    History

    Roberto Connell Devine

    “I was born to lose cause I'm a fool for love.”

    - ※ -

    Early Life

    For Roberto's pre-play history, please refer to his application.
    1884

    Roberto met a variety of people, the most memorable being Miss November Crouch despite having only met her once. He remembers her as being into poetry as well as being a little morbid but otherwise being quite charming.

    He didn't really do much in 1884 other than become sponsor for the Kenmare Kestrals.

    1885

    Another rather uneventful year, Roberto simply did his Quidditch sponsor things and gentleman of leisure'd about. His mother started becoming a little more insistent that he focus more on potential brides. Roberto continued to be insistent that he would marry for love and little else.
    1886

    Roberto continues to attend events and generally be charming all over the place. He made the acquaintance of Miss Ophelia Dippet when he helped her pick a name for her niffler and she helped him choose a gift for his mother. The kneazle has proven to be quite a handful for Roberto's mother which pleases him immensely since it lessens the time his mother has to fuss with him.

    While in attendance at a weekend event at Mister Thom Pettigrews estate, he encounters Miss Dippet once more when he rescues her from a koi pond. He flirts with her a bit.

    At the end of the year, he is among those that are unknowingly trapped in a Ministry party.

    1887

    Roberto attends the Aphrodite Ball and makes the acquaintance of Maeve Connolly whilst he was occupied with trying to figure out if Miss Dippet was actually avoiding him or if it was all in his head. Roberto managed to secure a dance with Miss Dippet but ended up magically stuck dancing with her for several rounds though he does not truly mind the occurrence. They learn a little more about each other and Roberto's romantic attraction to the young woman grows quite considerably.

    Roberto accepts an invitation from Miss Dippet to see a play. The play is rather boring but the event is made memorable when someone among their audience causes the actress to have a mishap which causes a domino effect among the rest of the troupe. Roberto enjoys a little conversation with Miss Dippet.

    Roberto attends the birthday party being thrown for Armando Dippet, the guardian of Miss Dippet. The older man has a heart attack and Roberto does what he can to both help the elderly gent as well as to comfort Miss Dippet.

    After more run-ins with Miss Dippet, Roberto is spurred into action at the coming out ball upon hearing the news that Mister Dippet plans to try and marry her off.
