Her mother


"There's this musical. It's called Next to Normal. I remember, because my mom would shout at me in Greek about how much English profanity is in it. There's a character in that musical. Her name's Natalie. Halfway into the musical, she sings a song about how she's the invisible girl, and her brother's superboy. She's constantly overshadowed by her brother, despite him already being dead.

"That's the thing about me. My dad loves me a lot, really, I'm a total daddy's girl. But my mom practically worships the ground my brother walks on. He was Quidditch Captain, and just when I thought they had found someone better for that position, he was offered Head Boy. He excels in Care of Magical Creatures, and is now working with dragons in Greece, so that he can stay close to the family. I hate it. I guess my mum favors him more because he's the eldest, and the boy, and the child that was actually planned. My Greek mum and British, wizard dad fell in love at first sight. They were married in Greece and continued to live there for the rest of their lives. My older brother, Matthaios Panagiotis, was born a year after they got married. I was born eight years later. Why? Simply put, I am an accident. I wasn't meant to be alive.

"The word accident is pretty much imprinted into my mind. My brother calls me that enough, along with "Lizard" and sometimes my mum does when she's especially mad. My dad tells me I'm not an accident. He calls me a bonus. He favors me and my mum favors Matt. I would appreciate it if she toned her praise for him down just a little bit though.

"My brother used to take up piano, which is why we had this old piano in the middle of our living room. I always liked to play it, and soon enough, my dad thought that maybe I should start taking actual lessons. Piano inspired me to take up violin, which inspired me to take up guitar, then flute, then trumpet, then the ukelele and so on and so forth. I've learned a total of eleven instruments. I'm really proud of that fact. The reason why I appreciate music so much is that I have a type of synesthesia called chromesthesia. It's a specific type of confusion of the senses that mix up color with sound. It was diagnosed at the age of eleven.

"It's kind of like this fireworks sensation. It's funny, because growing up, I thought everyone just saw music and other sounds that way. It ties in with my first magical accident. I was playing a song, just something I thought of by myself. I remember that the fireworks appearing above the piano were different shades of violet. The piece was in the key of A minor. Violet is always how A minor looks like.

"I was accepted into Hogwarts in July. In third year I started taking all the optional classes I could, also the year I got my first boyfriend. No, I don't want to talk about him. Anyway, I've decided that infatuation (because who can really say that they were in love at the age of thirteen?) is just a distraction from more important things. School, for example.

"In fifth year, I met Cai. He used to be the most irritating jerk in the entire world. Now, he's still irritating, but he's less of a jerk and we've been dating for a year. I worked as a PA for a while at the Ministry, but now I'm the Head of Admissions."

Her mother
Liz is an overachiever. She wants to make her parents proud. She's gone a little too far sometimes though, and while she was a student people often needed to remind her to eat during exams week. Once, in second year, she fainted due to malnutrition and had to be sent to the Hospital Wing. She is a no-nonsense serious type, and only lets herself get rid of the rigid attitude whenever she plays any musical instrument. Otherwise, she is too serious, almost always studying and rarely takes anytime for herself to have fun. Once she sets her mind on something, she makes sure to get it.

She has the standard belief that she won't be good enough, ever, causing problems. She doesn't like anyone having to worry about her, she hates accepting help. She's very proud and doesn't like admitting that she needs anyone. Comparing herself to others is almost a second nature to her, and she places blame on other people and things when stuff goes wrong, so that she won't have to take the blame herself. The only person in the world who can calm her down, yet help her remain focused in Cai.

skills and magical abilities
Defense Against the Dark Arts: She excels in this subject, she believes it to be very fun. It's also very easy for her, as she considers memorizing a good method of keeping her straight O standard. She likes this subject especially, it's her favorite.


possessions
Wand: Liz's wand is a Redwood, Dragon Heartstring, 8 inches. Wand-quality redwood is in short supply, yet constant demand, due to its reputation for bringing good fortune to its owner. As is usually the case with wandlore, the general populace have the truth back to front: redwood wands are not themselves lucky, but are strongly attracted to witches and wizards who already possess the admirable ability to fall on their feet, to make the right choice, to snatch advantage from catastrophe.

trivia
*She speaks Greek fluently, as that is the language her mother speaks to her in.
*Liz used to date Thomas Hayden in Third Year, but they broke up over the summer. Even though she knows she was kind of being unfair to him then, she knows that it would've never worked out because he's too laid-back.
*Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture sets off a legitimate fireworks show in her head, so that scene in V for Vendetta sort of pisses her off because it isn't anything like she imagines.
*She has synesthesia.
*Her favorite instrument to play is the piano.
