    • Wields his wand with his right hand.
    History:
    1864 — Nine months after their short-notice wedding, William and Eugenia Stokey welcome their first son, a boy named Newton. Though both parents are worried about the poor, crime-filled environment their son will grow up in, they're excited to have a child to call their own.

    1868 — The Stokey family welcomes a second child, this time a girl named Ismene. While Newton is too young to understand what the addition of a child will mean to his family, he is aware that he's getting less attention than before.

    1869 — Newton's first sign of magic appears.

    1871 — After giving birth to their first child and subsequently dealing with financial issues, Newton's paternal aunt and her family move into the Stokey's small two-room home. Newt's bed is taken by his aunt and uncle, leaving him to sleep on a pile of sheets and blankets on the floor.

    1872 — Alexander, the third and final child born to William and Eugenia, is born. After his birth, the adults in the household decide that they have enough money between the four of them to rent a slightly larger home in the London slums. They find themselves situated in a three room home, with the adults sharing one room and the children sharing another.

    1876 — Newt receives his acceptance letter to Hogwarts and attends in September. He's sorted into Hufflepuff after a moment of the Sorting Hat's contemplation. Newt finds that practical magic is not his strength; he does, however, excel in subjects that don't require the use of a wand.

    1877 — At the end of his first year, Hufflepuff wins the quidditch house cup! This inspires him to try out for the quidditch team his second year. With a combination of luck and natural ability, he's able to join the team! He spends the summer sweeping shops in an attempt to earn his family more money. When September comes again, Newt seeks out tutors for subjects requiring practical magic; by the holidays, he's found that his wand work has improved. Newt receives his own broom (albeit a cheap one) for Christmas.

    1878 — Newt adds Ancient Studies, Care of Magical Creatures, and Muggle Studies to his class schedule. He finds comfort in the fact that few activities in this class require him to use magic. He manages to pull straight Os with the exception of his Potions class, in which he attained an E.

    1881 — Newt spends much of his year focusing on his classes, though he does put much effort into his extracurricular activities. Newt takes his OWLs in the spring, and Hufflepuff manages to pull through with the quidditch house cup.

      ANCIENT STUDIES — O
      ASTRONOMY — O
      CARE OF MAGICAL CREATURES — O
      CHARMS — E
      DEFENCE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS — E
      HERBOLOGY — O
      HISTORY OF MAGIC — O
      MUGGLE STUDIES — O
      POTIONS — A
      TRANSFIGURATION — E
    Following his success on his OWLs, Newt decides that he wishes to continue his education. He is offered a partial scholarship for his success on his exams, and his parents scrape together the rest of the funds to pay for his schooling.

    He decides to continue with the following NEWT classes: Herbology, Defence Against the Dark Arts, History of Magic, Astronomy, and Ancient Studies.

    1883 — Newt is chosen to be the Hufflepuff quidditch team captain.

    1883 — After giving up his emotional health to study for his NEWTs, Newt begins to wonder whether his name was meant to taunt him. He takes his exams in the spring and receives the following scores:

      ANCIENT STUDIES — O
      ASTRONOMY — O
      DEFENCE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS — E
      HERBOLOGY — O
      HISTORY OF MAGIC — O
    Following his graduation, Newt is recruited to play for Puddlemere United as a chaser. While his parents had hoped that he'd go into a more lucrative career, he's perfectly happy to play quidditch for a living.

    1885 — Newton's grandfather becomes ill and is unable to work. This means that he and his wife are unable to pay rent; displaced, the duo find themselves living with their children for the meantime. Even after Newt's grandfather recovers, the entire family stays living together.

    1886 — The construction of a safer, more comfortable lower class neighborhood means that the Stokey family can find more happiness. The family moves into a five bedroom home, with all the adults' incomes contributing to the rent. While still not having complete privacy, Newt appreciates the fact that he no longer has to share a room with his sister.
    Personality:
    Charming. Chivalrous. Hardworking. Kind. Playful. Teasing. Flirtatious. Modest. Nonjudgmental. Emotional. Extroverted. Protective. Respectful.
