    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Irvingly
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: English Oak, 10", reasonably supple, unicorn tail hair
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Lower
    Family:
    Father: Solomon Abberton (b. 1849)
    Mother: Grace Abberton née Cromwell (b. 1855)
    Sisters: Charity Abberton (b. 1876), Mercy Abberton (b. 1878), Patience Abberton (b. 1880)

    Maternal Aunts: Hope _ née Cromwell (b. 1853), Joy _ née Cromwell (b. 1857)
    also their husbands and children
    Maternal Uncle: Justice Cromwell (b. 1859)
    Appearance: At a respectable height of four feet, ten inches, Tansy holds herself like a young woman of higher standing, her black hair carefully bound at the base of her skull, brown eyes always full of joy and curiosity. A bit more fully-figured than most girls of her class, Tansy actually likes her school robes, chafing against the restriction at home to wear Muggle clothes in public. She is right-handed.
    History:
    1872: Solomon Abberton, a muggle, meets Grace Cromwell, a pureblood witch, in July.
    1873: Solomon and Grace are married in January. Grace reveals she is pregnant in July.
    1874: Temperance Abberton, the couple's first child, is born February fourteenth, healthy and whole.
    1876: Charity Abberton is born.
    1877: Three year old Tansy - who begins calling herself this in place of her full first name, given its length, at Uncle Justice's prompting - exhibits her first sign of magic, summoning a rattle from across the room to hand to her baby sister. Solomon is present for this outburst, and initially reacts with fear, until Grace explains the situation as best she can - her family has been magical for as long as she knows. Solomon does not fully understand, but he remains, and begins to learn of this new side to the world in their corner of the country as the rest of England's Muggle population loses their minds over this same revelation.
    1878: Mercy Abberton is born.
    1880: Patience Abberton is born.
    1882: When the announcement of a new community where muggles and wizards can coexist, Grace and Solomon agree that such a community would be a better place to raise their children. They make the move with assistance from Grace's brother Justice, who accompanies the family to ensure things go well.
    1884: The family escapes the Laughing Plague unscathed. Tansy, about to enter the wider wizarding world, pays express attention to the news during this time.
    1885: Tansy begins her Hogwarts career, sorted into Gryffindor. She excels at charmwork, and is not too horrible at her other classes.
    1886: Tansy gets good enough exam scores to return for her second year on an academic scholarship. Her father encourages her to focus in on something early on, and in reading one of her textbooks, Tansy decides that when she graduates, she wants to be either an auror or a magizoologist.
    1887: With her goals in mind, Tansy signs on for Care of Magical Creatures and Earth Magic for her OWL courses entering into her third year, human lineage proven with all appropriate documentation.
    Personality:
