    Molly Rook
    #1
    Full Name: Molly Alice Rook
    Nicknames: -- 
    Birthdate: May 1, 1864
    Current Age: 22 years
    Occupation: Secretary of the Dragon Research and Restraint Bureau
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Hogsmeade, Pennyworth
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw 
    Wand: Alder, unicorn tail hair, 11”, swishy
    Blood Status: Halfblood 
    Social Class: Lower 
    Family: 


    Quote:Mason Rook (b. 1823, former auror)
    Amelia Rook née Reilly (b. 1834, former secretary)
    Caspian Rook (b. 1859, Ministry worker)
    Trystan Rook (b. 1861, draconologist)
    Abigail Rook (b. 1863, married and moved to America)

    Appearance: An exceedingly petite woman, Molly stands at 4’10 with a thin frame. Despite this, she carries herself with confidence in hopes of making herself seem taller and more noticeable. Her hair is a long and wavy sandy blonde and is normally tied back in a braid. Dark eyes always express her natural inquisitiveness. She dresses modestly, preferring clothing in various shades of pink and red if she can afford them and is never seen outside without a hat or in anything that is obviously tattered. She is right-handed.
     
    History:

     
    May 1, 1865 | Molly is born as the fourth child of Mason and Amelia Rook in London.
     
    1869 | The first signs of magic are shown when a bored Molly opens the back door and windows of the family home in the middle of the night to let in a stray cat.
     
    1876 | During the summer, Molly receives her Hogwarts letter. Although her family is a little strapped for money with four children currently going to school, enough is budgeted to send Molly in the fall. She is sorted into Ravenclaw and finds that she especially likes being in class and around other people. Although she struggles in some classes, she manages to make good enough grades to at least earn a partial scholarship over the next several years while her older siblings are still in school too.
     
    1878 | While Molly has always had an obsession with small animals of the magical and nonmagical kinds alike, she finds her niche with the Care of Magical Creatures class. Although only in third year, she knows that she wants to do something in the field of magizoology!
     
    1880 | Fifth year sees Molly’s sister, Abigail, dropping out of school in order to marry an American wizard and leave the country. As she was extremely close to her sister, who was also a Ravenclaw and often helped her study, Molly is a little lost without her. A few of her grades suffer as a result.

    O.W.L. scores are as follows:
    Quote:Astronomy … P
    Care of Magical Creatures … O
    Charms … E
    Defense Against the Dark Arts … A
    Herbology … A
    History of Magic … P
    Potions … D
    Transfiguration … E

    Despite her mother’s suggestion to quit schooling after her fifth year in order to find a suitor, Molly decided to continue with her father’s and brother’s support.
     
    1883 | Still wanting a career in magizoology, Molly works hard to learn everything that she can during her final year in order to prepare her for life after school.

    N.E.W.T. scores are as follow:
    Quote:Care of Magical Creatures … O
    Charms … E
    Herbology … E
    Transfigurations … E

    After graduation, she obtains a job as a Welcome Witch at Gringotts for a few months, although she immediately becomes bored and quits. Instead, she travels to Eastern Europe with her elder brother Trystan, who has since become a draconologist. Although the two struggle for funds, they greatly enjoy their work and do a lot of research which Trystan plans to compile into a book.
     
    1885 | Tragedy strikes and Trystan is seriously injured in an accident with an adolescent dragon. Although he does not die from his wound, the siblings must return home and Trystan suffers from a limp ever since. For a while, the pair live in their eldest brother Caspian’s home until it is decided that their parents wish to retire. Not wishing to be a burden on the family, Trystan obtains a job in a shop in Hogsmeade and Molly as the secretary of the Dragon Research Restraint Bureau in the Ministry of Magic. They move to a small, two bedroom home in Pennyworth. Trystan continues to compile their research into a book.
     
    1887 | While Molly still wishes to become a researcher in draconology or magizoology, she continues to work as a secretary in order to help her brother pay the bills. Her mother, meanwhile, is exceedingly afraid that her daughter will become a spinster and consistently tries to convince her to marry. It has not yet happened as Molly is more interested in proving herself in order to obtain another job in her field!
     

    Personality: Naturally cheery, Molly always seems to be happy about something. She is rarely without a smile on her face or a greeting on her lips, always prepared to speak with anyone, although she remains within the bounds of etiquette. While she belongs to the lower classes, she prides herself on being a proper young woman and demands a certain respect from those around her. While she loves people, her true loves are animals and she has a bad habit of collecting whatever she can reasonably afford, which currently consists of three cats and a niffler. Molly is ambitious and hardworking, with dreams of becoming a dragon researcher or a magizoologist, although she sometimes puts off taking risks in order to ensure that she and her brother continue to have a place to live. Secretly she is a hopeless romantic and is an avid reader of novels and Witch Weekly.
