    Eva Sleptova
    #1
    In Character
    Full Name: Eva Nikolaevna Sleptova
    Nicknames: --
    Birthdate: 21 February 1866
    Current Age: 21
    Occupation: Debutante
    Residence: Hogsmeade; East Founders Way
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: Sligthly unyielding, 12'', siberian pine and veela hair
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Upper Class
    Family:
    Nikolai Sleptov • 1837 • DADA Professor •  father
    Eva adores her father but he also pisses her off when he’s being stubborn about things. Or when he goes to Russia and gets married without telling her or Pet.

    Svetlana Sleptova née Kaminska • 1842-1878 • mother
    Svetlana died when Eva was about eleven or twelve, but Eva still feels like she doesn’t remember much of her. She hardly cries herself to sleep over her dead mother, but she still wishes she was still alive.

    Petra Sleptova • 1869 • Ravenclaw Student • sister
    Pet is consistently Eva’s favourite relative. Despite their differences, the Sleptov girls are rather close. She’s kind of like the Katniss to her Prim except the whole volunteering for the Hunger Games thing because #selfpreservation.

    Ustinya Sleptova née Konstantinova • 1865 • stepmother
    Fuck this bitch.

    Ivan Sleptov • 1884 • half-brother
    Ugh. She likes him slightly better than his mother.


    Ivana de Havilland née Sleptova • 1853-1882 • aunt
    Auntie Ivy was Eva’s biggest maternal figure after her mother’s death, and then she died as well. She was heartbroken when she died. She still is. She tries not to think about Auntie Ivy too much because that makes her sad and then she wants to cry and that makes her weak.


    Yuliya Sleptova • 1779 • Spinster •  great-aunt
    GA Yuliya moved in with the Sleptovs in November 1884, because her own house burnt down in the Wellingtonshire fire. She serves as Eva’s chaperon and Eva’s actually pretty cool with this because she likes Auntie Yuliya.
    Appearance:
    Eva is five feet and three inches tall and svelte. She has a snowy white skin which is really sensitive to the sun and several plants, which is one of the main reasons Eva dropped Herbology after her fifth year. Her face is round with delicate, doll-like features and full lips. Her hair is long and dark brown and her eyes are big and light green. Eva is right handed.

    From a very young age, Eva took an interest to fashion. Worth is among her favourite designers, but she also follows religiously the other Parisian fashion houses. She likes rich, lavish colours, especially greens and blues. True to her Russian descent, Eva also loves furs. She prefers clothing that is slightly more mature for someone her age, but she knows her limits and can pull it off.

    Accent wise, Eva's is hardly as noticable as her father's. She arrived in England at a young enough age for it to have watered down. It tends to become more noticable when she's excited or angry. There are also some words that she just can't pronounce correctly enough. She's also likely to mispronounce new words. Her written English is impeccable.
    History:
    February 21st, 1866: Eva is born in a cold afternoon in her family's home in Russia. She is the first child of Nikolai and Svetlana Sleptov.

    July 19th, 1869: Eva's younger sister, Petra, is born. Although Eva needs time to get used of being an older sister, she soon starts to enjoy her duty as the eldest child. Eva becomes rather overprotective towards her sister and plays with her every day.

    January of 1876: After Nikolai is fired from the school he was teaching, Eva starts to see her father more frequently.

    July of 1877: Father is given a job at Hogwart's school of witchcraft and wizardy, so the family moves from their house in Russia to the village of Hogsmeade. Eva, who loves changes, quickly gets used to her new life, although she wishes they could return to Russia as soon as possible.

    August of 1877: Eva refuses to buy her wand from Ollivander's, so she buys her wand from a popular Russian wand maker instead.

    September of 1877: Eva starts her schooling and Hogwarts where she is sorted into Slytherin. Despite the fact that she still can't speak English that well, she is confident because of her father's position as a professor.

    March of 1878: Eva's mother dies. Eva, who was always fond of her mother, can't get used of the fact that she is dead. For a couple of months she gets closed to herself and seeks company from clothes and shopping.

    September 1st, 1880: Petra begins her schooling and Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw. Eva is rather disappointed that her sister didn't join her in Slytherin.

    February of 1881: Aunt Ivana moves to Hogsmeade. Eva is glad, and soon grows fond of the woman.

    October of 1882: Her now married aunt Ivana dies due to a miscarriage. Eva is really sad about that fact, as Ivana was something close to a maternal figure in her life.

    July of 1882: Eva gets her OWL results.

    February of 1883: An amortentia spiked tea makes Eva kiss the headmaster of Hogwarts, Phineas Black in the library. Luckily for her, few know that she was the girl who caught kissing the headmaster, but that trully embarasses Eva who avoids tea from that day.

    February 19th, 1884: Eva meets Frederick Humphrey-Mavis, Viscount Corcrest. She quickly realizes that he's the one that she wants. Oo, Oo, Oo honey

    March 5th, 1884: Ustinya delivers a son who is named Ivan.

    April of 1884: This time Eva meets Lady Elizabeth Humphrey-Mavis, Freddie's sister. The two will grow to be excellent friends.

    Summer of 1884: Eva has every intention to spend her summer debutanting it up. Those plans are ruined with the outbreak of the Laughing Plague, the quarantine that traps her and her family in Hogsmeade and the fire that partially destroys her home. At least her NEWT scores are nice?

    November of 1884: Her Great Aunt Yuliya arrives from Russia. She previously lived in Hogsmeade but left shortly before Eva's debut to deal with some business shit in Russia. Because the fire destroyed her home, she stays over with the Sleptovs. She also starts serving as Eva's chaperon.

    January of 1886: It takes some time to convince Eva's father, but Freddie gets permission to court her!

    November of 1886: Freddie proposes to her!

    1887: Eva spends the most of the year planning her wedding.
    Personality:
    AMBITIOUS — A true Slytherin, Eva has many ambitions, some more rational than others.

    COMPETITIVE — Eva loves completing her goals and she hates losing to others, especially if she doesn't consider them worthy enough to be her opponents.

    MATERIALISTIC — Eva likes shiny things.

    PERFECTIONIST — When Eva does something, she strives for perfection. She tends to judge people who do a half-assed work.

    PROTECTIVE — While it may not seem like it, Eva is fiercely loyal and protective towards those close to her. Her sister Petra is the person she feels most protective to and she’d kill to protect her.

    PROUD — Eva has always been a really proud person. She refuses to use other's help and she was always proud of her Russian descent. Unlike other girls who come from other countries, Eva wouldn't feel shy to talk Russian in front of others and she always uses the opportunity to show that she knows Russian. Eva cannot stand people who lie about their nationality or blood status and believes that everyone should be proud of whatever life gives them.

    RESPONSIBLE — Eva would never start doing a task and give up  when the first difficulty arises. She keeps promises, even if she sometimes takes her time to complete them.

    STUBBORN — Eva tends to be a rather rigid person and she finds it hard to adapt to things that she dislikes.

    — Eva is an ENFJ.
    — Her patronus is a male peacock.
    — Eva’s boggart is her father, Ustinya and Ivan being happy without her and Petra.
    — Eva’s Amortentia smells like her favourite perfume and her face powder. A recent addition is Freddie's cologne/soap/yanno smell.
