PERMISSIVE RECKLESS ECCENTRIC SMART LOYAL
april 1, 2025 ; muggleborn
These Ravenclaws will have lightning-fast mental reflexes. Aries is an intellectual sign, but it is also an impatient sign; Ravenclaws who were born under this sign are likely to tolerate no dull wits or stupidity, whether they see this lack of mental competence in themselves (in which case they will berate themselves for not understanding, or give up quickly in frustration without really trying to overcome their difficulty in learning) or in others
(in which case they will lash out at the offender with acidic comments and haughty, cutting looks). These Ravenclaws will want to be at the head of the class, dominating other students in their chosen intellectual field, and may be almost as competitive as Slytherins. However, the true aim of every Ravenclaw is knowledge, knowledge, and more knowledge. While a Slytherin might see losing a magical duel or being bested by another student in a DADA class as humiliating, the Ravenclaw will probably just take delight in competition for its own sake, and see defeat as a learning experience.
the debater - ENTP-A
100% EXTRAVERTED | 70% INTUITIVE | 63% THINKING | 83% PROSPECTING | 78% ASSERTIVE
The ENTP personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate, thriving on the process of shredding arguments and beliefs and letting the ribbons drift in the wind for all to see. Unlike their more determined Judging (J) counterparts, ENTPs don’t do this because they are trying to achieve some deeper purpose or strategic goal, but for the simple reason that it’s fun. No one loves the process of mental sparring more than ENTPs, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points.

11 ½ inch holly, dragon heartstring
Holly is one of the rarer kinds of wand woods; traditionally considered protective, it works most happily for those who may need help overcoming a tendency to anger and impetuosity. At the same time, holly wands often choose owners who are engaged in some dangerous and often spiritual quest. Holly is one of those woods that varies most dramatically in performance depending on the wand core, and it is a notoriously difficult wood to team with phoenix feather, as the wood's volatility conflicts strangely with the phoenix's detachment. In the unusual event of such a pairing finding its ideal match, however, nothing and nobody should stand in their way.
As a rule, dragon heartstrings produce wands with the most power, and which are capable of the most flamboyant spells. Dragon wands tend to learn more quickly than other types. While they can change allegiance if won from their original master, they always bond strongly with the current owner.
The dragon wand tends to be easiest to turn to the Dark Arts, though it will not incline that way of its own accord. It is also the most prone of the three cores to accidents, being somewhat temperamental.

Freedom is important to Ollie, who has grown up in a home employing lax rules and a disregard for rigid systems. Her lack of ties to a routine has grounded her development in independence, becoming a young girl with a free spirit which takes her wherever she desires, with a great contempt for the rules. It is important for Ollie to feel like she is directing her own life, which she won’t realize until she is older, as the burden of rules and responsibilities feels entirely too restrictive.
Living in such a progressive place as Brighton leads to Ollie also being a free of mind. A great free thinker, she is no sheep, and will have her own opinions she is unafraid to voice and will march to the beat of her own drum, not wanting to idolise other people. Even from a young age she is critical of society and institutions, and she is entirely accepting of the vast walks of life she will experience at Hogwarts. So what if some werewolves are sister eating monsters? The other werewolves probably love their sisters, and that is what matters! Stop lumping people together like that it is rude!
Elevating her permissiveness are her eccentricities. To put it shortly, Ollie is downright weird. Her unique outlook on life only helps her shun the rules and do as she pleases, as she sees the world in a way perfect to her and not for what it really is. All of her behaviour is perfectly normal in her eyes - who doesn’t want to skateboard down a moving staircase with fireworks attached to the wheels for propulsion or try and convince the mermaids and the giant squid to join her rendition of ‘Under the Sea’? An amalgamation of her traits mentioned creates quite the reckless, rebellious girl. In her quest to be true to herself and break through societal boundaries, Ollie is unafraid to tackle something head on, rarely thinking of the consequences of doing so. She never stops to think those fireworks will eventually explode or that the squid might fight her, she just wants to have fun! This might get her into trouble, but she accepts all detentions, loss of house points and/or limbs, and angry letters from her parents with little guilt.
You may not expect it from the fact she shows absolutely no sense of self preservation and acts like a general idiot, but Ollie actually has various smarts. With vast pockets of information, she can surprise people with what she knows - her downfall being she will only actually research something if she finds it interesting. Due to this, Hogwarts will be tough for her. Though some of the bloody battles in history and the hands on approach to certain subjects will be enough to ensure she at least thinks about doing her homework, Ollie was not made with a classroom environment in mind. As such, she has the shortest attention span and a knack for acting the class clown in an attempt to make things more interesting and to avoid tackling the harder parts of the curriculum. If she applied herself, she could be a genius, but her aversion to the classroom is too big a barrier for her to really shine. It’ll be mainly with practical work where she will excel, good at thinking on her feet and adapting to succeed. The smarts people note with her tend to be street smarts - yes she gets herself into trouble but she also is quite adept at getting herself out of it. With a quick mouth and a brain to match, she can talk herself out of a sticky situation (unfortunately her mouth is often too quick and lands her in even more trouble) and if that fails, a childhood spent on the streets allows her to run for cover, bounding over and weaving around obstacles with no troubles.
Finally, Ollie is incredibly loyal to a select group of people. ‘Select group’ being important here. To her closest group of friends, Ollie would throw herself into danger to protect them, and good luck to whoever hurts those she loves for they will have made an enemy for life in Ollie, who would seek to avenge her fallen friend. Even if her friends are in the wrong, she would stand by their side until granted the privacy needed for her to question their life choices. Anyone not in this group provides an interesting case of Ollie being fickle enough to work with them one day and then denounce them the next. Like most of the grades she will be receiving, Ollie is a total T, a troll who exists for entertainment. If she hears of a particularly fun escapade happening, she is more than willing to forget allegiances to tag along, reverting back into indifference to the person once the deed is done. She is also loyal to her causes, never abandoning her thoughts on a broad range of equalities and justices regardless of what other people try to get her to think.

LIKES ; Causing trouble and mayhem, pulling off pranks, heated debates, anything to do with dragons, the smell of damp grass in a morning, swimming in the lake, making friends, barbeques and bonfires, or any source of fire really.
DISLIKES ; Ignorance and prejudice, the enforcement of rules, power trips in authority, bullies of her closest friends.
QUIRKS ; Twists her hair around her finger in a rare show of anxiety, snores loudly, snorts when laughing.
HOGWARTS ; Ollie doesn't do well in a classroom environment so lessons will be tough for her. When something does grab her attention, she will be able to excel greatly but this rarely happens as she would literally rather be anywhere else.
