Wand: Straight 15 1/2 Inch Sturdy Black Walnut Wand with Essence of Belladonna 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: Straight and smooth: what else is there to say?
Wood: Black Walnut wands are especially aware of self deception and may not perform as expected for a witch or wizard in a state of inner conflict. Self-aware and assured wizards will have found a powerful and loyal companion, however.
Core: As a wand core, essence of belladonna is useful in Potions and Herbology work. The poisonous nature of this substance makes the wand more suspicious than most wands are of the wand caster. For this reason, wands with this core take a long time to bond with the wand caster.
Flexibility: Sturdy: A solid wand for any witch or wizard - easy to use, and highly dependable.
Hogwarts House: Slytherin
Post-Hogwarts Education: NCEA levels 5, 6 and 7 passed in night school, teaching degree from Otago University


Appearance
Hair: Black, wavy, and cropped short, out of the way.
Eyes: Brown
Build: Tall and strong, and on the plump side.
Complexion: Tan skin that shows her Maori heritage, with tattoos in traditional Maori designs covering her arms.
Style: Simple and on the butch side, denim and flannel dominate her wardrobe, though she has a few dressier, more feminine outfits for work.
Distinguishing Features: Kahurangi's tattoos stand out no matter how far away you are, and she has a distinct wart on her left cheek.
Playby: Anika Moa


Personal
Personality: Kahurangi is a driven person, fixating on goals and not stopping until she achieves them. Outside of her personal social circles she's a relatively introverted person, preferring her own company and solitude to being in crowded places with others. She doesn't actively dislike or avoid people though, enjoying time with her friends, and occasionally displaying her good sense of humour. She often seeks out peace and tranquility, places to be by herself and focus, but also loves to do cathartic activities like rugby to let it all go and just have fun.
Strengths:
-Kahurangi puts a lot of effort into accomplishing things she wants to, and never leaves an ambition uncompleted.
-A team player, and always does what she can to make sure the people around her are enjoying themselves and doing the best they can.
-Kahurangi has an incredible ability to focus absolutely when she needs to get things done.
Weaknesses:
-Kahurangi can become somewhat single-minded when she has a goal, ruling out other options or potentials, and focusing on what she's decided on, often forgetting to assess whether she actually still wants it or not.
-Can be intolerant of indecisiveness or laziness, finds it frustrating.
-Doesn't know how to cope well with new situations, when she's not sure yet of what she wants to accomplish or how to get there.
Hobbies:
-Gardening: Kahurangi gardened with her mother and siblings, and the habit has always reminded her of home and family, making her feel comfortable and at ease.
-Music: Kahurangi's father taught her guitar, and for a while in university she played and sang in a band.
-Dogs: Kahurangi has always kept pet dogs, currently having a terrier named Sonny and a golden lab named Aleisha.
-Rugby: Kahurangi plays in a casual rugby team, and watches every game she can get to.
Personality Type: ISTJ (The Logistician)
The Logistician personality type is thought to be the most abundant, making up around 13% of the population. Their defining characteristics of integrity, practical logic and tireless dedication to duty make Logisticians a vital core to many families, as well as organizations that uphold traditions, rules and standards, such as law offices, regulatory bodies and military. People with the Logistician personality type enjoy taking responsibility for their actions, and take pride in the work they do - when working towards a goal, Logisticians hold back none of their time and energy completing each relevant task with accuracy and patience.

Strengths: Honest and Direct, Strong-Willed and Dutiful, Very Responsible, Calm and Practical, Create and Enforce Order, Jack-Of-All-Trades
Weaknesses: Stubborn, Insensitive, Always by the Book, Judgemental, Often Unreasonably Blame Themselves
History: Kahurangi was born to a muggle father, Thomas, and halfblood witch mother, Mereana, in 2007. Her father didn't know anything about magic until after Mereana was pregnant, and it came as something of a shock to him. Thomas and Mereana married young, and while Mereana had a successful career selling potions, Thomas struggled to find work in the crashing muggle economy with no education, and wound up bouncing from bad job to bad job. Kahurangi had a happy upbringing though, spending a lot of time with her mother in the garden, learning about the ingredients Mereana used and how she would grow and prepare them. Kahurangi showed signs of magic young, and Mereana tried to prepare Thomas for her Hogwarts letter coming, but he was still unhappy when it did. He hated the idea of their oldest daughter going away for seven years, studying things he didn't understand. Despite seeing Mereana's success, he was still wary of magic, and eventually agreed only if Kahurangi promised to go to muggle university when she finished, so she would have the opportunities in life he never did. Kahurangi had an average time at Hogwarts, graduating with decent marks, and as promised went to Otago University when she was finished. In her time at school, Kahurangi had always liked to tutor her fellow students, and after some thinking, she decided to study primary school teaching. It felt like a great idea, but never having been to muggle high school, Kahurangi was far behind in several subjects, and struggled a lot, eventually dropping out towards the end of second year, her grades on practical teaching work high, but essays and general knowledge slumping. Her father was furious, but Kahurangi stayed in Dunedin and found work, spending a few years working in a cafe. The gaps in her education ate away at her, and eventually she enrolled in night classes, getting her high school qualifications in her late twenties, and re-entering university at twenty-nine, determined not to let her past failure define her life. With the added education, she was able to gain a teaching degree, and more important than her father's opinion, make herself proud. Without the goal of working towards that degree she found herself drifting, not certain what direction she wanted to go from here. She applied to work at Hogwarts on a whim, not having had any luck applying to muggle schools, and the shock when she was offered a job was overwhelming.
Health: Kahurangi has always been in perfect health, other than the occasional normal injury or illness.

Details
Goals: To do her job as an educator well, and one day start a family of her own.
Fears: Failing a student, dying alone.
Secrets: Kahurangi keeps her desire to be a mother mostly private.
Regrets: She's torn about whether or not she regrets how much time and effort she's put into her career. It's paid off well, but she often feels something missing.
