    Wand: 9 ½ in., willow, surprisingly swishy, phoenix tail feather

    Elias Paxton, Husband [1852-1883]

    Atticus Vane, Father [1837]
    Orla Vane née Cattermole, Mother [1838-1875]

    Alexandra Vane née Paxton, Stepmother [1857]
    Arnold Vane, Half-Brother [1882]
    Attie stands at the slightly above average height of five feet, four inches with a lean build though - thankfully - she does have pleasant enough amount of curves. She has blonde hair, hazel eyes and a clear complexion. She is right handed. Attie dresses in clothing suitable for a woman of her age though she tries to stay up to date on fashions so long as they don’t seem entirely hideous.
    1860: Attica is born the second child and first daughter of Atticus and Orla Vane.
    1863: A sister, Lillian, is born.
    1865: Another sister, Gabriella, quickly nicknamed Ella, is born.
    1868: Allister, a brother, is born.
    1869: Attie has her first signs of magic.
    1872: Attie goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.
    1875: Orla dies, leaving Attie devastated as she dearly adored her mother.
    1876-1877: Attie manages to get decent OWL grades for herself.
    1878: Attie is surprised and somewhat displeased when she is pulled out of Hogwarts before completing her schooling to move to America. She is even more displeased that this move means her younger sisters will have a lacking in formal magical education. Miss Baxter is all well and good for seeing to their education but surely, they would all benefit from proper instruction? Attie has an internal mental breakdown that is carefully concealed as her being quite amenable and adaptable to the move.
    1879: Atticus comes into the contact of a wealthy family by the name of Paxton. He married a daughter from the family and marries Attica off to their son in exchange to getting himself named as their heir! At first, Attie is amenable to the marriage. That is, until just before the first full moon that comes along during her first months of marriage, when her father informs her that Elias, her husband, is a werewolf!

    All the same, Attica tries her best to get along with her husband having romantic notions that they might come to love one another. Likely an idea brought on by reading Belle et la Bête. Unfortunately, Elias proves to be deplorable to her. She also suspects him of having other sorts of inclinations. She keeps the werewolf thing a secret from all, even her most trusted siblings.

    Basically, everything is complete shit.

    1880: A better year: Attie delivers her first child, a son named Albert which results in a somewhat civil life between herself and her husband (mostly because they hardly ever speak). Lillian debuts into magical society in proper manner. And even better, Ella seems to be returning to her usual self.
    1882: A half-brother, Amos, is born to Alexandra and Atties father. Lillian turns down her fourth proposal and Ella debuts into society.
    1883: Elias dies, Attica privately celebrates. She goes into mourning as is expected of her but doesn’t feel much like a grieving widow.
    1884: The family moves back to Britian which Attie is immensely pleased about. She is well aware of what her father expects of her in regards to her sisters, that they be well known and make good, wealthy matches. However, after having experienced what she feels to be the worst marriage ever when it had been for money, she is determined to see her sisters marry for love.

    As for herself, she is skeptical of the chances but still holds hope of finding love for herself. All the same, her focus is on getting her sisters wed to men that will adore and love them.
    Romantic, diplomatic, mildly scheming, idealistic, prone to internal freakout sessions that are well masked, indecisive
