    Thiago Caldiera
    In Character
    Full Name: Thiago Goyle de Caldiera
    Nicknames: mehhh
    Birthdate: August 9th 1864
    Current Age: 22 years
    Occupation: Alchemist
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Olivia Pendergast's House [Hogsmeade]
    Hogwarts House: N/A, attended Castelobruxo [For viewers at home, he'd be a Ravenclaw]
    Wand: 10", Cedrela Wood, Dragon Heartstring, Whippy
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Upper 
    Family: Otávio Caldiera — Father
    Elinor Goyle — Mother
    Lygia ____ née Caldiera — Cousin/Half-Sister
    Doroteia d’Santos née Caldiera — Sister
    Verissimo Caldiera — Brother
    Efigenia Caldiera - Sister
    Sergio Caldiera — Brother

    Through the Goyles, Thiago is related to every pureblood British family under the sun. Or so it appears to him.

    Appearance: Thiago takes almost exactly after his father. He stands at 5'10", with a large build but an easy, unassuming posture. Thiago's eyes are dark but quick to crinkle up when he smiles, which is often. He has dark hair that he tends to run his hands through when he's working, and Thiago prefers to wear suits in natural colors, like green. Frequently, there are herbs or other alchemy ingredients shoved into his pockets.
    History: 1864: Thiago is born. He is his father's third child, but his mother's fifth -
    and her (living) older child is his cousin as well as his half-sibling. In a little over fifteen years, he'll think this is just a little bit weird.
    1869: One of Thiago's first memories that 'sticks' is of the birth of his sister. He is less than thrilled about this, but they come to be friends. His first sign of magic occurs late in the year, when he charms a non-magical plant outside of their home to bite his older brother.
    1871-1872: His half-sister debuts, which is something that Thiago cares little about seeing as he's seven. Eventually, Effy becomes his favorite/closest sibling.
    1875: Thiago's youngest brother, Sergio, is born. He would probably care more about this if he didn't get to go to school! Thiago begins to attend Castelobruxo, and excels in his studies, especially Potions and Herbology.
    1877: Verissimo finishes attending school & mother begins to take off to the continent with Sergio. Between the age gap and being at school, Thiago knows his youngest brother so little that he periodically forgets that Sergio exists.
    1879: Effy joins Thiago at Castelobruxo.
    1881: Thiago finishes his schooling and sets about training to be an Alchemist. He really is quite good at it, and publishes his first scientific study in a magical science magazine before the end of the year. It's clear to more or less everyone that Thiago is his father's favorite, a post he is more than happy to occupy.
    1882-1885: HURRAH, ALCHEMY!
    1886: Effy finishes her schooling and, in the coming months, starts to get... weird. They're no longer nearly as close as they were in childhood, so Thiago doesn't understand why until much later, thinking that his sister probably does have a secret suitor.
    1887: It turns out that EFFY WANTS TO FUCK A PORTRAIT OF THEIR DAD.
    Well, it's more complicated than that, but that's what Thiago extracts from the situation. Their mother is in an extended conniption, Effy is pitching a fit about her portrait lover, and they're no longer fashionable in South American society, which really puts a damper on Thiago's side-hobby of accidentally hitting on nerdy girls. :(
    They decide that they will drug Effy, bring her to England, and get her married. Thiago is responsible for the drugs, and so heads to the Pendergast home with Otavio and Effy. He is very not thrilled about this.

    Personality: Practical but easily-excited nerdy boy who likes alchemy and plants and wishes that his sister wasn't creepy and incestuous :(
