  • Has a fair complexion with light freckles.
  • Dresses in only the finest fabrics, but her sense of fashion could be far better! She's most certainly not the best at coordinating patterns.
  • Wields her wand with her right hand.
  • History:
    1870 — Leandra is born after her drunken father demands he share her mother's bed one evening when they are well into their forties. She is a loud child, with her next eldest siblings being born twelve years before she!

    1871 — Leandra's first sign of magic appears when she's a mere one year old! While her parents excitedly acknowledge the development, they still pay very little attention to their youngest. The youngest Nott child stays in the perpetual company of her nanny, rarely even catching a glimpse of a sibling or other family member!

    1875 — Cordula goes off and gets married to a respectable, pureblooded gentleman, and Leandra attends her first formal event! She cries most of the time due to extreme restlessness and has to be given a sleeping potion by her nanny, so she misses the majority of the action.

    1876 — Leandra begins work with her governess. She learns magic history, how to read, basic maths, and a plethora of other things a young woman of her status would need to know. She begins to master the French language, which her mother has been shoving down her throat since she could form coherent words.

    1880 — Severina leaves the house to get married, leaving Leandra the sole child occupant of her parents' home. While Leandra feels lonely for a little while, she's all too glad to have the stern and stuffy Severina gone!

    1881 — Leandra begins school at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and is sorted into Gryffindor. Upon beginning her classes, it becomes apparent that she's not the academic sort. She struggles to keep up with her homework due to uncertainty and she's not the best with her wand. Nevertheless, she perseveres and manages to pass her classes with average scores.

    1882 — Arnoldus gets married and Leandra is pulled out of school for the day. While happy to celebrate her eldest brother's special day, she's resentful that it means she'll have to get farther behind on her schoolwork.

    1883 — Not wanting to add too much to her plate, Leandra simply adds Divination to her class schedule. She enjoys the class, finding it the most interest-based out of her bunch, and excels in it beyond her other classes.

    Spring-Summer, 1886 — Leandra takes her OWL exams in the midst of a fit of anxiety. She's fairly confident she's failed half of them, and spends the majority of the summer beating herself up over her own lack of intelligence. When scores come in July, she'd given the choice by her father: drop out of school and attend Pendergast's School for Young Roses or continue on with her education. Seeing that dropping out would leave her the only Nott child not to receive her NEWTs, she continues on with her education by taking Divination, Charms, and Astronomy.

    Fall, 1886 — Leandra does her best to succeed in her NEWT classes despite multiple bumps in the road along the way. She utilized extra study sessions and tries attending Charms and Astronomy club meetings for extra help despite not being an active member. She begins hopelessly wishing she'd just gone off to finishing school rather than endure two more years of schooling!

    Summer, 1887 — The half-breed ban brings drama to Hogsmeade. While Leandra has no difficulties proving her own heritage, she has friends that do for whatever reason or another. Despite her disliking of half-breeds that stems from her upbringing, she wishes the school governors would just give it a break and let everyone attend school.

    Fall, 1887 — The Minister resigns following werewolf drama with one of his daughters, leading an election season to begin. While Leandra feels her place is away from politics, she cannot help but support Mr. Barnabas Malfoy, a man her own father holds in high esteem! While at school, she prepares for her upcoming NEWTs, which undoubtedly causes her a bothersome headache.
    Personality:
    VIBRANT. YOUTHFUL. FUN-LOVING. BOLD. PLAYFUL. BUBBLY. SUPPORTIVE. PROTECTIVE. SURPRISINGLY CONSERVATIVE. LOYAL. EAGER. SENSITIVE. RISK-TAKER. OPTIMISTIC. HOPELESS ROMANTIC.

    — Leandra holds prejudices against half-breeds, muggles & muggleborns, and members of the lower class, but she's not malicious with them, nor does she even acknowledge that there's anything morally wrong with having them. She tends to remain quiet about her political beliefs, believing herself that women have no place in politics.

    — Leandra isn't at all the academic sort, and has only stayed for her NEWTs because her other sisters did. She has the brains, but she has little patience for formal lectures and homework assignments. She's also not the most brilliant test-taker, but has always been known for trying her hardest. If it were the modern era, she'd likely have been tested for and diagnosed with ADHD.
