First name: Isolde

Last name: Ledin

Blood status: Muggle born

Age: 14

House: Papillonlisse

History: Isolde is the eldest daughter of Dan and Marie Ledin, and has twelve siblings, four sisters, and eight brothers, two of which are older than her. She was first seen to have magical abilities around the age of five, having wished she could play the piano beautifully, like her mother, and succeeding on the first try, playing Pachelbel Canon. Since Isolde has so many siblings, her family was never very wealthy. They only just scraped by, but when Isolde was accepted into Beauxbaton, she thought her parents were more so happy on the account of one less mouth to feed. Isolde owns a owl named Elise, and a small toad she found a few days ago.

Personality: Isolde is very extroverted and friendly, sometimes over trusting. Her loyalty is always placed in those she meets, and she has no fears (or so she thinks). Gifted with the ability to play various instruments, Isolde is usually seen playing a flute, piccolo, triangle, or really any other hand held instrument. Isolde isn’t one to ignore a dare, being prideful sometimes. She talks very sophisticatedly, and loves to smile.

Appearance: Isolde has long, dark wavy hair, and bright blue eyes. She has pale skin, and a few freckles on her nose. The girl reaches 5, 4”, and is still growing. Her style is preppy and pretty, and she never leaves her dorm without an instrument. Isolde’s wand is a twelve inch maple, unicorn core, and elegantly carved.

First name: Skye

Last name: Reagan

Blood Status: Muggleborn

Age: 11 (1st year)

House: I don't know, can you sort her?

History: Skye was born to a very kind Muggle family. Her parents are named Star and Jake, and she has an older sister named Autumn. She was very different from the rest of them, but they accepted her no matter what. Star and Jake were shocked when Autumn received the Beauxbatons acceptance letter, and they were pleased to watch her excel in her studies. Skye felt left out as her parents fawned over Autumn, and she felt like Autumn was better than she was. She was excited when she started making strange things happen when she was 7, as Autumn had done the same thing, at the same age. Her theory that she was a witch was proven correct when she turned 11 in August. She proceeded to buy all the supplies she needed, which included a dogwood wand with a phoenix feather core.

Personality: Skye is very social, and prefers to be the center of attention all the time. She is often the life of the party. She is excitable, and is almost always talking. She loves to tell stories, both true and untrue. She's loyal and will never turn away from a friend, and she would be heartbroken if anyone she was friends with, severed connections with her. She often feels left out, but easily fixes it by barging into a random conversation. She is a child genius, and often helps Autumn with her Beauxbatons homework.

Appearance: Skye is tall and in shape, with tanned skin that is speckled with freckles. Her hair is in a pixie cut, dyed cream-white. Her eyes are dark blue, bordered by semi-long eyelashes. She has a birthmark shaped like a star above her left eye. She can be easily described as gorgeous, and she knows it.

First name: Autumn

Last name: Reagan

Blood Status: Muggleborn

Age: 14 (4th year)

House: Bellefeuille

History: Autumn was born to a very kind Muggle family. Her parents are named Star and Jake, and she has a younger sister named Skye. When she was 5, she was diagnosed with dyslexia. She started making strange things happen when she was 8, and was very confused and distressed. However, everything was explained when she received mail for the first time on her 11th birthday in May. She was accepted into Beauxbatons. She was a witch! She was excited, and immediately bought everything she needed, which included an apple wand with a dragon heartstring core.

Personality: Autumn is very shy, and struggles with her homework often due to her dyslexia. She is grateful to everyone who helps her and is very kind and sweet. She is sensitive, and is often hurt by even friendly insults. She is quiet and tries not to speak to people. The only people she likes to talk to is her family.

Appearance: Autumn is average. Average height, average weight, average "peach" skin color with an average number of freckles, and even the average chocolate brown eyes. The only significant thing about her appearance is her hair, which is waist-length and bright orange. She takes pride in it, and frequently takes care of it.

First name: Emma

Last name: Shine

Blood Status: pureblood

Age: 2

House: OmbreLune

History: Emma was born to a pureblood family, the youngest kid of 4, and she immediately accepted the family that strove for perfection. Her family always pushed her to be her best, and she loved the challenge. At age 11, she had grown her hair super long to donate to kids with cancer, but hadn't gotten the chance by the time she received her acceptance letter. She was super excited, but was dismayed to see how the Houses interacted. They barely spoke, and their conversations were argued and yelled. She became an introvert, hiding in the back of the class to avoid conflict. At the end of 1st year, she made a pact to never fight with anyone, ever.

Personality: Emma is a perfectionist, and gets extremely upset whenever something doesn't work out. She has minor OCD, which is more than enough to make her super angry when anything is out of place. She is ambitious and always gets her way, although she's not spoiled. She is super smart and logical. Her curiosity gets her in trouble more than anything, but often times, she relies on it to get her through things. She is able to manipulate people, being cunning to make them change their mind if she wants them to.

Appearance: Emma is an average height for her age. She has long, flowing red hair, always worn in a bun so it doesn't get in her way. Her eyes are bright emerald, beautiful enough to rival Harry Potter's green eyes. Her skin is light "peach", speckled with tan freckles. The freckles are clustered thickly at her cheeks, but are evenly scattered everywhere else.

The Faithful

First name: Santino

Last name: Reyes

Blood Status: Pure Blood

Age: 16

House: OmbreLune

History: Despite his prestigious background; Santino grew up in a muggle-world for the first couple years of his life, his father being a wizard as well as a former competitive Quidditch player, while his mother was a muggle who worked as a model. Nonetheless he had a fulfilling childhood living on the coast of San Sebastian in Spain. Life wasn't too dangerous considering the luxurious house and if there was any magic in the house, it would have been quickly dealt with by Santino's father who ran a very professional life style at home. His parents played a secretive game on the wizarding world - they knew how dangerous it could be at times and didn't want their precious son to be put in harms way, however the decision was down to Santino when he received an admission letter from Beauxbaton Academy.

Deciding to join the school, he was quick to be educated on his father's legacy on the Quidditch team and was intrigued to find out what the game was about, since the first time he sat on a broom - he has never missed a practice session or game since - proclaiming himself to be the star player of his year.

Personality: Inheriting his father's ambition and learning fro his mother's business, Santino is comfortable with the house he is placed in at Beauxbaton - always striving to improve himself in every way and takes critical feedback in a professional manner. His emotions are quite difficult to read at times as the only true time he is showing any feeling is when h e is training or playing a match of Quidditch. However, at times he does question the perception everyone else has on the OmbreLune house and is one to combat the typical view that everyone has on it - he tries his best to be open about things but can occasionally come across as blunt to his peers.

Appearance: Standing at a height of 5'8ft with a natural bronze tan to his skin, Santino has a toned body type from training at school and also using the gym he has back home while on break from his studies. His dark brown hair is cut into a short fade on the sides, while on top it is styled into a side parted quiff that is slicked back off his face using hair gel - his eyesbrows are carefully plucked to be bold and make his hazel eyes look sharp, his head is strong and chiselled.

First name: Peter

Last name: Dreyfus

Blood Status: (Pureblood, Halfblood, Muggleborn,) Pureblood

Age: 15

House: Papillonlisse

History: (Include Family and Personal History here)

Peter was born into one of the oldest Wizarding families, the Dreyfus family. The Dreyfus family are considered blood traitors, due to them both giving up most of their wealth, and the ideals that come with blood purity. His father, Elieser Dreyfus, is a self publishing author, and thought he's not that famous, he is starting to become a household name. His mother, Emmanuelle Dreyfus, is a reporter for the Daily Prophet, who is quite good at her job. He has only one brother, Amos, who is right now the age of nine.

Personality: (Strength, Flaws, Hobbies, anything that has to do with your character) Peter is a quiet, calm, and timid boy. He is contemplative, cynical, thoughtful, and, at times, sarcastic to people.

Strengths: His powers of observation and deduction are on par with fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, and his ways of finding out information would rival a certain Animagus reporter, traits which he inherited from his mother. Peter has an unbreakable sense of justice, always standing up to those who he see's get treated poorly, though he always ends up getting his ass kicked.

Flaws: His cynical and sarcastic nature has lead him to have difficulty making friends. He can be very callous and cruel to people, not really caring if they live or die. His cold and sarcastic attitude prevents him from meeting people.

Hobbies: He likes to read and write, as his dream is to be one of the best writers in France. He also likes to listen to music, as well as sing along to it, and he likes to play the piano, and he also has an eye for photography.

Appearance: (May be a link or a detailed description or both) Peter is 5'7 and has a lanky physique. He has unkempt dirty blonde hair, dark blue eyes, and fair skin.

When he's not wearing the Beauxbaton uniform, he'll wear a baker boy cap, worn and dirty tanned jacked that's too big on him, baggy jeans, and penny loafers.

First Name: Ethan

Last Name: Morreau

Blood Status: Pureblood

Age:16

House: Ombrelune

House History: Unlike the De Vlads, the House of Death, or the Pendragons, the House of Money, the Morreaus are the true House of Power. Beginning from Henri Morreau, the French family spread quickly throughout all of Europe, especially Austria, France, Belgium, Romania and finally England, taking part in the Muggle Royal families and aristocrats. The Morreaus were well known for their academic developments and breakthroughs, skilled scholars and famed leaders along with their authentic beauty that represents Western Europe. Marcus Morreau, Ethan's grandfather worked as a French Diplomat for a cover job, and so does Ethan's father-Charlesmagne Morreau. The Head of House developed a close relationship with Valois De Vlad and Uther Pendragon, thus creating a balance and harmony among the three houses. This caused Charlesmagne Morreau to build his own corporation-and this was met with less contempt (his corporation was based on the arts and culture), but with the same amount of success. House Morreau and House Vlad are tied together, as their corporations are sisters of each other. House Morreau also dealt with many affairs relating to the mafia-they are on the same boat with the Pendragons as well. As a result, the Morreaus are favored, and worshipped, with less haters than House Vlad or House Pendragon.

Personal History: Ethan was born as third son to Charlesmagne Morreau and Anastasia Duprè, on October 13th. He showed incredible talent and interest in the human body and loved to dissect things-which lead him to be viewed as a cold genius. Talented in his studies and proud, Ethan kept only a few friends-including Gunther De Vlad of the Vlad family, and Ivanhoe Pendragon. He entered Beauxbatons like the rest of his family as expected, and admires his eldest brother Ulic-Corporal-to no end.

Personality; He's quiet, observative and studious. Unlike his cheery brother in Hogwarts, or boisterous pal in Durmstrang, Ethan tends to be the watchful one. That doesn't mean he's timid or shy. On the contrary, he's rather like a hawk-lurking to find prey with a keen eye. He's also proud, and doesn't like admitting that he's wrong. He's popular with the ladies-due to his apppearance, and manners, but not interested in romance.

Appearance: Ethan is tall like the rest of his family-standing at 189cms. He has dark-brown locks, wavy at the ends, and his skin is marble white with a slight hue of pink to it. He also has emerald-colored eyes with a depth to them, and a rare smile that softens the viewer. In fact, Ethan is surely handsome-but he's the least beautiful of the six Morreau children. Which is why he takes praise related to appearance in a somewhat shocked tone.

Personal Data (Student)

First name: Léa

Last name: Morin

Blood Status:Muggleborn/Unknown

Age: 14

House: I'm not as familiar with the houses yet as I'd like to be, so I'm going to let you sort her

History: (Include Family and Personal History here)

Lives in Spain with her mother and little brother. She spends her vacations there (assuming they are similar to the ones at Hogwarts) because even though she likes her fellow classmates there, she misses her family too much. Though she has little information on the matter, due to the fact her mother adopted her at a young age she wonders if her birth parent(s) was/were (a) muggle(s), or had magical abilities as well. Her mother is an artist, working mostly with 3-D sculptures crafted out of clay or wire. Léa hopes to use her magic to work with her mother's creations one day. Her brother is nine and has shown no sign of magic, though he and Léa are half siblings.

Personality: (Strength, Flaws, Hobbies, anything that has to do with your character)

Likes to play around at art with her mother, though is not quite as talented in that area. She was good at science in muggle school, and hopes to continue learning about the subject or something similar. She enjoys being outdoors or in large rooms. Doesn't like being in a cramped space, but has no problem being in a room with lots of people as long as it's not too physically crowded. Basically, breathing room and personal space please. Can be extremely stubborn and often has trouble seeing another person's point of view. She also is one of those people who look up at the trees instead of down at the ground and walks into things or steps on things a lot.

Fears: Claustrophobic, Loss of breath, Drowning (She is subject to specific phobia anxiety)

Best class: Herbology

Worst class, Transfiguration

Extracurricular: Magical Theory

Appearance: (May be a link or a detailed description or both)

Waist length, thick, straight dark brown hair. She usually wears it loose. She keeps it out of her face with a variety of simple headbands of different colors. She has big brown eyes and thick brows and lashes. Her skin is olive with a light brown pigment. She's tall for her age, and generally scrawny. She has strong arms but weak legs and endurance. She usual wears solid color t shirts (with a light jacket if it's cold) and black leggings. Her tendency of tree climbing and forgetting to avoid puddles before it's too late limits her footwear to sneakers and snow/rain boots.

Wand: 9",ash, kelpie hair, inflexible

Pet: Australian Shepherd puppy and a Budgerigar

First name: Mimir

Last name: Merveilleux

Blood Status: (Pureblood, Halfblood,

Muggle-born,) Muggleborn

Age: (must be past the age of 20 to apply) 26.

Subject they teach: Ancient Runes.

History: (Include Family and Personal History here)

Born to a French scholar and a Icelandic linguistic in August 2nd, 1992, Mimir grew up around books, spending most of his lonely childhood in Brittany. Like most intellectually gifted students, he was bullied in his elementary school years, not having much friends, resulting in low self-esteem. Though, where he made up for in lack of social skills, he made up for in academics, becoming one of the smartest kids in his town.

When he turned eleven, like other kids, the Deputy Headmaster visited his home to inform him of the unorthodox, yet intriguing, world of witchcraft and wizardry that would soon become him home. He was accepted into Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, and he immediately went to buy his school supplies; he hoped that Beauxbatons would be different, and he would make friends. This, however, would turn out to not be a case. His Beauxbatons education was rather lonely, and was often ridiculed for his skeleton like frame. However, this did not deter him in his studies in the slightest. He did well in his classes, especially with Ancient Runes, Alchemy, and History of Magic, and went on to win academic awards, become a prefect, and eventually became Head Boy.

After graduating from Beauxbatons, he went to have an interview at the British Ministry of Magic, but was recruited by the Wizarding mercenary group known as the MarkedWater Company as a translator. Mimir, being penniless at the time, took the job, and flew to Egypt where the group would spend the next five years excavating old pyramids in search of the fabled “Book of the Dead”. Sometime later, Mimir would figure out the man in charge of the mercenary company’s plan to make an army of revived Egyptians, and wipe out Muggles. Being Muggleborn, Mimir would later betray the group by sealing the expedition inside of a pyramid with a powerful charm, and fled back to France, not uttering a word to anyone.

Not wanting to risk being found by working for the Ministry, he decided to go under the protection of Madame Odette Verlaine, and take the position of Ancient Runes.

Personality: (Strength, Flaws, Hobbies, anything that has to do with your character.)

Personally: Mimir is the socially awkward and idealistic Ancient Runes professor at Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. An ex student of OmbréLune, Mimir is quite ambitious, wanting to recreate Nicholas Flamel’s Magnum Opus, the Philosophers Stone. He is also logical, having a knack for riddle solving, and preferring to use words to resolve conflict rather than violence. He’s rather cowardly, not really being a fighter, but he’ll have the odd moment of bravery when he see’s something that is incredibly unjust. He lived in constant paranoia, being jumpy whenever someone approaches him out of nowhere.

Despite his rather cowardice nature, Mimir is good-natured, and selfless.

When in class or giving a speech, he is succinct and articulate in his words, but in a social setting, he’ll talk too fast, jumbles over his words, or just remain quiet.

Strengths: Mimir is extremely intelligent, having an IQ of 225. He’s a pro at Non Verbal magic, a skill he’s learned in order to defend himself while he was at school. He’s also an Occuluman, a skill that he’s learned after the events in Cairo so the MarkedWaters group will have difficulty finding him. Though teaching Ancient Runes, Mimir is a prodigy in Alchemy.

Weaknesses: Though knowing how to do Non Verbals, he’s a crappy fighter, and will most likely run from conflict, letting others fight for him.. He’s weak willed, and is easily manipulated. He suffers from paranoia that his former employers will come after him. He’s also quite clumsy and careless, hence why he DIDN’T CHANGE HIS NAME EVEN THOUGH MERCENARIES COULD BE AFTER HIM!

Hobbies: His hobbies include

Fears: Dementors, death, his past “employers” coming after him, and his dreams being crushed.

Appearance: (May be a link or a detailed description or both)

Mimir stands about 6’1, and is very lanky in frame, resembling a bowtruckle. He has deep brown eyes, and light brown hair he keeps in a elegant curtain haircut. He wears thin framed circular glasses, and has an “adorkable” smile. He’s usually seen wearing bowties, waistcoats, brown suit jackets, brown leather Oxfords, and slacks.

Wand: Walnut wood with a horned serpent horn core, 7 inch, unyielding.

Pet(optional): A barn owl named Huginn.

Personal information: (Teacher)

First name:Josselin

Last name:Abbadie

Blood Status: Halfblood

Age: 30

Subject they teach: Defense Against The Dark Arts

History: (Include Family and Personal History here)

Her mother, Mara, was of chamorro descent and moved to france for school. There she met Josselin's father, Lucas. When Josselin was two, Mara held a party to see some of her school friends whom she'd been avoiding since her marriage. They'd had a little too much to drink, and one of her friends let it slip that they were all witches and Lucas freaked. Mara became equally hysteric and tried to calm him down but it just scared him and they started to fight. Out of instinct one of Mara's friends drew her wand and sent a spell at him. Convinced they'd end up severely hurting him, she shot oblivious curses at all of them, and went into hiding. Good move. Mara became closed off, and she and Josselin were never close.

When Josselin was 11 she entered Beauxbaton, and made strong friendships that stayed stable for most of her education. She was a good enough student, and did well on her owls and newts, wouldn't this make her mother proud? Maybe. It's hard to tell when you spend your entire summer vacation at a friends house, and your mother never writes. When she graduated from school, she spent ten years working misc. jobs, both in the wizarding and muggle world. At one time she taught english at a muggle school, and became close friends with the principal/headmistress/whatever they're called in france. It turns out she was a squib and knew Josselin was a witch in hiding. She helps Josselin with her self doubt on taking a job at Beauxbaton. Before then, she had let her perfectionism stop her from pursuing her dreams, and she had avoided accepting the job.

Personality: (Strength, Flaws, Hobbies, anything that has to do with your character

She is rather down to earth with her students, and insists they call her by her first name. She is pretty open, but knows how to use a guilt trip to it's full power. She can be pretty scary if you've broken her trust. She enjoys practicing the precision of her spell casting, reading detective stories, and reading gory documents on tragic accidents and murders. Because of these...odd hobbies she often has trouble connecting with what the students are into. She also knits rather well, but has an awfully horrendous idea of color scheme.

Fears: Failing, being lied to

Appearance:

She entered the classroom right as the clock struck 3. Her long brown hair swished behind her as she strode into the room. The room was silent. Taking her place at the front of the room, her light brown eyes scanned the room. She stood at 5 ft 9 inches, and claimed every bit of her height down to the millimeter. Her golden brown hands rested on her hips, and her eyebrows arched for a minute before relaxing in a neutral position. "Well, I have never seen a class get this silent before. I'm either excelling at this on my first day or doing something terribly wrong."

She laughed a friendly laugh, warm and tinkly, like a bell ringing. Anyone paying enough attention could just make out the restlessness in her perfect posture, the way her eyes flitted from face to face in a daze. Giving her the impression she was both extremely focussed, and not quite there all at once. The way her voice was edged with worry. Of how she had to bite her tongue before every sentence, just so she wouldn't say something stupid. But no one noticed. Their expressions showed a strained sort of attention, a practiced one, not an interested one. Who cared about how she taught this class as long as she did it well enough for them to pass. No, she must either be perfectly normal, or perfectly grand. There was no middle ground. Well, Josselin was ready for the challenge.

Wand: 16", Apple, White River Monster spine, stiff

Pet(optional): A California Kingsnake. The name's Merlin, and he just wants to sleep and look cute.

PERSONAL DATA - Student

Full name: Adelé Delacroix

Blood Status: Pureblood

Age: 16

House: OmbreLune

Family History: The House of Delacroix is an ancient French wizarding family based in the village of Saint-Rosaire (located close to Saint-Véran) that can be traced back to the Middle Ages. From the surname itself, the family used to be devotees of monasticism, although they now no longer continue the old religious practices. They later supported the Renaissance movements, which was the turning point for the Delacroix family to grow in power like never before. They were worshipped by the people for their magical abilities, believing the family to be saints sent from the Heavens. Their contribution to counter the Black Plague reaffirmed their mighty status, which in turn caused the people to fear the family.

The Delacroix went into a decline during the witch-hunt period, where the people rose up to overthrow the family's rule. Everything the family had worked for in centuries - all their prized possessions, their status and power - were destroyed and razed to the ground in one night, driving the Delacroix into hiding to save whatever that remained in the family. Even when their survival was at stake, the Delacroix continued to be adamant about the preservation of the family's blood purity, and their distrust towards muggle-borns grew exponentially after the witch-hunt incident.

Currently, the House of Delacroix is headed by Pierre Delacroix, and his wife is Véronica (nee Beaufort). The Beaufort is a minor pureblood family that served under their master, the Delacroix.

Personal History: Adele is the younger of the twins, and has an older brother named André. Unlike the kind-hearted and shy Andre who is deemed as a failure and shame to the Delacroix family, the charismatic iron maiden Adele is chosen to be the heiress to the House. As such, Adele has been utterly spoiled by her doting parents and relatives of their extended family. She would always get her way and get everything that she wanted no matter what, else she would punish those who stopped her in the worst way possible. Even if the House of Delacroix wasn't as it used to be and had lost all the glamor that it once had long ago, Adele was still proud to be born in an ancient and noble pureblood family. She was homeschooled until the age of ten before she was sent to the Beauxbaton Academy of Magic to further her magical education.

At school, Adele is the de facto "Queen of Beauxbaton" for her swollen vanity. Being homeschooled throughout her childhood life before her debut at the academy, Adele had no knowledge of how to socialize with her peers properly - and she thought that she didn't need to, for there was nothing to stop Adele from achieving her ends. Most of her so-called "friends" weren't exactly real friends, but a group of misfits consisting of those whom she had bullied into submission, and those who were blinded by her unearthly beauty. Adele is said to be a mistress of the Dark Arts due to her fearsome reputation for torturing students who incur her wrath. (In reality, she only uses non-lethal hexes and has never performed unforgivable curses to anyone - yet - but rumors are often twisted by gossipers.)

Personality: A bitchy femme fatale, and Adele knows it - well enough to use everything in her arsenal to get her way. From her appearance, her charisma, to her smarts, she spares no effort to pursue the goal she wants to reach, the things she wants in her very hands. She is also very sadistic, and has no qualms to hurt people for personal entertainment. She enjoys watching people writhing in agony, squashing everything about them to nothing under her very feet. She is also vengeful when someone hurts her; she has even made a motto to live by: "If you screw me, I'll screw you right back - with double payback. That's my way of doing things." Her twin brother, Andre, is the only person who can retain whatever humanity is left in the rotten princess, though no one knows that Adele has a forbidden crush for him, and she's willing to do whatever it takes to protect him... even it means to destroy the world.

(GOD THIS TOOK SO LONG)

Personal Data (Student)

First name: Blanche

Last name: Ravenholdt

Blood Status: Pureblood

Age: 16, sixth year

House: OmbreLune

History: (God this took so long to make (and now I have a f%#$-ton of French pureblood families to create) but I'm pretty happy with it)

Family History: The Ravenholdts are an American pureblood family with origins in New Hampshire. They are much more progressive than many other families when it comes to blood purity.This line originated just as World War II broke out in the Muggle world, when William Ravenholdt, former Horned Serpent, and the second born to Geraldine and Joseph Ravenholdt, moved to France. His older brother, Samuel, would continue the Ravenholdt line in America.

Here in Paris, William met the pureblood heiress Genevieve Aubertin, and they formed a deep friendship. Genevieve, a former Papillonlisse, though spoiled as a child, had a deep understanding of life, and had always wanted to do something for herself, without her family. Her adventurous spirit was the Yang to William's Yin, as he was a calmer, quieter spirit, used to being in the shadow of his older brother. The two fell in love, marrying in a grand fashion after the war ended.

Marrying an Aubertin was a beneficial decision for the French Ravenholdt line, as William soared up the pureblood social ladder. The Ravenholdts are very close to four other pureblood families in France, the Aubertins, Cantrelles, the Viverettes, and the Aujouerres (they call themselves the House of Five, or,Le Parlement de Cinq, but this could change if more families ally themselves with them).

Genevieve and William would later have three children: Orville (the triplet's great-grandfather), Katriane, and Fiona. Katriane and Fiona did have families of their own, and they are still on the Ravenholdt family tree, despite their last names and the change in their descendants' blood. For now, we'll focus on Orville's line.

Orville was a hardworking, curious child, who was sorted into Bellefeuille during his time at Beauxbatons. He'd fall in love with his best friend from school, Gisele Aujouerre. They had four children, Toby, Hugo, Madeleine, and Genevieve (jr.).

Madeleine would marry Henri Frisse, the youngest in the family (which held very little political power), but he spooked at her announcement of pregnancy and left her just after (they are enemies of the House of Five now, for obvious reasons). She used her maiden name once more, and her children, fraternal twins Gustave and Colette. Gustave would marry Christine Aubertin, technically a distant relative (the great grandchild of Genevieve the first's second cousin), but it was so far, no one really cared, straight out of school. And now, FiNaLLy, the triplets are born.

Personal History: Blanche is the eldest of the sisters, born 12 minutes before Flora and 27 minutes before Darcie. She grew up knowing she'd never get the full attention of her parents, and spent her time trying to become a 'model pureblood' for her parents, as she is the heir, technically. She took advantage of the fact that her parents don't give her their full attention, and enjoys secretly rebelling against them.

When the triplets were eleven years old, they spent a summer abroad in America with their relatives and learned to duel. Blanche became an expert, Darcie nearly matching her, and Flora an absolute dunce at it. However, it was here that they met the Annesley family. At the time, Anita Annesley had been the HDMLE, and had wanted to show her daughter, Maya, what dueling was like. The triplets loved coddling the nine-year-old, and even let them borrow their wands to try it herself (it didn't go well). They still keep in touch with Maya, who now lives in London, a fourth-year Gryffindor, and Blanche gives her lots of dueling advice.

That September, the triplets began schooling at Beauxbatons. Blanche had an inkling that they wouldn't be in the same Houses, but she was surprised that they were all in a different house! Not to say that she didn't want to be an OmbreLune, she definitely identified with that house the most, but she has expected at least two of them in the same house. Though the girls didn't get as much time together, they still maintained a close bond.Both Blanche and Flora did very well on their OWLs (or whatever the French equivalent is), though Darcie got the best grades by far. She is looking at a career as a Curse-Breaker for Gringotts bank, but her plans aren't set in stone.

Personality:

Strengths: It's very easy to tell why Blanche is in OmbreLune. She's very ambitious and constantly strives for perfection in anything she does. Though she is a very emotional person, she knows to keep her feelings hidden and look at things logically. She is often the peacekeeper, as Flora and Darcie are so similar, they feud often.

Flaws: Blanche isn't very good at expressing herself, and it can be difficult for her to break out of her cold outer shell. She often comes across as a snob, who doesn't like other people, though that isn't necessarily always true. She is horrible with humor, often being too snarky and hurting the people around her.

Fears: Betrayal and the loss of her loved ones, along with an unnatural fear of wasps.

Best class: Defense Against the Dark Arts

Worst class: Care of Magical Creatures

Extracurricular: Dueling Club

Appearance: Blanche has pale skin, with a smatter of freckles around her nose and upper cheeks. She has blond hair that she keeps shoulder-length, and green eyes. She's tall and looks quite fit.

Wand: 12 inch Apple Wood, Phoenix Feather core, unyielding

Pet: Black cat, Trixxie


Personal Data (Student)

First name: Flora

Last name: Ravenholdt

Blood Status: Pureblood

Age: 16, sixth year

House: Bellefeuille

History: (See Family History Above)

Personal History: Middle-child and attention-seeker, Flora has always felt inferior to her sisters. She was never out of the ordinary, and just cruised through life her own way. She has the worst grades of the three, though they are still very good. When it comes to her relationship with Maya, she is like the advice columnist. Maya can come to her for advice.

After their sorting, Flora was happy to be away from her sisters, allowing herself to chart her own path and not worry about them. She is currently looking at a career path in Healing.

Personality:

Strengths: Curious and outgoing, Flora is approachable and fun to be around! She loves nature and is a bit of a hippie. She knows that grades aren't everything, and tries to live a life without stress. She excels in Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures. (Very Luna-esque, though she isn't really 'loony.')

Flaws: Flora suffers from low self-esteem. She constantly compares herself with her sisters, and wonders why she can't be as good as them. She's very bad at dueling, and not amazing at DADA either. Finally, Flora can be too laid back at times, and her work may suffer from it.

Fears: Getting left behind, the dark.

Best class: Herbology

Worst class: DADA

Extracurricular: We'll see.

Appearance: Short and willowy, Flora has suntanned skin, and, like her sisters, green eyes and freckles. She's got reddish-brown, curly, shoulder-length hair that she usually leaves out.

Wand: 12-inch Black Walnut with a Phoenix Feather core, swishy

Pet: Snowy Owl, Jillie


Personal Data (Student)

First name: Darcie

Last name: Ravenholdt

Blood Status: Pureblood

Age: 16, sixth year

House: Papillonlisse

History: (See Family History Above)

Personal History: Youngest of the triplets, Darcie is the most emotional and imaginative, but also the quietest. She enjoys spending time in her own head. Darcie formed a very close relationship with Maya, and the two of them bond over Quidditch and life in general!

Darcie was the saddest when they were separated at school, crying during her first night, though she settled in quickly, and realized how well the house fit her. She found her passion as a chaser for the Quidditch Team, and focuses on school as much as possible. As a result, Darcie does the best academically, though she has no idea what to do with her life after Beauxbatons!

Personality:

Strengths: Creative and free-spirited, Darcie brings a new perspective to her family. She has varying interests, and is very attuned to others. She enjoys the arts. She writes short stories (and is involved with an international book club with Maya and some Ilvermorny students) and sings with a muggle choir during the summers, though she is also strong academically and physically (making her seem like a gigantic Mary-Sue, don't worry, her flaws will balance them out, I hope). She is a definite Papillonlisse!

Flaws: Darcie has been diagnosed with anxiety, and she's pretty sure she has some form of depression. She's very indecisive and self-conscious, scared of what others think of her. She has Imposter Syndrome, often feeling like she doesn't deserve the praise she gets, and is very shy and socially awkward. Thoughts of suicide have arisen in the past, and they are not going away. Darcie is very emotional and sensitive; the smallest things can snowball into her feeling like a nothing. Others see her as anti-social, and Darcie has few real friends as a result. Darcie doesn't think she makes an impact, and has very low self-esteem.

Fears: Failure, large crowds, enclosed spaces

Best class: DADA, Transfiguration

Worst class: History of Magic

Extracurricular: Quidditch, Duelling Club

Appearance: Darcie is tall and has an athletic build. She has lightly tanned, freckled skin and slightly sunken in green eyes. She has layered, straight, jet black hair, often left out or put up in a high ponytail.

Wand: 12 inch Spruce wand with a Phoenix Feather core, Pliant

Pet: A British Shorthair, Adree

Name: Gilbert de Leveque.

Blood Status: (Pureblood, Halfblood, Muggleborn,) Pureblood.

Age: 15

House: OmbreLune.

History: ( Family and Personal History here)

Gilbert was born into a wealthy family in Chavanic-Lafayette in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, and is the grandson of the famed wizard general, Marquis de Leveque, who fought in the first wizarding war, and son of the war hero, Baldwin de Leveque. From a young age, he had massive shoes to fill as his family pressured him to be becoming a great soldier like those before him. His family lineage is one of the few oldest bloodlines that’s not considered royalty, despite their wealth. The household followed strict conservative beliefs, having the men be the strongest while the women work at home. The males of the house often boast of their reputation of chivalry and courage, and were well known to disregard their own safety, and run head-first into danger.

Of course, this lack of regard for ones own self-being often lead to an early death for the Leveque males. Gilbert’s grandfather died in the First Wizarding World when he ran in front of his squadron to take the Killing Curse for him; Gilbert’s father died in the Second Wizarding World, but not before instilling Gillbert the family’s martial traditions. After his father’s death, Gilbert went on to enroll in Beauxbatons at age eleven, and at age fourteen Gilbert became a military officer, keeping up with the family tradition. Though he has it all, Gilbert longs for a life full of peril and excitement.

Personality: (Strength, Flaws, Hobbies, anything that has to do with your character)

Gilbert has two sides to him: The strict military officer and the quirky frat boy. He’s stoic and solemn when in business, always following directions and being serious throughout the duration of his assignment. That is. . . until he’s off duty, then he turns into a rebellious, flamboyant, and exuberant party animal; Being a rowdy drinker and womanizer. Thanks to his party animal lifestyle, he often finds himself in the aftermath of less desirable and sometimes odd situations.

Though proud to be a Leveque, he wishes to make a name for himself without having the Leveque name tied to him, which often leads to him being impulsive and reckless, like those before him in some hasty attempt to establish a legacy. Though, this does not mean he’s stupid. He’s well read in military knowledge and offensive magic. He’s also an incredibly ambitious revolutionary type, being inspired by tales from the famous Auror Harry Potter, and how he established Dumbledore’s Army in order to defy hid DADA Teacher; After hearing of this tale, he longs to join a cause he can get behind.

Thanks to his conservative upbringing, he is often shocked to see someone of the opposite sex do something that doesn’t fit his stereotype of a girl, but still R E S P E C T S them.

Fears: To disappoint his family, and to bring shame to his bloodline.

Best class: Martial Magic.

Worst class: Arithimancy.

Extracurricular: Duelling club.

Appearance: (May be a link or a detailed description or both)

Gilbert is a handsome young man of color, having a lush mop of black hair he keeps in a black dreadlock topknot; He stands at 5’10, and is well built, being more toned than muscular. His eyes are deep, chocolatey brown, nearly black in nature; He has a thick French accent, but you can still understand him when he’s speaking English.

Wand: Aspen wood with a unicorn hair, 12 1/2 inches.
