    In Character

    Nicknames: Answers Exclusively to Dodger

    Current Age: 25
    Race:  House-Elf
    Occupation: Thief
    Reputation: 1
    Residence: London

    Appearance: Dodger looks very typical for a house elf he has a scrawny starveling frame. He is about 3 feet tall with very long fingers typical of his kind. He stands in a manner which makes him look even smaller than he is with hunched shoulders and a tight frame as though his head is too heavy for his body. He wears a childs frock coat and a ragged dress shirt that trails along the ground when he walks. He has large elfen ears and a long thin nose. He also wears his old masters bowler hat. 


    Born into a family of house elves in service to a family of high born wizards. Both of his parents served the family well and happily. Dogious and his siblings are treated rather coldly by the family and are given related and rather peculiar names, so wizards could identify which 'breed stock' the young house elves were from. 

    At the age of 4 He was 'stolen' from the family...but not exactly. He was won from them in a game of cards, even if the card game might have been a cheat slightly. His new master was Feligor Rooks, a con artist and thief, who had scammed his way into a high stakes game and had cleaned out the young heir of the family who had wagered one of the expensive house elves in lieu of anymore cash. 

    Feligor began to teach the young elf how to steal and gave him orders that involved relieving others of their property. He found over time that he rather enjoyed it. He spent the next number of years stealing everything and anything Feligor asked of him.  Discovering, and indeed developing a rather malicious streak in the young house elf. 

    When Dodger was 18, Feligor was arrested by Aurors, and was presumed killed in an escape attempt from Azkahban. Technically free, Dodger did not think he wanted a new family and has remained a free elf ever since, stealing everything and anything he needed to survive, working with a myriad of shadey characters, and dodgy groups over the years as suited his purpose. 

    Personality: Greedy, selfish, cowardly, cruel, inquisitive, curious-minded
