Hi. I'm Kina. A RAVENCLAW, thank you very much. I was just really silly when I picked my house so please refer to me as a RAVENCLAW.
- Joined April 2020
- Member of Gryffindor
- 214 House Points
- 1st Year
- United States
I was born in England, but my family moved to America eight years ago. I've grown up with the knowledge that when I turned eleven, we'd move back to our roots in England. I wasn't all that happy about it, but when I saw the castle, all my doubts vanished. This was where I wanted to be, and there was absolutely no way I wanted to leave.
Name: Kina Cathryne Landers
House: Totally Ravenclaw!!! (The Sorting Hat had to actually stop and think for a minute because I was thinking so fast!)
Appearance: Tall and skinny (clothes never quite fit me, they're always a bit baggy), blue eyes and tangled brown hair (I have to use magic to get it fixed up, hairbrushes never really help), really freckled
Personality: Outgoing, protective, enthusiastic, bookish, stubborn
Family: Mom and Dad, Grandma Nani
Job Interest: Healer
Wand: Cypress and Dragon Heartstring, 14 inches
Cypress wands are associated with nobility. The great medieval wandmaker, Geraint Ollivander, wrote that he was always honoured to match a cypress wand, for he knew he was meeting a witch or wizard who would die a heroic death. Fortunately, in these less blood-thirsty times, the possessors of cypress wands are rarely called upon to lay down their lives, though doubtless many of them would do so if required. Wands of cypress find their soul mates among the brave, the bold and the self-sacrificing: those who are unafraid to confront the shadows in their own and others’ natures.
The wands made from this core are typically the ones with the most power. They are capable of the flashiest spells and can be the most temperamental. These wands tend to bond strongly with their current owner but can also change allegiance if won from the original holder. Dragon Heartstring wands are also the easiest to turn to the dark arts and are prone to accidents.
And yes, I copied those.
Animagus: I'm not one, so should I have put this on here?
Patronus: A german shepherd
The german shepherd is, by nature, a rescuer. They tend to seek out people in need of aid, and they gravitate toward them, having what you could call a hero complex. They are somewhat stoic in their own emotional nature, because they are much more interested in the needs of others rather than their own. Thoughts of materialistic objects and over dramatic ideals are trivial to them, because they are very simple and basic in their needs, and comfortable that way. The most common house for a german shepherd patronus is Ravenclaw. (That's copied too...)
Boggart: Dead friends or family
Quidditch Team: Holyhead Harpies, Tutshead Tornadoes
Quidditch Position: Chaser
Favorite Subject: Care of Magical Creatures
Least Favorite Subject: Tranfiguration (ever since I saw Professer Mitchell turn a rat into a dinner plate), also Potions, because I have a 'particular proclivity for pyrotechnics'
Pets: I have a bobcat named Fern because she once destroyed my copy of Charlotte's Web, and and an owl named Rowena after my magical hero
Favorite characters: Luna, Dumbledore, Newt Scamander, Hermione, Fred, George, Ginny, Mcgonagall, Sprout, Pomfrey
