    Anthony Grimstone
    In Character
    [Image: voqvph.jpg]
    Full Name: Anthony Felix Grimstone
    Nicknames: Tony
    Birthdate: January 13th, 1865
    Current Age: Eighteen
    Occupation: Potion & Plant Poisoning Intern
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: 10", Pear, Ashwinder Ash, Unyielding
    Blood Status: Half
    Social Class: Middle
    Family: Simon Grimstone - Father
    Lucille Grimstone - Mother
    Elias Grimstone - Brother
    Ruth Grimstone Lockhart - Sister
      Magnus Lockhart - Brother-in-law
    Appearance: Recently topped out height-wise at 6'0", Tony is basically a freak of nature. He has a bit of a muscular build and doesn't have super great posture. (Preferring to look as non-threatening as possible.) He tends to allow for a small layer of stubble on his face, enjoying that he looks less like a baby with it. Sandy blond hair, gray eyes.
    History: 1865-1869: Anthony Felix Grimstone is born, the third child and second son to the increasingly impoverished Grimstone clan. While most of the family is magical, his (rather distant) father is a muggle; regardless, it is no surprise to anyone when Tony demonstrates magic. (It is, however, a surprise when he ends up on the roof.)
    1870: Elias goes to wizarding school and is sorted into Gryffindor. The strain of paying for his schooling makes Tony want to help out around the place more, and despite being only five he quickly becomes the sort of person who is not quite satisfied unless they are doing something useful.
    1874: Ruth goes to school and is sorted into Gryffindor as well. Tony feels a bit awkward being the only Grimstone kid hanging around the house during the school year.
    1876: Finally Tony goes to Hogwarts. He is sorted into Ravenclaw, and while it is not the house he wanted given that his older siblings were both Gryffindors, he likes it well enough anyways.
    1877: In May, Elias finishes school. When Tony enters his second year, he becomes fast friends with Evangeline Asperhand, whom he likes despite the fact that upper-class people tend towards making him feel uncomfortable.
    1878: Tony selects Ghoul Studies and Arithmancy as his electives.
    1879: Elias invents the Oakshaft '79, and the brooms popularity sends the Grimstones rocketing up into the middle-class. Tony likes to think that he adapts well, although people knowing who his family is tends to freak him out. He joins the house Quidditch team as a chaser.
    1881: Elias and Evangeline fall in love and make Tony feel awkward. In June of 1881 he sits his OWLs, opting to take Charms, Potions, DaDa, Transfiguration, Herbology, and Alchemy at the NEWT level.
    1882: In the summer between his sixth and seventh year, the Grimstone place in Bartonburg burns down. (Which really, really sucks, to be honest.) Tony is briefly worried that the lack of a workship will send them back into poverty - but Elias keeps working, and they get a new place when he's at school, and everything is pretty much okay.
    1883: Evangeline and Elias stop being engaged, and when she claims that she needs to stop being near the Grimstones 'for their own safety' Tony decides that maybe they are better off not being friends - although not, of course, for the reasons that she proposes. He sits his NEWTs and, when he graduates, gets a position as an intern in the Potions & Plant Poisoning branch of the hospital. Ruth marries Magnus Lockhart.
    1884: Tony becomes a real healer. Rue has baby Margaery.
    1885: Rue has baby Calvin.
    1887: Rue has a miscarriage in March. Tony you need major life events.
    Personality: Clever, workaholic, adaptable, unforgiving. Uncomfortable around those of the upper class, although he is good at hiding it and recognizes that they may have enough good qualities to outweigh his discomfort. Sarcastic maybe-communist.
