    Thaddeus Pettigrew
    In Character
    Full Name: Thaddeus Ormond Pettigrew
    Nicknames: Thad
    Birthdate: April 3, 1859
    Current Age: 27
    Occupation: Assistant Head of Department of Magical Education
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: London
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: Vine, 10.5", rigid, unicorn tail
    Blood Status: Pure
    Social Class: Upper
    Henrich Pettigrew father [1831-1884]
    Susan Pettigrew neé Carrow mother [1838]
    Thom Pettigrew brother [1855] and family
    Jane Prewett neé Pettigrew sister [1856-1883] and family
    James Pettigrew twin brother [1859]
    Appearance: Tall and slender but not without a good bit of muscle. His appearances are actually quite surprising to some as he doesn’t appear to be the type to have a muscular sort of build. Though he does tend to fall on the more lean side opposed as to his brother but stands an inch taller at five foot six. His dirty blond hair is often something of a tousled mess though he often is seen sporting a hat that matches whatever simple suits he chooses to wear. He keeps his suits in pristine condition, not wanting to spend extra money on frivolous things. His eyes are hazel and he can be seen wearing a pair of spectacles when he’s reading on occasion. He's predominately right handed but can use his left when needed.
    1859: The twins are born with Thad making his debut first. He’s a quiet and observant thing that hardly makes a sound from the start.
    1864: Thad shows his first signs of magic by levitating his favorite nursery book off of a shelf he can’t reach down to himself.
    1866: Thom leaves for Hogwarts.
    1867: Jane leaves for Hogwarts.
    1870: The twins leave for Hogwarts and both are sorted into Ravenclaw.
    1872: Thad adds CoMC and Arithmancy to his schedule.
    1874: Without surprising anyone, Thad receives a letter naming him Prefect. He’s rather proud of himself though a bit hesitant with his brother being in the same house as him. Despite being rather shy and a bit withdrawn, he proves to be a rather observant Prefect and most learn not to take his quiet demeanor for granted.
    1875: It also comes as no surprise when he scores Os all across the board on his OWLs. And though he enjoyed all of his classes, he knows he must cut back on his schedule. He ends up dropping Astronomy and Charms. Jane marries this year as well.
    1877: Graduation and NEWTs. Once again, Os across the board. Thom moves out of the family home and into the newly founded town of Hogsmeade. Thad begins working in the Department of Magical Educaiton. Jane gives birth to twins.
    1881: Thom marries and James leaves. Thad isn't entirely sure what to do, feeling as though he's lost both his brothers in one fell swoop.
    1882: Two more nieces are born, one Thom’s and the other Jane’s.
    1883: Jane is lost giving birth to twins and Thom finally has his heir. The loss of his sister hits Thad quite hard, making him even more withdrawn into his work.
    1884: The horrible horrible plague hits. It leaves the Pettigrew back in mourning as it takes their father and almost their mother as well as Thom’s wife. The only bright spot in Thad’s life is his promotion to the Assistant Head of the department. He also rents out a flat in London after his father is laid to rest, finding it hard to remain in the family home without him.
    1886: Thad has done little by way of a social life and become something of a workaholic. He is, however, on track to a promotion to the head of the department. Should he continue on the path he is, he’ll be able to take the position as Head the following spring. James moves to London and is able to rent the flat above his own, the twins close again but not too close.

    Personality: Habitual. Analytical. Precise. Anxious. Kind. Gentle. Quiet. Shy.
