    Heartwarming "Hattie" Whitledge (née ______) | Aunt | 1850 - 1887

    She has long brown hair that looks lighter depending on llighting. Her eyes are a dark brown. If she could get away with wearing dark colours all the time, she would. But she cant. So she goes for very loud, annoyingly bright, colours. She is right handed. She stands at a out 5'4".

    Prebirth Cheesecake was the fourth born of the new Whitledge generation. She would have been named Florence Whitledge, but Hattie bullied Ruth into following with the wacky names and so she got Cheesecake Batter as a result. Ruth probably just wanted her sister-in-law to stop bothering her about naming her children funky names. It was a last minute decision and Patrick probably had no say in it.

    Childhood (1870-1881) Being relatively close in age to her siblings and cousins, she grows up thinking their names are just regular every-day names, and that everyone else that had 'regular' names where the weird ones. One day she is informed that she and her siblings/cousins have the weird names and that everyone else has normal names compared to theirs (especially comapared to Handsome's). Up until that point, she had thought that the only really odd name was her youngest cousin's: Knight In Shinning Armor, which was a mouth full to say his full name-- and it was his first name, not even some of it was his middle name(s)

    Sometime after she turns seven, not long after she is informed of their odd names,  the rather large family (made of siblings and extended) relocate to Hogsmeade. She doesn't understand why they had to move, just that they where no longer safe and had to flee. She does not like having to leave what friends she had made with the Muggles or where she had lived for the previous seven years of her life. Even with Hogwarts right across the lake (she didn't think she'd see it before she actually went to the school), she has a hard time settling into their new home.

    At nine she has her first bout of accidental magic. She'd rather not ever talk about it and pretends like it didn't happen .
    By the time she turns eleven, she has sort-of-no-not-really accepted that they where most likely going to stay in Hogsmeade for an indefinite amount of time. She plans to move back home as soon as she can. That summer Cheesecake, Glitter, Cupcake, and Handsome, are all invited to attend Hogwarts.

    Hogwarts (1881-1886) All four of the Whitledges' start at Hogwarts and Cheesecake is the only one sorted into Slytherin upon arriving at Hogwarts. This is where her personality starts to evolve. She feels right at home in the house she was sorted into and easily makes friends outside her family (and even  her new house!). This year passes and she is pleased that there where no major hiccups.

    Over the course of the next few years, siblings and cousins come in every year (for the most part). The diversity in their personalities are real and that they all didn't end up in the same house (OK so most of them ended up in Gryffindor, but some did end up in other houses) renforcement that face. She added Arithmacy and Ancient Runes to her studies.

    There was a plauge, a fire, and the death of one of her uncles. But she is still recovering from almost dying so she doesn't go to the funeral and doesn't know that her Uncle's family moves until she goes to Hogwarts. 

    With the end of her fifth year comes the time to decide if she wants to continue her schooling at Hogwarts or go to Finishing School (she didn't really have any other choice. Becoming a Debutante at 16 was apparently out of the question, according to her mother).

    PostHogwarts (1886-Current) Cheesecake decides to not return to Hogwarts for her NEWT years and is enrolled in PSYR. She hears about the fun chaos going on at Hogwarts and wishes she hadn't decided against going back for another year  

    Rude. Obnoxious. Loud. Not good at taking people's bullshit.
