    Fortuna Lockhart
    In Character
    Full Name: Fortuna Mercy Lockhart
    Nicknames: Tuni
    Birthdate: June 9, 1866
    Current Age: 20
    Occupation: Department of Mysteries Secretary
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Bartonburg
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: Cherry, 8”, supple, unicorn tail
    Blood Status: Half
    Social Class: Middle
    Prosper Lockhart father [1835]
    --- Lockhart neé --- mother [1847-1870]
    --- Lockhart neé --- stepmother [18--]
    Magnus Lockhart brother [1862]
    -and family
    Merritt Lockhart brother [1870]
    Appearance: Fortuna has grown into quite the attractive woman. Her hair is a light brown and falls nearly pin straight down her back. It is always found up in some way or another, however, with few adornments to keep her style rather simple. Her clothing isn’t always in the height of fashion though she surely tries to be as fashionable as she can, when she can. Her eyes are perhaps her most defining feature, a very pale blue that contrasts quite beautifully with her darker hair. She can often be seen smiling and rarely seems to frown. She's not quite of average height and on the shorter spectrum of women but could never be considered a dwarf at an even five feet. She’s predominantly right handed but is able to use her left if needed.
    1866: Fortuna Mercy is born, the second Lockhart child and only daughter.
    1870: The final Lockhart child is born after being delivered cesarean upon their mother’s death. Fortuna is quite confused by it all, not understanding why they ended up with a baby and her mother gone. Regardless, the four year old dotes on the baby boy as much as she’ll be allowed, oblivious to her brother’s confusion of it.
    1873: Magnus leaves for school and Tuni feels heartbreak for the first time. At least she has Merritt still to smother with love and attention.
    1877: Tuni gets to leave for Hogwarts! She couldn’t be happier though is a bit guilty that Merritt will be left behind all on his own. The guilt is pretty quickly forgotten. She can hardly contain her excitement on her way to school and almost bounces up to the Sorting Hat when it is her turn. She sits under the hat for what feels like an eternity before being sorted into Ravenclaw. She’s only able to feel disappointed for a small time over not being sorted into Magnus’s house before her new classmates greet her and surround her in what she can only describe as love.
    1879: Tuni adds Ancient Studies and Ancient Runes to her schedule.
    1880: Lock graduates. His leaving is a bit more tolerable this time as Tuni has managed to build her own friendships and is actually a quite happy young woman.
    1881: Tuni follows in her brother’s footsteps and is named prefect. Merritt joins her at Hogwarts! It’s an overall rather exciting year.
    1882: Tuni sits her OWLs and does rather well all across the board making it hard to decide which classes to drop. She eventually decides on dropping Astronomy and Herbology.
    1883: Her father ends up married thanks to the Amortentia debacle. Tuni really isn’t quite sure what to think of it, especially since her new stepmother seems to be so close to her in age. It definitely makes for rather interesting family dinners, specifically during the Hogsmeade trip following Prosper’s marriage. With the whole family there to meet their new stepmother, Lock brings a young woman with him and announces that they had been married thanks to the Amortentia as well. The dinner doesn’t end well, especially when it’s learned the woman with Lock isn’t actually his wife. Lock goes on to marry her the end of August.
    1884: NEWTs come and Tuni pulls out remarkable scores once again. Graduation comes and goes as well as the Hogwarts COB. Tuni has a marvelous time but any of the gentleman who dance were her are never heard from again despite good conversations. It’s confusing at first but she doesn’t give it much thought, knowing she has a full summer ahead of her. Lock and Rue have their first child, a daughter named Margery.
    1885: Lock and Rue have another child, a son named Calvin.
    1886: Still very much without any prospects, Tuni is now very well aware as to why. ANy gentleman who seems to turn their attentions her way are quickly scared off by her dwarf father or giant brother. As frustrated as can possibly be, she decides to take a job and begins working as a secretary for the Department of Mysteries after the summer season is over. She also secretly begins corresponding with gentlemen through mail with the help of old school friends.
    Personality: Quiet. Poised. Perfectionist. Kind. Generous. Patient. Determined. Sheltered
