Name: Sariah Liane Coltum
House: Sariah was Hufflepuff and a prefect
Homeland: Originally, the USA (Seattle, Washington) She now has a home in Nottinghamshire, England.
Personality: She is fun loving, but knows her limits. Although, she has been known to do crazy things for the people she loves, and she gets a little weird when she's hyper. She has a funky sense of humor, and her cat Goldbloom follows her nearly everywhere she goes. She easily develops crushes, but she has a long time relationship with her boyfriend Matrim Duxley. She is usually shy when first meeting people, but her tender heart gets the better of her. Family comes first, and to Sariah, friends usually count as family. She does fight with her sister, and may go too far with revenge, but she truly loves her sister more than anyone else. And oh, her favorite color is forest green.
Weaknesses: Her fear of change and new situations often keeps her from trying new things. Her determination to achieve perfection takes toll on her health, and her unwillingness to bend can push others away.
Strengths: She's not a quitter--which can also be a weakness, as she'll often try so hard that she ends up putting her own safety at risk. She has a heart for people--when others hurt, she hurts as well. When it comes to obeying rules, she doesn't let her shyness keep her from doing what's right.
Mother: Jenna Landers was a hippie. She spent her time writing novels and drinking chai tea, when she wasn't worrying about her kids being away from home. She was a Muggle, and tended to be more leanient with the kids than Kevin, her husband. When Sariah was a fifth year, both her parents were murdered by Robin Abraxis, though the Ministry thinks it was Ben, Robin's brother.
Father: Kevin Coltum used to work for the Ministry of Magic as a bodyguard for the Abraxis family. (The Abraxis' oldest son's friend (Robin Abraxis) was a Death Eater until he was put in Azkaban; and Robin's family turned in a number of his fellow Death Eaters, now Lord Voldemort's disciples are seeking revenge on the family.) Kevin was an animagus, he could transform into a kneazle. He was murdered by Robin Abraxis, though the Ministry thinks it was Robin's brother, Ben.
Triston Donald Coltum, served time in Azkaban for association with Robin Abraxis, but was released as he never actually committed a crime. Triston is like a second Father to his three younger siblings, though he too can be a goof-ball. He is usually the only one who can get Ben to do anything, including getting up in the morning. He is seven years older than Sariah. He is now the legal guardian of his younger siblings.
Benjamin Christopher Coltum, was two years younger than the twins. He had a crazy sense of humor, tended to be a bit immature and at times selfish, but he was brave in the face of trouble. He was killed by Robin Abraxis, though Ben's family does not know this.
Sister: Jaden Kathleen Coltum. She is the fraternal twin of Sariah, and also attends Hogwarts. (See Jaden's profile
Half-sister: Taryn Elizabethe Coltum. Kevin, as a gift to a friend of the family, donated his sperm, resulting in Taryn. She and her mother moved away after Taryn was born, so Jaden, Sariah, Ben and Triston never got to know their half-sister. They knew of her existance, but until Taryn came to Hogwarts, they never had any sort of a relationship with her. Taryn's mother died of cancer, and so Taryn was sent to live with the Coltums in England.
(For more on Taryn see her profile
Sariah has two Aunts: Pandora Flora Coltum. Pandora loves plants, is unmarried, and is one of Sariah and Jaden's favorite persons. Pandora teaches Herbology at Hogwarts, and Sariah does better in the class than Jaden.
Catherine Clark was Jenna's twin sister. She is quite the opposite of Jenna, in that she's straight-laced, conservative, and estranged from the family. She has one daughter, Katie.
Pets: One orange cat, "Goldbloom".
Favorite Class: Charms
Other Information: She was the Captain of the Hufflepuff Cheerleading Squad , and a member of Serpensortia. She loves all animals, even those that some might deem as scary or gross.
