  • History:
    1875 — Holly is born the fifth child to Benedict Scrimgeour and his wife, though she's only the fourth to survive her first week. She is a loud and demanding child — so much to the point where it seems as if she's purposefully antagonizing her nanny.

    1876 — A pair of fraternal female twins are born, and they are named Emilia and Camille. Holly's mother passes within a week of giving birth, though Holly is far too young to process her death. The family enters mourning, though Benedict quietly begins searching for a replacement mother for his children.

    1877 — Muggles discover magic and the Scrimgeour family moves to the newly-renovated village of Hogsmeade and makes their home in the upscale neighborhood of Wellingtonshire.

    1878 — Benedict marries a young woman named Rosalie. Overwhelmed by her displeasure when Rosalie moves into the family home, Holly completely tears the bottom half of her step-mother's dress in a rather violent first display of magic.

    1879 — Philippa drops out of Hogwarts and begins her season early. She meets a gentleman who Holly likes very much. The two begin courting and are engaged by the next year.

    1880 — The same year that Philippa is married, Holly's step-mother delivers a son named Wilton. Holly is displeased by the change in routine — and most especially by the birth of a boy!

    1882 — Virgil begins Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin. Stephana is married to a wealthy pureblood gentleman in July.

    1884 — The laughing plague that ravages Hogsmeade takes the life of five of Holly's family members: Philippa and her daughter, Stephana, Virgil, and poor Emilia! Holly is especially heartbroken by the loss of her younger sister, as Holly has always considered herself close with the twin girls.

    1885 — Following the previous summer's events, the much smaller Scrimgeour family moves back to a London townhouse.

    1887 — Holly goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin.
