    EYE COLOUR: Blue

    COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: Around average, five feet and 6 inches.

    BODY BUILD: Slim, lightly muscular

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Vivianna is quite pale, and because of this bruises quite easily. She's also not very coordinated sometimes, meaning that she practically always is injured somewhere on her body. She has three accident-related scars; on her left elbow, under her chin, and across her right hipbone. Vivianna's hair is almost always an uncontrollable mess, so she tends to wear buns and braids. Her eyes are a shade of blue that she likes to call "icy", that she inherited from her father.

    When she's not in the Hogwarts uniform, she likes to be in thick stretchy black tights and a loose shirt. Just like her cat, she adores heights and climbing, and can often be found in a tree or on a tower ledge doing homework. Vivianna wears a small gold band on the fourth finger of her right hand. She never takes it off, and her favorite cousin wears a matching one.

    PERSONALITY: Vivianna can be both a very kind person and a very cruel person. Her two cousins often joke that she has "two faces", a nice face, and a mean one. Unless she is in a bad mood, she tends to be fairly nice to people she isn't well acquainted with. She also honestly likes to help out small kids. However, if she does not like you, she can be rather vindictive. Vivianna is incredibly good at avoiding people when she's in a bad mood, because in these types of moods she just can't deal with other people. If someone bothers her when she wants to be alone, it's never a pleasant conversation.

    Her father basically ignores Vivianna when he isn't telling her how he expects more of her, and her relationship with her mother is incredibly distant and strained. Due to this, she has developed problems with truly trusting others. She has a female, half-vampire cousin who is the only person she trusts completely and utterly. The two girls wear matching rings, look fairly alike, and are often mistaken for twins.

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


    Early Years:
    Born to Peter and Tessa Varnes, Vivianna is the perfect example of a child who everyone assumes will never want for anything. As the only child of her wealthy family, she has new known what it is like to lack possessions or similar comforts. Growing up, she rarely ever saw her father, and when she did it was usually so he could tell her what he expected from her and how she wasn't currently achieving that. Vivianna's mother faced the same treatment from the fearless man, causing her to spend most of her time in her study. In an attempt to make up for the lack of attention, Mrs. Tessa Varnes would shower her daughter with gifts, causing Vivianna to have a dislike for expensive trinkets, wishing for things with meaning.

    Vivianna spent as much of her childhood at her aunt's house as possible. Her aunt and uncle lived only a short walk away, and the close family was just what Vivianna craved. She wasn't too fond of her vampire uncle, Simon, who scared her slightly, but she adored her cousins to death. She often considered the two young half-vampires her siblings, and looked to her aunt as a mother figure. At five years old, she already had a permanent room across the hall from her aunt. It took a few years, but her uncle did grow on her, and by ten she was just as close to him as she was to her aunt.

    Vivianna was quite excited to attend magical schooling when she turned eleven; the only downside was that her cousins would not be attending with her. While vampires were legally allowed to carry wands, her aunt had been afraid that the discrimination against her children would be too much. In the end, the woman had decided on homeschooling them.

    Hogwarts Years:
    While incredible excited to learn and practice magic, Vivianna was also rather nervous. She wouldn't have her aunt to pet her hair if she got sick, or her favorite tree to hide in if she got upset. She had no clue what to expect, and wondered if her parents would even bother to write.

    Vivianna turned out to be pleasantly surprised; she received mail from her family fairly often, and got along well enough with her housemates. It wasn't until the middle of third year, that she lost her nickname as "The Hufflepuff Slytherin". A fourth year had crowned her with it, as she was always helping others out and being rather kind. However, receiving letters from her father never put her in a good mood, and after reading the worst one yet at the breakfast table, she ended up snapping at every person who talked to her, succeeding in making two first years cry. Previously, she had managed to hide her bad moods, but after that incident she began to embrace them.

    After that she wasn't nearly as popular around her housemates anymore, and tended to just stick to herself. While she definitely wasn't hated, her previous friends would never talk to her for more than a few minutes. She had also gained quite the reputation for being a person one didn't mess with.

    Adulthood: TBD.




------------------------------------------------------------
BEHIND THE CHARACTER
------------------------------------------------------------


    ALSO KNOWN AS: Kitty

    RP EXPERIENCE: Very little, just with friends mostly.

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Google- "where to rp"

    MAIN CHARACTER: Vivianna Varnes

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: My first character, to role play and join Potters Army net.

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:

    Vivianna was sitting alone in a compartment at the back of the Hogwarts Express. There was a potions book propped on her lap, and her feet rested on the seat across her. She looked out the window, watching as the trees sped by, attempting to mentally calculate approximately how long until the train would arrive at school. Her thoughts were interrupted by an irritated meow, which had come from the dark brown ball of fluff next to her.
    "Yes, yes, I'll pay attention to you," she muttered, reaching over to stroke the soft fur. "Don't disappear when we get to Hogwarts, alright buddy?" she said to the creature, knowing full well that he always vanished for a while to explore, whenever arriving somewhere. Vivianna just shook her head slightly before leaning it against the glass of the window; hopefully they'd be at Hogwarts soon.

Welcome, Vivianna!

Your app looks good. I like her. She's eclectic enough to be interesting. I think it should be fun seeing her on the boards.

Technically, she's a halfblood, just to clear that up. And we do not offer Dark Arts as a class, but I can add you to the others.

I will go ahead and accept her and sort her to Slytherin. If you have questions or need any help, just let us know!

Finally saw this, it appears to have been hinding from me! That's for the complement to Vivianna's character, I think I'll have fun on the boards with her.

Just wondering, how do you "attend class"? Thanks

Classes are a bit slow right now. All you need to do is click on the link for the class in Hogwarts.

But--you could start here: https://www.pottersarmy.net/f152-roleplay-request

and make a request for someone to do a thread with you someplace on the grounds or elsewhere in the school. Just a thought.

I've replied to a fair number of requests, if I don't get an answer back from anyone soon I'll make my own. Good idea!
