Name: Calix Glass

Birthday: July 18th, 1941

Hometown: Isle of Skye

Bloodline: Pureblood

Magical Strength (pick one):
Charms

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Transfiguration

Year (pick two): 4th or 3rd

Biography:
Lorna and Calum fostered a deep sense of kindness and compassion in Calix as a young child, and they have become a guiding moral compass for her. She has a close relationship with her brother, in spite of the difference in their ages, and she confides in him often. She loves her aunt and uncle dearly, finding solace and comfort in the easy relationship she shares with them. A small, quiet part of her longs for the fragmented, distant memories of her parents, and she will often leave small gifts for them, whether it’s knotted twigs by the river, or a river-polished stone in a soft bed of moss. A natural leader, she is quick to make friends and generally easy to get along with. Growing up in the outdoors fostered an innate fearlessness, and an almost oblivious disregard for own mortality. She risks herself needlessly, and often carelessly, with little thought to the consequences. Calix prefers to be outside, engaged in physical activities, whether it’s exploring nature, flying, or tending to the magical creatures that wander onto her aunt and uncle’s land. She will complete her school work out of sense of duty, but restlessness nags at her if she remains indoors for too long.

Personality:

Calix is outgoing, reckless, and ridiculously reckless. She never considers the consequences of her actions, and flies by the whim of her desires. If she sees a chance that interests her, she’ll leap in head first with zero thought to the repercussions. As a chaser of adrenaline and excitement, she loathes the boredom that results from sitting inside, reading, or studying. She is not a gifted student, and works only hard enough to achieve passing grades. While she is easy going and gets along with most, she has a deep seated fear of loneliness and abandonment, and willingly outruns her fears and worries rather than deal with them. She prefers to be outdoors, engaging in active sports, like quidditch or football.


Appearance:
Tall for her age, Calix is wiry and thin. Her busy, active lifestyle has made her body stronger than she looks. Clear hazel eyes are often followed by an easygoing, if mischievous grin, and long, fiery hair frames her face. It is often left wild and uncombed about her. She prefers loose, comfortable clothing, but is accustomed to finer dress as well. She is the spitting image of her deceased mother, which both pleases and grieves her.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
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.




Cold, grey stones pressed against her, setting her teeth on edge. Calix stifled a groan, longing for the warmth of sunlight, or the freshness of a mountain breeze across her face. She hated the dim, dankness, and the foul smell that permeated out from the mildew, creaky, old doors. She quickened her stride, long legs carrying her further into the dungeon.

”H-h-hello?” a quiet voice drifted towards her, so soft Calix paused her steps, tilting her head as she listened. Was it actually a voice she had heard? Calix shook her head, prepared to dismiss it when the voice echoed towards her again.

Hello! Is Emma Birch here?” the voice called again, louder this time. Calix strode forwards, eyes narrowed slightly as she scanned the hall in front of her. She offered a friendly smile to the young girl who appeared before her. Calix winked at her, pretending not to notice the girl’s obvious discomfort. “Walk with me the rest of the way?” she asked.

Hi, Calix!

Your application looks good so far, there's just one thing you'll need to edit before we can get you accepted.

We ask that people applying for fourth year and above write slightly longer biographies of a minimum of 300 words. Yours falls a little short of this (around 200 words). If you could expand your biography to meet this requirement, that would be great.

Once you've made the required change, please repost your entire revised application below, and we'll be more than happy to take another look. Thanks!

Name: Calix Glass

Birthday:July 18th, 1941

Hometown: Isle of Skye

Bloodline:
Pureblood

Magical Strength (pick one):
Charms

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Transfiguration

Year (pick two): 4th or 3rd

Biography:
Calix’s parents died when she was only a few years old, instantly orphaning her and her younger brother, Elias. The children were then adopted by her father’s brother and wife. The Glass’s own a well established distillery in the Highlands, and have done quite well for themselves financially. Unfortunately they were never able to have children of their own, but were more than happy to take in Elias and Calix, in spite of the circumstances. Lorna and Calum fostered a deep sense of kindness and compassion in Calix as a young child, and they have become a guiding moral compass for her. She loves her aunt and uncle dearly, and finds solace in the comfortable, easy relationship she shares with them. While her aunt can match her fiery wildness with her own, her uncle offers a gentler, more soothing nature.

A small, quiet part of her longs for the fragmented, distant memories of her parents, and she will often leave small gifts for them, whether it’s knotted twigs by the river, or a river-polished stone in a soft bed of moss. Her grief for her parents is a side she lets no one else see, especially Elias. She would rather him see her as the confident, self-assured older sister, and would rather be there for him when he needs her. She has a close relationship with her brother, in spite of the difference in their ages, and she often confides in him. Rarely bad tempered, Calix often finds humour in the smallest things. She is slow to anger, and generally a playful person, although her mischievous side isn’t always appreciated by others. Unfortunately for Elias, her younger brother often takes the brunt of her many jokes and tricks. While she might tease him mercilessly, Calix would do anything for her brother. There is no length she wouldn’t go to for her family, or the people she cares for.

A natural leader, she is quick to make friends and generally easy to get along with. Growing up in the outdoors of her aunt and uncle’s large estate fostered an innated fearlessness, and al almost oblivious disregard for her own mortality. She risks herself needlessly, and often carelessly, with little to no thought for the consequences. Calix prefers to be outside, engaged in physical activates, whether it’s exploring nature, flying, or tending to the magical creatures that wander onto her aunt and uncle’s land. She will complete her school work of out a sense of duty, but holds very little interest in her studies. She is often plagued by a driving sense of recklessness, and will escape the indoors as often as possible.
