    Amelia Scamander
    Full Name: Amelia Selena Scamander
    Nicknames: Lia, to ĥer siblings
    Birthdate: 14 August 1861
    Current Age: 25
    Occupation: Healer in the department of Potion and Magical Poisonings at Hogsmeade Hospital
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Hogsmeade
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor

    Wand: 9" Cherry, Unicorn Tail Horn
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Upperclass
    Family: Alexander Scamander, Father
    Annalise Scamander nee ---, Mother
    Eugene Ethelwin Scamander, Brother
    Hippolyta Scamander nee Argyle, Sister-in-law
    Appearance: Amelia stands exactly at 5’ 4”, and she if not above the occasional heel to make herself even taller. She is willowy at best and stick-like at worst, although her horse riding had given her muscle. Her skin is a light, pale pink, although she is usually tanned by her hours outside. She has freckles, to her mother’s horror, as well as wavy blonde hair. Her lips are plump and she loves the color of her hazel eyes. She is right-handed, and usually has her wand up her sleeve - literally. She enjoys the intimidation factor that comes with certain dress styles, and so often opts for dark colors - meant for a woman at least a decade older - and slim skirts, which while never scandalous, lend her an air of authority.
    History: Amelia was born in the summer of 1861. She always got along better with her older siblings than children her own age, and while her parents loved her, their jokes about wishing she'd been a boy always stung, just a little. She was brash as a child, often experiencing magical outbursts and getting into trouble. As a young girl, she hated dresses, although she came to appreciate the number of items that could be hidden in a skirt. It came as no surprise to anyone in her family when she was sorted into Gryffindor.  

    She sends lots of letters to Eugene, who she liked best when she was younger. When he goes off to America, her letters become rare and annoyed. She holds a grudge like no other. She has a short dalliance with a Ravenclaw girl in her sixth year, but the secrecy prove too stressful and they break off. She gets her OWL’s in Charms, Potions, Transfiguration, Herbology, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Care of Magical Creatures, Astronomy, and Muggle Studies. Her NEWTS are only in Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms, Potions, and Herbology. 

    When her final year comes, she faces her Coming Out ball with no small sense of dread. She knows she’ll have a few years before she has to marry, but she’s not sure she’ll ever want to. She moves in with Eugene and Polly and finds a job as a Trainee Healer at Hogsmeade Hospital. She’s since become a fully-fledged Healer. 

    At 25, Amelia is inching towards spinsterhood. Any attempt to introduce her to a suitor backfires spectacularly, as she’s perfected 

    the art of rebuffing advanced without damaging her social standing. She enjoys her work and while she’s been courted, no man has met her standards.

    Personality: Independent and feisty, Amelia commits herself wholeheartedly to her chosen pursuit. She has dedicated herself to healing, and connects deeply with her patients. She’s empathetic and refuses to take anything at face value. She loves her family and will protect them.
