Character Name: Roberta Lilian Cart (Bobby to her friends).
Played By: Laura Harring
Blood Status: Muggleborn
Description: Approximately 5'8, average weight, a bit on the busty side. Dark hair, olive skin, brown eyes, attractive. Mixed race Hispanic and Caucasian.
Personality: Bobby has gone through many phases in her life, but a few qualities have always remained the same: she is tenacious, stubborn, brave and outgoing.
Background: Originally born in Montana, USA, Bobby and her twin brother Steven were always the black sheep of their otherwise traditional family. Their father was a military man, since retired due to severe injury in Vietnam that took his eye. Their mother an outspoken Latina nurse. Both have since taken over a set of horse stables housing the mounts of the wealthy who head to the mountains once a year to ride them. Their oldest brother, almost fifteen years their senior, is the single Sheriff of the small town where they grew up.
Wanting something different and being inseparable, the two had great difficulty when it came to light that Bobby was a witch and would be attending school at Northwestern Magical Academy in B.C., Canada. Nevertheless, she graduated a year before he did from his Muggle High School. In the meantime, she worked in town and saved every dime she could, while Steven worked after school doing the same.
At the age of seventeen the two ran off to Seattle. Bobby began going to school to be a journalist, Steven dropped out from a Communications program to join a rock band. Both had success in their own ways, and finally separated a few years later to achieve their own dreams.
Bobby's life in Britain began thanks to a long standing wild streak that led to a quickly failed marriage with an Englishman she originally met in NYC. She decided to stay, and slowly began to settle down into an adult life.
She has lived in Britain for seven years, mostly in the Muggle world. She has recently become a reporter at The Daily Prophet after years of working for various publications around the UK. It is the first time she has taken a position within the Wizarding World.
Reason for Joining the Rebellion/Death Eaters: As said above, she is stubborn and tenacious. She also has a very strong sense of right and wrong. Eugenics is a repulsive ideology of which she would give anything to defend against. Even in a country not her own, recognizing the beliefs of the Dark Lord as those wishing to wipe herself and her family out of existence.
Wand: 7 1/2 inches, yew, unicorn hair.
Pet: A very overweight, very scarred and very mangy cat by the name of Biggles. She found him outside her apartment one day, and he might be the ugliest cat in existence. She thinks he is the sweetest kitten alive. This might have to do with the fact that the cat is missing his eye, just like her father.
