    In Character

    Full Name: Penelope Darrow.

    Nicknames: Penny.

    Birthdate: 24th February, 1868.

    Current Age: 16.

    Occupation: Sixth year student.

    Hogwarts House: Slytherin.

    Wand: Hazel base with a phoenix core, 11 inches, springy. Penny uses her right hand.

    Blood Status: Half-blood.

    Social Class: Middle class.

    Family:
    Hamish Darrow | Father, 1815-

    Fairy Porter | Mother, 1849-1881

    Mercutio Darrow | Brother, 1865-

    Tessa "Tessie" Darrow | Sister, 1867-

    Gilderoy "Roy" Darrow | Brother, 1872-

    Ramsay Darrow | Half-brother, 1843-

    Casper Darrow | Brother, 1854

    Caitriona Darrow | Sister, 1857-1861
    Evander Darrow | Cousin, 1849-, and family

    Appearance: Standing at 5'3 and filled with untapped energy Penny has dark hair that she wears pulled back rather plainly - she is not at all looking forward to having to actually move with the trends when she comes out - and blue eyes, rendering her rather pretty. She has a slim figure that is beginning to fill out, but for now she is determined to bind her body as long as necessary so she can continue to play Quidditch.

    History:
    1868: Born to Hamish and Fairy Darrow, the youngest girl of all the Darrow siblings. She is a happy and playful child and ever so slightly spoiled.

    1873: Exhibits magic for the first time by making a series of apples fall out of a tree on Tessa’s head, something that amuses her to this day.

    1879: After a happy if unremarkable childhood Penny receives her Hogwarts letter and is sorted into Slytherin. The Sorting Hat tries to suggest Ravenclaw to her but Penny resists.

    1881: After two years of schooling in which she is not overly academic (largely through not applying herself) but doesn’t creature any trouble she is left devastated when her beloved mother dies.

    1883: Well out of mourning, but still missing her mother, Penny enters her fifth year and is thrilled to be allowed to play Quidditch as per her father’s permission. She becomes the Slytherin Chaser and is thrilled beyond words.

    1884: With her father’s permission she returns to the Slytherin team as Chaser and would love nothing more than to play professionally one day.

    Personality: Coming from such a large family, and with siblings that are more than twice her age with children of their own much the same age as her, Penny has never really know what it was like to be alone in the world. This has both good and bad effects - whilst she has never, ever been lonely and has always had a playmate to keep her occupied she has also never had time to calmly think. As a result she is a poor student, though an enthusiastic one in subjects such as Herbology and COMC, in which she jumps in with answers before thinking them through. Despite that fault she is very well-liked by her peers and her family and though her Professors sometimes find her a little distracted, rare is the member of staff that will truly despair of her.

    Sample Roleplay Post: See Helena.
