    Gautier Michaud, Father
    Dominique Michaud, Mother
    Diodore Michaud, Brother, 1841-1884
    --Florentine Micaud nee Lastname, Sister-in-law, 1846-1887
    ---Tristan Michaud, Nephew, 1870-

    Selene, barn owl, gift from Ozias Lovegood
    --received February 1, 1885
    Jac stands at an average five feet, seven inches and has a mildly lean build. Due to his heritage his complexion is quite pale, giving the impression that Jac is either exhausted or the sickly sort. His wand hand is his right hand. Jac always dresses in what is considered fashionable for the middle class. He has dark hair and blue eyes.
    1861: Jacques is born the second son of Gautier and Dominique Michaud in France.
    1866: First signs of magic.
    1868: Diodore marries some woman that Jac decides he immensely dislikes.
    1870: Diodore and his wife have a son named Tristan. The babe isn’t overly interesting but Jacques gets a kick out of spoiling the baby because it seems to piss Florentine off.
    1873: Jacques goes off to Beauxbatons.
    1877: At the age of sixteen, Jacques comes to fully realize that females hold no sexual interest for him. But the males do. This same year, he has his first discreet affair that ends quickly due to Jacques finding his lover to be quite dull in bed.
    1879: Jacques brother, along with Florentine and Tristan, move to Wales.
    1881: Jacques graduates from Beauxbatons and works for the local Ministry for a bit.
    1882: Jacques almost ends up in a scandal with one of his coworkers. It gets covered up by the other mans well-to-do family but this is enough to make the Michauds decide to move to Wales.
    1883: After being kind of all ‘ugh, this country’ and basically moping around, Jacques decides to make the best of it by acquiring employment in the British Ministry as a Translator in their Department of International Magical Co-Operation. He gets it due to being able to speak English, French, German and Italian. He also moved to Bartonburg.
    1884 The year of no sex ever. It is the worse time of Jacques life. Plague. Fire. Eh, he can deal with it. But he can't really deal with the no sex thing. His priorities are obviously stellar.
    1885: At the end of January, things certainly start looking up. Jacques ends up hooking up with Ozias Lovegood and definitely makes up for lost time all in one night. On February 1, his new lover gifts him an owl named Selene.
    We’ll see.

    unless you're related to him, work under him, or are a mudblood, lucius is actually very friendly. your character might find him intimidating, but would not consider him a giant dick, esp. if they are also a UCPB.
