    Appearance: Eugene has shoulder length dark brown hair and brown eyes. He stands quite tall at precisely six feet, zero inches and has a slightly muscular build. His wand hand is his right hand. Eugenes clothing are those typical of a lower class male but he keeps himself as clean and tidy as he can.
    1868: Eugene is born the child of a prostitute who does not even know who his father could possibly be. She decides to keep him despite being unmarried.

    1873: A brother is born. He, too, has an unknown father. This same year, Eugene shows his first signs of magic by accidentally causing a seed to rapidly bloom.

    1877: Eugenes mother wastes no time settling into the new settlement of Hogsmeade.

    1878: Eugenes mother marries but her new husband states that he will not care for bastard children. Eugene and his brother are forced onto the streets where he cares for them. Eventually, they are taken in by an upper class family and made to work as unpaid servants as the family feels room, board and food is payment enough.

    1880: Eugene gets his Hogwarts letter and is permitted to go off to Hogwarts. He is promptly sorted into Hufflepuff. An outgoing boy, he finds himself making a small group of friends.

    1881: Eugenes grades prove to be atrocious and render him unable to achieve any sort of scholarships. He is unable to return to Hogwarts. He keeps in touch with his friends via letters and when they are old enough, Hogsmeade weekends. He and his brother continue to work for the same family.

    1882Eugenes position is promoted to footman. With this, he starts to earn the pay of a galleon a week.

    1884: Eugene finds out that one of his close friends has died due to the laughing sickness and is quite distraught. He worries for the others and checks on them often, even if they may be unaware of it.

    Sample Roleplay Post: It took Catherine a moment to realize that she was not yet acquainted with this man, at least she didn't think she was. She had automatically thought that since he had asked that she was. Catherine had a small moment where she wondered if anything terrible would come of her having accepted the dance before dismissing the thought. He was hardly dragging her off somewhere and her father stood not too far with her stepmother. Surely the tiny moment of impropriety could be forgiven. With that thought in mind, Catherine allowed herself to be lead onto the dance floor.

    Catherine had the decency to blush slightly at the reminder that they had never been formally introduced before this dance as would have been proper. She could not help but to smile just as sheepishly back up at the man. Hopefully he would not think that she did such improper things often. "Miss Catherine Dalton. And why yes, it has been quite enjoyable. I have attended twice before but it is somehow quite different when one is debuting," she stated, her movements graceful as she followed the so far unnamed mans lead in the dance. "May I ask with whom I have the pleasure of dancing with?" She asked, wondering who he was and resisting the oddest urge to make the question flirtatious. It was not a normal urge for her to have but the young blonde decided not to dwell on it lest it ruin her enjoyment.
