    Clayton Ross
    #1
    Full Name: Clayton Adam Ross
    Nicknames: Clay
    Birthdate: March, 12, 1868
    Current Age: 17 Years
    Occupation: Student
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: Ash, 11", dragon heart string
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Lower
    Family: [Optional]
    Appearance: Clayton had unkempt long, blonde hair and blue eyes. He stands at 5'7" and weighs 130 pounds. He is slender due to his limited meals growing up although he has slowly been gaining some healthy weight since starting school. Clayton is right handed, therefore his wand hand is his right one. Clayton's clothing is very threadbare, and of old fashions. They are usually worn, faded and some have small tears in them due to their age.

    History: Clayton was born to a poor couple in 1867. They managed to get by through most of Claytons young life. His parents grew vegetables in a small garden and managed to scrape a living doing that. Clayton's father came into some money that raised their status to almost middle class. When Clayton was ten years old, Muggles had discovered magic in their midst. Clayton's father was a Muggle that did not know his wife was a witch. Claytons father joined the mob against the magical world, turning his back on his family.When people started moving into Hogsmeade, Clayton and his mother joined them. The Obliviators left Claytons father with no memory of their existence.

    In the summer of Clayton's 11th year, a letter from Hogwarts arrived. His mother had managed to gather enough money to get him through his first three years. She had been saving for this day since he was born. Clayton did well in his classes, at least well enough to receive a scholarship that got him through his fourth year. During that year, his mother had scrimped enough to send him off for his fifth year. His previous years were basically uneventful as he kept to himself and his studies. After all, he did not have the same luxury for fun as everyone else did which kept him out of a lot of the chaos that happened to occur during his years in the school.

    And this is where his story begins.
    Personality: As the character develops, this will be edited.
    Sample Roleplay Post:
    Aoibhe was wandering around the school, feeling a might bored considering she had done her studying already. There was only so much studying one could do before they got sick of it, even for someone as studious as Aoibhe. Finding herself in the Astronomy tower, Aoibhe decided to go for a bit of stargazing as she was sometimes apt to do. The Gryffindor quite liked stars, which was one of the main reasons she took Astronomy. What she wasn't quite expecting was to run into a familiar figure that had her cheeks turning crimson as she thought on just how often he had passed her mind. Aoibhe was well aware that she was experiencing a crush, but knowing did not equate knowing what to do with it. Aoibhe was of the opinion that it was best to just leave it alone and hope it went away on its own which was not the case so far.

    Noticing his mess and the teetering pule that seemed to threaten falling over at any moment, Aoibhe quirked a curious eyebrow. What was the boy up to now? "Now, what are you up to?" She asked, highly amused that both times she ran into him, he seemed to be up to something. She had never gotten his name, either though she supposed now was a fine time to correct that. On the other hand, maybe it would be best not to put a name to the face considering certain thoughts of him that tended to cross her mind. Somehow, they would be more ... well, more something, she wasn't sure what, if she knew his name.
