Wand: Curved 14 Inch Flexible Hornbeam Wand with Billywig Stinger Core

Length: A little on the longer side of things, wands of this length are slightly more uncommon and not easily forgotten by others.
Style: Bending to its side, this wand is more difficult to aim than its straighter counterparts but provides character that some simply cannot pass by.
Wood: Hornbeam wands are often found with wizards and witches having what can be best described as an obsession - a single all-consuming focus in life. Adapting to its owner quickly, it will not work well for other people and will sometimes not perform spells which are counter to its owner's character.
Core: Billywig stingers make for temperate cores, but they are mildly useful when used to heal. Wands with this core tend to what they want to do, making them good for people who are flexible in nature.
Flexibility: Flexible: Not easily broken, this wand performs under strenuous circumstances with little effort - though how well it performs is ultimately up to its wielder.
Hogwarts House: Slytherin


Appearance
Hair: Long, straight, and naturally mousey brown, dyed bleach blonde
Eyes: Bright and blue.
Build: Long limbed, with a hint of her father's tendency towards plumpness.
Complexion: Pale and clear. Gets tan lines easily.
Style: Practical and cosy.
Distinguishing Features: Caro is very good at blending into her surroundings and being 'invisible' in a group.
Playby: Abigail Breslin



Personal
Personality: Caro is a determined and goal-oriented young woman, hard-working when it suits her needs, but when something doesn't serve her goals she finds it difficult to pay it any attention. Caro's fixation since she was young has been of stories of travel and adventure, and she can be dismissive of anything and anyone that doesn't fit in to her goals and plans she views everything and everyone in her life up to the time she's old enough to have adventures of her own as placeholders. Never having had many permanent friends she doesn't view things like loyalty or consistency as especially important, and can come across as distant and disconnected from the people around her.

Strengths:
-When Caro sets her mind to something she stops at nothing to accomplish it. She plans her life meticulously, and does everything that needs to be done to get what she wants.
-Caro is very patient, and can put up with things taking time even when she would rather they didn't.
-Caro is an excellent listener, and will happily listen to someone talking for hours, as long as the subject is of interest to her.
Weaknesses:
-Caro has difficulty expressing her emotions, and can come across as uncaring at times.
-Caro finds it difficult to care about other people's problems when they don't interest her or have anything to do with her, and can abandon those around her in times of need.
-Caro has an extreme grass is greener mindset, and often fails to enjoy the beauty and excitement of what's around her, because she's so fixated on the next goal.
Hobbies:
Winter Sports - While not as involved as her older sister, Caro is a keen and experienced skiier, snowboarder, and ice skater.
Reading - Caro has taken every chance she got since she was very small to absorb stories of as many different places and people as possible.
Photography - Caro developed a fixation with travel photography young, and is rarely seen without a camera in her hands.
Personality Type: INTJ (The Architect)
It's lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, Architects know this all too well. Architects form just two percent of the population, and women of this personality type are especially rare, forming just 0.8% of the population - it is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with the Architect personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy.

Strengths: Quick, Imaginative and Strategic Mind, High Self-Confidence, Independent and Decisive, Hard-Working and Determined, Open-Minded, Jack-of-all-Trades
Weaknesses: Arrogant, Judgmental, Overly Analytical, Loathe Highly Structured Environments, Clueless in Romance
History: Caro's mother Alison was the black sheep halfblood daughter of a pureblood family, attending Hogwarts Scotland in her youth. Despite following her family into Slytherin, she was never treated well by them, and as soon as she was old enough she fled to New Zealand, as far away as possible, where she met Mark, a recent HNZ graduate Gryffindor, who fell in love with her at first sight, and promised to help her make New Zealand her home. It took Alison a long time to warm up to Mark, but she fell for him on a ski trip their group of friends took in Queenstown, and a few years later, Mark had saved enough to live his dream of buying a lodge there. They worked together to set up a magical holiday resort, with Alison running the lodge and Mark teaching all sorts of winter sports to wizards who wanted to practice them without fear of muggles passing by, and shortly after Alison and Mark married, their first daughter Lizzie was born, followed by Caro three years later. From an early age Caro was never as outdoorsy as her father and older sister, preferring to stay indoors and help her mother manage the lodge and spend time with their guests. She was enchanted by their stories of places they had visited and come from, and Caro's heart was set early on travelling the globe. She grew more and more obsessed as she got older with travel and adventure, absorbing all the books on the subject she could get her hands on, and planning trips around the globe and exciting activities to do in those places. She wound up taking on an attitude of seeing everything until she was old enough to travel as filler, an attitude that sticks with her to this day.
Health: Caro has had a couple of broken bones over the years, par for the course for someone whose whole life revolves around a ski lodge, but she's never had as many accidents (or been quite as fit) as Lizzie.


Details
Goals: Caro's life is driven by one goal; to travel the world.
Fears: Being trapped, small spaces.
Secrets: Caro loves her home a lot more than she would admit even to herself.
Regrets: Caro regrets that she hasn't worked harder to make travel happen on her own.


Favourites
Colour: Green
Food: Fried chicken
Smell: Ice, a warm fireplace, parchment
Music Genre: Easy listening
Animal: Penguin

First Year

Caro laid low most of her first year at Hogwarts. The excitement of travelling and living somewhere totally new was offset by the knowledge that this would be her home for seven entire years, and that she had to share that home with her more popular sister. Caro was relieved that despite being a close call, she wasn't sorted into the same house as Lizzie, settling in to her own niche in Slytherin. She didn't make many friends, though she and Sophie Wilson bonded over their sister troubles, and their work on the Hogwarts Monthly, which came to define most of Caro's year. She was taken on as an intern photographer, and enjoyed every moment working on her segment of the paper, discovering a new passion for journalism.
Caro could almost cry with excitement. After eleven years trapped in the same home with the same family and thousands of people telling stories of their wonderful exploits around the world, Caro was free. She had left home, gotten on a train and travelled far away, just like she had always dreamed. She knew that eventually Hogwarts would begin to feel like home, dull and repetitive and restricting, but right now it was everything she had ever dreamed. A new place to explore and learn and discover, new friends to meet, new sights to see, all of it foreign and beautiful and exciting. She felt alive in a way she never had before, buzzing with adrenaline as she followed the rest of the group into the great hall.

Seeing the banners bearing the logos of the different houses brought Caro somewhat back to herself. She could see Lizzie in the distance, seated over at the Gryffindor table, and her heart sank slightly. Caro loved her sister, but their differences made her impossible to spend time with, and seven years spent living in Lizzie's shadow was a terrible thought to start her dreams of independence and adventure off with. The rest of the hall was so interesting though and she distracted herself quickly, looking around at the other tables and their banners, the bright lights and new faces. And the hat in the middle of it all.

"Taylor, Caroline!"

Caro had been focusing on the sorting going on in front of her, but she still wasn't quite prepared to hear her own name. Her confident walk to the hat was interrupted by a soft "WOO!" coming, no doubt, from Lizzie. Great. Caro's smile fell slightly and her hands began to tremble as she took her seat and donned the hat, quietly hoping she was enough like her Slytherin mother not to wind up with her. 'Please, hat... I don't know if you care what I think about all this, but don't make me live with her...' She thought worriedly, glancing over at the Gryffindor table again.

"It could do you a whole lot of good to live with her and stand on your own despite it all, you know. I can see you have that within you. But if you're quite quite sure you'd rather go a completely separate way... alright, alright. SLYTHERIN!"

Second Year

Caro's second year was almost entirely uneventful, the combination of a quiet social year and quiet year on the paper. The only event of note that really happened to her was the amusement when she invited her friend Sophie and Sophie's older sister to stay at their lodge, and discovered to the younger girls delights that both older sisters intensely disliked each other.

Third Year

Caro's third year was mainly focused on her photography. She worked hard on the school paper, putting a lot of work and pride into her segment, and in her spare time spent more time taking photos for fun, to distract herself from how cooped up she felt in the castle. Not socialising much, Caro made few friends and mostly kept to herself throughout the year.

Fourth Year

Caro began her fourth year with a bang. In a rare moment of cooperation with her older sister, Caro helped throw a huge party at home, at which she tried and failed to make herself more popular. Although the party was fun, her failed attempt at popularity was disheartening, and Caro withdrew somewhat, focusing on her work for the Hogwarts Monthly, and pleasantly surprised to be given a position on the yearbook as well. With more to do than ever Caro was occupied most of the time, though partway into the year, she recieved a shock as she discovered her sister was dating another girl. Though Caro hadn't expected it it helped her connect to Lizzie somewhat, for the first time in years.

Fifth Year

Caro's fifth year had one focus; Nixon Mercury. After a valentine in the previous year, Caro became certain that her fellow Accio and Hogwarts Monthly worker was flirting with her. She kept both eyes on the Huflepuff throughout the year, a focus that paid off at the Yule Ball, when Caro shared her first kiss with Nixon under the mistletoe. Though he was attending the ball with someone else, Caro was sure they were both on the same page. Though she sent him a romantic valentines rose those affections went unreturned, but Caro was determined that there was something special between them, and it was only a matter of time before Nixon revealed his true feelings.

Sixth Year

Caro's sixth year started off good, as she and Lizzie once again set aside their differences to throw a party. Though Caro was bitter that the party was once again Lizzie's Party, she put up with the irritation to enjoy the celebration and the pride of being one of the hosts of the party of the year. Upon returning to Hogwarts Caro set her sights on sealing the deal and solidifying her relationship with Nixon, a plan that immediately had a spanner named Shane Ackley thrown in its work. The two shared a spontaneous kiss, and Caro found herself doubting everything she thought she felt about Nixon. She attended the Yule Ball with him in a last ditch effort to put her plan into action, but after a horrible evening, Caro was shocked when Nixon transferred out of Hogwarts altogether. Heart broken, Caro decided to put boys behind her and focus on her duties for Hogwarts Monthly and Accio, though at the Valentines dance she struck up a conversation with a Ravenclaw boy she couldn't help but find promising.
