LARKSPUR, Dahlia

on Fri Oct 30, 2015 2:31 am



Dahlia Larkspur

______________________________________________________________________________________


------------------------------------------------------------

INTRODUCTION

------------------------------------------------------------



FULL NAME: Dahlia Larkspur


NICKNAMES: N/A


AGE: 12


ALLEGIANCE: Dahlia has been in close association with both factions, leading to confusion as to which one she’s actually affiliated with. (Neutral)


HOGWARTS HOUSE: Slytherin, Gryffindor (but preferably not…)


CLASSES: Potions, Herbology, Care for Magical Creatures. She might attend other classes sporadically.


WAND: While most of the wand is made of yew, parts of the handle are made of hawthorn. It’s roughly 6 inches long- short enough to fit up a sleeve, and easy to smuggle into places. It is surprisingly rigid, and has been known to give people other than Dahlia who hold it splinters. In its core lies a fragment of an incomplete philosopher's stone- not enough to transmute elixir of life, but it certainly makes it a lot easier for Dahlia to transfigure things.


PLAY BY: Valeria Lanskaya





------------------------------------------------------------

APPEARANCE

------------------------------------------------------------



HAIR COLOUR: Tawny brown


EYE COLOUR: Darkish brown


COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: She’s quite small for her age, but is expected to hit a massive growth spurt in her teen years.


BODY BUILD: String-bean


GENERAL APPEARANCE: Dahlia is petite, with long limbs and bones that are visible through the skin. Her skin is unusually pale, but her hands have rough callouses. Her hair is dark and long, and her eyes seem a little too large for her face. Her smile is saccharine- whenever she approaches you, you immediately know there’s something off about her.






------------------------------------------------------------

PERSONALITY

------------------------------------------------------------




TRAITS:


-Intelligent: Dahlia possesses strong skills of deduction, and is capable of picking up new information relatively quickly.

-Manipulative: Dahlia is capable of reading the very hearts of people, giving her the ability to tug at their emotions and manipulate them to her desire. As a result, she can detect when someone’s trying to manipulate her quite easily.

-Loyal: Dahlia is surprisingly loyal to her sister. If you somehow manage to get on her good side, the chances of you being shanked/betrayed/poisoned/tortured for the lolz are drastically decreased.

-Two-Faced: Due to her many dealings with both factions, it is unclear which side she’s truly wrong. After all, she’s not loyal to either cause, but to her own personal revenge.


LIKES & DISLIKES:

   Likes:

-Sweet Foods
-Extremely salty foods
-The sound of a violin
-Schadenfreude
-Using the most innocent of spells for things worse than the unforgivables
-Messing with people
-Alchemy
-Cute animals
-Her sister
-Herbology
-Potions
-DADA


   Dislikes:


-Bitter foods
-People getting the way of her goal
-The man who hurt her sister
-Charms
-Cold temperatures
-Tea
-Coffee



GOALS:

-Kill the man who hurt her sister.
-Learn Alchemy.
-Develop her own spell.


HABITS & QUIRKS:


-Smiles almost constantly. It’s when she stops that you know you have a problem.
-Tilts her head a lot.
-Has been known to find joy in psychologically torturing her fellow classmates.


BOGGART: Herself being stabbed by the man she intended to kill. (Failing her goal)


PATRONUS: Assorted snippets of her playing with her older sister.


DEMENTOR: Watching her sister get tortured from the bushes.


VERITASERUM: She’s afraid of the dark.


MIRROR OF ERISED: Her sister, healthy and well.


PERSONALITY: Dahlia is a compass that only has one north- she’s only focused on her goal of avenging her sister, even if not immediately obvious. She takes joy in teasing and taunting other students, even those older, and is supposedly working on developing a spell for the pure purpose of killing the man who hurt her sister. She’s often quiet, and knows much more than she lets on.


If she likes you, she will taunt you noticeably less, and will occasionally help you out with things- be it by supplying you with secret information, or telling you how poison can be extracted from yew. It’s extremely hard to gain her friendship, however. She either likes you, or she doesn’t.

------------------------------------------------------------

CHARACTER HISTORY

------------------------------------------------------------



EARLY YEARS: Dahlia was essentially raised by her older sister, Heather, working part-time at a smallish farm. She never did many chores, but found joy in teasing both Heather and the man who ran the farm, Jamie. When she was around eight, during a muggle-hunting raid, her older sister was put under a cruciatus curse, while Dahlia hid in a nearby bush, her small size keeping her out of sight.


Wizards have since wiped Heather’s memory of the incident, but ever since, she’s been different. Her expression was one of being haunted, but whenever another person tried to bring it up, Heather would get a confused expression on her face, as if the words were just on the tip of her tongue.


Dahlia changed that day, her smile becoming saccharine and her motives becoming noticeably darker.

Dahlia and Heather largely grew up on the streets. The ministry was largely unaware of her existence until her magical abilities were discovered. By then, she'd just started living by/near a muggle farm, and everyone just decided that it would be easier for her to be adopted by them. Even though her legal guardian works at said farm, she rarely spends any time there at all.

HOGWARTS YEARS: In her 1st year, Dahlia rarely had perfect attendance in all of her classes, save potions and DADA. Somehow, she managed to maintain good grades, in spite all of this. She spent a lot of time at the library, and is currently working to develop her own spell. However, being only in her second year, she doesn’t have enough theoretical knowledge to actually create one. She has a strangely extensive knowledge of poisons, and has expressed interest in becoming a muggle chemist upon graduation.


ADULTHOOD: N/A



------------------------------------------------------------

OUT OF CHARACTER

------------------------------------------------------------



ALSO KNOWN AS: Dullmetal


RP EXPERIENCE: Oh, a bit of this, a bit of that.


HOW YOU FOUND US: Forumotion directory FTW


MAIN CHARACTER: Dahlia IS my main character.


CHARACTER PURPOSE: To RP with?


RP SAMPLE:


Dahlia leaned over the first year student, strands of dark hair falling into her face as she did so. Her saccharine smile never faded, even as tears began to brim in his eyes. "I can save you, if you want." Her eyes glimmered, and his widened with hope. A small droplet rolled down his cheek, and hit the floor. Dahlia leaned in closer, smile somehow even sweeter, until she was right next to his ear. "Just kidding," She whispered.


I was on major time constraints when I wrote this. If you need more information, just let me know. <3

just out of curiosity, who is her legal guardian, then? if mom and dad are both thought to be dead, she would either have a legal guardian or would be orphaned, meaning that the ministry served as her legal guardian.  and--what impact would this have on her?

okay. much better, thank you.  I just saw that as a piece of her history that felt missing when i was trying to conceptualize her in my head. that helps it make sense. she's fine now.

Sorted and accepted to Slytherin!
