Personality Description (please also include 15 words that describe your character): Upon first meeting Emmy, most people will see a pretty blonde girl who is naïve, surprisingly sweet, and innocent to the cruelties of the world. Her close friends will know that she is not innocent: she has done far too many things. Her family will know that she is not naïve: she has seen far too many things. But it will take an almost impossibly perceptive person to see through the saccharine sweetness that she has perfected throughout her entire life.
Emmy will tolerate no barriers to her success, and she aspires to be the best. She will not hesitate to use her family name, money, innocent looks, or networking skill to do whatever is necessary to achieve her goals. As a result, there is very little that Emmy hasn’t done. Alcohol, sex, drugs, corruption, enticement—all and more have taken at least quick runs through her fifteen years of living. Unfortunately, her strange life has led her to have a strange outlook on herself; she often finds herself impossibly alone, and at times confused about which way to turn. As a natural side effect of constantly posing for one group of people while duplicitously going about behind their backs, she has no idea which part is the part that is ‘truly her’.
Family Background (blood lines, family personality/outlook): Emmy was born to the Wilkes family, a well known and extremely well situated pureblood family that is extremely proud of its heritage. Their unofficial motto is: “If you want something, do what it takes to get it.”
Personal History (exactly that, personal history): She grew up in the Wilkes Manor with a governess as a child, and was taught the basic first and second year potions, wand movements and spells (which, although she could not actually practice without a wand, helped her technique greatly) to prepare her for her year at Hogwarts. Because of this—and only because of this (Emmy is by no means a genius)—she quickly rose to the top of her class. Her parents, who saw the benefit of private tutoring, continued to enroll her in advanced classes over the summer.
As a young child, her parents brought her along with them to parties and galas, exposing her to things that a child would not typically see—both good and bad. As a result, she grew up with a jaded view of the world and a corrupted innocence, typically using a naive cover to shield her shrewdness.
