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...

William Collins
PROFILE

Full Name: William Ambrose Collins

Nickname(s): Simply Collins; is not a fan of derivatives or presumed familiarities.

Birthdate: February 29, 1864 ( this was in fact a leap year )

Age: 24

Occupation: Curse Breaker

Blood Status: Pureblood

Residence: Portsmouth, Hampshire

Hogwarts House: Former Ravenclaw

Wand: Willow, 11.5", reasonably supple, unicorn hair

Family:
Geoffrey Collins ( deceased 1884 of the Laughing Plague, an irony not at all lost upon his eldest son and only child ) was born of the relatively affable Collins family, known best for their long held dedication to mediwizardry and developments in the care and treatment of various minor ailments often known to plague the lower class. Considered charitable but otherwise unambitious, the Collins maintained an easy neutrality that aided in the maintenance of their position in society rather well.

Geoffrey's marriage to Rebecca Hartwright therefore came as some surprise, as her family very well might have had higher prospects in mind had their eldest daughter not managed to secure herself a marriage with a notable landowner whose income nearly doubled what they had anticipated netting for all four daughters combined. It was perhaps for this reason the marriage went without too much question - the two were well matched in their dedication to aiding those in need of medical attention, and Rebecca did thrive serving as Geoffrey's potioneer.
APPEARANCE
William is five foot nine and wiry of build, bearing a pale complexion but for a milky way stripe of freckles along his collarbone with some splatter up his neck and down his chest. With the proper cravat arrangements these blemishes remain relatively contained and faded unless he has had a fair amount of sun on his skin.

Typically held in an attempt at the queue, William’s hair is springy and has a habit of bursting loose. He keeps pins in his hair to hold it from falling into his face when this happens, and when not on duty tends to keep it in a sloppy bun at the nape of his neck or in a simple tail.

Clothing wise, he keeps to practical garments that bear up well under strain on account of his work. Typically, he works with tailors who tend with sailors and laborours - both because the quality tends to be hardy, and the cost at an affordable measure.

His right hand is his dominant, though he wields his wand as commonly with the left as the right, depending on circumstance.


PERSONALITY
William has something of a locked jaw - though he feels passionately, he was taught at a very young age that fits and bursts of emotion were unseemly and inappropriate. He took his lessons seriously and learned to keep much of his true thoughts to his chest, though he is prone to the occasional fit of humor that can smack dangerously of revolutionary ideology.

He has learned that love and affection are subject to achievement - in other words, praise and admiration of his efforts is seen as a challenge to either maintain his present productivity or to strain higher; he has a terrible sense of self value which results in recklessness, a will to place the lives of others above his own, and a certainty that he is only as good as what he accomplishes.  

This, unfortunately, is the result of a deep seated sense of responsibility for his mother's death. He believes, through some fault of Geoffrey, that her life was granted in exchange for his and therefore it is his obligation and duty to live a life worthy of such a sacrifice. He bears his mistakes heavily, and is dangerously humble in his triumphs.
OTHER
He is absolutely terrified of heights but - if duty demanded it, or, heaven forbid, the terror of another appeared greater - he would doubtless face the challenge of his own fear to attend to matters.
