    • PB is negotiable;
    • From Tucson, AZ, USA;
    • Renee Hawthorn's mother, and had her during the summer break between her sixth and seventh year in Ilvermorny;
    • Very complacent and anti-confrontation;
    • Divorced;
    • Victim of abuse at the hands of her ex-husband;
    • Fairly well off financially;
    • Anything else is up to you.

    Cindy was born in Tucson, AZ, to a fairly well off Wizarding family. While she was mostly removed from the Muggle world for most of her life, it didn't keep her from venturing out during her breaks from Ilvermorny during her breaks; it was during one such break that she fell for Jesse Adams, a Muggle a couple years older than her, and in between her sixth and seventh year she wound up giving birth to a child, almost a month premature, after having conceived her during the previous Winter break.

    Her parents offered to take care of the child while she left to complete her final year in the institution. Jesse wasn't a present parent during this time, claiming that he was 'looking for a job' the whole time. Seeing the lack of support of her boyfriend, Cindy took it upon herself to get a job while going to college for Journalism so to support little Renee. Her parents helped her still, and Cindy soon grew frustrated with her boyfriend's manipulative ways and avoidance of responsibility.

    Despite her better judgement, love blinded her and the two wound up marrying shortly after her graduation (with her family, again, forking over most of the bill). As they moved together, her husband soon turned abusive, using emotionally manipulative tactics (and the ever so useful yelling) to get the better of both mother and child and guilt them into doing whatever it is he wished. She felt trapped, yet lacked the initiative to break free and escape.

    She managed to cover for her daughter's use of magic over the years. When time came for the little girl to enroll in Ilvermorny, Cindy lied to Jess and stated that she had been saving up to place her in a reputed private school a little ways away from town; enraged over never seeing this supposed money, Cindy was subjected to harsher treatment than usual for the following year, exacerbated by her being the sole target of that wrath as she forced Renee to stay in school during breaks.

    It all came to a head during the break between the first and second year for her daughter. Once Jess struck the girl over an argument (during which she was standing up for Cindy, no less), the woman decided that, for as much as she would tolerate over the man, she would place her daughter's well being above all. She left an anonymous tip to the police over the rampant tax fraud her husband had been performing ever since she'd known him; after his arrest, she hired a lawyer and got the divorce she wanted.

    She then realized that she had to get away. The fact of the matter was that Jess would one day get out of prison; she couldn't have him chase her or Renee. The moment the young girl touched ground in Tucson, she had her surname change to Hawthorn, Cindy's maiden name; she then wiggled her contacts right up until she found a stable job in Australia, and after securing housing near the school Renee would be enrolling at, she took her daughter and left.

    Feeling deeply ashamed over the fact she had let things reach that low point, Cindy never told Renee what happened throughout that year past the very loose details. Instead, she opted to give the girl free reign to deal with the situation herself, which has backfired over time. What can she do at this point to make things better?

    • Finally out of her ex-husband's grasp and in a new country, Cindy now has the opportunity to start anew. Aside from the various issues she has pertaining her daughter, what are her priorities in life?
    • Renee seems to be getting worse and worse as time goes by. While Cindy gave her daughter free reign to do as she pleased (little to no curfew, allowed to stay both at home and in the dormitories as she wishes, etc), it seems that the time she's alotted the girl to get her to breathe over the situation is only exacerbating the issue. Maybe she should actually take action for a change.
    • She didn't tell Renee the whole story behind why she moved, and much of her daughter's behavior stems from this. Perhaps it's time to consider doing so.
