    Tristan Michaud
    In Character

    Full Name: Tristan Narcisse Michaud
    Nicknames: Tris
    Birthdate: June 30, 1870
    Current Age: 16 Years
    Occupation: Reserve Chaser @ Puddlemere United
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: 9 1/4", supple, beech, Demiguise Hair
    Blood Status: Halfblood, 1/8 vampire
    Social Class: Middle
    Family: --
    Tristan stands quite tall for his age at five feet, nine and a half inches and has an athletic build. He is right handed. Tristan has a natural pale complexion, due to his heritage, which makes his blue eyes all the more startling. He keeps his brown hair shoulder length. Tristan wears clothing that is typical of an middle class boy on the more wealthy end of the middle class spectrum. He favors darker colors, causing the paleness of his skin to stand out against his clothing.
    1870: Tristan is born.
    1876: Tristan has his first signs of magic.
    1879: Tristan and his family move from France to Wales.
    1881: Tristan gets his Hogwarts letter. Later in the year, he goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.
    1883: Tristan chooses Ghoul Studies, Ancient Studies and Ancient Runes for his electives. He is also a "victim" of the Amortentia Tea Crisis and ends up kissing a boy in the year above him. Luckily, Tristan suffers no consequences aside from discovering that he is as attracted to boys as he is to girls.
    1884: The plague and fire do not personally effect Tristan since he does not live in Hogsmeade. He is currently waiting for the school to reopen and plans to try out for the house Quidditch team. He gets it and begins his school Quidditch career as a beater.
    1885: On New Years Eve, Tristan meets Rasmus Mohr and begins a long, forbidden romantic affair with the half-veela. He has a lot of fun and hijinks through the year as he enjoys his time with Rasmus. He also befriends Fred Harrington and Hector Prince, having once made out with the former. Later in the year, he and Hector become mortal enemies due to the fact that they were caught locked in a bathroom together because Hector wouldn't leave Tris alone. He has a lot more adventures and misadventures. This same year, Tristan's father dies and he is placed in the care of his uncle instead of remaining with his mother.
    1886: Tristan switches to being a chaser. Rasmus's family is outed as being part veelas and Raz loses his prefect badge because of it.
    1887: Tristan's mother dies in February. Hogwarts bans halfbreeds which affects Tris due to his part vampire heritage. Only a select few know the truth of his reasons for beginning his Quidditch career early. Publicly and in the DP, he has said that the reason is due to his being orphaned and feeling the need to start his career early since it didn't require NEWTs (on top of the fact he has a business he's set to inherit). He's as salty as the ocean about it all. Not his best year.

    At least he gets onto Puddlemere as a reserve chaser so that's something.

    Sept 1887 - Tristan is promoted to the first string.
    Manipulative. Impulsive. Charming. Extrovert.
    Sample Roleplay Post: The empty year slot in the Gryffindor column slowly ate at the womans soul. So did the Hufflepuff slots but Emma assured herself that perhaps her young incoming firstie would be a Hufflepuff or one of the other incoming unsorted lot would fill the void in Hufflepuff. One could only hope. She also planned to have young Tristan try out for the quidditch team because hell, why not?
