    In Character

    Full Name: Leah Adelaide Harding
    Nicknames: N/A
    Birthdate: September 23, 1864
    Current Age: 23 Years
    Occupation: Herbologist
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Montrose, Scotland
    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff
    Wand: Apple, unicorn tail hair, 10 inches, supple
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Middle
    Family:
    Father | Joseph Harding [1830] Mother | Lucy Harding nee McLeod [1836]
    Brother | Matthew X Harding [1858]
    Brother | James X Harding [1866]
    Appearance:
    Leah is decidedly average standing at a petite five foot one. Her demure stature is usually dressed in shades of brown that accent her blonde hair that falls just past her shoulders. Her skin is largely blemish free. Her eyes are blue-gray and Leah possesses well groomed eyebrows. Her hair is always styled simply and is usually decorated with either a flower or a single solid colored ribbon. She rarely wears a hat when working outside and this has caused a gentle spattering of freckles over the bridge of her nose and across her cheekbones. She is right handed.
    History:

    1864 | Leah is born the second child to the upper middle class Hardings in mid-September.

    1865 | Matthew, in his first display of magic, turns Leah green. She doesn’t remember.

    1866 | The third and final Harding child is born and named James.

    1871 | Leah displays magic.

    1876 | Leah goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. She enjoys Herbology and spends her free time in the greenhouses.

    1877 | Things happen in London just after Leah’s first year. Things are left vague and the rather private Hardings don’t do much as far as moving. The family does become a little more reclusive.

    1879 | For her third year Leah adds Care of Magical Creatures and Earth Magic.

    1881 | In the spring, Leah sits her OWLs. Her results are as follows:

    OWL SCORES
    AstronomyP
    Care of Magical CreaturesE
    CharmsE
    Defence Against the Dark ArtsE
    Earth MagicO
    HerbologyO
    History of MagicD
    PotionsO
    TransfigurationE

    She drops Astronomy and History of Magic.

    1883 | In the spring Leah sits her NEWTs. She gains the following:

    NEWT SCORES
    Care of Magical CreaturesA
    CharmsE
    Defence Against the Dark ArtsA
    Earth MagicE
    HerbologyO
    PotionsO
    TransfigurationA

    She graduates and subsequently debuts for a season. She is unhappy in this role as a debutante. Leah begins working as an amateur Herbologist, studying and growing her own flora.

    1885 | Leah considers herself a full fledged Herbologist and begins her own research into both magical and mundane plants and fungi and their applications.

    1887 | Leah has no desire to settle down, but her parents insistence is starting to become overwhelming. Her father buys her a small greenhouse to house her plants.

    Personality:
    DEMURE | Leah is very mouse-like and very awkward especially when it comes to the opposite sex. She finds more comfort in her work than companionship and her reserved nature makes human contact difficult.

    INTELLIGENT | When Leah was in school, she could be described as bookish and new quite a lot of information on what topics she was interested in which included Herbology and Potions.

    DETAIL-ORIENTED | Everything has its place and everything is always labeled correctly in her journals and in her private greenhouse!

    HARDWORKING | Unafraid of obstacles in her future, Leah trudges on without hesitation knowing that there is always an alternative to get the desired result!
