    Minnie Pendergast
    Full Name: Wilhelmina Pendergast

    Nicknames: She is known to one and all as Minnie however as she gets older the childish nickname is becoming increasingly abhorrent to her.

    Birthdate: 23rd April 1865

    Current Age: 17

    Occupation: Student - Seventh Year.

    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff.

    Wand: 16 inches, mahogany with dragon heart-string core. She has always felt like her wand was far too powerful for her but her teachers assure her she'll grow into it; Minnie is right handed.

    Blood Status: Pure blood.

    Social Class: Upper class.

    Reuben Pendergast û Father
    Atalanta Pendergast û Mother
    Emma, Walter and Samuel Pendergast û Siblings

    John and Helena MacMillan û Aunt and Uncle
    Edward, Charles and Elmer MacMillan û Cousins

    Philip and Olivia Pendergast û Aunt and Uncle
    Regan, Winifred, Evelyn, William, Rosalind and Ellory Pendergast - Cousins

    Appearance: Minnie is not considered as attractive as her older sister by some, however, there are plenty that would rank the sisters the other way around. With long shiny dark hair that curls just right whenever she wears it loose and a figure that has recently filled out to become more womanly Minnie Pendergast will not go unnoticed for much longer. She has big dark eyes and smiles at every opportunity, charming any and all that she meets with her engaging eyes and smile. She has inherited her mother's height, just as Emma has, and stands at 5'8, much taller than a lot of other girls her age and it has taken her till now to grow into her height and stop being quite so gawky. Minnie is a girl on the brink of being a woman and very soon she will discover her own appeal through someone else's eyes.


    23rd April 1865: Born the second child and youngest daughter of Atalanta and Reuben Pendergast her birth marked a time of relief for her mother û that she could have more children at all û and disappointment for her father who was desperate for a boy. Despite that Reuben soon got used to his boisterous and happy child and Minnie never once sense anything other than love coming from him and always felt doted upon.

    18th July 1870: Shows first signs of magic on her mother's birthday when her parents seem more interested in the new baby than then picture she has drawn for her mother and she makes Samuel come out in green spots.

    September 1876: Minnie attends Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff house like her mother before her. It is here that she first meets and befriends Ivy O'Neill who will be her lifelong friend despite being lower class; occasionally Minnie forgets and puts her foot in it a bit but Ivy always forgives her.

    September 1882: Enters her final year at Hogwarts, not at all sure what she intends to do once her education ends. She could be married off like Emma of course, but the thought of being tied down in society so soon scares her.

    Personality: Minnie considers herself a wholly unremarkable person. Raised by nannies and nurses, along with a generous helping of her affectionate mother and a father who, despite his attempts to remain aloof was charmed by his most energetic child, Minnie has never had any reason to feel alone or unloved and therefore loves others in her turn. Unlike her father she is no blood purist, however, she still found it difficult when she first went to school to reconcile the attitude she had been raised with to the exciting new people she was meeting. She doesn't defy her parents as such, but she is aware that their ideas are perhaps not always the right ones: her mother's heritage of extreme liberalism doesn't appeal to her in the slightest but neither does the Pendergast tradition of blood purism, especially considering who her best friend is.
