|Olivine Aphandy (née Gypsum)|
Olivine Aphandy (née Gypsum) was a pureblooded witch and the daughter of Ligurus Gypsum and Bathsheda Thicknesse, and was a direct descendant of Silver and Gold Gypsum. Olivine died young in an unfortunate accident in the laboratory at Saint Athynans hospital. No one was sure what exactly happened, but she was the only casualty, so many suspected her death was not an accident.
Olivine, like every other from the Gypsum Family was raised with an incredible amount of pressure to maintain the status of a high-society pureblood. Her family did not approve of her love for medicine, as the purpose of females born into the Gypsum family are typically just for breeding purebloods with other pureblooded families. While Olivine did get married and have a son at a young age, she did not believe in the same pure-blooded morals that had been passed down for generations in her family. She had a great deal of enemies in the pureblooded circle due to her different beliefs, that blood isn't everything.
In 1905, Olivine met Kieman Aphandy, and married him in 1906. She gave birth to her only son, Andrew Aphandy in 1916, only weeks before her "accidental" death. The convenience was that the pureblooded child still was alive and could continue to breed purebloods, while the woman with the "twisted" morals would not have a say in the way he was taught. No one knew who killed her, but no one believed her death was an accident.
From the English word for the type of tree, ultimately derived from Latin Olivia.
