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.

Introverted: Tending to be trapped in her thoughts with constant worries of her future, she reflects a lot about what to do with her life.

Intuitive: She tries to think on her feet, and does try to look at the big picture of things around her before picking at the little facts.

Feeler: Other people are always on her mind when considering what she does in her life. Both when it comes to people judging what she does, and how something she says or does affects others.

Judging: Preferring to plan a lot, she works hard to get things done. Wanting to finish anything important before doing something that is more casual, she does prioritize what she does in her life.

The Good Years

1869: Her mother and father met while her father was traveling.

1870: Her mother and father got married out of love, not caring what other people thought.

1871: Acacia was born and at the time, the family is living in London.

1872: Her little sister, Chrysanta is born.

1874: Orinda is born.

The Abandoment

1876: Now a brother is born, named Dunstan. Later that year, Lisa left them because of a fight one night, resulting in Lisa almost accidently killing Martin. Leaving had seemed like the best option to keep Martin and the kids safe.

1877: As the wizarding families were exiled, Martin takes Acacia and her siblings to the safety of Hogsmeade.

1880: The young half-breed starts to grow a deep foundness of painting and reading.

Escape To Hogwarts

1882: Entering Hogwarts, Acacia is sorted into Ravenclaw.

Late 1886: Lisa tries to re-enter the Ruskin's lives, and had apparently taken up her maiden name after leaving them. Thankfully, Martin decides to take his children's feelings into consideration, as well as their reputations, and denies Lisa from coming to live with them.

The Ban

May 30th, 1887: Halfbreeds are banned from Hogwarts, and Acacia is heartbroken, having worked so hard to not cause any trouble, to have it all ruined by another student.

June 10th, 1887: In her free time, Acacia decides to start writing a book.

July 9th, 1887: Acacia, Chrysanta, and another teenage girl wre missing together while hiding from flying tigers. The sister's witness their little brother, Dunstan, die.

July 11th, 1887: The girls are found. The sisters are mourning their brother's death.

The Sudden Change

July 9th, 1887: Except... they took a different turn. The Ruskin siblings find themselves in the different part of the chaos, and lack an encounter with a flying tiger.

July 11th, 1887: The Ruskin siblings are found, and returned to their family.

The Return

January 2nd, 1888: Back to Hogwarts for halfbreeds! Acacia is not bothered one bit that she must retake her last half of the previous year.

February 16th, 1888: Acacia finds out that her mother is dead. Conflicted, she is not truly sure how she feels about this shocking news.

Summer, 1888: Magic stealing fog terrorizes Hogsmeade. Acacia is stuck outside of the fog, at the Sanditon Resort. Having been there with friends from school, she was separated from her family from most of the summer.

July 22, 1889: Acacia's old owl passes away. While she is sad, the poor thing was quite old by this time, so it wasn't very shocking.

August 10, 1889: Her father gives her a black rain frog as a companion for the coming school year.

February 28ish, 1890: She remembers Dunstan dying. Remembers how that changed her, effected her. So when she sees a Dunstan look-alike at breakfast, she is rightfully startled.

Early August, 1890: Acacia obtains an internship at the hospital after receiving her NEWTs scores.
  • Her mother is a vampire, making her a half-vampire.

  • Acacia is a respectable young woman, and tries her best to make sure her sisters are both well behaved and proper as well.
  • She will stand up for what she feels is right if need be, though is very careful and respectable about how she goes about it.
  • She deeply fears being rejected completely by society, and being hunted down and murdered.

  • Her brother sort of 'came back' from the dead. Florida Man messed with the timeline.

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.

Abilities & Skills
  • Acacia does, in fact, play several different instruments, though is quite horrible at most of them, and tends to stick to her paintings, drawings, and now writing.

  • She is a very fast writer.
School/Occupation-Related Stuff
  • Studying makes her feel more confident in her future. After the ban lifted, Acacia did feel a deep amount of stress over possibly being rusty in her work. This has brought her to studying thoroughly in the 1887-1888 school year, as well as asking for advanced work due to the fact that she has had to repeat her fifth year because of said ban.
Family Details
  • Acacia has never shown pure emotion before. She shows light bits of emotion and holds the rest almost fully in. Even as a child, ever since her mother left, she had learned to hold emotions in, letting her younger siblings show theirs without her father also having to worry about Acacia being upset.

  • The relationship between herself and Chrysanta is a complicated one. They had been close through childhood, drifted apart during Chrysanta's bratty faze during the Slytherin's first fourth year, and now have grown closer after the end of the halfbreed ban.

  • Orinda and Acacia have a more simple relationship. Acacia tries to be a guiding light, Orinda seems to want to do whatever is the opposite of what Acacia says.
The Mysteries Of Romance
  • Her sexuality is unidentified, but she does recognize a crush when she feels it... sometimes.
Miscellaneous Pile
  • When happy, Acacia can be known for actually dancing around when in private or at events that call for it. She actually really likes to dance. She probably danced when receiving her OWLs Scores in the mail.

  • This girl adores art so much that if she had the money, she would probably try to buy as much art as possible.

  • She hates nicknames. A lot. Please don't try to give her a nickname.
