    Basics

    Full name: Pyxis Priscilla Wilson
    Age: 19
    D.O.B: (Day and month) 31st of July

    Looks

    Hair style: Typically pulled back in a ponytail, with light curls at the end (by design or natural, she'll never tell). Changes colour frequently, depending on Pyxis' mood and what goes with the outfits she's in the mood for.
    Body type: She's on the smaller side in most senses of the word - she has a lithe, flexible, curvy, but very skinny frame. Her legs are a little longer than the norm for her height (5"0)
    Dress sense: Depends intensely on her mood, and the season. She likes to typically, however, wear shorts and big, loose-fitting shirts. She's fond of intensely tight-fitting clothes in summer as well as her shorts and shirts, and likes plaid. Her clothes are always coloured to suit her hair.

    More Information

    As per the typical pureblood household, Pyxis was raised to be everything that she is not - prim, proper, knowledgeable on most everything, and above all else, superior to those around her.  Including other purebloods, for her parents were not so interested in supremacy towards blood as they were towards everyone.  Due to such an upbringing, Pyxis developed a slight superiority complex that grew difficult to shake even when her years at Hogwarts were reached.  Though she loathed her father for reasons that were unknown to even her, and aspired to be nothing like him, she found that her temper, her personality, her passion for potions and for flying all stemmed from the very man she wished she didn't know.  Later in life, it became more obvious to her that her dislike of her father was her similarities towards him, and how fearful she was that she would become a rotten man as he was.

    In her youth, her father taught her few simple truths that she was to accept without question (though her rebellious personality meant that she neglected to do so) - the first, that she was superior to everyone, the second, that she was not superior to him.  Being mother's precious baby and gem meant that Pyxis did not care much for being told that she was not the shining star of his universe, and it created a steady dislike for him that only grew as his abuse did.  By the time she'd reached Hogwarts, Pyxis thought that she was the queen of the universe, and was rudely shocked when most students did not agree with her.  She learned the hard way that one does not make friends when one believes that potential friends are beneath them, and found her first year of school passing by with not a single person to call someone that she could care about, or who cared about her.  Of course, this had the blond questioning whether she was really all that her parents had made her believe that she was.

    Being foolish and young, and not one to learn from previous mistakes unless she'd repeated them for the umpteenth time, she returned home over the summer holidays and informed her father that his teachings were lousy, and that by telling her she was above everyone except for him, he'd isolated her from her peers.  He did not care much for her tone, and punished her by isolating her to her room for a week on end with naught but water and simple meals of bread, over-cooked meat, and vegetables.  Thus, her dislike of being held inside grew, and she found that after that, her time spent outside considerably grew.  In second year, her love of quidditch and acceptance into the team bought her a few friends, though it was difficult to keep her superiority complex under wraps.  Despite comments about how wonderful she was being kept to herself, she was not able to control the temper that she'd built up, born from always being able to do as she pleased around her mother, and most of the time, her father.

    Third year found her befriending a muggleborn, something her father did not approve of.  Even if he thought himself above everyone, that did not mean that no blood supremacy came to play, and he punished her severely for her friendship with this "lower" kind.  He repeated his week-long punishment of keeping her locked in her room, but extended it for two.  Her hate for him only grew with every passing moment, and when she was a fourth year she threw herself whole-heartedly into befriending every muggleborn that she could possibly manage, simply to spite her father.  With his eyes and ears all over the castle and her willingness to admit to such a thing, she was then hit with a dark curse that had her keeping to herself for a long while after that.  Fifth, sixth and seventh years were all devoted to her studies and keeping to herself, afraid of the ramifications if she stepped so much as a toe out of line.

    Fortunately, this constant focus on her studies gifted her with the ticket she required to finally allow herself freedom, and she readily accepted the invitation to attend Merlin's, choosing to follow her passions and study potions there.

    Because of the pressure applied to Pyxis in her childhood, she has turned into something of a vicious rebel. A free spirit with a thirst for adventure, knowledge, and all of the grittier things in life, she spends her days studying and flirting the pants off of the people she serves at the tea shop. She is often looked down upon by media for shunning the responsibilities of being the heir to the Blishwick-turned-Wilson family's company (specialising in high fashion).

    [Note: Pyxis is not aware of her status as half-blood.  Her maternal grandmother had a child with a muggle, though told everyone that he was a rogue pureblood who did not want to be tied down with the burden of parenthood.  Her mother is not even aware of her true status as halfblood]


    Family

    Father: Cepheus Wilson
    Mother: Helen Wilson (neé Blishwick)
    Girlfriend/Boyfriend: She tends to string along at least 2 people at any given time. Monogamy bores her.


    Other (Optional)

    Wand: 10 3/4 inch, Unicorn tail, English oak & Reasonably supple
    Broomstick: Latest model
    Pets: A half-kneazle named Louise
    School that they went to: Hogwarts
    House they were in: Slytherin
    Why you chose your major: Pyxis lives, breathes, eats, and sleeps everything about dragons. She is in love with them, and enjoys the thrill of seeing one up close.
