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

HAIR COLOUR: Dark brown
EYE COLOUR: Chocolate brown
COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: Slightly taller than average, around 5'7
BODY BUILD: Quite thin for her age and height
GENERAL APPEARANCE: Alana has always been the type of girl to present herself with modesty- no huge amounts of makeup, no outrageous hairstyles, and absolutely no revealing clothes. While her fashion may have changed with her age, everything about her is largely the same as she was when she was a teenager. Her hair falls in natural, beachy waves which hang just at her breast, and frames a thin face with a prominent cleft chin and small, yet supple lips. Her eyes can pierce one's soul with a gorgeous, yet typical, chocolate brown colour and dark eyeliner. Her long eyelashes and perfectly structured brows can make just about any man fall into a lust. For Lana, natural beauty is enough, with a few exceptions. Because of her slender core, Alana likes to wear clothes which show off her feminine curves, skinny jeans and low-cut tops included, though the skin she bares is never shown with bad taste.

PERSONALITY:
Alana holds many different personality traits, many of which clash with one another. She was once a kind and soft family woman, but since the disappearance of her daughter, Averie, everything in her life changed. Now, she is very cold and distant to others whom she does not trust. She is very quick to judge others, and is highly opinionated, which both lead to a deteriorating social life. She is not fond of small talk, or conversation at all with people she does not deem worthy of her valuable time. The only people she craves conversation and attention from are her fellow Death Eaters. She always had dreams of marrying young and becoming a housewife; while most of those dreams have dissipated with her daughter, she still fears being alone. Nearing her thirties, Lana is still eager to find a worthy husband, but will certainly never settle for anything but the best. She adores books and reading, and horseback riding is her favorite physical activity- anything that calms her can bring her to a positive mental state. She has a short-temper and is very argumentative, making her the perfect person for others to avoid. While she tries not to carry so many negative traits, it is difficult for her to be herself after such a traumatic early adulthood.

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

Early Years: Alana lived a very privileged life, especially in her earlier years; her parents were extremely wealthy and high-status citizens of the Wizarding World. Her father worked for the ministry, while her mother was a high-class Auror. They lived in a modest, yet expensive, home just outside of London in a quiet, suburbia. Lana never met her father, as he disappeared after a bad experience with the Death Eaters, being one himself. Her mother was broken without her husband, and always made it a point to Lana to never go down the wrong path in her life, and stick to "what women are supposed to do." She was always taught to act like a lady; including napkins on the lap, tea serving and etiquette, cooking, baking, cleaning, and acting like an average British housewife at the earliest age of five. Her mother was always so caring, and easily fit the "feminine, motherly" stereotype of the times. She looked up to her mother as a role model, and aspired to be just like her one day and have her own home and family to take care of.

Hogwarts Years: Alana was very excited to start her years as a student at Hogwarts School, just like both of her parents. Her parents were very straight edge Ravenclaws, and did not get into any trouble while at school and always focused on their schoolwork- much like Alana. She was sorted into Ravenclaw, and followed in her parents' footsteps for the first four years at school. Approaching her fifth year, Alana befriended a group of Slytherins, all in their seventh year. They often toyed with the Dark Arts, and convinced her to join in as well. So began her interest in the Dark Arts and the Death Eaters. Lana began to study curses and dark spells, all while hanging out with the older Slytherin boys who adored the craft. Though she never actually got into trouble, and she still always did her schoolwork, Alana began to get more than simply interested in the Dark Arts, an unignorable crave to join the Death Eaters grew upon her. She regressed the feelings, not wanting to upset her family, and kept her interest in the Dark Arts a secret throughout the rest of her time at Hogwarts, and for many years after graduating.

Adulthood: In her early twenties, Lana was seeing an older Death Eater, named Alen; he was her happiness and her life, and she often dreamed of herself marrying young and starting a family after her mother's close teaching. Still keeping her love for the Dark Arts a secret from her family, Lana grew close to Alen, mostly because he was a Death Eater, and she figured that he was her closest option to being a Death Eater herself. They got a flat together and lived as if they were a married couple, and Lana always treated him as if he were her husband. Alen, however, often slept with other women while he was seeing Alana, and had a fear of commitment. And when Lana discovered she was pregnant, Hell broke loose in her life. Alen was profoundly upset when he heard the news, and detested the thought of keeping the child. Alana broke off the relationship with him, and moved back in with her parents; little did she know how strongly he felt towards his unborn child. Months later, Alana gave birth to a little girl with blonde, curly ringlets, similar to her father's, and she named her Averie Rose. One night while she was at work, Alana had discovered her ex-boyfriend and father of her child, stole the one thing that she thought was more precious than her own life: her daughter. Through years of searching, Lana began to change, and certainly not for the better. Now, she is a cold and bitter woman with a black aura and a hunger for power. She disregarded her mother's hatred for the Death Eaters and enlisted to join. She is now living an antisocial and angry life, with little to no social life outside of her faction.

RP SAMPLE:
Spoiler:
(ooc: this topic is the first thing that came to mind to write a sample without getting into Alana's plot again, I'm trying not to repeat myself too much  Smile )

Today was the day. The day that all little girls plan and giggle over. The day where two amazing and beautiful families become one. Today was the day that Jane was to wed her beloved John. Jane rubbed her eyes in a sleepy haze, it still didn't seem to be real to her. She felt as if she was still dreaming, and when she woke up, everything would be as it was seven years ago before she met the love of her life.

Jane leaned up in her fluffy bed, stretching her limbs as if they were rolls of taffy. She relaxed and sat, staring at her white linens and how her almost iridescent canopy hung from the bed and danced in the breeze from the open window. It was a sunny morning in June, such a wonderfully stereotypical way to wake up on the morning of your wedding, and it was even better than Jane could have hoped for. Across the room, she saw her gown hanging from the closet door, almost waiting for her to slip inside and meet the love of her life once again. It was donned in gorgeous lace from top to bottom, with delicate diamonds and pearls strung along the waistline. She tried to imagine the look on her fiance's face as she walked down that aisle with her father's arm tucked firmly under her's. She hoped he would like the dress, he had always liked lace.

Just the thought of her soon-to-be husband, cleaned up in a light grey suit with a peony on his breast, hands linked, waiting for his bride to walk down the aisle, brought a smile to her face. She got up from her bed and made her way through a hallway of squealing bridesmaids and a misty-eyed mother to make it to the washroom. Everything felt different on that day, even the warm shower that she took every morning felt different. It was like she could feel each individual droplet of water on her bare skin, and every tiny bubble from her favorite cinnamon bun body wash. Her hands trembled as she delicately applied her foundation, matched perfectly to her ivory skin-tone; she could not get her mind off of him, especially of the day they first met.

It would be wrong to say that her life was better before she met him. No, it was absurd to say that her life was even good before she met him. Before John, every day was a fog- a grey, dense sadness which would never be lifted. Every day was the same monotone notes before she walked into that ice cream shop which she called Hell. But when he walked into the room, it become a chorus of wind and brass instruments creating a beautiful symphony. She could remember the moment like it was yesterday. John walked into the lively pink room, her shift had just ended, and he sat directly across from her at the cow-spot shaped table. His skin, a beautifully toasted shade of brown, with a neatly trimmed chin strap around his jawline. His eyes looked like melted pots of chocolate; his straight, white teeth gleamed in the bright industrial lights. And at that very moment, she knew he was the one. The one who would make her days sunnier, happier, and all-around better. And, boy, was she right.

Today was the day that she had dreamed of for her entire lifetime.
