Maz CowanFull Name:
Mazzabelle Krystal CowanBlood Status:
ScottishDate of Birth:
July 25, 2059Age:
Maz is tall though not gangly thanks to years of gymnastics training and dancing giving her a more athletic build. Her pale skin makes her dark eyes stand out. Usually shining with laughter or the reminder of a smile her eyes do darken slightly when she’s about to blow. Her plump lips are often stretched in a smile showcasing the perfect white teeth beneath. Long brown hair falls in messy waves halfway down her back and it generally left down unless she feels a need to get it out of her way. As far as dressing style goes Maz doesn’t really have one and will wear whatever takes her fancy that day. She has no piercings and wears no jewellery feeling that its no more than a potential hazard.Scars:
Maz has a very prominent scar that runs across her back diagonally from her right shoulder to the left of her hip - a result of a werewolf scratch when she was a child. She also has lightly scarred knuckles and the typically scarred knees of a child who would just not stop climbing.Tattoos:
Inked on the lower right side of her stomach is the Hogwarts motto written in a circle joined by a feather, inside a purple dragon sleeps. Being a magical tattoo there are smoke curls coming from the dragon's nostrils and, if tapped with a wand the feather will tickle the dragon which will rear as if to attack.PersonalityCharacter Description:
Generally Maz is a happy, outgoing loud type of person who just wants to enjoy her life while she’s living it. She doesn’t care what others think of her so she isn’t held back from saying exactly what she thinks. She’s loyal and if she befriends a person they will have found a friend who will fight to the death for them if needed. She doesn’t care about your silly little problems and troubles but if you insist on making her listen to them you’re like to get the best advice since Maz will simply tell you what’s what even if that will hurt your feelings. She loves to sing and will often hum her father’s songs to herself when things are quiet.Strengths:
Great reflexes (aided by seer abilities)

She’s just wasting timeFamily and HistoryFather:
Cat - A small German rex mimosa named Mike. Maz found Mike during the summer before her 4th year at Hogwarts. Fully grown now he can still sit in Maz's palm or perch easily on her shoulder. He has the same kind of temperment. They differ only in the fact that as a cat Mike can be extraodinarily lazy at times.
Owl - In the summer before her fifth year Maz, with extra gold in her pocket decided it was time to get another pet. The school rule didn't worry her and she was always hiding things from Jen so why not! She had intended to buy a big owl, great for postage but instead left the shop with the tiny elf owl she named Colin. He's an energetic little thing completely taken with his owner. He loves perching on her shoulder as she goes about her day, sleeping in her pocket or backpack and generally being made a fuss of.Background:
After her parents deaths at the hands of the pack of werewolves her father was speaking out against Maz lived with her aunt. The last two Cowan’s had a volatile relationship stemming from both being unable to properly cope with their grief. Though it was a hard upbringing Maz will always state she had fun and the good did far outweigh the bad.
At Hogwarts Maz tried at first to keep to herself thinking that by having no friends her secret of being a seer would remain hers. It didn’t quite work like that and soon Maz found herself flitting from group of people to group of people after finding she needed company sometimes but not the same company for too long. She got into fights, arguments and broke a lot of rules so she was probably the most surprised of everyone to receive the Head Girls badge going into her seventh year.
The only other real shock in her school life was when she was attacked and hospitalized by three Gryffindors on the muggleborn side of politics. With months lying on the ward as treatment after treatment failed to work Maz had plenty of time to plan. When finally she was able to take her revenge on those who had wronged her the result was the fall of a Minister and a prominent muggleborn activist. Maz feels no guilt about the fallout that came after, the only people she felt that should take any blame were those who attacked her and their family members for being corrupt but not smart in the covering up.
With her school life coming to an end Maz signed up for Hogwarts University where she would study Care of Magical Creatures, hopefully with more emphasis on conservation. She’s set to move into a house with the only person she counts as a friend - Tim. There are no set hopes for the future, no real dreams. Maz will just take each day as it comes and hopefully laugh a lot along the way.
