    Family Tree

    Katherine is a slender young lady.Her wand hand is her right. She stands at 5’4 and weighs 114 lbs. She was blessed with round pale blue eyes from her Father. She inherited her mother’s curly blonde hair and pale complexion. Her cheeks had a natural flush. When not in her school robes, she dresses with the latest muggle fashion for her age. She prefers her dresses to mostly be pastel shades. Her locks were usually tied up in a messy braided bun with a butterfly comb as a hair accessory. Whenever she smiles you will see that she has dimples on each cheek. Her skin is sensitive to sunlight that she needs to use a parasol whenever she stays in the sun for too long.

    Katherine was the last child and only daughter of two talented and well-known wizards, her father an outstanding auror and her mother a house wife.  She grew up in a normal household. At a young age she was raised to be a refined young lady.As a child she rarely interacted with those her age unless they were family. She has shown a promising talent in magic at this very tender age which made her parents really happy.
    At the age of eleven she had received her letter from Hogwarts. She was excited but at the same time scared. She thought that she wasn’t ready to face other people. Her brother, Dylan, told her that she was going to have a great time. During the ride to Hogwarts she was extremely quiet. She was unfamiliar with the atmosphere inside. At the Great hall her brother was watching her keenly as her name was called. Her parents preferred her to be in Slytherin like the rest of her family.  The Sorting hat placed her in Ravenclaw for her high intelligence. They were both surprised but quickly accepted it.
    During her 1st to 3rd year at Hogwarts she preferred to be alone. She had a small circle of friends. Most of her time was devoted in studying at the library. She has gotten High grades in all of her classes especially charms. She was constantly bullied but she knew better and constantly just brushed it off.
    Now as a 4th year student she wants to become more sociable.

    • Creative
    • Well Mannered
    • Sarcastic
    • Mischievous

    Katherine is caring, motherly and very sensitive. She is bubbly and cheerful, a trait that most people won’t see at first glance as she can appear to be snobbish but she is very friendly. She is a keen observer but sometimes observes useless thing  such as a single fly behind you. She can also have a short attention span especially if she has no interest in what you’re talking about. She is intelligent and quick witted. She is also ambitious. She will do anything to make her dreams come true.

    Sample Roleplay Post:
    The light of the fireplace was starting to burn out. In the dimly lighted room sat Katherine with a book in her hand. She was engrossed with reading that she hadn’t notice it was already dusk.  The book was given to her by a muggleborn witch she has grown fond of at school.  She smiled lightly as she turned to another page. From this book she has seen a glimpse of how muggle life works. She was fascinated on how they can live without magic. She always read the book alone for she knows that it is not allowed to read such literature. It can stain her clean reputation that’s why she was careful.

    Her thoughts was disturbed by a knock at the door of the family room. She looked at the door and frowned at it. “Come in..” She said. The maid entered with tea. The maid walked towards her awkwardly. It seems that she was clumsy and can hardly pull herself together. The clumsy woman placed the tea at the table and gave the Lady a curtsy. Katherine replied to her with a curt not. The woman quickly went out of the room.
    Katherine was highly displeased with the maid. The woman was not only clumsy but she was also impolite! She sighed. She didn’t want to anger herself just because of a maid. It will only cause gray her to grow on her luscious locks. She took the teapot gingerly and poured tea on her cup. She took the teacup carefully. She drank slowly and savored the flavor.  The tea tasted delicate and light. She placed the china down and continued reading.

    Suddenly the doors busted open. The sound startled young lady that she accidentally knocked the teapot down. She saw a young man roughly 5’9 in height. The both of them had similar features except his face was more masculine. The man smirked as he enters the room. The young lady glared at the man as she stood up. “Hasn't etiquette class taught you something? I guess your brain is THAT small Dylan.” Katherine’s glare shifted into a smirk that rivaled her sibling. “You went out of the house without Mother and Father’s permission haven’t you? Ha! Wait until I tell them!” The blonde girl giggled as she approached her brother.
