Sapphire James Michaels

Age: 14
Birthday: December 23, 2033
Astrological Sign: Capricorn.
Capricorn is a sign that represents time and responsibility. These individuals possess an inner state of independence that enables significant progress both in their personal and professional lives. They are masters of self-control and have the ability to lead the way, and make solid and realistic plans. They will learn from their mistakes and get to the top based solely on their experience and expertise. Belonging to the element of Earth , like Taurus and Virgo, this is the last sign in the trio of practicality and grounding. Not only do they focus on the material world, but they have the ability to use the most out of it. Unfortunately, this element also makes them stiff and sometimes too stubborn to move from one perspective or point in a relationship. They have a hard time accepting differences of other people that are too far from their character. It is not easy to win over the attention and the heart of a Capricorn, but once their walls break and their heart melts they stay committed for a lifetime. Their relationships with other signs can be challenging due to their difficult character, but any shared feeling that comes from such a deep emotional place is a reward for their partner's efforts. Shown sensitivity comes through acts rather than words, and years are often needed for them to open enough to chat about their actual emotional problems. Capricorn is intelligent, stable and reliable, and this makes its representatives loyal and extremely good friends, standing in one's life as pillars on their way to their dreams. They need to be surrounded by people who don't ask too many nosey questions, know where boundaries are set, but also warm, open-hearted and loyal enough to follow their lead. They will not collect too many friends in this lifetime but turn to those who make them feel at peace, intelligent and honest at all times. Capricorns will set high standards for themselves, but their honesty, dedication, and perseverance will lead them to their goals. They value loyalty and hard work over all other things and keep associates with these qualities close even when they might be intellectually inferior. Concentrated and resourceful, this is someone who gets the job done, doesn't mind long hours, and commits to the final product completely. Capricorn women are ambitious, persistent, responsible and reliable. She only wants to find someone to make her smile, and can't wait to open up and feel the real pull of emotion that makes her warm up to the possibilities that lie in the future. It will take some time for her to lower her guard and feel safe and comfortable enough to show just how sensitive and caring she can be when she is in love. She wants her partners responsible, calm, and hard-working, and needs to know that she is taken care of if something bad happens in the future. A Capricorn woman needs to feel comfortable with people she dates and needs time to decide what she wants out of each relationship. Born in a Sun sign that exalts Mars, her instincts and initiative are strong, and this makes her a passionate lover always in charge of her own life no matter the outer circumstances.
Hair Color/Length: Shoulder length, bouncy, black as night
Eyes: Big sapphire eyes, full lashes
Face: Soft heart, big ears under her hair, long nose, full lips
Clothing Style: She doesn't conform to any one clothing style, tending to wear whatever strikes her fancy at the time. She prefers darker colors and finds denim comfortable. She does have a favorite pair of combat boots.




Favorites:

Food: Fried Chicken and French Fries
Dessert: Peanut Butter Cookies with a hint of Cinnamon
Animals: Sapphire has discovered that she has a love for magical animals and finds all of them extremely fascinating.
Drink: Hot chocolate with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon
Color: Blacks, Darker Blues
Books: Since starting school she picked up "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and hasn't put it down since
Movie: She'll never admit it, but she loves "Pride & Prejudice" with Kiera Knightley.
Music: She likes instrumentals the best, but again it all depends on her mood. Sometimes she'll be jamming to emo rock, other times nineties classics, etc. etc.



Personality:

-Sapphire is a rather thoughtless person. As in, she doesn't think anything through. She just acts. If her interest is sparked, she has to know or do. If she's not being deliberately careful, she'll say whatever she's thinking.

-Temperamental.

-Loyal to a fault. Now, winning her loyalty is hard, but it's also hard to lose.

-Protective. It's a surprising trait if you don't know her, as she seems like she doesn't care.

-Sapphire can seem cold. Most of the time she's uninterested in the people and things around her. But that is because she's usually focused on something or the other, and that makes her oblivious.

-Mischievious/Clever. Sapphire became very good at distracting adults and bullies at a young age. Finding the best places to hide came shortly after, as did her quick reflexes and fighting skills.

-She cares about, well, everything, way more than she lets on.

- Sapphire has a strong desire to get out and see the world.

- She is self-reliant, and has learned to adapt quickly.



Other

-She lived in a small orphanage on the outskirts of Arrowtown in New Zealand.


- She's been recently adopted by her uncle James and lives with him and her brother Onyx in New Zealand. She's still adjusting to life there but has quickly turned her room into a safe haven.

-She used to have an insufferable sweet tooth and keeps a stash of suckers and bubblegum that she keeps stocked by running errands for the local grocer.


- As she's grown, her sweet tooth has faded. She's taken to chewing mint gum, as she likes the refreshing feeling it leaves in her mouth.

-Sapph has a secret weakness for long, flowing dresses. She keeps several hidden in the back of her closet.

-Sapph is a horrible cuddler. She loves affection but hates to admit it.

- Sapph has quickly attached herself to her Uncle James, though she has no idea how to show affection and has distanced herself from him for fear of his changing his mind.



Interests

- Sapphire has a minor interest in music, and is currently learning to play the guitar. She finds it a good way to help express herself as she struggles with her words.


- Sapphire has developed a minor interest in Quidditch since she became an Alt. Beater for the Slytherin house team. She’s using it as a more positive outlet for her fighting skills she acquired living at the orphanage.

- Sapphire has a mild interest in prank items and pranks, as they spark her mischievous tendencies and are (usually) not harmful.

- Sapphire has discovered an intense interest in magical creatures.

- Sapphire has begun dabbling in Photography


Wand

Pear wood, Unicorn Hair core, 14 inches, Slightly Springy Flexibility.

Pear Wood: This golden-toned wood produces wands of splendid magical powers, which give of their best in the hands of the warm-hearted, the generous and the wise. Possessors of pear wands are, in my experience, usually popular and well-respected. I do not know of a single instance where a pear wand has been discovered in the possession of a Dark witch or wizard. Pear wands are among the most resilient, and I have often observed that they may still present a remarkable appearance of newness, even after many years of hard use.
Sapphire may not act like it, but she is extremely kind-hearted and giving. If she would only open up more to those around her, and be a bit more trusting of herself, she may find that others would be drawn by her warmth.
Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard.
Minor disadvantages of unicorn hair are that they do not make the most powerful wands (although the wand wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may ‘die’ and need replacing.
Longer wands might suit taller wizards, but they tend to be drawn to bigger personalities, and those of a more spacious and dramatic style of magic. However, no single aspect of wand composition should be considered in isolation of all the others, and the type of wood, the core, and the flexibility may either counterbalance or enhance the attributes of the wand’s length.
Sapphire is rather short for her age, but this is made up for in her snarky attitude and her dramatic tendencies, though she prefers to call it a sense of showmanship.
Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair - although, again, this factor ought not to be considered separately from the wand wood, core, and length, nor of the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will combine to make the wand in question unique.
Sapphire is usually very set in her way of thinking, though she is surprisingly open to new ways of thought. She'll consider anything logically, and if she decides she was wrong or right will change her mind accordingly.



Family

Grandmother: Ruby Michaels
Uncle: Jayce Michaels
Aunt: Emily Walsh
Cousin: Ember Michaels
Cousin: Amethyst "Amaya" Michaels
Cousin: Jasper Michaels
Uncle: James Michaels
Father: Jackson Michaels
Mother: Sarah Corrins
Brother: Onyx Michaels
Aunt: Myra Michaels

Sapphire has only recently discovered her family and is intimidated by the sheer size of it, feeling out of place in a group of people that have been together for so long. Her brother and two of her cousins attend school with her. She has grown to deeply care for her twin in the year she's known him, and although she tires easily of Onyx's antics, she feels as if perhaps they're beginning to understand each other. She and Amaya don't speak much, aside from the witty quips they throw at each other in passing. She finds her younger cousin less intimidating than the others in her family, but that could be due to Amaya's apparent lack of interest. As for Jasper, he seems to be more interested in what Onyx is doing. So if Onyx is being a nuisance, you can be sure Jasper isn't too far behind. Sapphire hasn't decided what she thinks of the boy yet. The only other member of her family she's spoken to is her Uncle James. They've exchanged a few letters, and Sapphire is now living with him and Onyx. She's still reeling from the fact that her aunt Myra is the woman who runs the orphanage, and also the one who told the rest of their family she had died in infancy. Sapphire has been hurt deeply by this information, as Myra spent 13 years emotionally and verbally abusing Sapphire. She's slow to trust that the life she has now isn't too good to be true.



Friends

Jacob Kingsley: Sapphire and Jacob met in their first year when Sapphire ran into him in the courtyard- literally. The two soon fell into an easy friendship, though it wasn't until much later on that Sapphire would consider them such. She is fairly protective of Jacob, though she doubts he knows it. Jacob has managed to win Sapphire's loyalty, despite the falling out he had with her twin after a disastrous fling between the two.

What He Thinks of Her:
Jacob feels like he's known Sapphire for more than just three years. Every year, they seem to grow closer which makes Jacob happy.

Diana Holland: Sapphire and Diana have a rocky relationship. Whereas Sapphire admires the girls quick wit and how she speaks her mind, she doesn't like the way Diana speaks to Sapph's other friends. They've fought over it before and stopped speaking for a bit because of it. Sapphire isn't bothered so much by Diana's meanness but doesn't hesitate to tell the other Slytherin when she feels Diana has taken it too far. They've made an uneasy peace for the time being.

What She Thinks of Her: Diana has conflicted feelings about Sapphire. She admires her independence and sense of humor but doesn't like it when Sapphire challenges her and the things she says or does.

Kira Wolf: Perhaps Sapphire's best friend, Kira has won the Slytherin's unwavering devotion and loyalty. Sapphire would do anything the Ravenclaw asked. They tend to spend the holidays together at Kira's inn, though when at school Kira spends much of her time in the library. Sapphire is secretly touched by the Ravenclaw's support, and firmly believes she wouldn't be any good as a beater if Kira wasn't there to cheer her on at games. Kira is one of the few people Sapphire has opened up to and tends to turn to Kira first if she has a problem.


What She Thinks of Her: Sapphire has always been quiet and reserved. She's small but fierce. Kira doesn't know if she should look out for her or kill her or both. Kira adores Sapphire and would do anything she could to help the girl out- even when Sapphire doesn't like it.

Mervyn Strangeways: Sapphire's relationship with Mervyn is ever changing. The two met when Mervyn was pranked by another Slytherin and Sapphire ended up taking him to the hospital wing. She was confused by her fascination with the boy, and after several mishaps, the two settled in an easy friendship. She was originally content to ignore her crush on the boy, but due to her brother's incessant meddling, was forced to admit to Mervyn that she cared for him. The two began dating and agreed that Onyx didn't need to know. The more time the two spent together, the more she was confused by her growing feelings for the boy. She'd been scared of what could happen, worried that she'd mess everything up and lose him completely. That fear intensified when she realized she'd fallen in love with him. She'd decided to tell him once they returned to school for their fourth year, but was blindsided when he broke up with her.


Avaria Lockwood: Avaria didn't give Sapphire much of a choice in their friendship. Having stayed for a little while at the Home where Sapphire lives, Ava became devoted to the Slytherin when Sapphire stepped in and protected Ava from bullies. Sapphire and Ava hit it off after that, with Ava helping spike Sapphire's interest in music. When Ava left the Home, Sapphire never expected to see the blond again. But when Ava found her at Hogwarts, she couldn't seem to shake the bubbly Ravenclaw. Sapphire has accepted that Ava won't leave her be and has taken the girl under her wing.

What She Thinks of Her: Ava thinks Sapphire is the bravest, strongest person ever. Aside from her papa, of course. She worships Sapphire and thinks anything she says is brilliant and perfect. She adores Sapphire and is constantly making her little presents or bringing her little gifts she thinks the Slytherin would like.



School Life

House: Slytherin
Clubs: Alternate Beater for the Quidditch Team
Classes: Potions, Herbology, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Charms, Care of Magical Creatures
Favorite Class: Care of Magical Creatures
Least Favorite Class: She doesn't have one. She enjoys all her classes, though if there's something she doesn't enjoy it's studying. Her mind takes her too many places when she tries and it's like taking another class.
Boggart: After an unsurprising Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson, her boggart was, in fact, herself.
Patronus: Unknown
Mirror of Erised: Sapphire wouldn't bother looking, but if she had to, it would be her standing with her brother and her parents, where she and Onyx are both successful and their parents are doting.
Plans for the Future: Sapphire has decided (with a bit of guidance from her Ravenclaw) that she wants to go into Magizooligy. Animals fascinate her, especially the magical kind. She also wants to travel and see the world and has discovered a bit of a passion for photography.
Hogwarts Hopes and Ambitions: She doesn't really have many plans. She tends to live in the moment, aside from when Kira makes her plan for her future. For right now, she likes to spend time with her friends and practice for Quidditch.
A Page From Your Diary:
Sapphire actually keeps a journal. A typical entry would go something like this. 'Onyx did this, and I wanted to kill him. Though he did something nice-ish so I didn't. Merv said something and I did something stupid. Why can't I be cool with him? His Majesty and I talked over lunch. That was cool. Kira made me study again. Bleh. Quidditch is coming up I should get back on the broom and practice."
Pets: Stone (Owl), Midnight (Half-Kneazle)
