i like.... and he's a McGonagall too *grins* oh and cute *snickers*

ugh I wanna post my Chars, but.... pfft. I'll edit if we don't get the right char to show up *grins*


name: Kutseena and Inali Sia
age: 18 (two days after the First day of school)
gender: Female / Male
race: Native American (Comanche)
Blood Status: Half Blood
position: Student
Signature Spell: Her: Apparition and Variants / Him: Fire Whip
Wand: Her: Rowan/Coyote Fur/Seven and a quarter inches / Him: Hawthorne/Kit Fox Fur/Seven and a quarter inches

mirror, mirror on the wall: Kutseena stands at about five foot five inches, and weighs in at a whopping one hundred and twenty-one pounds. She dresses in Traditional Native American style outfits of both sexes and dependent on mood. Any jewelry she wears will be of Native American design, and will usually have blue turquoise in it as well. Yes, she wears the Eagle feathers too and the blue stripe under her eyes.

Inali stands at about five foot eleven inches and weighs in about roughly one hundred and forty-nine pounds. Like his twin sister, he tends to dress in Native American Traditional clothes, though he sticks to the male versions. He too wears the feather, and his hair is long. Any jewelery he wears will also be in Native American design.

in their heart of hearts: At first Kutseena and Inali are quiet and reserved. Outwardly they seems stand offish and haughty. This is actually far from the truth for either of them. Amongst their people though, when they first meet strangers they adopt a stoic stance and what many call a “Stone Face” expression. They are watching and gauging the new people and learning what they can about them. After all, in the past, the Pale Faces have never dealt fairly with The People.

Both have sharp quick minds. If she’s interested enough, she can excel amazingly well in a subject. If she’s not interested, she usually doesn’t bother beyond being able to pass. A major frustration to some of her Instructors. Unlike his Twin, Inali, whether he likes a subject or not, will excel at it. Coming from a Race of people that had to be hyper aware of their surroundings in order to survive, they are also very observant and very little misses their notice, especially when they are together.

Once Kutseena decides you are friend though, the person will quickly learn that she smiles often, and has a sharp humour. While they don’t laugh often, when they do one can tell it comes from the gut. She’s been known for a practical joke now and again, nothing that will cause harm or put one in danger, but still can be rather embarrassing or painful to the one receiving it. Among their People, a practical joke is a test of Character and how well you can laugh at yourself. Inali usually takes a bit longer than Kutseena to warm up to people, and his smile seems more condescending then her open one. Like he knows some private joke he has no intentions of sharing. He’s more than happy to join her in any practical jokes and vice versa, though his practical jokes can be a bit darker than hers, usually resulting in some minor harm, nothing permanent, or deadly, rest assured. Both are Bisexual.

their dark past: Kutseena and Inali come from a Pure Blood Mother and a Muggle Father, thus making them Half Bloods, though they are full blooded Comanche. Their Father holds a mundane Muggle job as the CEO of the Tribe’s gambling casinos, while their Mother is the Medicine Woman and Shaman of the Tribe on the Reservation.

At a young age thier Magic manifested with the ability of Animal Speak. They can understand and converse with any animal, four footed, winged, or crawling. This does not include swimmers or bugs though. It was no surprise when Kutseena and Inali got their Letters of Acceptance to the Salem Witches Institute. Both their parents were proud, and their Mother fully expected Kutseena to follow in her footsteps to become the next Medicine Woman, and Inali to become the next Shaman. With the opening of Dragonclaw ten years ago though, it wasn’t going to happen. While at Salem Witches Institute, Kutseena learned of the Apparition Spell and was rather good at it. She practiced it long and hard to perfect it, and then moved on to a variant of the Spell that allowed her to transport others. She sees the Spell as handy for all manner of things. While Inali found the Fire Whip Spell. Seeing a practical use both Offensively as well as Defensively, he has mastered this Spell with some interesting results.

Their Father supports them in their choices and is happy for his children to spread their wings by going to Dragonclaw and seeing what they could become. It is a wonderful opportunity, and a way for them to become something more than their parents. Their Mother on the other hand is not so supportive, after all her family has been the Wise Ones of the Tribe for hundreds of generations. It was good enough for them, it is good enough for Kutseena and Inali. Needless to say, Mother and Children are a bit estranged.

Both parents are a bit worried about the stirrings that has been heard about from across the Pond. While Voldemort and his Terror didn’t really touch the Wizarding Community in the Americas, The two times he rose to Power was watched very closely. While their parents trusts that they can take care of themselves and keep each other from harm, their Mother tries to use past history and the Prophesy as an argument for staying here and being the next Wise Ones to the tribe. Never mind there are others willing to take up that role.

On a side note, Native Americans take a different view to the Wizarding World. Unlike the Whites, who hide the Magic from their Muggle counterparts, Native Americans do not. Wizard and Muggle mix and live together. More often than not, you can over hear a conversation about some Witch or Wizard talking about a spell or potion to a Native Muggle as you would to hear them talk about the weather.

If you're not certain if he should be a teacher or student, why not make him a Grad Student and Teacher's Aid...perhaps to some lazy Professor who has his TA doing most of the actual work teaching the classes??

Sounds plausible 

Offline Caela

Or he could be teaching a couple of classes as part of working toward his PhD (or Wizarding equivalent) in Education and looking to work as a full Professor when he's done with school.

Like an internship... Good ideas Carla. A way to be both, student and teacher... ish lol

Offline Red OfferingsTopic starter

I like those ideas! This doesn't have to be the first year for anyone's characters to be in the college. It is ten years old. This will be Lily's second semester. She does her own interning in the ministry of magic and is kind of balancing that while trying to find her path.

So I heard guys get free tacos here...

Seriously though, I haven't done a HP game in a long, long while, so this has my interest. Would it be possible to have a student who's working to become a pro dueler on an international competitive level? I figure if Quidditch is like the football of the HP world, dueling might be the boxing/martial arts version. And who doesn't like a good fight?

Name: Kiran Reed
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Race: Human / Caucasian
Blood Status: Half-Blood
Position: Student

Signature Spell: Arc Bolt, nicknamed "Thor's Hammer" among most that are familiar with the spell, causes a powerful bolt of lightning to shoot from the caster's wand at the target. It can arc around objects, providing a solid offence against opponents using solid objects as shields or to simply try and catch them off guard with a flanking manoeuvre. Proper arcing requires great finesse though, so full mastery of the spell is limited to a small pool of dedicated and talented wizards and witches who took the time and effort to master it.

Wand: 9 and ¼ inches, Birch with a Chimera Scale core.

Mirror, mirror on the wall: Kiran stands tall at six feet and two inches and possesses a toned, well trained figure. His hair is dark and unruly and his eyes a silvery blue.

In my heart of hearts: Kiran is one of those people who never seem to run out of juice, especially when it concerns their greatest passion. With an optimistic and straight forward personality, he rarely lets anything get him down, instead viewing it as an opportunity for improvement and challenge to better himself. While very open and positive in nature, he is by no means naive and often very aware of his surroundings and his current situation.

Because of his training and experience in dueling he can keep a cool head in a fight and is thus unlikely to panic, even in dire situations. While not as knowledgeable as certain other people, he is quick to think on his feet and adapt to situations, where possible.

My dark past: Pressured from a young age to succeed in life, young Kiran entered Hogwarts wondering early on what to do with his life. He wandered from hobby to hobby, never really finding something that could hold his interest. It was not until the summer before his fourth year that he found his true calling while attending an international dueling tournament in France with a friend. Instantly enticed by the fast pace and often ingenious spellweaving of professional duelers, he decided to make the world title his life's goal.

From that point on he began dedicating almost every spare moment he had to studying, practicing and improving his fighting skills. Noting the sudden change in their child, his parents, a pair of successful business entrepreneurs in the potions branch, supported him by buying him various books and training equipment.

After graduating from Hogwarts at the age of seventeen, Kiran made his debut in the amateur dueling scene. Gaining quite a few matches from the get-go, he soon caught the public's eye with his talent and upbeat personality. Within three years he had managed to work his way into the European top ten of the amateur league     an amazing feat for a rookie with only self taught skills. This caught the eye of a talent scout for the Norwich Nightmares, a high ranking dueling team competing on a world-wide level. However, because of new rules and regulations in the professional league, Kiran is required to have the proper papers before he is allowed to compete. This lead him to Dragonsclaw University of Wizardry and Magic, where he now studies the finer arts of dueling and magic in general in order to claim his place as professional dueler.

*falls over laughing hysterically*

Hey hey all you hilarious people! I am Coyote, a very recently approved member. I am a friend of phoenyx and I would love to join in, as a canon character no less!

name: Albus Severus Potter
age:23
gender: Male
race: Human
Blood Status: Pure Blood position: Student
Signature Spell: An astonishing natural talent for potion making
Wand: 13in/Black Walnut/dragon heartstring core
mirror, mirror on the wall:
A thin, hollow youth, Albus takes after his father in many ways. He shares the bright green eyes of his father and grandmother. His intense stare coupled with his height, 6ft 3in, gives him an intimidating look, although he walks awkwardly as if he never really got used to his growth spurt. His jet black hair is badly cut and sits messily on the top of his head, as if he always has something better to do then to tend to it. He is often seen wearing suits of darker colors, mostly black and dark green.
 Picture

in my heart of hearts:
Albus has always been a troubled and insecure boy which he hides behind his serious exterior. Dealing with the tremendous burden of living up to the expectations of his parentage was not easy on him at all. In contrast to his parents and siblings Albus has always tended to be more reserved and thoughtful, carefully considering and calculating his actions. He is definitely not what you would expect from such a bright and happy family, but there are definitely shades of his fathers initially more reserved personality within him.

Albus is a caring individual and his inability to express this had made him incredibly lonely. He is awkward socially, abhorring all forms of small talk, and his few close friendships have arisen only because those certain people were patient and willing to get to know him. That being said, those who befriend Albus are rewarded with true loyalty. At the end of the day Albus craves connection with others and is pleasantly surprised when he finds it. Those who make an enemy of him might expect retribution at some point, but overall he is too rational for things like petty revenge. He has great ambition and intelligence and wishes to reform the wizarding world and bring it up to modern standards, and in that endeavor he will not let anyone or anything stand in his way. 

my dark past:
Albus Severus Potter has always been acutely aware of his father’s fame. From an early age people have expected great things from him, telling him tales of his father’s glory, and although his parents did everything they can to shield him they couldn't for long. Albus was set apart from an childhood. The first Slytherin in the family, there were whispers that he was a new Dark Lord from the moment he was sorted. Many were acutely disappointed to find that he was simply a hard working do gooder, more of a sullen version of his aunt Hermione then a budding Tom Riddle.

Albus Severus did his best to fit in and make friends, but he found a hard time of it, especially when it came to girls. He was socially and physically awkward, and terrible at Quidditch. But he did manage to make a few good friends along the way, recognizing that if he ever really wanted to fulfill his dream of becoming Minister of Magic, he would need to brush up on his social skills. Albus found his true magical skill to be the methodical craft of potions, something he seems to have inherited from his grandmother. After graduating from Hogwarts, Albus decided more education was for him, hoping he could have more time to build his own reputation rather than making a career in Wizard government based on his fathers name. In addition, he was hoping to meet more like minded people to soothe his loneliness.

Albus does not have many complaints about his life, he still belongs to an enthusiastic and loving family and although they do not understand his demeanor and attitude they still embrace him and love him for it. At the same time, he struggles to find his place in the world and among society, trying to build his own name for himself rather than being defined by the names that he bears.

Now if you'll excuse me I'll be in the corner enjoying my tacos.
