    Modesty has long, wavy, dirty-blond hair and aqua blue eyes. She has semi-pale skin. She always wears a pendant that her father gave her (only taking it off to take a bath). She is right handed. She is 5'5" and would be perfectly content if she she didn't grow anymore in height.

    1871 Modesty is born as the seventh child of Noble Beechworth;  fourth child to Malivia Beechworth
    1873 Amity is born as the eighth, and final, child of Noble; the fifth, and final, child of Milivia
    1876 first sign of magic
    1882 Modesty is accepted into Hogwarts. She’s sorted into Slytherin. Within the first month she’s joined the Dueling Club and Art Club. By November she’s also joined the Exploding Snap Club.
    1883 She decides she wants to join more clubs, but as her Second year has just has started she refrains from doing so and stays in the three she joined the previous year . By December she’s also joined Charms and Book Club.
    1884Mid-April she starts to feel the toll of being in five different clubs but stubbornly stays in the clubs she’s signed up for.  She learns to juggle the different clubs she’s in and For her electives she chooses: Ancient Runes, Earth Magic, and Care of Magical Creatures.
    1885 Her third year proves to be difficult and she reluctantly drops Book Club. Her fourth year, somehow, feels more difficult than her third and she drops Exploding Snap.
    1886 In January, she feels bored and under worked at not being in any athletic clubs. She wants to join a sport one, and barely stops herself from joining more and a sports one (she tells herself she'd have to drop another one--- she can handle handle three, but she can no longer juggle, four or five.) She hopes to keep her grades good enough to be a prefect in her fifth year.

    Headstrong | Rough | Tomboy | Athletic | Pushes herself (and others) to do things they didn’t think they could | Loves Quidditch | Likes to break things | Doesn’t like following rules | Likes trying new things | Party Animal | Loyal | Optimistic | Easily makes new friends | Troublemaker | Social Butterfly | Impulsive

    Sample Roleplay Post:
    Modesty was bored. The Dueling Club was her favorite part of the week-- and she hadn't been able to attend because she waited until her homework was due to actually do her homework. She couldn't focus on the work she was supposed to be doing. She wanted to be dueling, getting better at what she loved. Her wand probably liked dueling too-- all the hexes and curses that were thrown around probably made it extremely happy (it was made from Banshee hair, after all).

    She should probably not get so into the tournaments, but it was just to much fun. She liked the rush she felt when she won. It was better than getting top grades! Being surrounded by friends and being able to fight was more important than some stupid assignment!
