<<Played by flyingchanges>>
Full Name>>Eleanor Rose Chapman
Age>> 30th November 1999, aged 16
Staff or Student>> Student
House>> Green Ribbon
Face Claim>> Helenna Mckelvie
Personality>> If you were asked to describe Eleanor in 1 word you may say "bubbly" or "happy" because she is just one of those girls who doesn't even notice if the glass is half empty because she just loves whatever she was drinking out the cup. This girl has no rainy day and always finds the positive in her life. She's trustworthy and keeps secrets, and doesn't get involved in drama or spread rumours. However, her heart may be pure but sometimes her social skills can't keep up, so she may not always be the person you can confide in. Ellie isn't overly attached to people, much preferring the company of her pony and her hamster. She can find comfort in anything horsey be it a pair of old jods or a pony poster. Eleanor is also quintessentially British, and loves a cup of tea in the morning, but she will never complain about American brews and will happily make do with whatever she is given; as despite her wealthy background she will always have a spare plate of humble pie and never boasts about her possessions. Eleanor is keen to document all her memories whilst at BRRA, and uses her high speed thumbs to create quick edits of her, her friends and pets to send home to her family.
Likes>> Horses, Science, YouTubers, Spain, Making video edits and online shopping. And, of course, a good cup of Yorkshire Tea!
Dislikes>> Rubbish cups of tea, Maths and English, skirts, her curly hair, rain and b**chiness
Fears>> Spiders and that her dream of owning her very own pony will end
Hopes>> To become an equine pysiotherapist and live in Spain
Secrets>> Eleanor's secret is that she is afraid to push herself as she sometimes gets afraid of her pony, after many falls and incidents with him she worries about what will happen if she falls, and more importantly if she'll lose him.
Appearance>> Eleanor is an average height of 5'5 with a slim boyish build. With pale cool toned skin and a frame draped in freckles, it's not surprise her hair is a wispy curl of strawberry blonde hair. Despite her freckles, there is no other blemish found on her clear and shining skin surrounding her button nose and thin lips, however her warm eyes and open smile (straight teeth from all those years of braces) make her a pretty face to look at. Eleanor is flat chested and athletic from all the years of slugging away dragging wheelbarrows up and down muckheaps, and despite her pale complexion her arms and legs are often tanned or pink from summer rides or a family holiday to Spain. As for her clear unblemished skin, the buck stops at her neck. She often has a bruise or graze on her arms, hips or legs from a fall or stray hoof or even a bite, and has a scar on the inside on her left knee from a friend's cob riding her into a wall! Eleanor doesn't tend to wear much makeup apart from filling in her eyebrows so they are visible and some dark mascara, and her healthy glow from all the hours spent outside shines through. Eleanor is usually found in a pair of jods and a t shirt and a hoodie, and goes for comfort over style for riding (as anybody who has lived in England would) and her hair is always in it's naturally curly state apart from for special occasions
Markings>> Scar on inside of left knee
Medical History>> Ellie suffers from eczema on her hands, making them dry, but with moisturiser and Aveeno it is maintainable
Criminal History>> Ellie has had no run ins with the law itself, but has drunk underage.
Full History>> Eleanor is from the north of England and comes from a wealthy background, with her mother running a business and her father working in a cosmetics company. Ellie went to a comprehensive primary school and then to a grammar school for her secondary education. The grammar school was far away and cost a lot to travel to every day, and Ellie tried to hard to make her parents proud of her for all the tutoring costs and transport costs, as well as the 6AM get ups 5 days a week. Luckily, she performed brilliantly in her GCSEs and made them proud, however faced with no clue as to where to take her future, she turned to her love of horses and decided on equine pysiotherapy after her mind was changed from farriery by a friend who had trouble getting into the trade for being a woman. Ellie has never experienced sadness or hardship in her life, but her Achilles' Heel is her experience with horses. For 2 years, she rode at a friend's farm who had 12 horses, looking after a Welsh A named Saxon. However the tables turned and the family lost the farm, and Ellie lost her Saxon. She then turned to officially loaning a pony so she could never lose them, and then rode a Welsh X called Ruby. At first, she doted on her Ruby and finally being able to call a horse her own, however soon cracks started to appear in their relationship. Ruby was bad to ride out, and with no arena to school in Ellie didn't feel safe when Ruby acted up out on the trail. Her fear of everything from hedges to tractors began to transfer into Ellie, and tempting offers from riding schools to ride well trained bombproof horses made her fall out of love with her pony even more. In the end, Ellie had to say goodbye to Ruby to focus on her exams but it was not a decision she took lightly, as she watched a friend take over the reins and misunderstand the spooky mare as being naughty. After her exams Ellie began to ride a friend's mother's showjumping cob named Murphy, and with a few strings pulled Murphy became Ellie's. With her new partner in crime and stellar grades, Ellie made another hard decision - to move to the States to pursue her dreams. If she's learnt anything, it's to never let anything stop her and her pony. Ever.
Pet Name>> Jess
Registered Name>> N/A
Age>> 10 months
Breed>> Dwarf Russian Hamster
Personality>> Jess may only be little, but has the energy of a Disney fireworks display. She will happily continue to run around her cage 24 hours flat a day, only stopping to stuff her cheeks with sunflower seeds before she's off again. Her antics and fizzy nature make people laugh, and she never fails to cheer people up. Her on the go attitude to make her difficult to hold though, as she's quickly bored and would rather be exploring under a desk or in the wall cavity!
History>> Jess was the oldest of 5 pups, yet the last to be taken to a new home, possibly because nobody could catch her! By the time she could walk and see she managed to escape from her cage and hide under the floorboards for a few days before she was discovered by her breeder's cat and had to run for her life, giving her a monumental fear of felines (even more so than normal for hamsters!). Since being owned by Eleanor, Jess has had less incidents with cats, but just any many escapades from her cage to investigate!
