maerad is a 19 year old (DOB: September 23, 1998) muggle-born witch living in Hogwarts. She wields a 12½" Yew, Dragon Heartstring wand, and is a member of the unsorted masses of Hogwarts students just off the train eagerly crowding around the Sorting Hat. Her favorite Harry Potter book is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and her favorite Harry Potter character is Hermione Granger.

About Me
Maerad's parents were a king and queen from an far away land called Pellinor. At first she lived in ignorance, thinking she was only an orphan girl. One day a mysterious stranger named Cadvan visited her and told her the truth. She left where she was living and working as a maid and followed him to the nearest big city. It was then that she found out that she was magical. Her magic was very strong, and at first she struggled to control it.
Eventually, with hard work and a bit of instruction, she began to control her power. She found her long lost brother and made many dear friends. She even saved the world from possibly doom at one point, with the help of Cadvan and all her friends. Sadly, in the aftermath, Cadvan was permanently turned into an eagle by extremely dark magic. Maerad searched far and wide for a remedy before deciding to spend a few years of her life as a normal girl in the UK at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was a perfect fit for her.
She settled right into Ravenclaw, and began to devour the books in the library. She doesn't stand out in a crowd much and is very private about her past. She is honest to a fault and can be incredibly fierce when something stands in the way or threatens to hurt her loved ones.
Her Patronus charm takes the form of a silvery wolf.
Maerad is pronounced (MY-rad). If anyone cares.
Maerad graduated from Hogwarts in April of 2014.
