Jim Haven



Gender: Male

Age: 16

Birthday: December 18th

Year at Hogwarts: 5th

Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

Brief History/Family Background: Let's start this off from when Jim was little. He was an odd little fellow, always curious and wondering about things that seemed to happen to him and not anybody else. For example, his little private school in a small Irish town. It was second grade, and they let the kids out for recess. Jim loved recess. He and his friends always played tag. Today, it was muddy. It had rained the previous day, and all the kids were ecstatic to go outside, and when the doors opened, the little bundles of energy shot out the door, Jim being one of the first ones. Followed closely by his friends, their friendly little game of tag commenced and Jim was the first one 'it' went for. He giggled, a small kid's laugh, as he ran away from the person chasing him. He looked over his shoulder, running, and couldn't see in front of him. Well, his little rain boots stomped on dried mud as he ran. He looked in front of him for a split second before looking back over his shoulder and mud splattered everywhere. Jim closed his eyes as it splattered on his jeans and t-shirt and hands when he shielded his face from the mud. What had happened?
His brain processed everything seconds after it had happened. The dry mud was once again hydrated into gooey wet mud again. Just like that. It was in fact a strange occurrence, but nothing for Jim to get suspicious about. However, it was enough for his friends to point fingers about. They gathered around the fallen person who was now brown with only speckles of color on him, almost fully drenched in the substance. He yelled kicked and screamed at Jim accusing him of having thrown the mud at him causing him to fall down. Jim, innocent, denied all accusations, but the teachers wouldn't stand for it. It was supposed to be a prep school, after all. He was expelled and Jim's family moved, yet again. Again, Jim wasn't aware of the location exactly his mom had chosen, as it was always random. One thing is for sure, more strange things were sure to come.
----------------------------------------
A muffled thud on the wall and a crash of a lamp. Jim gulped. He turned the doorknob of his new room and peeked out a small crack and into a kitchen. Shouts and voices came from his parent's room across the hall. He silently and stealthily slipped through his door and tip-toed down the hall to the door to his parent's room. More shouting. He hated it when they fought like this. It felt like so often the would, and they seemed so close to divorce. Jim used to always be in tears when they would start to fight, especially since he knew it was about him. He was in third grade now, going into fourth in a couple months. He should be allowed to know what was going on, right?
He pressed his ear on the door and the words were clear what they were fighting over.
"YOU ARE NOT SENDING HIM AWAY TO THAT- THAT- PLACE!!" his dad bellowed, seeming to find no better word than just 'place'.
"DO YOU HAVE ANY BETTER IDEAS?" his mom yelled in return. Jim wondered if the neighbors could hear, but probably not. Maybe this is why they always got houses with thick walls. "HE IS GOING TO GET THE LETTER EVENTUALLY, WE CAN'T JUST RUN AWAY FROM THIS, HE HAS TO KNOW WHO HE IS!" Jim raised an eyebrow. Who he was? He thought he already knew who he was. An outcast of sorts that bad things happen to. Not wanting to hear any more, Jim slipped away silently back to his room and he curled up on his bed, thinking about what place they could possibly be sending him to. And what about this letter?? These thoughts drifted through Jim's mind all night, and he was unable to sleep.
The next morning his mother entered his room early, the sunlight barely beginning to flow into his small window. She sat on the bed as she always did after the fights between parents. She was surprised to find him awake, but sighed. "Honey," she began. Jim mentally braced himself for what was to come. What was to come? "Your dad and I...we've been going through some rough times, and I don't know how to put this..." she trailed, trying to put together proper words. "Your dad and I, we think it would be best if we split. The marriage isn't going to work," she finished. The cold harsh words of truth. "I knew I shouldn't have married a muggle," she sighed under her breath. He did not know what those words meant. Jim was hardly surprised. He guessed that deep down inside he figured it was going to happen eventually. He nodded. His mom nodded, tears glistening in her eyes. And they just sat there in silence, his mom weeping and him staring off into the cold distant space.
----------------------------------------
Jim zipped the zippers to his two brown luggage cases, sighing under his breath, for once again, his family had decided to move. Move where? It was always someplace different. This time, Jim honestly didn't know where he was going to end up. For all he knew they could be flying out of the country. After all, he was only eleven and didn't understand the arguing between his parents about whether they should send him to a regular school or not. He wasn't very sure what other school they could possibly send him to, but he trusted their judgement. Or, at least, his mom's. His dad always seemed uptight and furious at the mention of a 'special' school. Jim had no idea what they were talking about.
A sudden rap on his window made Jim jump a small bit in surprise for his current room was two stories above the ground. He was shaking slightly from the abrupt noise and slowly turned, raising an eyebrow when he saw two curious yet sharp eyes staring at him through the glass panes. Completing the eyes was a large white bird with splotches of brown speckling it's back, and a heart shape curving around it's head. It was curious to see an owl here, especially at daylight hours in the suburbs. Jim made no move toward the window or away, curiosity and a twinge of fear holding him glued to the spot. His eyes drifted and locked onto a small slip of paper clamped in the owl's sharp beak. This seemed even more out of the ordinary for Jim, as it looked like a mail letter...but what was it doing with the owl? His first thought jumped upon the assumption that the owl indeed had stolen their mail, so he now went to the window, unafraid, and pulled it open, grabbing for the mail. The owl gave it over, but hooted as if annoyed by the snatching. Then, it turned and silently flew off and over the houses of the neighbor's and was gone.
Jim slowly shut the window, dazed by the bizarre encounter. His fingers fumbled with the latch as he locked the window again and turned, stepping over to the bed and plopping down next to his luggage bags. He carefully pulled off the wax seal holding the envelope close and withdrew a piece of paper as his eyes scanned the page and his mouth fell open.
-------------------------------------------
The rain spattered the side of the cab window as the taxi drove Jim through the streets of London. He had never lived here ever before, and was feeling a tad bit nervous. The taxi pulled up and told him this was the place. He nodded his silent thanks and handed the money to the cab driver and stepped out into the rain. Stepped out onto the street of London in front of a large train station. Stepped out into his future.

Physical Appearance: Jim is of above average height, and is quite lanky. He isn't really one to consider muscle a factor nor male/female bonding a priority unless attracted to one, so he tends not to work out, but he stays skinny, probably because he doesn't eat much. On top of his head is short-cut dirty blonde hair, and his facial features are sharp with kind hazel eyes to go with. He didn't see himself as attractive, though he was a bit sharp, but he did not care. The school was to learn, and make friends along the way, if that was the case. He also didn't tend to dress fancy except on occasion, and he could really get cleaned up well if he was motivated for any reason.


Personality: Jim is has a sort of wandering spirited essence to him. He is curious and distant at times, and at others stern and unyielding. At these certain times he tends to avoid people, wander off, and get caught up in all new experiences so that he can become a little more gentle once again. At these gentle times, he often devotes himself to his practice. He is studious and logical and makes decisions based on rational thoughts until he gets fed up which is when it circles back to his stern personality. So basically, his personality is one big loop. When he has nothing to work on, at these rare, rare, times is when he socializes. Now, Jim is most certainly not the most charismatic person out there, and sure he is very oblivious to social conventions or colloquialisms, however, he can make a great friend. He is trustworthy, for one. Why would he bother giving up a secret? It would just start drama, and he would be in the middle, and why would he want that. No, on the contrary, he hardly would ever ever consider giving away someone's secret. Sometimes he is actually the person anyone goes to when they need to get something off their chest because they know he won't breathe a word. Second, he would make a good friend because unlike other people who would just ignore someone when they fall, metaphorically, he would try to pick them back up again.


Wand:  14.5 Inches Oak with Dragon Heartstring

Talents: Jim is exceptional at transfiguration, and is usually complimented by the teacher a lot, making others angry but he is oblivious to this fact. He is also quite good at charms, but once his over-focus led to a spell going wrong. It was just a bit of sparking though, not much. His friend Oliver had told him that he needed to relax while casting simple charms spells, which is something Jim would have never thought of doing. Jim also likes quidditch, however he only likes to play the seeker part. He used to play beater, until he was injured, and decided to not do that again.

Pets: A barn owl, Soren.

Other: FC: Lucas Till

Dan Byrne





Gender: Male

Age: 17

Birthday: February 16, 1995

Year at Hogwarts: 6th

Hogwarts House: Slytherin

Brief History/Family Background: His dad works at Gringotts wizard bank and his mom is a stay-at-home mom. His family is wealthy and pure-blood and doesn't affiliate with muggles. His brother, his twin, is also a big part of his life and they are practically inseparable.They are, however, blood traitors as some would say. They are not prejudice against half-bloods or muggle-borns. Unfortunately, fear of getting harassed by Dan made other people scared to befriend him so he was always extremely lonely, and still doesn't like to strike up conversation. None of the other kids played with him except in Quidditch. He joined a peewee quidditch team when he was little and the kids on the team were forced to play with him, so his only comfort is quidditch. From there on he made it his life goal to be on Britain's quidditch team.


Physical Appearance: He has spiky short brown hair with sharp brown eyes. His skin is tanned and he has muscle from playing quidditch. He stands slightly shorter than average, but it is hardly even noticeable. He has a strong chin feature. He also has a strong grip for the bludger's bat and he is slightly intimidating but that is a common misconception since he is from a house with a bad reputation.


Personality: He is quiet, and often is found alone, even though he strives to make friends, people just don't like him. He is a blood traitor so slytherins don't like him and he is a slytherin so no one else likes him. He strives to be social, however. He doesn't really try to rely on anyone. He has grown up without friends, though he isn't mean to anyone who tries to understand him. But hardly anyone wants to talk to him. He is also great at all sports, magic and muggle studies. Quidditch is is best sport, and always plays the part of beater. He is talented enough to play seeker, however he finds that being a beater has much better benefits to his muscles, so obviously he is also athletic. He also seeks to become very successful and will do everything in his power to obtain his quidditch career.


Wand: Dragon heart string, 11 1/2 inches, oak, swishy

Talents: Quidditch obviously is his main talent. More specifically would be keeper and beater. He is also great at the two muggle sports track and football. He also takes a keen interest in defense against the dark arts. It's the only school subject he has taken a liking to.

Pets: A fruit bat named Tawn

Other: FC: Logan Lerman

Brenden James





Gender: Male

Age: 16

Birthday: May 23

Year at Hogwarts: 5th

Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff

Brief History/Family Background: Brenden comes from an irish family. His mother's name is Elaine, and his father's name is Rory, however, they are both muggles. This was a huge problem for Brenden when he turned eleven, but more of that later. When Brenden was a kid, he had a great relationship with his mom over his dad. His mom was kind, but she was strange. The older she got, the more detached she got from the real world. She would read books, watch movies, play chess with someone she thought was sitting there, but wasn't. Brenden himself always stood by his mother, even when she went a little crazy during this time. His father, on the other hand, was completely sane, but he was an architect. He was always gone on business trips and such, and could be gone for months at a time. Brenden never really learned any sports and when he went to school before Hogwarts, he was always a really quiet kid. When he was eleven, it was extremely hard to get him ready for Hogwarts. His father was away in America, leaving only his mom to look after him. She didn't really understand what was happening when they received the letter. Brenden developed to be a very independent boy by this time, however. He was enthralled by the idea of being away from home, living on his own, and even more so, studying something he previously was extremely doubtful of. He sent off an owl confirming that he would in fact be there. He packed up his suitcase and flew to London, where he said goodbye to his mom. She had left him with bunches of money, which he had to get exchanged at Gringotts. From then, he started his adventure.  


Physical Appearance: Brenden is extremely tall for his age. Not just regular tall, but he is often taller than a majority of his teachers each year. His hair is a nest of messy brown hair, which he can never tame. It always appears to look as if he has just slept, and to cover it up, he is often seen with a hat (usually not a wizard hat as those are "lame"). He has a couple freckles here and there on his cheeks and neck. He needs glasses, and has a pretty healthy habit of wearing them most days, however he sometimes decides not to. Like previously mentioned, he's tall, with not much of a build. Since he never learned any sports, nor quidditch, he never worked out. The one thing he can do that is physically demanding is swim. His build is pretty thin, but he has that thin swimmer's body.

Personality: Brenden's two most dominant character traits are that he is independent and quiet. It may seem shocking to find someone in Hufflepuff to not want many friends, but rest assured, Hufflepuff is the right house for him. Though his friends are few, and he doesn't feel the need to rely on them, he is extremely kind and trusting. Any secret, he can keep. Mostly because he doesn't understand why it would even be worth spreading. Brenden is also very curious, and studious, but not too intelligent. He has to study a lot to learn a basic concept, and makes up for lack of intelligence in the ability to over achieve.


Wand: Unicorn hair, 10 inches, yew reasonably pliant

Talents: Not "blessed" with many talents, Brenden is only very good at a couple things. One, he can be extremely focused at times, which helps with charms and potion-making. Two, he is a great swimmer. Since it's the only sport he knows, he devoted a lot of time to it.

Pets: A white-footed sable ferret, Botte

Other: FC: Dylan O'Brien

Juliann Plutarch





Gender: Male

Age: 17

Birthday: August 9th

Year at Hogwarts: 7th

Hogwarts House: Slytherin

Brief History/Family Background:
Family
Katy Plutarch- Katy is Juliann's sister. She is a bright witch, already graduated from Hogwarts (she was a Ravenclaw). Katy now works at the St. Mungo's as a healer. In school, she helped Madam Pomfrey in the Infirmary, and because of a great letter of recommendation, Katy landed a high-ranking job there with a very stable income. Juliann's parents always hold him up to Katy's standards that she set in Hogwarts before him.
Samantha Brave- Juliann's mom, who decided to keep her last name. She is a full-blooded witch, however she doesn't really have a stable job. She is a substitute teacher at Hogwarts from time to time, but other than that she is a stay-at-home witch. Katy provides enough for the two. There's not much to say about her; she loves Katy, cares minimally about Juliann, and every Christmas she makes Julian go to his dad's house rather than hers (the two are divorced)
Richard Plutarch-Richard is Juliann's father. He is a half-blood. and works at the accidental magic reversal department in the Ministry. He cares a great deal about Juliann, and is the main parent pressuring him to do well in school. During christmas, Richard happily takes Juliann in, however Juliann just wishes he could stay at school.

History

When Juliann was around 5, his parents got divorced. Juliann doesn't remember much about it, except that there was a lot of shouting. His parents were just too different. They didn't get along enough, and so they split. Juliann was taken by his dad, and Katy was taken by her mom. So, Juliann grew up in London, his father having to work at the ministry. Juliann went to a private school for a while before he went to Hogwarts. His father stressed on him the importance of learning English and Math and such before he went to a school purely for the magical subjects. Juliann did fairly well in this muggle school, but he lacked ambition. Even when he went to Hogwarts, his first few years were quite uneventful. He had good grades first year, average grades second year, and it went downhill from there. At the beginning of his sixth year, however, his dad warned him that if he didn't do well, there would be consequences. So, Juliann has been struggling to keep up his grades.

Physical Appearance: Julian is a very handsome young man. That's an understatement. Because of Juliann is constantly subjected to flirting by any student (since he swings both ways), he gets bored a lot, so he tries new and extravagant things sometimes. He changes his hair color one day to something vibrant and then the next it is back to brown. Sometimes he straightens it, but usually it is the same curly mess. His skin is somewhat browner than most, but one wouldn't say he looks african-american or latino. He has striking blue/green eyes, which he gets compliments about often. He has dimples, and a very straight white smile. He stands fairly tall around 5' 10" or 11". His build is above average when considering muscle. He remains lean, but it is still evident that he has been keeping fit.


Personality: Juliann is fun-loving. Extremely energetic, he is an ideal chaser on the Slytherin quidditch team. He loves a good joke, even at the expense of others sometimes. However, his quick-paced personality makes him bored quite often, which is probably why he doesn't do his homework. Boredom leads to curiosity. Juliann is definitely one of those people that you can find wandering the halls after hours, or doing something he's not supposed to. Although, Juliann is sneaky so it wouldn't be too easy to actually catch him doing these things. One the downside, Juliann is distrusting. Knowing that he wouldn't trust himself, he finds it hard to trust others as well. Whether assisting in practical jokes or having his back in a duel, Juliann selects very few people to do this. Another very unpleasant thing about Juliann is that he doesn't usually take interest in the feelings of others. Everything is about him, and if people don't like it, well, sucks. He doesn't have friends because of this, but hey, who needs them anyway?


Wand: He has an oak wand that is 11 inches with veela hair, springy.

Talents: Because of his energy, he is exceptional at being a chaser in quidditch. Although not yet on the team, Juliann aspires to one day maybe be on a professional team or something of the like. He is also okay at offensive spells, but since he doesn't usually apply himself, he typically doesn't use magic much. He is more into physical activities like sports. Juliann is also a talented singer, but fears to sing in front of audiences because he thinks he will be ridiculed.

Pets: None
