Vivian is tall at 5 feet and seven inches, she is also naturally emaciated looking with a certain gauntness to her and dark eyes. She is fairly pretty depending on the angle she is caught at but her temperament often ruins any true appreciation of her appearance. She is right handed and uses said had for both writing and magic (when she's stable enough to do so). Her hair is dark as her eyes are and she has a pale almost sickly complexion.
Born the illegitimate daughter of a Duchess, Vivian was always an ill-tempered child. Her father found out shortly after Vivian's conception that his wife had grown intimately close to her own brother and this destroyed their marriage. From as early on as she can remember, she was treated differently than her other siblings. Her mother shunned her and her father seemed in constant disgust with her, no matter her behavior be it good or bad. Early on, she discovered she had an ability that the rest of her family didn't have; when she had a fit of rage, glass would shatter and the candles would burn ferociously, when she was miserable she would make flowers wilt and it wasn't long before her family noticed. She was kept away from other children and outwardly treated as though she did not exist in the event that they decided to commit her, they wanted minimal scandal and so letting people assume she had passed quietly at some point in her infancy they achieved this.
Young Vivian would be kept away from guests in the future and sequestered in the nursery with her nurse. Often a clergyman would be brought in to try and absolve Vivian of her 'innate desire to be evil' by making her take confession and at the insistence of her father, be examined for signs of possession. An exorcism was once attempted but to little avail other provoking a volatile nine year old.
At the age of eleven, she was finally 'diagnosed' as a witch and with that, she was sent off to Hogwarts come September and only allowed back during summer. She was sorted into Ravenclaw for having something of a sharp mind on her despite it lacking severely in the stability department. Mean-spirited and poorly adapted to socializing, she had little to no friends and enjoyed her schooling very little. She knew her social graces but she could not take to the change in surroundings easily. Her temper remained relatively stable for lack of provocation but she was cold and distant.
By her fifth year, she had improved greatly and come out of her shell to an extent. She had a few friends and was beginning to settle in and actually be happy. When she would return home that summer, it would be to find out that her mother had been sent off to an asylum. Vivian was never told that it was due to the fact that she had taken up her relationship with her brother once again and managed to bear a child, despite being close to 50. The child had been born abnormal and died, shortly after which, Catherine was placed in an asylum by her husband. All Vivian was told, was that her mother had delivered a child too weak to survive and been driven insane by her grief. Vivian was not disturbed so much by the removal of her mother but more by the threat of being committed.
At the end of her seventh year and graduation from Hogwarts, she would appear to be a polished young lady, far removed from the craziness of her childhood. Vivian was soon engaged to Mr. Turner who, though was below her status, she accepted at her father's encouragement. He wanted rid of his wife's bastard and as soon as possible.
Her marriage was not wholly unhappy and actually started off as a reasonably amicable union. Despite the descension in class, Vivian endured it better than one might have expected. She fell pregnant very quickly in their marriage and as the weeks passed, Vivian began to warm to the idea of motherhood, though she herself knew very little of maternal warmth. Sadly, the pregnancy ended in a miscarriage which greatly distressed her. Several more miscarriages would follow, each unhinging Vivian a little more until finally in 1870, she managed to produce a son and heir. A year or so later, however, Vivian discovered an infidelity on the part of her husband with a servant and was horrified to discover that the woman had too borne him a child, one with the same name. Vivian tried vehemently to have her fired and out of the house but is swayed by her husband to tolerate her longer.
At the age of five, her son proves his magical ability and any thoughts of his being a squib are dismissed, though Vivian will always deny doubting them in the first place. Two years later, the family uproot and move to Hogsmeade. Vivian expects Polly and her bastard to remain behind but is infuriated to find out otherwise.
When both boys received their Hogwarts letters, Vivian was furious to find out that Polly's son would be financially supported through school by Woodrow and has been in the foulest of tempers since.
In the years since Benjamin's birth and her husband's betrayal, she has succumbed to the madness she exhibited as a child. Her control over her magic is highly unstable and her temper violent and often accompanied by extreme aggression. She has suffered a few more miscarriages since Benjamin and currently has extra servants to care for her and control her when she gets out of hand.
Personality: Insane. Let's leave it at that, shall we?
