  2. Theron Rayne

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

    It all changed with a knock on the door. Theron was sitting at the dining table working on some schoolwork when it sounded through the small London apartment. The boy lifted his head and watched as Dave, his foster parent, pulled himself up from in front of the television and meandered over to the door. Waiting outside was a strange looking man. Theron’s eyes took in the details of the man’s clothing, the robe which hung majestically from his shoulders was something out of a story book. “Mr Hammer?” The man spoke in a way which demanded attention. “Yes?” “I am here about the child in your care, Theron Rayne. You may have noticed that strange things happen around the boy. I am here to deliver him a letter of invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.” Even from where he was sitting, Theron could hear clearly what the man had just said. Witchcraft and wizardry? Was this man here to play some kind of joke on Dave? Certainly, it was true, strange things had been occurring around Theron of late. Items moving around the house when no one had touched them – that kind of thing. But magic? No, the very idea was nonsense. There was no such thing as magic. Yet, Dave turned to look at Theron with a strange look in his eye. Something Theron could not quite identify flashed across his face. “Oh, yeah? A school for wizards? Well here’s the boy. Although, you’re going to need to provide me with some kind of proof before I let you take him anywhere.” The man smiled, almost as if he had expected Dave to say something along those lines. “Of course, but first...” He walked forward, having spotted where Theron was sitting. “This belongs to you.” The man held out an envelope, the texture of parchment between Theron’s fingers made the boy look down in wonder. Turning it over, he found the letter sealed with wax and the crest of the so-called school pressed into it. If this was a prank, it was a rather elaborate one. With nothing else to do, Theron opened the letter.
  3. Rosaline McKinley

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Rosaline Mackenzie McKinley 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 Character Face: Annalise Basso Character Masterlist Entry: Basso, Annalise- Rosaline McKinley ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Rosaline Mackenzie McKinley was born on a beautifully cloudy summer day in Inverness, Scotland, to Sullivan (a healer) and Reese (a teacher) McKinley and became their third child on that day July the 31st. Rosie grew up in a very loving home with her two elder twin siblings, Noah and Kennedy and their parents until an accident on her seventh birthday which took their parents away from them. Her elder siblings, however, weren’t old enough to care for Rosie and so she was sent to a home for children until she could get either adopted or her siblings were old enough to care for her. Rosie doesn’t talk about the accident to anyone other than to Omri, her best friend their whole lives. She leans on him and he takes care of her as best he can, when she’s moved to a home for children. When Adalyn and Aaron Hart adopt Rosaline, they moved her away to a new place, a place where her new twin brothers Aaron and Avery Hart go to school, a place that she finds out is called Portree Scotland. And they didn’t want Rosie to tell anyone where she was going. Aaron and Avery as well as their parents, did their best for her and tried to show her that they loved her, but all Rosie wanted was Omri. The Hart family are muggles, and when Rosie started showing magical skills, they got scared and started taking her to doctors to see what had made their new daughter so different. Finally, now that she’s eleven, and she’s gotten her letter to Hogwarts, someone came to their house to tell the Hart’s that their daughter was magical, and that she was set to go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This both confused and scared many of them, however, it intrigued her adoptive older brother Avery, and he did what he could to take care of his new sister. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: No family, not really, but the Reid’s (Emily and Omri) used to be very close to her and her family years before. 100 words (minimum) on personality: Rosie is a very quiet girl, though before the accident she and Omri used to be loud and obnoxious with the best of them. Afterwards, the only person who could get her to come out of her shell even a little bit was Omri. After she was adopted, only Avery was able to get through to her, and Rosie became quite close to him, picking him over the whole family to focus her love on. Sure, she loved each of the Hart family members, but Avery was the one she clung to when she didn’t feel well or when she was sad. Rosie loves to read, to be out in nature, creatures, and honestly anything she can do that’s quiet and allows her to think of Omri. She misses her best friend more than anything else, and she just wants him back.
  4. Theron Rayne

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Theron Rayne 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 Character Face: Freddie Stroma Character Masterlist Entry: Stroma, Feddie - Theron Rayne ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Theron Rayne does not know his birth family. He was found at a London muggle orphanage with a note of his name. It was uncertain whether it was his actual name or a means for throwing of the authorities. Indeed, the Muggle authorities were unable to find any hint of his family. Without any further guidance, the orphanage decided to leave Theron’s name as it was on the note. Theron feels an underlying resentment towards his birth parents for leaving him and does not hold out hope that they will one day return for him. At the age of five, Theron was put into the foster care of Dave Hammer, a muggle. Theron knows that he is fortunate to have a stable home with Dave, rather than moving between various foster homes or remaining at the orphanage. Theron does not refer to Dave as his father and Dave does not refer to him as his son, yet they have a familial understanding between them. While Dave is not wealthy and certainly benefits from government payments for his care of Theron, Dave has always ensured that Theron has been well looked after. In return, Dave expects that Theron works hard and is well-behaved. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: None 100 words (minimum) on personality: Theron is a quiet boy due to his upbringing. He wanted to be seen as someone who would be well-behaved and not cause trouble if brought into someone’s home. Once placed in Dave’s care, these traits were exacerbated. Dave had no time for a child with a needy personality. Rather, Theron morphed himself into the studious type which further impressed Dave. While always friendly with the other children at his muggle school, he found it hard to connect with them, especially given his background. Despite this exterior, a part of Theron wishes he could be carefree and fun, secretly indulging in books about adventures.
  5. Grace Hunter

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Grace Hunter Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes, I have Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter?: Yes, I will CharacterFace: Julia Roberts Character Masterlist Entry: Roberts, Julia - Grace Hunter  -----------  200 words (minimum) on family history: Grace's grandparents raised a kind and caring woman, Eileen Teivera. Although she was a squib (in the Teivera family it was common that wizard DNA skipped a generation), her parents loved he dearly and invested lots of time in order to let Eileen participate in the wizarding world. It was therefore that Eileen met a wizard called Jacob Hunter at Diagon Alley, while shopping for her parent's Christmas gifts. After a small talk, a few dates and some sleepovers, Eileen moved in with Jacob. Rather sooner than later they got married and after a year they got a little baby witch, Grace Hunter. They were a happy family, not rich and not poor, not famous and not unknown. You could simply say they were just an ordinary wizarding family, average and not standing out. Grace Hunter was made an orphan at the age of 3. Grace was raised at a Muggle orphanage where she wasn't really noticed in the crowd, but than at the age of eleven she got her Hogwarts letter. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: none 100words (minimum) on personality: Grace Hunter is a quite shy girl and has some trusting and confidence troubles. On the other hand she has a really strong opinion and doesn't take no for an answer. Together with her strong analytical talent and internal drive for honesty, this leads to being a shy but also troublesome kid, not being liked by most. Grace is someone who would like to be very good in sports and to be able to defend herself with other than just words. However, Grace isn't that. A bit tiny and fragile doesn't make her very intimidating and she has a condition of a rubber duck. She does have a talent in analysing, understanding people and their behaviour and she does ok in school.

  8. Raven Collins

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

    Summer would be over in just a month’s time and Raven was determined to soak up every last moment of it that she could. Soon she’d be heading back to school with her older brothers and she’d get to see friends that she hadn’t seen for the entire summer. Her best friend always spent summers with his father and Raven was excited to see him again. “Finn, over here!” she shouted to her eldest brother as she caught the football he tossed to her. Running with it she reached the goal line. “TOUCHDOWN!” she shouted in triumph but that triumph was short-lived. Just after she scored she heard her mother calling for her. “I’ll be back in a few minutes,” she commented to her brothers and the friends they’d recruited to play. With a sigh and a roll of her eyes she ran towards the house. “Sit down, please,” her mother asked. Raven did as she was told but her first thought was that she had done something wrong. Had her mother found out about the prank she’d pulled the other day? Or was it something else? There were so many options that Raven couldn’t possibly pinpoint what she’d done. What her mother actually wanted to tell her was something else entirely. “Honey, your father and I have something we want to tell you. Your great-great grandmother was...well, a witch. It’s something that happens to our family every few generations or so. We aren’t sure how it came about but...you’re one, too.” Raven didn’t believe a word her parents were saying but when they handed her the letter it all made sense. Weird things, things that couldn’t be explained, always seemed to happen to her. Now everything was clear though. She was a witch.

  10. Theodore Parker

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

    The letter from Hogwarts was heavier than Theodore had anticipated, the weight of it seeming more than what an envelope should be. He knew that Oliver would be a little jealous to know that his letter had already arrived and it meant that Theodore would be leaving him soon. Clovelly was not fun compared to Hogwarts and his brother would have ages still before he’d get a letter of his own. Peeking over his shoulder to make sure nobody else was around, Theodore tucked the letter under his shirt and hurried down the hallway from the kitchen towards his bedroom. Opening it in private seemed nicer to Oliver; Theo had no interest in making things harder than they already were for his little brother. Peeling open the letter, he marveled at how official his name looked on the Hogwarts stationary. He slowly read over everything, taking it all in. His school supplies list was the most exciting piece of paper Theodore now possessed. There, in writing, was documentation of all the amazing new things he was going to get. All the exciting supplies he needed so that he could begin his very own adventure. Now was his chance to prepare for his fascinating journey, where he could battle his own foes and creatures, discover his own treasure, and make friends that were closer to his own age and not the grave.

  12. Ceasar Green

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

    Ceasar woke early, the sound of his mother dropping a plate in the kitchen startling him from a fitful sleep, he groaned, checking his watch for the time. '7:06 too early.' he thought to himself, rubbing his eyes and wandering into the kitchen. "Why are you up so bloody early?" He asked, sitting down at the kitchen table. His mother looked frazzled, her hair up in a messy bun, pyjamas shirt buttoned unevenly, and moving quickly around the kitchen to gather what she needed to cook breakfast. "Well, Happy Birthday to you, I'll let the bad language slide as a gift." Anna joked, ruffling her son's unkempt hair. "It's an important day, Missy said that you'll get your letter on your Eleventh birthday. And that's today!" She exclaimed, turning back to the stove. Caesar watched as his mother moved around their kitchen, a sense of sadness flooding over him. If I go to Hogwarts, I don't get mornings like this anymore. he mused, picking at the hem of his pyjama shirt. He was excited to learn magic, of course he was! Who wouldn't be? But the thought of leaving his family, his sister, behind for almost a whole year? It seemed like the worst thing in the world. Nyra walked into the room not long after, flicking Ceasar on the cheek as she walked past him. "Happy Birthday, nerd." She muttered, receiving a lightgearted scolding from their mother, not dissimilar from Ceasar's. "Happy Birthday to you too." He responded, rubbing his cheek despite the lack of any actual pain. He felt a swell of disappointment that his father was at work, and couldn't have breakfast with them, but that dissapeared when his aunt apparated into the room. The noise caused Anna to jump, a squeal escaping her. Ceasar laughed, alongside his sister and aunt, as Anna told her sister to 'Just use the front door next time!' The family sat around the table, chocolate chip pancakes stacked high on their plates, a birthday tradition dating back as long as Ceasar could remeber. His eyes traced the lines of his mother's face, and he watched as his sister accidentally got maple syrup on her shirt, only to have it cleaned instantly by Missy. A tapping at the window startled him out of his thoughts, and he looked up to see an owl outside the window. His aunt rushed to let the creature in, offering a few treats in return for the letter it was carrying. Ceasar felt anxiety and excitement crash over him in a tidal wave as Missy handed him the envelope. "Well, Ceasar, are you ready to read your letter?" He took a deep breath, staring at the carefully inked letters of his name, before breaking the seal.
  13. Alena Morozov

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

    Time was ticking away, as Alena sat and watched her father in the small kitchen of their apartment. He was creating something new; a medicine, he had told her, but it didn't look anything like medicine. Right now it looked perfectly like some kind of goo. She tilted her head, with her chocolate brown hair falling across her shoulders in wonderment, as he stirred the liquid in the tall black pot. She could see it's green bubbles pop into the air and she lifted an eyebrow. "Is that supposed to happen father?" she asked him, with her eyes blinking up at him. Adrian took a quick glance at his daughter and nodded his head. "Yes, right now we're in the foundation phase of the application process. I'll explain it to you after it's done. And before you ask when it's done, it should be finished in an hour from now." Alena let out a small sigh. She didn't want to wait an hour for it to be done, she wanted to see the final result. She tapped her finger on the surface of the table in front of her and just when she was about to look at the strange colored medicine again, she heard a small clicking. Turning to look over her shoulder, she saw a grey owl pecking lightly on the glass. It looked as if it was holding some kind of letter in it's beak. It was only then she realized what it actually was. A mix of excitement and disappointment etched quickly into brow as she opened up the window and let the bird in. Alena took the letter from it's beak and with a small hoot, the grey owl flew back out and into the air. For a moment, the young girl could only stare at the letter addressed to her. It was only after a bit of time did she open it. "I'm going to Hogwarts," she stated nonchalantly, with her brown eyes taking the words etched into the old parchment.

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Ceasar Green Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be ap proved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes. Character Face: Michael Clifford Character Masterlist Entry: Clifford, Michael - Ceasar Green Family history: Ceasar Green is a muggleborn Wizard, his parents, Anna (34) and Ben (38), are both normal people. They met while holidaying abroad, and later discovered they attended the same university. They had an instant connection, married and had Ceasar. He also has a younger sister, his twin Nyra (not magical). His parents get along well, both working respectable and decent paying jobs, they love each other and their children dearly, and wish only the best for their family. Ceasar's aunt, Missy (27), is a witch, she attended Hogwarts as a child. She was sorted into Slytherin, and had a knack for charms. She and his Ceasar's parents were overjoyed to learn that they had a magical child in the family. His aunt suspected from a young age, as did his parents, but they were ecstatic to have confirmation on his 11th birthday. His sister, though excited for her brother, was upset that they would be separated while he was at Hogwarts. She demanded they keep contact, and that he send at least one letter a week to her, which he agreed to do. His mother and father, though excited about his abilities, we're understandably nervous about sending him to school so far away. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: n/a Personality: Ceasar was often described by his muggle teachers a quiet, preferring the company of his sister to that of new friends, though they would comment that he was very boisterous with friends he did have. He is a friendly young boy, though not very outgoing. He is a whiz with technology, and loves to read. He values personal preservation over interpersonal skills. He is good at adapting to new situations and making good impressions on people, though those impressions are not always an honest portrayal of his personality. He has a joke for every situation, and is loyal to the friends he does have, and is loud and carefree when around people he trusts. He takes his studies seriously, Ceasar is ambitious, and driven for a successful future.

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Alena Morozov 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 Character Face: Alycia Debnam-Carey Character Masterlist Entry: Carey-Debnam Alycia - Alena Morozov ----------- 200 Words on family history: Elena Ivanov and Adrian Morozov met in Russia when they were each seven years of age. Elena came from a rich pureblood family, while Adrian came from a poor muggleborn family, but both ended up living around the corner from each other. They quickly became friends and as they grew older they fell deeply into love with one another. Both set's of parents didn't approve of the match, so with quick hearts, Elena and Adrian decided to leave Russia behind them and fly to London, England. While this was romantic at the time, both soon found that they needed to find jobs and build their lives together in a tiny apartment. After several years of working hard, with Adrian going to college to become a chemical engineer and Elena getting a job in the ministry, Alena was born. Elena ended up taking time off of work to care for her new daughter, while Adrian continued to work in his labratory. As Alena grew up, both parents began to educate her in sciences and mathematics, along with teaching her how to write. Her passion of learning began to grow and her parents soon decided to send her into a muggle school. Existing relationships to on board characters: None 100 words on personality: Alena is a strategist, who wants to learn as much as she can. She’s the observer, who watches and learns from everything and everyone. She’s also awkward in conversation, where she’ll spit out facts and figures to other people in order to get to know them. There are times where Alena will tend to come off as cold, but she isn't purposely doing this and this will tend to be her down fall in social interactions. She is not athletic, however, she'll read books about different sports and activities. One could call her a bookwork; as she carries her notebook.
  16. Jett Goettl

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

    Jett groaned, a loud and hoarse sound, as his alarm went off for the fifth time that morning. It's the summer between primary and secondary school, a time of in-betweens and maybes and probables, and each time he snoozed the alarm a flicker of satisfaction flared before he settled back into blissful dozing. It was a matter of principle, sleeping in as much as he could when he was not at school. But it was the fifth and final time that he was able to snooze his alarm, any longer and a proper breakfast was not going to be an option. So he rolled and twisted until a single, bony ankle stuck out from under the comforter. His foot flailed for a moment before finding the ground, and he used it to lever himself up into a seated position. Wavy brown hair fell in his eyes, probably in need of a wash, and he stared at his hair for a few moments more before beginning the slow, uneven stumble down the corridor to the kitchen. Dad was already there, frying up a full breakfast, and Jett swallowed in anticipation. He normally had cereal or toast, but days off were special. They were a full breakfast, and fish and chips from the store on the corner who always put too much salt on the chips. If Dad was feeling especially generous, they might go out for ice cream in the evening. 'Awake, finally?' Dad smirked as he turned to where Jett was slumped into the chair. He plated the food, setting one down in front of Jett and a smaller plate at his own place at the table. He had been working a lot recently, to make up for an air conditioning unit that wasn't installed correctly, and it had been too long since they sat down together. 'Yeah,' Jett murmured. 'I was reading.' He had been playing video games and Dad knew that. But he didn't say anything and just slid a letter across the table, addressed to Jett and on similar stationary to the letters from Mum. It was Important, Jett knew that, but he didn't know why. Jett exhaled, slow and low, before opening it.
  17. Nathan Park

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

    It seemed like any other day in Nathan’s eyes, the boy woke up and other than being squished in a hug early in the morning by his two siblings while yelling at the top of their lungs happy birthday the day was as normal as any other day yet that changed with a sound by his window. A tapping sound, an owl delivering the mail in his window was quite odd yet his mind wasn’t worried or curious by it, instead a bright smile grew on his face as he adored animals. Opening the window and letting it in as the boy pulled closer a small water bowl “You must be tired little pal.” He smiled while taking the letter “What do you have here…” He spoke to himself before his eyes widened in realization. Hogwarts. It was his mother’s school; he knew the name by heart as he had dreamt of that moment for as long as he could remember. The brightest smile took over his face as he turned the envelope to open it with shaky hands due to his excitement, reading every single word at least twice the boy smiled from ear to ear, his eyes almost disappearing in the process as he placed the letter back in the envelope to rush to his parents side. “Mom, mom it’s from Hogwarts!!” He yelled happily, earning a disapproving look from his father and a bright smile of his mother in return. “Do you think I will be in your house? I hope so!” His enthusiasm was clear and that only made his mom laugh as she nodded while patting his head softly.

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Nathan Park 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 Character Face: Jeno Lee Character Masterlist Entry: Lee Jeno – Nathan Park ----------- 200 Words on family history: An odd couple, it was the description the couple got as people found out of the dating pair, rumors didn’t take long to appear, claiming that the couple was in an arranged marriage after all the two of them came from good families and they were as different as the sun and the moon yet no one could be sure of it, simply by the way the woman stared at him. A look full of warmness, a tender smile that could perhaps be described by the word love. She was like the brightest star in the universe, as bright and warm as the sun, anyone in her presence had felt it. A true sunshine with a heart of gold. While he was the moon, easily seen as cold and his heart was as mysterious as it yet with a tender side only she got to see, to the sun that melted his heart with her tender ways. Though that took some time, after all they were opposites yet at some point the boy met her in the path after all the steps she had taken towards him during all that time, that was when the moon embraced the sun, when he finally admitted to his heart. It was as if a fairytale started in that moment, and soon the family grew with a boy that was the exact image of her mother from inside and out and two younger kids who were loved all the same. Existing relationships to on board characters: None. 100 words on personality: Like mother, like son that’s the easiest way to describe him. The boy is the image of his mother in looks and in personality. Always with a smile on his face, Nana is probably one of the nicest boys you will ever meet, a positive and playful boy who is always ready to make you feel warmness yet easily embarrassed by his over cheerful and sometimes too loud personality. A clumsy kid who often forgets what he was doing, that is Nathan. A goof with good intentions and a big, kind heart. Not the smartest but his strong will and passion makes up for it. A caring big brother to his two siblings, a good son to his parents and a friendly boy to strangers.
  19. Archer Crawley

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Archer Crawley 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 Character Face: Adam Brody Character Masterlist Entry: Brody, Adam- Archer Crawley 200 words (minimum) on family history: The Crawleys are a philanthropic family residing in York, and have been big supporters of St. Mungo’s since it was established. Generations of Crawley’s have worked as healers. The family has a long standing dedication to improving wizarding health through new charms, potions, and enchantments. The Crawley’s believe in peaceful Wizard and Muggle cooperation, and live happily amongst the muggles in the York countryside. Mason Crawley, the youngest of five brothers and the only one not to be sorted into Hufflepuff, exercised his curiosity and with the encouragement of his parents left to travel after completing his time at Hogwarts. During his time in Italy studying ancient wizard history and lore he met a spirited American Muggle named Veronica Mathers. They quickly established a bond and became travel companions, Mason being counseled by his family not to break the Statute Of Secrecy and expose himself as a wizard. Veronica proved herself fearless, and trustworthy, and after many months and gaining approval from the ministry and his family, Mason was able to tell her the truth. She welcomed his true identity with ferocious curiosity and peppered him with questions daily. The Crawley family welcomed Veronica and her American charisma. After their wedding, Mason and Veronica returned to his family’s estate in York where they welcomed their only child, Archer Mason Crawley. Existing familial relationships to on board characters:N/A 100 words (minimum) on personality: Archer Mason was given a very diverse and culturally inclusive childhood. With an adventurous wizard father and American Muggle mother he was exposed to many things other children his age only read about in books. From his father he learned about quidditch and magical creatures, his mother taught him to skateboard and that comic book characters were just as entertaining and anything in The Tales of Beetle the Bard. His up bringing is reflected greatly in his pragmatic personality. Standing almost a head taller than his peers and never without a quick witty comeback, Archer is often mistaken as being much older. Funny, kind hearted, and with the Crawley dedication to helping others Archer is easy going and well liked. He inherited his fathers thirst for adventure and his mother’s fiery spirit.

    Character Name: Jett Goettl 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 Character Face: Paul Wesley Character Masterlist Entry: Wesley, Paul - Jett Goettl ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Ursula Goettl and Ricardo Martinez met on a cruise of Scandinavia, and their love burnt bright and briefly. Ursula was a small time jazz singer trying to make ends meet, performing in the lounge of the ship every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday evening. Ricardo was an electrician, who won the tickets through a call in radio show that he listened to every morning as he drove to work. She saved his evenings through the power of her enchanting crooning and he saved her from a crab that escaped the kitchen. Even months after their shortlived relationship, Ricardo looked back fondly on the bold, beautiful girl who nearly fell into the Baltic Sea because she thought she saw mermaids. (She did.) They kept in contact, as best they could. Ricardo always thought it was odd that Ursula preferred handwritten letters but put it down to another one of her oddities (such as wearing capes almost every day, and refusing to clean with a broom) (disrespectful to Mr Nimbus, she said) Eventually she realised she was pregnant, and both decided that it was better that their son, named Jett, stay with Ursula and visit Ricardo every second Sunday. Until Ursula got an offer for a more serious, long term gig at a resort off the coast of the North Sea that Ricardo can never remember the name of. A short, but decisive conversation left Ricardo a single father and Jett with a mother who sent letters once a month. Ricardo considers this new era of Jett living with him to be both the most wonderful and most horrendous experience of his life. Wonderful, because Ricardo loves his son more than air and couldn't be prouder to see the small, quiet boy grow. Horrendous, as his career as an electrician took a dive soon after his son entered his life, with electronics never doing what he needs it to. He still can't figure out why. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: None 100 words (minimum) on personality: Jett's first years might have been with the pure presence that was Ursula Goettl, but time has shown that at heart he is far more like Ricardo. Jett is a quiet boy, more inclined to sit and observe than to take the lead on anything, he does his best to be polite but Jett could never be considered friendly upon first meeting. Adults tend not to mind him and children his age find him helpful for classwork (when the computers are working) and leave him to his own devices otherwise. But once his shell is cracked and he opens up, Jett vecomes sharp and sarcastic and a little more dramatic (one of the aspects he did inherit from his mother). He is fiercely loyal and loving to those he lets into his life and has declared on occasion that he will fight for his best friend's honour (he, however, has chickened out after each and ever declaration). Jett is an indoors person, preferring the sanctuary of his home to almost everything and does not deal well with change.
  22. Melody Fox

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

    Things in the Fox residence had been a little awkward lately. Melody’s father kept walking around like he had a secret and her mother kept trying to find out what it was but with no success. It wasn’t until that morning when Melody spotted an owl in the kitchen. Her mother was trying to get rid of it. “No! She’s not going! Go away you stupid bird!” that’s when Matthew Fox walked in and saw Jackie. Melody tried to ask what was going on but not of them ignored her. Then the bird flew away but not out of the house but right onto Melody’s shoulder. She took what was in the birds talons and frowned. “Why is a bird delivering a letter and to me?” She tore it open and her jaw dropped. “Okay.....who’s playing a joke?” Someone thought inviting her to wizard school was a funny joke? As she looked up at her parents those weren’t the faces of a joke. That’s when her parents sat her down and told her about the big secret. Her mother came from a family of witches and wizards. But her mother wasn’t one of them. Her father wasn’t either but someone Melly has gotten the magic gene. At least that’s what her father liked to call it. Melody Fox was a witch.
  23. Hawk Everest

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

    An owl was tapping on his window, an honest to God owl, in the middle of broad daylight. He shared a small room with his three other brothers, but the rest of the kids were downstairs in the kitchen. He had overslept, enjoying the beginning of his Saturday and for once he was alone in a room in this house. He tried to ignore the bird but it was insistent and Hawk found himself opening the window to shoo it away. The owl look this as an opportunity to fly into the room. "No! No you don't!" He shouted, though he was sure his mum wouldn't mind another pet too much. She was the one usually letting in birds and small animals into their already small house. Fortunately, the owl didn't seem interested in staying. It swooped easily out of the open window that he had just moved away from, but not until it had dropped an envelope at Hawk's feet. He picked it up, confused. It was addressed to him. Tearing it open, Hawk was astonished to read the words. "Mom!?" He called, running for the stairs.
  24. Charlie Talbot

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

    Charlie Talbot had known this day was coming for ages, from hearing how his parents had got theirs to seeing his sister receive her letter first hand. Now it was his turn, and Charlie could barely conceal his excitement. He had scarfed down his breakfast in all of about five minutes and now he sat by the living room window, novel in hand, ready in wait. Charlie had thought he'd be able to get through a few chapters of his book but he kept losing where he was out of excitement for what was to come. For two whole hours, he sat patiently, only readjusting how he sat when he got pins and needles in his left foot. "Hurry up," Charlie murmured, turning from the window back to his book. Another hour had passed, and Charlie decided he'd go for a quick loo break. Hurrying back down the stairs, Charlie ran into the living room to see his parents and little sister had joined him, and his mum was holding something out to him, Rectangular, ivory-white and with a blood-red seal, he knew exactly what she was holding out. "Congratulations my sweet sweet boy," beamed his mother as he took the letter out of her hand. "I've never been prouder of yer, Charlie," his dad added, kneeling to hug him.
  25. Michael Spearow

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

    Finally, it was time. It was the day. Michael was so excited for the day that he slept underneath the kitchen window so he could get his letter before anyone knew. He wanted to be the first to tell them and show him he wasnt a squib, well there was other signs he wasnt a squib, but that letter would be definite proof. He was going to rub into his little brothers and show to Meara that she wouldnt be the only one her parents were to pester and torment about being amazing at school. It would be an equal divided pressure and he really wanted that for Meara, as much as he teased her and had some good natured fun at her expense, he didnt want forced pressure and stress on her. He awoke before dawn with the sharp, rap of a beak gracing the windowpane. Jumping to an immediate alert, Michael approached the tawny colored barn owl as he opened it quietly so no one would hear. "Sssh, shut up you annoying squaking bird. Give me my letter already." He hissed grasping the thick envelope from its legs and shoving a few spare coins into its pouch. "There off you go." He said barely paying attention to it as he shut the window and opened the letter hastily. Proof, at long last!! He was a wizard!! Michael proceeded to do a quick victory dance, laughing amongst himself as he sat in the nearest chair sighing. "Well now what?" He said outloud as he looked at the kitchen around him. "I guess, a lot of hard work. Studying, Learning, and Mastering everything." He frowned realizing it was going to be a chore. Yet it was his chore and he had a few more weeks to find out the intricacies of going to Hogwarts.
  26. Cordelia Wright

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

    Brown eyes opened to blackness and Cordelia stretched, pushing her arms into the plush cocoon of blankets around her. She listened for a moment, but there was only silence. The house had become calm again and the silence left her uneasy, a feeling she hated. Her hands lifted to the mask over her eyes and she carefully removed it, squinting at the light glaring in through her bedroom windows. She took her time getting out of bed, in no rush to be anywhere. She grabbed a fluffy and feathered robe from the back of her vanity chair, it has originally been her mothers but after a spectacular tantrum, she had been awarded possession of the item. She slipped her arms into it and took a minute to comb her hair before venturing into the hall. It was silent too and she walked slowly pausing just briefly outside of her older sister's door wondering if she should invite Olivia on her quest for food. There was a noise from behind the door and Cordelia scrunched up her nose before hastening down the hall and down the stairs, deciding against the plan to include her sister. She didn't exactly know what Olivia was up to these days, but she wasn't curious either. She stopped in the hall, her fingers trailing over the mahogany sidebar to the place where the mail was sorted and stored. She was hoping that the newest edition of Witch Weekly had arrived, as she was desperate to read the second half of the article detailing the personal life of Taylor Swish, when her name written in green ink caught her attention. She flipped it over eagerly before rolling her eyes at the sight of the Hogwarts seal and tossing the letter back into the stack and continuing her search for the magazine. Of course, she was going to Hogwarts, she was a Wright after all. She let out a loud sigh as she realized her magazine hadn’t arrived and picked up the letter once again, curiosity growing that couldn’t be calmed with celebrity gossip. Brown eyes moved over the parchment, a grin pulling at the edge of her lips as she imagined herself roaming the halls with her siblings. This year was going to be fun.
  27. River Kim

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

    Born to a family of witches and wizards, it was a no-brainer that River was going to be going to Hogwarts. His father had told him plenty of stories of his days at the school, all of the trouble he may or may not have gotten into — all of the things he’d seen. Their house was full of magic, the family even had house elves to help with some of the cleaning that only a house full of nine people could accumulate. River was no stranger to it, but that didn’t make him any less excited for Hogwarts. In fact, it might’ve aided in his enthusiasm, spurring the boy to wish to go to school sooner only because he did have a good idea of what was in store. Of course, he wasn’t excited for the actual classes, but that didn’t matter. What mattered was he was going. They’d known he was going from the very first sign of accidental magic when he was younger. So he’d spent the summer running to the window every time he so much as heard a breeze hit the glass panes. Always listening, always paying attention. More than once he’d bumped into someone on his way there, been told to calm down, that the letter would come. How was he supposed to wait patiently when he knew what was coming? It was impossible, surely. So when the letter did come, the owl delivering it with more grace than he thought he’d ever seen an owl deliver a letter (though maybe his opinion was skewed), River thought he might burst from excitement. “It came!!” He yelled out, repeating the words over and over until his grandparents came into the room, grinning at his enthusiasm. “Guess who’s going to Hogwarts!”
  28. Charlie Talbot

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Charlie Talbot 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 Character Face: Jackson Hale Character Masterlist Entry: Hale, Jackson - Charlie Talbot ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Charlie is the middle child and only son of half-blood Maura Woldehaimanot and pure-blood James Talbot. The Talbots have lived in London for centuries, and even though their family name was an old and respectable one, it was never particularly rich. As a whole, Charlie's family was very middle of the road, and his upbringing was much the same. With his mother being a lecturer at a Muggle university and his father an independent potioneer, Charlie was used to both the surroundings and culture he grew up around as well as the magic flowing through his veins. Since he was old enough to go, the wizard attended the muggle primary school in their local area, with the insistence of their mother, just like his older sister had done before him. It was one of the finer Muggle Educational establishments, and his mother was a firm believer of being able to integrate with Muggle society. However, he was destined to finish his education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, just like his older sister and all the Talbots before them. With his sister being several years his senior, Charlie has always looked up to her and is excited to finally be joining her in school, even if their school experience would only overlap by the two years she had left before graduating. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: n/a 100 words (minimum) on personality: At home, he's used to being in the shadow of his more impressive older sister and not as coddled as his younger sister. But still, Charlie is a bubbly boy with the determination to make something of himself. Being the middle child, Charlie often feels like he flies under the radar which he tries to make up for by getting himself into trouble and mischief, even if it means receiving a scolding from his parents. As far as he is concerned, any attention is good attention. With his penchant for mischief and his upbringing in muggle London, Charlie can come up with a solid lie if he has to. As he's grown up, his fascination with the Muggle world has dulled and now he's approaching eleven - Charlie is excited at the prospect of being able to wield magic for himself.
