    Avril is a freckled faced girl with long firey red hair. She has light blue eyes to complement her hair and stands tall at 5'6". She holds her wand in her right hand. She preferes to were more simple dresses than most Upper Class ladies, but not too close to what the Middle Class women wear.
    1867: Her parents meet.
    December 3rd, 1868 | The two of them get married.
    1869: Avril's older brother, Ace, is born.
    1871: Avril is born.
    1872: Their little brother, Leroy, is born.
    1873: Another brother, King, is born.
    1875: Finally a sister is born, and named Jolie. Little Avril does not understand when she has a dream of a baby having a powerful sign of magic. Her mother assumes it is imagination, sparked from meeting a new sibling, but she dreams that it is a baby boy.
    1877: Sybille is born.
    1878: Sybille shows her first signs of magic, which is very surprise. Ace and Avril are jealous of this. Grandma says that Sybille is going to be a powerful witch. Avril doesn't remember her own vision, but her mother does, and is quite shocked at this realization.
    1880: Her brother shows his first signs of magic before going to Hogwarts.
    December, 1880: Avril shows her first signs of magic by making a ballerina figurine start to dance in the air while she is in deep thought over ballet. Avril gets visions more and more regularly, and starts to find it annoying.
    1881: Avril gets a vision of claws, fur, her father. It's all a confusing, upsetting, blur. She tells Ace, and he is convinced that their father is a werewolf, but the tell this to no one.
    The Summer of 1882: The summer before Avril goes to Hogwarts, both siblings tell their parents about Avril's vision together, but it is not until a month later that their parents confirm the suspicion, and that they can never tell anyone about this. The siblings insist that their younger siblings are told, and it is a large debate between the four of them. Avril has a vision of going into Hufflepuff like her mother. She's disappointed and kinda weirded out.
    1882: Avril goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw, and she doesn't know if she should be relieved or not. She hears about how much her mother pampers her younger siblings in her and Ace's absence through letters from her siblings, and is slightly weirded out. She also learns of Leroy's signs of magic.
    The Summer of 1883: The debate is finally won for the two oldest siblings. The family sits down and the secret is shared. They are all sworn to secrecy, though Sybille seems to not believe them, thinking it to be a joke. The family just lets her believe this. She has another vision, of Leroy getting sorted into Gryffindor.
    1883: Leroy joins the two eldest at Hogwarts, and was sorted into Hufflepuff. Avril is furstrated with her visions, and doesn't know whether to believe them or not. She knows that her mother must have been super excited when she heard about it. She has a vision of King's first signs of magic, but decides to keep that to herself, mainly to mess with her parents and because it's probably wrong.
    1884: The vision is true! King shows his signs of magic near when the owls are sent home, and Avril is really amused.
    The Summer of 1885: She has a vision of Edgar not getting his letter at all. She worries about that.
    1885: Her cousin, Edgar, goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor. She is disappointed by this. Ravenclaw pride and all. To her horror, she has a vision of her Grandmother dying that Winter. It never comes to pass, which she is grateful for.
    1886: The young Jolie has joined the group at Hogwarts on Ace's final year, which seems to upset Jolie that she doesn't have more years with her favorite sibling the traitor.
    January 6th, 1887: Avril gets a vision of her mother and... is that the Headmaster's wife with? Yeah, that lady. Well, a vision of those two arguing. It is slightly amusing, but Avril is worried that mother dearest is going to get them kicked out of school.
    February 27th, 1887: The fight happens. Oh, how the letter comes to her of her mother rambling on about such a rude woman.
    1887: Mother is so thrilled about Ace graduating. Avril feels that she shall miss her brother deeply at school.
    July 1st, 1887: Avril wakes up from what she thinks can only be a nightmare of Leroy and uncle Charles battling a flying tiger to protect King and Jolie. They end up being victorious. It is a family story to be told throughout years to come.
    July 9th, 1887: Leroy... is dead. Dead. As well as uncle Charles. That is a cruel twist of fate. She hates her visions. They are cruel, stupid lier.
    July 22nd, 1887: Detail of her brother and uncle's death are featured in the Daily Prophet. Avril is heart broken that her vision was so cruelly wrong. If it had been true, she would have begged them not to go. Now, it is too late.
    August, 1887: More bad news comes at the beginning of the month when her mother tells her and her sisters that she shall be going to the Pendergast Rose instead of returning to Hogwarts. This displeases her greatly. And her mother continues to announce that upon the summer that each of her sisters turn 15. It is completely unfair in her eyes. But, Guinevere does not change her mind one bit.
    Late August, 1887: Guinevere, upon trying to sign her daughter up for PSYR, and is informed that it would not be a good fit. Flustered, she now has her daughter set for homeschooling, still wishing for her to be closer to home than Hogwarts would allow. Her mother also starts to debate doing this for each of her children after OWLs, and has mentioned this to her.
    Personality: Sarcastic, bitter (mainly at her visions, partially at her mother), smart, witty, creative.
