Age: 23

Blood status: Half-Blood

Ethnicity/nationality: Irish

Languages Spoken: Irish, English, Gaelic, Shelta, Scots, and rudimentary Centaur

Place of birth/residence: Dundalk Ireland, Hogwarts (If I get the job, Dundalk if not)

Education: The first year of Saoirse's magical education took place at Hogwarts School, this was put to an abrupt and violent end when the attack occured late in her first year. From that point on she was taught by her mother, later taking her N.E.W.T. as provided by the ministry.

Charms: P
Transfiguration: A
Herbology: O
Defence Against the Dark Arts: D
Ancient Runes: P
Potions: A
Care of Magical Creatures: O
Astronomy: E
Divination: E
History of Magic: A

Former House: Hufflepuff briefly

What job are you planning to get?: Herbology Professor

Family background and description: Saoirse comes from a warm and loving headed by her father Abban, and her mother Nainsi. Her father who is Muggle was greatly surprised to discover that the woman he'd been married to for fourteen years was a witch, when their eldest child and only boy Deasun received his letter to attend Hogwarts. Her older sisters Ciara and Fiona to follow suite each of them following in their mother's foot steps and being sorted into Gryffindor House, leaving Saoirse to be alone in Hufflepuff.

Personal history: Saoirse was a happy healthy baby when she was born at seven pounds six ounces. She grew quickly as most babies do into a toddler who would, on stumbling limbs chase after her mother's cat. The toddler soon became a young girl who was adventurous and a tom-boy, at seven she broke her right arm in three places climbing a tree to return a robin fledgling to its nest. At eleven she received a letter of invitation to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Her time spent their was the happiest time in her life, until the assault on the school changed everything. From witnessing the bloody and violent deaths of friends to the curse that would nearly cost her, her life and leave her badly scared and handicapped for the rest of her days, to the murder of own brother who had been in his final year the child was traumatized and suffered as most of the children did from P.T.S.D.

Saoirse and her sisters were then trained by their mother in secret for fear for their lives. All the while as she grew however Saoirse felt different from her sisters and friends, it wasn't until in a fleeting moment of daring that she kissed one of her best friends, a girl by the name of Olivia, Olivia and many of her friends stopped seeing her after this. Her family greatly disapproved as well but would not tell her so directly, her father rather becoming more distant as his girl grew into a woman. Now, at twenty-three and in constant need of a back brace and crutches Saoirse who's N.E.W.T.s were of an adequate enough score to catch the sights of the Order has accepted their invitation to return to Hogwarts, this time as a teacher.

Physical Appearance: Saoirse has long honey brown hair, deep sorrel eyes accented by her creamy skin and heart shaped face. She has a bit of a prominent nose, and a long legged moderately shapely figure, this is however hidden and obscured by the bulky straight sides of her back brace and offset by her forearm crutches. Saoirse also has a large and mangled scar that stretches from the base of her neck to midway down her back and across her left side.

Personality: Saoirse is a very caring generous person who often puts other's needs ahead of her own, this being said she is often seen and treated as a push over and door mat, she still suffers from both the physical and mental trauma she experienced as a child and struggles to over come them. She often chews her finger nails and the ends of her hair, Herbology is definitely a passion of hers as well as flying and crochet.

Boggart: Either a Death Eater, or a small enclosed space

Mirror of Erised: She'd tell herself that what she's most want to see is her brother, but in truth she sees someone who loves and accepts her for exactly who and what she is.

Patronus: A moth

Amortentia: Rosewater perfume, freshly baked bread, potting soil, kitten's whiskers, soap, and rain on a hot sidewalk

Additional information: Saoirse is a Lesbian

Role-play example. Role-play as your character in any situation you want: Saoirse sighed heavily as the grand castle came into view. It was as magnificent as it had been the first time she'd laid eyes on it twelve years ago, grand and strong four mighty towers arching defiantly at the heavens opposing those who would have this place destroyed. It felt different this time, somehow as she gazed out the train window, yes she'd chosen to take the express there was something almost endearing about it, but she still couldn't quite quell her fears entirely. Soon the train eked its way to a halt. Saoirse stood, with some difficulty as the biting metal brace held her body stiff and ridged, it always gave her pause as to how somethings could not be undone, severed limbs going unattached disease uncured, backs unamended. Then again, she thought no one should have the power to play God and somethings are just meant to be.

Cousin- Thomas Moon, 11, Deceased

Personal history:
Emma grew up in Wellington, New Zealand with both of her parents and her cousin who lived nearby. When she was growing up her parents were constantly busy and paid her almost no attention; because of this she grew very close to Thomas and they were the stray dogs of their town. When they were hungry or needed something only an adult could provide, the would often go to another families house. She felt like every family in her town was her family because the took more care of her than her actual family.

When she was 7 her father began giving her acting and singing lessons, something she quickly progressed at after hitting a few bumps in the road. She had been in a few of her mother's films and has really enjoyed it.
When she was 10, she and Thomas were out horseback riding but something went horrible wrong. Both of their horses had been running alongside a river near a steep cliff and had been spooked by something, throwing both Emma and Thomas off. Thomas had safely landed in the river but, not knowing how to swim, quickly disappeared under the water. Emma, meanwhile, had somehow landed over the cliff but was floating, not falling. However all she could do was watch Thomas drown. When she finally landed she ran home as fast as she could to tell her parents. That day she learned two things, that she was magic and that she'd never see her beloved cousin again.
She recently got a letter accepting her to Hogwarts and has been extremely excited ever since

Physical Appearance:
Platinum blonde hair that is down to her mid back and usual worn straight. She has a left part and right side bangs. 5'2 and 95 pounds. Her skin is pale but not unhealthy. Emma has unusually bright blue eyes than can sometimes scare or intrigue other people, because of this she sometimes tries to hide them.

Emma is a tomboy and hates anything super girly. However, if there is a party or holiday she can become extremely girly and will dress up. Otherwise she just likes to wear cool and comfortable things and no makeup. Quidditch is something she absolutely adores along with the performing arts. She's shy and silent to new people but can quickly warm up to them. People that are close to her know how she really is-A prankster, sarcastic, wild and funny. She loves doing fun things or getting into trouble. But deep down she is a very loyal and truthful person, she would protect her friends with her life and if someone threatens them or gets on her bad side, you do not want to be in her way.

Boggart: Spiders

Mirror of Erised: Her family more close knit and Thomas being alive and happy once again.

Patronus: A wolf

Amortentia: Wild flowers, mint, and chocolate

Additional information
She is an animagus with her animagus being a large, pure black wolf with her same colored eyes.
She is a talented singer and actor

Role-play example:
"Are you kidding me?!" Emma exclaimed unhappily. Both of her eager parents were trying to explain to their unhappy daughter that in order to get into the train to Hogwarts, she must run straight through a brick wall. Emma looked at the wall like a deer in headlights. She turned to her parents who were smiling and nudging her towards the wall encouragingly. She looked at them and said a bit bitterly"fine then, see you at the end of the year". With that simple goodbye, she grabbed her cart and ran straight at the wall, astonished when she went straight thought it and landed safely on the other side. She sighed in relief, not even looking back at her parents as she boarded the train and flipped down casually into an empty compartment. "I'm home at last" she murmured, looking out the windows at the other eager first years. Her parents, peering at her fro a distance, sighed sadly as her mother stated"I wish she wasn't so cold to us". Her father embraced her mother and replied"I know, I just wish we weren't so busy so that we could've been with her more, especially since Thomas's..."he trailed off silently.

*APPROVED BUT MUST BECOME AN ANIMAGUS LATER*

Character name: Victoria Hayes

Gender: Female

Birthday: April 2

Age: 11

Blood status: Muggle-born

Ethnicity/nationality: Irish, Caucasian, Black

Languages Spoken: English, Irish Gaelic

Place of birth/residence: Dublin, Ireland

Family background and description:
Reidar Hayes || Father || 35 || Alive
Artist
Muggle

Cecilia Hayes || Mother || 36 || Alive
Musician
Muggle

John Hayes || Brother || 13 || Deceased
Muggle

Personal history:
Victoria was born on 2nd April, into a normal family, well, maybe minus the normal. She was given birth to in a musical auditorium while her mother was playing in front of an audience of people, and thus began her future in music and her love for attention. She grew up in a loft in Dublin with her freelance artist father, Reidar Hayes, and musician/composer mother, Cecilia Hayes, and what would appear to be a cluttered and disorganized place to outsiders. Musical instruments, sheet music, paints and canvases were usually seen strewn around the apartment and so Victoria grew up with these creative influences since she was born.

Ever since she could open her eyes she had been exposed to cameras and film, her father often carried around a camera and constantly took pictures of her or filmed her. When she began to learn to stand and walk Victoria always wanted to stand up close to the lens of the camera, and as she got older there are many photos and videos of her posing or dancing. It was easy for her father to capture these moments considering he was usually at home as he had a studio in the basement of the building where she spent a lot of time when she was young; her mother was either out at a performance or with a client or she was practicing and concentrating in their apartment. Once she became older she took an interest in music and began to take piano lessons at the age of five, dabbling a bit with other instruments she got her hands on. When she was seven her mother noticed her voice and she put Victoria into singing classes.

In between this she began going to school at the local public school. The teachers called her hyperactive, disruptive, selfish, different, and rude to the other children and adults. They claimed that whenever she was angry (which happened a lot) or excited, weird and unexplainable things would happen. Her parents disregarded what the teachers thought and only took her energy as taking after their own eccentricities. After getting into a fight with another student, where Victoria was able to pin the other child down and pull at her pigtails, for the millionth time at the age of nine, her parents put her in home schooling. From then on she was home-schooled. Victoria's main friends were usually the tomboys or boys. She wasn’t interested in dolls or frilly, pink dresses like most of the girls; she was more likely to be seen running around getting dirty and muddy with the boys playing games and sports. Her ability to play the guitar also helped her to get along with the boys. Of course, when she got older she eventually got more into makeup and things.

Victoria performed traditional pieces in front of many audiences for her parents but what she really wanted to sing and play was much more in tune with the younger generations. She took the opportunity to play what she really wanted in talent shows. Her influences came in the form of rock, indie, and alternative artists but she also acknowledges and loves the classical pieces that her mother constantly played in the apartment. As a sign of submitting to her own interests, her parents bought her an electric guitar for her tenth birthday.

One day, when she was 10 and a half, she was home alone with her older brother. He walked upstairs and into her room grinning with one hand behind his back, then revealed to her a metal lighter (the ones you have to close instead of just removing your finger). He handed it to her and she opened it. The metal was getting hot, and she didn’t close it; instead, she threw it onto her bed, which caught on fire after a while. She and her brother ran outside, but her brother started to go back inside. When she tried to follow him, he told her to go back inside and that he would be fine; he just had to get something. By this time, the house was on fire, and the neighbors were calling the firemen. Her brother ran inside after promising her he’d be quick. After a while, a piercing scream rang out, then silence. Victoria knew what had happened; her brother was gone. The neighbors held her back, promising the firefighters were going to be there in no time. No matter how hard Victoria struggled, she couldn’t break free. She finally broke down into tears on the pavement.

When she turned 11, she got her Hogwarts letter, and her parents were ecstatic, rushing her to Diagon Alley as soon as possible. When she got all her things, she waited impatiently to be with her own kind; where the ‘unexplainable’ things were normal. She just couldn’t wait ‘til the 1st of September.


Physical Appearance:
Brown hair with natural light highlights here and there; usually left down and straight or curly. She prefers it straight, since she has naturally curly hair. Blue eyes framed by thick eyelashes. She usually has a light caramel complexion, but she gets darker over the summer. She's average height—5'1" at the moment—and weighs 110 pounds.

Personality:
Extremely confidant, loud, dramatic and vivacious; she isn’t afraid to get in your face as she gets a kick out of people squirming. Highly valuing honesty, she is not afraid to tell the truth whether it hurts a person or not, she’s overly honest and straight forward to friends and strangers alike, which does get her into trouble at times but she believes that the truth is better known rather than kept to oneself because the consequences may be greater in the long run.

She may not always play by the rules but she doesn’t do it to annoy anyone in particular. She does it because she believes that it is the right thing to do in her mind causing her to disregard what is proper at times. People label her as trouble and disrespectful to her elders and authority figures, which is really the last thing she wants to be but she would rather be that than change herself for them. To people who are close to her, they see that she has no intention of hurting anybody by her words and actions.

Although, she may make people uncomfortable or annoyed, she isn’t anti-social and does not always deliberately do things to cause a negative reaction. Most of the time she is just trying to help and do what she believes is the right thing. She values the friends she makes and she does have high values and expectations of how a person should act. If a person is rude or disrespectful, especially without any proper reasoning behind it, she will confront and speak up about it. She would prefer them not like her for it rather than them thinking they can get away with it whenever they feel. When you make a friend out of her you can always count on her to have your back. She isn’t afraid to get physical but she does enjoy shouting angrily at people as well; it depends on whatever may come first if they don't both come at the same time.

Due to the way she was raised and influenced by her parents she walks around as though the world is at her feet holding a great confidence in herself and her abilities. Her parents always taught her to be herself, and to not let anybody force her to stop or change the way she is as long as she believed what she was doing felt right. There are things in her life that are more important like her individuality for example. It is rare to see her steer away from her own beliefs and it would take a lot to make her change them. If a person wanted to make something of her attitude she wouldn’t back down from the challenge, but would rather relish the opportunity to kick butt (not so much if it was her butt that was kicked). She will do pretty much anything, planned or spontaneous just for kicks and giggles. She is outrageous and loves to just laugh. She has been known to do just about anything, even compromise her dignity if she believed the situation called for it.

Her humor is rather sarcastic, and it could be either funny sarcastic or mean sarcastic. She would bite your head off with her sarcasm if she doesn't like you, but if you're friends with her, it's a nicer type of sarcasm. She can have a dark sense of humor, and gets a kick out of pranks that could hurt the people she doesn't like, but if that happens to someone she likes, she wouldn't hesitate to apologize and give you the antidote.
She has a few quirks: is a sniffler even when she is healthy, constantly quotes her favorite books or movies, and can usually tell you what book or movie it came from.

Boggart:
Spider

Mirror of Erised:
Her brother alive and well

Patronus:
Fox

Amortentia:
Spearmint, her brother's old aftershave, vanilla

Additional information:
She can play a few musical instruments, her favorites being the guitar and piano.

Role-play example. Role-play as your character in any situation you want.

"Mum, if we don't go now, we'll be late!" a first year girl exclaimed to her mother before running with her trunk to the barrier between Platform Nine and Ten. Her mother, Cecilia Hayes, a Muggle musician and composer, sighed and hurried after her, her black heels clacking against the hard ground. "Be careful, Victoria," she said to her overly excited young daughter. "Mum, even though I haven’t done this before, and neither have you, Professor ______ showed me how to do it, so it’s not going to be a problem. Don't worry, mum; I’ve got this," was Victoria’s reply, causing her mother to sigh again, rolling her eyes. "Alright, then… if you say so. I’m going to have to trust you, since I have no other option. Bye, Victoria. And don't forget to write!" Cecilia called. Victoria ran between the barriers to Platform 9 3/4, calling "I won't!" after her to her mother. She hurried into the train, and walked into a random compartment, sitting down. It didn’t take long for the train to start moving, and she realized she was really late—one of the last people on the train. She looked out of the window as King Cross Train Station materialized in front of her.

Character name: Kyrene Dashurie Seward-Reeves

Gender: Female

Birthday: 10/4

Age: 11

Blood status: Pure Blood

Ethnicity/nationality: English

Languages Spoken: English

Place of birth/residence: London England / Her Uncle's Home

Family background and description: Kyrene's mother Erin (nee Seward) who had long blond hair and sapphire eyes came from a long standing Pure Blood line with strong ties to the Death Eaters. Her father Theodore who in contrast to his wife's lithe stature was a petite man with short caramel hair and hazel eyes, though his blood line was not so starkly defined. The pair fell in love while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where Erin was a year above Theodore. They married shortly after graduation and began their family a few years later.

Kyrene's extended family consists of her paternal grandparents with whom she no longer has contact and her maternal widower uncle Melech who is six years older than his sister and is a long thin man with dark hair and piercing eyes.

Personal history: While Kyrene's parents took no interest in such things as blood status and the like the rest of her maternal family did. To the extent was not apparent however shortly before both the fall of Voldemort and Kyrene's birth when Erin and Theodore had been discovered harboring those considered "Blood Traitors," and "Mudbloods." The young couple were lucky to have escaped with their lives, and would spend the next five years, including the first three years of Kyrene's life in hiding, too afraid to use even the slightest bit of magic and living as Muggles as a way to disappear.

Just before their daughters fourth birthday they were discovered, her parents were tortured and slaughtered by the few Death Eaters who had yet to fall into hiding, her uncle Melech conducting it. Since Kyrene has been his ward and after much coaxing and memory charms remembers almost nothing of the night her parents died, other than fear, screaming voices, and strangers in her home. Melech who's wife died after only a few short years of marriage from an illness that plagued her from birth raised Kyrene to believe that it was member of the Order who slew her parents and to give into his way of thinking. Melech is also, in subtle ways very abusive to Kyrene, physically, mentally, and even sexually and often uses her like an accessory having her beside him much of the time like his own little golden trophy. Kyrene knows that something is wrong whenever he strikes her or pulls her after him tightly by her wrist but doesn't recognize any of it as abuse. Recently Kyrene received a letter of invitation to Hogwarts.

Physical Appearance: A large majority of the girl's looks comes from her mother, she has her long blond hair, rail thin form and deep blue eyes, but her petite height, wide face, and button nose are all her father's.

Personality: Kyrene is by nature a quiet well reserved girl, but this is expounded upon by her uncle's "seen not heard" approach to "parenting." She is often uncomfortable in most situations involving others, or when completely alone because she is accustomed to not have things expected of her as well as to have her uncle with her constantly. She bites her finger nails, even if she's punished for it, and is often caught staring at cracks in walls or chips in paint lost in imagination. She has a keen interest in nature and often gazes out of windows longingly.

Boggart: Hard to say, the boggart would possibly be a jumble of what she thinks an Order member would look like, and her uncle Melech when he's angry.

Mirror of Erised: Her parents

Patronus: A large and fierce bear that would protect her

Amortentia: Pine trees, forget-me-nots, floor polish, fresh linens, and coriander

Additional information: Because Kyrene witnessed her parents' deaths Thestrals are visible to her, she is also a Death Eater through her uncle although she has taken no oath herself, and occasionally accompanies him to secret meetings

Role-play example. Role-play as your character in any situation you want.

Kyrene stood silently act Uncle Melech's elbow as they walked down the long dark hall. Her heart hammered as it always did when they went to such gatherings. She thought now as they strode on, that it was likely due to all the secrecy and the dark grim nature of it all. Not to mention the people, tall and dark each one, always cloaked, masked, and hidden trusting not even their own. Kyrene, momentarily distracted but such thoughts hadn't noticed her uncle halt mid-stride and bumped into him. With an unexpected burst of speed his hand reached around and gripped firmly her wrist both shoving her back a pace and squeezing until tears came to the girl's eyes, a small hiss of anger coming from his lips. If there was anything her uncle hated more than disobedience, it was embarrassment, and Kyrene knew it. Biting her lower lip to keep from crying Kyrene rubbed her injured forearm, he'd yell at her when they got home, and maybe even give her a slap, but at least it hadn't been where anyone could see her error, at least in that she'd been lucky.

Character name: Harley Rae Ryker

Gender: Female

Birthday: December 12th

Age: 15

Blood status: Half-Blood

Ethnicity/nationality: Italian American, Greek, English

Languages Spoken: English, Italian and Spanish

Place of birth/residence: London

Family background and description: Harley is the love child of a pure blood wizard, Antonio Devarough, and a muggle woman, Jennifer Ryker. Antonio and Jennifer met when Antonio was on a vacation after graduating from his last year in school. He left America for a trip to the UK, and at a muggle concert he had been dragged to by his friends, he met native Jennifer, who had been born and raised the only child of her recently deceased parents. They bumped into each other at the concert, and partied into the early morning of the hours, eventually having what would be considered a one night stand. This was not typical behavior for Jennifer, but she was grieving and acting out. As for Antonio, it was not typical for him either, and he was so ashamed and embarrasses that he left without a word or a whisper, and neither ever saw the other again.

Personal history: Harley grew up not knowing her father, or anything about him. Try as she might to get her mother to talk about him, Jennifer never would. Eventually, Harley accepted she would never know anything about the man, and gave up asking. At least she had her mother, who was the only family she had. Her grandparents had passed away before she were even born, and her mother had no siblings. Her mother was sure she had cousins out there somewhere, but she had no idea who any of them could be. Harley showed her first bout of magic at the age of 7 and it freaked her mother out so much, she left Harley at an orphanage and never came back. Harley had been placed on and out of foster homes, but her frequent bursts of accidental magic had them returning her to the orphanage every time.

It wasn't long before Harley were approached by someone from the magical ministry of magic, who had noticed her magical abilities, and though Harley was suspicious of him, the chance to be around other magical children like herself was too good a chance to pass up. So she was transferred to an orphanage for magical children, where she was educated on and about magic until Hogwarts reopened and students were allowed back.

Physical Appearance: Harley is 5'6, and about 120 lbs. She's slender, with long wavy black hair, dark brown eyes, and tanned skin.

Personality: She is a calculating and cunning individual, and distrusts people immediately. Harley never fully opens up to anyone, but anyone she truly trusts she is fiercely loyal to and protective of. She doesn't blame people in general for her life, and she enjoys having fun, she just doesn't trust anyone. Make no mistake, when she knows what she wants she goes for it, and more often than not she achieves in getting it. Her entire personality is completely disarming, because she is charming, mischievous, and entertaining. She has a sarcastic and wry sense of humor, and a playful demeanor. She is more likely to befriend a person than to bite their head off, but she has no problem in seeking revenge when she feels its necessary, or when she wants to prove a point.

She likes bend the rules, and absolutely detests boundaries set upon her. She does everything her own way, on her own terms. She has a habit of keeping her wand tucked behind her ear, and biting her lip when nervous or in thought. She's a smartass most of the time and crosses the lines frequently. Ultimately, she can be one's best friend or worst enemy. Harley doesn't do authority, and will fight tooth and nail to prove a point. She hates being wrong or outsmarted, and will take it personally when either happens. She loves being active and enjoys sports, especially Quidditch. She's a natural flyer, with quick reflexes and a competitive streak a mile wide. Harley also loves adventure and can usually be tied to the cause of trouble, but more often than not she's cunning enough to not get caught. She hates herbology, and finds it mundane work, but loves charms and transfiguration. Harley works mostly on her basic instincts, and when she gets a feeling about something or someone she follows it, which isn't always for the best.

Boggart: Harley's greatest fear is the dark, because she hates not being able to see her surroundings.

Mirror of Erised: Harley's greatest wish is to be happily reunited with her family, but considering she has no idea who her father was, his face is just a blur.

Patronus: Harley's patrons takes the form of a black panther.

Amortentia: rain water and toasted marshmellows

Additional information: Harley likes to wear muffles clothing, she feels its more comfortable, and her trademark is a pair of converse. It's the only kind of shoe she will wear. She also loves the color purple, and enjoys reading muggle books.

Role-play example: When the entrance to the Leaky opened, Harley's brown eyes drifted slowly over to see who was entering now. One thing about Harley, she could almost never control her curiosity, one reason she seemed to attract trouble like a magnet. She wasn't too curious, however, seeing who entered. She had seen him before, she knew that much, but obviously given the fact she could not for the life of her recall his name, she had never spoken with him. When he came over to the bar, she nodded back in much the same way. more out of habit than anything else. If someone held out a hand to shake, so did you. If they smiled and said hi, so did you. If they chose to nod curtly, then that's what they would get in return. Simple.

The brunette set her drink down on the bar, giving up her pretense of actually searching for a distraction in favor of just making one. Just as she slipped her hand into her pocket to grab her wand however, the boy spoke to her. Well, more like talked down to her. As if she hadn't dealt with his type before. Harley rolled her eyes before they drifted away from him. "Do you actually like looking like you have dragon dung under your nose?" She retorted, easily answering his question with one of her own, smirk slipping onto her lips. Target acquired.

Role-play example. Role-play as your character in any situation you want.

Alexander, or Alex for short, though oddly enough no one really seemed to call him that was whistling a happy tune and sipping a golden galleon on his thumb as he strolled with ease through the streets of diagon alley, despite the immense throngs of crowds that hustled and bustled about him. He wasn't in a hurry, and never was. He learned a long time ago that you can't spend your life full of fear and worry, that slowing down was the only way to go, and he took this ideal completely to heart. A woman shuffled past him then in a grand velvet gown of royal purple. She had in her hands an enormous stack of what appeared to be phoenix feather hats, and on her face a very serious expression. Then, it happened and all the hats came tumbling down. His galleon forgotten as it sailed back down to earth the mad busied himself capturing each hat as it fell, some in each arm, one on his head and the last he nabbed in his teeth. The woman looked as him both perplexed and relieved, it was then that she burst out laughing, and then that Alexander noticed her lovely eyes, a perfect match for her dress.

Family background and description: Melech's family on either side hail from a long standing and dignified lines of Pure Bloods. As such they are considered one of the "Old Families" and both he and his parents are very fond of that. His mother, Morgan was a slight woman with raven black hair and amber eyes, and his father, Edgar was a lean man with copper hair and blue eyes. They met late in life Edgar being forty-seven and Morgan thirty-nine but they quickly fell in love and began a family, of whom Melech is the eldest.

Personal history: Melech grew up doated on for the first six years of his life niether his mother nor father believing that they would ever have children. He was also taught that blood purity was all that truly mattered. As a result he grew to be very selfish, self-centered, demanding, belittling and bigoted traits which would last his lifetime through. When his sister was born at first he was appalled, shocked and dismayed as many children in this circumstance are, but soon he grew to love her. When he was eleven he began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he excelled, the hat having nearly placed him in Ravenclaw. By the time his sister Erin began attending he was very skilled and working at a level beyond his peers, but also very haughty and cruel. It was seeing her brother like this that caused Erin to turn away from her families ideals and do the things she did.

Melech became very successful in the ministry after graduating and moved away, he would return when his father died shortly before his sister's graduation, and Morgan his wife would soon follow him dying of a broken heart. Melech took the remaining year off to help Erin cope and graduate, receiving a great and bitter shock when she slipped from her room one night eloping with her long time boy friend Theodore. After this he returned to work where he was happy for several years, then an uprising occurred, and Melech joined the ranks as a Death Eater. It was just before the fall of his leader however that he discovered his sister and her traitorous deeds of hiding blood traitors, he prompted an attack that the Erin would escape going into hiding for years.

Melech took part in the Hogwarts Raid slaying many before tracking down his sister and slaughtering both she and her husband as they begged for mercy. His niece however struck a cord with him, Melech had been cold and unfeeling of anything but bitterness, superiority and hate all his life not even feeling lust but something moved within when he saw her frail and gentle form, and fire ignited and a huger ached, Kyrene was spared and her memories altered. Over the next eight years he raised the girl in both a loving and sadistic manner shaping and molding both a girl who was timid and spiteful, who both feared and greatly loved him. He abused her in every way, being subtle and deft. He still cares for her, but now that she has received a letter of invitation of Hogwarts wishes not only to use her for his own sick pleasures but also as a spy into the school.

Physical Appearance: Melech is a long and narrow man who stands at six foot five inches, with piercing silver eyes, and dark short hair, his lips are thing and forever creased with disapproval and suppressed rage,

Personality: Melech is a very angry, prideful man who has a sadistic pleasure in other's pain, more than anything he hates to be embarrassed and disobeyed and although perpetually cruel he only rarely looses control and often reserves his anger taking it out on his niece or house elf. He is also very very manipulative, using his suave and proper appearance and behavior to deceive and control people, also priding himself on being a true gentleman. Behind closed doors however he is a fiend who preys on her niece without her even being aware due to years of mental abuse and raising her to believe that his abuse is proper.

Mirror of Erised: Power, raw and pure power that is utter and encompassing.

Patronus: Unable to produce a Patronus

Role-play example (at least 100 words). Role-play as your character in any situation you want.



Melech rose from his place in the drawing room and taking long legged strides moved with a practiced silence down the hall and past the library. Coming to Kyrene's room he paused by the door to watch her. She was sitting quietly as she did most days gazing out the window. The soft light fell on her face and throat like a veil, covering her hands which were folded neatly in her lap, and developing body. He smiled as his sharp silver eyes and dark thoughts drank up the image of her sitting there so peacefully, he wonder what she was thinking of, but gave it little mind before continuing down the hall. It was then that he came to the room which was forever unlocked, with an unspoken spell and the commanding wave of his hand the door opened and he stepped inside.

The room dark and dimly lit by black candles which rested on a small table. The room was bare in spots but held in it the shining mask that marked him as well as the black serpent and skull on his forearm as a Death Eater, and a cloak beside it. In the center of the room was his prized treasure however, a glass case filled entirely on wands. And though he did not remember all of their names, he remembered their screams and pleas for mercy, he remembered their anguished cries, and the iron scent of their blood, their traitorous, filthy blood. He opened the case and gently ran his fingers across them, a thrill of excitement ran through his body and his skin burned. Closing his eyes he remembered, and the adrenaline mounted, no one knew who or exactly what he was, and that was just part of the fun.

Kyle was excited, he read the letter over and over again. It was his father who was taking him shopping for school supplies, Kyle grimise slightly to himself, he mother had to be hospitalized, again. She was getting to be very sick, and very weak, it broke the young man's heart to see her this way, and now, thinking about her he regretted his excitement and mentally chastised himself. What was he thinking? How could he just go off and play at magic while his mother lie in a hospital bed dying? No! His brain shouted coming to a halt, she wasn't dying, not now, not ever! He affirmed before turning to his father, "Dad, maybe going to this school isn't such a good idea after all." he said scuffing his foot purposefully on the floor of the cauldron shop. His green eyes tired and weary, Kyle's father turned to the boy only an inch shorter than he himself and placed a hand on either shoulder. "Kyle, you're mother will be fine, I promise, and besides she wants you to go, think of all the wonderful things you'll show her when you get back!' he smiled. Kyle was silent for a moment before grinning turned to his father again, "Are you sure you're not a wizard?" he asked cheekily. "No," his father replied. "But I know my boy's heart." With that the pair walked on.

Lyssie was under a tree reading and she was humming while doing so then she heard rustling behind her so she closed her book and jumped up, ready to attack...only realizing it was her older brother Billy who was three years older than she was.

"Woah there, Lyssie! Careful where you point your wand or else someone will get hurt."

Lyssie put her wand away as her cheeks turned red and she said "hehe...Sorry, Billy I didn't know it was you sneaking up on me."

Billy smirked then hung upside down from the tree he was in and replied, "I know but scaring you is fun. Seeing you jump while screaming is funner than-"

"Watch it or I swear I will do something that will teach you a lesson." Lyssie said in a playful threatening voice.

Character name: Dustin Scudder

Gender: M

Birthday:March 14th

Age: 14

Blood statusPure-Blood

Ethnicity/nationality: British

Languages Spoken: English and a little bit of German

Place of birth/residence: Cornwell

Family background and description He was born in the Cornwell region of the U.K. in which it has supposedly haunted places. He has had restless nights growing up because of it. He is almost sure that he has seen ghosts several times back home and those experiences were usually scary.
He is an only child but his cousin Randy did stay with him over every summer. Randy was there because Randy's parents have to do business in other countries but neither Randy or Dustin know what it is.
Dennis' parents (George and Ellen) are both horse trainers for one of the racetracks around the United Kingdom. Both of his parents were in Ravenclaw but they liked and spent more time with the Slytherin students. So when Dustin was sorted into Slytherin, they didn't mind. "Just respect the Ravenclaws, they can help you" is what they wrote him.

Personal history On the day Dustin received his owl invitation to Hogwarts, the owl bit him. Dustin almost didn't buy an owl for his school pet but Dustin decided just to get a different breed of owl instead. Slowly he did get attached to his pet owl and almost forgot about the Owl that bit it on that day.

Not really being a true bully, Dustin usually relies on his acting and forgery instead. Another thing that he loves is itching powder and sneezing powder. Even though it is a muggle product, Dustin knew that it could be useful as a prank or even as a defensive item. His acting skills at the local theater have been useful in trying to talk his way out of things, bluffing, or convincing people to do certain things or not to do certain things. He even sometimes uses those skills for the good rather for the bad. It just depends on his emotions or other factors that day.

In addition to acting, he is a good, although not a great, singer too. Although with a great voice coach, he could be great. He also has training in forgery that a muggle con artist taught him. He is successful at it too. He just does it from time to time. He keeps a few fake hall passes that look real

Physical Appearance Hair Color: Mostly Black
Eye Color: Blue Eyes
Height: 5' 10"
Weight:155
Distinguishing Features: His nose is slightly bigger than normal
Attire: Dustin would usually be seen wearing his school uniform. On the days that he is not, he is seen in blue jeans, sneakers, and a striped beige and purple shirt.

Personality: Dustin is sometimes clumsy and felt like he is cursed by a powerful wizard to be unlucky. But Dustin is not sure if the curse is real or just in his mind. He is not a wimp and has above average strength. He also has a bad habit of sometimes burping at the table in the Great Hall. He even sometimes 'forgets' to apologize for doing so.

His mood changes depending on the day. He can be, to some extent, friendly to others. There was a 50% chance that he could be somewhat friendly with those outside his House.the more scary or creepy looking ghosts, and the Death Eaters. Sometimes he has to be- because of his unlucky tendency when he is NOT nice.

Ironically he does seem to have bad luck if he get too mean, cruel, sarcastic, or crooked.
He realized that that if he is a nicer and kinder, thing goes much better for him. Then he would have a small to moderate amount of good luck for a short while. He would however most likely do those nice things out of frustration. Being nice to those outside his House is not something that he normally would do. He hopes that he just can be barely nice enough for things to go well. He feels like a fake or hypocrite doing it. And he really does not want to do it. He feels 'forced' by fate to be nice sometimes. That is why he is grumpy from time to time

Boggart (your character's greatest fear):the more scary or creepy looking ghosts

Mirror of Erised (your character's greatest wish):

Patronus (the form your character's Patronus would take):Mostly Black Raven with a few noticeable white feathers in its wings.

Amortentia : ?

Additional information (anything else you want to add about your character):He worries about the Death Eaters discovering that he has an unlucky streak and that he truly does not really want to help them. He also resents anyone who disrespect Trelawney since he hope to pursue divination as his main course when he is old enough.
