    Willow Middlemiss
    Full Name: Willow Middlemiss
    Nicknames: None
    Birthdate: February 23, 1863
    Current Age: 24
    Race: Veela
    Occupation: Enchanting Fiancée of Andrew Lyness
    Reputation: 3
    Residence: The Middlemiss family estate in Suffolk, England (Elsewhere)
    Social Class: Upper
    Adoptive Father: Edmond Middlemiss
    Adoptive Mother: Lenobia Middlemiss
    Adoptive Sister: Begonia _ née Middlemiss
    Sister of Soul: Juniper Middlemiss

    Fiance: Andrew Lyness
    Appearance: With light red-brown hair, a stately sort of oval face, full lips, and jade-green eyes that hold an innate air of being sophisticated and intelligent, Willow certainly lives up to her name. Slender-framed, with a fashionably narrow waist and long limbs, she stands at five feet, six inches tall, often trying to make herself look a hint shorter by wearing skirts just that much bigger than is technically fashionable. Her dresses typically flatter her seemingly sun-kissed complexion, in jewel-like shades of sapphire, emerald, amethyst, and topaz, typically in styles that suit the present fashion with an element or two stepping forward. For a veela, however, she is shockingly physically modest, reluctant to display her...assets.
    1862: Early on in the year, a gathering of veela met beneath the blue moon with stones, which became eggs while bathed in the moonlight.
    1863: On the twenty-third day of February, Willow becomes the second egg to hatch from the clutch. She and the first newly hatched being attach to one another, calling one another sister without hesitation. The following month, the pair are discovered by the Middlemiss family after wandering onto their property. They are named, and the only biological Middlemiss child becomes annoyed at the thought of having to compete with new faces, given that the husband simply ruled that they would take these children in for shelter, safekeeping, and raising right.
    1866: Begonia Middlemiss, the aforementioned annoyed biological child, graduates from Hogwarts. This doesn't affect Willow's view of her at all, seeing Begonia as petulant, irritating, and rude. But Willow, at least, knows that it would be better to be cordial than confrontational.
    1876: Juniper's birdlike form reveals itself over an argument with Begonia, about a dress. Willow says nothing, knowing that soon, the same will be her. Thankfully, though, neither of Begonia's parents are present.
    1877: The news of the wizarding world isn't a true concern to Willow - but it concerns Begonia, apparently, and even Juniper is nervous. Willow isn't concerned herself, but she pretends to be for sympathy's sake.
    1878: A young, muggle-born wizard named Andrew Lyness comes, intending, apparently, to ask permission to court Begonia. In the throes of her own puberty, when Willow sees him she becomes utterly smitten. Love at first sight. She and Juniper spend the whole of his visit spouting off Begonia's less attractive traits, not all of which are actually true, and when Begonia confronts Willow about it later, the latter's avian shape unveils itself with the most shrill shrieks possible. She manages to convince Lenobia and Edmond that it was a bird that was caught in the netting outside the house, thankfully, and Begonia is now too terrified to try convincing them otherwise. Not without proof.
    1883: Begonia gets married. Finally.
    1885: In late October, Andrew Lyness begins courting Willow, a pleasant event. Given his own blood status and its social damnation, even after he learns of Willow's true nature, he is accepting of her and willing to help her pretend to his parents.
    1886: Come November, Andrew asks for Willow's hand. This makes the young woman most ecstatic! The following month, Juniper begins courting a gentleman!! Even more joy!!
    1887 And now both Willow and Juniper are engaged - a most joyous event indeed.
    Personality: Imaginative, gracious, outspoken, spontaneous, imprudent, abrasive, tactless, familial, questioning
