Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Lynette Sargent

Birthday: November, 13

Hometown: London, Great-Britain

Bloodline: Halfblood

Magical Strength (pick one): Transfiguration

Magical Weakness (pick one): Conjuring/Summoning

Year (pick two): 1st, 3rd

Biography:

Lynette Sargent had a happy childhood, mostly spent playing with her younger brother, Cal, and their cousins, the Lloyds.
 
Her father, a French muggleborn, studied at Beauxbatons until his fifth year. He indeed followed his family, when they decided to go live in Great-Britain, after an English granduncle had designated his father as his heir. Thus he studied during his two last years at Hogwarts.

Lynette's mother, Shikoba Taylor, is an American halfblood who studied at the Salem Institute of Magic. Due to her interest to her father's ancestors, the Choctaws, she learned wandless magic. After entering the MACUSA (the American equivalent of the Ministry of Magic), she was sent to England as part of a collaboration mission. There, she met Henri and soon fell under his charm.
 
Their marriage resulted in four children: the eldest, two years older than Lynette, Alan, who seems to have no aptitude for magic except in the field of divination; Lynette herself; her favorite brother Cal, one year younger than Lynette; and the baby of the family, born six years after Cal, Melvin.

Lynette has also three cousins that she considers more like siblings. Indeed, her aunt, Apolline Sargent, though she married a wizard friend of her brother, John Lloyd, was a muggle. As such, she stayed "behind" when the Time Wrap happened. As a result, Jade (about three years older than Lynette), and the twins, Lillian and William were raised with the Sargent siblings.

Apart from that, Lynette's life wasn't really affected by the Time Warp, since she was too small too remember anything from her life in the 1970s. Her father did suffer from discrimination, but she was too small to realize what was happening.

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

House Request: none

Personality:

Lynette is calm, and likes to dream and read. However,  Cal, Lillian and William can always lead her into fabulous adventures in and outside the family park (Lynette's parents and her uncle bought an old decrepit house a little outside London that Henri restored little by little when he was fired).

She is curious and imaginative. These qualities sustain her search for knowledge. but they also have their downside. For example. as she loves the feeling of knowing someone's secret, she has more than once asked tactless question, although she is learning to be more subtile. She also find the idea of conspiracy or spying very exciting fo the same reasons.

Lynette is fiercely loyal to her friends and family, but it is difficult to gain her friendship, altough she isn't shy. It is more that she sometimes seem distant and difficult to reach when she creates stories in her head.

One of her weaknesses is her laziness. Although if she really wants something, she does not allow her laziness to be an obstacle, most of the time she does not care. It shows on her messy bedrooms, and the books she leave all around the house.

Appearance:

Lynette is rather short, with brown eyes and dark hair that curls with humidity. She wishes she had the olive skin her brothers inherited from her mother, but is still glad to share this trait with her father. In fact, apart from that, she looks exactly like her mother as a child. She likes to leave her hair free or to use a hair band, but her mother repetitively forces her to do braids so that "she won't look too much disheveled". She rather like to dress up, but when playing with Cal and the twins, is often lead to do some damage or another to her dresses.
She likes to think of herself as regular, or even a little more than regular, and sneak in her parents' bedroom from time to time to put on her mother's makeup.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.

Option 2:

Lynette closed her book in a violent gesture. She was late! She had been too enthrilled into the story written by a muggle named Tolkien. It was apparently one of her Father's favorite book, and she loved how real creatures -at least for her- were transformed into the imagination of muggles. She got up, gathered her things, and began to run as fast as she could in direction of the château -Lynette was learning French with her cousins, and liked to sprinkle her thoughts and speech with French words. She seemed to be so far away! After a few minutes, she slowed down, breathless, wishing she had learned Apparition. Then she remembered that it was in fact impossible to apparate in Hogwarts .

It was at this precise moment, as she was focused on what excuses she would give the teacher -on a first day of school-, that she heard a violent noise, maybe a sneeze, a little bit behind her. Almost instinctively, she turned over, and found herself face to face with an older imposing boy. He was standing among a parterre of flowers, wearing a superior expression, although its effect was ruined by the boy's runny nose.

"Can I help you with something? It is not polite to stare."

“Hm, sorry"
Her voice sounded squeaky to her own ears. She cleared her throat nervously and tried to appear more confident.
"Do you happen to know” she searched for her schedule  "where is the potion's classroom?” She looked up to the other student, hopping for an affirmative response.
