Velinea Anastasia Nite grew up as a Muggle. She had always dreamed of having magic, but knew the odds were not in her favor. She grew up in the United States, but her father was relocated for work three months after her tenth birthday. A few days later, she was in London - somewhere she had dreamed of going one day.
Yet a few more months went by with her adjusting to her new life and making friends, when there was a knock at the door. A strange man in a black robe, holding a very official-looking letter.
He explained to her and her parents about Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Velinea jumped at the chance to get to Diagon Alley as soon as possible.
She showed up half an hour early to Platform 9 3/4, more excited than she had ever been before. Her books were stacked neatly in her trunk, with a few ear-marked pages - because she had already read through them all, of course.
The first person she ran across in the train was a boy named Hugo. They quickly became best friends after realizing their shared love of certain books, and how similar they were.
Velinea and Hugo were both sorted into Ravenclaw upon reaching the school. The hat took about a minute to sort Velinea, finally deciding against Slytherin.
She quickly found her favorite subjects were Astronomy and History of Magic. Her marks were good in all her courses, although she was especially proud of the 100 she received in Potions, in addition to the Os from every class.
Second Year flew by for Velinea. She enrolled in all of the courses, although she eventually decided she needed to drop Alchemy. It just couldn’t get her attention, and it freed up her schedule a little more. Others asked what her favorite elective was, but she couldn’t answer them - they were all amazing!
By Third Year, she was excited to finally visit Hogsmeade. Furthermore, she decided to try out for the Ravenclaw Quidditch team. “Maybe it’s time to get my head out of a book for once,” she thought. A few weeks after tryouts, she discovered she had been selected as a Beater - exactly what she had tried out for.
Near the middle of her first year, Velinea applied to be a PA for the first time. By the time finals had finished, she received word that her application had been accepted, and she proudly became a Professor’s Assistant for Astronomy. By mid-Second Year, the previous Head Student had stepped down and Velinea was promoted. She enjoys grading for one of her favorite courses, and plans to be doing it for a long time.
