Describe the area in which s/he lives (big city, town, rural, other):"When I was living with my parents, we lived in an acreage with a lot of space. When I started at Ilvermorny, I was living in the dorms, which was almost nice. I always felt lonely, considering my parents were rarely around during my childhood. Currently, I'm living in an apartment, just near Beauxbaton, in France. It's modest, but homey. I prefer it to living with my parents."
Brief description of home(apartment, house, trailer, etc.): The apartment is small and modest: a simple kitchen leading into the living room and dining area. There is a small balcony as it's on the fourth floor of the building. There are two bedrooms, each a decent size, however one is quite cluttered, being used as a storage space. The master bedroom has an ensuite attached to it, including a shower and a tub. The shower can easily fit two people and the tub is quite deep, but the tub is rarely used.

Does s/he rent or own?"I rent the place, although my father has tried multiple times to buy me the place."
When someone walks in, what's his/her first impression?"I would hope they feel comfortable there and that I do try and keep it clean. Doesn't always work, but I try."
Does s/he live with anyone?"I live alone, unless you consider my two cats as roommates."
What about home makes it a place worth coming home to at the end of the day?"A home isn't always a place. Sometimes it can be a person."
Is this his/her ideal home and location?"I'd really like to move back to the countryside and be able to raise my family on a ranch like I was."
If not, what would s/he prefer?"I could settle for a smaller home, but I'd still like to be in the suburbs if I can't be in the rural area."
Does s/he drive? What kind of car does s/he own, if any? (Make, model, color, age, etc.):"I have a 1957 baby blue mustang, that I bought a few years ago. My dad also let me buy his old 1995 red dodge pickup truck. I prefer my pickup, just because I was always a country girl and my mustang is a classic."
What's your character's prefered means of travel?" I would prefer to drive, but both of my cars are back in America, so I usually walk."
Pets? ___ No _x_ Yes
If yes, what kind and how many? Name(s)?"I have two cats: Aries (A 4 year old orange Tabby)& Theseus (A 10 year old black cat). Theseus has been with me since I started at Ilvermorny. Theseus originally was a stray and I assumed he was abused, because he seems to hate everyone and doesn't really like people. I got Aries as a rescue that I bonded very close to.
How important are they? How well are they treated?"Both of my cats are very well cared for. I love both of them and they are both treated like kings... least I hope they are."
Play musical instrument? __ No _x__ Yes: "I can actually play the lyre quite well. No one actually knows this, because it's kinda embarrassing."

Higher Education:"I was an apprentice professor starting in 2011, before I took over as the new Divination professor in 2017. I have been a professor for a little less then a year and I truly enjoy working with my students. It's something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life. "
What’s the best part about school?"The best part of school was learning about magic and being able to control my seer ability. I really enjoyed school, which makes sense why I decided to go back and become a professor."
What were you like in high school? What "clique" did you best fit in with?"I didn't really fit in anywhere. I was kinda a loner and an odd one out. No one really liked me all too much."
List of Subjects and comments:
- Transfiguration:"Transfiguration was very interesting subject, in theory. In theory, however actually having to use said spells, are very time-consuming and incredibly scary sometimes. I found the theory of Transfiguration to be very interesting, but I was often too unsure of myself to actually be able to cast any spells. This subject was not one I got the best grade on, however most of the homework assignments I found were quite easy."
- Charms:"Charms was a lot of fun. I like to say I found charms incredibly useful and I still use even the smallest ones today. It wasn't exactly an easy class, but I found I excelled in the class."
- Potions:"Even I have to admit, I am not very good at Potions. I never had the patience for such things, which I didn't really have back in my younger days, but I think if I retook the class, I might do a little better, however my OWL mark may have stayed the same."
- History of Magic:"By the gods, if there was one class I loathed, it was this one. I couldn't remember any of the dates and everything I studied literally went in one ear and out the other. Doesn't matter what it was, It just happened that way. Annoying as hell and even more annoying when it came to my OWLs, but I just barely made it by with an Acceptable."
- Defence Against the Dark Arts:"This was actually one of my favourite classes, which is no real surprise. It combined both offence and defence, which I loved to say, helped me with my tae kwon doe, weirdly enough. I enjoyed it quite a bit and probably would have taken the job as the professor, if I wasn't a better candidate for the Divination class."
- Astronomy:"This was actually another of my favourite classes. I found I excelled at Astronomy, thanks to my father's old teachings and legends he used to tell me about the stars. The myths behind the stars gave me a bit of an advantage, easily being able to map the stars. I also had a very close old crush who used to be obsessed with the stars and I used to listen to him talk very excitedly about all of the nebulas and how many moons Jupiter has."
- Herbology:"Not particularly the best at Herbology, however it was a fun class. However I always found that replanting Mandrake root reminds me far too much of the blood curdling screams my father had been doing at my mother's passing."
- Arithmancy:"I've studied this a bit, never taken a class for this, however it has come up in my studies when I took the job as an apprentice, my old mentor had told me it may give me some ideas on how to challenge my students, least those who like Divination."
- Muggle Studies:"This was a fairly easy class, however I didn't really like it all too much. I found it wasn't all that fun. I had a lot of classmates who tended to snort or roll their eyes at the mention of muggleborns or gap at technology that they were unfamiliar with. I just rather not be treated as weird or different, I just wanna be normal ."
- Divinations:"This was where I found my calling. My Divination Professor and Mentor, at the time, was flat out fantastic. Best in her field and I felt we really connected. She help me hone my skills and helped me really connect with the seer side, however it opened up another side to myself that I'm not proud of. It's a bit like a split personality, but more sarcasm and grouchy rather then my usual self. She rarely appears, but when she does, She has pushed other friends away from me, because of what she has said, but I deal with what she says and accepted what she does. But anyways, back to the thing, yes Divination is certainly one of my better subjects. With my seer ability, we found at first, I was only able to channel a visiom through touch, whether object or person, I could potently have a vision. It's certainly annoying when I have one and then promptly pass out. "
- Study of Ancient Runes:"Runes was always fascinating to me. I always enjoyed studying them and I have been known to touch on them on a few of my classes as some runes can be used in Divination. I was ok at runes, however I do enjoy teaching them and researching themmyself in my spare time."
- Care of Magical Creatures:"Care of Magical Creatures was always interesting to me, however I never did get along that well with hippogriffs. I found they just did not like me for whatever reason. Must have been a past life that I had done something."
Current occupation (include length of time, location, job title):Divination Professor of Beauxbaton Academy of Magic in France. Started in 2011 as an apprentice professor until she took on the full time position in 2017.

I have more confidence now and I feel amazing when I teach my classes and feel I'm doing a greater good."
Theresa is the canon name. It sounds a lot like Theseus (who is who she is descended from in the actual show series.) Athena is name of a Greek Goddess of Wisdom and Battle Strategy, who's rival is Poseidon. Poseidon is also the father of Theseus, who in the tv series, Theresa is said to be the descendant of. Kore is actually another word for Persephone, which means 'The Maiden' in Greek. Persephone is also the goddess who is Theresa's mentor in the tv series, which I found is fairly interesting as well and a good connection to the canon. I also mentioned Persephone in her app as her mentor, guiding her down her path.
Theresa's patronus is a horse, which represents power, freedom and strength. I think Theresa's independent spirit shows her strength through the horse. I also considered a horse because Poseidon, Theseus's father, was also considered the "Father of horses".
Her wand is also part of how she is today. She's independent and strong master, which is why she works well with the pine wand. She is considered a little mysterious to others, who don't know her that well. I also added what her wand might be:
Personality: For her personality, I would sort of use what they described her as. She is also a Seer here, because Theresa is able to see the future. I've tried to keep her original personality the same, although with a couple minor changes. I see her as almost a Ginny Weasley, [Not exactly, but quite close], in personality and also appearance.
I also mentioned a split personality, which in canon, does happen however it does happen through the course of Season 2. It slowly develops and you can see Terra struggling and often snapping or being very grumpy towards the gods. She just wants to be normal, rather then constantly having to save the gods and the world. She wants her own life back, which is where Phantom developed from. Unlike in the series, Phantom is merely a personality that terra does not like, or a bit of a split personality, rather then an actual being taking over like she is in the series.
I also mentioned Atlanta as Terra's best friend, which is certainly true, seeing as they are the two girls in the series and two main characters. They lean on each other and I really think the redheads need to stick together to the end.
History: Her history is a little confusing at parts [Not too confusing, I hope.] I tried hard, using what I knew about her character from watching Class of the Titans and what I got from Wiki, although her family wasn't much to go on. It's kind of a sad history on my part, but here it goes. Because in the series, Canon Theresa never says anything about her mother. Not too sure why, but that's beside the point. I decided, since she is a seer, maybe 'My' (I'm going with 'my' for now) Theresa saw her mother's death and tried hard to avoid it. Sure, she was devastated, but she had time to give herself a sort of mental block to it. Her mother barely paid attention to her, so it wasn't hard to place a mental block on everything about her mother.
In Canon, there has been much debate on what day Terra's birthday is. Because the first episode was said to have been set on January 1st, and then reasonably a few days later, Theresa had mentioned it was her birthday, Many people suspect it is Janaury 3rd or 4th. I just picked January 3rd and left it at that.
In the second episode, when we first meet Theresa, we find out that she was driving her birthday gift, a red corvette down a long stretch of road, before she had a vision of talons landing on the hood of her car, which she then narrowly misses causing a car accident and Theresa landing on her feet in front of a massive metal gold bird, before being saved by Hermes and his griffens. Because Giant metal birds do not exist, I changed it to hippogriffs and had it that Terra had not escaped the car, but rather slipped into a coma. I see this being the reason for the start manifestation of Phantom, however it is not the complete cause of this. I also changed the reason for the crash, rather her just having a vision and blacking out as the car crashed.
