------------------------------------------------------------
APPEARANCE
------------------------------------------------------------


HAIR COLOUR: reddish brown

EYE COLOUR: hazel gray

COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: average

BODY BUILD: slimmed

GENERAL APPEARANCE: Ellery is of average height with a slim build that has the potential for muscle. She has a very intense look about her, and with her bold and quiet nature around strangers this also tends to ward them off. Her hair is long and flows, naturally wavy, with a brown that glints a burning red in the sunlight. Ellery's eyes are a type of hazel in nature, but mistaken for gray quite often as they are very neutrally so until the light hits and brings out the hidden greens and browns often obscured by dim lighting. Her smile, when a close friend brings it out, is bright and joyful accompanied by a laugh that bubbles out in the form of giggles. Ellery stands very straight with her chin forward so she is always facing whatever is in front of her dead-on.

PERSONALITY
------------------------------------------------------------



TRAITS:
Orderly
Passionate
Stoic
Strong-Willed

LIKES & DISLIKES:
Likes: Dogs, flying, magical creatures, night time, engaging books, adventure, quiet fields
Dislikes: Cats, boats, early mornings, snobs, oatmeal, allergy season, shoe laces

GOALS: Do well in school. Keep up with Quidditch.

HABITS & QUIRKS: None at the moment.

BOGGART: Small spaces. Her literal boggart would be a chest trying to swallow her.

PATRONUS: When, after crying because her parents were arguing over her Hogwarts letter, her older brother (19 at the time) comes to sit with her and tell her how he's proud to call her his sister.

DEMENTOR: When she came home after her first year of Hogwarts and her mother was gone.

VERITASERUM: How she doesn't want to admit that she isn't always sure of herself.

MIRROR OF ERISED: For her mom to love her like she used to.

PERSONALITY:

The first thing that one may notice about Ellery, is just how orderly she keeps herself. Her bag of belongings is organized with a special place for each individual item. Her bed is made every morning as if the Minister of Magic was to come and inspect it. Ellery is not a neat-freak, mind you. She is simply constantly doing the upkeep. She wants to be very orderly on her own and embraces the messy people in her life in order to make her neatness look good.

If there's one thing others notice when Ellery begins talking, it is that she is a very passionate girl. Any time a classmate gets her talking about magical creatures, she shines with a look her eyes that has blown others away. If one were to dare oppose a strong moral or belief in Ellery, they would face an angry passion that is otherwise described as terrifying.

Now the next word to describe dear Ellery would almost seem to be opposing her passionate side, for Ellery is very stoic as well. The way it works is that she is simply unsociable in a crowd. Around more than a handful of others, Ellery sinks into her inner conscious and watches others with an observant eye. Around just a few, or the people closest to her, Ellery blooms like a flower. But another thing that makes her stoic, is that she has become very experienced at keeping certain emotions hidden.

With the passion in Ellery's heart also comes her strong-willed side. This more negative side of Ellery developed during her childhood around her siblings. She never enjoyed being told was to do, especially if she really didn't want to do it. So Ellery spoke out against anything her siblings told her to do, and they heard these counter-arguments and consistent "no-way-in-azkaban-am-i-going-to-do-that"s just about every other day. Now where it's more apparent around her family, Ellery is a little less actively refusing to listen to others now that she's at Hogwarts. She's more compliant than she was when she was younger, but woe to those that attempt to force Ellery on a boat if she doesn't have to.

CHARACTER HISTORY
------------------------------------------------------------


Early Years: Ellery never understood why her aunt didn't come over very often, or what it meant when her parents were arguing with her aunt that Ellery was a "normal little girl" and not what she thought Ellery was. But that was only a small worry in the life of Little Ellie. She was a wonderful life with her mother, father, older brother, younger brother, and younger sister. She had lots of friends at school and loved animals (mostly doggies) and loved drawing and stories and playtime. But as Ellery got older, strange things began happening - especially when she was getting closer to turning eleven years old. The strangest memory Ellery can recall is finding it so odd that one day their hamster had disappeared and all that they could find in the cage was a furry teacup. Then came the day of Ellery's eleventh birthday, where she stepped outside early that morning and, with her mother right behind her, a beautiful brown owl dropped a large letter in Ellery's hands. That's when the secret came out.

Within minutes the entire house seemed to explode. Ellery's mother and father screaming and arguing, and it was no better when Ellery's aunt showed up at their house that day either. Ellery was a witch. Ellery could do magic. And the most important fact was that Ellery had to go away during the school year to a boarding school for witches and wizards known as Hogwarts. That night, after being comforted by her older brother, Ellery left with their aunt, who was also a witch, for the summer to begin learning all she needed to know before Hogwarts began in the fall.

Hogwarts Years: Ellery began Hogwarts with a bittersweet attitude. She blamed it for all the problems it caused within her family. But as soon as she was sorted and accepted by all other children like her, Ellery's negative feelings toward Hogwarts melted away like snow in the springtime. Ellery's first year was all excitement, and went home to her aunt's for Christmas that year though she didn't know why. When Ellery returned home to her family at the end of her first year, she came home to a house of strangers. Her father wouldn't look at her the same way, her siblings were unsure of how to talk to her, and her mother was nowhere to be found. No one had known where she'd gone - she hadn't left a note, but their father blamed Ellery. Ellery began to blame herself as well and constantly feels that burden on her heart.

As she entered year two, Ellery was a different person. Her friends she had made noticed and tried to help, but Ellery had become very quiet socially. She only spoke a lot around those she was close to up until Christmas and when she came back after the holidays, she was a little better, but the emotional hit she took from her family was heavy on her heart and mind.

When year three came, Ellery opened up slowly and began to accept that the wizarding world was her new family. She joined quidditch (which she was surprisingly pretty swell at). She made new friends. She was beginning to feel happy. Then year four came and went, happiness still drifting back into her life. Now that year five is here, Ellery finds herself rolling with the punches and finding greater friends than she's ever known.

BEHIND THE CHARACTER
------------------------------------------------------------



ALSO KNOWN AS: wolf

RP EXPERIENCE: seven years

HOW YOU FOUND US: a friend

MAIN CHARACTER: Not a current memberrrrrrrrrrrr...

PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: To LIVE. (because I wanted to join)

RP SAMPLE:
Spoiler:
**this is from awhile ago

Elizabeta breathed hard, taking a moment to be still and catch some breath - a luxury that she would not have in battle, but only during some morning practice. She stood in a stance where her sword was embedded into the belly of a training dummy. Ellie slowly pushed herself back up and pulled her sword out. She buried the tip of her sword in the ground and leaned on the hilt. Sweat was evident on her forehead and she tried her best to wipe it off with her sleeve. It may have been winter, and a light snow had fallen this morning, but Ellie was working on her swordsmanship and so the world felt hotter. She wore long pants and a long-sleeved tunic - they were normally meant for sparring, but she hadn't felt like wearing her full armor today.

Standing up straight once more, Elizabeta sheathed her sword and took the sheath on her belt and put it off to the side. She smiled gratefully to the stable she had sent moments ago for some water as he brought it to her and thanked him kindly. He, being probably only about 16 or 17, stared in wonder at the training dummy with slashes and holes in various places were the straw stuck out. Ellie looked at it a moment herself while sipping water, wondering if the stable boy had come here for knight training and didn't quite make the cut. She let out a big sigh. What was the point in training all the time if she had no purpose? Life was boring and everyone was on good terms. There didn't even seem to be any sort of trouble going on in the west for her to deal with anyway. But she supposed that was probably because of their lenient laws.

Elizabeta looked up toward the Stonegate Castle. She wondered why the royal family didn't commission a nicer one with more grandeur and leave this one as a summer home or something. It was nice to have it open to the public, but it was also strange. Ellie wondered if maybe the family wished they were normal and that's why they allowed so many strange things. She thought about the old castle that burned down and the stories she'd heard. Ellie wondered if maybe that was the reason they didn't build a new home - they simply were scared of another tragedy. But Elizabeta didn't understand anything having to do with childhood homes or things like that. Having no memory before the age of 13 she didn't have the experiences of being a child. And in some ways, that's what made her so well at fighting.

Elizabeta gave a deep breath, and picked up her longsword again. She faced the training dummy with her sword pointed up and went through some motions before striking it. She wondered if life would ever pick up the excitement it used to have.

Hey, Wolf!

Welcome aboard! I read your app. I like Ellery. She seems more to me a Gryffindor than a Ravenclaw. I presume that's what you intended with her.

Don't worry about the coding. TBH, we've had a few glitches with it lately. And it seems that every time we think we've fixed it, it seems to develop a few new things. Oh well.

However, can you please change your user name from Ellery to Ellery Dixon? We do need to have it by first and last name.

Thanks!
k
