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

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
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.

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 Atticus

XAVIER SHARPE
[Image: EyZmarH.jpg]
B. 1860 | WCM | MUGGLE ED. | FOOTMAN
The youngest of the Sharpe children, born in 1860. Xavier has lived the most conventionally muggle life of the three of them thus far, finding a position in his early twenties as a footman in an upper class household. When the family, however, had to move to America for business purposes, he was reluctant to go with them, and instead—with his brother’s help—found work doing the same in a mixed magical/muggle household in Irvingly. He keeps a small cottage in Dovecote for himself and is able to walk to work each day, and relishes the fact that he gets to live close to his brother and sister. The suggested PB is Chadwick Boseman.

Immediate Ties: Atticus Sharpe Annalise Tisher

BELLADONNA TISHER
[Image: D94Ifsw.jpg?1]
B. 1853 | WCMB | HUFFLEPUFF | INFIRMARY NURSE
The eldest of Atticus’ younger siblings, Belladonna shocked everyone when it was revealed that she was a witch, and she spent her time at Hogwarts in Hufflepuff. In 1873, she married a wizard she met whilst in school, and went on to deliver him three healthy children before he was convicted of defiling a house elf in 1883. Though he was sent to prison, she contacted her brother and got the hell out of there, lest he try to play house again upon his release. Today, she helps her brother to run the inn and works as a nurse at the Irvingly Infirmary. She is very respectful of muggle sensibilities, and seldom uses magic when her brother is present, even though he’s said he does not mind. Her reputation is 8. The suggested PB is Lupita Nyong’o with alternatives to be of African descent. Reserved for Bee!

Bonus Ties: Temperance Fairchild Miriam Trelawney Eula Bonham

JESSAMINE “JESSA” TISHER
[Image: i1wcVLP.jpg?1]
B. 1875 | WCHB | ANY | SECOND YEAR (‘88)
Belladonna's oldest child, Jessa finished her first year at Hogwarts only to be unable to return for a second due to ambiguity where her father's parents are concerned. She was able to return after the Christmas holidays, but required to do the second half of her first year over again! Of her siblings, she is the only one to know that her father was sent to prison for lewdness—and the only one to know that her mother is actively hiding from him. She has a sensible head on her shoulders, and her uncle hopes that will stick around into her teenaged years (but one never knows). The suggested PB is Storm Reid. She is mixed race, with a black mother and a white father.

Immediate Ties: Atticus Sharpe Annalise Tisher
Potential Ties: Sisse Thompsett Sloane Bixby Madeline Bell Alcyone Slughorn Camille Scrimgeour Calla Potts Luce Faucher-De Loncrey Holly Scrimgeour

MONTGOMERY “MONTY” TISHER
[Image: xWCqL5R.jpg?1]
B. 1880 | WCHB | ANY | CHILD
Rowdy and curious, Monty was named for his grandfather—though the pair are incredibly dissimilar. He doesn’t really remember his father and instead sees Atticus in that role. The suggested PB is Lonnie Chavis. He is mixed race, with a black mother and a white father.

Immediate Ties: Atticus Sharpe Annalise Tisher

For Castor

POLLUX ALLAWAY
[Image: 8pfZLfG.jpg?1]
B. 1868 | MCM | MUGGLE ED. | TUTOR
Castor’s identical twin, though was fortunate enough to miss out on the smallpox thing. Though he did attend some university, he came home when his father took ill and stayed when their mother and sister left, unwilling to leave his twin behind (even though he had felt rather abandoned when Castor went off to Hogwarts). Until he sorts out his life, he’s found work as a tutor for a middle/upper class family in the village. PB is Alfred Enoch.

Immediate Ties: Castor Allaway, Henrietta Davis

For Desdemona

ISABELLA “ISSIE” DARROW née COLLINS
[Image: 0eMdmic.jpg?1]
B. 1858 | MCHB | NOT SLYTHERIN | WIFE
The eldest and ostensibly most beautiful of the Collins sisters, Issie has a mild manner and a kind heart. Couple that with her looks and she had no shortage of suiters, but she had already given her heart to ----- Porter. Unfortunately, given that he was of age with her, he was deemed an unsuitable match by her father when he approached Huxley, and so ultimately, Isabella was pressured to marry Mr. Jones instead. Her husband is not cruel, but she has never loved him and instead pines after what could have been. That Cordy married her former love was a huge blow to their relationship, though Cordy does not actually know this which makes it more awkward. The suggested PB is Gal Gadot with alternatives to have dark hair. Reputation of 9 or 10. Are the twins her husband’s? Reserved for Miri

Immediate Ties: Desdemona Pettigrew Cordelia Porter
Bonus Ties: Arthur Pettigrew

CRESSIDA “SISSY” COLLINS
[Image: Z57kXKC.jpg?1]
B. 1866 | MCHB | RAVENDOR | UNSPEAKABLE
The youngest of the Collins sisters, Sissy went straight to the Ministry after Hogwarts, proclaiming that if there was a man out there for her, she’d probably meet him in the Department of Mysteries anyways. A driven young lady with a sharp intellect and lust for knowledge, Sissy was always considered a bit peculiar by her peers—and her sisters—but pays that fact no mind. The suggested PB is Troian Bellisario with alternatives to have dark hair. Reputation of 7. Reserved for Suzie

Immediate Ties: Desdemona Pettigrew Cordelia Porter
Bonus Ties: Arthur Pettigrew Ernest Mulciber Marlena Scamander
Potential Ties: Other Ministry women

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 Clifford Goyle

~
For Evelyn

ELWIN ABERCROMBIE
[Image: ySAS9aP.jpg?1]
B. 1850 | UCPB | OPEN HOUSE | GENTLEMAN OF LEISURE; INVESTOR
Though their marriage was arranged, Elwin and Evelyn were fast to fall genuinely in love with one another and are, by any metric, a splendid couple: she supportive and doting, he understanding and loyal. He does worry, though, about her fragile condition, and so does everything in his power to ensure she is not upset—including keeping a few dreadfully bad investments a secret… The suggested PB is Dan Stevens. Reserved for Fallin

Immediate Ties: Evelyn Abercrombie
Bonus Ties: Pendergasts and Lestranges

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

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. Reserved for Bee

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 Hamish

RAMSAY DARROW
[Image: cgcU5hU.jpg?1]
B. 1843 | MCHB | GRYFFINPUFF | MAGICAL BUGS
Hamish’s firstborn and closest friend, it was just the two of them for several years before Hamish remarried after the loss of his wife, Morag, in childbirth. A jovial and rather intemperate fellow, he surprised everyone by not only scoring high enough OWLs and NEWTs to become a healer, but by actually doing so. Ramsay nearly died of the Laughing Plague in ’84 and took longer than most to fully recover his faculties, eventually going back to work at Hogsmeade Hospital in ’87. The suggested PB is Mark Addy.

Immediate Ties: Hamish Darrow Tessa Darrow
Bonus Ties: Annabelle Bones J. Alfred Darrow Baxter Keene Finlay Connolly Ari Fisk Killian Macmillan

ALISTAIR “ALLIE” DARROW
[Image: wpbiOr3.jpg?1]
B. FEB. 1872 | MCHB | SLYTHERPUFF | SIXTH YEAR (’88)
Hamish’s middle grandchild. Always the most serious of the Darrow brood (not saying much), he was, of the whole family, the most shaken by Ramsay’s prolonged illness. He is still a bit surly towards his friends as a result, but tries to still put on a good face for the family so they won’t worry. Allie only calls Roy “Uncle” when he’s being snide. He is exceptionally thin and angular and would probably make for a good seeker or keeper because long limbs. The suggested PB is Wyatt Oleff.

Immediate Ties: Hamish Darrow Tessa Darrow
Bonus Ties: J. Alfred Darrow

GILDEROY “ROY” DARROW
[Image: Ad4DPMz.jpg?1]
B. JUNE 1872 | MCHB | NOT SLYTHERIN | SIXTH YEAR (’88)
Hamish’s youngest child. Roy has always idolized his brother Mercutio, and wants to be an auror too someday…though can’t reconcile that with his frequent desire to make mischief. He does his best to get along with everyone, but often quarrels with his older nephew Allie. The suggested PB is Jeremy Ray.

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.

For Minerva

THEODORE NIGHTLY
[Image: 350x180]
B. 1875 | MCHB | NOT GRYFFINDOR | THIRD YEAR (’88)
Minerva’s brother, has an interesting relationship with his guardians. He doesn’t think they like him much, and he doesn’t like them much, but it’s entirely civil, and he knows that he won’t have a hard time in life if he generally does as they ask of him. That said, he loves being at Hogwarts, and is very fond of his sister.

Immediate Ties: Minerva Nightly
Potential Ties: Arthur Price Elijah Urquart

LENNY NIGHTLY
[Image: 350x180]
B. 1877 | MCHB | OPEN HOUSE | INCOMING/FIRST YEAR (’88)
The youngest of the Nightly children, Benevolence “Lenny” Nightly is something of a wild card. While she has a habit of acting out, she is generally smart in doing so, often stepping over the line but never wandering off in a bad direction. Though she loves her sister dearly, she wishes Minerva were a bit bolder. Lenny would love to play quidditch, but neither her grandparents nor Aunt Lydia will ever sign off on it.

Immediate Ties: Minerva Nightly
Potential Ties: All first years

“AUNT LYDIA”
[Image: cnPFMTq.jpg?1]
B. 1823-1853 | MCAB | OPEN HOUSE | MATRON OF ST MUNGO’S HOME FOR INCONVENEINT CHILDREN
“Aunt” to many but aunt to none, Lydia — never married, and worked for some years as a governess before taking on the role of matron at St Mungo’s Home for Inconvenient Children. She is devoted to the well-being of her charges, but her idea of what that is does not always line up with theirs. A devotee of the Church of Magical Jesus, Lydia has long since incorporated religion into the daily lives of the children under her protection—as is only right! She values honesty, charity, obedience, and propriety over all else, though has her warm moments (albeit few and far between). The suggested PB is Phyllis Logan with alternatives to be age appropriate!

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.

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.

Current as of 7/15/18.
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
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.

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.

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).

Henry Thompsett
MCHB | Incoming 1st Year | b. 1877

The youngest Thompsett child, Henry was born in 1877. He is especially close with his older sister as the two are so close in age and were left much on their own when Matthew went to school. He is excited to attend Hogwarts with his siblings in 1888. His personality is largely up to whomever plays him as is his house. If you are looking for a wee little firsty to start your 1888-1889 school year off, Henry is the boy for you.

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.

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.

Middle Class Halfbloods
Elsie Beauregard, Adella Calendar, Harvey Beauregard,
Lucinda Cavanaugh & Leah Beauregard

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 Lynch', 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" published in the Daily Prophet in connection to a very handsome auror... 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 (though they've slowed lately!) have showed the change more viscerally. What she thinks Febs is up to and what she wants to about it are open for the drama-llama of it all. She may have connections via her maiden name, but I'm not sure they exist anymore, I need to dig haha!


Abercrombies Ahoy!
Upper Class Purebloods
Nora Abercrombie, Evelyn Abercrombie & Elwin Abercrombie

A UCPB family with a bit of weight to them, this branch of Abercrombies is relatively laid back. They do stick to other UCPB families, but are not outwardly or annoyingly purist. They kind of just do their own thing and have some ties to other prominent UCPB families. I'm open to adding more as the family grows.


Gaston --- Abercrombie
1861 | open house | single | 9 rep
Ministry
Adrien Sahores

Gaston likely works in a more reputable department in the ministry (though is probably not in administration yet). He's nearing an age where he could start looking for a wife. His personality can go one of two ways as we see it, he's either overtly flirtatious without a lot of substance behind it or he's painfully shy and awkward, like Nora. Either way he's incredibly bright and may or may not used it to his advantage where he sees fit. Helga Scamander, one of Nora's best friends, has been eyeing him as possible suitor since her seventh year... and she's probably not subtle about it. There's plenty of amusement to be had!

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 Bella Scrimgeour
Bella Scrimgeour | Araminta Scrimgeour | Lucille Flint | Argus Scrimgeour

LAVERNA FLINT (NÉE BULSTRODE)

b. 1849 | UCPB | Slytherin | Socialite | Suggested PB: Jennifer Garner

The mother of Lucille Flint and the aunt/former guardian of Bella Scrimgeour. She was sort of ~rebellious in her childhood, though eventually gave into her parents' nagging and married Titanus Flint, a man more than half a century older than her. She gave him one child before he ultimately perished, and now lives a rather reclusive life in Dorset with her debutante daughter. Her reputation is an 8.

MEDIA SCRIMGEOUR (NÉE BULSTRODE)

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

The mother of Bella Scrimgeour/Araminta 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 disowned her daughter soon after the debacle, and moved her family back to Wales to hide from public ridicule. 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 Carius Bulstrode
Carius Bulstrode

NARCISSA BULSTRODE

b. 1876 | UCPB | Slytherin | Second Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Alina Yasheva

The sister of Carius Bulstrode and childhood bestie of Holly Scrimgeour. A social butterfly with a cheerful demeanor and a strong people-pleasing desire, she was sorted into Slytherin after begging the hat to place her there, but may worry she was better-suited for Hufflepuff. Holly's unpopularity among the other first years made the two girls grow distant during their first year, but both likely claim one another as friends. Her reaction to Carius' sorting into Gryffindor is up to the player. Her reputation is a 10.

For Hudson Podmore
Hudson Podmore | Sydney Podmore | Clinton Podmore

BEATRICE PODMORE (NÉE MOODLEY)

b. 1849 | UCHB | Uagadou | Open Occupation | Suggested PB: Naomie Harris

The wife of Hudson Podmore. Beatrice likely attended Uagadou (or was potentially homeschooled) and graduated at the usual time. The daughter of a MC merchant, she met Hudson while he temporarily stayed with their family to study a creature that was terrorizing their household—and he never seemed to leave! After her father made his disapproval of the match known, the two were forced to continue their romance in secret, but eventually married and returned to Britain in 1870. She may have a career as long as it's appropriate for her station. Her personality is up to the player. Her reputation is a 7/8.

AMBROSE PODMORE

b. 1871 | UCHB | Gryffindor | Sixth Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Keith Powers

The son of Hudson Podmore. The eldest child, Ambrose inherited his father's sense of adventure—but not his academic prowess. With him more interested in sports than his classes, Hudson constantly worries that he won't make it to his NEWTs. He decision not to take CoMC was one of rebellion, but his upbringing means that he'll likely pursue a physical career if he has one at all! His reputation is a 9.

ROXANNE PODMORE

b. 1873 | UCHB | Gryffindor | Fifth Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Yara Shahidi

The daughter of Hudson Podmore. Currently in the phase of her life where all she does it talk about boys, Roxanne has made her father paranoid to the point of where he keeps a particularly close eye on any boy she's blabbering about. She is a strong student and isn't very modest about it. Her reputation is a 9.

CHARLOTTE PODMORE

b. 1874 | UCHB | Slytherin | Fourth Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Marsai Martin

The daughter of Hudson Podmore. Charlotte wears her Slytherin status as a badge of honor and is very pleased not to have her father as her head of house. She is far more bookish and altogether in a world of her own, caring very little about marriage and what lies beyond the foreseeable future. She is very inclined towards left-wing political activism and wants to reduce British xenophobia. Her reputation is a 9.

ARIC PODMORE

b. 1877 | UCHB | Open House | First Year ('88) | Suggested PB: Tyree Brown

The son of Hudson Podmore. The youngest child, Aric has always been a little insecure—he's not as athletic as Ambrose, intelligent as Roxanne, nor as ambitious as Charlotte. He's unsure of what he wants from life, but is just glad he'll get to spend more time with his father while at school. His reputation is a 9.

For Daphne Bletchley
Daphne Bletchley

IDA BLOOM BLETCHLEY

b. 1878 | WCPB | Incoming Firstie ('89) | Lupin Laundry Maid | Suggested PB: Matia Jackett

The daughter of Daphne Bletchley. Her parents never had a healthy relationship with each other before her father's death, and though her father frequently used her safety as a source of torment for her mother, she was never physically or emotionally abused. Despite being taught to read and write by her mother, she rarely utilizes these skills and instead spends much of her time doing chores around the Lupin household. Her mother has recently begun wondering how she'll afford to send her to Hogwarts in September of 1889—and is considering extreme measures to secure the funds. Her reputation is an 8/9.

(Other potential connections include Leon Lupin, Elsbeth Lupin, Leo Lupin, and Joella Wood)

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, Nathaniel Gallivan


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.
Immediate Ties: Magdalena Byrne, Madeleine Backus, Cane Backus, Lorcan Byrne
Potential Ties: Gideon Ollivander, Quincey Honeyduke, Nathaniel Gallivan


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
Immediate Ties: Magdalena Byrne, Madeleine Backus, Cane Backus, Lorcan Byrne

The Beasley Family
— For Raymond Beasley, Burton Beasley, Coleman Beasley & Clayton 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.
Immediate Ties: Raymond Beasley, Burton Beasley, Coleman Beasley, Clayton Beasley
Potential Ties: Anyone of OWL Level Career Path

The Brown Family
— For Monet 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.
Immediate Ties: Monet Brown & Grant Brown
Potential Ties: Eldin Bones, Germander Macnair, Goodluck Warbeck,


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.
Immediate Ties: Monet Brown & Grant Brown
Potential Ties: Justice Rookwood, Harrison Vance Taggart Renshaw, Archelaus Abney, Sage Macnair, James Grey

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 & Abigail 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. 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 Either way, her focus can now fall to getting Abigail married.

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.


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.

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!

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, 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.

MARMADUKE WARBECK

B.1863 | MCHB | PB: KEIYNAN LONSDALE

Marmaduke is also - you guessed it - super open. Roughly 25, the age difference between him and Carmelina means they didn't get to spend too much of their childhoods together, but they probably wrote to each other a lot and I vaguely headcanon that he's her favourite sibling anyway. He is probably the thoughtful, sensitive, anxious sort, possibly with an artistic streak. Absolutely awful at talking to girls. You know who else he could be? Jehan from the Revs!



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 CARDINELLI

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 Cardinelli.



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. Reserved for Bubbles! :D

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.

  4. I reserve the right to refuse adoption.
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.

The Lukeson Family

KING LUKESON

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

Being named King has left this boy rather flustered on how to best live up to his name, and it doesn't help when he's the youngest son amoung his family. He is the fourth child of his parents, and always feels imaginary pressure weighing on him.

With all of the death in his family, and being under the new guardianship of his oldest brother Ace, the awkwardness is really starting to build. It probably doesn't help that he's being haunted with the memory of his brother and uncle dying in front of him.

His Hogwarts house is open, but I can't see him in Slytherin for the life of me (if you can make it work, go for it).

❧ Immediate Ties: Ace Lukeson, Sybille Lukeson, Avril Lukeson, Edgar Rey II, Fleur Rey
❧ Potential Ties: James Grey, Frida Lestrange, Darling Whitledge, Clementine Rookwood, Jemima Farley, Holliday Fudge Beatrix Borgin, Citrine Weasley, Justice Rookwood, Harrison Vance

JOLIE LUKESON

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

Second 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 deathes 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 flexable as to which family she has married into as long as they are UCPB with no known scandals.

❧ Immediate Ties: Ace Lukeson, Sybille Lukeson, Avril Lukeson, Edgar Rey II, Fleur Rey
❧ Potential Ties: Other Socialites (Mainly Purebloods with similar views)

"ALEX" ___

b. 1840 | UCPB | Open | Suggested PB: Ethan Hawke
Low Priority Character

Though he is much less judgemental 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 Bénet Family

DAMIEN BÉNET

b. 18?? | UCPB | Open | Suggested PB: Chris Pine
Medium Priority Character

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.

❧ Immediate Ties: Claire Bénet, Céleste Bénet
❧ Potential Ties: —

SARAH BÉNET NÉE BEAUMONT

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

Mother of the mischievious 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. (Please talk to Bree if you wish for Sarah to be connected to the other site Beaumont family.)

The Power Family

KIERA POWER

b. 1867 | UCPB | Debutante | Suggested PB: Melina Martin
Low Priority Character

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.

The Rey Family

HUBERT REY

b. 1850 | UC | Squib | Open | Suggested PB: Ryan Gosling
Medium Priority Character

Father of Edgar II, he is the first son and third child of his siblings. Being the older twin, he is supposed to be heir to the fortune after his father passes away, but being a squib has put a bit of a complication in that.

His mother is the only reason that he was never officially disowned, but his father does give him the cold shoulder, and continuously states that he does not consider Hubert is heir. Because of this, Hubert has gotten a job and is constantly making connections, just in case there comes a day where his father simply doesn't care what mother says anymore and cuts ties with Hubert's family completely.

Loss has been heavy in his life recently, loosing his twin, one of his nephews, and the sister that actually liked him.

BRENDA REY NÉE ___

b. 1851 | UCMB | Open (Working encouraged) | Suggested PB: Nicole Beharie
High Priority Character

Not only is she the wife of Hubert, but was also the best friend of his sister, Guinevere. Both having gone to school together, they were both in Hufflepuff. Though she's not quite as bubbly as her bestie, she is very loyal to those she cares about.

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.

❧ Immediate Ties: Edgar Rey II, Fleur Rey, Ace Lukeson, Sybille Lukeson, Avril Lukeson
❧ Potential Ties: —

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.

❧ Immediate Ties: Ace Lukeson, Sybille Lukeson, Avril Lukeson
❧ Potential Ties: Other Stuffy Rich Purebloods

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 Deties, but her husband had been so excited over the idea that she hadn't voiced her opinion on the matter. Hestia's recent facination 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

The Lyness Family

EMILY LYNESS

b. 1883 | UCHB | Half-Veela | Child | Suggested PB: Feona Zagorskaya
Medium Priority Priority Character

Adored daughter of Juniper and Andrew, Juniper considers her the favorite of her children so far. Mainly due to the fact that the young girl is the closest of her children to being an extension of herself (because they are both female). As a result, Juniper very much likes to pamper the girl, and that may go to Emily's head.

Like her mother, she tends to be attracted to shiny objects, though her fascination extends beyond jewelry at times (kleptoshiniac - a kleptomaniac that only steals shiny things, but mainly from her parents). Her parents are guessing that this is a faze.

❧ Immediate Ties: Juniper Lyness, Andrew Lyness
❧ Potential Ties: Hesper Gamp, Leo Lupin

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, Andrew Lyness

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.

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

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.

The Wood Family
WORKING CLASS ◈ HOGSMEADE
Founder — Declan Wood
Currently played — Joella Wood
Connections: Leon Lupin Elsbeth Lupin Leo Lupin August Echelon-Arnost Ava Gedge


Declan's parents were middle class childhood sweethearts. She was a muggleborn and he was an oblivious muggle. Her parents sent her off to "a lady's proper boarding school" to cover her attendance at Hogwarts. After she completed her education, she had a coming out in muggle society. It wasn't long before she and Max courted, became engaged and then wed.

It was when Rosaline was pregnant with Tabitha, the youngest of their six children, that Declan had shown his first sign of magic. Rather unfortunately, it was in front of his father. Rosaline outed herself to defend her son, not realizing the full extent of Max's fear. By the next day, she and all five children were turned out on the street. This made the family fall from middle class to working class. They settled in Hogsmeade. Luckily, Rosaline had done well in herbology at school and was able to find work at an apothecary as a gardener. It was long hours and she was forced to leave the children at home to their own devices.

In 1883, Rosaline took a job as a cook for an upper class household, as it paid better than the apothecary and the mistress of the home (Elsbeth Lupin) was kind enough to allow her daughters into the household staff as kitchen maids, tiny cleaners and the like. The Lupin and Echelon-Arnost household has lots of drama and the servants are often asked to do things far beyond their normal job duties, so this could be an interesting played dynamic! (Ex. Elsbeth is a squib masquerading as a witch and has managed to keep these hidden from society, but obviously her staff would catch on quickly since they're around her often. All household staff — yes, even the children — have taken an unbreakable vow to keep this, and any other secrets they might stumble upon, to themselves.)

They all live in a two bedroom apartment rented in Pennyworth, Hogsmeade. Each bedroom has two small beds, which means that Rosaline and Declan share one room and the girls share the other (Maxine and Cleo are in one bed, with Dolly, Joella and Tabitha in the other. Tabitha often wanders into Rosaline's bed.)


Rosaline Wood neé Jones
b. 1851 | Divorced | Single mother of 6 | Muggleborn
Cook to UC Lupin Household (Elsbeth Lupin Leon Lupin)

UPDATE: Is the BFF of Elsbeth's surrogate and disapproves of the entire thing.
Much like Molly Weasley! She's had a tough life but is scrappy enough to have been able to raise all 6 kids on her own, without financial help, losing any to hard labor or poverty induced illness. She's been concentrating on the kids and work for the longest time, but now that Declan is set in his career (pro quidditch player) and the girls are well taken care of, she's been quietly developing a relationship. (Male, female, age, class and blood status totally open!) She's very protective as a mother so I see her trying to keep this a secret. Personally, I'd love it if it were her employer, someone much younger than her or something else controversial to give the family some angst. She is great at herbology and has her own garden. She sells herbs on the side to apothecaries, potion makers and healers.

Playby: Totally open, so long as she's brunette! Pictured is Helena Bonham-Carter.



Maxine Wood
b. 1871 | Gryffindor | Halfblood
Left school after she received her OWLs and has an OWL level career. Mediwitch preferred but not necessary.


A lot like her mother. A whirlwind, hot-tempered and fiesty, with a sporty side. She enjoys quidditch and is highly competitive. Her relationship with Declan is strained, but they force themselves to get along for their family's sake. It's difficult living under one roof, but there's no longer a worry about food or shelter, or how to afford the little girls' schooling now that three of them are working. She dreams of total independence, but knows it's not likely. A romance/flirtation or three with Declan's teammates or quidditch rivals would be highly entertaining!

Playby: Totally open, so long as she's brunette with light eyes! Pictured is Alycia Debnam Carey.



Cleo Wood
b. 1874 | Ravenclaw | Seer | Halfblood
Hogwarts Student

Bookish, practical, enjoys more refined things in life. As a child, she had mild premonitions and the like but seeing as how seers don't run in the family, nothing was ever made of it. As she's hit puberty (up to player for timing), she's realizing her seer abilities. She has foreseen Tabitha's untimely death but does not know the where, when and why. This drives her crazy and she's on edge more often than not. At the moment, she's keeping her visions as secret as possible until she can learn more about them and has become obsessed with divination, tea readings and other known seers like Cassandra Trelawney.

Dolly Wood
b. 1877 | Halfblood | Twin to Joella | Squib
Scullery Maid to Lupin Household (Elsbeth Lupin Leon Lupin)


Her personality is open. Note that her twin, Joella Wood, is on the more quiet and reserved side. She turned 11 on January 15, 1888 and will not receive her Hogwarts letter. As such, her family will have to figure out what to do with her so that she can get an education of some kind and hopefully contribute. Otherwise, she's likely destined to spend the majority of her life as a maid. They live in Hogsmeade, so it's odd for her to live near Hogwarts but will never be able to see it. The mistress of the house is a squib but the household is sworn to keep it secret. Dolly will likely gravitate toward her and it is very likely that Elsbeth would take her under her wing and pamper her, dress her like a little doll and basically treat her as a spoiled pet. This will cause tension to ripple throughout the family: jealousy, distress, discomfort, etc.

Playby: should be same as '@Joella Wood'


Tabitha Wood
b. 1879 | Halfblood
Scullery Maid/Playmate to Lupin Household (Elsbeth Lupin Leon Lupin)


The family darling. Rambunctious, cheerful, playful and incredibly curious. Her curiosity gets her into trouble. She's often roped into being a playmate for Leo Lupin (4 years) and Lysander Echelon (4 years, current NPC, secret!son to August Echelon-Arnost - aka Elsbeth's brother - and Lyra Potter which means he's half-vampire), since she's the closest in age to them. She will be a temporary character, since she will die before she receives her Hogwarts letter. The when, where and why is up to the player to decide!

Playby: Totally open, so long as she's brunette with light eyes! Pictured is Brooklyn Rae Silzer.


The Lupin Family
UPPER CLASS ◈ HOGSMEADE
Founder — Elsbeth Lupin
Currently played — Leon Lupin & August Echelon-Arnost & Leo Lupin

Unknown to the public, Elsbeth and Lupin married to cover up her pregnancy — which was most definitely not Leon's doing. She'd had too much fun at the quidditch world cup in 1883 and there is a 100% chance that his father is a professional quidditch player from the french team. Elsbeth is as far from mentally stable as one can get. If you're unfamiliar with her, her daily activity list includes day-drinking, afternoon-drinking and evening-drinking, meddling in things that are none of her business, plotting, lying and cougar-ing around with working class errand boys and an often absent Leon also likes to drink but is a busy entrepreneur and travels often. He also likes to sleep around, has secretly funded Madam @'Tessa Van Patten' 's teashop front for a secret!brothel the Painted Lady and likely has actual biological children floating around the world.


Elsbeth's Lady's Maid(s)
Working Class | Sworn to secrecy by way of an unbreakable vow | Signed contract for 10 years of service with the very high pay of 10G weekly
Elsbeth has two lady's maids because she is incredibly difficult to deal with and multiple people are needed to care for her for their own sanity. Often they are given menial tasks, are accused of sleeping with a family member or Leon (could be true!). Their true personalities are open, but around Elsbeth they are required to be meek and obedient. I would love for one to be the angel on her shoulder and the other to be the devil on her other shoulder. The angel encourages her to make good decisions on her watch whilst the devil encourages her to do the opposite. Elsbeth has a thing~ for the angel, whilst the devil has a thing~ for Elsbeth. The angel, meanwhile, is oblivious to it all and has a thing~ for August! Angel taken by Nichole Pauline Woodcroft
Angel playby: Open to anyone. Devil playby: Open to anyone, so long as they aren't blonde.


Leo's Nanny
Middle Class | Sworn to secrecy by way of an unbreakable vow | Signed contract until Leo is old enough for a governess with the very high pay of 6G weekly | Nanny #7
Leo Lupin is a terror with serial killer tendencies and quite spoiled. He has been through six nannies in his young 4 years of life. Finally on nanny #7, she's been made to sign a contract to stay until Leo is old enough for a governess. She's a live-in nanny and suffers through Leo's antics on the daily. Personality, name, blood status and age are open. Bonus points if you can combo her with another wanted ad!

The Echelon & Echelon-Arnost Family
UPPER CLASS ◈ HOGSMEADE, LONDON, ELSEWHERE
Founder — Elsbeth Lupin
Currently played — Leon Lupin August Echelon-Arnost

Elsbeth's parents married for love and Merlin bless him — he hadn’t a care that she was a widow with a sprinkling of three young, bratty blonde children. It helped that that Jena was a very attractive young widow… and that she’d inherited the majority of her husband’s wealth. Their coupling produced six more children, all blonde haired and blue eyed (the Echelon genes are strong.) The family is a typical pureblood upper class family: much wealth that stems from the German side of the family (rumor has it that money was laundered from nobility hundreds of years ago, but the claim was never proven), obsessed with society's approval, a penchant for drama and a hell of a lot of dysfunction. The eldest son of the family was a criminal involved in human trafficking and then murdered Sebastian, who is Hannah Pettigrew 's father.)



Corina -- nee Echelon
b. 1851 | Pureblood | Wife to (open) & Mother to (#) of children
Child from Jena Echelon Arnost's first marriage. Has an opiate addiction and is dumber than a box of rocks.
Playby: Open to anyone blonde haired and blue eyed.




Thorben Echelon
b. 1852 | Pureblood | Open
Child from Jena Echelon Arnost's first marriage. Has had multiple young wives and mistresses, the former of which have all died in childbirth and have failed to give him an heir. He's tiring of marriage but as the eldest Echelon, needs to produce an heir.
Playby: Open to anyone blonde haired and blue eyed.




Idelle -- nee Echelon-Arnost
b. 1854 | Pureblood | Widow & Mother to (#) of children
Was Elsbeth's BFF until she was outed as a squib, has since washed her hands of her. She thinks it's ridiculous that August still caters to her and if it weren't for her own reputation, she'd have outed her as a squib years ago. She'd once had hopes that she and Elsbeth could reconcile and invited her to her wedding. Elsbeth didn't show and that hope was crushed. Outwardly, she's respectable and uptight. She's an overbearing mother (she learned from the best). It is up to the player to decide her late husband's death time/cause. Could be natural causes?! Could be murder?! Could be dark arts gone wrong?! She is obsessed with staying young and beautiful and tries all kinds of illegal potions and spells (think unicorn blood or a baby's finger for ingredients) — but first tests it on maids and other servants.
Playby: Open to anyone blonde haired and blue eyed.




Ferdinand Frederick Echelon-Arnost
b. 1858 | Pureblood | Open
Hurlable! Personality is open.
Playby: Open to anyone blonde haired and blue eyed.




Leisa Karina -- nee Echelon-Arnost
b. 1861 | Pureblood | Wife & Mother to (#) of children
Personality is pretty open. Typically the fun loving, cheerful, turn a blind-eye sort. She just wants everyone to get along.
Playby: Open to anyone blonde haired and blue eyed.

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.

August's Housekeeper
[Image: tumblr_osrb1p5sQt1w9gkvno2_540.gif]
#WCAB | #30S | #LGBT+ | #PLOTTYGOODNESS

For August Echelon-Arnost
Miss A is August's personal assistant turned housekeeper, who has been with him since he started his law practice in 1879. She runs the household staff but also completes office admin tasks, and has 2-4 years of Hogwarts schooling under her belt. She should be in her thirties - she's young for a long-term housekeeper, but started out assisting in the law office.

A is the only person in the house who knows that August's son is a half-vampire. She would very likely never reveal this because she is very loyal to both August and Lysander. A runs a tight ship, which is probably why August had a big non-reaction when he found out that she's a lesbian a few years ago.  She's super flexible and I'd love to see her. Pictured is Melanie Scrofano, but I don't really care!

Finn's Adoptables!

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.  ******

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. 


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.


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.

Addie's Adoptables

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: 2u4t2yu.jpg]
Age:39
PB: open (suggested pb is David Oakes, but I don't have my heart set on him)
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.
Birthplace: The Hebrides
Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff
Occupation: Healer In Charge for Creature-Based Injuries at St. Mungo's

TAKEN BY KELLY

The Hen (Adelina North)
[Image: 2wlx2tv.jpg]
Age: 28-32
PB: open (suggested pb is Olivia Hallinan, but, again, I don't have my heart set)
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
Hogwarts House: open
Occupation: Mother/Housewife

TAKEN BY ELAINE

Kenneth North
[Image: 2mz9ikp.jpg]
Age: 9-10 (Born 1878)
PB (suggested): Vladimir Toropov (Владимир Торопов)
Personality: As the oldest son in the North family, Kenneth is very much like his father, kind and intelligent. He is eager to start going out on hunts with his father like Angharad does, but his mother hasn't allowed it yet.
Birthplace: The Hebrides
Hogwarts House: n/a
Occupation: n/a

Dominic North
[Image: 2edb2ic.jpg]
Age: 7-8 (Born 1880)
PB (suggested): Tornike Kiriakidi (торнике кириакиди)
Personality: Open
Birthplace: The Hebrides
Hogwarts House: n/a
Occupation: n/a

Phoebe North
[Image: 37wv8.jpg]
Age: 4-5 (Born 1883)
PB (suggested): Kriskentija Jakovleva (Крискентия Яковлева)
Personality: Sweet and well-mannered, Phoebe is basically the antithesis of Angharad.
Birthplace: The Hebrides
Hogwarts House: n/a
Occupation: n/a

Shane North
[Image: o6edr9.jpg]
Age: 2-3 (Born 1885)
PB (suggested): Egor Serdjukov (Егор Сердюков)
Personality: Spirited and Energetic, Shane is Angharad's favorite North child. She's always taken whatever chance she could to steal him away and treat him as her own baby, which has caused her to rub off on him a bit (although he is still much better-mannered than she has ever been).
Birthplace: The Hebrides
Hogwarts House: n/a
Occupation: n/a

Find out more about Ginevra Blackwood - the defacto sponsor of the Appleby Arrows

[Image: sutherland-donald-image.jpg]
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 //  Medium 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

Maddie has moved out of her family home and is now living in Bartonberg, and living with a middle class Russian family.  Her inheritance is common knowledge.

Stunning Stannards
The Stannard family are a generally well off group, being MCHB. Though mostly of good reputation, it would be known that their daughter, Octavia, got pregnant and is now living in Pennyworth with the baby. It wouldn't really be known that secretly, Horace and Jane send Octavia money and allow for general maternal family for Mara. None of them have set faceclaims, as I will not be using one for Mara, but auburn to dark hair would be nice. PM me for questions or if you'd want to adopt one of them. So here they are!
Willing to pick up one of your adoptables/plottables/other wanteds if you make any of mine.


Octavia Stannard(Mara's mother)
Born 1860, WCHB, possibly hurlable(?), rep. 4
Octavia is a black sheep of her family, though maintains a good reputations with most of them. At the age of 19-20, she fell in love with the young Mr. Aves, who she will no longer speak about, other than to her daughter. She tells of kindness, and gentleness, but otherwise why Octavia fell in love with Mr. Aves(and if that's his real name or she's covering for him) could be up to you. Potential plots for her include: Anyone who her daughter matchmakes her with, other workers at Gladrags Wizardwear, and perhaps finally getting over her pride and accepting more of her family's help than she has been!

UPDATE: I have several plotting ideas, including Mara sending in a Lonely Heart for her mother. Would love to see her around, especially so Mara can have more interactions!

Horace Stannard(Mara's grandfather)
Born 1834, MCHB, lawyer, rep. 9(negotiable)
All his life Horace retained a rather respectable reputation, with a focus on his career and eventually dreaming of being a department head always keeping him on the straight and narrow. Naturally, when his oldest daughter told him of her pregnancy, he was outraged and disowned her, but was later feeling kinder and decided on only partially disowning her. Why his mind changed is up to you, but he genuinely likes Mara, and she thinks he's pretty neat too. Potential plots for him include: Ministry ambitions(maybe he finally reaches his goal?), family matters(deciding whether or not to cut ties for good), and overall magical lawyer cases. Is he a criminal lawyer, or does he just defend the ministry against lawsuits.

Jane Stannard(Mara's grandmother)
Born 1840, MCHB, occasionally a chaperon, rep. 9(negotiable)
Jane is an average lady who enjoys Witch Weekly quite a lot, and occasionally chaperons young ones on their excursions. It's very possible that she has connections in Upper Class families that make her prone to hearing more gossip, though she's heard her share about her own family. Jane would have taken more pity on her daughter than Horace(who doesn't like a good underdog story? Plus, the baby was cute, and her first grandchild!) so maybe she would have spoken some sense into her husband. Potential plots for her include: being known as a gossip, making sure that she chaperons a certain a party or event, or using some connections to get spouses for her children.

Jack Stannard(Mara's uncle)
Born 1864, MCHB, hurlable muggle liaison employee, rep. 9(negotiable)
Jack was an alright student with a passion for learning more about muggles. And so he became a muggle liaison employee. As of now, Jack is still looking for a woman to marry, though he doesn't believe he's very attractive. Potential plots for him include: hurls, muggle situations, dealing with purebloods(both explaining and attempting to dispell their purity notions) and getting into misc. trouble.

Abigail Stannard(Mara's aunt)
Born 1872, MCHB, hurlable Hogwarts 6th year, rep. 9(negotiable)
The youngest of Mara's maternal family, a current 6th year at Hogwarts(so could be a potential prefect) Abby still lives with her parents most of the time, and listens to them too, so she doesn't really care about the whole Octavia situation unless classmates ask. She's mostly independent, though she could be any house. Potential plots for her include: various classwork, school drama, hurling, and more.

The Mysterious Mr. Aves.
Born ????, ACAB, any job, any rep.
Mr. Aves* is the man who romanced a younger Octavia Stannard and left her. My ideal reasons for leaving are either job-related(maybe he goes out to America and he didn't even know Octavia was pregnant? maybe he wants to be Minister one day and a bastard/hasty elopement wouldn't have helped?) or more personal reasons(already married w/ or w/o kids, family business pulled him away). I see him mostly as knowing of Mara, but choosing to ignore her. I'd love it if he was played, just to know that Mara's father is out there. He could decide to contact her again, or he could just leave it be.
*possibly not his real name
