    Angie Swan (Sinnet)
    #1
    In Character
    Full Name: Angie Maria Swan Sinnet
    Nicknames: Ange
    Birthdate: 17th June, 1866 (the day Marius found her)
    Current Age: 21
    Occupation: Apprentice Curse Breaker
    Residence: London
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw Alumna
    Wand: 9" holly, phoenix feather, pliable
    Blood Status: unknown
    Social Class: lower
    Family:  
    Eli Swan | [1866-1887] "brother" - Close friend, housemate and co-worker, Angie and Eli share a flat in London and to prevent any unwanted suspicion, claim they are siblings.
    Marius Sinnet & Rebekah Asgaut | [vampires] adoptive parents - Angie was disowned after her graduation in 1884, she no longer speaks to her parents.
    ---Connor Sinnet, | [1882] adoptive brother - the product of an affair on Rebekah's half, Angie feels more for Connor than she would care to admit and sends him birthday and Christmas presents, despite her disconnection from her parents.

    Appearance: Slender with long lines and lean features, Angie has come into a few supple curves, but is hardly aware of them. Standing at an average five feet, three inches, she may still have some growing to do. Her light features very fortunately resemble Rebekah's though they are not biologically linked. It plays very well in their charade, though she wished she looked just like her mother. She finds both of her parents stunningly beautiful and while she finds herself pretty too, the angelic qualities of her parents are something she envies. Her soft golden hair falls in waves past her shoulders. Her grayish-blue eyes sit atop delicate features, a shapely nose and rosy cheeks. She wears very fashionable clothes at the insistence of her mother, but prefers jewel tone to her wardrobe, rich reads and blues. Naturally right handed, she holds her wand so, but is trying to become just as adept with her left hand.

    History:  The only child of Marius Sinnet and Rebekah Asgaut, Angie isn't really their child, though she enjoys being such. Her biological mother abandoned her in a forest just days into her life, or so Marius assumes, for some unknown reason. Ang tries not to think about it because the only options are very depressing and she chooses just not to dwell on it; she wouldn't change her life. There is a lot to wonder about but Solange chooses to look toward the future. They lived in England when Angie received her letter for Hogwarts and she was thrilled to attend. Thirsty for knowledge and some friends, she met her schoolwork and courses with a vigor that few eleven year olds could muster for school. Having had parents who had lived for centuries, her prior knowledge was extremely broad, but magic was new to her, though the mythical was not. Having vampires for parents meant a lot of history lessons.

    Hogwarts was a new and different setting for learning and Angie had always excelled. Though during her fifth year, the deaths at school inspired her extremely overprotective parents to move to Hogsmeade to be closer to her. She appreciates their concern immensely; it's nice to know people love you. She wouldn't cross her parents, not if her life depended on it. She is extremely grateful for their generosity and therefore keeps very quiet about the fact that they're vampires. It's nobody's business really, and it's not her secret to tell.

    Her schooling while interesting, has been easy for her. She spends an immense amount of time reading and asking her parents about history. Their guise in Hogsmeade is a bit of a sore spot of Angie; she doesn't like her father to lie and cheat his way through the town, but it's the only way they can pass for humans. Otherwise they'd have to move on more frequently and Angie doesn't like the idea of continuing to move around all over the place. Hogwarts feels like home as much as her parent's house does and while she doesn't always like spending long periods of time away from them, it's nice to have them close and be able to see them on visit weekends. It is really nice to have a consistent home base. Angie is extremely spoiled by both of her parents. Definitely a daddy's girl, she takes more after her father than her mother, but they still get along just fine. Listening to Rebekah's stories, Angie likes to think of her parent's romance like many centuries' long whirlwind adventure, but has an inkling this isn't always the case. She tends to spend more time with her father as they are more alike. She enjoys listening to his take on the things he has lived through and envies his experiences. Unsure of if she wants to be turned into a vampire just yet, she is leaning toward yes. Spending as much time as she wanted traveling and seeing the world seems like something she would greatly enjoy.

    Personality: Extremely bright, mature, quiet, demure, thoughtful, grateful, quick-witted, slow to anger, sheltered, often stubborn and inquisitive.
