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

Gerard Banges

Full Name: Gerard Lawrence Banges

Nickname(s): Gerry

Birthdate: March 26, 1868

Age: 20

Occupation: Magical Maintenance at Hogmseade Hospital & Employee at Dervish & Banges

Blood Status: Pureblooded, though, as he believes, purely coincidental.

Residence: Men’s only boarding house in Pennyworth

Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

Wand: holly, 9", springy, single unicorn hair. Darkly coloured and intricately carved

Family: Mr. Banges(father), Mrs. Banges(née Dervish, mother)
Standing slightly taller than average at 5’ 7”, Gerard is of an average build, with a bit more tone in his body than average, and tends to be a little bit dirty. He uses his right hand as his wand hand, and dresses fittingly for someone in the working class of Pennyworth, though he has only few clothing.
Gerard is ambitious, though it is little wonder that he was sorted into Ravenclaw, with his natural curiosity about the way the world around him works, which lead to him being something of an activist as he hopes to have equality around the United Kingdom. Gerard can hold grudges for a long time, but tends to make friendships that last longer. As he grows older, he begins to fear dying alone.
Gerard currently receives pay of 3g5s from his job at his father’s shop every week, and earns 14s every week from his job at the Hospital.
In 1868, the second son of Mr. Banges, Gerard Lawrence Banges is born early, and quickly found his way as an intelligent child, often heard just as much as he was seen.

1872 His first signs of accidental magic happened when he was 4 years old, and his pureblooded parents were proud.

1877 Around the time he started paying more attention to politics, Hogsmeade was established, and so was his father and uncle’s shop. He was immediately fascinated with the various magical objects.

1879 When he was 11 years old, he was sent to Hogwarts on scholarship, and sorted as Ravenclaw. He made few friends because of his social class. Though his father could pay for his older brother, at the time, he needed financial help for Gerard, who excelled in each subject and qualified for either a full or partial academic scholarship each year, including his fifth year, which was the year he never had at Hogwarts. Quitting the school afterwards was difficult, but he was able to work at his father’s shop.

1884 During the fire, Gerard sustained scarring to his left leg, and lost many of his belongings, still living with his family.

1883 At age 15, he started saving for boarding elsewhere, believing it logical if he was to move out on his own eventually.

1885 At 17 years old, Gerard felt that his sisters weren’t receiving the same amount of opportunities as he and his brother were. Feeling this was because of money, he took a second job at the Hogsmeade Hospital to help pay. However he discovered that it was due to their gender, and he was curious. Did all witches have these same problems? The same year, Gerard moved to a men’s only boarding house in Pennyworth for ease of access to both the Hospital and Dervish and Banges’, knowing that his older brother wasn’t likely to give up his birthright, Gerard’s beloved shop, when their father retired.

In 1887, Gerard took a basic Culinary Magic course with money he had saved up, hoping to be able to afford his own house if he became a chef, but no employers took him. Currently, he works hard to support his youngest sister’s OWLs and his other sister’s exploits, whatever they may be. He speaks out loud for the rights of halfbreeds and women, as well as those in the working class.

Gerard is very outspoken about the rights of those traditionally seen beneath him. He dropped out of Hogwarts after his fourth year, believing that it would be less beneficial, financially speaking, to continue onwards with his education.
Gerard's older brother plans to keep the shop from him when his father retires, leading to tension between the two. He pays for part of his youngest sister's Hogwarts education.
Gerard enjoys culinary magic, though as he has mostly been taught that it is women's only or for middle class men. He also has scarring on his left leg from the fire in '84.

Plot Preferences: Most of the time, I'm okay with starting threads if you ask. With open threads, I really like things to be just that--open. I don't like to do too much planning. For threads that we plan out, I like things to go mostly according to plan, with some wiggle room. Big drama events(death, birth, marriage) I like to know about, because they could potentially have a lot of impact on my character. Because I am 14, and therefore a minor, I don't do threads with sexual themes, though violence is typically okay as long as you run it by me. Strong language is fine, as long as there's no real life slurs, or those are censored in some way.
