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



    Early Years: At least 1 paragraph of your character's history before age 11

    Raina Labelle was born to muggles, Jauvert and Amelia Labelle. She is an only child but grew up around animal companions and rode horses in her spare time. It wasn't long before her parents started to notice strange things happening around her. Raina would often disappear as a small child only to reappear outside hours later, latches to some of the gates would mysteriously open, and strange weather would sometimes follow temper tantrums. At one point her parents believed that either the house or Raina was possessed and called in the Bates family, to do a paranormal investigation and cleansing of the house. Although the Bates could not find anything paranormal with the house Raina And Trisha quickly became friends. This friendship was only strengthened when they both received letters to Hogwarts later that summer and it seemed as if they were fated to be best friends.

    Hogwarts Years: Raina being a muggleborn was very nervous about first coming to Hogwarts. She had heard rumors about purebloods who would call her names and put her down and with her fear of failure these kinds of people terrified her. It was her goal to prove them all wrong and to convince them that no matter what kind of blood ran through her veins she would beat them at everything. Thankfully, she met many friends who were accepting of her blood status and they taught her how to stand up for herself. After awhile the scared little girl that she used to be was no longer. Yes, Raina still had her doubts and fears but now she was more confident in herself and she would always stand up for what she believed in. But overall, loved her early years at school and was often found pouring over books in the library about magical creatures or at the edge of the Forbidden Forest trying to find new critters. Raina was also often with Trisha Bates, her partner in crime and other mischievous activities. She thought of Hogwarts as her home and while there were ups and downs she still loved the castle and all its inhabitants (living, dead, not human) dearly.

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



    ALSO KNOWN AS: what you'd like to be known as out of character
    Bella
    RP EXPERIENCE: I’ve done rp’s with some friends but not in a website/internet format

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Addie referred me
    MAIN CHARACTER: Raina Labelle

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: I wanted to join

    RP SAMPLE: [spoiler]
    As Raina walked into Hogwarts she was immediately awed by the sheer size of the castle. It was still unbelievable that this would be her new home. Thousands of thoughts and concerns spilled into her mind. What would it be like here? Would she make friends? What if she failed a class? Raina quickly shook her head and forced the thoughts out.

    “Calm down Raina,” She muttered to herself, “You’ll have Tris and Vonnegut and everything with be okay.” She smoothed her robes, stood up a little straighter, and walked to the boats with the other first years. She, Raina Labelle, was a witch.

Raina,

First, welcome to PA. Your app is well constructed, and I really like the strong interest in magical creatures. Nice.

I only have one thing. I'd like to know her history just a bit better. Would you please write a bit more about her early years and about her Hogwarts years so far, please?

Thanks,
k.
