The Grey Lady || Ravenclaw Ghost || Open
FC → Anna Paquin
Helena Ravenclaw knows that it was the right thing to do, to swear off men and their reckless ways, but that doesn’t make it easy. Her mother taught her that wisdom was a girl’s best friend and it served to be one of the best friends she ever had, but every girl has a weakness. Helena’s came in the form of Geoffrey Williams Harpson DuLoc Baron of Westley. Helena didn’t exactly fall head over heels for the Baron but she did enjoy the trips and adventures he would take her on. Spending her time with Geoffrey became a distraction from her studies, and when her grades began to reflect that fact, Helena decided it was time the two parted ways. The Baron was angry and went to her mother with the intent to have Rowena force Helena into an arranged marriage. Furious that her mother would even consider the Baron’s request Helena stole her mother’s diadem and ran away to the forests of Albania.
The Baron, of course, followed. And, when he found her in Albania begged her to come home with him. She refused, and in a jealous rage the Baron murdered her.
As a ghost Helena has been forced to look at the effect of her decision for centuries. It breaks her heart, and as the years have grown, Helena has become more withdrawn and quiet. Few people left even know her name. In her mind, her final purpose is to guide the students of Hogwarts to focus on the important things instead of allowing themselves to be distracted by the things that don’t matter.
