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

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.

Cane Backus

Full Name: Cane Vitaly Backus

Age: 14

Occupation: Student

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Hogsmeade

Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

Wand: Pine, 12", kelpie hair, pliant

With dark hair and hazel eyes, Cane considers himself to be pretty average in appearance. He stands tall with a lanky build at five feet, five inches and is still growing. He tends to keep his hair short, if only due to having his mother constantly tending to it before it gets too long. When it comes to clothing, he doesn't put much thought into it beyond ensuring that he looks clean and presentable. He also makes sure things match, at the very least. He prefers dark colors except for when he is helping out in the bakery which is when he will put on light colored clothes so that the flour stains aren't too obvious.

Intelligent. Daydreamer. Resourceful. Oblivious. Unfiltered. Blunt. Ambitious. Reserved. Generally Friendly. Kind. Indifferent to a lot of things.
Has a horrid habit of losing track of time, especially when in the midst of reading or daydreaming.
1873: Cane is born and proves to be the last born.

1876: Rye goes off to Hogwarts. Being quite young still he barely notices the absence.

1877: The family move to Hogsmeade and open a new bakery there. They live atop of it which Cane always found quite grand since it meant that there was always some sort of snack on hand.

1878: Maggie goes off to Hogwarts.

1880: Herb shows his first signs of magic.

1881: Rye opts to drop out of school after getting his OWLs. Maddie goes off to Hogwarts.

1883: Cane quietly observes the amortentia tea happenings though he doesn't really understand what is going on. It is rather entertaining, really. There is also the Quidditch World Cup that Cane manages to go see and develops a bit of an interest in Quidditch.

1884: The plague and fire happen but Cane isn't really affected by other so he doesn't think much on them. A more exciting thing for him is the troll attack in Podmore which takes the life of one of his friends. Sad.

1885: Cane goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw.

1886: Cane takes a calculated risk and tries out for the Quidditch team and man, he might be great at math but he is terrible at sports. He fails rather spectacularly and in his usual indifferent nature, accepts the fact that he is better off as a spectator rather than a player.

1887: Being a teenager and a small bit self-involved, Cane doesn't even notice the stir among his sisters caused by a letter.

1888: Maggie elopes which Cane reacts to similarly to [url=http://i.imgur.com/zCT0rUF.gif]this[/url] but more indifferently. Fog rolls in which is inconvenient. His worried mother asks him if he minds going off and staying with Maggie for a while to be both out of the fog and to help with his sisters bakery. He was busy reading at the time so he made a non-committal grunt which was taken as agreement. So, now he is spending his summer in the Byrne home, having been shipped off there the morning of the 14th.
