    Basics


    Full name: Amber Kalea Carter
    Age: 19
    Date of birth: 8 July 1998
    Birthplace: Cochem, Germany
    Current location: Merlin’s Academy
    Blood status: Halfblood
    Occupation: Student
    Major: Healing
    Year in University: 1st year


    Looks


    Hair style and colour: Long (mid back) and blonde. Usually, she leaves it long or ties a half-up ponytail. Occasionally, she ties it into a bun, giving the impression that she has short hair.
    Eye colour: Light blue
    Height: 5’ 10
    Body type: Skinny
    Dress sense: Very fashionable and sensible; she has a large selection of dresses and skirts.


    Personality

    [At least 3 each, with the exception of quirks; please try and give details and not just one or two words.]

    Likes:
    - A good book
    - Shopping
    - A nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate
    - Being by herself
    - Flying
    - Long walks during cool weather
    - Snow
    - Makeup
    - Dresses and skirts

    Dislikes:
    - Initiating conversation with people she doesn’t know
    - Crowds
    - Small talk
    - Sitting around doing nothing
    - Seeing people hurting
    - Not being able to perform spells well because she can’t speak
    - Talking verbally or having to try
    - Having to explain to people how she became Deaf
    - Being different alone
    - Swimming
    - Small minded people

    Quirks:
    - She’s very shy and so even when signing, she tends to look down at her shoes.
    - Sometimes, she signs so quickly that she skips over words; it becomes the Deaf equivalent to mumbling.
    - Since she knows not everyone can sign (and doesn’t expect everyone to), Amber tends to carry around a notebook and at least one pen by which to communicate with others.
    - When focusing on something, she tends to sign to herself (she thinks ‘out loud’/talks to herself)

    Flaws:
    - Painfully shy, so much so that she could and would go for weeks without talking to anyone
    - She’s quite conscious about her Deafness. Having grown up in a small town where nobody really batted an eye when she would order food through either signing or writing it down, she is naturally a little iffy about how others would receive her.
    - A lot of times, Amber lets people walk all over her, since she isn’t the best at standing up for herself
    - Absent-minded; a lot of times, she doesn’t pay attention to anything going on around her, instead getting lost in her own thoughts.

    Strengths:
    - Wandless magic and non-verbal spells, since it was how she had to cope with her pronunciation issue
    - Potions; since it’s something that doesn’t require either interaction with people or verbal spells
    - Listening to friends and people in need
    - Being there for people; she has this knack for getting people to open up
    - Gentle and patient
    - She writes amazing poems; she uses writing as a way to express herself

    Weaknesses:
    - Public speaking
    - Spells that require verbal incantations
    - A nice autumn or spring day; she loves talking long walks in the forest or by lakes.
    - Deep water; she can’t swim


    More Information


    Amber was spoilt from the moment she was born, getting everything she wanted and more. Her dad is a muggleborn from Germany; his parents owned a very successful company that he took over when they passed away. Her mother is a halfblood from the US, although her ancestry is of UK descent. Amber, therefore, has very mixed culture and heritage.

    Born in a small town in Germany, she grew up happy and healthy, until the age of 5. Contracting a very nasty strain of dragon pox, Amber’s fever reached such a high degree that it left her with permanent hearing damage; by the age of 6, she could barely hear any sounds, and she was pronounced officially Deaf by 7. Having heard of great programs for Deaf children in the US, her mum took her there, where she learnt ASL and all the tricks and tips she would need to survive in the Deaf community. Holidays and weekends were spent back in Germany, until she started school.

    Attending a center dedicated to Deaf people in the wizarding community, she was sorted into a house akin to Ravenclaw, and received only the best education. After graduating with top marks in many areas, Amber took a couple years off to spend time at home with her family, as well as travel with her closest Deaf friends to experience the world, something she had always wanted to do.

    Upon receiving the letter from Merlin’s, she spent a few months debating it; it was to be a new environment, one without her safety blanket of the Deaf community and those who understood it, and she was nervous to attend. Nevertheless, her dream of doing - and being - more was too large for her to contain, and so she left for University in the UK to pursue her dream of becoming a Healer.
