    Appearance: Standing at five feet ten inches, Dory boasts a mostly slender build. He has some muscle tone to him but would never be considered bulky nor lanky. He prefers simple suits when it comes to his dress, disliking anything overly bold or eye catching. His hair is a dark brown and he can often be seen with a bit of scruff on his face in a matching hue as well. His eyes are a lighter brown and tend to match his always smiling persona. He is right handed.
    1864: Dorian Gareth Fisk is born, the fifth son of the Fisks. His middle name comes from Idylls of the King, the book his mother had been reading at the time of his birth. It isn’t long before he’s nicknamed Dory, something much easier for the youngest Fisks to say.
    1866: Nemo is born. Though only two, Dory is quite fascinated with the newest addition to the Fisk family.
    1868: Zelda is born and Dory is even more fascinated over the addition, understanding it a little more now that he's older.
    1869: With Zelda mobile, Dory grows quite fascinated with the crawling infant and tends to drag Nemo along with him when he deems it is their turn to "babysit." When Zelda almost crawls off a cot in the nursery, Dory shows his first signs be levitating her off of it and onto the ground so she can crawl instead.
    1873: The troublesome trio, Dory, Nemo and Zelda, go off on one of their “epic” adventures and wind up stealing a neighbor’s canoe and take it out on a nearby pond. It doesn’t go over well, as to be expected, but Zelda shows her first signs of magic and save the trio from doom. At least, the doom of the pond. They’re obviously reprimanded for their adventure but it goes down as a favorite of Dory’s memories.
    1874: Katia marries.
    1875: Dory leaves for Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff! Katia has first baby and it is rather exciting!
    1876: Katia has second baby. Still exciting but not to the extent of the first.
    1877: Dory adds Ancient Studies and Ancient Ruins to his schedule. Marlena marries.
    1878: Marlena has her first child.
    1879: Dory is named Prefect! Katia has a third child.
    1880: Dory sits his OWLs and does well enough on them. His terrible memory making it hard to get perfect scores even if it’s what he strives for. He eventually decides to drop Astronomy, Charms, and Herbology. Xena is engaged and Dory couldn’t be happier for her. During the summer, he begins interning in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement with aspirations of becoming a lawyer.
    1881: Dory spends his summer interning once again and then gets a letter saying he has been made Head Boy! Xena’s engagement is ended and Dory feels for her though he’s oblivious to the reasonings why. He’d be a shoulder for her to cry on though he doubts she’d take him up on it even if he should offer.
    1882: Dory graduates with better scores than before and continues interning in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. He’d promoted to a clerk just before the holidays. Julian loses his leg in a work accident and ends up moving to Hogsmeade to pursue a career as a novelist.
    1883: Dory becomes a lawyer and he couldn’t be more excited over it! Yet another Katia baby...
    1884: The laughing plague strikes and not without taking its toll on the Fisk Family. Delia contracts the disease and dies, leaving the family in a bit of chaos for a time. Dory is noticeably distraught but does his best to bring his family together as opposed to letting little riffs destroy them more than the death already had.
    1886: Dory’s working on making a known name for himself as a lawyer, one that doesn’t’ revolve around his massive amounts of notebooks with millions of different notes that always seem to end up left all over the place. His desk and obvious need for the notes only proving he has yet to grow out of his disorganized and forgetful ways. Katia has twins and as much as Dory loves his sister and the many nieces and nephews she’s brought into the world, he silently hopes she’s done.

    Personality: Charismatic. Mediator. Scatterbrained. Forgetful. Kind. Generous. Intelligent. Political.
