Likes: (3 minimum)

-Good grades – For the most part, she wants to have good grades. However, there are some subjects which she doesn't care about.

Dislikes: (3 minimum)

Jade grew up in a moderately wealthy household as an only child just outside Liverpool. She had a relatively isolated childhood there, although many of the neighbours had children her age. To make up for that, her father bought her everything she wished for and she was always a content child. However, when she was out with her parents and met other people, she would always brag about all the things she had and only talk about herself. In fact, she would not even let others talk about themselves and get really annoyed if they did, to the point that she would tell those people, no matter how old, to 'shut up' or possibly bully them when they were younger. Her parents did not seem to mind this behaviour too much (aside from punishing her whenever she physically hurt another child) as it showed their child had a very dominant personality. Just to be sure, though, her parents did teach her to be respectful at least to her professors, once she gets into school.

Her worst memory comes from the time when her father left his wand unattended and it fell into Jade's hands. That must have been when she was eight years old. She really wanted to test spells she heard her parents use, so she went outside to do so. She memorized some spells from hearing them, or so she thought. But none of the spells seemed to work. Just then, when she was about to give up, she tried one last spell she heard her parents say whenever they lighted the fireplace: 'Incendio'. She must have hit something highly flammable, because within mere minutes a neighbour family's house stood in flames. Of course, she quickly ran back inside her family's house, put the wand back where she found it and tried to pretend nothing had happened. However, her mother must have seen her, or somehow noticed her daughter had a wand in her hands, because after the fire was taken care of by the local fire brigade she immediately came into Jade's room. She looked furious, to say the least. Jade will never forget the angry look in her mother's eyes. Seeing her mother like this again, is her greatest fear. After this experience, she took it to heart to learn spells perfectly before she would ever use them.

In the time between this event and her invitation to Hogwarts, she focused on learning as much as possible from her parents, so she would have an advantage over other students. This lead to her being even more arrogant. However, her mother seemed to only encourage this behaviour. And so, Jade finally got into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and she is ready to learn and possibly cause some chaos, if it fits her.


Mother:
   Name: Olivia Blackwood
   Age: 45
   Living or Deceased: Living
   Blood type or Species: Pureblood
   Occupation: Auror

Father:
   Name: Charles Blackwood
   Age: 47
   Living or Deceased: Living
   Blood type or Species: Pureblood
   Occupation: Head of a broom-making company

Pets:
   Name: Jinx
   Age: 4
   Living or Deceased: Living
   Blood type or Species: Black cat


Charles was born into a large family in London. Despite it being a pureblood family, they did not have particularly much wealth to their name and they also did not care much about the continuation of the pureblood line. He attended Hogwarts as a member of house Ravenclaw. He was a decent Quidditch player during his school years and decided to get into the broom-making business after graduation, creating the Blackwood Broom Company and its product: The Speedstar. This company turned out to be quite successful, as the Speedstar seemed to have good qualities for long and hard Quidditch matches. This amassed him and his family a small fortune. He is always nice to Jade and would help her with anything.

Olivia comes from a line of Aurors. She, too, graduated from Hogwarts and was a member of house Slytherin during her time there. After getting good N.E.W.T scores in all her subjects she eventually became an Auror. Because she was an only child and her father would not have any other heir who could become an Auror, it was decided Olivia should take that role. This is something she also expects from her daughter. This is why she always expects her daughter to be good in school and she gets very strict if Jade messes up.

Charles and Olivia met during their time in Hogwarts and fell in love, even though they were two years apart. They married after both of their graduations and decided to have a child once the broom-making business was a success. They decided to settle down in a Muggle neighbourhood, so their child would have a better understanding of the Muggle world and possibly grow up without any prejudice against them (which did not work).

Hi Jade,

Welcome to HaB! We're super excited to have you here, and all of us on the site look forward to posting with you soon!

The Admins have looked over your profile, and we have noted a few areas that we would like to ask you to look over before we accept the profile:

1. Herbology isn't about herbs, it's about magical plants. We apologise, but the Admins have something of a fondness for this subject xD

2. You have noted that the family is the Head of a 'broom-making' company, but haven't specified which one. You have noted Charles made his own broom business, so it would be cool if a new line came out (perhaps one that could eventually rival Nimbus or Firebolts?)

3. Please could you elaborate on why Jade's mother is an Auror? You have opted to play a Pureblood family, who wouldn't usually let women work. Is this because you've opted for a more modern family who don't think that a woman's place is at home? Or was Olivia rebelling? More information here would be great -- though, we will point out, a female Pureblood having a job is not bad, just something that requires a little more explanation.

4. Did Charles upset his father upon deciding to go in to the Quidditch business? Most Purebloods normally have a stash of money -- unless you're going for Weasley-esque Purebloods?

5. You have noted that the family lives in a predominantly Muggle area -- there is little mention of magic and the solution to a magical fire was to call the fire brigade. Please can you explain why the family chose to do this?

Once you have amended these few areas, we will look over the profile once more before (hopefully!) accepting you to the site!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the Admins!
