Did you know?

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

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
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...

Sirius Black
Not leaving: an act of trust and love, often deciphered by children.

Full Name: Sirius Nobel Black

Nickname(s): Protests, frequently, that he has outgrown ‘babyish’ nicknames.

Birthdate: August 13, 1877

Age: 10

Occupation: Incoming First Year

Blood Status: Pureblood

Residence: London, England

Hogwarts House: Gonna Be Slytherin

Wand: N/A

Family: Phineas Black | Father
A perpetually [i]distant[/i] figure, Sirius has never gotten to know his father very well, and may get a better grasp of him now that he is going to Hogwarts.

Ursula Black nee Flint | Mother
Sirius looks a great deal like Ursula and clearly has the potential to be very much like her; this is not necessarily a good thing. He loves her very much, but has never been ‘mothered’ by her in a way that is anything but dysfunctional.

Phineas Black II | Brother
The eldest of Sirius’ brothers, received the brunt of Sirius’ frustration over no longer being an only child. This resentment has carried over as they grow older, and the two fight frequently and with some viciousness.

Arcturus Black II | Brother
Sirius was fully prepared to resent Arcturus just as well, but somehow that didn’t happen. He is surprisingly gentle with his brother and they have the capacity to be great friends.

Belvina Black | Sister
Sirius swings wildly between loathing his sister for how much her mother likes her, and liking her because she is a rather likable baby. Depends on the day.

Elladora Black | Aunt
One of the few adult figures who has never abandoned Sirius, he is steadfast in his adoration of Elladora, even as her personality will likely contribute to some of his worst qualities.

Iola Hitchens nee Black | Estranged Aunt
Once the person he loved most in the world, Iola leaving to get married represents the first major abandonment of Sirius’ life. He would very much like to see her again, but would be hostile if such a thing occurs.

Other notable attachments are the Flint family.
It is easy to see who Sirius takes after; he has his mother’s face shape, high cheek bones, and gray eyes. He currently stands at 4’10” and is likely to be quite tall when he grows up. He smiles warmly and often, and, likely taking after his aunt, wears primarily dark colors. Differing him from Elladora and his father is is warm demeanor; his expressions bear a similarity to his aunt Iola.
Sirius is a child raised primarily by narcissistic, female personalities - he is also a child raised to believe that he is very inherently special, even moreso than some of the pureblood children he plays with due to the haughty self-assured projections of his mother. Sheltered to an extent but used to a certain amount of chaos, Sirius is selfish but unruffled, and furiously loyal to his family members and friends. Periodically left unaccompanied as a child, he is used to acting out to get attention, and has in the past doneso without hesitation. He is left unsurprised by taxidermy but perturbed by the poor; used to witnessing laudanum but left baffled by the suggestion that he is anything less than superior. He is also warm and social, arguably Iola’s influence but also arguably his own personality.

This all leaves him with the potential to end up vain, haughty and insecure like Ursula, seeking approval and love from [i]whomever.[/i] It also leaves him with the potential to end up like Elladora; cold, clinical, and self-possessed.

There is of course a third option: Sirius could end up entirely different.
Sirius is scared of the dark, and vibrantly enthusiastic about his dog.
Sirius is born in Hogsmeade in [b]1877[/b], having a fairly uneventful early childhood where neither of his parents are very interested in him. Instead, exempting his nanny, he is primarily raised by his aunts; he can often be found shadowing Iola or Elladora, whichever is more likely to put up with him at the time. He is also generally unaware of the tempestuous events between his parents; namely, Ursula’s affair. While aware of his mother’s son ([b]1881[/b]), Sirius is let unaffected when the child dies, too young and self-absorbed to grieve.

His aunt Iola is disowned in [b]1882[/b] for reasons that Sirius does not entirely understand at the time - later he learns that she ran off with a muggleborn. He is distraught and inconsolable for weeks, throwing tantrums seemingly at the drop of a hat - the entire event gives Sirius persistent abandonment issues.

When he turns five ([b]1882[/b]) his mother, through dubious and possibly traumatic tactics, manages to provoke Sirius’ first sign of magic in the Forbidden Forest. From then on their relationship becomes more of an actual bond, and Sirius is quite relentlessly loyal to her.

[b]1883[/b] brings the arrival of a brother, Phineas, whom Sirius dislikes. Ursula’s dependency on laudanum gives him a patience for such behavior, although he will likely not recognize it for what it was until later in life. [b]1884[/b] brings Arcturus to the family, and Sirius surprises himself by liking the child. It is also around this time that he begins flying and has a bit of a talent for it; encouraged by his mother and a Mr. Thom Pettigrew Sirius becomes an avid amateur Quidditch player. Left unaffected by the plague inasmuch as he does not contract it, Sirius does move to London with the rest of the family. [b]1886[/b] brings Belvina with it - jury’s still out on that one - and Sirius is rather excited to be going to Hogwarts in the fall.

Or he would be, if the beginning of [b]1888[/b] had not brought with it his mother’s departure. 12 Grimmauld Place has never seen a tantrum this large.
