PUGH, Delwyn

on Mon Jan 19, 2015 7:18 pm



FULL NAME: Delwyn Bethan Pugh

NICKNAMES: Will respond to "Dels".

AGE: 15

Birthday: July 9th



CLASSES: History of Magic, Herbology, Divination

WAND: Redwood, unicorn hair and fairy wing core, eleven inches, supple.


  • "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. The combination of such a witch or wizard with a redwood wand is always intriguing, and I generally expect to hear of exciting exploits when I send this special pairing out from my workshop." - Garrick Ollivander

Unicorn Hair:

  • Unicorn hair is a common wand core, symbolizing innocence and purity.  Those who are full of spirit, sweet, gentle, cheerful, value family and friendship, are dependable, laid back, humble, independent, caring, loyal, and/or dual-natured may have this wand core. Having such a wand core suggests that one is optimistic and free spirited, but also loving and kind-hearted, with strong family values. Unicorn hair cores are an incredibly love-centric wand core, and often instill encouragement and confidence into their owners.
  • Unicorn hair cores generally produce the most consistent magic, and are least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn hair cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts (with the exception of those with unicorn heartstring) and are the most faithful of all wands. They usually remain strongly attached to their first owner irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard.
  • Disadvantages of unicorn hair cores are that they do not make the most powerful wands, and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may "die" and thus will need replacing.
  • Unicorn hair cores are a more subtle wand core, and are quite compatible with Charms and Transfiguration. This wand core is also the best core for healing magic. Unicorn hair cores have a reputation for picking gentler or more cerebral users, so they are common among Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws. More laid-back Gryffindors and subtler Slytherins may also find themselves with this core.

Fairy Wing:

  • Those who are light-hearted, free-spirited, caring, kind, outgoing, social, happy, and cheerful will likely have this wand core. Having such a wand core suggests that one responds well in social and public gatherings, as well as sharing a kinship with animals and nature in general. An owner of this wand core often lights up a room with his or her kind and caring nature, which may make them a central focus at any party or social hub.
  • Despite its astounding strength in Charms, this core is merely average for Defense Against the Dark Arts and Transfiguration, and will often fail at hexes altogether. A fairy wing core also signifies a connection to the mystic, so this wand core, despite its relative rarity, is used by nearly half the known witches and wizards with the Sight.
  • This wand core is often found among Hufflepuffs, but usually bonds with Ravenclaws and Gryffindors when combined with a unicorn hair core.

PLAY BY: Odeya Rush


HAIR COLOUR: A dark brown


COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: A little below average

BODY BUILD: On the slimmer side of average, with a little bit of a boyish figure.

Delwyn is just a bit shorter and slimmer than a majority of her classmates, and is completely unbothered by this. This discrepancy isn't large enough that she has to crane her neck in order to talk to her friends, and that's the important thing. Delwyn is just a tad bit miffed, however, that she has not yet grown into her figure the way so many of the girls around her have. She isn't flat-chested, but she isn't far from it, and her body looks more like the males in her year than those she shares a dorm with. Her mother continues to tell her that it's just a matter of time, and Delwyn is awaiting that time with baited breath.

When not in school robes, Delwyn can often be seen in casual skirts or printed pants. Delwyn believes that wearing pretty and colourful clothing can not only brighten her own day, but that of those around her as well. This isn't to say that she doesn't own plainer and more subtle clothing as well, but those rarely leave her trunk.

Delwyn has long given up on taming her long, curly hair, decreeing it a waste of time. That being said, she also refuses to wear it any shorter than mid-back. On good hair days, the witch is happy enough to leave it down, but more often than not one can find it in a braid hanging over her left shoulder.      

Delwyn does wear make up, most days, unless she is running terribly late for classes or is feeling under the weather. Unlike many of her friends, who apply colourful eyeshadows and sparkly lip-glosses, Delwyn applies only a facial powder, mascara, and lip balm. The witch quite likes the way wearing beauty products makes her feel polished.

Her sorting. She'd known she was a witch, had her wand to prove it and everything, but her sorting was when it properly sunk in. She was a witch, and she was going to Hogwarts.

When her mother miscarried. Delwyn was ten, and could not have been more excited with the prospect of having a little brother. Her mum was in a car crash and was seriously injured, having to spend many days in the hospital recovering. The unborn baby didn't make it, and Delwyn's mum will forever have scars from the accident. She has never been so scared as when her father told Delwyn her mum was in the ICU.

Delwyn doesn't really have any serious secrets, yet. However, if one was to ask her, her crush on the cute Zabini boy in Hufflepuff is certainly something she'd rather not have spread around.

To be happy. Truly happy. And if true happiness happens to come in the form of a library the size of an average mansion and a cute guy, well, that works for her.


ESFJ - Extravert(78%), Sensing(2%), Feeling(75%), Judging(11%)
OR (in a different quiz)
ENFJ - Extravert(80%), Intuition(1%), Feeling(70%), Judging(15%)

Delwyn as an ESFJ:
ESFJ's primary mode of living is focused externally, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system. Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion.

ESFJs are people persons - they love people. They are warmly interested in others. They use their Sensing and Judging characteristics to gather specific, detailed information about others, and turn this information into supportive judgments. They want to like people, and have a special skill at bringing out the best in others. They are extremely good at understanding the point of view of others. The ESFJ's strong desire to be liked and for everything to be pleasant makes them highly supportive of others. People like to be around ESFJs, because the ESFJ has a special gift of invariably making people feel good about themselves.

The ESFJ takes their responsibilities very seriously, and is very dependable. They value security and stability, and have a strong focus on the details of life. They see before others do what needs to be done, and do whatever it takes to make sure that it gets done.

ESFJs are warm and energetic. They need approval from others to feel good about themselves. They are hurt by indifference and don't understand unkindness. They are very giving people, who get a lot of their personal satisfaction from the happiness of others. They want to be appreciated for who they are, and what they give. They're very sensitive to others, and freely give practical care. ESFJs are such caring individuals, that they sometimes have a hard time seeing or accepting a difficult truth about someone they care about.

ESFJs have a strong need to be liked, and to be in control. They often change their own manner to be more pleasing to whoever they're with at the moment.

ESFJs who have had the benefit of being raised and surrounded by a strong value system that is ethical and centered around genuine goodness will most likely be the kindest, most generous souls who will gladly give you the shirt off of their back without a second thought. For these individuals, the selfless quality of their personality type is genuine and pure.

All ESFJs have a natural tendency to want to control their environment. Their dominant function demands structure and organization, and seeks closure. ESFJs are most comfortable with structured environments. They do enjoy creating order and structure, and are very good at tasks which require these kinds of skills. ESFJs should be careful about controlling people in their lives who do not wish to be controlled.

ESFJs respect and believe in the laws and rules of authority, and believe that others should do so as well. They're traditional, and prefer to do things in the established way, rather than venturing into unchartered territory. Their need for security drives their ready acceptance and adherence to the policies of the established system. This tendency may cause them to sometimes blindly accept rules without questioning or understanding them.

ESFJs incorporate many of the traits that are associated with women in our society. Due to this, female ESFJs will be very feminine.

ESFJs at their best are warm, sympathetic, helpful, cooperative, tactful, down-to-earth, practical, thorough, consistent, organized, enthusiastic, and energetic. They enjoy tradition and security, and will seek stable lives that are rich in contact with friends and family.

Delwyn as an ENFJ:
ENFJs are people-focused individuals. They live in the world of people possibilities. More so than any other type, they have excellent people skills. They understand and care about people, and have a special talent for bringing out the best in others. ENFJ's main interest in life is giving love, support, and a good time to other people. They are focused on understanding, supporting, and encouraging others. They make things happen for people, and get their best personal satisfaction from this.

ENFJs tend to define their life's direction and priorities according to other people's needs, and may not be aware of their own needs. It's natural to their personality type that they will tend to place other people's needs above their own, but they need to stay aware of their own needs so that they don't sacrifice themselves in their drive to help others.

ENFJ's tend to be more reserved about exposing themselves than other extraverted types. Although they may have strongly-felt beliefs, they're likely to refrain from expressing them if doing so would interfere with bringing out the best in others. ENFJ is in many ways expressive and open, but is more focused on being responsive and supportive of others. When faced with a conflict between a strongly-held value and serving another person's need, they are highly likely to value the other person's needs.

People love ENFJs. They are fun to be with, and truly understand and love people. They are typically very straight-forward and honest. Usually ENFJs exude a lot of self-confidence, and have a great amount of ability to do many different things. They are generally bright, full of potential, energetic and fast-paced. They are usually good at anything which captures their interest.

ENFJs like for things to be well-organized, and will work hard at maintaining structure and resolving ambiguity. They have a tendency to be fussy, especially with their home environments.

In the work place, ENFJs do well in positions where they deal with people. They are naturals for the social committee. Their uncanny ability to understand people and say just what needs to be said to make them happy makes them naturals for counseling. They enjoy being the center of attention, and do very well in situations where they can inspire and lead others, such as teaching.

ENFJs have a special gift with people, and are basically happy people when they can use that gift to help others. They get their best satisfaction from serving others. Their genuine interest in Humankind and their exceptional intuitive awareness of people makes them able to draw out even the most reserved individuals.

ENFJs have a strong need for close, intimate relationships, and will put forth a lot of effort in creating and maintaining these relationships. They're very loyal and trustworthy once involved in a relationship.

In general, ENFJs are charming, warm, gracious, creative and diverse individuals with richly developed insights into what makes other people tick. This special ability to see growth potential in others combined with a genuine drive to help people makes the ENFJ a truly valued individual. As giving and caring as the ENFJ is, they need to remember to value their own needs as well as the needs of others.

Delwyn was born in Cardiff, Wales, on the very day she was supposed to be. Her gender, however, took her parents completely by surprise. The regular doctor's visits throughout her mum's pregnancy had all resulted in the specialists informing the Pugh couple that they would shortly be the proud parents to a little boy. However, this was not to be so. Their doctor would later tell the couple that such mistakes were both unlikely and rare, but not unheard of, and that the mistake was not in any way due to a fault in their precious child. Still, the couple had decided many months prior to the birth what they would be naming the new addition to their family, and were loath to change the baby's name now. Still, in the spirit of not giving the poor girl a male's name, the couple spent the next week or so trying to refer to their baby as Delwen, the feminine equivalent of the name they had already chosen. As the two had suspected, it simply didn't stick. And so, their young daughter's birth certificate was transcribed with a masculine name.

The young girl had a pretty nice young life, she had friends to play dolls with, and was barely picked on at all in Primary School. Even at five the child was popular, with all the girls wanting Delwyn to play with them, and the boys pulling on her braided pigtails. The girl loved them all, constantly informing her classmates that everyone should take turns. This wasn't due to any particular proficiency at sharing, but rather a desire to play with everyone, not just a handful of other children like most did. Her teachers sent back reports of a well behaved student who was respectful, got along well with the other children, and was always excited for the lesson of the day.

Delwyn, out of everyone she enjoyed playing with, was by far closest to her two elder cousins. The Bowen family lived right down the street from the young girl, and the two families met for dinner at least twice a week. When Eira, who was a whole three years older than Delwyn, turned eleven, things changed. Delwyn's cousin started to spend less and less time with her, instead preferring the company of her own mother. It took months of this behavior before Delwyn was told the truth about this change in behavior. Eira was a witch, and would shortly be going off to a special school where she would learn how to use her magic. Delwyn was heartbroken. She would be loosing one of her two best friends to something was completely beyond her grasp.

Delwyn wasn't expecting a special owl-delivered letter when she turned eleven. The girl was smarted than to expect it, having watched Fioled's heart break when she hadn't received the letter that her elder sister had. Yet, the seemingly impossible had happened, and Delwyn was invited to the very same magical school Eira had spent the last few years attending. The girl had almost wanted to reject the offer, the look on Fioled's face cracking her heart in two, but couldn't bring herself to turn down such an opportunity. She was a witch and would be going to Hogwarts to learn magic. It was like all of her birthday's and Christmas's rolled into one.

Delwyn was not sorted into Hufflepuff, like her cousin, but that was alright. Eira had made her own friends at the school, and encouraged her younger cousin to do the same. And so, Delwyn did. Classes were amazing, the very idea of preforming magic still capable of taking her breath away some days, and Wizarding culture just as incredible. At first, the girl had spent as much time within the walls of the impressive Hogwarts library as possible, before realizing that true knowledge came from the mouths and minds of others. Delwyn would bombard her Professors with questions about the possible applications of the day's lesson at the end of every class, and casually ask her friends who had been raised in the world of magic about things they had never before considered.

It was in her third year that the girl joined her house Quidditch team. At first, the girl was glad to have secured one of the empty Chaser positions, but Delwyn quickly realized that the position was far more stressful for her than it was fun. Having to score on someone in order to gain points, meant seeing the look on the face of the Keeper that had failed to block her goal. Still, there was nobody to replace her, and the witch spent most of that year passing to her fellow chasers so that they could score the points themselves. The next year, Delwyn tried out for Seeker, a position that fit her much better than Chaser ever would. Her petite build was useful for speed, and her genuine smiles prevented the other house teams from growing too resentful whenever she caught the snitch.




RP EXPERIENCE: Do I still need to answer this?

HOW YOU FOUND US: That is a very good question.

MAIN CHARACTER: Katrina-Carlotta Du Hunt

CHARACTER PURPOSE: Darren mentioned that we needed students (especially 5th years), and I've been wanting to try my hand at writing a sweet, un-tragic character. Plus, I currently have students in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin- figured it was about time I made a 'Claw.

Nice! Nice to see a character that isn't loaded with trauma. It's a rarity here, and you've done it well.

Accepted and sorted to Ravenclaw!
