Meddlesome mother, but make her a squib <3
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.

PERSONALITY
Stubborn, bossy, she's very forthright and loud with her own opinion. She doesn't understand the point of secrets or doing things secretly and very much an open book with her intentions. She will say whatever is on her mind and will rat out other people's misdeeds with a you did it own up to it philosophy.

A rather brash girl she doesn't understand gentle approaches, sarcasm or subtext and will dive into problems and meet them head on. She likes to win, and be the best but will never cheat (or if she hears of cheating will immediately DOB them in), preferring to put in the hardyards. She is intelligent however booksmarts and appetite for knowledge very rarely mean wisdom. She is a perfectionist and likes to overachieve however is often hampered by the fact she tries too hard and will overcompensate in her attempt to overachieve and instead accidentally go to far or take things far too seriously.

Starsign : Virgo

Numbers and Planets : Those born on the 19th of the month are ruled by the number 1 (1+9=10=1+0=1) and by the Sun. Those ruled by the number 1 like to be first, tend to be ambtious and dislike restraint. Because of the fact that september 19 people are born on the first day of virgo-libra cusp which is influenced by both mercury and venus (virgo and libra), there is inevitably a strong thrust in their lives to shine brightly in the world, and to harness their mental energies to produce beautiful things.

Tarot: The 19th card of the major Arcana is the sun. It can be considered the most favourable of the Major Arcana cards and symbolises knowledge, vitality and good fortune. It does, however suggest negative traits of pride, vanity and false appearance.

HISTORY

Childhood

1878 | Greta is born, a second child. Her toddler brother does not take it well.

1880 |She is two when her father perishes after becoming infected at his own practice, leaving the family with financial difficulties. Her family temporarily move into the home of their mother's eldest sister, leaving her mother with time and resources to secure a position of her own. She eventually becomes the governess of a nearby wealthy family, and Greta and her brother spend their time under the watchful eye of their aunt.

1881 | An argument ensues between her mother and aunt after she accidentally calls their aunt "Mummy" while her actual mother is in the room. Upset and overwhelmed by the yelling, Cameron shatters a set of china in dining room, marking his first sign of magic. Greta, only three does not understand the importance or how this action made him different from normal people.

1886 | Cameron receives his Hogwarts acceptance letter, shocking the entire family. Greta is eight and all she really understands is that this means that her brother is different and is going to be going away to school. She doesn't really get it but his acceptance to Hogwarts would open her to the idea that magic who all her peers are starting to believe doesn't exist as they grow up is very real. When she asks if she will be going away to school when she is old enough she is told that it's a Cam thing and that he's unique and different and they don't think so.

1887 | Cam returns from school with fantastic stories and Greta gets jealous. She to make herself as unique as possible and becomes a little difficult to be around as she grows quite forthright and bossy. The boys and girls in her class do not appreciate it and she gets a reputation for being very talkative and a tattler. A physical confrontation between the boys about her tattling to the teacher ends in literal magical sparks that scares the boys off but Greta cant recreate the magic and ends up thinking she was seeing things.

1889 | Greta's mother remarries into a wizarding family and Greta finds herself the only non-magical child of the household and she does not like it. She often finds herself left out amongst her Quidditch mad siblings especially when their brooms do not respond her (when she secretly tries mimic them). She makes it her mission however to learn all she can about magic because even if she cannot do it she still wants to impress people with her knowledge following the can't do teach philosophy.

1890 | Having grown more stubborn and bullheaded she refuses to listen to her mother's gentle reminder that it doesn't matter if she's not magical and that there is another path for her. It turns to be all for naught as she recieves her letter to Hogwarts and is able to attend with her family. She later goes to the World Quidditch Cup - and witnesses the death of spectator in an event that would come to have bludgers, and beaters, banned from Hogwarts games.

Hogwarts

1890 | P2 - Greta is sorted into Gryffindor but her strict nature (even stricter upon herself) leads to friction since she finds herself unable to bend and bow to others and her perfectionism leaves her disatisfied with her own work as she strives for that ever elusive perfect and she makes silly mistakes in an attempt to overcompensate.

1891 | The Gillenwater-Bell family relocate from Godric's Hollow to Irvingly and purchase a nice house in Swallowsbury. They have a party with friends and family to celebrate.
