Roulette is a genius. Both intellectually and artistically. She has a mind worthy of Athena and creativity worthy of the muses. While some may consider Rou as quiet, she's actually more reflective. She doesn't speak until she has something important to say, and when she does, she usually portrays it in her art. Some say Roulette would chose to live out the rest of her days with a pad and pencil rather than with people. They may be right.
She most certainly isn't one for social gatherings and she truly doesn't see the value in pointless conversation. She gets straight to the point. Roulette has little to no tolerance for two types of people: idiots and bullies. Usually the latter is also the former in her opinion. Rou believes that there is no reason to make fun of people who are different than you. We're all made of the same stuff. And if she catches someone being an a**, she's very quick to call them out for it. As far as idiots go, she just doesn't like people who chose to be ignorant. She understands some people are more educated than others - that's not her problem. It's people who hurt themselves or others by being dumb. It's usually the people who choose to act stupid that she gets peeved with. Not people who have a harder time comprehending.
Although she may come off as cold or too reserved, Roulette truly has a kind heart. She has a soft spot for those who feel unwanted, especially after what happened to her brother. Rou is always willing to help anyone who needs it, though, you usually have to come to her. She's not all that outgoing. Her favorite thing is to be up high where she swears she thinks better. She's always wearing her older brother's jacket that's too big for her. The sleeves go past her finger tips, but she wears it anyway to keep her brother close to her. It's not uncommon to find her with a licorice wand in her mouth and a pencil in her hand. And anything else you need to know about her, you'll find out while getting to know her. She's an open book - you just have to do a little reading.
Lumiere Pelletier decscended from a infamous pure-blood family in France. Being the only son, his parents stressed the importance for him to continue the pure bloodline. Hence, their decision to arrange his marriage with Agnieta of the Russian pureblood family Slecov. While most arranged marriages end up a sham, this was one of the few that turned out well. Agnieta was a kind woman who was loyal beyond compare. Her duty was to her family, and after she married into the Pelletier family, her duty was to that family as well. The couple had a rocky start, though they liked each other well enough. Soon, they developed genuine feelings for one another and truly fell in love. To prove their affection, they renewed their wedding vows and tried for a child. They were blessed with a beautiful baby boy named Jon, and then not long after came little Rou. The last child was Belle. The family was quite happy and their love for each other was immense.
At age six, Roulette had her first magical encounter. She had a natural gift for art, something she inherited from her mother. One night, Rou was playing around with paints, but it was time for bed. Roulette being resilient in her quest to finish her piece, snuck out of her bedroom to continue painting. She was caught of course, and her mother set the paints atop the shelf that loomed above the canvas and sent little Rou back to bed. Next thing Agnieta knew, Roulette was out of bed once again and paint was everywhere: the canvas, the floor, the desk, and all over her daughter who looked so proud of her art work. Roulette was grounded for that, but the canvas still remains on display in the Pelletier mansion to this day.
When Roulette was of age, she was to attend Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. She was easily sorted into Papillonlisse, and found many friends that shared her talents and ways of thinking. She loved it there. It wasn't until her second year that she and the rest of her family found out Jon was being bullied. He was best friends with a muggleborn, and because of him being a pure blood, the other students looked down upon him. At first, they just shamed him, but then it became more of a problem. Lumiere and Agnieta decided the Beauxbatons was not the school for their children. The next year, the Pelletier children were sent to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
