PLAYER | Claira
Zelda is the daughter of Abasi Salem and his second wife, Rosette Salem nee Couillard. Prior to her arrival, her parents were already having serious problems with their marriage and it was only a matter of time before they would split. She was born and then after a few months, it happened. Rosette left Abasi, taking Zelda with her. For the first few years, her mother had allowed Abasi to see her anytime that he wanted. But then those visits became fewer and fewer as Rosette was planning to leave the country. Once the courts gave her and Zelda the approval to move, they were gone.

As she grew up, Zelda stayed in the care of a nanny while her mother was always at work. During holidays and her birthday she was allowed to see her dad, but other than that she had always seemed alone.

She was nine years old when her powers began to manifest. Plants would bloom from beneath her feet, and in moments of extreme happiness she could literally float on air. The Ministry visited Zelda and her nanny to inform her of her powers and her new status of being a witch. Rosette was informed via telephone call.

Rosette was stressed and less than thrilled about this, but the came out of this was that her ex-husband was semi-knowledgeable in the magical world. Abasi finally got to be in his daughter’s life even more now.

Abasi, with the enlisted help of his youngest nephew Shazad, ensured a spot for her at Beauxbatons Academy; helped with buying her school supplies and robes. Her first year at Beauxbatons started off pretty rough. Within a few months of the first year, Zelda was found unconscious and unresponsive in the dorms when she didn’t attend the first class. After being promptly taken to the medical ward, she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and had to keep her medication on her at all times, or at least have them nearby to be readily accessed. In the second year, she developed the power of Sight; visions that occur sporadically (ranging from maybe one major a month to two or three minor, maybe none for a month or two) throughout the years. While having these visions, Zelda suffers from bouts of amnesia and minor migraines; but when having a particularly large episode, her body believes itself to be using a lot of energy, so she can burn through an insulin shot and/or suffer from a case of hypoglycemia.

Having a daughter who was a diabetic witch with the ability to see into the future was not what Rosette had in mind for Zelda. In fact, she decided that it would be best that Abasi had custody of Zelda so that she may keep the majority of her focus on her job. By the end of the school year, Zelda was back in London after eight years of being away.

For her third year, she was enrolled into Hogwarts. Upon her arrival, Zelda was sorted into Gryffindor and has found her new schooling experience to be considerably better than back at Beauxbatons.
