Killian comes in at about 5'9". He has slate blue eyes, cool brown hair, and prefers to keep his facial hair well groomed. He dresses finely but not exuberantly so. Fitting for his time, he prefers to let the appearance of his wife speak to his wealth rather than his own clothing. He is right handed.
1855| Born to Thaddeus and Megara in Scotland.
1857| Orla is born though Killian is a bit too young to pay much mind.
1859| Shows first sign of magic by changing the color of his sisters clothes from blue to pink. He is old enough to know now that she is not a little brother but young enough that handles the news with a temper tantrum. As if his will could change her gender as easily as it did the color of her clothes.
1866| He received his invitation to Hogwarts and was eager to go off to school. While shopping for school supplies he tried out no less than 18 wands before one chose him. The bond was instantaneous and he is just as loyal to his wand as it is to him. When he arrives at Hogwarts he is surprised to be sorted into Hufflepuff.
1869|Killian picks up Arithmancy, Care of Magical Creatures, and Ghoul Studies
1871|He excels at most wandwork classes, particularly in unspoken spells, though Potions remains a struggle for him. He drops Care of Magical Creatures, Ghoul Studies, and Astronomy.
1874|He graduates with O's in four of his classes but is disappointed with E's in the remaining two. He immediately takes on an internship as a healer that summer and ends up staying with the hospital for 4 years. During that time he begins collecting investment properties, learning, through trial and error, which to keep to pad his pockets and which to sell again.
1878| Killian is approached by a company that distributes magical pharmaceuticals and offered a far more prosperous position within their ranks. He takes to it easily, using his knowledge of the hospital system and personal contacts to make important connections and contracts for his employer.
1880| Though still marginally young for marriage he was the first born, only son, and highly ranked in a sound and profitable business, making him highly eligible. Having been in contact with Mr. Pendergast even before the end of the school year, he was formally introduced to Emma shortly after her Coming Out Ball. He proposed and she accepted in September.
1881| They marry on February 2nd and it soon becomes clear that any delusions or illusions they held for each other would quickly dissipate. His wife’s dissatisfaction with domestic life and her interest in trying to influence him is not exactly at the top of his list of concerns. He is happy that they are able to conceive so early their marriage. He has little chance to regret that their first child is not a boy as Megara Faith MacMillan came several weeks early and has been rather sickly since.
1882|Megara’s fragile disposition is only worsened after barely surviving a light case of dragonpox.
1883| In February, Emma’s Lady’s maid comes to him with the fact that Emma had suffered the miscarriage of a pregnancy he had not even known about. While Emma was enraged at the breech in secrecy he never forgot that his wife could and would withhold things from him. He was never unkind but afterwards made it a point to be on good terms with the staff as clearly they were a valuable asset.
1884| His relationship with his wife is seemingly ideal on the outside but this is mostly due to the fact that they are both excellent pretenders. Behind closed doors they harbor a mutual resentment… both silent and explosive, depending on the day. They are such great pretenders that they even occasionally convince themselves and sometimes have whole weeks of amiable peace with each other.
Killian is an intelligent and wise business man, though he has a taste for more adventurous business tactics that have equal history of rewarding him handsomely and losing him money. He is generally good with people and enjoys attending social events, thankful that he and his wife easily keep up the pretense of a happy union for the sake of social appearances. Behind closed doors Emma often brings out the worst in him, reducing him to a sullen and petty man who finds extreme irritation in even the smallest things she does. In all fairness, she is pretty terrible.
