Cassiopeia Ariadne Argyris
17 years old. 7th year student. Hogwarts. Gryffindor. Ariana Debose.
Jaz. 15. CST. PM.
The mother, a fiery woman born in Sierra Leone. She was raised in poverty and fear, in the middle of a civil war that she couldn’t even begin to comprehend until her teenage years. She watched her father’s murder, followed by her mother’s descent into depression that eventually culminated in her death as a result of undernutrition and exhaustion. Asha was only thirteen years old then, and spent the rest of her teenage years as an orphan, a street rat. She fled Africa when she was sixteen years old, seeking greener pastures elsewhere. After a year, she finally settled down in the United States. It was a year later that she me...
Asha and Michaelis fell in love. Before they were even married, Asha found herself pregnant with Michaelis’s baby. Asha never wanted to be a mother. She didn’t dislike children, but she’d seen so many killed it was hard to imagine a different fate for her own child, even if they were far from the danger. Asha, in her anger, told Michaelis to get out of her house, and he did. She refused to terminate the pregnancy, having been raised a Catholic and having a moral opposition to abortion. She carried the pregnancy to term, giving birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl.
Michaelis returned a few days after the baby was born, and Asha managed to swallow her pride and let him back into her life. He insisted they keep the baby, despite Asha’s reluctance. She agreed in spite of herself. He was the one who named her:
The constant conflict at home made her uncertain and wary of any close relationships she might form. She has abandonment issues, and as a result, she struggles to form any meaningful relationships. She hides this part of her from everyone else, desiring to be seen as confident and happy by her peers. She compensates for her insecurities with a fiery temperament, lashing out at anyone who dares to question her apparent confidence. That is how she copes, as she doesn’t know any other ways to do so. ‘Fake it till you make it’.
When her name was called, Cassiopeia ran up to the front of the Great Hall, sitting down on the stool as the hat was placed on her head. It had barely touched her when it called: “GRYFFINDOR”. The house for the daring, the courageous. Cassiopeia grinned with excitement as she ran to join her housemates. These were her people. She’d fit in well here. She was sure of it. If there was one thing she had, it was nerve.
And fit in well she did. She made new friends with ease, her energetic nature and dry sense of humor endearing her to almost everyone she met. Some didn't appreciate the latter quality, but as far as Cassiopeia was concerned, that was their loss. She liked herself, and plenty of people liked her as well. She had inherited her mother’s fiery confidence—a sense of self-assuredness supplemented by a short fuse.
Cassiopeia is an extrovert through and through, expressing every thought and feeling she has. She wears her heart on her sleeve, not being afraid of getting hurt because if anyone tries, they’re going to get burned. She is a fire, and fires can either warm or burn, enlighten or ignite. She is fiercely protective over her friends and little sister, going as far as to beat people up for them. She is also loyal and, consequently, hopelessly stubborn. Once she has made up her mind, she sticks to her guns. So her sorting seems accurate in every way.
This is war, and she’ll be damned if she’s not going to fight.
