Name: Piper Eden

Birthday: (almost) 15, July 28th 1938

Hometown: New York, New York. Currently living at the Hogsmeade Children’s Home.

Bloodline:

Biography: 
Piper Eden is no stranger to moving around. If she wasn’t being shuffled around from orphanages and foster families, she was running away on her own accord, sometimes spending weeks at a time away from whoever was destined to take care of her at the time before being rounded up again and brought back to ‘The Home.’  Some people would say wasn’t fair for a young girl to have such a lack of stability. 

But for Piper, it was just the way it was.

Even in her deepest memories, Piper has trouble drawing up an image of her parents, who died or left or abandoned her when she was very small. She can see them. In the one photograph she has of them. But she can’t see who they really were. Sometimes she wonders why she hold on to their keepsakes: the photograph, the bracelet, the ragged baby blanket. But she can’t let them go. Even though they let her go. 

Piper lived in the muggle world for most of her life. Up until she turned 10, when a professor at Salem Institute came to tell her that she was, in fact, a witch, and that if she wanted to she could attend their school. Maybe it was a dream or a fantasy, but she took it. What else did she have to lose?

Her status as ‘Muggleborn’ proved difficult at times, but she was able to work with it. She had an issue with thievery —it was difficult being so poor and not having nice things was often draining— and it, and a handful of other misdeeds, eventually led to her expulsion from Salem at the end of her Third Year.

In 1952 a caring and patient Foster Mother, and witch, Naomi Jackson, took Piper under her wing, though Piper still resisted and ran away often. Street smart and crafty Piper was far too used to taking care of herself. But Naomi, who had British roots, moved her to England where she homeschooled her for her Fourth year and had Piper do community service through the Social Reconstruction Committee with the hopes that good behavior would gain the girl acceptance into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the next year.

Piper was leery, but she played nice. 

For the time being.

As August 1952 came to a close, Piper began staying at the Hogsmeade Children's Home where Naomi checked in on her often. But by the time November of 1952 rolled around, Naomi had to return to America to care for a sick Aunt but Piper opted to stay at the children’s home where she continued her homeschooling and community service.

You come across one of these posts on the site. Please select one & reply as your character. Remember, you can only roleplay your own character's actions, not Evangeline's or Hugh's. 

Option I:

The dungeons. A place eleven-year-old Evangeline had not yet travelled since her arrival at Hogwarts.

A place she really was just fine with not knowing; but it was too late. The dare had been accepted, even if it had been done in fear of being kicked out of Gryffindor, like the older girls had said she would because Gryffindors were supposed to be brave.

The air changed instantly when she hit the main corridor of the dungeons. The dampness was almost too much for her and she instinctively took a deep breath to avoid the sensation of being suffocated. There was also a sour burning smell which Evangeline assumed was from many, many Potions lessons.

Further and further she walked, her steps so slow and gentle they made no noise against the stone walls and floor. The feeling that she wasn't alone crept up her spine and raised the tiny hair on the back of her neck. Shivering, Evangeline wrapped her arms around herself. Suddenly, she missed the warmth and comfort of the Gryffindor common room. The fire was always going and it made her feel at ease.

Why had she let those girls talk her into this? She was only eleven, she didn't have to be brave. Surely the Headmistress would not kick her out of Hogwarts for not being brave.

If only she had these thoughts while being dared to search for the ghost of one Emma Birch, whom supposedly haunted the dungeons. It was not, Evangeline had learned, the place where the sixteen-year-old girl's life had ended but as she had been from the house with a snake as its mascot, it was the place her spirit had returned to. That common room was down here somewhere, she'd been told.

Something - the small blonde girl wasn't quite sure what - but something made her stop in her tracks suddenly. There was a low, dull thumping noise. Or maybe that was her heart beating so loudly she thought it was coming from outside her body.

"H-h-hello?" Her voice was barely above a whisper.

Remembering that she was supposed to be brave, Evangeline tried again.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

The sound of her own words bouncing back at her off the walls made her jump.



Piper Eden wasn’t afraid of the dungeons even if they weren’t her favorite place in the world. She’d lived in creepier and less comfortable places than the dark and dank underground chambers beneath the castle. Her biggest problem with them was the fact that they were underground, which made sense because where else were you going to put a dungeon? It made her uncomfortable. But not scared.

After a brief tour of an abandoned classroom (—in which she’d found several perfectly good quills, a pencil and a used notebook that was filled less with class notes and more with class gossip—) she’d decided to take a walk around the grounds. Stretch her legs. Breathe some air that wasn’t likely to coat her lungs in mold…

So she trekked through the dungeons, willing her feet on. But she wasn’t alone, it seemed.

“Hello! Is Emma Birch here?”

Rounding a corner, she eyed the shouting girl, raising an eyebrow, “Uh,” she said, tucking the quills into her ever present back pack, “That the girl that snuffed it?” She didn’t know the full story or myth or whatever, but she knew the name.

A smirk curled on her lips as she hitched her bag onto her shoulder, “Haven’t seen her, but I heard that if ya’ say her name three times down here,  she’ll fly outta that painting,” she motioned vaguely to one behind the girl, “And BAM!—” her voice carried impressively, “She’ll steal your soul and add it to her collection. Ya feelin’ lucky, short stuff?”

Roleplay:
Reply as your character to the following:

Godric Park.

Overhead, the sky was a crisp blue, for once clear of the ever-pervasive spongy clouds and rain. The sun was a lemony-yellow presence, high in the Eastern sky, and in front of it zipped three broomsticks in a straight line, or something very like one. One... two..... three... the boys passed, their shouts of excitement echoing as they chased the snitch, a tiny shimmer reflecting the sunlight.

Far below was another, much smaller broomstick.

It trugged along the ground, hugging close to it like a sluggish choo choo train and occasionally shuttering in protest. This was because said stick was currently being occupied by a very small girl who was tugging upward on the front of it with all her might, trying to coax it into doing what it had been expressly designed NOT to do.

"John, I said wait up!" The tiny girl squealed, giving the broomstick another tug.

Begrudgingly, it drifted upward a foot, and then sank, depositing the troublesome girl safely on the ground. Janey Hurst was not pleased. In a huff, she hopped off the toy safety broom, grabbing it firmly and thrusting it handle first into the turf.

Her brother was such a beast. He NEVER let her play! She folded her arms, seething blue eyes fixing on another figure nearby.  "You!" She barked, much more sharply than she meant to.

"...Do you want to play?"

Roleplay Response:
Piper was not at the park to relax or play. No, she was supposed to be cleaning it up. And the worst part? She’d had her wand snapped when she left Salem. And since she wasn’t enrolled in another school, she wasn’t able to get a new one yet. So she was stuck doing things by hand.

Which wasn’t horrible. She’d spend most of her life doing things the muggle way. But she’d finally had a taste of magic and it would have been oh-so-tempting to just… summon all the trash towards her. Instead she was walking around carrying a trash bag and picking up gum wrapper and the occasional empty can.

The park wasn’t even terribly filthy. Nothing like the city streets. But Naomi sent her here for the day. Probably thinking it would be a nice little vacation from the usual grime.

Woop-de-fricken-do.

If Hogwarts didn’t want her after this community service, well, they could just suck it. She quit. It was torture. And the worst part was she wasn’t even getting paid.

“You!”

All too familiar with that greeting, she turned with the roll of her eyes, “Yeah?”

“…Do you want to play?”

Piper considered the small girl for a brief moment before— “Nah, I’m busy, ain’t I? Why don’t you move al—”

She caught sight of the girl’s toy broomstick. It wasn’t a real broom. But she could definitely get some cash for it, if she could get her hands on it…

“—ong. Actually! Yeah, let’s play a game. You ever played Hide-n-seek? How ‘bout you hide and I’ll come find you, yeah? But I’m real good so make sure you hide somewhere decent.”
