    In-Character


    Full Name: Sophia Rose Morland 

    Nicknames: Soph 

    Birthdate: March 3rd, 1870 

    Current Age: 17 

    Occupation: 7th Year Student 

    Reputation: 3

    Residence: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. Seasonal holidays in Bulgaria.

    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor

    Wand: 10 1/2" Rosewood with veela hair, springy

    Blood Status: Pureblood

    Social Class: Upper Class

    Family: Orphaned, with only a distant Uncle Viktor, who doesn't want much to do with her or her offending personality.

    Appearance: 5'3", hazel eyes with honeyed irises, athletic build, fiery amber hair that bounces in relaxed, natural curls.

    History:As requested, she is to be Mundungus MacFusty's rival, instituted their shared third year. Upper class and pureblood and practically swimming in Galleons, Sophia quite literally was born with the world at her feet, despite having parents who were quite uninterested in having had a daughter, let alone that ending up being their only child. Despite their best efforts to conceive a son, they failed. After being told by the doctor it was unlikely she would conceive again after such a trying pregnancy and difficult birth with her daughter, Sophia's mother became despondent and distant at having failed her husband in procuring a son to carry on the family name. Their untimely demise in an unfortunate house fire late one winter's eve ought to have rocked Sophia to her core given how young she was, but she was awfully perceptive for a child. She knew she was unwanted. From that moment on, she vowed to be exactly the type of woman her parents would truly be disappointed by, and hasn't looked back since. With just an absent Uncle Viktor in Bulgaria to call her own, she raised herself for the most part, living day to day on the sizable inheritance left behind. She believes she needs nothing and noone, and she'd prefer to keep it that way, no matter how many times her gut has told her otherwise, in private.



    Personality: Feisty is an understatement when it comes to Sophia. She has absolutely no redeemable qualities that would put her in high ranking in any sort of social circle, as a woman. Her class is based solely on the wealth she inherited as sole heir to her deceased family's fortune, and her distant Uncle Viktor can't seem to reign her in to save his failing life. She's unabashedly flirtatious when the situation calls for it, though if any Quidditch topic is put on the table, not even a Grecian Adonus could break her one-track minded focus. She knows exactly what she wants out of life, and she isn't going to let any class, culture, or creed tell her otherwise.

    Sample Roleplay Post:Pacing just beside the bulletin board centrally fixed in the commons, she was damned near wearing a tread into the maroon carpet with how anxiously she moved back and forth. This was her third year. THIRD YEAR, trying out for the house team, and not once had the powers that be saw fit to put her on the roster. Not that girls had ever historically made the house team, but this was absolutely ridiculous. She could take half of the current players on at once, with a hand tied behind her back and a leg tucked up under her broom, no less. They had no reason whatsoever not to recruit her, save for what she possessed between her legs. Not that any of them had seen proof, mind you. It was just their excuse. The current Captain sweeping ahead of her without even so much as a sidelong glance, she sneered at him behind his back, tempted to offer him a less than kind finger in parting, but was far too distracted by the name she could see right at the top, even at this distance. Mundungus. That. Lousy. Git. Ears pouring steam akin to a teapot that's been left to boil over, she cast a narrowed eyed gaze toward his dormitory. What were the chances she could scratch that out before he loped his way down and became an even more insufferable thorn in her side?
