INFORMATION & SETTING
Rappaport's law strictly forbids any fraternization with non magical folk. Witches and Wizards have long been forbidden from any intermingling; no friendship, certainly no romance. Support for a repeal grows, though, and many fear North America's magical line dying out without fresh bloodlines. Mysterious disappearances tied to witch hunters have occurred throughout the magical community, however. So, which fear will win out? The fear of being wiped out or the fear of fading away?

Pepper Orion



PEPPER MOLLY ORION

PUCKWUDGIE
5TH YEAR
JULY 4, 1948
SIXTEEN
PORTLAND, OREGON
HALEY LU RICHARDSON
Appearance
Maybe she would have been scarier if she didn't fit into everyone's front pocket. But, standing at 4'9 and having everyone able to wrap their arms around you twice didn't have the intimidation factor that she had been looking for. Pepper has a pretty five year old smile, or at least, that's what you would tell her if you saw it. Everything about her was tiny, and if her parents weren't there to confirm, you'd have thought that she actually was a small child with no business at Ilvermorny.

Her hair drops into ringlets right to the small of her back, and has permanently bleached highlights from spending far too much time in the sun while she was young. Her cheeks have a permanent tint of rosy red, but mostly because she's always blushing at what someone or another said. Most would say she's a pretty girl, but she would never agree. She has very large front teeth and a snorting laugh that makes her parents cringe when they hear it. Her round face adorns two unique hazel eyes with flecks of brown surrounding the pupil. Her mother has the exact same eyes and named her accordingly, hoping she would have the same. It was luck, I guess, that they were quite right.

Personality
She is a whirlwind of energy. Pepper prides herself on her ability to light up a room, no matter who occupies it. She is quite selfish that way. She knows her affect on people and uses that to her advantage. Not to say that she uses people, because honestly, she is the most friendly, open and trustworthy person there is. She has a open door policy, and those wanting to talk to her have every invitation too. There is hardly enough room for hatred in her heart, and so she depends on her friends to help her see clearly when she is gone a bit over the edge, or when it's obvious to everyone but her that she's overstayed her welcome. Some would say that Pepper is naïve, and that would be entirely accurate. Why not see the best in everything and everyone?
History

Wand: Apple, White River Monster Spine, 9'1/2 inches, Flexible

When Pepper lived with her mom and dad, it was a very simple, kind life. Her parents were soft people, minding their own business and keeping to themselves. It was a miracle they had been blessed with someone like Pepper. From the moment she was born, her mother knew she would be a spice. Something about the way she came out screaming, they knew. They lived in a small house, nothing spectacular, made mediocre money and had nothing of interest to deliver. With their daughter around, there life was definitely made a little more interesting.

When in Portland, Pepper was a firecracker. She lived with adventure. She was as straight laced as they came, but that didn't stop her from getting into trouble unintentionally. It had gotten worse once she had started showing signs of magic. It was lucky her parents were oblivious. The trouble magic had caused her was just because that was who Pepper was, they thought. They had no idea what was underneath. Even she was dumbfounded. Special, she thought she was. She had even thought about how her positive willfulness was the source of the wonderful things she could do. It wasn't until a large man in a dark blue suit had knocked on her door that everything changed.

He had an obvious air of authority, and for a split second Pepper thought she might have gotten in trouble for something or another. Her parents must of thought so too, because Mr. Orion casted her a questioning stare before answering the door. I'll spare you the mundane details. In Pepper's entire life, she had finally had her answer. She wasn't special at all, well, she was, but not like she had thought. Turns out there were dozens like her, hiding about. The gentleman stated he was from a magical government that called themselves MACUSA, and that he was hand delivering an acceptance letter. When someone came knocking, trying to convince you that magic was real and that they needed to send your child off to a make believe school to learn magic and then eventually cut ties with the rest of their families- it'd be a weird conversation, right?

Pepper hadn't been prepared to leave the quiet life she had at home. Portland was her place, and leaving when she was eleven years old to a place that was across the country. Somewhere inside of her she knew, and that was the only reason she had chosen to go. Her parents took much more persuading. They couldn't return to the simple boring life they had without Pepper. And, having to cut ties from them after she graduated? Not a single chance. Through much persistence from the gentleman in the fancy suit and a lot of threats and demonstrations, eventually they caved. It was hard not to see why this was the best choice for their daughter, she had been hiccuping and sending involuntary bouts of magic at them for five minutes during their conversation. The hardest part wouldn't be leaving, she was always keen for adventure and new things. It was knowing that her parents didn't know what she was doing, or where she was. It was them thinking that she was off at some fancy boarding school and not learning spell work. When the fancy suit man charmed their memories, how could eleven year old Pepper cope?

The sorting for Miss Orion wasn't anything special. There wasn't anyone else who wanted her, so no choices were needing to be made, thankfully. She wouldn't have known what she would have done if she had to physically choose a house for herself. It was much easier to let Puckwudgie take her in as one of their own. She had no outside knowledge of the school, and quite frankly it was intimidating walking up to the castle her first year for the fvery first time. She succeeded, happily enough. The Pucks historically were for those that best represented the heart of a person, and favored healers. Pepper was driven by her heart and nothing else, even if it was terrible for her. Her impulsively rash decision making capabilities relied on the truthfulness and the fullness of her heart. She was quite popular in her year, too. It was hard to not rely and love someone who was so unnervingly happy all the time. Pepper had a lot of friends, and loved every person that gave her the time of day. Okay, maybe not loved everyone, but she at least tolerated them. Making a lot of friends and staying so happy was the only way she was able to get over leaving her parents every year. The last part...leaving forever when she finally graduated- she tried to forget about that part.

These last four years at Ilvermorny had been the best Pepper had seen in her entire life, despite not being able to share it all with her family. She had told them the things she could, her friends, the temperament of her professors, the beauty of the place she had been staying. It was better than nothing, anyway. She had learned more than she thought possible. And maybe not being able to share her life with her family anymore was why she had become so attached to the school and the people there. It was enjoyable, being able to be around like minded people.

The only problem Pepper had this year- the only one she could forsee anyway, was that she had the biggest most silly crush on her best friend, Fletcher. They had known each other for a few years now, haven't they? Why had she decided now to have the palms of her hands sweat when he was around, or the way her heart rate picked up when they talked? Her fifth year here at Ilvermorny would be very interesting, if only because of this new revelation. But, not only that, she had become quite involved in her studies (because, she couldn't be a healer if she didn't take them seriously, right?) and of course the house Quadpot team. She had a very busy year ahead of her. The most Pepper could do was take it by storm, and try not to fall apart around Fletcher. She could do that...couldn't she?
