Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

Dionisia hasn't spoken to her family since she was eleven years of age.
Despite being blessed with generally pretty features (by societal standards!), Dionisia has little desire to do anything accentuate or bring attention to them. She stands at a slightly taller-than-average five foot, four inches tall, and has a thin build. Her hair is light brown, though does appear dark blonde in bright lighting. She has nut brown eyes and thick brows. She dresses in clothing typical of working class women, though frequently wears her mediwitch robes. She is right-handed.


Notable elements of his/her personality:

Incapable of Hearing Differing Opinions | When Dionisia believe she's right, she's right, and almost no one is capable of convincing her of otherwise. The only exception is with her career, where she readily listens to the advice of superiors and even equals, especially when a treatment isn't working.
☛ Dionisia's boggart is being burned at the stake. You know, like muggles did to witches.

☛ Dionisia is heavily into political activism. As a teenager, she thanked the charities that helped her with her education, but learned later that many of the ladies involved were more interested in looking good themselves than the poor.

☛ Dionisia would only marry a man who treats her as his equal.

☛ She learned to cast a patronus by one of her fellow mediwizard/witch trainees when she was seventeen. It takes the form of a potbelly piglet, which she thinks is pretty cool.

☛ She probably jokes that her amortentia smells like the blood of rich men.
1867 | Dionisia is born to her parents, a middle class muggle preacher at the local Anglican church and his wife, a meek housewife. Though loved by her parents, she was frequently cared for by the family's nurse/kitchen maid/general servant.

1873 | Dionisia begins her education under the watchful eye of a governess. Her education is primarily centered around the Bible and other religious documentations, forgoing any developments in science and history that do not align with the church's teaching.

1876 | Dionisia becomes very aware that she's unlike most children her age. Odd things seem to happen when she gets overly-excited or angered, and after years of assuming it was a sign from God, she begins to fear the consequences of her oddities.

1877 | Did you witches are real? Now Dionisia does, and she's as scared as ever. Her father participates in two mobs—even leading one—that results in the death of an innocent man.

Summer, 1879 | Dionisia and her family receive a visit from an odd stranger bringing even stranger news: she's a witch. As one might assume, her father does not take the information well, threatening both the man and his daughter. After realizing the threats are very credible, the school representative snatches Dionisia and brings her to safety. She's put in a Hogsmeade orphanage, but she's not very happy about it.

Autumn, 1879 | Dionisia goes off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a magical school where they teach magical subjects. She can't really be skeptical after having spent a month in Hogsmeade, but still is awestruck at the new experiences. She's sorted into Hufflepuff—a good choice for the just and hardworking eleven-year-old—and proves to be a talented witch.

Summer, 1880 | Instead of returning to the orphanage, Dionisia goes to stay with Phoebe Beauregard and her family for the summer.

Autumn, 1880 | Dionisia returns to school with a full scholarship for her excellent grades and finally feels hope for her future.

Summer, 1881 | Dionisia returns to the Beauregards for the summer.

Autumn, 1881 | Dionisia decides to take Care of Magical Creatures and Divination, two classes that she can relate to the muggle world in some way or another.

Summer, 1882 | Dionisia is offered the chance to live with Zelda Fisk and her family for the summer. She finds the brood quite entertaining and is fascinated with the sibling relationships. Being one of two daughters in her biological family, she was never able to experience much of the fun that came with having almost a dozen children!

Summer, 1883 | Dionisia spends the summer with the Fisks once again. Rather than holding a part-time job during the summer, she chooses to instead focus on her studies. She reviews her old textbooks and homework that she's completed, hoping to keep her full scholarship after her OWLs.

1884 | Dionisia takes her OWL examinations in the spring and eagerly awaits her scores in the summer. When her scores arrive in the mail, she can't help but be disappointed: she didn't get her perfect—or even near perfect—scores, causing the loss of her scholarship. Completely crushed, she drops out of school. She goes to work on High Street and lives with friends with the hope that she'll soon be able to support herself.

Summer, 1885 | Dionisia signs up to begin mediwitch training.

Spring, 1886 | Dionisia becomes a full mediwitch at Hogsmeade Hospital.

1887 | After spending years brooding about economic and blood inequality, the election spurs a side of her she didn't know she had: a very political one. She takes a great interest in the protests that arise from the half-breed ban and supports the most liberal working-class candidate, Justus Pilliwickle. While he does lose, she gets the second best thing: the brother-in-law of Zelda.

☛ Dionisia was disowned by her witch-hating muggle parents at the age of eleven, and she stayed with various friends throughout her Hogwarts years.

☛ She is formerly of the middle class.

☛ She dropped out of Hogwarts in '84 and became a mediwitch.

☛ She has some pretty radical leftist beliefs and is into activism.

☛ She lives in a Pennyworth boarding house by herself.
☛ She stayed with the Fisks and Beauregards during the summers between school years.

☛ She supported Justus Pilliwickle's bid for Minister, but still supports Justin Ross now that he's been elected.
☛ She is bisexual (she's only slightly aware herself).

☛ She is very wary of society being founded on the Christian morals that basically thrust her into the working class and outcast magical people from society.

Plot Preferences:
☛ With open threads, I tend to have a "go with the flow" attitude. If you have suggestions for the thread's direction, I'll definitely listen; however, there's no grantee my characters will.

☛ With private (pre-planned) threads, I like to have a synopsis for whatever we hope to accomplish, but do understand if things don't go as planned!

☛ I can't pre-plot romantic chemistry, but can pre-plot things such as established relationships or even something as wild as spontaneous engagements been there, done that, willing to do it again ;)

☛ Please warn me before sending my characters into prolonged mourning or damaging their reputations, especially if they can temporarily impede ongoing plots!

☛ My big no-nos are pedophilia or (written out) sexual abuse/assault.

☛ I'm fine with strong language and violence. I have no issue with smut, but only when it's relevant to plot or character development.

☛ I don't mind if you control my characters in minimal ways (i.e. having them follow when it's the logical thing to do, grabbing their hands and tugging them, nodding if something factual is explained, etc.). The exception is with dialogue or actions that would take deliberate decision-making to figure out what they do.
