Character age:

Character education: Hogwarts

Strength and weaknesses (details please): Margaux’s strength is her perseverance and her belief that everything is obtainable if you work hard enough for it. She started her own business making clothes after getting married and having three kids. Her husband wasn’t pleased, but she stuck to her guns and now she’s successful in her own right and not because of her father or husbands money.

Her weakness is her prejudice against mudbloods. She doesn’t believe that they should have a place among purebloods, but she doesn’t let that part be known. Her best friend is a halfblood though which makes it hard to actually find any base for her prejudice.

Physical description: Long brown hair with doe brown eyes. Slender, but petite. She stands around 5’5” and has delicate features.

Personality (nice, rude, funny etc. Paragraph please.): Some would say nice, some would say rude. She normally says what’s on her mind if something doesn’t quite look or seem right. She can be cold when warranted. Through the icy exterior though is a loyal, protective, loving woman who cares way too much about the people in her life.

Hopes and dreams. Why are you teaching at Hogwarts?: In her mind she’s pretty much done what she originally set out to do, so now to mold the minds of the society of the future. To teach them to believe in themselves and work for what they believe in.

Biography (500 words minimum. There is never such a thing as too much.):

Margaux Hartley was born Margaux De La Roche on October 31st. It wasn’t pretty a pretty birth by any means. Her mother was killed in the process and her father never let her live it down. In her younger years she was raised by a nanny and was brought tutor after tutor, not allowed to go to a regular school.

The homeschooling lead her to what she was passionate about though. She loved making clothes. On nights her father was gone on business she would put on a fashion show for the house staff. Her father approved of sewing, but he didn’t approve of wanting to make a business out of it. She was a lady and apparently ladies don’t do anything besides tend to their husbands and kids. Try telling her that now and she would tell you off probably.

When she was ten years old her father moved her family from Paris to London. The family business was expanding and her father was expected to oversee it. That’s when she received her letter for Hogwarts. Her father originally wanted the young girl to go to Beauxbatons, but he didn’t want to be too far away either. So he finally gave in and the following term she attended the school where she met the love of her life, her best friend, and made great memories in between.

She met Sebastian Hartley at her first opening feast. He was a year older, but that didn’t keep him from picking on the younger girls. For some reason she had been saved from his teasing though. Later that year they stayed at the castle while everyone left for Christmas. After that they were best friends. She watched as he lead girls on just to dump them. He watched as she did the same thing with guys. It wasn’t until they were done with school that they had found their true love for eachother. Now they have one boy and a twin set of girls.

Serena Rose was a different story altogether. They met their 5th year when Serena was the new girl. Gryffindor, but at least she was fun and not such a buzzkill. It was actually in a game of spin the bottle that their fate was signed, and after that night they were each others go tos. They still are.

After marriage life took its toll and the only solace she found was in her kids and in her passion. She started designing clothes and after some prying from Serena she actually started selling items. To her surprise it actually boomed. Growing up all she wanted to be was a fashion designer. She would study muggle designers, hiding the magazines from her father. It was her destiny. The business practically runs itself now though. Now it’s time to shape the future.

It was the largest office in Hogwarts and, perhaps to students and newcomers, the most intimidating. The shelves were filled with various odds and ends, with a place of honor for the Sorting Hat, and the walls held all the portraits of past Headmasters and Headmistresses.

In the middle of the room sat a large desk. Everything was in order, for the current occupant had always despised a messy desk. It was the sign of a messy mind, and she had always favored neatness.

A clock sat on the desk, which currently showed the time to be 2:05. The meeting was supposed to begin at 2:00 precisely.

Along with order, Anneka valued punctuality. She was a very busy woman these days. Even during the summer, she had a number of matters to attend to. Interviewing and hiring staff was only of those matters. The newest potential member of her staff wasn't making a good impression.

She paced the room, black heels clicking against the stone floor. When the door finally opened, Anneka turned, her expression reminiscent of a Russian winter. "You are late."

Explain yourself was what her face said.

Roleplay Response:

Margaux looked around the room in astonishment. She hadn’t been inside of the castle in at least 10 years. The castle smelled the same though. It never changed. The people changed, but the castle itself didn’t. It remained tall and magnificent. It was truly a monument… One that held extraordinary memories that is.

She might have drifted off too much to the past though.. She was now late she realized as she glanced at her watch. “Shoot.” She said to herself. A great impression needed to be made, but now that was highly unlikely. Punctuality was something she needed. Her schedule was her life, and when something happened to interrupt the schedule her nerves would crumble.

As she walked up to the room she knocked and opened the door, not waiting on a response. She was supposed to already be in the room so she figured it wouldn’t be a big deal. She just needed to be in there.

"You are late."

Margaux nodded as she stood just inside of the door. “I’m sorry ma’am I was just admiring the architecture in the hallway. It hasn’t changed a bit since I was last in the castle.” She stated with a warm smile. Hopefully the smile would melt the icy facade of the headmaster.
