3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don’t have any, is there a reason?
Emmeline has an endless amount of scars upon her body since she grew up with an older brother around, she always figured it was okay to play rough. Emm was always getting cut up on her knees and elbows, much to the displeasure of her mother. Emm also has a fair amount of scars due to her passionate love for quidditch, which can turn out to be quite brutal during a serious match. A peculiar scar that Emmeline posses actually happens to be on the inside of her bottom lip. Emmeline had fallen off of her broom at the young age of seven, and busted her lip really badly. It had actually split open, resulting it to heal into a thing white line that can still be visible if she pouts her lip out far enough.
2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?
Emmeline’s most prominent physical features would most likely be her eyes and her near midget like height. Emmeline’s eyes are a peculiar shade of green that she inherited from her French mother, Florette. Emmeline’s older brother, Oliver, also acquired this eye color from his mother. This trait that Oliver and Emmeline share is what makes their relationship as siblings nearly obvious, aside from their huge eyebrows, of course. Emmeline’s height is a mysterious, for nearly everyone in Emmeline’s family is average height, if not more. Emmeline’s father and brother are a solid 1.8 meters, and her mother 1.65 meters. Unfortunately for Emm, she stands at a feeble 1.52 meters in height, making a dramatic difference in comparison to her family. This is also why nearly everyone at school and at home affectionately calls Emm a hobbit.
1.) Describe your character’s relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?
The relationship between Emmeline and her parents was a very loving one, and naturally being a family of wealth and prestige, Emmeline and her older brother virtually were granted anything their hearts desired. However, her parents were two very different individuals in their personalities, and they way that they treated their children. Maxwell Arthur Vance dotted upon the needs and wants of his children, letting them get away with virtually everything. He was a polished man, who spoken in a clear and soft voice, never raising his voice at his children. He’s proven himself to be quite rebellious, a trait he later passed onto his daughter. Maxwell enjoys spending large sums of money on his daughter and wife, but never on himself. He’s a bit harsher on his son, Oliver, than he is on his daughter. Emmeline’s mother, Florette Celestine Vance (née Chevalier) prefers a stricter approach on her children. She speaks to her children in French nearly all the time, and trains them on proper etiquette though they dread it. Florette believes that when her children misbehave there should be consequences. Due to this, Emmeline and Florette have a bit of a rocky relationship, no thanks to her constant need to act out. Oliver is the more well-behaved of the two, deeming him and his mother closer than Emmeline and Florette. Overall, both Maxwell and Florette are good and loving people, who yearn for nothing more than sheer success and happiness for their children.
