    Mama Beaumont stands at the average height of five feet, two inches tall, and weighs one hundred and twenty give pounds after giving birth to five children over the years of her life. She has fair skin like any well-bred woman would, along with dark brown hair and eyes like her eldest and only son. She dresses in only the finest fashion, but currently is dressing in black because of mourning and shit. She wields her wand with her right hand.
    1838 | Cassandra is born at her parents' estate in Chambéry, France. She is the second born child and only daughter of Cretien and Juliette Babineaux, her brother, Laurent, being born twelve years before her.

    1843 | Cassandra shows her first sign of magic.

    1849 | Cassandra goes off to Beauxbatons for her first year of schooling. She finds herself exceeding in softer subject, such as Herbology and Charms instead of harsher subjects like (whatever equivalent there is to) DADA.

    1855 | At the end of her sixth year, Cassandra takes her yearly exams. Disappointed with her results and feeling no need to continue, she drops out of Beauxbatons. Later that summer, she meets Mathias Beaumont III at a ball she was attending and an engagement is secured less than six months later. In December, she married Mathias and is impregnated during their honeymoon.

    1856 | Cassandra and her husband pick up their things and move to England, where Mathias is quick to purchase multiple estates for sale to add to his wealth later on in life. Mathias Beaumont IV is born later in the year.

    1860 | Cassandra gives birth to a first daughter, Dorothee.

    1862 | A second daughter, a little girl named Francoise, is born into the family.

    1866 | Cassandra is upset to find that her fourth child, Oceane, is another girl.

    1868 | Mathias goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw.

    1869 | Anais, the final Beaumont child, is born at the family's estate in France while the couple and their children were on vacation for the summer.

    1871 | Dorothee goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw.

    1873 | Francoise goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw.

    1877 | The Beaumont family moves to Hogsmeade.

    1878 | Oceane goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin.

    1880 | Francoise marries Franklin Higginbotham-Blankenship, a man from a respectable family who works in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and is soon pregnant with a first child. In the Fall, Anais goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin, just like her older sister, Oceane. In the winter, Francoise gives birth to a first child, a daughter who she and her husband name Agatha.

    1881 | Dorothee marries Viscount Llewellyn Couture and moves off to Wales. Later in the year, Francoise gives birth to a second daughter, Henrietta.

    1882 | Francoise gives birth to a second daughter named Micllicent, and Dorothee gives birth to a first son named Clarence less than sixth months later.

    1883 | Tragedy strikes the Beaumont family when Cassandra's husband grows ill. He passes away in mid-May and leaves her and her children in deep mourning, particularly so with her and her son. Dorothee gives birth to a daughter named Blanche less than sixth months later.

    1884 | Her home in Hogsmeade is spared by the flames, but her older daughter, Francoise, has to move into her home with her husband due to the damage done to their home. While staying with them, Francoise finally gives birth to a son, a little boy named Lionel. Mathias also moves to Wales, as his home was destroyed.

    Blood purist. Meddling mother. Classist. Slightly racist. Charitable to some degree.
