Ariane can be found wandering the halls in bare feet and with twigs twisted intricately into her hair.  Her uniform often has flowers or other parts of plants snarled up on it.

PERSONALITY:

Second oldest of the Catchpenny girls, Ariane possesses the supreme confidence that can only come of having both someone to follow and plenty of people to push around.  Even she wouldn't deny that she loves being in charge, yet she'd be the last person to volunteer for any leadership position (something she would deny).  She can never stand to do as she's told, either, whether it's because she's not used to it or because she's convinced she knows better.

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

EARLY YEARS:

Ariane grew up in Catchers Cant, a rural village with a high magical population.  Living in Catchers Cant is like stepping back in time (probably due to that magical influence), so she and her sisters had a very relaxed childhood.  It's the kind of place where children can run about barefoot or play on the green with people barely batting an eyelid.

HOGWARTS YEARS:

So far, Ariane's years at Hogwarts have been run-of-the-mill, something she is highly displeased with.  She yearns to become popular, or at least better known.  

A mediocre student for the most part, Ariane nevertheless has some talent with herbology and potions.

ADULTHOOD:

n/a

Technically, it's expected that there should be Habits for a character since everyone has them, along with at least a paragraph of Hogwarts History, given that she'll have been there for four years. It would really be preferable for those sections to be filled out, or added onto (respectively).

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "secrets," given that she doesn't seem to have any, but perhaps I'm mis-reading it.

Currently, I'm inclined to put her in Hufflepuff, if that sounds alright to you.

Yeah but I don't know what her habits are if I haven't RPed with her yet. I don't actually understand why you'd put habits in an app since I'd think describing those things would be part of the point of RPing.

Her history will be added to as she gets fleshed out. I mean, I can add a bunch of word vomit here just to get her accepted but I'll just have to come back and change it later. All my characters start out with vague histories, it's just that I can write you a vague history in more words if required.

Most people have secrets. If you start from the premise that a character is a person, she probably has some.

I don't mind about houses. Hufflepuff sounds fine

I guess it's just different lately, where we expect more history and detail. It's just changed over the past year or two, I think. People tend to have a character extremely unpacked before they start writing, so it's easier to start threads and find plots. But if that isn't a concern of yours, I suppose it's fine. I'll put her in Hufflepuff, then.
