    Kael Sheehan
    #1
    Full Name: Kael Morgan Sheehan (O'Siodhachain)
    Birthdate: February 27th, 1866
    Current Age: 18
    Wand: Oak, 10", rather bendy, dragon heartstring
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Occupation: Bartender at the Hog's Head
    Blood Status: Muggleborn
    Social Class: Lower Class

    Family:
    Mother- Elizabeth Sheehan, 35. Prostitute.
    Father- Marcus Blundell, 68. Aristocrat.

    Appearance:
    Kael is skinny and lanky, having grown up on very little. He is, however, decently tall at 6 feet. He's got a mass of dark curls on his head, green eyes that often have dark circles underneath, a wide mouth with full lips and a grin that just says he's up to no good. He has a chipped front tooth which he's a bit self conscious of, but it doesn't keep him from grinning. He's got small elf-like ears his mother teases him for, saying they came from his father. He's got a tattoo of a rose on the back of his right hand, near his thumb, done rather simply but in a vibrant red. He got this for his mother, but she wasn't too happy about it. He's also got a tattoo on his left arm of an anchor, to symbolize being moored to his land, body and heritage. Again, his mother was not pleased about this one either.

    He's got a bit of discoloration on his lip, and a "beauty mark" above his right eye near his eyebrow. He's not wealthy, so he wears simple clothing, cotton shirts of plain colours and simple pants. He's always wearing his brown leather boots, which look like they've seen better days.

    History: Kael, of course, was an accident, but not the first child his mother bore. The others had been up for adoption. Two others. Kael being the middle child. He was born in the slums of Dublin, in a whore house with prostitutes acting as midwives. The reason that Kael was spared the orphanage was only because his father provided his mother with montly support to look after him. When Kael was three this monthly support stopped coming, and he has no idea what happened to his father. All he knows of him are the terrible things his mother and her 'coworkers' say, and this has been ingrained in him. Because his mother had already grown attached to him, and the Madame of the house fond of him, they kept him around, but he had to do odd jobs around the brothel to earn his keep.

    He had a father-like figure for a time. One of her mother's clients named Lachlan. He brought Kael toys, and chocolates, but he stopped coming, and Kael's mother told him that Lachlan had moved away. In actuality, he found out years later, Lachlan had been killed in a robbery in his home, and had children of his own. Kael wanted to attend the funeral but his mother told him funerals weren't places for people like them; they only dealt with happy times.

    When Kael was 11 he got his letter for Hogwarts. His mother was absolutely fascinated with the thought of magic and encouraged him to attend. He hadn't wanted to leave her or the other women -- they fawned over him -- but his mother told him he was too smart to pass up the offer. He was given a scholarship because his mother couldn't afford the schooling, and with his extra allowance he bought himself the school supplies, most of which were second had and severely lacking. Despite his lack of resources, he showed incredibly aptitude, especially in spell casting, but he has never been particularly good at reading or writing, and falls short in those categories. He has a very photographic memory, but he finds it fails him when he needs it the most.

    He struggled to keep his scholarship, and wasn't sure if he wanted to continue at the school. His goals were anything but lofty. He finished school, but did very poorly in all of his O.W.L.s. He began to attend his next year, but halfway through decided it wasn't for him. He moved back home to the brothel where he managed security for a time before his mother encouraged him to return to work some place his magic was valued. He came back to Hogsmeade when he turned 17. He was hired as a bartender at the Hogshead shortly after returning, and he loves it. Sometimes he wishes he had continued on in school, as he really enjoyed COMC and would have liked to have gone on to work in the field.

    Personality: Kael has been raised by women, and women with few morals, according to women of higher class, and men who do not make frequent visits to see them. Kael grew up with a very matriarchal view of the world, and often found himself loathing the men that came for his mother's affections. He was taught from an early age that there was nothing wrong with men (except his father, of course), but he knew they were just saying this to make him comfortable with himself, and behind closed doors they said nothing but scathing or embarrassing remarks about the opposite sex.

    He has never really loathed himself though, as if he puts those men in a different league from himself. He associates all those men with high class, which, to him, are the scum of the Earth, not the other way around. He does not discriminate against blood status; being muggleborn himself he does, however, hate when purebloods put themselves above him. To him, everyone shits, and anyone who pretends otherwise is a phony.

    He's closer to girls than he is to guys half of the time, though people might think this is strange because of his crude nature. He would never bring harm to a girl, but some girls think otherwise because he's mouthy, and lower-class. He has no problem saying his mother is a prostitute, but this has greatly alienated him.

    Random Facts:
    • He's a bit dyslexic, and has a hard time writing and reading because of it. However, he learned verbally very quickly.
    • His favourite class was Care of Magical Creatures. It's exciting to him to get to see all of these creatures that his mother told him stories of as he was growing up.
    • He talks very quickly, and his accent sometimes trips people up. He also swears a great deal.
    • He usually finds himself down near the Slums. He has been known to be seen in the Maison de Venus, but he doesn't solicit the girls. He's usually chatting with the barkeeps and prostitutes, and he's become a bit of a fixture there. He's not sure they take him seriously but he enjoys their company, it reminds him of home.
    • He loves Quidditch, and he's been quick on his broom since his first year.
