Golden Background


Concept: Marietta Edgecombe is the "sneak" who ultimately betrays Dumbledore's army to Dolores Umbridge during Harry Potter's fifth year. Outside of that, she is a student at Hogwarts that is very loyal to her mother (and, ultimately, the Minister of Magic). She is somewhat bossy and snobbish, and tries very hard to be an excellent student.

Other Eras & Jobs: In the Reformation era, Marietta works for the Ministry of Magic in the Department of International Magical Cooperation.

Appearance: Marietta has average-sized light blue eyes. She has reddish blonde hair that comes below her shoulders. Marietta appears as a slim girl of average height for her age. She has somewhat sharp facial features. Marietta has delicate hands with thin fingers and she keeps her nails very well groomed. Marietta has a very good complexion, except for a few soft freckles that appear on her face. Marietta is concerned about presenting a neat, clean appearance. Her clothes and outfits are selected carefully and she hates being seen except to her advantage.

Ethnicity: English Caucasian

Personality: Marietta is a bossy, officious girl. She is self-conscious about what people might think of her and tries to appear as intelligent, elegant, and polite at all times. Marietta also enjoys being right and once she takes a position, it is hard to convince her that she might be mistaken. She has a strong respect for authority and the rules. More than once in her past, she has been accused of being something of a tattletale. However, Marietta can be very charming and considerate. In a group atmosphere, Marietta is more comfortable criticizing and offering choices than in making a final decision.

Backstory: Marietta Edgecombe is the youngest daughter of a family devoted to public service and defined by their loyalty to the Ministry of Magic. Marietta did not have many friends as a child, but was especially close to her sister, Madeleine. Her childhood was largely uneventful.

Marietta’s life changed when Madeleine left for Hogwarts. She now felt the full force of loneliness at home and was forced to socialize more with other children. This early bout of loneliness contributed to Marietta’s loyalty, and sometimes deference, to friends.

Marietta was sorted into House Ravenclaw, along with several of the girls she had met on the train ride to Hogwarts. Her first weeks were a blur of classes, socializing, and acclimating herself to the castle. Devoted to studying and part of a circle of Ravenclaw girls that felt the same way, Marietta had a relatively easy first year.

Marietta’s second year was even more enjoyable than her first. She now had first years to look down upon, in addition to those students in her own class that had received lower marks than herself. The bossy and know-it-all sides of her personality became a bit more developed and she often found herself delivering condescending advice to Ravenclaw first years in the common rooms. Her friends found some of this amusing.

The third year at Hogwarts is traditionally one of the more difficult terms and Marietta noticed the increase in workload immediately. Despite this, she also found herself devoting a bit less time to studies than before. For the first time, Marietta began to be interested in the opposite sex, though mostly she simply enjoyed talking about which boys were intelligent, cute, rude, or boorish. Marietta also became more interested in her appearance in her third year, taking time to straighten her somewhat curly hair, altering how she wore it slightly, and generally becoming just as concerned about what people thought of how she looked as what they thought of her intelligent and hardwork.

Academically, the red haired Edgecombe’s fourth year was much easier than her third. She was a fantastic advanced Charms student. She was also becoming much better at translating theory into actual successful spellcasting. She wasn’t as naturally talented as some of her friends, but she wasn’t displeased with her abilities at all.

Marietta’s fifth year was all about O.W.L.S. Driven to succeed by her family and her own sense of pride, Marietta worked very hard throughout the year, even to the point of ignoring a lot of the Triwizard Tournament The Yule Ball was a pleasant distraction, however, as the redhead enjoyed the attention of being sought after as a date and dancing. She did very well on her O.W.L.S., primarily as a result of hard work and study, and not so much natural talent.

Reformation History: Marietta graduated from Hogwarts the summer before the Fall of the Ministry. She spent most of the year You-Know-Who was in power attempting to find a way to undo the jinx that Hermione Granger inflicted on her as a result of her betrayal of Dumbledore's army. She was only partially successful. She was hired by the reorganized Ministry to serve in the Department of International Magical Cooperation. Although the Ministry has changed, she has remained completely loyal to it as a source of authority. However, she absolutely hates Granger, and isn't all that fond of former members of the D.A., including Harry Potter.

Current Goals: Marietta is very eagerly awaiting the results of her O.W.L.S. Her greatest ambition is to work for the Ministry of Magic, just like her mother.

Hobbies: Marietta enjoys reading, gossip, being outdoors, and being a student at Hogwarts. She also enjoys discussing and commenting on fashion. She likes things that inflate her own sense of self-importance (like being a member of a club or having impressive grades). She likes people who respect the rules (almost as much as she admires people who make them). Although she can be somewhat condescending herself, she prefers people who are polite or well mannered. Marietta also has a bias in favor of people who are good looking and well dressed. Marietta loves chocolate and desserts.

Loyalties: Marietta is incredibly loyal to her mother, sister, and the Ministry of Magic. She can also usually be depended on by members of her house and her friends.

Mental Strengths: She is a hard worker, witty, and studious. She also has an excellent memory and is very good at remembering people's names and their family connections.

Mental Weaknesses: She is not as sharp or brilliant as some other Ravenclaws and it takes study for her to keep up her grades. She also can be superficial and is very quick to judge people. Her ambitions can also cloud her judgment.

Magical Strengths: Marietta is good at Charms.
Magical Weaknesses: She does not enjoy Herbology because she really hates dirt.

Secret They'll Never Tell: Marietta secretly fears she's not as intelligent as other people think, making her a little insecure but also causing her to sometimes express strong opinions to cover up her lack of confidence.
