  • History:
    1858 — Albert and his twin brother are born minutes apart, with Albert being born a mere six minutes earlier (something he definitely doesn't let his brother forget as they get older). Albert is of a much quieter temperament than his brother, but his twin's frequent displays of screaming and crying cause Albert to react similarly.

    1862 — At the age of four, Albert shows his first sign of magic! After one of his favorite toys is taken by his twin brother, Albert unknowingly uses his magic to lift his twin off the floor and knock him to the ground — hard.

    1864 — Albert and his twin brother begin their tutoring at their family's estate. Albert proves the more bookish of the bunch and finds himself more serious about his early education. His nose ends up in a book during most of the day, a fact he suspects his twin brother teases him about behind his back. Nevertheless, Albert remains an inquisitive child and it is for long suspected that he'll end up in Ravenclaw upon arriving to Hogwarts.

    1867 — Albert gets his hands on a wand for the first time, but it's not his wand obviously. After almost taking someone's eye out with a random, violent spark, he's absolutely terrified to pick up another wand!

    Summer, 1869 — The time comes to get his wand and the wand-maker has to convince him to give his wand a wave. He's teased mercilessly for his seemingly silly fear, but luckily for him nothing bad manages to happen.

    Fall, 1869 — To everyone's surprise, Albert is sorted into Slytherin upon arriving at Hogwarts. Wand-work proves not to be his strongest skill, but it doesn't bother Albert, who's interests lie in history and other subjects that don't require heavy practical skills. He also takes an interest in politics, though sadly there are no classes on the subject!

    1871 — Albert adds Ancient Studies, Ancient Runes, and Arithmancy to his class schedule. All prove challenging, yet admittedly interesting, additions.

    1873 — Albert is passed over for prefect, which seriously upsets him due to the effort he put into being a good student. However, he carries his head high and does not anyone know how displeased he is.

    Spring, 1874 — Albert takes his OWLs.

    Summer, 1874 — After receiving his OWL results, he decides to continue on with NEWT classes in Ancient Runes, Ancient Studies, Arithmancy, Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, and History of Magic.

    Spring, 1876 — Albert takes his NEWTs and graduates from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

    Summer, 1876 — After a month and a half of contemplating his career choices, he decides to go into the Department of Magical Law Enforcement as an intern, feeling his interest in politics will help him find his place there.

    1877 — When the muggle uprisings take place, the Pettigrew considers moving to Hogsmeade. However, they choose to wait and see whether the new village will be a success or a flop. Thom decides to move their on his own, but Albert's father chooses to stay at the family's county home in Lancashire, leading Albert to follow.

    Summer, 1878 — Albert becomes a clerk after two years as an intern in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

    1880 — After two years as a clerk, Albert finally considers himself prepared to take on the position of lawyer. While he's not given any serious cases right away, he does enjoy assisting the more experienced lawyers.

    1881 — Thom gets married to a middle class woman.

    1884 — The plague strikes the Pettigrew family, leaving Albert without a father and a home. Following Henrich's passing, Thom inherits the house and gives the twins the boot. Somewhat peeved with his elder brother, he finds a small flat in magical London and continues his daily routine, albeit in black clothing due to mourning.

    1886 — Thom gets married to a Miss Hannah Echelon, a woman whose family fell from social grace following the reveal of her father's human trafficking business. Albert disapproves, but does not speak ill of her.

    1887 — The Minister for Magic resigns, leading to the beginning of another election season. While Albert makes no attempt to run, he does support his former dorm-mate, Roman Crouch, for Minister for Magic.
