Standing at 5’2 Gretchen is skinny and will likely remain so until childbearing gets to her hips. She stands out amongst her family with her honey blonde hair, though the dark eyes are pure Lestrange. She enjoys fashion well-enough but would much prefer to wear the darker, more sophisticated tones she sees on certain society ladies rather than the much more girlish clothing her aunt insists on dressing her in.
Thoughtful, quiet and cunning Gretchen gives extremely little away and it is rare anyone knowns what she is thinking. A blood purist at heart she can adapt when needed and if someone is of use to her she will happily overlook their pedigree for as long as it suits her to do so. Pragmatic and caustic Gretchen has lived a life of privilege that absolutely nothing will induce her to give up.

+ Privately she doesn’t much mind uncle Priam but thinks aunt Nephele is pathetic. She could also do without her irritating step-cousins.
+ Gretchen considers her cousin Senena to be her best friend.

1874: Scarcely nine months after the birth of Orestes and Elda Lestrange’s first daughter another is born and is a mixed disappointment. With a son and a daughter in the nursery the Lestranges had hoped for another of the former, but if they had to have another daughter this blonde, delicate creature is more than acceptable. Gretchen is a happy, coddled baby and like every other Lestrange is entirely cared for by the nanny.

1876: Meta is born. Gretchen has no recollection of this and takes delight in telling Meta this to compound how unimportant she is to her. the second part is a lie.

1877: Like so many others the family move to Hogsmeade following the revelation of magic to muggle society.

1879: Klaus II is born. Gretchen has little interest in him as she is busy being the boss of Meta in the nursery, tyvm.

1880: One day, quite out of the blue, Frida vanishes entirely from sight for several hours. Gretchen is mostly unconcerned with this but while the household staff are occupied she takes the opportunity to sneak away upstairs to the parts of the house she is not permitted to go in. Faintly she hears a voice calling and, recognising that her sister is calling for help, she promptly leaves her there.

1881: Hilda is born. Hilda is pointless.

1882: Kris is shipped off to Hogwarts and Gretchen sees, and immediately assimilates, how pleased her parents are that he is sorted into Slytherin.

1883: Aric is born. Her parents joy at another son is faintly insulting.

1884: The first half of the year passes without much incident but in the summer calamity strikes. Aric, Elda and Granny Silvia all perish in the laughing plague. It is not until sometime after that Gretchen begins to recall that her mothers symptoms did not match the other two’s, but by then the house has burnt down so she can be forgiven for being a tad distracted. Later that year Frida goes off to Hogwarts and, typically, is sorted into Hufflepuff.

1885: Orestes dies in an explosion at the Ministry and even Gretchen begins to wonder if they’re cursed. Kris is sent to live with uncle Lucius while the girls are sent to uncle Priam – she finds the two men much of a muchness but dislikes the latter’s wife – though it doesn’t matter too much as in the autumn she goes to Hogwarts for the first time and is promptly sorted into Slytherin. She would have expected nothing less and likes to believe her father – and Granny Silvia whom she actually did love – are proud of her.

1886: Hilda dies. Hilda is still pointless.

1887: Meta is sorted into Gryffindor. Gretchen is abso-fucking-lutely horrified but internalizes her rage. At least she doesn’t have to see half-breeds any more, though she is considerably less vocal about her pleasure than others.

1888: Gretchen's fourth year is largely dull. Her sister is prefect and her brother is Not Head Boy, a fact that gives her no small amount of pleasure.

1889: Another year dawns and Gretchen has every intention of showing up as many people as possible in her upcoming OWLs.

+ Gretchen and her surviving sisters live with their uncle Priam following the death of both their parents in various disasters. Their older brother Kristoffer lives with another uncle.
+ She is cool and calm where most of her family are...not.

+ Underneath her exterior she is far more calculating than others give her credit for. A true stealth Lestrange.

+ Her father murdered her mother.
+ She might like girls. Try not to be too surprised.
+ She is the only person at Hogwarts that knows George Waterford is biologically female.

Tbh I still think the two least believably British things in the entirely Harry Potter universe are that anybody supports West Ham and that every single dramatic incident, up to and including the moment Harry defeats Voldemort, isn't immediately followed by at least one person saying "Do you fancy a cup of tea?"
