    Maybelle stands at 4'0" and has a slight, slender build. She has blue eyes and long, blonde hair that can sometimes end up a little unkempt if she feels that she is too busy to bother getting her hair brushed. She has a clear complexion and slightly pale skin. Maybelle dresses according to her mood and how she personally perceives the weather will be like later on in the day. She is almost always wearing some sort of gloves on her hands. Her wand hand will be her left hand. Maybelle has a deep fondness for the color of lavender.
    1874 - Twins Maybelle and Kipling are born on July 21. Later in the year, there is a fire that claims the lives of their parents and sister. The twins were saved by their nursemaids and Maybelle obviously does not remember the incident though she has always had a fear of fire. The surviving siblings are sent off to live with a distant relative, Great - Aunt Parmenia.

    1878 - Maybelles first signs of magic show up when she magically repairs a toy she had accidentally broken. This same year Maybelle hears the term “crazy cat lady” and right then and there decides that she wants to be one despite not fully knowing what the phrase means. It became very apparent that Maybelle had come to love cats and would often chase after the 23 cats that Parmenia had.

    1882 - Tilly goes off to Hogwarts which doesn’t seem to affect Maybelle very much though she is secretly afraid that Tilly will never come back. The worry is put aside when Tilly comes home for the summer.

    1884 - Maybelle finds herself uprooted from the only home she has ever known as their great-aunt moves them to Wellingtonshire. Maybelle finds the new house to be quite boring compared to their old one. She also hates the idea of Etsy getting married because she fears that Etsy will abandon them and forget all about them.

    1885: Maybelle is sorted into Slytherin. That Christmas she is gifted a turquoise kitten whose paws change color depending on its mood.

    How did you hear about us?: [where or who?]
    Maybelle is a seer who is currently unaware of her gift and thus has random, confused moments where she knows things but doesn't know how she knows them.
