    History

    ✽ Annabelle Cecilia Scrimgeour

    “A mess of beautiful contradictions made her whole. She wears fire for skin, but a storm lives in her soul."

    - ✽ -

    ✽ Early Life

    Born into a wealthy pureblood family, Annabelle's life was turned upside down when she was kidnapped by muggle thugs off the streets of London as a two-month-old baby. The kidnappers hoped to demand ransom after seeing her "Missing" story in the newspaper, only to be dumbfounded when it never appeared. Unsure of what to do with the infant, they kept her in a small village far north of London.

    It was not too long before strange incidents began occuring. Terrified after watching objects fly around the room in the infant's presence, the thugs abandoned her in the village park. She was discovered less than an hour later by a working class muggle couple called the Drapers. They searched for her parents, but ended up adopting her as their own when they were unable to find her natal family.

    Annabelle grew up poor, yet undoubtedly loved. She was given a younger sister as a toddler and both girls were doted on by their parents. A clever girl, Annabelle figured out the extent of her abilities from a young age and always sought out answers. After spotting a boy performing what she could only describe as magic in an alleyway, she threatened him and demanded to know what he was doing. Only after inadvertently proving her own magical abilities did he reveal information about the wizarding world — however, there was one conidition: she not tell anyone, even the Draper family.

    ✽ Hogwarts Years

    Annabelle's first day at Hogwarts was unlike that of any other student's. Upon attending the sorting ceremony, she came face-to-face with another first year who looked exactly like her, albeit a little less unkempt. While Annabelle was shocked because of their similarities, the other girl named Araminta was shocked for other reasons. It was revealed to her that Araminta had lost a twin to kidnapping as an infant. After it was determined that Annabelle was in fact the long-lost twin of Araminta, gossip ensued. She was whisked away for the weekend to spend time with her natal family and was thrust into the live of an upper class girl. Though she was enchanted by the luxuries offered to her, she resented her birth parents for refusing to let her keep contact with the family who'd raised and cared for her.

    Despite the drama that went on during her younger years, Annabelle enjoyed her time at Hogwarts. Though not an incredibly studious girl, Annabelle did understand the value of positive marks and always worked diligently to remain on top of her work. Her favorite classes by far were Herbology and Potions, and she kept stacks of books on the subjects. She added Divination, Earth Magic, and Arithmacy to her course load in her third year, and always enjoyed Divination. She fancied the idea of becoming a healer or an alchemist, so upon receiving her OWL scores, she dropped her beloved Divination in favor of Alchemy. She did regret that choice in the end, as Alchemy proved far too difficult for the young witch to comprehend. From then on she had her mind set on becoming a healer. Her parents, however, dismissed the idea and insisted that she would be a debutante.

    ✽ Post-Hogwarts

    Following graduation, Annabelle did debut alongside her twin sister at the Coming Out Ball. Though she enjoyed the festivities for a few moments, she soon became a nervous wreck with the socialization and formalities involved with a real ball and retired early for the night. From that moment on, Annabelle decided that she would do anything in her power to avoid people while at parties and balls.

    In July of 1887, there was a disaster at the Wizarding World Market that Annabelle fell victim to. While attempting to get herself and those around her out of harms way, she managed to get crushed by falling debris. She woke up in the hospital and was informed that she was a twisted wrist, broken leg, various cuts and bruises, as well as internal bleeding. She did recover and was released at the week's end.

    After enduring months of abuse during the summer, Annabelle finally worked up the courage to leave home in September of 1887. Her parents made an effort to find her, yet she refused to come home when they did. She was disowned — not that she expected to ever get through life without being disowned for one reason or another — and moved in with her friend Clara in Southampton. She took up a career as the St. Mungo's tearoom lady while she waits for the next internship season.
