P E R S O N A L I T Y
Adorah has been sheltered and hidden most of her life. While she was social in the early years, an incident that caused her family to relocate (described under "History") caused her parents to keep her in their new home away from most strangers. As they were unsure what caused the incident, they were worried that it may be repeated. Due to this seclusion, she's not very comfortable with meeting new people or making friends. She tends to speak before thinking and talks a lot since she's been away from people other than her family for a few years. Adorah is very inquisitive and finds strength in knowledge. She has read a lot of books for someone her age (maybe some that were a bit above her comprehension) and enjoys discussing history and the arts. She has an openness and vulnerability about her that can put her in uncomfortable situations, as she is not always the best reader of social cues. She is an extrovert at heart and tends to be strong willed when it comes down to what she believes is right.

Most prominent personality trait: Adorah is strives to be a perfectionist. She is afraid of disappointing others and works hard to please. She also suffers from anxiety which bleeds into every facet of her life.
Best traits: She is practical and objective which tends to make her the voice of reason. She is also very honest and curious.
Worst traits: She is very impressionable and reserved, which can lead to her hanging out with the wrong people when prompted. She also harbors her feelings.
Secrets: Adorah wishes that her parents had never adopted her and she would have been left an orphan (due to their aversion to her being a witch). She also has nightmares about the little girl she harmed when she was 7, though they are lessening as she gets older.
Fears: Adorah has a fear of not being accepted by her peers.
Special Skills: Advanced pianist, can type 95 WPM, knows very little to nothing about pop culture (muggle or magical)

M A G I C A L B R E A K D O W N

School: Hogwarts New Zealand
House: Ravenclaw
Clubs: Heta Omega
Notable Acheivements: Promoted to prefect during her 5th year
Wand: Vine Wand, 12 3/4", Dragon Heartstring Core
Vine Wood: "Vine wands are among the less common types, and I have been intrigued to notice that their owners are nearly always those witches or wizards who seek a greater purpose, who have a vision beyond the ordinary and who frequently astound those who think they know them best. Vine wands seem strongly attracted by personalities with hidden depths, and I have found them more sensitive than any other when it comes to instantly detecting a prospective match." (via Pottermore)
Dragon Heartstring Core: "As a rule, dragon heartstrings produce wands with the most power, and which are capable of the most flamboyant spells. Dragon wands tend to learn more quickly than other types. While they can change allegiance if won from their original master, they always bond strongly with the current owner. The dragon wand tends to be easiest to turn to the Dark Arts, though it will not incline that way of its own accord. It is also the most prone of the three cores to accidents, being somewhat temperamental." (via Pottermore)
Patronus: Fire-dwelling salamander
Boggart: Adorah's boggart is being surrounded by faceless individuals, closing in on her as they shout at her.
Mirror of Erised: Adorah would see her biological parents in the mirror, as she has always longed to know who they are to some extent, but the desire has increased as she has entered into the magical world.
Dreams: Adorah hopes to find a way to fit into the Wizarding World. She also wishes to find her birth parents, especially if they end up being magical.
Goals: At Hogwarts, she hopes to make a few lifelong friends, be honored with being a Prefect, and achieve high levels in all her OWLs and NEWTs. She hopes to be an astronomer after graduating.


H I S T O R Y

Adorah was adopted at the age of two by the Zumwalts. She was found abandoned at a St. James Church in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany when she was an estimated 2 weeks old. Her birthdate is an estimate. A note was attached to her that read "Adorah, dearest, it is safer this way. Love Mama." She still has the note in her posession, along with a necklace that was found around her neck. She was moved to the Rothenburg Orphanage, where she was cared for by the staff until Mary and Kurt Zumwalt brought her home. They lived on the outskirts of Berlin, where Mary was a teacher and Kurt was a pediatrician. When Adorah was six, they adopted their final child, Juniper, on a trip to Canterbury. Juniper and Adorah did not initially get along. This led to Adorah working to develop friendships with the neighbor girls Julienne and Sarah.

One unfortuante day two years later, Adorah had a magical outburst that caused the accidental death of Sarah. It was the first definite form of magic anyone had seen from Adorah, and the family relocated to New Zealand shortly thereafter. Mary stayed home with all the children, and Adorah was kept on a tight watch ever since. The only socialization Adorah had from the ages of 8-11 was her family. She developed a close relationship with Juniper, who is now her best friend. When Adorah's letter from Hogwarts arrived, her family was at first very confused and frustrated. However, her mother assisted her in acquiring all the supplies and taking her to the train. During the first semester of Year 1, she received a letter from her mother requesting not to come home for the holidays and to not write unless it was an emergency. Currently, Adorah is trying to figure out the best way to redevelop the relationship with her family.

When he sister was accepted into Hogwarts, her parents were much more tolerant of the situation but still held it out against Adorah. She struggled for the next few years, only going home during the summer months and living in a tense household. During the summer before her fifth year, she decided to start looking for her birth parents which made her adopted parents mad. They told her to not come home again once school started up. Adorah reached out to Nadia Kaster at The Daily Prophet to help put a notice in the newspaper.

Year One - September 2048 - May 2049
Adorah spent most of her first year in the library studying. She made a few acquaintances, but the only people she really called friends by the end of the year were Elliot Briar and maybe Molly Lamb. Her roommates seemed very passive aggressive, and this pushed to constantly be uncomfortable in the area she was supposed to call home. At the beginning of the year, she received a letter from her mother asking her not to write to them the whole year as "owls were drawing attention." This really caused a riff between Adorah and her family, until her adopted sister Juniper also received a letter that she would attending Hogwarts the next year. She let some of her school work slide in the first second semester, which led her to getting grades less desirable than she had hoped. Adorah went home for the break but spent most of her time outside or traveling to Obsidian Harbour.
