In addition, Elliot is related to the Huxleys and the Zanes.
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.
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.
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.
