    Height wise, Delight is only a little shorter than normal, though she is adamant she'll have a growth spurt any day now. Her frame is matchingly slender, though she is too young to have an curves yet. She is exactly 152 cm, and right handed. What really sets her apart is the fact that, even from a when she was a babe-in-arms, Delight has been very striking. Her skin is an even cross between her parents, warm-toned and rich but lighter than her mother's, and her hair, despite being a very dark brown, almost black, takes after her father's in terms of textures, falling in only slightly unruly curls which are fortunately easy to tame. Her eyes only add to her intense appearance, being a bright hazel which complements her colouring and pretty features perfectly. Delight loves wearing bright colours and has resigned herself to corsets.

    1871- Delight was born after a relatively quick labour to Balthazar and Mary. Her parents fell in love with her immediately, and named her Delight.
    1873- Her mother gives birth again, this time to twin girls. Her parents decide it would be amusing to take the Emeraude from her name and continue a jewel theme. They are named Topaz and Ruby. Delight is too young to take much interest in them, but loves the idea of being an older sister.
    1875- Her brother Sebastian is born. This time Delight does take interest in him as she is older, but is disappointed that he doesnt grow as fast as she'd like.
    1878- Delight shows the first sign of magic by making her doll's crib rock on it's own. Magic comes relatively easily to her, and she loves showing off her 'grown-up powers' to her siblings when her parents weren't looking.
    1882- At 11, Delight was accepted into Hogwarts and in sorted into Hufflepuff.
    1884- The minister dies, and to her excitement Delight finds out her father intends to run, convinced that if he does win, she'd basically be a princess only better, cause magic. Topaz also shows magic meaning that in the autumn both her sisters will join her at Hogwarts (albeit in a rather undignified manner)
