    MISS PANDORA PERIWINKLE WINTERDOWNE

    PROFILE | FAMILY

    Pandora is a halfblooded Hufflepuff, born May 31st, 1869. Though she does have some veela blood in her, it does not make much of an impact on those around her. She comes from an untraditional family, wherein her mother thinks nothing of working (or being otherwise weird), and her father is dead but still hangs out with them. Though she is not exactly scandalous, ‘the norm’ is something that Dora has no problem dancing around.

    MISS DESDEMONA FLORENCE COLLINS-POTTER

    PROFILE | FAMILY


    Dezzie is a halfblooded Gryffindor alumna born on February 5th, 1882. Particularly plain in appearance, she never even expected to marry after finishing at Hogwarts, and instead launched into a quidditch career. Dezzie tries her best to succeed, but often ends up disappointing herself and those around her--something of a family curse.

    MISS INDIRA MABEL SINGH

    PROFILE | FAMILY

    Indira is a halfblooded Slytherin alumna born on November 4th, 1859. The daughter of a healer and a potioneer, Indira has dabbled in both herself. Her mother’s choice of an Indian husband meant that Indira has no contact with her maternal family, and the distance means she has not met her paternal family. Indira sidelines as an abortionist, though she does not approve of wanton women and she struggles when her efforts take her patients’ lives.

After his brother abandoned the family and his father died suddenly, he inherited the family farm far younger than he might have liked.
