    Alora Bennet
    In Character

    [Image: jodelle14.jpg]

    Full Name: Alora Cécile Bennet

    Nicknames: N/A

    Birthdate: February, 12th, 1874

    Current Age: 12

    Occupation: First Year

    Reputation: 5

    Residence: Hogsmeade

    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff

    Wand: Cypress, 11 1/2", Slightly Yielding, Unicorn Hair (Did Pottermore test)

    Blood Status: Pure

    Social Class: Upper

    Family: Damen Marquis Bennet (Father, 36), Sarah Fleur Beaumont-Bennet (Mother, 32) Claire Elise Bennet (Sister, 8), Céleste Léonie Bennet (Sister, 8) (The two sisters are identical twins.)

    Appearance: She stands at 4'3, and weighs 69 pounds. Her hair is long, think and black as pitch, often held in a single braid over her right shoulder, her bangs often obscuring her eyes. When one does catch a glimpse of them, her eyes are a sharp, ocean blue. She has a soft, kind face. She tends to wear light dresses when not in school  robes. 

    History: She was born in Marseille, France in 1874, she spent most of her early years around both wizards and muggles. Her twin sisters were born in 1878, when she was four years old. Having met people from all over the world she knows much more about muggles then the average witch or wizard. She grew up with a warm and carefree attitude, and made many friends, some who lived there, and many more who had come for a summer. When she was nine years old she and her parents moved to Hogsmeade, her father soon hiring on with the British Ministry as a Muggle Liaison Officer, quitting a similar job from the French Ministry. He never explained to her why they had moved, but she had heard some odd rumors about her mother before they moved. Since they had moved to Scotland, and her parents were of the upper class, and her father was a member of the ministry, on her 11th birthday an owl had arrived at their home, bearing an invitation to attend Hogwarts. She has endeavored to make as many friends as possible during most of her first year, regardless of blood or class. As well as to study hard so as to make her Mère and Père proud.
    (Please note, her interactions in France were, firstly, before her magic bloomed, and secondly under her father's watchful eye. Insuring that while she would learn from them, that she would not let anything slip. She was carefully taught what NOT to say around muggles.)

    Personality: Alora is kind and carefree, always trying to make people smile and laugh. And being adorable beyond all reason, it is easy to do! She is not afraid to hug a total stranger if she thinks they need one, and the more sad or alone someone seems, the more likely she will tackle hug them!

    Sample Roleplay Post: Alora could not believe it! She had seen the castle from across the Black Lake for a few years now, but now she was finally going to Hogwarts! She was shaking with excitement as the carriages moved along the path.She stuck her head out of the window to look around at the long train of identical carriages. She felt a furry face nuzzel her arm and looked back in at her tiny white kitten and pulled her up into her arms. With a smile she scratched it behind it's ears and looked around at the others who were in there with her.
