    Standing at four foot seven inches, Simon is a slight boy with brown hair and brown eyes. He mostly wears muggle clothing, which mostly consists of whatever is forced upon him. He is right handed.
    1874. Simon is born the second child and first son of Mr. and Mrs. Flourish.

    1878. Simon gains a brother, which he isn't terribly enthusiastic about. He does his best to ignore the new addition until he's less boring and drool-y.

    1880. Simon shows his first sign of magic, causing a shelf in the shop to topple over.

    1885. His first year is at last approaching. It is essentially all that he will talk about, to the great annoyance of his family.
