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

    [s]She is also very strong emotionally (meaning, she can get through things easily).
    [s]She also is apathetic.
    [w]She has horrible short-term memory, she can’t remember what she did yesterday (I’m being dramatic, she could remember if she concentrated enough :p).

    [w]She isn’t very social, she tries but with no prevail.
    [w]She is apathetic.
    [w]She hates potions, she never seems to get it right.

    [L]She likes the quiet
    [L]She likes green and she likes blue.
    [L]She likes snakes and she likes cats.
    [L]She finds pleasure in public humiliation (with others and herself. The way she sees it, if they are talking and laughing about her, then they are still thinking about her. And to her, it would be so much better to be remembered for something than to be forgotten.).

    HABITS & QUIRKS:
    [H]She tends to overanalyze things.
    [Q]She also likes to analyze people’ names in her head using Arithmancy and is smug when she gets something right. (for example her number is five and it means she likes to takes risks and is quick to anger).
    [H]She also has a fear of looking into people’s eyes. Not because of the mind magic that could be performed on her but because she doesn’t want to seem intimidating.
    [H]She also has a diary she writes in whenever there was a big event in her life, but she writes it as if it is about another person.

    BOGGART: Being alone forever (isolated)

    PATRONUS: Her first friend agreeing he would be her friend

    VERITASERUM: Her crush on one of her teachers.

    MIRROR OF ERISED: She doesn’t know what she wants so she doesn’t know her greatest desire.

    PERSONALITY: She is smart, ever since she was young, books were her best friends (beside Leo, of course). She always seemed to relate to the books she read and found joy in reading absolutely anything she could understand. One of her personality faults is her quick temper. When the kids made fun of her for being a loner, she was quick to fight them. However, when her mother taught her how to retreat into her "happy place" she never fought in school again (though her temper never left her). He is very reflective, she tends to sit down and think about things that happened throughout the day that were different from her usual schedule, and think about it on repeat. She is easily pleased, and it amuses those around her to no end (especially Leo). She is naturally submissive, she always does what she is told. Heather is very quiet, sometimes never even talking for days. Finally, Heather is ambitious, she is constantly making small goals for herself, including finishing all her homework, which she treats herself with reading a book or a treat from the stash of chocolate frogs she stashes in her trunk. However, the biggest ambition she has is to remembered by at least one person when she dies.

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


    Early Years: Heather is an only child, but unlike most only children, even though she was showered by gifts she wasn’t truly wanted. Her Mother conceived her from a one night stand with her Father. Her Father had a future ahead of him, he would become a doctor and graduate from his college on the Dean’s list. When he heard he got Amy pregnant, he had to drop out of college and help Amy with the child. And since they came from very strong Catholic households, he was forced to marry Amy. They were both resentful at first, both hating they had to give up their lives to start a family. On January 13, 2011, Heather was born. While bringing up their child, they wanted at least something good to come out of this whole situation. So they threw caution to the wind and threw everything into their relationship. They went on dates in order to build trust, and they raised their daughter with all the love they could deal with. It was when Heather was three, when their fake little world burst. Amy had found out John was cheating and they fought constantly. They wanted to divorce each other but their parents refused for them to do that. So in an effort to get Amy and John back together (or together in the first place), both grandparents of Heather sent both Amy and John on a much needed honeymoon. John’ parents and Amy’s parents took turns watching Heather during their honeymoon. Their honeymoon turned out to be a full six month vacation, their parents were so pleased with their progress that they just kept sending money for them to live off of until they got back. When Amy and John got back from their vacation, they were very much in love. Two months later, did Amy find out she was pregnant again. They were so excited, they were expecting again! Three months later, while picking up Heather from Amy’s Parent’s house did Amy and Heather get into a car accident. No one was hurt, physically at least. The impact of the two cars jostled Amy so bad that she gave birth to a stillborn baby later that night. Trying to find a scapegoat, John blamed Heather. He was always angry with her and always found fault in what she was doing while growing up. It wasn’t until Heather was five years old did John stop blaming Heather. But it ended in something that is her worst memory to date, he called her a mistake and that he didn’t even want her to begin with. Immediately after he said that, Amy slapped him across the face and yelled at him to see reason. It took a few days and it was exhausting for all three people. To compromise with Amy, he decided to himself he refuses to be a part of Heather’s life. He never flat out told Amy that but she could see it in his actions. Due to Heather’s feelings of being unwanted, she never made friends at elementary school. It wasn’t until she was eight did she make her first friend. Leo, was very nice to her and took her under his wing and their friendship was a strong one. The only problem with their friendship is that he is a muggle and she is witch and he couldn’t go to Hogwarts. Thus bringing us to her Hogwarts years.

    Hogwarts Years: (depending on which house you sort her for these are the outcomes)
    Ravenclaw: She was the quiet one, always reading and observing others. The Ravenclaws ignore her existence and are only happy when she gets them points. She isn’t social anyways, so it is fine with her. She likes to write the drama in her journal and she also likes to write about her day to day activities as if someone else was living them. The name she uses in her journal is “Nyx” a girl with black, short, but spiky hair and brown eyes. She sees the other Ravenclaws bully other students, and doesn’t even care. Nothing exciting has happened at all in the past four years thus bringing her to her fifth year.
    Slytherin: Immediately she was bullied from the pureblood Slytherins for being a muggleborn. However, once they seen her receive a lot of points for being smart with the reading materials, they laid off her. Now they just ignore her, and pick on her only during class when she can’t to get the spell right. She is found mostly outside writing in her journal (look up in the Ravenclaw paragraph to know more detail about it), or inside the library reading. She knows there are kids being bullied and harassed by her fellow Slytherins, but she could care less. She isn’t very social, so the only times she really talks is during class or in the hallways when she says high to the friendly faces or when she talks back to the bullies who bully her (if they go too far). Otherwise she just goes to her “happy place”.

    Adulthood: N/A



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


    ALSO KNOWN AS: Anna (my real first name) or Hade (my nickname for my character)

    RP EXPERIENCE: I role play a lot on the site Shelfari, but since amazon took over, the site is updated three times a day and is highly annoying, so I went off to find another site.

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Google, I typed in: “the best rp sites’

    MAIN CHARACTER: N/A

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: To help along with the big plot. You need some of those background characters, yes? Those poor souls that help fight the light side (or dark side) that are played by actual people. Because unlike what most people think, there is a story behind one of the backdrop people of the group. And since I am not guaranteed an important role, I am satisfied to be one of those stories.

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:
    : (I chose the first time she sees Hogwarts in first year)
    Heather:
    Heather sat, gaping at the magnificent school. The boat rocked her to and fro, in a gentle manner, making her calm and centered. The wood, the boat was made of, hurt her butt. It was way too hard and uncomfortable to be able to sit for very long and she hoped she wouldn’t have to. The castle was filled with majestic arches and towers that looked like it came from olden times. The lit up castle itself made a huge impression on her, especially in the night.
    “Duck your heads!” bellowed a voice behind her and she ducked without thinking. She looked down towards the water and noticed how endless and mysterious the lake seems to be. Heather saw something move and quickly looked up, and refused to look down at the rhythmic water again, at least until she is can properly view it in the day time. A few minutes later her boat was docked and her other companions got out before she did. When they got far enough, Heather could already hear from their unquiet voices, “She is weird, she didn’t even respond to your questions, Joy!”
    Oh. Someone asked her something? Heather shrugged and muttered, “Whatever.”

Lovely application!

The only things I need from you is to add some more to the personality section and tweak the bit in her history about her having depression. I feel as though she was a bit too young to understand it and to truly have depression but perhaps instead of that the feelings of being unwanted affected her abilities to make friends rather than the depression?

Thanks! I tried Razz
Sure no problem (about the personality)! And the feelings of being unwanted still makes it sound okay, so sure!

And, I edited my post

Thanks for the fast reply! (:

Oh, I have to change my face. I went to face claim earlier and must have read too fast and missed the claim. Sorry, I will fix that right now.

Fabulous! A very nice application! Welcome to Potter's Army Anna!

Don't forget to do your claims and when you're ready, post a thread up in the roleplay request area to get some plotting started!

Wonderful!
