    When Emmett was a child, people used to stop his parents in the street to tell him how cute he was (even when his ears sticking out a little bit). Unfotunately, this went to his head. He even reminded himself of this when he went through the awkward gangly and pimply stages of puberty. Emmett has a heavy brow over blue/grey eyes. He’s got an easy – slightly cocky – smile made all the more mischievous by slightly pointy incisors and a mastery of the raised eyebrow. He has a strong, slightly crooked nose (bludger to the face), and dark brown hair that’s usually wind swept or sticking out in places. He dresses well enough when he has to, but he’s usually wearing simple clothes. Although he’s a little vane, he relies more on his charms than his exterior (how far this gets him is debatable). This is a little bit naïve of him, as a reason a lot of girls might be attracted to him generally isn’t his charm, and often it will be something he says that pisses them off.

    He’s right handed and 5’5”.


    1868 - Emmett is born. As he’s the third boy to Maurice and Alice, this isn’t an entirely special affair, but all is well anyway.

    1872 - Chester heads to Hogwarts, which would have been traumatic enough, but was made even worse by the fact Leah was born the same year. He didn’t like suddenly not being the youngest, and he doesn’t know how to act around babies. He’s yelled at for nearly pulling his sister from the sofa and he performs his first act of magic. Smashing an old vase his mother was quite attached to. He felt so bad afterward that he cried until he threw up.

    1876 - Theo heads to Hogwarts and he’s relieved to suddenly be the only boy in the house while his brother’s are at school. He becomes a little bossy with his sister.

    summer 1877 - The whole Beauregard brood move to Hogsmeade. Emmett finds the whole thing very exciting. He also likes being closer to Hogwarts.

    1878- Cousin Harvey leaves for Hogwarts before Emmett and he’s very annoyed with this fact. Also very sad, but wouldn’t admit it to anyone. This is the year when he decides he’s going to be a famous Quidditch player. He borrows an old broom from his cousin Bentley, and ends up breaking his arm when he tries to fly it down the stairs. His parents are not impressed. Leah thought this was hysterical.

    1879 - He finally, finally goes off to Hogwarts! He’s sorted into Slytherin. He’s not sure how to feel about this, as he’d been hoping to be sorted into Hufflepuff with Harvey. He immediately knocks over a glass of pumpkin juice all over the table and into some older kids laps though, and for the first week of school he writes his family many many letters asking if he could just drop out and come home. But then he gets to take flying lessons and everything is right with the world. He’s really not very good at his classes.

    1881- A position on the slytherin quidditch team opens up, but it goes to an older student and he’s more than a little annoyed.

    1882 - Emmett adds divination and Care of Magical Creatures to his course load.

    1883 - His sister joins him at Hogwarts. He’s irritated that she’s sorted into Slytherin with him, but he uses the opportunity to play big brother. Bentley dies in a fire in Boston, and although Emmett wasn’t very close to him, he always looked up to the older cousin. Emmett takes his OWLs and doesn’t do very well…

    Charms- E
    Transfiguration- O
    Potions- A
    History of Magic- A
    Defense Against the Dark Arts- O
    Astronomy- A
    Herbology- E
    Care of Magical Creatures- O
    Divination- A

    1884- Emmett drops Divination and Astronomy. He has to retake Potions. He’s actually pretty good at Apparation. He’s forced to study with a tutor over the summer.

    1885 - There’s a quidditch position available! Emmett is ecstatic! …Only… he spends the whole try-out huddled beside a toilet, very ill and misses the whole thing. He’s devastated, and enraged and he’s sure that someone sabotaged him.
