    Appearance: Amariah is astoundingly tall, at 6’2”, something that people took note of his whole life, and a thing that has fed his ego. He has a strong build, but it’s beginning to soften with age and a comfortable lifestyle. His hair is thick and wavy and his eyes are a steely blue.
    He dressed very fashionably, and enjoys spending his money on lavish things, and like his wife, he can often be found wearing clothes that are a little bit daring for the time. He likes to stand out. He likes to see people watching them, because he knows they’re a striking pair.
    He’s right handed.
    1850 | Amariah Crabbe was born on January 18th. He’s spoiled beyond reason. This seems important even though he can’t remember it.
    1854 | Amariah’s brother, Trahern was born. He hates having a sibling.
    1861 | Ama goes to Hogwarts for the first time and was sorted into Slytherin. He’s very pleased with this.
    1863 | During his third year Aubrey chooses to take Ancient Runes and Arithmancy as his electives.
    1865 | Juliette, Amariah’s sister, was born in this year. Ama takes his OWL exams.
    1866 | He does remarkably well on his OWLs, which surprises everyone and he pretends like it was innate skill, when really he’d secretly been studying nonstop leading up to it.
    He receives mostly Os with a few Es tossed in.
    1867 -1868 | He graduates from Hogwarts with NEWTs in History of Magic, Potions, Transfiguration, and Charms. Immediately gets a job working in the Department of Magical Transportation as an apparation test examiner. He likes it, and he enjoys being busy.
    1875 | January of this year he starts to court Frances Prewett, whom he met at work two months prior. He thinks she’s gorgeous, which is what first draws hm. The more time he spends with her, he finds her amicable and fashionable. He likes the attention they get as a couple. He then proposes to her in November after eight months of courting her and she accepts.
    1876 | He and Frances get married. The wedding is rather lavish.
    1877 | They move out to Hogsmeade.
    1880 |Finally he has a child after years of trying with his wife. He calls him Ichabod despite his mothers nickname for him. He plans to raise him to become a fine young man just like his father did to him. He's hired as the head co-ordinator for the Portkey Office.
    1884 | Ichabod almost dies in a carriage incident and Ama blames Frances for not paying enough attention. He is pressing for her to have another child in case this one doesn't live. Earlier in the year, for his birthday, he received a camera from Francis. He started to take pictures just around the neighborhood and Hogsmeade. He found he really enjoyed doing this.
    1885 | Continues to work in the Ministry, not faithful to Frances and sometimes he berates her, but for the most part, at least in public, he is completely civil with her. He's worried Frances isn't doing enough for his son.
    He loses a rather large sum of money gambling.
    May 1885 | In order to recover some of his debt, he starts selling pornography to his friends. A friend sets him up with some women willing to pose for him and he puts his newfound camera skills to good use. He takes up with some of the women.
    January 1885 | His wife is poisoned by the maid. For a while he thinks that it's possibly one of his lovers that tried to harm his wife, and he's relieved to know it wasn't. He's not sure if he'd be happy if his wife died, but in the end he realizes he doesn't want to be without her. After she's better, however, he continues his love affairs.
    August 1885| After much patience he's promoted to Head of Magical Transportation at the ministry.
