    the women that married into the Whitledge family ended up following the crazy naming schemes that Heartwarming proposed with her first children.
    While Handsome couldn't be considered to the modern equivalent of "hot" with chiseled features and smoldering eyes, he has a soft, charming appearance and a sweet smile. He stands at five feet, seven inches tall, and weighs about average for his height and build.

    He has chestnut brown hair, light brown eyes and a slightly crooked (yet totally cute) nose. Outside of school, he dresses in muggle clothing appropriate for his age and class. He is left-handed.
    1869 | Hattie Whitledge gives birth to a set of twins as her first children and subsequently names them Handsome and Cupcake. While Louis tries to get her to give them normal names, he is overruled.

    1871 | While Handsome is far too young to realize what's happening, his mother gives birth to another child—a daughter—whom she names Sweetie. After attempting to assert his authority in the naming of his child the second time around, Louis gets a figurative middle finger and a threat of no more children. Let's just say he gives up.

    1872 | Darling is born. Handsome takes more of an interest in his newborn sister this time around, but eventually dubs her as an annoyance and the source of his lack of attention.

    1873 | Cupcake shows her first sign of magic. Handsome is not pleased and ventures out to find his first sign of magic, but to no avail.

    1874 | Honey is born. Handsome begins wishing for a brother.

    1875 | Alas, a brother is born! By this time, Handsome is old enough tor realize his mother's silly naming practices and almost giggles to death when his brother is named "Knight in Shining Armor".

    1877 | The muggles discover magic and the Whitledge family flees to Hogsmeade. While Handsome is immediately upset by the sudden movement, he feels more secure surrounded by his own kind.

    1879 | The time approaches for the Whitledge family to prepare to send their children to Hogwarts in the coming months, but Handsome fails to show a sign of magic! His mother begins wondering if she's birthed a squib. Handsome becomes prone to anxiety attacks.

    1880 | Handsome's anxiety is walking through the high grass. A wild first sign of magic appears! It uses broken glass and is super effective!

    1881 | Handsome begins Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor. He finds a passion for Defence Against the Dark Arts and Transfiguration, but quickly finds that subjects that require heavy memorization of factual knowledge like Astronomy and History of Magic are not his forte.

    1883 | Handsome adds Ghoul Studies, Care of Magical Creatures, and Ancient Runes to his schedule. He finds that he perhaps shouldn't have added so many classes to his schedule, but works his hardest to succeed.

    1884 | The plague strikes Hogsmeade and kills Handsome's father. His fathers will states that he will receive 1/4 of his inheritance upon graduating Hogwarts, and the other 3/4 when he turns twenty one. The fire then proceeds to burn down their Wellingtonshire home. They pack up their things and move to Irvingly.

    1886 | Honey and Knight in Shining Armor are set to enter Hogwarts in September, meaning all the Whitledge children will be at school at the same time! Handsome's mother takes up a job as a healer.
    SWEET | There have been times where others have suggested that "Charming" might have been a better name for the boy. He often goes out of his way to please others, treats them with kindness and warmth, and tries to assure that everyone goes to bed with a smile on their face.

    FUNNY | What's the best way to lighten the mood? Crack a joke, of course! His ambitions to make others happy doesn't limit themselves to making others smile—he likes to make them laugh as well!

    BRAVE & DARING | Handsome isn't afraid to take risks and stand up for what he believes is right. He will go against the popular opinion and use what charisma is have to speak his opinion and bring others to his side. Though he was prone to anxiety earlier in his life, he's overcome his fears by learning to embrace the unknown.

    PROPER | He's a firm believer in propriety, and anything outside that realm will make him feel uncomfortable. Whether it's an unfamiliar person addressing him by his name, or speaking of suggestive topics, it's bound to make the Gryffindor uncomfortable.

    STUBBORN | What would a Gryffindor be without the trademark stubbornness? Handsome doesn't like to budge when it comes to his opinions and can sometimes come off as narrow-minded. He doesn't like when others tell him he's wrong, but at the same time he's never reached the point where he gets downright nasty.

    GUILT-RIDDEN | If something goes wrong and Handsome was responsible or a part of it (especially if it ends up hurting someone's feelings!), he often takes responsibility and guilt follows. While he's not a perfectionist by any means, he doesn't like letting others down and tries to live up to high expectations he puts on himself.
