    @Andreas Hoch | [1539] Creator

    Scott Ravenhurst | [1841-1885] Father
    Annabelle Ravenhurst | [1845-1868] Mother
    Rebecca _____ née Ravenhurst | [1864] Sister
    Wilbur Ravenhurst | [1868] Brother
    Odette is naturally small, standing a little over four feet, six inches tall. If one was to only glance at her they might think she was a child, but if they were to take a closer look at her facial structure and features they'd realize she was a fully-grown woman. She weighs a little over ninety pounds, her excess weight showing up in her breasts, hips, and bottom. She has a curvaceous figure (for her size, mind you), her corset working its wonders over the four years she's been wearing it.

    Odette's hair is a medium brown shade and tails down to her mid-back when let down. Due to social standards, her hair usually remains in a fancy updo or braid and is topped with a hat to match her dress. Her eyes, on the other hand, can be compared to the light hue of periwinkle, though they lack the violet tone that periwinkle does have. She dresses in fairly average dresses for a middle class woman, though she highly prefers cotton to anything else. She is left-handed.
    1866 | Odette is born to Scott and Annabelle Ravenhurst. Annabelle suffers complications from childbirth from her small stature and bleeds a little too much. Much to everyone's surprise, she survives the nights to come and can properly and efficiently care for her child days after giving birth.

    1868 | Annabelle's third birth with her son Wilbur is not as lucky. After giving birth, she suffered from extreme bleeding and eventually got infections within days. She passed away four days after giving birth with both her daughters, her husband, mother, father, and newborn son at her side.

    1870 | Odette shows her first sign of magic while playing with her younger brother and older sister. While playing a magical creature card game her father had bought, she turned one of the cards into the one she wanted.

    1875 | Rebecca goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. She finds that she loves her Defence Against the Dark Arts and Charms class.

    Summer 1877 | On the thirteenth of July, Odette receives her Hogwarts letter by owl at her family's home in London. Extremely excited, she pulls her father straight down to Diagon Alley after he returns from work to purchase all her supplies. Along with her robes, cauldrons, books, and various other supplies, she purchased her eight inch apple wand and a older kitten who she names Morcant.

    Fall 1877 | In September, Odette boards the train to Hogsmeade with her older sister. She befriends a few female students her age on the train, and another on the boat to Hogsmeade. Upon entering the sorting ceremony, she is sorted into Hufflepuff, just like her older sister. As the year progresses, she finds that she loves her Potions and Transfiguration class, but dislikes History of Magic.

    1879 | Odette adds Arithmacy, Care of Magical Creatures, and Ancient Studies to her schedule. She finds that she's both strong in Arithmacy and Care of Magical Creatures, but immensely dislikes Ancient Studies.

    1880 | The Ravenhurst family moves to Hogsmeade in the winter.

    1882 | Odette takes her OWLs and is satisfied with her scores.

    1884 | Odette takes her NEWTs in the spring and is satisfied with her scores. She considers going into an occupation that might not be so feminine, but decides to go work at the Ministry of Magic as a Welcome Witch until she marries. That summer, the plague and fire ravage Hogsmeade. Her young nephew, Edward, dies as a result of the flames in Wellingtonshire, and Rebecca and her family go into mourning as a result of this.

    Charms E E
    Defence Against the Dark Arts O O
    Herbology A
    History of Magic P
    Potions O O
    Transfiguration O O

    1885 | Odette accepts a surprise proposal from a complete stranger named Julian Fisk out of fear he'd be the last man to ever ask. Later in the spring, Odette's father is killed in the Ministry Explosion. Because he was her last living male relative besides her younger brother, she went off to live with her aunt on the coasts of Scotland. Her aunt breaks off the engagement rather swiftly and makes an effort to keep Odette out of the home at all costs.

    1886 | Odette is changed into a vampire.
