    Dove Alexandra Drummond
    I have a serious problem, such a serious problem, what am I even doing?

    In Character
    Full Name: Dove Alexandra Drummond nee Williams
    Nicknames: Little Dove, Red Dove, Sweet Dove
    Birthdate: September 2, 1856
    Current Age: 30 Years
    Occupation: Welcome Witch, Hogsmeade Hospital
    Reputation: 3
    Residence: Hogsmeade
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin

    • Byron Drummond (38, husband, WEREWOLF)
    • Stag Drummond (7, son)
    • Magpie Drummond (4, daughter)
    • Bear Drummond (2, son)
    Appearance: A taller than average woman at five feet six inches tall, with shocking red hair and bright blue eyes, Dove is willowy, the ideal for the era despite inability to afford the lovely frocks of the upper class. With one corset, and a wardrobe of exactly five leisure dresses and two work uniforms, the lower-class woman makes sure to bathe regularly, keeping her bright hair lustrous.
    • Born, 1856
    • Brother born, 1860
    • First sign of magic (ignited a fire in the living room), 1863

    • Starts working at St. Mungo's, 1873
    • Nightingale marries middle-class, Dove is maid of honor, 1874
    • Dove marries Byron, Nightingale is matron of honor, 1876

    • *Byron divulges he is a werewolf, 1880
    • Magpie is born, 1882
    • Bear is born, 1884

    • *Dove's reaction is not the best - the couple gets into a massive, loud argument, overheard by one of their neighbors. As Dove screams the word repeatedly, at the top of her lungs, the rumor mill starts flying, and it is finally explained to Dove just why her husband would disappear three nights a month. She feels stupid for not seeing it earlier, and the argument changes topics from his lycanthropy to her intelligence. But the gossip has been done, and when, the next full moon after the argument, the neighbors saw Byron slipping off, it was confirmed.
