      ☆ written by ✩ Chromatic
      Play-by: Nana Komatsu
      Secrets:

      She had very few memories of her mother, and she feels like she’s forgetting them. Not that she doesn’t remember her or what she looks like. The pictures and videos from her father and grandparents are shared often and readily. But she doesn’t know what memories are hers, and which were told to her by others. 

      She feels a bit lonely at times and resents her father for it. All of their moving and traveling has been good for her in some ways, and detrimental in others. She just wants to feel rooted and secure.

      General Knowledge:

      Has traveled. A lot. Her passport is quite full for a 16 year old. 
      Speaks several languages with various levels of fluency, and even with her least fluent languages, she is able to navigate reading menus and street signs, and ask for directions. English (Fluent), Welsh (Fluent), Japanese (Fluent), French (Adequate), German (Basic), Italian (Basic) 

      Her roomates will notice that her specially made steamer trunk has an extra compartment in it that is to store her robe from Mahoutokoro. Keen eyes will notice that they are a different color every year.

      She has a flair for charms and her magic can be a bit showy. There’s a sort of shimmery and glowing quality to them that she hopes gets her extra points on practical exams.

      Mimics accents of the people she's talking to unconsciously in an effort to fit in more readily. Her actual accent though is hard to place. She’s been too many places and speaks several languages interchangeably. Some might just place her accent as vaguely european.

      Appearance:

      On the taller side of average for her age, she’s lean and willowy with a slightly rounded face and brown eyes. Her hair is black with a bit of a wave to it. She’s kept it long for most of her life, but it’s recently started getting shorter and shorter. 


      She leans towards simpler, clean styles of clothing. Nothing with too bold or bright of a pattern, and easily cleaned and stored. She hasn’t been able to part with all of her soft sweaters and coats that were needed when they were living abroad, and often will wear them in the evenings, even if it does get too warm.

      Personality:

      Organized and studious, but erring on the aloof and dreamy side of it. Siwan spend so much time traveling, that it was difficult for her to make really close friends, but she is personable nonetheless. She makes for a pleasant conversation partner during lunch, or waiting in line at a cafe. 
      Academically, she does well when she actually sits down and applies herself, but she is prone to doodling and writing instead of doing her homework. It comes and goes in waves, but she has better success when she can study on her own, without outside distractions encouraging her to abandon her work. She does still manage to turn everything in on time, and performs decently on tests and in class.

      Connections:

      Rhys Llewellyn - Father

      Amanda Llewellyn - Mother (deceased)

      Significant Dates:

      2007 - age 6 mother Amanda dies in an accident
      2008 - Started Attending Mahoutokoro at age 7 while living in Japan
      2013 - Moved to England and attended Hogwarts
      2017 - Moved again at 16 years old back to Melbourne.

    The first handful of years of a child's life is usually unremarkable. Unremembered except by parents and family. Siwan Llewellyn was no exception to this. She could not remember her first steps. Or the way that her mother would spin around and hug Siwan tightly as she was picked up. Or that by the time she was four years old, she had flown in planes, ridden so many trains, taken several ferries, and had been to more countries than she had fingers.

    She was loved greatly, and well taken care of. Educated by great minds both in schools and from the wise old lady that lived next door and gave her sweets because Siwan reminded her of her own daughter. By the age of five, Siwan spoke two languages… sometimes at the same time, much to the amusement of her parents. She was working on Japanese with her mother Amanda, while they traveled, and when in Melbourne, she delighted her grandparents when she showed them her carefully written notes, and she spoke with a lilting, bell-like voice to show off all that she had learned. 

    Germany brought a whole slew of new experiences. They had been traveling around Europe that year, and the plan was to head south towards Italy next after her father had completed his round at the magical hospital, but this was the last stop for them. Someone had run a traffic light and Amanda was unlucky. They all were. They spent the next 10 months in Melbourne before moving to Japan. 

    It was a tough year, but it was soothed by Siwans new adventures at school. Part of the draw to Japan was learning about, and becoming immersed in a culture that made up a huge part of her mother's life, and her mother's parents. At seven, she began day school at Mahoutokoro, and stayed there until she was twelve. It was the longest she had stayed in one country that she could remember. However, the number of times that they had moved house, was almost unimaginable to any of her classmates. 

    It was only a matter of time, when it was thought back on, that the family of two would pack up and leave once again. This time it was back to Europe. Back to Wales, which Gawain has insisted that they had been to before, when Siwan was much younger. She was twelve then. Old enough to be starting at a new school two years in. At Hogwarts, she was shy at first, but in the three years that she was there. Transitioning from a child and into a teen, she came into her own. 

    Although she was sorted into Ravenclaw, there was little regard for the houses in the years following The Battle of Hogwarts as more than a designation for grouping students into more manageable sizes. There was a unity there, and a healthy rivalry that she loved. She had started to make good friends, staying up well into the night. Their shared dormitory a mess of clothing, and school books, sweets, and letters from home. She was starting to love it there, and even though she hoped that the summer trips never stopped, Siwan looked forward to the beginning of the school year. 

    She found out that they were moving back to Melbourne at the end of her fifth year. That summer, they didn’t travel too terribly far. Instead, Siwan visited her friends that she wouldn’t see again. They cried. Photos were taken. It was incredibly dramatic in the way that teenage girls often were. Part of it though, was to perhaps make her father change his mind. Of course it didn’t work.

    They moved to Melbourne anyways with the promise of stability and her dad being around more. Their temporary place was near her grandparents, and her summer was spent reconnecting with them. Her Japanese had been rusty from years of having no one to really practice with. She would walk with her grandmother to the nearby asian market with big floppy hats on and fans in their hands to stay somewhat cool in the Australian heat .All the while, she dreaded the start of the school year.
