"I'll bleed wherever I damn well please!" She shouted, scowling at him. As if to prove it, she uncovered her nose and shook her head back and forth like a dog attempting to dry its fur of water. Little droplets of blood rained on the sidewalk all willy-nilly. Billie Farrow in A Good Dusting

Imogen Fox
PROFILE

Full Name: Imogen Fox

Nickname(s):

Birthdate: May 1st, 1873

Age: 17

Occupation: Housemaid

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Servants' Quarters of the Devine household, Wellingtonshire, Hogsmeade

Hogwarts House:

Wand:
Dogwood, ten inches precisely, with a veela hair core. Swishy. This is a third- or fourth-hand wand, so it's not good for a whole lot, really, but she's skilled in what it will let her do.


Family:
A mother and father and a younger brother. Perfectly ordinary.

Of course Imogen had a family at one point, but her mother died when she was a toddler and her drunkard father forgot her outside a pub one evening. The Foxes, though, are the family that chose her—for all that she cannot proclaim her ties to them particularly loudly.
APPEARANCE
At a flat five feet with mousy brown hair and dark eyes, Imogen Fox has always blended easily into the background. Right-handed, she dresses neatly and practically, and is a deft hand at repairing tears and scuffs in clothing and leather, though is awful at finer needlework.

HISTORY
Little White Lies

Imogen Fox was born in a small village in the north of England to her parents, their first child. The only noteworthy event of her upbringing was the birth of her brother—due to financing woes, she was unable to attend Hogwarts.

Fortunately for Imogen, the family's circumstances changed over time, allowing her to begin studying at the Blishwick School of Domestic Magic in 1886. She was not overly keen to leave home—her first time ever doing so!—but knew it to be a necessary evil in order to make something more of her life than marrying the butcher's boy and popping out half a dozen fat children. Her off days during the training program were spent as a laundress in Pennyworth—not exactly a position befitting of her education, but with no references and no connections, it would have to do. Besides, Imogen found the work suited her, as it kept her busy without forcing her to be oversocial.

At last, in 1888, with a certificate of qualification in hand, Imogen has ventured out into the world at large, ready to find employment and happiness on the road ahead (probably in that order).


The Real Deal

1873 | She is born Rosie-Mae Dawes in a small Yorkshire village, the daughter of a drunken muggle and his witch of a wife.

1876 | Her mother dies delivering a brother, Amos. Shortly after, the remaining trio move to London, where their Da is able to find better work.

1881 | With little better to do with them—and unconvinced they won't eat all the food if left on their own—Da places the children on a bench whilst he goes into his favourite watering hole. Sick of waiting, Rosie-Mae takes off, ignoring her brother's protests that they must be good and wait. She finds her way to Knockturn Alley, though to this day, cannot trace the precise route. She swiftly regrets this plan but, after the better part of a month lurking around Fox & Son, is taken in by its owner and given a her new name: Imogen Fox.

1881 - 1887 | Imogen settles into her new life, helping around the shop, learning to pick pockets, and dreaming of the days when she can conduct her own grand heists. Shortly before her fourteenth birthday, her "father" offers her an avenue to do just that: training as a housemaid in the hopes that she will find her way into a reputable and popular house.

1889 | Imogen leaves Blishwick's and, in a matter of weeks, secures work in the household of Ophelia Devine. She writes Father to tell him the good news.

GOT A NEW THREAD FOR ME?

  • I am almost always down for throwing characters together if you have some sort of 'hook' for me because...
  • I don't care for "meet & greet" threads and if I find myself in one, am prone to causing explosions.
  • For planned (non-open) threads, I prefer to have a vague idea of setting and potential goals, but the the understanding that those goals may not come to pass—characters can be dicks that way ;)
  • I do not pre-plan romance. Even if my character is happily married, there should always be the understanding that this can change!
  • I prefer fade-to-black for sexual situations. I don't have anything against smut per se, but I would rather write no smut than bad smut!
  • I am a teacher who also volunteers with young children. Student-professor relationships are firm no-go areas for me.
  • My posts typically range in length from 100 to 300 words. They will sometimes be longer and sometimes shorter, depending on what the thread demands.
  • Please give me a heads up if you intend on anything that can damage my character's reputation or send them into mourning!

    As per usual, I have given myself an interesting thread premise by RUINING LIVES. A plague of rats struck Diagon Alley yesterday (May 21st) and brought with it a plague of problems. If your character was present (either "off screen", in my thread, or in one of your own), they may:
    • Have been vaguely traumatized but that's about it
    • Have injured themselves trying to apparate out
    • Have been injured in the panic
    • Have been bitten by a rat: over the next several days, they will begin to get a bit "ratty"—senses altering, intense desire to gnaw on things, increased hair growth. This will culminate in them turning into a rat on May 31st. This can be fixed at the hospital whenever you like if rat-you consumes a transfiguration reversal tonic which I've just decided exists. Though your character will be conscious of what's happening and have reasonable control over their movements, they still will suffer from ~rat urges~, whatever they may be.
    Have fun? I guess? Wink
