Fu Ling is quite the witch. Growing up with parsimonious parents, one would think Fu would be as penny-pinching as them. However, Fu is quite the generous teenager. She is always taking on much more than she can chew, in order to make other people happy. However she does have a breaking point when she becomes quite impatient with people, becoming quite stubborn in getting her way. Should she become really angered, people get hexed.
Like most Ravenclaws, Fu is quite clever and studious. By clever, it's not just book smarts. Her sharp tongue, and sassy lines make her quite the young lady. No only sassy, but rather honest in how she speaks to people. She will tell anyone what is on her mind if she wants to. Sugar coating anything is quite the waste of time.
Fu Ling was born into a family who claimed to be ‘pure-bloods’. Of course, like every pure-blood family there were stains on what could be the perfect family tree. Her family only counted the witches and wizards in her family starting from her great-grandfather. Her mother and father were ecstatic to have twins to continue the Ling legacy. Raising Fu and her sister Ru with the utmost care and strict rules, they hoped to mold them into mediwizards just like themselves. It wasn't until Fu was 8 years old that she showed magical properties. (While her sister Ru showed them at age 4) While playing doctor with her house elf Obba, Fu threw a tantrum when Obba wasn’t playing sick enough. The poor house elf was sent flying into the next room, and Fu was able to play doctor with the unconscious house elf until her parents returned home. Thankful that the Lings did not have a squib, they prepared her for wizarding school along with her sister. There was talk about moving so Fu and Ru could go to Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, however they decided against it, as they went to Hogwarts themselves when they were young.
During the time before her Hogwarts letter, Fu showed an interest in, not medical, but fashion. She was always creating outfits for her dolls. She took to arts and crafts classes at 10, and was starting to learn advanced sewing when her letter for Hogwarts arrived when she turned 11. However, because school started September 1st and her birthday is September 30th, it wasn't till she was 12 that she was able to go. Having a year to get her supplies, her parents spent more money getting her better supplies. One of which was her pet hornbill, Leonardo.
On September 1st, Fu, Ru, and their parents arrived at King’s Cross Station Platform 9¾. Making sure the girls had everything, and giving them a stern lesson on studying at all times. Don’t mingle so much with mudbloods, and make their Slytherin parents proud. Getting on the train with the other first years, she sat quietly with her sister by the window until the train pulled out of the station at exactly 11 o’clock. Turning to the other kids her age, she grinned and watched her sister talking to everyone who would continue a conversation.
Crossing the Black Lake, and waiting in the great hall, Fu eyed all the houses. When her name was called, she walked up and listened as the hat was placed upon her head. It took the hat a few moments, before yelling out “RAVENCLAW”. Once the hat was taken off, she happily went over to greet her new house friends. However her stomach sank, watching as her sister was placed in Slytherin. Seperated. While they may have the same faces, they were nothing alike, and it wasn't until then did Fu accept that. But, before she knew it, the great feast came to an end, and she was taken to find out where she would be staying for the rest of Hogwarts.
Classes were fascinating, and Fu did her best to have excellent marks. Not only because she had a house reputation to uphold, but anything less than the best was not acceptable in her family. Her best subjects were Charms, Transfiguration, and Astronomy. During Christmas, she chose to stay at school as an act of defiance when her parents started getting upset finding out she was a Ravenclaw and not a Slytherin. The constant "Why can't you be like Ru." "Ru made it into Slytherin." "Why you no make it." "Ravenclaw does not win house cup." It wasn't till the end of the year that they stopped harassing her about it and toned it down to the occasional snide comment.
By her third year she taking pride in divination and practicing hexes. Not only that, but she had taken over as Quidditch Commentator. Most of the school took a liking to her commentating. It was a soothing voice but filled with witty comments about the players. Near Christmas time, after getting her parents permission, she made her first trip to Hogsmeade. During the trip, she protected one of her muggleborn friends, by hexing a rude Slytherin 4th year. Soon after the slytherin apologized and they became unlikely friends. Afterwards she started making a bit more commentary on a certain Slytherin seeker. Fu then took it easy during her 4th year, knowing that all her 5th year she’d be working hard for her O.W.L.s. In 5th year, Fu studied hard, and was barely seen outside of the library, classes or Quidditch commentary. Her hard studying paid off, with all O's on the O.W.L. Exam. She accepted this pride, as her sister Rue got a few E's in some subjects. Earning her parents respect, she now intends to do what makes her happy, instead of her parents.Now a 6th year, she has taken out time to help other students for Balls, Birthdays, and other events which one must look fashionable. She is frequently helping others, and most of the time, hanging out with friends instead of studying. She hopes to enjoy the last years at Hogwarts before she goes into the world.
