    Sebastian Elijah Beauregard
    In Character
    Full Name: Sebastian Elijah Beauregard
    Nicknames: Seb,
    Birthdate: 30 April 1866
    Current Age: 19
    Occupation: Creature-Induced Injuries Healer at Hogsmeade Hospital
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Hogsmeade
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor Alumnus
    Wand: Holly, 13 1/2 inches, supple, Lionfish Spine core
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Middle

    Sebastian has a rather elfish look about him – angled and thin features with striking blue eyes are mellowed by a gentle and kind gaze. He always has a rather calm, pensive air about him, but his sandy blonde hair is rather in disarray. He always has his nose in a book or in paperwork (for work). He stands at five feet, seven inches and often wears professional clothing underneath his hospital robes. His wand arm is his right.

    Sebastian was born to Edna and Charles Beauregard, the second of their children and (after the birth of Phoebe) the only male of his siblings. Growing up he was rather quiet and (opposite of Lucinda) obeyed his parents orders without protest or complaint. He did end up picking up the same habit as Lucinda of staying up past his bedtime to read plenty of books (not exactly the same reason as his older sister).

    He grows rather close to his cousin, Elsie, and it's soon discovered they're both extremely alike; bookish, studious, caring, loyal. They like being in each other's company and, when visiting each other, like to hanging out in the family library, just reading books and occasionally making a comment here or there. They're mostly just content to sit together and enjoy each other's presence.

    Sebastian's first act of magic was at the age of 5 when he got extremely flustered by a question at Christmas dinner and ended up causing all the books in his family library float up to the ceiling.

    When he gets his Hogwarts letter, he's overjoyed – the first person he contacts is Elsie who, he's pleased to discover, has also received her letter. He's positive he'll get sorted into Ravenclaw – his whole family is – so when he actually gets sorted into Gryffindor, he's left gobsmacked. Pleased, because Elsie was consequently sorted into Gryffindor just before him, but baffled nonetheless, and he feels rather awkward in a house with so many rowdy and outspoken people. He finds solace in the fact that Elsie feels the same way, which draws them closer together than they were before. Soon, he's able to tell when his cousin has had enough socializing (especially during social events), and takes it upon himself to make excuses for them to quit the room, or take a break on the side.

    An introvert through and through, Sebastian finds it a bit more difficult to make friends within his house, but he's rather pleased when he does make a few good friends. He excels in his classes, and soon climbs to be on of the top students in his class. School is easy and enjoyable for him. He also finds comfort in flying. He never liked heights, but at his first flying lesson his first year, he had to try at least once (one of his mottos of life). Once he kicked off from the ground, he found the rush of the air exhilarating. The fact that he could be alone up in the air was a balm to the nerves that acted up when in social situations. He doesn't try out for Quidditch, but enjoys taking one of the school brooms to fly around the Quidditch pitch when it's empty.

    In his fifth year he's made Prefect of Gryffindor House, and takes to the role like a fish to water. At the same time, Sebastian's friends start noticing girls more and more – and the more and more they talk about it, the more and more Sebastian finds himself disinterested in the subject. At first, he assumes his subconscious just wants him to focus on his school work, but then he finds himself becoming flustered around one of the boys in his class.

    He attempts to put these feelings by the wayside and throws himself into his prefect duties and studying for his NEWTs. Occasionally he goes for a fly around the Quidditch pitch to try and clear his mind, but it's to no avail. He tries to talk to Elsie about it, but continually chickens out and shifts the conversation towards her instead of him. Determined not to let this inner conflict take over his mind, Sebastian attempts to reconcile with himself, but finds great difficulty in doing so. It isn't until he starts seeing a pattern in the way a distant classmate behaves towards his male friend, that Sebastian realizes that he isn't the only one that feels this way towards men. Though it's not enough to clear his mind completely, Sebastian finds solace in this fact, and attempts to continue on with his work.

    His seventh year, Sebastian is named Head Boy along with Rosalind Pendergast. Just like when he was prefect, he throws himself into his Head Boy duties, and enjoys the distraction it brings from his inner turmoil. Upon his graduation, with the help of his past summer internships, he manages to get a job at Hogsmeade Hospital as a Creature Induced Injuries Healer. He still lives with his family, but enjoys the work so far at the Hospital.
