First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Carson Bixby for Sloane Bixby. You can take the middle-aged man out of quidd—oh, apparently you can't.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Ernie Nuffer
PROFILE

Full Name: Ernest Silas Nuffer

Nickname(s): Goes exclusively by "Ernie". Sometimes teased by his peers as "Mr. Niffler", which usually causes him to snap at them.

Birthdate: October 03, 1871

Age: 16

Occupation: Crime & Politics Intern for the Daily Prophet

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: London, England

Hogwarts House: Slytherin

Wand: Holly, 10 inches, Dragon heartstring, Swishy

Family:
Frederick Nuffer, "Father" [1815-1884]
Hildegarde Nuffer (née ------), "Mother" [1824]
His biological grandparents, but he's not currently aware of this.

Robert Nuffer, "Brother" [1849]
Amelia ------, Mother [18XX-1871]
His biological parents, but he's not currently aware of this either.
APPEARANCE
Fairly tall for a boy of his age at a solid 5'8" tall. Has a generally slim frame and toned—but not bulky—muscles. Even bone structure, straight nose, strong jawline, and clean-shaven most of the time. Short, medium brown hair and green eyes. Dresses in his school robes 98.5% of his time at Hogwarts, only if because they look far more put-together than the clothes his parents pack him with. Dresses simply while outside of school. Wields his wand with his right hand.

PERSONALITY
IMPATIENT. SARCASTIC. CLEVER. BRAVE. AMBITIOUS. RESENTFUL. PETTY.

Notable elements of his/her personality:

Hardworking | Despite his pessimistic nature, Ernie adamantly believes that if he works hard (and perhaps with just a bit of luck), he can find success of his own one day. He doesn't believe that those in power will turn down someone truly useful (even it means he has to be a pawn for a little while) even if their life circumstances are less than idea.
OTHER
☛ The likelihood that he'll ever cast a patronus (whether due to a lack of skill or simply lack of education in that subject area) is slim.

☛ Ernie is gay and is acutely aware of this, but doesn't put much of a focus on romance in his life. Nevertheless, he's prone to crushes he can't quite seem to shake, and does enjoy looking even if he can't touch.
HISTORY
1871 | His mother, a known prostitute, gives birth to him. She passes from consumption shortly after recovering from childbirth, but not before giving the midwife, a personal friend of hers, instructions on how to find Ernie's biological father. When faced with the child, Ernie's father vehemently denies his involvement with the woman. However, Ernie's grandparents, noting the immediate resemblance between their own son and the child, agree to raise him as their own despite their own son's protests. No one is good society is positive about his parentage, but many suspect there were shady circumstances regarding his birth.

1874 | Ernie displays his first sign of magic. While his parents try to dress him in his ~nicer Sunday clothes, Ernie burns them while in tears.

1877 | Ernie's "brother" moves away and into a shared shack in Hogsmeade when the village is founded. It marks one of his earliest, poorest memories of his brother, as Robert made his animosity towards Ernie clearly known as he left.

1879 | Ernie learns that he is not the biological child of the Nuffers (or at least those Nuffers), which leads to much confusion and harbored resentment. His parents refuse to reveal who his biological parents were, and moreover, what came of them in the aftermath of his birth.

1883 | Ernie receives his acceptance letter to Hogwarts and goes off to the school in September. He is sorted into Slytherin—fitting for the boy who dreams of making a name for himself—and finds enjoyment in classes that involve less practical magic. He's a disastrous ~organized~ dueler, but does quickly learn a snappy jinx or two.

1884 | Ernie sees his "brother" for the first time in years, and during Christmas nonetheless. While Robert brings gifts for his parents, he pretends not to even notice the thirteen-year-old in the room. He leaves before much conversation is held, leaving Ernie confused and undeniably angry.

1885 | Ernie adds Ancient Studies, Arithmancy, and Ancient Runes to his class schedule. He enjoys all of his electives, though finds some topics within them more interesting than others.

1887 | OWL preparations begin. Stress ensues. On a much more positive note, Ernie makes the Slytherin quidditch team as a chaser! It's probably not a future career move, but it is fun.
YOU LIKELY KNOW...

YOU DON'T KNOW...
☛ Ernie is the biological son of his "brother" Robert (though they may realize the resemblance if they happen to know both of them!).

☛ He's sexually and romantically attracted to other menfolk.

    ERNIE IS OPEN FOR NEW PLOTS
❧ I value communication over anything else, as a lack of communication breeds (unwanted) tension! As such, if you wish for a certain outcome you can't reach without me or my character cooperating, please let me know! I can generally find ways for my characters to reach certain points while keeping true to their personalities.

❧ I prefer faster-paced threads, as some of my character's plot-lines move quickly enough to where the outcome may make no difference if it takes too long. I tend to respond quickly; if you feel I'm taking too long, don't hesitate to nudge me!

❧ I generally prefer organic development to pre-plotting, except, of course, in the case of plottable adoptables and other plots that have a needed outcome.

❧ My post length varies based on a number of factors, including but not limited to: length of post I'm given to work with, muse for the character, and plot-importance.

❧ Concerning mature threads, I'm perfectly alright with swearing and violence, though will write smut only if it's required to further character or plot development.

❧ I'm perfectly fine with basic god-modding actions (i.e. your character leading mine somewhere, touches, etc.), but prefer control in most other situations. If you have a question, just ask! I won't bite ;)

❧ Unless important for plot development, I generally prefer not to be in basic meet-and-greet threads. If conversation between characters turn idle, I'm prone to creating sinkholes. Seriously.
