Long blonde hair falls past this girl's shoulders, and her height is not diminutive nor gargantuan, for Lillah stands at roughly five feet four inches tall and weighs at a petite one hundred five pounds. Lillah also prefers for her corsets and bodices to be laced tighter than normal, desiring a smaller waist than the other women her age. She keeps her eyebrows tame, shaping them herself. Her lips are also a naturally rosy pink. Her eyes are a dull blue color, brightening with a high note, happiness, or excitement, while darkening with fear, anger, and sadness.
Two months after Dietrich Falkenrath and Klara Ritter had married, the announcement of a child was sent to the families. Several months later, little Lillah was born in what is later called Germany, her father's birthplace. She was a good child, rarely crying and sleeping most of the night. As her first fourteen months approached, her younger brother, Galen Connor, was born. The two grew up together and were very close, using each other as secret keepers and often spoke in a made-up language to confuse their parents. As Lillah turned three, and Galen turned two, the third and youngest Falkenrath, Nikolas Ritter, was born.
When Lillah was four years old, her father had been offered a job in England which he took so Klara, who had become withdrawn and depressed, could spend time with her family. They moved in 1863 to a foreign place with a different language and a different social state. "Germany" was still was all she knew. As she aged, she knew that her brother, her secret keeper, could no longer be the person she told her secrets to; at age eight she was given a diary and she wrote in it every day. Lillah's secrets she told her brother were poured into the little book, including the first time she had experienced her magical abilities.
When Lillah was eleven, in 1871, her Hogwarts acceptance letter had arrived, and her parents were thrilled. Her father took her to the German wandmaker that had fashioned his wand for his schooling at Durmstrang Institute. They returned to England and she was also given a Tengmalm's (Boreal) Owl to take to Hogwarts. She named her owl Aegolius, which is the genus for the owl. At the sorting ceremony, she was sorted into Ravenclaw, the house of wit, wisdom, and cleverness.
From the start, Lillah tried her hardest to do well and tried to be on all of her teachers good sides, and her fear of failure become a part of her very being. She was always in the library, becoming friends with the books, and learned about harder spells and spells that most students only learned after school, or in private tutoring sessions with their professors. Before the OWLs, she read up on Patronuses and started studying about them, and practiced during lunch due to her full schedule. When it finally came down to OWLs, Lillah received almost all Outstanding and Exceeds Expectations except for History of Magic, Divination, and Herbology where she gained 'Acceptables.'
She worked harder trying to meet with the professors after class to schedule practice sessions on various time periods, readings, and plants. In her seventh year her NEWTs were higher than her OWLs and she auditioned for the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts (WADA). Enthralled by her soprano voice, WADA accepted her and at WADA Lillah studied preforming arts. She attended WADA for four years, graduating in 1881 and took up a job in Hogsmeade as a singer/actress for an opera. She quickly became its star and has continued living there to this day.
Lillah, while in school, was in six words: studious, hardworking, modest, shy, sneaky, and insecure. Lillah was hardworking and determined because of her devotion to preforming to her highest standard and being the best she can be. Lillah, being a woman of the middle class, held herself to a standard unique in ways of confining her insecurity with a tight bodice that also covered herself completely. Lillah was not a flirtatious girl, due to insecurities and her father's reluctance to even seek a suitor for a girl approaching her seventh year. Lillah was sneaky in the sense where she had slipped away from her parents and many classmates to practice charms and to send letters to brief lovers. And finally, Lillah was insecure about her body, with having larger breasts and fuller lips than many girls her age, Lillah felt out of place, and it partially drove her to be the studious mind she was. But that was Lillah in school.
Since graduating Hogwarts and attending WADA, Lillah has new self-confidence and has committed herself to being the very best and looks down upon those who do not agree that she has the best voice in all of Hogsmeade if not all of Scotland. She can become jealous in a matter of moments and can be very demanding in roles. Lillah has grown to be snobbish and over the top. She enjoys being pampered and being complimented for everything and for nothing.
