Main Plot RoleEdit

Emma is a dragon rider, and is one of the original Order of the Phoenix members. She was one of the six who resurrected the group from its ashes. Additionally she is the Head of the MLE division, which is a part of Magical Law Enforcment.

Emma encountered her dragon for the first time by mere accident, when she entered into Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop and encountered Sean Truxell, who appeared to be rather annoyed at an egg in his possession, one that had just started hatching in the middle of the store, when he'd merely gone into it for a quick errand. The egg had been laid by an older mother on the dragon reserve he worked at, and as a result of the mother's advanced age and an injury she had sustained it was very unlikely that the mother would be able to protect her egg from rival dragons on the reserve (dragons after all, are known for killing the young and stomping on eggs that were not their own), so Sean had been the dragon handler tasked with taking care of it for the time being until it hatched. Like what is done at Muggle zoos, this meant taking the animal with him nearly everywhere (or in this case the egg itself). Emma identified with the egg and the poor mother dragon immediately, on account that she herself was beginning to feel her biological clock tick, and was concerned that she would not have children of her own unless she took immediate and decisive action, Perhaps it was this identification, and perhaps not, but as the egg began to hatch and wound up 'distressed' because it could not break through the shell by its own strength alone, Emma suddenly began to form a bond with the unhatched dragon. She began to hear its distressed thoughts, and upon its safe hatching it immediately nuzzled her.

The dragon, as it turned out, was a crossbreed of a Common Welsh Green and a Schwarzwald Silver. It had the general appearance of a Welsh Green, thought its a little broader and its snout is a little longer. Its scales gleam with a green-silver hue, and it has yellow-gold eyes. Emma's dragon's name is Gawain, and it has a relatively peaceful demeanor.

Emma wound up becoming its surrogate mother, hiding the dragon within her 'slighty improved attic,' and then at the dragon attack at Hogwarts in Dragon Year 8 Gawain and Emma assisted in rescuing people trapped within the Great Hall.

Major Event ParticipationEdit

  • Accromantula Attack on Hogwarts
  • Cwm Y Dewin Cud ~ Burn it to the Ground ~ The Order of the Dragon's attack on the all wizarding village that the Minstry was opening, at its grand opening.
  • Halloween Night on the Ship of Ghosts, when spirits of those who had been killed in creature wars of the past attempted to warn the key players in the upcoming war by visiting and possessing them, so that they would be prepared for what was to come. Those adults who were lured onto the ghost ship in this manner lived how those spirits died, were forced to see those they could not live without dead, and were forced to admit things they would otherwise never admit.
  • Dragon Attack on Hogwarts ~ Hogwarts was destroyed, as a point by the darker creatures of the world that they can and will destroy wizarding kind if they stand in their way.
  • The Grady manor altercation ~ The Order of the Phoenix ambushes the Order of the Dragon, as the latter attempted to gather dark items that had been left behind at a manor once belonging to a famed dark wizarding family.

Adult BackgroundEdit

Relationship Status/Married? Engaged to Riley Anderson

She used to be married to childhood sweetheart Gavin Montgomery and they were together for several years. Then Gavin was bitten by a werewolf and shut everyone out including Emma. They argued an drifted apart and in the end Emma couldnt take it anymore. They separated.

Emma had only been single a year or so before she visted a local funfair and met Riley at one of the game stalls. She was throwing a baseball at a target and missed terribly, hitting him instead. The night Riley ended up coming back to hers and spending the night.

Since then they had the odd tryst and became close friends. They tried dating for a little while and when Emma's father got ill and she went to stay at her parents' for a year to help nurse him, and help her mother adjust when he died, Riley thought she wasnt coming back. He moved on and so when Emma returned a year later, he was with someone else.

This stirred a little friction between them for a bit but they quicly rebuilt their friendship. Emma still had feelings for Riley but he wouldnt persue anything . He didnt want to hurt her again and he didnt have much faith in her sticking around.

After a few years, Emma bought a date with Trever Raines at a date auction and dated him for a little while. Meanwhile Riley was seeing Mackenzie Hartell. One evening when Emma had made a brief comment about her feeling for Riley ,she was dragged back to his to explain and told him she loved him. Her feelings were returned. Still though, Riley wouldnt persue it as they were both seeing different people.

It wasnt until months later when Emma decided she wanted kids and, having Kyla and Riley round hers, decided to tell Riley she was thinking of IVF, he suggested she have a baby with him. What's more, he also proposed. The rest is history.

Memorable QuotesEdit

"Somehow I don't think we'd even need to tell them," she pointed out, eyebrows raised in amusement, flicking her wand in the man's direction with a cuffing charm. "I'm in your shirt, you not even wearing a shirt and he's in cuffs. Reckon they'll think we'd had a field day." ~ from A-Maziing! Maze at Longleat Safari Park!


Yes, certain activities. You did ask but I’m saving you the costly inconvenience of therapy in later life by not going into minute details about it. ~ from Let's See If This Can Make You Twitch (owlery thread)


Why did I shut him out of my bedroom? Um... because I was getting changed? Because I threw his wand out into the hall with Artie and wanted to see if Artie would eat him when he tried to get it back? I painted him because... I was painting my living-room and thought he needed a bit of colour and he painted me first... Um... If I gave you the whole truth you might gag, yeah... just depends how scarred for life you wish to be. If you turn me into a voodoo doll, I’ll stop sending you those burnt treats you like so much. Today, its half an attempt at a Victoria Sponge Cake. Let me know if you like it. My first attempt it’s just sat out in the grass. The seagulls won’t touch it. ~ from Let's See if This Can Make You Twitch (owlery thread)

Friends

Whilst Emma had several close friends that she made when a student at Hogwarts, after her first marriage to chilhood sweetheart Gavin Montgomery ended, those friendship fizzled out.

Emma has since started afresh. Whilst she might only having a small group of very close friends, Emma would pride herself on being a friendly person and having lots of friends. Riley Anderson has always been her best friends and over the years she has grown close to Kani Allen. Most of the friends she has made since her divorce have been through work and the Ministry and Order of the Phoenix. Although the current friendship she had with Mackenzie Hartell is currently mending as is her friendship with ex-boyfriend Trever. She has also recently befriended Mackenzie's brother James Devlin.
