    Father. Cecil Jennings b. 1829
    Mother. Brielle Jennings nee O'Shaughnessy b. 1836

    Brother. James Jennings b. 1860
    Sister. Nathalie Jennings b. 1861
    Sister. Annabeth Jennings b. 1865
    Standing at five feet six inches, David is of a relatively lean build. He has medium brown hair and blue eyes. His preference tends to be to wear muggle clothing as he feels more comfortable in it. He is right handed.
    1855. David is born the first child of Cecil and Brielle Jennings.

    1858. Robert is born. Babies are weird, and this is mostly as far as David's opinion goes until his brother becomes less droolly.

    1860. James is born.

    1861. Nathalie is born.

    1862. David displays his first sign of magic when he appears unharmed after falling down several stairs. He assumes it's a strange fluke and tries to be more careful in the future.

    1865. Annabeth is born.

    1866. A man comes and gives him some rather shocking news--he's a wizard! David doesn't know what to make of this, but he's allowed to attend the magic school that the man represents, so in September he's off to Hogwarts where he is sorted into Gryffindor. He makes an effort to be studious, wanting to make the most of the situation.

    1868. David chooses Arithmancy and Ancient Runes as his electives in his third year.

    1869. Robert leaves for Hogwarts.

    1871. David sits his OWLs and it seems his studying has paid off, as he achieves quite good grades. He chooses to continue on with Defense Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, Potions, Herbology, Charms and Ancient Runes.

    1873. David graduates, and uses his high NEWT grades to obtain an internship at St. Mungo's, in the Artifact Incidents ward. He proves to be as serious about his work as he was about his studies. In September, Nat leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw.

    1874. David becomes a full healer.

    1875. Robert graduates.

    1879. Nathalie graduates.

    1881. The Assistant Head position in his ward opens up and David is very pleased when he is promoted.

    1884. Late in the year, David learns the painful truth about his parentage--that Cecil Jennings isn't actually his father, or the father of Robert and Nat for that matter--from his mother, but agrees to keep quiet for the sake of the family. He has no desire to tell anyone, but he resents having to bear the burden at all. It also gives him a very irrational feeling of guilt that he tries to ignore.

    1885. Finding it increasingly difficult to remain at home, David decides to relocate to Irvingly. A recently jilted Nathalie decides to join him, and he's both glad for the company and still very uncomfortable. On the bright side, he quite likes Irvingly.
