    Relationships

    Martin Ruskin
    Acacia does love her father, but is concerned for his mental well-being. She does not approve of his actions recently, and is concerned of the consequences of his actions.
    Lisa Fairbairn
    Acacia hates her mother dearly, due to her leaving and the two oldest Ruskin sisters to have to grow up much too fast.
    Crystal Ruskin
    Acacia loves her sister, and is deeply protective of her. She doesn't, however, approve of her sister's attitude towards a lot of things. She does, however, agree with the reasoning behind the attitude, for the most part.
    Orinda Ruskin
    TBA
    Dunstan Ruskin
    Acacia has always been motherly to the young boy, but never bossed him around unless she absolutely needs to. Now that he has passed away, she is deeply sad. She had always thought him to be either a Hufflepuff, or a Gryffindor. She is sad that she never has the opportunity to find out.
    Madeleine Backus
    No matter if Maddie feels the same or not, Acacia sees Maddie as her best friend, and hopes dearly that Maddie feels the same. She does not know about Maddie's relationship towards Handsome, but would want Maddie happy, no matter who that is with.
    Darling Whitledge
    Acacia feels that Darling is a new friend in her life, and she is grateful for it. She does, however, worry that Darling's brother would ruin that relationship.
    Sweetie Whitledge
    Acacia doesn't really approve the relationship between the Slytherin and her sister. After all, she barely knows her and is worried that the sister has the same thoughts as the Gryffindor brother. This makes her worried about Crystal's well-being, given that Acacia thinks that Handsome may pose a threat of violence, and perhaps Sweetie, if Sweetie has similar views to the older brother.
    Handsome Whitledge
    Acacia is hesitant about the Gryffindor, and not very happy that the young man treated her like a monster, and then proceeded to insist that she can't speak in her own defence. She was quite offended, and still worries that he would turn to violence.
    Lewis de Dampierre
    Acacia has known him several (not clear how many) years. They have been good friends for a long time, and she has realized that she has fallen in love with him, and it seems that the feeling is mutual. They have much in common, via views on children and social views, along with their love for animals. (Kelly ships them.)

    Acacia made papers that she posted around Hogsmeade against Half-Breed prejudice, and a letter to the DP editor on the topic. Your character may have opinions on this.
