The Character's Background

Please Note: You can write either the first or second question in a bullet point form. However, please remember only one of them can be in that form. The other must be in full sentences and meet the required length.

1) Give a description of your character's personality. It must be at least seven sentences.

  • the personality is in paragraph form, bullets are for formatting only
  • Sioned thrives off positive reinforcement. Those little notes professors leave in the margins of her essays when she makes a good point are like crack to her. She lives for practical lessons for the encouragement she usually gets during them. She plays Chaser for the same reason - scoring is top tier.
  • She does not take bad reviews nearly as well. Even something as simple as a note that something could have been worded better is enough to get her down some days. She takes such things to heart, even if they aren't that serious - she's afraid, sometimes, that if she's not good enough, she'll be cast aside, and that cannot happen.
  • Sioned is an outgoing person and quite confident - typically it's warranted; she does try not to get cocky - and she does her best to maintain her friendships without sacrificing the rest of her schedule. She cares deeply about her friends and about making sure they know she's there for them, but she isn't always the best at juggling it all.
  • She's got a great sense of direction! That's really the only reason she's not late to class - she has a knack for finding and remembering the fastest ways to get to different parts of the castle. She has a small side project going trying to make a coherent Hogwarts map that will adjust based on destination and time of day, but she can only work on it for several hours at a time before leaving it for months.
  • Despite her meticulously outlined schedule, Sioned often...well, she doesn't really forget, but she does lose track of time, and tends to mis-prioritize things. She'll spend hours studying for a test she would already pass without issue, and then cram in a two thousand word essay in the two class periods right before it's due. It works for her, most of the time.
  • Sioned needs to feel needed - even if it's something as simple as asking her to open a jar, she's ready to rise to the occasion. She's the kind of person who would have been swayed into enlisting by those Uncle Sam "I need you for the US Army" posters.

2) Write about the history of your character. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? It must be at least two paragraphs long, seven sentences each.

  • the history is in bullet point form
  • gwen llywelyn met her future husband, delwyn, in a bar, like all straight people do
    • he was charming in an infuriating way
    • he also killed a man! but. what can you do
      • she didn't find out he was a nymph on the run until after they'd tied the knot
    • they did whatever straight people courtship looks like then got married. ultimately that's not really important
    • then they had a baby on 19 jan 2030 !! i wonder who it is??
      • sioned. im not wasting time on siblings rn x
  • they had a lil baby girl and named her sioned and they weren't terrible parents
    • they just weren't around for very long x
      • how rude of them to die amirite
    • the aforementioned man delwyn had killed had a wife and she came around for revenge! we love to see it
      • anyway she yeeted gwen and delwyn but she wasn't heartless enough to kill a baby so she dropped sioned off at lil bundles like u do
  • sioned was a fussy baby! she always wanted attention
    • and lil bundles is pretty good so she usually got it we love to see it
  • her magic showed up when she was six
    • nothing particularly fun, she just fixed a glass she broke
    • but she was rlly proud of herself for it anyway!!
  • her childhood was remarkably uneventful
    • she made friends! and...some not-friends. it happens
  • she got into junior league quidditch as a hobby
    • she was good, but she didn't get really competitive until Hogwarts
  • hogwarts was good for her! she'd been looking forward to it for years and it really did live up to her expectations
    • she joined potions club and like...she wasn't the best, but she can follow instructions! and she has a pretty good understanding of how the ingredients work together, but it's more theoretical knowlege
  • she pays attention in class, but she tends to be late on her homework, if she does it at all, so her grades do suffer a bit from that
    • she tests pretty well, all things considered. the only owl she failed was for magic theory! and only barely.
  • transfiguration isn't her best class - that's astronomy - but Professor Van der Hoek is her favorite teacher, hands down

3) Write about your character's appearance. What do they look like? Who are you planning on using a certain model for your character? Please include both model name and picture!

  • isabel may!!

4) Is your character a Pure-Blood, Half-Blood or Muggle-Born? Do you have any notable magical relations? (Remember, you cannot be related to important characters from the Harry Potter Universe!)

  • half-blood

5) Does your character have any special abilities? Is he or she of a different magical race, such as Veela, Vampire, Werewolf or the like? Part or half of a magical race counts! (Remember, you cannot have a character with special abilities/of a different magical race as one of your first two characters!)

  • yes she's half light nymph and sometimes she just glows in the dark x

6) What year is your character in?

  • 6th

7) The Sorting Hat has been known to take house preference into consideration. If your character could select one house they believe they are best suited for, what would it be and why?

  • Gryffindor! first year sioned would prefer the lion mascot over everything else x
