Kelpie is a hufflepuff witch whose parents are a witch and wizard. Her mother has her own business selling sweets, but she's just started it so it's not very well know. I think she gets her cooking talent from her mother who owned a restaurant in Diagon Alley called "Magical Meals and where to find them!". The name of her mothers business is Chocowoga Factory. Nice and fresh  ;). Her father is an employee at the ministry of magic and he is in the Department of Magical Catastrophies. So before he spent a lot of the time having fun with his colleges, but now with You Know Who back, he has a lot of work and Kelpie does not see him often  :'(. She has two sibling, one in Slytherin and the other in huHufflepuff. As you can see, she is a pure blood *proud* (but she counts herself equal to muggle borns). She has a dog who can play the piano and has started a career as a singer so if you ever tern on the radio on witching hour, watch out for Betsy the magical dog. Kelpie enjoys playing exploading snap with her siblings and pet and reading the comics of Marvin the mad muggle. during the vacation. She is currently living in China, but shall still attend Hogwarts this year and not a school closer (when she was 11 she was in England so the normal thing was to send her to Hogwarts and it shouldn't change now). There is a bit about her. If you would like to know more just ask.

Andromida Hildegard Doranian (you can understand why she goes by AHD) was adopted by older wizard parents when her muggle parents were killed and tortured by Death Eaters.  The Doranian's were highly respected aurors, and were present at her parents killing, arriving too late to save them.  They found the baby girl in the smoldering ruin from Death Eaters' spells and took her as their own.  

Andrew and Hildegard had always wanted a child but had given up hope as they were well into their forties.  Knowing they had finally been given their one and only dream, they retired from hunting dark wizards to raise their child.  Thinking their muggle daughter would not have wizarding skills and not wanting her to be brought up in a world where she would not fit, they gave up the wizarding life as well.  AHD never knew a life beyond the muggle world in which she was raised - except for the strange things that would occasionally happen when her parents were not around . . .

It was quite a suprise to all, especially to AHD when on her 11th birthday, the 24th of September, an owl arrived with her invitation to join the next years class at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Her parents were beyond delight and spent the next year waiting for school to begin introducing her to the world they loved.  

Today AHD is a well adjusted first year student in Hufflepuff House (the house her adoptive parents happened to be in as well) - finally understanding why she has been able to make her hair grow, curl and change color at will since she was 6 and accidently cut her bangs.  Not wanting to get in trouble she 'wished' them to grow back before her mother saw.  Not only is she a witch, she is a Metamorphmagus.

Sorry. *Ahem*

Zeus was born in Greece on Mt. Olympus. He went to a muggle specialist school and studied ancient mythology and languages. At age 11 he studied at the greek Wizards school before his parents flew to England and transfered him to Hogwarts. His father is Professor of ancient wizard languages at Hogwarts and his mother is now in the order of the pheonix and is a ful time auror. His  life in hufflepuff is a happy one and he will stay there until he graduates and maybe even later. :D

[Kelpie, the Great Hall is a role-playing forum.  Like all the other RP forums, we are IC (in character).  That means that the bios that we have posted here are bios for our characters, not our real selves.  If you read through other people's bios, you can get a flavor for the kind of thing that we are trying to achieve here.  Feel free to change/modify your bio.]

[Also, 10 points to Zeus and AHD for their bios.  2 more to Zeus for changing his when he figured out what was going on.  Kelpie, I'll hold off on you in case you want to change yours.]

[12 to Kelpie as well -- 10 for the bio and 2 for the change.  Thanks!]

Ok, now you can see my real bio. I thought before that there might be some prying muggle eyes but as some people has written the truth I thought I should as well.

Panthre (she'd rather not tell her real name) is a very clumsy witch who lives part time with her muggle mom (a muggle nurse), dad (a muggle engineer), and younger sister and brother in the US. She first found out that she had magical abilities when her next door neighbor came over on her 11th birthday and handed her a letter inviting her to learn at a close by witchcraft and wizardry school. After explaining everything to a shocked Panthre and parents, her neighbor suggested that she transfer to Hogwarts instead since she had heard that it was a much better school.

So a couple weeks later, Panthre and her neighbor flew over to London, bought the necessary supplies along with Panthre's owl Chira, and she started her first very scary day in school as a Hufflepuff. She found out in her first year that her magic was different from everyone elses... Because she came from the US Panthre doesn't know what some British terms mean and she still can't understand why everyone drinks tea all the time.

Though still a bit friendless, she greatly enjoys learning magic (her favorite class being Care of Magical Creatures) and every year she spends the summer with her family in the US and the school year at Hogwarts.

Heather was discovered by the MoM as a lawyer practicing international law.  She was an American in London working on a corporate project.  Everyone thought she was a muggle, at first, until she spent a dinner with the Weasley family (who she met through Bill at a local book store), and she exhibited latent magical talents when she commented that she could control the weather (after Bill mentioned it had rained too long).  The Weasley family encouraged her to pursue her natural talents.  Dumbledore realized that she had natural abilities which had not been discovered or cultivated.  Howgarts recruited her to teach Muggle Studies to allow her to take classes in other magical areas to develop her natural magical talents.  Heather now works as a part time muggle lawyer and full time magical student.

Cerberus was named after the Thee Headed Dog, otherwise known as Fluffy's brother's friend's sister's son's son. This dog, Cerberi, ate Cerberus's parents just after her birth. Her grandmother, who has a sick sense of humour, decided that the child would bear the name of the parent's murderer (if we can call him a murderer, seeing that he's an animal... )

She studied at St. Jane's School for Dangerous Psychopaths, an international school for teenage wizards. There, she lived very happily with her pet kelpie.

Now, she is working as a shopkeeper in Nocturne Alley. She is currently single *winks to all those poor, poor men reading this* :D

*clears throat and looks round*. Is this the right place? *Reads the title of thread and then nods* yes. *clears throat again*
Auror Tonks was born to two half blood parents, her mother works with the ministry of magic and she discovers new breeds of magical creatures whereas AT's father is an unspeakable at the Ministry of Magic. This fascinates AT, as she wants to know what happens at her dad's work but she can't find out because it's all top secret. AT is currently a second year student at Hogwarts. She tends to drift off in classes but somehow manages to get Acceptables in end of year tests. She enjoys being in her house Hufflepuff. *looks around and scratches head* I think that's all. Yes it is. See everybody around. *Walks out of room and bumps into fellow student* It's your turn next...

Thinks about cursing AT for bumping into her and walks into the room* Sarah black is a first year Slytherin. Her parents are death eaters so these days she is often left alone while her parents are with their beloved Dark Lord. She is a pure blood of course, but she doesn't like her parents being ordered around by the Dark Lord because she thinks it's petty. She has long black hair and grey/blue eyes and a pale complexion. Ancient Runes is her favourite subject along with potions.

[Woohoo! Well done Angelina! except now you are a third year.]
"hem hem!"
Kaput is a hufflepuff who didn't even know there were such things as witches and wizards until she got her letter from Hogwarts (which explained why she had somehow melted a door a touch and made her sister float in the air when she was angry). As you have no doubt guessed, she is muggle-born. When she learnt she could do magic she learnt all the books off by heart and practiced some simple charms and things on the train to Hogwarts. She is doing very well in all subjects, but her best subject by far is charms.
"Wingardium Leviosa!" The paper she is reading her biography from flys four feet up in the air then descends slowly. Kaput catches it and then runs out of the room, tripping over her robes which are slightly too long for her. "I'm okay, don't worry!" she says and then runs the rest of the way to the Hufflepuff common room.

Humbert Jimlenski was born to wizarding parents who graduated from Durmstrang.  While his parents were skilled in the Dark Arts, they chose not to follow Lord Voldemort (viewing him as an amateur).  Jimlen, as his friends called him, rebelled and showed a keen talent for defense of the Dark Arts as a young child (his parents would try to use the Imperius Curse on him to keep him from crying and pooping his pants - Jimlen resisted the curse and continued to cry and poop).  From that day forward, the Jimlenski family realized that little Jimlen would not have a future at Durmstrang; Jimlen is the only member of his family to be accepted at Hogwarts.  Since his first day at Hogwarts, he has had an intense crush on Heather.

Angelina is about the average size for a third-year, and has long, brown hair and hazel eyes. Her favourite subjects are Defence against the Dark Arts and Charms (she can't decide between the two).

There we go. Sorry about the out of thread speech.

Heh, why not?

Xan Carivus was born into an English wizarding family, though their roots can be traced to Switzerland. Her parents both hold jobs in the Ministry of Magic as members of the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad. She displayed a talent for magic at a young age by blowing up a bunch of water balloons at a cousin’s birthday party. Needless to say, the party was a flop, and the cousin in question developed an irrational fear of said water balloons.  As a child, Xan would always try to bend or break the rules that her parents laid down for her ‘protection’. When she got to Hogwarts, she had already amassed a vast but rather eclectic knowledge of spells largely due to her sense of curiousity. She is currently a first-year Slytherin student.

Appearance ... dark brown hair, deep blue eyes, fairly short.
