NAME: Lucy Weasley
DATE OF BIRTH: December 18, 2004
SEXUALITY: Heterosexual Homoromantic
WAND: Walnut, Phoenix Feather, 6 inches, surprisingly swingy

  • "Highly intelligent witches and wizards ought to be offered a walnut wand for trial first, because in nine cases out of ten, the two will find in each other their ideal mate. Walnut wands are often found in the hands of magical innovators and inventors; this is a handsome wood possessed of unusual versatility and adaptability. A note of caution, however: while some woods are difficult to dominate, and may resist the performance of spells that are foreign to their natures, the walnut wand will, once subjugated, perform any task its owner desires, provided that the user is of sufficient brilliance. This makes for a truly lethal weapon in the hands of a witch or wizard of no conscience, for the wand and the wizard may feed from each other in a particularly unhealthy manner." - Pottermore

  • "This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike. Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won." - Pottermore


  • "Crow’s are a bit like watchers of the night, quiet and observant, waiting for the precise moment to show themselves. Chances are they don’t want you to see them, then you want, as they are very good at hiding themselves. Equally, they can be incredibly charismatic when they need or want something, swooping in out of nowhere and shocking you with their mysterious presence. They have a fire to them that represents their need for freedom, and this mostly coincides with their somewhat greedy nature. They are inwardly emotional, and can turn off what they are feeling almost as a switch, if need be." -punkwarren

HOUSE: Slytherin
OCCUPATION: Employee at the Ministry of Magic, Department of Security
ALIGNMENT: True Neutral
Everybody loves Lucy - the young girl has been presented with that statement as an ultimate truth as long as she could think. She knew life would be easy for her - she expected it, really. And that made all the difference, in the end.
Ever since she was a child, Lucy, without even consciously contributing to it, had people constantly gushing over her beauty, and good behaviour - she was an adorable child, so much was true, with the sweet curiosity needed to wrap any adult around her little finger. Most people that were with her then could hardly help themselves at that stage - they spoilt her rotten.
From a very young age, the girl was constantly told how pretty she was, how cute, how adorable - and very quickly she learned that by emphasizing these traits, she could make other people much more inclined to do what she wanted. It wasn’t hard for her to figure out what others wanted to see in her so it became an easy task. She played up her sweetness, so they would pay more attention to her, and her naturally playful and gentle nature only helped with that. For nobody to notice what she was doing, nobody told her that it was wrong, either.
Apart from being deliberately cute, Lucy was also a very energetic child. Although she was never interested in most official sports, or anything all too practical, she could often be seen running around the grounds, or dragging her big sister around to play, and explore. For a long while, she was content like this. It was maybe her healthiest time when she was close to her parents, and her sister, and Lucy loves them all dearly.
But love - or whatever she has mistaken for it - can also be incredibly selfish.
Lucy had always craved attention, had been used to getting her fix of it on a daily basis, and when that dose started to become smaller with her increasing age, the young girl had to think of other strategies to get it. This combined with her natural leniency toward extroversion created the young woman she is today - somebody who will not stop before any means to get her reward from others- admiration, adoration, love.
Her parents were among the first sufferers of this, and really, it was quite easy for her to get the feeling that they liked her best, and to get them pay more attention to her than they did her sister. After all, she was about the only one to make herself be noticed - she was the loud one, the laughing one, the one who was always smiling, and playing sweet with them. She hardly had to work for this one.
Her sister, too, the girl loved so much, she wanted her entirely for herself, and the methods that she ended up using to ensure this, you’d almost have to call abusive. Yet, Lucy never wanted to be away from her, and she would cry and complain in early years, whenever they were forced to be separated. Spending time with her sister was often fun for both of them, but it wasn’t all sunshine and daisies. Lucy very consciously took her time to reinforce the notion in her sister that she was weak, that she could not be around other people on her own, and that she needed Lucy to look out and take care of her.
Irony - at that time, the young girl didn’t even know how to take care of herself properly.
For all her family being dazzled by her without question, Lucy assumed that school would be just as easy to manage for her. Apart from exaggerating her cuteness, or deliberately taking up tasks for her sister to take care of her, Lucy was still largely acting like herself back then. She was snarky, good-natured, mischievous, and always up for a good challenge. Never did she think that her natural personality would clash with anybody - what was there not to love, after all? And so, one could only imagine the culture shock that she found herself in, when the people at her school could only perceive her as as a spoilt, and conceited brat.
The first instinct that she acted upon was to take offense and just straight up demand that the others came and play with her- she needed the attention, after all. Understandably, this sense of entitlement backfired on her. Hard.
Dealing with bullies and exclusion was something that completely altered her worldview, and opened her eyes to the works of the real world. On the one part, she finally realize d that the universe did not naturally revolve around her, that she had to work to get the attention that she needed. On the other hand, she also got to realize more about other people, and how they weren’t all just like her family, nor was everyone as easily influenced by her looks.
Her family, in turn, never found out what she was dealing with at school. For once, she was too prideful to tell, and as the bullying was never physical, it was hard to catch it up from just observing it. In all regards, Lucy acted as though nothing had changed, although internally, she was becoming more scared and paranoid by the day. Sick and tired of being mistreated, and thrown around, she swore to herself that one day she would make them love her, and they would be sorry. 
It was at that time where she put even more effort into accommodating her behaviour toward other people in a big way to get what she wanted. At first, of course, her attempts were clumsy at best, and didn’t really bring her the attended effect. However, as she learned to pay attention to the general atmosphere, and observe the mannerism of individual people more analytically, she became more and more adept in knowing what people expected from her, and just how she had to appear  for them to like her. With years of practice, it became a second nature to her; it was almost always effective, and most certainly brought her rewards. Lucy has never saw anything wrong with manipulating others in such manner.
The only person back then with whom she still acted mostly like herself was her sister, and when that bond broke was broken, so was her sense of self. And it was only one mistake that had started it all; Lucy had been careless, her sister had caught up on one of her lies, and one her sister had realized the implications of that, no amount of pleading and offered comfort could repair their relationship, as her sister downright refused to forgive her. At first, the young girl assumed that she would come around eventually - and a part of her still has hope for that - but eventually she realized that Molly had made her decision - had abandoned her, and her heart broke.
Without her sister as a safe haven, Lucy was lost. The only person that she had laid trust upon was now gone, and she was completely isolated and alone, or at least, that’s how she perceived it. For weeks after the fall out, it was like all life had left the girl. She spent time, crying, muttering to herself, and withdrew herself from the world. She simply couldn’t comprehend why her sister would refuse to forgive her, and eventually started to interpret her sister’s actions as a betrayal of some sort, and a lack of trust.
After her breakdown made her feel even more vulnerable, fear started to grow in her - fear of becoming weak like her sister, fear of getting close to someone, fear that one day, someone would betray her like this again. This fear only added to her paranoia, that lays underneath her mask, and is subtly taking over her thoughts. She doesn’t trust anybody anymore, whereas her tactics of deceit were improving drastically, because they were her sole purpose these days. Part coping method, part personal gain, and just the only way she knows how to do things, Lucy feels far more comfortable lying than she does telling the truth.
