Challenging |
If someone says they can fly faster, fly higher, eat/drink more, stare longer or anything of the sort, you bet she’s going to challenge you.
Daring |
Ruby is a bit of a thrill seeker and likes to try new things, even if they are scary. (Although, this does not typically include romantic situations…)
Generous |
Need a text book? A extra pair of socks? A hex on that guy in herbology that keeps stepping on your puffapods? Probably won’t get any food from her though, without a fight at least..
Playful |
Fun- loving and energetic, Ruby loves to be doing something entertaining, especially with friends.
Careless |
Usually does not plan ahead before doing risky things.
Devious |
She finds it hard to sit through long lectures and usually ends up causing some kind of mischief in class to entertain herself.
Reactionary/Impulsive |
There is not a big filter between her brain and her mouth and actions.
Naïve |
Her naivety comes from being alone as an only child for so long (until Hogwarts). This is especially true with flirting and lies by others. She believes everyone is a good person until their words or actions say different.
Stubborn/Obsessive |
When Ruby sets here sights on something there is not much that can stop her from obtaining it, whether it be a physical item, person, a plan, or knowledge of some sort.
Moody |
Although normally happy, her mood can change at the drop of a hat if something is said/done that doesn't sit right with her. Which can make her scary at times. This also happens when she is concentrating hard and is interrupted.
Although her parents did the best they could, Ruby's academic career wasn't the best. That, and she would rather play outside than learn arithmetic. She struggles with math and spelling the most and is not very book-smart and can be rather sensitive about this.


Born on the outskirts of the quaint village of Inistioge in the countryside of Ireland, Ruby lived as an only child with her muggle mother and half-blood father. Homeschooled, her days were spent wondering the forests, upturning leaves and logs to find the crawlies that lived underneath. Her winters spent drawing by the fire bundled in the clothing and sweaters that her mother had made, waiting for Pap to finish cooking supper.  At the tender age of 8, while climbing a tree near her home, Ruby was startled by a bird flying from its nest and fell, injuring her spine. Being young, she recovered almost entirely apart from her legs. While she could still use them, they were weak due to nerve damage suffered from the fall and would be like that for the rest of her life according to the doctors.  Walking farther than from one end of the small house to the other became a chore, and running was almost impossible. The only time she felt her legs become more responsive, or lighter, was when her father was around.  Ruby had seen her father do strange things before, like stirring soups without touching the spoon or watering the garden patch without touching the watering can. He would tease and pick at her lovingly like he usually did, but she could see sadness in his eyes whenever she would fall or stumble.  

    That sadness faded the morning that she received her Hogwarts letter. Her father almost jumped over the house in excitement, her mother a little more reserved. The whole diagon alley was almost a blur to her, as everything happened so quickly. Suddenly, in her world of just her parents and her, there where witches and wizards, magic and wands, beasts and owls. One thing she did remember, and fondly, was when her father took her to buy her wand. He had wished that he could give her his wand, but blamed mum for ‘misplacing’ it years ago. She was shocked at the chuckle that came from his belly when a dogwood wand had chosen her. “You are my offspring, ern’t ya!” His large hand ruffled up her hair and they laughed together, though at the time she wasn’t sure what that meant. Ruby stood there and watched as the other children ran through the wall, with their luggage, to platform 9 and ¾ , determination building in her chest. Moving her legs as fast as she could possibly make them, she ran.

    The first day of flight class was the beginning of life again for Ruby. There was no longer anything holding her back from where she wanted to go, do or see. After many weeks of being scolded for unauthorized broom riding, Ruby began to master her craft. This led to her extreme fascination with Quidditch and her unyielding want to be a chaser. She's been applying since her second year to get on the team. Her first year is when she also met Gurgi, her pet snail. He's just as mischievous as she is.

    Although she did excel in flying and getting into trouble, academics did not come easily for Ruby. She was not used to the ‘school’ type of learning, which she found boring in most cases but she did try. Charms, however, she did find rather enjoyable, unfortunately for the rest of her house and unlucky victims to her pranks.
“aye, I am my fathers offspring.”
