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

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
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.

Zola Gautier
Full Name: Zola Anne Gautier
Nicknames: Zo
Birthdate: March 5, 1853
Current Age: 35 years
Occupation: Professor of ghoul studies
Reputation: 7 being an American and a voodoo priestess, she’s a little less savory than most of those around the vicinity of Hogwarts
Residence: Hogwarts
Hogwarts House: American born, she attended Ilvermorny and was in Thunderbird
Wand: Ebony wood with a unicorn hair core, 12" and unbending flexibility
Blood Status: muggle-born
Social Class: there isn’t really a class system in New Orleans where she’s from but she would equate to a middle class woman in Europe
Family: most don’t acknowledge her since she left America to come to Hogwarts to teach there
Appearance: Standing slightly taller than average at 5 ft. 5 in. tall, Zola has long dark hair she tends to wear in dreadlocks pulled up around her face and equally dark eyes. Caramel skin with a natural flush to her cheeks gleams with health. Zola has basically never been sick a day in her life and even the pallid weather around Hogwarts has not decreased her overall health and vigor. She likes tight fitted clothing and tends to wear a high collared jacket with a keyhole cut out to show clavicle. She is ambidextrous in writing and wand work.
1853: Born the youngest of seven daughters from the seventh daughter of her grandparents, only three of which survived past their second year alive, Zola is considered magically gifted due to being the seventh of seven. Although her parents are squibs who found each other in New Orleans they considered magical gifts to be sent from ‘the ancestors’ and Zola was given whatever she wanted.
1860: Zola’s mother passes away and she is sent to live with her grandmother, a high priestess in the voodoo faith as well as a dark witch. She began to teach Zola everything she could since her magic had not yet showed up at six years old.
1862: Zola has her first encounter with a ghoul. She was watching her grandmother doing a ritual and when the first one showed up, it sent a shocking thrill through Zola and she knew exactly what she wanted to do should her magic show up.
1864: Zola’s magic arrives when she sends curtains flying while her grandmother is conducting a voodoo ritual. That summer she got her wand, an ebony carved beautiful thing that does not flex a bit, just like Zola.
1865-1872: Zola is sent to Ilvermorny and is Sorted into Thunderbird. She starts taking foreign magic in her fourth year and studying ghouls and poltergeists in her spare time. She tells no one that she wants to go to Europe when she can break free of her family obligations and study the different types of ghouls and scary things that lurk in the European darkness.
1878: Zola is offered the high priestess position in New Orleans’ voodoo coven after her grandmother passes away. She performs exorcism rituals in the evenings and spends her free time with the poltergeist that is her grandmother’s brother.
1885: Zola hears of a teaching position at Hogwarts for the ghouls studies position. She begins to make plans to move to Europe and spends the next two and a half years making plans.
Summer 1888: Zola breaks ties with her family and leaves for Hogwarts. She’s got the experience under her belt and plans to ask for the position when she arrives.
