Single Appearance Eyes:
Soft green. Hair:
154 cm Look Description:
Ava’s short stature and round face leads people to believe that she is much younger. Upon seeing people she naturally beams at them, however, when focused on a separate task or alone her face is calculating and void of emotion. Her hair is always well kept and teased into a tame windblown design. Despite her love for the outdoors, Ava’s skin remains light. Dressing Style:
Without a dress code to follow Ava still remains in clean, well-fitting clothing. She is almost never seen in short sleeved shirts or shorts. Sweaters or sweater vests with a dress shirt under them accompanied by clean jeans are the norm. A pair of seemingly new Chucks are always on her feet. Personality Character Description:
Ava is known for being friendly and talks to a wide array of students. Most people would label her as easily approachable and someone that is confided in without hesitation. Although, her trusting nature commonly leads to her getting her feelings hurt. Growing up with her loving father has left her naïve to the rest of the world.
In regard to her friendly nature, if there is ever a conflict between her and another student, she either lets the issue continue instead of confronting it or she actively avoid the person in question until (hopefully) the problem resolves itself. When something bothers her she tends to keep quiet about it.
Her and her father have a tightly knitted relationship attributing to the fact that James was all Ava had growing up. She writes to him religiously while at school and when at home tends to stay near him instead of her step family. The joining of the two families has impacted her alone time with her father and while it desperately bothers her she stays silent.
While she is viewed as intelligent Ava often lacks the motivation to do well in school. Her school work is generally left until the last minute and hurriedly completed before the upcoming class. Whenever possible she gladly accepted her friends work to copy down. Herbology is the exception. Homework is immediately and thoroughly completed when assigned. Quirks:

No pets Background:
James Claybrook and Jennifer Claybrook are her parents. While her father is known for being a kind man, he becomes harsh with Ava’s appearance faltering, questioning about her mother, or for insisting on the use of magic in the home. Regardless, Ava has rarely seen her father angry. They have a strong bond from comforting each other throughout her childhood.
Ava’s childhood was constantly spent on taking trips through the country or engaging in outdoor activities with her father. James constantly wanted to try new things and would drag Ava along with him. Their activities ranged from attempting archery to dabbling in aquaponics for their garden.
Upon entering Hogwarts, Ava fell in love with magic, but years of gardening with her father has left Herbology her only passionate study. She neither excels nor fails her other classes aside from Occlumency with she performs abysmally in. James is discontent with his daughter’s carefree attitude in the classroom, but cannot bring himself to scold her upon seeing her happiness in Herbology. She still has no plans for her future.
