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.

Claudius Lestrange| Brother
Valeria Lestrange Greengrass | Sister
  Theseus Greengrass | Brother-in-law

  William Pendergast | Brother-in-law (also cousin)
Seneca Lestrange | Sister
Also noteworthy is Tiberius Lestrange, Cash's cousin, nemesis, and housemate, and Ellory Pendergast, Cash's favorite cousin.
Large and substantial extended family. If you're not close enough to have either the surname or a nee Lestrange mother, Cash doesn't want to hear about it.
APPEARANCE
Cassius has black hair and blue eyes. He is 5'5" and therefor quite frustratingly more than an inch shorter than most of his male relatives. Cash is slight in build, but muscular rather than angular. He is right-handed, has very messy hair, and tends to bounce on the balls of his feet when he's bored or excited. Has been visibly gaunter since May '87, with shadows under his eyes almost perpetually.
PERSONALITY
IMPULSIVE | ANXIOUS | QUICK-WITTED | PARANOID | LOYAL
OTHER
HISTORY
1866: Cassius was born the third and middle child to Lucius Lestrange and his wife, Alexandria nee Selwyn. He is a generally pleasant child, with the occasional fits of temper.
1870: Cornelia Lestrange is born. Half a year later, Cash displays his first bout of magic by accidentally levitating himself off the ground.
1873: Seneca is born.
1874: Cash mostly masters reading and writing by eight, and can then be found spending a lot of his time in the library, mostly reading mysteries. He has no more than a very slight curiosity in the Dark Arts, and that's only because the rest of the family is interested in them.
1875:When Cash is nine, his cousin Tiberius comes to live with them because his father - as Cassius so eloquently puts it to anyone who asks during his school years - went crazy and killed a bunch of people. Tiberius is everything Cassius is not; emotionless, academic, etc. Cash doesn't like him and tries to keep him away from Valeria, when he can be bothered. It also doesn't help that Tib is immediately better liked by Lucius than Cash is.
1876: Alexandria's father dies.
1877-1878: Notable also for being the year the Lestranges move to Hogsmeade.
Cassius receives his Hogwarts letter in late July, and his school supplies are purchased along with a black cat he names Aelius. He is pretty much in a constant state of excitement for the next months, when he goes to Hogwarts.
In what really ought not to be a surprise to anyone, Cash is sorted into Ravenclaw. Mildly disappointed to not be a Slytherin -- where his cousin Rosalind and sister Valeria have been sorted -- Cash changes his mind immediately upon seeing Ravenclaw tower.
Throughout the year, he is generally on the pampered/privileged side - and Eli Swan, lower-class halfblood, makes friends with him anyways.
Cash flourishes in defense against the dark arts, and is just above average in most of his other classes. He receives a broomstick for his twelth birthday, although it remains at home until his second year.
1878-1879: In his second year Cassius joins the Ravenclaw quidditch team as seeker, which fits his slight build and athletic temperament and swiftly becomes his favorite thing in the world. Lestrange-wise, we're all surprised to discover that Seneca is a metamorphmagus. Cash is also delighted because this is the year Ellory joins him at Hogwarts, although she's unfortunately sorted into Gryffindor instead of Ravenclaw.
1879-1880: In third year Cassius takes up arithmancy as his elective. He would have nabbed something else as well, but care of magical creatures sounds boring, divination sounds stupid, and he's fairly certain his father would have a stroke if he started taking Muggle Studies.
FIFTH YEAR: 1881-1882: At the start of Cash's fifth year girls are banned from the quidditch teams.
Valeria has always been a bit of a brat, in Cash's opinion, but sending her brother a letter telling him how awful he is is a bit petty, even for her. A stressed Cash lashes out at his best friend - and is left distraught when he and Eli aren't friends for weeks. After making peace with Valeria, he makes peace with Eli - to some extent. Things aren't quite the same.
It's not until Cash hears his friend talking in his sleep that Cash realizes same-sex attraction is a thing. It's not until Eli denies having these feelings and Cash is left feeling hurt that he realizes he's attracted to Eli.
An ill-advised kiss reveals that Eli feels the same way - and after a summer of mostly avoiding one another, Cash and Eli fall into a sort-of relationship.
SIXTH YEAR - 1882-1883: In September, Cash becomes friends with Angie Sinnet. And in December, Tiberius - who knows of Cash's feelings for Eli after using legilimency - obliviates Eli, kidnaps him, and dumps him in Singapore.
Cash is left utterly adrift without Eli. It's only Angie's company that keeps him from losing it completely - and the eventual discovery, through some snooping, that Eli isn't dead. A semi-legal mis-adventure using a portkey (thanks, Claude) has Cash and Angie rescuing Eli. After Eli is re-admitted to Hogwarts, Cash and Eli spend months miscommunicating.
Cash thinks Eli is straight now, Eli thinks Cash is kind of a crazy person, and there is of course Cash's overwhelming guilt that his cousin attacked Eli.
Finally, after Cash's cat dies, they fall back into a sort-of relationship - with the caveat that Eli is leaving when Cash gets married.
SEVENTH YEAR - 1883-1884: In February, Alexandria Lestrange accidentally impales himself. Cash is left with the sinking feeling that he was always a terrible son to her. They never got along, after all - and Cash always thought she was pretty stupid.
After a spectacular Hogwarts season with no losses, he manages to get hired on by Nathaniel Gallivan as the first-string seeker for the Chudley Cannons. This requires an Unbreakable Vow given by his father, the details of which stipulate that:
* He cannot publicly disgrace the family.
* He cannot move out of Lucius' house until he marries.
* Lucius decides what Cash's Real Adult job will be.
* He has to get lunch with his father once a week, unless Lucius is otherwise available.
* Seneca cannot come to his Quidditch games.
At the time, this seems a reasonable deal to make!
Over the summer, the Lestranges sequester themselves in Fort Lestrange to avoid the Laughing Plague. This contributes to Cash and Eli's slow falling out, which is probably also helped by Eli and Angie becoming Cursebreakers and being largely unavailable.
FALL 1884-1885: Cash and Eli have an awkward run-in. Following that, they have several more awkward run-ins, and when Cash thinks that Eli pawned the pocket watch Cash bought him when he turned 17, they stop being friends.
In 1885 they start being friends again, very tentatively, and Cash tells Eli about the vow. Eli thinks, in short, that he's an idiot - which, fair. In the spring, Cash is poisoned (by his father) and falls into a coma, which makes him progressively more paranoid when he wakes up.
This all isn't helped when Eli takes a messed-up potion that makes him - temporarily - straight. Their falling out is tremendous, and Cash is very lonely for a very long time. 1886: And then, of course, they meet again.
Cash finds Eli trying to break into Black's and - after some awkwardness - they reconnect. Yes, relationship-wise. Cash is actually happy again, for a while, and everything seems to be going - if in secret - well.
1887: On Cash's 21st birthday night, he slips away from Lestrange festivities to go see Eli. Unbeknownst to him, he's tailed by Tiberius on his way to see him -- and Tiberius tells Lucius. Lucius murders Eli and Cash is set adrift in not only grief but also guilt, which isn't helped by his stepmother trying to 'cure' him by tampering with his memories. He's increasingly depressed, especially as his mind becomes not entirely his own.
A lifeline is extended to him by an unlikely party: Tiberius. Tib gives Cash objects bound with memories of Eli, and strikes a deal -- if Cash marries a woman, Tib will sleep with her and help him out with Lucius. There is, obviously, a caveat: Tiberius gets the first son.
At the end of the year he finds an option... Nora Abercrombie.
(Also his half-brother is born. Low priority.) 1888: The Chudley Cannons lose the Quidditch final.
