    Appearance:
    Standing at five feet six inches, Jasper is of average height. He has black hair and brown eyes, and is of a reasonably average build. He's not particularly concerned with fashion, so tends to wear whatever is most practical, be it muggle clothes or robes. He is right handed.
    History:
    1856. Jasper is born the fourth son and fifth child of Wallace and Elizabeth Montague. His birth is relatively unremarkable. In the fall, Elias leaves for Hogwarts.

    1857. Annabelle is born, and proves to be the last of the Montague children.

    1858. Anthony leaves for Hogwarts.

    1861. Claudia leaves for Hogwarts.

    1862. Jasper shows his first sign of magic.

    1863. Elizabeth dies of a miscarriage. Jasper is appropriately sad, though he hardly ever saw his mother at all. Also Charles leaves for Hogwarts and Elias graduates.

    1865. Anthony graduates.

    1867. Jasper leaves for Hogwarts, where he is sorted into Slytherin with little effort. He is reasonably studious.

    1868. Claudia graduates and Annabelle leaves for Hogwarts.

    1869. For his third year, Jasper chooses Ancient Runes, Arithmancy and Care of Magical Creatures as his electives.

    1870. Charles graduates. In his fourth year, Jasper tries out for and makes the quidditch team as a Chaser. He is very pleased, and a bit gloat-y.

    1872. His OWLs come and go, and Jasper gets reasonably high marks. He chooses to continue with Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Charms, Transfiguration, Herbology, History of Magic and Care of Magical Creatures. The sting of not being made prefect is lessened considerably by the fact that he returns for his sixth year as quidditch captain.

    1874. Jasper graduates. What he would most like to do is play professional quidditch, but his father actually threatens to disown him if he makes a career of it. Wisely, he takes his impressive NEWT scores and puts them towards an internship at St. Mungo's in the Creature Induced Injuries ward. Additionally, Elias begins courting a girl who was in Jasper's year.

    1875. Annabelle graduates. Elias marries. Jasper finishes his internship and becomes a full healer.

    1877. The Montagues move to Hogsmeade, and Jasper transfers to Hogsmeade Hospital, thinking he might make a better mark on a newer establishment.

    1878. Elias' wife finally bears a son, Jeremiah.

    1884. Fire. Plague. The family home is damaged but fixably so. The plague, however, claims Jasper's two eldest brothers and his nephew. His father falls ill but recovers, which Jasper thinks is unfortunate.

    1885. In January, his hard work finally pays off, and Jasper is promoted to Assistant Head of his ward. As an added boon, Charles dies in the Ministry disaster. In under a year, he has gone from fourth son to sole heir and he's quite happy with this.
