Other distinguishing physical traits: Corrine has a small gap in between her two front teeth; Corrine likes to keep her nails long and often keeps them painted
Verbal tags: Corrine speaks with a very slight Greek accent. Her parents come from money and very old wizarding families, so they forced their children to learn several languages as they traveled often, thus resulting in her not having as heavy an accent as she might otherwise.
Corrine is rather loud when shes excited or irritated, but speaks at a fairly normal volume the rest of the time.
Physical imperfections or something would most like to change:
Corrine would like to fix the gap in her teeth, but her parents have challenged her to learn the spell herself. They are hoping shell outgrow her desire to fix it prior to learning the spell necessary to correct her teeth.
Years of schooling: Corrine attended a private school for wizarding families in her area. In this school, the children did learn basic knowledge that non-wizarding children would learn (language, mathematics, history) while also preparing them for life as elite wizards and witches. This was mostly etiquette type training and learning the rules and customs of various wizarding communities as none of the children were old enough for wands.
Corrine is currently attending Hogwarts New Zealand and has been sorted into Gryffindor House

If shes angry at someone else, Corrine will tell the person even if it results in an argument. Shed prefer to get it out than to keep thinking about being so angry at the person.
Things that embarrass: Finding out that her crush knows she likes him
Method of handling embarrassment: As Corrine isn't easily embarrassed, she doesn't handle it well. She is known to turn beet red and to react defensively when put in this type of situation. She also has an irrational desire of wanting to be swallowed by the ground or being vanished.
Fears: Corrine is afraid of thestrals. She's never seen one, but the idea of them being around without her being able to see them freaks her out.
Method of handling fear: Corrine is a hide her face behind her hands yet peek through them kind of girl. When she is afraid, she seeks out comfort. As a child, this meant stealing into her parent's bed during a thunderstorm. As an older child, this meant hugging her favorite stuffed dragon. He's in the bottom of her trunk, but she doesn't know what the other girls would think if they saw her hugging a stuffed toy at night, so she leaves him there and takes him out when she's completely alone.
