    Isaiah Triggs
    In Character
    Full Name: Isaiah Samson Triggs
    Nicknames: None
    Birthdate: September 9, 1870
    Current Age: 15
    Occupation: Student
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Hogsmeade
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: Mahogany, 11", Flexible, Unicorn Tail
    Blood Status: Muggleborn
    Social Class: Upper
    Willis Triggs Father, b.1841
    Elsa Triggs neé Westernra Mother, b.1848
    Abigail Triggs sister, b.1867
    Ezekiel Triggs brother, b.1868
    Jacob Triggs brother, b.1868
    Leah Triggs sister, b.1872
    Matthew Triggs brother, b.1875
    Joseph Triggs brother, b.1877

    Ulysses Westernra Uncle, b.1845

    Appearance: Standing at an even five foot seven, Isaiah isn’t exactly deemed overly tall. It is quite possible that he will remain at such a height as well, though he could potentially grow another inch or two in the coming years. He has a slender build with some muscle definition, mostly in his arms, but would never be considered overly muscular. His skin is actually quite pale, though not in a sickly sort of look and more of a porcelain doll sort of hue. His hair is a sandy blond hue, kept shorter on the sides and longer on the top. He often sports a “just rolled out of bed” sort of look in his hair though often times he’s lucky to have even gone to bed. His eyes are a light blue in color and always seem to be watching as he frequently tries to simply take everything in around him. He prefers muggle clothing, nice suits with crisp white shirts or simple pants with a basic shirt. He’s had a hard time adjusting to wizarding robes and really only wears such while at school. He uses his right hand in all manners of life.
    1870: Isaiah is born, the fourth child and third son. He’s a quiet and bright child, with already pale locks, soft and downy. Much like his siblings before, his zealously religious father enforces a biblical name.
    1872: A sister is born, Leah. Isaiah is too young to really comprehend her birth but there’s a strange connection between the two from the get go and it leaves Elsa feeling a little uneasy.
    1875: Another brother is born, Matthew.
    1877: Another brother and final child for the Triggs family is born, Joseph.
    1880: At ten years old, it becomes quite clear that Isaiah takes after his uncle, Ulysses, with the magical gene. Over the years, strange things had happened around Isaiah, particularly when he was upset, but when he blows up his father’s glass in his hand it all goes terribly bad. The very religious man explodes him (though not literally), and begins to make comments of throwing Isaiah out and disowning him. He claims it is the devil’s work and that something is horribly wrong with his son. Elsa frantically writes a letter to Ulysses and the next thing Isaiah knows, he’s being shipped off to live with an uncle he hardly even knows.
    1882: He leaves for this magical school his uncle Ulysses talks to him about. His intelligent and inquisitive mind but independence and confidence make the decision hard for the Sorting Hat. Unsure between Ravenclaw and Gryffindor, it finally settles on Gryffindor. He has a hard time mingling in with the rest of his classmates though, still feeling entirely out of his element after living in a religion focused muggle home. Just before leaving for school, another frantic letter is received about how Leah is like Isaiah. It isn’t long before his sister is in Ulysses’s home as well.
    1884: Entering his third year, he adds Arithmancy, Ancient Studies and Ancient Ruins.
    1886: Isaiah is quite excited to go back to school as he'll be sitting his OWLs at the end of the school year. His thoughts clearly focused on just academics. But what he has in smarts and dedication, he sorely lacks in social skills.
    Personality: Intelligent. Perceptive. Quiet. Confident. Independent. Inquisitive.
