APPEARANCE
------------------------------------------------------------


    HAIR COLOUR: Dark Brown

    EYE COLOUR: Brown

    COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: Tall

    BODY BUILD: Average, but a little muscular and some slight amounts of fat.

    GENERAL APPEARANCE:
    The only thing Alex likes about her genetic build up is her height and her fast metabolism. Her obsession with height finds its roots in her constant need to rise above everyone. In this case literally. Whereas, her thankfulness for her fast metabolism is due to her being a glutton of the highest order. Its very rare indeed to actually catch Alex without food, mostly unhealthy stuff at that. As a result of her excessive overindulging in all matters of the appetite, she doesn't look too frail or weak, but because of her high metabolic rates, she doesn't look overweight or tubby. Overall, she looks average, with a slightly muscular body. The slight muscles are only there due to her obsessions with sports, which are only in existence because of her insecurities of being the only heir to the Marwolathe estate. Despite being a girl and a half-blood at that. So, majority of her childhood was spent being regarded as 'One of the boys'.

    Due to her playing habits and mates, her clothes used to remain invariably dirty and muddy and her hair, though naturally in waves, appears messy due to her lack of attention. This is her appearance even during her adulthood. She simply has not inculcated the basic mannerisms that avoid getting clothes stained and for her messy hair, she blames her genes. her being a klutz doesn't help either. Her clumsiness manifests itself physically in the assorted collection of bruises on her body at any given time. She has dark brown eyes and they are her favorite feature of her face. Her general appearance gives the impression that she is careless and messy, which is correct but it fails to point out her better characteristics. Her few obsessions are heels and necklaces and she owns quite a lot of them. To her other clothing however, she rarely pays much attention except when she goes out with the specific purpose of hooking up, or clubbing. Then, as in at all moments of her life, she must outshine everyone around. She is right handed.

    Mumbles to herself
    Sarcastic almost always
    Messes her hair up if she is nervous
    Her left eye squints slightly when she lies

    BOGGART: It would be her limited friends and few family members that she can stand abandoning her because she wasn't good enough.

    PATRONUS: Her patronus memory would be her twelfth birthday, that is, the last birthday before the D took place. That there were problems in her parent's marriage was known to all, and all the family members from both sides of the family were trying to push them to work things out and remain together. (Again, for the fickle reputation. They preferred a murder to divorce but were too wimpy to actually murder Kiara.) The opportunity they chose for this was Alex's birthday, wherein they threw a big surprise party, self-invited themselves and all of Alex's year mates and generally had a good time. It is Alex's only memory of a proper celebration of her birthday, with cheerful, friendly faces all around her as she blew the candles and made a wish that every year the same thing occurs. The fact that it went fulfilled is another bitter strike in her heart.

    DEMENTOR:The first day of the legal battle of her custody, wherein both her parents refused sole custody.

    VERITASERUM: She is lonely.

    MIRROR OF ERISED: Family.

    PERSONALITY: Alex has put a facade for the world, hiding behind its flimsy walls her many insecurities, fears and damages. Inside, she is broken, outside, a social butterfly, who is super fun to be around. In fact, she has lived behind it for so long, that the boundaries are beginning to smudge and sometimes, she really does wonder who she really is and what is she doing to herself. She also likes to paint herself in a worse light than the way she is. Her soft and easy to manipulate heart is her most vulnerable point, and until now, she hasn't been able to properly safe-guard it. She is a moody, demanding and manipulative person. She is very materialistic and appears to be a shallow, vain, self-absorbed bimbo by first glance. If you scratch a little though, her sharp intelligence, love for adventure, anger management issues and violence. She is humorous and appears to be funny, though in reality her dry sense of humor hides the depression, feeling of loss and failure she feels after her memory loss. Her mischief is really an extension of ‘humor’; when children make you laugh, they realize that gets them positive attention and they then repeat action just to feel visible and to receive affirmation of love. She is also mischievous to the point of what is often misconstrued as insolence, but because it’s never done with malice, it is forgiven and, more often than not, considered rather endearing. And in cases it is not, she slathers on her charms and is not above using any trick in her hand, whether it be sympathy, empathy or sheer manipulation to get her way. Whatever stories that Alex knows of her parent's life before their marriage speak of their love for each other. So from a very young age, subconsciously she had decided that she must have been the cause of its breakdown. of course, as she grew older understood the situation a lot better and also decided that marriage as an institution is too flawed, but somewhere in her heart, she retains her first reaction to any problem. To take the blame for it.

    Arguably, her self-centered nature is also, in some part, the cause of it, as she always over-estimates her impact on other people's lives. Her curiosity, definitely, is an extension of that, mixed with her over-involvement in other people's lives. Her other hobbies, interestingly, include baiting people as it offers her control on people, and arguments make her feel at home. In familiar environment. She has always been a social person, drawing comfort from the admiration and company of others to compensate for the lack of attention received from her family. She likes to be in control, because her dealing with her family always remain beyond it. This need for control, is something that has defined her personality and has stayed with her into adulthood. She can easily befriend people and interact with them (whether it’s to express an opinion or to help them), and she always takes charge of the relationship, irrespective of who instigates it, and above all she refuses to be dismissed. In fact, without fail, she sets the tone for all her relationships, and she also takes responsibility for any change in them Even though she adheres strictly to personal limits set by her, she completely disregards those set by others and unabashedly interferes in their live, hoping to 'fix' every little problem. She dislikes speaking of her personal life, and continued prying of it can resurface her anger which due to its long suppression, is harsh and stormy. Alex's over-involvement with people stems from that desire to be in control to compensate for the loss of control as a child. She can’t fix her past, she cannot resurrect her parent's marriage, and she can’t find comfort in her alien household, so she settles for ‘fixing’ other people’s problems because her own are beyond resolution. It’s why it so often feels like she is overstepping her boundaries.

    Her parent's broken marriage and subsequent affairs have disillusioned Alex on relationships and she cannot bring herself to trust someone not to break her heart or trust. But, her social nature and the facade she puts before the world leaves her with many relationships. As a result Alex is a 'branded' serial dater and serious flirt. She follows one rule religiously, 'leave them before they leave you.' She is also a frequent hard drinker, though drinking began as a way to fit in, then rule the social scene but now is her sole source of comfort

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



    Early Years: Kiara Rookbird and Aaron Marwolathe were young, in love and delusional. They believed that their love could withstand the pressures of the society that come when a UK-famous model and a successful healer marry. It didn't help that it was a half-blood marrying into a pureblood family. Obviously, they turned out to be wrong, and even the birth of their daughter couldn't help matter and when Alex turned 12, they filed in for divorce, ending their 14 year marriage. The beginning of Alex’s third year commences their legal battle for the right to her custody, which neither of them want. This has cut her up a lot inside, but her refusal to talk to anyone about it, or even mention the thing is making it extra hard.Even before the divorce, her parents were cold and hostile towards each other and barely took notice of their daughter. Alex grew up being neglected by both of her parents, instead, the servants took care of her. She used to oscillate between periods of trouble-making extremes to academic and behavioral excellence, all in the hopes that her parents would notice. When she turned eleven, then finally her parents took a little time out of their busy lives to argue about which school Alex would go to. Her father wanted Drumstrange, while her mother wanted Beauxbatons. Sick of them and their arguments, Alex instead enlisted herself in Hogwarts, a decision which she sometimes regrets.

    Hogwarts Years: For the first two years of her school like, Alex was determined to be good. She wanted to make her parents proud, wanted to see them come to cheer her on on important School activities. Together. She was by no means quiet, but kept the more troublesome aspects of her character under careful check and played close to none pranks. She still had no trouble forming friends, but keeping them was still hard work but this time, Alex tried hard to be a good friend and even managed to make a few friendships that looked like they could last. That all changed the year her parents filed for divorce. No childhood speculations of kiddish imagination could convince her that everything would be okay. Everything had changed and Alex found herself changing to cope up too. The worst was, that she wasn't even in control of it anymore. From her third year onward, it seemed that Alex's personal mission was to break all the rules in Hogwarts, participating in all kinds of heists from the mundane class disrupting, to those that could cause serious harm. Breaking into dorms, deliberately misplacing stuff of others, wild parties, accidental and accidentally on purpose fires, vandalism, betting, it seemed that she would stop at nothing until one decisive incident in her Fourth year.

    Up until then, her studies had never really suffered much because of her excursions, Whether it was because - as the general teaching staff suspected - she managed to somehow cheat her way through exams and bully juniors into doing her homework, or because she was just genuinely concerned about her studies and actually managed to stuff in time for it (It was really a mix of the two), but when a prank involving one of the teachers went a little too far and as a result, she was suspended for a month and almost got thrown out. Only her parent's position, her academic track record, and the memories that the staff retained of the young eleven-twelve year old Alex that saved her. It was during this phase of her life that she first brushed against alcohol, and picked up her more seedier talents.

    After this hiatus, she sobered down for most of her Fifth Year, throwing all of her focus into scoring well in her O.W.Ls. In her Sixth year however, Brielle entered her life and she relapsed into her old party-loving self, but this time, she actually managed to keep up some semblance of balance and managed to pass with scored decent enough to scrap into being accepted as an Auror.

    Adulthood: Being an Auror, wasn't something she consciously worked for, but after careful deliberation and analysis, she realized that her talents and interest both lay in the field. Regardless, she likes to retain the image of her careless attitude, and asserts that it was only on a whim that she joined the Auror force.

    Her mother, after the divorce lives a free life from which she barely takes time out for Alex, instead she is busy pretending to be young and happening once again with a string of casual relationships. To some extent, Alex follows her mother on this path, as is shown by her numerous one-night-stands and casual relationships, but no long lasting serious ones. Her father, on the other hand, married Ariadne Ellingham from whom he has another daughter, Alex’s half-sister, Brielle. Alex is extremely jealous of the girl, both for her privileged upbringing wherein both her parents showered her with stifling attention, and for the fact that Brielle is a pureblood and therefore, the star of the entire Marwolathe family, though the official heir remains Alex.

    Lately, after her mother's realization that Alex is her only child, she has begun to take an active, intrusive interest in Alex's life, intent to secure her as the face of the Marwolathe family, even if she was a half-blood.Her family has always been very conscious of their image in the world and were devastated by the ‘fall’ of their 'reputation' when Alex joined the Auror force. They threatened to disown her if she went through with it and though she did go through with it, they didn't disown her. Just stopped all communication with her and banned her from their house, not that she visited them all that much anyway.

    During her first 'mission', a harmless routine check-up of the curfew being adhered to, she was hit by an ‘Obliviate’ curse and as a result her memory has been wiped out. The 'attack' seems suspicious from the start and Alex is unsure whether it was from the dark side targeting her for her half-blood status, her family for the same reason or her mother for the blank slate she would want in order to manipulate Alex. She sustained a lot of injuries in the attack and for the past month has been in intensive care over at St. Mungo’s. Now, however, she has been declared fit and finally released, although technically, she still has to participate in weekly psychiatric check-ups as her memory still hasn't returned. Until she gets a fully medically fit certificate, she cannot get reinstated on active service and is, at the moment, relegated to a desk job and this makes her very frustrated.

    There is an unknown 'wannabe fiancé' in her life, whom she has never met and with whom her mother wants her to marry. Her mother believes that a return to the 'pure-blood' line will better Alex's prospects as heir of the Marwolathe family. Technically, she is the sole heir being the oldest, but her half-blood status makes her position shaky and unsure. Alex however, is dead set against the idea, especially after her recovery, and has never even seen the guy or known anything about him, including his name.

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



    ALSO KNOWN AS: Zoya

    RP EXPERIENCE: 5 years.

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Forumotion.com listings.

    MAIN CHARACTER: This one.

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: Um......I don't get how to answer this >.> xD

    RP SAMPLE:
    Alex smirked at Dr. Miazga's words, raising an eyebrow she questioned, "A slightly flawed one, seeing that the definitions of 'present' are vague and past, more defined." The words were accompanied by an involuntary smile and Alex filed that information dutifully away, noting mentally that questioning logic made her feel happy-ish."Easy there Doc," She remarked, holding up her hands in surrender even though her next words were contrary to any calling of truce. "All I am saying is that, and I quote this, Well her name is Hollie, and she has long brown hair the prettiest brown eyes almost honey color. When the light hits her hair just right there is red in it." She recited in a starstruck voice, straightening up her profile and dropping her legs onto the floor, gushing as she stared far into nothing. Repeatedly blinking, she smirked when she finished, propping her feet back up on the desk. 'No, you absolutely do not have it bad."

    "And that something is dating you?" She teased, settling back in her previous stance.

Hey, Zoya!

Welcome! I loved reading your app. You write really well, and I like the way you've designed Alex. She's a good, strong character, and I always like those who are strong from the outset.

That being said, though, for me, I don't see that Alex carries the mind and heart of a Gryffindor. She carries more the heart of a Slytherin. Both houses carry the dominant personality types, but what I see in a Gryffindor is the overwhelming drive to try to protect the ones they love and the overall society through unyielding devotion and self sacrifice. That's not to say that a Gryffindor can't have much too much confidence. They certainly can.

What I see in a Slytherin is a strong family tie or expectation of a tie due to position or tradition, with an undercurrent, often times, of being motivated for one's own gain.

When I look at Alex, I'm specifically looking for what drives her. Is it the love of others and her desire to protect? Not sure I"m seeing that. I'm seeing that her desire is more driven to protect herself and her own needs, and at sometimes, showing a disregard for the thoughts and feelings of others. That sort of focus, for me, rings far more true of a Slytherin heart.

If I am misunderstanding, perhaps you'd like to clarify for me?

Thanks,
k.

Nah nah :PI deal well with Slytherin too Smile
And you are right about that, Alex is really driven by herself. She is selfish to the core, I just wanted her house to be Gryffindor because it adds some more problems with her being the heir of a pureblood family with deep rooted interest in the Dark Arts. However, now I realize that Slytherin is more suited for her xD And please, you are making me blush Razz

I don't think her self centered nature will make her the darling of Slytherin house either, honestly. LOL. This will be interesting.

Accepted and sorted to Slytherin!
