    Appearance: Most notable about Frances' appearance is her vibrant red hair and piercing eyes. She dresses fashionably and to suit her station of affability, she can at times be a little daring with her dressing but she rarely ever nears the outrageous end of the scale. She is left handed for both reading and writing and proud of it. She is not a terribly tall woman at a modest 5' and as far as her figure concerns, slender is a better word as opposed to buxom though she's not exactly lacking either in the curves department, just not as amply as others.
    May 7th, 1856: Frances Demelza Prewett is born the third child and second daughter to Gideon and Harriet Prewett. She is born in close succession to her sister, Felicia, which invites the close bond they come to share as they both grow older.
    1858: Franny shows her first display of magic when she turns one of her brother's toys into a doll by accident.
    1860: Frances is no longer the youngest child and gains a pair of younger brothers, Fitzroy and Felix.
    1861: Frances gains a younger sister, Florence.
    1863: Yet another sister arrives, this one by the name of Felicity. Franny remains closest to Felicia but likes her younger siblings all the same when they aren't squabbling.
    1864: Frederick is born. Eight year old Frances isn't greatly interested at this point as the novelty of new siblings is starting to wear off, she is more concerned with her other siblings who are old enough to play.
    1866: Fiona is born but Frances is less concerned with new sisters and more concerned about Felicia leaving her for her first year at Hogwarts.
    1867: Franny finally gets her Hogwarts letter and goes off to her first year of study. She happily makes Gryffindor and while initially disappointed not to be in the same house as Felicia, soon makes new friends and doesn't mind.
    July 17th, 1868: Frances loses her father. She, like her other siblings, is distraught. She believes, like her older brother, that her father was innocent and while she is not as distrusting toward Aurors as some of her siblings due to it, she does harbor her own share of resentment toward them for a long time.
    December, 1868: The last Prewett is born, a little boy called Fabian. Being back at Hogwarts again, Franny doesn't see much of him and isn't that interested when she has the chance to.
    1872: Franny takes her OWLs and gets a mixture of Os, Es and a couple As.
    1873: Felicia graduates and marries shortly after. For Franny who still has one more year of school left, she is very happy for her sister's happiness but sad to effectively lose her sister.
    1874: Frances graduates from Hogwarts with four NEWTs in Charms, Transfiguration, DADA and History of Magic. After her Coming Out ball, she decides instead of marrying straight away, she wants to try working at the Ministry and takes a job as secretary in the Department of Magical Transportation. She enjoys the job more than she expected to.
    January 1875: Franny's acquaintance of two months, Mr. Crabbe, begins to court her.
    November, 1875: Having met Mr. Crabbe at the Ministry and been courting him for eleven months, he proposes to her and she accepts.
    1876: Frances marries and becomes Mrs. Crabbe and more than willingly quits her job to become a full time wife and eventual mother.
    1878: Two years into her marriage, Franny is feeling the stress of not having produced a child - not because she is worried she won't ever have one but because she is afraid to disappoint her husband and extended family.
    1879: Still no child, Franny wonders if there is in fact something wrong with her. Thankfully by the middle of the year she has enough reason to believe she is expecting.
    January 2nd, 1880: A child is finally born! Franny is happier than she anticipated she would be at having a child and delighted that he is a boy. He is named Ichabod, though she quickly comes to refer to him as Ike for short.
    1883: Franny dotes on her son and is not worried about producing more children.
    May, 1884: Ichabod nearly dies after being hit by a carriage. The pressure to have more children is on.
    Personality: Franny's something of a wild card. She both submits to society quite happily and has her own flare and spunk. She is usually very sensible but that is not to say her inner Gryffindor doesn't ever take over. She is dutiful and respectful and while she holds certain beliefs such as socializing with only her equals, she is not by any means a bigot. She enjoys filling her role as wife and mother and while she has trouble conceiving more children, she is not as deeply bothered about it as some might be, after all she has a son already.
    She can be a little flamboyant at times but not distastefully so and she enjoys the social scene a great deal. Frances has a warm disposition and while she does hold certain morals close to heart, she does not usually alienate people for going against them. To an extent she is quite forward thinking - she was more than happy to have a taste of independence in the form of an occupation before marriage but had no qualms about giving it up to marry. She’s the sort to nudge the boundaries but avoid crossing the line.

    She is quite witty along with her good sense of humor and her temper is rarely ever provoked. Frances has a lively quality to her that she often finds immensely helpful in dispersing tension caused by other people.
