    Keavy O'Fannon
    In Character
    Full Name: Keavy Aileen O’Fannon
    Nicknames: K
    Birthdate: January 13, 1861
    Current Age: 25
    Occupation: Midwife
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Slums of Hogsmeade
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: Holly, 8", Supple, Unicorn Tail
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Lower
    Donan O’Fannon, father, b.1825
    Biddy O’Fannon neé Quigley, mother, b.1831
    Keefe O’Fannon, brother, b.1848
    -Audrina O’Fannon neé Forest, sister in law, 1864
    Kelly O’Fannon, brother, 1854
    Appearance: Keavy is quite the pretty young woman but could never be mistaken for a lady. Her clothes are never in the finest of garb and often have many patched bits and pieces and she often has a bloody apron one. Her hair is long and dark but typically pulled back in the simplest of braids. Random strands of stray hair often frame her face thanks to her hard and rigorous work. She is taller than average at five foot five and, while rather slender, quite muscular. With slightly more tanned skin than expected of a woman and calloused, rough hands, there is no doubt she has lived a working life. She deems her brown hair and eyes to be rather plain but she does have one distinguishing mark by way of a beauty mark above her lip on the right side. She’s quite adept at using both hands as being a midwife requires keeping on one’s toes but she prefers her right.
    1861: Keavy is born. The only daughter to Donan and Biddy and quite the boisterous one from the get go.
    1864: Keefe takes a job and doesn’t end up quitting it by summer’s end so doesn’t go back to school.
    1865: Kelly goes off to Hogwarts.
    1867: Keavy shows her first signs of magic by causing a baby carriage to vibrate when the baby within starts to cry.
    1870: While visiting friends/family in the countryside, Keavy witnesses the miracle of birth in the stalls of the stables when a mare gives birth to her foal. Though not something a young woman should typically witness, Keavy is quite enraptured by it.
    1872: Though she does indeed receive a letter to Hogwarts, she opts to not go and stress the family’s finances. Having always found birth fascinating, she asks their neighbor, a midwife named Miriam, if she could apprentice under her and learn the ways of a midwife. Her brothers and midwife help to teach her some magic basics with a passed down wand.
    1877: Keavy progresses quite well in her midwife training under her teacher. She teaches Keavy basic spells that pertain to helping with childbearing. When the uprising against wizards begins, Keavy leaves with Miriam to Hogsmeade. They find a small two bedroom hut in the Slums to call their own. They quickly become known for their midwifery skills.
    1880: Miriam succumbs to a nasty bout of pneumonia, leaving Keavy alone in the slums. The loss of her mentor is quite devastating but she knows she must continue on.
    1886: Keavy is quite well known as a midwife with great success. She lives quite happily content in her little hut in the slums alone and doing what she can for the slummers that can’t afford real doctors to see to their needs through a pregnancy. She’s even been called upon by some of higher classes to assist at times. She gladly accepts but not without a cost.
    Personality: Strong. Independent. Intelligent. Stubborn. Opinionated. Vocal.
