Extravert: Claire tends to act before really thinking about the consequences. She loves to have fun, and to be around others, finding it energizing and thrilling.

Intuitive: Liking creativity over practicality, she always enjoys learning and participating in new things. Adventure calls to her, and she’s very much ready to listen. Noticing anything new or different, she can be quite fascinated with new ideas and her instincts.

Feeler: Typically listening to her feeling a bit more than reason, she sometimes take a few things a bit too personally. A warm and friendly person, she truly enjoys making friends.

Perceiver: Always up for fun and adventure, she doesn’t care much for responsibility. Rules feel more like walls that tend to get in her way, walls that she dreams to climb over.
Amortentia: She has no clue.

Patronus: Not one clue.

Boggart: Possibly her, older, with the spark of her spirit for adventure gone from her eyes.

Hogwarts Clubs: History and Music in Choir

Star Sign: Aries

Hobbies: Pranking, seeking adventure, playing with her twin, and exploring her father’s study.

Pets: A toad named Darrow, in honor of the captain whose boat she and Cele stowed away on. And a bunny that she shares with her twin. The bunny is named Lady, after a kind lady that helped her find it.
Pre-Twins: Momma and Papa marry, but a couple months later, tragic events strike the family. A fire burns down Damien Bénet’s childhood home in France. Sadly his parents and only sibling, his sister, did not make it out of the fire. Everything in France makes him think of his lost family. After his mourning period is officially over, he and his wife decide that it is best to leave France for a new beginning. London, England is made their new home. A few months later, Sarah is with child (children, actually).

1877: The twins are born, all is right with the world. That is, until the riots. However, the family waits to move because of the twins, and their mother, whom is still recovering.

1880: Mama and Papa decide that it is better for the family that they still move to Hogsmeade, especially now that the twins are older now. That and they could be showing signs of magic in a couple of years, and the couple doesn’t wish to risk such things being seen by muggles.

1884: Claire is very upset by the fact that Céleste gets the Laughing Plague. After the twin recovers, Claire even more protective of her.

1887: A friend of Claire and her twin, Luce Faucher-De Loncrey goes to Hogwarts. Claire is saddened that their age difference stops the twins from joining. Mama and Papa are starting to wonder if Claire is a squib, given that she has yet to having shown any signs of magic. Papa is not very concerned, but Mama is.

April 22, 1888: Claire and Cele stow away on a ship, in search of adventure.

April 26, 1888: Their disappearance is announced in the Daily Prophet.

April 29, 1888: Assumptions regarding the disappearance of the twins are made on Witch Weekly.

May 1, 1888: Claire is the first of the twins to be discovered when she falls overboard and her first sign of magic finally appears, as she starts floating into the sky... and doesn't stop. After being rescued as her screams woke most of the crew in the middle of the night, Cele also reveals herself when she comes out to find Claire floating in the air.

At first the twins pretend to only speak French in the hopes of not being sent back home so early into this fantastic adventure. But it doesn't work, and they are sent home as soon as possible.

May 7, 1888: News of them being found is published in the Daily Prophet. Only the twins really seem to be pleased by all of this. But it was all in good fun for the two girls.

May 13, 1888: Readers of Witch Weekly send in their own opinions regarding twins, and there are mentions of Claire and Cele.

June 18, 1888: Claire makes friends with a strange girl in the park during the fog. What she doesn't know is that this girl is actually a vampire. They play tag.

September 1, 1888: The twins are off to Hogwarts, both being sorted into Gryffindor.

May 28, 1889: Cele dies in a potion accident, in an attempt to prank the attendees of the Coming Out Ball. Claire was not with her during this.

May 29, 1889: The death is announced in the Daily Prophet as well as at school.
  • She and her twin stowed away on a ship. She's quite proud of this, and tells almost everyone she meets.

  • Both twins are known for pranking, though are very kind.

  • The Bénet family is from France. Having moved to London shortly before Mrs. Bénet was with children. This move was caused by Mr. Bénet's family dying tragically in a fire, though the actual move was respectfully after the mourning period.

  • Cele died of a potion gone wrong in May 28, 1889, attempting to prank the Coming Out Ball attendees.
  • Her mother is not amused by the twins mischief, though their father slightly is.

  • Mother is a purist, but father isn't. This does cause some conflict.

  • Claire is not a purist, though has never really asked her twin regarding such views.
  • Claire is friends with a creepy kid vampire that lives in the woods.

Plot Preferences: Personally, I love making plots. I like planning things out. However, I'm also willing to plan things out, to then ditch the plan completely if the muse takes me and those I thread with in another direction. My characters tend to do as they please, leaving me wondering what on earth I just typed. Trying to make them do something that they will not naturally do seems strange, and won't work the way that the plan was supposed to.

"Mature" content does not bother me in threads. Language and violence don't bother me (though if we are gonna do smut, there has got to be a good reason for it happening at all and I would prefer if we fade-to-black). However I'm not comfortable doing these things if it would not be something that my character would do, and/or if it is not for plot development.

For me, I like to try to type as much as my muse will allow. Typically I try to match with the other poster, if not posting more. I do not expect anyone to have to match my post word count if their muse does not call for it.
