    Appearance:

    Trinity is above average in height, standing at five feet six and one half inches tall, and she loathes it. She wishes she were shorter and more dainty in appearance. She has long blonde hair that she styles appropriately. She has brown eyes. She dresses in both muggle fashions and wizarding robes (and she prefers the muggle fashions). She is right handed.

    History:

    November 30th, 1867 | After a series of stillborns and babes not living more than a few hours, a healthy baby girl joins the upper middle class wizarding Estep family of three in Banff, Scotland.

    1871 | Trinity isn’t even four when her sister Sarah goes to Hogwarts.

    1875 | Trinity displays magic at a family Christmas party.

    1879 | In September 1879, Trinity goes to Hogwarts after receiving her card over the summer. She went shopping in Hogsmeade with her father, a Hogwarts Hospital employee. Sarah had also gotten a job in Hogsmeade and started her day with the family. During the sorting ceremony, Trinity is sorted into Ravenclaw. She enjoys Flying, Potions, and Transfiguration most.

    1881 | In her third year, Trinity selects Ancient Runes and Arithmancy as her preferred electives. She fantasizes about being a Cursebreaker, though knows she might settle for Artifact Incidents at one of the hospitals upon graduation.

    1883-1884 | Her fifth year arrives. Trinity becomes nervous over her OWLs, though studies hard to keep up her grades so that she can pursue a career as a Healer in the future. Summer 1884 she receives her scores, and she is relieved. Her scores are as follows:

    ANCIENT RUNES | EE

    ARITHMANCY | EE

    ASTRONOMY | A

    CHARMS | O

    DEFENSE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS | EE

    HERBOLOGY | EE

    HISTORY OF MAGIC | A

    POTIONS | O

    TRANSFIGURATION | O
    Trinity dropped Astronomy and History of Magic.
    1885 | As a seventh year, Trinity started focusing on her NEWTs in order to become an Artifact Incidents Healer. In December 1885, she nearly got strung up in a prank orchestrated by Peeves withe the Head Boy, Theodore Gallivan.

    1886 | Trinity receives her NEWT scores and begins her internship at Hogsmeade Hospital in the Artifact Incidents Department.

    February 1887 | On February 14th, Trinity and Theodore Gallivan got tangled up in the arrow and cherub prank in Padmore Park. They subsequently kissed and Theodore almost drowned. He survived and awkwardly avoided his former classmate since, much to Trinity's conflicted feelings.

    May 1887 | Trinity falls while rollerskating and shatters her wand.

    June 1887 | Trinity gets a new wand only to encounter #Tigerpocalypse. She is safe,
    though was bruised and shaken up. She had turned into a recluse after completing her internship.

    Personality:
    studious | warm | intelligent | goal-oriented | a bit naive perhaps | tender hearted
