Finite Incantatem:Counterspell - Counters a spell as it is being cast, or cancels an ongoing magical effect. Expelliarmus:Disarming Charm - Causes the target's wand to fly from their hand. With sufficient power behind it, a Disarming Charm may throw a victim back forcefully. Disarming Charms are mutually offsetting - when cast against each other, they generally deflect. The Disarming Charm is also an effective counter to many spells. Avis:Flocking Charm - Conjures a flock of small birds that emerge from the caster's wand. Homorphus Charm:Nonverbal - A charm that forces animagi - and possibly werewolves as well - into their human form. Protean Charm:Nonverbal - Allows magical copies of an object to be modified by modifying the original. Revellio:Scarpin's Revelaspell - Analyzes the special properties and enchantments affecting a magical item.

Briony is characterized by her incredibly passive behaviour. Due to her upbringing by an eccentric family, she became rather accustomed to being the calm after the excited storm that came with her parents, brother, and cousin. Another effect was her slightly motherly nature; she tends to look after others.
Rather mature, Briony is incredibly polite and graceful to the extent that people are somewhat intimidated by her (even though she likes being in their presence) which leads to them avoiding her often. She's very gentle and turns child-like when around animals or sweets. However, even with her soft-like demeanor, Briony is firm in her decisions. She becomes incredibly peeved by people who lack confidence and ambition; she prefers people to be certain of themselves. She's the kind of person who doesn't take any sort of nonsense.
Because she personally loathes the uncertainty and falseness in others, she subconsciously speaks rather bluntly and straightforwardly. She says exactly what she means and says it earnestly. However, she doesn’t hesitate to lie if it works in her favor, she is a Slytherin after all.
Albeit keeping an open mind, Briony still is slightly vain having a preference over beauty. Despite her pickiness, she enjoys people very much. She's not very social and does not speak more than she needs to when conversing, but she enjoys having company around because of her being an only child. Because of this, Briony is also naive and innocent. She likes to inventory everything she learns about a person when she meets them so don't be too unnerved by her lingering stare; she's an observer.

Briony is of both Chinese and Irish descent. Her mother was of a long line of Chinese purebloods that settled in France long ago. Lian Chen attended Beauxbatons Academy of Magic like those before her and was raised in a mixture of French and Chinese traditions. Hence, she was of a rather high status. Despite the grace she was brought up with, Lian was still very quirky and outgoing. She would have been placed in Ravenclaw had she attended Hogwarts. She assumed a career in the Department of Mysteries at the Ministry of Magic. Briony's father was the youngest from a pureblood family in Ireland. As Scotland was much closer, Seanan Teague attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As a pureblood, his status was equal to that of Lian's and he was sorted into Slytherin, the house of the cunning. He was incredibly smooth and charming and a very warm-hearted and genuine person. He was a very witty character and once he graduated, he elevated his position in the Auror office quickly due to his brilliant plans.
Lian and Seanan met through his travels. Seanan was of traveling in France and happened upon a gala which he was invited last minute after charming the couple that hosted it. There he ran into Lian. Lian was immediately awestruck by his carefree aura and his spontaneity as the night went through. Seanan was equally as infatuated with her and after the night ended, he escorted her home. After that night, Seanan wooed and courted Lian until her parents approved and they soon married. A year into their marriage, the bore a son named Brian Lee. Two years later they then had a beautiful daughter whom they named Briony-Lin. The young parents settled in France whence they decided to have Briony study at Beauxbatons like her mother had for half her education and later they would move to England where they could be closer to Hogwarts where Briony would then finish her education as a witch. Brian had made it through two years at Beauxbatons before deciding he'd rather attend Hogwarts instead, despite the distance from France.
While Briony was only 4 years old, her cousin Elise Poole had moved in with her family. Elise's mother, Seanan's sister, and her father had passed away from an Auror mission and her closest immediate family had been the Teagues. Seanan and Lian were ecstatic to have Elise move in with them. They treated her like she was their daughter and nothing less and Elise was a pleasure to have around.
Elise was 9 years older than Briony, but rather than an idol she looked up to, she was simply her favorite person. Elise was already a 3rd year at Hogwarts when she moved in so she had many stories to tell. Briony grew to have a guilty pleasure for hearing stories and gossip because of Elise. Seanan and Lian were already eccentric people and were incredibly active. Seanan went for what he wanted and Lian, although much less brash and a tad less aggressive, was also a go-getter in a classy way. Brian was sure to add to the excitement with his charming ways and cunning little personality. With the addition of Elise who was not only an extrovert, but also highly intelligent and wore her heart on her sleeve, the household was very exciting. Briony adapted to this environment by becoming extremely passive and calm for whenever a heated disagreement might have occurred.
Although Briony had Elise as a surrogate sister, Elise spent almost all year at Hogwarts. Her parents were aware that their jobs kept them busy so they first gave Briony a puppy as a companion at the age of 5. Soon it grew into her own personal zoo where she had a multitude of animals and her love for animals was equal to the love she had for people. Brian always seemed to be off with his playmates and at such a young age was sure to stay away from Briony to avoid "cooties".
By the time Briony was 11 and received a letter to attend Beauxbatons, Elise was already 20 and traveled around the world in search of dragons. She brought home a camera for Briony with the first few photographs already on the film of dragons doing fantastical things. This explains why Briony constantly snaps shots of her life without others knowing. She finds pleasure in keeping memories in moving pictures. Brian has already made the decision to transfer to Hogwarts by then and Briony hardly saw anything of her brother besides the summer. He stayed with Seanan's brother during the holidays.
At Beauxbatons from her first through fourth year, Briony became very elegant and polite. The French school created a high standard which stuck with Briony unto her start at Hogwarts. She subconsciously became vain, but the vanity was harmless as it did not affect her opinions of people. However, her inexperience with people made her very naive when meeting new people with the thought that there were no completely evil people in the world. Her innocence never changed.
When Briony finished her fourth year at Beauxbatons, she received another letter from Hogwarts notifying her of the supplies she was required to have for her first year at Hogwarts and fifth year of education. Seanan and Lian excitedly brought Briony and her animals to England where they're living now. Brian has returned to staying with his immediate family as well. Before the first day of school, her parents gave her a pet kitten; black with a white stomach and white front left paw. Briony named him Willem and happily brought him with her to the start of a new school year. Briony was sorted into Slytherin, her father's house, and the house her brother was currently sorted in. She tried for the Slytherin quidditch team and was quickly accepted as a new chaser.
ɤ f a m i l y :
mother: Lian Chen-Teague (lien) - 39 years old; quirky and mature, she has a very serious yet cute mother type of quality to her and she’s very in love with Seanan. She works in the Department of Mysteries at the Ministry.
father: Seanan Teague (shay-nen) - 41 years old; a trickster but good-natured, he’s very tactical and is thoughtful of everyone. He loves Lian to death and is very affectionate towards her and his family in public. He is a very defined Auror and is in high ranks.
cousin: Elisabeth Poole-Teague - 25 years old; her parents passed away in an accident when she was only 9 so she moved to live with her closest relatives, the Teagues. Seanan was her mother’s younger brother and aren't old enough to be her parents, so Elise tends to just call her adoptive parents by their first names. Due to the lax atmosphere and the eccentricity of the household, Seanan and Lian don’t mind. She currently travels the world with Brian and a few other companions to find and train dragons.
brother: Brian Lee Teague - 18 years old; charming and cunning, embodies almost everything Slytherin House prides itself in. He’s very protective of his younger sister and is rather popular among girls. Despite this, he’s still a rather calm and collected person and isn’t an extrovert. He just graduated from Hogwarts this past year, and is currently traveling with Elise learning how to train dragons.
