  • Has light brown hair and light eyes.
  • Dresses appropriately prudishly and avoids any vibrant colors. Favorites include creams, browns, tans, and the occasional green and silver if she's feeling Slytherin pride.
  • Wields her wand with her left hand.
  • History:
    1870 | Novella and her twin brother Neville are born to a pair of middle class St. Mungo's healers. Her parents' absence left her and her twin brother under the care of a nanny for most of their infancy, and later, their childhood.

    1872 | Novella's younger sister Hazel is born.

    1875 | Novella shows her first sign of magic three months after her twin brother. It comes after months of worrying that she would be a squib because her and her brother didn't have first signs of magic at the same time!

    1877 | Novella and her family move to Hogsmeade.

    1881 | Novella goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin. Her favorite classes are Herbology, Potions, and Transfiguration. Her least favorite classes are History (boring!) and Astronomy. She's also not a great flier.

    1883 | Novella adds Divination, Muggle Studies, and Arithmancy to her load and finds none of them useful.

    1884 | After a meeting with Mrs. Astrid Parkinson, Novella is declared the winner of the Parkinson scholarship for her ambitions in potioneering, herbology, and healing.

    1886 | Novella takes her OWLs and gets completely satisfactory scores! She drops all her classes except the five required to go into a healing internship.
