Welcome to Potter's Army

We have been a Harry Potter Roleplaying site since 2007. If you're an old member we hope you come check out the discord link provided below. And if you're looking for a new roleplaying site, well, we're a little inactive. But every once and a while nostalgia sets in and a few of our alumni members will revisit the old stomping grounds and post together. Remember to stay safe out there. And please feel free to drop a line whenever!

What’s Happening?
Since every few months or so a few of our old members get the inspiration to revisit their old stomping grounds we have decided to keep PA open as a place to revisit old threads and start new ones devoid of any serious overarching plot or setting. Take this time to start any of those really weird threads you never got to make with old friends and make them now! Just remember to come say hello in the chatbox below or in the discord. Links have been provided in the "Comings and Goings" forum as well as the welcome widget above.

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

    HAIR COLOR: blond

    EYE COLOR:brown

    HEIGHT:5'7"

    BODY TYPE: Slender with rather petite proportions

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Eve is build like a dancer. She has her own sense of style. She loves dresses and loves looking ladylike. She enjoys being a "girly girl." She prefers dresses to slacks or jeans. She likes a natural look, though, and generally wears her hair long, with her makeup simple but elegant. She has her own natural smoothness or grace that the other women in her family admire but some have not cultivated for themselves. Some people mistake that grace with fragility. Eve is anything but fragile. She generally has a smile on her face and is usually contented with life, even when things seem to be tough. She has a calm personality and is rarely rattled by much. She believes in living life to its fullest.

PERSONALITY
------------------------------------------------------------


    CHARACTER STRENGTHS AND SKILLS:
    Dancing
    Cooking
    Dark Arts spells
    Defense Against the Dark Arts spells
    Dueling
    Espionage
    Good at the fine details of things
    Intelligent
    Very loyal and loving when she gives her trust--will fight to the death for what she believes in--once she decides what that is.

    CHARACTER WEAKNESSES:
    Not good at potions
    Not so good with magical creatures unless they're relatively harmless. So dragons? Not a good match.
    has a quick temper
    can be a bit obsessive about doing things right--like not being late, making sure she's organized, etc.
    hard on herself at times
    often lonely
    covers up her insecurity about herself and her self worth with saying she's a homebody but a great part of it is that she doesn't want to be an intrusion to others.
    Slow on truly giving her trust and herself to anyone, has a great many defenses
    Prides herself on being flexible, but sometimes flexible is just a kind way of saying she's indecisive about some things. She would far rather live in the gray, in between spaces of life than to live either solely in the dark or the light.


    CHARACTER LIKES:
    sunrises and sunsets
    a fresh spring rain
    chocolate truffles
    dancing, especially slow dancing
    romance
    reading, sketching, and watercolor painting

    sophisticated music--jazz, classical, blues, wooden flute, etc.
    travelling and sightseeing
    jewelry


    CHARACTER DISLIKES:
    sour candies
    egotistical people
    extreme heat or extreme cold
    muggle technology
    heavy metal music
    okra
    most fast food and most junk food


    GOALS:
    A good career, a handful of friends, a house of her own instead of her apartment, and to find some sort of purpose for her life that gives her a sense of meaning and fulfillment.

    QUIRKS: collects Victorian jewelry but doesn't wear much of it because some of it is rather overdone for her tastes.

    Is a rather disciplined person of habit in her daily life--gets up early, goes for a run regardless of the weather, then comes back and gets ready for work. On the weekends, when she gets up at the same time as she does during the week and goes for a run before anything else. Rarely allows herself to sleep in. Has a membership to a dance studio in Paris and slips off there 3 times a week to practice dancing. She used to slip off because her parents thought dancing was only good if it would help her "catch a man." If she weren't dancing for that reason, they criticized her, but she continued to go practice dancing because she liked it. She's been living independently for a long time, but she still sneaks off when she goes to the dance studio.

    is allergic to the pollen of mandrake flowers. it makes her sneeze nonstop and makes her magic go haywire.

    BOGGART: being alone all her life

    PATRONUS: finding out she was the top of her graduating class at Beauxbaton's that year

    DEMENTOR: She doesn't exactly remember. She remembers that she went to her father's study late one night when she was a small child. She remembers turning the doorknob and opening it, and then feeling tremendous fear, but she has never remembered what happened or what she saw. Sometimes it still gives her nightmares on rare occasion.

    VERITASERUM: She deliberately works hard at being graceful because she fears being rejected by others. She feels more secure in herself if she looks polished because her mother told her that a worthwhile woman was graceful and beautiful--until Eve believed that she was not worthwhile unless she was all of those things. It was why she herself insisted on going to Beauxbatons--so that they might make her a worthwhile woman.

    MIRROR OF ERISED: To feel complete and whole. She's not sure whether she can do that as an individual or whether she needs to have a life partner to do that.

    PERSONALITY: Eve is generally a peaceful woman. She has a lot of inner conflicts, but she tries not to give in to those very often. She is disciplined, and she is loyal to those she loves. She works hard to try to please them just because she wants to. She is generous, passionate and has a good sense of humor. She loves the simple lifestyle she has seen from the people in Paris and Italy, and she tries to live that out in England. She looked hard for a flat that reminded her of Paris or Italy, and she furnished it with antiques and flea market finds so that it speaks to her love of the simple things. Her idea of a wonderful evening is a trip to a farm market for some fresh fruits and vegetables, coming home and fixing up a pasta primavera, pouring a glass of wine, and reading a good book. Her dream date is a simple picnic with good conversation, a fresh baguette, a round of brie, some fresh fruit, and a nice bottle of wine, all while watching the sun go down.

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


    Early Years: Eve was the youngest of four children. Her family has been part of the death eaters, on both her mother's and father's side, for generations. Eve was, as they put it, "a happy little afterthought." It was their way of telling her they hadn't planned on having any more when she came along. Her mother had a compulsion with E- names and so she and all her siblings had E-names. She so resented them calling her Evelyn that she often got into fights when someone teased her over her name. She once got into a fight with a neighborhood boy who was a bit bigger than she was. He had so taunted her about her name that he had made her angry enough that she soundly defeated him and sent him home with several bruises. At the threat of a lawsuit from the boy's family, her family learned that calling her Evelyn was perhaps not so wise. They stopped calling her Evelyn and started calling her Eve.

    Generally, though, her childhood was rather happy. She knew her parents were death eaters, and they taught her early on why being a death eater was important and why it was the only way to live and why she was entitled to have a better life than "those other people" fought for--meaning the Order and Muggles, and, well anybody who wasn't a Death Eater. She was also taught that her job, when she got older, was to make her husband successful and to make him look good.

    Hogwarts Years: It was that desire to learn how to be a proper woman, a proper wife, that drove her to Beauxbatons. Because of Madame Maxine's kindness and tutelage, she lost the need to make herself a trophy wife and began to develop a love of llife of her own. She found she could dance and she took every dance class she could manage while she was in school. She studied the Dark Arts because her family insisted she do so. She also studied Defense Against the Dark Arts because she wanted to learn to defend herself. She also found most of her friends at school were in Defense Against the Dark Arts rather than the Dark Arts classes. Eve studied hard and found herself at the top of her class when she graduated, to her family's delight.

    Adulthood: When her grandfather died, he left Eve a massive sum of money, and Eve has used it very frugally, investing some, banking most of it. She found a flat in an alley off Diagon Alley that she rents every month. It has 2 bedrooms and a bath upstairs, and a kitchen/dining room and a living room downstairs. The dining area has a set of french doors that opens into a courtyard. It is a little walled in garden where Eve has made a sanctuary for herself behind the garden walls. It is full of flowers, some trees, some bushes, and a beautiful flowing fountain, with cobblestone paths and some comfortable furniture. This is the space she spends most of her time in when she is home. Her apartment does not meet her family's approval. Partly because it is small. And partly because they do not approve of her Flea Market Chic she has used to decorate with. She rarely sees her family now, but they do continue to make regular deposits into her many diversified accounts. If she does see her family, she has to go to them, not vice versa.

Strong charrie, I did like the inclusion about the blood status lying, not many people go into detail like that.

On that note, detail was very good throughout.
