AdaPurpleplum is a 19 year old (DOB: December 19, 1998) half-blood witch living in wherever the wind pushes her. She wields a 12½" Elm, Dragon Heartstring wand, and is a member of the unsorted masses of Hogwarts students just off the train eagerly crowding around the Sorting Hat.

About Me
Behind Ada's seemingly crazy attitude and her antics, under her ironical mockery, one, if very attentive, could catch sight deep in her green eyes of a glimpse of her mysterious past. When she lets herself go, when the spark of mischievousness in her eyes fades, when she stops bouncing all over the place and just slumps down on a bench, head in her hands,because she thinks no one can see her any more, then can we see how lost this beautiful young woman-in-making is. In the way her shoulders tense and her hands shake under the table sometimes the day, in the way her breath becomes harsh at night when she thinks she's the only one still awake can we understand how truly hurt she is. But few are the ones who have even just scratched the truth of her past.

When her mother, a Muggle-born, former Gryffindor, beautiful witch named Maya who worked for the Ministry the day, in the Department of Magical Sports and hunted Dark Mages for the Order at night found out she was pregnant, she disappeared from the mundane world and went in hiding to raise her child far from the dangers of her unofficial profession. Ada was raised far from the magical world, in a remote little muggle village, and in fact was raised as if she was a Muggle herself. Maybe did Maya think that her daughter would be more protected if she didn't know about magic, nor about her father or the war that divided the magical community and killed so many.

But even if she didn't know about it, the time came for Ada to realize that she could use a wand, produce powerful spells and was invited to a school for beings such as herself : witches and wizards. When she left her mother, she didn't understand why she seemed so worried. She got a clue soon enough, when she found out Maya had gone missing.

Since then, Ada has had no rest in her search for her mother, and more recently of her father, while having to deal with her school years, which she passed brilliantly as a Ravenclaw, and keeping up the appearances.
