Gryffindor Crest.png
Full Name: Janus Morgan Clampton
Age: 14 turning 15, 16th October 1981, Libra
Year: 4th
Gender: Female
Blood Status: Muggleborn
Wand Description: 11 inches, Willow wood, Unicorn hair core

Height: 5' 5"

Eye Colour: Gray
Hair Colour: Ash blonde
Physical Attributes: Just your average fourteen year old girl. Her hair is thick, and she wears her hair cropped as short as she can possibly keep it. She also wears contacts. Janus has several small scars on both her calves, caused by frequently falling out of and/or sliding down trees when she was a little girl.


Friendly, curious. You can probably also call her either determined and/or persistent, if you want to be nice, or incredibly stubborn. She likes to see something through to its end, even if she knows that end will be unpleasant, once she gets going with it. Hates to sit still for too long, but not exactly hyperactive, either.


Janus was raised by her single Muggle parent, her Mother, Mary, and by her maternal Grandfather, Morgan. The product of a teenage pregnancy, but of a Mother who loved her very much, and a Grandfather who doted on her, Janus is pretty well adjusted.


Pet/Familiar: Screech owl named Heindall
Friends: Heather McAllister (OC)
Crush: Is developing one for Colin Creevy, 5th year Gryffindor. Thinks he just as cute as the dickens.
Other: Janus is still just a bit of a tomboy, but is starting to slowly notice boys. During her sorting, the Hat had a tough time choosing between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor.


Mother: Mary Clampton
Father: Unknown. Janus's Mother will not talk about him, and her grandfather says "It's not my place to say, girl," when the subject comes up.
Siblings: One baby sister, Ruth
Grandparents: Grandfather Morgan Clampton, Grandmother Hellen - Died before Janus was born.
Other Relatives of Importance: Newborn baby sister named Ruth. (Technically, her half-sister, but Janus doesn't think of, and refuses to call her 'half'.)


Nationality: British
Birthplace: Thirsk, Sowerby, Yorkshire, England
Broom (if applicable): Very old Cleansweep, lots of missing twigs
Your characters view on Voldemort: Is frightened of everything she's heard of him.
Favourite subject and why: Potions, Janus has always enjoyed mixing things.
Favourite Professor and why: Doesn't really have one, she likes most of them, but is dubious about Snape, even though he teaches her favourite class.
Most disliked Professor and why: Umbridge
Favourite Professional/School Quidditch team: Her own house team.
Hobbies: Janus enjoys working with her hands, whether it be sewing or knitting or pounding something together, or mixing a good potion. She loves any excuse to use her wand, but isn't afraid of real non-magical work or getting her hands dirty. She also loves mythology, and architecture.
Likes: Pizza and Muggle colas, seeing Gryffindor absolutely pound Slytherin in Quidditch matches, custard tarts, and bright sunny days when she can get out of the castle.
