They hadn't been thieves before, at least. Noble had not been a murderer before either. Now he was one. Did thieving make a difference, at this point?

General | Zinnia is tall like her sisters, and stands just above five feet, four inches. She has straight brown hair that can’t hold a curl to save her life, and is often found in a simple braid or twisted into a bun. Her eyes are blue. Zinnia is right handed.

Expressions | Zinnia has a very expressive face and can sometimes look like she's confused or lost in thought. Her face often shows her emotions before her voice can. She smiles a lot.

Clothing |Zin prefers muggle clothing over wizarding robes, although even then prefers her dresses to be simple over anything extravagant.

Scent | Zinnia smells of fresh florals, although it's hard to pinpoint which one.

Face Claim | Darya Yanchik


Childhood| 1868-1880| Potts Residents of Bartonburg

1868: Zinnia is born. She is the fourth daughter of the Potts family.
1870: Daffodil is born.
1873: Dahlia is born and Amaryllis is off to Hogwarts.
1874: Senna is off to Hogwarts.
1875: Calla is born.
1876: Thistle is off to Hogwarts. The same year Zinnia displays her first sign of magic when her mother’s embroidery re-stitch itself from a rose to a tulip because she likes those more.

Hogwarts Years| 1880-1887| Ravenclaw Tower

1880: Amaryllis graduates and Zinnia goes to Hogwarts and is promptly sorted into Ravenclaw. While she is excited to finally learn magic, Zinnia is also very excited to be able to take art classes alongside them. She takes a liking to using watercolors to paint the scenery around Hogwarts.
1881: Senna graduates and Daffodil joins Zinnia in Ravenclaw at Hogwarts.
1882: Thistle graduates. Zinnia has an affinity for Herbology, naturally, and chooses to add Earth Magic and Care of Magical Creatures to her roster.
1884: Aunt Myrtle dies from the Laughing Plague. Dahlia joins her sisters at Hogwarts.
1885: Zinnia finishes her OWLs and drops History of Magic and Divination. She tries her hands at watercolor portraits and she finds she likes them a lot.
1886: Zinnia continues to do well in her classes, although the fear of graduation looms in the distance. It doesn’t scare her because she’ll focus on working at the flower shop. She likes the arrangements portions more than she does the business side.

Debutante Years| 1887-| Potts Residents of Bartonburg

1887: Zinnia does well enough on her NEWTs and becomes a debutante at the coming out ball. She settles into the flower show alongside her family Calla starts at Hogwarts. The next few years fly by without much notice.
1889: With nothing truly better to do, Zin masters her animagus form sometime in the summer of 1889. A sheep. It suits her well.
1890: Senna marries in the summer. Zinnia has no prospects despite trying her hardest which is a bit disheartening, but at least the flower shop is doing well.
1891: Until the flower shop explosion in November. Luckily Zinnia was off with a friend, but she feels terrible that Calla has permanent hearing damage from it.
1892: Another year down, another year closer to spinsterhood. Zinnia focuses on the shop, the designs and working on her watercolor paintings.
Zinnia is kind but naïve, unsure of herself at times and sometimes scatterbrained. She is artistic and can often lose track of time when she is working on something.
  • Boggart: unknown
  • Patronus: bee hummingbird
  • Amortentia: Fresh florals, although the exact combination has yet to be determined
  • Animagus: lamb; there are black dots on her nose
  • Although she enjoys baking, she is terrible at it; they might actually poison or kill you if you were to consume them

  • "Behind it, her cousin was on the floor, her arm disappearing underneath the heavy counter. Millie felt her eyebrows rise with her curiosity, pressing lips together to keep herself from giggling at the moment of absurdity. Her cousin seemed to have an awful many of those." - Millie Potts
