    Elliot Carmichael
    In Character
    [Image: 300wj6d.jpg]
    Full Name: Elliot Emmett Carmichael
    Nicknames: TBA
    Birthdate: February 14th 1859
    Current Age: 24 years old
    Occupation: Divination Professor @ Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: 10", Hazel, slightly swishy, phoenix feather
    Blood Status: Half
    Social Class: Upper
    • Father: Brandon Carmichael
      Mother: Elizabeth Moran
      Brother: George Carmichael
      Sister: Virginia Carmichael

      Uncle: James Carmichael
        Cousins: Gwenda Carmichael, Tristan Carmichael, Gawain Carmichael, Tegan Sterne
          First Cousins Once Removed: Enid & Pryce Sterne

      Dylan Carmichael - Uncle

      In addition, Elliot is related to the Huxleys and the Zanes.
    Appearance: Elliott is 5'7" tall, shorter than his cousins and his younger brother. He has rather curly black hair and pale blue eyes. Elliot tends towards half-smiles and casual clothing - though of course he remains well-dressed! He has a quiet tone of voice that occasionally veers towards sarcasm, and a Welsh accent.
    History: 1859: Elliot is born, the first child (and first son!) of Brandon Carmichael and Elizabeth nee Moran.
    1862: In November, Elliot shows that he is a wizard by changing the color of one of his shirts on accident.
    1863: Virginia, Elliot's first and only sister, is born in January. He immediately takes to his sister, and absolutely adores her throughout their childhood and into adulthood.
    1866: George Carmichael is born. Elliot is rather fond of him as well; he has never resented either of his siblings for usurping his place as only child, and takes well to the role of 'protective older brother.'
    1870: Elliot receives his Hogwarts letter. Once there, he is sorted into Slytherin, and takes well to making friends in all of the houses.
    1872: Elliot selects Divination and Ghoul Studies as his electives. In September, he discovers that he has a bit of a talent for the former - while he has never to this day had a proper vision, Elliot is eerily good at offhand predictions and takes well to the various methods of divining. He finds Ghoul Studies slightly less stimulating.
    1874: Ginny joins Elliot in Hogwarts, where she is sorted into Ravenclaw.
    1875: In May, Elliot sits his OWL exams. He continues with Divination, Astronomy, Charms, Herbology, and Transfiguration at the NEWT level.
    1877: Elliot finishes his Hogwarts schooling and reluctantly gets a job in the Improper Use of Magic office. He also becomes a member of the clubs Excalibur and Atlantis, though he admittedly enjoys Atlantis more. That September, George goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.
    1879: In the summer after her fifth year, Virginia is attacked and bitten by a werewolf. Elliot swears an Unbreakable Vow to never reveal circumstances - while under other circumstances he never would have done something so dangerous, he knows that he would never ruin his sister and is able to rationalize away the risk.
    1883: Elliot interviews for a job as Divination professor of Hogwarts and gets the position. While he will claim that a vision told him to do so if asked, in reality he was really just incredibly done with working at the Ministry.
    Personality: Elliot is a logical man who is quietly extroverted and generally friendly. (Though he is sarcastic if pressed.) He is most devoted to protecting his own self-interests, but is incredibly loyal to people he likes. He does not deal well with desk jobs - even those that are not very monotonous in the slightest - and has so far adapted well to being a professor.
