    Appearance: Nemo shares the family’s brown hair and greyish tint to his green eyes. He is relatively tall, standing at 5’10”, though is very lanky and gangly, something he’s been self conscious about ever since he started towering over people. Nemo often hunches because he is trying to fit in. He thinks his face is very angular and childish, though he has filled out through the years. He still considers himself to look very young and often gets mistaken for still being in school. He dresses appropriately, but comfortably for work at the ministry and is right-handed.

    February 19th, 1866 | Nemo Cheshire Fisk is born the ninth child to Brannon and Delia fisk. Delia is reading Alice in Wonderland at the time and therefore Nemo’s middle name is derived from the story. Katia joins Ari and Julian at school.

    1868 | Zelda Ophelia joins the family as the tenth and final Fisk child. Young Nemo is automatically attached to his sister and very protective, if quietly so. Konstantin goes to school.

    1869 | Ari graduates and beings an internship at St. Mungos in London.

    1870 | Marlena heads off to school and is sorted into Gryffindor.

    1871 | Julian graduates and becomes a cursebreaker. Nemo displays his first sign of magic by automatically fixing a vase he knocked over while playing with his siblings.

    1872 | Xena and Leonid go off to Hogwarts and are sorted into Hufflepuff.

    1873 | On a canoeing adventure with Zee and Dory on a nearby pond, the youngsters capsize their purloined vessel, though Zelda’s first display of magic lands them all safely on shore.

    1874 | Katia marries William Meadowes.

    1875 | Konstantin graduates and joins the Ministry of Magic. Dory goes to school, leaving Nemo and Zelda in an unwelcome lurch and Katia welcomes her first child, Edgar.

    1876 | Katia has her second child, Richard.

    School Year 1877-78 | Marlena graduates in May of '77 and quickly announces her engagement to Justin Ross. {Contrary to every other Fisk app, but I’m correct on the year} Nemo finally heads off to school in September, leaving behind a devastated Zelda. He too feels horrible about leaving and is quietly sorted into Hufflepuff. Marlena and Justin marry in December.

    School Year 1878-79 | Marlena delivers a son, Idris. Nemo proves to be a natural student and finds himself rather at home in Hufflepuff, even if he is a bit more reserved than some of his housemates. He does manage to make a few friends in more than just Hufflepuff, though keeps his social circle rather small, unlike Zelda. In April of ‘79 Katia has her first daughter, Lydia. Xena and Leonid graduate.

    School Year 1879-80 | Xena announces her engagement. Zelda is the last Fisk to go to school and Nemo is immensely pleased to see she is sorted into Hufflepuff with him. Nemo beings taking Ancient Runes, Muggle Studies and Care of Magical Creatures for his electives.

    School Year 1880-81 | Xena’s engagement falls through and a rift forms between Xena and Katia. Nemo is torn because he hates to see his siblings at odds, but can also see both sides. He very wisely keeps all of this to himself though and chooses not to comment on Zelda’s views of the whole debacle.

    School Year 1881-82 | Dory graduates in May. Julian loses his leg in an accident at work, so he moves to Hogsmeade and starts his career as a novelist. Nemo has always found Julian’s stories to be quite entertaining, though as always, is quiet in his enthusiasm.

    Nemo takes his OWLs:

    School Year 1882-83 | Nemo decides to drop History of Magic, Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions. Katia has another daughter named Penelope. Nemo starts to harbor a crush on a girl a year below him, but he doesn’t breathe a word to anybody, lest his sisters get any ideas. Of course, he does not act upon it, though makes an effort to see if he can run into her on Hogsmeade weekends.

    School Year 1883-84 | Katia has another girl, Delia in '84. Graduation is upon Nemo in May and he has no idea what he wants to do with his life. As a rather unassuming person, he knows he could never do anything like Julian, though briefly considered a job in healing, figures dropping potions in his fifth year did not help him there. With his best grades coming from some of his electives, Nemo decides to join the Ministry in the Muggle Liaison office.


    Tragedy strikes in July when his mother contracts and passes away from the laughing plague. Shocked through and through, Nemo takes the loss of his mother particularly hard though nobody would know by looking at him. Over the years he’s become very good at keeping his emotions in check and very much to himself, though he is there fore his siblings, especially Zelda.

    Currently | Nemo is bopping around Hogsmeade quiet and as unassuming as ever, just doing his job and generally being adorable. He still tries to see if he can’t catch a glimpse of his crush on Hogsmeade days, but is very subtle about it.
    /Fisks, I love you all, but cross-referencing all of your apps was a b!tch, sorry if I missed any details!

    Personality: Quiet; self-conscious; responsible; humble; unassuming; good with people; even-tempered; shy; animated when around people he's comfortable with; enjoys reading; a little clumsy; little confidence in himself; protective; good friend; good listener. IE almost opposite of Zelda, which is why they get along.
