Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Ainia grew up in a household full of principals as most others  Children, particularly the female ones, should be seen and not heard; spoke only when spoken to; and be skilled in important things like social graces, manners, and the arts.

Ainia, of course, was allowed to attend a traditional wizarding school to hone her magical skills.  However, it was not expected that she would go on to work in a field, even one as a Healer.  Her marriage would be arranged, and she would become a housewife whose primary job would be to take care of the house, her husband, and their family.

Thus how her marriage to Jarvis came about.

Her husband had always been a bit of competitor, especially when the competition involved his brother Loxias.  Ainia never really understood the rivalry between the pair of siblings, but perhaps it was because she never had any rivalry with her own siblings.  She knew her role, she knew her place both growing up and now in her marriage.

She would never forget the day she first looked into Lilith’s eyes.  So tiny and defenceless, and the perfect mix of both her and Jarvis.  Fatherhood seemed to suit him, though he would likely never admit it out loud.

Then came the birth of their second daughter, Medea followed closely by a third girl, Evelyn.  Three provided to be much more work than just the two girls, as Ainia and Jarvis were now outnumbered.

Although he never voiced it outright, Ainia knew that Jarvis was disappointed that she had yet to bore a son.  His brother, Loxias, had a couple of sons; yet he had none.  He never voiced it, but his actions with the birth of his fourth daughter, Apollonia spoke louder than words.

Ainia loved all four of the girls though, and she knew that Jarvis did too, even if he didn’t outright admit it.

Five years after the birth of their four daughter, Ainia gave birth once again – to another little girl.  Rosalie, so tiny and defenceless, was currently cradled in her arms.  Ainia loved the little girl as much as she loved her four sisters, but deep down inside she wondered if she would ever give birth to a bouncing baby boy.

Reply as your character to the following:

It was impossible for Dianne to stay out of trouble. It wasn't that she was looking for trouble, it's just that trouble always managed to find her. Today she wished she could find something equally familiar but more comforting.

The five-year old girl hugged her puffskein closer to her and brushed her face in its soft fur for comfort. She had named him herself and he was always her special pet. No she was certain she had never gone down this side street before. Her anxiety increased every second as darkness fell as she walked down the road. A loud noise came to her left and she buried her face in her pet's fur completely. The scared girl bolted the opposite way slamming the both of them into the wall of the nearest building. Tottering back a few steps she found a door a few feet to her right and ran to open it. What light there was inside spilled out into the darkness and she spilled into the room.

Once in, she was caught between the impulse to curl her cloak up more tightly around her and loosen her grip on it. She wasn't alone anymore but she was now among strangers instead, which was nearly as terrifying. Her puffskein had recovered from the shock of the wall and now was purring contentedly as the girl hugged it, causing a mildly calming effect on the girl. Gathering her courage, she marched up to the nearest person, pulled on the nearest clothing hem and blurted out in a loud voice:

"I'm lost and it's dark and I wanted to know where I am but I'm not scared but I am worried that Sambundeakin is scared because he's little and needs something to eat and wants to go home."

She paused to draw a breath in her nearly never-ending sentence, "He misses my and his mommy."

To explain the scared girl held up the custard-colored puffskein. Sambundeakin the puffskein, however simply purred as if nothing on earth was wrong in the world.

Roleplay Response:
Ainia made her way down the main street of Diagon Alley.  It was not very often that she was able to get away from the crazy life that was raising five little girls, and she was enjoying the few hours that she was able to escape.  Funny enough though, she could get the girls off her mind; and she found herself thinking about them almost every single moment that she was away from them.

The sun was starting to set, and she should probably get home and get dinner on the table before Jarvis returned home from work.  Just as she was about to set off, she felt a tug at her sleeve.  Looking down, Ainia found a girl who couldn’t be much older than her little Apollonia at home.  She was hungry and lost; surely Jarvis wouldn’t be too angry if dinner was just a little later than normal?

“How about you come with me,” Ainia said softly to the small girl, bending down to speak to her on her level.  “We’ll go get you something to eat, and I’ll ask around to see if anyone has seen your mommy.”  Ainia stood back up, holding out her hand for the little girl to take.
