> Like her fellow Hufflepuffs, Alice exemplifies the qualities of her House within herself. Alice is as genuinely warm as she is complex. She holds a special place in her heart of people who she is close to. Concerned for people's feelings, Alice tries to be gentle to avoid hurting anyone. She is well-meaning and driven to be close to others, but can slip into doing things for others in order to be needed. She typically has problems with possessiveness and with acknowledging her own needs. Sensitive to conflict, she cannot tolerate it very well. Situations which are charged with conflict may drive her into a state of agitation or charged anger. Often internalizing strife, Alice, at times, experiences health problems when under tremendous stress.
Rarely at complete peace with herself, Alice feels there is always something else she should be doing to improve herself and the world around her. She believes in constant growth, and doesn't often take time to celebrate her accomplishments. Possessing a strong value system, she lives her life in accordance with what she feels is right. Alice has very high expectations of herself. She doesn't believe in compromising her ideals.

puts a tremendous amount of faith into her instincts and intuitions. She knows things intuitively, without being able to pinpoint why, and without detailed knowledge of the subject at hand. This is the sort of ability that others scorn and scoff at. Still, Alice trusts her own instincts above all else. This results in stubborness and a tendency to ignore other people's opinions as she believes that she is right.

Protective of her inner-self, Alice shares only what she chooses to share when she chooses to share it. She is a deep, complex individual, who is quite private and typically difficult to understand. Consequently, she holds back part of herself, and can be secretive.

> Grace Barry (Mother, 41, Mediwitch at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries)
> Paul Barry (Brother, 21, Auror Office for the Department of Magical Law Enforcement)
> Daniel Barry (Brother, 18, Dishwasher at the Leaky Cauldron)
> Bridget Barry (Sister, 12, 2nd Year Gryffindor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry)
> Alice was born and raised in Carlow County, Ireland to a wizarding family consisting of a father, mother and three siblings, all wizards. That is not to say that Alice’s family is of pure-blood. A fair mixture of muggle-born relatives compliment her family lineage. Patrick Barry, Alice's father, works for the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. Positioned in the Improper Use of Magic Office, Patrick is responsible for punishing violators of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy. Paul Barry, Alice's oldest brother, followed in his father's footsteps and likewise joined the Department of Magical Law Enforcement as part of the Auror Office. Alice's mother, Grace Barry, first a housewife, found work as a Mediwitch at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, acting as a medic and field doctor. Daniel Barry, the second eldest brother to Alice, is an anomaly in the Barry household. Although as equally gifted as his siblings, Daniel never particularly took to magic. Failing most of his courses at Hogwarts, Daniel dropped out completely, choosing instead to live life as a muggle. At present, Daniel works as a dishwasher at the Leaky Cauldron in London. Younger sister, Bridget Barry, currently attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as a second year Gryffindor.

The lives of wizards and witches are anything but typical, but Alice had a fairly conventional childhood, albeit for the chance ups and downs. Alice's mother married right out of Hogwarts at eighteen and delivered her first child, Paul, at twenty. She bore three more children all before the age of thirty. While Patrick Barry worked hard to earn money for his family at the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, he unintentionally neglected Grace who acted as housewife to their four young children. Growing evermore lonely, Grace spent her thirties going out to clubs and partying with her friends as she left her oldest son Paul, still underage, to look after his three younger siblings while their father worked. The carelessness from both sides lead to increased arguments and an impending divorce. The verbal fighting that took place within the Barry residence was too much for Alice to handle as she spent much of her time huddled in her closet crying for her parents to stop arguing. Sometimes the situations got so bad that Alice's parents would drag their children into their heated battles. The mother claimed she would take Patrick's daughters away while the father assured his wife that their sons would be his. Sometimes the innocent bystanders would act as a net, catching random flying objects such as old family albums or crashing dinner plates, with their small and fragile bodies. 
Every now and again the stress of her family got so bad that Alice would fall ill for days at a time. Paul ended up leaving the home as soon as he was of age, while Daniel spent his time locked away in his room. Alice attempted to shield little Bridget as much as she could. If the situation turned too sour for her tastes her natural magical ability would kick in and cause Alice to blend seamlessly into her surroundings. Like a chameleon she was shielded from her parents' bitter game of tug-o-war. As the turmoil in the house ceased, Alice's parents reconciled their marriage and ended their talk of divorce. Grace found a career as a Mediwitch at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, leaving her fulfilled, as Patrick worked harder at affording his wife affection.

On her eleventh birthday, Alice received her long awaited invitation, by messenger owl, to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in September 2010. The girl was overjoyed to be accepted into the prestigious school. The school not only acted as an escape from the bitter turmoil she once endured, but it also afforded her an opportunity to channel all her angst into improving herself. While she expected to be sorted into Gryffindor, the house of her father and two older brothers, the Sorting Hat instead placed Alice into Hufflepuff. Grace Barry was overjoyed with the decision as she was a Hufflepuff Alumni and the house appeared to be most befitting for the gentle and intuitive preteen. Bridget followed soon after, becoming a Gryffindor, and two years her junior. 

As Alice enters into her fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry she begins to weigh her career options. Excelling considerably in charms, Alice has been considering the career path as a curse-breaker at the wizard's bank, Gringotts. 
An O.W.L. in Arithmancy is required, as some banking and transacting will be done. Also, presumably, N.E.W.Ts in Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Transfiguration and Charms would be necessary, given the dangerous aspects of the job, as well as one in Ancient Runes. With this knowledge at hand, Alice intends to work hard at fulfilling her dreams as the O.W.Ls are just a year away and the N.E.W.Ts, two.
