    Lily Huddleston
    In Character
    [Image: I3GWdhr.png]
    Full Name: Lily Rose Huddleston
    Nicknames: Lils
    Birthdate: March 28, 1865
    Current Age: 20 Years
    Occupation: Debutante
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: 10 3/4", bendy, willow, Unicorn Tail
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Middle
    Terrence Huddleston, father, 1841
    Sylvia Huddleston nee Brownhill, mother, 1845
    Lily has straight, brown hair and warm, brown eyes. Her wand hand is her right hand. She falls just below the average height for a woman at 4'9" and has a figure suited for her height. She is a petite woman with delicate features. Lily prefers to wear wizarding robes as she finds them much more comfortable than muggle clothing.
    1865 -Lily Rose is born the first child and daughter of Sylvia and Terrence Huddleston. She was named for her mothers two favorite flowers. In later years, she would prove to be their only child after Sylvia suffered a miscarriage and a stillborn before being told it was medically impossible for her to have any more children.

    1865-1876 - Lily had a happy childhood without much crisis occuring in her life other than her mothers fertility problems and subsequent depression that passed before Lily was even old enough to understand anything that was happening with her mother. When she was five, she had her first bout of accidental magic, much to her parents pleasure.

    1876 - Lilys letter for Hogwarts arrives and in September, she heads off for Hogwarts. The hat debates between Slytherin and Gryffindor for a bit of time before putting her in Slytherin.

    1877 - The Huddlestons had the luck of not being exposed during the time when Muggles had turned against wizards. After everything had been taken care of, the family decided to stay in Liverpool as Terrences business was doing extremely well.

    1881 - The Huddlestons move to Hogsmeade after deciding that they missed friends that had moved there in the past years since 1877.

    1883 - Lily graduates and attends the Coming Out Ball. Lily highly enjoys her first season as a debutante despite not getting as many suitors as the other girls, mostly because she didn't find anyone interesting enough to get to notice her.

    1884 - Lily is still a debutante and her father will not allow her to get a job, even if she wanted one {she doesn't}. Thus, she continues to enjoy living off of her daddys money while half-heartedly attempting the whole husband hunting thing.
