    Paul Pince
    Full Name: Paul Andrew Pince
    Nicknames: --
    Birthdate: 1 April 1855
    Current Age: 32
    Occupation: Magical Archaeologist; Explorer
    Reputation: 4? 3? Definitely not a 5. xD
    Residence: Sanditon Resort
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    - Slightly springy, 12’’, sycamore and phoenix tail feather. It was broken during the shipwreck shenanigans.
    - Springy, 12.5’’, acacia and phoenix feather. It works better with him than with John, though it always seemed to like Ringer best.
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Middle Class
    Percival Pince, father (1816)
    Mary Pince nèe ???, mother (???)

    NOTABLE: Herbert Fudge, first cousin (1849-1887)

    Appearance: Paul is five feet and eight inches tall. After years of living in the jungle, he’s thinner than average but fit. He has light brown hair that goes honey blonde in the summer. His eyes are an impressive blue-gray colour. He’s right handed.

    His hair reached a little below his shoulders back in his castaway days. He still doesn’t have the heart to completely cut it and it’s help reasonably long, though he does a man bun. He also had a rather wild beard, though it’s not trimmed. He used to prefer muggle clothes but he finds his new clothes stifling and he’s turned to robes for the comfort they offer. He’s also tattooed bits on a doomsday Mayan calendar on his upper arms and chest.
    1 April 1855. Paul is born to Percival and Mary Pince. He’s the only child born to the couple. His parents are an odd pair. His mother is a devout Christian who believes too much in conspiracy theories about The Evil One. His father, surprisingly, is agnostic and really into history.

    1859. By his third birthday, Paul is a confirmed wizard. His father treats him with a trip to the museum.

    September 1866. Paul goes to Hogwarts. He’s sorted into Gryffindor. His favourite class is easily History of Magic.

    1868. Paul picks up Ancient Studies and Ancient Runes as his electives.

    1873. Paul graduates from Hogwarts. In the fall, he goes to a muggle university to study ancient history. His family supports this move, seeing that he’s their only son and with a muggle degree he could be set in both the magical and muggle world.

    1876. Paul graduates from muggle university. He interns in an archaeological expedition funded by his university.

    1877. Paul finds work in a magical archaeological expedition this time. It’s not much. He doesn’t discover Alexander The Great’s tomb or anything. He’s secretly disappointed - he thought that being an archaeologist would be cooler than that!

    1882 - 1887. Paul is finally enlisted on a big project! He’s hired as the magical archaeologist for The Sycorax a magical ship/team that is looking for undiscovered magical places and people all over the world. They are looking for some secret magical place in South America because that’s when Soph and Lynn’s cool plots have to start.

    Things start going downhill, however, when a dragonpox epidemic breaks out on the ship, claiming the lives of many. A storm follows and the ship crashes somewhere in Southern America. In the end, only three of the ship’s crewmen remain: Paul; one of the captains, John Darrow, and a cabin boy, Orion Ringer.

    They try to survive on their own at first which proves a challenge, seeing that Paul and Darrow don’t get along at all in the beginning. As for “Ringo”, as they came to call him, he was only a teenager in the beginning so he’s too terrified to be of much help. Beggars can’t be choosers, though and the three men form a close friendship.

    At some point, they begin to live with the Locals, after Paul tries to form a contact with them. It is difficult at first, seeing that some of their original crewmen were killed by them and the remaining three don’t fully trust them. In the end, Ringo ends up choosing to live with them, rather than return to England.

    It’s nearly five years later when they manage to return to civilization. Paul was a bit of an eccentric before embarking on his life changing trip so it’s understandably hard for him to adjust to his old life.

    Personality: Paul has always been extroverted, friendly and extremely talkative. The latter proved a challenge during the first days of the shipwreck, seeing that even then he was super chatty and he got on everyone’s nerves. He’s passionate for the things he loves, like history. His mother’s influence has rubbed off on him and he believes in some conspiracy theories. Nostradamus is his favourite and he’s read several wizard ones.
