    November 1887
    Naeva Lécuyer
    [Image: R5fF44u.jpg]
    Full Name: Naeva Basira "Colette" Lécuyer
    Nicknames: Her paternal relatives call her Basira, her father and maternal relatives call her Ange, French for Angel. Naeva introduces herself with the extraneous middle name in high propriety situations not out of mourning, but simply honoring the woman who gave her life.
    Birthdate: December 6, 1869
    Current Age: 17 Years
    Occupation: Seventh Year
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Hogsmeade
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: Ash, 11", hard, Doxy wing
    Blood Status: Pure
    Social Class: Upper
    Father: Durant Basem Lécuyer (b. 1831)
    Mother: Colette Lécuyer née Bélanger (1843-1877)
    Sister: Odette Samia Colette Lécuyer (b. 1868)
    Sister: Mireille Imane Colette Lécuyer(b. 1868)
    Brother: Mercer Basem Lécuyer (died hours after birth)

    Pet: Margaux
    Appearance: Standing five feet, two inches tall with deep brown hair typically in fine braids and dark eyes, Naeva is every bit her mother's daughter, down to the arch of her brow and the curve of her chin. Typically dressed in elegant robes, though the occasional muggle dress permeates her wardrobe, Naeva is left-preferentially ambidextrous.
    1869: Naeva is born to Colette and Durant, the third daughter and first single birth.
    1874: In the dead of winter, during a particularly terrible snowstorm at Colette's mother's home, Naeva sparks a fire in the nursery. Thankfully, Colette is in time to extinguish the flames.
    1875: Odette's first sign of magic. Naeva plays with the animated paper rabbit.
    1876: While the family is on vacation in the summer months, Odette and Naeva encounter a poisonous serpent. As it approaches Naeva, Odette begins making weird hissing noises and the snake goes away! Naeva doesn't stop talking of this event with her parents for six weeks.
    1877: Mama's attacked on the streets of London while walking with one of her friends by a mob of Muggles after they catch sight of her wand and make assumptions and goes into labor, months early. She dies shortly after labor, at the family home, and within a few short hours, the infant boy that Papa named Mercer dies in the nurse's arms. As she lay, struggling for breath, she called for her husband, whom she insisted keep their three daughters in school, that they might not turn out as she had - just a socialite, a wife, and a mother. She wishes her daughters, her legacy, to be intelligent rather than empty-headed, and, had she had more time than mere seconds, she would have added that she wanted to see them entering careers of some import. Unfortunately, she died before this came to pass. The nurse is never seen again. The family moves to Hogsmeade as soon as it is possible.
    1879: Naeva is betrothed to an English stranger she has never seen or met. While she knows this is normal, Naeva worries that she won't love her future husband. She wants love, like Dad has for Mama.
    1880: Odette and Mireille go to Hogwarts, leaving Naeva alone at home. Naeva doesn't like that.
    1881: During the summer, the three sisters speak to their father about a small change in their names: adding Mama's name to theirs as a second middle name. He is honored they have decided to pay tribute to their mother in a unique and unifying way, and so he allows them to use it socially, though does not make it legal and official. Come September, Naeva finally begins Hogwarts! She joins her sisters in the house of cunning and ambition, Slytherin, after nearly three minutes of the Hat debating between the serpent and the badger. Ultimately, Naeva asked to join her sisters.
    1883: Mid-summer, Aunt Manon is publically disowned and never seen again. Papa sits Naeva down later that day and explains that Aunt Manon had attacked Mireille with the torture curse. Naeva is entirely unaware that Papa in fact killed Aunt Manon, whose crime was unreported due to the simple fact that Manon's parents and siblings collectively decided to disown Manon instead of bringing shame to the bloodline.
    1885: Odette and Mireille sit their OWLs.
    1886: Naeva sits her OWLs. Her grades were as follows:
    Defence Against the Dark ArtsE
    Ghoul StudiesP
    History of MagicP

    1887: Naeva has entered her seventh and final year of Hogwarts, taking Astronomy, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Divination, Potions, and Transfiguration as graded courses, with Art as her non-graded. She expects to enter the Pendergast School for Young Roses at the end of her school years.
    ESTJ-A, the Executive
    Dedicated ♥ Strong-willed ♥ Honest ♥ Loyal ♥ Organized
    Inflexible ♥ Stubborn ♥ Judgmental ♥ High-strung

    Naeva could quite easily be described as spoiled: she thinks she is owed the respect her father had worked so hard to earn, and that the delights of her class are things she deserves. Dedicated to her father, sisters, and the preservation of her mother's memory as she is, Naeva is, quite unfortunately, the very antithesis of her mother's desires. She seeks power, more than her sisters seem to, and will do whatever she needs to in order to have it. However, she does not exactly deny that power is what she seeks. She wants to improve her own station as best as possible, and will admit this to whomever makes an inquiry.

    Naeva does not like chaos, and judges others based on their blood and legacy over their own actions and skills. She sees the world like a pyramid - and she wants to be at the top, no matter who she has to walk over to get there.
