Biography: (100 words minimum.)
Karilyn is the second and youngest child in the Knight family, nearly eligible to enter Hogwarts and begin her life as a witch of the wizarding world.

Karilyn, much like her sister, has spent the entirety of her life thus far exposed to and around magic. Although not yet eligible to enter Hogwarts, needing to wait just another few months to enroll. Karilyn, much like her sister, has aspirations to become a part of something larger than she is within the world. Her sister Khloe has been a huge inspiration to her to join the ministry, and Karilyn has also shown some fondness of her sister's animagus form.

Although still very young and inexperienced, Karilyn houses a passion and enthusiasm for magic, and has the type of kind of benevolent soul much prized within the community.

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:
Godric Park had always been one of Karilyn's favourite locations to be brought to, though perhaps not for the reasons her parents might have thought. While a lot of other kids preferred to play with one another, the young Karilyn was wont to read books whilst her parents socialised. It wasn't that the girl didn't want to play with any of the other children, it was that she was far too anxious. The young Knight hadn't quite picked up on the finer nuances of socialising, and the premise was frequently intimidating. It was much easier to silently enjoy a book until it was time to go home.

That changed the moment the cry for Karilyn's attention jolted her out of her immersion. There was a jerk of startled alarm from the child as she was abruptly called out to. Her head lifted from her book, staring with wide-eyed anxiety as she was approached. It took several moments for the question to register in Karilyn's mind, dumbfounded as she was by the outburst and the inquiry. Her gaze was fixated on the approaching girl, and after a few moments of silence, Karilyn's book clapped close with the bookmark neatly placed to mark her spot.

"S-Sure," she replied nervously. "Wh-... what did you want to do?"

Hi, Karilyn!

Your application looks great, I just wanted to clarify a couple of things before we can get you accepted:

1) Karilyn's age is listed as 11. Will she still be 11 on 1 September 1959 (i.e. next term)?

2) In your biography, you write that Karilyn is 'not yet eligible to enter Hogwarts, needing to wait just another few months to enroll.' If she's 11, she would already have received her letter, so she would technically already be enrolled to start in September 1959. Did you just mean that it would be another few months before she officially started her studies at Hogwarts rather than a few months before she could be accepted into Hogwarts? If so, that's fine -- could you just post below (no need to repost the whole application) to confirm the answers to both of these questions?

Thanks!

Hello, Calypso!

1) I believe she should be, yes? If she would be turning 12, she would be too old? If that’s incorrect just let me know, or adjust her age appropriately to whatever would be needed to enter! ❤️ I thought there would be a class coming up in April that she would be eligible to enter.

2) It was intended to be it would be a few months before the next term started for her to start her studies, yes! I suppose I did type that wrong, didn’t I? I can fix that when I get home! Just let me know what all I should change!
