    Appearance: Height: 5'6"

    1870: Xavier Phillip is born on a rather chilly November morning. Phillip rejoices as his first born is a son while Xavier’s mother dotes on him.
    1873: The twins are born. Xavier takes notice of it only because his mother isn’t able to dote on him quite as much. He clings to his father instead.
    1876: Xavier shows his first sign of magic by levitating a crawling twin away from his toys.
    1877: The Abbott’s decide to stick it out during the riots and upheaval of wizarding folk, the lower class family feeling as though they’re easily overlooked in their small home.
    1881: On his way home from work, Phillip is caught unawares by a group of back alley thieves. He doesn’t survive the encounter and leaves his wife a widow to tend three children on her own.
    1882: Just barely out of mourning the loss of his father, Xavier leaves for his first year at Hogwarts. He’s hesitant to leave his mother alone with the twins but she insists he needs to receive an education and nearly shoves him out the door.
    1884: The twins go off to Hogwarts while their mother finally is able to pursue her dream of being an auror. After three years of trying, she is finally accepted into the Auror Training Program. Xavier adds Earth Magic and Care of Magical Creatures to his class list.
    1886: With the new year started, Xavier is rather focused on his studies. He’s always maintained rather good grades but he’s convinced he need to score amazing scores on his OWLs so that when his mother does achieve her goal of being an auror then ends up dying, he’ll be able to get a good job when he’s forced to take care of his younger siblings. Obviously, he hopes it won’t be the case but he’s never been the most optimistic of boys after the sudden death of his father. He would prefer to see school through his NEWTs as he’d like to be a healer but will settle on a mediwizard if need be. He just really hopes that won’t be the case.
    Personality: Smart. Stubborn. Vocal. Pessimistic. Wary. Distant.
