Strength and weaknesses (details please):

Strengths
Phaedra is very smart and an avid and dedicated writer and resercher. Whether it be in her prefered fields of Astronomy and Alchemy or a different subject of interest, she will always investigate and report her finding thoroughly. She is a timid but friendly character and, despite her appearence she is very approachable and easy to talk to - but she is by no means a walk over. Bullying in her early education and an lifetime of judgemental looks has made her thick skinned and tolerant to ridicule and mockery. Mostly, her strengths are mental and emotional, as physically she is rather graceful, feminine and lacking in strength, confidence and athleticism.

Weaknesses
She is a very solitary/indipendant individual who prefers the comforts of knowledge to the comfort of socialisation, a thus can come across as a bit of a loner and perhaps an easy target at times. Although one of her strengths was her thick skin, she doesn't do greatly well with face to face confrontations and tends to shy away from problems or arguments with other people. Apart from the obvious physical weaknesses, Phaedra's main weakness is communication, her lack of friendships have made her unable to trust easily and she can become very suspicious of people who are 'overly' nice towards her.

Physical description:
Phaedra is from Romanian decent and inherited her familys dark features and olive skin. Her hair is jet black and lies, often in long loose waves down past her shoulders (but in public she tend to wear it up with accessories). Traveller traditions and rites of passage have left her body almost completely tattooed. Her dress sense along with her make-up, is often dark and gothic yet graceful. She will only wear dresses or skirts as part of her upbringing, and this is usually accompanied with victorian style tops and a vast array of talismans and odd jewellery.

Personality (nice, rude, funny etc. Paragraph please.):
Phaedra is a charcter full of odd quirks. She is friendly but not very trusting, particularly of people she believes are overly nice to her. So on first meeting her, if you're not a student expect her to sit pretty and stay silent. Once a certain degree of trust is accomplished, she will be a great friends and is great at giving advice to others. Because of her upbringing she is very tidy in appearence and in general, she is an avid reader and enjoys long walks outdoors on clear nights and is an avid animal lover. She likes to be dramatic, and ephasise her natural creepiness so it works to her own advantage, it is a defense mechanism to help her not get to close to people. She is a strict Professor but for certain students she will drop her guard and show her more gentle side. Her pet peeves are when students drum thier fingers on desks, people who crease the spine of a book when reading and nail biters.

Hopes and dreams. Why are you teaching at Hogwarts?:
Despite the fact Phaedra often moves from one occupation to another quite quickly as she gets easily bored and likes to set herself new challenges. She has a secret, She is extremely maternal and craves to have a child of her own; unfortunately this will never be possible as she cannot have children (or so thats what she has been told) - She has yet to meet someone to settle down with as she is not a steriotypical beauty and most men are intimidated by her appearence and go get it attitude. This has left a huge gap in her life that only teaching will help her fill. When at Hogwarts she doesnt feel quite so alone. After taking a teaching position a few terms ago she had to have time out to visit her estranged aunt, and work on her articles in the prophet. It wasnt long before she found she very much missed the place and desperately wanted to come back, this time she wants in the potions department where she can bond closer with the students and hopefully make some new friends among the staff. She is very much interested by children but also very reserved and shy around them, she is slightly more confident than in her previous years. She is comfortable with who she is now. A dark and beautiful, indipendant creature.

Biography (500 words minimum. There is never such a thing as too much.):

Aedra was born to Valkor and Persephone Fitzgerald in 1914. Her parents had married or were arranged to be married at age 16 as stated by Romani law, although her grandparents had arranged it when they were only 8 years old. After the marriage the women were pressured into having children young and Persephone shortly after became pregnant, giving birth to first a son, Phoenix Fitzgerald in 1912. Two years after that Aedra was born and a year after her followed her two younger twin brothers Frederick and Felix.

They lived in a small red Romani Wagon with two shaggy black horses that pulled it along the dirt paths of the Romanian forestry and valleys. They never had official names by her father's ruling but she secretly liked to call them Blitz and Blaze. In Romani tradition animals and creatures are considered unhigenic and impure especially cats, so they wern't aloud pets. And the men in the family had the say in everything

When Aedra was 10 her farther and another head of a Romani family agreed to marry her with a boy called Kenzi, obviously she was kept unaware of the arrangements and the fact she had been sold. Her mother didn't want this for her, but she had little choice in the arrangement as women were to be seen and not heard by thier traditions. It was on her 13th Birthday at an arranged dinner between the heads, where both children were finally informed of the arrangement.

Kenzi was nice enough, he had dirty brown hair and eyes, and although unenthusiastic about the deal he did not protest. She did not want or feel she belonged to this life and was scared to be married to a man she did not even know.Before she knew it, her 16th Birthday approached. She grew anxious and felt more trapped as each day passed by. Finally, in fear of her father and his plans to marry her off she decided to leave and never look back.

Feeling she had no other options and packing what little things she had, Aedra decided to flee the country to France. In the early hours, a week before her wedding she snuck out, surprisingly with the help of her older brother Phoenix. Making her way through the Romanian enchanted Hoia-Baciu Forest known for its hauntings and deadly magical creatures, she travelled to in search of her Aunt Esmerelda.

When she finally arrived at her Aunts, who had been informed to hide her away by her mother, she took care of her and bought her a kitten to help distract her from her past. Phaedra was enrolled at Bauxbatons and for a while she lived a relatively normal life.

Then one day, her Aunt recieved a letter from Aedra's brother warning them that thier father was looking for her again and got word of her location in france. Fleeing once again they moved to Britain, so Phaedra could finish her final year at Hogwarts where she was sorted into Ravenclaw.

She settled down and a few years after graduation her aunt died, leaving her enough money to buy a home in knockturn alley. She now lives thier with her cat and Dromeda and although there are rumours her father had died, Phaedra does not believe it. Hogwarts is her best chance to hide.

SAMPLE ROLEPLAY
(Please respond to to this in third person past tense. Do not write the other characters' reactions. Only your own.)

It was the largest office in Hogwarts and, perhaps to students and newcomers, the most intimidating. The shelves were filled with various odds and ends, with a place of honor for the Sorting Hat, and the walls held all the portraits of past Headmasters and Headmistresses.

In the middle of the room sat a large desk. Everything was in order, for the current occupant had always despised a messy desk. It was the sign of a messy mind, and she had always favored neatness.

A clock sat on the desk, which currently showed the time to be 2:05. The meeting was supposed to begin at 2:00 precisely.

Along with order, Anneka valued punctuality. She was a very busy woman these days. Even during the summer, she had a number of matters to attend to. Interviewing and hiring staff was only of those matters. The newest potential member of her staff wasn't making a good impression.

She paced the room, black heels clicking against the stone floor. When the door finally opened, Anneka turned, her expression reminiscent of a Russian winter. "You are late."

Explain yourself was what her face said.

Roleplay Response:

Potions Professor. The role seemed daunting, not because she lacked the knowledge needed for the position, but she had never considered herself much of a people pleaser. The numerous amount of times she would receive the odd stares and hushed whispers from passersbys as she made her way though town with Adromeda happily trotting behind at her heel, was too many to count.

Some of them eyed her like a common thief, others would laugh or even look at her companion with disgust. It was no wonder that she had cut herself of from the outside for so long, with the narrow minded judgement that waited around each corner.

She glanced down at Andromeda, her red lips parting into a gentle smile. Aedra had tried her best to get the small cat to stay behind at home but to no avail. The small furless cat was tied to her body and soul, everywhere Aedra went Adromeda would no doubt follow. And her numerous efforts had now made them late for the meeting.

Climbing through the office door, she shuffled towards the desk nudging Andromeda from her ankles, that she was now purring and rubbing herself against. She tried to hard think of how she was going to explain herself. Aedra knew that trying to trick a very clever and cunning cat to stay home would not make for a sufficient excuse

"I am so sorry." She shook her head, her heels clicking across the dark wood floor as she offered her a hand with a soft smile. "I won't lie, I can't say I have a valid reason for my lack of punctuality. But rest assured it won't happen again... It may not appear this way, but I am very dedicated and passionate about my work and I don't usually struggle with timekeeping." Aedra took a seat in the chair opposite, crossing her legs and folding her hands neatly in her lap before shuffling uncomfortably.

She really needed this.

Despite the fact Phaedra often moves from one occupation to another quite quickly as she gets easily bored and likes to set herself new challenges. She has a secret, She is extremely maternal and craves to have a child of her own; unfortunately this will never be possible as she is infertile - althogh she is unaware of this as she has never been in a commited relationship. The next best thing, she has decided is to help teach younger children about wizarding law in hopes that once identifying the reprocussions of breaking the rules, the next generation will steer away from dark influences and learn how it can help them stabilise or if ignored ultimatley, destruct society. She is very much interested by children but also very reserved and shy around them.

CHARACTER INFORMATION
Character name: Phaedra Fitzgerald

Previous and/or Current Character(s) if applicable: Vlad, Reagan, Diego & Athy

Character age: 29

Character education: Bauxbatons '32

Strength and weaknesses (details please):

Strengths
Phaedra's strengths mostly come from her mentalities rather than her physical form. She is caring and approachable towards her peers, going out of her way and above and beyond to help those who ask for it. She is an hardworking and creative individual who always strives to do any task to the best of her abilities, even those that she isn't paticularly gifted in. Phaedra is also well travelled, having attended the four corners of the world in search of Astronomical Anomalies for her research she is knowledgeable in anything Astronomy or Astrology related. But over all, it will be her kindness and willingness to help others that will be what defines her as a Professor.

Weaknesses
Phaedra's main weaknesses come from her sheltered upbringing. She is a little quirky and strange, finding certain social situations uncomfortable. Aedra doesn't handle confrontations very well and although she would be brilliant teaching students with the desire to learn, the loud mouthed, abnoxious types could cause her problems. Another problem she has it that she is extremely disorganised and clumbsy, often loosing important documents and day dreamily bumping into doors and tripping over her cat, Andromeda - who follows her around religiously.

Physical description:
Phaedra's look is gothic and vampiric, often drawn towards wearing a lot of black and dark colors. She only wears either dresses or skirts that rest just above the knee, mainly out of habit from her life as a traveller and because she finds trousers too masculine to wear with her extensively tattooed body. As like with her dress sense her make - up is dark but yet subtle, usually made up of a bit of eyeliner and lipstick.

She is curvy, but not paticularly thin and her natural dark hair falls long down her back, although it is rarely let down in public. She usually likes to wear it in fancy up do's with small hair accessories such as butterflies and stars to compliment her outfits and her skin (the parts are visable and not tattooed) are as pale as a fresh blanket of snow.

Personality (nice, rude, funny etc. Paragraph please.):
Phaedra's personality is generally rather odd and full of strange quirks. She is abundantly shy around new people at first, which is often confused as her bieng obnoxious or rude from the way she hides away from direct communication. She is extremely docile and hates debates or any kind of negative confrontations if someone shouted at her she would probibly run away, lock herself in a broom closet and cry for the rest of the day, but that doesn't mean she isn't necessarily tough in other ways. Unlike most people she gets joy and satisfaction from helping others and will go to the ends of the earth to help a friend in need.

She is the opposite of what you would probably expect of her if you was judging her on looks alone.

Hopes and dreams. Why are you teaching at Hogwarts?:
Phaedra had always been interested in Astronomy, since she was a little girl but teaching other children had never been part of the plan. It is her nurturing and helpful side that has bought her to apply for a position at Hogwarts.

She has been writing Astronomy books and researh papers with the odd column in the Daily Prophet over the years, but those jobs seemed to be missing something that she wanted to do most - help others. She wanted a more hands on experience with educating people, and although her books had with no doubt helped peoples interest in Astronomy, she didn't feel she was getting the same sense of satisfaction as she would with becoming a Professor and helping the next generation of witches and wizards.

Biography (500 words minimum. There is never such a thing as too much.):

Phaedras upbringing was rough, she was part of a traveller community from Romania. The community was very male dominant, with the women raising children, cleaning and preparing feasts while the men, been the main breadwinners went out to hunt and provide.

Traditionally, her family was very large. With Phaedra been the second oldest of six children and the only girl, life was incredibly tough for her. She was often pushed out because she was female and was only expected to talk when been directly adressed by her father. At the age of fifthteen her family gave her hand in marrage to another traveller boy in the community, but her older brother Fabian helped her escape before the ceremony took place.

She moved to France, with an estranged aunt and began her education at Bauxbatons. This was where she really began to blossom and come into her own. And although even then she was rediculously shy, she made a handful of friends and enjoyed her education there. She valued education perhaps more because she hadn't known such luxuries in her past.

Just before graduation, there was word that her father was looking for her again. Phaedra was naturally quite scared of her father and feared he would force her hand in marrage again if he found her. And she did not want that, she wanted to make her own decisions - She wanted to marry out of true love

And so, after graduating Phaedra began to travel and see more of the world, marking out certain places on her map for Astronomical Events, mostly in order to dodge her father who was currently trying to track her down. On her travels she found a lost kitten in a box who she adopted and kept as her own, she called her Andromeda and kept her close by as she was the only friend she had at the time - this same cat now follows Aedra everywhere, at her heels.

After these travels, Aedra's farther had died, her aunt had owled her to let her know and finally Phaedra was free to settle down and make a real life for herself. Safe from persuit she published her book and after some success, bought a small home on the outskirts of Knockturn Alley. She wrote a few more Astronomy books until this became boring and extremely lonley, as she would study all night and sleep all day.

 This lead to her decision to start courting. After a few small dates and a few harmless kisses but nothing substantial, Phaedra became even more withdrawn. Her ideals of true love and a family of her own, now feeling like a million lightyears away, she gave up on the idea altogether and decided to get back into her work.

Eager to distract her from her soppy romantic ideals she transfered jobs to a position at the Daily Prophet but found the job didn't give her any sense of real accomplishment. She wanted to do something more emotionally rewarding, somehing that would help people on a more personal level, and that was what had lead her to apply for Hogwarts.

She paced the room, black heels clicking against the stone floor. When the door finally opened, Anneka turned, her expression reminiscent of a Russian winter. "You are late."

Explain yourself was what her face said.


Her heels clicked loudly as she approached the final set of stairs to the Headmistresses office. Glancing down at the pocket watch in her hand she pinched the bridge of her nose. Phaedra liked to be punctual, it was good manners and she knew been late for a job interview was never a good thing. It certainly didn't set a good example.

Standing before the door to the office, she took a moment to compose herself, feeling the adrenaline pulse throughout her body and trying to somehow trying to control her nerves.

"You are late."

The expression, or the lack of expression on the ladies face scared her. Phaedra smiled sheepishly, closing the door behind her before allowing her eyes to meet with hers.

"I'm sorry." Her eyes drifted across to the large desk and the shelves upon shelves of books before she continued "I don't often tend to make a habit out of been late... I understand punctuality says a lot about a person."

CHARACTER INFORMATION

Character name: Phaedra (Aedra) Fitzgerald

Previous and/or Current Character(s) if applicable: Reagan / Diego / Athena / Freya

Character age: 27

Character education: *Bauxbatons '25 - '29 (fled to England age 15)
*Published First Astronomy Novel '34 (Astronomers Guide to the Galaxy.)
*Discovered new star correlation '36 (Crysnthium, flower shaped)
*Published Astrological article on Star Signs and what they mean '39
*Wrote Another Novel due on shelves November '41 (Divination Through The Use Of Astronomy.)

Strength and weaknesses (details please):Her strengths include mostly Divination and Astronomy, but she is also rather good at raising and caring for animals and magical creatures.She is terrible at potions, even though she is a good cook and her attempts at Charm work often end in disaster.

Physical description: Aedra is 5'6 with long dark hair and dark eyes. Because of her Romani (Romanian traveller) heritage she is pale skinned at heavily tattooed from her travels and rites of passages into adulthood. Her dress sense is theatrical and gothic but still feminine and she often wears a lot of heavy eye makeup. 

Personality (nice, rude, funny etc. Paragraph please.):Aedra is the type of woman you would see in the street and probably cross to avoid eye contact with. On the outside she seems tough and a little scary but the truth of the matter is she would probably be the nicest person you could ask to meet. She has a huge heart and would often go out of her way to help someone if they asked her too. She is exceptionally smart and independent so it would be wise not to cross her. Problem is, her years of dedication to astronomy has left her cut off from the outside world and therefore left her a little socially awkward and unadmittably lonely.

Hopes and dreams. Why are you teaching at Hogwarts?: Aedra decided to apply for the position because she had finished her latest novel and now wanted to spend more time in the.company of others, after been couped away for many years she wants to spread her wings a little. She has always been into studying stars and galaxies since she was a small girl and believes it to be a subject that doesn't get enough recognition. She wants to motivate and inspire the next generation of Astronomers and Astrologers.

Biography: Aedra was born to Valkor and Persephone Fitzgerald in 1914. Her parents had married or were arranged to be married at age 16 as stated by Romani law, although her grandparents had arranged it when they were only 8 years old. After the marriage the women were pressured into having children young and Persephone shortly after became pregnant, giving birth to first a son, Phoenix Fitzgerald in 1912. Two years after that Aedra was born and a year after her followed her two younger twin brothers Frederick and Felix.

They lived in a small red Romani Wagon with two shaggy black horses that pulled it along the dirt paths of the Romanian forestry and valleys. They never had official names by her father's ruling but she secretly liked to call them Blitz and Blaze. In Romani tradition animals and creatures are considered unhigenic and impure especially cats, so they wern't aloud pets. And the men in the family had the say in everything

When Aedra was 10 her farther and another head of a Romani family agreed to marry her with a boy called Pedro, obviously she was kept unaware and there was a 'bride bid' payed. Her mother didn't want this for her, but she had little choice in the arrangement as women were to be seen and not heard. It was on her 13th Birthday at an arranged dinner between the heads, where both children were finally informed of the arrangement.

Pedro was nice enough, he had dirty brown hair and eyes and was rather excitable about the deal where Aedra was not. She did not want or feel she belonged to this life with its discriminating and sexist values and she wanted out. As time moved fast and her 16th Birthday approached, she grew anxious and felt more trapped as each day passed by. Finally she decided to leave and never look back.

Packing what little things she had, Aedra decided to flee the country to Britain. In the early hours, a week before her wedding she snuck out, surprisingly with the help of her older brother Phoenix.  Making her way through the Romanian enchanted Hoia-Baciu Forest known for its hauntings and deadly magical creatures.

After a few days hike she came across a tiny bundle of furless flesh hidden in a nearby fern bush. It was a kitten, alone and scared in forest it was unlikely to survive, Aedra took sympathy on the helpless animal and took her with her to start a new life together in the UK.

Using the money she had pick pocketed on her journeys and the money she had took from her farther on the night of her leaving she bought an old beaten down shack on the outskirts of Knockturn Alley at 18. Herself and Andromeda (the sphynx cat) settled into there new lives and Aedra began her study's and writings on the stars and galaxies.

It was the largest office in Hogwarts and, perhaps to students and newcomers, the most intimidating. The shelves were filled with various odds and ends, with a place of honor for the Sorting Hat, and the walls held all the portraits of past Headmasters and Headmistresses.

In the middle of the room sat a large desk. Everything was in order, for the current occupant had always despised a messy desk. It was the sign of a messy mind, and she had always favored neatness.

A clock sat on the desk, which currently showed the time to be 2:05. The meeting was supposed to begin at 2:00 precisely.

Along with order, Anneka valued punctuality. She was a very busy woman these days. Even during the summer, she had a number of matters to attend to. Interviewing and hiring staff was only of those matters. The newest potential member of her staff wasn't making a good impression.

She paced the room, black heels clicking against the stone floor. When the door finally oped, Anneka turned, her expression reminiscent of a Russian winter. "You are late."
Explain yourself was what her face said

Roleplay Response:

Astronomy Professor. The role seemed daunting, not because she lacked the knowledge needed for the position but she had never considered herself much of a people pleaser. The numerous amount of times she would receive the odd stares and hushed whispers of passersby as she made her way though town with Adromeda happily trotting behind at her heel, was too many to count.

Some of them eyed her like a common thief, others would laugh or even look at her companion with disgust. It was no wonder that she had cut herself of from the outside for so long, with the narrow minded arrogance that waited around each corner.

She glanced down at Andromeda, her red lips parting into a gentle smile. Aedra had tried her best to get the small cat to stay behind at home but to no avail. The small furless cat was tied to her body and soul, everywhere Aedra went Adromeda would no doubt follow. And her numerous efforts had now made them late for the meeting.

Climbing through the office door, she shuffled towards the desk nudging Andromeda from her ankles, that she was now purring and rubbing herself against. She tried to think of how she was going to explain herself. Aedra knew that trying to trick a very clever and cunning cat to stay home would not make for a sufficient excuse

"I am so sorry." She shook her head, her heels clicking across the dark wood floor as she offered her a hand with a soft smile. "I won't lie, I can't say I have a valid reason for my lack of punctuality. But rest assured it won't happen again... It may not appear this way, but I am very dedicated and passionate about my work and I don't usually struggle with timekeeping." Aedra took a seat in the chair opposite, crossing her legs and folding her hands neatly in her lap before shuffling uncomfortably.

This really wasn't the best start to her day.

Q
Roleplay: 
You come across one of these posts on the site. Please select one & reply as your character:

Option One -
Amelia Nixon was many things, but she was never a pushover reporter that people could just usher away with a busy shuffle past. She was dedicated and eager to cut to the very middle of the current political tensions because she was Amelia Nixon and her articles would most certainly become front page material.

“Sir, please! It’s for the Prophet, how do you feel-“

Another one brushed passed her, the shuffling busy masses making their way through Diagon Alley for the lunchtime rush. This had been the best possible time to get people, but none of them were giving her anything to go with.

Only momentarily discouraged, the short red headed lady took a seat on a nearby bench. Her quill resting in her left hand and her notepad ready in the opposite hand. Amelia pouted, tapping the quill against her leg as she scanned the waves of people for somebody - anybody - who looked like they had something to say.

She had been dreaming of her name in bold print, Amelia Nixon: The Source of Today’s Tomorrow. She had been dreaming of the larger office and the secretaries that would fetch her the morning coffee and fetch her anything she needed. The VIP interviews and the most exclusive press passes. But all Amelia had was a page seventeen piece on the rising number of frogs in London.

Hardened by a day of no success, the reporter stood up and started to trod off down the alley. A loose stone on the cobble path caught her heel, sending the distraught girl toppling down to the ground.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!” she yelled as she tried desperately to recover her shoe frantically in the middle of the Diagon Alley moving crowds.

Option Two -
The snow had been falling steadily all morning and it didn't look like it was going to stop any time soon. Joshua Campbell scrunched his face up in a frown as he lifted his gaze to look to the sky. Snow. It really was quite a bother.

And it certainly didn't make it better that Diagon Alley seemed to be getting more and more crowded. Joshua sighed and pointed his wand at the large box that was currently placed on the doorstep of his shop. He had to get going. He had an order to deliver.

"Wingardium Leviosa!" The elderly man muttered and watched the box hover in the air for a moment. Honestly, did St. Mungo's really need that much tinsel? And with glitter of all things? He sighed again. If it hadn't been for the rather convincing stamp on the order, he would have been likely to believe it had been a prank by one of those orphaned rascals living up there. 

Oh well, there was no point in waiting. Joshua deftly stirred the box down the doorstep and out onto the street, carefully levitating it above the heads of the crowd.

"Coming through! Coming through!" His voice sounded over the chatter of the crowd. "Keep out! Move ahead! Go on!" This was going way too slow. People were in the way and walking like they had all day! He huffed. Luckily the road was down hill.

"Coming through! Coming th--- arrrgh!" Joshua let out a loud shout as his feet suddenly slipped in the snow and sent him, the box, and several long strands of tinsel tumbling into the person who had been walking in front of him.

"For Merlin's sake!" Joshua muttered angrily as he hurried to his feet again, red and gold tinsel now decorating his black coat. "I am so sorry! This blasted snow!" He looked apologetic at the person he had crashed into.

Roleplay Response:
A blanket of snow covered the ground outside, Phaedra always loved the snow. It reminded her of a more innocent time when she was younger and more free. It reaped an excitement deep inside her inner child that granted her permission to let go of her inhibitions.

As she paced the long narrow paths of Diagon Alley, her long hair floating behind her catching falling snowflakes, Phaedra glanced up at the frozen icicles that hung helplessly from the roofs of busy shops as she passed. Her new fluffy coat came down to her knees and kept her snug and warm in the frosty winter air. And her eyes gazed over from the cold whipping her cheeks causing her to blink more often than usual.

The streets were alive with busy shopper's, out for Christmas gifts for loved one's. Shop owners stood adding colored tinsel and sparkly ornaments to shop windows. Phaedra struggled against the mass crowd, pushing and squeezing through the tiny gaps that would appear among them.

A frosted flake fell direct into her eye causing Phaedra to stop and bring her arms up in attempt to regain a clear sight of where she was going. Suddenly she felt something ticklish fall on her, removing her hands something colorful was attached to her neck wrapping round it like a scarf, glancing down at herself she found her new coat had been covered in sparkly decor. where had it all come from?

 "I am so sorry! This blasted snow!"

The man looked sorry, that was for sure but Phaedra wanted him to suffer for a while longer after all he had just ruined her new faux fur coat.

"OH My! Look what you've done to my new coat!" She poked him gently in the chest "Do you know who I am?" Phaedra began to unfasten the coat taking it off and shoving it into his arms "You had better get this sorted, when its done bring it to my address." She pulls out a business card and hands it to him with an aggressive look in gold scripted letters upon expensive card it read.
