Tess is a quiet girl. She prefers to be out of everyone's way. She's intelligent but doesn't speak up. She loves the outdoors and loves to just explore it. She's weaker than most but that doesn't seem to stop her from having fun. She loves to read and longs to make friends but it's hard for her do to her social awkwardness. She's really kind when you meet her.
Tess remembers getting sorted as if it was yesterday. The anxiety of waiting for her name to be called, the way everyone stared at her as she walked towards the hat. And the couple of seconds that could've easily been years as the hat decided what house she would be. And, most of all, the big grin on her face as she walked towards the Ravenclaw table.
Theresa Drade wad born three months early on November 7th to Rebecca Willis Drade and Robert Drade. She was small and weak. Plus, she has a weak immune system. It didn't matter how the is were against her, she survived. And she lived.
Her older brother, Brandon Drade, would bully her relentlessly for no other reason than for sport. However, she didn't let it get to her. She spent her time with her dad and continued to smile. When she turned four, she gave her older brother, David Drade, a welt for pulling on her hair without touching him. Her parents were puzzled but didn't question it, after all, their boys also did strange things.
She went to a muggle public school and learned all she could before she turned ten, which was when she got her letter to Hogwarts.

Popular variant of Theresa. The first bearers of this name might have been from the Greek island of Therasia. The popularity of two saints, Teresa of Avila and Therese of Lisieux, has resulted in the creation of many variants. Mother Teresa founded an order of nuns, the Missionaries of Charity, whose sisters help people in need around the world. Her work earned her the title "the saint of the gutters", and the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. See also Tracy. Actress Teresa Wright; basketball player Teresa Weatherspoon.
