Name: Primrose Cromwell
Occupation/House: Slytherin Fifth Year
Wand: unicorn hair - dogwood - 10"
Physical Description: Prim's thick platinum blonde hair is almost always a pastel shade - purple, turquoise, pink - which seems to fit her colorful personality well. For a while, she liked to claim she was a metamorphmagus but that was easily disproven when she couldn't change her features on command. Her eyes are a light blue which may take on the appearance of violet in certain lights, though that's mostly just a trick of her make-up skills. Though naturally a pretty girl, Prim is a sort what loves her make-up and happily gives her friends make-overs or tips when they ask her. Prim has a style of her own, dressing in a way that makes her feel pretty - she doesn't give a toss what others may think of her. She likes to feel pretty, indeed, and takes special care of herself. At fifteen, she is self-taught in dozens of beauty charms and potions.
Personality: It has long been a mystery why Prim was sorted into Slytherin House. She really doesn't seem all that conniving, nor is she particularly ambitious in a way that her schoolmates would notice. Her ambitions are made clear outside of school, during the summer months and holidays when every free moment is spent shut in her room with potion sets, experimenting. She has her sights set on one day owning her very own beauty line and she is working hard on that endlessly. She's incredibly inventive and clever and, though her parents would love to see her apply herself to 'more reasonable' endeavors, she is determined to make her own dreams come true.
Prim is extremely outgoing. She is friendly, confident, and if she doesn't see you as a person worthy of being a friend, she certainly sees you as a potential future client. She is already working on her brand, so it is paramount that she makes a positive impact on those around her even now. While there are definitely people she does not like, she rarely makes hr feelings public. Some may think that fake, but she just feels it is maturity - picking her battles - and some people really just aren't worth the headache.
In addition to beauty, Prim has a soft spot for cute little animals. She has a cat that attends Hogwarts with her as a companion and, at home, she has a hedgehog that her parents see after for her while she's at school.
History: Mudblood. It's a term that Prim went eleven years having never heard and, when she did hear it, she laughed. How absurd that one be judged based on their lineage! And, yet, having been sorted into Slytherin House, she quickly learned that there were still witches and wizards who did put stock in one's magical heritage. If anything, Prim found herself proud to be a so-called 'Mudblood'. While others were inherently gifted with magic, she was the first in a long line of non-magical 'muggles' to have possession of such a gift. It made her feel unique.
Prim's parents were obviously caught by surprise when they found out that their daughter was, in fact, a witch. It certainly explained a number of incidents that had been serious curiosities to them over the years. To their credit, they handled the news with grace. Her mother is a professional fashion consultant, hired by the wealthy to create chic and current looks, so Prim comes by her style honestly. Her father, CEO of a giant corporation, is more serious-minded - it took a bit more convincing for him to accept that his little girl was a witch.
Lightning struck twice, though. The following year, her younger brother received his letter, as well.
Prim's home life has been tumultuous at times. Her father and mother have awful rows sometimes, mostly over her mother's career or his father's long hours at the office. Prim is so used to their shouting matches that she no longer finds them frightening. It seems to her that all parents fight, anyway. She and her brother, who is only one year younger, have their fair share of fights, as well. But, at their core, they all love one another. Prim was genuinely thrilled to learn her brother would be coming to Hogwarts with her. She's entirely supportive of him, even if they do chide each other pretty much every time they pass one another in a corridor.
Relationships: Brother, 14
