    Quote:Lanky and thin, he seems underfed with hollow cheeks and stick-thin limbs. He stands fairly tall at 5' 7", though he weighs slightly less than he should, barely coming in at 144 lbs. At such a thin state, one would think he might be fast, but he has very little muscle to him. His clothes, unless costume tailored to fit him, hang loose on his frame and unless, in school, he tends to wear high-quality suits with little personalization and simple colors that fit with whatever is fashionable rather than his own taste. He holds his wand with his left hand.

    A small child is born to James and Emmeline Rawlinson, their first born a son they call Morvard. He appears sickly, but due to a healer's help, he is able to survive.
    A second child is born to the Rawlinsons not long after, a daughter they name Margaret.
    Another son is born, Issac, a few years latter, and he is born in much better health than the older of his two siblings.
    The last child of the bunch, a little girl dubbed Isabel, joins the family, once more in ill health and the healer informs the family that her last pregnancy left Emmeline unable to concive again.
    Once more the first of the batch, seven-year-old Morvard is the first to display signs of magic, he dyes another child's hair blue - thankfully another wizarding child rather than a muggle.
    1880-1881 | First Year
    Morvard is off to Hogwarts where he is sorted into Ravenclaw.
    1881-1882 | Second Year
    Margaret joins her brother at Hogwarts and is sorted into --.
    1883-1884 | Fourth Year
    Issac joins the two others and is sorted into --. At this point, Isabel has yet to show any signs of magic and the family starts to fears she might just be a squib, believe that the ill pregnancy caused her not to inherit any magic.
    1884-1885 | Fifth Year
    The time comes for Isabel to receive her letter, though it never comes, leaving the family quite disappointed. Morvard, prompted by his father, applies for the Ravenclaw quidditch team and plays chaser.
