  • History:
    1871 — Tripper is born the fifth son of Fitzwilliam and Frieda Jameson after their attempt to produce a daughter. He receives very little attention from his parents from the time of his birth, with them choosing to spend only as much time is necessary with him. They soon begin trying for a daughter once more.

    1873 — Tripper's parents manage to finally produce a daughter. She is doted on by their mother, leaving the two-year-old Tripper jealous. He becomes a bit of an attention-seeker with the hopes of getting someone to notice him.

    1875 — He finally starts getting attention when odd things begin happening in his presence. His older brothers feel threatened by the strange displays and begin talking down to the four-year-old. His confidence is crushed by the bullying and he begins to live with the belief that merely being around his brothers means he's done something wrong.

    1878 — Tripper accidentally injures one of elder brothers with magic after an argument takes place between the two. He could not begin to describe the harshness and coldness his parents showed to him, and he definitely went to his room that night with burn marks from slashes across his side.

    1880 — After a very frightening magic-related incident, Tripper's parents send him off to live with his grandparents. Unlike his parents who rarely used violence against him, his grandparents firmly believe that they can beat the demons out of him. Tripper makes multiple attempts to run away from their home, but doing so only leads to more beatings and subsequent displays of magic in the heat of the moment.

    1881 — Tripper is sent back to his parents after his grandparents conclude that there is no remedy for ridding their grandchild of his oddness. The ten-year-old isolates himself in his bedroom for the majority of the day, avoiding his brothers like the plague. His younger sister is much nicer to him, but she still bends to his parents' assertion that there is something wrong with him.

    Summer, 1883 — The Jameson family receives a visit from a strange man who claims that Tripper is a wizard of all things. Though appalled by the revelation, his parents don't question the man's words. In their minds, anything to explain their son's strangeness is better than not knowing what's wrong with him at all. They allow him to attend Hogwarts under the condition that he not mention magic around the house.

    Fall, 1883 — Tripper goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor. While he's completely captivated with all of his classes, he finds some more interesting than others. He declares Potions, Flying, and Defence Against the Dark Arts to be his favorite, with Herbology being his least favorite. He tries out for quidditch but does not make the team.

    Summer, 1884 — Tripper manages to secure a summer with one of his school friends instead of going home.

    Fall, 1885 — Tripper adds Divination, Ancient Runes, and Care of Magical Creatures to his course load. All three prove to be entertaining additions to his schedule.

    Winter, 1887 — Tripper is given the position of Gryffindor beater halfway through the school's quidditch season after the previous player has to leave for some unknown reason.

    Summer, 1887 — Tripper prepares to enter his fifth year. While he spends the beginning of summer at home, he ends up in one of his friend's Hogsmeade home in July.
