    Bartholomew Travers II, Father [1845]
    Judith Travers née Longbottom, Mother [1852]
    Bartholomew Travers III, Brother [1871]
    Eldin “Ellie” Travers, Twin [1874]
    Dolores “Lola” Travers, Sister [1877]
    Horatio “Horry” Travers, Brother [1880]

    Various grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and some bastard half-siblings.
    Standing at five feet even, it’s evident that Guppy will inherit his father’s height, just as he inherited Bart II’s dark hair and eyes. He has a slender build and dresses in whatever is laid out for him, though frequently gets it dirty—even when dirt repellant charms are placed on it! He is left-handed.
    1874 | Eldin Travers is the second son born to Bartholomew and Judith Travers. Gregory follows within the hour.

    1877 | Dolores is born, effectively ruining Christmas as far as a three-year-old Guppy is concerned.

    1880 | Horatio is born.

    1881 | Ellie’s first act of magic is to light a candle. Guppy tries to mimic this, but inadvertently sets the curtains on fire instead. Oops.

    1882 | The youngest Bart Travers leaves for Hogwarts. He is sorted into Slytherin. While Guppy does not miss his brother, he is quite jealous that Bart gets to go off and do fun things while he’s stuck at home getting chastised for lighting Nanny’s hair on fire.

    1883 | An aunt dies.

    1884 | Another aunt dies.

    1885 | Guppy doesn’t realize how many aunts he has until another one dies but there are still some living. He receives his Hogwarts letter at the end of July.
