I do like the fourth task... perhaps a PUB (Potter's Unfinished Business)
I have a rough first draft of my own character, refinements will be made but this way we can see how the character sheet that Joslyn was kind enough to type up for us works... if anyone sees anything that should be added to the sheet just bring it up now...Name: Dominic Blackwell
Age: Thirty Two
Height: Six Foot Two
Weight: Two Hundred and Ten Pounds
Blood Status: Pure Blood, as far back as anyone has been able to trace his family tree
Affiliation: Neo-Death Eater
Strength: Quick Reflexes which have made him one hell of a Quidditch player and in school he excelled in Defense Against the Dark Arts.
Weakness: Transfiguration was always a bit of a struggle for him and Ancient Runes was a class he dropped at the first opportunity.
Dominic was born into a privileged life, his family was not Malfoy rich but they were very well off. As an only child he was given just about anything he could ever want and not hearing no no ended up doing more damage then one might expect to the developing young man.
He is a man who is confident to the point of arrogance at times and yet he is often able to get away with it, blessed with a charisma that makes people forgive such a character flaw because they often want him to like them. Determined and driven Dominic will do whatever it takes to get what he wants, when he sets his eyes on something he desires then it will be his, he does not see obstacles as something that block his path but instead as temporary inconveniences that will soon be overcome (even if those are people). The charm and charisma can often mask the darker side of his drive and determination, if there is a situation where he isn't getting what he wants he will often be quick to anger, hiding it behind a smile while the rage burns cold in his heart.
He is a believer in Pure Blood Superiority, it isn't something he displays publicly but he is a pure blood and he is
superior to most others around him... the world would just make more sense with Pure Bloods in charge. History:
Dominic was born about a year after the fall of the Dark Lord on the fateful night that he went to kill a Young Harry Potter and was sixteen when the resurrected Dark Lord took control of Wizarding Great Britain and killed Harry Potter. He grew up hearing about how Lord Voldemort may have been the last hope for the Pure Blooded Wizards of the world, how if he had lived then he would have ushered in a new golden age for Pure Bloods... His family was of course quietly pleased when the Dark Lord returned.
Of course by the time that happened he was practically grown and had started to form his own opinions. In his time at school he met plenty of mixed blood students and even more muggle borns and while none of them seemed to be obviously flawed at a glance he noticed a lack of respect for the rich tradition they had found themselves a part of, as though they wanted to drag Muggle traditions into the clearly superior world of Wizards. There was no major event that he could point too but in a hundred small ways over his time in school he began to appreciate the views of his parents more and more.
Of course his time at school did more then just teach him about Pure Blood Superiority, he did rather well in his studies and graduated in the top five of his class academically and was the top rated Student Chaser in North America, quickly drafted to play professional Quiditch after his graduation. Though the Chaser is not often considered the most glorious or flashy position Dominic earned a reputation as one of the most talented players out there, a regular on the roster of many a Fantasy Quidditch Teams.
But the glory days can't last forever, he is getting a little bit older and the sport is not a forgiving one, recently he has been considering retiring and following his fathers footsteps into politics, a few contacts that his father had made over the years putting him in touch with the Neo-Death Eater movement.... and Dominic has been swiftly rising through the ranks.
