    History

    John Berkwood had not expected to gain a title. His father had been a younger son, and there were still three in line ahead of him. So, like many young gentleman in his position, the young Mr. Berkwood sought a military career. He served abroad for fourteen years before word reached him that his cousin the Earl had died of a fever, followed shortly after by both of his sons. The new Lord Berkwood dutifully returned home, took a wife--the young widow of one of his fellow officers--and settled into life as a peer.

    From his earliest days, Henry expected to follow in his father's footsteps--though, preferably without anyone's untimely death. By the time he arrived, his parents had already welcomed three other children, including Daniel who, at nine, was being groomed to one day succeed their father. Henry, for his part, has always been perfectly content with this arrangement. He doesn't particularly want the responsibility, and no one is likely to fuss at him to find a wife any time soon. At least, given all things, he doubts that his parents would want to chance it.

    To say that the news that their youngest child was a wizard came as a shock to Lord and Lady Berkwood would be not quite true. They knew there was something odd about the boy, and that strange things seemed to happen around him when he was upset, or sometimes when he very excited. It was the sort of thing that they did their best to hide away, and, in the end, that is what ultimately convinced them to allow Henry to attend Hogwarts. They didn't approve--honestly, they were horrified--but if he wasn't at Hogwarts, he would have been at Eton, and the very last thing they needed was for there to be an incident there.

    Despite the fact that he is as discriminated against at Hogwarts as he is at home--something that came as a bit of a surprise. Never before has he been looked down upon for who his parents are--Henry finds that he prefers being at school. He enjoys the academic atmosphere, and even if he isn't as well liked as he would prefer, for reasons that are not his fault, he at least feels that he can be mostly himself. At home, he is either ignored or at least never allowed to say anything of substance or truth.
