    In-Character

    Full Name: Rhapsody Aria Harper
    Nicknames: Rhazzy, Ari, or Aria
    Birthdate: August 2, 1876
    Current Age: 11 years
    Occupation: First Year student
    Reputation: 4
    Residence: Hogsmeade/Hogwarts
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: Cherry, 9 1/2", reasonably supple, unicorn hair
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Middle
    Family: Richard Harper (Father, 34), Iona Harper (Mother, deceased), Michael Harper (brother, 13), and Rico Harper (twin brother, 11)
    Appearance: Rhapsody stands at 4'8 with long raven black hair and stormy blue eyes. She also weighs about 82 lbs. Outside of her school uniform, Rhapsody tends to wear clothes like a blouse and long skirt with comfortable shoes. Everything Rhapsody does, she does with her right hand; homework, wand waving, eating, etc.
    History: Rhapsody was born to Richard and Iona Harper on August 2, 1876. She has a twin brother named Rico. Their mother lived just long enough to bond with them and write them a letter to read when they were older before passing away almost a week after they were born. Rhapsody has an older brother named Michael. Almost a year after she and Rico were born, Hogsmeade was established. They moved in not long after. Iona was a respectable witch who married a wonderful wizard man.

    Rhapsody and her brothers grew up with only their father in Hogsmeade. The girl enjoyed her life there and was happy and healthy. Rhapsody was a little too young to understand about the deaths and disappearances of the students of Hogwarts. She was only five after all!

    It wasn't until 1884 that the "excitement" began in this young witch's life. First, was the attempted assassination and actual assassination of Minister Darcy Potter. Rhapsody was too young to understand that part except that something sad had happened. She had been more interested in the carnival that had come and the Summer Solstice!

    About mid-June of 1884, a drought was confirmed and Rhapsody ended up wanting to stay inside more. Every time she went outside, the girl felt like she had been cracking under the sun. After a wrangler at the carnival was killed, Rhapsody's father refused to let his three children back at the carnival for their safety. The nearly eight-year-old girl had been CRUSHED! On top of having as small amounts of water, they couldn't go have fun anymore!

    When five more people died from the carnival, Rhapsody's father kept a VERY close eye on his children in order to make sure they did not join the death count. As he often had to help at the Hogsmeade hospital due to his background in medicine and apothecary. Rhapsody took a slight interest in it and learned basic healing with poultices that didn't require much work or knowledge.

    When the quarantine was announced, Richard kept his children nearly locked at home as a result. Richard wasn't taking any chances! Already one of his kids were showing signs of being sick and he didn't want it to spread. Rhapsody heard of a fire but thankfully it didn't touch their home.

    The bored girl just wanted it all to end and for her to go to Hogwarts already. She wasn't even eight yet and she'd already experienced more stuff in a few short weeks than many would learn in seven years!

    Just after Rhapsody's and Rico's eighth birthday, the drought was finally declared over! They were THRILLED with this bit of news. The sickness that Michael had ended up having was just the flu and nothing overly serious as the laughing plague. Richard had to constantly be cleaned in order to not spread the possible sickness to his children.

    When the hospital had been on lockdown, Richard had stayed at the hospital, sending someone to check on his children for awhile while he helped those in desperate need in the hospital.

    When the cure was found for the laughing sickness, Rhapsody knew that her father was soon able to come home and STAY! The girl was thrilled. All the excitement was OVER and she could live a normal life again!

    Now, several years later, Rhapsody and her twin brother enter Hogwarts and she is placed in Gryffindor. Michael had gone into Ravenclaw with Rico. Richard had been a Hufflepuff with his late wife.

    Personality: [Optional.]
    Sample Roleplay Post: The last thing Optimus remembered was everything coming down around him. A beam landed on him and his world went black. While he swam in the darkness, his past came back to him in flashes. Whenever his consciousness returned, pain seared his entire being, so he blacked out once more to escape it. When he next came to, the pain had worsened due to the fact that he was being dragged. However, everywhere that Optimus looked, there was nothing but darkness.

    Had his active mind and sub-conscious mind become one? There were a few brief seconds of stillness before Optimus' optics were assaulted by light. Once his optics focused, the broken Autobot leader saw young Smokescreen standing over him with concern plastered all over his face. Upon seeing his eyes open the young warrior spoke.

    "It's alright Optimus. You're safe now."

    Optimus tried to speak, but Smokescreen stopped him. "No, don't try to talk. Just get your strength back."

    That was when the darkness claimed him once more. Smokescreen had disobeyed orders. Optimus should at least be thankful that the Matrix wouldn't fall into Decepticon hands now. Megatron had often told Optimus that he was responsible for taking Megatron's rightful power away from him. While the darkness covered Optimus' mind, he knew that there was one piece of weaponry that needed to be here with him.

    Struggling to return to the painful waking world, Optimus croaked to Smokescreen about the Forge of Solas Prime before blacking out again. This time Alpha Trion came to him. It was time to join the Well of Sparks? Optimus was about to take Alpha Trion's hand, but something yanked him back to the living.

    Smokescreen had refused to let Optimus die, opting to use the last of the Forge's power to revive Optimus despite the dying leader that Smokescreen would be the new Autobot leader. The darkness and pain cleared away and the Autobot felt his systems coming back online and open wounds repairing themselves. It was painful, but a different kind of pain. Then he was airborne, heading towards Megatron with a fiery vengeance.
