    History

    ✽ Holly Herminia Scrimgeour

    “Though she be but little, she is fierce."

    - ✽ -

    ✽ Early Life

    Holly's childhood was not all that unusual, save for the countless deaths she's witnessed. She was born to the wealthy Benedict Scrimegour and his wife — a wife Holly never got to know as her mother. Holly's mother passed away in 1876 when Holly was one year old following the birth of the twins Emilia and Camille.

    The mother figure Holly grew up with was not all one she she liked. Rosalie was a previously unmarried debutante when she married Holly's father, and she was not exactly the motherly type. She was bossy and somewhat dismissive of things Holly thought important, which led to long-lasting resentment. Holly's best friends growing up were the twin girls who were one year younger than herself (and set to attend Hogwarts the same time she was).

    Things didn't go as planned, however.

    When the laughing plague swept through Hogsmeade during the summer of 1884, Holly watched as four of her siblings — Emilia included — died of the illness. Camille took the loss of her twin much harder than Holly did, but there was no hiding the uneasiness Holly felt during the whole mourning period. Following the deaths, the family moved back to London where they currently reside.

    ✽ Hogwarts Years

    September 1887 | Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Holly was sorted into Slytherin without much question. Her first few days were spent lounging around the common room and brooding about her lack of entertainment. She wandered the castle corridors searching for things to do — at least until she came upon Miss Seneca Lestrange. The fourth year Slytherin was disinterested in the first year at first, but a few meetings revealed that they were a good match for friends. Seneca proved helpful while teaching Holly how to duel, while Holly helped Seneca with her Potions experiments. Holly was given detention near the beginning of the year for losing her temper after her wand-work proved inferior in Defence Against the Dark Arts class.
