CHARACTER INFORMATION
Character name: Julia Cole

Previous and/or Current Character(s) if applicable: Mara Cole & Co.

Character age: 27

Character education: Hogwarts - Hufflepuff, class of 1956

Strength and weaknesses (details please): While Julia may seem like she's all strengths on paper, that couldn't be further from the truth. Her success at Hogwarts led her to believe that she'd have success in the real world as well. Now she is uncertain of if she'll ever achieve anything in life or if her glory days are behind her.

Physical description: Julia has a look of someone who could be young, but looks a little more aged due to hardships in life. She has shoulder-length red hair and blue eyes, though a bit duller than they used to be. She rarely smiles, smirks perhaps, but doesn't smile very often. She puts some effort into her clothing style, attempting to make herself appear more put together than she actually is.

Personality (nice, rude, funny etc. Paragraph please.): Julia can seem a bit aloof when she first meets people. Of course, she's never mean, but she prefers not to let anyone get too close to her as she'd rather let others believe her past trauma has made her strong instead of how weak it has truthfully made her.

Hopes and dreams. Why are you teaching at Hogwarts?: Since graduation (with the exception of a 10-month stay in Azkaban), Julia has been working at St. George's and The Hag's Head. While she loves her work at St. George's, working at the Hag's Head all these years have drained her. She wants to find a better job and feel useful instead of dealing with the degenerates that visit the Hag's Head.

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

As a child, Julia had the same hopes and dreams as most children. One day, she'd grow up, get married, have children, have a career she enjoyed, and always have a happy life. After all, that's how it had worked for her parents. She saw no reason why her life wouldn't follow the same path.

She was the oldest of all her siblings and was used to helping take care of the younger ones, though she'd rather be out adventuring and exploring. But still, she accepted her responsibility as oldest sibling. It was a bit strange for her when she headed to Hogwarts. Being away from her family. Sure she still had to share a room, but it was different than sharing with Miranda, the next oldest Cole, who she didn't always get along with.

However, when Julia was 14, she witnessed her mother's death as her youngest sister was born. It made Julia rethink that picture of a happy life with a husband and kids. How could she have kids after seeing that? And she knew any man she possibly married would want to have kids. And in a flash, all her hopes and dreams disappeared. She decided she'd focus on a good career. She could at least have that. So she studied, and threw herself into every curricular she could. She even learned to become an Animagus by the age of 17. She was the Hufflepuff Quidditch captain for 4 years, Head Girl, and several other honors. She seemed to have her pick of any career she wanted.

But then another life-changing incident occurred just a couple of months before graduation. The werewolf attack. Her Head of House had sent her to go help with the problem, which in the midst of it, felt like an honor. She felt like due to her Animagus ability, she'd be able to easily help with the werewolf. But unfortunately she was brought down by the creature and spent weeks recovering in St. Mungo's afterwards. She felt weakened by the attack, and not just physically. The school had counted on her, and she failed them. It didn't matter what fancy badges they gave her, she was still a failure.

The only good thing that came from the incident was a job opportunity with St. George's. While she enjoys her work there, she still feels empty inside, and working nights and weekends at The Hag's Head certainly doesn't help.

She's tried to feel useful, like she is doing good. But the last time she tried (which included bird-napping a mistreated Fwooper from someone high enough in society to cause a major fuss about it), she wound up in Azkaban. She feels limited by her current jobs and wants to find her purpose in life. So when she learned of an opening at Hogwarts, she figured that perhaps teaching others could help her find that purpose. After all, she had wanted kids all those years ago, and she supposed teaching kids and helping them grow up was the next best thing.

SAMPLE ROLEPLAY
(Please respond to to this in third person past tense. Do not write the other characters' reactions. Only your own.)

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:

Oh god, she was running late. The person filling in for her at the Hag's Head was late, which made Julia have to stay until they showed up, then she had to quickly go home and change into something much nicer for this interview and then make her way to Hogwarts. It didn't even leave time for her to be nervous until she made her way into Ivanova's office.

"I am so sorry," she said, all the nerves hitting her at once. She hadn't been here in so long, or faced with the Headmistress, but she suddenly felt like a student again being summoned to the Headmistresses office. "I know there is no excuse for my tardiness."

Julia reached into her satchel and pulled out her resume. "Here is my resume, and some of my accomplishments since graduation," she said, handing the paper to the Headmistress. Most of these accomplishments were her work at St. George's. She desperately hoped Ivanova hadn't been keeping tabs on her. If she'd known about her time in Azkaban, she was sure she wouldn't get the position.

The Coles aren't a large family, with all of Vera's family lost in the Time warp, and Asher's family mostly lives in America. Hopefully as the kids get older, the tree will expand, but for now it's rather small.

TAKEN
ASHER MAX COLE
42 / Pureblood / Gryffindor '36
Asher was born in Oklahoma as one of three triplets. He eventually found his way into Hogwarts, where he met Vera. Asher is one of the kindest people you will ever meet and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. Before the Time Warp, he was a musician, but after the time warp hit, his musical style was too radical, and he became a Sergeant in the 42nd Broom Battalion.



TAKEN
VERA HUDSON COLE
Forever 34 / Muggleborn / Hufflepuff '36
Vera was born third oldest out of 7 kids to two Catholic muggles in London. Vera is very motherly and loves her children very much. However, she can get a bit of a temper sometimes, but not very often.
Vera died during childbirth when Mara was born and became a ghost. She spent the first year of her afterlife at home since she couldn’t bear to bring herself away from her newborn. However, it was too painful that she couldn’t even touch her baby, and her toddler (Dahlia) didn’t understand why mommy couldn’t pick her up anymore.
The next year she applied to be a Magical Art Professor at Hogwarts, so she could at least watch over her older kids. However, Art proved to be a bit difficult in her state, so she taught Astronomy for a few years, but started to miss the arts. She now teaches Magical Theatre at Hogwarts.



TAKEN
JULIA ROSE COLE
22 / Halfblood / Hufflepuff '56
Julia is adventurous and rather fiesty. She is very loyal to her close friends, but she has her share of enemies due to her competitive nature. At Hogwarts, she achieved a plethora of achievements, including Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain for 4 years (and winning the Quidditch cup her 7th year!), Duelling referee, Spellbound editor, Hospital Wing Apothecary, Prefect, Head Girl, and becoming an Animagus (horse) the summer before her 7th year. At the end of her 7th year, she was helping to defend Hogwarts from the werewolf that found its way in and wound up getting scratched pretty badly on her side and spent a couple of weeks at St. Mungo’s afterwards.
 She currently works at St. George’s Animal Reserve and Rehabilitation, specializing in the equine creatures. She also works part-time as a bartender at the Hag’s Head. She enjoys flirting with guys (and sometimes girls) and enjoys snogging for fun, but has no interest in pursuing a relationship with anyone.



TAKEN
MIRANDA FAITH COLE
18 / Halfblood / Beauxbatons '60
A motherly sort of character always looking out for people, brought up with the 1950s ideals of girls needing to know how to cook, clean and sew. Materialistic and in love with the idea of love — naive in that she still believes that she’ll one day find a rich, handsome man to marry. Takes good care of her belongings and is proud of the things she is good at. She’s her mother’s favourite and bosses her younger siblings around, but is not the oldest and is actually quite jealous of Julia for how good she is at magic (Mandy’s average at best). A flirt who gets very flustered the second someone flirts back. Vain and meddles in other people’s business but always with the intent to help and has a good heart. Extroverted and loves attention, but does not mind sharing it, just as long as it’s not with Julia.



TAKEN
LAWRENCE RUSSELL COLE
15 / Halfblood / Gryffindor
Ren was a typical boy for most of his life. He enjoyed having fun, going on adventures, and getting as messy as possible. When he was 13, he started dating Astro Marquis and things were great. Until the end of his 3rd year when she suddenly died and became a ghost. He’s felt like a mess ever since, lost, unsure of what to do anymore. He’s slowly getting better, but still has no idea what he even wants to do anymore.



AVAILABLE
DAHLIA JANE COLE
10-13 / Halfblood / Unsorted
Dahlia was only a toddler when her mother died. She couldn’t understand why her mum couldn’t pick her up, and why every time she tried to hug her, she was met with a chill instead. Ever since, Dahlia tends to shy away from friends hugging her and things like that. She became rather reclusive and would keep close to Ren when they were at the Daycare together. He would try to get her to socialize more, and it worked a little, but then he left to go to Hogwarts, leaving her to fend for herself. She doesn’t like Mara very much, since she caused Vera’s death.



TAKEN
MARA LAINE COLE
8 / Halfblood / Unsorted
Mara is an aspiring ballerina who just wants to have fun and eat sweets with her friends. She knows her mother is a ghost, but just thinks it’s pretty common to have a ghost as a mom. She is also lives blissfully unaware that she caused her mother’s death. She doesn’t know her older sisters very well. She likes Ren, and she doesn’t understand why Dahlia doesn’t like her and wants to be friends with her.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
Option 1:
It was the weekend, which for most people meant hanging out with friends. Julia hadn’t made any friends yet, and had spent most of her free time exploring the grounds. She still had many places she had yet to explore, and wanted to find and learn everything she could about this large castle! It was pretty cold outside, too cold to go exploring out there. A few weeks ago, she went in search of the highest point of the castle she could find. Today she figured she’d aim for the lowest. There had been rumors of a ghost down there, and she wondered if they were true. After a while of searching through corridors and stairs, she made her way to a damp, grimy area. The air was thick and the smell was pungent. She had definitely never been here before. Julia went to try to open a wooden door, but it was a bit stuck. She kept trying to push on it, but to no avail. Julia tried to recall the rumors about the ghost more. It was a Slytherin girl. She had heard many different stories as to how she died. Eaten by a snake, burned to death, killed in an underground duel… What was her name again?

“Hello! Is Emma Birch there?”

That was it! Emma Birch! It sounded like another girl’s voice coming from around the corner.

“I sure hope so! Otherwise my trip down here wasn’t worth it!” Julia walked down towards where she heard the other voice and saw a girl who looked to be about her age.

“A bit drab down here, don’t you think?”

Julia Cole

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Vera was born October 16, 1955 to Anthony Hudson and Ellen Pearce. She came from a very Catholic family, and was the third of seven children. Her father was in the military and moved around, and when Vera was 9, they moved to France. As Vera grew older and received her Beauxbatons letter, her parents disapproved, but Vera’s maternal grandfather convinced her parents she should go, revealing that his sister had also been a witch.

Vera spent her first two years of magic school at Beauxbatons, until they moved back to England when Vera was thirteen, sending her to Hogwarts. There she was sorted into Hufflepuff, and through her adventurous nature made many friends of all houses. She often worked in the Infirmary and also was a Beater in Quidditch for a couple of years. She participated in Dueling Club as well, and eventually became a Hufflepuff prefect.

After many lost loves, Vera met a Gryffindor around her 5th or 6th year, Asher Cole. He was a year ahead of her and graduated to become an Auror. During her 7th year, he proposed and she said yes. During this year, she made plans with her younger sister, Rosemary, to meet for coffee and discuss wedding plans. Vera was closest with Rosemary of her siblings, and she was going to be her maid of honor. However, once at the coffee shop, there was an explosion. Vera made it out, but Rosemary didn’t.

After Vera graduated, she became and nurse. She and Asher got married, and shortly afterwards was the Time Warp. At first, it was very upsetting to Vera, being years behind the rest of her muggle family, but as time went on, the memories of the event faded. To her knowledge, her father died in war, and her siblings and mother died in other acts of war.

About a year after the time warp, Vera gave birth to her first daughter, Julia. When Julia was about two, the family moved out of muggle London and into the magical community to try to escape the war. Vera would try to teach Julia about the muggle world, but it was difficult. Vera feared losing what little family she had left and never let Julia go too far from her sight.

About 3 years after leaving the muggle world, Vera had another daughter, Rosemary. When the British Force happened, Vera didn’t know where else to turn. It suddenly wasn’t safe anywhere. She homeschooled Julia and Rosemary and didn’t let them participate in any activities outside the home. Due to this, the two girls became socially inept. When Julia’s Hogwarts letter came in, Vera was terrified, but Asher reassured her that Julia would be safe at Hogwarts. Vera reluctantly agreed with Asher that Julia needs to learn how to properly use magic, and Asher convinced Vera to try to get out more herself and apply to St. Mungo’s.


Roleplay: 
You come across one of these posts on the site. Please select one & reply as your character:

Option One -
Amelia Nixon was many things, but she was never a pushover reporter that people could just usher away with a busy shuffle past. She was dedicated and eager to cut to the very middle of the current political tensions because she was Amelia Nixon and her articles would most certainly become front page material.

“Sir, please! It’s for the Prophet, how do you feel-“

Another one brushed passed her, the shuffling busy masses making their way through Diagon Alley for the lunchtime rush. This had been the best possible time to get people, but none of them were giving her anything to go with.

Only momentarily discouraged, the short red headed lady took a seat on a nearby bench. Her quill resting in her left hand and her notepad ready in the opposite hand. Amelia pouted, tapping the quill against her leg as she scanned the waves of people for somebody - anybody - who looked like they had something to say.

She had been dreaming of her name in bold print, Amelia Nixon: The Source of Today’s Tomorrow. She had been dreaming of the larger office and the secretaries that would fetch her the morning coffee and fetch her anything she needed. The VIP interviews and the most exclusive press passes. But all Amelia had was a page seventeen piece on the rising number of frogs in London.

Hardened by a day of no success, the reporter stood up and started to trod off down the alley. A loose stone on the cobble path caught her heel, sending the distraught girl toppling down to the ground.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!” she yelled as she tried desperately to recover her shoe frantically in the middle of the Diagon Alley moving crowds.


Roleplay Response:
Vera cautiously made her way through Diagon Alley. With everything going on lately, she just wanted to be at home, snuggling her five-year-old girl, but her husband, Ash, insisted she should use this time to get out more and find a job to keep her busy. How could she have sent her little girl out into this kind of world? She had just said goodbye to her oldest daughter the other day as she left for Hogwarts. But the world nowadays was not the same peaceful and fun-loving world it was when she was younger. She never had to worry about bombs going off as a kid. Well, not until she was in her late teen years. Just being out of the house and amid all these people was making her start to panic. So many people populated in one area? It was a perfect target for an attack. She stopped for a second to breathe and relax. Ever since the attack she survived as a teenager, her paranoia had grown.

Soon, she saw some reporter from the Prophet bustling down the street. Vera tried to keep out of her line of sight and avoided eye contact at all cost. She had no desire to deal with any one today. She still had to get to The Leaky Cauldron and get to London if she ever wanted to apply for St. Mungo’s. She was absolutely dreading it. She hadn’t stepped foot in London in years. What if something happened? She knew the war was over, but they also weren’t in war when the original bombing happened.

If she came home having done nothing, though, Asher would never let her hear the end of it. He’d say she’d need to go out, meet people, and face her fears. Easy for a Gryffindor Auror maybe, but not for her.

She finally took a deep breath and headed towards the Leaky Cauldron. She just had to make it to the Leaky Cauldron, then through the door. Small steps. Easy enough.

Until she heard a voice cry from a nearby alley for help due to a broken heel. “No, no, no!” Vera thought to herself. If she stopped, she wasn’t sure if she could muster up the courage again to continue to London. But, what kind of Healer would she be if she ignored cries for help?

Vera rushed down the alley where the voice had come from and saw the reporter on the ground. Why did it have to be her? Vera sighed with annoyance and walked over to the reporter.

“Are you alright? Let me help you up.”
Vera started to grab the woman’s arm and help.
