MARGO PRISCILLA RICHARDS
______________________________________________________________________________________

------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION
------------------------------------------------------------

FULL NAME: Margo P. Richards

NICKNAMES:  She and Molly Weasley have a tendency to call each other Voldemort and Grindelwald. It’s not the most in-taste nicknames people could have.

AGE: 17, June 26th.

ALLEGIANCE: Neutral

HOGWARTS HOUSE: Ravenclaw – Now, don’t doubt what you are about to read. Margo is an idiot. That much is very obvious.  She’s not a good student, has trouble maintaining focus, and she doesn’t put much stock in learning. What clinched it, beyond the family Ravenclaw trend, was how open minded the girl was. True, she was resourceful. True, she was bold. True, she was loyal. But more than anything, Margo has a commitment to experiencing life in its fullness. The one philosophical commitment she has in this life is to the gaining of new experiences to better understand the world. [I’ve built a lot of her being a Ravenclaw into her personality/history so this is definitely my preference for her. If it wasn’t so important to her arc, I wouldn’t put a disclaimer.]

Gryffindor – if she wasn’t a Ravenclaw, though I would love for her to be as there is some points of her history where being in the House of Intellect has built her character, she would definitely belong to Gryffindor house. She’s daring, fairly uninhibited, and outspoken.
CLASSES: Charms, CoMC.

WAND: Aspen, Veela hair, ten inches, whippy.

PLAY BY: Billie Piper.



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

HAIR COLOUR: Her hair is blonde, ranging from dirty blonde to almost platinum, depending on the season.

EYE COLOUR: Deep brown.

COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: Average.

BODY BUILD: Curvy.

GENERAL APPEARANCE: Margo has medium length blonde hair that she doesn’t let get too long, keeping it about shoulder length. When left untouched, her hair can be wavy and messy, but she’s also been known to straighten it, put it in braids, and clip it up. The blonde contrasts against her dark eyebrows and her dark brown eyes. She has been known to attempt to change her hair color up, taking on a brunette shade.  Her large lips are one of her more noticeable features. She has high cheekbones and pinched cheeks and a strong chin. She’s relatively pale, but tans easily and tans well when she sets out to be.

Margo is fairly fit, as she’s always had enough energy to keep her going. Despite her inherent lack of the coordination required to be athletic, she’s always tried out every sport she could. Football, lacrosse, Quidditch – her hand at rugby actually gave her some muscle she has since lost. She has a mostly toned body, but she had fairly curvy hips, she’s rather busty, and she’s incredibly proud of her caboose. She’s well proportioned. She’s not scrawny, but she’s not above average either. She looks older than she really is, having a very mature look, despite her youthful style.

Margo dresses like she is stuck in a 1990s rap video. She loves beanies and backwards caps, and she never leaves home without donning her hoop earrings. She loves high-waisted, acid-washed jean shorts and crop tops that show off her stomach. She loves cheap, goofy glasses, and anything colorful is something she likes to add to her wardrobe. Much to her friends’ chagrin, she loves wearing overall shorts. And she has tons of ugly sweaters that most people would have thrown out a long time ago.

GOALS:
+Wot?

BOGGART: Her Boggart would take the image of Molly Weasley saying, “I hate you, you moron. You’re beneath me. We were never friends.” This is her unconscious fear – that Molly actually hates her.

PATRONUS: Margo’s first party was probably her favorite memory. No one there knew she was supposed to be smart like her brothers, that she was a failure in school. The only thing that mattered was the fact that she could dance well, hold her liquor, and keep laughing.
She struggles to produce a patronus, not because she lacks happy memories, but because it is a difficult skill. When she does produce a full-fledged patronus, it appears as a sheep.  Sheep are not incredibly intelligent, but they survive by being very selfish. Sheep are also obnoxious and never consider the consequences. And they bounce around.

DEMENTOR: Her first week of Hogwarts was pretty horrible. She was sorted into Ravenclaw, laughed at by everyone in school, and stranded outside of the Ravenclaw tower, unable to solve the riddle to get in.

VERITASERUM: Margo can’t really keep secrets. She blurts them out before too long. Although, she hides most of her life from her parents, as teenagers are prone to do.

MIRROR OF ERISED: Margo wishes she never had to grow up. It’s a silly desire. But it’s there. Never having to get a job, being able to sleep in and hang out with friends, that would be the life.

PERSONALITY: ESFP - The Performer - Extraverted Sensing with Introverted Feeling

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

ESFPs live in the world of people possibilties. They love people and new experiences. They are lively and fun, and enjoy being the center of attention. They live in the here-and-now, and relish excitement and drama in their lives.

ESFPs have very strong inter-personal skills, and may find themselves in the role of the peacemaker frequently. Since they make decisions by using their personal values, they are usually very sympathetic and concerned for other people's well-being. They're usually quite generous and warm. They are very observant about other people, and seem to sense what is wrong with someone before others might, responding warmly with a solution to a practical need. They might not be the best advice-givers in the world, because they dislike theory and future-planning, but they are great for giving practical care.

ESFP is definitely a spontaneous, optimistic individual. They love to have fun. If the ESFP has not developed their Thinking side by giving consideration to rational thought processing, they tend to become over-indulgent, and place more importance on immediate sensation and gratification than on their duties and obligations. They may also avoid looking at long-term consequences of their actions.

For the ESFP, the entire world is a stage. They love to be the center of attention and perform for people. They're constantly putting on a show for others to entertain them and make them happy. They enjoy stimulating other people's senses, and are extremely good at it. They would love nothing more than for life to be a continual party, in which they play the role of the fun-loving host.

ESFPs love people, and everybody loves an ESFP. One of their greatest gifts is their general acceptance of everyone. They are upbeat and enthusiastic, and genuinely like almost everybody. An ESFP is unfailingly warm and generous with their friends, and they generally treat everyone as a friend. However, once crosesed, an ESFP is likely to make a very strong and stubborn judgment against the person who crossed them. They are capable of deep dislike in such a situation.

The ESFP under a great deal of stress gets overwhelmed with negatives thoughts and possibilities. As an optimistic individual who lives in the world of possibilities, negative possibilities do not sit well with them. In an effort to combat these thoughts, they're likely to come up with simple, global statements to explain away the problem. These simplistic explanations may or may not truly get to the nature of the issue, but they serve the ESFP well by allowing them to get over it.

ESFPs are likely to be very practical, although they hate structure and routine. They like to "go with the flow", trusting in their ability to improvise in any situation presented to them. They learn best with "hands-on" experience, rather than by studying a book. They're uncomfortable with theory. If an ESFP hasn't developed their intuitive side, they may tend to avoid situations which involve a lot of theoretical thinking, or which are complex and ambiguous. For this reason, an ESFP may have difficulty in school. On the other hand, the ESFP does extremely well in situations where they're allowed to learn by interacting with others, or in which they "learn by doing".

ESFPs have a very well-developed appreciation for aesthetic beauty, and an excellent sense of space and function. If they have the means, they're likely to have to have many beautiful possessions, and an artfully furnished home. In general, they take great pleasure in objects of aesthetic beauty. They're likely to have a strong appreciation for the finer things in life, such as good food and good wine.

The ESFP is a great team player. He or she is not likely to create any problems or fuss, and is likely to create the most fun environment possible for getting the task done. ESFPs will do best in careers in which they are able to use their excellent people skills, along with their abilities to meld ideas into structured formats. Since they are fast-paced individuals who like new experiences, they should choose careers which offer or require a lot of diversity, as well as people skills.

ESFPs usually like to feel strongly bonded with other people, and have a connection with animals and small children that is not found in most other types. They're likely to have a strong appreciation for the beauties of nature as well.

The ESFP has a tremendous love for life, and knows how to have fun. They like to bring others along on their fun-rides, and are typically a lot of fun to be with. They're flexible, adaptable, genuinely interested in people, and usually kind-hearted. They have a special ability to get a lot of fun out of life, but they need to watch out for the pitfalls associated with living entirely in the moment.

FAMILY & POSSESSIONS
------------------------------------------------------------

FATHER: Philip Richards, halfblood, former Ravenclaw.

MOTHER: Sharon Richards, halfblood, former Ravenclaw.

BROTHERS:


Marvin is twenty-three, and he’s sort of a parent’s dream.  He was sorted into Ravenclaw house, earned top marks, and was the star Chaser and Ravenclaw Quidditch Team Captain. He even somehow made frog choir cool. He was well-liked but spent most of his time in school working hard. Between studying, Quidditch practice, and choir rehearsal, Marvin stayed busy. Now, he’s working as an intern in the Ministry’s executive branch, and is an alternate for Puddlemore United.


Marshall, at twenty, remains the ‘cool’ Richards son. He was the more careless student, focusing more on girls and friends than on school. Still, he scored in the top percentile and beat the school’s previous records, becoming their best wizarding chess champion. He made some money from some tournaments and could have continued for awhile, but upon leaving Hogwarts he was offered an internship with the Department of Mysteries. That’s where he works now.


OTHER: other significant family or family-like people

BLOOD STATUS:  Halfblood.

SPECIES: Human.

SOCIAL STATUS: Middle Class.

PET/S: Use of one of the family owls – Muddle and Bugsy.



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

EARLY YEARS: The Richards children were named after their great-uncle Mars died in the last wizarding war – innocent bystander. Sort of a drag to be named after a dead relative, in Margo’s opinion. Her brother’s thought it meant they had to have some higher sense of purpose. Margo thought it meant that staying out of trouble didn’t keep someone out of trouble – so why worry about the consequences anyway?

Margo had an exceptionally normal upbringing. Her parents both worked in the Ministry, her father in the muggle section of the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes and her mother in the Department of International Magical Cooperation, working to maintain positive relations with muggles (which until recently meant keeping them at an arm’s length). Neither her mother or her father were ever of much importance, so they managed to be involved in their kid’s lives for the most part.

As their first child, Marshall was the apple of his parent’s eye. The spitting image of his father as a child, the boy was spoiled rotten by his doting parents. Every whim and desire was fulfilled, and every weekend was dedicated to making memories with their bundle of joy. Their first two years as a trio was a moment suspended in time, in which all of the world was their oyster and nothing could take away from their happiness.

Once Marvin came, it was a snowball effect. They adored their second child, but the third (an unplanned surprise), came so quickly that they seemed to go from young, new parents to tired veterans. The family grew and they moved into a larger home in the London area, which would become Margo’s home for the next seventeen years of her life. The children were sent off to private schools, enrolled in extra-curricular activities, and had every opportunity given to them.

Marshall and Marvin quickly proved themselves to be intelligent, charming pupils. Every teacher seemed to enjoy the boys and their coaches and activities coordinators saw tons of potential in them. Naturally, everyone was excited for the female Richards to attend. She was a massive disappointment. Margo didn’t understand. She tried to pay attention in class but it was so boooring. She loved break times, and she loved her after school activities – even though she was often in trouble and rarely considered to be the best player, singer, actor, whatever the activity was. But of the three, it seemed she was the average Richards child.

She got over it.

Her magic took a long time to manifest, and had only done so three weeks before her eleventh birthday – she accidentally shrunk all of the furniture in her room. Her parents were happy (more like relieved) when she received her letter, and she was given the full treatment when they took her to buy her school uniform and books. She equated this with a tactic she continues to use against her parents and professors – make them think you are destined to fail, and then squeeze out a pass, and you’ll be given much more credit than you are due.

HOGWARTS YEARS: Margo had resigned herself to the idea that she was the black sheep, and she knew she was not going to be sorted into the house of the ravens with her brothers. She was looking forward to it, really. Something to show that, despite their physical similarities, she was different from her brothers. She was going to be able to build her personality around something other than the fact that she wasn’t smart like her brothers. She was going to be the brave Richards. Or the hard-working Richards. Or the cool, dark, rebel Richards – she was really looking forward to potentially being a Slytherin hottie.

When the hat called Ravenclaw, she openly said “No, I’m not.” The Hat had to call it twice more, before the Ravenclaw Head of House ushered her to her seat, making everyone in the Great Hall laugh. The only person who didn’t laugh was another first year Ravenclaw with long dark hair. Margo spent the first night in the common room with her brothers, listening to everyone talk about their favorite subjects and the books they had read over the summer.

It was on the second day that Margo got stranded outside of the Ravenclaw tower. She could not answer the riddle the knocker had conjured up until a group of fifth years came up and let her in. She chalked it up to bad luck. But it kept happening. On the fifth day, she had to wait three hours. And when someone came by, a snooty fourth year, they pulled the door closed promptly behind them, leaving Margo stranded for another hour. The long haired girl was the one who rescued her – a girl named Molly Weasley.

From then on, Margo set about befriending Molly Weasley. Every other Ravenclaw seemed to think Margo was a waste of space and a disgrace to the House. Margo’s brothers were too busy to noticed she was having the worst time of her life, so she knew she needed to make some friends, or at least one, and she had set her eyes on Molly. She did not succeed that first year, and Molly was gone the second year on a study abroad trip.

Second year was just like the first, except now she was certain she would not make friends within her House. Her brothers were busy being loved by everyone, and she was finding failing at everything she attempted to be pretty time consuming. The only professor who seemed to think she wasn’t the most lost cause they had ever met was the Charms professor at the time, who made an effort to help Margo out. It wasn’t much, but it helped her survive.

The taunting was merciless. If she wasn’t so outnumbered, she would have hit someone, she was certain of that. She took a swing at Cindy Rosswell but was scolded by Marshall, the morality patrol of the Richards siblings. So she bore it all in silence – the waiting outside of the tower, the horrible silence after a professor asked a question, the awkward drop in conversation when she approached a table. At this rate, she was going to drop out by her fourth year.

But then Molly Weasley came back. Margo must have worn her down or something, because she was suddenly always there. Next to her in class, in the common room, at meals, at breaks. Molly was always there. They didn’t have some sort of heart to heart, they didn’t suddenly feel like sisters. But Molly made Colleen McNair switch beds with Margo so the two were closer together. Molly let Margo copy her essays. Molly was her friend.

With someone in her corner, Margo came into her own. People were suddenly leaving her alone (she never did notice the death glares on Molly’s face) and she didn’t have as much of a struggle with classes with Molly’s help. Ducky Baker and Nora Graham befriended her around fourth year. She and Molly expanded their social group as they began to throw themselves into more interesting scenes, bored as they were of their peers. The two got in trouble together, experimented with new styles of clothes together, went to their first music festival together.

Margo barely scraped by in the OWLs. She did surprisingly well in Divination and Charms, but did terribly in Potions and History. Margo has no plans. She has friends, she has a means to survive, and she had parents willing to swoop in and rescue her at a moment’s notice.

ADULTHOOD:

Well, since you pleaded (lol), I suppose I should accept her, shouldn't I? She looks fine to me.  

Accepted and sorted into Ravenclaw.
