Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Iola Hitchens for Elladora Black. The Blacks' black sheep.
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Billie Farrow

Full Name: Wilhelmina "Billie" Farrow

Nickname(s): Billie, but it's the only name she'll go by

Birthdate: June 28, 1879

Age: 9

Occupation: Shop Hand & Adventurer

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Hogsmeade. She sleeps here and there (particularly the slums) and flits about the town.

Hogwarts House: Unknown

Wand: Unknown


Anna Farrow (1856) - Religious Muggle Mother

Joe Farrow (1876) - Muggle Older Brother

Gideon Ollivander (1854) - Secretly Her Father


Billie is fairly short and stands about 3 feet and 11 inches. She's fairly scrawny and gangly. Her hair is chopped short into a messy mop of light brown with streaks of blonde. She has a very boyish and androgynous appearance. Ever since her mother threw her out, she has been dressing and generally passing herself off as male. She is very guarded about anyone finding out. Her brother, Joe, knows, but he hasn't told anyone, allowing her to hide from their mother and start over. Her clothing is worn and consists of various hand-me-downs slapped together. At the moment, they are baggy, and she's forced to roll her sleeves and pant legs up. She is fairly dusty as most children are.
Billie's schooling is patchy at best, but she possesses her own sort of street intelligence, and she is very creative. Some folks would call her odd at the way she prefers the presence of animals over people, but they seem like the safer option. She isn't fond of people touching her, nor does she toss around her trust easily, but she is a very loyal friend once you get to know her. She distrusts and is afraid of women the most. Despite the cruelty of her family, she is a very kind child, even if she tends to make mistakes that might make people think otherwise. Ever since she started posing as a boy, she's felt more free and comfortable with herself. However, even she realizes that it cannot last, so she is simply enjoying life. She likes to be helpful. She loves baked goods. Her favorite color is green, and she's good at climbing.
She's befriended a part-kneazle that is either a stray or someone's wandering pet. Either way, she's named it Pounce and tries to be sure she has some sort of food for it.

She has a little, black kitten named Soot!

Anna Farrow spent much of her young life in a village not far from Hogsmeade. There, she met Thomas Farrow, the son of a smithy whom she very quickly fell in love with. With him, she had her first child, Joe. The three lived happily until Joe was around 2, and Thomas was killed, hit by a carriage in the streets.

Thrown into grief, Anna changed, resorting to drinking and gambling. It was during that time that she was charmed by the wizard who ended up getting her pregnant with Billie. Much of Billie's early years consisted of them moving from place to place while Anna struggled to hold down a job.

Around when Billie was 5, Anna finally landed a steady job as a house maid. It was then that the young girl started to show her first bouts of accidental magic. At first, her mother brushed it off as going batty, but soon it became apparent that her daughter was the root cause.

Anna thought perhaps she could beat it out of her child, but, when that didn't garner any results, she sought help from the church. However, after a certain, disastrous episode of accidental magic that ended with Anna getting into trouble with her employer, Billie was cast out.

Eight-years-old and alone, the girl cut off all her hair and acquired boys clothing so she could assume another life and find employment easier.

Although an honest sort of child, she constantly ended up with the wrong crowd of friends and became a rat catcher. She is quite good at her profession, but it pains her to have to kill the poor animals. Once, she made the rats in someone's kitchen just disappear. Unknown to her, they, later, were found in the house next door.

Not long ago, she wandered on foot from their village to Hogsmeade where she found herself among other individuals who were also different. Now, she scampers about town, making friends, clearing people's households of rats, and trying to start a new life for herself.

-Billie is always enthusiastically looking for work. She runs errands, does odd jobs, gets rid of pests, etc.

-She's usually fairly dirty and rough and tumble in her play and work.

-More often than not, she's seen running instead of walking.

-She doesn't have parents/guardians actively in her life, and she lives on her own.

-She's very new to the magical world. It becomes quite apparent when new things catch her by surprise, and she goes slack jawed.

-She doesn't particularly like to be touched.

-Billie is not a boy like she pretends to be. Nor does she admit she prefers being perceived as male.

Billie is SO EXCITED for a happy Christmas that she went out of her way to try and spread an absurd amount of holiday cheer. (In her own way.) And gift people with random things she traded for, found, or made.

Gideon Ollivander received a terrible drawing of him, her, and the two cats with the words "Mere Crismus Gidein" scrawled at the top. She struggled with what else to get him, not sure she could ever repay him for letting her stay with him. She ended up deciding on saving up money from rat catching and other odd jobs to purchase him what the person at the stall told her was a great knife. It looked pretty, anyways. It had a dragon on the handle. She thought he could use it in his wand making. (Billie also probably begged Quin to help her make him cookies or somesuch.)

Quincey Honeyduke Billie stole borrowed Quin's hammer and constructed a lopsided wooden box with a questionable rope handle. A nice artist she knew let her sweep and do a few chores for him in exchange for his help in painting on "Sweets Supplies" on the side. Which was for the best, for it would have said 'Swet Splis' if she had done it. Inside the box is also Quin's hammer.

The Sisters Potts! Billie traded a kid she knew two bread rolls for a small, chipped up pot. With a rock, she scratched into the side of it "Potts Pot." Someone helped her spell them. Inside the pot, she planted a somewhat dead flower she'd pulled from somewhere.

Benevolence Montague saved her from an evil plant. So, she was gifted with what some kid told her was a medal, but was actually just a bookmark.

Ginger, the Niffler, was sent the shiniest button she could find on the street. Actually, Billie went a bit overboard and sent a collection of them. Eugene Scamander was almost forgotten in her excitement about Ginger, but then Billie remembered and sent him a mismatched, in both color and size, pair of gloves. To protect his hands in case something tries to bite him. One of them is definitely a women's glove.

The cats, Adonis and Soot, got a bed Billie made out of a fraying sack and random squishy things shoved into it.

Jimmy Fletcher got a punch to the face.

Most of the gifts are accompanied by phonetically spelled (and sometimes gibberish) notes.
