    • PB is negotiable;
    • She is Forrest Blackwood's estranged sister, having never gotten along with him and detesting him to this day (it's mutual);
    • Paige Breyman's best friend since early Tallygarunga days, and is starting to develop very strong feelings for her;
    • Rising star in the Department of Magical Business & Commerce, and particularly ruthless in her career progression;
    • The Blackwoods' golden girl, she has been coddled since birth and is very much a spoiled brat, used to get everything she wants from everyone;
    • Acquired the reputation of being a bully in Tallygarunga days, deservedly so;
    • Doesn't take a 'no' for an answer, either intimidating the person immediately afterwards or scheming behind their backs to get what she wants;
    • While you should make her your own, she's meant to fall for Paige in a very unrequited manner and the fact she's rejected drives her up a wall. She's meant to, first, be in denial for a while, and second, sabotage Paige's life to make her go running back to Vanessa and have nobody else to turn to or to fall for. It's meant to serve for character development for Paige as she breaks free, and development for Vanessa in any which way you may deem appropriate;
    • Anything else is up to you.

    Vanessa is the second born child to Skyler and Campbell Blackwood, as well as the first and only girl, following Forrest by roughly six years. Her parents had always wanted a girl so she earned their favor before she could even speak a single word, and her brother's fraternizing with Muggles, Squibs, Muggleborns and such sort worked in her favor. They spoiled her rotten from a very young age which largely contributed to her unpleasant disposition. They also gave her high standards to meet, but she never minded these too much as she's a naturally ambitious woman.

    Growing up, she and Forrest never saw eye to eye. While she was on her high horse he was more down to Earth, and their confrontational tendencies ensured they clashed almost every day. These weren't mere normal sibling arguments - they genuinely grew to hate each other, and, in Vanessa's case, pettiness came into play and she frequently sabotaged his life whenever she could. The straw that eventually broke the camel's back came in the form of her finding out he intended to attend a Muggle college and casually revealing it to their parents without permission which ultimately resulted in the man getting disowned and for their excuse of a bond to be severed permanently. She's never had any remorse to show for it and to this day she tries to get under his skin even if only indirectly, or through "accidental" meetings.

    As for her academic life she's always been at the top of the class and accepted no less. With a fantastic mind for business, economics and manipulation she became a natural in her chosen field, being more than apt to play the game of Ministry politics at her young age. She's entirely unafraid of stabbing people in the back to climb the career ladder or otherwise getting her hands dirty in any way. She's used to getting what she wants in life, and that includes promotions.

    Early on in her Tallygarunga days she met Paige Breyman. She used the excuse of wanting to be her friend to get close to her, although she was only looking for some sort of patsy; one thing or another led her to actually grow fond of her, however, and an unlikely genuine friendship sprouted between the two. When Paige was kicked out of her home, Vanessa readily gave her shelter (the irony of the situation not having gone over her head), and to this day they remain best friends. However, something is changing - that is, the way she sees the Bilby teacher. She's starting to become quite romantically inclined towards the redhead (much to her own shock), and as she grows to want her more and more, it means she needs to go out and get what she wants, right? It's not like she's ever had trouble in that department anyway, considering Vanessa knows she's attractive. What could possibly go wrong?

    • Vanessa and Forrest aren't on speaking terms, exactly, but it's likely that she goes out of her way just to spite him;
    • Does she try to approach Forrest's kid in any way given that Paige babysits him every few days?
    • She always gets what she wants, and she wants Paige. Given that Vanessa knows she's highly desirable and Paige prefers women, it shouldn't be too hard, right? And if all else fails, she'll just need a plan B, C, and D to pull it off.
