Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.
Name:
Skade Larsen

Birthday:
21st of December

Hometown:
Ähtäri

Bloodline:
Pureblood

Magical Strength (pick one):
Charms

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Divination

Year (pick two):
5th, 6th

Biography:
Skade was born to Ilse and Leif Larsen, employees of the Finnish Ministry of Magic. She spent the first nine years of her life in her hometown of Ähtäri with her younger brother, Gunne, until an unfortunate accident involving some uncontrollable magic and her Muggle neighbor's wooden house. Embarrassed of their daughter's outburst and unwilling to compromise their positions in the Ministry, Skade's parents sent her to Wales to live with their former colleague, Betty Llewellyn. Life with Betty was pleasant and cozy compared to her parents' frigid household. With the help of Betty's grandchildren, Amelia and Gwyneth, Skade quickly learnt english, and over time, developed a fondness for British literature. Accompanied by Amelia and Gwyneth, she spent her free time outdoors, playing quidditch, exploring the coastline, and adventuring into the nearby Muggle town. Truth be told, she preferred Wales to Finland, which is part of why she refused to return to Finland after the Time Warp. For a while, she spent summer months in Ähtäri, not out of love for her parents, but to visit her brother, who she remained close to. To their credit, her parents did attempt to mend their broken relationship with Skade when they heard of her acceptance to Hogwarts; or at least, they offered to pay the tuition. Her relationship with her parents remains distant, both literally and emotionally. This indifference only grew once she stopped her visits to her birthplace; Finland's association with Nazi Germany had destroyed whatever part of her that called Ähtäri home. She may have felt very little connection to Ilse and Leif, but never resented them for the less than warm upbringing they gave her. She did worry for Gunne, who she feared might have been neglected by her workaholic parents.
Her Hogwarts debut was nothing spectacular; she didn't stand out, nor did she bond with anyone in particular. It wasn't until her second year that she began to form real friendships with her roommates and fellow students. Once Gwyneth and Amelia arrived in her third year, the three girls took up exploring again, only this time discovering the secrets of the Hogwarts castle.

House Request:
Gryffindor

Personality:
Despite her early eviction from the Larson family house, Skade was there long enough to adopt the same cold personality as her parents; she was taught to keep her emotions on a tight leash. That, combined with a natural reserved personality, makes her a rather difficult person to get to know. However, if angered, Skade can be quite the fury. She is quick to defend herself and her friends, and though she does not (generally) seek fights, she isn't afraid to throw the first punch. She knows that she appears intimidating, and uses that to her advantage. Through her study of literature, she came across the cynical wit of Oscar Wilde, and developed an unconscious habit of using sarcasm as weapon.
Skade's friends appreciate her for vast knowledge of seemingly random subjects, varying from Muggle literature to traditional Chinese medicine (although they refuse to accept her offer for free acupuncture treatments.) Although Skade may never say it, her friends know that behind her impetuous exterior, she cares deeply for them all.
Skade is intelligent, though she doesn't always apply herself in her classes. She likes being active, so she is sure to do well with any hands-on coursework; however, memorization and textbooks don't hold her attention very well. Her favorite classes are the ones that require improvisation, creativity, and on-the-spot thinking; namely, charms. She looks forward to joining a dueling club where she can show off her magical combat skills.


Appearance:
Due to her Scandinavian ancestry, Skade shares the same pale skin and fair, almost white hair as the rest of her family. Much to her distaste, she closely resembles her mother; to differentiate herself from Ilse, Skade begun to cut her hair short and messy, the opposite of Ilse's long, groomed locks. She is an average height, but rather gawky, as if she had never quite left behind the lanky-ness of preadolescence. More than once has she been mistaken for a boy.

Skade had spent the morning in the library perfecting a potions essay that was due for last class. After several hours of research, she had written a masterpiece; hopefully, the quality of her work would earn her pardon for the tardiness. It had better, she thought, because she'd missed a pivotal Quidditch game that would affect the outcome of the House Cup.
Not only had she skipped the game, but she also had to forgo breakfast. It was with a growling stomach that she made her way to the Great Hall, incredibly grateful for the house-elves' mouthwatering cooking. Thankfully, the way to the Great Hall was relatively void of trick steps and hidden doorways, and Peeves was nowhere to be seen. She was close enough to hear the other students' laughter and the occasional cheer, even through the thick oak doors. Picking up her pace, she continued to make her way towards the delicious scents wafting from the dining hall.
"WHAT! Haven't you ever seen a loser before? Why don't you just take a picture?"
Startled by the sudden outburst, Skade turned from the doors and took in the sight of her harasser. Muddy quidditch uniform, blotchy face, tear stained cheeks; a member of the losing team, obviously. The freckled boy seemed vaguely familiar, but he definitely wasn't in her year or house. Either way, she immediately disliked him: she found his his aggressive, self-pitying behavior incredibly irritating and pathetic.
"I've seen a few," she told him as calmly as she could. Skade knew she should let it drop, but as she opened the double doors, she couldn't help but taunt him one last time. Before he could go anywhere, she called out loudly enough for everyone else to hear.
"Hey, not to keep you, but what who won the quidditch match? It's just that I had to miss it, you know..."
