Yooralla "Ralla" Wilson is a Half-Blood witch. She is the youngest daughter of Alkina Kelly and Dainan Wilson. Ralla and her twin sister Jannali used to play quidditch for the Wollongong Warriors. They became "star" Beaters in a single year with a strategy learned from their father known in Australia as the "Warrior Wall".
The twins used their ability to simultaneously decimate the opposing teams Chasers, Seeker and Keeper by working in unison to send the opposing teams bludgers raining back at them. Their well honed techniques have aided in countless wins for the Warriors against their bitter rivals the Thunderers multiple times over. Ralla was approached (in secret) and offered a deal from the Toyohashi Tengu and the Patonga Proudsticks. They wanted to break down the "Warrior Wall", to get the girls to switch teams. Ralla agreed.
The Wilson girls practiced every quidditch position from a very young age. Ralla always had a preference for Seeker. Her father discourage her at every utterance. He stressed that she, and her sister needed to focus on how to play as Beaters or Chasers. He argued with Ralla constantly telling her she did not need to waste her time learning to mechanics of being Seeker. Keeper, that he was going to teach. She would get to Seeker, maybe after she learned how to throw the quaffle, and what it felt like to whack a bludger.
When Ralla was ten ten her father built a small scale pitch with low set hoop to allow her to practice shooting the quaffle without falling too far off her broom and getting more than a few scrapes and bruises. Ralla had a tough time the first few months, she didn't take to flying the way she wanted to. She had a hard time getting her broom up, and once she was able to command it, she couldn't stay on it. Ralla fell off her broom about a dozen times in the first week. Her mother was very grateful for the low hoops she joked about early on. Ralla did get better, and it took some time. She was not a natural.
When Ralla was twelve her father raised the height of the hoops. She had taken her first "official" flying lesson, now he she could be introduced to the bludger. Ralla liked the bludger. She liked the feeling of the Beater's bat, she liked the sound it made when she hit a bludger as hard as she could, and she secretly liked the stinging in her hand and forearm when she connected. Ralla didn't like it when her father hit bludgers at her. She did learn how to aim bludgers at the quaffle, a skill she surprised her father with, it was one he never thought to pick up.
At fifteen her father had already raised the hoops to regulation height. When he let Ralla out to for practice one particular day, he released the Snitch. Her eyes lit up, but she let it get away. She thought it was a joke. He had the thing charmed to send a missile like bludger at her if she went after it. Ralla hesitated for a while longer, her father became annoyed. He summoned a bag filled with hundreds of Snitches, and he released them all at once. As they fluttered away at warp speed he told Ralla for every snitch she didn't catch, he was sending a wall of bludgers at her for that many days. Her eyes went wide, she hopped on her broom darting through the air shouting down to him ; "You don't know how many there are!" veering in every which way in chase. He shouted back to her; "Three hundred and sixty-seven."
When Ralla was seventeen she had finally finished her year facing "the wall". Her father seriously meant it when he challenged her to catch three hundred and sixty-seven Snitches, all because she let the first solo one get away, and to make matters worse the following year was a leap year. She caught one, one snitch. He let her have her one day off, she choose her birthday. It was the only day she did not have to train.
Ralla has put in a lot of hard-work toward becoming a Professional Quidditch player.

Alkina Kelly and Dainan Wilson
Alkina is Ralla and Janna's mother, a home-school teacher. She is a sweet, and loving yet critical woman. She was the first to point out that Dainan set the hoops for the pitch too low. When she saw how useful a strategy that was for training her little girls she was very quick to make her appreciation known.
Dainan is Ralla and Janna's father he was a Healer and a pro quidditch player for the Warriors in his youth. He was instrumental in Ralla and Janna becoming pro quidditch players who played for the same team as their father. He died when the twins were 19.
Jannali Kyeema Wilson
Janna is Ralla's older twin sister, they were home-schooled by their mother. They never attended a formal school, but it did not stop either of them from making friends. Janna is the real brawn of the twins, she is a little bit taller, a little bit faster, and a little bit stronger than her little sister is.
Ralla is the much more excitable of the two sisters. She doesn't mind being confused for Janna, she honestly thinks Janna is prettier despite the fact that they are identical.

Keeping her word
Ralla became increasingly aggressive after that long, long year "at the wall" (as her sister called it) was over. She became a stronger and more agile Chaser and a much more attentive, and stealthy beater.
She's always looking for common ground, something she and other people can agree to love or hate. She's fairly impatient she tends to snap at people if they stammer to much or they take too long making a decision. She is prone to reading way too much into what people say and do, she gets that very bad habit of over-analyzing things from her mother. Having the habit of being "protective" and "defensive" literally beaten into her, she is loyal to the death. But while Ralla might forgive, she will never forget.
