    Alfred Clearwater
    In Character

    Full Name: Alfred Clearwater.

    Nicknames: Alfie!

    Birthdate: 25th May, 1868.

    Current Age: 17.

    Occupation: Sixth year.

    Reputation: 5.

    Residence: Hogwarts/Bartonburg during the summer.

    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw.

    Wand: Ash. 13 inches. Unicorn hair centre. He is right handed.

    Blood Status: Half-Blood.

    Social Class: Middle class.

    Evelyn Clearwater | Father | 1829-1879
    Cora Clearwater nee Wilkes | Mother | 1841-
    Abigail Clearwater | Sister | 1870-
    Clara Clearwater | Sister | 1873-

    Appearance: Standing at the lofty and slightly ludicrous height of 6 feet Alfie is a strong and imposing young man who is an obvious asset to his Quidditch team due to his lofty reach. He dresses well, if a tiny bit scruffily when he’s with his friends (his mother makes him tuck his shirt in though!) and is usually to be found smiling at somebody or something or just the trees. From his mother he inherited his fair hair and his blue eyes. His height is anyone’s guess. Possibly a milkman?

    1868: Alfred is born, a relatively small baby ironically enough, as the first child to Evelyn and Cora Clearwater. He birth, unsurprisingly, is met with much joy and he is an extremely happy bouncing baby boy. Current height: 16 inches.

    1870: He is joined by a little sister – Abigail. Baby yays! Alfie gives her a tiny and imaginary pudgy high five! Current height: 2 foot 6 inches.

    1873: A few days after his second baby sister is born (he and Abigail actually manage a little jig!) Alfie displays magic for the first time by making her cot rock so she’ll sleep. Current height: 3 foot 5.

    1879: After an extremely pleasant and uneventful childhood Alfred receives his Hogswarts letter and is thrilled to be attending. He is sorted into Ravenclaw house without much dallying on the Hat’s part and makes quick friends. However, tragedy strikes later that year when his bellowed father is killed in a freak accident. He is devastated but eventually resolves to be strong for his mother and sisters. Current height: 4 foot 8..

    1883: Alfred returns after the summer feeling slightly… different. Current height: 5 foot 11 the fuck Alfie?!

    1884-: Entering into his sixth year Alfred decides to join the house Quiddith team to capitalise on his newfound reach and becomes a beater! He also enthusiastically began his NEWTS in COMC, Herbology, Potions, Transfiguration, Charms and DADA. Go Ravenclaws!Current height: 6 foot.

    Personality: Kind and considerate, Alfie is a happy young man despite the occasional upset he feels whenever he thinks of his father. He is still slightly gangly but he is beginning to grow into his height – something he is exceptionally glad of! – but he has been rendered slightly shy by his awkward height. He’s basically a gentle giant!
