    Sophronia Isadora Van Helsing
    Updated September 20th, 2014.

    Full Name: Sophronia Isadora Van Helsing

    Nicknames: Roni by pretty much everyone

    Birthdate: July 5th, 1860

    Current Age: 24 years

    Occupation: Vampire Hunter

    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

    Wand: 10", Aspen, dragon heartstring, unmalleable

    Blood Status: Half

    Social Class: Upper

    Family: Abraham Van Helsing - Father

    Mina Van Helsing - Mother

    Sadie Van Helsing - Step mother

    Corrine Van Helsing, Artemis Van Helsing,
    Roxanne Van Helsing, Valentine Van Helsing, Persephone Van Helsing, Lavinia Van Helsing

    Via her aunt Marit, Sophronia has ten cousins. Most notable of these is her cousin Imogen.

    Appearance: Sophronia Van Helsing is 5'3", and petite, weighing around 110 pounds. She has shoulder-length blond hair and gray eyes, and she's right handed. When speaking, she either waves her hands around or folds them over her chest. She has a tendency to lean against things.

    History: 1860: Sophronia is born the first van Helsing daughter. She's a relatively quiet baby, but curious as soon as she can walk and prone to trying to spook people.
    1863: Roni is joined by Corinne Van Helsing, whom Sophronia takes an immediate interest in. She gains a lot of sisters - she makes a conscious effort to bond with all of them, but her favorite relative by far is her cousin Imogen.
    1867: At the age of six, Roni enters training for vampire hunting. She loves it and adapts well to it, reading massive books on the subject and playing with strategy. Having a sister join her is something Sophronia delights in, if only because it makes things more interesting. She likes watching the different ways people react to training, and the different ways they plan to hunt vampires.
    1871: In the summer before she enters Hogwarts, the Van Helsings go to America on vacation. Her mother and Valentine go to the theater one evening - Roni isn't interested because she's found a very good book to read - and Valentine returns alone. They were attacked by a vampire when they were out, and their mother is dead. Roni isn't really sure how to deal with the event emotionally, but does develop a strong hatred for vampires because of it.
    Once she's sent to Hogwarts Sophronia is sorted almost immediately into Ravenclaw.
    1873: She chooses Arthimancy and Ancient runes as her electives at the end of second year and excels in both of them.
    1876: She takes NEWT classes in Arithmancy, Ancient Runes, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms, and Astronomy, which are what she considers the most useful classes. She has her coming out ball at 15 and in the summer between fifth and sixth year kills a vampire for the first time.
    1878-1879: After graduating Sophronia inserts herself fully into life as a member of the Order of the Dawn, moving around Europe with her father.
    1880: Her father remarries. She despises the woman and doesn't mask it, and is more than happy to try and get rid of her. She also violently opposes Sadie's attempts to marry off the girls, primarily her sisters, but manages to put a stop to any attempts to betroth her.
    1881 : On Christmas, both Sadie and Artemis announce their pregnancies. Sophronia isn't particularly sure how to feel about either of these things, but has to admit that she'd rather Artemis spawn than Sadie.
    1882: Sadie miscarries and is never quite the same again. Artemis gives birth to a boy but putters off to the continent later that year with her boytoy and brother; publicly, Sophronia is no longer in contact with her sister. Sophronia goes on the Hogsmeade Trail.
    1883: Entirely accidentally, Sophronia sleeps with her best friend, Claudius Lestrange.
    Personality: A clever girl with a poor temper and a maternal streak, Sophronia is prone to making sarcastic quips and mixing up English idioms.
