CassandraClaire is a witch. She is a member of the unsorted masses of Hogwarts students just off the train eagerly crowding around the Sorting Hat.

About Me
As Cassandra grew up, she was passed from the hands of one relative to another. As a baby, her mother left her in the care of her maternal grandmother who died when she was four. Her mother's older brother became her legal guardian. He was married, with only one son whom he doted upon adoringly. Nobody knew who Cassandra's father was, as her mother dated and had many men and none would acknowledge Cassandra as their daughter.

After a few years, her uncle had plans to move back to Paris but he had no intention of bringing Cassandra with them. She went on to be under the care of her mother's younger sister, who married a cunning businessman. And in the name of business, Cassandra was not a profitable investment.

Whenever Cassandra felt things were a little too much to bear, she would slip out of the house in the pretense of an errand and run to where her mother was staying with her current lover. She would fold paper planes and fling them as hard as she could at her mother's second-story bedroom window. She would hide underneath the shadows if her mother's lover came first to open the sliding door and then her mother came, a vision of beauty. She would tell Cassandra, in hushed tones, to go home and that she loved her. It was these words that kept her going.

Cassandra has left the care of her relatives for now, as Hogwarts is funding her schooling fees. She hopes to receive news of her mother soon, who has left England for America. She will be staying with her mother's younger brother this time. Her uncle is a mediwizard at St. Mungo's. She is apprehensive about the summer stay but knows that, when summer ends, she may return to Hogwarts again.
