Name: Leandra Knight, Lea for short
Preferred House: Hufflepuff
Year you would like to be: seventh
How did you find us?
Lea is a great Quidditch player. Her best position is seeker, followed by chaser. Since she was little, her older brother, in desperate need of someone to practice with, taught her the basics of the game. She picked up on it after falling off her broom a few times, and when she recieved her acceptance letter to Hogwarts, her gift was a broomstick. (Though for the first year it had to stay at home)
Also, Lea is loyal to her friends, sometimes to a fault. She's known to throw a punch at someone if they dare hurt one of her friends, and as a result of this, she sometimes spends a bit too much time in the Hospital Wing, and is on a first name basis with Madam Pomfry. However, she never regrets what she has done, and takes her detention without too much grumbling.
Lea is smart, though definately not Ravenclaw smart, for reasons explained later on. She exells at Potions, finding joy in the fact that together, ingridents can make something incredable amazing and different. As a result of this, she also enjoys cooking, though at Hogwarts there isn't much of a need for it.
Lea is minorly dyslexic, and as a result she hates to read. However, due to her pride, she usually refuses to suck it up and ask someone near by what something says. This has often resulted in an explosion in the potions dungeon.
Also, Lea has a hard time concentrating on class work, and due to this, she procrastinates rather often, and can often be found in the library, trying to finish a paper.
Potions, definately potions.
Quidditch is her main hobby, and spends much time outside on the Quidditch pitch practicing, sometimes even when it's raining. Also, she enjoys cooking, and sometimes goes down to the kitchens to watch the House Elves and see what exactly it is that they do to make their food so wonderous.
Thirteen inches long, unicorn hair.
Quidditch, Quidditch, and Quidditch. In the mornings, she also enjoys running, and likes to do a few laps around the lake to keep in shape. Potions, which is her favorite class as I've said before, is another things she loves. Lea also enjoys dancing, and from the age of four to eleven, she took jazz and ballet.
Herbology, she doesn't see how it has to do with anything magical. They're just dumb plants that muggles don't notice. Big deal. Lea hates reading and writing.
It would be more like a vision, in which she would be reaching for the snitch before falling off her broom, the other team winning. Yeah, she's a bit passionate about Quidditch.
Leandra is her own person. She's outgoing and quirky, without out a care of what people think about her. She's loyal and a good friend, and can keep a secret. She loves to laugh, but never at the expense of another unless it is good natured. She would make a good leader, but prefers to be a follower.
1 Word to describe yourself: quirky
Lea's of average height, and of what looks like a frail build, but don't let that fool you. Her skin is somewhat tan from all the time she spends out in the sun. Her hair used to be a light brown, but as a result of all the time she spends outside, it's started to look slightly blonde. It falls halfway down her back, and she usually wears it in a low ponytail. Her eyes a bit larger than she would like, and dark green with a few flecks of gold and brown mixed in.
Picture: none, sorry.
Blood Status: mixed
Mother: Diana Knight
Father: George Knight
Older Brother: Alex Knight
Pets: a calico cat whom she calls Cally (she's not exactly the most imaginative person out there)
Any prior schooling? she went to a muggle school through fifth grade so that she would have a basic education.
Life before Hogwarts: She grew up rather happily with her mom, dad, and older brother who all went to Hogwarts, and was always anxiously awaiting her letter.
