    Buttercup Alice Davenport
    In Character
    Full Name: Buttercup Alice Davenport
    Nicknames: [none]
    Birthdate: April 5, 1855
    Current Age: 31 years
    Occupation: Auror Training Program Instructor: Poisons & Antidotes
    Reputation: 4
    Residence: London
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: Acacia, 10 and one-half inches, unicorn hair, solid
    Blood Status: Pure
    Social Class: Middle (upper end)
    Appearance: Standing at an unassuming five feet, two inches, Buttercup Alice Davenport is often seen in unassuming dresses for a woman of her social standing, deep red hair bundled into a tight updo at the back of her skull, wand in her right hand and, more often than not, a potion vial poised in her left. She is ambidextrous, with a dominance preference towards her right in most things, save eating, brushing her hair, and throwing things. Her grey eyes are highly expressive, the irises actually darkening like thunderclouds when the woman is angered.
    1855: Born, first daughter of five, to Lewis and Alice Davenport. The pair has no sons.
    1862: Alice Davenport passes away due to labor complications with the youngest of the Davenport sisters, whom Lewis Davenport names Poppy Nightshade Davenport
    1863: Buttercup's first sign of magic, causing a rose to grow from her tears at her mother's grave.
    1865: Lewis Davenport remarries, to a woman named Emily.
    1866: Buttercup begins Hogwarts schooling, sorted into Slytherin house with only seventy-four seconds in total under the Sorting Hat.
    1871: In her fifth year, Buttercup sits for her OWLs. The subsequent grades give her only passing grades for Ancient Studies, Potions, Herbology, and Charms. She keeps only these four courses, dropping everything else, going into her NEWT years.
    1873: Buttercup takes her NEWTs, nailing only two Outstanding ranks, in Potions and Herbology. After schooling, her apprenticeship begins at her father's apothecary, learning more complex potions and how to identify the scents and subtleties of poisons.
    1874: Lewis Davenport falls ill, to a point where his hands shake far too much for him to continute his potions work, leading to Buttercup taking the reigns of the shop. She begins taking things to a greater level, actually providing completed potions to witches and wizards who don't have the greatest motor control, or private locations to brew their potions.
    1880: Lewis's condition improves, but not to the point of returning to the shop. Buttercup's first youngest sister joins her as an assistant in the shop, managing the front counter while Buttercup focuses on potions.
    1886: Around mid-February, Buttercup decided, on her own, to move on from the small shop, applying to the Ministry of Magic for a position in the Auror Training Program as an instructor, finding the field of identifying poisons and antidotes an ideal place for herself. Once the application process was complete, Buttercup began her career.
