Xandra 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
Quiet and unobtrusive, Xandra makes no effort to put herself out there. In fact, from her experience, it's preferable to slink through life on the outskirts, attracting as little notice as possible. She's uncomfortable when finding herself in social situations, and her words often come out sounding harsh because of her awkwardness. This tends to lead people to believe her rude and unfriendly, something Xandra would mind more if it didn't mean she was left alone more often than not.

Reaching a height of just barely over four feet when she stands up straight, Xandra's dwarfed in her oversized, second-hand robes. Her plain looks match well with her timid personality: pale skin, average features, straight black hair - all in all, nothing remarkable. The one thing that stands out, however, are her shockingly green eyes. Those who've approached her despite the reserved aura radiating off her often describe Xandra's eyes as haunting, or when they're being blunt, even creepy. This just adds to her wishes to remain unseen, rarely voluntarily making eye contact.

When Xandra first received her letter from Hogwarts, she was ecstatic. A home for the majority of the year, warm meals, what more could she ask for? The magic was never a large part of her decision. Raised in the muggle world, Xandra thought of magic as card tricks and pulling rabbits out of hats. Her surprise, therefore, upon arriving in Diagon Alley for the first time, was immense. Though she's seen a good deal more of the kind of magic the wizarding world actually entails, Xandra is still awed and amazed by each new thing she learns, each new display she sees in the hallways of Hogwarts. Her eagerness to immerse herself in this new world landed her a spot in Ravenclaw. However, while she exceeds in potions and herbology, Xandra sometimes questions the Sorting Hat's decision as she struggles through Transfiguration.
