It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

One day soon Holly Scrimgeour would be launched on a society that was, Connie suspected, in no way prepared for her. She almost pitied the young men but honestly she was mostly hoping she was still around to see her not-so-secret favorite student decimate all before her with the simple act of being cleverer than any of them could hope to be." - Connie Sykes

With pin-straight blonde hair, striking blue eyes, and fairly symmetrical features, Holly might be considered pretty—if she didn't always wear a scowl on her face. Even at her short five feet, one inch height, she carries herself with an air of superiority.

Her hair is always tied back into the tightest bun she can manage with a neatly-looped black ribbon and with every stray hair smoothed into place. Black remains a staple of her wardrobe after years spent in mourning on-and-off, with the deepest forest green the next most common color. Long gone is her childhood love of frills and girlish accessories—now she prefers a practical wardrobe, her mother's silver locket the only jewelry she wears. She is right-handed.
1875 | Holly is born the fifth child (and fourth living following the death of her brother a decade earlier!) of Hadrian and Margery Scrimgeour. A loud and demanding child, her parents shuffle through different nannies before finding one that can actually soothe her.

1876 | Less than a year following Holly's birth, her mother gives birth to a set of twins. Sadly, the strain on her body proves too much, and she dies of complications within days.

1877 | Muggles riot after magic is revealed to their population. The Scrimgeour family move to Hogsmeade, more so because their desire for magical neighbors than a fear of muggles.

1881 | Holly's father dares remarry—and to a woman five years older than her eldest sister! Even at four years old, Holly does not appreciate her presence in the household.

1882 | Holly's first sign of magic appears during a petty argument with her step-mother.

1884 | The most crushing month of her life takes place when the laughing plague offs all of her elder siblings. Stephana, Philippa, Virgil, and even Emilia are buried in a joint funeral.

1885 | Holly's step-mother dares give birth to a baby and doesn't have the decency to die. He's apparently named Wilton, and Holly spends the weekend complaining to Cousin Cissa about the fact that she now has a little brother. She thinks he's ugly and squirmy and ugh.

1887 | Holly is finally freed from the prisons of her house and is allowed to go off to school with Camille and Cousin Cissa. Holly and Cissa are sorted into Slytherin, while Camille is sorted into Gryffindor. Quickly finding a love for her academics, Holly throws herself into various extracurricular activities and even contests when the time comes. She places second in her age bracket at the potion-brewing tournament as well.

1888 | Holly finds a friend in the Slytherin matron and struggles with her identity. She decides to becoming more morally upstanding, but struggles to overcome her temper and standoffish attitude. When scandal finds its way into her extended family, Holly withdraws into herself and finds herself more on-edge than ever.

1889 | The beginning of her third year means the addition of three new classes to her roster: Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, and Care of Magical Creatures. The year is wholly boring and even lonely. With a love for her new electives, Holly finds herself worrying about what her post-OWL schedule might one day look like.

1891 | Her step-mother and younger brother are die in the sinking of a ship. Holly enters mourning once again, but she secretly delights in her step-mother's death—but less so her brother's. She continues through her fifth year, trying not to focus on the changes at home and more on her upcoming OWLs.

1892 | Holly completes her fifth year and spends the summer fretting about her scores. It turns out she had little to worry about—of all her classes, all were Os and Es. When it comes time to choose classes for sixth year, he decides to continue with Defence Against the Dark Arts, Charms, Transfiguration, Potions, Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, and Astronomy.
Holly has always been something of a bully. In her younger years it was a cry for attention and a need to feel powerful aftercoming from a less than ideal homelife. She's never been afraid to speak her mind—even to her superiors, which has earned her more than one detention during her time at Hogwarts. She carries herself with an air of haughtiness and rarely considers the feelings of others unless they've earned her respect.

Much less obvious is how sensitive she truly is. When her feelings are hurt she tends to respond with anger, spewing insults and hurtful comments until she feels less powerless. Guilt is her constant companion; even though she does not make any attempts to stop being so awful to everyone, she secretly feels bad about it. In some twisted way, she feels she deserves to be disliked, which is why she rarely makes an attempt to make amends with people she's previously quarreled with.
  • Languages: English, French.
  • Feminine Skills: A half-decent singing voice, but no musical talent whatsoever. She thinks most feminine pursuits are silly wastes of time, but in recent years has taken up embroidery for the sole purpose of personalizing her robes and dresses.
  • Magical Abilities: An excellent duelist and potioneer. She's considered pursuing spell inventing in the future.

  • Patronus: TBD.
  • Amortentia: TBD.
  • Boggart: A disappointed Connie Sykes turning her back on her.
  • Despite being raised a blood purist, she's capable of overlooking her own beliefs when it's convenient.
  • Holly is a lesbian. She is not yet aware of this.
