    Birthdate: February 28, 1866
    Current Age: 20 Years
    Occupation: Wife&Mother
    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff
    Wand: Ash, 10 1/2", bendy, Unicorn Tail
    Blood Status: Half - veela; passed off as pureblood
    Social Class: Middle
    Family: Caradog Weasley, 1853, - husband
    — Arthur Weasley, 1886, Son

    Catherine stands at a full five foot five and weighs about 120 pounds. She has a slender, willowy build and pale, delicate features. Her eyes are bright blue and she has long, blonde hair. The girl has a light sprinkling of freckles and has a completely innocent look. Cat dresses as suited to her social class as well as modestly. No lowercut frocks for this lass. Given that she is right handed, Cats wand hand is her right hand though she is capable of using her left hand as well.
    • 1864 - Catherines father falls for a Veela and marries her. Whether it was a love match or something of convenience for the veela is unknown.
    • February 28, 1866 - Catherine is born to her parents and is slightly sickly. Due to her mothers selfish nature, Catherines father does most of the caring and manages to find help caring for her.
    • 1871 - Catherines first signs of magic occurs as she accidentally turns a dress of hers a different color. On the same note, Catherine accidentally causes all the curtains in her home to turn green during a fearsome temper tantrum over being made to wear a color she despised.
    • 1877 - During this time, the Daltons kept to themselves so as not to get dragged into the upheaval. This is when Mrs. Dalton abandoned the family and returned to her home country, leaving Mr. Dalton to care for Catherine mostly on his own. When Catherine gets her acceptance letter to Hogwarts, Mr. Dalton informed the girl that she would have to keep her heritage a complete secret since he feared she would be discriminated against by fellow wizards, the whole incident with the muggles making him paranoid.  
    • September 1877 - Catherine is sorted into Hufflepuff due to her kind, loyal and sweet nature. She is unaware of the effect she has on the male population and is proven to be quite dense and oblivious. She is quickly known for her torrid temper when boys pay her more attention than she is comfortable with which doesn't seem to stop some of them.
    • 1878 - Mr. Dalton had hoped to betroth Catherine to a man who had decided her 'had to have her' despite a massive age gap. The marriage would have been to advantage, the only snag was that the girl herself did not want it. As discussions over it pressed on, Catherines temper went off during one of the meetings and the man decided that she was quite a disagreeable thing and vowed to ruin her.  
    • 1879 - True to his word, the aforementioned man starts trying to ruin Catherines reputation but due to her sweet looks, no one wants to believe that the girl has a torrid temper despite the fact that it's true.
    • 1880 - After sticking it out for a long while in their hometown and dealing with the aftermath of Catherine spurning a man, Mr. Dalton decides to move to Hogsmeade to be closer to his daughter. This is also the year that they find out Mrs. Dalton had died, as it turns out that she abandoned her family to deal with an illness on her own. This spurs ambition in Catherine to become a healer.
    • October 31, 1880 - Catherine attends the All Hallows Eve Masquerade and highly enjoys her time there.
    • OWL Results:
      O - Potions
      O - Charms
      O - Herbology
      E - Transfiguration
      E - Defense Against the Dark Arts
      A in everything else due to not applying herself since they aren't 'required' courses to become a healer.
    • 1881 - Catherines compassionate nature comes into play when she frets over the escaped patient and the murders that occur. She often has arguments with purists that outright declare the murderer their hero. Finding out that the minister was the culprit, after all, has Catherine wondering if people in high positions can be trusted. Eventually, she decides that one bad egg does not ruin the coop.
    • 1882 - Mr. Dalton marries a childhood friend that had re-entered his life. Catherine is accepting of the woman and perceives her as being more of a mother than the deceased Mrs. Dalton had been though she is sure her biological mother loved her in her own way. Later in the year, the Daltons start up discussions on Catherines life after Hogwarts. Her parents want her to marry well and be cared for while Catherine really only cares about becoming a healer {at the moment, anyway}. This causes many tumultuous arguments between Catherine and her parents.
    • April 1883 - At the career fair of Hogwarts, Catherines ambition to become a healer grows and becomes more cement.
    • September 1883 - returns to Hogwarts for her final year and is nervous as hell about passing NEWTS and wonders if she should start addressing the whole husband thing like her parents want her to.
    • 1884 - In September, Catherine meets Caradog Weasley and they are smitten with one another right from the very start. By October, he asks for permission to court Catherine and it is granted. In November, Catherine starts an internship at Hogsmeade Hospital.
    • 1885 - Caradog proposes on Valentines Day and Catherine chooses to reveal the secret of her heritage. Unsure what to do, he confides in his twin and does not contact Catherine for a month despite the both of them considering themselves now engaged. It is ultimately decided that Caradog and Catherine should spend some time apart to assess whether his feelings are genuine. They continue contact through letters and Caradog promises to keep her secret, no matter what he decides.

      The physical time apart comes to an end in April, after Caradog had been rescued from the Ministry explosion that kept people trapped within for a week. They immediately set a date for the wedding. The pair are wed on June 10, 1885.
    • 1886: In February, Catherine discovers that she is pregnant and she eventually stops working at the hospital. In September, she gives birth to identical twin boys that are named Arthur and Neville.

    Sample Roleplay Post:
    Clarissa felt no remorse for her actions as her kick made contact and she witnessed the boy wincing. Smoothing out her skirts and making sure that she looked like the lady she was supposed to be, Clarissa took stock of the boy in front of her. "Oh books, I enjoy them as much as the next person but at the moment, I wish to never see another," she bemoaned as thought on what had been the most terrible experience for her. Clarissa then had to quirk an eyebrow as she noted the boy seemed to be holding back laughter. "And what, pray tell, is so amusing?" She demanded to know with her hands back on her hips as she looked up at the taller student. Clarissa did not look the least bit sorry as the boy stated that he had learned his lesson. In her opinion, the kick had been well deserved. "Good and thank you. I will take that as a compliment," she stated in a mightily haughty tone. "And you ought to watch that habit of yours, you could end up dead." She warned as the boy sat in the other chair and Clarissa sat back down on her own, absently noting the presence of one of the many chaperones for Slytherin girls.
