2 Favourites
Samantha Halfward is my FC from my Harry Potter fanfic “Sundered Blood” ([link]). (However, she does have the potential to become an OC with her own independent universe.)

Age: 20
Height: 5’ 8”
Occupation: Maid and Guardian of the Grounds at Hogwarts
Likes: cooking, cleaning, Harry and his friends, nighttime walks, lavender, ballroom dancing, drawing, hot chocolate, flying
Dislikes: Voldemort, Death Eaters, the Ministry of Magic, enclosed spaces, iron
Personality: quiet, observant, calm, gentle, hardworking, maternal, very polite, sometimes naïve, fiercely loyal to those she considers family
Love interest: Sirius Black

Samantha is a maid who has lived and worked at Hogwarts as long as she can remember. Dumbldore took her in after her parents were killed by Voldemort. Voldemort also blinded Samantha with magic, so she moves around the castle by sound, smell, and touch alone. However, Samantha has several unusual abilities which make up for this handicap, including the ability to do certain spells without incantations or the use of a wand, and an ability called “wizard sight” which allows her to “see” for short periods of time, although this effort gives her bad migraines. Despite her amnesia about her parents and her past, Samantha is content with her way of life. But things begin to change and old hidden memories begin to surface when she becomes friends with Harry Potter and starts discovering the secrets of her own past.

Behind Her Name:

“Samantha” means “listener”
“Halfward” is a last name given to her by Dumbledore, “ward” because she is under his protection and “half” because…well, you’ll have to read the story to find out!
