    Lucinda Vienna Beauregard
    #1
    In Character
    Full Name: Lucinda Vienna Beauregard

    Nicknames: Luce, Lucy, etcetera

    Birthdate: August 23rd, 1863

    Current Age: Eighteen Years

    Occupation: Post Office Employee

    Ugh. Puke.

    Hogwarts House: Slytherin

    Wand: Elm, 10 3/4 inches, phoenix feather, rigid

    Blood Status: Halfbloods

    Social Class: Middle

    Family: Charles Beauregard: Luce adores her daddy. When she was a child, he was the manager of a shop; eventually he joined the Ministry. Without his influence, she probably would have been a lot harsher. He reminds her of Della, a little bit.

    Edna Beauregard nee Quigley: A governess. Lucinda cares for her mother, but finds her a bit cold and thinks Edna likes the younger children better.

    Sebastian: TBD

    Phoebe: TBD

    and a shitload of cousins

    Appearance:> [Image: MeganPark_001.jpg]
    Standing about an inch above Adella, at 5'4", Lucinda is medium-sized and doesn't have much of a bosom, although she can fake it with a corset. She has blonde hair and gray-green eyes. Lucinda is left-handed in most of what she does. While she tries to keep up with the current fashion, Luce is usually a bit behind. Because Phoebe is so much younger than her, she plans on selling her hand-me-downs until her sister is closer to her height. Her nose is slightly crooked.



    History: Lucinda was stubborn from the beginning, often staying up past her bedtime just to spite whoever told her to go to bed in the first place. While her parents expected her to not get along with other children, especially family members, she is surprisingly docile around them. She bonds with her cousin Adella even though they are 'like oil and water', and reads to her baby siblings once she's old enough.


    Luce demonstrates magic at six, making a table levitate.


    From the age of seven, Luce professes that 'love is for children.' She believes in marrying only to better herself, and gets a fascination with marrying into a good pureblood family of the upper class.


    It gets even more difficult to tell Lucinda what to do as time goes on, although she will behave herself to society's expectations. She receives her Hogwarts letter in July and purchases a wand.


    ELM: Forceful presence, native dignity.

    LENGTH: The longer the wand, the stronger the personality. Lucinda's wand is a bit above average.

    PHOENIX FEATHER: Independent. However, Luce is not good at being detached, and her wand sometimes misbehaves if she is particularly emotional.

    RIGID: Lucinda is set in her beliefs.


    Following Adella's sorting into Hufflepuff, Luce is called up to the sorting hat. After a few moments, she is sorted into Slytherin. Most of her friends are from other houses, partially due to Luce's blood status, partially because of her personality.


    At the end of her second year, she picks Divination and Earth Magic as her electives. She discovers that every once in a while she is prone to making semi-accurate predictions, to her pleasure, although Earth Magic is a flop with her.


    Lucinda receives the following grades on her OWLs:


    ASTRONOMY ù A

    CHARMS ù E

    DEFENSE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS ù E

    DIVINATION ù O

    EARTH MAGIC ù T

    HERBOLOGY ù P

    HISTORY OF MAGIC ù D

    POTIONS ù E

    TRANSFIGURATION ù O


    She continues with Charms, DaDa, Divination, Potions, and Transfiguration in her sixth year. She also starts trying to find an upper-class, ideally pure-blooded husband, to no avail.


    Luce comes out in June of 1881. Still no long-standing suitors that she finds acceptable, boohiss. She starts working at the Post Office and occasionally threatens to let the owls murder her to death.


    Her NEWT scores were:

    CHARMS - A

    DEFENSE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS - E

    DIVINATION - E

    POTIONS - A

    TRANSFIGURATION - E

    Personality: An extrovert, Lucinda is genuinely nice, but stubborn, and bad at listening to people. She does not believe in love and is a social-climber, but she likes children.
