    History

    special thanks to Lady for the coding! <3
    Garrett Eugene Wallingford

    “I am the one thing in life I can control.”

    - ※ -

    Early Life

    1852 | Garrett Eugene is born as the eldest son of Muggleborn Fitzwilliam Wallingford, and his Muggle wife, Cornelia.

    1855 | Garrett's younger sister, Isabella, is born.

    1856 | Garrett displays his first act of magic by turning his one-year-old sister into a tabby cat. As a result, a slight wedge is formed between him and his mother, who -- while accepting of magic, in general -- was rather wary of it.

    1857 | Garrett's younger brother, Nathaniel, is born. He also begins his formal (a.k.a pre-Hogwarts) education with his tutor, a Mr. Fitzpatrick.

    1859 | Around summertime, Garrett notices that his mother was depressed. He does everything he can to ensure her comfort and her happiness, though unbeknownst to him, nothing could alleviate her heartache over the loss of what would have been her fifth child.

    1860 | His mother's depression worsens when Nathaniel, who had been born frail and sickly from the start, passed away peacefully in his sleep one night.

    1862 | Garrett gains a final sibling in the form of a sister named Katherine, though due to birth complications, Mrs. Cornelia Wallingford passes away, settling a new kind of melancholy over the household.

    Hogwarts Years

    1863 | Despite his mother's death, life goes on for the Wallingford family, and Garrett leaves for Hogwarts the following the September where he was promptly sorted into Hufflepuff.

    1863 - 1864; First year | Having been raised in an exclusively Muggle environment, Garrett's first taste of real magic had been a thrilling experience, and he had embraced all of its oddities and quirks as if he'd been around it his entire life. He found that he excelled in Charms and Transfiguration.

    1864 - 1865; Second year | Garrett decides to broaden his social range by joining four clubs: Dueling, Flying, Leisure Sports, and Book clubs.

    1865 - 1866; Third year | Garrett adds Ancient Studies and Muggle Studies to his class load for OWLs. He's deeply intrigued by how the different aspects of Muggle life are seen and taught by magic folk.

    Summer of 1866 | The family is thrown into tumult when it was discovered that Isabella, much to her intense disappointment, had no inherited her father and brother's magical capabilities. A burn that was only further fueled when Katherine started showing signs of magic, as well. And not wanting to be around a constant reminder of something she didn't have, Isabella goes to live with her recently widowed paternal grandmother in Southampton.

    1866 - 1867 | ~I'll figure out what happens this year later.~

    1867 - 1868; Fifth year | As well as receiving satisfactory OWL marks at the end of the year, Garrett also becomes the proud owner of a shiny Prefect's badge for Hufflepuff.

    1868 - 1869; Sixth year | Garrett continues NEWTs with Charms, Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Muggle Studies, and Ancient Studies.

    1869 - 1870; Seventh year | Despite having not been appointed Head Boy (much to his disappointment), Garrett decides that he wants to uphold a magical occupation and become a bigger part of the magical community, but still somehow retain the Muggle side of him. He began looking into professions dealing with Muggle/Magical affairs.

    After Hogwarts

    1870 - 1872; Traveling years | Despite having graduated with satisfactory NEWTs and had a plan for what he wanted to do with his life, Garrett didn't immediately join the workforce after Hogwarts, and -- like most spoiled, rich boys -- took an extensive tour of Europe. He enjoys observing how various cultures approach magic, and their differing views on Muggles.

    1873 | Garrett returns to Britain in time to see his youngest sister depart for Hogwarts, where she was -- much to his pride -- also sorted into Hufflepuff. He joins the Ministry as a Muggle Liaison Employee not long after.

    1874 | Early in the year, Isabella shocks everyone by announcing her engagement to the son of her father's business partner. She is married in the summer, with her first child on the way not long after.

    1877 | Hogsmeade is built and established, though Garrett sees no reason to move just yet.

    1879 | Garrett's father dies, rather unexpectedly, of a heart attack. This throws the entire family into mourning, and Garrett, as the eldest (and only surviving) son, inherits everything -- including guardianship of his 17-year-old sister. He purchases a house in Wellingtonshire as a result.

    1880 - 1883 | Katherine makes her debut into society, though makes no solid matches. Garrett supposed this was, in part, his fault, for allowing her to travel as much as he did when she should've been trying to find a husband.

    1884 | While he had been acquainted with Miss Herondale for as long as he could remember -- she was his sister's good friend, and she'd always been pleasant for conversation -- it wasn't until he had started to actively look for a wife that he noticed her fully. It was at the behest of his good friend Ben Sterling and the persistence of his sister, that Garrett decided to pursue this.

    1885 | After a few "chance" meetings and realizing that his feelings for Miss Herondale strayed beyond the bounds of friendship, Garrett finally gets up the courage to ask her father (and by extent, her brothers) for permission, and the two began courting in August.

    1886 | In February, Garrett asks Aurelia to marry him, and the two are wed in June. They spend a few weeks in Paris for their honeymoon, and it was possibly the best two weeks of his life.

    1887 | January saw Garrett have to bury his baby sister. Grief-stricken, he and Aurelia flee to their countryside home in the north, where the memories of their beloved sister weren't so prevalent, and Garrett practically throws himself into his work - something his wife is secretly less than pleased about.

    Present Day

    The Wallingfords are currently in mourning as of January 1887, and aren't handling their loss very well. Particularly Garrett, who finds it much easier to concentrate on work than the gnawing guilt he feels whenever he thinks of his late sister - or just the family, in general.
