Nymphadora Tonks
PB: Kate Winslet

Name: Nymphadora Tonks
Birthdate: April 3rd, 1973
Age: 23
Bloodline: Half-Blood. Her mother, Andromeda Black is pureblood. Her father, Ted Tonks, was muggle-born.

Occupation: Auror and member of the present-day Order of the Phoenix. Part of the Advance Guard that helps Harry in his escape from the Dursley house. Fought at the Department of Mysteries battle and was seriously injured.

Appearance: As a Metamorphmagus, Tonks can assume many different appearances. Her actual appearance is that of a pretty, young woman with a pale, heart-shaped face. She's about 5'6" tall, but can change her height as easily as her hair color. She chooses a hair color, style and eye color based on mood, duties or whim. She wears colorful, casual, and punky clothing when off duty. Tonks is usually seen wearing biker boots, converse sneakers, or combat-style boots unless the occasion calls for more formal footgear, and usually a long black trench coat. One can always count on Tonks to have a rather unusual sense of style.

Personality: Serious when needed, but also compassionate and caring, Tonks draws people to her as naturally as she breathes. When at her best, she's fun, outgoing, and sharp as a tack. At her worst, she's moody, tired, and impossible to talk to. She is the ultimate Hufflepuff – loyal, just, hardworking, and caring, almost to a fault. Tonks gives people a chance, but if they blow it, she doesn’t forget it. People that do not know Tonks well think may think she is too carefree and open, but she’s actually very well aware of the Darker side of life, given that she’s both watched friends die and hunted people down during the war. She drives herself hard, but she knows when to relax and have a good time. She's tough.

Family: Parents are Ted Tonks and Andromeda Tonks(previously Black, before marriage). Tonks is an only child. She inhereted a passion for literature from her muggle-grandparents who were book-enthusists. Tonks sees her Mum weekly, over tea and a Muggle movie every Sunday afternoon. She is close with her mother, even though she is much more high-matinence and often casts somewhat condescending and picky comments about Tonks' chosen dress and changing hair colors.

Education: Attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry 1985-1991. Proud member of Hufflepuff House. Excelled at Charms, Transfiguration, DADA, Potions, and Herbology. Attended Auror College from 1991-1994, finished near the top of her class, despite her clumsiness. While in Auror College, concentrated her studies on Combat Techniques and Spell Creation.

Alliance: Auror and Member of the Order of the Phoenix since her graduation in 1995.

Romantic History: Tonks can count on one hand the amount of relationships she's had in her lifetime. The majority of these took place in her later years at Hogwarts. She had a brief attraction to Charlie Weasley, but it didn't last too long. She was usually very fickle in her choice of males. In Auror school, she had a fling that lasted significantly longer than the others in her Hogwarts days. She's never been in love, and never been too serious in her endevours. Till Remus Lupin.

Books: Anything and everything from muggle fiction to wizard non-fiction. She has a fondness for Shakespeare, although one wouldn't guess that she would.
Colors: Pink, violet, red, yellow, green, blue... ah, hell, all of them.
Food: Anything different. She likes to switch it up as much as possible. Thai food always keeps her happy.
Drinks: Firewhiskey, cheap muggle beer, expensive wizard wines.
Music: Anything rocking with a female-lead, The Weird Sisters, plenty of muggle-punk, and plenty of oldies. Especially The Beatles.
Ideal Evening Alone: Reading in the splash of color that is her small bedroom in her small flat. Incense burning, hot herbal tea or a beer at her side.

Boggart: Vampires.
Dementor: Feelings of being alone and forgotten.
Patronus: A rather large Hyppogriff.
Wand: Willow, 11 1/4 inches, inflexible, dragon heartstring.
Familiar: None at the moment, although she's known to take in stray animals, magic or not.
