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.

Ellory is a small woman - she's five feet one and slender. She's fair skinned with a healthy blush to her cheeks thanks to her easy lifestyle. She has big and round blue eyes and a cute nose. Overall, Ellory is not so much beautiful as she is sweet and homely-looking. She has small hands. She was lucky or unlucky, however you view it, to get the red hair some Pendergasts had over the years. Ellory personally likes her hair, but she was always on a quest of individuality, as it can be seen in her personal style. She doesn't wear anything scandalous to go against the crowd, but she's not very fashionable either. She doesn't pick colours because they look good on her, rather because she likes them. Orange, for example. They keep telling her it doesn't look good on her but Ellory doesn't care too much because it's her favourite colour. She also enjoys robes, even though they're not considered very fashionable. She'll have a great time in the 1910s fashion-wise to be sure! She's left handed and she lost a pinky finger in an accident. She speaks in a posh English accent.

Ellory is a cheerful, fun-loving and energetic girl. She has an easy time making friends. The truth is, she can't stand being on her own for long periods of time. She's energized by human interaction. She's also really talkative and she can't stand not being able to talk to people.

She gives off the impression of a confident person due to her boisterous personality. The truth is, Ellory is a deeply insecure person. She craves people's love, appreciation, and approval. That's why she doesn't have much of a backbone when it comes to men.

Ellory means well and she can be somewhat naive at times. She can come off as immature and petty at times, but she's rarely truly mean to others.

She craves adventure, but she's not truly brave enough to pursue it. She thinks herself as much tougher than she actually is. She has the Gryffindor nerve, though, that's for sure. She's also impulsive and quick to anger.


❧ Ellory's hobbies include tennis, photography, and astronomy related stuff. She's a member of some amateur astronomers society.

❧ Ellory owns a camera (of the magical sort) as of late 1887. One of her 'projects' was to take portraits of her friends and relatives.

❧ Her boggart takes the form of an inferius.

❧ Her amortentia smells like vanilla, patisserie cream and cocoa.

❧ She's fluent in french.

❧ Ellory is a really good dancer.

❧ After her experience with the Cruciatus Curse, Ellory's pain tolerance levels have become extremely low. She's become afraid of the very notion of feeling pain.

Childhood (1867-1877)
Ellory is born to Philip and Olivia. Even though she was the youngest child, she didn't receive any special treatment from her parents. She was appropriately immature, though. Her closest confidante through childhood is her sister Rosalind, partly because they're the 'Small Pair' and naturally made to spend most of their time together. Her other good childhood friend is her cousin, Cassius Lestrange.

Ellory is a lively child, but not overall difficult. She's not her governess' favourite, though, seeing that they had different visions as to what young Ellory was to do. Ellory preferred to play outside than learn how to be a good lady. Even though she liked to read and learn, she found etiquette books and whatever novels girls of her age and standing ought to read very, very boring!

She began to display magic since she was two. At least she was good at being a magical child!

Hogwarts (1878-1885)
Ellory is sorted into Gryffindor, like her brother Regan had years ago. It's an unusual house for her family, but since Regan and William had been sorted into Houses other than Slytherin in the past, nobody thinks much of it. (It now remains to be seen where young Regina will be sorted!)

She's neither a good nor a bad student. She does well in the subjects she enjoys and poorly in those she doesn't. Ellory is a curious nature, but she has no sense of duty so she can't focus on thinks she doesn't enjoy. As such, her performance is polarizing - she does exceptionally well in Transfiguration and Astronomy, but does abysmally in Potions and Herbology. For a person who loves nature, she really couldn't stand the latter!

For electives, she picks Care of Magical Creatures, Divination and Ghoul Studies, both of which are considered 'fluffy'. She's also an active member of the Transfiguration, Leisure Sports and Astronomy clubs.

Ellory is a very popular girl. She's got family relations and a personality that makes it easy to make friends. She tried to be friendly to the lower classes, partly because of how Romantic she found it. That being said, her closest friends are very much like her - girls from 'good' families.

In her fourth year, Ellory loses the pinky finger of her right hand while she was practicing the Severing Charm with some girls of her year. The whole thing is branded an accident - yet Ellory is convinced the one responsible, Antigone Lestrange, did it on purpose. The two hadn't been on good terms since their first year. Since that accident, Ellory began to think of her as a nemesis.

It is because of her popularity, her good family ties and the fact that she is not an abyssmal student (in most classes), that she is picked as prefect in her fifth year. She had also saved a classmate from falling over the Astronomy tower the year before. The addition of the badge to her school uniforms is not unwelcome - Ellory secretly hopes that her new duties will make her mother appreciate her more. Her services to the school conclude with her appointment as the Head Girl.

In the meantime, while Ellory was getting her education, some of her older siblings got married; Eloise in 1881 and Evelyn in 1883. Ellory's own experience with the opposite sex includes her first kiss to her childhood friend Andren Lovegood in their third year and her crush to her cousin Edward Macmillan during the summer break between her fifth and sixth year. Their mothers figured it out and, while Auntie Helena thought it to be adorable more than anything, Olivia wasn't too pleased and she warned her not to be foolish about someone she can't marry.

She loses her father and youngest brother in the plague of 1884. That is the case with her father, at least. Warrick is in fact murdered by her mother. He never stood a chance, the poor thing - his birth nearly cost his mother her life and he was crippled, besides. Ellory is shocked to catch her mother taking his life and with the Curse no less. She feared her mother before, in a respectful sort of way - now she knows her capable of being dangerous. She doesn't tell anyone of this - nobody would believe that the esteemed Olivia Pendergast was capable of murder and she didn't want the same fate as Warrick.

After Hogwarts; The Debutante Years (1885-Present)
Ellory went straight to her mother's newly established finishing school with the conclusion of her Hogwarts education. She would really rather not - she's thinks she's received enough Proper Lady education over the years and she served as a prefect, besides. What else was there left for her to learn? Ellory struggles to take the finishing school classes seriously, which pains her mother - the daughter of the headmistress and an old prefect ought to know better!

In the January of 1886 Ellory has her second experience with the Unforgivable Curses. A quarrel between her and Antigone at a tea party of a mutual friend concludes with a duel between them, initiated by Ellory. Olivia makes Antigone cast the Cruciatus Curse on her, in a private "tea party" between the three of them, to teach Ellory a lesson. She also makes her wear mourning clothes for weeks, so she can "mourn her lost reputation". It is a difficult period for Ellory.

Later in the year, her favourite sister Rosalind manages to screw up in a greater capacity. She leaves her fiance at the altar and their mother sends her to their oldest sister in America. Ellory wonders if Rosalind also received a dose of the Crucatius Curse to fix her up.

For a bit it seemed that she wouldn't debute that summer, but sweet Evelyn comes to her rescue. She offers their mother to take care of Ellory's first season and thus she debuts on her nineteenth birthday's party.

In the spring of 1887 Ellory is accidentally transported to Mexico, after touching a portkey intended for another. That person is Reuben Crouch, the prodigal son of the pureblood family. He shows up to her rescue right as she's about to be killed by an inferi in an ancient temple. (Reuben is a curse-breaker.) They instantly bond and they keep contact upon their return to Great Britain.

Their relationship has their ups and downs and its lowest point is when Reuben is shipped off to Canada after a big misunderstanding where their families believe he wanted to take advantage of Ellory. Their relationship rekindled towards the end of 1887. However, it would be more difficult than ever for the two to keep contact.

In her attempt to get over Ben Crouch, Ellory decides to become an animagus. She has a promising beginning as she actually puts in the effort to find the needed bibliography about it. She even contacts the Department of Magical Education to get permition for the books in the restricted section of the library. However, she's disheartened when she realizes that becoming an animagus isn't all fun and games. She and Ben make up, also, so she doesn't have heartbreak to fuel her motivation.

One Get-Over-Ben hobby she doesn't give up is photography, though. She purchased a camera on a whim that she actually continues to use.


❧ Ellory's mother was the renowned socialite Olivia Pendergast nee Lestrange. She was also the founder of Pendergast School for Young Roses.

❧ Ellory's sister, Evelyn Abercrombie, is the current headmistress of the above school.

❧ She's the niece of the Chief Warlock, Lucius Lestrange.


❧ If you went to Hogwarts around the same time as her (1878-1885), you'd know that she served as a prefect for Gryffindor, as well as the Head Girl in her final year.

❧ Her best friend is her cousin, Cassius Lestrange.

❧ She's not on good terms with Antigone Lestrange, wife to her cousin Tiberius.


❧ Ellory received the Cruciatus Curse from Antigone on the command of her late mother. Antigone is the only living person who knows of this.

❧ Ellory witnessed her mother murder her baby brother, Warrick Pendergast. She's not told anyone of this.

❧ She's keeping contact with Reuben Crouch again. Only her, him, Art Pettigrew and Cash Lestrange know of this.

I didn't expect for you to change your mind and come asking for me hand, but I didn't think that you'd be <u>that</u> quick to replace me. Is your thirst for female fresh so desperately strong that you grasped upon Miss Scrimgeour right after we parted ways? Or maybe you came to me for a kiss while your whore was out to get you drinks? Are you always after girls from pureblooded families? Will you accidentally take Miss Scrimgeour to Mexico too, perhaps? I hope you do and you're both killed by inferi.
