    John Humphrey-Mavis
    In Character
    Full Name: John Humphrey-Mavis
    Nicknames: He goes primarily by Jack.
    Birthdate: July 23, 1868
    Current Age: 15 Years
    Occupation: Fifth Year
    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff
    Wand: 12", Poplar, Peacock Feather, supple
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Upper
    Albert Humphrey Mavis, 5th Earl of Esterwick - father
    Henrietta Humphrey Mavis, Countess of Esterwick - mother
    Frederick "Freddie" Humphrey-Mavis, Viscount Corcrest, born 1858 - brother
    Lady Margaret "Peggy" Humphrey-Mavis, born 1860 - sister
    Lady Elizabeth "Betsy" Humphrey-Mavis, born 1864 - sister
    Lady Anne "Annie" Humphrey-Mavis, born 1866 - sister
    Appearance: Jack currently stands at 5'7" and will likely stop growing around the same height as his brother Freddie as they have similiar, lanky builds. He has a bit of muscle on him due to his enjoyment of various sports. His hair is a light brown and he has brown eyes. His right hand is his wand hand. Jack typically dresses in clothing that is suited to both his age as well as his wealth. It is rare to see him wearing anything that is tattered or frayed.
    July 1868 - Jack is born to Henrietta and Alber Humphrey-Mavis, much to Henriettas delight as she had been wanting another boy as a "spare heir".

    1869 - Freddie goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin. Jack is obviously too young to care about that fact.

    1872 - Jack displays his first signs of magic by causing a small flood during bathtime.

    1868-1879 - Jack enjoys a pampered, tragedy free, happy and loving childhood along with the rest of his siblings. He is a charming young boy, much like his elder brother though he has never had the notion of competing with his brother despite Freddies competitive nature. The young boy makes friends with ease and finds a love for different types of sports though he does not show any inclination for hunting despite his fathers best efforts. In 1875, Betsy went off to Hogwarts and Jack finds he somewhat misses her presence but isn't too fussed about her absence. In 1877, Freddie graduated from Hogwarts.

    1879 - Jack heads off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. He quickly makes friends but grows especially close to a particular group of them.

    1881 - Jack selects the electives of Muggle Studies, Care of Magical Creatures and Arithmancy to take in his third year.

    1884 - Jack settles into his fifth year and prepares for his OWLs. Up to this point, Jack had always been a tad oblivious to his appeal to girls and continues to be so. As for himself, Jack has begun to notice the finer points of the opposite gender though he has never done anything remotely untoward and does not plan to.

    Slightly Arrogant. Warmhearted. Charming. Creative. Enthusiastic about most things. Loyal. Slightly Pompous. Slightly Bossy. Genuinely likes all his friends.
