    In Character

    Nicknames: Nora.

    Birthdate: 6th September, 1859.

    Current Age: 25.

    Occupation: Employee at the Apothecary.

    Reputation: 5.

    Residence: Hogsmeade.

    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff.

    Wand: 12 inches. Silver birch. Unicorn tail core. Left handed.

    Blood Status: Pure Blood.

    Social Class: Middle class.

    Fredreich Waffling | Father | 1827-1883
    Klara Wurtemburg | Mother | 1844-1859
    Adalbert Waffling | Brother | 1852-

    Jenny Waffling | Aunt | 1839-
    Frances Waffling | Aunt | 1842-

    Appearance: Beautiful and blonde, blue eyed and pale. 5’4 with long limbs and a bright smile. Dresses well and occasionally with some ostentatious flair; sometimes forgets not to greet visitors with dirt under her nails and smudges on her arms from her gardening but never looks anything less than charming.

    1859: Born the second child of Fredreich and Klara Waffling her birth tragically results in the death of her mother. Her father mourns his wife deeply and dotes upon his baby daughter and small son.

    1865: Nora grows up a happy child. One day, though she is usually content to be with her father most of the time and the nanny and her brother when he is at work, she throws a strop at his not being there for her birthday and accidentally apparates to the Ministry, startling him and his co-workers immensely when she appears on his desk. She is so pretty and happy that no one minds.

    1871: Almost a year after she turns eleven she attends Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. She is immensely pleased and this joy gives her an approachable and friendly air at her first feast and she makes quick friends with a small number of people and is generally well-liked otherwise.

    1878: Nora leaves school with less than impressive results, although she is quite clever in potions and herbology and is never happier than when she can be in a garden. Her brother is by far the cleverer of them both but she doesn’t begrudge him, frequently teasing him that at least she’s better looking and likely to marry sooner.

    Seven years later this marriage scheme has not gone entirely to plan but both her aunties remained unmarried and they seem perfectly happy so she isn’t too worried! She does have several flirtations with various men, even walking out with one of them in 1880, convincing herself she is in love with him before promptly dumping him when she decides she isn’t.

    1883: Papa Waffling dies :( Nora is deeply distraught and cries forever. With the majority of wizards living in Hogsmeade now she opts to move in with her aunts in Bartonburg and gets herself a little job working in the Apothecary. Her brother, now in possession of a lot of money, sees that she is well provided for but damnit she just likes spending her days sorting out bat spleens and leeches!

    1885: Still not married. Still quite pretty. Still very much into cleaning up dragon livers.

    Personality: Friendly and affable Nora is a charming and popular sort of person who is amazeballs at selling stuff because she smiles lots and probably flirts without realising it. She is not always the brightest bulb but she does have a good heart and is engaging to interact with. She works hard, loves her family dearly and though she still mourns her father terribly she is rarely miserable for a particularly long time and when she is sad she finds gardening very therapeutic.
