  17. Pallando Calrissian

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    He’d spent most of the night running across rocky terrain, leaping over gaping chasms, and through dark and foreboding forests in his efforts to evade the pursuit of several dozen dementors. He could feel himself getting tired and he knew that he could not keep this pace and level of physicality up for much longer. It was then that he decided he must stop and face them before he succumbed to exhaustion entirely. Pallando came to a stop, turned to face the approaching dementors and raised his wand. With great authority and confidence, he shouted the incantation: “Expecto Patronum!”. Cast forth and emerging from the end of his wand was the corporeal form of a huge feline which had spots all over its bright-silver translucent body. It resembled a leopard in appearance if not in size and color. There, standing between him and the dementors stood the patronus of a Nundu. In the presence of this powerful and mighty patronus, the dementors, right down to the very last one, shrieked and immediately fled the area as fast as they could fly. Once they were gone and, at least for the moment, danger seemed not to be present, Pallando let out an audible sigh and collapsed on the ground…the Nundu patronus standing over him protectively. Suddenly the patronus disappeared and in its place, on the ground before him was a scroll, rolled tightly and tied off with a thin red silken bow. He untied the bow and unfurled the scroll and gazed upon it. It read: You have been cordially invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was then that he abruptly awoke, so unexpected was the message. Rubbing his eyes and stretching his limbs he slowly became more and more alert. He sat up on the side of his bed and then removed the “Dream Maker” that was on his head. It is the magical headband his mother, an inventor, had made for him when he was but a small boy. She would implant stories within the headband that would then unfold for him in the form of lucid dreams where he was the hero fighting all sorts of creatures and evils. After having gotten washed up and dressed, Pallando made his way to the kitchen table for breakfast. As he approached the table, he couldn’t help but stare in surprise and bewilderment at the presence of a tightly rolled scroll, bound with a thin, red, silken bow…laying on his breakfast plate instead of food. Leaning against a glass of orange juice was a card with multicolored lettering that read: Happy Birthday Pallando. And sure enough, upon quickly unrolling the scroll he found, scrawled upon the inside, the same invitation from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry that he’d found in his dream. It wasn’t until he’d looked up from the scroll that he realized his parents were both standing in the doorway, one with a candle strewn cake and the other with wrapped gifts, waiting for him to notice them. Once he did, they made their way into the kitchen, put what they held down on the table, and offered Pallando many hugs (and kisses from his mom).
  18. Lucky Haverly

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    The midday sun blazed overhead as Lucky sprinted to the top of the hill. The delighted squeals of his classmates echoed throughout the field as water balloons rose and fell above them. Lucky wiped his brow, droplets spilling over his knuckles and collapsed on the grass. He had fought valiantly with his allies but the water fight was still raging on with no sign of stopping soon. His shirt clung to his collarbone, drenched with the enemy’s attacks, and Lucky panted, trying to catch his breath so he could join the battle once more. It was then that something in his peripheral made him flinch. At first, Lucky suspected it to be a rogue water balloon aimed for his head. He instinctively dodged to the side, jumping up onto his feet to ready his defence. But the black dot travelling through the sky didn’t seem to be falling; it was flying. Lucky squinted, trying to make out the outline of the unidentified flying object. As the black dot travelled away from the sun’s rays, Lucky let out a small exhale of disbelief. It was an owl, and it was headed straight for his house in the distance. “Time out!” Lucky bellowed, though no one seemed to notice, too busy flinging more balloons. Almost tripping over his own feet, the boy ran as fast as he could back home, knowing exactly what awaited him there. “Dad! It’s here!”
  19. Zelda Fox

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    “One more of the birthday girl!” The flash sent Zelda blinking backwards till her shoulder blades bumped into the parlor wall. She instinctively reached up to steady the three-tiered tiara perched atop her head. Her Mum had done her best to secure it with fistfuls of hairpins. but the arrangement grew more and more precarious as the hours ticked by. Zelda risked a look at the mantle clock: five till eleven. At night. That meant the festivities, planned by her parents to be the final soiree of the holiday season, had been going on for nearly twelve hours. The first four hours -brunch with her friends, games in the garden, and presents afterwards -had been lovely. Then the adults started dropping round. Before she knew it, Zelda was being stuffed into a pink dress, tiara-ed, and passed from one old person to the next. It was miserable. And nothing at all like how she had hoped her eleventh birthday would go. All she’d wanted to do was curl up with her new copy of Astronomer’s Through the Eons. But, nooo, she had to stay awake for the quote-unquote ‘big reveal.’ Zelda smothered a yawn against the back of her hand. Two more minutes. She had made it this far, it wouldn’t do to doze off when the end was in sight. Zelda helped herself to another cream puff. Maybe the sugar would keep her awake. Chewing did a good job of passing the time, too, along with providing the perfect excuse to avoid talking to the clump of guests en route to the punch bowl. Finally, after what felt like ages, the clock struck eleven. An explosion of purple smoke filled the room. Glittering spangles came next, then a rain of bubbles that parted to reveal her beaming parents. The crowd cheered. Zelda started to roll her eyes, only to freeze when she saw the parchment envelope tucked beside her father’s pocket square. A dizzying wave of happiness broke over her all at once and for the first time in her life, Zelda raced into the spotlight. No ponies. No awful, feathery cloaks. Just Hogwarts. Wonderful, beautiful Hogwarts. It was the best present she’d ever gotten.
  20. Pallando Calrissian

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Pallando Calrissian Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Do you understand that, if you portray a character that has an identity which you yourself do not occupy, it is your job to educate yourself so as not to actively promote negative stereotypes? Yes Character Face: Josephe Gordon-Levitt Character Masterlist Entry: Gordon-Levitt, Joseph - Pallando Calrissian PW Staff says: Hi there! Welcome to PW. Can you please confirm whether your desired face is Joseph Gordon-Levitt or someone else? I get no other results for 'Gordon Levitt'. Thank you! 200 words (minimum) on family history: Pallando Calrissian is the son of Lando Calrissian (Researcher for the Department of Mysteries - Unspeakable) and Palla Tanlar (inventor - no current inventions of great note...but has several promising projects being worked on) and he grew up living with his parents at 221b Baker street in the Marylebone district of the City of Westminster in the West End of London, England. He has a great relationship with his parents as they have insisted upon "working from home" (in that they apparate themselves to various locations during the work day and then apparate themselves back home after work, to ensure their daily presence in Pallando's life so that they can partake the cultivation of his growth and development. Pallando is an only child and the closest thing he has to a sibling is his cousin Alatar Greymantle, whom he views and treats just like a brother. Pallando possesses a love of Quidditch as a result of the steady stream of invitations made by his cousin, Alatar, to attend numerous pro and amateur Quidditch matches over the years. The two cousins also became very close due to the fact that Alatar has come to stay with his family during almost every major holiday (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc) for upwards of a week or two each visit, for as long as they both could remember, due to the constant absence of his parents. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: Alatar Greymantle 100 words (minimum) on personality: Pallando is an extroverted introvert. He has a considerable amount of social grace and acumen at his disposal and uses it as needed, but he definitely prefers the solitude of his own thoughts. He has acquired the scientific and analytical mind of his father, as well as the creativity and imagination of his mother, and his ADHD (whether for better or worse) causes him to be easily distracted, yet is able to become laser focused when a subject or matter grabs his interest. When his interest is so peeked, he becomes inspired to pursue that interest with great determination, even to the point of taking considerable risks in its pursuit, and he can be very cunning and resourceful when so inspired.

  23. Elpis Sallow

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    An exasperated sigh fell from slightly pouted lips. She was in a good mood, no doubt about that. No, the sound was pointed at the graying man who held the position of being her uncle. The joggers and oversized jumper she chose to wear were already a sore spot with the man. But the dramatic sunglasses seemed to push a certain button even more. "Uncle Cedric... it’s not so nice to stare," she said, crossing her arms over her chest and following the taller man through the crowded thoroughfare. Her uncle was a man whom El had always thought built of wealth and mystery. She aimed to be much like him; failed most of the time. She rolled her eyes behind the darkened shades. He did much of the same and went back to looking through his phone. He was her uncle from her mother's side, and so she was often mistaken for his daughter. She never minded and was certain he didn't either. But there were times when his dark eyes locked on hers and she could see the pain of loss there. Following him into the car, she wondered when he would look up and finally talk to her about what was so important. So much so that she had to leave the mall, and more so, her mates. "So, uh, what is so important that I had to leave? You said we had to talk." She had yet to remove the glasses from her face and took the opportunity to glance out the window. Silence followed her words, she glanced back at her uncle to see the troubled expression on his face again. Elpis had seen it more and more often. It would have worried her had she not known the look to become a permanent fixture to his persona. "What is it, Uncle Cedric?" El looked at him, removing her glasses; fixed her mother's gaze on him. The stop for all stops. "It's time we had a frank talk about your mum. And her alma mater. Your father's as well. You have quite the lineage, tornado girl." The words left his upturned lips as a thick letter landed in her lap. Picking it up, Elpis looked at the green ink her name was written in before glancing back at her uncle. "Okay..." The word trailed off. "She was eleven, too, your mum. It's like it was yesterday." Elpis sat back in her seat as the car began moving and her uncle spun a tale that she wouldn't have believed from anyone else.

    Character Name: Elpis Sallow Have you read and understood the rules of this board?:Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Do you understand that, if you portray a character that has an identity which you yourself do not occupy, it is your job to educate yourself so as not to actively promote negative stereotypes? Yes Character Face: Whitney Peak Character Masterlist Entry: Peak, Whitney - Elpis Sallow ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Blair Everett was a usual girl from a well to do family. Until she received a letter that changed her life. Leaving behind her family, including her twin brother, the young girl left to Hogwarts with a hopeful outlook. One that didn’t include meeting Theon Sallow. The Halfblood turned out to be more than she could ever imagine and they fell in love. Just a little after being married, Elpis came along, a bouncing joy to join their family. Elpis grew up loved and spoiled, seeing the world as nothing but a gift giving factory. Until the world took away the greatest gift she’d been given. Both Theon and Blair were killed in a head on collision while traveling home from London. Elpis was adopted by her uncle and raised as a muggle. Cedric didn't expect to raise his sister’s child, let alone by himself. But does one ever really plan for the worst outcome? Memories of her magical life grew dimmer until the life she had was the only one she remembered. The man provided her with the finest education and the life that he and his twin had been raised with. Elpis never wanted for anything, save for a little more time with her uncle. Raising Elpis was no small task, especially when the girl began moving things without touching them. He was able to keep the news to himself for the most part, having no real close family and friends in his surrounding area. Elpis’s life was normal for the most part, besides these random moments of weird happenings. But her uncle always had an explanation for these moments. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: N/A 100 words (minimum) on personality: Elpis has never been one that a teacher would call bright or hardworking. A typical slacker of sorts, the young girl is more oft to spend her time giggling in the back of the class or doodling on the edge of her classwork. At home, she tends to leave a mess on any surface she touches. Her uncle lovingly calls her his little typhoon because of this. She tends to be an indecisive creature, dropping habits as often as she picks them up. She was seven years old, however, when she discovered her love of a good lie. One would be hard pressed to distinguish her deceitful nature.
  25. Verona Cooper

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    Ms. Verona Cooper Flat 74 7th Floor Marigold Heights Liverpool Verona ran her fingertips over the fancy and slightly outdated looking envelope and the crimson wax seal, admiring the sharp contrast between the two textures. “What’s that? Lipstick or something?” She mused aloud, and chipped away at the seal with her fingernails until they were stained pink. Whatever it was, the young girl couldn’t help but notice how fancy and performative it appeared. It was next level grandeur. Not only did the letter come with a decoration, it was delivered by owl! That meant it couldn’t be anyone she knew, the council had a list of pets that a person could have in their flat. It was a short list…only a sentence in fact, one that read: NO PETS ALLOWED. The owl had been resistant to let the letter go, maybe because she didn’t look like a Verona Cooper, or the bird had such incredibly refined standards and could barely believe that this letter ought to go to such a recipient. Whatever the reason, after a brief struggle – the blonde was victorious. “Sorry.” She was quick to apologise, “-but that’s my name.”
  26. Verona Cooper

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Verona Cooper Have you read and understood the rules of this board?:yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? yes Do you understand that, if you portray a character that has an identity which you yourself do not occupy, it is your job to educate yourself so as not to actively promote negative stereotypes? yes Character Face:Saoirse-Monica Jackson Character Masterlist Entry:Jackson, Saoirse-Monica – Verona Cooper ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Verona’s relatives only appeared in a series of every changing names and blurry photographs. Her circle is so small, the only family she can count, or confidently recognise is her mother: Maeve Cooper. Verona is an only child, raised far away from the wizarding world in a high rise flat in Liverpool. The two have a near unbreakable bond, but respect the boundaries each have put in place. The young girl rarely asks about grandparents or cousins, and in turn, when Verona performed very early signs of magic that could not be explained – her mother would pretend they were perfectly normal. Verona’s father is another matter, she has never met him or asked any questions – in fact the story changes every time. Once, he was a skiing instructor, who left the two when Verona was a baby to pursue his career in a more appropriate climate. On another occasion, whilst Verona expressed her hatred for maths homework, Maeve explained how disappointed the girl’s father would have been – having come from a family of accountants. Her varying accounts described him as exciting, dull, incredibly clever, a bit dim at times, someone with a brilliant sense of humour, but incredibly serious and could never tell a joke to save his life. Verona could see that each imaginative story about her dad was just that, a piece of fiction, but she enjoyed her mother’s creativity all the same. More importantly, she was happy with her chosen family – her mother, her muggle neighbours, and her school friends. Existing familial relationships to on board characters:none 100 words (minimum) on personality: At her very core, Verona is a respectful child. She would consider herself inquisitive, but has never pushed her mother for information about her family because she trusts Maeve enough to know it isn’t worth asking and is likely still a fresh wound. Like her mother, she enjoys creativity – but wouldn’t consider herself a creative genius. Never the leader, always the follower – Verona takes direction incredibly well but believes she would never know what to do with an independent thought if she had one. Books and word of mouth guide her thought process, but opinions are often stolen from others. That being said, Verona doesn’t follow a rulebook – she finds that one principle could cancel out another, or there might be a law that makes no sense at all. Without the proper explanation or justification, Verona Cooper will not be told what to do. A world without rules is often confusing, but Verona rolls with the punches and tries to trust the process (Despite the fact it makes her skin crawl!) When it comes to magic, the witch knows little to nothing, but with the right books and a good leader she knows she will be fine.
  27. Anastasia Crowley

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    Anastasia received her letter by owl on her 11th birthday. She barely glanced at the post as she already knew without a doubt, due to her pedigree, that she would be invited to the school of Hogwart's. Though she knew she would get in, it WAS exciting to be leaving home for the first time to begin making her own way in the world.
  28. Zelda Fox

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Zelda Fox Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? I will! Do you understand that, if you portray a character that has an identity which you yourself do not occupy, it is your job to educate yourself so as not to actively promote negative stereotypes? Yes Character Face: Lucan Gillespie Character Masterlist Entry: Gillespie, Lucan - Zelda Fox ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Gerard Fox and Serafina Emory probably shouldn’t have gotten married. Not that anyone had tried to stop them. They were a beautiful couple, after all, and on equal footing in everything that mattered. Both came from magical families with international roots -Sarafina’s mother was Italian, Gerard’s great-grandfather a German who slid from Wilhelm Voss to William Fox upon settling in London -and a limited risk of producing squibs. They were well-off separately and very well-off together. They even loved each other. Had done since they met at Hogwarts all those years ago. There was just one problem: Gerard and Serafina were idiots. Truly stupid. Their combined intellect was as shallow as a half-drunk puddle. Between them they shared about a quarter of the common sense bestowed upon an average human being. Highly suggestible and always eager to be on the ground floor of the next big invention, the couple waft from one party to the next, cutting checks for cauldrons that change color in sunlight and rings that turn your fingers blue when it’s about to rain. If it hadn’t been for their iron-clad trust funds limiting withdrawals, the pair would’ve lost everything a thousand times over. And if they shouldn’t have gotten married, well, then they absolutely should not have had children. And yet, six years into their marriage, along came Zelda. Griselda, technically, though her parents never called her by her full name. Relatives would speculate that it was because they didn’t know how to spell it. Or, perhaps, that they had forgotten it altogether. Ambrose came next a little over two years later, then Hadriel-called-Heidi three years after that. The family took up residence in a townhouse tucked away in one of London’s more magical neighborhoods. Zelda and her siblings had a happy childhood filled with love, their parent’s parties, and a veritable hoard of well-meaning relatives. When Zelda got her Hogwarts letter, everyone heaved a massive sigh of relief. Until they realized they would need to find someone else to help balance the checkbooks. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: N/A 100 words (minimum) on personality: Zelda is a bright, pragmatic child who came out of the womb with more sense than either of her parents. Her intellect is regarded as a minor miracle in the Fox family and, as such, has been nurtured from an incredibly early age. Every Sunday she and her Grandfather Fox pore over the Sunday Times together, trading articles and bickering about crossword clues. While Zelda doesn’t consider herself to be too competitive, there’s no doubt that she will do everything that she can to secure a spot at the top of her year. So much of her identity is wrapped up in being ‘the smart one’ that anything less than a perfect grade is bound to provoke a meltdown. As the only introvert in a house full of extreme extroverts, Zelda has developed a tendency to withdraw early from social situations. She would much rather curl up with a book in a quiet corner than perform in one of Ambrose’s plays or Heidi’s dance routines. Though she knows she will miss her family terribly, a part of her is relieved at the prospect of trading the raucous house for the calm tranquility Hogwarts castle is sure to bring. Even though she values her time alone, Zelda has no trouble making friends. Quite a a lot of this has to do with how open minded she is: until a person proves that they are absolutely awful and not worth knowing, she’s more than willing to give them a chance. Once that chance is ruined, though, there’s no going back. Despite preferring a cold shoulder technique, Zelda isn’t afraid to speak her mind, either. If it comes down to it, she will happily tell someone all the reasons that they are a terrible person straight to their face.
  29. Anastasia Crowley

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Anastasia Crowley Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Do you understand that, if you portray a character that has an identity which you yourself do not occupy, it is your job to educate yourself so as not to actively promote negative stereotypes? Yes Character Face: Julia Stiles Character Masterlist Entry: Stiles, Julia - Anastasia Crowley ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Anastasia is the daughter of Aleister Crowley & Urmina Crowley (nee Sparrow). She is an only child raised in the wizarding world, in a well known and established pure blood family. The family household is located in Scotland in the wizarding village of Portree, on the Isle of Skye. Anastasia's immediate family lives in a well appointed mansion, as they are the head of the Crowley family, both in word and magical bloodlines. As the head of the Crowley family, Anastasia's parents hold very true to the belief that wizards must be pure blooded and magical. Aleister has one brother, whom he does not associate with or acknowledge as he was born a squib. Rowena, Aleister's mother, refused also to acknowledge such an embarrassment to the family name and did her utmost to ensure that no one knew of Fergus' (Aleister's brother) horrifying existence. Aleister has carried on this tradition, and has never spoken of Fergus' existence to anyone, including his own wife and child. Urmina comes from another distinguished wizarding family, the Sparrows, who immigrated to Scotland in the late 1400s, the family originated in the village of Soportujar located within the Alpujarra region of Spain. Both the Crowley and Sparrow families hold very antiquated and bigoted views of anyone who is NOT pure blood. The family also believes that muggles aren't even worth use as a household servant, they will only employ magical attendants. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: First cousin to Cordelia Crowley 100 words (minimum) on personality: Anastasia is a product of her upbringing, and does not believe that non magical beings have any value. She is well-spoken and very upfront about her family's views and beliefs. She is not cold and uncaring, but does seem like this to some upon first meeting her. In truth, she is excited to start any new chapter of life, but is held back by the prejudice she has been groomed to embody. Anastasia is very driven to be the best, and insecure if she feels she has failed in any way. She views herself as someone who should be obeyed because of the family standing she has, both in Portree or at Hogwart's.
