    Stephen considers himself a rather plain-looking man. Standing at five feet, eight inches tall, Stephan has an average build and is of average weight. He has short-brown hair that's kept neat and tidy, and his eyes—turned from blue after a magical illness at a young age—are now brown. He dresses in proper upper class attire, usually dark blue or black robes, and wields his wand with his right hand.
    1851 | After the couple's fourth attempt to produce a son, Stephen Flint is finally born. Unlike his half-brothers his father produced before his marriage to his mother, Stephen is healthy and not sickly.

    1852 | Christina goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin.

    1857 | Josephine goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin.

    1858 | Stephen comes down with a magical illness that causes his eyes to turn from the color blue to the color brown.

    1859 | Stephen shows his first sign of magic.

    1860 | Olivia goes off to Hogwarts and is also sorted into Slytherin.

    1862 | Stephen goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Slytherin alongside his sisters. He excels in most of his classes that involve practical magic, and generally does well in classes that require a bunch of book work. The only class he finds terrible is Potions.

    1864 | Stephen adds Care of Magical Creatures, Ghoul Studies, and Divination to his class schedule. He despises Divination—even more than Potions!—and quickly finds himself failing, much to his disdain.

    1867 | Stephen takes his OWLs and passes every class except Divination and Potions. His parents are still proud, however, as most of his grades—specifically in classes they find useful—are either Es or Os.

    1869 | Stephen takes his NEWTs. He graduates with Os in Transfiguration, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Care of Magical Creatures, and Ghoul Studies, and three Es in Defence Against the Dark Arts, Charms, and Herbology. He begins working in the Spirit Division in the Department RCMC in the Ministry of Magic.

    1877 | The muggle riots break out all over the United Kingdom, and the Flint family places enchantments on their home to assure that no muggles can get in. They use apparating and the floo network in order to leave their home and only leave out the front door in emergencies.

    1879 | At the age of twenty eight, Stephen is chosen to head the Spirit Division when the current head leaves.

    1882 | Because of his work ethic and leadership qualities, Stephen is considered for the position of Assistant Head when the position is vacated. He is offered it at the end of the year and accepts it humbly.

    1885 | After the head of the department is vacated, Stephen is offered the position and takes it. His mother begins to urge him to find a wife.
    STRONG-WILLED | Stephen holds tight to his beliefs and cannot be persuaded to give them up easily. He especially holds tight to his traditional values, specifically on subjects such as blood purity.

    AMBITIOUS | Like most stereotypical Slytherins, Stephen has carried his ambitions his entire life and has climbed his way up the occupational ladder. While he never needed to work due to his position as the first son and his heavy inheritance, his political ambitions lead him to take up a position in the Ministry of Magic.

    CONFORMIST | Stephen likes to be normal. He has a strong disdain for those he considers eccentric and wishes everyone would stick to societal standards. Save for his occupation choice in his earlier years—working for the Spirit Division—Stephen hasn't done anything that anyone would consider "out of the ordinary".

    ARROGANT | Though this trait is much harder to spots in his words than say his ambition, it still exists. Stephen is proud of his position as first son and his position in the Ministry and tends to dismiss anyone he considers below himself, save for those he considers his social equals.

    TRADITIONAL | On a political level, Stephen is conservative and traditional. He has beliefs that women shouldn't be able to duel and that there should be a strict separation between the muggle and wizarding world, which causes him to clash with the current minister and his opinions. At the same time, though, he does respect opinions other than his owns and tolerates the progressive movement that seems to be going on within his community, even if he does not agree with it.

    — Stephen is a ENTP.
    — His amortentia is sugar cookies and lemon zest.
    — His patronus is a spotted hyena.
