    Octavia Lytton
    In Character
    Full Name: Octavia Genevieve Lytton
    Nicknames: Ava
    Birthdate: April 8th, 1859
    Current Age: 26
    Occupation: Fashion Designer for the House of Lytton
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: London
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: Holly, 14", swishy, veela hair
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Upper
    Bertram Lytton, 1809 - 1879, father
    Genevieve Lytton née Blythe, 1820, mother
    Marcus Lytton, 1849, brother
    Antonia ----- née Lytton, 1854, sister
    Octavia dresses only in the most fashionable dresses, often of her own designs, and stands at 5’2”. She has ample curves, accentuated by corseting, and a reasonably rounded face. Like her brother, her skin is rather olive toned, and her hair a thick and curling dark brown. Octavia is nearly always smiling, has dark eyes and is right handed.
    1859 | Octavia is born, the third and final child to Marcus and Genevieve.

    1861 | Marcus leaves for Hogwarts, something Ava hardly notices in all honesty.

    1864 | She shows her first sign of magic, vanishing a hideous fox-fur scarf some lady was wearing. Talk about crimes against fashion!

    1868 | Octavia gets taken shopping by her mother, and comes back with a whole basketful of fashion plates that she enjoys copying out when she has the chance.

    1870 | Hogwarts! Like her brother, Ava is sorted into Ravenclaw.

    1872 | For her third year, Octavia takes Divination and Ancient runes, the latter because runes do look rather pretty.

    1877 | Octavia comes out in a dress semi of her own designing- she bossed around the poor seamstress responsible for it rather a lot, and then added her own charms to allow the train of her dress to slowly fade into what looked like real frost before fading away.

    1879 | Ava’s father dies in circumstances Soph hasn’t detailed so w/e.

    1881 | Octavia catches the man she’d been sure was going to ask to court her in a compromising position with a maid- in revenge, she may have started the rumour that she actually caught him with his butler, something the man is too embarrassed to deny. In the years following, she failed to find a man interesting enough to capture her attention.

    1885 | Her brother opens his own Fashion house and Octavia appoints herself a designer. It doesn’t hurt that his business partner is awfully good-looking too.

    Octavia is very intelligent and quick witted, those is merely average in most forms of magic save charms, which was always her forte. She knows her mind and how to go about manipulating those needed to get what it is she has set her heart on, though she is also genuinely kind and loyal. Ava tends towards flamboyant, but isn’t eccentric.
