Year: uni first year House (Hogwarts) or Fraternity (University): VERITAS Gender Identity: Heterosexual Female Wand: willow, werewolf hair, unyeilding Played By: Dove Cameron
Appearance: Standing at a rather normal 5'6, that's probably the only normal thing about her. Her hair as a vibrant shade of purple and eyes that are almost an unearthly shade of green in the right light. She's faired skinned with several scars lined over her left cheek, but she tries to hide them with makeup, giving herself a bit more of a flawless porcelain look to her face.
Gwen hates her body. There are scars that criss cross over her torso and face that she constantly tries to hide. She uses more than a little bit of makeup to hide the marks, and she's the last person you'll ever find wearing a bikini or anything revealing at all.
Her clothes are always unique though. Hand made by herself, they're always a Trouble original with a punk flair to them. Buckles and straps galore and various shades of black, blues, pinks and purples. She absolutely stands out in a crowd. but that's not to say that she cant dress up a bit either. When she wants to feel girly, she'll go all out with heels and a pretty dress made just for the occasion.
Personality: If there's trouble to be had then you can be assured that Gwen is right in the middle of it. She almost thrives on the danger of it all, and if it manages to upset her adoptive mother, then all the better. Trouble likes to think of herself as a bit of a bad ass with a heart of gold.
She's wild, reckless, sarcastic, and more than a bit impulsive. But most of that is often there to hide her insecurities. She doesn't always think that highly of herself. She's not that pretty, not that smart, and usually not the most likable person around.
Their best subject: Magical creatures and muggle studies
A particularly worthwhile skill they have: She's a good seamstress
Their dream career/goal/etc.: Right now Trouble doesn't know what her goals are beyond making her relationship work.
Their worst subject: Transfiguration
A personality trait that gets in the way sometimes: She is a troublemaker and often doesnt know when to stop.
What failure would mean to them: Failure isn't that much of a stranger to her. If she fails, she fails and that sucks.
History: Trouble's life had never been easy. Born to Joanna Wallace, little Gwendolyn was both a blessing and a curse to the young teen mom. As soon as her parents found out about the pregnancy, they kicked their daughter out of the house to fend for herself. The baby's father had little interest in helping and that left Joanna do all that she could on her own. For a time, the young woman thought about giving up her little Gwennie, but when she first saw those beautiful green eyes and dark hair, there was no way that she could let her go.
Of course she also couldnt always provide. By the time that Gwen was five, she was already learning how to take things from the market without being noticed in order to feed herself. Half the time they were living between shelters and on the streets, but little Gwendolyn didn't care. It was all she knew. According to the small girl, all she needed was her mum anyways.
But even that would be taken away from her. It was a full moon when her mother decided that camping out for a few days was better than going to another shelter after one threatened to take her daughter and place her into foster care. When she heard the unearthly howl, Joanna didn't worry, sure that the fire would scare off the wild beast. But it was only a beacon to the unnatural werewolf. Joanna had only had enough time to jump in front of her daughter. She died protecting her daughter. And once finished, it went after little Gwen. The beast clawed and tore into the small child. It was only by luck that she was saved by a group of wizards who had heard the howl and gone to make sure the wolf didn't get to close to the muggle town.
Gwendolyn was healed at St. Mungos, but it was already too late, the curse had been passed on. It also seemed to awaken her magic as the first accident of incidental magic occurred as she made one of the bottles of medicines explode. One of the wizards who saved her had heard about the girl's poor plight and passed it along to his brothers. One of them seemed very interested and he asked about the child and heard her cruel fate. Feeling for the poor girl, he went home that night and managed to convince his wife that one more child couldn't hurt and this one really needed their love.
Two months later, Gwendolyn walked into Travers estate with wary eyes. Not once had she said a word since her attack, not even her name. No one has quite known it. Little one became the usual thing to call her while they waited for her to come out of her shell. Her new father was always trying and would make a game out of it, guessing different names that she could have. It was the first time she'd smiled. Eventually, he simply called her Trouble playfully and the name stuck, even after she finally revealed her true name.
Full moons were hard and terrifying times growing up and something that never got easier. At home, she was locked away in the basement and quickly brought back out. Once school started, arrangements were made. It was hard though and Trouble tended to keep to herself, not wanting to tell people about herself and bring their dislike. This fear turned to anger and really Trouble began to live up to her name.
Now an adult, she's a bit of the black sheep of the Travers family. While she loves her family, she tends to avoid them as well. No one needs to tell her that she's an embarrassment to the family anymore than she already knows after all. Uni though has been freeing and for the first time, she's felt her life kind of lining up. She has friends and a boyfriend in the way of Liam. Now if only she could tell him just what happened to her once a month.
