    NOTE: For anything pertaining to her story pre-Hammonds, refer to LilyCat to establish her link to Sibylla Townsend further.

    • Name and PB are negotiable;
    • She is Samantha and Keira Hammond's mother. In fact, she's a mother of four. She willingly married into a family known for the comical number of offspring each and every member produces, and decided to contribute with her own bundles of joy. They deliberately paced it at one per four years for the sake of neatness, and is very proud of all her children and grandsons. They stopped having kids so not to have others grow suspicious of her age, and consequently, species;
    • Full Veela;
    • Shares some sort of past with Sibylla Townsend (contact LilyCat), to the point where they see each other as sisters even if they're not actually blood related;
    • Have the full family tree;
    • Anything else is up to you.

    As with any Veela, she has a bit of a way with men; however, deeming herself a free spirit, she's refused to be tied down for the longest time. It's a mystery how Colin Hammond managed to get this woman to settle down, yet she has, and gave birth to four little tykes to boot - Keira, Shreya, Landon and Samantha.

    Through the centuries she's traveled the world, seen many faces, befriended many people; none were quite as close to her as Sibylla and Skye were, however, not by a long shot. It was a sisterhood they've carried for forever. Eventually Barbara and Skye settled down in Melbourne, Australia. They had tied the knot at roughly the same time, Barbara to the Hammond family, Skye to the McCarthy family; unfortunately, the latter came to perish. Barbara was pushed away by Seth McCarthy and there was little she could do to help little Evelyn at all, and so she focused her efforts in raising the soon to be born Keira alongside her own husband, hoping one day she'd have the opportunity to re-approach - which she was able to once Seth passed away, a whole 18 years later.

    The years that succeeded her marriage were chaotic with a number of misunderstandings and arguments among most of the family - they are famous for their quirks and chaotic environment - but happy all the same. Barbara wouldn't trade her family for anything, and cares deeply for each and every one - even if some make an effort to keep their distance, either from each other or from the family itself. All she can now do is utilize the wealth of social knowledge she's attained over centuries and hope it works on solving everyone's problems.

    • How does she go about trying to hide the fact she's a Veela from the populace? The years are going by and she's not getting any younger...
       
    • Keira sure likes giving her headaches and openly challenge how much of a free spirit she truly is with the binds she used to get into. Now, she left her children in the care of Barbara and her husband. It never ends...
       
    • Samantha's always had severe problems at school when it came to her grades. Maybe it's time Barbara realizes the girl needs medical help.
       
    • Evelyn reminds her of Skye, her dead sister/friend - she's the spitting image of the woman. Perhaps she should seek a closer bond while imparting information about Evelyn's mother to keep her interested.
       
    • She and Sibylla go way back. Way, way back - to the point the sisterhood bond they have is legally recognized, and they're seen as connected by blood. Their storied past should serve for some fun interactions.
       
    • Amber Cross is afraid of Barbara for no reason other than the fact she's a full Veela and she thinks those creatures are scary. Is she going to prank her about it? Is she going to try to make the girl relax about it?
       
    • She's always been someone with a need for freedom, not to be tied down; yet, she chose to do so. What does she do regularly to appease that urge?
