Appearance: Nicolette is a thin tall girl, standing 5’6″ and weighing just enough to give her the barest indication of a female figure. Her long wavy black hair is always pinned up to keep it tidy and out of her way. Her eyes are gray and her skin is very pale.

He is as cruel as she is cold thought he has a violently protective streak over his “baby sister”.

Pets: A male Russian Hamster named Casimir. When he is not out playing he is always snuggled in her pocket and is rather friendly, despite his owner, and is often making friends to Nicolette’s dismay.

Personality/History: Nicolette is a very intelligent girl but what she has in intelligence, she lacks in interpersonal skills. As a member of a vehemently pure blood family, she has a level of bigorty that is like that of Slytherins though that is getting chipped away by her interactions away from her family. She is very haughty and is rarely seen participating in childish endeavors with the exception of wizard’s chess which she takes pleasure in stomping other students in. Though when she is dealing with animals, her demeanor softens and becomes almost gentle.

Notable Strengths/Weaknesses: Nicolette is exceptionally good at Care of Magical Creatures, Charms and History of Magic. She is also very good at Transfiguration and seems to idolize McGonagall. She does well in all classes but has the most difficulty in Astronomy and Herbology. She also detests Quiddich.

Patronus: Black swan
