    Sparrow Bloodworth
    Last Updated: April 27th, 2015

    In Character
    [Image: tXHPt2x.jpg]
    Full Name: Sparrow Conrad Bloodworth
    Nicknames: Row
    Birthdate: April 19 1867
    Current Age: 18 Years
    Occupation: Seventh Year; Ravenclaw Beater
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: Unbending, 10 1/2", ebony, Erkling Vocal Chord
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Lower
    Anne Bloodworth, Mother, 1849-1867
    Conrad Bloodworth, Father, 1843-1885
    Sparrows right hand is his wand hand. He dresses in wizarding robes rather than muggle clothing most of the time as a residue of his fathers belief that no self respecting wizard should be wearing muggle clothing which meant that Sparrow spent his childhood in wizarding robes. When he does wear muggle clothing, it is usually tattered and frayed but always clean. He stands a bit above average at a height of 5 ft. 9 in. and has a muscular build.

    1866: Anne, a middle class woman at the time, elopes with her lower class lover, Conrad Bloodworth. Obviously, this causes her to fall to the lower class.

    1867: Anne gives birth to a boy whom she names Sparrow because she thought it would be wonderfully unique. Conrad managed to convince her to make his name the childs middle name since Sparrow is firstborn. She died a day after Sparrows birth due to complications left over from the birthing process. Her death leaves Conrad a broken man and Sparrow spends his childhood neglected and mostly fending for himself but he manages to survive childhood. Sparrows maternal grandparents help out financially now and then but seem to have no real care to do much else for their grandson.

    1870: Sparrow shows his first signs of magic.

    1877: Sparrow gets his Hogwarts letter and goes off to Hogwarts where he is sorted into Ravenclaw. He utilizes the First Year funds scholarship and earns himself a partial scholarship. His mothers family apparantly decided to help fund the rest despite still not really getting to know the boy himself. Sparrow assumes they just don't want Hogwarts failures in their familial line.

    1880: Sparrow begins to discover that he is equally attracted to both males and females. He is unsure what to make of this and he obviously keeps it to himself. He also does not act on his desires for either gender as he believes it to be a waste of time, anyway. For his electives, he had chosen Ghoul Studies, Earth Magic and Care of Magical Creatures. He is playing with the idea of becoming an auror in training or other Ministry positions upon graduation and moving up in ranks enough to at least be at the higher end of the lower class, if not middle class entirely.

    1882: After years of devoting all of his time to studies, Sparrow decides that it would be beneficial for his future to make connections and build friendships thus he starts joining clubs. He would join Quidditch but the team is full so he settles for the Quidditch club. He scores well on most of his OWLS so he decides to continue on with Earth Magic, Care of Magical Creatures, Potions, Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms and Herbology.

    1883: A spot opens up on the Ravenclaw team, which Sparrow siezes.

    1884: Upon turning seventeen, Sparrow receives a pocket watch from his estranged grandfather who likely couldn't resist tradition.

    1885: After surviving (and profiting) from the whole plague/fire drama, Sparrow experiences 'tragedy' when a crisis happens in the Ministry. His father is among the first to die much to Sparrows displeasure. He mourns the loss of being able to end his fathers life himself.
