About the character (paragraph answers will help determine what needs work)
Appearance: She has twisted, vived dark brown hair, which goes black when wet. Long and slightly curly, it detracts from her appearance. She has a few odd pimples scattered accross her face, and dark hazel eyes which illuminate her face. You couldn't call her pretty, as her too-pale skin and hair seem to change the whole picture, but she was mildly attractive.
Quirks: Always takes deep and loud breaths and is a negative thinker. Always thinks about the past, bites her fingernails and lets the secrets of the past cloud the vision of the future.
Special Skills: She is brave enough to cry and admit she's scared. She's pretty good at avoiding things she wants to. She is also fairly well coordinated.
Anti-Skills: She lets the tears of the past cloud the vision of the future and she does not find it easy to forgive. She was obliviated at the age of 9, and now all the dark secrets must be revealed to her again, one by one, and she's not the best for change. She finds it hard feel anything besides hate and thinks that love isn't worthwhile.

Understanding the character
What is his/her goal in life? To live to the fullest, avoid the worst and just exist- she isn't realy sure of her goals.
Would the character change for someone they liked? No, but out of fear she probably would.
What do they appreciate most in life? Peace, not that she ever gets any.
What would the character say about himself/herself? 'I'm not skilled, I'm not special and this water hole ed life is just so stupid! Everything bad always happens to me!'
What is the purpose of your OC (why are they in the story?)?
Is she undeveloped? It's a big mystery story mainly. Any tips? Mary Sue?
It sounds like so far that it's going to turn into a really good story :) I didn't think the character sounded Mary Sue at all.
Questions about the character (that'll hopefully help):
Does she have a sense of humor / is she funny?
Is she smart, average, or not so good at school?
Does she like Quidditch?
Is she popular?
Does she have more friends or aquantices tha Remus, James, and Lily?
I thought the character seemed pretty developed, I hope I didn't ask any questions that you already said. I can't wait to read the story when it comes out, the plot looks like it's going to be very interesting :)
She's very sarcastic, so her dialogue can be funny at times, but she'd rather be by herself. She doesn't understand Quidditch though she can fly quite well. Definitely not popular and she doesn't really have any friends, although Lily is kind to her, because of that James is nice to her and offers advice and Remus and her fall in love. Sirius is kinda offside in this story, although the two are on speaking terms.
Thanks Meredith! You helped me so much!
She sounds like a character. Sarcasm is difficult (well, at least for me) but fun to write, not to mention it's fun to read in a story. I'm extremely curious to see how her and Remus fall in love and how the plot turns out. So hurry up at wright this story! :cad: lol
