    #1
    In Character

    Current Age: 14
    Occupation: Student
    Residence: Elsewhere; London
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: Solid, 8½”, ivy and boggart skin Lost to a potions accident.
    Seneca now yields a family heirloom, the wand of Auguste le Strange: A long (13 inches) crooked wand made out of hawthorne that has thorns on its surface. In its core there is acromantula web. It suits Seneca well, but it does make her spells a bit more agressive.
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Upper Class
    Family:
    Lucius Lestrange, father (1827)
    Alexandria Lestrange nèe Rosier, mother (1839-1884)
    Claudius Lestrange, brother (1859)
    Valeria Greengrass née Lestrange, sister (1865)
    Cassius Lestrange, brother (1866)
    Cornelia "Tullia" Pendergast nèe Lestrange, sister (1870)

    Belphoebe Lestrange née Trimble, step-mother (1850)
    Cicero Lestrange, half-brother (1887)

    //Seneca is also related to various notable pureblooded families. First cousins include: The (Tybalt) Lestranges, The (Sebastian) Lestranges, The (Philip) Pendergasts; The Macnairs; The Selwyns.

    Messalina, pet
    Appearance:
    Seneca's appearance favours that of her late mother's, rather than her father's. Other than the similar facial shape and the distribution of her characteristics upon it, the most striking similarity to Alexandria is her blonde hair. Only her eyes aren't like her mother's - they're hazel, like her father's. She uses her right hand to write and yield her wand. At present, she stands at five feet four.

    It should also be noted that Seneca is a metamorphmagus, though she rarely does any dramatic changes to her appearance.

    Seneca loves pastels, with lavender being her favourite colour for clothes.
    History:
    1873. Seneca is born. She's the youngest child of the Lestrange family. Because of her age and her gender she is "banished" to the nursery, where nobody pays her much mind.

    1875. Seneca's metamorphic powers manifest in small ways, but seeing that she is only a toddler still, it doesn't make much of a difference.

    1879. At six, Seneca has outgrown her baby-like appearance and looks more like herself. She is also old enough to attend a small family gathering of sorts. The six-year-old feels out of place among so many dark haired people so she "wills" her hair to turn dark brown. The family is startled and someone makes her try and do it again. When she changes her eye colour to one similar to Cassius' it is confirmed that she is not only a witch, but a metamorphmagus too.

    1880 - 1882. Seneca is taught how to be a proper young lady, etc. Seneca starts to become a little blood purist, even if she doesn't really understand why she should dislike muggleborns.

    February, 1883. While she is enjoying one of her usual boat rides at Padmore Park, Seneca, amongst others, is attacked by a shark. Later, it is discovered that the shark was in fact an animagus with very murderous tendencies.

    July, 1883. Seneca, along with her cousin Gretchen Lestrange, is kidnapped at Honeyduke's Sweet Shop when her governess is not paying attention. Their kidnapper is a man called Kevin Trailor, a muggleborn member of the middle class who was in desperate enough need for money to kidnap two Lestranges. When he lets them write to their father, Seneca and Gretchen manage to sneak in their location in their letters so their fathers manage to find them, kill the man and bring them back to safety. The whole ordeal makes Seneca a bit more jumpy for a few of weeks.

    December, 1883. Valeria marries Mr. Theseus Greengrass in a lavish wedding.

    January 18th, 1884. Tullia is pulled out of her third year to marry her betrothed, William Pendergast. He tried to elope with some muggleborn under the influence of love potion, though the public is not aware of that. Seneca is secretly pleased to have both of her sisters out of her way.

    February, 1884. Seneca is shocked when she is informed that her mother passed away by accidentally impaling herself with a fire poker. But oh well, at least it wasn't Papa!

    May 29th, 1884. While she and her sister Tullia were enjoying an afternoon in the park, they are approached by a particularly odd looking man. After he speaks to them vulgarly, he reveals himself to the girls which rather traumatizes innocent Seneca. Luckily, he is driven away by Tullia, who uses her wand to do so. The accident causes for the sisters to bond a bit, even if Sen would hate to admit it.

    July 23rd, 1884. Seneca's cat, Iris, is killed by an adder. She is very upset.

    September, 1884. Later than usual, due to the plague/quarantine shit, Seneca goes to Hogwarts. She demands that the Sorting Hat to put her in Slytherin. She's pleased when the girl she befriended on the boat to Hogwarts, Isotta Ellesborough, is also sorted into Slytherin.

    -- For later years, check out her extended profile --
    Personality:
    Seneca is a clever and intelligent girl. She's always on a mission of self-improvement. She wants to master every magical skill there is for her to master. She views herself as somewhat special because of her magical gift. Because of that, she can often overestimate herself and become arrogant. She's fiercely loyal to her family and to anyone else who might win that loyalty.
