Overview

Fair skinned, short, dark headed, and hazel-eyed, Xia would be easy to overlook in a crowd were it not for the riot of colors oft seen on her person. With a penchant for vivid hair colors and clothing, she's hard to miss on the street…almost painfully so. She manages to be both graceful and clumsy, so please make sure she isn't wearing too long scarves or an overly long skirt or coat when around her. Otherwise you may find that your wine is on your lap and your fork in your hair.

  • Height: 5'2"
  • Weight: 112 lbs.
  • Distinguishing Features: Her color-changing, usually painfully bright, hair. A burn scar along her left arm - the story related to it will change every time someone asks her.

Personality

Xia is a very bubbly, excitable person. Upon first meeting her, one may think she suffers from Peter Pan syndrome, never wanting or intending to grow up. She's a talkative person who seems to have a knack for getting her way. She will commandeer entire groups of tourists to show them a fairy circle in the woods, and leave the tour guide wondering when he agreed to do so. The more one gets to know her, however, the more they realize that Xia is a thoughtful, loyal friend, who cares deeply for those around her and wants only what is best for them. She is courageous, appears to be unafraid of anything, and has an adventurer's soul. Anyone who has met her or known her for more than a few minutes would tell you that mischief doesn't follow Xia, she hunts it down and carries it with her like a banner.

Xia does not tend to let other people see her as afraid or sad, and is often the person rallying the forces for a fourth or fifth attack. She very rarely, if ever, lets anyone see otherwise, and those who do are the ones she trusts not to let others know about it. Xia is also a fairly focused person when she finds something she enjoys, and is quite knowledgeable in the fields that interest her. She values intelligence, knowledge, and understanding, and feels that a day is ruined if she does not learn at least one new thing.

Notable Skills

  • Music
    • She can learn almost any instrument she picks up within 20 minutes. A skill "inherited" from her father.
    • Mezzo-soprano singer, though has no formal training.
  • Business
    • Private owner of an expanding chain of magical beauty salons.
    • Currently has ten salons, five in the UK, one in France, one in Japan, one in China, and two on the American east coast.
    • Presumably gets her names in the papers every few months to keep her name fresh in the public eye.
  • Language
    • Fluent in English, Japanese, and French
  • Ninja Skills!
    • When she's not clumsy, Xia's actually quite the sneak. She frequently gets into places she shouldn't be, and often knows secret pathways.
    • She often uses her small size and cute appearance to her advantage, working her way into areas she shouldn't be to get information.

Magical Skills

  • Strengths:
    • Charms and Transfigurations. Highly capable with both.
      • Skill in both has earned her articles in several magazines and newspapers.
    • Ancient Runes
      • She can learn, decipher, and use runes quite well.
      • Has written a book regarding runes related to Anhuala and other ancient places.
    • Care of Magical Creatures
      • Made friends with a Diavolera, whom she named Steve.
      • Has little trouble communicating with or befriending magical creatures…even dangerous ones.
    • Flying. Xia is very at home on a broom.
      • Considered a risky flier who does dangerous things.
      • Has been called a stunt-flier in various publications.
  • Weaknesses:
    • Potions and Herbology
      • Xia did not take NEWT level courses for a reason.
      • Almost poisoned herself too many times to count in Potions.
    • Cleaning Spells. Remember that scene from the movie Sword in the Stone? Where Merlin packs his bag? Xia thinks she can do that.
      • Pro-tip: She can't.
    • Healing Spells
      • Unless you'd like your broken nose turned into a detachable one.
  • Notable Abilities:
    • Corporeal patronus in the shape of a platypus.
      • Because much like her father, Xia is adorable and cuddly, but deep down all she really wants is to poison Australians.
      • Not really…on the last part.
    • Dueling
      • She has never competed but she can hold up quite well against Izzy…at least for a time.
    • Flying
      • Xia was scouted to be a seeker for the Holyhead Harpies, Wimbledon Wasps, and the British National Team.
      • Sports reporters occasionally still mention her, even four years later, thanks in part to her occasional returns to the public eye.
    • Beautifying Charms
      • Started the beauty salon chain Every Witch's Dream, specializing in hair styling and coloring charms.
      • Expanded the chain to include other "beautifying charms and spells" for the "charm spell challenged" (not a marketing term).

Brief History

Child of Mazzy Lavine and Rebekah Addison-Lavine.

Grew up adventurous, well loved, and something of a wild child (e.g. her decision to leave home and revive her father at the age of five). Attended Hogwarts for the majority of her schooling (six of seven years). She took part in battle against Erik Calutain in her sixth year, culminating in the final battle at the Gates of Anhuala. Finished her schooling at Anhuala School of the Medium.

She traveled the world for two years with a guitar and backpack - and an Izzy- in tow. Settled in London in 2096 and began her beauty shop, but lost interest after a few months. However, her company had gained enough attention and momentum in the wizarding community that she settled for hiring a public face, and continues to control it from the shadows.

Currently she works in a wand and charm shop in Diagon Alley, taking advantage of the freedom it provides her as well as the central location.
