    History:
    1835: Bihotz is born into the world, to muggles Helge and Blythe Hase. The family lives in a small village in a German State. She is the only child of the couple. Her mother is a very religious woman, though her father is not. While her mother is a school house teacher, her father is a scholar that studies the culture of Spain, finding it fascinating, and even naming his beloved daughter a Spanish name.
    1841: The young Bihotz shows her first signs of magic, by making one of her mother's homemade treats, that were being saved for later, to her. Her mother is wildly shocked. The woman assume that the devil lives inside Bihotz. Blythe is very fearful, and wishes to send Bihotz away, but Helge convinces the woman not to, loving the young girl too much. He does, however, allow his wife to not allow Bihotz to leave their home, instead tutoring her personally. Among other things, she is taught a couple of other languages, including English, as well as a hint of Spanish from her father. She grows up not being taught about anything magical at all, her mother not wishing to let her near what Blythe views to be evil. Blythe's husband does not allow her to do any exorcisms on the young Bihotz, not wanting to scare the girl for life from such things.
    1846: A school official comes, saying that she is a witch. Her mother... she do not react well. Sending the official away in fear, thinking the poor man to be a demon. Exasperated with his frantic wife, Helge moves the family to a small village in England in hopes that it will calm the poor woman down.
    1849: Bihotz, though growing up in the home of her very superstitious and religious mother, proves to be not nearly as untrusting to the world. She begins sneaking out at night, wishing to interact more with the world, though the other residents of the small village are asleep during her little outings.
    1853: On one of her little outings, she meets Gatzon Grayrose, a Spanish vampire. She is instantly in love. She does not realize that he is a vampire, having never been taught about them. He is very charming, and as in love with her as she is with him.
    1858: She and her father finally convince her mother to let her out of the home more. Blythe is wary of this, but the two slowly convinces the woman after several weeks of trying to talk her into the idea.
    1860: Gatzon is finally introduced to her parents, and though they are wary of the man, they allow the courtship. Well, her mother thinks he's a demon and that the devil lives inside her daughter, so this might be the best man that her daughter is gonna get. Helge has no clue what to think about Gatzon's strangeness, but does wonder if his wife's thoughts about him are correct. He doesn't bother questioning it, seeing how happy his daughter is.
    October 25th, 1861: Gatzon and Bihotz marry. The oblivious muggleborn girl does not know what she has married still. She does not understand the signs, thinks he's a demon and doesn't care at this point. She is in love, she does not even look for the truth.
    Late in the year 1862: A son is born. Gatzon allows his precious human wife to name their child. Bihotz is quite pleased to pick a name. Like her father, she has grown to love Spanish names and some of the culture, and Gatzon seems quite honored by the fact that she names their son a Spanish name. She names the boy Kemen.
    1863: Another year, another child. A daughter is born, and Bihotz insists that her husband gets to pick the name. He names her Zoraida. True pain comes later in the year, when her husband goes missing, for her to hear that he was found dead in the forest. She is shocked, and moves herself and her children into another English village for a new beginning and distance from her parents, getting a job a Librarian. She is heart broken by these events. Her husband does leave behind his money to her so she and their children are supported, both of their children being too young to need such money, though a fair amount is left to their son for when he gets older.
    1868: Bihotz meets the muggle, Peter Horton. He is as charming as her first husband, but not nearly as kind as he appears to be.
    March 2nd, 1869: The pair marry. She quits her job.
    Early October, 1869: Peter shows his true personality as he is furious that she has not yet shown signs of being with child.
    December, 1869: He first hits her.
    1870: Bihotz has her first child of Peter's. She does not love this child nearly as much as her first ones, as the child is the very reminder of the abuse that she had received, and the difference between this man and the man she had loved. Peter never even gives her an option of naming the child, naming him Winton. The hitting does not go away, but does lessen.
    1873: Another child is born, and upon finding out that it is a daughter, Peter hits Bihotz. Bihotz is shocked, but does not fight back. Her husband names the daughter Blanche, then storms out of the room in a rage. Though still not loving this child as much as her first two, she does show her slightly more love than Winton, given she had gotten to the abuse by now, but still is reminded that this child is not linked to her real love.
    August, 1874: Letters from Hogwarts comes to Bihotz's home. Bihotz is more open to this idea of witches and wizards, but it does conflict with the upbringing that her mother brought into her life. She is not nearly as religious as her mother, taking after her father. She allows Kemen and Zoraida to go to Hogwarts. Her husband does not care, they are not his children.
    September 3rd, 1874: A shocking letter from her first daughter says that she and her brother are being called 'half-breeds' by their fellow class mates. Bihotz is completely confused. A letter sent of the confusion, and thus receiving further explanation that her children have been labled as 'half-vampire' by their professors and classmates.
    November 23rd, 1874: Her mother and father die of illness. She is heartbroken once more by this, especially about her father's death. Her eldest son, Kemen, is set to inherit the money that his Grandfather had. Peter is in no way pleased by this, given that Kemen is not his son. The beatings worsen once more.
    June 5th, 1879: The abuse ends with the death of Peter. He dies from a heart attack. She does go into mourning, but is upset mainly with herself for not being upset by the man's death. Her younger children are much more saddened by the events, especially Winton, who is set to inheret from his father.
    June 30th, 1879: She and her children move to York, England for a fresh start, as well as the chance to be closer to Hogwarts for her children. Bihotz gets a job as a Librarian. She starts trying to get more familiar in the world that her children are being taught in. She asks her oldest son to help her during his summer breaks. She starts getting into stuff like Daily Prophet, wanting to learn more of the community. Kemen goes with her to shop for wands.
    1881: Kemen and Zoraida graduate from school. Bihotz is very proud of them. Later that year, Winton goes to Hogwarts, though seems very bitter that his older siblings have already graduated.
    1884: Bihotz meets a wizard named Lyle Whitney. She is hesitant towards him, remembering Peter and his behavior later on in their relationship.
    1885: Blanche goes to Hogwarts with Winton.
    December 2nd, 1885: Bihotz and Lyle officially begin courting. It is a slow relationship, and Bihotz soon learns that Lyle has two daughters who are from his last marriage, and are daughters of a veela.
    December 6th, 1885: She is introduced to the two daughters. They are quite kind.
    1886: Bihotz starts to become very good with potions, and her son suggests becoming a potioneer. For now, though, it is only a hobby.
    November 30, 1886: Bihotz and Lyle get married. She once again quits being a librarian.
    1887: It is Winton's final year at Hogwarts, and her daughter, Zoraida, expresses a desire to become Minister of Magic when Mr. Urquart resigns. She is now expecting her fifth child, and the first of her and Lyle's shared children. He has proven to be a much kinder husband, though his personality is quite different from her first. She does love his man, and he has shown to love her.
    Personality: Sweet, kind, sensitive, smart, cunning, hopeless romantic, curious about the world around her, Hattie Whitledge probably gave her a book on how to name children even though the two never met, and:
