    Fairy, the tankinese cat
    Appearance: One of the first things most people notice about the girl is how pristine she looks. Her always chosen to accent her blueish colored eyes, her blonde hair curled or straightened to perfection with no strand out of place. She isn't tall per say, however, she is taller than the company she keeps, making her four feet and eleven inches seem large. She is easily a stick, weighing in at only eighty-four pounds, that make her seem more like skin and bone, though she fits her fancy dress quite well. She tends to wear upper-class fashions when she can, bitter of a legacy stolen before she was born, along with the jewels and hair to match. She holds her wand in her right hand.
    History: 
    Quote:1873
    Two children are born to Matthew and Evelyn, twins, a boy, Timothy, and a girl, Demelza.

    1875
    Two years later, Demelza gains another brother who is named Ethan, though, at two, she doesn't really care much about him, rather than the fact her parents no longer pay as much attention to her and her twin - the only one she doesn't yet mind sharing the spotlight with.

    1878
    At five, Dezzy shows her first signs of magic. While it should be a pleasant even, she is instead in a fair bit of trouble as she was caught in the act of almost injuring her youngest brother with a toy after her mother leaves her to check on him - thankfully the wooden toy was stopped in time.

    1879
    When her grandfather's, Gaylord's body is found, murdered, the family moves to Bartonburg.

    1880
    Her youngest brother is born, and seven-year-old Demelza is only slightly more rational about Edward than she was Ethan and turns her time towards preening for the ever thinning attention.

    1882
    The family moves to Irvingly, something she isn't too thrilled about while her eldest cousin, of those in contact, is off to school. 

    1884
    Her mother miscarries and while Evelyn is upset, Demelza is quite okay with the fact. That is one less sibling to steal away the attention and her father is home more often! She also starts school this year, meaning a bit of the attention is placed back on her. Ruby and Topaz are also starting Hogwarts with her! She is more pleased about Ruby than Topaz, however. Also, her uncle becomes Minister of Magic.

    1886-1887
    During her third year, Demelza adds on two electives, Divinations and Earth Magic. Near the end of the year, her uncle starts to court Miss Ada Lovegood and what should be a happy occasion is ruined by a Witch Weekly article that subgust Miss Lovegood used a love potion to gain her uncle's attention. It isn't so much this that causes trouble for the children but rather this was how they found out her uncle was even searching for a new wiffe, let alone chose one.
    Personality: bubbly. social. termperamental. flirty. petty. loyal. won't settle.
