    Sister, ______ Kaylock - 1867-1880.

    Appearance: A small girl, she has always looked a few years younger than she actually helps, and her short stature of just shy of five foot makes her seem even younger than her face does and her weight is small only to match at roughly ninety six pounds. Dark brown eyes are framed by hair only a few shades darker, both easily appearing black in the different lighting. Wand held in her right hand she is a girl who tends to wear simple, homemade clothes, though they do tend to have very elaborate stitching from her time training as a seamstress.
    History: 
    Quote:1864
    The first daughter is born to the Kaylocks, a small, undersized child by the name of Perenia Charity. From first glance, she doesn't appear as if she had much time to live, having been born early though her life is saved by the use of magic.
    1866
    Her brother shows his first signs of magic and everyone is happy though his dreams seem to be crushed slightly when he is told they can not afford to send any of their children off and that he must start work soon in a shop or something.
    1867
    Her younger sister is born in a slightly better state than Perenia.
    1872
    The first signs of magic from the young girl, late, but there as she was helping her mother clean at their work when she was teased by a few upper class girls her age, causing their hair to turn green. However as she had no wand, no blame could be rightfully placed on her and her reputation remained. Her brother also received his letter this year, however, they could not afford tuition still and he did not go, instead received an apprenticeship at a nearby wizarding store.
    1876
    Having worked away from her mother at a seamstress shop for a few years, when she receives her letter to Hogwarts it comes with a scholarship paid for by the owner of the shop. She wanted her girls to be to some degree educated and part of the job was school fees being paid until their graduation [it made her look better, honestly]. Therefore, she was allowed to attend Hogwarts, making the relations between herself and her siblings very uneasy.
    1878
    Relations between Perenia and her sister grow ever tenser as no letter ever came for her sister, officiating that her sister had somehow been born a squib even with many many generations of pureblooded wizardry.
    1880
    Halfway through her fourth year, Perenia was forced to withdraw and come home when her younger sister was killed in an accident in the potions shop she worked in cleaning. Her mother need help at home and a higher income than Perenia made- the one mostly dedicated to her school funds. Perenia was forced to leave her job and find a new one as a maid to a widowed middle-class lady with no other relatives.
    1883
    Perenia worked under the middle-class lady until her death early in the year in which she was forced to find a new job, of which she found under the Dippit household.

    Personality: blunt. analtical. social. observant. distant.
