    Reputation: 4, for eccentricism
    Residence: London
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

    Eaton stands at a perfectly average five feet seven inches tall. His hair is kept short and he rarely possesses facial hair. He occasionally sports reading glasses. His fashion sense, however, is notably absent. He often wears mismatched attire consisting both of wizarding and muggle fashions alike. Polka dots and stripes in contrasting colors are quite normal for him. His left hand is frequently smeared with ink, as he is left handed.

    1862 | Eaton is born the second child to the Shelby family on December 1st in Manchester. James works in the Ministry and Alice is a Healer.

    1865 | The family moves to London. Even at two and a half, Eaton is quiet and pensive.

    1868 | Eaton displays magic. He reads every chance he gets, drawn to muggle authors and poets more than magical ones.

    1869 | Augusta goes to Hogwarts. She is sorted into Gryffindor.

    1874 | Eaton goes to Hogwarts. He is sorted into Ravenclaw. He is bookish and drawn to both magical and muggle poets. He begins writing poetry over Christmas break his first year.

    1876 | Eaton adds Ancient Studies and Ancient Runes to his curriculum.

    1877 | Shit goes south. The family moves from London to Hogsmeade.

    1878 | Eaton is not selected Prefect much to his pleasure. He sends his poems to publishers, hoping to gain some interest and start making money. His topics vary from death, dying, and acceptance to love and romance and the beauties of femininity. He doesn’t fail any of his OWLs, but he only keeps Astronomy, Ancient Runes, Ancient Studies, Charms, History of Magic, and Transfiguration, dropping Herbology and Potions.

    1881 | Eaton graduates and receives NEWTs in all of his subjects. He moves back to London after being published and receives a small commission. He can pay rent in a modest apartment. He remains drawn to the morbid and romantic. He starts adding more flower language references to his works. He starts setting lofty goals for himself.

    1882 | Eaton happens to attend an event and meets several other individuals that suck him in to what he can only describe as “revolutionary romantics hope for change.” He shares their ideology and starts meeting with them regularly at a pub in wizarding London called “The Augurey Beak Cafe.” Eaton can only describe this as #goals.

    1885 | Eaton’s latest anthology receives higher praise and as such he makes considerably much more money. He begins championing many more issues than he did before he joined the group, and considers himself now an active activist believing in equality for all kinds.

    1887 | Eaton is hanging onto every bit of election news and gossip, focusing on the issues he finds intolerable. He is more vocal in his discussions. He is more prone to becoming heated in debates. He broke a bone in his right hand at the news of Minister Urquart’s resignation. He is currently working on his activism and his latest anthology.

    Personality: sweet. sensitive. shy. bookish. falls in love easily. dramatic. will fite 4 u. eccentric. opinionated. progressive. liberal.
