Lyric Marie St. Germaine was one of those people who had the strange ability to know things they shouldn't. It was a curious trait, but nonetheless a trying one. Poor Lyric was a bit tactless in displaying it, for she was always asking awkward questions or bringing up things you could have sworn you never told anyone. This was especially true with teachers: Lyric's thirst for knowledge about the professors' pasts and personal lives seemed unquenchable.
In general, Lyric was a bit of an oddball. A Muggle-born girl, she was eager to learn everything she could. However, she was dreadful at nearly all of her classes (save Divination). Her first year, the Sorting Hat had placed her in Hufflepuff, but there was always a side of her personality that would make one think she belonged in an entirely different house-she was bold, and noble, like a Gryffindor; very clever, such as with Ravenclaw (although her marks never showed it); and incredibly cunning, like a Slytherin. She often joked that the Sorting Hat had been so confused as to where to put her that he just tossed her into Hufflepuff to have done with it.
Other than when she was asking a teacher some outlandish question, Lyric didn't attract much attention. She was rather plain, but not necessarily ugly-she had mousy brown hair that was cut short, like a boy's, with light brown eyes and very fair skin. With nothing remarkably gorgeous about her, she hadn't caught the attention of many of the boys in her year (or any other, for that matter). However, this didn't seem to faze Lyric in the slightest.
When Lyric entered her sixth year at Hogwarts, she had only scraped three O.W.L.s, in Divination, Care of Magical Creatures, and Potions. She began preparing for her N.E.W.T.s, all the while asking the same terribly uncomfortable questions ("Professor Hagrid, seeing as your mum was a giantess, how would she and your father have been able to make you?" "Professor McGonagall, whatever happened to Mister McGonagall?").
Perhaps her worst victim, though, was Professor Severus Snape.
