Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

When your mum thinks you're gay for your best friend (but you probably are)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Hector Rookwood | Father | b. 1837 d. 1883
He was cold man she cared quite little for. Rather she often hated her father. He had a tendency to belittle others, something that often caused him to cross with his youngest daughter as she didn't take well to being degraded even as a child. She might have not minded being put down if her father actually had done something with himself and proved he was the better Without, his mannerisms just stuck a nail. He died in an 'accident'. That's the official ruling. She doesn't believe it.

Polymnia "Polly" Rookwood | Mother | b. 1850 d. 1883
Quite easily the favorite of her two parents - though with her regards towards her father it wasn't that difficult a title to hold. The two were not that close, as she was raised primarily by staff, however she has no qualms with her mother and actually quite loves her and interacted with her enough to the point in which she called Faye her 'little fairy', while not that creative, Faye did like it. Polly snapped after discovering her husband had two mistresses and accidentally killed him with a fatal stunning spell. Distraught, she then killed herself by exploding the parlor room.

Justice Rookwood | Brother | b. 1872
She has grown to like her brother far more after he gave up his pointless attempts at lying to her. Since his newer honesty, she's found him to be pleasant company - when she's in the mood and he isn't with his obnoxious herd of male friends. He's far better to discuss books with than Clementine and tends to make a few more intelligent comments. As soon as he goes off about sports or something she isn't interested in, she has a tendancy of drifting off mid conversation.

Clementine Rookwood | Sister | b. 1873
Not just her sister, but her roommate durning the holidays. The girl tends to strike her as boring and Clem wakes up far to early for any sane person. Beyond that she does actually care for her sister and generally doesn't mind being around her as Clem is quite a nice person. She just wishes that Clementine did always need to not be alone.

Eldridge ---- | Uncle/Guardian | b. 1842
The man is a little odd, to say the least, even for her, but she seems to like him the most of their siblings and is probably more fond of the freedom he grants them than she is him per say. His odd, deformed reptile room is probably the most fascinating thing about him that she has a morbid curiosity about even though, according to her brother, she isn't to do in there.
Far less pretty than her elder sister has proved to be, Faye's appearance mimics her brother's in nature and stick to the darker side. Hair and eyes that match in shade, such a dark brown it could be taken as black in but just the right light.

Her hair curls naturally in medium tight ringlets with a volume almost impossible tame. However with much dedication it is quite possible, however unless someone does it for her, it is fated to stay in it's natural chaotic form.  Therefore it is far more commonly done at home where there are servants to do it for her.

While she isn't as pretty as her sister, that isn't to say she didn't get lucky with genetics compared to the masses as she to supports the family's clear pale skin and while she has a few years till puberty, she'll likely stay that way as well.

She stands a bit tall for her age. At a four foot seven, she seems more like she grew a bit quicker than most rather than growing to some outrageous height and she'll likely only reach five foot three or four in stature. As of now, her frame tends towards a lighter build though she isn't skinny per say.

As for dress, Faye tends to dress appropriate for her stance in society, however she favors simple colors and patterns if she is allowed to choose. More often than not, she doesn't care enough to choose and will wear she will wear whatever is given to her.

She writes with her left hand, though has been trained to use her right, she often lapses and falls back to her left as a default. She will presumably do the same with her wand.
1877 | The last child of Hector and Polymnia is born, a girl they name Faye. While she is naturally a quite child, she doesn't really get her chance to shine as almost instantly the family is forced to relocate to the countryside to escape the muggle riots. As a baby, she has no complaints about the move as it really doesn't yet change how she lives yet either way. She spends most of her time either sleeping or being amused by her sister.

1880 | At three, she shows her first signs of magic by gluing her nanny to the chair when she refused to finish the story they had been reading.

1882 | She joins her sister and brother with the family governess and proves to be quite well off and catches a hold of things almost instantly and rarely seems to have trouble with a concept. She grows bored of her feminine classes of etiquette - that all and all seem quite lost on her, while she can act on it, she rarely does, dancing, English, French, music and literature and soon starts to insist upon joining her brother in his and proves quite good at mathematics. In fact she far enjoys these classes more than her own.

1883 | Back from an outing with her siblings and some of the staff, little Faye is quite confused by the large amounts of strangers in their house and is quite insistent she say when she is shooed away under the excuse that it was 'no place for a little girl'. Eventually they let her stay. She's already a little odd
