    Glen Kaur
    In Character
    Full Name: Glen Andronicus Kaur
    Nicknames: None
    Birthdate: November 12, 1867
    Current Age: 19
    Occupation: Carriage Driver/Errand Boy at the Sanditon Resort
    Reputation: 3
    Residence: The Attic of Sanditon Resort
    Hogwarts House: Unknown
    Wand: 11 inches, birch, phoenix feather core
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class:Lower
    Family: Mother -  Valencia Kaur, deceased
    Appearance: A metamorphagus, Glen can usually be found with short black hair, olive skin, and brown eyes. He prefers to be 5' 11", although his atrocious slouch usually makes him seem smaller. He weilds his wand with his right hand, but prefers to write with his left. He always wears a dark blue jacket over a clean is well-worn shirt, and his pants, while old, are kept in shape. He wears boots, which he stores his wand in when he's not using it. br>
    History: Born in Glasglow to an unmarried mother, Glen was raised in the slums. He worked in factories from a young age, and managed to get a job as a delivery boy for a mill once he was 13, and strong enough to carry sacks large of flour from place to place. His mother passed away when he was 17, and with nothing left tying him to Glasglow, he wandered off in hopes of something better. He found a job as a carriage driver at the Sanditon Resort, and has been working there two summers.
    Personality: Glen is generally jovial and teasing, but always respectful to those above his station, and to women of all stations. His mother raised him to be kind, always, and he does his best to follow her guidance. As a metamorphagus, he sometimes plays around with his appearance, and his gender is somewhat fluid, meaning he'll sometimes go for a lark on his breaks as a young girl.
    Sample Roleplay Post: Alé checked that her hair was properly tucked up before leaving her small office. Well, it wasn't an office; it was more of a small room with a chair and the card catalog, but it was quiet and seldom visited. She was barely two months into her job as Hogwarts Librarian, having been hired during winter break.

    She'd arrived to find the library in disarray; with no librarian for over 4 months, the charms meant to sort books into their proper spots had faded, and the card catalog was an absolute disaster. It had taken two weeks to set right.
    Grimacing slightly at the state she'd found her library in - she'd already begun to think of it as her own - Alé slipped nimbly through the shelves and opened the library doors, ready for the day to begin. To her surprise, there was already someone waiting to enter.
