First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Violet Wiltingham
“I do hope I’m interrupting something.”
PROFILE

Full Name: Violet Elizabeth Wiltingham

Nickname(s): Vi

Birthdate: December 1st, 1792

Age: 95

Occupation: Transfiguration Professor

Blood Status: Pureblood

Residence: A house in both Ballymena, Ireland, and Hogsmeade.

Hogwarts House: Slytherin

Wand: Fir, Phoenix Feather core, 13", stern.

Family:
  • Harold Wiltingham (father), b. 1701, d. 1808.
  • Marigold Wiltingham née Craw (mother), b. 1704, d. 1820.

APPEARANCE
Professor Wiltingham isn't much a woman, but rather, an aged vulture. She carries herself in a proud demeanour, her chin almost always lifted into the air, no matter the strength nor coldness of the wind. As a girl, her hair was a deep red, but in her age, it's changed into a chilly grey, reflecting her rather piercing and inspective eye.

Standing at roughly 5'9", Violet is often swathed in robes of mauve, almost always topped with a shawl or scarf. While some might assume her cane is a requirement of old age, she actually is tasked with it due to an unfortunate quidditch match from her youth. Stored inside her cane is her wand, which she uses with her right-hand, while she writes with her left.

Being that she is an Irish wolfhound animagus, when she was younger she looked a bit odd; an auburn-haired Irish wolfhound, after all, is quite rare. Though, now that she is older, her fur matches her age, and breed.


PERSONALITY
Raised by a pair of rather snobbish parents, Violet was a bookish girl who only found herself being social when in the presence of a librarian or professor. She has always preferred the company of a book or quill. Often times she herself is seen as a bit of a prude or unnaturally detached, but in truth she has a bit more to her than that.

Despite her strong and rather elitist exterior, Violet is a rather sweet women who is, in short, a childless mother. After spending a great deal of her life as a proud and almost misandristic woman, she regretted her decision not to marry and have a child, or in the least, adopt. But, in a way, she did manage to satisfy that crave for a child's affection, by living a life with various cats and one very, very old bulldog named Cuthbert.

  • 1821, her text receives three educational awards and is put upon several required reading lists from various institutions, Hogwarts School included.
  • 1830, Violet has by this time retired from her job in the ministry and now uses grants and cheques from the Department of Magical Education to fuel her research.

  • 1879, Violet discovers the past-time of writing and reading frilly romances. She publishes her first fiction novel Bartemus' Quarrel: A Wizard's Passion. Embarrassed by her racy pen-work, Violet uses the pen-name of M.E. Quille.

YOU LIKELY KNOW...
  • You likely know that Professor Wiltingham is both a celebrated author and transfigurationist, and despite her sex, is widely revered amongst her peers. For much of the beginning of her career, she was only known as H.V. Wiltingham, though by 1860 most knew of her true name and gender.
  • You likely know that Professor Wiltingham is definitely a force to be reckoned with and that she is a stern educator, and easily flustered.
YOU MIGHT KNOW...
  • You might know that Professor Wiltingham is very biased when it comes to her students; she favours Slytherins over most.
  • You might know that Professor Wiltingham can easily be won over by ego-stroking, gifts (more specifically Bernie Bott's jellybeans) and asking her about her latest book.
YOU DON'T KNOW...
  • You probably don't know that, despite her cold and condescending demeanour, she is very much a maternal woman and fond of children.
  • You absolutely don't know that Violet, who is a renowned prude and hates any sort of sexual innuendo, writes romance novels with very socially unacceptable themes, including cross-species breeding.
