    EYE COLOR: Brown.

    HEIGHT: 5'6" - so just above average for her age.

    BODY TYPE: Slender - the curvy-but-not-fat body.

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Jemma is the kind of woman who still hasn't given up on caring about her appearance. She will always dress in the clothes that suit her best, though she won't necessarily follow the latest fashions, she will always look well-dressed. She wears a variety of blouses with black skirts for work/formal occasions, though for day to day activities she'll wear casual dresses most of the time, her preferred colours being the warmer ones - yellows, pinks, oranges, etc. She isn't a fan of trousers, shorts, etc..

    Her hair is just below shoulder length, a dark brown and is wavy. She doesn't usually style it too much, she usually just leaves it down. For formal occasions though she may do something fancy. If she needs to tie it up for whatever reason, it will always be in a bun. Her eyes are brown and her skin is white, though she tans extremely easily so often looks a little brown, except in the middle of winter. She will wear a bit of make-up, but no more than a little mascara, blusher and concealer usually. Not a full face of foundation, just little bits here and there.

    PERSONALITY: Jemma isn't as quiet as she used to be. She's not the most outgoing, but due to her sudden job changes and other events, she has had to become more confident. She is still a very loyal person. She kept in touch with a lot of students after they graduated - most of Hufflepuff, as she loves her house dearly, and other students who had an affinity for Divination or just that she got on well with. She still sends them OWLs, but hasn't met them up in years. She used to be such a happy person, but things have changed and she doesn't always have a smile on her face like she used to. Jemma is good at making friends and keeping in contact, but she doesn't make many close friends. She gets afraid that those close to her will leave her, which has happened multiple times in the past, so has subconsciously not let anyone become to close to her.

FAMILY & POSSESSIONS
------------------------------------------------------------

    MOTHER: Lydia Isabella Foster (née Tiquelle) was a pureblood witch who was born on September 7th, 1930. She was a Seer and had great career plans, but she fell in love with a Muggle and so gave up the wizarding world for him. She worked as a Muggle secretary, though left after the divorce. She worked at the Ministry, in the Department of Mysteries, as she was a Seer, before retiring at 62 in 1993 and died of illness at age 66 on December 7th 1997.

    FATHER: Michael Harold Foster was a muggle, born on April 27th 1929. He worked at the same company as Louisa (he got her the job) as an accountant, earning a fair amount of money - hence how they could afford to live in London. Jemma has no idea what he did after that, she assumed he retired and died of old age as did her mother.

    BROTHER: Charles Harold Foster was also a muggle, born May 16th 1961. He went to muggle school along with Jemma and lived with his father when their parents split. He wanted to follow his father into accounting, but Jemma has no idea where is is at the moment. She assumes he stayed in London, but has made no effort to try and find him.

    DAUGHTER: Marie Lydia Dupont (née Tiquelle), her daughter, is a half-blood witch born November 19th, 1993. She went to Hogwarts in 2005 and graduated in 2012. She met someone at a Tri-Wizard tournament during her fifth year in Hogwarts, a guy named Jean-Claude Benoît Dupont. They stayed together through her final two years at Hogwarts, then he proposed once she graduated. She said yes, and they married the following summer, on May 18th, 2013. They currently live in France together.

    SON-IN-LAW: Jean-Claude Benoît Dupont, born March 9th 1992. He married Marie Lydia Dupont (née Tiquelle) on July 18th 2013, and the couple now live in France with their children.

    GRANDCHILDREN: Phillipe Benoît Dupont born April 29th 2014, currently twelve and in his first year at Beauxbatons Academy.

    SOCIAL STATUS: Middle-class.

    PET(S): None.

    OTHER POSSESSIONS: Nothing out of the ordinary, apart from a lot of Seer/Divination related equipment - crystal balls, etc.


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


    Early Years: 1964-1975, 0-11
    Jemma grew up in a relatively normal muggle lifestyle. Her and her brother went to muggle schools. She was above average intelligence and worked hard, so her grades were always pretty good. Some of her magical and Seer abilities started to show, but only in small amounts. She just seemed to know what would happen a lot of the time, which her mother caught on to. She had nothing amazingly magical, she could do little things like move objects and such but she didn't know what it was and it scared her, so she tried her best to hide it. Until she turned eleven, she had a lovely childhood and she was just a sweet but shy little girl.

    When Jemma turned eleven, she received her Hogwarts letter. This explained everything to her and she was ecstatic to find out she wasn't a freak or strange - she was a witch! However, this left some explaining for her mother to do. Her father left her mother in an instant, saying how he could never trust her again as she lied to him all these years. Her brother, now sixteen, was old enough to choose who he lived with - he chose his father, as he didn't want to be surrounded by magical people when he wasn't one of them. Her mother returned to the Ministry to work and they moved to another flat in London. They lived a magical lifestyle for a couple of months before Hogwarts. These two months Jemma will never forget - being introduced to everything in the wizarding world.

    Another reason that Lydia, Jemma's mother, did not disclose that she was a witch was because of the upcoming war - Voldemort rose into power when Jemma was six and her brother, Charles, was nine. However, being a Seer, she had foreseen it years before and since she was a Seer, she would be a target for Death Eater recruitment. Hence she changed her name when she married and such. Jemma had her suspicions on this being the reason from her late teens, though they weren't confirmed by her mother until she was a bit older.

    Hogwarts Years: 1974-1982, 11-18
    Jemma loved learning about magic, at least for the first couple of years at Hogwarts. Like all the muggle-born students, she wanted to discover as much of the magical world as she possibly could. She was sorted into Hufflepuff, as was her mother, and she loved all of her Hufflepuff friends. She wasn't necessarily very close friends with them, but she spent a lot of time with them and she had fun.

    In her third year she took Divination and it was confirmed that she was infact a Seer. Professor Mannings, the Divination Professor at the time, was not infact a Seer though. She loved Jemma at first, though became jealous as Jemma was a Seer so by her fifth year Jemma was better than the Professor. Luckily during her sixth year, a new Professor was hired called Professor Trelawney. She was extremely eccentric, she was also a Seer and the two of them got on extremely well. Her NEWT Divination classes were very enjoyable, there were only two of them taking it! Her and another girl from Gryffindor called Eileen Davis. The two got on fairly well and with Professor Trelawney too - it was Jemma's favourite class.

    In her fifth year, Jemma was made a Prefect of Hufflepuff house. She was delighted, as was her mother. She became quite good friends with some of the other Prefects, especially with the other Hufflepuff Prefect, Jonathan Pierce. They ended up dating for half of their fifth year and almost all of their sixth year. However, he broke it off at the end of their sixth year and Jemma was devastated. This was the first close person to be taken from her, and it it her hard, though it certainly wasn't the last. She was also really good friends with one of the Ravenclaw Prefects, Cailigh Williams, but she had lost touch with her after graduation at some point.

    NEWT Grades:
    Outstanding: Astronomy, Charms, Divination and Transfiguration.
    Exceeds Expectations: Arithmancy, Herbology and Potions.

    After Graduation, Secretary at the Ministry: 1982-1993, 18-29
    Over the years, Jemma became really close to her mother, despite the age gap between them and the fact that Jemma was away at Hogwarts for the majority of the year. After Hogwarts, Jemma moved back to live with her mother in London and got a job at the Ministry, though only as a secretary (you had to start low down and then work your way up), and spent many years of her life there. She was never that social, she was friendly to people at work but didn't see them outside of work.

    Chris then came along and changed it all. He was an Order member who was working at the Ministry, as an Auror. He was strong and brave, an ex-Gryffindor, traits that Jemma admired greatly. He was the one that got Jemma involved in the Order of the Phoenix in the first place. They became friends, which then developed into something more. They stayed together for two years. They moved in together and everything. Jemma saw a lot less of her mother, though it when when her mother really needed her as she had retired as of then. Chris was lovely to Jemma and they were in love. Everything seemed to be going fine. Too fine.

    Post-Chris Breakup, Post-Marie's Birth, Unemployed: 1993-1997, 29-33
    It all changed when once Jemma got pregnant though. Chris, despite being over thirty at this point, freaked at the thought of a child and soon left Jemma. This caused Jemma to go back to her mother, who comforted her, despite Jemma having barely seen her for the past two years. Jemma in turn looked after her mother as she was getting quite old now and needed taking care of, and together they raised the girl. They lived in a small apartment in London, with only two bedrooms - one for Jemma and the child, Marie, and one for her mother. Jemma soon had to quit her job at the Ministry to look after the baby - the three of them could just about live off of Lydia's pension and some savings that Jemma had, but they didn't have the most extravagant lifestyle to say the least.
    Jemma was called to the Order in 1995 as Voldemort rose once more, and she came willingly, although she did have to look after Marie so couldn't do so much. Voldemort was alive, but he wasn't doing so many attacks - at least he wasn't at that point in time. They just had to be extra careful to protect each other, which is what they did. Jemma became particularly close to two girls who were of similar age to herself - Emily Langham and Rachael Kerr. The three of them went out together on a regular basis, they were the closest friends Jemma had had since Hogwarts.
    Voldemort was in the open as of mid 1996, and all hell broke loose. Emily was killed within a few months, on Order business and she got into a duel with many Death Eaters, though Emily did take down a few with her. It shook Jemma and Rachael completely. Jemma didn't properly fight in the battle of Hogwarts in 1997, since she wasn’t a massive fighter, her duelling needed work. She felt bad about it, but knew she would be absolutely useless. She went to the castle, leaving Marie with her mother for the day. Not that her mother was very capable anymore, her illness slowly getting worse, but it was alright for a short while. In the battle, Jemma was one of the ones chucking crystal balls down with her old Professor, Professor Trelawney. They did win the battle, but Rachael was killed. She was a good dueller and took many Death Eaters with her, but Jemma couldn't take it. Everyone she loved seemed to be leaving her.
    Her mother died months afterwards. Her illness had weakened her immune system so much, that it couldn’t fight off a small bug that was going around. Jemma did take her to St. Mungo’s but was told there was nothing they could do, it was Lydia’s time to go.. This left Jemma devastated. She felt that everyone who she had loved had left her. She felt it was her fault, that everyone who she got close would always vanish from her life, causing her to withdraw from society more in the future. All she had was Marie, but she couldn't exactly tell her four year old about her problems. She did gain some money from her mother's will though, which she used to live on for the next few years. She returned to the Ministry, but as a low-down secretary once more - she couldn't handle anything bigger, she was too upset at the time.

    Post Emily, Rachael and Lydia's Deaths, Secretary at the Ministry:1997-2012, 33-48
    Jemma hated living in her mother's old Apartment alone, so moved as soon as she could across London. She was further from the Ministry, but she didn't care. It was her way of grieving. She couldn't deal with seeing the things that reminded of her mother everyday. She was all alone now. For the first time. She had never been that social before. She had always preferred to be close to one or two people. Now that none of them were there, she felt like she was lost. All her colleagues had accepted the fact she wasn't social, not realizing her circumstances. She had Marie, but Marie went to Hogwarts at eleven.

    During Marie's time at Hogwarts, the two of them became very close, much like Jemma had done to her mother. During her fifth year, there was a Triwizard Tournament and Marie met a guy from France, Jean-Claude Benoît Dupont, who she completely fell for, and who felt the same way back. They kept the long distance relationship up and shortly after graduation Marie moved to France, not realising how much this would hurt Jemma at the time. Marie was close to Jemma, but her love for Jean-Clause proved even stronger. Jemma had never felt that much for a man, even Chris those many years ago, so didn't understand it at all and felt completely deserted.

    Post-Marie's Departure, Divination Professor (and Head of Hufflepuff as of 2017): 2012-2022, 48-58
    That is how Jemma decided to take up a teaching position at Hogwarts. She applied for Divination, as she was a Seer, after all. She had attempted to block her sight before, not wanting to know what was going to happen. She had feared her mother's death for a long time. Now she had nothing to fear though. In her opinion, the worst had already happened. Aside from Marie dying, of course, but that wouldn't happen. Children rarely predeceased their parents. Jemma had a strong feeling Marie would outlive her, and her strong feelings were usually correct. So from her perspective, things could only get better. As soon as she began teaching, she realised how much she loved it. She had been a Prefect when she was at Hogwarts and had helped tutor younger students a lot before. She had always had a knack for teaching, though had never considered it before as she didn't want to leave London, as everything had been there before.
    Jemma had a good time at Hogwarts. Professor Tiquelle, as she was known to the students. She taught Divination for a couple of years, before she was then promoted to Head of Hufflepuff. She loved her job. Being around people all day stopped her from being lonely. She always had things to do. She got on well with most of the staff, though the only person who she would consider particularly close was Gabrielle Delacour, despite the fact she was much younger than herself. They just clicked. The age difference didn't seem to matter. Truth be told though, not many Professor's were her own age. Jemma would visit her family in France from time to time, though less frequently as time went on.
    Then there was yet another Battle of Hogwarts. This time she stayed and fought. Her duelling had improved though, so she could put up a reasonable fight - as long as she picked her opponents carefully. Her job was to take care of the students more though, as opposed to fighting. They won this battle, at least.

    The Muggle Lifestyle, Painter and Gallery Manager: 2022-2023, 58-59
    However, then the Death Eaters rose once more and all Professors who were in the Order had a choice - their position at Hogwarts or their Order member status. Jemma chose the Order, because if there is one thing she is, it's loyal. She ended up living in London again and going back to her painting, something she had always missed. She ended up selling pieces and living in the muggle world for a while. She attended Order meetings here and there, though not much seemed to be happening with them from what she could tell. She ended up becoming completely distant to the wizarding world.

    Just like her mother, Jemma ended up taking a muggle job. She started working in an art gallery in London. She started going by her middle name, Louisa, just so nobody from the magical world would know who she was - as she was a Seer, she was in lists and such in the Ministry and didn't want to be recognised. She loved art and she was hard working and so it was a good job for her. She earned muggle money, had a muggle bank account and bought muggle food and had muggle friends. Still no close friends, but she would go out and have fun with these friends. She barely kept in contact with anyone from the wizarding world anymore. She has a box of everything magical inside her apartment, at the bottom of a cupboard. She hasn't opened it in years now. Though she always kept her wand on her, just in case.

    Secretly, she missed magic. It made life so much easier. She doesn't use it at all now, even at home. She can still see into the future, but she has blocked most of it out by this point. She doesn't want to be reminded of the life she used to have. She didn't know how to go about getting into the wizarding world once more. It would take someone else to initiate things, which is what happened.

    Dane Saget and Medi-Witch at St. Mungo’s: 2023-2024, 59-60
    She was just doing the same thing every day, getting bored of it and wanting more and more to return to the magical world. It wasn't until she was sitting in a café and some foolish wizard decided to apparate into the middle of the room, forcing her to do some quick memory wiping charms. Despite not having performed magic in at least five years, she still managed to do it - she had always worked well under pressure. From then on, she had decided she couldn't live without magic any longer. She decided to stick with the name Louisa. If any Death Eaters came knocking, they may know the name Jemma Tiquelle since all Seers were listed in the Ministry and she was sure they would love to have a Seer.

    She then ran into a man named Dane Saget at the Leaky Cauldron, who she then started to date for a while. He was a lovely man, a couple years younger than herself, but apparently he remembered her from Hogwarts and had always kind of liked her. They went out for a while and had a really good time. They slowly started drifting apart though, not seeing each other so much. Neither of them really knows what happened to their relationship, but something did, and it pretty much disintegrated.

    Almost a year later, she had gone back to selling art but still remained a witch, she ran into Michael Tremaine and Robert Lupin in Diagon Alley, who pretty much offered her a job at St. Mungo's on the spot, which she lept at. She went to work for Mungo's for a while, helping healing and such. She was a good witch, and though had never done anything medicinal before, she picked it up quickly and assisted around the hospital where needed. It wasn't her ideal job, and she still painted on the side, but she liked seeing everyone and being a part of the wizarding world once more.

    Post-Dane and Secretary at the Ministry: 2024-2026, 60-61
    She quit about six months into the job though, feeling dissatisfied with the work. She had gotten over the fact that she had a job in the wizarding world once more and discovered that she actually got quite bored of running errands all the time. She wasn't the most skilled of healers, so she didn't do much medicinal work, and though she loved the people, it wasn't enough to keep her there. She said she'd keep in touch, but truth be told it didn't really happen. She went back to painting once more after that.

    About six months later, she decided she couldn't paint for a living and needed to get a job. She wanted to do something exciting, something she loved. However her track record wasn't the greatest with getting bored of jobs fairly quickly. She looked at the Ministry, but there weren't any openings in anything she liked the look of. Then she remembered that they internally hired for most of the good jobs. Knowing this, she took a job as a secretary in the Ministry once more, hoping for a better job to open up somewhere else that she could grab before hiring opened to the public. She missed teaching though, or more so her students. She had truly loved her students. Even though she was over sixty, she felt like she still had plenty of her life ahead of her.
