Sorting Hat Says: SLYTHERIN! Cindy is ambitious, clever, and not above manipulating people to her own ends. She yearns for success above all else, and she works herself to the bone trying to attain it. Opinionated and driven, Cindy is also a gifted athlete, and she possesses a brash streak and a willingness to stick her neck out that most of her fellow Slytherins lack.
Wand: Acacia with Dragon Heartstring core, 11 3/4 inches, unyielding
Pet: Siamese Cat
Family Background: Born into a pure-blood family, Cindy has an overbearing witch of a mother (literally and figuratively) who constantly pushes her daughter to be better than everyone else. She has a healthier relationship with her father, who is an expert in martial magic.
Best Subject(s): Potions and Ancient Runes. Cindy is a precise and assiduous student whose entire academic life revolves around the fact that she is the 2nd best student in her year. Though she follows the rules and produces consistently excellent work, she simply cannot compete with Jimmy’s natural genius. She covets the #1 spot, and she resents Jimmy for stealing her thunder and for routinely endangering their teachers and peers with his careless experimentation. Nothing frustrates her more than spending 5 hours slaving away on a project, only to be upstaged the next day by a badly-coiffed idiot who produced a better project in 30 effortless minutes. Despite her feelings of jealousy, she can’t help but admire her rival at times, and deep down, she yearns for his attention. But of course she can’t let him know that – I mean, a Slytherin, crushing on a Gryffindor? Never! ;)
Hobbies and Extracurriculars: A superb broomstick-flyer, Cindy is a Chaser on the Slytherin Quidditch team. Her competitive nature and willingness to train hard make her a valuable player, and she hopes to someday become the team captain. She is an accomplished duelist, better even than Jimmy, seeing as she’s won 56% of their shared duels (a statistic she takes great pride in). During her down time, she hangs out with her best friend Libby. The girls knew each other before coming to Hogwarts U., and the fact that they aren’t in the same house has done nothing to diminish their friendship. In fact, it’s saved Cindy from the elitist “Slytherins are best!” view that many of her housemates espouse.
At her worst, Cindy is: Vindictive, reactive, and insecure. Cindy has trouble dealing with emotions in a constructive manner, and she often covers up her feelings with sarcasm or cruel words. Because she’s so concerned with how other people perceive her, she sometimes behaves in ways that are contradictory to her true thoughts and desires, and this self-deception prevents her from being as powerful as she might otherwise be.
At her best, Cindy is: Quick-thinking, strong, and resourceful. She has a gift for getting to the heart of a problem – she sees what needs to be done, and does it. She confronts danger head-on, and she’s one of the best people to have on your side when everything goes to hell (which happens. Frequently). She truly cares for Libby, and despite her rivalry with Jimmy, she has on several occasions come to his aid when nobody else would.
Random Fact: Cindy’s favorite kind of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Bean is Pecan Ripple. Unfortunately, it looks an awful lot like the “farm dirt” flavor, so…
