    Annabelle, Cat
    Standing at four feet, seven inches tall, Cammie is above average height for a boy his age. He has a slender build with longer limbs and a shorter torso. His hair is a fair blonde color, and his eyes are blue. He dresses in average muggle clothes for a boy his age. He is left-handed.
    1875 | Cammie is born the fourth child to Martin and Annie Gillenwater, but is the third surviving one at the time of his birth. This changes later in the year when his older sister Rose dies of pneumonia.

    1877 | A younger brother is born! Mother names his Christopher, but father said he would have rather named him Christian.

    1878 | Tragedy strikes the family once again when Cammie's father passes away from tuberculosis. Cammie doesn't yet understand why his mother dresses in black from head to toe and often looks distraught.

    1882 | Two years after mother leaves mourning, she marries Alexander Faulkner, a physician, for the sake of her children. Cammie gains an older step-sister named Harmony who often looks down to him. Later in the year, Cammie's younger brother dies after succumbing to an injury.

    1883 | Mother and her new husband have a baby boy named Xavier.

    1884 | After witnessing a child in the neighborhood picking on his older sister, something strange happens that leaves Cammie in fear. The child seems to be lifted off the ground for a moment before being slammed back down. Cammie and his sister run home, frightened by the incident. It turns out that it's Cammie's first sign of magic, but no one—including himself—understands that.

    1886 | Mother and Alexander have a daughter named Grace.
    POLITE | One of Cammie's biggest fears is offending people or causing hurt feelings. He's a true young gentleman, always thanking others for helping him and going out of his way to make sure everyone knows their actions and kind words are appreciated and remembered.

    STRONG-WILLED | While he does respect other people's opinions, he does not care for other people talking down to him because he believes in something different than him. While he does want to make sure everyone's happy, he will not bend to their every desire if it goes against his values and beliefs—especially if they are being rude.

    COURAGEOUS | While he would never consider himself brave, he does have the tendency to stand up for himself and others when someone—usually of a status higher than himself—attempts to belittle him or those around him. He's also usually the student and friend who was pick up the snake that's slithering around the room, completely unafraid, and remove it from the area (if that really counts).

    STUDIOUS & HARDWORKING | While Cammie often has to try to get good grades, that doesn't stop him from seeking knowledge. Unlike many children who dislike the subjects they have difficulties in, Cammie enjoys trying to conquer the challenge of understanding subject matter and thoroughly enjoys using his brain.

    CAUTIOUS | While Cammie could be considered brave, that bravery doesn't extend to mischief-making and recklessness. He's very careful with every decision and move he makes and fears getting in trouble.

    DREAMER & AMBITIOUS | Born into an average middle class family, Cammie has never not been comfortable but knows that he could be more comfortable. He dreams of making it big and making a name for himself in the world. His brain is often filled with unexplored ideas and endless possibilities; he fancies the idea that he could be an inventor one day, or at least accumulate resources to test his ideas.

    OUTGOING & UNPREJUDICED | Cammie loves making friends, even with people who look like they don't want to be friends. Because of his unprejudiced nature, he doesn't have any qualms against befriending people of either gender and all classes—blood will be included once he discovers magic and its prejudices.
