__ THE WAND.
xxxxPhaedra owns a 28.4 cm walnut wood wand with phoenix feather core.

xxxxWalnut wood: versatile, adaptable. Tends to actively seek out highly intelligent witches. [x] Phoenix feather core: capable of performing the widest range of magic but is hard to tame, like the creature it derives from. [x] Her wand is a light, reddish-brown colour. The handle resembles sea waves, and the tip is narrow and straight. It is well cared for.

__ APPEARANCE. _______________________________________________________________________________________
__ xxxxAt 167.64 cm, Phaedra is taller than average for a girl her age which has made her appear a bit lanky until she fills out. Thanks to her Mediterranean lineage, her skin seldom sunburns and tans moderately - granting her tolerance to sunlight. Littered on her nose and cheeks are freckles that become more visible after a day in the sun. __
__ HISTORY. _______________________________________________________________________________________
__ xxxxPhaedra Stavrou was born at home in the early morning of August 27, 2006, with a piercing cry and a head full of dark hair. Prior to the delivery, her parents had no confirmation of her sex, but had both hoped for a boy, of the opinion that it would "be nice to have one of each." Despite their baby not turning out exactly as they had wanted in face of a difficult labor, the couple was grateful for the newest Stavrou's good health and the child was well-received.

xxxxHer home situation is in several ways typical to those of her pure-blooded peers. Throughout her early childhood, she was provided with comforts many lack, including being granted most material desires and having access to the finest tutors the moment she could read and write. Spoiled - an onlooker could call her - but not bratty. Phaedra was still raised to mind authority, and however high her family's expectations may be for a girl her age, they come from a place of good intention.

xxxxPhaedra's first instance of accidental magic was as a four-year-old. She had excitedly turned her cat then, Klaus, bright pink. The cat didn't seem to notice any difference in his fur, but had grown agitated that the girl was parading him around far more than usual to show off. It was a relatively mundane first showing of magic, as most are, but it was confirmation enough to her family. Her grandmother loves retelling that day, but Phaedra finds the story embarrassing.

xxxxAt the age of ten, Phaedra received her letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was taken to Diagon Alley within a week for shopping and received her wand from Ollivander's on the second try. On start of term, 2017, the newly-turned-eleven-year-old was sorted into Ravenclaw, which greatly pleased her. In her first year, Phaedra invested her free time into a few activities and positions; namely as a writer for her house's ex-newspaper, The Diadem, and by working as a prefect for her then Head of House, Sergei Yornikovych.

__ THE STAVROUS _________________________________________________________________________________
Reducio
__ xxxxThe Stavrou family is an English, pure-blood wizarding family with ancestry from Greece. Since their immigration over a century ago, the few generations of Stavrous all attended and graduated from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; a mix comprising mostly Ravenclaws and some Slytherin. The family values intellect, loyalty, sacrifice, and bloodline preservation. Despite their past anti-muggle sentiments, however, Stavrous in the present-day lean more towards neutrality and will not hesitate to integrate themselves within certain non-magical communities to benefit their own standing.

xxxxThe Stavrous are long-time manufacturers of magical boats and ships, though in recent years the family has gained interest in muggle vessels. The family’s notorious ship obsession is said to have originated from Elefthérios Stavrou, a Greek War of Independence revolutionary later turned admiral. What had started off as smuggling in the name of political resistance had warped into an opportunity for advancement when his half-blood grandson, also named Elefthérios, grew to found Atlas Maritime Ltd., a shipping company, after moving to the United Kingdom in the late 1870s.

xxxxIf one were to look into records of the Stavrous, they would discover a pattern of repeating names in the family line until the 1940s, with Elefthérios and his grandson being one prime example. The gradual abandoning of this naming tradition resulted from marriages into other families. The Stavrous welcomed the change as an effort to seem “more British” - their exclusion from the Pure-Blood Directory on basis of nationality (and questionable blood history) had left much to be desired. Nowadays, the Stavrous are culturally similar to other wizarding families in England but have kept some practices such as teaching their children Greek and occasionally celebrating name days.

xxxxThe exact location of where the Stavrous live is information not given out carelessly. The very first established Stavrou property is Belcourt Estate [x], located somewhere in the hilly countrysides of Northern Manchester. As the family's most beloved residence, Belcourt Estate has gone through countless physical changes at the hands of its previous inheritors. It has a vast interior, but this was not always the case; early floor plans reveal what was originally a much more humble structure. However, it has always sat by a small lake, backed by sparse forest. Gardens, stables, and lea for grazing sheep are yet another detail of the exterior. Muggles approaching the area by road will feel the uncontrollable need to turn away due to repelling charms. Phaedra resides here with her parents, but it's not all too lonely - a cat, two bloodhounds, and half a dozen house elves serve as ample distractions.
__
__ FATHER.
Image_________________
__ xxxxGiannis J. Stavrou was born December 20, 1971. His childhood was mostly typical for a boy of his status. He was a Slytherin and a prefect. Although he is his parents' middle son, Giannis was deemed the heir after his father and is current head of the family's company. Due to his frame and quiet nature, he seems a bit intimidating, but he is a fairly level-headed man. A gentle father, talented wizard, and practising Occlumens, Phaedra deeply respects and loves him. __
__ MOTHER.
Image_________________
__ xxxxRaised in Lefkada, Chrysanthi Kathopoulis was to graduate from an institution in Athens, but was transferred to Beauxbatons at fourteen. Despite her initial protests, the opportunity did lead to her life-long expertise in history and culture and an uncanny mastering of numerous foreign languages. She can earn the trust of others through polite conversation— yet inwardly, she is a woman who never forgets a slight. Her priority is her daughter and Phaedra would not be the same without her strength. __
__ SISTER.
Image_________________
__ xxxxPavlina Stavrou was born June 29, 1995 in the midst of the Second Wizarding War. She was a Ravenclaw and Head Girl in her seventh year. Now wed to a muggle-born named Matthew Clarke, Pavlina is the most outspoken of her family concerning justice. Her disownment from the family lasted all but a few weeks until they missed her, but as an Auror, she couldn't bear living among the shady activity. She turns a blind eye for the sake of her little sister, but to Phaedra, that trust has been broken. __
__ GRANDMOTHER.
Image_________________
__ xxxxHelen B. Travers is the voice of reason, the matriarch, and heart of the family. She attended Hogwarts in her youth where she was sorted into Slytherin. Despite being the person most relatives confide in first, she is a woman with her own secrets and unrelenting memories of past mistakes. Helen is an Occlumens like her son; in fact, she was his teacher. She is second-in-command of the business and is trusted for her managing experience. Her granddaughter, Phaedra, sees her as a role-model. __
__ GRANDFATHER.
Image_________________
__ xxxxEver since passing the business onto his son, Elliot Stavrou has seemed to step away from the forefront of family matters, as if sending a message that he finally wants to spend the rest of his years in peace. His wife would think the same if she didn't know any better. In reality, Elliot is very much still a pushing force behind the scenes; an obsessor of longevity in true Ravenclaw fashion. Phaedra finds the rumour of his research mysterious and wishes he would come around more often to tell her the tales. __
