|Place of Birth||Wiltshire, England|
|Date of Birth||18 Apr 1977|
Before you is a young woman with long, soft white hair that tapers off at the small of her back. Long locks shimmer with bright highlights as it frames her pale face. A slender nose is the center piece of her smooth, beautiful face. Separating her bright blue eyes accented by long black eyelashes. Below her nose is a pair of full, soft lips that reveal white teeth when she smiles. The curvature of her chin leads to her slender, strong neck.
Slender, womanly shoulders lead gracefully downwards, holding the uniformly black cloak bearing the house badge on her right shoulder. A soft grey sweater covers her full chest, trimmed with deep green and shimmering silver along the collar. Just underneath the sweater is a clean white dress shirt, buttoned with pearly buttons with a green and silver tie knotted under the collar, tucked between the dress shirt and dark grey sweater. The cotton material of the sweater covers her arms, the deep green and silver hem hinting with the lean build, leading to feminine hands with slender fingers and pale, natural fingernails.
Her flat, lean stomach curves naturally under the grey sweater, the deep green and shimmering silver hem covering over the tails of the white dress shirt beneath it. The smooth curve of hips hold the soft material of matching grey, pleated skirt, the hem brushing just an inch above the knee. Her lean, sculpted legs move gracefully as she walks, calves defined beneath soft, pale skin. Leading to small feet within black shoes with enough of a heel to accent her legs.
This story starts not with the family of Zanford, but with the bloodline of Witford.
Ramona Witworth was the older sister of Rohda Witworth, two sisters that got along well though their ideas of love and life were completely different. Ramona married third generation Auror Zuriel Zanford, his pedigree and family line earning the complete approval and praise from the Witworth family, while her sister Rohda went on to marry Radcliff "The Razor" Rumple, a Gryffindor and Quidditch player moreover. And comparing to the choice her older sister had made, the Witworth grudgingly approved of the younger sister's marriage with obvious distaste.
During the late hour of April 18th, 1977, Ramona Zanford gave birth to a little girl in Wiltshire, England. The night Zarina was born is a mysterious one, the death of Ramona Zanford inevitable mere hours after her daughter is born, though whispers of suspicion circulate about the true cause of Ramona's death. No one knowing that the true blame were to be put on the shoulders of her husband, a Deatheater. As she grew, Zarina showed amazing talent in magic. Her natural charming personality and sympathy often allowed her to enrapture family members.
By the time her invitation to Hogwarts arrived, she already knew how to make several simple charms and potions And after receiving her acceptance letter, she and her father went on a special trip together, since this is the first that her father has spent time with her since she was an infant. She was delighted to find Diagon Alley opening up before her, opening so many possibilities for the future as the merchants and storekeepers advertised their products with loud, booming voices. Visiting Ollivander, her Willow wand with Phoenix core chose her, the first year books bought and robes measured for her stature. It was all very exciting to the young girl and as she waited for the first day of classes to begin, she buried her nose in her books, learning and memorizing all that she could. The sorting hat instantly chose for her to be a Slytherin the moment it barely touched her head, making her father proud for her to be a sixth generation Slytherin.
Throughout her first year, Zarina was eager to learn whatever her hands came across, her attention soon divided between her studies and the odd attitudes of some of her classmates. Social and friendly to those who talked to her, she often would find them staring, which was never unusual to her for she is used to attention. It is when boys often offered treats or to study or walk with her that stirred her curiosity, finding their mannerisms peculiar and interesting. Though being as young as she is, she did not learn until later how useful it can be to her.
Christmas of her first year, she stayed at Hogwarts instead of returning home to find it its usual empty self, her father working as always. So to pass her time, she experimented with making potions from her textbook. When she succeeded enough, she browsed through the library, finding second year potions book and deciding to read through it. That Christmas day, a large package was brought to her by owls, a present from her father. The latest racing broom on the market in 1989, the Nimbus 1700. So thrilled she was with the present that she trudged through the snow to the Quidditch Pitch to practice on her first racing broom.
The year continued and soon came to a close, bringing a slow moving summer with it. She received letters by owl often, most from boys she had made friends with, all eager to know how she was doing and if she was looking forward to seeing them in turn. And although she did look forward to returning to school, she knew that their interest are misplaced in her. Only seeing the beauty and talent, admiring from afar and only seeing what is on the surface. After all, looks are everything, right?
During the next school years, she studied and worked hard, trying out each year for the Slytherin Quidditch team, trying to earn her father's approval while using her natural charm for her own benefit. Often leading on boys, she enjoyed the attention and presents they offered her, the benefit of a studying partner in or out of class, though it always became boring in the end. There was no spark or interest, leading to the inevitable of hearts being broken.
Now being her sixth year, Zarina has intentions of studying harder than ever, wanting to become an Auror like her father. With books in one hand and a Nimbus 2001 in the other, she prepares herself for the year that might possibly decide the rest of her life.
This character is seventeen years old. Being such, there is the rare possibility that the rp's recorded here will become adult oriented and rated R. I will label those rp's as such in the title.

Memorable Moments and Quotes:
Mei opens her eyes, looking up at the finger crosseyed. Blinking the girl ahs softly and then chuckles. "Are you having fun?" Never moving from her spot she peers at the poking finger.
Zarina just smirks at her, straightening her back as she forces the smirk from her lips for her expression to become hard and serious, "Never. A Slytherin must always strive for perfection. Anything else is a distraction and a nuisance." The hard look lasts a moment longer before the smirk reappears on her full lips.
Trivia And Notes:
Zarina is the cousin of Rupert Rumple, related through their mothers.
