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


    Early Years: Ridley Ellington is the eldest of five children, blending more into the background and being the forgotten one. She was always more of a quiet child and tended to close herself off from people, which is still a trait she carries now. Ridley would always find herself travelling to the small flower patch hidden away from the world, a place which she could call her own and would always spend hours tucked away with a pen and paper.

    Her first signs of magic showed when she was six years old and her brother decided to cut the red heads hair in her sleep. With a fit of anger, her brother end up loosing his own hair and his skin turning pink. Something which still amuses Ridley.

    Hogwarts Years: Ridley grew more out of her shell at Hogwarts, when her father passed away she became the sarcastic girl she is now. She pushes people away, and uses others for her own gain. Ridley knows how to stay hidden in the shadows, while she also knows how to make a scene, however the former being the more likely of the two. Her body made her seem like everything was a breeze to the girl, however on the inside she was breaking down bit by bit.

    During her first year, Ridley was the quiet girl who loved to draw and spoke very little, however nearing the end of the year she broke out of her shell more, started to become noticed. Her second year she began to rebel after her fathers death, instead of being the nerdy know it all, she became the loud and sarcastic girl who just couldn't be bothered. The attitude following her through the next few years.

    While she may not be the same girl she used to be, she was still hidden beneath the mask that covered Ridley now. A mask which rarely slips away, but has its moments in showing the vulnerable girl that lays beneath.

    Adulthood: N/A




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


    ALSO KNOWN AS: Spencer

    RP EXPERIENCE: Over a year

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Google, RPG Sites

    MAIN CHARACTER: None

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER:

    RP SAMPLE: It was times like this which made Avery want to rethink her love for all animals. One minute she was perfectly happy, attempting to do the charms essay, which was already late, as the stupid cat lay asleep on her lap. The next minute her hair was being yanked on as he tried to eat it, and he was leaping from her lap and running off in the other direction. To say the least Little Miss Giggles wasn't exactly a very loving pet, and his face matched his personality perfectly.

    "Dammit, Little Miss Giggles!" Avery exclaimed in a huff, her petite figure copying the actions of the grumpy cat and running after him. It would of been fine if he wasn't a fast little bugger, who seemed to love making Avery's life horrible. The worst part of it all, she still loved the cat with all her heart. Even if she was convinced he was plotting her death. The fourteen year old just couldn't help but love every animal possible that she came into contact with.

    Slowly starting to run out of breath, the snake pushed her legs to go quicker up the stairs as Little Miss Giggles idly leaped up them. "Little Miss Giggles, get back here you idiot." She panted out after him, once again her attempts to lure him back failing. "You can attack my feet in my sleep all you like if you stop!" She shouted after the miniature beast, sharply turning the corner of the corridor.

    However what she didn't expect to see was Little Miss Giggles now sitting beside another cat looking perfectly innocent.

First, welcome to PA.

Next, I like Ridley. I think its going to be very interesting for Ridley to go to school and interact with a lot of other characters who tend to be more "planners" than Ridley will be. It will be interesting to see how their personalities either mesh or don't.

She doesn't seem like a Gryffindor to me, and she has a good start on being a Ravenclaw. I usually think of Ravenclaws as having more of a keen interest in knowledge and in learning than I see you mentioning in her app. In all other respects, she fits Ravenclaw for me moreso than the other houses. But an interest in learning seems to suggest that she has more forward thinking than you mention her having--unless she simply has a love for learning just for the mental exercise of it.

Can you clear that up for me a bit?
