Born on September 13th 1979 in Paris France, during the midst of the first wizardry war, Annalisa was the daughter of an auror named Charles Turpin and his wife Elizabeth whom was a healer the family lived in a quiet small town close to Lisa's grandmother who at the time watched the young girl when Charles went off fighting Voldemort and his deatheaters until the fall of the dark lord in 1981 in which Lisa's sister Amelia was born giving the young girl a sibling and a chance for the family to live in peace with the war finally over. In 1985 Charles was called back to England to take on a position at the auror department at the ministry of magic leaving Lisa and her family to move back to Wales where she remained there until she got her letter to Hogwarts and prepared to arrive at the magical school come that September of 1991 and due to her having been born in that month, she was allowed to attend when she was twelve like her future classmate, Hermione Granger who was born the same year and month.
Welcome to Hogwarts
you've been sorted into Ravenclaw.
On September 1st 1991, Lisa arrived at train station in London for her first day of school. Going through the entrance of Platform 9 she saw the Hogwarts express waiting for it s passengers to arrive. There Charles gave her a hug telling her that he would see her at Christmas her mother and sister had given her a hug for bravery. Though Lisa was not scared to go, she was more excited than anything. Boarding the train, she found a empty seat and sat her stuff on the overhead bin above before taking a seat. There she soon met three girls whom she saw were starting their first year as well. Cho Chang, whom was a girl above her, Mandy Brocklehurst, and Marietta Edgecombe. Though Lisa and Cho did get along with one another, it was Mandy whom Lisa became instant friends with, as they shared their stories about what their lives were like before getting the letter from Hogwarts.
Cho then told Lisa what Hogwarts was like as it was one of the most magical places she had ever seen before making the young first year even more excited to go. Once they had arrived at Hogwarts, the first years boarded small boats that would take them to the castle. Riding across the water, Lisa then saw the castle for the first time ever. The lights made it look enchanting making her excited. Entering the Great hall, she saw the enchanted roof falling in love with the magic that Hogwarts was known for. Though she had read the book, Hogwarts a History before arriving at the school, it simply didnt do it justice unless you saw it with your eyes.
Gathering up with the other students, she waited in front of Professor McGongall as the sorting house ceremony started. Suddenly feeling slightly nervous, she began to wonder what house she would be getting into as both her parents came from different houses. Her father Ravenclaw, her mother was Gryffindor and her own stepmother was Slytherin.It was not until she heard the name Harry Potter that caught her attention. The rumors were true that he was indeed attending Hogwarts. Lisa knew the story of Harry Potter growing up but to see him for her own eyes made things more interesting. Watching him gets his name called and into the house of Gryffindor, It made Lisa wonder what was going to happen once she was chosen. Mandy had already been called and into the house of Ravenclaw leaving her to wait. Finally her name was called giving her the chance to walk up. Sitting on the stool, she waited as the hat was placed on her head.
For a few minutes, the hat was finding itself having a difficult choice as if she was to be in Slytherin or in Ravenclaw. Finally a house was chosen and she heard the house she was hoping for. RAVENCLAW! a big smile appeared on her face as she moved to the table and sat next to Mandy feeling better and relaxed. Lisa was excited for her first year for not only did they have a flying lesson, but she would be taking Charms, Potions, Defense against the dark arts, Transfiguration, History of Magic, and Astronomy in which Lisa fell in love with next to charms. Being a fast learner, she mastered spells very quickly earning her the title of being the bookworm of Ravenclaw. There, Lisa also became friends with Harry, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger after discovering their passion of reading and studying. By the end of the year, Lisa had come to discover that the trio had saved Hogwarts after Voldemort tried to gain the Sorcerer stone leaving the exams for the end of term cancelled as a gift for them saving the day.
For the summer of 1992, Lisa spent the summer in France with her grandmother Sharing all her adventures at Hogwarts with her friends she dreaded leaving the landscape of France to England as her life was France. As her second year started, she watched as Amelia started her first year at Hogwarts making her excited to have her sister attending in school only to see her become a fellow Ravenclaw along with her making the school even more fun for the second year student. Not only was it a new year for Lisa, but a man by the name of Gilderoy Lockhart came to Hogwarts as the new professor for defense against the dark arts. With his highly popularity of being a brilliant wizard, it was no problem for the many young girls at Hogwarts to develop a crush on the wizard. Lisa on the other hand saw right through him knowing he was a fake and not gave into his so called ways of teaching magic. With the trio starting their second year, things around the castle started to happen. By Halloween, the caretakers cat was found petrified along with the walls vandalised. Looking on the walls, she watched carefully as the words "The chamber of Secrets has been reopened" was written along it. During a transfiguration lesson, Hermione asked a question that even got Lisa to wonder after listening to Professor McGongall about it. The chamber of secrets was to be the home of a monster that only the heir of Slytherin could control. With that, everyone started to think that it was Harry Potter who was the heir after speaking to a snake in parsletounge during a duel lesson. Naturally Harry thought that Draco was the Heir of Slytherin which caused the trio to produce a potion called Polyjuice Potion.
A few months later after a few other students were attacked, Hermione herself got attacked after discovering it was a basilisk that was causing the attacks. Using the information they had gathered, Harry and Ron were able to successfully put an end to Voldemort's plans to resurrect his body through his memory stored in an old school diary. Much to their both disappointment at the end of term, Dumbledore cancelled the student's end of year exams as a special treat for the trio's accomplishment in solving the mystery of the chamber of secrets. In the fall of 1993 marked the third year of Lisa's education at Hogwarts. Lisa was aboard the Hogwarts Express when it was stopped and infiltrated by Dementors in search of the murderer known as Sirius Black whom had escaped from Azkaban. Harry was the only one whom had fainted in the presence of the dementor which made things interesting. After the sorting ceremony, Dumbledore announces the two changes in staffing during the year: Lupin, and Hagrid, who has been made the Care of Magical Creatures teacher in lieu of the retirement of Professor Kettleburn. Dumbledore also announces that Dementors are to be stationed around the school, as a precaution against Black.
It was also the year that Lisa took Divination finding it to be dull and leaving the class halfway through the year. Hagrid also became the professor for Care of Magical Creatures lesson, Hagrid teaches them about hippogriffs (horse/eagle creatures). Although initially nervous, Harry successfully approaches and then rides a grey hippogriff named Buckbeak. Later in the lesson, Malfoy, who had not been listening to Hagrid's lecture, insults Buckbeak, causing it to slash his arm with its talons. He is taken to the hospital wing, and Hagrid fears that he will take the blame for letting Buckbeak attack Malfoy, even though Malfoy provoked it in the first place. The Quidditch season also begins during this time, but due to Malfoy's "injury", Gryffindor are unable to play against Slytherin, so they play against Hufflepuff in the first match instead. It is raining badly, and Harry sees a large black dog in the topmost empty row of seats in the Quidditch stadium, which appears to be the grim. Dementors enter the match, causing Harry to faint and fall from his broomstick. Dumbledore saves Harry, but his Nimbus 2000 broomstick flies into the Whomping Willow and is destroyed, and Hufflepuff win the match shortly afterwards. Along with Hermione, Lisa thought that it would have been fair if they played again but Oliver wood wouldn't allow it saying Cedric caught the snitch fair and square. Towards the end of the year, it was discovered that Lupin was a werewolf and Sirius was at Hogwarts to catch Peter Pettigrew whom was the real reason why Sirius was arresisted. After his escape, Harry recieved a new firebolt which was the fastest broom of the year.
In the summer of 1994, Along with Cedric and Oliver Wood she attended the Quidditch World Cup with her parents on where she met Viktor Krum who was playing for Bulgeria. Going into her fourth, Hogwarts became the school to have hosted the TwiWizard Tournament in which two other schools joined to attend. Excited for the Tournament she watched as Cedric adds his name into the goblet and was proud when he got chosen. Viktor Krum got chosen from his school and Fleur Delecour got chosen from hers but it was Harry Potters name that caught her attention for he was only in his fourth year at the time. The Tournament being extremely dangerous and having many people die from it, she watched each event carefully as each of the students went through each task. Come November, the first task of fighting against dragons for a golden egg is what made many students nervous but excited at the same time. It wasnt until Harrys dragon got lose from his chain and chased after him that made the event excited. As the tournament continued, she easily supported Cedric but supported Harry as well giving that it wasn t really his fault for getting chosen in the first place. She also stood up for them both as Pansy Parkinson as well as Draco Malfoy was walking about wearing Support CEDRIC DIGGORY-the REAL Hogwarts Champion which changed to POTTER STINKS badges made her shake her head as she did not wear them either. Yule Ball which was hosted on Christmas eve. Though she had wished to have gone with Viktor Krum to the ball she attended with Cormac McLaggen who was a student from the Gryffindor household. As the second task arrived at the black lake, she watched as the champions went into the water to find the treasure that was hidden at the bottom. Mermaids were what the champions had to fight against and Cedric came up first getting first place then Viktor following Harry after Fleur was disqualified for getting caught but Harry ended up being tied for saving both Ron Weasley and Fleurs sister.
As both tasks were finished the third was approaching fast which made her wonder what it was going to be. Upon the arrival of the third task Lisa knew that this was going to be the most dangerous task of the whole tournament. It was then that her entire life had changed for at the end of the task expecting to see Cedric appear holding the cup she saw something worse. Harry appearing out of nowhere with the body. Cedric was killed by Wormtail using Voldemort wand at a graveyard. Not choosing to believe it, it wasnt until she watched as Cedrics father broke down crying in the middle of the arena that he was truly dead leaving her to comfort Cho the best way she could knowing that Cho was dating the Hufflepuff boy since the Yule ball.
Entering her fifth year in 1995, The ministry of magic sent a woman by the name of Dolores Umbridge to the school. After Harry had announced in the spring that Voldemort was back everyone had thought he was lying and the Minister was desperate to prove to the wizardry world that he was wrong. Shortly after their first Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson during the year, it was clear to the trio that that practical defensive magic would not be taught in the class. Instead, a Ministry-approved course of theory, under the stewardship of Dolores Umbridge, would be taught. Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge was afraid that Albus Dumbledore would use these lessons to train an army of wizards and witches to oppose him and to try to take over the Ministry since he refused to believe that Lord Voldemort had returned.
Concerned that they needed defensive magical skills to combat Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters, Hermione proposed the formation of a practical study group to be taught by Harry. Since he had more experience than any of them with using actual defensive and offensive magic following his encounters with Lord Voldemort Hermione believed that he would be the perfect instructor. Harry was initially reluctant, but after two weeks of having to deal with Umbridge, and her appointment as the first Hogwarts High Inquisitor, finally agreed. Hermione arranged a meeting in the Hog's Head during the first Hogsmeade visit of the school year for anyone who wanted to learn, although Harry was sceptical that anyone would turn up. Since the Daily Prophet smear campaign against him, many of the students considered him to either be a liar or insane.
In the Hog's Head, Harry was surprised to see a large amount of students from Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw turn up, although he harboured the suspicion that a few, such as Zacharias Smith and Lisa included. After some initial scepticism, Harry's friends started to list his achievements the rescue of the Philosopher's Stone, defeating the Basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets using Godric Gryffindor's Sword, driving off one hundred Dementors by producing the Patronus, conquering the Triwizard Tournament, and duelling Voldemort himself. The need for secrecy would be vital if Umbridge found out about them, they would surely be shut down and punished. Each student then signed, some rather reluctantly, a special piece of parchment to show their commitment. Unknown to any of them, Hermione bewitched the parchment to include a jinx. If any student should betray the D.A., then the word "SNEAK" would be written across their face in spots. The meeting broke up and sessions were to begin once a location had been found to train in. Unbeknown to any of the D.A., they were being watched. Mundungus Fletcher, disguised as a witch with a thick black veil, was keeping an eye on Harry for the Order of the Phoenix, while Willy Widdershins informed Umbridge of the meeting in a plea-bargain to avoid punishment for a series of regurgitating toilet incidents. Umbridge used the information to implement Educational Decree Number Twenty-Four, which banned all student organisations that were not approved of by the High Inquisitor.
Although not revealed at that time, Aberforth Dumbledore also relayed information about the D.A. to the Order, as they were meeting inside his pub.Initially, Ron thought that a student at the meeting had betrayed them, until Hermione pointed out that if they had, she would have known about it due to the jinx she placed on the parchment that they all signed. Despite the ban, Harry assured all the members that the meetings would go ahead once an ideal location was found. They would just need to be careful. Soon, Harry was told about the Room of Requirement by the house-elf Dobby, who occasionally used it to store the drunken house-elf Winky in. After Dobby told him how to summon the Room to Harry, Hermione, and Ron, the D.A. convened for their first practice session. During the first session, Cho Chang created the name Defence Association, but Ginny Weasley gave the group a pseudonym "Dumbledore's Army" to frighten the Ministry officials, since they were frightened that Dumbledore was creating an army to take over the Ministry. Harry started them off slowly, practising the Disarming Charm which didn't take Lisa long enough to learn. When Zacharias Smith scoffed at its simplicity and wondered about its effectiveness, Harry responded that it was the spell that saved him from Lord Voldemort in the Little Hangleton Graveyard. Aware that arranging meetings and passing the word about them verbally was not a secure method of communication, Hermione bewitched several coins with a Protean Charm, one for each member of the D.A. When activated by Hermione, the numbers on each coin would change to inform the bearer of the time and date of the next meeting.
The class progressed at a fair rate, practicing the Impediment Jinx, the Reductor Curse, and the Stunning Spell before temporarily breaking up for the Christmas period.Lessons continued during the early months of 1996, and the mass breakout of imprisoned Death Eaters from Azkaban spurred them on to greater efforts, particularly Neville Longbottom, whose friends learned that three of the escapees had tortured Neville's parents into insanity at the end of the First Wizarding War. The class mastered the Shield Charm, and began to work on the Patronus Charm. The class also welcomed a new member, Seamus Finnigan. Despite being a Gryffindor in the same year as Harry, the two boys had argued when Harry insulted Seamus' mother for believing the Daily Prophet's version of events.
However, with the publication of an interview in The Quibbler, many, including Seamus and his mother, came to see the holes in the Ministry's stories, and started to back Harry.Shortly before Easter, one D.A. member, Marietta Edgecombe, betrayed them to Umbridge. She was a reluctant member of the D.A., having been brought to the meetings by her friend, Cho Chang. Her mother worked in the Floo Network Office and was helping Umbridge to monitor the Floo Network at Hogwarts. Afraid that her mother's job was in jeopardy, she revealed the location of the D.A.'s meetings to Umbridge. Immediately, the jinx that Hermione had placed on the parchment that each member of the D.A. had signed activated, causing the word "SNEAK" to break out in boils across Marietta's face. Dobby learned of this turn of events, and rushed to the Room of Requirement to warn Harry and the D.A. Most members escaped, but some, including Harry, were caught by Umbridge and several Slytherin students, many of whom would go on to be members of the Inquisitorial Squad. A search of the room uncovered the parchment that each member of the D.A. had signed, entitled "Dumbledore's Army." Finally having "proof" that Dumbledore was building an army to challenge the Ministry, Umbridge immediately contacted Cornelius Fudge.During a confrontation with Fudge and Umbridge, Albus Dumbledore took full responsibility for the creation of Dumbledore's Army to shield Harry and the students from the Ministry's wrath. Kingsley Shacklebolt, an Auror and member of the Order of the Phoenix, used a False Memory Charm on Marietta to make her version of events tally with Dumbledore's.
His "confession" led to Fudge attempting to arrest him. Dumbledore escaped, but Umbridge was installed as the Headmistress of Hogwarts. Since Dumbledore's army had been disbanned, Lisa's school year continued on as she studied for her OWL's having passed them. It was then that the twins, Fred and George whom showed a rebellious side to Umbridge being in control of the school. With the help of Lisa, the three of them turned a corridor of the school into a swamp to create a diversion for Harry to access the fireplace in Umbridge's office in an attempt to contact Sirius Black only to have been caught Umbridge and members of the Inquisitorial Squad though Lisa managed to escape being caught by Fred signaling her to get out of there before they showed up.In a final act of defiance, the twins summoned their brooms, openly mocked Umbridge's authority, struck the Squad members with a variety of jinxes, and escaped the school behind to pursue a career in their joke shop. In the aftermath of Fred and George's departure, the student body took up their mantle, releasing dungbombs, using Skiving Snackboxes, and, in the case of Lee Jordan, releasing Nifflers into Umbridge's office. Even Peeves, who had never taken an order from any student, followed Fred and George's request to "give her hell from them."Harry and his friends, flew to London on Thestrals, only to discover that Lord Voldemort had planted the vision in Harry's mind to get him to remove his prophecy from the Department of Mysteries. During the subsequent battle, several of the D.A. members suffered injuries until the Order of the Phoenix arrived to rescue them. All the D.A .members survived the battle, and were treated by Madam Pomfrey in the hospital wing upon their return to Hogwarts. This battle exposed Voldemort's return to the public, and signaled the beginning of open war.
Starting her sixth year in 1996, Lisa achieved high academic prestige when she obtained ten O.W.L.s, in Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, Care of Magical Creatures, Arithmancy, History of Magic, Herbology, Astronomy, Potions, and Ancient Runes. She received 'Outstanding' marks on each of them. By that time, Lisa's relationship with Cormac McLaggen was over and done with at the end of her fifth year earning their relationship to be rocky throughout the school year. Because of her father being a known Auror in the Ministry of magic, Lisa along with her sister both became a member of Slughorn's Slug Club and was invited to join the Christmas party later that year. By the time the school year was drawning to an close, Lisa along with the rest of the students discovered that Draco Malfoy became a death eater and was the reason why the death-eaters came into the school attacking it resulting in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and Lisa's worst fear, the death of Professor Dumbledore by the hands of Professor Snape to protect Malfoy. During the funeral of Dumbledore, Lisa sat along with the other students crying wondering what was going to happen to their world now.
