    Owen Beauregard
    In Character
    Full Name: Owen Anthony Beauregard
    Nicknames: N/A
    Birthdate: May 23, 1871
    Current Age: 14 years
    Occupation: Student
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Bartonburg
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: Mahogany, 11 1/2 in., dragon heartstring, yielding
    Blood Status: Half-Blood
    Social Class: Middle
    Father. Vincent Beauregard b. 1834
    Mother. Stella Beauregard nee Walsh b. 1841
    Brother. Bentley Beauregard 1861-1883
    Sister. Adella Beauregard b. 1863
    Sister. Elsie Beauregard b. 1866
    Brother. Harvey Beauregard b. 1867
    Sister. Charlotte Beauregard b. 1871
    Standing at five feet three inches, Owen has short brown hair and blue eyes. He is of slight build--not thin, precisely, but like he hasn't quite grown into himself quite yet. He pays little attention to what he wears, though it's generally reasonably neat. He is right handed.
    1871. Owen is born the third son and fifth child of Vincent and Stella Beauregard. He is born a few minutes before his twin, Charlotte. This ultimately means very little, but still pleases him anyway.

    1872. Shay Ross comes to live with the family. Owen has no opinion on this, being still a baby. Shay leaves for Hogwarts in September, and is sorted in Gryffindor.

    1873. Bentley leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.

    1874. Adella leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. Owen mostly remembers being annoyed that everyone seems to be able to go off somewhere when he has to stay at home.

    1877. The Beauregards move to Hogsmeade and Elsie leaves for Hogwarts, to be sorted into Gryffindor. Near Christmas, Owen shows his first sign of magic.

    1878. Harvey leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. Owen is starting to get quite impatient for his turn, and is mostly annoyed at being left with just Charlotte. She's fine, he supposes, but he'd like more interesting options than his twin.

    1882. At last, it's his turn! Owen and Charlotte are off to Hogwarts, sorted into Gryffindor and Ravenclaw respectively. Owen proves to be a rather poor student, though he enjoys making friends and generally being involved. He thinks that school would be rather wonderful if it weren't for classes and homework.

    1883. Bentley dies in an apartment fire in Boston. Owen mostly doesn't know how to deal with this fact--missing his brother but not really knowing how to handle that.

    1884. The summer is terrible, but at least he makes it out in one piece. In the fall, Owen begins his third year, choosing Ghoul Studies as his elective.

    1885. Present day.
