    Snoozy "Sleeping Beauty"
    #1
    In Character

    Full Name: Snoozy
    Nicknames: Sleeping Beauty
    Birthdate: August 1, 1870
    Current Age: 15 Years
    Race: House Elf
    Occupation: Fainting House-Elf
    Reputation: None
    Residence: Andy’s flat in Irvingly
    Social Class: None, I mean he wears a pillow case
    Family:
    Mother: “Beauty”
    Snoozy’s relationship with his mother is fairly strong. He values his parents in general, though is fairly jealous in her ability to read (even though it’s a lie) and constantly pesters her about it. He also thinks she is a pretty elf.


    Father: “Beast”
    His father is a big ‘ol grump. Although objects can be hurled his way at any given moment out of frustration, Snoozy remains a dedicated son and still learns much from his old man.


    Sister: “Little Mermaid”
    His eldest sister, Snoozy shares a conflicted relationship with her. He sees humans as either friends or masters, not potential love interests like his sister. She is often a little promiscuous as well.


    Sister: “Snow White”
    Snow White is one of his siblings who Snoozy likes certain traits of while despises others. Her singing can, at times, get annoying regardless of how good it may be and her mouth constantly spouts information about the other elves or humans that would seem often scandalous. The one thing he does love about her is the fact that she can make delicious treats once in awhile.


    Sister: “Cinderella”
    Snoozy values Cinderella’s work ethic, though after the inheritance of the business by Andy, he has noticed that she has entered some sort of depression. He has often tried to cheer her up, though nothing seems to aid her mood.



    Appearance:
    Snoozy has downward sloping ears and is often seen hunched over almost as if he’s tired all the time. Like most elves, his face is wrinkly with a large pointed nose right in the center. His eyes are very large and a lighter shade of blue. His build is, as with most elves, skinny, yet this doesn’t define his ability to do what is asked of him. He stands at around 3 ft, is seen ironically wearing an old pillowcase, and prefers his right hand when asked to unscrew something or other tasks that require such actions.



    History:


    1870 | The little house-elf is born into a breeding business owned by a somewhat strange man. The man fancied cards and would typically gamble, leaving most of the elves to fend for themselves.


    1871 | He is named Snoozy because of his constant feinting and restful nature. Even as a tot, he reacted strongly to pain and scared his parents often because of this.


    1875 | At this age, he typically played with his siblings and watched his parents tend to the house and chores. There are also other elves, suspected to be part of the breeding business. They are a little older than he is, but he is glad to see other faces around.


    1878 | Snoozy begins learning the ropes of being a stereotypical house elf and what is to become of him. He wears an old pillowcase now as his only form of clothing and is sometimes punished by his master for fainting on the job. He can’t help it unfortunately. The other elves refrain from assisting or stepping in as it’s not their place.


    1880 | His father, Beast, throws dirty clothing at the other elves for not assisting with the laundry. This starts to get out of control and, on accident, a lamp is broken. Snoozy takes the blame when his master comes home and is locked in a closet for two days as punishment where he hits himself on the forehead for failing his master. This caused him to faint.


    1882 | Snoozy watches as another elf is beaten for violating a deck of cards that was laid out one afternoon. He almost cowers at the sight as it was quite grotesque, but knowing they are there to only serve put him back in the right mindset. He returned to his daily tasks.


    1884 | The teenage elf begs his mother to teach him how to read. As she has tricked the other elves to be able to do so, she has the upper hand. Snoozy is envious of her skills and asks the other elves if she has said anything to them, to which they all deny any encounter.


    1885 | As of october, the elf breeding business is transferred to Philander Reid through an illegal card game. The elves weren’t entirely sure if the man was up for the task, or why they were just all leaving, but at least they were together in the process and away from their previous master. Snoozy was especially excited about the transfer and upon arriving at the small flat, he silently celebrated out of view of his new master.


    Through 1885 and into 1886 | Snoozy somewhat enjoyed the master. He was much kinder than the first, though assumed this was because he had never owned a whole house-elf breeding business before. Snoozy sought a new sleeping area and decided to go under Andy’s bed, however this didn’t turn out so well due to a horrible scare in the night. The little house elf heard strange noises during the night at times, like someone was jumping on the bed with with awful groaning noises. He thought they might be in pain, or that they could be moans of fun! He wanted to join in the fun activity at times.



    Personality:
    Snoozy is an elf who wants nothing to do with pain. If he sees the possibility for it, he will most likely shy away from doing that task or go about it very carefully. If he does so happen to get a minor scratch, he will faint. The fact that he is also very clumsy doesn’t help this matter. Otherwise, Snoozy is one of the most productive elves out of the bunch and will spend all of his waking hours, though few, doing anything his master wishes. He will, if motivated enough and if he sees the need to, brave danger and fulfill a task, especially if his master commands it.



    Sample Roleplay Post:
    Snoozy visited with Little Mermaid one evening, seeing if she had been well and if her fascination with that human man had subsided. “Snoozy sees his sister, his wonderful sister! How is she?” He cheerfully asked, entering the area in which she slept. Unfortunately, she had already passed out and was not answering him. He wanted to find out what had been happening with her and her love but feared the wrath she had in store for him if she would be woken. He silently closed the door, but not before whispering “Snoozy doesn’t wish to disturb, Snoozy will shut the door so his sister can get some sleep.”
