I have lost my Appendage. He passed away happily in his sleep. He is now running around in the Rodent afterlife. Safe from cats and nasty treats.
Currently: Seventh year Flinders student at Tallygarunga.
Remi is an odd mixture of someone who wants to help everyone but also retain some independence without any real idea of who she is or what the world has to offer her. She has spent the majority of her life in seclusion only stepping out into the world in the last two years. This means she doesn’t always have a lot of social skills, is known to say or do the wrong thing and can be curious bordering on the inappropriate at times.
She loves experiencing new things and tends to get over excited at things for most kids her age are actually very normal, bouncing on her toes, speaking rapidly and often not making sense. She seems to have little fear and can be easily talked into new and dangerous situations under the guise of ‘a new experience’. The young witch seems to accept people at face value, not overly grasping that people may lie or have agendas other than what is right before her face.
But beside the wide eyed innocent and gullibility is a secretive side. She doesn’t like to talk about herself, about the past which is known well within the community she inhabits or how she survives away from that past. She can be rather sensible and makes practical decisions when it comes to certain aspects of her life. She studies hard and attempts to achieve good grades as sees this as a way to get to a better life.
She is lonely, finding it hard to fit in with her peers due to her slightly different upbringing and sometimes retreats from the general population into a world of books and stories.
Remi is just about average in all aspects of her person. She stands at around five foot five give or take a couple of inches, her body shape is slim and though she does have some curves they are subtle enough to not be noticed unless wearing clothes that are pretty much a second skin. Though her face is pleasant enough there is very little about it that makes her stand out from the crowd. She has large oval shaped eyes, the pupils a light brown. Her face is framed by long and wavy brown hair that she does very little too. Her eye lashes could be considered enviably long by some.
She walks with a slight bounce most of the time, a smile often donning her lips. Often she dresses in a mixture of comfort and fashion, heavily leaning towards fashion most of the time. Remi does tend to prefer colour in her outfits, sometimes showing up in some very bright eye sores of outfits. The young witch can always always be seen with her pet rat on her shoulder.
Remi Winifred Cornfoot was born too a witch who was apart of a commune that existed just outside of Victoria, on the border of NSW. The commune was called Wizards First or the WF. The group believes that interacting with muggles have a negative impact of wizardry society. Remi’s mother was the daughter of a muggle born witch when she join and had seen, in her opinion, first hand how the clash of those worlds had destroyed everything she loved – well this is what she told her daughter. Remi was raised in this world, taking in the lessons given by the leaders of the group, learning only magic they deemed necessary and not expanding on their knowledge.
As a child this seemed fantastic, she got a close community and many friends. Protected by her mother from a large part of the less than pleasant things that went on. It wasn’t until she was hitting her teenage years that she started to see threw the veil and lies of the commune. She began to wonder what she was missing out on. Yet leaving the security of the commune was not something she was in any hurry too leave.
Then at the age of fifteen life changed again. Her mother passed away from spider bite that could have easily been treated if the group had taken her to muggles for help, but, instead they allowed her to suffer. This changed how Remi viewed them beginning to see flaws in the logic of the group. It took her a few months and reaching out to family members she wasn’t even aware she had to try and get out. It was a battle but eventually she packed up the few items she had and walked away. This also meant for the first time in her life she was out and alone in the wider world and signing up to attend school, coming in half way through a much more diverse education than she ever had. But one year on, living at school during the school term and having her own small place in the holidays, a part time job and her first ever pet she’s out there and trying to live in a world she was raised to be wary of.
