Before 1974.

Joseph and Maria were loving parents, there was no trace of sinister backstory in the way they raised their children. Maria worked as a nurse for a local clinic outside of Oxford and was a proud muggle citizen. Joseph worked for the Ministry of Magic in the Spirit Division of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures.

Cora was raised in the muggle world and always had a curiosity about how the other side lived. Joseph and Maria explained to Cora that there were other magical people in the world and that some of them isolated their families from muggle culture. Cora was comfortable with the world around her, but she was envious of children that were raised purely on magical culture.

Cora no longer remembers her life in muggle Oxford, the memories are too distant for her to see clearly.

After 1937.

Cora was nine years old when the wizard world jumped back in time. Cora could observe the sudden differences around her but no idle thought was spared for contemplating the global consequences of the catastrophe. Joseph Bennett was a halfblood wizard and was brought back to 1937 alongside his nine year old daughter and his two year old son. Joseph kept the family in Oxford but protected them from the muggle world around them. Cora and Marcus were raised by Joseph alone and taught to fear exposure above all else.

Between 1937 and 1944, Cora did not undergo and significant changes. She turned eleven and was enrolled in a magical school and started her studies. Her behaviour was childlike and adult at the same time, the curiosity and absentminded musings of an imaginative child combined with the meditative concentration and calmness of an adjusted adult.

Cora has never been an exceptional student and professors have noted in the past that she seemed too distracted to achieve the marks she was capable of. Cora currently pursues happiness, ignorant to the reality of picking a career and preparing for it.

Mother: Maria Mortis, 43 years old.

Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.

Cora appreciated the sport of Quidditch, it was something vibrant to watch and everybody was enthusiastic about the players and points. Cora never understood the rules but she enjoyed the atmosphere of the games. People cheered and Cora smiled as she cheered absently for whoever was on the pitch. Cora didn’t know who won or lost most of the games, she seemed to usually miss the announcement.

While contemplating the exact nature of house elf fashions, a boy ahead of her turned around and shouted towards her. The shouting had not registered immediately with Cora, but when she understood that she was being spoken to she sympathetically smiled. If the boy ahead of her had been shouting at her then Cora wanted to speak with him and find out what she had done to upset the boy. His eyes were glistening and Cora wanted to help.

“Sorry, I wasn’t paying attention. You look flustered, would you like to get a butterbeer and talk about something?” Cora spoke, barely above a whisper.
