PLAY-BY: Evan Rachel Wood
MIRROR OF ERISED: To see her mother again
BOGGART: Isolation & Darkness
Phobia: The poor girl is afraid of heights, which is mostly why she never had a passion (or knack) for flying. She can sit in the stands and watch everyone else fly around during a Quidditch game, but ask her to hop on her broom and she will put up a bit of a fight.
Habit: She has been known for talking excessively when she is nervous. Also, being the intelligent one that she is, Stana refers back to books in many situations.
Pet Peeve: Stana cherishes all the friends that she has made, so when someone is being bullied or picked on, she hardly stands for it and will speak up to protect them.
Personality: Stana is a very very personable girl. She is friendly, polite and very charming, when she speaks up. The funny thing about her is that she can be kind of shy, but if you get her going enough and if she’s nervous about something she will more than likely chat your ear off, maybe about something she‘s read or will relate it to something she‘s seen or read before. If she is seen reading she doesn’t like to be bothered much unless it is very important or an all-out emergency. She isn’t known to be the most popular girl in school, but she has a healthy amount of friends, whom she absolutely adores. As written above, she can be very protective of those who are close to her. Stana was very much appreciative of her mother, and damns the unfortunate fact that she does not look like her at all; she inherited her fathers blond hair, his blue eyes and pale skin. Call her “her father’s daughter” and you will be in for a treat…or rather, an untimely demise. All around, however, she is a sweet girl, intelligent and friendly.

Philip met Milica when he was visiting with his friend's family in the muggle world. She was a youn beauty from a humble merchant family settled in Brixham, and he was instantly in love. His parents discouraged the marriage since she was not from the magical world, but when Milica became pregnant with Stana, they knew the child would bear some magical blood and did what they could to take care of their new daughter-in-law and the baby. Around the time she was born was the great war with the dark lord Voldemort, and Philip was taken out to join the ranks to fight and later on rebuild the wizarding world, so she spent her early years in Brixham, her birthplace, living with Milica and her parents. She absolutely loved the quaint little parish town, as it was by the sea, with wonderful people and most of all, her family.
When she turned twelve, tragedy hit Stana, and it hit hard. When they were visiting her paternal grandparents, Milica was brutally murdered in town, around the areas of a place called: Knockturn Alley. Rumors spread fast, talking down about the mug-blood woman wandering in ‘a place she did not belong’, and that she ‘got what she deserved’, which made Stana extremely angry. This place was so foreign, strange, and altogether extraordinary. She hated magic and everything in this new atmosphere, she wanted to return to Brixham where everything was ‘normal’. Unfortunately for her, Philip’s family thought it would be best if they moved into their estate in the Magical world, a very large mansion on the countryside. This opened up Stana’s eyes to her father’s life and was then told where he had been all those years, fighting for the better of this place so she could later discover her own potential. It was like she had to get to know him all over again, since he had so rarely been a part of her childhood.
Philip managed to pull some strings at Hogwarts, requesting that she be placed into the school, transferring in at the second year level, her age group. She fought against going to the school day after day, pleading with her father to return her to her mother’s parents in Brixham, but his parents refused. They commenced to put her through severe training to catch up on what she missed out on during her first year, almost like a boot camp of first year materials compressed into three months time. It was quite a task, and she resented her father for such torture, but she managed to learn everything she needed in preparations for her transfer. Reading became an outlet for her; when she found things to be tough or if she did not want to be around her supposed “family”, she would lock herself in her room with a good book, varying from American to English literature to pass the time. She used a lot of the settings and situations in the books she read to daydream, wishing she were elsewhere instead of in this wretched place of murder.
Adapting to the school and its magical properties was memorable for her. She eventually settled in and was sorted into the Gryffindor house. She, of course, found some of the children to be strange, especially those who had been around magic all their lives, but they were for the most part tolerable. She often saw characteristics and personalities she had gotten to know so well in Brixham, finding great friends here at the school. In her fifth year at Hogwarts, Philip met Sofia Giovanni, a voluptuous, Italian witch with a young daughter of her own, and it hurt Stana to see how well her grandparents took to this new bride. She knew that they disliked Milica for being a muggle, and every now and again had to remember that she herself was merely a half-blood, only half of their pride and joy. Stana liked to stay in the boarding houses or with friends during the summers and holidays, refusing to go home to a woman to call “Mom” and look into the cold, empty eyes of her father.
At 17, Stana had unanswered questions about what happened to her mother. Many records were either stored with the ministers investigating the death of her mother or archived away in the cold cases that the Regime surely wanted to sweep away, as it was probably marked unimportant. No one would just murder a muggle out of the blue, pureblood purist or not…at least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.
...and Stana was later kidnapped, taken to unknown parts in the darkest parts of town. She thought that it was because she had dug too deep--finding out clues and uncovering the mystery of her mother's death, and getting too close. But now she's back, and she wants answers.
ANYTHING ELSE? Stana was the reason Liam O'Donnell was framed and put into Azkaban. It turns out she was kidnapped and stashed away like the recently surfaced Jaleth Lenor and Diana Blaine bu an unknown entity. Whoever orchestrated their kidnappings and framed O'Donnell is still at large...
