    The most obvious thing to notice about Ian is just how very tall he is. Standing at six feet four inches, he isn't the tallest person in his family, but he's still head and shoulders above quite a few people of his acquaintance. His build is on the more muscular side, though overall he's built proportionally. His hair is dark brown and not terribly neat, though he keeps it reasonably short for convenience--and also because he thinks he looks better that way. His face is only clean shaven when he's made a mistake with a razor. His eyes are blue. He's not terribly fond of kilts or robes, but most muggle fashion works for him. He is left handed.
    1856. Ninian is born the seventh child to Donald and Griselda MacFusty. From the start, he is a rather loud, boisterous tot.

    1858. Malcolm is born. Ian doesn't actually remember this, so he has no opinion on it.

    1860. Gilroy is born. Ian still doesn't really remember this, though he does vaguely recall thinking babies look funny.

    1861. Angus is born. Ian shows his first sign of magic. Tiger leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.

    1862. Alasdair and Archibald are born prematurely and die after only a few weeks. Ian mostly just remembers everything being very sad, and he thinks he must have been sad, too, but he's mostly blocked it out.

    1863. Tor and Tav leave for Hogwarts and are sorted into Gryffindor. Ian is starting feel a little impatient for his own turn, but it's still ages out.

    1864. Mungo is born. New siblings are old hat by now. Hamish leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.

    1865. Malvina is born. Although Ian loves all of his siblings more than anything, he is starting to wonder when it's, you know, enough. Also James goes to Hogwarts and is predictably sorted into Gryffindor.

    1866. Roddy leaves for Hogwarts, predictably sorted into Gryffindor.

    1868. Tiger graduates. Ian finally, finally goes to Hogwarts. It is very unsurprising when he's sorted into Gryffindor--not just because all of his family was or had been Gryffindors, but also because he'd been fully ready to attempt to coerce the Hat if need be. He proves to be a thoroughly average student, though he does well in Defense Against the Dark Arts and Transfiguration.

    Since another sibling doesn't seem to be forthcoming, he assumes his parents have come to their senses.

    1869. Just kidding. Robert is born. Mac leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.

    1870. Tor and Tav graduate. Ninian begins his third year, choosing Care of Magical Creatures as his only elective, having little to no interest in anything else.

    1871. Hamish graduates. Gilroy leaves for Hogwarts.

    1872 Angus leaves for Hogwarts and Jamie graduates.

    1873. Ian sits his OWLs and doesn't do too terribly, but he still drops everything except Defense Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, Care of Magical Creatures and--because he did just well enough for it--Charms. Roddy graduates.

    1874. Tiger marries Birgit Cavanaugh.

    1875. Ian graduates. He doesn't really put much thought into what he's going to do since it has always been obvious to him. He becomes a dragonkeeper and begins working with a male dragon named Aodh. Dunny leaves for Hogwarts.

    1876. Mac graduates and Vina leaves for Hogwarts.

    1877. Living so far away from everything, the events of this year don't really affect Ian, though he does become involved with a "lady" who lives in Hogsmeade during the fall, and at least finds himself there with some frequency. When that inevitably ends, he moves on quickly enough.

    1879. Gus graduates.

    1880. Dunny and Vina are badly injured by a toddling dragon, but at least they survive.

    1881. Rabbie leaves for Hogwarts.

    1882. Vina is expelled for supposed lewd behavior, and also ends up pregnant.

    1883. Tor marries Cecily Fleming after the spiked tea scandal. Tav marries Ethelyn Vaisey, who dies in December. Hamish marries Violet Ollivander. Ian is appropriately horrified by all of them and shows zero inclination to follow suit. Dunny graduates.

    1884. Tiger's wife, Birdie, dies. Tor decides he wants to divorce his wife. Vina gives birth to another child and is brought home. She also goes missing and, when she returns, has lost her memory and is a very different person than Ian remembers. Rabbie is killed by a toddling dragon in September. Ian doesn't want to talk about it. On the bright side, Mac also gets married, to Imogen Van Helsing.

    1885. Ian's life currently is mostly made up with work and family. And sleeping around, which he could stand to be more subtle about, but in truth he doesn't really care that much.

    Ian speaks with a Scottish accent. If Steph tried to write it, she would offend every Scottish person to ever live.
