    Elijah Urquart
    In Character
    Full Name: Elijah William Urquart
    Nicknames: --
    Birthdate: December 5th, 1874
    Current Age: 11
    Occupation: Incoming First Year
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Somewhere in the English countryside
    Hogwarts House: TBD
    Wand: TBD
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Upper Class
    Melchior Urquart, Father [1840-1884]—A distant but indulgent present who never hesitated to buy Elijah anything he wanted. Perished in the plague.

    Jacqueline Urquart née Wilde, Mother [1852-1884]—Elijah’s mother was the first (and, he insists, only) woman he ever loved and he misses her more than he cares to admit. Perished in the plague.

    Gabriel Urquart, Brother [1880]—As the last standing member of his immediate family, Elijah is terribly protective of and kind towards Gabriel.

    Gaylord Urquart, Grandfather [1802-1879]—Was murdered, and his death remains an unsolved mystery. Sometimes Elijah finds the matter dreadfully interesting, but most of the time he forgets about it.

    Iphigenia Urquart née Goyle [1821]—Elijah is glad Grandmother has Uncle Caspar and his love life to distract her now.

    @Caspar Urquart, Uncle & Guardian [1843]—Elijah’s uncle is not nearly so accommodating as his parents were; while part of the boy respects him for this, most of him finds it obnoxious.
    — Olivia Urquart née Burke, Aunt [1855-1873]
    — @Honoria Urquart née Lestrange, formerly Yaxley, Aunt [1850]
    — @Nigel Yaxley, Step-Cousin [1869]
    — @Katherine Yaxley, Step-Cousin [1872]
    — Simon Yaxley, Step-Cousin [1874]

    Davis, Hedgehog [“1878”]—Was originally Davis the footman. No one questioned why Elijah insisted on naming his new pet after the missing boy.

    Various disowned relations, including the Minister of Magic and his bff, @Sebastian Urquart.
    Elijah stands at an average height for a lad his age, four feet and eleven inches when he begins at Hogwarts. Light brown hair tops his head in a mop of loose curls. Most notable are his eyes—Elijah suffers from heterochromia, leaving him with one blue iris and one green. He wears typical clothing for his station and is right-handed.
    1874 | Elijah is the first child born to Melchior and Jacqueline Urquart. His maleness elates both parents, paving the way for a rather spoiled upbringing.

    1878 | Elijah’s first act of magic sees him turn a footman into a hedgehog. No one witnesses this, and few questions are asked when he spontaneously seems to have a pet hedgehog.

    1879 | His grandfather dies and his father inherits. Changing his mourning suit to something more brightly colored is his first ‘official’ act of magic, and he is rewarded with a quidditch figurine and a bag of sweets.

    1880 | Gabriel is born.

    1884 | The entire household contracts the plague. Elijah and Gabriel recover, and so does Grandmother in spite of the fact that she’s old. Mother and Papa do not. The trio move in with Elijah’s uncle Caspar; he is unenthused. His other uncle is made Minister of Magic, but he’s never met the man #so.

    1885 | Elijah meet’s his uncle’s friend Mrs. Yaxley, and also her son Simon who he promptly decides will become his lackey someday.

    1886 | REJOICE! Elijah receives his invitation to Hogwarts—naturally—and eagerly obtains his school supplies.

    Detailed later. Honest.
