Clothing Style
Alabama lives provocatively, and she flaunts this in her appearance. From her always changing hair to her questionable outfits, she is always changing up her looks in a desperate attempt to grasp people's attention. She is currently sporting white blonde, shoulder length hair but has previously has her hair dyed blue, dirty blonde, and multi-colored highlights in contrast to her naturally brown hair. She finds it boring, plain, and simply uninteresting. As for her chocolate brown eyes, well, she hates them as well for all the same reasons. Alabama wishes she were taller as opposed to her below average height at only 5'0". Alabama dresses like a rockstar and pretty much embodies the person she wishes she could be.

"There's not that too much to it really. My name's Alabama Grace Withers, born and raised in Queens, New York. I guess you could say both my parents were rockstars. My dad was the lead guitarist in a heavy metal band that ended up selling out a full house at Madison Square Garden. My mom was an R&B artist and she did pretty well too. Music was kind of our thing, I guess. Well, that is until I was 8. My parents were on their way back from an awards show in Australia when their plane got lost at sea- never to be found. From there I got put in an orphanage and have lived there ever since. Never once got considered for adoption, but who really cares? Sometimes I miss my parents, but maybe I'm stronger without them."

Or at least, that's what Alabama likes to tell people. In fact, her birth name isn't even Alabama. Perfectly ordinary Doris Grace Withers was born on November 2 to perfectly ordinary Ela and Brett Withers in perfectly ordinary Auburn, Nebraska. She had quite a boring childhood, really. Doris decided to change her name to Alabama when she was only 7 years old. She absolutely hated the name Doris. She found it absolutely repulsive.

Her father was the mayor of the city so her family did have a good bit of money compared to others in the small town, so Alabama was always a spoiled child. She got everything she wanted and was never told no. While Alabama liked getting what she wanted, it wasn't enough. Sure she could have any toy she wanted, but she wanted more than just materials. She wanted her parents to show her love through more than just money.

Years and years of this caused her to develop Histrionic Personality Disorder. She began to act out in school in attempts to grasp her parents attention. Her mother was the first to notice her behavior and habits were changing. She had become much more dramatic and emotional than she used to be.

Of course, dramatics should be expected from 10 year old girls, however Alabama's were so bad that she once went so far as running away from home when being grounded for acting out in school. Ela took her daughter to a psychiatrist only for her to be diagnosed with HPD.

HPD is a personality disorder identified by a pattern of exaggerated attention seeking emotions and actions. Ela and Brett were quick to realize it was their mistake that had caused this. They blamed themselves for not giving Alabama the love and attention she needed at such a vulnerable age, however it was too late.

This was about that time that she received her Hogwarts letter. This made things even more complicated. How were Ela and Brett meant to mend the relationship with their daughter if she was going to go to school an ocean away? It came to a shock to both Ela and Brett that Alabama was a witch, however they couldn't not let her go.

Words can't describe how excited Alabama was to go to Hogwarts. She felt it was a second chance to start over as whoever she wanted to be- and start over she did. She became a whole new person going into Hogwarts. Alabama started taking medication for her disorder right before she left for Hogwarts, however she started taking it less and less once arriving. She simply didn't like the way it made her feel.

Nowadays, Alabama is rarely on her medication which causes her to act out more than she usually would and lack more self control than normal. Ela and Brett are unaware of the lies and person she pretends to be at Hogwarts. In fact, they believe their daughter is getting better. In reality, the only thing she's getting better at is covering up the truth. Alabama's case is only worsening and her need for attention is increasing.

Alabama has quite the complex personality, which doesn't come as a surprise considering she has Histrionic Personality Disorder. She developed this quite early on in her life as a result of being spoiled by her parents and getting everything she wanted.

Alabama has an unhealthy obsession with being the center of attention. She will do almost anything to get people to look at her, whether it be through her dramatics or overly provocative behavior. She will even go as far as faking an illness to garner attention. Anything that gets people to look at her, really.

Alabama has a low tolerance for delayed gratification and has the tendency to make rash, impulsive decisions if it means getting what she wants. She wasn't always such a nightmare. In fact, HPD pretty much took over her life once she started displaying symptoms. It made her the attention-seeking, self-obsessed brat she appears to be now.

Alabama has trouble maintaining relationships, whether they be romantic or not. Either she'll get bored of the person or they will get fed up with her rash, over the top behavior. Alabama has never told anyone about her disorder because she is afraid of what people will think of her. She'd rather just be the brat it's made her.

Alabama is a pathological liar. It originally started off as a bad habit she had with little white lies about her past, but eventually escalated into her changing her whole life story. But as they say, once you tell a lie enough times it eventually becomes a truth.

She is merely a troubled girl who's lost in the thrill of life and sometimes needs to be brought back to reality. If you manage to get past her dramatics and understand she can't help the way she acts, Alabama will always be loyal to you through thick and thin.

Alabama is an ENTP.

skills and magical abilities
Music: Alabama has a gift for music. She has been singing for as long as she can remember and plays various styles of guitar in accompaniment. Her passion is music and it is more than just a hobby for her. She has played around with song writing a bit recently, but it is a new skill for her. Alabama likes to play classic rock and alternative rock songs on her electric guitar in her free time.

Lying: You may not think that lying would be considered a skill, but for Alabama it is. She is a pathological liar meaning she lies all the time even when unnecessary purely out of habit. It started off for her as little white lies to make her seem more interesting, but they eventually grew and grew until she began to lie about almost everything. It's impossible to tell when Alabama is lying because she is so good at it unless you happen to find a fault in her story.

Wand: Yew, Dragon Heartstring, 8 inches. Yew wands are among the rarer kinds, and their ideal matches are likewise unusual, and occasionally notorious. The wand of yew is reputed to endow its possessor with the power of life and death. However, it is untrue to say (as those unlearned in wandlore often do) that those who use yew wands are more likely to be attracted to the Dark Arts than another. The witch or wizard best suited to a yew wand might equally prove a fierce protector of others.
