    Occupation: Student
    Reputation: 4
    Residence: London

    Cherry, 10½ inches, with twin veela hairs at its core. It is a finicky wand that only truly works when George is particularly concentrated.
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Middle Class
    Family:
    Wilfred Waterford, Father [1832]
    Eleanor Waterford née ----, Mother [1840]
    Alexander Waterford, Brother [1880]
    Appearance:
    Delicate features and a waiflike build make George a very pretty boy indeed, standing at a flat five feet. Brown hair doesn’t quite reach the collar and matches large, brown eyes. Clothes worn while not in school robes are typical to George’s middle class station. George is ambidextrous. Most notable is what is beneath George’s clothes, where she is in full possession of female genitalia, though has not yet become a ‘woman’ in fact or in form.
    History:
    PRE-BIRTH | The Waterford family was once very grand indeed, possessing a large estate in Cornwall and various Ministry seats. Over time, though, poor leadership and ill luck saw the family begin to dwindle, until, at the turn of the century, they were forced to sell their Cornish properties and move to London in a last ditch effort to cling to the lifestyle of which they were so proud. This failed, and by the time Wilfred Waterford was born, the only child in his generation to reach five years of age, the family was firmly middle class.

    He, too, would be plagued by ill luck, with his wife struggling to deliver a living child, and those children she did bear successfully not lasting past their second birthday. George’s birth was dubbed a miracle, then, and—not expecting any further miracles to come along—Wilfred was determined to make the most of it.

    1874 | George Emerson Waterford is registered as male, in spite of the fact that the baby is quite clearly female. Uncertain he would ever get another child, Wilfrid made the controversial call with only slight support from his wife in an effort to buy the dying family one last generation. George, then, is dutifully swaddled in pink and given all the things expected of little boys, and Eleanor cares for the babe herself, rather than hire a nanny and risk her leaking the truth.

    1877 | An inauspicious first act of magic see’s George change the colour of his blanket from pink to blue. His father is not thrilled.

    1879 | Eleanor is pregnant once again, for the first time since George’s arrival. The family does not expect it to ‘take’, but hopes for the best. George begins his formal lessons in reading, writing, mathematics, history, and French.

    1880 | A true son arrives to the Waterfords, called Alexander for his grandfather. On inspecting the infant, George discovers something that they do not have in common and asks his father about it. It is the first, and only, time that George’s father hits him. Their relationship has always been strained, but this latest development makes it even rougher still.

    1885 | George goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw. He is fast friends with -----, a fellow first year eagle, and in inadvertently seeing the boy naked one day, realizes that he shares in common with Alexander what George does not. Over the Christmas holidays, George presses Eleanor this time, who quietly discloses the truth: George was born female, not male, and only a clerical decision and their father’s sheer force of will has seen any different. George is understandably shaken by this news.

    1886 | Struggling with this new information, George spends the better part of the year struggling with exactly who they are—their natural form or their nurtured form? George quietly begins to think of herself as the girl she was born to be, and find this image lines up much better with her sense of self. Still, she cannot tell anyone, and for now is content to play the part her father has cast her in, though secretly dreams of the life she could someday have.

    1887 | Going into her third year, George selects Ancient Studies and Ghoul Studies as electives for her OWL years.
    Personality:
    PROUD — CLEVER — LOYAL — PRIVATE — INSECURE

    Though George is publically presented as male and should be addressed as He/Him/His, privately she considers herself as female and will use She/Her/Hers pronouns.
