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

GENERAL APPEARANCE:


You probably couldn't find a person who cares less about their appearance then Augusta Trelawney. This is partly a reason, together with her desire to be left alone rather than being forced to interact with people she does not want to interact with, she went through her Hogwarts years as a wallflower, and as she say she's one of the very few people that graduated without really having any real friends - only acquaintances.

Her dark doe-like eyes that seem to see right through people are her most striking detail. Big and almond shaped, they contribute to the expression of permanent surprise people often think they see when they look at her. Her equally dark hair is often messy and cut short. Since she often cuts her hair by herself her hairstyle never could have been described as glamorous, yet Auguste believes her hairstyle look decent enough to let it go. She cuts her hair in unequal intervals, she can sometimes go over six months without cutting her hair and let her hair fall on her face in messy curls, or she can cut her hair more than five times for a month until she ends with a pixie hairstyle. It depends on her mood.

Her porcelain skin is fair, she never had any problems with it which are a miracle considering she never paid any attention to it, besides basics hygiene as brushing her teeth after every lunch, showering at least once a day and washing her face after getting up from her bed.

Augusta's physique can be described as fragile. A bit on the skinny side, she has a petite body of barely 165 centimeters she often covers with simple, old-fashioned but classy  clothes. Although the clothes might sometimes  seem worn out, clothes are always clean and ironed before she puts it on her body. She loves buying new clothes, always choosing pieces that belong to another decade, but she can't always afford it so some pieces of her wardrobe are over five years old, or even older.

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

//background story about Trelawney family//

Sybill and Joshua married when they were young and Sybill has gotten pregnant soon after that. The pair decided earlier that they won't tell their families they're expecting a child before the seventh month passes, but on Joshua insistence they hid Sybill's pregnancy until the very end of it when Joshua went to get a healer to their home, who delivered a baby they later named Orianne eleven hours after labor had begun. Two years later Joshua filed the divorce papers which Sybill signed without any resistance and left Sybill's life, taking their daughter with him. Sybill, who was suffering from post delivery depression, did nothing to stop him, and after the depression had passed she couldn't find them. The next time Sybill saw her daughter was at Hogwarts when Orianne turned eleven. Although Sybill wasn't par of Orianne's life for ten years and vice versa, the two of them soon formed very strong relationship, being more like a friends than having classical mother-daughter relationship.

//surname issues//

Ever since Cassandra Trelawney become one of the most famous seers, every her female progeny kept their maiden name (Trelawney) after getting married as well as giving their female offsprings the same surname (with father's approval) it was an act of honoring late Cassandra.

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

EARLY YEARS: Augusta was  born when both of her parents were middle-aged, so she never gets to know her grandparents because all of them had passed years before she was born. Although she was a surprise to everyone, she was an adorable baby and everyone fell in love with her at the first sight. Ever as a toddler, Augusta has always been extremely close with her father who stopped working three years before she was born because of arthritis and taken on the care of the household, while Orianne worked as a nurse at St Oswald's Home for Old Witches and Wizards, and therefore couldn't spend as much time as she wanted with her family.

HOGWARTS YEARS: Unlike most of the students, Hogwarts had never felt like a home to Augusta. She tried numerous times, but she simply couldn't get adjusted on being forced to share her room with people she didn't know. The castle was too large to feel cozy, there were too many students to find a lone space for herself. The girl was fairly uninterested for the sorting ceremony and didn't have a favourite house, so she accepted the Sorting Hat's decision to place her among Hufflepuffs without mixed feelings.

She was a good student, never the best one but she had passing scores from all classes she attended and she was satisfied with the result. Augusta liked charms and later divination, and she was surprisingly good in both subject that led her to help others with not so perfect scores. The Hufflepuff was a great teacher who always tried to find the easiest way to solve all the problems, combine that with her humble and shy personality and you shouldn't be surprised because students wanted to hang out with her, to get her know better. Yet since she always had a problem with opening up  to people that often didn't work as they wanted.

Augusta liked loved Quidditch. However, although she was pretty good in flying she never had the courage to apply for a position in Hufflepuff's Quidditch team, rather choosing to watch it from the stands instead. She knew all the rules and was really enthusiastic about every game, even if Hufflepuff's team had lost the game. That led her to become Quidditch commentator in the middle of her fifth year after the last commentator gave up on that job.

She graduated with surprisingly good N.E.W.T.-s.


ADULTHOOD: After graduating from Hogwarts Augusta got a job in the Ministry of Magic as a member of the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad, but soon realised that working in a group does not fit her personality and transferred to The Department of Mysteries a year later where she got a job of an Unspeakable researcher. After the first day at the new workspace, she could tell she was in love with it, in love with the place, in love with the job that was assigned to her. Not that she could actually tell that to someone since it was forbidden, and even if it wasn't there's no one besides her family she could share that with. She worked in a hall of prophecies, appropriate, some might say if they knew considering she is a seer working there, she never agreed with them. Working surrounded with prophecy made her insecure about her own talent, she doubted she'll ever tell a prophecy, she doubted that she'll ever see a white ball with her name on the tag below the ball on the shelves. Regardless of that she loves her job.

Two years after she started her job at The Department of Mysteries Auguste moved out from the family house and found a flat close to the Ministry building, only a couple of blocks away. Renting that apartment was expensive, it took most of her salary but she loved the flat. Although a colleague from work, Louis Weasley, recommended her that apartment  and gave her info about the building since he lived in the flat next to that one, she was reluctant to rent it, mostly because of the price, but the crush she had on Louis ever since she met him had won over and she rented an apartment. She never regretted that decision, even when she reconciled with the fact that there will never be anything between her and Lous when she met his former girlfriend Corrine (she wanted but really couldn't hate such a lovely person as Corrine), the flat was beautiful. It was small, warm and full of sun with unpaired furniture she both on various yard sales. Augusta liked to think that the apartment had a soul, and she wasn't the only one since she had a kitten named Fluffy that came one day and never left her apartment ever since. She likes to joke she didn't get a kitten, a kitten got herself a human instead.

Hey, Aethe.

As far as your character's backstory goes, there's a bit of a problem. Characters not on the canon list can be created but they usually require approval first, so a person doesn't write a whole app and then have it rejected.

As it is, though, we didn't know you were planning on making this one, and there are some problems with the app that will need to be fixed.

I have no problem with Trelawney having been married in the past, even if it was before Hogwarts when Harry was there. However, Trelawney was a very gifted seer. Her prophecies came true and the one you have claimed she made is not acceptable for this site which has already brought him back before. So that will have to be taken out of her history and no longer referenced. It would be fine if Trelawney divorced someone, but as Trelawney is her family name, your character would not have that last name but instead her father's name. The exception would be if both her father and grandfather gave up their names, because children take their father's last name, even in the case of divorce almost every time. So their choice to do that would need to be explained somehow or she'll need to take her father's last name.

There is also a problem with Augusta telling Prophecies so early. Telling actual prophecies is extremely rare, and Trelawney herself had one, maybe two at most. So it is fine if she's good at Divination through things like crystal balls and tea leaves, but having prophecies all the time won't really work. Even always getting a guess right with the tea leaves, for example, would be unlikely. If she did, it would be a problem. That makes your character overpowered compared to others and means that roleplaying with Augusta will be both unfair as well as difficult for the other member.

Those are the main things, though I'll read through agin after you change things to see if we can't make her fit the site better. If you need help altering her, send me a PM and we can discuss ways to make her les overpowered and more suitable for the Harry Potter and PA lore/canon that we go by.

Basing this off of your PM, I have no problem with the naming thing if it's determined that it's a family tradition. Stranger things have happened Razz

I will say, though, because you were confused about the Seer/Diviner difference, you may want to talk to Khaat about it. She's our key Seer lady around here (lol) so she'll have some great info for you. Additionally, we do intend to update our magical abilities lore in the near future, though that's still under construction. So as long as you're okay with keeping her seer tendencies a little bit quiet until you get that information, I can sort her as a Hufflepuff Grad.

(Which, by the way, means she would know Oliver and that he could have been her way into the Order. We're asking people to have a reason or person to attach themselves to the group rather than people joining just because. But if she knows Oliver you wouldn't need to write that out in a thread like you otherwise would.)

Thoughts?

Works for me! I'll talk with Khaat about that soon.
Yup, she most likely know him so I don't have anything against him being the one who recruited her. Smile

Perfect. She's four years ahead of him but they were in the same house, so that works. I'll get her sorted.
