    Appearance: A slender and starvling boy with a very pale complection which appears paler because of his very dark mop of hair.  He is a short boy for his age, at only 4ft,4.  he has pale blue eyes, that are watery and clouded.  He wears rather ornate and perhaps overly formal clothing, more suited to a much older male.  He is left handed, but has been taught to use his right.
    < b>History:

    Ebenezer and Lucretia Wilkes, were one of those arranged pureblood marriages, he was 27, and she was 18.  They were not in love but they had similar interests and motivations and understood their various duties to their families.  They were a companionable enough couple who were better friends than lovers.  They might have been rather happy to do their martial duties, create an heir and then never touch one another sexually again, but they were not that lucky.  Lucretia got pregnant almost immediately, and only 11 months after marrying she produced a son – baby Hubert – mission complete.  

    However, Hubert died in his crib less than 3 months later – the cause was unknown it was simply one of those sad and tragic events that befall families.  After mourning their lost son, Lucretia and Ebenezer set about securing their family line – year upon year producing more and more happy and healthy baby….girls. A total of 10 in a row over the next number of years.  All hope had been lost of producing a son when at last –another boy.  

    Andronicus was 6 weeks premature, a small mewling creature who cried constantly, and was diagnosed with colic, croop, whooping cough and every other malady that it was possible for a child to contract.  In addition there were other ‘ailments’ that a parade of doctors and quacks diagnosed him with, including some spinal issues and a hump back.  He was confined to a wheelchair on ‘doctors orders’ and was bed ridden for years because he was told he was ‘too sick’ a fact which he readily believed.  
    His parents feared constantly for his health, and everyone, including Andronicus himself believed that he would die before ever going to school.  Indeed his family feared he was a squib as he never displayed magic.  Although presuming his death was close at hand they never mentioned this fact was never mentioned to anyone.

    At his 9th Birthday a small gathering was organised for him, with a few children from a select number of pureblood families were invited to their home.  As Andronicus was wheeled around the room speaking imperiously to both guests and servants a girl pointed out in a less than friendly fashion that proper purebloods were strong and not cripples on deaths door from muggle diseases, and she had heard that he was a squib!  Incensed Andronicus flew into a tantrum.  Apoplectic with rage he screamed, causing the shutters on the windows to slam and clambered from his wheelchair intent on boxing the girls ears.  But was stopped by his mother scooping him into a hug – her little boy was walking, but more importantly he was magical!

    Andronicus was sent to the country to a  further recover and was soon walking confidently on his own, although he quiet liked the cane he had been given to help, and although he no longer needs it, he still pretends to so he can keep it to hit anyone within swatting distance.

    He is looking forward this year to attending Hogwarts and being around more people his own age.  

    At the age of 65 he will die in the first Wizard War
