WESTBROOK, McKinley

on Mon Feb 13, 2017 8:27 pm
           
MAIN
They were the last people you'd expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they just didn't hold with such nonsense
   
   

   Character's Legal Name: McKinley Westbrook

   Age: 13

   Hogwarts House: Sort me, please!

   Blood Type:  Half-blood

   Species: Human

   Face claim: Alina Kovalenko
   
   



               
APPEARANCE
...Aunt Petunia often said that Dudley looked like a baby angel - Harry often said that Dudley looked like a pig in a wig
   
   

McKinley is the average height for a thirteen-year-old girl, and she is a bit on the slimmer side. Her straight red hair comes down just past her shoulders, and she usually incorporates some form of braid into her everyday hairstyle. She doesn't like for her hair to be completely down, since it tends to get in her face while she's trying to read a book or take notes in class.

McKinley has light blue eyes that have a bit of an upturned shape to them. They are often squinted, with her brow furrowed in contemplation above them. She has a fair complexion with sprinkles of freckles sprawling across her nose, cheeks, arms, and legs. She has the type of skin where if she is exposed to the sun for longer than thirty minutes, she needs to put on sun lotion if she doesn't want to get burned.

Outside of school hours, McKinley wears what she considers to be the latest, most trendy designer outfits. She does this simply to flaunt the family money and keep up with the latest fashion, not necessarily because she has a great sense of individual style. She always wears full makeup and is generally well-groomed.
   
   



               
PERSONALITY
......If only the hat had mentioned a house for people who felt a bit queasy, that would have been the one for him
   
   


--POSITIVE TRAITS--


  • OPINIONATED - McKinley has many opinions and she feels all her opinions very strongly. When she believes in something, she will fight for it until the cows come home. If anyone disagrees with her, she will do everything in her power to make them see their error.

  • LOYAL - Despite her sometimes cool demeanor, there is nothing more important to McKinley than her friends and family. She will go out to bat for those close to her time and time again, and once you have made a friend in her, she can be extremely difficult to shake off.

  • DETERMINED - When McKinley sets her mind on something, there is little that could hold her back from it. The rest of the world slowly fades around her and the only thing that matters is that she achieves her goal.

  • COMPETITIVE - McKinley has an unstoppable drive to be one of the best in everything she does. However, if there is an activity which she is not reasonably good at naturally, she will immediately blame the activity itself for being stupid and refuse to participate in it any further.

  • ​INQUISITIVE - McKinley has an unmistakable curiosity for the world around her and how it works. She is notorious for doing things like leaving the faucet running with the bathtub already full simply to see what will happen. However, just like in this situation as well as many others, her curiosity has a knack for getting her into trouble.


--NEGATIVE TRAITS--


  • SELF-ABSORBED - McKinley has been spoiled by her family's status and money for her whole life, so sometimes she forgets that other people matter too. She doesn't mean to be like this, she honestly just doesn't know any better.

  • VINDICTIVE - If there is any real or perceived wrongdoing committed towards McKinley or any of her friends or family, McKinley will immediately seek revenge on the party responsible.

  • SNOBBY - Having such a pampered background, McKinley tends to hold everyone and everything up to the higher standards in which she is accustomed to. If she thinks she is too good for something, everybody else will definitely hear about it.

  • BOSSY - Being the eldest of four siblings, McKinley has always taken on the role of "second mommy". She believes that she knows everything, and that the other kids are being blessed by receiving her "advice". She is not afraid to take charge in social situations.

  • MANIPULATIVE - McKinley is used to getting her way, and she is willing to go to any means to achieve her goals. She is good at observing little things about other people and knowing what to say to get them to bend to her will.

   
   



               
HISTORY
..................Hey! My eyes aren't 'glistening with the ghosts of my past'!
   
   

   Early Years:

McKinley lives with her mother, father, brother, and sisters in London, England. Her father works in The Ministry of Magic in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. McKinley's mother gave up her work when she became pregnant with her in order to devote all her time and energy to starting her family. Through all of their flaws, the Westbrooks pride their family above all else, and it was exceedingly important to Maren (McKinley's mum) to be as personally involved in her children's lives as possible.

McKinley and all her siblings were home-schooled before attending Hogwarts. She is fiercely protective of her siblings, and would do anything for them. Being the eldest of four, McKinley has always had to be a bit of a second mum and is constantly helping to take care of them. She doesn't really mind this most of the time, as she has gotten used to it and she enjoys helping her family out.

McKinley loves to travel, and can constantly be found reading about other cultures and Wizarding communities around the world. The majority of this fondness comes from the fact that it was important to her parents that their children see as much of the world as possible - they believe that the more educated a person is, not just in school study, but in the different cultures of the world around them, the more successful they will be. That being said, the Westbrooks go to a different country over the summer every year.

   Hogwarts Years:

McKinley is currently in her third year at Hogwarts. She is a bit of an over-achiever as far as classes go, having never missed a homework assignment. However school-focused she is, McKinley does classwork not only because she enjoys it - but she also sees it as a means to an end. She wants to grow up to be successful, and she knows that she needs to be well-educated in order to do that. It is honestly her life's goal to be The Minister of Magic one day, though she wouldn't necessarily admit that out loud.

McKinley is outgoing and amiable, even if she may come off a bit strong sometimes. She knows that having friends and alliances is just as important as getting good grades. She does like most of her classmates, but she is still kind enough to the ones she doesn't like.

   After Hogwarts: TBD

So I'm thinking perhaps Gryffindor or Slytherin for her. Do you have a preference either way? I'm leaning more towards Gryffindor, but if you think she's more cunning than brave we can go that route too!

Hey Adrienne! Smile

I personally don't mind either way, but I know that McKinley would ask the hat to be placed in Slytherin, if given those two options! Thank you <3

That can work, then! I'll get her sorted and then you can look through claims to see if you want to sign her up for anything. Don't worry about the Face Claim - I can go ahead and add that for you. But we do have things like clubs and Quidditch teams that honestly don't get used enough if you'd like to look there for some plotting! And you can also post up a request or any of that stuff now too Smile
