    Appearance: Elmer was lucky to be born in a family with good genes. He is a good-looking young man, much like his older brothers, though his features are a  bit softer. His hair forms thick and big curls and has a medium brown colour. He stands at five feet ten inches and is not particularly muscular, though he tries to keep himself from getting fat. He has his father's dark eyes and uses his right hand. As for his clothing, Elmer favours dark colours.
    May 1863 — Elmer is born the fourth to John and Helena Macmillan.

    1864 — Howard suddenly dies, which makes Helena more protective over her sons, and particularly Elmer.

    1866 — His younger and last brother, Lawrence, is born.

    1867 — Elmer shows his first sign of magic by suddenly apparating on the roof while Charles was chasing him around in order to torment him. Elmer is happy - his mother less so, as he could have easily fallen to his death.

    1868 — Lawrence's weak lungs kill him.

    September 1869 — His favourite brother Edward goes to Hogwarts. Elmer is unhappy, because with him gone he has to be all alone with Charles, who is terrible most of the time.

    September 1871 — Charles goes to Hogwarts and Elmer is very happy about it - now he has all the house to himself without worrying about his terrible brother.

    September 1874 — Elmer finally goes to Hogwarts, where he is sorted into Ravenclaw. He's quiet and bookish, but also nice and friendly, so he has no trouble getting on with his peers.

    1878 — Elmer is named the Ravenclaw prefect in his Fifth year. He quickly proves to be suitable for this position, as he is fair and doesn't hesitate to take points even from his friends.

    1880 — Elmer is picked as the Head Boy. He is proud of himself and he tries to be just and noble and an excellent example to the school.

    July 1881 — Elmer graduates with excellent grades. He starts working at the Ministry, as an intern for the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. Personally, he'd much rather go for a more scholarly occupation, but he knows that as a third son he can't.

    September 1883 — Charles is the first of the Macmillan brothers to get married, to a Miss Noelle Selwyn.

    1885: Elmer and his best friend, His Majesty Merlin Huxley, purchase a bookstore, Tomes & Scrolls. Elmer quits his job at the Ministry to focus on this passion of his.

    1887: Elmer continues to run his shop.
    Personality: Well-read, intelligent and curious. Not at all street smart and only slightly practical. Dramatic. Vain. He cares a lot about appearances. Melancholic and morose. A bit of an intellectual snob.
