Appearance:He stands at an oddly tall six feet, two inches. He has a strong, solid, well chisled body. His violet eyes seem to be piercing, and equal parts alluring and unnerving. He is left handed by birth, though ambidextrous by training. Both with his wand, quill, and instruments. He has long, thick black hair, and a face that seems almost chiseled. Some have even described him as being “pretty.” He tends to be found in one of his many suits, usually black or dark blue for the jacket and trousers, and red or white for the undershirt. He holds himself with a strong, graceful bearing.
History: He was born late at night in his family's home. That night was home to a large thunderstorm. All his life he has felt at peace, and inspired by the rain and lightning. AT the age of three, he was rumamging around in his father's belongings and drank a strange potion. It seemed to have no effect, except for his eyes changing to an odd shade of violet. When he was six years old he encountered a young woman playing the violin on the street. That day he found his love for music, and soon began taking violin lessons. As a belated birthday present, his mother bought him a simple violin. His musical style ended up on the more epic, haunting side of classical. He was bullied heavily for being so quiet, and so spent much of his time in his grandparent’s old library. He also began exercising very often, usually while coming up with stories and poetry. His life more or less went on like this, only interrupted by the births of his younger sisters, whom he adored. It was not until just before his fifth year at Hogwarts that something cracked the walls he had tried so hard to raise. His father, an Auror, was killed in the line of duty. He sacrificed himself to save his partner. It was never released what had led to his father’s death, but it hit him and his family hard. His mother soon became sick, and he himself was overcome by depression. His poetry became darker, and he spent more time in his room than normal, no longer eating healthily. He was in a daze as he boarded the Hogwarts Express for the fifth year. Sadly his family, being an offshoot could no longer afford to hold itself up without work, and became a middle class family. That summer he started putting out fliers offering lessons on singing, violin, and piano, so that he could support his family. Every summer since he continued, coming to master the techniques he taught, as well as new ones. By his seventh year he had also become proficient with the flute. He graduated, as with every other year, with all E's and O's, and had proven himself to be an excellent and gifted duelist, as one might expect from someone chosen by an Aspen wand. Over the course of his life, he also learned Italian, French, German, and Spanish. When he was nineteen he opened his own shop out of which to tutor, allowing his eldest sister to have the peace and quiet needed to nurse their mother. He taught his family for free, and charged the upper and middle class students a fair, but profitable price. He offered discounted, and sometimes free lessons to the lower class, which were of the same quality as the higher classes. As his business grew in students, he began purchasing instruments for donations to his most promising students of the lower class. While his music is still often dark and haunting after the loss of his father, the years have brought him hidden joys. He was proud of his sisters as they graduated one after another. leaving only the youngest in Hogwarts still. Elizabeth had graduated to become a mediwizard, surpassing the abilities of their mother, she had been a Hufflepuff. Rebecca has still not yet decided her carrer, ending her time as a Ravenclaw just last year. She Has often been found helping Damen at his shop. And Destiny, yet another Hufflepuff, excelled when dealing with magical creatures. Damen has begun learning spoken Japanese over the past two years, and is conversational in it. Another item he picked up, and learned to play during a brief visit to Italy was the ocarina. Which he found to produce some of the clearest and most beautiful notes.
Personality:Damen is very withdrawn, though polite and professional, he rarely speaks. A deep rooted sadness can often be seen in his eyes, though he never shows much emotion.
