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

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
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.

Edric Umbridge
PROFILE

Full Name: Edric Oswald Umbridge

Nickname(s): Eddie, but only if you've: (1) known him since childhood, (2) shared a living space with him, or (3) almost died with him. Anyone else is likely to be met with a nasty scowl.

Birthdate: September 08, 1851

Age: 37

Occupation: Head Auror

Blood Status: Pureblood

Residence: London, England

Hogwarts House: Slytherin Alumnus ('70)

Wand: Blackthorn, 10 inches, Kneazle whisker, Inflexible

Family:
February Umbridge (née Lynch), Wife [1866]

Oswald Umbridge, Father [1812]
Ella Umbridge (née -----), Mother [1828]
APPEARANCE
"Dashing" has always been a word Edric has used to describe himself, standing at a tall (but not abnormally tall) five feet, nine inches tall. Years of an active career and healthy diet have left him with a sculpted build, yet his modest clothing choices do little to put it on display.

He has medium-length brown hair, grey eyes, and a tidy beard that he personally thinks makes him look older and more suave. Being an auror he's learned to carry himself with a commanding presence, and always faces the door while inside an establishment. While trained to use his wand with both hands, he prefers his right for regular spell-casting.


PERSONALITY
DISTANT. PROTECTIVE. RELUCTANT. AMBITIOUS. DISTRUSTING. STUBBORN.
OTHER

SKILLS & MISC. INFO
    ❧ Edric is a strong dueler, though has always approached his job with a "stealth first" approach to avoid unnecessary conflict and injuries.

    ❧ His patronus takes the form of a crane, which traditionally symbolizes balance.

    ❧ His amortentia smells of lemon and rosemary—scents he strongly associates with Febby—along with burning firewood, freshly-baked breath, and leather from his father's home.

    ❧ His boggart takes the form of his father's tombstone, representing his fear of losing the last remaining member of his family and being left alone in the world.
HISTORY
1851 | Less than two years after their marriage, Oswald and Ella Umbridge welcome the child that would prove their first and only: Edric Oswald Umbridge. A difficult child prone to nonstop tantrums as an infant, Edric cycles through a number of nurses and nannies before his mother resigns to caring for him herself!

1853 | The months leading up to his second birthday bring scandal that Edric is fortunate not to remember in his adult life. After an argument between his parents leaves their relationship shattered, Edric's mother runs off with another gentleman he's always presumed she was already seeing. Edric's father, while shocked and upset, doesn't seem to accept it immediately, believing she'll come running back eventually. However, that never happens and Oswald Umbridge is left with his toddler-aged son.

1854 | Edric's father finally accepts that his wife his never returning and files for divorce on the grounds of abandonment. As Edric's mother isn't around to challenge the claim, it goes through without much difficulty. The sudden loss of his mother subsequently results in a number of tantrums and insecurities that would later manifest into abandonment issues. It doesn't help that Edric's father adamantly refuses to marry; he blames his own inattentiveness for his wife's decision to run away, and he has no desire to watch history repeat itself.

1857 | Edric begins his childhood education, but is decidedly unteachable in the eyes of some tutors. He is standoffish, uncooperative, and incredibly distrusting of the tutors that attempt to show him warmth and kindness; as such, he cycles through a number of teachers throughout his youth.

1858 | A first sign of magic appears at the age of eight. After his father introduces him at dinner to a woman Edric assumes is set to become his step-mother, he starts a riot... with silverware as the main participants. It turns out the woman was just the wife of a business partner, but whatever.

1863 | Edric begins Hogwarts a week shy of his twelfth birthday. While the hat teeters between Gryffindor and Slytherin, it ultimately chooses Slytherin as the best house for him. He takes to his classes fairly well, though has a difficult time socializing with the other children. While by no means a bully, he lacks adequate social skills and finds himself labeled an unfriendly loner by his more sociable classmates.

1865 | Edric begins his third year by adding Care of Magical Creatures, Ancient Runes, and Muggle Studies to his class schedule. None are particularly entertaining, and for a while he resents having to take electives at all. On the bright side, this is the year he branches outside his dorm-mates and makes friends with other students. Perhaps all he needed was a little confidence boost in the form of a lower-pitched voice and growth spurt!

1868 | His fifth year goes by smoothly, and in May he sits for his OWL examinations. He departs from school feeling confident in his efforts, and is by no means disappointed when he receives his grades in July. (Though, his father's lack of interest — under the guise that "no matter what, you'll one day inherit my business" — bothers him for the duration of the summer). With high OWL scores, he pursues six NEWT-level classes: Alchemy, Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, Potions, and Transfiguration.

1870 | Graduation comes, and instead of immediately applying for a seat in the auror training program, he chooses to learn the ropes of his father's business for a year. While a strong sense of business sense seems to run in the family, patience does not; his father, though claiming to want Edric involved in business matters, exerts as much control as he can over the tasks he assigns his son. Edric soon grows frustrated and informs his father he plans on pursuing a Ministry career for the time being.

1871 | Edric applies for and is granted access into the auror training program. Training goes smoothly, though Edric admittedly has difficulties getting along with certain members of the program at certain points. He learns to control his temper, though in doing so, only finds less healthy methods of coping with his anger.

1874 | Edric becomes a full auror at the age of twenty-three. The real situations they deal with, while similar to their practice scenarios, invoke much more adrenaline — even  to the point where the lack of action in his home life makes the world around him seem dull! He takes to the habit of accompanying his friends to brothels on the weekend, though that promptly comes to an end the moment a prostitute privately claims he's the father of her child. No more risky hobbies for him!

1877 | The muggles riot, prompting a large portion of the magical population to go into hiding. While the auror office does their best to assist with the situation, there's really only so much they can do. Edric's father, the owner of many muggle and magical factories, attempts to hire experts on magical-muggle tensions to ensure his "lineage" is never discovered. Luckily for them, no angry muggles come knocking on their door.

1881 | You'd think that the magical world going through turmoil four years prior would lead the population to be a tad more cautious, but they forgo using any sense of logical and reasoning by electing a child as their Minister for Magic. Even as a seemingly self-assured, thirty year old auror, Edric doesn't even consider himself mature enough for the position.

1884 | Minister Potter goes and gets himself murdered, and Balthazar Urquart takes his place. He would have spent more time contemplating the outcome, but suddenly everyone in Hogsmeade is dying and the village is burning (which he presumes to be a poor omen). Luckily for him, his only family member is his father, and he's not even sure his father's ever been to Hogsmeade.

1885 | Yup, definitely a poor omen. There's an explosion as the Ministry, and while Edric does find himself stuck within the government's wall, he doesn't suffer any injuries other than a few cuts and bruises.

1886 | His father brings up the topic of marriage, which both makes him nervous and secretly excited. If his (utterly aloof) father took the time to point out that he was still unmarried, what was society thinking at the time? On the brighter side, his father was actually thinking about him for once, which he concludes means more to him than society gossip.

1887 | What doesn't happen in 1887? Half-breed bans, reconciliation, werewolf scandals, elections — it's like the plot of a really shitty adventure novel, but it's real. Justin Ross becomes Minister for Magic, which he decides is a good thing.

1888 | While the beginning of the year is mostly uneventful, the summer brings numerous changes to his life: his introduction to Miss February Lynch, a stubborn and utterly insufferable young woman he can't stop thinking about; mysterious fog that invades the magical community; and a sudden promotion to Head Auror in the midst of the all the commotion. Could life get any more hectic?

Currently | The answer is yes, life can get more hectic. Months of hiding their whirlwind romance culminates in an amortentia-dosed elopement. Whether it proves a good or bad thing in the long-term has yet to be seen.

❧ I value communication over anything else, as a lack of communication breeds (unwanted) tension! As such, if you wish for a certain outcome you can't reach without me or my character cooperating, please let me know! I can generally find ways for my characters to reach certain points while keeping true to their personalities.

❧ I prefer faster-paced threads, as some of my character's plot-lines move quickly enough to where the outcome may make no difference if it takes too long. I tend to respond quickly; if you feel I'm taking too long, don't hesitate to nudge me!

❧ I generally prefer organic development to pre-plotting, except, of course, in the case of plottable adoptables and other plots that have a needed outcome.

❧ My post length varies based on a number of factors, including but not limited to: length of post I'm given to work with, muse for the character, and plot-importance.

❧ Concerning mature threads, I'm perfectly alright with swearing and violence, though will write smut only if it's required to further character or plot development.

❧ I'm perfectly fine with basic god-modding actions (i.e. your character leading mine somewhere, touches, etc.), but prefer control in most other situations. If you have a question, just ask! I won't bite ;)

❧ Unless important for plot development, I generally prefer not to be in basic meet-and-greet threads. If conversation between characters turn idle, I'm prone to creating sinkholes. Seriously.
