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

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.

A metamorphamagus, Robin's appearance changes often depending on their whims. His default male appearance is of average height at five feet, seven inches. His frame can best be described as thin and wispy with delicate features. He keeps his brown hair short and tidy. Robins default female appearance is tall for a woman at five feet, seven inches. She is delicate and slender with small curves. Robins eyes are a striking grey-green and are often what people first notice about them. Their attire can best be described as stylish but functional. Robin is right handed.

Bitter, versatile, rebellious, flirtatious, secretive
- Please classify as Non-Binary on the Census. Due to Robin's metamorphmagus abilities and relative ease of shifting across the gender spectrum, in today's world, he would most likely identify as either Genderqueer or Gender Fluid.
- Robin is primarily presented to the world as male with his abilities being kept secret. People are made to assume that Robin's 'female' appearance is his 'shy, sickly twin sister'. It's a bit of a mess. And tends to lead to trouble more often than not. - Is pansexual and a virgin - though the latter is definitely not by choice.
1863 - Robin is born and is pronounced to be male. There is then confusion when the newborn later 'changes' gender. Not quite sure what to do at first, the parents eventually pay off the midwife to collaborate their story - they would say that they had twins - a boy and a girl, to cover their future bases - and register both births. In need of a heir, they are quick to decide that they will primarily present the baby as being male. Something that is much easier to do with a small baby that can't really voice their opinion about anything.

1868 - Robin shows his first signs of magic by turning his pink comforters blue much to his mothers chagrin.

1875 - Robin's letter for Hogwarts comes. It is decided that Robin will not attend, the public story being that Robin is much too sickly to possibly spend months away from home and among other children.

1877 - The family opts to not move to Hogsmeade as so many of their friends are doing.

1879 - A teenager, Robin is a lot more conscious about themself and the fact that they do not think along the lines of Victorian Era norms when it comes to their gender. Robin experiences a lot of personal questioning and confusion. With no one to really talk to about it, Robin begins acting out in a more rebellious manner. It doesn't help that along with gender confusion comes sexual orientation confusion. Who is he attracted to? Men? Women? Robin soon discovers that he is rather attracted to both no matter which 'gender' he is currently identifying with. Not that there is much he can do about that aside from flirt with servants.

1882 - The year that he would have graduated from Hogwarts had he been allowed to go. Moderately bitter, Robin decides to attend the Coming Out Ball and sneaks out of his home to do so. The night of revelry is amazing and sneaking out to attend societal events just becomes a thing he does.

1884 - Destruction seems to come to Hogsmeade which the Ashdown family are quite safe from thanks to their continued refusal to move to the magical village.

1887 - Robin is among those trapped in the Wizarding World Market when the pavilion collapses but gets out of it with nothing more than a few scrapes and scratches.

1888 - Close to what most people would consider to be a decent marrying age, Robin is much more vocal with his parents about wanting more freedom.

- Robin has a "twin" sister that looks remarkably similar to them.
- Robin is a metamorphmagus that switches genders periodically and is actually his own twin sister.

December 20th, 1888 — The Destiny Christmas Ball
Jack Watson
Robin was mostly at the Destiny Christmas Ball out of spite. When the invitation had come, his parents had started in on how they should absolutely not be attending. Which, meant, of course, that Robin was absolutely attending. Robin had been having a time deciding whether to attend as Robin or his female self. He had taken a while choosing between the suit and a lovely gown he had gotten earlier in the month. Which to go with? Life was hard, sometimes.

In the end Robin had decided to go as a woman. Longer hair, softer features and all the other stuff that came with it. She was almost instantly regretting her choice as she stepped into the ball. Corsets sucked, okay? But the gown was really pretty, at least. Robin eyed the 'pond' dubiously - how did anyone dance in ice skates and not look ridiculous?

Robin currently appears as a woman and will be using she/her pronouns.
