rheine guesses that they are on pretty decent terms, and she has a soft spot for the eleven year old.

Faith Bagman

"Merlin, are you capable of giving anyone else a chance?"

–Faith

Loathe as Rheine is to admit it, Faith has definitely leveled up to become an enemy. Faith was rather pissed that Rheine was taking all the answers in classes and inadvertently not letting anyone else participate, leading her to believe that the latter was trying to take her spot as top student. She lashed out on Rheine in the middle of DADA, and events escalated quickly with Cecilie Eskildsen helping her gang up on Rheine and the depressed Gryffindor walking out with a halfhearted apology to the professor. Faith clearly and currently still does hate her for "trying to take everything away from her," even going as far as discussing tactics with the Herbology professor, though she definitely doesn't know that.

Rheine, however, was not lying when she stated that she looked up to Faith since first day, and is more confused and hurt than angry seeing as the majority of onlookers seem to side with Faith, including the professors. Surprisingly she isn't that angry at Faith, even trying to make her view known to acquaintances Pelagia and Winston.

After meeting with Professor Déonté in the latter's office, Rheine acted on her suspicions that Faith had more than one reason for hating her. She tried to pry it out of the girl, but was met with resistance, causing her to believe the reason may be a tad personal. The two got into another verbal fight in the middle of Herbology, Rheine being unable to ignore Faith's jab and ended up getting her third detention.

Upon arrival of Rheine's fifth year, she stumbled upon Faith in the library. Surprisingly their encounter went amazingly well in comparison to their last ones. Sixth year went even more pleasantly - they found some common ground and discussed job possibilities while stranded on a staircase. They're not friends, but they're not enemies nor rivals anymore, in Rheine's book.

Corrine Fernandez

Dear Merlin, Rina and her get along so well it's not even funny. They both like explosives, which was how they actually met. Though Rina's constantly trying to give fashion advice, Rheine likes the younger girl.

Ansel Schmidt

Rheine has decided that Ansel is someone better off avoiding after...that incident in the tent. Especially since his apology was kind of forced.

Aeron Schmidt

Seeing as she ran away before they could actually have a proper conversation, all she knows is that she can't seem to identify Arthur from Aeron and vice versa.

Saona is Rheine's flamboyant and annoyingly arrogant snowy owl. She likes lukewarm water and tropical climates, thus guaranteeing her the name.

Love's a crazy thing to Rheine, okay? It's at least one of the most powerful forces out there, and she doesn't necessarily mean it in a good way- because it sure as hell goes every way. Cupid is not a chubby archer baby. Rick Riordan taught her that much.

But nonetheless...it's kind of like gravity in some ways, aka there's only so much you can do to resist the pull. But what's scary is Rheine is one of those who fall hard and if they ever get back up, only ever get a second chance. No "third time's the charm" for her, sadly.

She's never really fallen before, so she better tread carefully...

Boyce Schmidt

First off, did this guy really make her blush for the first time in her freaking life? Uh, yeah, he did. Rheine met him while she was trying to get used to the surroundings during the World Cup, and their conversation lengthened and lengthened with varying topics until night fell. At one point, she had to fix up his messed up hair.

She met him again during a morning downpour while both sought shelter under the awning of the merch shop. He lent her his coat and least to say...said some things that made both of them turn tomato. Unfortunately she forgot to give it back to him before leaving, leading him to searching for his sister Sadie coatless. This led to a horribly mortifying encounter with his siblings in the Harriers' tent when she couldn't find his tent and she fled as soon as she found the opportunity to.

While being smacked in the face with a reality check that her deceased best friend's death anniversary was coming up, Rheine nearly chucked a rock at him while aiming for a tree. She had a go at him for giving her his coat and getting slightly sick, which she learned from his siblings. After a long conversation/debate, she finally surrendered again and took his coat, all the while wishing she had remembered to send for warmer clothes. She was led to his tent so she could know where to find him next time, and again encountered his two siblings. Fortunately things became somewhat of an anticlimax with both apologizing then leaving them. Before they parted ways, he insisted she keep his coat (which he promised wasn't going to be a bother as he bought it himself unlike last time when his coat came from his grandmother's) and just give it back to him at Hogwarts.

The trolley was another location for another accidental meeting, and they chatted awhile during their hunt for sweets. At Hogwarts, they've obviously spoken in classes (and made the occasional scene...cough) and encountered each other in Hogsmeade. Also, Boyce's siblings would refer to her as his girlfriend (whichwassonottruebackthen), and often tease the two to the point they were two blushing messes.

Rheine herself wasn't exactly sure what was going on, but eventually her attempts at figuring out herself partially succeeded after her fallout with Tori...

RheineTrivia
Rheine Trivia Pic

Rheine is a variation of Rain. Simply from the English word rain, derived from Old English regn.

Kassyra has no known meaning. It is likely to be a possible branch of Cassiopeia: Latinized form of Greek Κασσιοπεια (Kassiopeia) or Κασσιεπεια (Kassiepeia), possibly meaning "cassia juice". In Greek myth Cassiopeia was the wife of Cepheus and the mother of Andromeda. She was changed into a constellation and placed in the northern sky after she died.

Niesa has no known meaning. If rearranged, it is Siena: of Latin origin, and the meaning of Siena is "from Siena". Place name: the city of Siena in Italy, known for its art treasures. The town gave its name to a reddish shade of brown.

Kögler: German - from Kogel + the agent or habitational suffix -er. This name is also found in Hungary and eastern Slovenia.

She suffers from tonsillitis.

She's cracked her skull three times in her life.

Mangoes are her favorite fruit.

She has never been capable of deciding between cats and dogs.

When she was twelve, she got laser surgery for her eyes though it wasn't recommended. She got her braces removed the same year.
