Etheria is protective, fiercely so, particularly of younger children and close friends. She is very smart, but also quite sensitive, and far better at recognizing the feelings of others then she is at dealing with her own. She is getting better, though. She is quiet, seemingly distant and aloof, but she is slowly learning how to relax and have fun, but even after all her years at Hogwarts, it still feels like a struggle for her. In spite of being raised in a convent full of other young cast out girls, Etheria always felt alone there, and now envies those with large families. She wishes nothing more then to perhaps have a sister, or she would even tolerate a brother.
In the middle of winter, fifteen years ago, a baby girl was left on the doorstep of an old Convent in North London. The newborn little girl was wrapped in a blanket, with a note that said simply, Etheria Miriam White. The Nuns took this to mean the child's name, and called her such.
The Mother Superior of the Convent, a sour and unpleasant old woman with a chip on her shoulder concerning just about everything, , took an almost instant and inexplicable dislike to the child, and usually singled her out for particularly harsh or cruel treatment.
Once the child reached seven years, strange things occasionally happened, mostly to the old Mother Superior. Her underwear was completely frozen one night while she slept, and her hair was once turned a bright orange. But even the more mundane accidents and disrepairs, common to such an old building, were laid at the little girl's doorstep by the old Nun.
In her ninth year, Etheria's life improved a little bit when a new assistant to the Mother Superior arrived at the Convent. Sister Elizabeth Rose was in her late twenties, pretty, and far more sweet natured than the old Mother Superior. She is the only person from the Convent whom Etheria feel close too.
The girl received a mysterious letter and visit from the representative of a school calling itself Hogwarts. The woman informed a startled Etheria, the old Mother Superior and young Sister Elizabeth that the child was a witch, and invited to attend the best school for Witchcraft and Wizardry around.Etheria had many adjustment problems when she started at Hogwarts, partly because she had never gone to school with boys, and partly because she kept finding nasty quotation concerning witches marked in her bible. Though she does not look at it nearly as often as she used to do, Professor Flitwick insists on inspecting it at the start of each year.
Relationships:Pet/Familiar: Tawny owl called Isis Friends: Ella Sitchlid, Zach Smith, Imber Toyer, Maeve Rollins, Kaddy McAlister, others Crush: Zacharias Smith Other: Before entering Hogwarts, Etheria was a Convent girl, raised all her life in a strict orphanage. Coming to Hogwarts was quite a culture shock for her, and not just because she had to learn to accept the magical world as reality, not just fantasy. She knows next to nothing about her real family, but is desperate to learn more about who she is, and where she came from. She really enjoys helping others, and often tutors younger Hogwarts students in various subjects.
