Full Name: Minerva Louise Nightly

Nickname(s):

Birthdate: October 7th, 1872

Age: 16

Occupation: Student

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: St Mungo’s Home for Inconvenient Children, South Bartonburg, Hogsmeade

Hogwarts House: Gryffindor, which she thinks is absolutely ludicrous

Wand: Oak, twelve inches, unicorn hair. Swishy.

Family:
Ambrose Nightly, Father [1839-1880]
Helena Nightly née Tupper, Mother [1850-1880]
Theodore Nightly, Brother [1875]
Benevolence “Lenny” Nightly, Sister [1877]

Solomon Nightly IV, Uncle [1835-1873], a confirmed bachelor
APPEARANCE
If one ignores her ridiculous height (she stands at five feet, seven and a half inches in her stockings), Minerva Nightly is exceptionally plain. A round young lady with brown eyes and ginger locks, her delicate nose—inherited from her mother, for her father was practically an elephant—is widely regarded to be her best feature. She dresses simply so as not to draw undue attention to herself, and because her grandparents only splash out a grander clothing allowance when absolutely necessary so as not to look bad. She is right-handed.

PERSONALITY
SHY — PASSIVE — BRIGHT — MOTHERLY — INSECURE — CREATIVE
OTHER
— Minerva passes her time by writing awful (PG) romance novels. She would essentially drop dead of embarrassment if anyone ever found them.
— Her favourite color is pink, but Aunt Lydia won’t let her wear it with her complexion.
— Proficient in French.
— Allergic to cats. Hogwarts can be a struggle.
HISTORY
A Daughter

As the first child born to her parents, Minerva Louise’s arrival was lauded—a testament to her parents love. Her father, who seldom saw his purist family on account of marrying a muggleborn, was particularly ecstatic to see the family grow. Her earliest years were rather unexciting, marked by the arrival of two new siblings as the years wore on.

At six, Minerva’s first act of magic was nearly overlooked, so subtle was it. When her brother was crying, she moved to comfort him, and the red roses in the vase behind them turned pink, her favourite color. Quiet but nice, just like Minerva, and wholly unsurprising to those who knew her.

Things took a turn in 1880. A freak floo accident killed both her parents, leaving Minerva, Theodore, and Lenny in the care of their only living magical relatives, their grandparents, who had always tolerated them at best.

An Inconvenience

The fact that they were orphans did not exactly warm her grandparents’ hearts. While they took in Theodore to raise as they saw fit—with both sons now dead, he was the last hope for the family name, after all—the girls were sent to St Mungo’s Home for Inconvenient Children in Hogsmeade, in the hopes that they might live a comfortable and well-educated life far away from Solomon and Iphigenia.

With their parents dead and now their brother elsewhere, the girls took it in two decidedly different fashions: Lenny began acting as wildly as she could manage to get away with, whilst Minerva became even more reserved. She found herself most comfortable shadowing one or two of the other girls, or even Aunt Lydia: doing so allowed her to be sociable without being social, and she was content enough in the background.

The time eventually came for Minerva to depart for Hogwarts where, quite laughably, she found herself sorted into Gryffindor. Having expected Hufflepuff or even Ravenclaw, the now first year felt rather like a dear in headlights as she joined her new, boisterous home, where she made a couple of good friends but mostly continued to keep to herself. Third year saw the addition of Divination and Ancient Runes to her timetable and the return of Theodore to her daily life—though her brother was sorted into [house], the siblings relished the return to one another’s companionship.

Now in her fifth year, Minerva has given surprisingly little thought to her impending O.W.L. examinations, instead fretting over the well-being of her siblings.

<div class="thead" style="margin-bottom: 10px;">St Mungo’s Home for Inconvenient Children</div>
<p>Nestled on the corner of Up Street and Brumble Lane in South Bartnburg is the <b>St Mungo’s Home for Inconvenient Children</b>, at once both an orphanage and a boarding school for those aged three to eighteen. The original house was built in Edinburg in 1702, but with the expansion of Hogsmeade, the Home’s patrons decided it would be best to move the children away from muggle eyes. Watching over her charges is <b>Aunt Lydia</b>, a devotee of the Church of Magical Jesus and, as far as anyone is aware, not <i>actually</i> an aunt to any children living. Children come to the home in one of two ways:
<dd>&mdash; Most commonly, <i>middle class</i> youths are sent by whatever relations they’re left to after the death of one or more parents. Their families pay for this privilege, naturally. Occasionally, children with both parents living will be sent there as well, either because they’re actually obnoxious or because their parents consider them to be.

&mdash; Less often, <i>working class</i> orphans are taken in, their care paid for by the Home’s patrons.</dd>
All children are schooled in reading, writing, and arithmetic in the mornings; afternoons are spent learning valuable household work for the “sponsored” (poor) children and appropriate topics such as music, art, French, and history for their more affluent counterparts. All the children dine together to instill good manners and a sense of charity. Sundays after breakfast, the children are engaged in Bible study until lunch, bar the one Sunday each month when church is held in Hogsmeade.

The house is laid out in wings: in the entryway, one will turn either left or right, or go up the stairs in the same directions. Dead ahead is the stairs down to the kitchen, laundry, and storerooms. If one turns <b>left</b> on the ground floor, they will find two classrooms (one for boys, one for girls), a parlour, a small library, and a formal sitting room. To the <b>right</b> on the same floor lie the dining room, another parlour, and Aunt Lydia’s quarters. <b>Up the first flight of stairs</b> lie the girls’ rooms (to the left) and the boys’ rooms (to the right), which sleep two to a bedchamber. Two rooms are also available for important guests, though the Home seldom has any. Finally, the <b>third floor</b> boasts the rooms of the household staff, and a dormitory for sponsored children of each sex.

Like most children, those at the Home leave for Hogwarts when the time is right. Sponsored children have their first <b>three years</b> covered by the Home. Afterwards, they may stay through their OWLs only if a full scholarship is obtained. Those who do not get a scholarship will be matched with appropriate work, often in the household of one of the Home’s patrons.
