    Appearance:
    Hope stands at four feet, ten inches and has an average build for a girl of sixteen. Her hair is blonde and she has blue eyes. Hope dresses in a very feminine manner and favors lighter colors. She is right handed.
    History:
    1870: Hope is born.
    1876: Hope shows her first signs of magic when she makes flowers dance around her in her familys garden.
    1877: The debacle with muggles finding out about magic finds the Crawford's moving to the newly established village of Hogsmeade.
    1881: Hope goes off to Hogwarts. She is a hatstall between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor but she is ultimately placed into the house of the Lions. She is quite excited to start her education at Hogwarts and especially takes a fondness to Herbology. In March, however, things get terrifying when Hogwarts goes into lockdown due to the missing muggleborn students. What an experience to have in ones first year of education! It is quite disheartening when the news later comes that the culprit all along was the Minister of Magic himself.
    1883: For her electives, Hope selects Arithmancy, Earth Magic, and Muggle Studies.
    1884: The carnival arrives in town much to Hope's delight. She finds it all to be great fun. Or at least she did until the deaths and illnesses began. Hope and her family are stuck within the quarantine and Hope is quite frightened by the entire ordeal. To top things off, there is also a fire in Wellingtonshire. The Crawford home manages to not be effected. The Crawford family provides shelter for neighbors that weren't so lucky. In September, the Pan-Magical games being announced is a welcome distraction from how terrible the year has been so far.
    1885: Hope greatly enjoys the Pan-Magical games as a spectator. The years ends on a frightening note when the school is put into lockdown.
    1886: Hope sits for her OWLs and gets the following scores:
    Arithmancy - Acceptable
    Astronomy - Exceeds Expectations
    Charms - Outstanding
    Defence Against the Dark Arts - Outstanding
    Earth Magic - Outstanding
    Herbology - Outstanding
    History of Magic - Acceptable
    Muggle Studies - Exceeds Expectations
    Potions - Exceeds Expectations
    Transfiguration - Outstanding

    Hope continues on with Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Earth Magic, Herbology, Muggle Studies, Potions and Transfiguration.
