Character Information

Name: Bathilda Bagshot
Aliases: -
Birthday: May 28th, 1860
Position: Author & Magical Historian
Lineage: Pure-Blood


While the years have decidedly begun to take their toll on this elder woman, Bathilda carries herself with the stature and aplomb of one far younger, a natural air of curiosity and energy still abuzz about her softening form. Her features, in particular those sharp blue eyes, still bear traces of one who was handsome, in her day, and she plainly still takes a great deal of pride in her appearance judging by that neatly pin-curled hair - a hint of blonde still apparent within the silver-grey - and those plucked, arching brows.

Her clothing choices tend toward rich fabrics and luxurious hues, perfectly embodying a cultivated impression of professionalism and wealth. For now, a smart overcoat of plush maroon velvet, adorned with a sparkling brooch, is worn atop a blouse of dull bronze and a prim skirt a couple of shades darker, with low-heeled pumps of tan to complete the ensemble.
