“Cheese and Crust” - an exclamation common among the lower classes. A perversion of the invocation of the name of Jesus Christ, though considered somewhat respectful for its veiling of the oath. — Bounce
Maybe a choice shade of grey - the closest thing she had to mourning clothes - as a symbolic marker that her relationship with Victor was dead.

Laurenz Mesmer [WIP]
#1
In-Character
Full Name: Laurenz Anton Mesmer
Nicknames: None
Birthdate: 22nd of December, 1848
Current Age: 44 Years
Gender: Male
Occupation: Austrian-Hungarian liaison at the Ministry of Magic; covert smuggler & fence of (usually dark) magical artifacts
Reputation: 9 - a bit of an arsehole (his covert activities are completely hidden from anyone not part of the underworld, at least for now)
Residence: Covent Garden, London
Hogwarts House: Unknown - former Durmstrang student
Wand: Aspen, 39", rigid, curupira hair (extreme size due to immense hubris)
Blood Status: Pureblood
Social Class: Upper class
Family:
Wife: Greta Florentina Mesmer (née Galishoff; 36 years old, housewife)
Son: Valentin Mesmer (14 years old, 4th year Hogwarts student)
Daughter: Theresa Mesmer (13 years old, 3rd year Hogwarts student)
Appearance: Laurenz is a rather tall man, but still on the skinnier side. He has dark brown hair and prominent dark circles around his eyes and, upon closer inspection, many wrinkles can be found strewn about his face. His hair is usually styled pushed back, and he puts great importance on dressing to impress; whatever is currently being sold on the High Street can also be found in his closet. His eyes are rather shifty, their pupils noticeably smaller than those of most other people. His expression is constantly stoic, and Laurenz has trained himself to keep it that way. The first thing anyone would notice about him, however, is his wand. Due to its unusual size, Laurenz uses it as a walking stick, carrying it in his left hand.
History:
The Early Years
1848 - 1860

Born just a few days before Christmas as the only child of a very affluent couple in Kitzbühel, Austria, there was never any doubt cast upon the fact Laurenz had a bright future ahead of him and would one day become a powerful, influential man in his own right. Laurenz grew up in the lap of luxury, never knowing hunger or the cold, always under the watchful eye and tutelage of his father, a well-known wizard who had been offered a job at the Austrian-Hungarian equivalent of the Ministry of Magic mere months after Laurenz's birth. Of course, his father accepted, and a relocation to Vienna, the Empire's capital, soon followed.

Even before Laurenz began his formal wizarding education, his father began tutoring him in matters of magic and politics. Laurenz's father was a staunch blood purist, and instilled ideas of pureblood superiority in his child early on. In accordance with blood purist doctrine, Laurenz was also taught to detest and reject muggleborns and that wizard- and humankind were not to mix; a view which would only be solidified during his schooling years, and a view he still holds today (although Laurenz, unlike his father, does tolerate half-bloods).

Personality: Vain, self-assured, stickler for protocol, secretive, short-tempered, perfectionist, manipulative
Other: Laurenz is a stellar duellist, known especially for his ruthless offensive combat and his tendency to dodge attacks rather than try to deflect them or protect himself against them with magic. He still participates in tournaments when time permits. He is also rather good at chess, but does not partake in chess tournaments.
