    November 1887
    Lisa Fairbairn
    In Character
    Full Name: Lisa Cara Fairbairn
    Nicknames: None
    Birthdate: November 18, 1684
    Current Age: 202
    Race: Vampire
    Occupation: None
    Reputation: 2
    Residence: the Vampire Caverns
    Social Class: Lower
      Ex-Husband: Martin Ruskin
      Daughter: Acacia Ruskin
    Daughter: Chrysanta Ruskin
    Daughter: Orinda Ruskin
      Son: Dunstan Ruskin
    Appearance: She's 5'3", really thin, and left handed. She has very pale skin, dark shadows under her eyes and sharp teeth. She has light blue eyes like her daughter, but with blonde hair. She normally wears simple light green dresses.
    *1684- Lisa was born to a Middle Class family (as a muggle)
    *1702- She married a Pureblood wizard
    *1704- Her husband died in a fire
    *1707- She got a job as a shopkeeper for a small bookstore
    *1713- Her family was attacked by a vampire, and she would have died along with them if the vampire hadn't been interrupted by a concerned neighbor. The vampire was later killed by other vampires because he had been killing too many people, too often in the town.
    *1869- Lisa had met Martin Ruskin and they had fallen in love
    *1870- They got married, much to every ones disapproval, and she moved to his home in London
    *1871- She gave birth to Acacia
    *1872-She had her second child, Chrysanta.
    *1874-Her third child and third daughter, Orinda, was born.
    *1876- Lisa gave birth to Dunstan. She left them, because one night while they were fighting, she almost killed Martin on accident, and she felt it was safer for both him and Acacia if she left
    *1879- After traveling for a while, she decided to stay in the Vampire Caverns
    *1881- Lisa tried to visit their old home, hoping to see her daughter and ex-husband, and possibly ask for forgiveness. Instead she found a muggle couple living their. In a fit of rage she killed them
    *1884- She started trying to get a job again at several stores, but failed miserably
    *1886- She re-enters Hogsmead, trying to stay in practice with being around humans, when she hears two people gossiping about a half vampire, and she starts to regain hope that she'll see her daughter again at least.
    Personality: She had been kind and sweet, but after she left her husband and daughter she started to become cruel and cold. She only shows her kind side to very few people, which are only vampires for now. She's stubborn, which is something she had in common with Martin, and Acacia.
    Sample Roleplay Post: Lisa watched her little daughter, Acacia, as she ran around and tried to catch a firefly. "Acacia, darling, be careful." She called over. They were at a park, alone. It had started to rain lightly, but Lisa didn't mind, she liked the rain, it calmed her.
    Acacia was getting a little too far for Lisa's comfort and Lisa got up. "Sweetheart, come back here." She said, heading over.
    Acacia didn't listen, running around more, and as her mother grew closer, she climbed a tree, though she wasn't very good at it, almost falling twice.
    Lisa looked up worriedly. "Acacia, come down, now." She ordered.
    Acacia had successfully gotten to a branch and was giggling.
    Lisa sighed and climbed up. She grabbed Acacia and jumped down easily. "I said to get down. No candy for you young lady." She said.
    Acacia whined. "Mummy!!" She complained.
    "Well, if you don't like it then you should have listened." Lisa said.
