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

    "But he has to go!" "He isn't going and that's final!" "It’s an incredible school!" "So is Saint Albert's School for Science and Engineering!" "Saint Albert's would be a waste of his talents, I promise you that!" Serik flicked his eyes away from his father's heated phone call with his mum and back on the barn owl, the opened envelope sitting neatly beside it. The owl seemed to glare at him, annoyed by Murdoch's yelling and Aliya's equally loud responses over speakerphone. Just a few minutes prior the owl had burst through the living room window of Murdoch's flat in Edinburgh, where Serik had been intently tinkering with the solar-powered dinosaur robot kit he and his father had picked up from the National Museum of Scotland's gift shop. Over the past year, Serik and Murdoch had fallen into a strict routine during Serik's monthly visits to his father's. First, Murdoch would meet his son at the train station in Edinburgh, they'd bring Serik's belongings back to the flat, and then they would almost immediately go to the National Museum of Scotland for Science Saturdays to see whatever new exhibit was on display. After several hours at the museum, Serik would have his pick of whatever he wanted from the gift shop, they'd return home, and Serik would begin working on whatever new kit caught his fancy while Murdoch brewed him a nice cup of tea. They'd finish the night by ordering takeaway and watching a science fiction movie or documentary - tonight's agenda was a film about Stephen Hawking - and then it was lights out. In the morning, Serik and Murdoch would go to breakfast at The Abbeyhill Café, they'd say their goodbyes, and Murdoch would send Serik back on a train to Aberdeen, where Aliya would be intently waiting to pick her son up. These weekends, while action-packed, were always rather awkward for Serik. Murdoch was a loving father, but he tried way too hard to buddy up to his son. For example, earlier that day, Serik had jokingly pointed to a rubbish bin next to the Parasites and Disease exhibit, exclaiming, "Wow, Dad, look at this! So fascinating!" To which Murdoch replied in a bright, saccharine tone, "Yeah! That's amazing, innit?!" Serik got the sense that his father was largely humoring him during these weekends, and while maybe Serik should have been happy that Murdoch was at least trying to connect with him, his father's feigned enthusiasm made Serik cross. He was old enough to tell that he was being talked down to like a child, and Serik hated it. Serik's gaze drifted back over to his father on the phone. Murdoch's voice quieted to just above a whisper, "Aliya, I know you told me I wasn't supposed to talk about it, but I need to tell him." "Tell me what?" Serik asked loudly. "He's there?!" Aliya barked over speakerphone. "You didn't have the decency to go into another room to have this conversation with me?!" "You're on speaker," Murdoch replied. "He has a right to know." "You're absurd! You don't get to decide that!" "Yes," Murdoch sighed. "This time I do." He hung up the phone. Serik was shocked. Murdoch and Aliya bickered, sure, but Murdoch almost always deferred to his mum's judgement when it came to Serik. He had never seen his father hold his ground in a conversation before, let alone in a conversation with her. "Son…" Murdoch began. He stopped himself, ran his fingers through his hair, and began again. "I'm just going to come right out and say this. And you're a smart kid so go ahead and ask any questions you need to help you understand this… I'm a wizard. You're one too. And," he held up the letter, "you're going to Hogwarts."

    Hi! I made a slight mistake in my initial character role call post & was asked to repost. It's been over 24 hours and the repost is still hidden, plus it's now outside of the normal registration period, so I'm guessing my account might have just gotten missed? I wanted to make sure I'm good to go before I post in the "Hogwarts Letter" forum & can start role playing as an 11yr Old! Thank you so much!

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Serik Maksatov 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: Dimash Kudaibergen Character Masterlist Entry: Kudaibergen, Dimash - Serik Maksatov -----------  200 words (minimum) on family history: Serik Kevin Maksatov is the only child of half-blooded Murdoch MacFadden and muggle Aliya Maksatov. Aliya and Murdoch first met in a pub in Edinburgh, when Aliya was visiting Scotland as part of a training program for Kazakh petroleum engineers. They dated for the remainder of Aliya's year-long program, during which Murdoch never revealed that he was a wizard. Upon returning to Kazakhstan, Aliya realized that she was pregnant with Murdoch's child. When she returned to Scotland to tell Murdoch this, he was so overjoyed that he proposed to her on the spot.  Suddenly engaged, Murdoch realized that he needed to come clean to Aliya about his connection to the Wizarding World. He launched into an overexcited and incoherent explanation of magic, witches, and wizards, demonstrating his powers with a simple levitation charm. Aliya, ever the logician, initially laughed off his little "magic trick" but became upset when Murdoch insisted that he was telling the truth about his magical nature. Aliya demanded Murdoch show her the wires he must have used to actually levitate the objects in his flat, and when Murdoch told her he couldn't, Aliya threw his makeshift ring on the ground and stormed off, stating that she could never marry a man who treasures "scam artist tricks and lies" more than their relationship. She fled back to her parents home in Almaty, Kazakhstan, where she gave birth to Serik. Supportive yet concerned, Aliya's parents warned their daughter that Serik deserved to grow up knowing his father, however troubling Murdoch's "con artistry" may be.  With time, Aliya agreed. When Serik was two years old, Aliya landed a job in the upper management of a successful oil company in Aberdeen, returning to Scotland and allowing Serik to visit his father in Edinburgh once a month. Initially, these visits were supervised by Aliya herself, but over the years she has grown to trust Murdoch ever so slightly, allowing Serik to visit him alone for the past year "on a trial basis".  Murdoch has remained understanding throughout this whole period, and mostly blames himself for his estranged relationship with his son, since he should have carefully explained that he was a wizard earlier on in his relationship with Aliya. Although he loves his son deeply and would like to spend more time with him, he knows that he cannot get into a custody battle with Aliya in muggle courts without breaching the International Statute of Secrecy. Because of this, and because Aliya has explicitly forbade Murdoch from speaking about magic in front of Serik, Murdoch has only subtly hinted at his son's magical lineage over the years through Serik's birthday presents, from the stuffed owl plushie Serik received for his fourth birthday to the Wigtown Wanderers Quidditch jersey his father gave him when he was nine - to which Serik exasperatedly replied, "But this isn't even a real football jersey, Dad!"  Serik has an extremely close bond with his mother and admires her greatly for her ferocity, courage, intellect, and ambition. Aliya is rather protective of her son, which Serik finds extremely embarrassing, especially now that he is eleven, but overall he agrees with his mother's wariness of his father. Serik believes Murdoch, however generous and kind he may be, is still a bit odd.   Existing familial relationships to on board characters: None. 100 words (minimum) on personality: Serik is a sarcastic, witty, and intelligent boy who is absolutely infatuated with the idea of becoming a famous inventor. He loves muggle science and technology, and his idol is Steve Jobs. Serik definitely shares his mother's stubbornness and his father's impulsivity. He's a natural improvisor and he loves to debate others, even if it means offending someone. Bold and outspoken, Serik dislikes feeling controlled and is critical of tradition. This, combined with his poor relationship with his wizard father and defensiveness over his muggle mother, colors his eventual introduction to the Wizarding World immensely; Serik believes wizards are elitists and questions whether magic is truly as great as it's made out to be compared to the advancements of modern technology.

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

    “Hello there, my name is Amelia, Amelia Andrews, and I’ve been sent from the Ministry of Magic because this is very important that you and your family understand how special you are. Rosaline, you are a witch.” “I’m a what?” Rosie asked the woman who’d come to their door. “You’re a witch, you have magic inside of you from your parents, and you have a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.” The woman said to her and to her adoptive parents. “Wait, you’re telling me I’m a witch?” Rosie asked the woman softly, completely confused. “Like from Halloween?” she went on. Avery stood next to her, tall and strong, and Rosie moved closer to him as the woman spoke on. “Not exactly like the witches of Halloween, no, but you can perform magic and your magic can help people if you wish to, as others do.” the woman said, a soft smile on her face. “So what you’re telling me is that I’m not sick, but I can do magic?” Rosaline asked the woman. “That magic is what’s making me do all these weird things?” “Exactly. Now, here’s your letter to Hogwarts, your list of school supplies and your ticket to the Hogwarts Express for September the first. You can get to Diagon Alley for your supplies with me and another family member today if you’d like? And then on September first just go to Kings Cross Station’s Platform 9 and ¾’s and you’ll board the train to school. “Platform 9 and ¾’s?” Avery asked. “But there’s no such platform.” “There is, if you know where to look.” Amelia said. “You just have to run at the wall between platforms 9 and 10 and the magic will take you to the Platform.” Rosaline stood there in silent shock, full of emotion and confusion as Amelia explained what was in the envelope she was handing her. Rosie took it, and it felt heavy to her. As Amelia spoke to them, Rosie looked up at her adoptive parents and elder of the twin brothers, and saw their reactions to this. She frowned and turned towards Avery, who actually looked happier about all this than any of the others. Adalyn and Aaron looked at each other, silently and Aaron Jr shook his head. “Not me.” Avery smiled and spoke up. “I’ll go. And I’ll pay too, for anything she needs.” The others nodded and stepped back into the other room. Avery looked at the woman and shifted to stand closer to Rosie. “When do we leave?” he asked, reaching for Rosie’s coat on the coat rack besides the door as he waited. He actually seemed more excited about this than everyone. Almost as if he’d always known magic was real, and that this was his chance to actually see it working. This intrigued Rosie and she looked up at Avery, trying to be stronger than she felt. “We can leave now if you both would like?” she said. “Yes please.” Rosie said, putting her jacket on that Avery handed her and then took his hand. Maybe she was eleven years old, but this was scary to find out that you aren’t who you thought you were. And it made Rosie think about her parents again, and wondered why they didn’t tell her about magic before the accident. She was nervous and scared, but maybe this was what she really needed? Maybe this magic might help her to find Omri?

    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: Bryce Dallas Howard Character Masterlist Entry: Howard, Bryce Dallas - Grace Hunter  -----------  200 words (minimum) on family history: Grace's grandparents raised a kind and caring woman, Eileen Teivera. They lived in a little wizarding village in England and although Eileen 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 her 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. The Hunter family was a pureblood family and all generations worked for the ministry of magic. After a small talk, a few dates and some sleepovers, Eileen moved in with Jacob, both ignoring the protest of Jacob's family. 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. Jacob worked for the ministry of magic in the magical creature department and Eileen was a teacher at a Muggle school. Unfortunately, Grace Hunter was made an orphan at the age of 3. Her mother had died of an illness and her father had trouble coping with the loss of his wife. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
