|Name:||Tracey Ann Davis|
Full Name: Tracey Ann Davis
Age: 17 (Turning 17 just a few days before school starts)
Date of Birth: August 30, 1980
Allegiances: A loner by nature, her only true allegiance is to herself. She has limited sympathizes with both the Death Eaters and the Order of the Phoenix and has yet to really decide how she really feels about the things she strongly disagrees with.
Special Skills: Tracey is amazing with Potions and Herbology. Though not given much respect by Professor Snape, at least to her face, Professor Slughorn believes her to be the best Potions student he has had since Severus Snape and Lily Evans.
Wand: 9” Hemlock, sinew from a Succubus wing for the core.
Patronus: Has never produced one.
Boggart: Fire (Conflagrations)
Fears: Spiders, intense intimacy, discovery of her secrets.
Sexual Orientation: Lesbian. (Closeted, though there are rumors. She has tried to dispel them with a few casual dates with boys and has done so with some success.)
Tracey never struggled to find her place at Hogwarts, however it has not always been the same place. For her first few years, Tracey ran in the same circle as Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson and their cronies. Slowly, she started to drift away not liking the idea that she was thought of as anyone’s crony.
Having friendly acquaintance in other houses, Tracey has maintained those through the years. It helped that she is a prodigy in both Herbology and Potions. She has tutored more than one struggling student if she liked them and was in the mood to be benevolent.
In her fifth year, people in Slytherin house would pay her to brew potions or grow things for homework or extra credit. Business got so good, the little garden she had in her room could no longer keep up.
It took some searching, but it was blind luck that actually gave her a new place to grow plants and cook her potions. There is a small, cramped cubby that was likely a work area for House Elves that served just the House of Slytherin in generations past that is hidden away in the back of a coat closet off the common room. Sadly, there isn’t much room for anything else even though she cleaned out nearly ever piece of desiccated furniture she found there.
Because of her, highly illegal by school rules, little side business Tracey has a lot of play money for a student; rivaling some of the richest Slytherins. However, she spends a lot of that on clothes and such as to not appear as poor as she is.
By the end of her fifth year, Tracey had found out that her skill with potions could be put to other uses. It seemed that she had a skill for discovering new alchemical recipes and tweaking existing ones in a radical fashion. Tracey has been developing a few potions she knows will sell like crazy at Hogwarts. She began to sell them at the end of the last year to a very select few seventh years and plans to sell them much more widely this year.
She needs to find a subtle way to begin that process and has been thinking on it all summer.
Tracey has not dated much at all and that is something that she regrets now. She had one girlfriend for most of her fifth and some of the summer before her sixth year, Sara Moon a fellow Slytherin in her year. However, they were both so afraid of getting caught that they never really got close. They both decided to break it off, but neither was fully happy about it. There is still tension and they see each other occasionally but never speak.
Tracey knows it will be hard, and she still wants to be discreet, but she has decided that she does not wish to be ruled by fear and is looking to broaden her horizons in her last year at Hogwarts.
Clothing choice: Usually, she dresses very conservatively in robes and dresses that are as nice as she can manage on her limited resources. Sometimes, however, she likes to go a bit wild and dress in eccentric Muggle fashions. When she does, she wears much heavier make-up than she does when dressing more traditionally preferring her eyes to be very dark.
PB: Evan Rachel Wood
Parents: Timothy Davis (Wizard) and Julia (Gottstein) Davis
Family Dynamics: To say that Tracey’s relationship with her parents is strained would be an understatement. She practically did not speak to her father before his death and took out her frustration with him on her mother at times.
The fact that her mother is a Muggle is something Tracey holds against her father, not her mother. Her mother had no idea what she was getting into marrying a Pureblooded wizard. Tracey has no idea if there has ever been Muggle blood in her line until now, but there was none that was known so that was the next best thing and the norm for most Pureblood families except the purest like the Blacks.
Tracey has always had an affection, even a soft spot, for her mother. It bothers her that their relationship is so bad because of the one between Tracey and her father, but she has no idea how to make it better.
Her blood was a secret until her father’s death during her fifth year, which is shrouded in mystery. With her father gone, Tracey worries for her mother and is tempted to send her away for now to keep her safe. However, not wanting to scare her, she doesn’t think she is in much true danger yet, unlike the parents of Muggleborns that oppose the Dark Lord.
The Davis family has always been poor. Timothy was a low level flunky at the Ministry and her mother worked a normal Muggle job. It seems that the Davis family lost its riches over a century ago and never recovered.
Her family’s lack of wealth was often a great ammunition for her housemates to tease her. The discovery last year that her mother was a Muggle has only given them more.
Tracey’s mother understands practically nothing of the wizarding world and considers her husbands death to be a heart attack. Tracey believes that he was into something that he could not handle, likely involving Lord Voldemort. However, she has no proof.
Her mother, still unsure how to deal with her daughter, asks no questions of her life away from home. In return, their relationship is slowly improving.
