Biography: (100 words minimum.)
Arlene May gave birth to Rosamund Ruth May on Christmas day, 1951, eleven years after having her first child. Both Arlene and her husband, Rex, were busy people and they worked a lot to support the family. Because of this, Rosa Ruth was mostly raised by the middle child and squib, Constance 'Annie' May. Annie wasn't much of a parent though, being only nine when Rosamund was born.

Even though Annie tried her best, Rosamund became envious of her friends. She chalked her sister's failures up to her lack of magical ability although in reality if Annie hadn't been a squib she would have attended Hogwarts leaving no one to care for Rosie.

Rosamund's childhood was very different from either of her sisters'. During the times when Annie was away on rare visits to see Esther or busy with school Rosie stayed with her Aunt and Uncle. Ruth and Roy May were much more prejudiced than Rosamund's parents, and their pureblood elitist ideas rubbed off on Rosie.

When Annie turned seventeen, the two of them (Rosamund and Annie) moved into an apartment on Diagon Alley. Both Esther and Constance had been raised in Birmingham around muggles, and barely spared a passing thought toward blood status. But living around other wizards, combined with Annie's subpar parenting has given Rosie a different perspective.

The Mays are a little known pureblood family. They were once powerful, rich, and influential. But several generations later, after poor money management, and a gambling problem, most people have never heard of them. But Rosamund is determined to change that.

She dreams of joining Yarborough and living in a mansion. Hosting dinner parties in fancy gowns and dancing in lavish chandelier-lit ballrooms. Marrying rich and engaging in family politics. And in her mind, that all starts by making connections with other pureblood eight-year-olds.

Rosamund Ruth is nothing like either of her older sisters. She's not quiet and insecure like Annie or sad, boring, and bitter like her oldest sister Esther. Rosie Ruth is highly emotional and highly opinionated. Easily excitable but a crybaby. But that doesn't mean she's fragile.

Rosie stands up against anything and everything she thinks is wrong (although sometimes her distinctions between right and wrong are questionable) even if it brings her to tears, which it almost always does. She can be blunt at times although she does try to be kind. Rosamund is rather intense but if that's your cup of tea you'll find she's a fiercely loyal friend. (Sometimes too loyal, it can be difficult to cut things off with her.)

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?"

Rosamund was enjoying a rare sunny day in Godric Park, having briefly escaped Annie's supervision. She swore Annie had eyes in the back of her head. It didn't matter how sneaky she was if her older sister was in the room, or even in the same building, she would get caught before she started whatever it was she was trying to hide. She didn't hide things often, but Annie was much too strict. And a little extra sugar never hurt.

Rosie meandered through the park, looking for something to do. She plopped down on a park bench with a dejected sigh. This little adventure was turning out to be rather boring. Maybe Annie was right. Maybe she should have just stayed home. It was lonely without anyone to talk to.

Rosamund Ruth felt tears prickle at her eyes and her chin started to quiver. This day was turning out to be just awful. she hoped that Annie would come to find her soon.

"You!"

Rosie startled and looked up quickly, the harsh tone just enough to send her tears falling from her eyes. She blinked blearily with a large frown plastered over her delicate face.

"...Do you want to play?"

The girl's words instantly melted Rosamund's woe and she sprang up from the bench excitedly. She wiped her tears away sloppily and skipped over to the other girl, her frown turned upside down.

"Yes, yes, yes!" Rosie Ruth said with much more excitement than would be expected of someone with tearstained cheeks, "What're we playing?"
