How I found Vault 713: Referred by a fellow RP buddy
My Previous Roleplaying Experience: I have been an avid Roleplayer for 5+ years on an assortment of different sites
My Favorite Harry Potter Character: Remus Lupin

NAME: Winter O'Donnell
DATE OF BIRTH: 02/24/1965
EMPLOYER: Apothecary for St. Mungo's Hospital

PRIMARY ERA: Reformation

What is the concept for your character?
Winter is a witch who has known many hardships, but always strives to overcome them. She is not one to take 'no' as an answer. Her time at Hogwarts proved to be a critical point in her life of learning that not everyone is the same. She met and entered into a relationship with a young Hufflepuff, and the two of them were inseparable. However, things took a sudden change when she was forced to move back to Ireland, leaving her partner behind. Leaving him a note explaining everything as best as she could, Winter never understood why he never contacted her or tried to find her. She has since tried to move forward with her life, but has never forgotten then magic that was between them, and never lost the hope that one day they might reunite and possibly bring a happy ending to their story begun so long ago.
What other eras will they be active in and what will their job be in each era?
Marauders (Student), Golden Era (Apprentice to Apothecary Services in Assorted Medical Areas )
What does your character look like?
Winter is of slender build, standing at 5'7". She has long red hair that is often worn down or partially down. More often than not, since her returning to Ireland, Winter has taken to fixing her hair to conceal her ears. Due to an accident when she was very young, Winter wears a special device in each ear that allows her to hear like anyone else. At her current age, these devices are a sky blue opalescent color. When not at work and wearing the traditional green uniform of St. Mungo's, Winter wears a comfortable blend of classy by casual, favoring things like slacks and jeans, sweaters and 3/4 sleeve tops, boots and sneakers.
Where can we find your character when their story first begins?
Winter has become quite the pioneer in her field of Apothecary. Wanting to help as many as she can, Winter loves to research and explore possible solutions to all sorts of Magical Miladies that St. Mungo's and other Wizarding hospitals around the world address. One could say that the wizard that created her magical-type hearing aids was a huge influence in her drive to help others as he helped her. Her mind is always focused on her work, some might say she boarders being a workaholic. Since her losing connection with her long time partner when she was fresh out of Hogwarts, Winter never lets his memory stray far from her mind or her heart. While she doesn't allow his absence, whatever the reason for it was, run her life, she does miss him deeply.
Who is someone from your characters past who influenced who they are today?
Winter's long time partner, James, had one of the biggest influences on her life. Before meeting him, Winter was a quiet person that often kept to herself, never allowing anyone to get very close for fear of being rejected for her handicap. Winter had friends, but she never sought out partners in any romantic fashion. She had been on the receiving end of the cruelty that others can have towards those that were different. James, however, changed that by showing her than not everyone was like that. He accepted her for who she was, handicap and all. He helped her to come out of her shell and gain and embrace a new found confidence that no one had ever been able to bring out of her. Without him and without an explanation as to why he seemed to simply abandon her after she was forced to leave, Winter still does what she can to make him proud by staying true to the new confidence and drive that he lit in her. Even if it's only his memory.
What does your character think their strongest and weakest traits are?
Winter is a go-getter with a wisdom to see the bigger picture and multiple outcomes of challenges that come her way and a drive to never give up. Winter can often become too engrossed with her work and shuts herself away from social life. Sometimes it's because she is so close to a breakthrough with something new, or that she is trying to squash the broken feelings she still carries from losing James so long ago.
What is something your character wants but does not have?
Winter wants have a family of her own and a home where she can raise a family. Possibly have a greenhouse and a potions lab to allow her to continue work and experiments away from her place of employment.
What are their current short term and long term goals?
Short Term: Continue her work at St. Mungo's. Long-Term: Write a collection of books holding her research to help future healers in her line of work, and retire in a peaceful place with her family.
What is your character doing now to work toward their goals?
Working and documenting her work at St. Mungo's as well as everything she learned up to this point along the way. Winter is also saving to allow herself to one day find a place where she can live out the rest of her days when her work at the hospital draws to a close.
What is something your character would never tell anyone about themselves?
Winter sometimes holds the Ministry of Magic responsible for the Werewolf attack the destroyed her family, and resulted in her handicap.
What is their strongest childhood memory?
Meeting James and experiencing a first true act of kindness by someone not judging her for anything. She lost her hearing devices in the snow thanks to a cruel joke by other students. James helped her find them, and didn't care one bit that without them, Winter lives in a world of silence. Not everyone is like everyone else.

Welcome to the Wizarding World, Winter!

It's admirable how Winter continues to march on. You might like to begin your story in London Calling, which takes place in London, England, or by using one of the following thread ideas:

★ While developing a potion, you find that a key ingredient combination is patented by some hermit wizard who lives in Bulgaria... how will you handle this?

★ Visit Hogwarts to work with the school's healer to develop a treatment plan for an outbreak of Dragon Pox
