    History:

    1870| Kat is born and named after her two grandmothers. Cassandra Midford finds out that she could not bear more children due to complications. Although saddened by the news, the couple would still find the baby a wonderful addition to the family.

    1880| She was not completely excited for Hogwarts as she was an extremely quiet and shy girl. Katherine could remember being uncomfortable with the atmosphere of the the Great Hall. When she was sorted, the sorting hat contemplated on Slytherin or Ravenclaw and decided that Ravenclaw best suited her. It was a shock and she was quite disappointed with the result but a few weeks later she settled quite well at her second home.

    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 nod. 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 and liked it. 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.
