    Standing at five feet even, Evangeline has dark auburn hair and hazel eyes, as well as a square face with well-defined features. She is always clothed in the best fashions--though not necessarily what she would pick out herself. She is right-handed.
    1865. Evangeline is born the third daughter to Fergus and Audra Asperhand. She is born shortly after her twin sister, Etana. She proves to be an adventurous child, and the art of proper etiquette eludes her. This isn't lessened very much during childhood, despite the efforts of her parents and a long line of governesses and nannies.

    1870. Evangeline shows her first sign of magic.

    1874. Eleora leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin.

    1876. Evangeline and Etana leave for Hogwarts. Evangeline fully expects to be placed in the same house as her twin, but is shocked when the Sorting Hat places her in Ravenclaw and Etana in Slytherin. She's reassured by the thought that it doesn't matter so much that they are in the same house, but still.

    1877. Evangeline tries out for the quidditch as a beater. This doesn't go over very well at all with her parents when they find out, and she is effectively barred from it. This does little to curb her, however, though her further acts of rebellion mostly involve befriending lower class students and muggleborns.

    1878. For her third year, Evangeline chooses Care of Magical Creatures and Ghoul Studies as her electives.

    1881. Evangeline's spirit never seemed to wane during her time in school, and indeed only strengthen as time goes on. It is during this year that she meets Elias Grimstone, a middle class half-blood, and came to fall in love with him. In August, Eleora marries Artemidoros Etherium.

    1883. The relationship with Elias is discovered and comes to an end, resulting in what freedoms she still had being taken away. Evangeline and Etana graduate in the spring, and a heartbroken Evangeline spends the summer with Eleora. In September, Etana marries Vincent Mulciber--a second arranged match, after her last betrothed was "frightened" away by Evangeline's scandalous behavior.

    When she returns home, however, it's to discover that plans had been made for her own future. Her family found Mr. Edward Rowle, a widower some thirty years her senior. She is forced to swear her virtue under Veritaserum, and to make an Unbreakable Vow to honor and obey Edward, and to remain faithful to him. Their betrothal is officially announced in November. Evangeline is miserable and resentful.

    1884. Evangeline marries Edward in March, and so her life as the most miserable of creatures begins. She does not say so, of course, but she is very disappointed when neither plague nor fire claim her husband, though grateful that neither claim anyone she does care for especially. She is further displeased by the end of the year when she discovers that she is pregnant. At least Edward leaves her alone for now. She hopes that the baby will at least be a son so that he will hopefully visit her bed less--or not at all, if she's lucky.

    In June, Etana gives birth to a daughter, Annabel Lee.

    1885. In June, Eva gives birth to twins, Emilia and Elliott.

    1886. Just before New Year's, Edward goes missing. In the chaos of the blizzard on New Year's--and several days afterward--efforts to find him are postponed. When the snow is cleared, Edward is found dead and Eva can only be described as relieved.
