    Appearance:
    Antonia is a good looking woman, making the most of the dark exotic looks of her mother, she does all that she can to highlight these, often going a touch too far.  Her hair is always ornately piled on her head, usually with several accessories, and her dresses are usually also over adorned.  She is usually wearing finely cut, and tailor clothing, that look all the better when styled by her siblings, rather than left to her own devices.

    As with her siblings, she has dark eyes, dark hair, a good figure even without a corset.  She is right handed, as anyone who has been slapped by her will know.  Her skin has an olive tone, in line with her heritage, and she stands at a fairly diminutive 5,0
    History:
    Childhood
    Noni was born, the second child, and first daughter of the Lytton family, she was an outspoken and precocious child who always spoke her mind and didn’t really understand that there was a difference between the behaviour of boys and the behaviours of girls. She would much rather have been up trees, or chasing frogs than doing needle point, or taking part in anything even remotely feminine.  

    She is eventually shoehorned into something like a feminine role, when she is sent to Hogwarts and she makes a poor imitation of being a ‘lady’ and is often in trouble for her behaviour.  At school she is a member of Gryffindor house.  Other than frequently getting into arguments with other students (usually over beast/half human rights) her school years are unremarkable.  She completes her OWLs which are respectable, as are her subsequent NEWTs.  She comes out at the Hogwarts ball, and at a private event shortly thereafter.  

    The Debut:
    Antonia did not really enjoy being a debutante, and did all she could to avoid any and all responsibilities of that nature.  She agreed, under pain of torture (not quite) to do the season, and after which she would be allowed to go travelling with an old aunt.  Having little/no interest in dressing up for the occasion, she allowed her brother, who was now apparently designing dresses regularly, to create her season wear, and it went down very well with everyone else.  She is happy for him, at last he seems to be satisfied by something he is doing.  

    When the season is over she is duly permitted to go travelling with her aunt, she much prefers this life to the dull one of ‘parties’ in England.  While attempting to get home from Whick in Scotland during a particularly vicious storm, Noni attempted to use the flu network, and somehow ended up wildly off course, and in the home of a family she did not know.  That family was ____ Greyback.  

    The Greybacks
    The Greybacks were a quiet and insular family with some strange opinions on werewolves.  In short every son of the family was purposely infected with lycanthropy at age 18 as a rite of passage into manhood –the girls debuted, and the men were infected.  As a result of the general ostracising of the werewolf community, the family lived in relative seclusion, keeping their strange practices very much to themselves, with no one outside the immediate family knowing of the ‘ritual.’  For the most part the wizarding community simply thinks of the family as ‘quiet’ and ‘not very social’ and the men in particular are not known for spending much time in society.  

    Noni however, found she rather liked them, in particular ______, the rather taciturn, brooding oldest son, who she rather pestered with letters and invites.  To the extent that the poor man was not entirely sure how to respond.  It was Antonia who decided that they ought to marry and informed her beloved after one season of her courting him (after first informing him that they were indeed courting) that it was high time they moved this along.  It was only when the engagement was finalised that she was told the family ‘secret’ – the usual practice being to break the news to a potential Greyback bride and if she reacted badly to have them make an unbreakable vow to keep the secret under threat of being eaten by werewolves – that usually did the trick.  Antonia was rather surprised to be informed of her future husband’s furry adventures but in truth wasn’t that phased by it, after all for 3 days of the month she wasn’t much fun to be around either.  

    Antonia’s family of course, were not told of the Greyback family ‘quirk’  -instead they simply believe the family are one of those ‘odd’ highland dwelling insular families, that are very socially awkward.  Antonia is in no way ashamed of her husband, and in-laws werewolf-ism however, she keeps the secret because she loves the family and they are very important to her.  The wedding was duly set and the pair married, quickly producing a number of children.  Shortly after her wedding Antonia began to study the animagus transformation as an added protection for the full moon should something go wrong, or should the in-laws need something. It took 6 years to master, hampered by her pregnancies but she eventually succeeded and her form was a dark black timber wolf.

    The family live in ‘Greyback Reach’ an unplottable and expansive estate in the highlands of Scotland.  It is spelled to only be accessible to invited individuals (making the mystery of the flu malfunction all the more perplexing).  During the 3 days of the moon, the non-lycan members of the family spend the days in London, or safely spelled inside the castle, while the feral males hunt deer in the forests around the estate.  If anyone should ask, which is infrequent because the men are not known for being social, people are told that the men are away on a hunting party.  


    Antonia very much loves her husband, who she refers to as a ‘grumpy pup’(much to his annoyance).  The awkward and quiet man, from an awkward and quiet family wasn’t really sure what he was getting when he married the outspoken and very public Miss Antonia Lytton – but it’s rather too late now.
    Personality: Sassy, vivacious, confident, outgoing, take no prisoners, give no shits, straight talking.
