Image


Image


{ HEIGHT }
Much to her dismay, Minah stands at a rather unimposing 1.58m, which is about 5'2" in customary units. She is often looked down upon, literally, by her classmates. Minah has been known to offset this by, when not in uniform, wearing heels.

{ SCARS, TATTOOS, BIRTHMARKS & PIERCINGS }
When Minah was young, she had a habit of wandering into places she wasn't meant to go. This involved climbing lots of metal fences- on one occasion, she fell from one such metal fence and landed on a rather rocky ground. This left a medium-sized scar on the left side of her torso, a few inches above her hip, from a large rock that she fell straight on. It hurt quite a lot at the time, but is faded now. Minah has no tattoos of any sorts, though she does have the habit of drawing on her hand, creating little patterns that mimic metal joints or colorful feathers. Both of her ears are pieced, but only once. She doesn't wear earrings often, but keeps track of the holes to ensure they don't close up.

{ ASPIRATIONS }
To Graduate - Taking one thing at a time, Minah's current goal is simply to graduate from Hogwarts without any major obstacles or problems. Of course, when she says graduate, she's implying doing so with high marks on all of her NEWT exams next year.

Teaching - While she doesn't know exactly which subject she wants to teach, Minah knows for certain that she wants to continue to contribute to Hogwarts after she has graduated. Her best subjects are Transfiguration and Potions, so it is possible that she will try to become the professor in one of those subjects- after more experience with them in the Wizarding World, of course. She doesn't intend to try and displace the current Transfiguration teacher, after all.

{ FEARS }
Being Discovered - This is not a fear that comes up much at Hogwarts, but Minah is terrified of what might happen should her muggle friends [whom she grew up with pre-Hogwarts] will start asking more questions about the boarding school she attends, or will find her trunk and start investigating. She's terrified of accidentally revealing herself to a muggle, even though the Ministry would likely take care of it immediately. She's frightened of how her friends might look at her, if they thought her something strange.

Dragons - Plenty of people adore dragons- many spend their lives dealing with the creatures. Minah could never be one of those people. A person couldn't pay her enough to get near one- the girl is often the sort to enjoy new experiences, but hanging out with the fire-breathing beasts is certainly not on her bucket list.

Being Forbidden to Use Magic - Minah is not one who will be found using magic during vacations, that much is certain- being forbidden to use her magic is perhaps the worst thing she can imagine happening. After being introduced to it all, and living at Hogwarts, she doesn't think she could go back to her old muggle life.

Image{ PERSONALITY }
{Clever, Willing, Sarcastic, Extroverted}
There is a reason for Minah's placement in Ravenclaw, after all- the sorting hat didn't simply spout a random name when sat upon her head on that first night at Hogwarts. While some may accuse her of coming across as less than what she is, the young woman is in fact rather clever. She has a mind for alternative pathways, especially. Certainly, she does well enough in academics and following the guidelines that have set for her, but she shines most when given the opportunity to branch off from the given strategy and create her own way. Perhaps this is more creativity than cleverness, but the two certainly overlap quite frequently. Trick questions are one of her specialties, because of this: when the answer seems obvious, but in fact is someone one might have never considered, she is often among the first to solve the puzzle. Putting together strings that don't immediately appear to work together at all is the way her mind works. To put this all into fewer words, Minah's mind works in patterns- she sees the way things alter and change, and how they remain the same, and can analyze that. It's why she's good at mysteries and the like, but can often mess up the simplest of problems. Perhaps her mind works in this way because she is willing to try out new methods when the old ones are beginning to falter. The young woman has never been afraid to consider new possibilities and try new things, instead being the sort of person who is up for what life presents her. If an opportunity presents itself, she isn't one to turn it down. In that sense, she likely might find herself wrapped up in shady business that started out as 'something new and refreshing' and wound up being completely out of her comfort zone. Her desire is to expand her comfort zone, though- living her entire childhood believing that everything had clear parameters, only to be thrown into the wonderful chaos of magic, she's terrified of letting herself be confined once more to imaginary barriers. Fear makes her more open, strange as that may seem. Of course, openness does not equate sincerity, not always. One of her primary forms of self expression, after all, is sarcasm- something inherited from her mother. She isn't the type to tell someone she dislikes them to her face, but instead will make sarcastic remarks until the person [hopefully] gets the hint. She calls it tact- others label it as passive aggression. It is in the eye of the beholder, really. Regardless of her sarcasm, she remains a person who enjoys being around other people. An extrovert, she feels at home in a group of people, and firmly believes that more is merrier [so long as the 'more' aren't annoying]. She doesn't require others to come to her in order to begin a friendship or a simple conversation- she is more than willing to be the first to approach. Otherwise, she fears that someone else would set the pace of her life.


Image


{ MOTHER }
Image
Minah's mother, Park Young-Soo, was born in South Korea, but attended university in England for a studying abroad program. This is when she met Minah's father. Young-Soo. Her mother is not quite as easygoing as her father, but is far more organized and likely to get things done both in the home and the workplace. Young-Soo is the driving force in her children's education, and makes a point of having Minah take summer classes so that she does not fall behind in muggle subjects. Her mother works as a Korean Language Professor, and occasional translator.

{ FATHER }
Image
Minah's father, Roger Chase, was born in Seoul, South Korea to a British father and a Korean mother. He moved to England when he was twelve years old. As far as father's go, Minah's certain she has a good one- Mr. Chase is good-humored and typically open-minded. He finds the Wizarding World rather fascinating. Mr. Chase works as a lawyer for a firm that specializes in mediation.

{ SIBLINGS }
Image
Minah's only sibling is her younger brother, Kwang-Ho [Goes by Kevin]. The two of them were very close before she went off to Hogwarts, and while they still get along well, the bond has strained somewhat. Kwang-Ho puts a lot of focus on academics, perhaps because his mother's energies are focused primarily on him during the school year, but has been known to sneak out of the house on weekends to go to parties.

{ FRIENDS }

Image
Cara Hayes || Sixth Year || Gryffindor || Known Since First Year
Cara and Minah were partners for the first Potions assignment that they ever had at Hogwarts, and have been thick as thieves ever since. Both of them sharing gluttonous appetites, a love for Quidditch, and the tendency to lose track of time, they connected quite easily. Cara is one of Minah's closest friends, if not her closest friend.

Image
Malina Anderson || Sixth Year || Ravenclaw || Known Since Second Year
Both sixth year Ravenclaws, it's only natural that Malina and Minah should know each other. Malina isn't as extroverted as Minah, certainly, but the two get along all the same, often studying together or simply hanging out. Minah doesn't mind Malina's occasional awkwardness much, so long as Malina doesn't mind Minah stealing her candy in an effort to 'help her with her healthy diet.'

{ HISTORY }
Unlike many of her classmates, Minah cannot recount exposure to the wizarding world through her family, or explain how her parents and other elder relatives took part in the Wizarding War. Of course, she also does not have the live in the shadow of parents who are seen as heroes- her heritage gives her a completely blank slate in the way of Magic. This is because Minah, born in a small flat in London, England, is muggleborn. While the powers of good and evil waged war in the Wizarding world, her parents went about their regular business, whether that was in England or in South Korea. When Minah was born, she was expected to be intelligent, like her parents, and to be successful, but beyond that, no one expected something out of the ordinary for her. Her family was upper middle class, with her father being a respected attorney and her mother a Korean professor and translator. Both parents worked, so she was often babysat by her neighbors or friends of the family. Growing up, a lot of emphasis was put on education, and Minah rose to the challenge. Of course, as a child she did have the habit of wandering off, often resulting in scraped knees and bruises. She loved to be up high, whether that mean in a tall building or climbing a tree. And the first sign that she was more than just a muggle came when she was falling from a tree, and seemed to stop just before impact, as though cushioned by something. Only her father saw this, and he convinced himself that it was his imagination.

After all, nothing like that had happened with her before, nor had it taken place with her brother. But such occasions repeated themselves, and eventually her parents were concerned and confused. They seemed to know that this was not something to be explained by a doctor, and it remained a family secret. Loving parents, they tried to protect their daughter from whatever it was that was going on- only confusing both of their children. It was almost a relief when a representative from the ministry of magic arrived and informed them that their child was, in fact, a witch. It might have been more difficult to digest had they not seen the signs, but this simply offered an explanation that seemed to make sense. Her parents, along with she and her brother, worked to learn as much as they could about the Wizarding world. Minah began to learn to hide any little magical outbursts she might have, and with this practice they became less frequent. By the time her letter for Hogwarts arrived, she felt as though her entire life had been spent waiting for it. And it was not unjustified. Hogwarts fit the girl like a glove, though at first she was confused by chatter about newspapers she'd never heard of and sports that she couldn't have followed. Soon, it was home that seemed strange- mundane, in comparison. Her mother, realizing the subjects taught at Hogwarts were not the typical curriculum, had the girl take muggle classes over the summer. These things challenged her to some extent, but could not rival the thrill of magic. She drifted from her parents, who could never do enough research to understand the world their daughter was now a part of.

September First - Arriving at Hogwarts - Start of Term
Cloudy (overcast) - Medium temperature - Rain in the evening - Gusty


ImageImage
The sky hung heavy over the castle, bearing down upon it and closing it off from the outside world. The clouds were only just beginning to open up as the carriages picked their way across the grounds of Hogwarts, and something about the air pressure this year was different. Lee Jordan recognized the feeling here from long ago, this was a kind of hush he hadn't felt in his bones for more than two decades. Still, most of the students seemed unaffected by the feeling of dread in the Headmaster's gut, so he dismissed it.
There had been no problems with the train, nor any with the carriages, and under the lake the squid slowly stirred, rising a single eye to look up at the dark wool clouds and decide that it was best to stay underwater. Somewhere a thestral screeched and a hippogriff near Hagrid's old shack returned the call.
As the first carriage reached the castle and the students began to pile out, a beam of lightning arced across the sky, crackling in a semicircle across the far southern horizon. The headmaster turned from his window as an owl crossed it, and returned to his preparations for the feast.
By the time the sorting began everything was normal; the feeling had died down in Lee Jordan's gut, and he was able to sit comfortably before his students, slowly filing in and sitting at their house's table. He smiled. He'd convinced himself; this would simply be another year. Perhaps even the kind of year Hogwarts used to see; brave and exciting and full.

ALBUS SEVERUS POTTER
Great Hall - ~200 words - Open/Not interacting
Albus never had an easy time with the beginning of term feast, or with any of them,
really. He didn't like the crowds, nor the noise, and they were usually so much more
intense than dinner or the classes taught in the Great Hall. It didn't help that the room
itself echoed so ominously or that the new first years always clamored and chattered
away until their nerves died down. It wasn't necessarily that he hadn't done the same,
and Albus didn't blame them for it, but entering the great hall still hit him with a sense
of fear and anxiety that he couldn't quite explain and that he didn't want any part in.
It was all he could do not to turn tail and run right that second, back to the Slytherin
dorm so he could find his things and disappear into his bed and maybe find Scorpius.
Scorpius! Right, that might make things better, having a friend around. He gave the
tables a cursory glance, quick and uncertain, before skittering to the very corner at the
very end of the Slytherin table and then taking the seat one to the center of the table
from it. The snake in his breast pocket stirred quietly before poking her nose out and
letting her tongue flap and rattle through the air. Albus gently pressed her nose back
down into his pocket and looked around nervously, trying to spot someone he knew.


Image
LOUIS WILLIAM WEASLEY
Great Hall - ~200 words - Open/Not interacting
Louis was being stubborn. Slightly more stubborn than usual, but this book he'd picked
up for the train was incredibly good and he just couldn't exactly bring himself to drag
his attention away from it for long enough not to trip and fall on his face (and the book
he'd been holding in front of it from the moment he sat down on the train right through
until he'd attempted to get off the carriage). Standing up and grumbling curses to himself,
Louis retrieved his book from the mud and glared up at the sky as it started to drizzle.
He flicked some mud from the dustjacket of his book and started the short trek into the
Great Hall. He didn't appreciate the naming nor the huge array and amount of people in
the room, but Louis also elected not to care at the moment. He found a seat near the
center of the Gryffindor table and set himself down with a grunt before opening the book
again over his plate and cursing when he realized he'd gotten mud on his plate. Frustrated,
he closed the book and glared around the room, shooting the first years a cocked eyebrow
and a look of slight distrust. One of them shuddered and Louis couldn't help but laugh a little
to himself before looking around at the rest of the Gryffindors and saying a few quiet hellos.

Character Portrait: Minah Chase

Image
{Great Hall, Open}


To say that Minah was happy to be back at Hogwarts for the new school term would be something of an understatement. Even with summer classes to occupy her mind and time, the young woman had often found her mind wandering back to the place that had become a second home to her. Her family had not failed to notice this, or the fact that their daughter seemed to be drifting further away from them with each passing school year, pulled away by a world of fantastic things they had not thought possible before strange things had begun to happen around Minah in her childhood. Perhaps this is normal for the children of muggleborns, this distance created between child and family, or perhaps it is simply Minah's desire to surround herself with this magical community that pulls her gradually further away. Right now, thoughts of such things are quite far from the mind of the Ravenclaw girl.

Rather, her current thoughts are split between two topics: A) the food that will be served at this year's feast, and B) trying to locate one of her friends. Malina hasn't arrived at the Ravenclaw table yet, it seems, and Cara is also out of sight --most likely, she is among her fellow Gryffindors. Somewhat disappointed, Minah returns to the Ravenclaw table. Half of the students there are engaged in conversation, and the other half seem to be trying to start their studies a bit early, with various books finding homes on the long wooden table. Minah cannot help but smile, at least a little, at this familiar sight. It feels like home- warm and inviting.

Not having a book on her [and not finding the Great Hall to be a suitable place for reading at the moment], Minah joins a conversation between two fellow sixth year Ravenclaws, Robert Salmon and Cynthia Perringer. They had invited her to sit in their compartment in the train on the trip here, and having not found Cara, the girl had agreed. Their current conversation is a continuation of that which had begun in the compartment, talking about classes and the books they had needed to purchase for class this year and whatnot. This would be their first year taking NEWT courses, and many of the Ravenclaw students were looking forward to the challenges of these advanced classes. Robert and Cynthia can easily be counted amongst these students.

Minah contributes to the conversation enough to still be considered part of it, but as she does so her eyes occasionally scan the Great Hall for specific faces. When Robert and Cynthia begin speaking about the NEWT level Muggle Studies class they are taking, Minah begins to mentally check out of the conversation more thoroughly. Nothing could possibly bore her more than a class that only talks about things that she already knows. Occasionally they ask her questions about muggles, well-intended but still very dull, and Minah will respond politely, but it would prove difficult to re-engage her in this conversation.

A start of a new school year meant new memories and new friends to Cara. The young witch sat at the end of the Gryffindor table conversing with some of her fellow gryffindors about last years quidditch cup and how awesome her brother Leon did. Cara wasn't as lively tonight as usual, most of it because she hadn't gotten nearly any sleep last night due to the fact that she stayed up half the night star gazing. The witch was half into the conversation and half dozing off but she couldn't help it, all they talked about was her brother and how good and awesome he is. Cara saw him almost everyday when she was at home so she really doesn't want to talk about him in school. This morning she almost missed the train for waking up late and to top it off she couldn't find Minah in the crowded train to save her life so she just took an empty cart and ended up falling asleep the whole way here.

Cara let out deep sigh as she ruffled her hair in frustration. She couldn't concentrate on the conversation that was held in front of her because she didn't find it interesting and her focus was affected by her lack of sleep. Inside her head she was wondering about all her classes this year and how excited she was for her advanced potions class she chose but soon her mind just couldn't think anymore. Cara rested her head on her right hand, her eyes growing heavy. Come on Cara, stay awake. she said in her head in slight frustration. Lifting her head up from her hand she noticed a familiar face in the next table over. It was Minah but she was talking with some of her fellow housemates. Cara still made the effort to get her attention by waving her hand in the air towards her.

As is only natural, for him at least, Fred had been in a compartment packed to full capacity on the trip here, with three people in each bench. Occasionally, another person would stop by and join in on the fun that was inevitable in the compartment, squeezing in and crowding the place a bit. For his part, Fred never minded- he revels in the presence of others and the liveliness of conversation and jokes with good friends. Besides, more people meant it was easier to give away the snacks his mum had packed him for the trip. It wasn't that his mom hadn't given him good stuff --it was sort of reminiscent of a lunchbox-- but that he isn't really one to eat lunch. He never has been- the young man typically eats medium sized breakfasts, skips lunch, and has a small dinner. Despite the fact that every moment seems to be filled with animated gestures and actions, he runs on relatively little fuel. He once jokingly told someone that he feeds off of atmosphere, and doesn't need something so common as physical sustenance. It was a typical sort of Fred thing to be said, really.

His spirited attitude persisted as the students changed into their robes and were dropped off at Hogwarts, to be taken in the carriages up to the main castle. While others may cringe at the deafening roar that the Great Hall contains, he contributes to it, telling jokes and greeting friends as he walks by. By seventh year, its only natural that one should have friends in each of the houses. This includes Slytherin, despite the old rivalry between Gryffindor and the ambitious house. Seeing one friend, who has been called Beaks for so long that no one can actually recall where he got the nickname in the first place, as his nose is rather run-of-the-mill, Fred walks up to him with a grin.

"Hey, man. How was New York?" he asks, knowing his friend's family had visited the family across the pond over the summer. Beaks talks about some show or another that his mom made him go to [but that Fred thinks sounds pretty interesting], and about other such things. He cracks a joke towards the end that gets Fred laughing for a good couple of minutes- a reason for why Beaks and Fred get along so well. That, and Beaks has let Fred copy his homework on more than one occasion, making him golden as far as Fred's concerned.

Spotting his cousin across the way, at the Gryffindor table, Fred bids the Hufflepuff ado and makes his way through throngs of reunions and chatting, only to end up at the table of his own house. He manages to catch the corner of one of Louis's killing looks, and raises an eyebrow at that. Taking the long way around, Fred sneaks up behind Louis as quietly as he can manage, before suddenly putting his hands on the boy's shoulders. "Keep scowling like that, and it'll stick that way. That's what happened to Filch," he cautioned Louis, referring to the Hogwarts' caretaker, whom students are expecting to suddenly drop dead someday, given how ancient he is by now. There have been petitions signed to encourage his retirement- all of them were denied. He's a permanent fixture of the school, at this point. Fred is quite certain that Filch will come back and still be the caretaker once he's died, as a ghost.

Minah is quite happy when she sees Cara waving at her to catch her eye, and is none too apologetic in excusing herself from the conversation between Cynthia and Robert. The two had started leaning in slightly while speaking, despite the fact that they were standing, and she had begun to worry that they would start snogging right in front of her. It's very concerning stuff, really, and what with all of the first years about and whatnot. If it does start happening, Minah will have to be the one to break them up --which is why she is more than happy to distance herself from the looming threat.

Besides, she had been looking for Cara in the first place. "Cara! How've you been?"
she says cheerily, only just then realizing that the Gryffindor girl is technically in the middle of a conversation with a couple of other students. She smiles at them, tongue sort of sticking out between her teeth, which is just a little sort of habit she has.

"Ah, sorry for the interruption," this is what she says, but based on the fact that she doesn't move away, and is still smiling quite amicably, she isn't planning on exiting the area. This throws doubt about the sincerity of her apology, but she doesn't seem overly concerned. She might've been, if she'd at least known the names of the people before her. The girl is social, but quite atrocious with names and faces, easily being someone's best friend for the length of a party, and completely forgetting their face the next day.

Cara's eyes lit up once she saw that Minah had saw her overly display of attention and was heading her way. "Cara! How've you been?" was the first thing she said as she sat down beside her. Cara was too overly joyed to say anything for a minute so she watched as Minah apologized to the Gryffindors across the table from her. Cara looked over at them with a stutter present. " H-hey guys, um we'll finish this later yeah?"

Her two housemates got up with wicked smiles on their faces as they respond with a " Oh sure, We'll leave you two to catch up." Cara instantly knew what they meant by that and her face flushed as she stood up from her seat to shout at them but not menacing more in a embarassed and playful way. " I-It's not like that you twits!" Once she calmed down she sat back down next to Minah with a big goofy smile plastered on her face. All of her previous tiredness now gone and replaced by the company of her best friend.

" I've been better! " Cara answered with a smile. " How about you? How has it been going on your side?"

{Great Hall, Interacting w/ Cara Hayes}

Minah gives her friend a puzzled sort of look when she sits back down next to her. It isn't the goofy smile that has led to this bemusement, for that is a stable of her dear friend's expressions, but rather the fact that she had called her friends twits before sitting back down beside Minah. Of course, it very well may have been jokingly --that had been all she'd caught out of the brief exchange Cara had with the other two before joining Minah. She doesn't dwell on it, perhaps because sit doesn't seem to necessitate dwelling, and instead flashes a grinning response to Cara's smile.

"I'm grand, of course --always happy to come back home. Or, err, back to my second home, I suppose?" She dismisses her own words with a shrug, instead focusing more on her friend's comment on the fact that 'she's been better'.

"Tired from the train ride? You know, you aren't obligated to talk to the people in your carriage if you're tired --last year, I slept the whole ride, remember?"
This is a slight exaggeration, as she had stayed awake long enough to pull in an excessive amount of snacks from the snack trolley, and Cara will know this, as they rode together in the same compartment last year. Minah's a bit disappointed that they hadn't found each other this year, actually. It was probably because she had just barely arrived on time to make the train, being as punctual as usual.

On this year's train, she had eaten an equally large amount of snacks. And yet, the girl is already beginning to feel hungry, and is less than subtle about eying some of the food hungrily. She loves it when they have feasts. Halloween is the best, of course --the sweets are all impossibly delicious. Minah had already been a big eater before, but starting at Hogwarts had only made her more of a glutton. Every meal here would have needed a special occasion to be merited in the Chase household. She does occasionally miss her mother's Korean dishes while here, though --everything served at Hogwarts is strictly Western-Wizarding style.

In full honesty, no one had particularly caught James' eye, excluding Minah, but he had no wish to see her after the end of last year. The Potter boy had no desire to be coaxed out of his comfort zone any further than he had decided. He sat down briefly at the Gryffindor table, sending a few grins in the direction of a pretty Gryffindor girl, only to stand promptly, showing off his incapability to sit still for very long. Visibly fidgeting, he let his gaze wander across the crowd of people once more, avoiding the view of the food that would surely make him sick.

How absolutely lovely. James had caught sight of his red-headed, younger sister, Lily Luna. It had been several hours since he'd seen her, but he couldn't help himself, he'd simply have to get his early year teasing in A.S.A.P! The head boy was stopped on his way with a quick a tug around the arm. "Mr. Potter!" Exclaimed one of the faculty teachers. "Have you no shame?"

James was quickly piecing together his guard, which had been abruptly captured. Swallowing, he turned to face the professor. "I'm sorry sir, I've left it at home for yet another year. Very clumsy of me, my bad." A cheesy smile thickly coated his face.

"You had better step up your act, Potter! Don't think I didn't spot you sticking that vulgar note on the back of the Ravenclaw prefect." The professor sputtered in his heavy scottish accent. "You may be in that place for your name, but you are kept for your attitude! I suggest-- you watch yourself." The conversation ended as it had started, with a hiss and chagrin.
