I think it is too early on for me to be approving or not approving any spells... I mean this is still just interest generation stage (though I got the interest) and hearing any ideas/suggestions/or concepts that might exist

Though on the second one we already have the established stinging hex...

She did...I always just got the impression that a break was a much faster fix than actually having to regrow the whole bone. :)
You are right, I mean we were both working off different impressions but it does seem logical they would have at least a spell that could set bones... ah who cares, thats a bridge to cross later

Episkey is a bone mending spell.  Tonks uses it to fix Harry's Broken nose.

But it's true, as Caela said, there isn't a spell for EVERYTHING

For those odd things like Google said, unspoken spells for little things....

Name: Cassidy Brown (not her birth name)
Sex: Female   
Age: 30   
Height: 5 ft./7 in.
Weight: 141 lbs.

Wand: Generic hazel wand with dragon heartstring core, curved handle and straight shaft five inches long. Used it a long time and it seems to like her but well is not one that chose her.

Magical Items: Pocket Watch (transports the user back where they were up to five minutes before, a focused form of teleportation). Shield Necklace (causes jinxes and curses bounce off the wearer, won't work on major magic). Old Fashioned Pen (self-inking, spell checking). Bracelet (turns luck in craps strongly to the wearers favor). Mood Ring (lights up when over a roulette space that will come up next, most of the time). Ring (protects from being detected as a witch from low to middling magic).

Blood Status: Half-Breed (Vella)

Affiliation:  Unaffiliated

Strength:  The family since the Salem Witch Trials integrated into Muggle society and few Wizarding families are so well-connected around and have knowledge of Muggles. Among magical folk the family is widely perceived as Squibs allowing them to live under the radar. Is very talented in charm magic, enchanting items and concealment magic as in to hide things. Has a very Muggle education (see below). Has the benefits of being Vella Blooded she is beautiful, can enchant men, is resistant to some magic and has strong social skills.  Is a rather good down and dirty magical duelist not the fancy sport version she is trained to fight including unarmed combat, but only as a must use it to survive. Known magical law well. Wealthy.

Weakness: Like most of her family is home schooled in magic and although has potent Charm magic is not as good in other areas, potions is especially weak at around a 3rd Year at Hogwarts but did focus on curative potions so is best at those. Is seen as a Squib is not exactly noble among magical folk. Has not as good connections among Wizarding folk.  Wand is not custom she got it from a third party source and even though is attuned to it the wand doesn't allow her magic to be as good as other magical folk save oddly charms its normally effective. Is ingrained not to use magic with a wand openly so even in a fight she will rarely act if not threatened.

Personality: Like most of her family she is far more comfortable among Muggles than magical folk and is very subtle pretending to be a Squib among magical folk, not hard she was not formally schooled in magic and save for passing the USA version of the W.O.M.B.A.T and heavily uses passive magical devices. Her families view is the best defense is to hide and meld into Muggle society where wizarding authorities have little access to. Its not all sinister she is good hearted, appealing, socially talented and quite brilliant just well focused in other areas than magic. She enjoys some business interests in the Wizarding world however and more in the Muggle world using her magical talents to get ahead in the nice Gray Areas of magical law and keeping a low profile. Is very hesitant to ever use a wand in public unless disguised.

History: Grew up with her parents after her birth in a Vella enclave in Greece, and was introduced to magical studies young and heavily home-schooled in both Muggle educational areas and magic. Her record not showing up as a newly born witch in the USA. She was however taught outside normal channels and carefully introduced as just another Squib in the family among magical people. She entered Bryn Mawr College and earned a degree in Philosophy with tons of electives then earned a double degree an MBA/JD in Business Law. Since then she used her magic to score at casinos using luck turning magical items, invested that and made more money and is a rising star in the family. And good thing much of her money is in Muggle banks an area Wizarding folk don't care about and its easy to convert at the bank on the other side of the fence.

I had my character approved earlier through PM, but since there are some in the thread now I wanted to add mine as well.



Name:   Lisa Yamazaki
Sex:    Female
Age:    19
Height: 5’2”
Weight: 110 lbs.

Blood Status: Muggle-born
Affiliation:  Order of the Scar
Strength:     Healing, Potions
Weakness:     Divinations

Personality

Lisa is a very intelligent but timid young woman, driven by curiosity and a desire to help others. She takes her role as a healer very seriously, and gladly worked long hours up until the recent loss of her job. She has issues with self-esteem, especially with regard to being Muggle-born. Though she finds violence and revenge extremely distasteful, she has increasingly come to feel that she should take on an active role in resisting the Neo-Death Eaters.

Her hobbies include reading, studying magic, and watching Muggle televison and movies. She is a lesbian, but has yet to be in a relationship or have sex.

History

Lisa Yamazaki is a Muggle-born witch, originally from the city of Boston. Her parents, Michael and Hanako, were distant but overbearing—hardworking professionals who pushed their only child too hard. While Lisa was very bright and excelled academically, she became withdrawn and awkward socially. She did have friends, though she never got to see them outside of structured activities and did not feel close to anyone.

As she neared her eleventh birthday, Lisa and her family suffered through the usual bizarre occurrences caused by adolescents coming into their magical abilities. Lisa’s paternal grandfather Tarō, a squib who had abandoned the wizarding world out of resentment, turned Lisa’s parents against her. They became emotionally abusive as a result. When Lisa received her invitation to Salem Memorial, the nearby boarding school for witchcraft and wizardry, she decided to run away from home rather than ask for permission she knew would not be forthcoming.

She followed the directions to the hidden local haven for magical businesses in Boston, but with no money or anyone to guide her she ended up crying alone on a sidewalk. Lisa was found there by Professor Annabella Smithson (née Arcadia), the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Salem Memorial. Annabella was deeply concerned about the lost girl, purchasing all her supplies and getting her to the train station in time for her trip to school.

Lisa adjusted well to life at Salem Memorial, despite occasional bullying she received due to being a Muggle-born. However, she returned from Christmas break with a black eye and bruises inflicted by her grandfather. She had been forbidden from returning to school and had run away again. Annabella had been keeping tabs on the girl she had helped, and seeing this was too much to bear. When the professor offered to adopt Lisa, she gratefully accepted.

The adoption caused a great deal of tension with Annabella’s husband Varius, who had once been somewhat open-minded but was increasingly becoming obsessed with the ideology surrounding blood purity. He refused to let Lisa take the family surname—the Smithsons were Pure-Bloods, as was the family Annabella had come from. Lisa gained no siblings from the adoption, as Annabella was infertile.

By the end of Lisa’s fifth year at Salem Memorial, Varius had transitioned from mere reactionary to full-fledged Neo-Death Eater. Annabella rented a place for Lisa to stay in Salem for her safety, and then went back home to seek a divorce and try to keep possession of her house. She soon fell ill and passed away. While it was later proven that Annabella was poisoned, she was considered a blood traitor by her relatives and the investigation into her death was a farce. No charges were ever filed against Varius or anyone else.

Lisa was almost constantly by her adoptive mother’s side during the final week of her life, and her death affected the young witch deeply. Despite a battle with depression Lisa was able to seek out and obtain legal emancipation. She redoubled her efforts at school, determined to become a healer in part due to witnessing Annabella’s illness.

After graduation Lisa worked for a year at the Beneficence Hospital for Magical and Mundane Ailments in Boston. Despite her exemplary work, she was fired from her post to protect the hospital’s reputation—the political climate in the city was becoming increasingly dire, and the hospital’s administration pushed out all Muggle-borns to protect the donations they received. With nothing to keep her in the area, Lisa left for New York City. She hoped to find work, and despite her dislike of violence she increasingly desired to become involved with the resistance against the encroaching darkness.

I think recruitment has gone well, I have some replies to make but after that I will be putting up a discussion thread where I will post the official history (and maybe answer a question or two that might be lingering) and also the character approval page which will contain the rules as well... if anyone would like to volunteer to help run or organize then PM me now.

Name:   Priyam Thomas
Sex:    Female
Age:    25
Height: 5'2"
Weight: 125lbs


Blood Status: Pure-Blood
Affiliation:  Unaffiliated
Strength:     Dueling, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms
Weakness:     Transfiguration, Potions, Divination
Wand:     Core: Dragon Heartstring Wood: Yew (white color) Length: 10 inches

Personality
Priyam is a determined witch. She has many aspirations to be greater and attain more power so she can become high ranked. Priyam is a reserved witch, a keen listener and observer but is not afraid to "act the part" and socialize when the time calls for it. Priyam believes that all humans are equal regardless of their magical ability. Priyam is loyal, has lots of patience for stupidity. She is not afraid to protect those who can't protect themselves and stop those who want to hurt others that can't protect themselves. Priyam despises bullies of any kind.


History
Priyam was born to Mita Patel (a pure blood witch of Indian decent) and David Thomas (a half-blood wizard of European decent). Priyam's parents are a happily married couple living a middle class life in the United States. They did not attend any magical school however, preferring to live a muggle life. David Thomas is a stay at home dad and Mita Patel is a homicide detective for the NYPD. When the couple had Priyam in their mid 30's, they thought of her as a miracle. They had been trying to conceive for five years before they gave up only to miraculously conceive Priyam. Before Priyam was born, David Thomas worked as a health aid in an elderly home, leaving the profession to take care of Priyam.


Priyam was a quiet baby, the couple always felt like she had so much going on in her brain as she barely made any noise. As Priyam grew up, she remained the silent type, preferring to read books than play with dolls as a child. When Priyam was 10, she was recruited to join a school of witchcraft and wizardry, her parents having not attended but wanted to let Priyam decide on her own allowed her to attend. Priyam excelled at witchcraft. She loved dueling in her dueling club, and even went as far as to become a dueling captain for her team. Priyam tried out for Quidditch but did not make the team as her flying skills were "okay" but not as good as other students. 


Priyam studied Defense Against the Dark Arts partly because it was interesting and partly because she wanted to be more like her mother who was a police officer and later detective. While Priyam excelled at Charms, her ability for more complicated transfigurations was "acceptable". She had and still does have a difficult time with transfigurations. Priyam received poor results with Potions and Divination, often becoming too frustrated with the practices. Her worst encounter was when a potion she made exploded and seared the hair off her eyebrows and top of her head. Priyam had to continue her studying of Potions often retaking classes since her aspiration was to become an Auror.


After graduating, Priyam went on to become an Auror and did the training program, but was not selected. She then went on to join the lower ranked magical law enforcement patrol in New York that takes care of lesser threats.


Concerning the Neo-Death Eaters, Priyam does not support the Dark Lords agenda. Though she is a pureblood witch, she grew up with muggles as her parents did. She believes that magic and non-magic folk are equal which is part of the reason she is in law enforcement. Though this is her first year on the job, she has bravery, intellect and quick reflexes that rival many Aurors.

Name: Tsubaki Ageda
Sex: Female
Age: 22
Career: Psychic
Height: 5' 1"
Weight: 115lbs
Sexual Preference: Straight; curious tendencies

Blood Status: Muggle-born (Part Veela on her mother's side. Her great-great-great grandmother.)
Affiliation: Order of the Scar
Strength: Divination, the outdoors/being around animals, fast and agile
Weakness: Being cut off from the outdoors, duels/combat
Wand: 11 2/3", English Oak, Veela hair core

Personality:
Tsubaki has always been a friendly girl. At a young age, she started reading and learning all she could. Because of her eagerness to learn, she became an extremely smart girl at the tender age of 12. However, this sort of alienated her from the other kids. She didn't have too many friends, and being a witch added to that alienation.

Tsubaki loves being outside and around animals. She feels a strong connection to nature, and channeling the energies of the outdoors helps make her spells and magic stronger. At least that's how it feels to her. She is quick to defend her allies (human and animal alike), putting herself in danger for a loved one.


History:
Tsubaki came from a long line of witches and wizards, dating all the way back to the 1500s. Though, for some unknown reason, after her thrice great grandmother gave birth to her children the magical gene seemed to have vanished.

Though it came as a surprise when the gene resurfaced in Tsubaki. As soon as she learned to talk, her parents knew something was different in her. The young girl seemed especially gifted in being able to predict future events. When she learned to speak, she predicted her aunt's pregnancy. Right down to the minute the baby was born. It astounded everyone in her family.

She doesn't remember much about the fall of Harry Potter and his friends. Only that they were trying to do good, and were killed for it. Her parents even mentioned how much she was like Hermione; smart and beautiful. Even though her parents were muggles, they knew something bad was happening. They would hear bits and pieces of news about the on-going war. That's how they knew of the fallen heroes. Tsubaki did her own research when she was fifteen, finding out all she could about the tragic war and all the lives that were lost. She was so disgusted by the travesty that she vowed she would do all she could to help overthrow the Dark Lord and his flunkies. So when she became old enough, she was determined to be part of the new resistance. And so she was.

Name: Alysia Diana Prince
Sex: Female
Age: 51
Height: 5 foot 2
Weight:

Blood Status: Pureblood
Affiliation: Order of the Scar
Strength: Charms, Defensive Magic, Business Management
Weakness:

Personality
For the most part Alysia prefers to keep to herself and rarely use magic. She emerses herself in a small muggle dress shop that she runs in New York City and rarely socialises. She avoids any and all conversation about her past and tends to get a bit snappy at anyone who asks.

History
Alysia was born in England in 1962 to a wealthy pureblood couple, and is a step-cousin of founding Death Eater Severus Snape, though she had very little to do with him or his family growing up, her parents disapproving of Eileen's marriage to a muggle.

Soon after the capture and execution of Harry Potter, Alysia wrote to her cousin informing him that she was moving but did not tell him where. She then made preparations to move to America and settled in New York, using what remained of her savings to establish a muggle dress shop in a suburban shopping mall, where she has worked ever since.
