Be a unicorn in a field of horses
THE BASICS:
NAME:April Jane Ward
NAME MEANING:
🌟 April: From the name of the month, probably originally derived from Latin aperire "to open", referring to the opening of flowers.
🌟 Jane: Medieval English form of Jehanne, an Old French feminine form of Iohannes.
🌟 Ward: Derived from Old English weard meaning "guard, guardian".
HOMETOWN:Dunedin, New Zealand
NICKNAME/ALIAS:N/A
AGE:13
BIRTHDAY:15 April 2032

NATIONALITY:Citizen of New Zealand
BLOOD STATUS:Half Blood
SEXUALITY:Unknown
RELATIONSHIP STATUS:Single
ZODIAC SIGN:Aries. As an Aries born on April 15th, your personality is defined by a fun-loving attitude, optimism and generosity. While there are many people who take a negative look towards life, you truly enjoy living and experiencing new things. You are always upbeat, which can be credited to your innate optimism. While your friends and family always marvel at your positivity, it may be your generous nature that they appreciate the most. One would be hard pressed to find a situation where you turned away a friend in need.
ELEMENT:Fire. Your sign's elemental pair is fire and of all the zodiac signs, only the Aries has a cardinal connection to the element. Your special relationship with fire gives your personality the special spark of a leader and self-starter. When paired with the burning passion of fire's influence, your potential as a leader knows no bounds. As you embrace fire's positive qualities you will continue on a path to success, but be sure to avoid the impatience and impulsiveness that plagues all fire zodiac signs.
PLANET: Mars. The planetary ruler of the Aries is Mars, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a generous helping of Jupiter's planetary power. While the power of Mars can be given credit for your assertiveness and vigor, it is the influence of Jupiter that links to your innate optimism, and generosity. More so than the other Aries Decans, your planetary influence makes you a truth-seeker and adventurer. You have a natural curiosity and subsequently, you may find yourself on a lifelong journey to understanding and knowledge. Your interests in the theoretical can make you a dreamer at times, but luckily your drive for success keeps you mostly grounded in your efforts. While your optimism is one of your greatest strengths, it can become detrimental if you fail to see the realistic dangers of your decisions.

EDUCATION: Hogwarts New Zealand
HOGWARTS HOUSE:Hufflepuff
HOGWARTS YEAR: Second Year
OCCUPATION:Student
FAVORITE CLASS: Potions
LEAST FAVORITE CLASS: Astronomy
CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES: -
WAND: Knotted 14 1/2 Inch Whippy Dogwood Wand with Meteorite Dust Core
🌟 Wood: Dogwood wands are mischievous, and like the same in those who wield them. They refuse to perform non-verbal magic (and are often quite loud), and look for fun and excitement. However, in the right hands a wand with this wood should not be underestimated.
🌟 Core: This wand core works well for people who adapt easily to their surroundings while still maintaining their own personalities. Meteorite dust seems to produce wands that are useful in Divination work.

APPEARANCE:
PLAY BY:Poppy Okotcha
HAIR:Short and tightly curled.
EYES:Dark brown.
BUILD:Thin and tall for her age.
STYLE:April has a very colorful style. She wears anything that looks funny or outrageous as long as it draws attention to her. She loves to wear a lot of different jewelry at once too, not really caring about how well it fits.
OTHER DISTINGUISHING FEATURES:April has very expressive eyes and a wide smile, her emotions are always easy to read on her face.


A LITTLE DEEPER:
PERSONALITY:April is very outgoing and energetic, she loves to be the center of attention and will try to achieve that by being funny and nice. Her personality is very friendly and she can easily get along with many people, though she doesn't tend to form strong connections too easily. April tends to get annoyed when other people are more successful than her at the things she loves, and will push herself harder to beat them. This competitive streak is very subtle, as she wouldn't let the other person know it bothers her. Because of this, she often seems more carefree than she really is, which she likes. She was very active on social media and dreaded giving it up for Hogwarts, but was still very excited to learn magic.

Posted ImageENFP - "THE CAMPAIGNER"
The Campaigner personality is a true free spirit. They are often the life of the party, but unlike types in the Explorer Role group, Campaigners are less interested in the sheer excitement and pleasure of the moment than they are in enjoying the social and emotional connections they make with others. Charming, independent, energetic and compassionate, the 7% of the population that they comprise can certainly be felt in any crowd.

ENFP STRENGTHS:
Curious 🌟 Observant 🌟 Energetic and Enthusiastic 🌟 Excellent Communicators 🌟Know How to Relax 🌟 Very Popular and Friendly

ENFP WEAKNESSES:
Poor Practical Skills 🌟 Find it Difficult to Focus 🌟 Overthink Things 🌟 Get Stressed Easily 🌟 Highly Emotional 🌟 Independent to a Fault
Posted Image


HISTORY: April's parents divorced when she was young. Being a child of both a wizard and a muggle, April grew up in a mixture of both worlds. Her mother is a successful business woman in the muggle world and is often away, though they try to schedule visits as often as possible. April lives with her father Matt, who she is very close to. Matt spoils April as much as he can and almost never tells her no. April has been taking ballet classes from a young age which she enjoys a lot. Matt often dropped her off at the dance school, where he met met another single father, Kyle Alcott. He is the father of October, a girl in April's ballet class. Matt and Kyle hit it off and started dating and eventually introduced the idea of their relationship to their daughters. The two families now often hang out together, and April is very excited about it. She can tell how happy Kyle makes Matt, and quietly hopes they will get married
LIKES:Dancing, Music, Colorful things, Acting, Singing, Attention, Social Media
DISLIKES:Reading, Rain, Bullies, Other people stealing the spotlight
GOALS:April's goal is to be famous, she doesn't yet have specifics in mind about how she wants to achieve that.
FEARS:Snakes, The dark, Being disliked
STRENGTHS:April is very positive and energetic, she sees things in a positive light. She's not afraid to talk to other people or to speak in front of a crowd and she is very friendly.
WEAKNESSES:April is a bit flighty, she's not the most reliable friend. She also can easily get on people's nerves because her need for attention causes her to constantly try to be the funniest in the room.
MIRROR OF ERISED: Herself on a stage in front of a roaring crowd.
BOGGART: A giant snake.
PATRONUS:Unknown.
AMORTENTIA:Lemons, Popcorn, Cake.

Roleplays Before First Year
Family Reunion With Kyle Alcott, October Alcott and Matt Ward New Zealand
Excitement and DisappointmentWith Adelia KolterNew Zealand

First Year

Posted Image
"My first year was so much fun! I'm happy to be part of the magical world for real now, even if I have to miss my favorite sites. I love love LOVE that my dad is at school too, it's so much fun to drink tea with him in his office! I loved most of my classes, though I did have to sit still a lot for them. I really hope next year will be as great as this one!"

April was very eager to start her time at Hogwarts, having grown up with stories from her father about the school. She was even more excited to find out her father would actually be going with her as the new History of Magic professor for the older years. His boyfriend Kyle turned out to also be a wizard, so April was at school with his daughter (and her sort-of-maybe-someday sister) October. The two didn't spend a lot of the year together, as April quickly made friends in her new house. She developed a love for Quidditch by watching it with her friend Norton, and wants to try out for the team in her second year.

Second Year

"My second year was even more fun than the first! I made so many friends and became alternate seeker on the quidditch team! I actually got to play two matches, and caught the snitch in one of those! I met soooo many fun people, especially while delivering roses on Valentine's day. Can't wait to see what my next year will bring!"

April's second year was an eventful one, as she met new people and got herself pretty hurt during a quidditch game. After their regular seeker was taken out, April got to fill in as an alternate. By pure luck, she managed to grab she snitch and win the game for them. She grew closer to friends she made in her first year, like Norton and Kauri, and bonded with Geo, a girl in her dorm. She also had her first negative interaction with Andromeda Zhefarovich, but she just plans to ignore her from now on.

"My third year was fun. I loved taking Care of Magical Creatures as an elective, and I had a lot of fun with my friends! It's too bad I had a fight with Kauri, but at least we made up before the year was over. I'm glad I got to play more Quidditch, but very sad we lost in the end. I'll have to get better!"

April decided to only pick one elective in her third year, one she ended up really enjoying. She had a busy year, meeting many new people at various school events. Her aunt Amy took over Gambol & Jape's, which meant she could visit her on Brightstone weekends. Things went a bit sour for her when Kauri got a boyfriend, something April struggled with a little. But the two made up after the relationship ended, and April doesn't intend to let anything come between them again. She also had a good conversation with her stepsister October, which surprised her but also made her happy.
