     *1871-She was born and at the time lived in London
    *1872-Her little sister was born.
    *1874-Her second sister was born.
     *1876-Her little brother was born. Later that year, her mother left them, because one night while they were fighting, Acacia's mother almost killed her father on accident, and she felt it was safer for both him and Acacia if she left
     *1877-As the wizarding families were exiled, her farther and her moved to Hogsmeade, to her protest, since she was only six she didn't fully understand why they had to move in the first place
     *1878-Her father divorced her mother due to her deserting them
     *1882-She got her letter for Hogwarts
     *1884-Her father had first started suggesting an arranged marriage, worried that she wouldn't find a husband because she was half vampire
    Sample Roleplay Post:
      *This was when Acacia and her father preparing to leave London and move to Hogsmeade*
    Acacia watched as her father packed her belongings quickly. "Why must we leave father? I like it here." She said.
    He turned to her and sighed. "We must leave darling, I'll explain when you are older." He said. He turned back to her stuff and continued packing.
    "Is this about mummy? Are we going to see her?" She asked, still confused as to why her mother didn't come home anymore.
    He froze, stopping what he was doing completely. He was always like that when anyone mentioned his wife. He rubbed his face, forcing himself to calm down. He turned to look at her again, walking over. He gently picked her up. "No darling, this isn't about mummy. I'm sorry, but we won't be seeing her again, as I have already told you." He said.
    She tilted her head, growing more curious. "Why won't we see her again?" She asked.
    "I have already told you that I'll explain when you are older." He said.
    She pouted. "But I want to know now." She complained.
    He shook his head, a little smile on his lips. "Such a stubborn girl, you'll get yourself into trouble." He said, smoothing her hair back.
    She smiled and giggled. She loved to get her father to smile, since he hasn't smiled much since her mother left.

    A friend, though we're fighting right now so I really don't want to mention her too much if that's OK, it has nothing to do with this.
