OOC NOTE: Before adopting a character, I kindly request that you've been on site for two terms to ensure activity - thank you!
Magic and royalty are two things the house of Duke have been associated with for centuries – and they won't let you forget it.

Today they have managed to impressively continue their Pureblood lineage through interbreeding and the intricate process of marital arrangements. The family are deeply involved with politics to the point that it's almost suspicious, and they reside in Kensington in a manor once built for them by the French. It's surrounded by acres of land, and is protected from Muggles.


Founded: 15th Century   Main Residence: Duke Manor Family Head Xavier M. Duke   Blood Status: The Purest
The Dukes are established and popular in high society. If they don't attend your affairs, you're not worth a penny – and it's not often they turn down an opportunity to upstage their associates. Naturally, their name can often be found in newspapers and magazines alike. However, many have long since learned better than to slander their name. The men of the family are often lawyers and politicians, and they won't hesitate to take advantage of their position to eradicate a threat no matter how small.

The family also doesn't fall short of successful business men and scholars. Women are primarily wives and mothers, and the family value tradition, conservatism, and both Pureblood and upper-class elitism. They are fiercely protective of their own, and unless you have earned their loyalty and trust or have something valuable to offer them, don't expect them, or anyone in the Duke family for that matter, to do something for you. They are far from selfless and are notorious for their knowledge of what people hope and pray remains unknown — not to mention their incessant indulgence in the extravagant.




Notable Allies: The Ricardus, Darcy, Ellwood-Luxe, Carlisle, Prothero, and Paladin Families.

Notable Foes: The Beauchamp Family and the Crowley Family — for treason, betrayal, and attempt of murder.

Biography:
July, 1937
Dear Diary,

That is the proper way to start one of these things, is it not? Either way, its embarrassing. You're an inanimate object.
 
I have just found out that I will no longer have a private tutor and that I will be attending Hogwarts in autumn. I'm hoping that this is a cruel joke, but my mother does not possess a sense of humour. I've always wondered what my father sees in the woman when she is simply what society calls a 'gold-digger'. 
 
The idea is absolutely preposterous. I've been in Kensington or with my family throughout my entire life. Never would I imagine to live so far away from them, my father in particular. I'm not fussed on leaving my little brother - Xanthus - and not having to see my mother would be a blessing. 
 
Mother considers me an accessory instead of a daughter. I'm like the diamond bracelet everybody wants. Apparently so, anyway. She'll dress me like a doll to make sure I don't make her look bad, but at the same time she doesn't want me to look better than her. Vanity is vulgar. I hope I never grow up to be like her. Knowing I already look like her is an insult in its own, although even I must admit she is pretty. 
 
Father however, I am much closer to him. He calls me Panda. Horrifically cutesy, I know. He is the only person who will ever get away with such a nickname, nobody else will hear of it. 
 
I'm going to attempt to change my outlook on this situation. I will soon be told that this will be a new adventure, anyway. Until then, I'll have to prepare for the challenges ahead. I've been told of muggle magazines that give advice on situations like this. Is it worth the risk bringing shame on my family to prepare? Most certainly. Muggles are some what useful after all.

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
Note: This section is optional, and is up to you to complete.

House Request:
SLYTHERIN! Only the best, of course.

Personality:
Pandora is your typical daddy's girl, minus the need for pink ribbons and a pony. Most of the time, anyway. She is a logical thinker and she is slightly arrogant, but despite her impressive brain, she tends to forget to think before she speaks. This often gets her into trouble.

She is also very stubborn and possesses a dry sense of humour. She is popular in her home town and due to her cunning ways she is known for being the eyes and ears within the youth of Kensington. Due to this she can be quite relentless and manipulative.

However, Pandora is a friend for life - if you're worthy enough to gain her trust. She can be very loyal and is ridiculously protective of those she truly cares about. She isn't afraid to get her hands dirty in order to get revenge.

In her free time, Pandora is an enthusiastic and talented ballerina. She also can play the piano and the violin, although she doesn't enjoy it very much and only does so at family events. She also has the knack for charms.

The ultimate pet peeves for her are loud eating and ignorance.

Appearance:
Pandora has light blonde hair and sky blue eyes, both are complimented by her very slightly tanned skin. Due to her cute looking baby face, she is often misconceived as unnaturally pleasant and some what angelic.

On a day to day basis, she wears minimal makeup that consists of coral coloured lip stick and 'barely there' mascara to accentuate her eyes. Her mid-length hair is almost always curled and down.

Pandora is slim due to her passion towards ballet and her height at the moment is around 5'5. Her shoe size is a 6 and her clothing size is also a 6, sometimes even a 4 depending on the store she shops from. She often wears high waisted skirts and pretty blouses.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.

"Hey!"

Pandora ignored the voice as she furiously walked on down the castle corridor, her shoes tapping against the stone floors. The girl probably wasn't calling for her anyway, or at least she hoped she wasn't. Pandora had no interest in talking to some nobody who's life story, opinion or question was irrelevant to her current needs.

"Wait up! It’s for the paper..."

The blonde suddenly stopped in her tracks. How cute, she thought. She was almost flattered at the remark. Although, despite having little to no interest in the matter, at least they'd get a few quotes from somebody worthy.

With a turn of her heel, Pandora came face to face with another student who had the grace of a rhinoceros. Her eyes widened and her right eyebrow raised suddenly in order for the girl to continue.

"What do you think about serving frog legs at lunch? Some say it’s a delicacy, but others think it’s plain gross."

Pandora took a moment to think before she answered. This was the first student she had come across at Hogwarts so far, so she would have to impress...or repulse. Both would be rather amusing. However she had never actually tried frogs legs - and the thought of it disgusted the Slytherin hopeful. She would have to charm her way through this one.

"You need to have an acquired taste to appreciate the French dish...one that most students here probably do not have. Its quite pointless really, you might as well stick with whatever you do serve, chips and what not." Pandora replied. Her voice had a neutral, almost uninterested tone to it. Conversely, in her head she chuckled to herself, knowing how pretentious and plain awful she must seem to the sad excuse for a reporter. 

"Now if you don't mind," Pandora continued, "I have places to go and people to see. All of which I would rather do than utter another word to you." A subtle smirk appeared on her coral coloured lips before she turned to leave. Though before doing so, Pandora gave the girl a vertical scan with her pale blue eyes before speaking once more, "...But if you really want the truth, nobody is going to care about this tally you're doing. Do something scandalous like a gossip column and maybe then people will take interest in this little paper of yours."

Hi! I will be roleplaying Pandora in Elsewhere until April when the school term ends and then I will do a Hogwarts application. Until then she will continue with her private tutor until the summer break if that's okay? :-)

CHARACTER INFORMATION

Character Name: Pandora Duke
Gender: Female
Age: 14
Bloodline: Pureblood

Parents/Guardians (Are they currently played characters?):

Pandora's father committed the cliche act of proposing to his soon to be wife on Valentine's Day. To this day he will not admit that it was in fact an arranged marriage and his heart very much belonged to somebody else. 
 
Xavier Duke is one of three sons - all being successful business men - within a prestigious family. He was born and raised in Kensington and was sorted into Slytherin house when he attended Hogwarts. Xavier possesses tan skin and kind brown eyes, with grey hair that was previously dark brown. Despite this, he is undeniably handsome and is often found in an impeccable suit. Xavier is incredibly selfless and doesn't take his opulent lifestyle for granted. His personality is near flawless, unlike his wife's.
 
Penelope, last name unknown, is an only child within a middle-class family. Throughout her life she has been highly ambitious and willing to knock anybody down to get where and what she wants. When presented with the opportunity to marry a kind-hearted aristocrat, she couldn't refuse. Penelope has natural blonde hair and light blue eyes with creamy skin to compliment them. She is tall, slim and highly materialistic as well as possessing the trait of vanity.

Residence:



A moderately sized manor in the countryside of Kensington. It has creme stone walls and a midnight blue roof. Surrounding the manor is a forest and several acres of flat land. There is a lake near where swans and several magical water creatures rest or live. Also there are magnificent flower patches of all colours imaginable and a grande tree house within the forest that was built for Pandora when she was 3 years old.

Roleplay Response:

"...Do you want to play?"

Pandora heard the innocent voice and looked over the top of her book harshly. The girl had disturbed her peace, something she didn't get often with a family that was slowly nearing insanity. 
 
However, she sympathised the being. Pandora looked to the sky and noticed the brooms zooming throughout the clouds and only had to guess what occurred with the little girl. Boys are so insensitive and selfish until they mature. She didn't understand their existence prior to puberty.   
 
"Being a nuisance are they? She said with a smile so sweet it could rot your teeth. "I personally am not interested in the slightest, but I do have a younger brother around your age. He'd be delighted to play with you." 
 
She hadn't known for sure if Xanthus would play with the little girl, but Pandora was confident that her brother knew the consequences of disobeying his older, wiser and more experienced with magic sister's requests. It had been this way since he could walk and talk, Pandora wouldn't have it any other way. 
 
"Xanthus, you have a new friend. Father! Tell him to come and play. He did bring his broom didn't he?" She turned her pretty head to the sight of a nuclear family. However, she knew her father wasn't happy, she knew her mother was only there for status and she knew her brother was oblivious to it all.
 
Ignorance really must be bliss.
