Physical Appearance

Anna is a very distinctive woman, owing to her Native American and Mexican features. Her high cheekbones, deep brown hair, and golden brown eyes tell a tale of native roots that her softly accented voice adds to. She is curvaceous, with an hourglass figure, though the curves often mask lean muscle. Anna tends to dress comfortably, and with a preference toward muggle clothing. Jeans, t-shirts, sweaters, and maybe the occasional skirt or dress seem to be the bulk of her closet.

  • Height: 5'5"
  • Weight: 142 lbs.
  • Distinguishing Features: Clawmarks across her left forearm and her stomach. A tattoo on her right upper arm of a coyote paw print.

Personality

Anna is a one-of-the-guys kind of woman, what most people would call a tomboy. She doesn't mind getting dirty, and actually kind of enjoys it. She thoroughly enjoys Quidditch and Quadpots, and has done her share of playing both sports in her heyday. She likes to have a good time. She's something of a serial datist, having had many boyfriends through the years. She claims no one seems capable of handling her. She is a bit hard to handle, at that. She can be stubborn and argumentative, and takes offense easily when she feels as though she has been unfairly treated. She is rather devoted to sustaining as much of her culture as she can. She tends to worry that she's going to accidentally blow the students up or something, though it hasn't happened yet…

Magical Information

While she is quite skilled in many areas of magic, Anna is most skilled when it comes to the deciphering of Ancient Runes, as well as figuring out how and why they were used. She is capable of using some of the same ancient runes she has studied in particular spells. She is a talented duelist, though a bit underhanded.

Brief History

Anna was born to a Mexican mother and Cherokee father. She was raised between Tahlequah, OK, and various cities in Mexico all throughout her childhood, her parents migrating a lot due to the nature of their work studying North American magical creatures. As was expected, she received letters inviting her to various magical schools around North America (and one in South America) upon achieving her eleventh birthday…At first she determined to attend Miriama…but after three years there she moved to Isabelina in Mexico. She finished out her schooling there, and went on to study Native North American runes, mythology, and various magical histories. She extended her interest to ancient runes and magical history around the globe, and has spent the majority of her years since leaving school studying all over the planet. She has three published books, and is working on a fourth. She took a professorial position at Hogwarts at the urging of some of her colleagues, who seem to believe that she has more knowledge to share with students. She was just fairly certain she'd accidentally blow the students up, but nonetheless, she went ahead with it, figuring she could take a couple of years out of the field.
