    Esteban Zavala
    In Character
    Full Name: Esteban Wallace Zavala
    Nicknames: Wally
    Birthdate: May 27, 1861
    Current Age: 23 Years
    Occupation: Captain and First String Keeper for Puddlemere United; Activist
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: 11", ebony, swishy, phoenix tail feather
    Blood Status: Half
    Social Class: Middle
    Family: --
    Esteban stands at five feet, nine inches and has an athletic build from years of playing Quidditch in the Quidditch club. He has green eyes and Loreal worthy, curly light brown hair. His wand hand is his right hand. Esteban wears the typical clothing of a middle class man though he tends to veer towards the more casual side though he does like his suits as well.

    1861: Esteban is born to a Mexican immigrant and his English wife in London, England. Both were magical but neither of them were purebloods. The two had met when Estebans father was in the country for a Quidditch game since he was a Quidditch Captain for a foreign Quidditch team and had stayed in touch which had led to courtship and eventually, marriage. That being said, a love for Quidditch is instilled in Esteban almost since the day he was born.

    1867: Esteban shows his first signs of magic by enlarging his toy broom.

    1872: Esteban starts his schooling and immediately joins clubs including the Flying and Quidditch club. He is a gregarious boy and has no trouble making friends.
    1876: Esteban takes his OWLs and gets decent results.

    1877: The upheaval luckily doesn't effect Estebans family too much though they are among those migrating to Hogsmeade.

    1879: Esteban graduates with decent NEWT results but goes for being a second string Keeper for the Puddlemere United team. To allow his parents more space since his mother was pregnant, Esteban moves into a wizarding apartment in London, England.

    1881-1883: Esteban is elevated to First String Keeper in 1881. This same year he also becomes more involved in activist type activities. This is what ultimately led him to becoming part of an activist group that meets regularly enough for him to have befriended a majority of the lot. He dragged along his best friend and roommate "Marius" to one of these meetings. In 1883, Esteban becomes Captain of Puddlemere United.

    1884: The plague doesn't effect him other than his mother falling ill. Happily, she recovers.

    Esteban quite enjoys women but he is careful about his indescritions. He would never do anything that might tarnish a womans reputation and cause her to fall from grace so it is a very rare thing for him to have sexual relations with fellow middle class ladies and obviously women of the upper class. He has never been in love with any of his past flings and doesn't see it happening for him at all nor does he really want it to.

    Esteban sometimes uses his prominence to subtly nudge his fans towards the groups causes. He never does anything especially untoward, however, which allows him to comfortably hold his position as a professional Quidditch player. As easy going as ever, he also isn't too fussed on what will happen if he does one day go too far and lose his position. He scored enough NEWTs to land a decent job so he doesn't let himself worry too much. Besides, worrying causes wrinkles.
