    Appearance: Perry stands at a rather stocky and built five foot eight but walks around as a man much taller. With a very confident stride, he tends to wear clothing that he hopes make him appear as though he’s higher up than he truly is. His hair is a dark brown, kept at a medium length so that he can have quite the tousled strands and perfect for fingers to be ran through. While he has been known to be seen with a clean shaven face, he tends to prefer a bit of scruff thinking that it adds to his rugged appeal. Perry can no longer really remember which hand is his dominate hand. For all intents and purposes, he does tend to favor his right but is quite ambidextrous.
    1861: Final Keene child born. Albert dies not long after Baxter goes to school, leaving Perry without any recollection of what his father was like, instead growing to view Bax as the father figure.
    1868: Bax graduates from school and amidst Perry’s excitement to have his big brother home more, his first signs of magic are shown by levitating himself up to the ceiling while he literally jumped for joy.
    1872: Goes to school, sorted into Hufflepuff.
    1872: Tries out for the Hufflepuff Quidditch team, makes it as a beater.
    1877: Does okay on his OWLs, nothing to brag about. Makes Captain of the team. The Keene family buys a home in Hogsmeade.
    1879: Graduates from school with average NEWTs, again nothing to brag about. Tries out for Puddlemere, makes team as a reserve player.
    1881: A first string beater retires and Perry moves up to fill the position.
    1885: Perry is still gallivanting about as a Quidditch player and living in his brother’s home. He imagines things will change as Bax seems to be rather serious about a woman. He  doesn’t know who though as he doesn’t really bother to ask questions.
    Personality: Self-Absorbed. Stubborn. Friendly. Spontaneous.
