    Victoria Abney née Crewe, mother
    Mariana Abney nee something, stepmother
    Dimitris Abney, brother

    Appearance: Archelaus is a boy with brown hair and green eyes. He is right handed. He tends to have a serious look about him that never really softens unless you are a close family member or friend. Arch has a pale complexion that only serves to make his green eyes all the more striking. He tends to wear wizarding fashion when it comes to clothing and he is fond of somber colors like grey, black, and brown. He currently stands at 5 feet, 2 inches and has a lean build.
    1872: Archelaus is born the first son and heir of Alexander and Victoria Abney.

    1875: A brother named Dimitris is born.

    1876 - Arch shows his first signs of magic by levitating some of his toys.

    1880 - Victoria passes away due to some sort of illness. Arch takes the loss hard.

    1883 - Archs father remarries. The boy has no solid opinion one way or another about the woman since they interact very little.

    1884 - In September, Arch goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin. He joins a numerous amount of clubs and tries out for the Quidditch team. He is determined to shine and is quite ambitious from the get-go. He doesn't make the team but he is gifted a top of the line broom for Christmas that year.

    1885: The plague claims the life of Dimitris. Archelaus can't truly say he's bothered by the loss. His family are fortunate to not have been among those effected by the fire.

    1886: Archelaus develops an interest in Potions. When the Seeker position opens up in February, he tries out and is pleased when he gets it.
