I might have a few dates wrong. I'm bad at math. Then again so was J.K Rowling, she explained herself there are a few inconsistent dates for certain events in her books.
From everything I've gathered it's presumed the Harry Potter story took place from 1991-1998. Which leads to our Story taking place starting in 2008 since I plan to have my main character be about a year older than Ted Lupin.
Here's the template I promised. I'm still having trouble getting good reference images for my character's bio. I'm also working on a more detailed background, but for now I'll leave you guys with a simple intro so you know a bit more what my character is like, more to come.(Reference Image)Name: Year of Birth:
(Rather than age because the RP series will go through each year in the school.)Gender: Appearance:
(Image placed above Bio, if no image, provide detailed description here.)Wand:
(Material, Core, Image if possible, but not required)Status:
(Student or Teacher*)House:
(Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff)Blood:
(Pureblood, Half-Blood, Muggle-Born, Squib) Of course the future Dark Lord will strongly prefer purebloods and HATE Muggles. Since a Squib cannot perform Magic they cannot be a student at Hogwarts though the possibility is open for additional characters once the teacher slots open.Animal:
(If they have any pets such as Owls, Cats, Rats, Etc.)Background:
(Where they're from, interesting tidbits about them, history with magic, family history, etc.)
*Teachers are closed currently until we get enough students.
----My Characters----Currently Work in Progress
I was inspired by this image when I was thinking up Giren
But I wanted a photo reference instead of just a drawing to better portray facial features.
Name: Giren Morgan
Year of Birth: 1997
Wand: (First) Black Palm, 14 3/4 inches. Dryad Hair Core (Second, Obtained 4th year) Ebony Miniosa, 7 inches. Phoenix Talon Core
Animal: Speigel, New Zealand Dwarf Dragon (3rd Year)
Background: Unknown to Giren, his mother had a brief affair with a young and talented wizard before marrying the man who Giren believes to be his father. Giren was born during the Second Wizarding War with his mother being killed by Deatheaters shortly after his birth. He was left in the care of his Muggle father who, after seeing what the deatheaters could do, feared and hated wizards. Most of the time Giren was left to his own devices and mostly ignored by his father. It wasn't a terrible life, but it was painfully dull and empty, which lead Giren to seek out something greater for himself, he was eager to become a student at Hogwarts when the letter came, but his father was not, at first Giren was forbidden to go, but Giren snuck out early that morning, hoping to run away. After realizing Giren's plan, his father gave in and decided to allow Giren to go to Hogwarts. Since the death of Giren's mother, Giren's father had a hard time facing her parents, leaving Giren unfamiliar with much of his mother's family. On his father's side Giren's great-Grandmother was a German immigrant to America after escaping the war, she was very strict and this attitude rubbed off on Giren's grandfather as well as his father who always had high expectation of Giren and had little regard for failure at anything. The family lived in America until Giren was 8, when his father recieved a job building furniture for private jets in Britain. Giren's mother was a Gryffindor with a talent for potions and magical history and a quick memory when it came to her other classes, and her talent caught the eye of a rival student in Slytherin (who would use his affair with her to anger his parents whom he was at odds with. Eventually they would be the ones to find and kill her.) Aside from being Deatheaters, Giren's biological father was wealthy and well-respected, his family came from many lawmakers and politicians known for their Anti-Goblin and Anti-Mudblood sentiments. (Giren's Great-Great Grandfather was in the wizard equivilant to the KKK). They claim to be descended from Merlin but this is pure speculation due to vague historical records regarding the famous wizard.
I'll have more on classes, teachers, and other details soon.
