Prude. The last word anyone expected to describe the daughter of Hogwarts' most infamously renegade Marauder, Sirius Black. But when your paranoid, overprotective madman of a father chases away any bloke that so much as blinks at you with a fastidiously sharpened pitchfork, you tend to get that reputation. Most blokes steer clear of Emilia Black like they're getting paid by the hour, fearing castration or something equally dismembering. Unfortunately, prick-of-the-century Marcus Flint isn't 'most blokes'.
