APPEARANCE
At a petite five feet, one inch tall, Frida is the shortest among her sisters despite being the eldest. A late bloomer, she has only recently begun to grow into her womanly figure. She possesses many of the trademark Lestrange features: dark brown hair, brown eyes, and a pale complexion that borders ghastly when she's spooked or otherwise indisposed. Despite this, she her peachy cheeks and her natural sullen expression have a way of looking more pitiful than severe.

Never having been the type of girl to care much about the latest fashions, Frida was, until recently, all too pleased to let her Aunt Nephele dress her like a doll. She's recently become more fashion-conscious and now mimics her friends' fashion choices when not wearing school robes. She is right-handed.


PERSONALITY
LOYAL — PATIENT — FRIENDLY — NON-CONFRONTATIONAL

While no longer the meek girl she once was, Frida is a far cry from her wittier, more calculating siblings. A desire to be liked by her peers has left Frida with an unwillingness to engage in conflict, though she is more likely to take a stand if her friends are being targeted. Loyalty is her greatest strength, but also her fatal flaw: when her loyalty is given to the wrong person, she puts herself at risk for emotional manipulation. Although she's long outgrown the bigoted beliefs she was raised with, she's not immune from her own prejudices. She expresses surprise when someone from a less privileged background shows promise, and does not typically associate with members of the working class due to lifestyle differences.

HISTORY
1873 | The second child and first daughter of Orestes and Elda Lestrange is born and is promptly named Frida Sylvestra. Absent parenting means most of her time is spent in the arms of a nurse and later a nanny. She is a quiet child, and blends into the walls for most of her infancy.

1874 | Frida's mother births a daughter that's a glaring oddity in a family of dark-haired members: Gretchen Lestrange. At only fifteen-months-old, Frida barely acknowledges her sister's existence.

1876 | Another daughter, Meta Lestrange, is born into the family. At two-years-old, Frida spends her time watching the newborn with curious eyes, but is never brave enough to even cradle her sister in her arms.

1877 | The family moves to Hogsmeade, which isn't something Frida has many memories of.

1879 | Another boy finally joins the family, and he's named Klaus II. Frida doesn't really see what she can do with a brother and finds herself disappointed that she doesn't have a younger sister to play with.

1880 | Frida's first sign of magic comes when an anger-fueled burst of magic from Kristoffer causes her to disappear into the attic for a near five hours. She is discovered by servants as the sun went down, and is (embarrassingly) forced to explain the situation to her parents.

1881 | Hilda is born. Frida takes an interest in entertaining the infant... for a time. She soon grows bored with the baby, especially since ninety percent of her time is spent crying, sleeping, eating, or defecating.

1883 | Frida is given another brother, Aric Lestrange, and is more or less uninterested in his existence.

Summer, 1884 | The year intended to be spent celebrating her eleventh year turns to one of mourning. Members of her family begin to drop dead to the laughing plague that ravishes Hogsmeade in the summer. She loses both her younger brother and mother, with the latter leaving a gaping chasm in her heart. She was never particularly close to her mother, but she'd always hoped to one day be. Apart from her mother's dowry, which is to be split between the girls in marriage, Frida is left her mother's pearl necklace, a family heirloom.

Autumn, 1884 | Frida goes off to Hogwarts with cousin Seneca and is thoroughly embarrassed when the hat places in her Hufflepuff. Her brother makes fun of her, and she's too afraid to write to her parents to tell them the news (although someone—probably Kristoffer—tells them the news without her knowing, leading to an awkward letter later that week). She struggles to make friends in her house with her namesake, but enjoys going to class. She is an average student and favors book work to practical magic.

1885 | An explosion occurs at the Ministry, leaving her father dead. Now total orphans, the Lestrange siblings are split between households: the girls go to live with their Uncle Priam, while Uncle Lucius takes Kristoffer. It takes time to adapt, and her grades momentarily dip when school begins again, but she gets through it the same way she gets through everything else: pretending it does not exist.

1886 | Hilda dies in an incident with a mountain troll, which should come as another hard blow but does surprisingly not. Used to the routine of mourning, Frida goes about her life with a new morbid outlook. She adds Ancient Runes, Divination, and Ancient Studies to her schedule when school begins.

1887 | Meta is sorted into Gryffindor, shocking no one in hindsight. She makes a friend in Blythe Fairchild, who introduces her to the same Church that Uncle Priam and Aunt Nephele had taken an interest in. She begins to display more confidence and firmness with her boundaries.

1888 | Miss Fairchild's departure from Hogwarts leaves Frida feeling lonely. Her appointment as Hufflepuff prefect works wonders on her self-esteem as she works towards her OWL examinations. The year is shaping up to be a good one, but then her brother goes and steals her dorm-mate's diary and immediately publishes it for the school to see. Her friendships with her dorm-mates suffer as a result, and Frida finds herself growing more impatient with her family's antics.

1889 | With disappointing OWL results, Frida drops all but three classes from her course schedule. She endeavors to do well in her favorites: Potions, History of Magic, and Herbology. It is a quiet school year, and with more time on her hands, Frida looks to the future.

Plot Preferences:
POSTING | My posts tend to run between 80 and 300 words on average, but can be shorter or longer depending on what I'm given to work with. I prefer faster-paced threads and love rapid-fire style posting.

CONTENT LIMITS | I won't write out gory scenes or ones that depict non-consensual sexual interactions. I don't mind normal smut, but only if the relationship is established and there's a plot or character-driven need for it in a thread.

PLOTTING | I prefer organic development for romantic relationships, but have no problem pre-plotting friendships and work relationships.

THREADS | I prefer not to have basic "meet-and-greet" threads because they get tiring quickly, especially when I have twenty of them at the same time. Anyways, my favorite ships and friendships have blossomed out of wacky or traumatic action threads ;)

@Kristoffer Lestrange

There were plenty of things worse than spending the afternoon with Kristoffer. She could be dead, or her father's corpse could ascend from the pothole and strike her down on the spot. Seneca could be there for some reason, too, and the two of them could torment her to tears. See? Plenty of things.

Except, realistically, there were few things worse than being left alone with Kristoffer. It would have been easier if they were under Uncle Priam's watchful eye, or even at the Lestrange home where there was always at least one adult on her side, but her uncle and aunt had—somehow—decided that her brother was adult enough to accompany her into Diagon Alley.

He didn't seem to pleased about it, either.

"You didn't have to agree to it," she said quietly, just after he'd complained for the third time since they'd set off from Gringotts a mere two minutes ago.
