    Occupation: Socialite and Devoted Mother
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: London
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: Holly, 18 inch, dragon heart string
    Blood Status: Half Blood
    Social Class: Upper
    Husband 1: Edward Guillefort - Halfblood - Deceased - Tuberculosis
    Husband 2:  Lord Philip Townsend - Muggle - Deceased - Old Age
    Edward Giullfort - 15 - Student -daughter
    Genevieve Townsend - 11 - Student  -daughter

    Appearance: Scartlett is one of those classic beautys of the period.  She has pale skin, an hour glass figure, with a small waist and an ample bosom.  She tends to wear  dark block colours mostly blue and red.  She has long pale blonde hair, which she usually wears piled on top of her head in heavy ringlets, to give her face a softer impression.  She wears little make up but her hair is always immaculatly styled.  She favours her left hand.

    * Scarlett was the youngest daughter of a large upper class family, a family barely clinging onto their upper class status.  

    * All of the children displayed magic in their turn and they all went to Hogwarts.  All money and effort was spent on the boys.  

    *Scarlett was in Gryffindor, and did well in all of her exams, gaining good OWLs and NEWTS.  

    * With so many girls the dowerys were small and the girls were told that they would need to make their way on their wits and looks. 3 girls became governesses to wealthy families, one married a man in America that she had never met just to marry, and 3 others remain spinsters.  Scarlett was pretty and ambitious, for 2 years prior to her coming out she had lavished attention on an unattrative, loutish, uncouth first born son of a welathy family.  A man with little charm, little grace and little prospect of making any other sort of match due his sickly constitution.  

    * Scarlett and Edward were married when she was 18

    *She gave birth to her son Edward jnr.

    *Edward snrs health began to decline from what his doctors claimed was TB

    *6 weeks after his passing, despite the affront to propriety she married Lord Philip Townsend, a muggle, claiming that it was what Edward wanted. She was his 3rd wife.  

    *7 Months later she gave birth to Genevieve, Scarlett insisted that Lord Townsend and not Edward was her father, and so she was given the Townsend name

    * Scarlett and her children lived with her new husband until his death from old age 4 years ago.  He was 86.

    * Scarlett is currently living on an allowance from her sons inheritance of his fathers estate and what little allowance is due to her as the Dowager Countess, the eldest son of Lord Townsend having been married already by the time she married his father.

    *She moved and set up her own home in London, living well but not as securely as she would like without  a husband.  

    Personality: Cunning, cynical, sharp witted and canny.  Little escapes her notice and she applies her intelligence to every task she sets herself to.  She is a survivor  but not without her redeeming qualities, she is a devoted mother and generally very maternal. She is kind and considerate as long as you do not threaten the security and happiness of her children.
