Yay, character sheets~~Name:
With his dark hair and fiendish good looks, Sirius is the man of many girl's dreams. His pale grey eyes offer a stark contrast to his hair, lending them a hypnotic charm. Sirius is taller than James ever was, but no less well-built. He likes to keep a little stubble and sideburns which lend their quality to his roguish nature. Personality:
Sirius strives as much as possible to be different from the crowd. That began when he was eleven, and put on the Sorting Hat in front of the rest of the school. His family expected him to be in Slytherin, the way they had been for centuries, but Sirius chose Gryffindor, just to be different.
Although Sirius pretends that he doesn't care much about grades, he understands the importance of excelling at school, especially since it is his wish to gain independence of his family as quickly as possible. With the recent rise of the Dark Lord, and with his family's fervent support of Lord Voldemort, this has become all the more of utmost priority to Sirius. That said, he is very thankful to be able to excel without much studying. Of course it helps one of your best friends is the studious Moony!
To the disappointment of many girls, Sirius doesn't quite care much for a relationship now. I mean, a fling or two, yes. But settle down, and get married? Sirius takes one look at Prong's fate, being at Lily's beck and call, and he shudders.
Despite that, Sirius is as loyal as they get, even if it might take some time to earn his trust. He would never betray the other Marauders, or Dumbledore, whom he reserves the highest respect too. History (be as detailed as possible):
Sirius was born the oldest son of Orion and Walburga Black. The Blacks were a family that was always very proud of their pureblood status. While he was growing up, however, Sirius always found this view stiffling and narrow-minded. His father was a strict man who expected nothing but perfection from his young son. His mother, loathe to let her son mingle with the muggle neighbours, kept Sirius indoors all day, teaching him to read and write with her left hand always ready to give him a backhanded smack if he made a mistake. It was thus that Sirius led a lonely, miserable childhood.
Two years after Sirius was born, his parents had another son, Regulus. Initially, Sirius took on the role of a protective older brother, shielding Regulus from the harsh treatment he had been subject to. Sirius needn't have worried, however, because Regulus was obedient and intelligent, everything Orion and Walburga wanted in a son.
While the two boys were growing up, it became apparent that they were no more alike than night and day. Regulus took on his parents believes and rules readily, while Sirius rebelled openly, and suffered the punishments. It did not take long for Sirius to learn that open rebellion was not the best solution, however, and tried to be more like his little brother. Silently, though, he prayed for the day when his Hogwarts letter would come.
When he finally turned eleven, he was not sorry to leave his family behind on the platform of the Hogwarts Express. He was already looking forward to new beginnings, you see. He met James Potter on that very train ride, and secured his enmity with Severus Snape too. Already, things were beginning to look good.
His parents did not take well to the news of his Sorting, of course. They threatened to take him out of Hogwarts and have him transfered to Durmstrang. But they did not want relatives and family friends to gossip about it. No, better to leave him where he is, as if it wasn't that big of a deal. Anyway, better Gryffindor than Hufflepuff, right?
The more Sirius spent at Hogwarts, the more he began to see the flaws in his parent's steadfast belief in the importance of keeping blood pure. He began to spend less and less time at home during the summer, and more and more time at his best friend James' house. The Potters, to his delight, took him in willingly. Being in their house, Sirius could feel the warmth and love in the family. This was a true family, not like the harsh beatings and stinging words he endured at home.
Now, with the rise of the Dark Lord, Sirius' parents began to pressure him to break off ties with Gryffindor, long associated to be the 'losing side', and swear loyalty to Lord Voldemort. Sirius managed to hold them off for long enough, but, fearing that they will take him to Voldemort against his own will, Sirius ran away from his home. It was then that his mother, in a fit of anger, blasted his name off the family tree, effectively disowning him. Although his uncle Alphard had left him a large inheritance, rendering him essentially financially independent, Sirius chose to stay with James for a little while. He now looks for an opportunity to repay the Potters for their generosity and kindness towards him.Sexuality:
Scat, water sports.Other:
Sirius always felt a tiny connection to Remy, because she is a Gryffindor from a family of Slytherins, same as he is.
Also, Sirius secretly cares very deeply for Regulus. He doesn't think Reg appreciates it very much, though.
