Character History:

Ariyann Rose Lynch was born to an accountant father and gardener-slash-plant-nursery-worker mother in the Scottish countryside on January 24, 2004. Her childhood was spent in a variety of elementary schools and a short stint homeschooling as her mother toyed with alternative, new-age education. Ari also spent a considerable amount of time outside, as her mum loved to work in the garden; thus her girlish sensibility is marred by her love of climbing things, falling in dirt, and chasing unknown animals into strange territory.

Ariyann's magical ability manifested in her ability to make things grow — her mother just thought it was an inherited knack for gardening, but the letter delivered by owl on Ariyann's eleventh birthday suggested otherwise. Given her educational history, Ariyann and her mother were all too enthusiastic to go off to wizard boarding school.

Ariyann was sorted into Hufflepuff and spent most of her days at Hogwarts like most students. She excelled at Care of Magical Creatures, Herbology and Charms; her less-than-stellar subjects included History of Magic, Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions. Starting her third year, she played Quidditch — though not very aggressively, as she kept to the post of Keeper. She went on to obtain a handful of N.E.W.T.s and a position in the Ministry's Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, where she happily works today.


Ariyann is bubbling with girlish innocence. She is quick to laugh at any situation — though her laugh is less of a guffaw and more of a giggle. She has the blessing of boundless optimism and is always looking to make the best of any situation. Her optimism, however, is a shield that hides her ability to hold a mighty grudge.

Her sweet personality is magnified in the presence of her darlings, the assorted and sundry magical creatures she works with and around on a daily basis. If there was one person who could look cute and happy while giving an irate dragon an enema, it would be Ariyann. Her ability to hold grudges extends to her determination, a smiling kind of obstinacy.
