    Tessa Grey
    In Character
    Full Name: Tessa Waverly Grey
    Nicknames: Tessie
    Birthdate: November 22, 1865
    Current Age: 20
    Occupation:  Debtante
    Reputation: [Appropriate number 1-5. 5
    Residence: [Where do they currently live?] London, England
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand:Cherry, Unicorn Tail, 10 inches
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Upper
    Family: [Optional.]
    Appearance: Tessa has blue eyes  and blonde hair. She is 5'3 and she holds her wand in her right hand. Tessa likes to find the beauty in others. Even though she has been told that she is a natural beauty, she likes to think that it is what inside is what counts. Tessa likes to play with colors in her dresses. Her favorite one is a teal. Corsets was one thing that she didn't like. And it was because she couldn't breath. Hats where a way to dress up any outfit. And Tessa always made sure that she looked her best.

    History: Tessa was born to Mrs and Mr Grey. She was the apple of her parents eyes. One thing was that she came from a large family. Tessa was the youngest of five. She was the only girl out of the five. Having older brothers was something that she used to. Tessa was very close to her nanny, and it was because she raised her from newborn. And it was because she only spent a few hours in the afternoon with her parents. But as she got older she had more a relationship with her parents.

    When she was ten she started to show signs that her magic was showing. Her parents where so proud of her. When she was eleven she received her letter to Hogwarts. Going to school made her nervous but she was ready for her new adventure. Hogwarts was something that she had been looking forward to for a long time. Tessa knew about the sorting hat from stories from her brothers. She was nervous when she had her sorting ceremony. That is when she found out that she belonged in Gryffindor.  When she was there she made sure that her grades where the best. Which meant a lot of studying. But that didn't mean that she didn't socialize with others. Because she had standards and always being a proper lady.

    After she had left Hogwarts, she was expected to help her mother. That meant playing part in the charities that her mother was part of. But she knew she was expected to marry a pureblood from an upper class family. And to start a family of her own one day.
    Personality: [Optional.]
    Sample Roleplay Post: Ariella knew that school was starting again. Because she didn't have to go through all of the shopping for school. And she was glad that she had graduated from Beauxbatons. It was where her father went to school. 

    There was times that she would think about when she was still that age. And their was sometimes that she missed it. But she wouldn't want to make the same mistakes twice. Now she was looking forward to her future. And she was trying to become a famous actress. But she had some free time on her hands and was exploring. 

    Right now she was having the time of her life.

    She had found herself in Azorat; and she was in the black market. This was the place that you could find anything that you needed. But right now she was just looking around. It didn't hurt to know where you could find what you needed. Looking around she had seen vampires selling blood. She knew the war that was going on. And that was why she took a neutral side to it.

    Things were different from when her father was her age. It seemed like the world was always changing. But Ariella knew that she had to somehow face it. 

    But she couldn't help but to admire what was here. And it was because it was a place where creatures could be themselves. Creating different version of blood was interesting. Thinking about all the science behind it made Ariella think about it more. It made her wonder what she could invent for vampire blood. But there was a part of her that didn't want to take sides.

    Ariella knew that she would stand out of a crowd. She knew that different creatures would come here. And she was a full human, or a pureblood to other wizards and witches. But that wasn't going to stop her from doing what she wanted. Ariella was enjoying this little exploring trip. And she wished that she did it more often.

    She couldn't help but wonder to vender where someone was talking about vampire root. This was something new and curious. And she knew one day that this would get the better of her. But she wasn't sure how to find out more. Ariella wasn't sure how to approach this one.

    But the only way she could find out more was to listen to the man that was asking about vampire root. She didn't want to feel like she was interrupting. But she was curious.
