    History: Jalek is the son of a pure-blood witch, and a pure-blood wizard. His parents met on his father's first mission, tracking down a rogue werewolf. He ended up saving her, but suffered a nasty scratch which has left a scar. His father still suffers temper issues on full moons, despite being normally calm and level headed. They were married shortly after. From a young age Jalek showed a knack for music, and begin learning the flute at the age of five, by ten he had become much better than most his age.. Shortly after he turned 11, his parents enrolled him at Hogwarts. In between his time studying and playing Quidditch, he continued to sing, play the flute, and learn the guitar. Over the past five years he did fairly well in almost all his courses, excelling in Defense Against the Dark Arts, and doing poorly in Potions. He keeps his flute with him at school. He first joined a Quidditch team in Quidditch Club in his second year, and has been playing every year since, he hopes to make seeker for his house in his sixth year. He spent much of his summer practicing both Quidditch and dueling. The time he spent with his family on holiday is held warmly in his heart, but he feels more at home at Hogwarts due to all the time he has spent there.
    Personality: Character Description: Jalek is always full of energy, and can be found either playing an instrument, or practicing his Seeker skills for Quidditch. He loves to learn about new things, and is very loyal to his friends. He is not afraid to get into a fight, and is a skilled duelist due to his father, an Auror, teaching him how to fight, namely theories, and footwork, albeit without actually casting magic. When he is not busy studying or playing Quidditch he can often be found at the dueling club.

    Sample Roleplay Post:Jalek was excited when he saw his father's owl flying towards him with a long bundle. The owl flew overhead, dropping it into his readied arms. He eagerly unwrapped the paper cover, revealing a long polished oak box. He opened it, revealing the newest Firebolt model. He grinned, remembering the owl he sent his father telling him about how he had decided to sign up as seeker for the Gryffindor Quidditch team this year.
    The issue is, he had never played an official game in his life. He also needed to break in his new broom. Stowing away the box, he carried it with him to the university's pitch and walked out onto the field. He mounted quickly, making sure to keep his body in the correct position. This model was one of the fastest, and could turn on a dime, but braking too fast, or leaning too much could cause it to flip and throw it's rider off in the blink of an eye.
    He needed to be extremely careful. He sighed, readying himself, and shot into the air. He began performing some basic maneuvers, all the while increasing his speed slowly. At lower speeds he practiced tricks like the Wronski Feint.
