    Blythe M. Fairchild
    #1
    In Character
    Full Name: Blythe Mayfield Fairchild
    Nicknames: --
    Birthdate: October 12th, 1871
    Current Age: Fifteen
    Occupation: Fourth Year
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Irvingly
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: Hawthorne with a dittany stalk core, precisely ten inches and firm.
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Middle Class
    Family:
    Mayfield Fairchild, Father [1840]
    Henrietta Fairchild née Bulstrode, Mother [1852-1875]
    Adeline Fairchild, Sister [1868]

    Temperance Fairchild, Aunt [1845]
    Davinder Patil, ??? [1876]
    Isis, Simese Cat [1883]
    Appearance:
    As unremarkable in size and shape as she is in attitude, Blythe stands at a modest four feet and eleven inches of slight, almost bony frame. Her natural blonde locks have been died a deep brown by her aunt since before she began her time at Hogwarts; it’s never occurred to her to tell anyone that it’s not her natural colour. As her aunt insists on having her wear modest cuts and the colours of half-mourning regardless of the fact that no one has died recently, she favors her school robes much of the time. At least they are supposed to be black.

    She is left-handed, but has been well-trained to use only her right. As a result, her wandwork is lacking.
    History:
    1871 | Blythe is the second and ultimately final child born to Mayfield and Henrietta Fairchild. She joins existing sister Adeline in their Godric’s Hollow home.
    1875 | Her mother dies of sickness. Blythe’s first act of magic sees her console herself by briefly bringing one of her dolls to life. Adeline takes quite jealous, as she has yet to perform magic herself.
    1877 | Mayfield goes to India on business, leaving his daughters to the care of his devoutly religious sister. Blythe sees her father only three times in the decade to follow.
    1879 | Summer comes, but Adeline’s Hogwarts letter does not. Temperance forces the girls deep in to prayer, as she believes squibs to be a punishment for a family’s sins. Mayfield returns home briefly in the autumn, but says little. Aunt Temperance also begins dying Blythe’s hair in an effort to distance her from her ‘wayward’ sister.
    1883 | Blythe bids a tearful farewell to her sister and departs for Hogwarts, where she is sorted into Slytherin. Her years in her aunt’s care have left her a shy girl, and she struggles to make friends.
    1884 | Mayfield returns home in June and departs with Adeline. When he returns three days later, it is without Blythe’s sister, and she is chastised whenever she questions the matter. She assumes that he has killed her. This does not do wonders for her self-confidence. Her father leaves just before Blythe returns to Hogwarts, though not before moving the family to Irvingly.  
    1885 | Now a third year, Blythe adds Divination and Ancient Runes to her course roster.
    1886 | Blythe begins her fourth year. In December, she spends her first Christmas with her father in ten years. He leaves behind a young Indian boy, called Davinder. Blythe is not entirely sure why, but knows better than to ask.
    Personality:
    PRIVATE — HARDWORKING — CAUTIOUS — TIMID — DETERMINED
