    Evelyn Tilney
    #1
    In Character

    Full Name: Evelyn Rayne Tilney

    Nicknames: Evie

    Birthdate: February 15 1873

    Current Age: 14

    Occupation: 3rd Year

    Reputation: 4

    Residence: London

    Hogwarts House: Slytherin

    Wand: Redwood, 9 1/4", Vampire fang, slightly unyielding

    Blood Status: Halfblood

    Social Class: Middle

    Family: Father:Alfred Tilney
    Mother:Abigail Tilney nee-Smith
    Grandfather:Weston Tilney

    Appearance: Evelyn currently stands at 4'11", tiny frame. She is quite fair, with large, dark eyes. Thick dark hair crowns her head, with a heart shaped face. Her eyes are her standout feature at the moment, which she is a bit self conscious of, having been teased as having 'fish eyes'.

    History: Evelyn was born in February of 1873, to Alfred Tilney, the son of a respectable merchant Weston Tilney, and an american muggle, Abigail Smith. Evelyn's Grandfather was outraged when his son said he had fallen in love, with an American, and a muggle. He was deeply opposed to it, but when told she was pregnant he told his son he would allow them to marry and live in America, with his financial blessing, as long as the child was given to him, they had no more children and they stayed in America. They readily agreed and set out a few weeks after Evelyn was born. Weston had worked tirelessly to keep it as secret as possible, claiming he sent his son over to America to do business there, which was half true. When Evelyn was born he claimed his son's wife had died in childbirth and too heartbroken, had given the child to him.

    Weston was smitten with the baby, and he hoped the magical blood within her would override the muggle.In June of 1877, at the age of 4, Evelyn showed her first signs of magic which delighted Weston. Evelyn had a wonderful childhood, doted upon greatly by her Grandfather, whom she was very fond of.

    The summer of 1884, Evelyn was taken shopping to get her school supplies. During this trip her Grandfather presented her with a vampire fang to use in wand, telling her it was a core handed down in their family to those seen as fit to use it.

    Evelyn headed into her 3rd year, doing well in Potions and Charms, but the thought of her parents ticked on her mind, it didn't help that some nasty talk around school had her mother painted as an American, muggle whore. Her Grandfather worked very hard to keep such talk from her, but it was hard to shield her at school. At home for Christmas break she approached her Grandfather on the subject, and for the first time saw how vicious and cold he could be towards her.

    Personality: Evelyn is quiet, a little shy, but curious about all around her, especially of people's behaviors. She can be obsessive at times, but is calm, polite and proper as her Grandfather and nanny, and Governess expects her to be.

    Sample Roleplay Post: Evelyn was in the Slytherin Common Room, a book about unusual potion ingredients and their effects, open in her lab. She lazily flicked through the pages, getting a concept for the book as a whole before diving in. Which was mostly true. The real reason she wasn't enjoying the book as much as she should be, was that the Christmas break still weighed heavily upon her. It was the first time she had seen her Grandfather get so upset, it had scared her, and now back at school, she felt alone and missed the weekly correspondence they kept up. But she had received no letter in 3 weeks, despite her having sent hers faithfully every Friday, had she really upset him that much? Evie closed the book and took it with her to her room.
