First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

APPEARANCE
Blessed with the most appealing of genes, Justice has managed to completely avoid any semblance of adolescent awkwardness. He stands at five feet, six inches tall — tall enough, he believes, to be considered "above average" for his age while avoiding any bumped heads or sticking out like a sore thumb.

His build is neither notably scrawny nor muscular, but a healthy diet and regular exercise ensures his muscles are at least toned enough to be noticeable.

His hair, which used to be an unmanageable mop of dark curls atop his head, has more recently been styled to seem purposefully messy in all of its dark. His eyes are also brown. He walks with an arrogant sort of swagger, though always manages to find himself curled into the strangest positions when nose-deep in a book. He dresses with care and prefers dark shades over bright colors. He wields his wand with his right hand.

    ❧ His boggart is a pair of disembodied legs.

    ❧ He can be a bit of a flirt, but is mostly harmless.
HISTORY
Pre-Birth

A naive and seemingly desperate young debutante, Polymnia falls head-over-heels in love with the gentleman she believes is a true knight in shining armour. Tall, handsome, and incredibly intelligent, he oozes charisma and knows his importance. Against the wishes of her well-meaning friends — many of whom saw past his charming facade — she accepts his first proposal and two marry not but a year later.

Their marriage, while euphoric at first for the newlywed bride, turns dark when her husband refuses her basic rights she feels she should be afforded. Attending parties hosted by ladies her husband is "suspicious" about, a strict curfew, and even physical punishment at any perceived wrongdoing leaves Polymnia with an overwhelming sense of dread as their first anniversary nears. And soon after that? She's pregnant.

Early Years

On September 2nd, 1872, Polymnia manages to please her husband for the first time in a long while by presenting him with their first child, and more importantly, their first son. Complications arise in the weeks following childbirth, but Polymnia's body refuses to succumb to the stress her body's under.

Justice Rookwood is an easy child to manage from the start, and he' soon joined by a younger sister, Clementine Rookwood, less than a year after his birth in 1873. He earns favor (beyond the existence of a penis) in 1874 when he displays a rather early first sign of magic shortly after his second birthday. It's nothing too dramatic or even noteworthy in stories he'd hear later in life — he causes a magical music box to begin playing in a situation he perceived as awkward silence.

His youngest and final sister, Faye Rookwood, joins the family in 1877. Unfortunately, the summer after her birth brings massive muggle riots after they discover magic, prompting the London-residing Rookwoods to flee to the countryside. Surprise, surprise, the countryside is completely and utterly boring, though it does have perks: without fear of breaking the International Statute of Secrecy, Justice is able to learn how to ride a broomstick in 1879. His love of flying leads to a love of the adjacent quidditch.

Between 1880-1882, Justice continues his education, which includes everything from magical and muggle history; mathematics; reading; composition; and most notably, calligraphy, which would flourish into a full-blown passion by the time he's a teenager or so. Like any normal upper class boy, he's tutored in French, but also learns a bit of Urdu from one of his uncles, who had been doing business in India.

The "Accident"

In the summer of 1883, he and his siblings return home to an auror presence. The details of the day have been suppressed over the years, but he clearly remembers being told that a maid had reported an "accidental explosion" in the family's parlor that resulted in the death of both of his parents.

No other signs of struggle are discovered — at least until the coroner comes in. He declares that Justice's father was hit with a spell before his death, but no one is sure whether that spell came from an intentional attack or the out-of-control wand that caused the explosion. While the investigative team reports that the incident was accidental, the tabloids take advantage of his mother's "recent changes in moods" to make her out to be a murderer.

While based completely off speculation and lacking any sort of valid sources, the tabloids unknowingly reveal the truth about the incident — not that anyone, including the family, knows this. A stunning spell had been cast purposefully, but not with the intent to kill; when it did prove fatal, Polymnia acted rashly and, in an attempt to evade justice (which is ironic, given her son's name), ended her own life.

Thus, their lives as orphans begin.

Justice, along with his two younger sisters, are shipped to live with their Uncle Eldridge in Hogsmeade shortly thereafter. He seems pretty normal (save for a few odd quirks and obsessive habits) until the children discover the room full of deformed reptiles, amphibians, and rodents that their uncle keeps as "pets". Justice does little more than give a side-eyed glance to this, but privately warns his siblings — especially the ever curious Faye — to stay away from that room. (Of course, she totally doesn't listen because she's Faye.)

The months after their parents' deaths bring mixed feelings. Justice has been taught not to show emotion, but feels it's necessary to comfort his sisters. At the same time, though, he's pretty awful at being comforting, and only make things worse. This results in him bottling pretty much everything up, which culminates into a violent — and luckily private — outburst and a subsequent night of tears.

Hogwarts: Intro Years

The summer of 1884 brings his Hogwarts letter, and, soon after, shopping for school supplies. Justice and Clementine are both scheduled to attend in September due to their spacing of their birthdays.

(The Hogsmeade laughing plague also occupies the public conscious during this period, but none of the Rookwood children are affected by the tragedy. Their uncle begins suffering from the illness, but is able to be cured before the children find themselves mourning the man they've just grown accustomed to.)

September 1st, 1884 marks the beginning of he and Clementine's Hogwarts education. While Clementine is (appropriately) sorted into Hufflepuff, Justice finds himself sharing the company of other first year Ravenclaws later that evening. The next day, he turns twelve, and the week after he tries out for quidditch. (He fails, as predicted, but at least it allows him to grasp the skill level the house team is looking for.) He joins the Flying Club and Club Quidditch soon after. The first month of classes prove that there's no one class that Justice excels in over the others — and fortunately, neither is there one he just sucks at.

His second year begins in1885 on a much brighter note, as Justice secures a spot on the Ravenclaw quidditch team as a beater. This proves to be an especially good year for Ravenclaw — both in the house cup and quidditch cup — and Justice returns home for the summer with a wide smile on his face. Champions!

Hogwarts: OWL Years

1886 marks the beginning of his third year (and also the beginning of his downfall). For the first time, he finds himself insanely attracted to members of the opposite sex, even to the point where he misses the contents of entire class periods due to a particularly pretty-looking girl. It doesn't help that he has three extra classes (Ancient Studies, Ancient Runes, and Divination) to worry about.

Not having yet mustered the skills to relay his feelings in a verbal manner, he instead chooses to dazzle ladies with his poetic writing and stunning calligraphy abilities. To some extent, it works, but that may be less because of his master plan and more because he begins developing physically as the year goes on. His first growth spurt (which shoots him up to five feet, four inches tall, much to his delight!) along with a startling change in his voice's pitch that seemingly happens overnight.

He gets his first kiss during Christmas vacation after finding himself under (non-magical) mistletoe with a lady friend who he really considers more of a ladyfriend. Much to his dismay, she seems to lose interest in him once they actually go back to school, leaving his eyes to wander once more.

Fourth year begins in 1887, which is a well-needed break from the summer's drama. Except it's not really a break — not after the first night or two. Ugh. The election brings tension between students, which he gets sick of very quickly; it doesn't help that Topaz Urquart was a Ravenclaw in his year, meaning the gossip is especially concentrated in his demographic. He tends to side with the anti-werewolf crowd just because he's annoyed, though he really does feel sympathy for Miss Urquart's tragedy.
YOU LIKELY KNOW...
❧ His family is on the upper end of middle class.

❧ His mother and father died in an "accidental explosion", but many have speculation that it was actually a murder-suicide.

❧ He is a beater on the Ravenclaw quidditch team.
YOU MIGHT KNOW...
❧ Justice is a notorious (but generally harmless) flirt.

❧ His Uncle Elridge, who is also his guardian, is a bit wacky and has some super wacky hobbies. (Your character would only know this if he's told them, but he doesn't shy away from the subject.)
YOU DON'T KNOW...
❧ Her mother actually did murder his father. Even Justice doesn't know this for sure, but generally dissuades anyone from mentioning it.

    JUSTICE IS OPEN FOR NEW PLOTS
❧ 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.
