    Appearance:
    Yarrow stands at five feet nine inches. He has a set of dark blue eyes, a 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 dark colours and plain patterns.
    History:
    1868 | Yarrow Seth Macnair was born on a hot July morning. Seeing that he had no sibling close to his age, Yarrow turned to be a rather lonely child. He preferred to spend his time reading books in the huge library of his home, rather than play with his brothers. He tried to spend some time with Germander, but their personalities turned out to be way too different. Yarrow, at the age of nine, was sure that he would never find people to get along with. He was always cold with strangers, so it was hard for him to make friends.

    1879 | Just like everyone else in his family, Yarrow was sorted into the Slytherin house. Despite the fact that he had no friends back home, he quickly managed to make a lot of friends in the school. The Macnair boy tended to feel more comfortable around other pureblood boys, since he always tended to appear blood-purist to the muggleborn students. Truth to be told, Yarrow was always rather cold towards the muggleborns of Hogwarts, but that was mostly because he did not want to be seen with one when so many of his cousins were around the school. Yarrow always felt proud for being part in a large, ancient wizarding family, but sometimes he felt awkward to know that half of his classmates were in fact his cousins.

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

    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 off with Fflur. She then writes to his mother, who is furious to find out about his affair. Yarrow then makes an Unbreakable Vow to assure her that he won't ever elope with a woman other than his betrothed. Because of that, he has to marry his betrothed before she comes of age.

    July 10th, 1884 | Valerian dies due to 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.
    Personality:
    — 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.

    — Yarrow has a knack for poetry. He doesn't really do it as much as he did it in the past, but he still often writes poems in his diary.

    — 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.

    — Yarrow's boggart is him, breaking his Unbreakable Vow.
