Year you would like to be: I'd like to be in my seventh year.
How did you find us? Actually, I was looking through RP forums and I came across this one multiple times.
Strengths: Tegan doesn't have many magical strengths. She is a weak witch with a strong personality. She does well on written tests, but her magic isn't as strong as she would hope. Tegan can handle a broom fairly well, but she doesn't fancy quidditch as much as her father, never did. Academically, Tegan is a fine student. She can often be found with her nose in a dusty old book or on a broom just for the breeze.
Weaknesses: Tegan struggles when it comes to performing magic. Even simple spells sometimes fall apart. At times, she has trouble levitating even small objects. Now that she has come of age she plans on performing magic as much as possible in hope that paracticing will strengthen her powers. Tegan's other weakness is somewhat shameful, at least to her it is. Her heart is one place anyone could strike and bring her down. She cares too much. She has a fragile heart that has been broken one too many times.
Favorite Class: Tegan formed a liking to Divination her third year at Hogwarts. Although she wasn't exactly the best or most capable in her class, she was always credited for her attempts and 'almosts'. She obeyed and followed rules very well in the classroom. She could reiterate directions and steps in the snap of her fingers, but could never read a poof of smoke or the remains of tea leaves in a cup. She once knew it was going to rain through a crystal ball, but that's probably the most she's ever done.Tegan liked this class because she wasn't alone in it. There were many others who were unable to perform the simplest of assignments. Some even less capable than she.
Hobbies/Activities: Other than reading and flying, Tegan enjoys doing absolutely nothing. She loves sitting around and staring at things. She has quite the imagination actually. She once examined a tree for over an hour just because she heard a rumor that elves lived in them. She was determined to see if it was true and if so, why they weren't serving in someone's house.
Boys were never a number one priority in Tegan's life, but they always seemed to find a way in. She disliked the whole idea of teenage love and drama. It's absolutely pointless. She tried to avoid it most of her teenaged years. She was not very successful in her goal to never hurt someone and never let anyone hurt her. Her social life was never limited. She enjoyed 'hanging out' with friends, of course friends approved by her parents. She was allowed to go out as much as she wished, as long as they were worthy -purebloods.
Tegan enjoys many other activities both the muggle way and through magic such as; swimming, cooking, gardening, dancing, ocassional partying, fishing -she adored salmon fishing in Alaska.
Wand: Elm Wood and Vampire Fang, 11"
Likes: Tegan Likes her friends that stay loyal, taking risks, eating fruit, and playing games and staying active for fun, not competition -unless friendly competition.
Dislikes: Tegan dislikes several meats that she believes is unedible. She hates being told what to do more than once. If she wants to do what she's told, she'll do it the first time.
Boggart: Tegan's boggart is a muggle teacher. She had to cross paths with many in her old school. She swears they're from another planet.
Patronus: Tegan's patronus is a fox. Although she has only successfully produced it once.
Personality: Tegan's personality is complex. She's unsure about where she stands in the wizarding society. Tegan is a kind person in general. At times she could be seen criticizing another student, but she wouldn't inflict physical pain on anyone unless they asked for it. Tegan punched one of her 'friends' her fourth year. Shortly after realizing what she had done, she apologized and swore not to consume foreign mushrooms ever again. She's not fond of torturing anyone. She never understood why people would use any unforgiveable curses on other people nor could she see herself doing it. Tegan is very approachable. She has a warm yet mysterious personality.
1 Word to describe yourself: inquisitive
Physical Description: Tegan is a average sized girl. She was born with olive skin, probably inheritted from her father's side. She has dark hair that she usually wears down and lets it fall along her back. She likes to let her hair swipe along her forehead. (She thinks her forehead is a little too big). Tegan has full lips that don't come very close to her ears when she smiles. She has sharp blue eyes that she's very proud to call hers.
Blood Status: Tegan's blood is pure, although when she traced her ancentry she found that her grandmother on her mother's side was a half blood.
Residence: Tegan was born in Chavez, Portugal which is her father's home town. Tegan then moved to Edinburgh when she was three. She's lived in Scotland ever since.
Family: Tegan is an only child. She lives with both of her parents in Scotland. Her father, originally from Portugal moved to Edinburgh for work. He works for the ministry there in the capital. Her mother is French and often has difficulty understanding anyone. Most of her friends are children of her parents' friends. She has little family. She considers her parent's close friends family.
Pets: Tegan was never allowed pets in the manor. She had one dog that she snuck in when she was five.
Any prior schooling? Tegan went to a muggle school before she attended Hogwarts. Her father absolutely hated the idea, but her mother insisted she went to a normal school so she would be aware of what the world was like, not just the wizarding world. After all, Tegan's grandmother was a half blood.
Life before Hogwarts: Tegan was a typical child. Her parents would schedule play dates as a toddler where Tegan could play with other young witches and wizards, taking a break from the muggles she met at school. Her parents would have a laugh over a glass of firewhiskey with the other parents.
