  • Stands at four feet, eleven inches tall with a thin and lanky build. Never one to appreciate tight corsets, her proportions are fairly even. She weighs slightly less than average.
  • Long, dark hair kept in the same braided hairstyle daily.
  • Dark, rounded eyes and thin, messy eyebrows.
  • Has always preferred muggle clothes, but has recently been forced to wear "traditional wizarding attire". She wears robes in shades of silvers and blacks, and sometimes darker purples.
  • Wields her wand with her right hand.
  • History:
    1873 — Frida is the second born child and firstborn daughter to Orestes and Elda Lestrange. A quiet infant, Frida frequently suffered from lung-related issues until her first year was over.

    1874 — The Lestranges welcome another daughter into the family. She is named Gretchen and, unlike her elder siblings, is a little blonde infant with big blue-green eyes.

    1875 — Frida's great-uncle Tybalt is sentenced to Azkaban after slaying a handful of individuals at the Ministry. She is far too young to understand the impact it has on her family.

    1876 — Another daughter is born to the family. Her name is Meta and the toddler Frida has little opinion on her birth.

    1877 — After an incident leads the the revealing of the magical world to muggles, the Lestrange family moves to a home in Hogsmeade. Frida views the move optimistically at first, but inevitably grows homesick and is decidedly unhappy there.

    1879 — Another boy is born to the family. He is named Klaus II, and Frida only has a slight opinion on his birth. She shows interest in the newborn at first, but eventually grows bored.

    1881 — Another daughter is born, and she is named Hilda.

    1882 — Kristoffer begins Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin.

    1883 — Another son named Aric is born to the family. Ten-year-old Frida offers to keep him company while in the presence of the nanny, and frequently spends her alone time watching his every move.

    1884 — Devastation hits the family in the form of the Hogsmeade Laughing Plague. Their mother supposedly dies from the plague, as does Aric and Klaus, and the subsequent move to London causes a bit of anxiety to form in the heart of the eleven-year-old. Her distress is heightened when her betrothal with her cousin Kimon Selwyn is broken, leaving her with an uncertain future. More change occurs when she is shipped off to Hogwarts. She is sorted into Hufflepuff and takes a liking to her Potions and Charms classes. Flying is her least favorite, though she doesn't exactly fancy Defence Against the Dark Arts either. She has trouble making friends, and this causes her to hang off her cousin and the friends she makes.

    1885 — Frida's father and younger sister die within months of each other, leaving the young Hufflepuff distraught. The family is separated, with the girls going to live with their Uncle Priam and Kristoffer being left under the care of Uncle Lucius. She spends an unhealthy amount of time crying, though she's sure to hide from her sisters and cousins when she does this.

    1886 — Frida adds Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, and Ancient Studies to her class schedule. She finds all three to be interesting, though she fails to receive perfect marks in any of the three.

    1887 — Frida prepares to enter her fourth year at Hogwarts. She clings to Gretchen, Seneca, and their friend Vesta Bones with the hope of being included. She realizes making other friends would be a good idea, though she's far too anxious to make the first move with anyone else. School becomes her main focus.
