    plus others
    The first thing most would notice about him is his height - staanding abnormally tall, he measures in at five foot eleven inches making his prescense a notable one. While logically, he would have grown in porportion to those smaller than him, he instead seemed to only grow up and remain realitvely narrow and is often discribed as lanky. His face is just full enough that you can see hints of his cheekbones, but his face is no where near hollow. Light brown hair hair is kept fairly neat though some days he does leave it a little messy. Blue eyes accent his pale skin. He is right handed and tends to wear fairly plain clothes.
    YEAR OF 1862 | The first son and child of Charles and Dorothy Scimgeour is born and named Julius Markus - because you always need to name your son after a guy who helped distroy a republic and build an empire. Markus, well his middle name had no rhyme or reason. 

    YEAR OF 1864 | At the age of two, he was signed up for the Flit Institue's preschool program.

    YEAR OF 1678 | At five, the little boy shows his first signs of magic by setting a toy on fire when he was startled by a loud noise.

    YEAR OF 1868 | Well things when well for the first six years and seemed to go well this year as well. The second and third children of her parents are born, twin daughters and all seems fine until one day the nanny doesn't quite pay enough attention and one of the two girls are kidnapped. He is temporarily pulled for Flint in the drama. Searches were sent out, but unknown to the family, Annabelle had already been moved to muggle society.

    YEAR OF 1870 | The last child, and second son is born to the family - Joseph. At this point, everyone has grown to speak of Belle as if she has passed away and any hope of finding her has been placed aside.

    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1873 - 1874 | The first son starts his sprint at Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw for his intellect, though everyone expected him to be sorted into Hufflepuff.

    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1875 - 1876 | For his elective, he takes on COMC.

    YEAR OF 1877 |The Scrimgeour family moves to the newly established Hogsmeade.

    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1877 - 1878 | He sits his O.W.L.s.

    SUMMER OF 1878 | He takes on an internship with the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, solidifying his decision to in some regards mimic his father in a career path.

    SUMMER OF 1879 | He takes the internship once more.

    SCHOOL YEAR OF 1879 - 1880 | He study for his N.E.W.T.s and passes them all with flying colors.

    YEAR OF 1880 | After his schooling, he goes straight into Auror Training Program. Everything he had come to accept as a part of his life is torn apart when Ari writes home that she found another girl who looks just like her - if not a bit thinner and less healthy looking as if she had been living in the lower class. It is revealed that she isn't crazy and that this look alike is Annabelle, who they had long since accepted as dead. She leaves the lower class family that raised her and comes to live with her birth family again, tearing up the dynamics they had established. He shares to Annabelle that he doesn't hold his family's blood prejudice to make her more comfortable. 

    YEAR OF 1883 | He graduates and starts working as an auror.

    YEAR OF 1886 | After three of working as an auror he transfers into the Investigators trainee program as of the end of May. 

    YEAR OF 1887 | He finishes the training program and is made a full investigator. His sister graduate school.
