Circe & Co

Biography: (100 words minimum.)
Life was easy for Vesper, especially since she was an only child. Her parents, who moved their family to London when Vesper was 6, doted on their daughter. They were instant socialites and Vesper grew up in their shadow waiting to step into the limelight.

She's a little ball of energy which her parents help channel through ballet and piano, but she has a knack for causing trouble. She goes through nannies like she does socks. For the most part she just wants to have fun.

Her first language was French, but she acclamated to English easy. Her mother is her idol. Where her father was rough her mother was soft and had a way with people. She could turn the heads of a crowd just by entering. Vesper wanted nothing more than to do the same.



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:
She watched as the other kids played. Who could she get in trouble today? It was truly the only fun worth having. Her nannies liked to call her evil, but she didn't even know what that meant. Her eyes roamed until her eyes fell upon another girl on a broom chasing after older kids.

Analyzing the target was easy. The hard part was implementing the plan. How could she get the girl to come to her? She pulled her sunglasses down a bit so she could get a clearer vision of things.

"You!" "...Do you want to play?"

Well that was easier than she thought it would be. She didn't even have to do anything and the prettiest fell into the trap. "Sure!" She said with a smile and her hand on her hip. "But I only play with my broom. Can you help me?" She asked as her eyes teared up right on cue. "It fell into the pond."

Hopefully the girl knew how to swim and she would get in trouble for being soaking wet. It would be the best start to Vesper's day. Causing pain to others was what she did best.

Carter

Whether it is thick or not, blood can be spilt.

The Carters are a dying breed. The patriarch, James Carter, walked out when the children were young, wanting to go live a better life where he wasn't held down. Poppy Carter didn't react well to this and died just two years later by her own hands. The four children were placed into the system and currently live at Hogsmeades Children's Home.


adoptables

Sarah Carter
 10th February 1945 | Ciara Bravo | N/A | 10yrs
OPEN

Sarah is the oldest of the four, being one of the twins yet having the title due to being 5 minutes older. She is incredibly bold and confident, in which she uses to boss around her siblings. Out of love, of course. She's always the first to investigate something and currently is really looking forward to going to Hogwarts, if she gets a letter in Feb. She pretends not to be affected by the events caused by her parents and tries to always be happy for her younger siblings. Sarah loves to read! She's a highly intelligent individual, who was told she took after her mother as she was a proud Ravenclaw.

Robert Carter
 10th Feb 1945| Jason Dazey | N/A | 10 yrs
OPEN

Robbie is certainly the hot head of the group. He's angry and loud and stubborn. That doesn't mean that he wouldn't do anything for his family. He just..gives out tough love to try and make life not hurt so much. He is surprisingly soft with his youngest sister, and around any animals. It's almost as if it's a different person. Robert sleeps a lot so it's common to find him napping on something soft if he's gone missing.

Christine Carter
 29th June 19450 | Claire Crosby | N/A | 5yrs
OPEN

Christine, better known as Chrissy, is the youngest of the group, and therefore is molly-coddled and babied. She doesn't mind though, as a lot of things confuse her due to her age. She's smart and is ahead of her age for communicating and her English skills, such as reading. A favourite hobby of hers is colouring, in which she can sit for ages and draw all her fantasy worlds that she makes up.



rules for adoptions

Basically, Philip is the child between the twins and Chrissy, and taken by moi, but I completely do not mind if anyone wants to make accounts for them/r them idk. Of course, permission needs to be asked for, which will most likely always be a yes if you're the first person. You can change their personalities and appearances, but ages would preferably stay the same. The twins will be going to Hogwarts in the September so that'll be an interesting transition, and so can be peoples first year chars if they need them. It also has good openings for some Elsewhere threads. Thanks.

Creon Ageptus. Marie Comtois

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Adelaide was born in 1893 and grew up in pre war France. Her father was a high ranking official in the French Ministry, and her mother, Penelope, was a  socialite and home maker who was born in Belgium. They lived in a period of abundance for the French nation; with the muggles having colonized much of Asia and Africa, it was a time of relative harmony between the two civilizations. As a mark of good will, Adelaide was even allowed on a trip to Indochine and French Algeria when she was between the ages of nine and ten years old.

Adelaide attended the local academy between the ages of eleven and seventeen; she took her OWL equivalency in her sixth year, and managed to score four O's (In Transfiguration, Potions, Divination and History) and three A's (in DADA, charms and Herbology) while she received an E on her Astronomy, Ancient Runes and Arithmancy exams. 

For her NEWT year, she chose to drop astronomy. In her final exam she received O’s in Transfiguration, DADA, Ancient Runes and Potions. She received an E in charms, Divination, History and Arithmancy.

Prior to her marriage, she worked as a nurse at a French wizardry hospital, before briefly transferring to St. Mungo’s in her mid twenties. At the age of twenty seven, and at the urging of her parents, she married Orestres Ageptus. Though initially unhappy with married life, the new bride eventually gained joy from the birth of a daughter, Persephone, about a year into their marriage. The tragic loss of the child a few months after her birth, however, put a strain on the marriage that would not be lifted until the birth of their son Creon some two years later.

Though a part of her wished to return to her nursing career, Adelaide decided soon after the birth of her son to devote her time to motherhood. In this vain, she raised Creon in a very person manner that was unusual at that time. She even went to the step of clearing her schedule of non vital society events in order to nurture and care for him. This was in a stark contrast to her husband, who had taken somewhat to a more traditional style of parenting. She would often play with her son at every available opportunity, and took to reading him stories before bed.

This gentle mother son relationship was slightly disrupted in 1936, following the birth of her granddaughter Marie. Though little could ever estrange her from her son, she was nonetheless left disappointed at the fact that the couple had conceived a child out of wedlock. Eventually, however, she forgave her son and sought to provide the best possible future for Marie as she grew up; this feeling never quite extended to the child’s mother, who was often left at the whim of the elder woman and her wealthy husband. In the end, an agreement was made to provide the woman with small home which the couple would pay for. Adelaide and her husband nonetheless maintained the right to evict Isabel at any time.

Following the loss of her husband, Adelaide maintained her villa in Normandy and was given a London townhouse by her son. She now runs a shop in Diagon Ally.

Option One -
Amelia Nixon was many things, but she was never a pushover reporter that people could just usher away with a busy shuffle past. She was dedicated and eager to cut to the very middle of the current political tensions because she was Amelia Nixon and her articles would most certainly become front page material.

“Sir, please! It’s for the Prophet, how do you feel-“

Another one brushed passed her, the shuffling busy masses making their way through Diagon Alley for the lunchtime rush. This had been the best possible time to get people, but none of them were giving her anything to go with.

Only momentarily discouraged, the short red headed lady took a seat on a nearby bench. Her quill resting in her left hand and her notepad ready in the opposite hand. Amelia pouted, tapping the quill against her leg as she scanned the waves of people for somebody - anybody - who looked like they had something to say.

She had been dreaming of her name in bold print, Amelia Nixon: The Source of Today’s Tomorrow. She had been dreaming of the larger office and the secretaries that would fetch her the morning coffee and fetch her anything she needed. The VIP interviews and the most exclusive press passes. But all Amelia had was a page seventeen piece on the rising number of frogs in London.

Hardened by a day of no success, the reporter stood up and started to trod off down the alley. A loose stone on the cobble path caught her heel, sending the distraught girl toppling down to the ground.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!” she yelled as she tried desperately to recover her shoe frantically in the middle of the Diagon Alley moving crowds.


Roleplay Response:
Type your response here.

Adelaide smiled; the poor woman seemed to be in a panic, and a part of her couldn’t help but sympathize with her. For a few minutes, she did little more than look around and see if someone, indeed anyone, would help the younger woman.

 When no one appeared, she sighed and pulled out her wand.

“No one has any manners anymore.” She said, sighing as she pointed the wand at the shoe and said “Accio shoe”

It took some time for the shoe to come to her, yet when it did she walked over to the woman with the shoe in hand.

“Here you are” Adelaide said “Nothing to worry about”

Hi Adelaide!

Thanks for making the change Caly requested! However, I noticed one more small problem with your application. In the levels section, the application form specifies:

Quote
The number of levels on the lowest ability must be at least half of the highest ability.

Adelaide's lowest abilities are at 5 and your highest is at 12. To have a Transfiguration level of 12, your lowest abilities would need to be at least at 6. You could either put more points into Divination and Summoning or move a single point from Transfiguration to another ability.

Once you've made those changes, please repost your entire revised application and we'll give it another look.

Os saltimbancos

Some may call them artists, others may call them scroundels - a few may even say those are the same thing. by all means, a merry gang of daring urchins has recently been terrorizing [and more than once entertaining] the streets of London. Brought together by circumstance, this tight-knit bunch is ready to take over the world - together and with a laugh.

Stop and get marveled - but, please, watch your pockets.




The clown
15|muggleborn|fabian gamba


Arlan Walsh is a problem. A rebel. A prankster. And also the charmest charmer to ever charm on this earth, who has very little in matters of morals. Cunning and witty, he is the kind of person who could to convince a beggar to give up his very last galleon. Once upon a time, he was part of a very dysfunctional family, once upon a time, he was a prime a example of what a Hogwarts students wasn't supposed to be - all this is in the past, for now he fancies the post of leader for this merry band.

That is, when he is not too busy being a smitten fool for Sylvia Grace. status:open



The nightingale
15|pureblood|madeline ford


Sylvia Grace is slumming - plain and simple. Born into an influent, traditional, old-fashioned family, this young lady became bored about her privileged life style and left evrything for an adventure. Beautiful and spoiled, she's having the time of her life. Regardless, Sylvia's voice is truly something to behold. status:open




The Acrobat
14|halfblood|cameron boyce


status:taken



The Contortionist
12|squib|marina nery


status:taken




The Snake enchanter
9|halfblood|august maturo


Orpheus, the youngest Cíprio sibling, was barely seven when a night fire took away his  parents. Now, at age 9, he is a very shy, loving child - albeit he does seem a bit more friendly with reptiles than the common rabble. He is usually the one holding the galleon-canister while the older kids perform - also, if the fact he pretends to be blind influences the patrons to give an extra coin or two, well, what can be done about it?
status:open
observation: needs special request for Parseltongue.



The Ballarina
14|halfblood|Aiyana Lewis


Calliope Atlas is a flower born amidst cold concrete. Ever since she can remember, Knockturn has been her home and some even say her mother was one of the night ladies moonlighting at the Moulin Rouge - the veracity of such a fact is uncertain, as her own memories of the are blotched by time. Quick on her feet and with a joyous nature, she's the life of the party.

Creon Ageptus. Marie Comtois

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Adelaide was born in 1893 and grew up in pre war France. Her father was a high ranking official in the French Ministry, and her mother, Penelope, was a  socialite and home maker who was born in Belgium. They lived in a period of abundance for the French nation; with the muggles having colonized much of Asia and Africa, it was a time of relative harmony between the two civilizations. As a mark of good will, Adelaide was even allowed on a trip to Indochine and French Algeria when she was between the ages of nine and ten years old.

Adelaide attended the local academy between the ages of eleven and seventeen; she took her OWL equivalency in her sixth year, and managed to score four O's (In Transfiguration, Potions, Divination and History) and three A's (in DADA, charms and Herbology) while she received an E on her Astronomy, Ancient Runes and Arithmancy exams. 

For her NEWT year, she chose to drop astronomy. In her final exam she received O’s in Transfiguration, DADA, Ancient Runes and Potions. She received an E in charms, Divination, History and Arithmancy.

Prior to her marriage, she worked as a nurse at a French wizardry hospital, before briefly transferring to St. Mungo’s in her mid twenties. At the age of twenty seven, and at the urging of her parents, she married Orestres Ageptus. Though initially unhappy with married life, the new bride eventually gained joy from the birth of a daughter, Persephone, about a year into their marriage. The tragic loss of the child a few months after her birth, however, put a strain on the marriage that would not be lifted until the birth of their son Creon some two years later.

Though a part of her wished to return to her nursing career, Adelaide decided soon after the birth of her son to devote her time to motherhood. In this vain, she raised Creon in a very person manner that was unusual at that time. She even went to the step of clearing her schedule of non vital society events in order to nurture and care for him. This was in a stark contrast to her husband, who had taken somewhat to a more traditional style of parenting. She would often play with her son at every available opportunity, and took to reading him stories before bed.

This gentle mother son relationship was slightly disrupted in 1936, following the birth of her granddaughter Marie. Though little could ever estrange her from her son, she was nonetheless left disappointed at the fact that the couple had conceived a child out of wedlock. Eventually, however, she forgave her son and sought to provide the best possible future for Marie as she grew up; this feeling never quite extended to the child’s mother, who was often left at the whim of the elder woman and her wealthy husband. In the end, an agreement was made to provide the woman with small home which the couple would pay for. Adelaide and her husband nonetheless maintained the right to evict Isabel at any time.

Following the loss of her husband, Adelaide maintained her villa in Normandy and was given a London townhouse by her son. She now runs a shop in Diagon Ally.

Option One -
Amelia Nixon was many things, but she was never a pushover reporter that people could just usher away with a busy shuffle past. She was dedicated and eager to cut to the very middle of the current political tensions because she was Amelia Nixon and her articles would most certainly become front page material.

“Sir, please! It’s for the Prophet, how do you feel-“

Another one brushed passed her, the shuffling busy masses making their way through Diagon Alley for the lunchtime rush. This had been the best possible time to get people, but none of them were giving her anything to go with.

Only momentarily discouraged, the short red headed lady took a seat on a nearby bench. Her quill resting in her left hand and her notepad ready in the opposite hand. Amelia pouted, tapping the quill against her leg as she scanned the waves of people for somebody - anybody - who looked like they had something to say.

She had been dreaming of her name in bold print, Amelia Nixon: The Source of Today’s Tomorrow. She had been dreaming of the larger office and the secretaries that would fetch her the morning coffee and fetch her anything she needed. The VIP interviews and the most exclusive press passes. But all Amelia had was a page seventeen piece on the rising number of frogs in London.

Hardened by a day of no success, the reporter stood up and started to trod off down the alley. A loose stone on the cobble path caught her heel, sending the distraught girl toppling down to the ground.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!” she yelled as she tried desperately to recover her shoe frantically in the middle of the Diagon Alley moving crowds.

Adelaide smiled; the poor woman seemed to be in a panic, and a part of her couldn’t help but sympathize with her. For a few minutes, she did little more than look around and see if someone, indeed anyone, would help the younger woman.

 When no one appeared, she sighed and pulled out her wand.

“No one has any manners anymore.” She said, sighing as she pointed the wand at the shoe and said “Accio shoe”

It took some time for the shoe to come to her, yet when it did she walked over to the woman with the shoe in hand.

“Here you are” Adelaide said “Nothing to worry about”
