She prefers neutral colors like white or gray in dresses though she has developed fondness on the colors green and violet. Her hair is usually placed in an elaborate hairstyle

    Bellamira was born on the year 1857. Her parents were expecting a Heir but the two were still overjoyed in receiving the little girl. Her childhood was relatively normal though her parents were quite strict with her upbringing. She had developed a talent in dancing and playing the piano. She was also fluent in different languages such as French, Latin and Italian.

    In 1864 Violetta is born. Although her parents were disappointed that she wasn’t a boy Mira couldn’t ask for anything better. She adored her little sister as she worked hard to become a role model for her. When Violetta was only a few months old, Bellamira had shown her first sign of magic as she saved the baby from falling.

    She received her Hogwarts letter in the year 1869. She was later sorted in to Slytherin but the Sorting hat was also thought of placing her in Gryffindor. She then develops her love for potions and herbology. She had taken up Ancient Runes and COMC for her electives. She was chosen prefect in the school year 1873-1874.



    She continues her studies for her NEWTS with Herbology, Potions, DADA,Transfiguration and Charms. She was appointed as Head Girl in her 7th year. Her father was very pleased to hear about this.


    She graduates and debuts. She meets Joseph Dawlish, A Gentleman from a Respectable family. She was then engaged after  two months of exchanging letters and meeting each other . When the time came that Joseph  asked her father for permission , He denied it. Her father was angry at his daughter at not telling him about it. He fully knows she could do better than him. After more arguments, He allows his stubborn daughter to  to marry but being furious at her, he almost removes her from his will. She is then estranged from them after her marriage for two years. She tried to write to her sister ones she was at Hogwarts but she got no replies from them. 

    Their lack of children for in the first 3 years of their marriage made her depressed.   Her husband suggest for her to work at St. Mungo’s to pursue her passion for potions and herbology (& to distract her). She starts working as an intern at the Potions and Plant Poisoning department of St.Mingo's  in the year 1878. She then became a healer the next year.

    She had fallen pregnant on 1879 but it was a miscarriage.
    The next year her daughter was born. Two years later a bouncing baby boy was born. 

    Her family was struck with the Laughing Plague . Luckily, her family had survived it.
    For now she is trying to rekindle her relationship with her family though she is having a hard time.
