    3. Curious. Sometimes her desire for information is a little too much and curiosity killed the cat.

If/When she’s satisfied with her hair, she’ll examine her nails to make sure they’re all order and look pristine. She is also known to play with the necklace from her mother quite a bit.

    BOGGART: Best friend sharing all of Annalise’s secrets to the world

    PATRONUS: The day her mom skipped work and the two of them got ice cream and walked along the coast the entire day.

She loves to have control of a situation because she likes to know everything that’s going on. Curiosity gets the best of her sometimes. She doesn’t consider a lot of people as “friends” they’re more of acquaintances, but she does have a handful of very close people who are her friends. She also loves to gather any information that is out there. It’s not that she wants to hurt anyone; it’s more of for insurance. She wants to be in control just in case. Although gathering all the information and taking control, Annalise isn’t a very outspoken girl. She’ll get her words in here and there, but she’s the listener rather than the talker.

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


    Early Years: Annalise grew up in a wealthy family. Her great-great-great-grandfather on her mother’s side was one of the wizards who discovered/created the Muffling Draught. The money from him has been passed down through the line since each generation only had one child. Even Annalise and her parents continue that tradition. Her father is originally from France and immigrated to England after he finished schooling. He speaks French fluently and made Annalise learn as well, but without practice in years, she remembers some, but not all.

    Before Hogwarts, she grew up around both worlds: wizard and muggles. Her mother was a true half-blood with her mother being a muggle while her father was a wizard. Because of this, Annalise’s mom knew the importance of growing up knowing muggle things just as well as the wizarding world. Because of this, Annalise went to muggle elementary school before being shipped off to Hogwarts.

    There, she made friends that ended up hating her, calling her a freak. It became difficult for Annalise to control her magic at times. She only lasted in muggle elementary school through second grade before her parents pulled her out. After this, her family went through quite a rough patch. Her parents divorced after her mother discovered her father cheating with a veela when he went to visit his family in France. Annalise’s mother kicked him out with nothing to spare, and then it was the two of them. Annalise has grown a strong hatred for veela since her father left.


    Hogwarts Years: While at Hogwarts, Annalise learned how much she loves power and control, which showed her how much she wants to climb the Ministry of Magic ladder. She doesn’t want to be Minister herself, but a head of department wouldn’t be too bad. She has her eyes set on the Magical Law Enforcement Squad so that she can use some kind of information to help take lawbreakers down.

    While at Hogwarts, Annalise also learned how much she likes to learn – information that is. She thinks it’s an interesting task to learn others’ secrets and share or not share. It really is the big question. She thinks that if people were more honest about what they really did or what they really thought then bad things wouldn’t happen. Or the hurt wouldn’t be as bad – just like with her father.

    Adulthood: N/A




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


    ALSO KNOWN AS: Lizzy

    RP EXPERIENCE: I’ve been on a couple other RP sites. One x-men one and another Hogwarts one – although I didn’t stay there long. Been doing it for about a year.


    HOW YOU FOUND US: Friend told me about it

    MAIN CHARACTER: N/A

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: So I can roleplay and have fun?

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:
    Annalise walked into the library past the rows of books upon books. The Hogwarts library had been a comfort with its musty smell and the way she was able to disappear into whatever world she chose. Passing the tenth bookcase, she turned right to walk through the row, past the end of the bookshelf and immediately on her left was the table and chair she normally sat at.

    It was taken, of course. Annalise stood there for a second waiting for the young Hufflepuff to move. Annalise was much older than this first or second year. She should have prior claim to the chair. After a moment of playing with her hair, sloshing her tongue around in her mouth, and a small cough, Annalise realized that the Hufflepuff wasn’t going to move.

    “I’m sorry, but you’ve taken my seat. Can I have it back?” Annalise asked arms crossed. The Hufflepuff looked at the hovering Annalise and returned to his studies. “Ever heard of respect your elders? What about chivalry? You’re not going to give up your seat for a poor girl?”

    The Hufflepuff sighed, collected his belongings and walked away from the table, leaving Annalise to claim her prize. She sat down in her newly reacquired seat, opened her book, and dove into the magical novel she was reading.

Hey, Lizzy!

Welcome to PA! I've read your app for Anna, and I like her. However, I'm thinking she's going to have some difficulties in either Slytherin or Ravenclaw--for a couple of reasons.

First, Slytherin is built on a foundation of not just tradition but also of the importance of pureblood purity. If she's a halfblood, she might have difficulty accepting the idea of pureblood superiority that the Slytherins believe so much in. I think she might accept the idea of the importance of tradition, as such, but since she's been raised in both worlds, she'd have far more tolerance of muggles, halfbloods, etc., than the average Slytherin. Thats a bit of an obstacle for her.

Second, as a Ravenclaw, one of the hallmarks of a Ravenclaw is not just their intelligence but their love of learning. Anna likes to learn, but she doesn't like to do all the work to get there. Not exactly holding with a Ravenclaw.

However, of the two, I think she's a better fit as a Ravenclaw rather than a Slytherin. Do you have a particular preference for her being a Slytherin? Or would you be okay with her being sorted into Ravenclaw?

Haha I was having trouble figuring out which two to put on my app myself. I felt like she fit in either Ravenclaw or Slytherin, but wasn't exactly sure on which one. To be honest, I don't have a preference for either. I'm totally okay with her in Ravenclaw as well. I can definitely see where you coming from with those two obstacles though.
