Biography: (100 words minimum.)
Mara had an unfortunate start to life, as her birth caused her mother’s death. She has only ever known her mother to be a ghost and figures some mothers are just like that. She is closest to her father, as most of her siblings have already left for Hogwarts and her mother teaches there as well. Her sister Dahlia is still at home but doesn’t seem to like her very much. Mara figures that’s just what sisters are like, too.

With her siblings and mother not always around and her father working, Dahlia has spent most of her time at the Daycare. She enjoys playing with the other children there and doesn’t realize how different her family is from most others.

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:
Mara had been extra excited about going to the park today! She liked playing outside and hoped there’d be other kids her age there. Maybe even some of her daycare friends!

“Dahlia, let’s play ballet!”

Dahlia huffed at her. “That’s for kids.” Dahlia was too old to play with her, she always said. Mara frowned but decided to play on her own anyway. There wasn’t any music playing, but in Mara’s head, there was.

She danced around the park on her tip-toes. She always enjoyed the pictures of the people in tutus. She even had a ballerina on a music box that spun around! She twirled in a manner that she thought was elegant, but in reality, was very much not.


Mara stopped mid-spin and looked at the girl who had yelled at her.

“...Do you want to play?”

Mara grinned. “Sure! Do you know how to play ballet?” She asked excitedly.

How did you find us? Recommendation
