    Ruby takes more after her mother than her father where her appearance is concerned. He stands at the average 4'9'' and is thin, without looking underdeveloped. Her hair is dark brown and very curly, though most of the time she manages to keep it 'tame' and her eyes are big and have a warm light brown colour. She is very fond of pastels for her dresses and uses her right hand.
    May, 1873 — Ruby and Topaz are the first legitimate children born to Balthazar and Mary Urquart.

    Summer of 1874 — Ruby shows her first sign of magic when she turns a peeble into a ruby.

    1875 — Ruby's first brother, Sebastian, joins the family. She is not particularly interested in the boy, as she'd rather play with her sisters.

    1880 — The Urquarts move from London to Hogsmeade. Ruby's very happy about it, as her new home is much more magical and she can make wizard friends!

    September, 1882 — Delight goes to Hogwarts. Ruby, in a fit of jealously, throws a temper trantrum while the family is out shopping Delight's robes, claiming that she really wanted a new dress. In fairness, Ruby just wanted some attention too.

    1883 — Ruby is happy to learn that her mother is expecting a new baby.

    February, 1884 — Another pair of twins join the family, James and Adam.

    March, 1884 — Minister Darcy Potter is murdered which leaves the magical community of Britain in need of a new Minister. Balthazar decides to run, as the extra galleons that the position would grant him would be more than welcoming.

    May, 1884 — Topaz finally displays a sign of magic on their eleventh birthday.

    June, 1884 — Topaz's father is elected Minister of Magic!
    Ruby is a sweet and charming girl who has no trouble making friends. However, she dislikes feeling neglected and may do childish things when she feels that way. She is not the best at decision making and tends to ask for others' advice before making any.
