Have you read through the Character Creation Guide at least once this season? Yes

NAME: Elaine Howell
CHARACTER TYPE: Muggleborn witch
DATE OF BIRTH: 14th January 1967
BIRTH COUNTRY: Chicago, USA (during
EMPLOYER: St Mungo’s Hospital
POSITION: Senior Healer

PRIMARY ERA: Reformation Era

What is the concept for your character?
Elaine is a muggleborn witch who was tortured and imprisoned during the war. Since then, she has begun to rebuild her life to the best of her ability. She is now the mother of an adopted daughter and is just generally trying to guide her daughter along the right path.
What other eras will they be active in and what will their job be in each era?
Marauder - Chicago Academy of Wizardry Student, 1st Year
Golden - Healer
Legacy - Senior Healer
What does your character look like?
Elaine has always been told she is the mirror image of her mother, inheriting her soft brown eyes and blonde hair. She inherited her father’s height and manner; she is not afraid of her height and therefore has wonderful posture from years of being told to ‘stand straighter.’

Always impeccably dressed, Elaine believes your outward appearance dictates how you feel inside. The woman is an early riser, who will always dress smartly, even on her days off.
Where can we find your character when their story first begins?
With Adelaide away at Beauxbatons, you would expect to find Elaine working a long-shift at St Mungo’s. With no daughter to go home to, and not wanting to spend too much time with her thoughts, she has thrown herself into her work - treating patients, carrying out research and conducting medical trials.
What was life like for your character one year before their primary era?
A whirlwind. A year ago, Elaine discovered that her ex-fiancee was alive, having been told that she had died during the Wizarding War. The past year has been an odd one . Elaine has quickly settled back into her role at St Mungo’s and earned a promotion; she has more and more started to share the wizarding world with her adopted daughter, Adelaide and all whilst she has been processing and grieving her former relationship. It’s been a wild, confusing ride.
What does your character think their strongest and weakest traits are?
Her strongest trait would have to be her determination and her weakest trait would have to be how much she loves people.
What is something your character wants but does not have?
Elaine would love a relationship with her brother. Upon finding out that Evelyn was alive, she cut off all her ties with her family in France and she is seeking a way to restore that relationship with her brother, who she now has reason to believe had no involvement in what happened to her after the war.
What is something your character would never tell anyone about themselves?
She’s terrified that she’ll end up alone - and that it’s what she deserves.

Welcome to the Wizarding World,
Elaine Howell!
It's great to see some familiar faces again!

Hopefully Elaine can work through her issues in a much calmer post-war world. You might like to begin your story in Don't Tell Me What To Do which takes place in England, or by using one of the following thread ideas:

★ Elaine has a patient with a rather mysterious illness that's baffling the team.
★Treat yourself to something new at Gladrags Wizardwear!
