Personality

It's people like Naija that make the Sorting Hat's job challenging. Both of her parents and older siblings were sorted into Ravenclaw during their school years and she was no far cry from any of them intelligence-wise, however she had always been far more outspoken and temperamental than the rest of her family, making her a very easy candidate for Gryffindor as well. It was something of a shock to she and her family, still, when the Hat did decide on Gryffindor finally, but once she was able to spend some time with her housemates, it became obvious that it had been a wise decision.

An easy confidant, she made a lot of friends in her school years, even if said friends often annoyed her. They were generally reckless and laid back, getting in the way of her precious study time on a daily basis as they pulled her into their fun which, at times, she just couldn't resist—yet, with her persistence and determination where her studies were concerned, Naija was still able to graduate with honors.

These qualities made her a natural when she joined on at St. Mungo's as a Healer after graduation, although it is obvious to her and those around her that she overworks herself far too often. She needs a firm hand approach taken to her most of the time to get her to go home or relax like she should, which usually comes in the form of her husband or brother, who also happen to be her co-workers.

Working in the pediatrics and maternity wards is another thing that has come very easily to the young Healer. A great lover of children, especially babies, her maternal qualities shine through to others through her choice of occupation. Her greatest wish it to someday have a house bursting with children of her own and be surrounded by them at all times, as was the case with she and her siblings when she was younger.

History

naija2.png

Born nearly five weeks earlier than she was due, Naija Jaya Dassi weighed a full five pounds, six ounces and came into the world on May 12, 1956 in the hospital in Bombay, India where her mother, Dalaja Dassi, was currently on shift. While she was meant to have been born in London—after the weekend trip her parents were making to the Indian hospital for a special call-it seemed like the newest Dassi baby just wasn't prepared to wait. Thankfully, there were no major medical complications, although her stay with the intensive care unit extended their trip quite a bit and it was not until Naija was a month old that she was allowed to finally go to her real home in England and her brother and sister.

As the Dassi children grew older (and eventually welcomed in another sister, Nadiya), all four grew quite close to one another—while living in the middle of a big city, it was somewhat difficult to find neighbor friends, and the children ended up spending much more time playing with each other than they did with others. It stayed like this up until Leena's 11th birthday, marking her departure to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, two years later that of Inesh, and within another three years, Naija's.

She was sorted into Gryffindor house (a strict departure from the Ravenclaw legacy of her parents and older siblings), despite the initial difficulty there was in whether her intelligence was an important

enough factor to be considered. The young girl's personable, outgoing nature won over, however, and being the friendly person she was, she had no problem making friends… although at times, those friends jeopardized her much-treasured study time. Distractions from her friends aside, Naija still managed to graduate Hogwarts with honors-9 O.W.L.s and an excellent score on her N.E.W.T.s-and was immediately accepted into the Healer-in-Training program.

Intern year seemed to drag by, but after it was over, Naija was ready and able to immerse herself in the fields of maternity and pediatrics care and began to enjoy her job a lot more. She made enough money at her job to move into a flat of her own in London, and for several years did nothing but think about working, sleeping, and eating (though usually the former more than the two latter). She was so deep in her work, in fact, that she never really had time to realize that her life was actually pretty empty-it wasn't until she started to get to know a fellow healer by the name of Priyaranjan Patil that she recognized her innermost desire for more to her life.

As it would happen, Pri came to feel the same way that she did, and it wasn't very long before the two decided to do something spontaneous with their lives and get engaged. The whole process of the wedding took a lot longer than their impromptu engagement did, what with both of them working so hard and the disputes on details between themselves and their family, but it all worked out in the end. On the afternoon of June 16, 1978, she became Naija Patil in a beautiful Hindu ceremony, a short but well-deserved and much anticipated break from the rush and craziness of their everyday lives.
