Has been studying at VMU for the last year, after taking 2 years off
She has a crush on one of the VMU professors.
Velvet is free-spirited and imaginative. She's virtually nothing like her parents and siblings who are all more serious about life and responsibilities. She's crazy levels of outgoing, loves helping people, and adores animals of all sorts. Her hair often changes with her mood.
With the metamorphmagus abilities she was born with, she tends to change her hair colour a lot, though sometimes it changes on its own with her moods. Changing her hair colour has always been one of her favourite things to do. Pink or blue are the colours she has the most. She likes to wear colourful clothing to match her hair and personality. She also has some tattoos she's gotten since her time at Tallygarunga and some piercings.
She loves meeting new people and making friends, her personality is loud and bright. She's warm, friendly, and incredibly outgoing.
She's the youngest of 3 siblings, and a bit of a disappointment to her family. She gets along reasonably well with her older siblings, who all went into serious professions that her parents wanted, while she is free spirited and free thinking and wishes to study Flora and Fauna, a joke to her parents, but she doesn't care what they think of her.
Velvet is demisexual, loves to flirt, but at the end of the day prefers relationships to casual.
How can anyone hate this ray of rainbows and sunshine? She loves all people, unless they hurt others or animals. She can not stand people who abuse animals.
Velvet is the youngest daughter of a pureblood wizarding family, with two older siblings, a sister and a brother. Her early childhood was pretty typical, she was always outgoing but also imaginative and creative, but those weren't traits that her parents cared for. Her parents were good, but stern no-nonsense sorts.That never stopped Velvet though, despite her parents lack of approval.
Her parents were in the Ministry, and her whole family including her sisters were a long line of Bourkes and Sturts, until Velvet came along and was sorted into Flinders. She flourished in most of her classes, especially Care of Magical Creatures and Transfiguration. Although her grades were adequate in school, she continued to be imaginative and free spirited. Both her siblings went to VMU as soon as they graduated Tallygarunga, but Velvet oped to take a gap year.
For the gap year, that ultimately turned into two years, Velvet travelled a bunch all over Australia. She learned to surf and spent time camping in the brush with friends, she really just got out and lived those two years. Now that she's had two years to figure things out, she's enrolled in VMU to study Flora and Fauna, much to the dismay and disappointment of her parents
