There is always some madness in love. But there is also always reason in madness.

Ms. Gabrielle Bellatrix Cadeaux. 12 yrs
Gabrielle can be bitterly sarcastic, partly due to her insecurity of leaving her life in France and part to her belief that she has been lowered to the status of the average Howarts-goer. Her dream is to become either a Charms teacher or a Potions teacher. She has a sister whom she dearly abhores named Cecilia Dutchess in Gryffindor House. Her second cousin, Onyx, is also a Gryffindor but not related truly by blood. If Gabrielle ever calls someone darling or dear, think twice about what she's saying. In due time however, Gabrielle does have a soft spot in her heart and will actually be nice. She does not enjoy conflict but it just doesn't bother her too much when dealing with "commoners". Sooner or later she'll find someone who will help change this personality into a nicer one.
Name: Gabrielle Bellatrix Cadeaux
Age and Date of Birth: 13 on May 10th
Wand: 13 1/2 Willow with Leprechaun Hair core
Pets: Dawlish, her owl, and Poltergeist, her cat
Family Background: Gabrielle Cadeaux is the only child of two extremely wealthy French aristocrats, Jean Pierre Cadeaux and Vivienne Jeanne Rishelle. Her father is the CEO of the Magie Ikuinene Societes Corporation, a business that specializes in monitoring the trade of fraudulant magical artifacts. She is part of a pureblood French pedigree that stems from the royal house of Dreux. Her half-sister, born Cecilia Arietta Duchess but now Cecilia Else Duchess, is a Second Year but in the house of Gryffindor. Although both sisters were brought up in the same affluence and society, Cecilia and Gabrielle are the complete antithesis of one another and utterly despise one another. Gabrielle had dreamed of attending the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic ever since she was little, only to have this dream crushed when her parents decided to send her to Britain for a more "rounded" education. She has never been close to her parents, although she allows herself to be molded and shaped by them.
Physical Description: In a spurt of rebelliousness, Gabrielle Cadeaux decided to dye her hair a bright red to hide her French origins or, better yet, further sever the ties between her and the country her parents had brought her up in. It reaches to the small of her back in a mass of curls. Her height is 5 feet 2 inches.
Temperament: Although at first glance cold and uninterested, Gabrielle has an optimistic, and surprisingly childish, core to her personality. Almost everything is a game to her and the people around her, toys. She can read emotions very well and yet still has a hard time sympathizing with others. It is easy to please the others around her but she has a hard time making true friends given that her heart is surrounded by an almost impenetrable wall built by years of betrayal, regret, and her true nature.
Classes Currently Enrolled in: She has decided to take Quidditch and Charms but would prefer to focus on her summer commitments before turning her mind back onto academic matters.
Best Magical Talent: Gabrielle has a penchant for Charms but absolutely loves creating potions. She loves to charm the bone china tea set she received for Christmas into dancing Irish jigs.
Worst Magical Talent: Sadly, Gabrielle is an owner of what some would call a "black thumb". Herbology is one of her worst subjects, and she must exert a tremendous amount of effort to keep up, especially since she is not very interested in the topic to begin with.
Best Non-Magical Talent: She was born with the natural talent of mimicry.
Worst Non-Magical Talent: Gabrielle has almost no sense of direction and will quickly become lost in almost any situation.
Special Possessions: Her most special possession is a sapphire tear-shaped pendant given to her by a special childhood crush of hers, more than 5 years her senior, before he left to search for adventure in the Americas. She guards this memento on a charm bracelet on her left wrist.
Greatest Fear: Failure to meet expectations, whether her own or others
Future goals: She would like to complete her education with the highest marks possible in order to achieve her goal of becoming a Charms professor. Her mother and father greatly disapprove of her ambitions, preferring that she marry quickly to a suitor of their choice.
In reality, I'm not as...stuck up shall we say as Gabrielle nor am I the least bit as mean. I love talking to new people. Others describe me as a Japanese fangirl, a pixie, weird etc. I can be so hyper at times, especially when I'm extremely tired. I enjoy drinking coffee at any time of the day and when asked to do something, will probably do it. At times I can seem overexcited about things and try to do too much but most of the time I do it out of my own goodwill
