    Appearance: 
    Standing at five foot seven inches, the boy still has a bit of growing left in him, he host a tall and slender frame that appears almost malnutrition, the result of a few too many meals gone cold as he sits absorbed in a book or some form of blueprints, forgetting to eat. His dark hair hangs slightly long as if he has forgotten to get it cut, long enough for the locks to start to wave. A strong face, his bone structure is prominent however his face isn't particularly hollow. He tends to dress in plain, unassuming clothes that are nice enough to look his place but not to draw unnecessary attention and tends to stick to blacks and very dark blues. He is left handed but was schooled to use his right because #lefthandsaren'tcoolnow.
    History: 
    YEAR OF 1871 | During the later part of the year, another son is born to Eustice and Mariana Macnair, this one a legitimate son, and he proves to be a fairly quiet son.
    YEAR OF 1872 | The youngest Macnair son is born, and he is often dressed as femininely as possible. His oldest brother is off to school and is sorted into Ravenclaw.
    YEAR OF 1875 | His uncle is placed in jail, and one of his two cousins is taken in - the female one, to make up for his mother has no daughter. The twins are off to school and are both in Gryffindor. His uncle, Klaus passes away.
    YEAR OF 1877 | Tatiana is off to Hogwarts and was sorted into Slytherin and his mother displeased on losing her persudo daughter.
    YEAR OF 1878 | The Macnairs move to Hogsmeade.
    YEAR OF 1879 | Yarrow is off to school and is sorted into Slytherin and Valerian graduates. He shows his first signs of magic late by levitating a book he could not reach. His grandfather passes away.
    YEAR OF 1882 | The twins graduate, his mother is drafted for the Hogsmeade trials and was afterward was held prisoner by muggles and not returned till August. Even though his mother had always been distant, this period in which she is missing makes Germander realize he actually cares and become more of a momma's boy. Another Uncle passes away, Sebastian. It is revealed that his eldest brother had a bastard daughter. His mother discovered that his father had a mistress who had borne a daughter. His mother ran off the woman and bastard. She then killed the mother of Valerian's bastard's mother who he had run away with. The daughter was set up as a ward, renamed and obliviated. Not that he knows any of this baby drama.
    YEAR OF 1883 | He learns via letter that his mother was almost murdered and he writes home, panicked.
    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1883 - 1884 | He receives his letter and is off to Hogwarts where he is sorted into Ravenclaw. Starting from the beginning he wholeheartedly enjoys his schooling and works hard. He isn't too social though he does form a few friends and follows Yarrow's lead and tends to only socialize with only other purebloods and upper-class people when he does actually socialize. 
    YEAR OF 1884 | Yarrow is caught sleeping around with a lower class girl and was forced to take an Unbreakable vow to prevent him from doing as Valerian. The Laughing Plague strikes his mother ill and kills Valerian.  A few days later a fire spreads through Hogsmeade, destroying their home and killing Valerian's daughter, Marigold. They do not rebuild.
    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1884 - 1885 | His youngest brother starts school and is sorted into Slytherin. Germander breaks his wand halfway through the first term by accidentally sitting on it.
    YEAR OF 1885 | His mother finally gives birth to a daughter and while he is happy for her, she does not live longer than a year. They twins are killed in an unfortunate 'accident' with Quintapeds. 
    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1885 - 1886 | Yarrow graduates. Germander develops a fascination with language and starts to challenge himself to learn as many languages as he can on top of his classes. He takes on Ancient Runes and Arithmancy as his third-year electives. 
    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1886 - 1887 | His fourth year goes smoothly with a disturbing lack of family drama.
    SUMMER OF 1887 | When he thought that the year had been oddly quiet, he should have known it just hadn't come. The Wizarding World Market incident occurs, taking the life of his Aunt Olivia Pendergast. Not soon after Mrs. Rosalind Beaumont, a cousin, and daughter of his recently deceased aunt passed away as well, taking with her her new born daughter. The same day his father is murdered by his mother though she passes the blame off onto a member of the staff, a Miss Ann Jessop.
    Personality: 
    intelligent . quite . curious . narrow-minded.
    passive. impressionable. polite. pawnish. self-interested.
    Miscellaneous:
    • his patronius will be of a black swan
    • his amortentia scent is of stone, old paper, and steal
    • boggart is of being outcasted or publicly shamed from his family due to disappointing his mother
