    Josiah Rohlwing
    #1
    In Character
    Full Name: Josiah Rohwling
    Nicknames: Joe
    Birthdate: 25th April 1860
    Current Age: 24 Years
    Occupation: Irvingly School Caretaker
    Hogwarts House: N/A
    Wand: N/A
    Blood Status: Muggle
    Social Class: Lower
    Family:
    Father: Henry Rohlwing
    Mother: Agnes Rohlwing
    Brothers: Jeremy Rohlwing, Jason Rohlwing
    Sisters: Tuesday Hatchitt nee Rohlwing
    Appearance:
    Josiah has a thin, wirey build, more due to childhood malnourishment than lack of physical strangth. He is rather tall, standing at six feet, two inches which makes his thin frame all the more prominent. He has long, dark hair that he usually keeps in a ponytail and dark brown eyes. His clothing is quite obviously second hand and usually frayed, patched or threadbare.

    History:
    1860 - Josiah Rohlwing is born.
    1866 - A sister, named Tuesday, is born. With more strain on the family finances, a six year old Joe begins working in a factory.
    1872 - A brother, named Jason, is born.
    1875 - A factory accident claims the life of Josiahs father.
    1878 - Pneumonia claims the life of Josiahs mother, leaving the children under Jeremys care.
    1881 - Another factory accident claims the life of the fiance of Josiahs sister as well as a Mr. Ingrahm. Mr. Ingrahms widow and children are treated badly by the factory owners. The Rohlwings, along with five other families band together to rally for better work conditions. They are driven out of their homes and fired from their jobs, forcing the six families to wander across the country for months.
    1882 - Managing to survive with one anothers help until spring, the six families settle in one place and establish Irvingly. Soon, their lives are in upheaval once again as magical folk happen upon their small settlement. An agreement is established between the two groups and a Casino along with homes are built. Faced with different employment options for the first time in his life, Josiah decides to work as a labourer so that he could work outdoors, as he always wished he could do.
    1883 - Josiah is quite surprised when Tuesday unexpectedly marries a wizard by the name of Noah Hatchitt. Another surprise comes to the Rohlwing family as it is discovered that the youngest of their brood, Jason, is in fact a muggleborn wizard.
    1884 - As more businesses were established and the opening of a train station, Joe decided to get a more secure job as the caretaker for the Irvingly School.

    Personality:
    HARD WORKING - QUIET - CAUTIOUS - OUTDOORSY
