    Yarrow Macnair
    In Character
    Full Name: Yarrow Seth Macnair
    Nicknames: --
    Birthdate: 10th of July, 1868
    Current Age: 19
    Occupation: Head of the Centaur Liaison Office, aka a fancy way of saying that he's a Beast Division employee
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: Hard, 14'', redwood and dragon heartstring
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Upper Class
    Eustance Macnair, father (1834-1887)
    Mariana Macnair nèe Lestrange, mother (1840)
    Valerian Macnair, brother (1859-1884)
    Valerian had a bastard daughter, Marigold Thorne, who was presented as a random distant cousin. Both she and her father perished in the plague/fire of 1884.
    Agrimony Macnair, half-brother (1864-1885)
    Betony Macnair, half-brother (1864-1885)
    Unbeknown to the public (and Yarrow) the twins weren't actually Eustace's children. Mariana lead them to their deaths after Valerian's death, seeing that one of them would be the next "logical" heir for Eustace.
    Germander Macnair, brother (1870)
    Sage Macnair, brother (1872)
    Mandragora Macnair, sister (1885-1885)

    Tatiana Lestrange, first cousin; ward of the Macnair family (1866)

    Gretchen Lestrange, cousin; betrothed (1874)
    Yarrow stands at five feet and nine inches. He has a set of dark blue eyes, porcelain skin and a messy, raven coloured hair. Yarrow was never concidered attractive, but there is still something charming about the way he holds himself. He always has a cold expression on his face, which makes potential friends shy away from him. He is ambidextrous, but he prefers to use his right hand. His wardrobe is consisted of darker colours.
    1868. Yarrow Seth Macnair was born on a hot July morning. He wasn't a very social child and never grew close to any of his siblings; Valerian and the twins were too "old" and Germander and Sage too "young". Germander was the siblings closest in age to him so they were naturally paired together but their personalities crashed too much. Overall, Yarrow was the sort of asshole child who only really hanged out with other asshole children.

    1879 . Yarrow is sorted into the Slytherin house. He keeps to ther upper class, pureblood circles. Many of his friends are in fact his cousins etc.

    1882.  In his fourth year, Yarrow joins the Slytherin Quidditch team as a beater. He also becomes involved with a classmate, Miss Fflur Hopkins, a lower class girl in the same year and house as him.

    1883. Yarrow returns for his fifth year as a prefect. In December, he loses his virginity with Fflur.

    February, 1884. After a false pregnancy scare, Yarrow does what he thinks best for him and breaks things with Fflur. She then writes to his mother, who is furious to find out about his "affair". Yarrow swears an Unbreakable Vow to marry his intended when she comes of age and, if something happens to her, to not marry someone his parents wouldn't consent to.

    July 10th, 1884. Valerian is killed by the Laughing Plague. On Yarrow's birthday. BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER.


    February of 1885. The twins are lead to their death by Mariana, though nobody is aware of that. Instead, everyone thinks of it as a tragic incident. Their death makes Yarrow his father's heir, which pleases the boy immensely.

    June, 1886. Yarrow graduates from Hogwarts. He doesn't really have any career aspirations, except to do something cool sounding, especially now that he's his fathers heir. His important cousins find him a position in the Department of Magical Co-Operation.

    July, 1887. Yarrow is fired from the Department of International Magical Co-Operation after he talks back to his superior. He's lucky that he has powerful relatives, who find him a job in the Beast Division. He's the "Head" of the Centaur Liaison Office. A more ambitious and hard-working person would be mortified to be diminished to that position, but Yarrow doesn't care for work and he likes the sound of being a 'Head' of something, even if it's an office as unimportant as his.

    August, 1887. Eustace is supposedly murdered by a maid. Yarrow feels like he's set for life.
    —  Yarrow is very much a selfish asshole. The one person he cares about most is himself. This is why he wasn't particularly crushed by the deaths of his older brothers. The fact that they were never very close aside, their deaths were beneficial for him, so that outweighed the fact that they were his brothers.

    — Unspurpisingly, Yarrow enjoys material things. Becoming his father's heir was the best thing that could have possibly happened to him. If he could, he'd quite happily live the life of a Gentleman of leisure, drinking wine all day and surrounded by whores.

    — Yarrow would like to live a lazy life, but he knows it's not possible. At least not yet. He knows when he needs to be hard-working and he can be quite good at it. UPDATE AS OF 1887: Any hopes of Yarrow trying hard to do something meaningful with his life died along with his father.

    — Yarrow has a knack for poetry. He doesn't really do it as much as he did it in the past, though.

    — He can be a lot nicer than he appears to be. In fact, to his friends and generally people that don't stand on his way to something, he can be quite nice.

    — Yarrow's patronus takes the form of a stoat.
