This would have been very disturbing anyway but then Pet's eye popped out and started rolling along the bottom of the boat. Great. Maybe she would be so fortunate as to have a kraken surface nearby and pluck her off the ship with one of its tentacles and kindly drown her. Petra Sleptova in Land, Ho!

Blood Status: Halfblood, but she has to tell people she is a muggleborn.

Residence: The back of Ollivander's Wand Shop, Hogsmeade.

Wand: Unknown


Anna Farrow (1856) - Religious Muggle Mother

Joe Farrow (1876) - Muggle Older Brother

Billie is fairly short and stands about 3 feet and 11 inches. She's awfully scrawny and gangly, but she has recently been putting on some muscle now that she's better fed. Her hair is chopped short into a messy mop of light brown with streaks of blonde. She has a very boyish and androgynous appearance. Ever since her mother threw her out, she has been dressing and generally passing herself off as male. She is very guarded about anyone finding out. Her brother, Gideon, and Quin are the only people who know. She dresses like your average working class child, and her clothing often sports tears around the knees and elbows from all of her activity. She is fairly dusty as most children are.
Billie's schooling is patchy at best, but she possesses her own sort of street intelligence, and she is very creative. Some folks would call her odd at the way she prefers the presence of animals over people, but they seem like the safer option. She isn't fond of people touching her, nor does she toss around her trust easily, but she is a very loyal friend once you get to know her. She distrusts and is afraid of women the most. Despite the cruelty of her family, she is a very kind child, even if she tends to make mistakes that might make people think otherwise. Ever since she started posing as a boy, she's felt more free and comfortable with herself. However, even she realizes that it cannot last, so she is simply enjoying life. She likes to be helpful. She loves baked goods. Her favorite color is green, and she's good at climbing.
She's befriended a part-kneazle that is either a stray or someone's wandering pet. Either way, she's named it Pounce and tries to be sure she has some sort of food for it.

She has a cat named Soot!

She wants a niffler so bad.

Her nemesis/frenemey is Jimmy Fletcher with the punchable face.

1874-1878 Anna Farrow spent much of her young life in a village not far from Hogsmeade. There, she met Thomas Farrow, the son of a smithy whom she very quickly fell in love with. With him, she has her first child, Joe. The three live happily until Joe is around 2 and Thomas is killed, hit by a carriage in the streets.

1878-1879 Thrown into grief, Anna changes, resorting to drinking and gambling. It is during that time that she is charmed by Gideon Ollivander who ends up getting her pregnant with Billie.

1879-1884Much of Billie's early years consists of them moving from place to place while Anna struggles to hold down a job.

1884 When Billie is 5, Anna finally lands a steady job as a house maid. It is then that the young girl starts to show her first bouts of accidental magic. At first, her mother brushes it off as going batty, but soon it becomes apparent that her daughter is the root cause.

1884-1887 Anna thinks perhaps she can beat the magic out of her child, but, when that doesn't garner any results, she seeks help from the church. They don't treat Billie too kindly either and encourage Anna to continue.

1887 After a certain, disastrous episode of accidental magic that ends with Anna getting into trouble with her employer, Billie is cast out. Eight-years-old and alone, the girl cuts off all her hair and acquires boys clothing so she can assume another life and find employment easier. Although an honest sort of child, she constantly ends up with the wrong crowd of friends and becomes a rat catcher. She is quite good at her profession, but it pains her to have to kill the poor animals. Once, she made the rats in someone's kitchen just disappear. Unknown to her, they were later found in the house next door.

1887-1888 She wanders on foot from village to village until she reaches Hogsmeade where she finds herself among other individuals who are also different. She scampers about town, making friends, clearing people's households of rats, and trying to start a new life for herself.

1888 She finds her father, Gideon Ollivander. It is a surprise to both of them that they are related. They keep their kinship a secret, but Billie moves into a room in the back of the shop. She starts to learn to read and grapples with this new world she finds herself in, and the reality that she probably has to return to being a girl once she's able to go to school. She continues to make friends everywhere she goes and embark on all sorts of adventures (and some misadventures).

-Billie is always enthusiastically looking for work. She runs errands, does odd jobs, gets rid of pests, etc.

-She's usually fairly dirty and rough and tumble in her play and work.

-More often than not, she's seen running instead of walking.

-She doesn't have parents/guardians actively in her life, and she lives on her own.

-She's very new to the magical world. It becomes quite apparent when new things catch her by surprise, and she goes slack jawed.

-She doesn't particularly like to be touched.

-Billie is not a boy like she pretends to be. Nor does she admit she prefers being perceived as male.

Billie is SO EXCITED for a happy Christmas that she went out of her way to try and spread an absurd amount of holiday cheer. (In her own way.) And gift people with random things she traded for, found, or made.

@Gideon Ollivander received a terrible drawing of him, her, and the two cats with the words "Mere Crismus Gidein" scrawled at the top. She struggled with what else to get him, not sure she could ever repay him for letting her stay with him. She ended up deciding on saving up money from rat catching and other odd jobs to purchase him what the person at the stall told her was a great knife. It looked pretty, anyways. It had a dragon on the handle. She thought he could use it in his wand making. (Billie also probably begged Quin to help her make him cookies or somesuch.)

@Quincey Honeyduke Billie stole borrowed Quin's hammer and constructed a lopsided wooden box with a questionable rope handle. A nice artist she knew let her sweep and do a few chores for him in exchange for his help in painting on "Sweets Supplies" on the side. Which was for the best, for it would have said 'Swet Splis' if she had done it. Inside the box is also Quin's hammer.

The Sisters Potts! Billie traded a kid she knew two bread rolls for a small, chipped up pot. With a rock, she scratched into the side of it "Potts Pot." Someone helped her spell them. Inside the pot, she planted a somewhat dead flower she'd pulled from somewhere.

@Benevolence Montague saved her from an evil plant. So, she was gifted with what some kid told her was a medal, but was actually just a bookmark.

Ginger, the Niffler, was sent the shiniest button she could find on the street. Actually, Billie went a bit overboard and sent a collection of them. @Eugene Scamander was almost forgotten in her excitement about Ginger, but then Billie remembered and sent him a mismatched, in both color and size, pair of gloves. To protect his hands in case something tries to bite him. One of them is definitely a women's glove.

The cats, Adonis and Soot, got a bed Billie made out of a fraying sack and random squishy things shoved into it.

Jimmy Fletcher got a punch to the face.

Most of the gifts are accompanied by phonetically spelled (and sometimes gibberish) notes.
