    Autumn Avery
    In Character
    Full Name: Autumn Darlene Avery
    Nicknames: None
    Birthdate: September 22, 1867
    Current Age: 18
    Occupation: Student
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Hogsmeade, Bartonburg
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: Mahogany, 9", stiff, dragon heartstring
    Blood Status: Pure
    Social Class: Middle
    Clifton Avery, Father b.1824 d.1885
    Tabitha Avery nee Gamp, mother, b.1843 d.1878
    Summer Avery, half-sister, b.1856
    Vernon Avery, half-brother, b.1858
    Winter Avery, sister, b.1866
    Wilder Avery, brother, b.1870
    Appearance: Standing at a quite average five foot one, Autumn feels she is quite average in all aspects of her appearance. Brown hair with a slight wave to it when left down. Eyes are also a simple brown though luckily surrounded by quite thick and long lashes to hopefully bring her out of the realm of just average. Regardless of what she deems average appearances, she is quite confident in herself. And while she may not have dresses that are considered in the height of fashion, they are far from drab either. She is right handed.
    1867- Born during the autumn equinox, Autumn is the final daughter to be born.
    1870- Wilder is born, the last of the Avery children to be born. At three years old, Autumn hardly understands what is happening.
    1874- Summer graduates and debuts. Autumn loves being able to tag along for the purchase of new dresses for her eldest sister.
    1877- The family moves to Hogsmeade and Autumn couldn’t be more excited at the idea of a new adventure in a new place. All of the excitement sees Autumn’s first sign of magic by making all the flowers around the house to bloom and shine rather brightly.
    1878- Tabitha dies leaving an eleven year old Autumn quite devastated. She had always felt particularly close to her mother as she took after her quite a lot and was the main Avery child to enjoy her Quidditch stories.
    1879- Just a year after the loss of her mother, Autumn goes off to Hogwarts. It is a terrifying but exciting time for the young woman. She is sorted in Gryffindor.
    1881- It is rather scary and saddening when some muggleborn students go missing toward the end of her second year. Even though she’s pureblood, Autumn has never exactly looked on others of mixed or no blood. Even more disheartening is when Autumn starts her third year, quite set on playing Quidditch only to find girls are now banned from playing.
    1883- Though Autumn is excited the Quidditch ban is lifted, competition is stiff and she finds herself not able to make the team. She decides to join the Quidditch Club and focuses on her studies instead.
    1884- PLAGUE AND FIRE! Though it is all quite terrifying, it luckily doesn’t hit the Averys in any manner.
    Autumn starts her sixth year having earned rather remarkable scores on her OWLs. She is rather annoyed, and shocked, when another “Hogwarts Hussy” scandal hits. Shocked at the “hussy” and annoyed that another restriction is enforced upon the rest of the students. Luckily the cuffs aren’t atrocious though and seem to be an okay pairing with everyday attire.
    1885- The PMG happen and Autumn is quite excited at the prospect of meeting new students from different areas of the world. Autumn’s father dies leaving her quite shocked and stunned. She’s not quite sure what to think of the matter and is quite uncertain of what her future holds.
    1886- Though trying to be as vivacious and energetic as she once was, Autumn is still quite terrified of her future. With graduation just a few months away and her debut to come, she isn’t quite sure what to think. She’s not entirely sure how Vernon will handle the idea of suitors, especially since Winter has yet to find a husband. Not to mention the prep for NEWTs. Oh lordy. Autumn begins to question if she’ll even make it to her debut. Autumn manages to graduate with well enough NEWTs though only debuts through the Hogwarts COB. With high hopes, she purchases a new broom with Vernon and tries out for the Harpies. Unfortunately, she is unsuccessful and absolutely heartbroken. Her ultimate dream of being a famous Harpy like her mother is crushed and now she must act the part of a true debutante.
    Personality: Vivacious, caring, loyal, Quidditch lover, sensible, proper
