Hair colour and style: Is cut short but she often uses extensions, is colored black but can fade to, or somewhere between that and a light brown depending on how she feels like charming it.
Eye colour: Blue
Height: 5'5"
Body type: Small frame, slightly curvy, palish skin
Dress sense: Lots of sweaters, casual dresses, and t-shirts/jeans. Her style really kinda ranges depending on her mood, and can fluctuate from really girl, lots of pastels, etc. to sorta goth, all black, etc. to anywhere between. She doesn’t really have a style, but usually sticks to pretty casual clothing, sometimes wearing dresses, unless she’s going somewhere fancier.

Scars: Cutting scars on her upper thighs, stomach, and on the inside of her arms & wrists

Likes:
  - Journaling
  - Drawing
  - Painting her nails
  - Pinterest
  - Writing poems
  - Music: Mostly pop? Alternative rock?
  - Reading
  - Video games
  - Jewelry: Mainly earrings, ear cuffs, belly button rings, necklaces, and the occasional ring. The only brackets she wears are friendship bracelets from camp which she never takes off.
  - Forest animals: Hedgehogs, foxes, rabbits, wolfs, snakes, etc.
  - Water animals: Seahorse, dolphins, whales, sharks, etc.
  - Making jewelry
  - Children
  - Coffee
  - Quidditch
  - Risk
  - Leather or jean jackets and sweatshirts: They hide most of the scars on her arms and make her feel safe. She almost always wear a jack or sweatshirt over whatever she’s wearing.

Dislikes:
 - Goody-two-shoes: Harper can't stand people who can't take a little risk, or are afraid to break the rules. While she doesn't actively go around breaking rules, it's plenty annoying to her when people have a problem with something that maybe, might, be slightly against a rule.
  - Bullies: Harper can't stand people who make others feel less about themselves.
 - Horror movies: She can hardly get through a scary movie without freaking out and leaving the room/theatre, especially if she’s alone.
 - Being weak: Harper is a very feeling based person, but despite that, she hates being looked at as “weak”.
 - Blood supremacists, or people who think they’re better than halfbloods because they’re full bloods.

Strengths:
   - She’s pretty talented at poetry, and depending on her level of inspiration, she can sit down and write out a whole poem.
  - Harper is amazing w/ children
  - She’s really good at drawing
  - She’s really good at making jewelry, and even sells it.
  - She’s quite skilled at making coffee, if she says so herself.
  -  She’s a bit above average in flying, and loves quidditch.
  - She knows French

Weaknesses:
 - Struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts
  - Struggles w/ anxiety and has occasional panic attacks, though they’re rare
  - Low self confidence
  - She’s very emotion driven, and often reacts before thinking.

Positive traits:
  - Emotions: She is very in tune with her emotions… most of the time. She either knows exactly how she’s feeling, or completely and utterly confused.
  - Creative
  - Stubborn
  - Independent
  - Caring
  - Friendly
  - Trusting: But only the first time. After being betrayed once, she’s slow to trust again.
  - Good humor
  - Quirky

Negative traits:
  - Holds a grudge
  - Sarcastic
  - Cocky
  - Impulsive

Habits and nervous ticks:
  - Drawing on her hands or wrists
  - Doodling on paper
  - Biting her lip
  - Fiddling with whatever necklace she’s wearing.


When Harper was small, she was raised by loving, incredible parents. As she grew, her parents grew distant with each other, and the constant fights and arguing, and bickering drove her crazy, though she knew her parents still loved her. As she grew older, her dad picked up more shifts at work, until he was hardly home, and her mom was constantly having what she liked to call “back-up dads” over. Harper stated to feel like she was in the way, and like she was the burden of the household.

In school, the kids always bullied her and picked on her for being the quirky one, or the distant one, and the first day she marked herself, she expected someone to notice, ask how they could help, but she was met with silence all around. It helped for a short time, though, so she kept doing it. Eventually, her third year at Hogwarts, a teacher caught sight of them, and questioned her about them, before recommending her a London counselor.

The counselor helped her through a lot of what she diagnosed as “depression” and “anxiety”, where Harper had really thought there was something wrong with her. She started journaling, and drawing, and writing, and it helps a lot now. She always has her bad days, and hasn’t stopped cutting, but it’s less frequent, and she knows how to care for herself enough that she at least tends to the wounds after.

The following years at Hogwarts were some of the best of her life, even after her parents got divorced, as she knew that it would be ok. There was nothing wrong with her, and she wasn't just a weirdo. After starting to no longer see herself as an outcast, she stopped being treated like an outcast. She started approaching people and making friends, rather than shying away and being on her own all the time. She got on anti-depressants, and medicine to help with her anxiety, and her life seemed to get a million times better.

The meeting

Iris Britaine at the age of 18 and Shawn Genesis, the age of 21 met on a stormy night in paris. It was cold and raining, and Iris ducked under a doorway to get out of the downpour, running straight into Shawn. He, seeing her soaked, invited her into this apartment, and she obliged, not wanting to catch a cold in the rain. He lived there, she was there on one of her first trips out of England alone. They got along nicely, exchanging phone numbers before Iris went home.

They kept in touch for about a year, talking and flirting, and building a relationship over the phone and over text. One day Shawn showed up at her door, surprising her with the news that he had found a suitable job in London, and would be moving there. They were engaged to be married not long after that.

The child

A year after they were married, Iris became pregnant with a baby girl. The couple was thrilled, and raised it together as well as any good, loving parent could. But the child drove a wedge between them. As it turned out, Shawn was horrible with children, and he couldn’t help but dislike their child, though he loved her so.

As the child grew, the couple fought, growing apart more and more until the only thing really keeping them together was Harper, even though she grew closer to her dad the older she got. It of course didn't help that she only seemed to act up for him, probably because he didn't know how to treat a child. Her first act of magic was when she was 4, and sent her toys flying at her dad's face. Luckily, he caught the toys and was able to not get injured, but it only further proved the point that he couldn't deal with magical children.

The divorce

When Harper was 16 her parents divorced. Her dad moved back to Paris, where he always truly belonged, for all his family was there, and that was where he grew up, and her mom stayed in London. She mostly spends her school years w/ her mom, and well as holiday weekends, and the summer break with her dad. Iris and Shawn were still friendly with each other, but where there used to be a great romance, there was now nothing.

Hi Kitty,

Welcome back to HaB, it's great to have you back!

The admins have reviewed your application, and we have the following points for you to review:

1. You have denoted Harper to be seventeen, but this does not correspond to her birthday.

Also, if she is seventeen, she will be a sixth year, not a fifth year.

2. Should the tattoo say survivor or surv;vor -- just wanted to check!

3. You have denoted Harper liking the girl scouts -- this isn't a big thing in the UK, and you mentioned she goes to the US. Where did this come from? How did she get in to American camps (there is no note of American ties)?

4. The following years at Hogwarts were some of the best of her life, even after her parents got divorced, as she knew that it would be ok.

Please can you elaborate on this point with what made it the best years of her life.

5. First magical feat?

6. Emotions: She is very intone with her emotions… most of the time. She either knows exactly how she’s feeling, or completely and utterly confused.

We think you mean "in tune"?

7. You've noted Hogwarts as having a counsellor. This is a hugely American idea, and to the admin's understanding there isn't a school counsellor employed at Hogwarts. We would, therefore, suggest changing this to a counsellor outside of school, or to the school healer.

Once you've adjusted these points we will review once more and hopefully get you sorted!

Ok! I fixed all of your points. I went ahead and took out the camp thing all together, and yes I did mean to do surv;vor, thanks for checking!
