ɤ ›SPELL LIST:
Her goofy, apathetic and insensitive exterior acts as a protective shell because since she fears that she’ll only get hurt if she becomes close to others, which is why she tends to push others away from her. Jay is shallow and judgmental towards everyone she comes across, never holding back an insult. And she somehow always manages to worsen the offence with her careless, cheery tone; never minding the fact that she was adding fuel to the fire.
She is extremely loyal if you manage to befriend her. And though she may act inconsiderate towards her friends, she would do anything for them if the need arose. So far she only considers Artemesia close enough to warrant this sort of behaviour.
Jay is extremely ambitious, despite how lazy she can become at times. And she’d do anything to achieve her goal of becoming the most successful Auror and doesn’t hesitate to show how proud she is of her dream.
Her mischievous nature often means she can be found hiding around corridor corners or somewhere secluded, thinking up new schemes to prank others with.
But before then, Jay’s father had grown increasingly suspicious and paranoid as time went by. He occasionally caught glimpses of levitating objects and oddly paranormal activities out of the corner of his eye. At first he dismissed it as being a drunken delusion but the more frequently he came across the occurrences the more he came to question. And then the Richard’s letter arrived. Jay’s mother had little choice but to explain her status as a magical individual when Brad threatened action. Confused and outraged by the revelation that not only was his wife a witch, but his son a wizard, he left the house in a hurry and came back in a couple of days, in a drunken haze. Aside from Brad's sudden withdrawal, denial and drunkenness, the days progressed much quieter than before, albeit for a few verbal fights with his wife.
Eventually the day, before Richard was supposed to go to Hogwards, came. All of the frustration that had built up in Brad just exploded and he lashed out at Dick in a drunken frenzy but their mother desperately intervened, jumping between the two with her mind set on disapparating away from her children to keep them safe. But she’d been too distracted to concentrate properly causing her thoughts to become unstable as she instead apparated them to a height of about 30 meters in the air before they plunged to their death.
Living through their parents’ untimely death was definitely an earth-shattering experience for both children. The whole incident caused the dormant magic inside Jay to spark uncontrollably and break anything in her vicinity. Meanwhile, her brother, Dick, closed in on himself in shock and didn't speak to anyone for a few weeks. Their parents’ longtime friend and wizard, Alfred, took them in shortly after and explained how magic and the magical world worked.
Growing up with a boy's name led to Jason being bullied and ridiculed by the other children, which in turn made her harden and retaliate in the only way she knew how to : by playing tricks and pranks. Causing her to be further disliked by the others and often ignored, which served to add fuel to the fire and caused her actions to become more pronounced in order to gain attention, thus her brash and loud exterior.
By the time she received her Hogwarts letter, her brother was just starting his last year. The summer before, Dick surprisingly found a ferret in an alley trashcan. He fed it some food he had on hand and left it alone afterwards, but the critter managed to follow him home so he decided to take it in and gift it to his sister to take care of. Jason named the ferret Timothy on a spur of the moment decision and ever since then, wherever she went, Tim followed not far behind. That was one of the best days of her life, with a letter in one hand and a new pet in the other, she'd squealed all day in happiness and eagerly awaited the 1st of September.
When the time came, despite her happiness and eagerness, she was a ball of nerves on the inside, wondering if she'd fare well and if she'd make it into her brother's house - Slytherin. Jason had felt jittery and flustered walking towards the stool and hat, although she managed to somewhat calm herself down once she noticed her brother's supportive smile and thumbs up. Putting on the hat and sensing the unfamiliar touch in her mind, she'd nearly screamed aloud in surprise. Almost instantaneously, a soothing voice spoke in her mind, assuring it meant no harm, and a moment later that same voice sounded in her ears, eliminating any fears and doubts she had, roaring a clear 'Slytherin'. She'd seen her brother's huge grin at the table she now belonged to and she'd practically ran to his side in excitement.
