    Alexandra Seymore

    In-Character

    Full Name: Alexandra Elizabeth Seymore
    Nicknames: Lexie
    Birthdate: June 6th, 1868
    Current Age: 19
    Occupation: Department of International Magical Cooperation. Fluent in English, French, Spanish, Latin, and Goblin, amongst partial knowledge of various other worldly tongues.Completed one year of internship, now shifting into the role of a translator.
    Reputation: 4. She's escaped chaperones a time or two in her budding youth.  
    Residence: Bartonburg, Britain
    Hogwarts House: Former Gryffindor
    Wand: 7 3/4" Holly with Ashwinder Ash
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Middle Class
    Family: Widowed Father and 3 Elder Brothers
    Appearance: Alexandra might be petite of stature at 5'0", but she's always had far more voluptuous assets than her height can handle. In fact, her alluring appearance is often deemed inappropriate by the simple fact that even corsets can't seem to keep the 'ladies' well behaved. With a figure more suited to a house of ill-repute, she's had to work twice as hard as the girls in her year to prove herself a proper lady of breeding. Blonde, powdered blue eyes, buxom, and practically busting from her well-tightened seams all around, the only thing that truly lends a hand to her cause is her inherent innocence. She's never even seen a man without his shirt, let alone lacking a single stitch of clothing. Merlin's beard, that would be awful.
    History: Nothing notable, aside from the death of her mother when she was three, though she doesn't recall much of her. For her, it does not do to dwell on the misfortunes of the past when there's more important things to focus on in the future. Most specifically, the fact that she is the only girl among four healthy, vivacious children. Three elder brothers, not a lick of whom helped her in the behaving like a lady department, much to her father's dismay. This being only her second year post matriculation at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, she finds herself with a Department of Magical Cooperation position at the Ministry and without much hopes of a suitor. Though, between you and me, she isn't searching all that hard... and hopefully her skillful tongue won't get her into situations too lurid for her demure and reserved sensibilities.
    Personality: She has a cheeky sense of humour, which only compounds her problems in well behaved society. Often times things slip from her tongue that are far too forward and suggestive, while she may not even be aware she's doing so at all. She hasn't quite mastered the speaking when spoken to concept, nor can she properly fold her legs at the ankle given her short legs. She's a mess of a girl, really. All spunk and absolutely no proper place to direct it. She wants to do well by her father and their family name, but... what harm could it really do to kick up her skirt, mount a broom, and race off with the boys towards the goal hoops, hm?

    Sample Roleplay Post: Alexandra cleared her throat audibly, though passed it off as a mild tickle. What the foreign dignitary had just whispered to his cohort under the assumption that she only spoke the translating language in question, was hardly appropriate in regards to the Deputy they were here to negotiate terms with, let alone a young lady of just 19. Head ducked and eyes raptly fastened to the ornate carpet beneath her feet, she vowed to wait for the signal that her services were needed once more before she uttered another distracting sound. She'd be questioned later, and would be asked to disclose everything uttered in whatever language she could hope to decipher, but... did the Deputy Minister really wish to know that the French ambassador thought them a... a... no. Just the word was too difficult to think, let alone utter aloud. They'd have to use veritaserum, and even then, she'd resist with all her might. Being privy to the true nature of men when they thought her incapable of understanding was hardly motivation to find a suitor of her own, despite the closing window of opportunity to do so.
