    Appearance: Standing at a proud four feet, nine inches, Sinéad looks nothing like the personality she presents. With immaculate golden hair, sharp grey eyes, and all-around lovely features, she rarely lets herself smile in public, often leading to a rather haughty blank expression. But when she smiles, it's a brilliant moment, full of pure unadulterated joy. She tends towards blues and reds in her day-to-day wear, though at school is resigned to her simple black robes, and carries her wand in her left hand.
    1872: Born on a particularly stormy March night, Sinéad O'Luain was welcomed with much jubilation. The first daughter born of Aislin and Faolan, she is almost immediately given the nickname of Jewel, or Seoid.
    1876: On a clear summer's day, the family as a whole is behind the main house of the estate, when Sinéad's favorite doll goes rolling down the hill, unnoticed by her father, who is making her mother comfortable, and her other siblings, who are all busy amongs themselves. But rather than screaming, Sinéad simply blinks, and her doll is back in her hands. She resumes playing as if nothing had happened.
    1878: Cathal receives his acceptance letter from Hogwarts, leaving Sinéad and the rest of the family to commence his education.
    1880: Cearul follows the firstborn son into Hogwarts.
    1883: Sinéad's acceptance letter arrives. Her father takes her to Diagon Alley to purchase her wand, schoolbooks, school robes, and a male barn owl, whom Sinéad names Dahy. Upon arriving, she is sorted into Ravenclaw.
    1886: Upon returning from her third year, Sinéad is informed by Faolan that, unbeknownst to her and the rest of the family, she was born betrothed, due to a long-standing contract between her family and a family somewhere in Scotland. A family with a lineage just as long. But Sinéad doesn't let this break her. She takes it in stride, as if she had always known, and finds herself hesitant to seek out the other side of the situation.
    1887: In the midst of her fourth year of Hogwarts, Sinéad has some close friends, and a number of acquaintances. She doesn't know how to approach the situation she was only recently informed of, and yet knows it is quite literally the most significant piece of information she might know about herself.
