I have Edgar's impressions up! If anybody has any problems or ideas or what-have-you, feel free to send me a PM about it, and we'll work something out.

For Gustav, since he's brand new, I won't post any impressions for him yet; but I will do ones as time goes along, and he gets to meet and interact with others.

Ooo, the relationships seem tough. Anyone want to hash out some details with me and see what your character is to Alex and perhaps vice versa?


BTW: I'm fine with whatever is already put up for Alex, so no worries ^^

Name: Valerie O'Reilly 
Nationality: Irish
Blood Status: Valerie is the daughter of a pureblood man and a muggle woman, and thus a half-blood. She loves them both equally although her life is greatly influenced by her heritage.
Age: Valerie is a sixteen year-old girl (thought it'd be interesting as I normally only play 18 or older)
Year: 4th
House: I would prefer her to be in Slytherin, but as this isn't my choice, I'll leave it up to you.
Description: Valerie stands about 5 foot 5 inches tall and her body is average for girls her age, having the curves every young woman has. Her hair is honeyblonde and reaches her waist, her eyes are green and surrounded by dark yet refined brows. Although she takes good care of her body in other ways, she bites her nails. She does that out of the great stress leaning upon her shoulders and tries to quit, but fails miserably at every attempt.
Personality: Valerie is a very kind girl, but she can be very snappish when someone offends her in any way. She is a caring person and will do anything it takes to reach her goal. She is very ambitious and doesn't fear getting dirty hands in order to gain what she feels rightfully belongs to her. Valerie can be very apathetic to people she doesn't like and will never doubt to speak her mind about them, either.
Background: Being bullied a lot as a child, Valerie is a reserved young woman and doesn't tell people much about her past and/or heritage. There is much more to her than just that, though, and she will show that to the right people. She's more or less introverted.
Interesting Fact: Valerie enjoys playing muggle platform games such as Super Mario, but hides this from her peers.
Wand: Her wand is standard length, african hardwood. The core consists of dragon blood.
Pet: Valerie has a red striped cat, named Bertie.

I have relationships/first impressions up. Those are bound to change as discussions start. PM me if you wanna hash things out.

Also, I personally use Tinypic. The code below I think is how you insert pics.

*Smiles* Not much written hon. So I went with what I had. Not a threat based on what's there, as she doesn't involve herself in petty squabbles or many athletics.

oh its no problem. I'm just messing with you.

Besides, I always leave my character's backstory light. That way, if somebody was a great idea (like "hey, my character are your's are irish. what if they childhood friends") then it's easy to put in.

Well, first impressions are up, and bound to change as play begins. Some are simply based on somewhat shallow impressions based on what the sheet offers. If anyone wants to hash out things between Darci and others, I'm happy to work with anyone... who knows, she makes a rather nice shoulder ordiment. ;)

James, I normally do the same thing with my characters, especially with 3-5 years of potential interaction.

Aiden, these can be intimidating, but once you get going it is cake.  Your character strikes me as a proper type, so how does he feel about the seemingly less cultured or cruder types?  Also, take what others say about your character as something to work off of.  Rogue is right that they will change often.  While not required , I recommend writing them in the character's voice, really helps the other players get a feel for their mannerisms and such.

Rebecca, your character looks good.  For her to be 16, she will had to have skipped a grade early on.  I am okay with this, and it may help explain why she is so overwhelmed with classes now.  With the exception of Charms, Transfiguration, and Defense Against the Dark Arts, she will have trouble in the majority of her classes.  She has 1 point to spend on specialties.  Also, no Qualities or Drawbacks were chosen (which is fine).  Lastly, did you look over the wand information in the Setting Info thread?

Blinkin, not seeing your impressions either.

My character's wand is yielding, though not too flexible. It's not floppy in the slightest but not stiff as board either. I pictured this'd have the nicest feel to it, somehow (I know this might sound very strange). Her specialty is astronomy, I'd say.

Sounds good Rebecca.  Bear in mind that both her wand wood and core are uncommon, but that's not a bad thing.  Go ahead and add the 1b to Astronomy and then she is approved.

And yeah, Slytherin is definitely shaping up differently than expected.  Lucian and Vidya are the only pure bloods.

So Valerie skipped year 1 at Hogwarts, meaning she has been at the school for 2 years, starting her third, though is classified as 4th year.

Ok everything should be taken care of now. sorry bout that.
Xavril Robeson
Name: Xavril (Zave-Rill) Robeson
Nationality: American
Blood Status: Muggleborn
Age:  19
Year: 6th
House: Slytherin
Description: At 19 Xavril is a hair over six feet tall, long dark hair, and an athletic build.  He has several tattoos including his clan symbol, warrior band, and the sign of the wolf.  When not in school robes he typically wears comfortable casual clothing that is easy to move in, often with a leather jacket or pull over to hide the scar on the base of his neck. 

Personality: Xavril is his own person.  He believes in accepting who he is as an individual in mind body and spirit.  Because of this he is not afraid t make a fool of himself.  He says what he means and doesn’t accept other people’s drama.  He walks his own path.

Background: Xavril was born for the Panimaha tribe of the Skidi clan, of the Pawnee people. He was raised with tales of spirit guides and working from the time the sun came up until the sun went down when the tribe gathered at the large fires and shared the fruits of everyone’s combined effort in a large family meal.  The Panimaha believe in the saying “it takes a village to raise a child.” As such he had many fathers and many mothers, but his grandmother by blood had been the last witch doctor of the tribe.  She was described as being able to heal any wound, change the shapes of plants and stones, make it rain in a drought; even become the spirit wolf to ward off evil.  Even muggles today scoff at the notion that any of this could be true and write it off as Indian superstition.  Normally they would be right.  But, Xavril’s Grandmother, was a real live wand wielding witch.

Xavril and the other children his age was like any other child outside the reservation.  Children of both sexes have toys and games, the girls inclining to dolls and "playing house," while the boys turn to bows, riding, and marksmanship.  They were all carefully instructed by their elders, not only in household arts and hunting methods, but also in the code of ethics, the traditions, and the religious ideas pertaining to the tribe.  Xavril was formally enrolled into the first degree of the warrior society and given his first tattoo through an initiation ordeal at an early age of 5 years.  At about 12 years of age Xavril made solitary fast and vigil to obtain communication with the spirit guide which was to be his protector through life.  Xavril spent several days alone in the forest before he felt the wolf spirit calling to him.  He performed the tribe’s ritual and fell into a trance.  He awoke feeling no different.  Later that day some of the men from the tribe came to check on Xavril and found a white wolf.  Believing that the wolf had killed Xavril one of the men stabbed the wolf through the neck.  When he did the wolf re-took human form and Xavril lay dying on the ground before the search party. 

They rushed him to Xavril’s grandmother who sent the men away and healed him without much difficulty and told him all about the magical world and a school where he could learn magic. But it was across the ocean in England.  Xavril thought all night about magic and whether it was real and then an owl arrived with an invitation to attend Hogwarts.  Xavril took the invitation and started with the wizarding preschool to learn about the world he was stepping into and then when he turned 14 he started his first year proper.  Since then he has studied hard and done well for himself in the classroom and on the pitch.

Interesting Fact: Xavril has Heterochromia; he has one green eye and blue eye.

Kdyami, Xavril is approved.

Quidditch time!  Here is how I have everything organized so far.  I just need Penelope, Alexander, and Desiree's preferred positions. 

Gryffindor

Chasers: Katrina Ravenshire
Beaters:
Seeker: Stevie Arai
Keeper:

Alexander D'Artagnan VII (any)

Hufflepuff

Chasers: Cameron Joyce
Beaters: John Summerby
Seeker: Petra Vinter
Keeper:


Ravenclaw

Chasers: Darci Donavon
Beaters: Gabriel Brewer
Seeker:
Keeper:

Penelope Blackthorn, Desiree Elvire Gullory (any)

Slytherin

Chasers: Vidya Ayers
Beaters:
Seeker: Xavril Robeson
Keeper:

I am really tying with limiting the size of school Quidditch teams.  Maybe each House team only has 2 Chasers, 1 Beater, 1 Keeper and 1 Seeker?  The pro teams would be larger, still, but that would mean 7 or 8 less NPCs just to fill out the teams.  Does this work with everyone?
