    Alé Salcedo
    #1
    Full Name: Alé Salcedo
    Nicknames: None
    Birthdate: July 12, 1859
    Current Age: 27
    Occupation: Hogwarts Librarian
    Reputation: 4
    Residence: Hogwarts
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin

    Wand: 8 and a Half inches, Poplar, Dragon Heartstring Core
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Middle
    Family: None
    Appearance: Alé is left-handed. Her skin is an earthy brown with copper undertones. She's 5'3", and moves smoothly. Her hair is black and kept up at all times, usually in a braided fashion. She wears primarily robes, as she feels uncomfortable in traditional women's garb. In her private chambers, she wears colorful shawls and slippers, which remind her of home. She has small, strong hands, but the rest of her gives the impression that she could dissolve into the shadows right then and there. Her eyes are nearly black, and she has a button nose and full lips.

    History: Alé's birth killed her mother, and her father died soon after of grief. As a result, Alé was raised by her grandmother, who moved to be with Alé in a small town in Northern Ireland. When Alé was 11, her grandmother shipped her off to Hogwarts for a 'proper magical education'. Alé arrived  well educated but with lacking english skills. She was sorted into Slytherin and passed through Hogwarts with decent grades.

    Near the end of her 7th year, Alé's grandmother fell ill. Alé stayed long enough to graduate before rushing home to care for her only remaining family. Alé worked as a laundry maid while caring for her grandmother. Alé's grandmother passed away three years later. With no one left, Alé moved back to Hogsmeade and got work as a bookkeeper for a book store. She had enough wealth to be allowed into the middle class and made a point not to mention her origins in such a small town. When the latest Hogwarts Librarian left, Alé applied to take her position.

    Personality: Alé is quiet and reserved, even for a Victorian woman. She still speaks with an accent, since she never made an effort to get rid of it. It's something to remember her grandmother by. Alé is patient and kind, but in a cold, distant manner. She doesn't get close to people, which is why she's wound up a spinster

    Sample Roleplay Post:

    Elena was silent while she worked through her thoughts. This was... a turn of events, to say the least. She wondered if Feliz realized he'd revealed both his werewolf status and Ivy's vampire heritage to a practical stranger.

    "Well," she began. "A, a marriage contracts are stupid patriarchal bullshit so on that basis alone I am willing to spend most of my free time trying to break that betrothal the same way I broke the arm of the last boy who touched my ass. Secondly, who gives a shit if you're 'supposed' to get along," here she added finger quotes, "as long as you do. Three, I think that right now, if you really care about Ivy," she paused. "I think you need to work on yourselves before you try to be together."

    Elena gave Felix's knee a squeeze. "If I'm being honest, I think you both have some things you need to work through. Ivy needs to get out of this betrothal, and you have some self-confidence to work on." Elena could be brutally honest, but that was her way. "You guys can help each other, but this isn't a movie. Love isn't gonna fix everything. You have to put in some work."
