______________________________________________________________________________________

------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION
------------------------------------------------------------

FULL NAME: Barbara Erika Zrinski O'Sullivan

Barbara [bahr-BAH-rah]


Derived from Greek βαρβαρος (barbaros) meaning "foreign". According to legend, Saint Barbara was a young woman killed by her father Dioscorus, who was then killed by a bolt of lightning. She is the patron of architects, geologists, stonemasons and artillerymen. Because of her renown, the name came into general use in the Christian world in the Middle Ages. In England it became rare after the Protestant Reformation, but it was revived in the 19th century.


Erika [e-REE-kah]


The given name Erika is a feminine form of Eric, deriving from the Old Norse name Eiríkr.The name is thus usually taken to mean something along the lines of "one ruler", "autocrat", "eternal ruler", "noble“ or "ever powerful".


Zrinski [zRee-ns-KY]

NICKNAMES: Barbs, Barbie, Rikki

AGE: 11; b. September 1st, 2016
PLACE OF BIRTH: Zagreb, Croatia

NATIONALITY: Croat and British [dual citizenship]

HOROSCOP SIGN: Virgo

Virgo and Independence:

Virgo is a very independent zodiac sign. They are fully able to put their intelligence to use and get things done for themselves. It is possible however that their narrow mindedness causes their creativity to suffer and they may lead regular routine lives. They may dwell too much on the past and over complicate things and this may limit their ability to move forward and confuse themselves. In conclusion, Virgos are able to be independent but the less evolved types will have difficult if someone is not there helping them to achieve more and not be so critical of themselves.

Virgo and Friendship:

People look up to Virgo for friends because they are straight thinkers and solve problems logically. They are truthful, loyal and determined. Some people might find them cold or emotionally detached because they live in their minds, not in their emotions and feelings. It might be hard to pin down how a Virgo friend is feeling because they easily live in denial. A person who is able to read deep into another person will notice when Virgo is not well but if they confront them about it, they would rather retreat then talk about it. It is best to keep your emotional distance from a Virgo friend unless they open up to you first. Virgo might try to analyze and control a friend's life but only with the idea that they will improve their life, not purely for the sake of controlling. Be patient with your Virgo friend and understand that their recommendations are only to make your life better.

Virgo and Business:

Virgos are very intelligent, they have an excellent memory and a highly analytical mind. This makes them good investigators and researchers. They also have the ability to probe into a person's emotions and they can often see into people and detect what their motives are. This makes them great policemen or interrogators. Virgos are very good at problem solving, this is what they do best. They are confronted with a problem, they will pick apart the pieces and put it together in the proper order. They are rational thinkers and are good at settling other people's disputes and putting them on the right track for reconciliation. Any position that requires the above features, which is a very long list, is perfect for the Virgo. They keep the world in order.

Virgo Temperament:

Before a Virgo plunges into anything, from a problem to a vacation idea, they need to analyze all the facts and know all the details before they plunge in and make a decision. This makes them seem indecisive and slow. Virgo's perception is their reality, more so then other astrology signs. What they believe is what will be, if they have a negative outlook on life, things will present themselves to be negative and they will be very moody and isolated/detached. If they are positive, the same events that occur will be held in a positive light and they will be a pleasant, well adjusted person. A Virgo mind is a very powerful mind and they must have the proper attitude for their life to be happy and successful. Virgo needs to get in touch with their feelings, this is why they usually seem cold or detached. They are very prone of living in denial. They will say the feel okay or everything is alright even when it's not. This is an easy way out, the one thing that Virgo does not like to analyze is their feelings so pretending everything is okay is a good defense mechanism for not having to take a closer look at their feelings. Virgo has an unpredictable and sometimes unstable temperament.

Virgo Deep Inside:

They need to be organized in their mind, sometimes all their energy is taken from organizing their mind that they have a difficult time organizing their surroundings. They easily look too deep into an issue and over analyze what they percept. Virgo is ambitious and strives to always know more and have more. This is in their eternal quest to bring order to chaos. Even if order is obtained from an outsiders' point of view, Virgo will not be settled for they have a very active mind that is always thinking and can never be silenced. Virgos want to be of use, they need to be important and essential to everyone in their lives and in everything they do. Virgo's major life lesson is to learn to trust in and have faith in the unknown. They have to understand that things in life happen for a reason that is not always known to them, they do not have to always know everything. They need to learn to calm down and not over-analyze a situation or event. Deep inside, Virgo is very sensitive and they need to be appreciated for all the things they do. When is Virgo is offended or hurt, they may never show it.

Virgo in a Nutshell:

Virgo exists in the mind, everything is inside. To the world, Virgo presents a calm and collected exterior but on the inside, nervous uncontrolled intensity in the mind, trying to figure things out, how to improve everything, analyzing and thinking. Virgo can tire itself out without even moving! Virgo has a constant drive to improve and perfect, this can lead to extreme pickiness and finickiest. They are pure, their motives are honest never malicious and they want to accomplish something.

HOGWARTS HOUSE: Gryffindor

CLASSES: Charms, CoMC, DADA, Transfiguration, and Potions.

WAND: Rosewood, Phoenix feather, 13' + rigid


Rosewood is prized for their visually pleasant timber. This wood has a strong sweet smell, which persists over the years.


Phoenix feather is one of the rarest core types. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn hair or dragon heartstring cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike.
Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.

HABITS & QUIRKS:
- Spinning a strand of hair around her finger when she's bored.
-Crying when something isn't like she wants.

BOGGART:  Shredder from Ninja Turtles will kill her before the turtles save her.
She's a kid, right?

PATRONUS: Fifth birthday.
When she turned 5, her mother took her to lake Bundek in Zagreb where she organized a big birthday party for her with all her kindergarden friends. Everything was pink and fluffy and she had a giant pink cake which looked like princess from her favourite cartoon. That was her best day ever.

DEMENTOR: Mom's death.
She watched her mom slovly dying from brain cancer. None of her mother's collegues couldn't help her. Veronika's motorical funcions started to cancel, she started forgotting who she is, and who her daughter is. Barbara watched her mom's dying for almost two years, she was always near her, helping her, althought she was just 10 year old kid.

VERITASERUM: That her dad won't like her.
When her mom died she got a letter from her, Veronika organized that both, Barbara and Sebastien, got a letter in case she died. In her letter was written that she lied earlier, her father is alive, but he didn't know he had a daughter until now. Veronika also wrote her father is a moody man but that doesn't mean he doesn't love her, and she should give him a chance. Like an evidence she added a picture of Sebastien and her, the only one she had.

MIRROR OF ERISED: Seeing her mother alive again.
When Barbara find out she is a witch the first thought was "Maybe I can bring my mother back, then." She agreed to go to Hogwarts just because of that, because she'll learn how to make her mother alive and healthy again.

PERSONALITY: Barbara seems older than regular 11 years old, pain does that to people. Or in her case watching her mother dies for months. Before they diagnosed brain cancer to her mother she was childish and spoiled but then life teaches her there are worse things than missing her favourite cartoon or lack of candies. There's death of someone she love, watching her pain and unable to help her turned her in different person, older, wiser. Watching her mother's struggle for life, for just another day with her daughter Barbara learned to be grateful for every next day, because she can't know is that her last day. She's brave and understanding, holding her mother's hand in her last moments and not crying, well not a lot of people are capable of doing that. She's always looking for logical explanation of everything, that also make her too skeptical sometimes, but she's also interested in divitation. If she doesn't want to do something she needs to do she'll do it, but too sloppy you'll soon regret for forcing her to do that.

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


Early Years:
Before her birth:
Barbara's parents met while her mom was on vacation in Manchester. 18 years old Veronika met 16 years old Sebastien one cloudy evening in late December. Sebastien was on his winter hollidays back in Manchester with his brother living in his aunt's house. He told her he was 19, and studyng european history on local university. Veronika believed him, he was tall and looking old enough, acting as adult and verry good liar, so she had no reason not to believe him. Veronika was medical student then and the youngest child in her family. They met in night club where Sebastien worked as bartender when she splited her drink few times and after his shift he escorted her to her hotel. They been together the entire time her family was in Manchester, 10 days, and she was Sebastien's first girlfriend.
After Veronika returned in Zagreb and back to collage she started noticing the same symptoms like one in her books, she went on a perusal and discovered she's prignant but she decided to hide that from Sebastien, child's father.
Her family wasn't happy, she was just 19 then, but they gave her their support and helped her.
After birth:
Barbara was born in early morning September, 1st in one of Zagreb's hospitals. Veronika gave her name Barbara because she liked it, middle name Erika, although it's not usuall in Croatia to have one, by Sebastien's brother Christian. She knew he loved Christian and hoped he'll love Barbara too in case they meet if she dies earlier. Also Barbara has two surnames, it's unusual too if the person is not married, but she wanted for Barbara to have something her father's so she added O'Sullivan after her surname, Zrinski. Veronika decided that Barbara, in case of Veronika's death, needs to meet and live with her father. She wrote the letters a week before her death which will be given to them after her death in which she explains everything.

Barbara thought her father died from some disease, it was what her mother told her. She got her mother's letter along with her hogwarts one which came a few days before her 11 birthday so she would have enough time to sort things out and be ready to went to Hogwarts on her birthday. Her grandparents helped her to buy all things she'll need. She's supposed to meet her father at her winter's holidays, according to her mother's plains.

NOTE: Sebastien still hasn't got a letter yet so he has no idea he has a daughter nor that she was on the train when he crashed into the lake.

Hogwarts Years: N/A

Adulthood: N/A

Hey, Rina! Glad you've decided to make a first year!

I'm just wondering if you could maybe put in a couple sentences on what she was like before her mother got cancer? In her history I mean. It sort of jumps over her early ears and I'm wondering why she was seemingly spoiled (as it suggested in her personality section) before her mum got sick. Was she given whatever she wanted because mum was busy? Or maybe mum was home all the time and that's why? I think it would help explain their relationship and give you some more background to use in your posts Smile

And, just as a side note: You probably already know this, but it's not possible for her to bring back her mother. As one of the rules of magic and all. But it would be really interesting to see her try and learn everything in order to do so. Plotting idea, maybe?

I can't edit unless I delete every single link. :/
Anyway:

Barbara was childish and spoiled before her mother died. Expected to got everything she wants, do whatever she wants to do and still be their favourite (and only, then) child/grandchild. They let her doing what she wants and used having no dad as explanation for her acts. Her whole family tried to make every her wish came true, and she used that.

Well, I know that, but she doesn't so that thought is her primary goal and the main reason she agreed to go to Hogwarts.

Yeah, I agree. Definitely an interesting place to start her. And no worries about the edits, I keep forgetting the code does that.

Looks fine to me, Rina!
