Hi, my name is Treemouse and I'm the ghost of a long-dead first year student.
Because of my famous muggle parentage (mum and dad were members of the Royal Shakespeare Company) I was one of the first students who died pretty horribly when the Chamber of Secrets was opened many years ago. That's a story for another day; I wouldn't want to share the gruesome details with anyone I didn't know well. Suffice to say that the experience drove me to hide away in a chest in one of the school's attics for over 30 years!
I'm very excited to have been sorted quickly into Gryffindor house although, as a ghost, the sorting hat had to be held above my head!
Im looking forward to herbology and history of magic, however my many years out of education is making me feel a little bit anxious too!
I'm happy to be a bit of a nerd but I really didn't think I'd be brave enough to be resorted into Gryffindor again. That sorting hat must have remembered me as the carefree first year student I was first time around! Still, I do like to think that I can be a brave friend.
My ambition has always been to work as a teacher here at Hogwarts. Although I love the place, there are so many things I would like to change. I'd start by dealing with the serious bullying we see on an almost daily basis!
At the moment my best friend is a short-haired tabby called Maximilian.
