Background

Jean-Jacques and Arabelle Fontaine never expected anything less from their genius daughter. She was an average English and Maths student, but she had read about the various discoveries of Curie, Fleming, Mendel and Pasteur at the age of eight. By the time she was ten, she had taught herself how to identify the chemical properties of certain medicines, and if she had the chance to meet a scientist from Cambridge she would have impressed them with her knowledge of A-level Chemistry and Biology. She became a bullied student due to her obsession with scientific inquiry, but her parents and Uncle Gaspard remained supportive of her interests.

The bullying made Gabby quite distrustful and aloof, and the high society pretensions of Gabby's bullies made her hate those who considered themselves to be elite. She began to look for friends in other places (such as in her after-school fencing classes), but she never felt as if she truly had close friends. While this proved beneficial for her studies, it would also eventually cause her to become neglectful of her studies in Hogwarts. By the time she was 11, she had already started to feel burnt out, and her parents' divorce did not help. She dealt with her frustrations by being cold and aloof.

In Hogwarts, the genius firstborn child of the Fontaines became the terrible student who never did her homework. Gabby still loves to read and learn, but she is also slowly losing faith in the importance of wisdom.

Family

Mother: Arabella Uppington Fontaine / 42 / Living / Muggle
Father: Jean-Jacques Fontaine / 47 / Living / Muggle
Siblings: Clementine Fontaine / 9 / Living / Muggle


Family Background

Arabella Uppington and Jean-Jacques Fontaine's marriage was quite the scandal for the Uppington family. The Uppingtons were of titled nobility whereas the Fontaines were French immigrants who had a bakery in London. Arabella Uppington, who until the marriage was seen as the most responsible daughter, was cut off from the family, and Jean-Jacques' family never took a liking to Arabella due to their dislike of her 'pretentious' elite background. These conflicts between Arabella and the Fontaines made for a difficult marriage and family life, but Arabella stayed for the sake of the children. They eventually divorced when Gabrielle went off to Hogwarts. Clementine lives with Arabella, and Gabrielle lives with Jean-Jacques during the summer.
