    Roberto Devine
    In Character
    Full Name: Roberto Connell Devine
    Nicknames: Rob, Robbie
    Birthdate: June 20, 1855
    Current Age: 31 Years Old
    Occupation: Gentleman of Leisure
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: 11", Oak, Ashwinder Ash
    Blood Status:Pureblood
    Social Class: Upper
    Family: [Optional.]
    Appearance: Roberto stands at 6'0" with a very athletic build. He has green eyes and has dark hair. Roberto has a slightly crooked nose due to a rogue bludger breaking it in his sixth year. He also has facial hair that he likes to keep neatly trimmed. Roberto dresses in clothing suitable to his wealth and station in life. His wand hand is his right hand. Roberto is rarely seen without a smile on his face.
    1855 - Roberto is born to a wealthy upper-class couple from Ireland. As the first born, he is heir to a mass fortune that the family has created over generations via various means.

    1855 - 1864 - Roberto is thought to be a squib for the longest time. His magic finally makes an appearance when he is 9 and he causes his mothers tea to freeze while she had been lecturing him. To celebrate, Robertos parents allow him to take the swordplay lessons he had been asking for. He proves to be quite skilled at it and it becomes his favorite hobby.

    1866 - Roberto goes off to Hogwarts and is promptly sorted into Slytherin, as his parents had been before him. He quickly establishes a reputation for being well behaved and obedient. To staff, that is. With fellow students, Roberto tends to just go with the flow yet he manages to keep off staff radar when it comes to misbehavior of any kind.

    1869 - Roberto tries out for the Quidditch team and lands a position as Chaser.

    1870 - 1873 - Roberto is pleased to find that he has been made Slytherin Prefect as well as retaining his position on the Quidditch team as Chaser. He would remain in these positions until the end of his school career. He never entertained the thought of going into it professionally since he saw no need to and only saw Quidditch as a fun school hobby and a way to be involved in school activities. He manages to procure a decent amount of grades.

    Arithmancy - O Arithmancy - N/A
    N/A Alchemy - T
    Ancient Runes - D Ancient Runes - N/A
    Astronomy - E Astronomy - N/A
    Charms - O Charms - E

    1873 - 1884 - Considering his family wealth, Roberto had no need to find a career. Upon graduation, he had received a quarter of his inheritance with the rest to come upon the death of his father. This inheritance is still more than enough for the young man to throw about as he pleases, which he does. Roberto, being quite the Quidditch fan, attends every game played though he has never named any team as an outright favorite. He is, however, partial to the Holyhead Harpies, mostly because he thinks women playing Quidditch is sexy. In short, he's basically the male version of a "broom bunny". At the moment, he is facing pressure from his parents to find a suitable bride and have children. Roberto has decided to settle in Hogsmeade in order to do so though he isn't putting a lot of work into it.

    1884 - Roberto becomes the sponsor for the Kenmare Kestrals sometime this year.
    Personality: Athletic. Fun-loving. Respectable. Organized. Jolly. Cunning.
