    #1
    In Character
    Full Name: Rupert Walter Bingham
    Nicknames: Ru
    Birthdate: May 23, 1871
    Current Age: 13 Years
    Occupation: Student
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: 12”, swishy, laurel, sea serpent scale
    Blood Status: Pure
    Social Class: Upper
    Family:
    Walter Bingham, Father [1822-1875]
    Scarlett Bulstrode, Mother [1854]
    Rose Bingham, Sister [1873]

    Irving Bulstrode, Step-father[1849]
    Appearance:
    Ru is a long and lanky boy with a slim build and a height of five feet, six inches. He will more than likely reach the height of five feet, eleven inches when he stops growing. He has a very wan complexion which is all the more accentuated by his black hair and and dark brown eyes. He dresses in the typical clothing of an upper class teenager with a fondness for darker colors. He was born left handed but as is typical, was trained to be right handed. This has caused him to be rather ambidextrous.
    History:
    1871: Rupert Walter Bingham is born.

    1872: Family drama. Rupert is a baby and doesn’t care about it all.

    1873: A sister, Rose, is born. Rupert doesn’t care much.

    1875: Ruperts father dies. He gets cranky about it because the man had never delivered on the promise of getting him a new toy broom before doing so. Rupert finds this very inconsiderate of the man.

    1876: First signs of magic appear when he vanishes the toys of a boy his age that he disliked but was made to play with.

    1879: Ruperts mother remarries. This hardly affects the boy though he thinks the man rather boring.

    1882: Hogwarts time! Rupert is sorted into Ravenclaw. He sees the adoration that Quidditch players get and decided then and there that he will become one. He fails tryouts for a seeker. He decides to get better at Quidditch by being an active member in Flying and Quidditch Club.

    1883-1884: His second year passes without any remarkable events happening. He once again tries out for the team but does not succeed.

    1884: A plague occurs and he is happy to be out of the quarantine zone. He can’t bring himself to care about the epidemic much past that. His third year arrives. He chooses Arithmancy and Ancient Runes as his electives. He still has yet to make the team but has been told his skill has only gotten better. Next year, he is sure he will make it.
    Personality:
