Meddlesome mother, but make her a squib <3
The thought of marrying Cecily Gallivan had occurred to Fitz in the way that the thought of marrying any attractive young lady did: a firm maybe and a hasty step away to more pleasurable topics, like sport or brandy.Fitzroy Prewett in Well. That took a turn.

Venusia Crickerly

Full Name: Venusia Jennifer Crickerly

Nickname(s): Crick, sometimes, in conversation. Ven is the only other thing she's been called she doesn't hate

Birthdate: May 9th, 1875

Age: 15

Occupation: Student

Blood Status: Pureblood

Residence: Wellingtonshire

Hogwarts House: Slytherin

Wand: Fir, 9", phoenix feather, flexible

Thatcher Crickerly | Father | b. 1820-25
Venusia's father, Winston is a second son who was able to craft a fortune by 1) marrying well on the continent and 2) having a moron of an older brother. He raises his children to be reasonable and clear-minded. Having been iffy on the Italian town for his daughter, he most often calls her Jennifer.
Donetta Crickerly nee --  | Mother | b. 1830-35
An Italian native, Venusia's mother insisted on naming her daughter after her hometown. A generally kind and competent woman, Donetta has never been a society standout, but does participate.
Merrill Crickerly | Brother | b. 1880
Venusia's much younger brother, Merrill received a very normal name and is excited to go to Hogwarts next fall.

Darwin Crickerly | Uncle | b. 1815-1820
Venusia's uncle, Darwin has always had a bit of "a problem" with his finances; he's not a gambler, but does have a tendency towards bad luck, and investments go poorly. He's still in the upper class, but is hanging on by his nails.
Lorna Crickerly | Cousin | b. 1873ish
Lorna Crickerly is best described as "extremely fucking stressed" about her upcoming debut.
  Maxwell Crickerly | Cousin | b. 1875
Most of what can be said about Max is that he and Venusia are the same age.
Venusia stands a little above average for a girl at 5'4"; she appears to have stopped growing, but it's possible she has another inch in her. She's a skinny thing, all sharp edges, and has dark hair and freckles. Her eyes are brown like her mother's, and she's right handed. She usually wears neutral colors - rarely things that would have her stand out - and her wavy hair is kept up in simple styles.
  • Fluent in Italian, and proficient in French.
  • Feminine Arts: Other than general etiquette, Crick is distinctly below average in the feminine arts. (Unless you count 'weaponized gossip' as a feminine art.)

BEFORE: While wintering on the continent for his work in finance, Thatcher Crickerly meets an Italian debutante and is immediately in love (with her and her dowry.) They begin courting, marry in Florence, and move back to Britain a few years later.
1875-1880: After difficulties getting and staying pregnant, Donetta gives birth to Venusia. A quiet and undemanding child, Crick is a happy toddler who takes after her father in temperament. At three, she demonstrates magic by causing a trinket in his study to spin. When she's five years old, her brother Merrill is born, finally providing Darwin with an heir.
1881-1885: Over years of spending Christmas and New Year's at the Crickerly country house together, Venusia and her cousin Max develop a bit of a rivalry. Venusia develops a bit of a complex about being smarter than the people around her.
1886-1887: It's time! Venusia goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin. While some would think her a Ravenclaw (like her father,) the drive for her intelligence isn't intelligence's sake - it's outsmarting other people. She's an apt student, and becomes friends with a few boys in her year, like Elijah Urquart.  She also develops friendships with girl students, but more because she sees other upper class students doing so than because of a real interest.
1887-1888: In her second year, Venusia starts providing homework help to those who ask for it - as long as she can trade them for something. She's interested in being the best, and mostly trades in information.
1888-1889: Crick takes on Ancient Runes and Arithmancy as her electives.
1890: Crick is not made a prefect, which is not entirely surprising to her. In the first term of her fifth year, she very quietly starts to think that she might like to be an auror.
  • Her father is the much better Crickerly brother; her mother is Italian.
  • Venusia is friends with boys as well as girls.
  • Venusia offers homework help, but for a trade.
  • Venusia's uncle is having semi-public financial difficulties.
  • Venusia wants to be an auror.

Crick took a sip from the bottle before she answered, and passed it on to Wildsmith. The scotch burned on its way down, but in a good way.

"As a counterpoint," she raised, "I no longer want to take classes with the stupid." She understood Elijah's point, but there were some children in their year who she would prefer to avoid, as well - and once they had taken all their OWLs, she would only be in NEWT classes with people who were up to snuff.

And she was always a little harsher, around the boys; it was a nice change of pace from the chatter she found herself doing around her female going-to-be-debutante friends.
