    1869- Alfie is born. He has a big sister, Betsy, who is two years old at the time of his birth.

    1870- A little brother, Bobby, is born. Before long, he and Alfie are best friends.

    1877- The muggle riots. Muggles find out about muggles and blame one of them for trying to kill queen. Alfie's neighbors find out that his father and the kids are all wizards and witches. They are shunned, but stay where they are. On June 8, a group of teens find Alfie and Bobby playing alone near a river, and try to drown them. Bobby escapes and gets their mother who rushes to save Alfie, but is overtaken by the group of boys as well. Alfie is drowned. His mother is shoved to the ground and fatally strikes her head on a rock. Afraid to be separated from his mother, Alfie resists death, and returns as a ghost only to find that she has died. His father and siblings have quite a shock when he shows up at their home after he's been buried.

    1878- Alfie's dad remarries the moment the year of mourning is over so that his children can have a mother. Betsy goes away to Hogwarts.

    1879- Mummy Lydia (Alfie's stepmother) has a baby boy, Billy.

    1881- After Bobby goes to Hogwarts, Alfie starts playing with Billy more. Billy starts attempting to walk through walls like Alfie. Afraid that he will be an unhealthy influence of her son, Alfie's stepmother insists that he be sent away. His father sends him to haunt the Museum of Magical Miscellany. He hates it, and misses his family terribly, but makes do by playing with child patrons, and sometimes following them home at night (usually to their parents' displeasure).

    1883- A half sister, Lottie, is born. Alfie sees her only on the rare occasion when his father is allowed to bring her along for visits to the museum.

    1885- Betsy graduates from Hogwarts, but can't visit as much as he hoped because she has to work.

    1886- Coming up on what would have been his sixth year at Hogwarts, Alfie decides to go to school for a year. He likes it, but misses his papa and Betsy too much to stay all the time, so he takes the knight bus back to The museum on weekends, and they visit him or (sometimes, in his sister's case) pick him up from there. He returns to Hogwarts Sunday evenings, and spends the week attending random classes, and trying to participate as best he can.

    1887- After a rather boring summer at the museum, he decides to go back to Hogwarts for a second year, but still come back to London on weekends.


    While Alfie is technically seventeen years old, he looks like he did at age seven, when he died...only, you know, more silvery grey, see through and floaty.
