Preferred Name: Ella

Height: 5' 2"Eye Colour: Brown Hair Colour: Brown, short, straight Physical Attributes: Short, what her Father calls "pleasantly plump", and her Mother calls "well padded", but not really obese. Pretty, but no more so than most girls her age. Her best feature is probably her smile, as with her heart-shaped face, her full lips, and her perfectly straight teeth, which are almost blindingly white, her smile gets her a lot of attention. Usual out of uniform attire: Robes or Muggle jeans, blouses and sweaters.
Warm, smiling, always ready to laugh at a joke or to comfort a friend. Not at all shy about letting her opinions be known, but tries to do it without hurting anyone's feelings whenever possible. Loves a good knock down, drag out debate on just about anything under the sun.
History:Ella was born in Aberdeen Scotland to her Muggle Mother who at that time had not really come to terms with her husband's magical abilities, and thus had separated from him. Her parents re-united shortly after her birth however, and have been together ever since, although both Ella and her older brother have often wished that they would divorce, just to get some peace and quiet. She comes from a mostly loving, but sometimes very argumentative family
Relationships:Pet/Familiar: Large gray Tabby cat named Princess Friends: Zacharias Smith, Etheria White, others Other: Ella is closer to her older brother and Father then she is her Mother, and the discovery of her magical abilities has not helped the situation. Ella always felt that her Mother, Jane, favoured her older Brother, Adam, and this is somewhat true, although not nearly as much as Ella believes. When Ella leaves Hogwarts for the summer, she usually stays with her Brother, Adam.

OtherNationality: Scotch/Irish, Mother is Irish, Father is Scottish Birthplace: Aberdeen Scotland Broom (if applicable): A Cleansweep, newest model Your characters view on Voldemort: Knows he must be stopped at all costs. Favourite subject and why: Herbology, has a real green thumb, and astronomy, has a serious fascination with the stars, and wants to visit them, someday, somehow. Most disliked subject and why: History of magic, puts her to sleep in seconds. Favourite Professor and why: Her head of house, Professor Sprout. Ella admires Professor Sprout's work ethic. Most disliked Professor and why: Severus Snape. She thinks he has some major personal and emotional issues that he wrongly takes out on students. She also thinks that the Hogwarts staff should do more about that problem, and that they let Snape get away with a lot. Favourite Professional/School Quidditch team: Loves her own house team, and never misses a match or practice session if she knows when they are happening. Hobbies: She absolutely loves gardening, nature, the stars, and flying. Hates being stuck in side with a lot of books to read, but if she can take a book outside, she's happy. Likes: Likes to fly, run, and swim. Also loves to play in the rain, which drives her Mother, a Muggle nurse, crazy at home. Also, loves to be out on starry nights, and often fantasizes about being able to fly to the stars. Dislikes: Ella doesn't like small, closed in places. She isn't actually seriously claustrophobic, but prefers bright, open places. Also hates pumpkin juice.
