Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

James Baird

Full Name: James Baird

Nickname(s): Jamie

Birthdate: April 3, 1871

Age: 17

Occupation: Student

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Hogsmeade

Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff

Wand: 10", spruce, slightly springy, phoenix tail feather

Family: Jameston Baird; father
Aiko Baird; mother
Anna Baird; sister
James stands at an average height of five foot, seven inches and has an average build. He has dark hair and hazel eyes. His skin is slightly tan due to often being outdoors. His half-Japanese heritage is also clearly obvious in his features. James tries his best to dress nicely but his clothes are on the threadbare side of the spectrum. He is right handed.

Fairly intelligent; bold; likes to think of himself as ladie's man; punny; writes poetry that he thinks is poetic just because it rhymes; hard working - when it suits him to be; adventerous; impulsive; appreciative of the female form.
1871 - James is born to a Japanese mother and a Scottish father in Aberdeen, Scotland.

1876 - James shows his first signs of magic.

1877 - When the whole incident with muggles discovering magic results in Hogsmeade becoming populated, the Bairds also move there.

1880 - James breaks his arm by falling out of a tree. Since his family is poor, they can't afford to get him to a healer though they do manage to get a charitable mediwitch neighbor to bind it so it can at least heal the non-magical way. As a result of the entire thing and an arm that still tends to give him pain now and again, he grows a distaste of heights.

1882 - James goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. He makes himself a group of friends that he's quite happy with for the most part.

1883 - James gets notified that he managed to gain himself a partial scholarship which takes a load off of his parents minds.

1884 - James comes to 'appreciate' the opposite gender more than he had in previous years. Most of his time tends to be spent daydreaming about some girl or another and writing bad poetry about her. This is also the year that he happens to get his first kiss - because he'd gotten trapped with some girl under the mistletoe.

1885 - James and his friends seem to find themselves in detention a lot. It's a good time as any to study (when they get the detentions that don't involve menial labour and other less than savory punishments common to the era, that is) and he likes to think that his and his friends tendencies to end up in detention make girls think of him as a 'bad boy'.

1886 - Having taken notice of the fuss that some girls make over the Quidditch players, James decides he wants to be a quidditch player too. Never mind the fact that he hates flying and has a slightly useless left arm! D:< Plot twist: he doesn't make the team.

James's sister starts her education at Hogwarts which he finds slightly less notable. He suspects her of having a crush on one of his friends but can't figure out which one.

1887 - James's sister doesn't do quite well in her exams and takes this as a sign to go into service as a maid. James, on the other hand has managed to maintain his grades enough to keep his partial scholarship despite his and his friends shenanigans.

James tries out for the Quidditch team and this time, he gets the Keeper postion. Yes! Now he just has to pretend he absolutely hates playing Quidditch and the girls will be all over him.

He ends the year by orchestrating a repeat of the mistletoe prank in Hogsmeade with the help of a couple of other troublemakers that he recruited.

1888 - James has finally begun to realize that with his sixth year coming to an end soon, he should probably actually figure out what career he is going to go into. Especially since he has the privilege of having NEWTs, which is more education than most of his family ever got. It's a lot of pressure.
