-waves at Crash and KS.- I think I'll make a Slytherin girl.
Assuming there's no overwhelming reason that it should be a boy? I'm really quite flexible when it comes to this sort of thing, so I'm happy to fill gaps, if there are any.
What year are you going to make him? And do you have a preference for his build/style?
I think I'll make him a first year, assuming that a new year is about to begin? That way the surprise of being put into a hated house (by his family's opinion) will come as a full surprise.
As for build, I am thinking someone kind of light and slim. In the background I have in mind, he was always a 'Chaser' when the family got together and played Quidditch together in a somewhat secluded part of the forest that almost surrounds their home. Granted, I don't expect him to become a Chaser at Hogwarts unless a spot opens and he passes tryouts, but it gives some wriggle room.
Beyond dark hair and hard eyes...do you have a type in mind? Lanky, muscular? Tall, shorter? That sort of thing.
More of the taller, lankier variety, perhaps with longer hair. The closest image I can find is this one
, but I don't know the character model.
Also, what with the hate on for Slytherin?? Not all the snakes are evil people!
I know that, but in the background, his family was started when a Slytherin and a Hufflepuff fell in love in the time of Hogwart's foundation. However, that Slytherin became a dark blight after doing something terrible to the family that the family has NOT forgiven. Thus, everyone born in that family has been Hufflepuff. Of course, I won't make a family tree THAT far back as that would be insane. O,o
Depending on age and build...the first person that came to mind for me was a young Vincent Cassel.
Oooh! He could certainly work!
