    Eoin currently stands at five feet, eight inches and has some room to grow. He is on the wirey side of things and boasts a lanky build rather than muscular. He has red hair and green eyes. Eoin is right handed. Eoin tends to dress in more traditional wizarding attire and tends to go for neutral colors. He has a splash of freckles across his face and various parts of his body.

    1873: Bevin is born.
    1875: Bridget is born.
    1877: Brady is born.
    1878: Eoin displays his first signs of magic.
    1881: Eoin gets his Hogwarts letter. That September, he is sorted into Hufflepuff which doesn't really come as a surprise to anyone that knows him. Despite his awkward, shy nature, he manages to make a friend or two from each house, one of which includes Hector Prince.
    1883: Eoin has some ideas about being either a herbologist, a potioneer or something within the Ministry. He chooses Ghoul Studies, Arithmancy and Care of Magical Creatures as his electives.
    1885: Eoin finds himself having to put up with Hector bitching about one of the Gryffindor beaters a lot. He finds it kind of amusing and just lets his best friend bitch. He has completed his fourth year and he is nervous about starting his fifth.

    Sample Roleplay Post:
    Eoin had not expected to get a prefects badge and so was blessedly unconcerned with the lack of one with his letter. Whoever had gotten it surely deserved it. He couldn't think of anyone he would be violently opposed to having as a prefect.

    At any rate, the plan of the day had been to go to Hectors so he got ready to do that. First though, he had to go from Limerick to Hogsmeade but side-along apparition made that easy. His father had business in Hogsmeade ... or something. Eoin didn't much care other than having a free ride.

    He then made his way to Hectors. He was aware that his friend had been hoping to be prefect and Eoin hoped he had gotten it. He was let in and told where he could find Hector and when he did, he could tell something was wrong.

    "What's wrong?" He asked, fully expecting some diatribe about how Hector wasn't prefect.
