Thackeray Gamp – Father †

APPEARANCE
Hesper has dark brown hair and warm, middling brown eyes to match. She has a solemn look about her which is at odds with her youthfully round face. Her build is average and unremarkable. She's 4'8" and growing.
PERSONALITY
Hesper is a reformed brat. In her early childhood she was doted on and indulged with such severity that she was really quite unruly and demanding. Once she was turned over to her great aunt, the strictness and severity of her new environment did much to break her habits. Reformed, she is now a very serious and poised little girl who is quiet more often than not. She has mostly forgotten how to be a child and privately longs for the sort of childhood she would have had were her parents alive.

HISTORY

1878 | Hesper is born, the first living child after a series of miscarriages and still births.

1880 | After a couple more miscarriages a second child, Phaedra, is born. Her mother is left perilously weak after the ordeal and never fully regains her strength. Hesper finds the draw of attention from her to the new baby most offensive. She becomes increasingly brattish in her behavior.

1881 | Hesper is separated from her father in Diagon Alley. Worried she'll be left behind, she accidentally levitates herself ten feet in the air. It's her first manifestation of magical ability.

1882 | Her relationship with her sister remains hostile, at least on Hesper's end.

1884 | The Laughing Plague comes to Hogsmeade. The whole family takes ill aside from Phaedra. Her mother is starts to rally but her father takes a turn for the worse. It is then that the fire breaks out in Wellingtonshire. Hesper's mother, with the help of a maid, manages to rescue her daughters from the blaze but the servant who had tried to retrieve Thackeray Gamp perishes in the fire with him. Cressida Gamp against all odds survives. For a day.

Freshly orphaned, Hesper and Phaedra are sent to live with their great aunt as soon as the quarantine allows it. Upon arrival, however, Great Aunt Jessamine refuses to take Phaedra whom she thinks to be either a squib or cursed. This is on account of her remaining untouched by the plague and the child that seemingly prevented her mother from having further children, never mind that her fertility was dubious to begin with! Phaedra is sent to boarding school and prevented from returning between semesters. Having spent most of her childhood thus far at odds with Phaedra, Hesper is surprised to find herself bereft by the banishment of her sister rather than pleased. Her Great Aunt Jessamine proves to be a very strict and harsh disciplinarian, or at least the governess and servants are on her behalf. Hesper only sees the spinster but once a week. She is deprived of other children to play with and spends most of her time in lessons or confined to her room.

1888 | Hesper has changed markedly from the impudent, spirited child she was before her parents died. She hasn't seen or heard from her sister since the day she left for school.

1889 | At long last Hesper's Hogwarts letter arrives! She begins counting down the days until she's out from under Aunt Jessamine's nose. September arrives and Hesper is promptly sorted into Slytherin. Her excitement wanes a little as she realizes it's not as simple as leaving her great aunt, now she has to remember how to socialize with humans her own age.

1890 | Days before starting school again, the gardener finds a litter of kittens and offers one to Hesper. Assuming she wouldn't be allowed to keep it, she doesn't tell her great aunt and spends the last couple days of August hiding her new pet.

YOU LIKELY KNOW...
— She is an orphan.
YOU MIGHT KNOW...

YOU DON'T KNOW...

Dismal Dinner - Etiquette Years 1 & 2 The Great Hall

This class was not Hesper's favorite. It was technically easy for her, yes, but she was either incredibly bored or decidedly uncomfortable. Today was the latter. Great Aunt Jessamine had seen to it that she'd been instilled with flawless etiquette from the day she'd arrived on her doorstep. She'd picked her apart on her posture, her table manners, her tidiness of dress, her tone of voice, her gait... She'd believed Hesper's formative years in the household of her decidedly middle class nephew had been so damaging that she had to overcompensate at every possible opportunity. Consequently she held more tension in her shoulders than a marble statue.

Being surrounded by so many ill-mannered children was distressing, she couldn't stop herself from mentally picking up on every infraction and thinking of how horrified her great aunt would be. Worse still, how was she supposed to continue associating with them when she'd be replaying their embarrassing faux-pas in her head next time she spoke to them? Not that was judging them exactly, rather she had Great Aunt Jessamine's judgmental voice in her head and it wouldn't shut up. She'd much rather have been spared seeing her less refined cohorts in this way.

Hesper held her knife and fork as daintily as she could and felt heat rise to her cheeks as she cut a bite-sized piece of meat. "Have you tried the vegetables yet?" she asked her neighbor. She was trying desperately to ignore the food falling out of a nearby student's mouth.
