PERSONALITY:
+Working is always on her mind even though she often replaces it with some form of physical activity like long runs and walks through the city or the countryside.  The greatest pride of her life are her children and she is very protective of them and anyone else she cares about. Gabrielle never takes an easy road, she likes to fight for what she wants because in her opinion "it's not worth winning if you don't have to fight for it". With her training, she is used to swirling different strategies and possibilities in her mind, always calculating her surroundings for any immediate threats which makes it  almost impossible to surprise her or jump her. That ability came in useful through several situations during her life. Patience is another of her virtues that comes in handy often. She doesn't often show emotions apart when she is either with family or close friends. She is not fond of surprises and paperwork is her greatest foe. She absolutely loathes people who abuse of the weak in order to satisfy their inferiority complexes and equally dislikes taking sides in all things that shouldn't be her concern at all.

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


Early Years:
+Gabrielle was born in northern France somewhere to Appoline Delacour and her husband. Her  grandmother was a veela which makes her a part-veela too from her mother's line. When she was born, her sister Fleur was already 6 years old, she was the second and the last child of her parents. Her childhood passed without any bigger events, her sister went to Beuxbatons academy of magic when she turned 11 years old. Gabrielle was very curious as a child, she liked to explore her surroundings and sneak up on animals though she never attacked a single one. This gave her a light step and an extraordinary ability to stay unnoticed when necessary. As a child she didn't have many friends because she spent most of her days staring at history books. She liked to read muggle history and compare it to history of magic. Her only other hobby apart from reading was drawing until her school days came.

Hogwarts Years:
+Gabrielle spent the first four years of her schooling on Beuxbatons in France with her sister, at least for two years. She was a smart girl and therefore soon topped her class in many subjects especially charms, transfiguration, defense against the dark arts, potions, arithmancy and muggle studies.. all of these leading to developing good memory and fighting skills at such young age. Her first encounter with Hogwarts came in her first year of school, during the famous second task of the triwizzard tournament where Harry Potter pulled her out of the freezing lake and her sister was one of the champions. She stayed on Hogwarts until the end of term with her sister. Three years later before her family finally moved to England, her sister Fleur married Bill Weasley, Ron Weasley's eldest brother on the summer before the final demise of Lord Voldemort at the hands of Harry Potter. Even though their relationship seemed strained for most of the time she lived in England, there was more to come later. Gabrielle finished Hogwarts as one of the top-graded students befriending Jemma who later became a collegue and Khaat who shared a lot of her intrests.

Adulthood:
+After finishing school, Gabrielle moved back to France where she started rigorous auror training after working for a year at French ministry of magic. The training improved her natural ability, talents and skills even further. She became one of the most feared fighters in a very short time. After her training was complete, she met Maximilien Maurine who became her husband at her age of 22. Two years later they had twins, a daughter named Gisele and a son Julien. Max, as herself was a few years older than her, but a good fighter nonetheless. During the demonstrations in Paris due to corruption in the Ministry provoked by a leader of resistance who made the situation ten times worse, Maximilien and many other aurors fell in direct confrontations with the demonstrates.  However, the minister of magic was soon after removed from his position at the initiative of a few surviving, influencal aurors, one of whom happen to have been Gabrielle. Gabrielle became the head of aurors when the former leader was promoted to minister. Gisele and Julien was barely 6 months old when they lost their father. Gabrielle moved fast on the scale, becoming the deputy minister of magic then the French minister of magic. Her negotiating skills made her also the representative of France in the international wizzengamot.
+At the age of 33, Gabrille moved back to England, reencountering with her old friends Jemma and Khaat. Jemma was often in France so she often saw her. Her both children are currently on Hogwarts. Her arrival was most opportune due to the new rise of Voldemort's death eaters. Even though she never joined Order of the Phoenix, she most violently prosecuted death eaters all around the country especially during her short acting as a head of magical law enforcement and deputy minister of magic. Her coming back to England also made her keep watch on the person Harry Potter asked of her in secret. Their relationship was strained even when he was close to death, but he asked her a favor for her protégée that she could not refuse. For the past couple of years, Gabrille was dedicated mostly to her books, drawing and spending summers and Christmases with her children. Right now she is 39 and reestablished in England applying for Auror job due to the newest threat from werewolf attacks.

I can't answer the dolohov question for you. I honestly don't know anything about that.  

as for the font issues, we're doing a site wide update. some of the coding things are still in process and might be for some time yet. we might be offline for several hours yet. i'm not sure.

As per the Dolohov thing: it was a canon list typo error. Nothing more.

Also, you need to PM Emily who plays Gisele, really, because quite a bit has changed with the Delacours.
