BOGGART: (Greatest Fear) That her parents will die in Azkaban

PATRONUS: (Fondest Memory) Her 10th birthday party. Her parents made her a homemade cake and they went iceskating together. It was in a remote enough place that they showed her some magic. They transfigured their shoes into ice skates and enchanted the snowman they had built to skate with them.

DEMENTOR: (Worst Memory) The day her parents were taken by the ministry (see history)

VERITASERUM: (Greatest Secret) It’s her fault her parents are in prison and it should be her in there instead (see history)

MIRROR OF ERISED: (Greatest Desire) Living with her parents in Iceland

PERSONALITY: Kit has always been reserved around people she doesn’t know. Because she spent her childhood in the Muggle world, she always felt she could only truly be herself around her parents and had to keep her guard up elsewhere. Now that she is fully immersed in the wizarding world she no longer has to keep her magical ability a secret. But she still has secrets. She is worried that people will find out that her parents are in Azkaban, but even more worried that they will find out that it is Kit’s fault. She feels a little resentful of the magical world because it didn’t protect her parents better. She especially holds it against the Ministry of Magic, an organization she only knows to be the enemy of her parents.

Kit is excited to start at Hogwarts and anxious to learn magic. She spent the summer reading over her school books to prepare. One of the only places she now can be herself is while immersed in her studies. When she gets stressed, she will often take her books outside and escapes through learning. She knows that her parents were very successful at Hogwarts as well as in the Muggle world and Kit aspires to do the same. Kit especially doesn’t want to disappoint them because of what they sacrificed for her freedom.

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


Early Years: Kit’s parents were very unusual wizards. Both Muggle-born Ravenclaws with scientists for parents, they chose to continue with Muggle careers after graduating Hogwarts. Both went to college and got their PhDs in genetics at Oxford University. They stayed on at Oxford as professors, researching the genetic marker for magical ability. Neither the dean nor anyone else at Oxford knew their true research topic, of course. They were hopeful about bridging the gap between Muggles and wizards as well as advancing magic using Muggle technology.

Unfortunately, most of the wizarding world did not feel the same way. Still reeling from the devastation of the war, the wizarding world was not ready to engage in such a daunting task. Both sides viewed their research with hostility. The Death Eaters looked down upon Muggles and were appalled by the notion of any kind of wizard-Muggle relations. The Order opposed breaking with tradition, didn’t understand science or what could be gained by it, and were frustrated by the lack of focus on what they thought were more important issues. Some who did understand some basic Muggle science were frightened the research would prove the supposed superiority of Purebloods or that the Death Eaters would use it to cull anyone who didn’t show genetic potential to produce magical children. No one understood why they wanted to be a part of the Muggle world over the wizarding one.  

When Kit was about 3, the Ministry decided to shut them down. They quoted some obscure laws about wizard-Muggle relations that hadn’t come up in about 100 years. One of their old school friends who worked at Ministry warned them that they would be coming to take them to Azkaban. It was enough warning that they were able to flee Oxford before the Ministry found them. The next year was spent on the run. Kit doesn’t remember much of this, except a few snatches of terrified nights in dingy hotel rooms, her parents talking in hushed but scared voices. They tried settling down in a variety of places in England, but only were able to stay a few months at most before the Ministry caught up to them. Finally, they fled the country and went to Iceland, to the University of Reykjavik, where they continued their work in secret.

Kit’s childhood in Iceland was a happy one. She attended a Muggle school, made Muggle friends, did Muggle activities. But Kit knew about her powers. She had seen her parents using magic at home and her powers had manifested early on, as in most wizarding children. Unlike most, however, she had to practice not to use them. Not like she could really control them. But her parents told her that the key was to control her emotions- never to get really angry or upset. It was really hard, but Kit tried. She knew she would be in real trouble if anyone at school saw her doing magic, although she didn’t really know why. Later, she would understand that it was because they were still on the run from the Ministry.

Of course, any child has difficulty controlling their emotions perfectly, and Kit was no exception. A little less than a year ago, she was on a class field trip to Eyjafjallajökull, an Icelandic volcano. One of the bullies in their class was giving Kit and her best friend, Alba a hard time. They ran away from him and toward the edge of the volcano. Alba tripped, and, with a look of horror on her face, tumbled into the mouth of the volcano. For extra security, they were tied into harnesses, so Alba didn’t fall in right away. Before anyone could help her up though, the rope frayed and she dropped in. Kit panicked and, without knowing what she was doing, animated the rope to tie onto her friend’s wrist with magic. It was completely an accident. Kit was glad that her friend hadn’t died, but she knew she would be in big trouble. By this point, the teachers were running toward them and saw what was going on. The bully had his cell phone out and was videoing the shocking event, which was online in seconds.

Kit felt awful about accidentally using magic, but was glad she had saved her friend’s life. She wasn’t sure if her parents would feel the same way, though, so she procrastinated telling them. She didn’t want them to be disappointed or angry with her and didn’t understand that in not doing so, she put all of them in danger.

After supper, she was watching Muggle cartoons with her parents, just before the news came on. It was the video of what had happened early that day. You couldn’t clearly see Kit in the video, but the rope typing around her friend’s wrist without anyone holding onto it was damning enough. Kit clearly remembers the horrified looks on her parents’ faces when they saw it. The moment of paralyzed silence before her mother said “We need to take Kit and disapparate out of here” and her father responding “It’s too late, Ava, it’s over.”

Sure enough, within seconds, half a dozen Ministry officials were in their living room, pointing their wands at the three of them on the couch. Her father immediately rose, his hands in the air, saying it was he who had broken the law and to leave his wife and daughter out of it. Her mother started to cry as the Ministry officials grabbed both of her parents and then everyone disappeared. Later she would learn they were taken to Azkaban.

A few hours later, a man around her parents’ age appeared in their house, explaining that he was a school friend of her parents and apparently her Godfather. She spent the next miserable year living with he and his wife in London. Although they were very kind, it was difficult adjusting to the wizarding world, to a new country, and to life without her parents and the knowledge that it was her fault they were in prison.

Hogwarts Years: Kit is just starting at Hogwarts

Adulthood: N/A

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


ALSO KNOWN AS: Steph

RP EXPERIENCE: On and off for about 12 years

HOW YOU FOUND US: Google. I think it was “Post-potter rp forum”

MAIN CHARACTER: N/A/

PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: Kit will be my first character here. Very excited to join everyone!

RP SAMPLE: ((I know in general you don’t RP another character’s actions, but this was a forum I was an ST of and played both of these characters. Sorry I can’t find a better sample!))

Admiral Venn sipped at his third glass of champagne. Although the party had been going on for only a little over an hour, many of the people he had talked to insisted on toasting him and it would have been rude to refuse. He was pleased that, despite the large quantity required for the party, the champagne was decent. Not expensive enough to be something he would order for himself to be sure, but decent. If the toasts kept coming at this rate, he would have to convince one of the servers to start bringing him sparkling water. It wouldn't do to get noticeably drunk in front of the guests.

A young lieutenant he hadn’t met yet approached him. She had short, spiky hair that had been dyed purple and red. This was quite at odds with her pristine blue uniform—almost as wrinkle-free as his was. He frowned briefly at the hair. Despite that it seemed to be awhile since she had last dyed it, judging by the few inches of chestnut brown showing at the roots, he was pretty sure these colors were not military standard. He would need to make a note of her name and discuss it with her later. He didn’t want to make a fuss at the party, but he did want his crewmembers looking sharp

She stuck out her hand for him to shake, which he did. Her handshake was firm, which was somewhat surprising at first given her slight frame. Then he saw the small silver fist pin on her uniform’s collar, indicating that she had a physical-type power. He knew that everyone with a physical power had to undergo rigorous physical training in the Academy. After graduating, most of them usually kept in impressive shape.

“Lieutenant Kairen Tanith, sir.” She introduced herself, and saluted him. “It’s a pleasure to meet you.”

“And you as well, lieutenant.” He replied, smiling. Venn repeated her name to himself in an effort to remember it later.

She raised her glass in a toast and he inwardly groaned. Pretty soon he would lose count of how many lower-ranking officers had toasted him.

“Congratulations on your appointment, Admiral Venn.” She blushed, a mix of embarrassment and awe, as she asked the next question. “How did you come about it so late, if you don’t mind me asking?”

“Not at all,” He replied, though he did mind; he had heard the question more times than he’d been toasted this evening, “Though I fear you’ll find the answer rather dull. The appointing committee merely called me in to meet with them and informed me that they had reconsidered their choice of Admiral. I suppose they just found me more qualified to the position.” It was a lie, of course (except the part about him being more qualified). He had played a part in Ace’s removal as Admiral. But he would keep his end of the bargain and keep his mouth shut as to the reason.

“Of course.” She responded politely. “I think everyone was a little surprised that someone so young had been appointed.”

“Indeed.” He saw his First Officer, a bright young man by the name of Damien Masterson, waving to him from across the room and sighed. “It seems I can’t get away from business, even at my own party. Excuse me Lieutenant Tanith. It was a pleasure meeting you.”
