Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

The Matchmaking Menace
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Adoptable Characters

Friends, Romans, Countrymen—anyone tied to your character that you would like to see in play! Ads can be as vague or specific as the requester desires, but should include some ‘unique’ information to distinguish from general networking. Characters needed for specific plots would be better suited to our Plottable Characters listing instead :)

These ads will be cleaned out infrequently throughout the year, but players will be given notice to ensure all posts are up-to-date and posted with active accounts.

Kayte's Adoptables

Welcome to your seduction ;) Before we get started, I do have a few policies regarding my adoptables:
  • Please reserve your character with me before apping!
  • Obviously, I'd prefer activity from anyone to take these on XD If, after six months, I don't think you're doing much with them (I have very lax standards, don't worry!), I reserve the right to ask you to give them up so someone more active may take them on.
  • I'll give you two weeks after loosing a character in an AC before I put them back up for grabs! If you drop them via Maintenance, they become immediately available again. If you just want to temp drop them, talk to me first! :)
  • Anyone picking up one of my ads must include the family and personality sections. I provide the family in all my applications so just mentioning the names is quite fine by me. Personality can be as minimal as three basic traits, just so I know for sure that our ideas of the character mesh.
If you have any questions about any of the characters below, fire off a PM to @Aldous Crouch, catch me on skype, or stalk me in the cbox ;)

For Cyrus

ARIA BELBY
[Image: luHY3bn.jpg?1]
B. 1874 | MCHB | NOT HUFFLEPUFF | FOURTH YEAR (’88)
Every month, Cyrus sends his daughter a letter to reassure his estranged family that he is still alive. Every month, Aria does not respond. She took great offence to her father’s leaving, and is quite sensitive about all matters involving werewolves. Privately, she suspects Cyrus was the one to turn Topaz Urquart, though she won’t say as much aloud—she doesn’t like to draw undue attention to her family’s situation.  Suggested PB is Willow Shields. Reputation is 6. She was previously played.

For Elinor

AMOS GOYLE
[Image: yp68tji.jpg1]
B. 1856 | MCPB | SLYTHINDOR | SOLICITOR
Elinor’s elder brother and the heir to their father’s home and legal practice. A soft purist, Amos found the idea of his sister marrying a muggleborn to be ridiculous and supported his father in his decision; while has thought of her a few times in the years since, he has no interest in reaching out and is quite satisfied pretending she does not exist. He does, however, worry that his daughter (he has at least one child, and she’s female xD) will follow a similar path. He is married, and lives with his wife, mother, and whatever children they have in Hogsmeade or somewhere in England. The suggested PB is Joshua Jackson with alternatives to have brown hair.

Immediate Ties: @Elinor Goyle

~
For Elijah

GABRIEL URQUART
[Image: seZIT2k.jpg?1]
B. 1877 | UCPB | SLYTHERCLAW | FIRST YEAR (’88)
Elijah Urquart is not a kindhearted lad, but for his little brother, he makes an exception, displaying instead as warm and protective. For his part, Gabriel is less a criminal mastermind and more a snuggly bunny whose misbehavior serves only as an attempt to mirror his questionable role model of an older brother. The two are under the guardianship of their uncle Caspar. The suggested PB is Iain Armitage. He was previously played.

Immediate Ties: @Elijah Urquart
Potential Ties: @Flora Mulciber @Joella Wood @Sirius Black @Archer Belby @Adrien Blackthorne

For George

WILFRED WATERFORD
[Image: vkVlJ9Z.jpg?1]
B. 1832 | MCAB | SLYTHERIN | MINISTRY WORKER
The only surviving Waterford of his generation, Wilfred has, for as long as he can remember, aimed to restore his family to its former glory. The first step was to marry a woman for her dowry, though he is genuinely very fond and protective of his wife. The second was to produce an heir and continue the bloodline—hence misregistering George. Even with a proper son, Wilfred knows he has gone too far down the rabbit hole to change things now, and sees the family’s future as hinging upon George’s continued masquerade. He is a strict leader in his household, and plans to run in the next Ministry election. The suggested PB is Joseph Fiennes.

Immediate Ties: @George Waterford
Bonus Ties: Ministry employees, as determined by his department.

ELEANOR WATERFORD
[Image: t3ts1i8.jpg]
B. 1840 | MCAB | GRYFFINPUFF | WIFE
An only child, Eleanor had a shelterd childhood and adolescence, and was her father’s sole heir when he passed during her sixth year. She married Wilfred as much for security as for love, though is a diligent wife to him. She loves her children dearly and often tries to play peacekeeper between husband and firstborn, with mixed results. Emotionally, she is rather fragile. She is heavily involved in an appropriate local charity. The suggested PB is Winona Ryder with alternatives to be brunette.

Immediate Ties: @George Waterford

"JULIAN"
[Image: r59tUeE.jpg?1]
B. 1874 | MCAB | HUFFLECLAW | FOURTH YEAR (’88)
The de facto leader of their little group because of his outgoing nature, “Julian” is a confident boy and possibly the son of a former quidditch sensation. He is in either Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, though struggles academically—even in his best subject, DADA, he only just scraped an E. The suggested PB is Caleb McLaughlin.

Immediate Ties: @George Waterford @Thomas Montgomery
Potential Ties: @Aleksei Nichols @Cane Backus

"ABEL"
[Image: pyr5cMW.jpg?1]
B. late 1873 | MCAB | SLYTHERPUFF | FOURTH YEAR (’88)
The eldest of the group, “Abel” is in Slytherin or Hufflepuff, and knew “Thomas” prior to beginning at Hogwarts. Abel is the youngest of six children, and as a result wavers between horribly immature and thinking he’s much more ‘adult’ than his peers. He dreams of one day being an auror like his father and oldest brother (sub in some high military rank if you make him MB). The suggested PB is Ty Simpkins.

Immediate Ties: @George Waterford @Thomas Montgomery

For Holliday

IRENE FUDGE
[Image: g70Mv2e.jpg?1]
B. 1875 | MCHB | SLYTHERPUFF | THIRD YEAR (’88)
#MostLikelyToBeADebutante. Of the Fudges, Irene is the most likely to eschew a middle class lifestyle and try to marry up, though her ambition is tempered by her kind heart and loyal nature. She and Holliday are affectionate but not close, and a part of her that she would never admit to is afraid that her sister’s friendship with Topaz Urquart will cause Irene problems herself. The suggested PB is Malina Weissman with alternatives to be brunette or dark blonde-haired. She is unsure what to make of her father’s present status, but tries to be optimistic about it—at least in his presence.

Immediate Ties: @Holliday Fudge @Paxton Fudge @Somersby Fudge

SUNDAY FUDGE
[Image: XpOSPXK.jpg?1]
B. 1878 | MCHB | TBA | INCOMING FIRST YEAR (’89)
The youngest of the Fudge brood, Sunday has always been a lighthearted and resilient girl who has spent all the life she can remember living at the resort. Hogwarts is a distant idea to the young witch, who loves the ocean and is reluctant to leave it in the autumn. She writes to her siblings throughout the year, but it's anyone's guess if her stories are true or fabricated—she's got quite the imagination! The suggested PB is Eva Ariel Binder.

Immediate Ties: @Holliday Fudge @Paxton Fudge @Somersby Fudge

For Maeve
Other Connollys are certainly available—check out Maeve’s profile to see if any pique your interest!

PÁDRAIG CONNOLLY
[Image: hGooCkS.jpg?1]
B. 1823 | MCHB | GRYFFINDOR | AUROR
Maeve’s father, with whom she is quite close. Pádraig loves his wife dearly but would not support her in her quest to see Maeve a Proper Lady™--he did, however, bow where Brighid was concerned. An auror of many years, he is steadfastly loyal to the Ministry though, like most of his family, has a fun-loving nature. He seems to be the only relation of his generation to support Domhnall’s ambitions wholeheartedly. Pádraig is a loyal man, though is the King of Grudgeholdia—he views Desmond and Lorcan’s leaving as a slight akin to murdering the family dog in cold blood. The suggested PB is Duncan Lacroix with alternatives to be dark or red-haired.

DUBLIN CONNOLLY
[Image: 16JUPI1.jpg?1]
B. 1861 | MCHB | GRYFFINDOR | UNSPEAKABLE
The only person on the planet that Maeve is closer to than her father or sister, Dublin is her cousin and the two went through school together. She works as an Unspeakable at the Ministry, and while she has been engaged four times, she has never actually made it down the aisle. The suggested PB is Hannah John-Kamen with alternatives to be mixed-race b/c her mom.

For Odira

GIDEON BROWNE
[Image: hZCvRcN.jpg?1]
B. 1865 | MCPB | RAVENCLAW | HEALER
Odira’s twin brother, Gideon was always the shyer of the two, and took his sister’s disappearance particularly hard. He got along well with Bennet, and while he was reluctant to interact with Odira when she first came home, has set about mending fences since her husband’s death out of loyalty to dead-Bennet and pre-amnesia-Odira. He obtained a hospital internship the year he finished at Hogwarts. Like his sister, he is a romantic at heart; unlike his sister, his current status (23, living with the parents) means he knows he can’t do anything about it yet not that he won’t The suggested PB is Hale Appleman with alternatives to be dark-haired.

Immediate Ties: @Odira Potter @Calliope Riley @Loretta Browne @Prudence Browne
Potential Ties: Any played healers, incl. @Baxter Keene

JAMESON LEONARD POTTER
[Image: CK2V23j.jpg?1]
B. AUG. 1883 | MCPB | — | CHILD
The eldest child of the late Darcy and the late Eulalie Potter, young Jamie is much beloved by his aunt and guardian, Odira. He is a curious boy with good-manners and a strong sense of child’s logic—Auntie O might say no if he asks to go to the park, but if he goes to the park without her say-so, he won’t technically be disobeying her! He doesn’t much care for book learning, much to Odira’s dismay. Realistically, he can be played with ease in Padmore Park, Denbright’s Emporium, or Honeyduke’s Sweet Shop as long as Nanny is NPCed as being in tow. Anywhere else, he should be with family! The suggested PB is Mapk Doronin.

For Roslyn

IDRIS ROSS
[Image: xWCqL5R.jpg?1]
B. 1878 | MCHB | TBA | INCOMING FIRST YEAR ('89)
The eldest child to the Minister of Magic and his wife, Idris has always had the sense inherent in being Roslyn's child but the outgoing nature necessary to thrive in a large extended family like the Fisks. His feelings on his father's election are up to you, as are his feelings about going off to Hogwarts in the coming autumn! The suggested PB is Lonnie Chavis. He is mixed race, with a black father and a white mother.

Lynn's Family Ads
Current as of 11/30/18.
For Ernest Mulciber:
Mrs. Mulciber
Ernest's mother, Marguerite (name open) was born in 1820 and is an UCPB. She resented Ernest before he was even conceived for not arriving in the world earlier, as his delivery (her second) left her free to put her wifely and motherly duties aside in pursuit of her true passion: dominating the wealthy pureblood social scene. Although never a particularly affectionate mother, she was much more fond of her oldest son, Edwin, and hand-picked his future bride when she arranged his marriage to @Rufina Mulciber. She was the one who pushed to move the betrothal over following Edwin's death, because she liked Rufina more than either of her sons, really, and there was no sense in losing the connection she'd worked so hard to get.

I have no specific plans for her but potential funtimes involve being quietly disparaging of Ernest, mentoring Rufina and potentially Rufina's bff @Ursula Black as well, doting on her granddaughter @Flora Mulciber, pretending to forget that her grandson @Merriweather Mulciber exists (she was not particularly fond of Ernest's first wife or the circumstances under which the marriage transpired), chumming it up with @Lucy Pettigrew, Josephina Flint, and any other UCPB socialites around her age, ruining the prospects of new debutantes for fun, hosting the best parties, funding research into anti-wrinkle cremes made from the tears of younger women, etc. She'll also have a front row seat to upcoming #dramaz feat. Lynn & Kayte & co., and who doesn't want that?

Pictured PB is Christine Baranski, alternatives to be fabulous.


For J. Alfred Darrow:
Evander Darrow
Reserved for MJ.
Evander Darrow is a MCHB born 1849. He and Alfred were never close as children owing to the fact that Evander was kind of a bully/a little shit as a kid. He has some sort of Ministerial career and for a long while believed himself to be the last of his particular branch of Darrows, until Alfred returned from the dead in September of 1887. His marital/family status is open! He disapproves of Alfred's expeditions; whether that's because he doesn't like the career as a whole or whether he's simply concerned his brother will go missing again is up to you!

Pictured is Ethan Hawke but PB is largely open.

Fallin's Adoptables

All play-bys are open to you, I just ask that they look related to the characters in their family. I am fairly flexible with whatever you would like to do to make the character your's, but please do let me know of any changes you are considering. And finally, pm @Sisse Thompsett to reserve before creating. I reserve the right to hold the reserve for only a week before I open it again. Thanks!

Wish list:
Catherine Smith for @Percival Adlard Jr.
Bee's Bixbys (See Below) for @Rufus Bixby
Matthew Thompsett, Jr. for @Sisse Thompsett

The Adlard Family

For Mr. @Percival Adlard Jr. & Miss. @Felicity Adlard
Percy is looking for his beloved sisters to be played. Most details about his family can be found in his profile but here’s a good sum up:

Catherine Smith, nee Adlard
MCHB | Any House | b. 1878

Also known as Cat or Cathy, Percy grew up being the closest to Catherine. Percy described her as bright, high energy, and prone to getting into trouble in their childhood. Not much has changed since then. Catherine is a MCHB widow (from the plague) with two young children (Alfred “Fred” & Constance “Connie”) who Percy absolutely adores. She graduated from Hogwarts in 1878, house is up to you, and married Timothy Smith in 1881. She had her first child, Alfred, in 1882 and was pregnant with her daughter during the plague. After the death of her husband she moved in with Percy until a cure was found at which time she stubbornly removed herself back to her old home and has remained there since. Cat has been portrayed as strong willed, kind, loving of her family, stubborn, cheerful despite her odds in life. She also worries for Percy and is looking for a wife for him, but she generally leaves this to Felicity.

The Thompsett Family

For Miss @Sisse Thompsett
The Thompsetts are a MCHB family, Sisse is close with her younger brother, Henry, however, she interacts most with her older brother Matthew who is also at Hogwarts.

Matthew Thompsett, Sr.
MCPB | Gryffindor | b. 1841

Born 1841 to a pureblood family, Mr. Thompsett attended all seven years of Hogwarts as a Gryffindor, before taking an internship with the ministry. He now works in the ministry in a job that Sisse has never quite figured out (i.e. up to you). He his a respectable man and worked his way up the ranks until he was able to support a family. He met his wife in 1873 and the two were set to marry within the first two months of their courtship. At the exposure of the wizarding world he moved his family to Hogsmeade in 1871. He is respected by his children and is more lenient that his wife in regards to what they can and can't do. He is frugal and most of his personality is up to whomever would like to play him.
#doubleup not quite a wanted
I've mentioned him as an auror and high up so Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Assistant Head of the Dept. Magical Transportation, or another ministry head position would easily pair with him.

Charlotte Thompsett, nee ---
MCMB | Hufflepuff | b. 1853

Born to a muggle family in 1853 Mrs. Thompsett was raised in Kent with her sister Sisse. She attended Hogwarts as a Hufflepuff and excelled at potions. Following graduation she worked as a seamstress at a wizarding robe shop. She had a whirlwind courtship with Matthew Thompsett and the two were married in 1871. She has had difficulties with pregnancies and as such is very protective of her children. She is loving but she tends to encourage her children to be respectable and model children. As such she can come off as a bit strict. Most of the affect her children have received comes at the hands of their nanny, Miss Hughes. Charlotte is a well respected woman in the community, however, she does have a tendency to keep her children at home when she makes social calls as she still considers herself somewhat of an outsider in the wizarding world and only wants her children to be seen as the best.

Matthew Thompsett, Jr.
MCHB | Incoming 5th Year Gryffindor | b. 1872

The oldest Thompsett child Matthew was born in 1872. He attended Hogwarts starting in 1883 and was sorted into Gryffindor. He's described in Sisse's posts as your typical popular boy, with lots of friends and an attitude to go with it. He also is known for thinking himself much more mature than his younger siblings. He loves exploding snap and quidditch but is afraid of flying (not a well known fact).

The Bellchant Cottage Staff
For Miss @Nimiane Bellchant

The Bellchant Cottage staff moved to Irvingly with Nimiane when she convinced her father that no one in their society would really want to marry her. He had had the cottage purchased for her in 1885 and she unofficially moved permanently there in 1886 despite her family's desire for her to continue looking for a husband. Now she is a self proclaimed spinster and spends much of her time there with the staff who her father has placed there for her comfort.

The Butler
WCAB | Some Magical Education | 40s-60s
Mister Bellchant put him in charge of his only daughter @Nimiane Bellchant when she 'retired' from the social scene to her small cottage in Irvingly. He doesn't neccessarily approve of Nimmie's situation and often seems stern around her, however, he does have a fondness for her as he has been with the family since her childhood. He thinks that Nimmie should be more social and is one of the few who knows that she is an author. He can disapprove of her being a squib or can sympathize, but I can see him being kindly but distant to Nimmie. He provides magic and protect for her and is one of the few to keep her company.

The Housekeeper/Cook
WCAB | Some Magical Education | 30s-60s
Has also been with the Bellchants for a good long while. She has lots of opinions and doesn't have a problem letting her young 'charge' know them. She feels like the banishment to Bellchant cottage is just that, perhaps because she also had to take on an extra role, and sees no good in Nimiane keeping from the rest of the world. She can have any opinion on Nimiane but I think at the end of the day she'll be protective of Nimiane.
#doubleup Ella Umbridge (nee ---)
This would work if she had to make a living and ended up working for the Bellchants, can adjust as needed.
#doubleupWilhelmina David for Aubrey Davis
In this case, she would have been promoted to Housekeeper with the move to the cottage


The Delaney Staff
For Miss @Caroline Delaney & @Shawn Delaney

Caroline and her brother came from London to further the Delaney shipping name. Their staff is handpicked and groomed from their father's employees.

Hope ----, the Maid
WCAB | American | 18-20
Hope and Caroline grew up together as such they are as close as thieves now. If Caroline's up to some kind of trouble you can bet that Hope is in on it. They may not have gone to school together but Hope has some education. She and her family are also very loyal to the Delaneys and she would have been raised for this position. She is from Boston and is from the working class. The rest is up to you.

A Batch of Beauregards
Middle Class Halfbloods
@Elsie Beauregard, @Adella Calendar, @Harvey Beauregard,
@Lucinda Cavanaugh & @Leah Beauregard

The family of Vincent and Stella Beauregard are originally from Liverpool, England. Vincent is a manager for a very large merchant shipping business and spends the majority of his time traveling for work. They have six children, though in 1883 lost their eldest son. They also have a family ward who is grown and moved out, Shay Ross. Their full history is in Elsie's profile.


Charlotte "Lottie" --- Beauregard
May 23rd, 1871 | Puff/Claw | single | 9 rep
7th Year Student
Raffey Cassidy

The older of the twins, Lottie is much more alike Elsie in personality than anyone else. She tends to like school and is more quiet, but warm and caring. She and Owen are opposites of one another in many respects and but tend to get along alright. She's a GREAT candidate for #prefectseason, as she is responsible and studious!




Owen --- Beauregard
May 23rd, 1871 | Gryffindor | single | rep 9
7th Year Student
Chandler Canterbury

A quidditch nut through and through, Owen is not the best of students. He and Lottie are not always close, but they do get along fairly well. He likely plays for the house quidditch team if there's space! Adventurous and outgoing he's pretty quick to make friends, but can sometimes be a little flakey.

The Brothers Bixby
Middle Class Halfbloods
@Sloane Bixby & @Rufus Bixby

The Bixby family is centered around quidditch. Carson played and now coaches; most of the boys play as well or have some involvement with brooms. Even Ma Bixby works in the Broom Regulatory Office. Sloane is the baby and only girl, but she doesn't want to be treated as such! They're kind of quirky (thus the 8 rep) dad is super laid back and all about the sport and mom just goes with the flow, though she would like Sloane to have some ladylike qualities.


Carson --- Bixby
1834 | open house | married | 8 rep
Professional Quidditch Coach
Eric Bana

Patriarch of the Bixby clan, Carson is very much a laid back creature. Most everything in his life revolves around quidditch. His boys play, he's totally down with Sloane playing and his wife works with brooms; it's all relevant. He and Fiona married for love and get along quite nicely. He is pro-female athletes and could easily be  considered a soft feminist. He coaches a pro team (likely the one he played for professionally!) but always makes time for his kids! I wouldn't say no to him being the flight instructor at Hogwarts, if it ever opens up!

#doubleup with the Hogsmeade Howler's Coach, he's been mentioned as coaching a different team, but could make the move!


Alvin --- Bixby
1867 | open house | single | 8 rep
Apprentice Broom Maker
Dylan O'Brien

Certainly the brightest of the family, Alvin may or may not have played quidditch in school. If he did, probably was not as good at is as Rufus, which he may have been self-conscious about. Regardless, after graduation he chose to follow more in his mother's footsteps and pursue an apprenticeship with a broom maker. Delighted, Fiona encouraged him to give it a shot!

#doubleup with a not quite a wanted


Harrison --- Bixby
Sept 1 - Dec 31 1870 | open house | single | 8 rep
7th Year Student
Quinn Lord

A traditional middle child, Harrison is the balance of the Bixby siblings and the most likely to baby Sloane especially now that she's at school; which she can sometimes resent. He's a decent student and likely plays for his house team in quidditch (or is in Club Quidditch!)! He may or may not choose to go into quidditch after school, or may go into the DGMaS instead!


Wallace --- Bixby
1873 | open house | single | 8 rep
Incoming 5th Year Student
Jake Short

Wallace is the only other sibling to rival Sloane in energy. He was a little put out when she was born, especially since she was a girl and took a while to warm up. They have an okay relationship and he is most likely to encourage her adventures and is a mediocre student. He probably plays for his house team as well (or Club Quidditch!)


The Lynch Ladies
Middle Class Purebloods
@February Umbridge, @September Lynch, @January Lynch, @October Lynch & @August Lynch

The Lynches are a  MCPB family with a little bit of drama. August disappeared on New Year's eve going into 1886. He was gone for over a year and presumed dead. He was later found over a year and a half later, with absolutely no memory of where he was or what happened. Febs was #distraught about it, despite the fact that they had weren't super close. The girls who have graduated are debutantes of some degree, though their success is minimal so far! February has recently had some "misadventures" including newspaper articles, WW features and a whole host of rumors... WELL SHE MARRIED HIM. So there. Bonus ties to @Edric Umbridge



Romilda "Rose" --- Lynch née Moody
1844 | open house | married | 8/9 rep
Plucky Housewife
Rachel Weiss
(alternatives to be age-appropriate brunettes)

Rose used to be a more carefree mother, a bit of a daydreamer with the slightest of sights, she can mostly accurately predict the weather, but little more. She does to tarot readings and dabbles in divination as a hobby, which is likely where September gets her love of divination from. Rose's parenting changed with August's disappearance, though why specifically is fairly open. February's recent antics have showed the change more viscerally. What she thinks Febs was up to and what she wants to about it are open for the drama-llama of it all; but she and Febs are barely on speaking terms after the elopement. She may have connections via her maiden name, but I'm not sure they exist anymore, I need to dig haha!



Queen Keene
Middle Class Halfbloods
@Baxter Keene

The Keene siblings are from a comfortable middle class family in which their father died shortly after Perry's birth. He left them set financially, though emotionally it was rough. Bax took it hard, but it also took him a little while to own up to the responsibility of being the family head. Asa and Perry Keene are also up for adoption and are listed the spreadsheet at the top!


Catherine "Kitty" --- née Keene
1859 | open house | married | 8/9 rep
Housewife
Scarlett Johansson
(brunette)

Kitty is, and will always be, the most dominant of the Keene siblings. She is married (or widowed!) and likely has children that will be close to Hogwarts. Her mother lives with her and her family and Kitty commands a household like no other. Since Baxter's promotion she had made it her sole mission to see him married as she thinks it's long overdue. How she felt about his previous engagement is open as are her feelings about @Odira Potter and Baxter's relationship with her. Kitty is heavily involved in charity work, especially concerning the hospital and has organized several fundraisers and events for it since Bax's promotion.

For Peony Pokeby
@Peony Pokeby


POPPY POKEBY

b. 1868 | WCHB | Open House | Open Occupation | Suggested PB: Emily Robinson

The sister of @Peony Pokeby. The "golden child" of the family, Poppy always minded her parents and, to the best of her ability, molded herself into society's ideal young woman. Peony has always believed her sweetness is inauthentic, and that the letters she sends have ulterior motives (but whether they do is up to the player). Everything else about her is open, from her career path to relationship status to reputation. She lives in Ireland with her parents, but may commute elsewhere for work.

POSEY POKEBY

b. 1870 | WCHB | Gryffindor/Slytherin | Open Occupation | Suggested PB: Maisie Williams

The sister of @Peony Pokeby. Born the final child to her parents, Posey made sure everyone knew this fact and used it to her advantage whenever necessary. She always dreamed of escaping poverty, but was unwilling to turn dreams into action and eventually dropped out of school. It's unlikely that she was a Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff while at Hogwarts. Everything else about her is open, from her career path to relationship status to reputation. She lives in Ireland with her parents, but may commute elsewhere for work.

For Bella Scrimgeour
@Bella Scrimgeour | @Lucille Flint


MEDIA SCRIMGEOUR (NÉE BULSTRODE)

b. 1842 | UCPB | Slytherin | Disgraced Socialite | Suggested PB: Amanda Peet

The mother of @Bella Scrimgeour and the wife of @Argus Scrimgeour. The eldest of three children, she married her first cousin, Argus Scrimgeour, shortly after graduation and would present him with three children throughout the 1860s. She suffered greatly during this time period, first with her husband's early retirement and subsequent mental instabiluty, and then when her daughter was kidnapped. She recently suffered great reputation damage when her husband assaulted her daughter, was arrested, and then sentenced to three months in the asylum. She currently resides in Wales to hide from public ridicule, and has been recently widowed. Her reputation is a 4.

ARAMINTA SCRIMGEOUR

b. 1868 | UCPB | Slytherin | Disgraced Debutante | Required PB: Lera Sarbaeva

The identical twin sister of @Bella Scrimgeour. The eldest of the twins, Araminta grew up as an only daughter after her sister was kidnapped as an infant. The two were later reunited, but were never close; they both spent their early lives in two entirely separate worlds, and could relate to each other on very few things. When Bella was disowned, she was distraught, both for the loss of a sister and for the damage to her reputation. She currently resides in Wales, and is beginning to feel the weight of isolation. Her reputation is a 4.

For Edric Umbridge
@Edric Umbridge (& by extension, @February Umbridge)

OSWALD UMBRIDGE

b. 1819 | MCPB | Open House | Factory Empire Owner | Suggested PB: Harrison Ford

The father of @Edric Umbridge. The owner and manager of a muggle and magical factory empire, the only thing stopping Oswald from ascending to the UC has been his modesty and seclusion. He and his wife married for two entirely different reasons, and once that became clear, their marriage fell apart. His wife ran off with a lover and left him with a toddler-aged Edric, and he divorced her years later on the grounds of abandonment and adultery. A distant and disapproving man, he's gone weeks without seeing his only child for weeks on end, leaving Edric with a bit of self-esteem and abandonment ~issues. His reputation is a 7/8.

For Handsome Whitledge
@Handsome Whitledge | @Sweetie Whitledge | @Darling Whitledge

CUPCAKE WHITLEDGE

b. 1869 | UCHB | Gryffindor | Debutante | Preferred PB: Holly Taylor

The twin sister of @Handsome Whitledge. The eldest daughter in the Whitledge family, she was also the only one without any clear career goals. Her interests always lied in hobbies that, while not exactly inappropriate, were considered odd for a woman of her status. Her family has seen great conflict in recent years: their father died in '84, their mother died in '87, and their grandmother (who was serving as an unofficial guardian) died in '88. Now under the sole watch of her brother, she's taken a break from the husband hunt to help him, both emotionally and with the household. Her reputation is a 9.

RESERVED FOR BEE

For Myra Dursley
@Myra Dursley

"CLEMENT" DURSLEY

b. 1867 | MCHB | Open House | Magical Occupation | Suggested PB: Alex Wolff

The elder brother of @Myra Dursley and an available canon. Born to a muggle man and a muggleborn witch, "Clement" [name open] knew nothing of magic until he began exhibiting signs of it himself. He was the first to go off to Hogwarts, and later was horrified to find out his younger brother was a squib. His parents died in a house fire in 1883, leaving them to live with the muggle uncle and cousins. He now works a magical occupation, and recently received his inheritance. His reputation should be no more than an 8.

"TERENCE" DURSLEY

b. 1872 | MCHB (Squib) | Irvingly Schoolhouse Student | Suggested PB: Asher Angel

The younger brother of @Myra Dursley and the only non-magical child in the family. Having spent most of his childhood, Terence was surprised to find out that magic existed, but was less disappointed to find out he had none himself. Whereas his relationship with his elder brother has suffered, his relationships with Myra and his muggle cousins have not. He's a happy child, and enjoys life as it is, but sometimes ponders on how life might be different with magic. His reputation should be no higher than an 8.

I have characters labeled in levels of priority. This doesn't necessarily mean I don't want the "low priority" characters made, but rather that they're less intertwined with my character's doings at the current moment! I'd still love to seem them played if you're interested!
  • A "High Priority Character" is one whose actions are directly tied to the actions of my character at the current moment and likely have the ability to make decisions that could affect the fate of my character. Such characters might be parents to unmarried women, potential love interests, etc.
  • A "Medium Priority Character" is a one who is probably mentioned as an NPC somewhere and would be good to have around for current doings, but whose actions and involvement wouldn't likely directly affect whatever plots are happening. Such characters may be members of a friend group, relatives who they rely on for advice but not support, etc.
  • A "Low Priority Character" is one who likely isn't involved with the day-to-day doings with my character, likely because they have a life separate from my character. They may be a younger sister off at finishing school or Hogwarts, a married brother off with his own family, etc.
The Backus Family
— For @Magdalena Byrne, @Madeleine Backus & @Cane Backus   —


BARTON BACKUS
b. 1843 | WCPB | Owner/Baker @ Backus Family Bakery | Suggested PB: Aaron Eckhart
Medium Priority Character

A generally jovial baker, Barton Backus is Maggie’s father. She looks up to his phenomenal baking skills and strives to be as good as him one day. He married for love and is still very much in love with his wife. He focused on raised his children with a good work ethic and had no problems with his children staying in school after their OWLs, so long as they maintained scholarships to do so. He was stunned and a bit angry at Maggie's confession of her elopement to Lorcan Byrne and subsequent purchase of her own bakery in Diagon Alley. He hasn't spoken to her since her birthday May 3rd but will ultimately be supportive and probably even proud.
Immediate Ties: @Magdalena Byrne, @Madeleine Backus, @Cane Backus, @Lorcan Byrne
Potential Ties: @Gideon Ollivander, @Quincey Honeyduke


KATERINA BACKUS NEE KOZLOVA
b. 1846 | WCMB | Manager/Accountant @ Backus Family Bakery | Suggested PB: Eva Herzigova
Medium Priority Character

Katerina Backus is a sweet and kind witch who has very little magical training, her parents having disliked magic and allowed for her to have just enough training so she didn’t blow things up. Her parents were quite upset with her attentions being directed at Barton but couldn’t bring themselves to outright disown her. Instead, they sent Barton and her away quietly with “hush money” to which the two started their own bakery in London after being quietly married. Having a good head for numbers, Katerina saw to the business’s accounts and kept the bakery quite successful. They were able to purchase property outright after moving to Hogsmeade in 1877 and built apartments above the bakery on High Street so the family could live there. She’s ever the doting mother and worries frequently about her children but is always proud of any of their accomplishments. She was quite hurt when she heard of the death of her parents even if she hadn’t spoken to them for two decades. She cried at Maggie's confession, mostly due to the abruptness of it all and not over anger. She's happy for Maggie and figured it was only a matter of time before her daughter too things into her own hands to achieve her dreams. She's remained in contact via letters and likely went to the grand opening of Maggie's shop. She also wrote to Maggie just before the fog blanketed Hogsmeade to see if Cane could come and stay with her.

Potential Ties: @Gideon Ollivander, @Quincey Honeyduke


RYE BACKUS
b. 1865 | WCHB | Assistant Baker @ Backus Family Bakery | Suggested PB: Zachary Grenenger
Medium Priority Character

Rye Backus may be the jokester of the family but it hasn’t stopped him from being just as hard of a worker as his father. He’s easily take over the family business when his father is too old dead to continue. He’s a bit jealous of the money his sisters received from their grandparents and maybe even a bit bitter at why he and his brother didn’t receive any. He was pissed at Maggie's announcement and yelled quite a bit before storming out of the bakery. He hasn't spoken to her since and likely won't go to the grand opening.  Whether he comes around on the idea of Maggie having her own shop will be up to the player

The Beasley Family
— For @Raymond Beasley, @Coleman Beasley —


RODNEY "ROD" BEASLEY
The Intellect
b. 1866 | WCHB | OWL Level Career | Suggested PB: Jazz Pope
Medium Priority Character

Rod is something of an entitled ass and the Intellect of the family. He's the only one of his brothers that received OWLs but only because of his brothers' help. They pooled their money to see to it Rod got an education. But instead of showing thanks by being thankful, he tends to rub it in his brothers' faces. Except for Ray. He no longer does so in front of Ray. He's the one brother that has his own room in the flat they all share, insisting such because he has the best paying job.

The Brown Family
— For @Monet Brown & @Grant Brown —


LENORE BROWN neé RODGERS
b. 1846 | MCPB | Housewife & Art Collector | Suggested PB: January Jones
Medium Priority Character

Lenore was always an avid art collector but has hardly any artist talents herself. Though quite creative, she's never been all that great at actually getting her ideas onto paper. Her love of art saw her name her children after famous artists and then took it a step further by giving them middle names featuring different shades of brown. Monet's birth was particularly hard on her, resulting in her no longer being able to have children after. She became rather close to Monet in 1884 when she was the sole child in the household.
Immediate Ties: @Monet Brown & @Grant Brown
Potential Ties: Londoners


VINCENT SORREL BROWN
b. 1870 | MCPB | Jeweler Apprentice | Suggested PB: Steven Chevrin
Medium Priority Character

The oldest of the Brown brothers, he's begun apprenticing under his father so that he can take over the shop one day. He has the same creative eye as his parents and quite enjoys the calming work of making jewelry. He's a hopeless romantic and hopes to one day marry a woman that he truly loves. His house at school is open!
Immediate Ties: @Monet Brown & @Grant Brown
Potential Ties: @Handsome Whitledge, @Mundungus MacFusty, @Owain Edwards, @Garrett Cavey


CLAUDE UMBER BROWN
b. 1872 | MCPB | Slytherin Student | Suggested PB: Sam Harwood
Medium Priority Character

Vincent is surely the athlete of the family but it doesn't necessarily mean he's all brawn and no brains. He's intelligent and even a bit cunning with a bit of a mischievous side. He is likely on the Slytherin Quidditch Team but when he made the team is up to the player. Of all the brothers, Monet is closest to Claude.

PIERRE TAWNY BROWN
b. 1873 | MCPB | Ravenclaw Student | Suggested PB: Dakota Goyo
Medium Priority Character

Pierre is the smart one of the bunch and often has his nose in a book. He can't be arsed to do anything overly physical, feeling there's much better things one can do. He was often at the receiving end of pranks by Claude and Monet.

The Jewell Family
— For @Jameson Jewell, @Sherry Jewell & @Florence Jewell  —


STERLING JEWELL
b. Late 1838 | MCMB | Owner/Founder of Jewell Magical Distilleries | Suggested PB: Thomas Krestchmann
Medium Priority Character

Sterling is a muggleborn that inherited his family's distillery when his father passed away in 1859. Having already met and fallen in love with Flo at Hogwarts, he immediately started courting her after her debut in the same year. They were married by the end of the season and welcomed their first son the following year. He adapted the family's distillery to better serve the magical world and started focusing on firewhiskey. He eventually began introducing flavored firewhiskey to the world with a mixture of success in the beginning before it really started catching on. He still very much loves his wife and can never really tell her no. He's all about fairness and as such, has his will well laid out with the company being split evenly between his sons as well as ensuring very generous dowries for his daughters and their own set of shares within the company.


HENNESSY "HENNY" JEWELL
b. 1860 | MCHB | Co-Manager of Jewell Magical Distilleries & Adventurer | Suggested PB: Tom Hopper

Henny is very much a go with the flow kind of guy and tends to be pretty passive where ever conflict is concerned. His profession is his sole focus in life as it is where his true passion lies. Determined and task oriented, the world around him often gets tuned out. As a result, it hasn't benefited his engagement in the slightest. He loves his family but adores his time spent traveling with Jamey in search of new ways to advance the family's company. He loves the experience of the places they travel to even if a friendly competition of sorts has evolved between the brothers over finding the next great concoction of flavors.


MADEIRA "MADS" ---
b. 1865 | MCHB | Adventuring Housewife | Suggested PB: Gabriella Wilde
Medium Priority Character

Mads is, quite simply put, the spitfire of the family so it only made sense that the firewhiskey based off her is one not for the faint of heart. Mads Firewhiskey is infused with extra spice and burns quite a deal more than a basic firewhiskey. She surprised everyone in the family when she found a gentleman that could handle her fiery nature to settled down with. She's enjoyed many adventures since then, as he was a bit of an adventurer himself.


JULEP "JUJU" JEWELL
b. 1868 | MCHB | Sweet Debutante | Suggested PB: Sophie Turner
Medium Priority Character

Where Mads is fiery, Juju is sweet and kind. She never has an unkind thing to say about anyone and instead is the epitome of a quiet and demure young lady. As such, she was the muse behind another sweetened firewhiskey only this one being infused with vanilla, Juju Firewiskey. She tends to be more of an observer and doesn't often get into the middle of all the excitement her family can get into. She's taken to heart the love she sees between her parents and longs for something like it for her future. She's also quite artistic and designed the distillery's insiginia as well as designed the cameo labels for all the firewhiskey line. With the new shop being finished, she started making a variety of merchandise and memorabilia to be sold.

The Langley Family
— For @Fletcher Langley" —


KENTON LANGLEY
b. 1833 | MCHB | Healer | Suggested PB: Brad Pitt
Medium Priority Character

Kenton Langley always dreamed of becoming a healer and did. He’s a very focused and driven man who wanted nothing but the best for himself and then his family. He fell in love with Brigit from the moment he met her but nothing solidified until she had become a full healer. They were married the beginning of 1856 and he the ever doting father when Fletch was born in 1857. He was a bit disappointed when it took so long for Brigit to become pregnant again and then quite wary as she struggled with the pregnancy. He asked her not to go back to work once their daughter was born in 1867. He’s probably promoted into a higher position overtime and is up to the player’s discretion. The family moved to Hogsmeade during the big rush in 1877 and could still be there or could have gone to Irvingly. He stayed out of the way of his wife and daughter’s matchmaking scheme’s for Fletcher, knowing his son can handle it on his own in time.


BRIGIT LANGLEY NEE ---
b. 1836 | MCHB | Retired Healer/Socialite | Suggested PB: Kelly Preston
High Priority Character

Brigit Langley was a rather ambitious woman and never expected to fall in the love the way she did with Kenton. And while she loved her son, she wasn’t about to give up her career once he was born. She was secretly pleased when she wasn’t able to get pregnant right away though still happy when she had her daughter ten years after having Fletcher. Unfortunately, the pregnancy and birth took a toll on her and felt her husband’s suggestion of her not going back to work was the best choice. She took a more hands on roll with raising Abigail. The two were always up to matchmaking schemes, certain Fletch would never find a lady for himself as work was clearly his mistress. But now that there is a lady in the picture, she’s unsure of what to think. After a series of not so fortunate events where Abigail began acting out, she ultimately made the decision with Fletcher's prodding to send her to a finishing school elsewhere. Whether she’s upset over not being the one to having done the matchmaking or actually having to give up her son to another woman is up to the player.

I would love for both mother and daughter to be in play asap so they can join in on the upcoming drams for Fletch and Eva!

The Woodcrofts
— For @Emmeline Woodcroft & @Hudson Woodcroft

See Canon List


ANDREW WOODCROFT
b. 1835 | WCHB | Open Job | Suggested PB: Kyle MacLachlan
Low Priority Character

Andrew Woodcroft was born in Hogsmeade when it was little more than a hamlet, being a descendent of the original founder. He left shortly after his graduation in 1846-47 only to return in 1875 when his father passed away and left him the Three Broomsticks. Unfortunately, it only remained in the Woodcroft family’s hands for two years having gambled it away in 1877 during the great rush to Hogsmeade. It caused quite the rift between him and his son leaving the two on non speaking terms. Andrew was not at all pleased with the sight he found his daughter in with a Hit Wizard and had quite the discussion with him. Both agreed she should finish her schooling but he expected the other man to mind his manners from then on out if he ever wanted to see Emmy again.


AMELIA WOODCROFT
b. 1842 | WCMB | Open Job | Suggested PB: Kate Beckinsale
Low Priority Character

Amelia Woodcroft is a muggleborn witch that is a kind soul that seems to constantly be playing the mediator within her family. With so much animosity, she just wishes for happiness and understanding.She spends more time putting “fires” out between family members that her children lead their own lives with little influence from her. Having taking quite the fancy in Charlie, Emmy's beau, Amelia arranged for a dinner one night and then took Andrew out of the house. Things escalated between Emmy and Charlie and they were found in an almost too compromising of a position. Feeling partially responsible, she's helped to smooth things over with Andrew and still helps to chaperone whenever Charlie is present.

For @Aubrey Davis
(& @Henrietta Davis)

The Davis family are working class halfbloods from Yorkshire, and all bar the eldest son have gone into domestic service like their parents. Not sure there's enough to do playing a domestic servant? Well, aside from the option to double up one of these ads for household staff who've already been requested, you also get the baggage of a brother who went missing ten years ago and has been trying to find his way back to you ever since. He's a hedgehog, y'all. You know you want a hedgehog brother.

(Names/faces/ages are all relatively flexible, but faces should be "plain"-ish and light-medium colour in hair.)

JACOB DAVIS

B.1854 | WCHB | PB: HARRY OR LUKE TREADAWAY

Jacob is the eldest child, and was the only sibling able to be financed through Hogwarts long enough to obtain his OWLs, meaning that he was able to go into a profession with more opportunities and a higher wage than being household staff for the rest of his life. Everyone else may be a teeny bit bitter about this. His personality and life beyond that is incredibly open! He may be single or married, have been in any house, etc.

WILHELMINA DAVIS

B.1856 | WCHB | PB: RACHEL MCADAMS

Wilhelmina managed more than just the one scholarship year at Hogwarts, so may have up to four years of schooling and may have once had greater ambitions than domestic service, but somehow she has ended up there anyway. Otherwise, she is incredibly open, and could also be made to fit another ad! Reserved for Ian!

POPPY DAVIS

B.1863 | WCHB | PB: ELIZABETH OLSEN

Poppy, like Aubrey, found her first year at Hogwarts tough to get through academically, but has pretty good people skills which mean she is usually well-liked by her employers. She could potentially double up as "Ida" for Rufina Mulciber, but bonus points all round if the household she works for have played Hogwarts-age children through whom Aubrey can hear about her circumstances xD



For @Carmelina Cramming
(& @Errington Warbeck, @Jossima Warbeck, @Marmaduke Warbeck, @Goodluck Warbeck  )

The Warbecks are a big, happy family from northwest Wales with slightly over-the-top names, who are all up in each other's business and generally obsessive Holyhead Harpies fans. PBs should have some family resemblance, but otherwise Carmelina's siblings are all fairly open to do with as you please, and you're welcome to combine them with other ads where possible!

FAVORETTA ______ NEE WARBECK

B.1850 | MCHB | PB: THANDIE NEWTON

The first child and (probably) her mother's favourite, Favoretta is either married or widowed, with some number of children. She's a bit of a diva, mothers the rest of her siblings relentlessly, and probably has some sort of MC-appropriate pastime or occupation for a married woman - she might be the centre of the MC social scene; may be a chaperone for some younger girls; or maybe she spends her days making ridiculous hats. She was in any house at Hogwarts.



For @Elias Grimstone
(& @Ruth Lockhart)

SIMON GRIMSTONE

B.1834 | WC -> MC MUGGLE | PB: JEROME FLYNN

Father to Elias, Ruth and Tony. Simon comes from Portsmouth and a muggle, working class family. He is skilled in carpentry and - like his father, brothers, and most of the men in the area - apprenticed and worked as a shipwright in the local dockyards. Through industry troubles, he has always struggled to make enough to support his family, though both he and his wife were adamant about giving their children a full education. Proud as he is of Elias' successes, he has always felt awkward accepting the benefits of it in return, which have seen them living a more comfortable life (though Simon continues to have quite a gruff attitude about most middle class society). He has also always struggled with the magical/muggle barrier, feeling a little like an outsider in his own family - but when Ruth and her husband moved to Irvingly, Simon and Lucille finally followed suit. His occupation in Irvingly is open, whether carpentry-related or something entirely different: he may see Irvingly as a second chance of sorts, to be less distant from his children's lives - but he's basically a fish out of water all round! As personality goes, Simon isn't so different from his children: he works hard, has a dry sense of humour (and at heart, maybe he’s a romantic), but he is also hot-headed and very, very stubborn. I am ridiculously attached to Jerome Flynn as his face. xD

LUCILLE GRIMSTONE

B.1837 | WC -> MC AB | PB: LINDA CARDELLINI

Mother to Elias, Ruth and Tony. Lucille has always had an adventurous spirit, though in practice it hasn’t carried her far. Fortunately, she is unafraid of hardship, with a bright demeanour and the resourcefulness and practical sense to usually land on her feet. She is a witch, also born into the working class, and she married Simon for love (although her parents may have expected her to do "a little better" than Simon). Lucille attended Hogwarts in any house, probably to no further than OWL level. She was pleased to have left Portsmouth at last - she was the one who pushed for the move to Irvingly - and is especially grateful to get to spend more time with Rue and to help look after the grandchildren! Lucille has worked throughout her life, and may now run a seamstressing service or something similar out of the house. Suggested face is Linda Cardellini.



For @Jemima Farley

The Farleys are MCPBs from Tutshill, and I'm very flexible with them! You're more than welcome to combine with other ads/plots.

Also available: IKENNA "KEN" FARLEY and BESS FARLEY. Both the Farley parents come from wizarding families, and are very fond of each other - nearly as fond as they both are of muggles, and they are fascinated by all aspects of muggle life. Both black sheep in their usual circles, it was this likeness that brought them together many years ago. They are very enthusiastic people and, whatever their careers, very publicly campaign for pro-muggle rights and blood equality. (Imagine having two Arthur Weasleys for parents. Good. Now you know what they're like.)

SOLOMON FARLEY

B.1861 | MCPB | PB: JOHN BOYEGA

Solomon works as a healer in either Hogsmeade or London, and, being his parents' son, has grown up very curious and very knowledgeable about muggle "doctors". He's a lovely guy, but whether his inclination towards bold new approaches - and minor obsession with testing out new muggle medical trends in his workplace - has largely helped or hindered his career is up to you! He probably had fun in the fog, though.  

DELILAH FARLEY

B.1864 | MCPB | PB: LOGAN BROWNING

The black sheep in this family, Delilah is probably the least swayed by her parents' "muggles are so great, kids!" approach, and presumably has grand plans for her life that do not include being dragged on any more "no-magic family holidays". Whether she has a career, or is single/courting/engaged or even married, I honestly do not care.  

ZIPPORAH FARLEY

B.1869 | MCPB | PB: AISHA DEE

While Zipporah may be living the deb life in theory, in reality she likely spends 90% of her social interactions on the topic of eccentric muggle inventions. Or her own inventions. Her general vibe is 'cute but weird', do what you want with that.

NOAH FARLEY

B.1874 | MCPB | PB: ROSHON FEGAN

Jemima's only younger sibling, Noah is at school with her in any house. His personality is open, but Jemima absolutely finds him annoying, because what little brother isn't? For extra funtimes, Noah gets a prime front row seat to Jemima's Oncoming Diary Storm at Hogwarts, which may well have... negative effects on his own social reputation at school. xD



For @Leila Scott

In 1883, shortly into her St. Mungo's internship, Leila was attacked and became a werewolf. The Scotts did not, by and large, take this well, and promptly disowned her. As you can probably tell, they care fiercely for upholding their Social Reputation and Doing What Is Best For The Family. They used to live in London, but at some point moved to Hogsmeade, which is where Leila has just shown up. Cue endless potential for uncomfortable encounters. ;)

DAVID SCOTT

B.~1838 | MCMB | PB: HUGH JACKMAN

David came from a muggle family, and although he discovered the wizarding world many years ago when he attended Hogwarts, he was still extremely unprepared for the "werewolf daughter" thing. He is likely genuinely scared/hostile towards half-breeds of all kinds, and, while he may miss her, also thinks Leila probably would have been better off dead. PB is Wolverine mostly because I find it ironic.

MEI LI SCOTT NEE CHANG

B.~1843 | MCHB | PB: LUCY LIU

Mei Li (or "May Lee", if she wants to Westernize herself further) is more concerned with the social propriety side of things. This may be because she has some prior experience of scandal in her natal family and saw what the effects of social ruin could be, or simply because she is a fierce defender of her family and protecting her children. Eldest-born Jade has always been her favourite though, which leaves Leila to wonder whether they would have disowned Jade as quickly as they did her.

JADE SCOTT

B.1863 | MCHB | PB: ELIZABETH WOOD

The Golden Child, quiet and well-behaved and utterly ladylike, everything was blossoming for Jade when Leila went and messed things up. Jade had been engaged to her perfect man, but this advantageous match was abruptly broken off at the time of the werewolfing. A few options here: 1) a blessing in disguise? Mr. Man was only perfect on paper, and Jade was secretly relieved to be freed from the engagement? 2) Jade was heartbroken/sad that she wouldn't be megarich, and now blames Leila from a distance for everything shitty in her life, and their relationship if they meet again would be far more sour than it used to be. Jade may have married since 1883, if you like, possibly unhappily, to a match nowhere near as good as her first fiancé, out of panic and desperation. Or she never wants to marry anyway so whatever. You do you.

DANIEL SCOTT

B.1866 | MCHB | PB: ROSS BUTLER

Poor Daniel. Whatever he wanted to do with his life, it wasn't probably wasn't to end up working in the Werewolf Capture Unit. But he does, and his parents like to think this is a firm demonstration of the family zero-tolerance policy on werewolves, even in their own family. Daniel's own opinions are entirely open, but he doesn't love the idea of defying his parents, either. Now that Leila's back nearer to home, the official family policy is that everyone is strictly forbidden from acknowledging or talking to her... but how easy that will be with Leila coming in to spend every full moon under the Ministry's eye? (Alsoooo Danny is prime friend potential for my babes, Tyb and Theo, hello!)



For @Porphyria Dempsey
(& @Don Juan Dempsey and @Lycoris Dempsey )

The Dempseys are an UCHB family who live near Galway in Ireland. They are all varying levels of eccentric, although still respectable enough to get invited to society things (their reps should reflect this). The name scheme - being named after a poem and the poet who wrote it - was decided on by Eamon and Lowri before they were even married. Much love to Beans for letting me straight-up steal a lot of the descriptions below.

EAMON DEMPSEY

B.1824 | UCHB | PB: GARY COLE

A notable poet and cheerful eccentric, Eamon was his parents' heir. His hobbies include waxing poetic about the wilderness, going on ill-advised sailing ventures, and humouring his wife. Porphyria probably gets on fabulously with him.

LOWRI DEMPSEY NEE _____

B.1836 | UCHB | PB: JULIA LOUIS DREYFUS

Reasonable and well-spoken, Lowri is occasionally tempted to strangle her children our of sheer exasperation. A poet like her husband, she is quite fond of Keats, and took no issue with the naming scheme Eamon proposed. (Except perhaps for Don Juan. That was tempting fate, she thought.)

OZYMANDIAS SHELLEY DEMPSEY

B.1856 | UCHB | PB: HALE APPLEMAN

Their eldest son, Ozy might take the 'KING OF KINGS' instruction too seriously, and never mind the poem's implicit warning. He spends a great deal of time trying to come up with ways to be famous. Porphyria thinks he is ridiculous.

ENDYMION KEATS DEMPSEY

B.1859 | UCHB | PB: LUKE ARNOLD

Vain but cheerful, Endymion works as a cursebreaker/auror/something similarly adventurous-but-flashy. Once banged a Veela in a hammock in the garden, an event witnessed by his mother and Shalott and which has never been quite forgotten by any of them. Knows more about flower language than his sisters consider strictly reasonable. (Can you tell whenever I can't think of a suggested face I just put someone in from Black Sails?)

CHRISTABEL COLERIDGE DEMPSEY

B.1865 | UCHB | PB: MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD

Bright and lovely, Christabel frequently attempts to debunk the unexplained. Though she has always intended on getting married - she has no intention of winding up like Porphyria - she may have an academically inclined job/hobby of some sort until that happens. Porphyria's notoriety may also be haunting Christabel's hurling attempts, so it's no wonder that the two of them bicker a lot.

Bree is magical and let me copy this for my own adoptables.
I have characters labeled in levels of priority. This doesn't necessarily mean I don't want the "low priority" characters made, but rather that they're less intertwined with my character's doings at the current moment! I'd still love to seem them played if you're interested!
  • A "High Priority Character" is one whose actions are directly tied to the actions of my character at the current moment and likely have the ability to make decisions that could affect the fate of my character. Such characters might be parents to unmarried women, potential love interests, etc.
  • A "Medium Priority Character" is a one who is probably mentioned as an NPC somewhere and would be good to have around for current doings, but whose actions and involvement wouldn't likely directly affect whatever plots are happening. Such characters may be members of a friend group, relatives who they rely on for advice but not support, etc.
  • A "Low Priority Character" is one who likely isn't involved with the day-to-day doings with my character, likely because they have a life separate from my character. They may be a younger sister off at finishing school or Hogwarts, a married brother off with his own family, etc.

The Ruskin Family

MARTIN RUSKIN

b. 1841 | MCHB | Open | Suggested PB: Gerard Butler
Medium Priority Character

The father of Acacia Ruskin and her siblings. He attended Hogwarts and was likely sorted into Ravenclaw, though this isn't required. He married a vampire in his youth, and had four children with her, before she ran off after they had a fight and she accidentally almost attacked him in rage. The reason for the fight is up for discussion.

He currently lives in Hogsmeade, Scotland with his three daughters, all three attending Hogwarts. His son had died during summer in the Tigerpocalypse. As well as this, he has recently found out that his estranged wife, who he had refused to allow reentry into their lives, had died as well. A caring and loving father, he is constantly looking out for his children and their well being, especially after all of the anti-halfbreed chaos over the summer.

ORINDA RUSKIN

b. 1874 | MCHB | Half-Vampire | Second Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Madison McLaughlin
High Priority Character

The sister of Acacia Ruskin. She attends Hogwarts, and her house is Ravenclaw or Slytherin. Having to deal with two sisters who have always been protective in their own way, Orinda may be the rebellious one of the siblings, though that is open.

News of her mother's death has recently come to the sisters at Hogwarts, and her reaction is up to player. With the half-breed ban recently lifted, yet some tension still in the air, the youngest Ruskin sister has a lot on her plate. She was previously played twice, though is open for changes.

ROSE RUSKIN NÉE BEAUCANON

b. 1823 | MCPB | Recluse Socialite | Suggested PB: Meryl Streep
Low Priority Character

As her husband sees her, Acacia's grandmother is naggy and dull. More purist in her older age, she married her husband for the sake of what she calls 'a romantic notion' despite her family. Both are now stuck with each other and try in their own ways to make the best out of a terrible situation. Even in the childhood of her children, she has always been closer to Elsa than she has to Martin. But ever since Martin married a vampire, their relationship has grown even more distant as Rose elects to give him the cold shoulder.

To say that she disapproves over her husband's affection for the half-vampire grandchildren is an understatement. She is bitter over their existence and has always felt that her son could have done better when it came to finding a wife. She does not know what actually happened between Martin and Lisa before the vampire left and they divorced. She had played insistent match maker for her daughter, and was quite the picky match-maker as well.

Having been a resident of Hogsmeade since 1877, since the reconciliation of 1888 she has been frustrated over the fact that Ellsworth has insisted that she remains in Hogsmeade instead of moving back to their London home. Her former house is open.

ELSA ___ NÉE RUSKIN

b. 1842 | MCHB | Socialite | Suggested PB: Leigh-Allyn Baker
Medium Priority Character

Married off by her mother to a pureblood man, her mother assured her father that it was a love match. Whether that is actually true or not is up to character. Taking after her mother, she despises her brother for his marriage decision. While she's not as judgmental towards her nieces and late nephew, she's not very caring towards them either. Her former house is open.

"RICHARD" ___

b. 18?? | MCPB | Open | Suggested PB: Mark Sheppard
Medium Priority Character

His views are obviously not too purist as he did marry a halfblood, though he would prefer to not associate with muggles if he could help it. The half-breeds of the family do worry him for the sake of his wife and children's reputation and safety, and thus prefer that they avoid that Ruskin branch. His former house is Ravenclaw.

LILY ___

b. Pre-Septmber, 1865 | MCHB | Debutante | Suggested PB: Haley Lu Richardson
Low Priority Character

A fairly neutral voice in her family's drama, she chooses to choose 'flight' in the flight or fight instincts. Preferring to keep to herself, she would far rather be spending times with like-minded friends than family. The fact that her grandfather was her professor is embarrassing to her, and she chooses to ignore that part of her educational career. Her house was either Slytherin or Ravenclaw. She might not be married.

JACK ___

b. 1867 | MCHB | Open | Suggested PB: Jacob Whitesides
Low Priority Character

His view on his family is open, though he respects his mother enough to not go against her whether he agrees with her or not. His occupation is a rather dangerous one in the eyes of his mother, but he swears that he's perfectly fine taking care of himself. By making a point of this, he does not live with his parents. He does live in Hogsmeade though. His house is Gryffindor.

MARIGOLD ___

b. September, 1871 | MCHB | Sixth Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Ellie Darcey-Alden
High Priority Character

She is likely the closest of her siblings to her cousins. Especially Acacia as they are so close in age. Before the ban, Acacia was a year ahead in school. While the ban was viewed as very bad to Marigold, she was pleased to find out that she would now be in the same year as her cousin until they both graduated. Largely ignoring her mother and grandmother, she prefers to spend time with the half-breed cousins and their shared grandfather. She is either a Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff.

b. 1875 | MCHB | Second/Third Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Bryce Gheisar
Medium Priority Character

Named after his great-grandfather (grandma Rose's father), he was born with a twin he's never known as said twin died after being born. Always having been a nervous child, he has what he considers to be a healthy fear of his half-vampire cousins. Avoiding them as much as he can, he does try to be nice about it in a 'please don't eat me' sort of way. He is either Hufflepuff or Slytherin.

The Lukeson Family

KING LUKESON

b. 1873 | UCPB | Fifth Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Johnny Orlando
Medium Priority Character

Despite being the last son of the Lukeson family, King has always felt pressure to do great things with his life. Not that his parents ever made him feel like this. The pressure mainly comes from being named King, as if that automatically means that greatness is expected. It doesn't help that he and Jolie witnessed the deaths of their uncle and brother. He tends to look up to Ace, as well as having an urge to look out for Sybille since she has been the youngest sibling until Rosie came along last year. He is either a Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw.

JOLIE LUKESON

b. 1875 | UCPB | Third Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Delaney Rose Stein
High Priority Character

Third of last daughter to the family does not mean that she wasn't spoiled dearly by her parents. This might have gone to her head a bit, but she is still a very sweet girl. Tending to follow Ace around like a puppy, they have a nice sibling bond, and she looks up to him a lot.

Though her house is open, she was not sorted into Ravenclaw, which greatly upset her. Possibly the most effected by the deaths that have happened around her (including also being a witness to the horrible deaths of her uncle and brother), this has shaken her greatly. She gets along with most of her siblings, though finding Sybille a bit odd and preferring to avoid her, but she is very close to her cousin Bellerose Rey. Her name is pronounced zho-LEE.

The Rey Family (Somewhat)

JADE ___ NÉE REY

b. 1846 | UCPB | Socialite | Suggested PB: Charlize Theron
High Priority Character

Ever since Guinevere died, she has constantly hovered and acted as guardian to the Lukeson children (she's really not, but try telling her that). Still convinced that she could at least get the younger children to have the views of blood purity to match her own, she has even gone so far as to screen their letters to the halfblood Rey branch of the family.

While it would certainly be up for debate as to whether it would be legal, Edgar Sr. has made it up in his mind that she is the heir in his will when he passes, as he is determined to keep his money away from his squib son and the rest of that lot.

Her former house is Ravenclaw, and she is married with children (the number of which is up to player). Aiming for family connections, it is very flexible as to which family she has married into as long as they are UCPB with no known scandals.

Low Priority Character

Though he is much less judgmental and stiff compared to his with, he is a purist. He never really judged Guinevere for keeping in contact with Hubert, but does agree that Jade is a much better option for the family fortune. His family and house are open, though I would love some connections if possible.

The Human Workers

"MR. ALFRED"

b. 1814 | WCAB | Employee of Spinnakers Funeral Services | Suggested PB: Michael Caine
Medium Priority Character

One of the last members of his family line, his father took in Blossom when she was still human. He was the youngest of his siblings, and may be one of the last living in his generation. He may or may not have children. Though having only known Blossom as a vampire, he is one of the few humans that knows details regarding her human life. They have a close familial relationship, as she treats him sort of like a nephew.

His duties on the job are cremation and coffin building. He is quite loyal to the business, and is the one in charge of training the new human employees (though he has been training "Janet" as a replacement for whenever he gets around to retiring). His house is open.

"MISS JANET"

b. 1871 | WCAB | Employee of Spinnakers Funeral Services | Suggested PB: Lee Jin-Sol
High Priority Character

A fresh faced young girl who dropped out of Hogwarts just before her fifth year, she's oddly bubbly for someone working in a funeral home. Her job consists of cremation and undertaking. For someone that is fairly new to the job, she is quite the natural. Why that is would be up to her player. Having started working at the end of 1886, she is probably the youngest employee to ever work for Blossom that wasn't born into a family who had already been working for her. Until her seventeenth birthday, she had been strictly prohibited against working without magic - as per legal requirements - but she did not let that stop her from doing her work.

Pupil to "Alfred", she has been guided under his wing. She does not yet quite realized that she's being trained to take over the role of teacher for new employees, as "Alfred" has been more social so far rather than getting directly to the point - making sure she would have the personality for the job. Her house would have been any thing besides Gryffindor.

"MR. NILES"

b. 1851 | WCAB | Employee of Spinnakers Funeral Services | Suggested PB: Charles Michael Davis
Low Priority Character

The gossip of the funeral home, "Niles" is always up for a good rumor. Sometimes he gets on Blossom's nerves because of this due to some rumors getting out of hand among the employees. Though she has come close to firing him on occasion, he's never done anything wrong in his work. Said work is typically quite impressive. Said job duties consist of funerary photographer and portrait artist.

Some of the other employees may also not like him for his habit of causing conflict within the work place, but those that get to know him that he's not trying to upset people. He just really likes gossip. WW is his favorite reading material, though he doesn't take it too seriously. Though he is the one that convinced Blossom that sending their ad in would be a good idea. His house was Slytherin or Hufflepuff.

Father of the Bénet twins, he has always been a bit of a light hearted man. Rather than being very upset over they twins' mischief, he tends to find it hilarious. A bit more active in their lives than most Upper Class men would be, he dotes on his little girls, and enjoys spending time with them.

Leaving France after the mourning period for the death of his family, he is still haunted by their loss. This may be one reason why he finds such joy in spending time with his daughters. He did not go to Hogwarts, having attended Beauxbatons Academy of Magic instead.

b. 18?? | UCPB | Open | Suggested PB: Emily Blunt
High Priority Character

Mother of the mischievous twins, she is much more disapproving of their actions. Though she does adore her daughters, she would much prefer them to be more proper young ladies. She is a soft purist, and does worry if Claire will ever show signs of magic. She does wish to have them both betrothed, but isn't sure if it will be a successful wish.

Spending time with the twins is something that she will happily do, but she does tend to feel that her husband is 'hovering' a bit too much in what is supposed to be her status in the household (taking care of the children, of course). After having the twins, she has been told that she may never have any children again, but hasn't told another soul of this. It is open whether she had moved to France after schooling at Hogwarts, or is she was born there, but she is of French decent. If coming from Hogwarts, she was either a Ravenclaw or Slytherin.

b. 1867 | UCPB | Debutante | Suggested PB: Melina Martin

Youngest among her siblings, she is pampered by the rivaling brothers. Though not a brat, she has her moments of letting it get to her head. Always having been their mother's favorite, though being the only other one to know this, she has taken after their mother the most, as a light spirited woman who lives more in the here-and-now.

The constant bickering of her older brothers frustrates her to no end, being the Hufflepuff that she is, and has constantly tried to make peace between the two. Both twins are very protective of her, and do wish to see her married to a good man.

ARTHUR BECK

b. 1858 | MCHB | Owner of an Herb and Floral Shop | Suggested PB: Anthony Mackie
High Priority Character

While not as odd as his wife and in-laws, he finds their eccentricity charming. Allowing his wife to name their children, he was glad that she at least had more sense of feminine and masculine names than her parents.

He was raised into the Church of Magical Jesus, and is a very big believer of the faith. He met his wife through the church, and later married her in the middle of 1886.

The Smith family is quite close and caring for each other, and often visit one another if someone doesn't live with the main household (such as married daughters and working sons), and this connection extends to family members that are in-laws.

Her and most of her siblings are named in order of closest to farthest planets from the sun... after Sun was born. Due to this, her parents ignored which names were actually more feminine or masculine when naming some of their children. Most children have learned to live with/accept/like their names.


ERIC SMITH

b. 1833 | MC | Muggle | Astronomy Professor @ muggle university | Suggested PB: Robert Carlyle

His early life is fairly open, but he has always had an interest in astronomy. Ever the nerd, he decided that it would be a wonderful idea to name his children after the sun and the planets… and then his wife had another child so they named her Moon. The surprise of having magical children was met with curiosity and welcome. Most of Eric’s questions have been directed towards his eldest child, Sun. He does have a fascination for the Church of Magical Jesus, and does ask Earth questions regarding this as well.

Her death hit him hard, but the responsibility of raising his (fraternal) twin sons Helium and Nitrogen kept him going. He is a passionate man, one who cares deeply for the things he holds dear.

This eventually lead to them deciding to get married in 1887, about a year after they graduated. They later opened their antique store.

Jade has always been a thorn in her side, but things have gotten worse since Guinevere's children became orphans. Trying to help Ace and his siblings through this big change, Jade seems to be on a mission to prevent Brenda from being in any contact with her nieces and nephews.

BELLEROSE REY

b. Post-September, 1875 | UCHB | Second Year ('88) | Suggested PB: China Anne McClain
Medium Priority Character

Out of all of her siblings, Belle is possibly the most bitter about being born after September because it meant waiting another year until she could go to Hogwarts with her best friend/cousin Jolie. Their connection is one to be rivalled with Sybille and Fleur, though the two sets of girls tend to clash and avoid one another. Belle finds her sister and cousin to be a little less odd than Jolie sees them, but will side with Jolie in a conflict.

Like her brother, she is bitter towards their paternal grandfather for the cold shoulder that they have been given since they were born. At least she isn't named after the man. She is in either Hufflepuff or Slytherin, and the hat nearly stalled while picking her house.

EDGAR REY

b. 1816 | UCPB | Open | Suggested PB: Michael Keaton
Medium Priority Character

Grandfather of Edgar II (though he is quite unpleased that the child was named after him), he has little to no contact of this branch of the family. This is due to the fact that Edgar II's father is a squib. Though never having disowned Hubert, he has always wished to, but did not wish to break the heart of his wife, who continues to love their child dearly.

Not as stern as his grandchildren would like to think, he can be a very caring man, when it counts to him. All of his other children, and even Hubert when it wasn't known that he was a squib, have always been spoiled by their father. His two daughter's branches of kids are still shown kindness, but several of them do not support his views, and therefor typically only see the negative of him.

Both a smart and resourceful man, he was likely in Ravenclaw or Slytherin. He is a stubborn man, though his wife is his voice of reason.

LACY REY NÉE ___
b. 1827 | UCPB Seer | Socialite | Suggested PB: Phyllis Logan
Low Priority Character

A bit 'out there', she is the wife of Edgar Rey. Though sad when learning that Hubert is a squib, she is still loving towards him. It had come as a shock to her, having had no vision of this. Tending to keep her gifts out of the open, she does not want to risk any negative reaction of others or being used because of her gifts.

On the day that Sybille shows her first signs of magic, Lacy had a vision that Sybille would be a powerful witch one day. Family connections would be amazing, if possible.

The Fairchild Family

ROSIE FAIRCHILD NÉE ___

b. 1850 | MCHB | Open | Suggested PB: Elizabeth Banks
Medium Priority Character

Mother of Hestia and her siblings, she is a new widow, and has recently lost her sons. A caring mother, she still tries to stay strong for her daughters. It had not been her idea to name her children after Greek Deities, but her husband had been so excited over the idea that she hadn't voiced her opinion on the matter. Hestia's recent fascination over Quidditch is seen as a coping process, so she had given her daughter permission to try out at the beginning of her second year of Hogwarts. Her house is open, but I can't imagine her as a Slytherin. I would adore some family connections, if possible.

❧ Immediate Ties: @Hestia Fairchild
❧ Potential Ties: —

ARTEMIS FAIRCHILD

b. Pre-September, 1874 | MCHB | Fourth Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Ryan Newman
Medium Priority Character

Her family is one of tragedy. Loosing a father and then both brothers, it changed the girl forever. Sadness has followed her following these losses, especially for her 'twin'. Though this is only known to her and her mother, her twin was never actually her twin. Born to their aunt out of wedlock, the woman died and the family covered the unmarried birth up and claimed that Artemis and Apollo were twins in order to save face. This story fit due to their days apart in age and the fact that their family was away on holiday for the pregnancies and births.

A proud Ravenclaw, this was a trait that she and Apollo had shared. She had found out the truth of their blood relation during the summer of '87 and hadn't come to terms with it until the death of Apollo on New Years of '88. For more detail, see old!Artemis.

The Lyness Family

ANDREW LYNESS

b. 1852 | UCMB | Open | Suggested PB: Tom Ellis
High Priority Character

Having fallen madly in love with Juniper from the moment they met (likely in part due to her veela charm), Andrew later married the redheaded veela. Though he came to learn of her nonhuman state, he still swore his love to her due to lust and what he claimed was "love". His personality is open to whoever takes him, but it's clear that he spoils and dotes on his wife.

❧ Immediate Ties: @Juniper Lyness, @Emily Lyness
❧ Potential Ties: @Wilhelmina Davis

DAVID LYNESS
b. 1885 | UCHB | Half-Veela | Child | Suggested PB: Open
Low Priority Character

Though less doted on by Juniper, her son is also viewed as an extension of herself, though less so than the female child. This may lead to jealousy, though he is still pampered anyway. At times, he will show acts of rebellion when seeing his sister gets more attention than him, and this could cause a bit of chaos in the household. He may even break things for attention.

❧ Immediate Ties: @Juniper Lyness, @Emily Lyness
❧ Potential Ties: @Leo Lupin, @Wilhelmina Davis

The Middlemiss Family

EDMUND MIDDLEMISS

b. 1821 | UC | Muggle | Open | Suggested PB: Jeff Goldblum
High Priority Character

As a widower, Edmund Middlemiss's world is his daughters, both biological and adopted. Especially the younger pair. Unfortunately, his eldest has fallen a bit to the wayside, as his second daughter is the spitting image of his late wife and the youngest...is a veela (a fact that he does not know, and he might not even know what those are).

He never remarried after Lenobia's death, out of heartache, though he may have taken a mistress (or perhaps a male lover). Besides his lasting love and grief for his late wife, he is a agreeable, yet close minded man, who adopted a young veela, who's turned out to be his favorite (though of course, the second daughter does enjoy some spoiling), shortly after his wife's death. He visits his wife's grave weekly.

BEGONIA ___ NÉE MIDDLEMISS

b. 1854 | UC | Muggle | Open | Suggested PB: Haley Webb
Medium Priority Character

The eldest of the sisters, Begonia is a jealous and stubborn woman who, in a very bizarre case, seems to be suffering Jan Syndrome - AKA Middle Sibling Woes. Such is life for the muggle sister of a muggleborn who resembles your dead mother and an adopted veela. Her sisters are a pair of spoiled brats, so, Begonia decided to get even. She managed to find a magical husband, and has at least two children. She knows of magic, now, but she still doesn't know what Juniper is.

❧ Immediate Ties: @Juniper Lyness, @Emily Lyness
❧ Potential Ties: @Wilhelmina Davis

The Lady's Maid

___ ___

b. ---- | WCAB | Open | Suggested PB: Dania Ramirez
Medium Priority Character

Hired not too long ago after the last lady's maid had an emotional melt down that was kept quiet for everyone's sake, she seems to be able to handle being employed to a veela at least a bit better than the rest of the household staff.

Having started as a housemaid, Juniper had encountered her several times in the Rosestone Estate and had partially grown fond of her. As fond as a veela could to a human they weren't married to or raised by, that is.

Deciding that she was a far better fit than the last lady's maid, the household maid went from being an Under Servant to an Upper Servant in the blink of an eye. While Juniper tends to not allow herself to get too mad most of the time, when she does it is usually at home. This means that her lady's maid is typically the one to witness the fits of rage of the veela.
Reserved for Ian.

The De Loncrey Family

ETHAN DE LONCREY

b. 1834 | MCAB | Open | Suggested PB: Dylan McDermott
Medium Priority Character

Former friend of Priscilla's first husband, that fell apart very quickly when the affair was discovered. However, he doesn't feel as guilty as his wife does. He attended Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Magical creatures tend to fascinate him, and he owns several types. This includes creatures in the 3rd and maybe 4th classification (depending on his career). Despite the drama that her birth has brought, Luce is his favorite and she can do no wrong.

PRISCILLA DE LONCREY NÉE ___

b. 1847 | MCAB | Wife & Mother | Suggested PB: Mädchen Amick
Low Priority Character

Her reasons for having an affair during her first marriage are up to the player. While she loves her current husband dearly (maybe), she does feel guilty for breaking her first husband's heart. A sensitive soul, she tends to keep mostly to herself. This leads to her being distant to her daughters. Due to a childhood accident, she now sees thestrals - fearing them for their appearance and being an omen of evil. She did not attend Hogwarts, having gone to Beauxbatons Academy of Magic instead.

STELLA DE LONCREY

b. 1872 | MCHB | Fifth/Sixth Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Alissa Skovbye
High Priority Character

The girls have always been close, but sisters will be sisters and they do tend to argue every now and then. Unlike Luce, Stella is a bit more of a wild card when it comes to what is expected of a woman. While Luce has considered finding a respectable lady-like occupation, Stella has set her eyes on more adventurous lines of work. She is either in Slytherin or Gryffindor. She may or may not be a bit bitter that their father clearly has a favorite.

The Lécuyer Family

NAEVA LÉCUYER

b. Post-September, 1869 | UCPB | Pendergast Rose | Suggested PB: Normani Kordei
Medium Priority Character

The most recent Pendergast Rose of the family, she is slightly frustrated that her older sisters left shortly before she began her studies with the Roses. Like her sisters, her reasons for being enrolled are due to their mother's dying wish of the girls having a full education. A fellow Slytherin to her sisters, she seems to be the pride and joy to their father. Less of a purist than her sister Odette, she is still more of one than Mireille. Or at least she acts that way, her true views are up to player.

She has no knowledge of the drama that went down between Mireille and their maternal aunt in the summer of 1883. The only thing she knows of the incident is that said aunt has been disowned for 'being a disappointment' and that no one is allowed to speak of the woman.

Witch Weekly is her guiding light, though she keeps this a guarded secret due to the fact that Odette openly dislikes the gossip that such papers spread. She does look up to Odette, and tends to keep her mouth shut when they disagree on certain issues - namely their sister.

Being the oldest living sibling of her family, she is the only one of them who no longer lives with Nicolas and Perenelle. But she still keeps up a good relationship with her family despite the odd feelings brought on by immortal guardians and the fact that Oscar and Estelle have a closer bond than she has to either.

Heya!  These are the adoptables for Finn.  If you want to play someone, please contact @Billie Farrow.  Please try to be active!

Characters with stars are MOST wanted.  ******

Someone be a Binns relative!

Plottables!

All of the below adoptable characters are for @Gilbert Whitechapel.


**Hazel Whitechapel**
18 (1870) | Not Gryffindor | Working Class | Muggle-Born
Works Somewhere in Hogsmeade
Hazel has a good head on her shoulders.  She did well with her OWLs, and she probably could have gone on to complete her NEWTs with a full scholarship.  However, she knew she needed to find a way to rescue and support her little sister, so she dropped out of school and found a job in Hogsmeade.  She does very well for herself.  She gets frustrated with Gilbert, but it is very clear that she loves him.
Play-by must have blonde or brown hair. 
Reserved for Miri!



Colin Whitechapel
15 (1873) | Any House | Working Class | Muggle-Born
Incoming Fifth Year
After the death of their parents, Colin ended up with a muggle family who truly cares for him.  They accept him as a wizard, and they fully support his future prospects.  However, he feels left behind.  All his magical siblings seem to be together, except for him.  He resents them all because of it, and he has recently started to resent his muggle family for not being magical.  He has fallen in with the wrong crowd at school.  Colin often visits his siblings, but he can't stand his brother.  He doesn't understand his brother's mental illness and considers him a failure.
Play-by must have blonde or brown hair.


Evie Whitechapel
11 (1877) | Unknown House | Working Class | Muggle-Born
Incoming First Year
When their parents and siblings died, Evie was shuttled off to live with a neighbor.  When she was eight, her guardians also perished, and she found herself residing in an orphan asylum.  It took a full year for her older siblings to discover her whereabouts, and another year for Hazel and Gilbert to find jobs and a place to live where they could also support another person.  She now lives with Hazel, and she's excitedly preparing to start Hogwarts.
Play-by must have blonde or brown hair.


Theodore Trigg, Sr.
50 (1838) | Hufflepuff | Upper Middle Class | Pureblood
Works at the Ministry
Kindhearted and giving, Theodore Trigg took Gilbert in after his parents died at age twelve.  He also took charge of his younger sister Hazel.  The pair stayed with the Trigg's during the summer and over the holidays.  He provided financially for their basic needs, but both children were able to receive scholarships up until fifth year.  When they both left after fifth year, Theodore still helped them, even assisting them in their job searches.  He views Gil and Hazel as practically his own children.  He is incredibly patient with Gilbert.  Theodore works at the ministry in some capacity.  His wife died in a potions accident when his son was only four years old.  His family is pureblood, and he has a few siblings.
Play-by must have dark hair.


**Theodore "Teddy" Trigg, Jr.**
20 (1868) | Ravenclaw | Upper Middle Class | Half-Blood
Hogsmeade Hospital or St. Mungo's
Teddy inherited many of the positive traits his father has, and he was the one to teach Gilbert how to read and write while they were at Hogwarts.  He always wanted a brother, and that's exactly what he sees Gil as.  He is the only person who fully understands his friend, and he gives him either a shoulder to lean on or a kick in the pants that he needs.  Teddy is a very gifted healer, and it is likely he played quidditch while at school.  He is very close with his father, and he has a bit of a crush on Hazel Whitechapel.
Play-by must have dark hair.


All of the below adoptable characters are for @Ava Gedge.


Dorcas Anne Gedge
52 (1836) | Probably Slytherin, but any house | Working Class | Pureblood
Whore & Some sort of common job
Dorcas is the mother to three children:  Ava, Isaac, and Eliza.  All three of her children were fathered by three different men.  She sleeps around, and, sometimes, she receives payment for her nightly escapades.  By day she has an ordinary job.  At least the two eldest children have no relationship with her, though she would very much like to weasel money out of them.  She comes from a middle class pureblood family.  Gedge could be here married name, or her maiden name.
Play-by must have dark hair.


Gregory James Tibbet
48 (1840) | Any House | Working or Middle Class | Pureblood
Any Profession
Gregory is Ava's father.  He found out it was him due to Dorcas drunkenly rambling at him.  He has never revealed he has a bastard, and neither Dorcas nor Ava wish to out him.  Gregory sent Ava presents when she was a very young child, and he helped fund her second and third year of school.  He was unable to continue for his wife gave birth to their first child.  Gregory most likely has 1-3 children.  Whether he seeks to keep in contact with his daughter is up to the player!
Play-by must have blonde hair.


**Eliza Gedge**
21 (1867) | Any House | Working Class | Half or Pureblood
Any Profession
Eliza is a pretty open slate!  Ava is very close with her.  She helped support her when she was young, sending much of her money to help support her.  When Eliza went to Hogwarts, Ava helped pay for what Eliza's scholarship wouldn't cover.  They do not have the same father.  There are 2 possible options of who her father is, but nobody is 100% sure.
Play-by completely open.


All of the below adoptable characters are for @Thomas Montgomery:


James Montgomery
36 (1852) | Any House | Working or Middle Class | Muggleborn
Any Profession
James is the father of Thomas.  He is a muggleborn who lives in Irvingly.  He was part of the expedition there and decided to keep his land and house.  His wife ran away with a pornographer.  His parents moved into their home so they could be closer to their son and grandson.  He's probably sad.  Him and his wife aren't properly divorced, yet.  His personality, etc. is super, super open.
Play-by that has dark hair and dark eyes.

(And if you really want to play a muggle, he does have two paternal grandparents.)

All of the below adoptable characters are for @Zachariah Binns


Meriwether Binns
60 (1828) | Gryffindor | Middle Class | Halfblood
Any Profession
Zachariah's father is fairly open. He has a good relationship with Zach and Juliana. He somewhat butts heads with Hugo, but it's very clear he loves his children. He's originally from London. He doesn't quite understand Zachariah's obsession with books, but he tries to be supportive. His profession is a bit more hands-on.
Play-by that has dark hair and dark eyes.


Agnes Binns
56 (1832) | Gryffindor | Middle Class | Any Blood
Any Profession
Zachariah's mother is an open book. She could even be attached to an existing, playable family. The only requirement is that she's a Gryffindor, and that she likes to send her son a lot of letters. Sometimes, she even just shows up at the shop with food and tea, convinced that he hasn't been eating.
Play-by that has dark hair and light eyes.


Hugo Binns
38 (1850) | Gryffindor | Upper Middle Class | Halfblood
Any Lucrative Profession
Zachariah and Hugo don't always see eye-to-eye. Hugo has a somewhat dominating personality, while Zachariah is a bit more welcoming and open. Hugo often scoffs at his brother's "achievements," and he seems to engage in a one-sided competition about who is doing better. He has moved up in the ranks, and is on the cusp of moving up a class due to either his profession and/or business ventures. He doesn't understand having passion for his line of work, for he's more concentrated on the money and power output. He's a somewhat domineering father who shows his love in strange ways. He tends to treat his little sister like a child.
Play-by that has dark hair and light or dark eyes.


Rosie Binns
36 (1852) | Any House | Upper Middle Class | Any Blood
Any Profession
Rosie is the opposite of Hugo. She is gentle and cares very little for money. They are an interesting pair. It is open to the player whether or not the marriage was arranged, or if it is a happy one. She is a great mother.
Play-by that has any hair and any eyes.
Reserved for Kelly!


Albin Binns
16 (1872) | Gryffindor | Upper Middle Class | Halfblood
Sixth Year
Albin is the most like Hugo. He's a very strong personality, and it's likely that he either plays on his house quidditch team, or he's heavily involved in quodpot. While he has many friends, he isn't the nicest of boys. He's pretty average academically.
Play-by that has any hair and any eyes.


Isolda Binns
14 (1874) | Any House | Upper Middle Class | Halfblood
Fourth Year
Isolda is very open. She's most likely a lot like her mother, or a nice blend between her and her father. She has middle child syndrome and desperately wants to set herself apart from the others. How? That is up to you as the player!
Play-by that has any hair and any eyes.


*****Emma Binns
12 (1876) | Ravenclaw | Upper Middle Class | Halfblood
Second Year
Emma is the most like Zachariah. She practically grew up in the Hogsmeade shop. She was always about when she was young, just as excited as her uncle about everything literary. She's an excellent student. The two likely write letters to one another, and Zachariah probably sends her something new to read every few weeks. Her father dislikes the fact the two are close.
Play-by that has any hair and any eyes.


Juliana Binns
26 (1862) | Gryffindor | Middle Class | Halfblood
Any Profession
Zachariah and Juliana are very close. He taught her how to read, and he treats her like an adult while their brother still deals with her as if she's a child. She is extremely patient with Hugo and can often get him to change him mind, somehow, with her charm. Juliana got the best of both worlds, intelligence and bravery. She is a very independent minded woman and likely has a career to reflect that.
Play-by that has dark hair and light or dark eyes.

So, Angharad 2.0 (no longer being a MacWard) has basically the same story arch as before, but was taken in by another MC Hebridean family on the opposite side of the island. After the husband rescued her from a dragon she was trying to take the rabbit she caught back from, this family discovered she was living with a corpse and an owl, and took her in, pretty much against her will. She replayed them by resigning to their presence after many failed attempts at running away, never actually calling them by their names and generally being very difficult in the face of their kindness. They have just sent her off to Hogwarts for her first (possibly only?) term, but I'm requesting them anyhow if there are any takers. The family surname is North and the children's names, by order of age (oldest to youngest) are Michael, Dominic, Phoebe and Shane.

The Chail (@Victor North)
[Image: hwkgno.jpg]
Age:39
PB: open (pb: Nathan Parsons)
Relationship to Angharad: Her guardian and replacement father, so to speak. She calls him the chail, which means "the man". However, she does like him more than she likes his wife because he takes her hunting sometimes and is almost always patient with her. When she runs away, he's always the one to go out and track her down.

Occupation: Healer In Charge for Creature-Based Injuries at St. Mungo's

The Hen
[Image: 34ovec2.jpg]
Age: 28-32
PB: open (suggested pb is Deborah Ann Woll)
Relationship to Angharad: Her guardian and replacement mother, although Angharad doesn't see her that way in any stretch of the imagination. She is generally quite caring towards Angharad, but overwhelmed by her defiance and rough behavior. Angharad calls her the Hen, which means "the woman", but thinks it's particularly fitting because she's always clucking at her about one thing or another (trying to get her to be more proper and studious so she has a future). She is closer to her own four children, but does her best with her ward as well as she copes with a rural, Scottish life after having grown up in wizarding London.
Birthplace: London

Shane North

Bertram Blackwood // 63 // Married //Ravenclaw or Gryffindor // Medium Priority
Bertram (UCPB) is intelligent, witty and a shrewd business man.  He is modern by Victorian standards, and see invention as the highest form of human endeavor.  He is independently wealthy but considers himself something of a Quidditch entrepreneur and intends to innovate in the area of the Quidditch.  He encourages both of his children in their public lives.  
[Image: julianne-moore-mockingjay-alh-091313.jpg]
Eugenia Blackwood (Nee - OPEN) // 45 // Married //Not Gryffindor // Medium Priority
Eugenia (UCPB) is much more 'typical' than her husband and wishes he was a bit more conventional.  She is determined for Ginny and Bertram jnr to marry purebloods, even if she doesnt hate halfbloods, she would just prefer her children kept with tradition.  However, Eugenia is from a fairly blood purist family, but her attitudes have been tempered by her husbands more liberal views.  

[Image: domhnall-gleeson.jpg]
Bertram Blackwood Jnr // 27-34 // single/hurlable //Gryffindor  or Slyhterin//  High Priority
Bertram jnr (UCPB) is a social and affable young man, like his sister he is popular in society in the most appropriate way.  He considers himself something of a catch and is holding out for the best possible match for himself, and he has high expectations of the women he surrounds himself with.  He was/is an exceptional flyer and perhaps spent a year or two after Hogwarts playing professional quidditch.  His blood purity views are up to the player

Benevolences Wanteds

Connections include: @Benevolence Montague  -owner of Montagues House of Flowers, herbologist and flower breeder.  

[Image: 29853215484_665d484eb8.jpg]
Hugo (open) Capulet // 52 // Widower //Slytherin/Ravenclaw //  High Priority
Hugo (MCAB) is the widower of her Aunt (Mothers side), her Aunt passed away a few years ago shortly after Ben's parents.  He believes that the Montague business should have passed to him as the next living male rather than Ben, who he believes to be too stupid to run a business.  He isn't cruel, just very old fashioned and traditional.  He isn't exactly a plant fan but believes he has the brains to succeed in it.  He may or may not have children.  

Meserimus Wanteds

Connections include: @Meserimus Valenduris  -Potions Master and former Slytherin Hoh

[Image: 33674221386_8f7d61938b.jpg]
Eustace Valenduris // 130 // Married //Slytherin/Ravenclaw //  High Priority

Eustace (UCPB)  is the youngest brother of Meserimus and Archimedes Valenduris.  He is as intelligent as his brothers  but is very much treated as a baby by the two older men.  Eustace, like Meserimus, has a large family of about 10 children.  Ideally he would be another Hogwarts professor, or working in some sort of ministry research role.  His forte is not potions, which he adamantly avoided, because Meserimus was an obnoxious know it all about the subject growing up.  He is as cheerful and puckish as Meserimus and despite the slight academic competitive streak between the brothers they are friendly and get on well together.

[Image: 2874029616_179fa6e731_b.jpg]
Archimedes  Valenduris // 135 // Single/widower //Slytherin/Ravenclaw //  High Priority

Archimedes Valenduris (UCPB) was the middle child of the Valenduris family and ALWAYS felt it.  He had a great desire to prove himself and dedicated himself to transfiguration.  He was determined to find a way for wizards to retain the power of speech while in animagus form.  He performed a lot of experimental transfiguration and got stuck as an owl.  He can speak but can no longer use magic and neither he, nor the ministry have worked out how to change him back.   He has been stuck as an owl for circa 60 years.  He currently lives with Meserimus in the school but HATES children.  He is not as good humoured as his brothers.  
He may have been married at one time, but his wife either left him or died.  He may have children but a more modest number (no more than 3)

[Image: 308248469_5693075c49.jpg]
Isadora Valenduris // circa 26 // Married // Durmstrang //  High Priority

Isadora (UCAB) was never a typical girl.  She is intelligent and would be highly reminiscent of Luna Lovegood.  She was attracted to the intelligence of Meserimus despite him being her teacher and much older than her.  They danced together for the first time at her coming out ball, and were engaged within a few months, and married shortly thereafter. She loves her husband, and he adores her.  She is given a great deal of independence, and while she does not have a 'job' she may have her own enterprise at home, for her own amusement.  

Meserimus has LOADS of kids and has been married 3 times - so could offer a family to a UCPB from the age of 80-3

For Elladora Black
@Elladora Black | @Phineas Black | @Ursula Black

IOLA HITCHINS NEE BLACK

b. 1857 | MCPB | Slytherin | Journalist | Suggested PB: Elisabeth Moss

The youngest of the current generation of Blacks, Iola is the younger sister of Phineas and Elladora Black and is generally regarded by both of them as a disgrace after she eloped with a muggle and wilfully fell to the middle class in 1882. She is a free-spirited woman compared to her siblings and became a writer for the Daily Prophet after she married where she writes quite progressive articles under an assumed name. Her personality is largely open, as is her relationship with her husband though it can be assumed they married for love, and I would prefer her to have at least one child. She is also the only other person in the world who knows what happened to the illegitimate child Ursula gave birth to in 1881 and one of the few things she and Elladora always agree upon was that Ursula was not good enough for their brother. Whether this has changed with time and her own marriage is up to you!

For Minnie Pendergast
@Emma Macmillan | @Minnie Pendergast

WALTER PENDERGAST

b. 1867 | UCPB | Open House | Open Profession | Suggested PB: Louis Tomlinson

Walter is the first born son of Reuben and Atalanta Pendergast and will one day inherit his father's fortune upon certain requirements being met. Namely that he does not marry anything less than another UCPB - if he does then he will lose the whole lot and Samuel will inherit instead. For this reason, and many others, the two brothers do not get on. When he attended Hogwarts he was in any house though personally I would prefer Gryffindor or Hufflepuff and he is a good-natured and loving whose mother and sisters have frequently worried that his heart might lead him astray. He can work if preferred but his father did not allow him to play Quidditch at school so he is unlikely to be a pro player. Otherwise Walter is largely open and ready to make terrible mistakes!

SAMUEL PENDERGAST

b. 1870 | UCPB | Slytheclaw | Open Profession | Suggested PB: Dylan O'Brien

Samuel Pendergast is the second son and final child of this branch of Pendergasts and is or was a Hogwarts student either in Ravenclaw or Slytherin. As the "spare" he inherits comparatively little and Samuel has resented his brother for this every day of their lives since he can remember. His sisters and mother he cares for in a distant way, but he loves no one in the family and is interested entirely in his own prospects, though he craves his father’s approval. He plans to have a notable career post-Hogwarts and models himself more on the prestige of his late uncle Philip and aunt Olivia rather than his more laissez-faire side of the family. If there are prefect/head boy spots free I would recommend he had them or else he is bitterly angry that he was overlooked.

THAT'S IT, THAT'S THE AD

Jk: #20s, #WCAB/MCAB, #opengender, #openrace, #soopen.

The assistant should be earnest and a little too cheerful to Get sarcasm.
I need them in my life.

Julian Aramis Fisk
[Image: tumblr_npdyhnnlRG1tk22j8o4_500.gif]
#MCHB | #30S | # HURLABLE #BIGPLAYEDFAM

Born in 1853, Julian is the second-eldest of the Fisk kids. A former cursebreaker, Julian had to stop that once he lost a leg in 1882. Now he has a #VEprosthetic,  and writes adventure novels as a career. A cheerful, clever, but not particularly responsible dude.

Probably this is why he is one of the world's worst chaperons to Zelda; used to his sister being responsible, Julian would go with her to events, get drunk, and more or less abandon her until it was time to go home. Although this was, mostly, fine, it did backfire when Zelda went off to cavort with J. Alfred Darrow. Whoops!
Also worth noting: Fisks are ethnically Jewish, mostly but not entirely secular religiously.
Pictured is Richard Rankin, with alternatives to be age-appropriate and brunette or red-haired.

Leonid Jean Fisk
[Image: 071005d1e974fecbd23a8783077b358e.gif]

" Xena's twin, Leonid's middle name comes from Les Mis." Born in 1861, Leonid's method of dissappointing his father was failing some NEWT exams, so now he's a hit wizard. Awkward!
Also worth noting: Fisks are ethnically Jewish, mostly but not entirely secular religiously. Pictured is Oliver Jackson-Cohen, alternatives to be age-appropriate and brunette or red-haired.

Dorian Gareth Fisk: Nicknamed "Dory," Dory was born in 1864 and now works in the Ministry in some capacity. More or less an open slate. Was a constant playmate of Nemo and Zelda in childhood. Ethnically Jewish, and probably mostly secular religiously.

Some format shamelessly lifted from Bee.

Contact me [here] to declare your intentions.

01 | Fortune favors the bold. Ask. Ask for plots, ask about the things you want to see happen – hell, ask about the weather if you like. Worst I'll say is "nah," and more likely I'll say "what about [similar elements to your request] instead?".
02 | I'm generally not married to face claims and try to leave most details open while still giving a solid framework. If characters are of a certain ethnicity, I prefer face claims share that ethnicity; if they're from a certain place, I prefer face claims also share that region in common.
03 | Writer's block? Bored with your character? You can relinquish them the traditional way. Or, you can kill one (1) character* per adoptable family of mine without prior discussion. Make me laugh. Make me cry.

* Characters whom have an asterik by their name are characters I hope to see some sort of story arc with. Please make me laugh and cry other ways first, unless it’s...
** Two stars mean ‘story arc’ = ‘they die’. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


THE FAMILIES

Worldly & Working Class
The Koches
Working Class Muggleborns
@Armel Koch

Want a peek at the current timeline? Documents aren’t necessary to read; timeline, however, will probably help.

The Koches are a family who, as per their origins, do not traditionally practice surnames. Those who have adapted surnames have usually done so to engage in Western societies. Originating from the Anatolian Steppes, they are mixed heritage and (technically) mixed religion. The mother (anne), Verda, is Sephardic Jewish (but did not practice openly) and looks the most like Ahmet. The father (baba), Raif, is Turkish from an Alevis (regional, multicultural form of Islam) family. As per their level of observance, think ‘spiritual’ versus ‘devout’.

Level of religious observance is at player’s discretion.

Most of the family available for play are witches, though I’m happy to discuss extended family and late bloomers as well.

Classes and magical proficiencies are also at player’s discretion, with general guidelines/ideas provided.
