The Life and Times of Marold Healum


Marold of course was born to an all wizarding family and like many of those in her line before her, she follows the footsteps of her ancestry and resides in Slytherin house.

Marold enjoys a host of many things, but it's her ambition that makes her a true Slytherin.  To her, the ends justify the means.  Some would call her a rather pretty young girl, but with a sharp tongue.  She was taught to speak her mind and not care what others think of her, aftery all, why should she?  She is after all better than them.  ;)

At times she can seem haughty, but deep down she does care.  Unknown to her Slytherin commrads, Marold spends her holidays and summers helping out and volunteering with many organizations across the world.  She may be ambitious but not all ambition is bad.

Her favorite subject in school would be arithmancy.  Nothing better to challenge the mind than logic.  There are also the workouts and dance steps she practices to the annoyance of her dorm mates.  

When she finishes her time at Hogwarts, she is unsure of what it is she wishes to pursue.   She wishes to do charity work, but how is she to help the family fortune grow if she keeps giving the money away?

Gfruple Whelsh (g is silent), was born in a pure blood family, although all her relatives and such have all been on the tradition on being in slytherin, there were a couple who were chosen into gryffindor, and for that, they have been erased from ever being family.

Gfruple can be somewhat arrogant as she honours those who didnt betray her family some what, but sometimes she cant  be mean every minute of her life. she likes to take care of things for herself, and without anyone's help, she's satisfied, nomatter how horrible. Gfruple takes herself over what she defines as friends, and usually those friends just stand back and say nothing.

Gfruple comes from canada, but moved to england as her parents decided they would be better off.

Minerva Isiltari

Minerva is a Slytherin born into a pureblood family but raised by her half-blood stepfather after her mother died fighting for Voldemort and her father was sent to Azkaban by the Ministry when it was discovered that he was a Death Eater. Naturally, Minerva holds some doubts about the Dark Lord considering the disastrous impact he has had on her family and her childhood. However, she is a dedicated Slytherin who has no doubts about her House identity.

Having gone to a Muggle school for early education, she holds Muggles and Muggle-borns in a higher regard than the majority of her House and family. Her favorite subject at her Muggle school was French, and she spent her second year of wizard school at Beauxbatons in France. Her favorite magical subject is Potions because of it's subtlety, for a lack of subtlety has been her family's downfall in the past (it was discovered that her father was a Death Eater when he cursed a whole, rather centrally located, Muggle café in broad daylight). As far as sports, she prefers running to any more "complicated" sports because of a focus on individual performances and because she enjoys "accidentally" tripping her opponents and kicking them with her cross country running spikes.

Upon completing her studies at Hogwarts, Minerva plans to study the Dark Arts and Defense Against the Dark Arts in the hopes of someday becoming one of the most powerful witches ever. And if that fails, at least she has her family fortune to sustain her in the future.
I'm a runner... my sport is your sport's punishment.

stormy (actually called susie) was a problem child. born into a respectable family of muggles no one knew she was a witch. her dad was a car sales man and her mum a housewife, she was an only child. she lived in sheffield in a detatched house where she went to a public school. she had no friends because of her firey temper and if you upset her she would probably turn your ears green. at the age of ten she accidnetly blew up her house and her parents were amazed when she was excepted into hogwarts.
she is now learning how to control her temper and her powers, her favourite subject is care of magical creatures and her worst subject is quidditch practice (she is scared of heights). her parents do not approve of hogwarts and she only goes home over the summer.
wat do u think, is it ok?

ack.. no one has done this in so long, but it looks fun so i'll just do it anyways.  ;D

F.D. (as she prefers to be called) is a Pureblood born British witch. Her Mum was in Gryfendor and her father like her was a slytherin. He dad was a reformed Death eater before he was killed by YKW. Her mother was a auror, pretty strange combo there huh? She grew up with her mother, not knowing her father, but knowing about him and what he did to redeem himself. F.D. has a strong belief that all the house should stand united. She loves her house and has as much house pride as anyone. *polishes her sliver snake pin on her robes* She feels sort of conflicted between her parents two houses, not really sure where she belongs. She generaly keeps to herself and studies, her favorite subject being potions. She enjoys cheering on her quditch team, but can't play becuase she is so clumsy. F.D. enjoys her time at Hogwarts and dreads going home for summer term.

Hi I am Crystalis, I am a 15 year old girl and was brought up in the New forest, I am an orphan and was brought up by a witch Griselda, no one is sure of my heritage, but I cannot be wholey human or wizard. I have visions and can do things with my mind but am completely useless at curses. I can do elemental magic and am extremely good with animals, I am engaged to a wizard who was expelled from mhowarts but is now employed at the ministry of magic, he has a fiery temper and set proffessor Umbridges wig on fire, by mistake of course. But he is extremely gifted so the ministry wanted him, I do not know what he does though but I'm sure its bad. I am usually extremely gentle but when I loose my temper I completely blow, I am also dyslexic, I love to read and have bred a pet unicorn but sadly it got taken away to an animal sanctuary, I plan to breed more. The only potion I can do is for healing the others always have disastrous effects. My dream is to discover who my parents were. I have natural golden streaks in my hair and my eyes are a deep forest green, I am extremely small and very pale, if this is a clue I would be glad of some one to solve it for me. I must be half something as well as human.

Okay, mine is a long one, but suffer through it.  >:D

Agatha Dioux Bones, Susan’s mother, was an American squib who worked for the Daily Prophet.  Susan’s father Aldous Bones came from a long line of British wizards; he and his elder sister and brother, Amelia and Edgar, easily landed jobs with the Ministry of Magic’s Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

The Bones family became targets for He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named when Edgar, a Slytherin alumnus from Hogwarts, fell in love with and married a Muggle whose memory he was made to alter (after a peculiar incident regarding Spaghetti-O’s and lawn darts).  

In 1979 Edgar and Aldous were assigned guard duty of the Tralawney Prediction.  Soon after this honor, Agatha Bones gave birth to Susan.  Aldous thought he could never be happier.

An assault on the Ministry of Magic by a group of Death Eaters proved disastrous for the brothers, as both were killed by a witch named Beatrix Lestrange.  Agatha took Susan and went into hiding in the Muggle city of Chicago, U.S.A.

But it was impossible to hide toddler Susan’s growing abilities.  Agatha tried desperately to make a “normal” home for herself and her daughter, but Susan was obviously “different”: tipping over statues, making quarters fly out of pay phones, and once accidentally setting their small apartment on fire.  

When Susan turned eleven, she received an owl with her acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  It took some convincing, but Agatha agreed to fly back with her to the U.K.  The two stayed with Aldous’s sister Amelia, who had just been promoted to the Head of the MLE.

Maybe it was the shock of being back in the world of magic, but Agatha Bones became obsessed with destroying Lestrange the way she had destroyed her family.  Leaving Susan with her sister-in-law, Agatha actually tried to break into Azkaban (she was the first, and probably will be the last).  Dementors caught her at the gates.  

Whatever Agatha Bones heard/saw, it was enough to drive her mad and make her a permanent resident at St. Mungo’s.  Susan, understandably, is reluctant to speak of this.

Susan was placed in the custody of her Aunt Amelia.  She is now a Hogwarts student, and is determined to become part of the MLE after graduation.  Her favorite class is Charms, and she works on a student newspaper in her spare time (when she has any).

NOTE:
It took some time for the Sorting Hat to decide where she was to go.  At first she was pronounced a Hufflepuff, but she refused.  She was then placed in Gryffindor, but refused that as well.  Finally the Sorting Hat told young Susan that since she was so troublesome, Slytherin would be the place to go.  As this is the House her father and uncle were in (her aunt was in Hufflepuff), she was only too happy to accept.

Morgan was born in a tiny town named Chambers that nobody knew about unless you lived there. When Morgan turned ten, her wizarding parents grew suspicious of whether Morgan would have wizarding powers or not. As they had never told Morgan she was witch, they decided to send her to her Grandma's for a "vacation" is what they told her.

Truthfully, however, they wanted her to be qualified to attend Hogwarts, where they went to school as young children. On the following summer, after being sent to her Grandma's, an owl came soaring in the window. Morgan was dumbfounded, as she'd never seen anything so beautiful in her life. There was a piece of parchment tied to the owls legs, and so she took it off. The letter was admission to attend Hogwarts. Minutes later, her Grandma was telling her the whole story of how her parents were wizards, but they wanted her to have a "normal" childhood, so they took her to the one place where they were sure there were no wizards. A small town in the plains of the USA. The next week her Grandma took her to Diagon Alley where she purchased everything from her new Firebolt (yes, her parents were very rich in the wizarding world), her robes, books, and even her wand which had one hair of Unicorn's tail and one hair of a Phoenix, which was one of the rarest of them all. It was at the wand shop where Morgan found out about her distant cousin who was the same age as she. The name Hermione Granger. Discovering that she had a cousin (she had been told her mom & dad were both only children), she was delighted and wanted nothing more than to be in the same "house" as her cousin. Unfortunately, the sorting hat put Morgan in Hufflepuff and Hermione in Gryffindor. However, a few days later, Morgan got a call from Ping to visit Ping's office, which is where the sorting hat was kept. Ping told her that often times the sorting hat would put one in Hufflepuff when they belong in Gryffindor, or one in Gryffindor when they belong in Hufflepuff ... Morgan was instantly delighted, by the thought of getting to be with some new House-mates.  :roll: Anyway, Morgan put on the hat again and it started talking to her....
Hmm...lot's of courage, somewhat shy...no, that's very correct, Ping, she's not a Hufflepuff...I say... GRYFFINDOR!
Morgan took off the hat once again and placed it on the table. Cho Chung escorted her to the picture of the Fat Lady. Morgan instantly this would be a VERY interesting life to live...

Deedra was born into a very well- bred family, though she is half vampire, so she has some immunities others don't, such as going into the sunlight, and experiences no bad results by going near a crucifix.

Her father, a vampire, never told her who her mother was before he died, although her grandmother (father's mother) always swore it was Narcissa Black, now Narcissa Malfoy. Which would make Deedra Draco's half sister. Lucius refuses to acknowledge such a child, as does her mother (who is Narcissa) and the half brother Draco.

See what I mean about being well- bred?

As a young girl she excelled in potion brewing and transfiguration, given her vampiric-ness. You know, the whole bat thing?

Silver is poison, but can be easily be expelled by a bit of wolfbane.

Deedra thinks she is a great addition to the Slytherin house, and hopes that Professor Snape will be as good to her as he is to her wicked half-brother. ;D
