Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Helen 'Hel' Kane

Birthday: October 14, 1934

Hometown: Cambridge

Bloodline:

Muggleborn / Halfblood / Pureblood / Unknown

Magical Strength (pick one):

Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Magical Weakness (pick one):

Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): 4th or 5th year

Biography:

Born to two magical parents- Helen had a good childhood, bereft of any major trauma. Her situation, really, was ideal. She had two parents who loved each other and doted on her, and Hel’s relationship with her family is part of the reason she has become so fiercely loyal of the ones she loves. At age 2, Hel’s little family expanded to include her newly-born sister, Senna. She adores her little sister, and many of her childhood adventures included getting into mischief with Senna by her side. Hel’s magical abilities manifested when she was 3 years old, when she brought her father’s morning cup of tea to the boil during a particularly strong bout of anger. Her father affectionately dubbed her 'Hel' and her parents began teaching her how to channel her magic safely; seeing as Hel’s magical powers were the cause of many an accident in their household.

At age 4, Hel began to attend Charm School in favour of Muggle primary school to further hone her magical abilities, and to ensure she could check her temper. Her primary school education was fair, and she showed certifiable progress of controlling her magical abilities, but Hel's fiery temper still got her into trouble on multiple occasions. At age eleven, she received her Hogwarts Acceptance letter, and has been attending the school ever since. Her first year was by far the busiest, as she had to adapt to living away from her family in an unfamiliar place where far too many rules tried to restrict her individuality. Regardless, Hel made many friends during that first year, and found that returning home for the summer holidays even made her miss Hogwarts’ castle a little.

Her second year was one of athletic prowess. She joined her house’s Quidditch team and enjoyed her newfound ability to channel her temper and her energy into the sport- and as a result, her grades began to steadily improve. Hel was by no means remarkably intelligent, but she enjoyed playing her strengths in the classroom as well as on the pitch.

Hel’s third year wasn’t particularly noteworthy. Her grades remained constant and she stayed on her House’s Quidditch team, and her friends ensured that her stay at Hogwarts was again, an immensely satisfying one. This was the year, however, where Senna started to attend the school, and Hel did her fair share of worrying before she realised that, like herself, Senna just had to adapt, and that she would be all fine.

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

House Request: Slytherin

Personality: Hel is ambitious, strong-willed, and extremely confident in herself. She's incredibly loyal to her friends and family, but not afraid to throw a stranger under the bus to further her own means. She is civil to strangers and more personal when it comes to those she's close to. She can be extremely manipulative, and her temper is short and fiery; the combination of these things often gets her into trouble. She's quite intelligent; her strongest subjects are astronomy and charms; but Hel isn't a person who employs that intelligence in dangerous situations. Rather, she prefers charging in with her wand blazing and assessing the situation later. As such, she has difficulty conforming to a set standard and prefers to pave her own way as opposed to following someone else's- being forced to conform often triggers her temper.

Appearance: Hel is of a medium height and lean musculature, with fair skin, ash-blonde hair and brown eyes. Her hair is braided back at the temples, and then swept back into a ponytail. There's a smattering of freckles across the bridge of her nose, and her left front tooth is slightly chipped. She's meticulous about her looks and keeps her appearance well kept; her hair washed, nails trimmed, etc. She's got a set of matching scars on both elbows, which she received as a result of a particularly nasty fall when she was a child.

She wears the robes of her house with immense pride. She carries herself confidently, and favours wearing her uniform with only minor alterations to suit her personal preferences; not enough to be noticeable, but just enough to feel like she's challenging the status quo.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.

Hel was only just returning to the Slytherin common room, about to open her mouth and utter the password in front of the entrance; when a tinny voice, high and very clearly uneasy, stole the words right out of her mouth. The sounds bounced off the walls and the serpent, mistaking it for Hel's password, uncoiled in front of Hel's eyes. "Falsssssse," It hissed, "Perhapssss later." Before solidifying itself back into inaction. Hel groaned inwardly, feeling her temper spark at the person who had just ensured she couldn't enter the common room for another hour, and turned around to seek out the source of the sound.

The dungeons were as familiar to her as the back of her hand, and Hel turned a number of corners before she found the thin little girl, shoulders hunched and hands clasped tight at her sides, looking about the corridors. She had a Gryffindor crest sewn onto the breast of her jumper, and Hel felt another tenuous spike of anger enter her bloodstream. Gryffindor. Of course. "Hello! Is Emma Birch here?" the little girl called, and Hel moved into the firelight to lean against the stone wall.

"She's off," Hel said, coolly, meeting the little girl's eyes. "So what are you doing all the way down here? These dungeons are no place for little girls like you- even if you are a Gryffindor."

Hello Kane!

Your application is coming along great, but I am curious about your character's birth year - 1939... that would make her not even 10 since we are currently in 1948 and you will likely want her around 14 for your request of 4th or 5th year.

I figure it is a typo, just want to have her birthday correct on the app before we process it ^_^

Once you make the adjustment, please post your entire revised application below and we will be happy to take another look!

Quote from: Helen Kane on 8/8/2016 2:51am
I put down Slytherin, but I've come to the realization that Gryffindor is simply a much better fit for my character's personality traits- is there a way I can change it?



The note has been applied!
