    #1
    In Character
    [Image: D4W2Y.png]
    Full Name: Storm Vesper
    Nicknames: Has many other aliases
    Birthdate: 24 September 1863
    Current Age: 23 Years
    Occupation: Shapeshifting Thief; Metamorphmagus
    Reputation: Two
    Residence: The Horned Serpent, London
    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff
    Wand: 10½", dogwood,  swishy, kelpie hair
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Lower
    Family:
    The Ashwinders are family, enough said.
    Appearance:
    Storm is a metamorphmagus and thus their appearance changes quite often. In their "main" appearance, they have hazel eyes and long blonde hair. They stand at five feet, seven inches and has a willowy build. Storm has a magical brand behind their left ear that is always there, no matter what appearance they decide to take on. Storm's ashwinder tattoo snakes up from their right ankle to their knee. Clothing tends to fall on the side of 'practical and easy to move in' and tend to fluctuate between musculine and feminine clothing. They purposely make it as hard as possible for anyone to figure out their birth gender. They are right handed.
    History:
    1863: Storm was born into the world on the 24th of September in 1863. They were quickly found to be a metamorphmagus rather quickly since they keep changing their hair and eye color. Their childhood would prove to not be a very good one since Storm's parents are neglectful at their best and abusive at their worst. They learn to fend for themselves rather quickly and manage to survive.

    1867: Storm's mother suffers a miscarriage that makes her even meaner than she had been before. A friendly neighbor takes pity on Storm and teaches Storm how to read and write.

    1870: Storm displays their first signs of magic when they make the display window of a bakery disappear. This would prove to be their first time stealing and it is quite obviously, not the last. It soon proves to be something that they are quite good at, truth be told.

    1875: Thanks to the first year scholarship, Storm is able to attend a year at Hogwarts. They are sorted into Hufflepuff which is where Storm begins to truly blossom and is the first place that Storm is told that they have a gift for music. Hogwarts is also where Storm realises that they are not quite the same as the other people in their dorm. They aren't quite sure how to describe it nor do they really know how to deal with it.

    1876: For financial reasons, Storm doesn't get to return to Hogwarts. The plus side is that having a wand makes thieving even easier for them.

    1877: Storm's parents are quick to move to Hogsmeade when it is established whilst Storm opts to remain in London. They live primarily on the streets but are easily able to get food for their tummy. They also begin using other people's appearances to gain entry to wealthy households for the purpose of robbing them. Storm isn't quite sure why it took themselves so damn long to realise this lucrative benefit of being a metamorphmagus. Along with this, Storm begins to outright change their gender from time to time and find themselves feeling much more comfortable in their own skin than they ever had before. To be quite honest, Storm comes to the realization that they don't feel either 'female' or 'male' exclusively at any given time - they're not really sure how to even describe how it is that they feel so they don't even try.

    1878: Storm impersonates the wrong person and is caught in the act by them whilst in the middle of liberating some of their belongings from their household. Storm steadfastedly refuses to revert to their 'true' appearance but is still unable to escape. The person leaves a magical brand behind Storms left ear and eventually lets them go free. Storm tries their best to rid themselves of the brand but that sucker is there for life, from the looks of it. It is always there, no matter which appearance Storm takes on. Luckily, it can be hidden most of the time using Storm's hair.

    1880-1886: Storm learns of the Ashwinders and it isn't long until they join the group of thieves. Storm considers them family and is quite proud to have earned a place amongst them. With a place to actually call home and feel relatively safe, Storm has since nurtured their natural musical talent. This is mostly in the form of singing, though Storm is also working on teaching themselves how to play the violin with the use of a violin and some instruction books that they swiped from some music teachers home.

    1887: Storm is quite happily living the life of an Ashwinder and doesn't see much of a point in changing that. Nor would they ever want to. They also continue to let what their birth gender is be a mystery.

    Personality:

    LOYAL - MISCHEIVEOUS - FLIRTATIOUS - ATHLETIC
    QUIRKY - CLEVER - MUSICALLY INCLINED - GENDERFLUID
