Aleks has long brown hair with dark eyes to match. She's quite tall and is apparently still growing, much to her dismay. (She doesn't want to be freakishly tall or anything, but she guesses it has its perks?) She puts a lot of thought into what she wears, but also puts in effort to make sure no one realizes she cares that much about her appearance. She's very conscious of how she looks, and when she's distracted she ends up fixing her hair and combing through it with her fingers.

Artem and Nastya Tereshchenko, the pure-blood arranged marriage match made in heaven. They fell in love after cheating on their respective betrotheds with each other as an act of rebellion, eventually they sabotaged all chances at a happy marriage with both of their pre-chosen spouses, and after it was all done they decided that they should probably just marry each other. They're in love, they're great at scheming, their parents would be happy with a pure-blood match, and they'd have attractive children. Win, win, win, win.

They had Aleksandra a year after they got married. Her magical accidents were very helpful growing up. They always involved fixing things that were broken. It was very handy. If you just put her in the general area as something that wasn't working, she'd get annoyed and in an instant it'd be fine. She was a very well-behaved kid, much to the chagrin of her troublemaker parents, but she had a loud and wild side that came out every once in a while, much to her parents' delight. She started attending Durmstrang at eleven, and she mostly faded into the background, every once in a while surprising people with how good she is at various things.

At the age of thirteen, the unthinkable happened while she was at school. Her parents were shot by a muggle while they were in a public place. It was horrible and apparently took them entirely be surprise. Aleks came home, was sent to live with her aunt and uncle, and wore black the entire summer, not wanting to go outside.

She moved to London with her squib aunt and muggle uncle. A month or so before her first day at Hogwarts, Aleks not-so-healthily decided that emotions had an Off Switch and just stopped feeling. Not literally, of course but, the parameters include this: no talking about her parents' death, and any time she thinks about it, even in the slightest, she needs to do something to get her mind off it. More often than not, that happens to be muggle school work.

Living with her aunt, she was immersed into the muggle world for the first time. It was beautiful to her how muggles could go on without any magic. (Slightly more bitter thoughts: how they could just kill with no magic.) Ever since, she's been trying to be more muggle. Not that she's forgetting the magic side of her, just that she wants to be able to survive if ever it's taken away from her one day. Always needing a distraction from her parents' death, she picked up a variety of skills pretty quickly including cooking, Mathematics (her uncle is a teacher), and singing along to Muggle music.

Now, she's in Hogwarts. Hopefully she won't fade completely into the background this time.

Aaaaannnd, fade she did not. Aleks made lots of friends during her time at Hogwarts and was the absolute life of the party throughout it all. Unfortunately, her crush also transferred in the same year, but now they're the best of friends. She's also especially close with Tori, Dex, and Brynja.

Over the summer before her sixth year, Aleks' aunt and uncle started noticing some troubling behavior and made her start seeing a therapist. Annoying. She hates talking about her feelings, and she's not even the one getting paid.

She likes foreign language films and music. (It's how she's so good at English.)
She hates the color green.
She's teaching herself how to play the guitar.
She can play the ukelele.
She barely sleeps at night but she's gotten used to it.
Her best subject at Durmstrang was Dark Arts, so her area of expertise lies in jinxes, hexes, and curses.
She's diagnosed with clinical depression the summer before her sixth year. Whatever.

Aleks is very particular about hard work and making it far in life. Being incredibly ambitious, she just wants to achieve something and be recognized as someone successful in both the muggle and magical world. She has too many things to do and too little time. This often results in not sleeping at night but a girl's gotta do what she's gotta do, right? It also helps that she doesn't like sleeping much, more often than not she dreams about things she really doesn't want to be dreaming about.

Above all, Aleks considers her number one talent to be off-ing her feelings. She hates getting emotional over things, and it is ridiculous how hard she'll deny certain emotions of hers. Aleks? Sad and mourning the death of the parents she loved very, very much? Pfffffft. Not a chance. Whenever anything threatens to make her feel any sort of vulnerable, it's off to work she goes! Studying, tinkering with something, playing Quidditch, the possibilities are endless. She doesn't even need to be good at what she's doing to make feelings go away. It's not that she's a robot or anything, she just doesn't want to talk about or do anything that might make her cry. She's tired of that, so it happens that things bore her easily if they're not distracting enough.

The muggle world presents a challenge to her. Ever since she first got a feel of it, she's wanted to succeed in it as well. The stars interest her greatly so she wants to do something like work in NASA. In all honesty, she thinks it'd be pretty cool if she lived life as a muggle because magic didn't save her parents anyway!, and hopes to go to muggle college. Her uncle's a Math teacher so she gets tutored and reads a lot over break, a testament to how much she wants to know all this.

Finally, she used to be rather quiet, but now mostly says anything that comes to mind. She easily adapts to situations she's in. Whoever she's talking to, she'll find common ground. She's charming like that, but at the same time, go against her moral code and she might be rude in calling you out, and the image she has of you might be damaged forever. Fighty but tired and self-deprecating, Aleks is quite fun to be around, but don't take my word for that.

Wand: Blackthorn, Dragon Heartstring, 11 inches. Other names for this wand wood are Warrior Wood and Weapon Wood. As you may have guessed, this wand is a warrior's wand - this could mean a fighter or a brave person with a fiery attitude. This does not mean that this wand is intrinsically evil, as it works well for many famous Aurors as much as for denizens of Azkaban. This wand wood is very loyal.

In a person, Aleks values sensitivity, willingness to go with the flow, and authenticity. However, Aleks is turned off by people who are too serious, people whose values clash with hers, and people with no sense of humor.
