    Percy Pettigrew
    #1
    In-Character

    Full Name: Percival Alistair Pettigrew
    Nicknames: Percy
    Birthdate: 7 June 1858
    Current Age: 29
    Occupation: Obliviator
    Reputation: 5
    Residence: Excalibur
    Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
    Wand: Unyielding, 11’’, hornbeam and phoenix tail feather
    Blood Status: Pureblood
    Social Class: Upper Class
    Family:
    Heinrich Pettigrew, father (1831-1884)
    Lucy Pettigrew nee Carrow, mother (1838)
    Thom Pettigrew, brother (1855)
    Jane Prewett, sister (1856-1883)
    Albert Pettigrew, twin brother (1858)

    Art Pettigrew, cousin (1858)
    Appearance: Percy is the tallest of the Pettigrew brothers, at 5’6’’, but that doesn’t make much of a difference given his eternal baby face. He looks as though he hasn’t aged since he turned seventeen. An exaggeration, of course. Still, he looks like he’s more on the younger side of 20 than the older. His hair is blonde, like his mother’s and his eyes are a vivid blue-green. He has a bulky built and he used to play as a beater. He’s always sharply dressed. It’s not like he follows the trends, he just wants his clothes and look to always be polished because PEOPLE WHO LIKE QUIDDITCH CAN DO THAT, DAD. He’s right handed.
    History:
    1858. The Pettigrew twins are born with a six minute difference between them. Percy is one of the few younger twins of that era who didn’t die because they couldn’t get him out on time. His twin proceeds to be a brat about the “age difference” for the rest of their lives. Percy hates it and thinks Albert should really find a new joke because that’s old and not even funny anymore. At least Thom the Traitor is actually funny.

    1862. Apparently Albert showed signs of magic by dropping him to the floor. Percy has no actual memory of it, but he still got irrationally offended when he was first told that tale.

    1864. Percy shows signs of magic after throwing a tantrum about how he is totally a wizard and not a squib. Some curtains caught fire that day.

    1869. It is no surprise when Percy is sorted into Gryffindor, given his loud personality. Percy befriends Reuben Crouch, a fellow Gryffindor who also has an annoying twin brother in Slytherin. #twinsies

    1870. His cousin, Art Pettigrew, joins Percy in Gryffindor.

    1871-1873. Percy joins the Gryffindor Quidditch team for his third and fourth years. He’s sacked, however, for getting a fight over something petty. Anyway, they can’t ban him from Quiditch club so he continues to play there.

    1874. Percy sits his OWLs and he does quite well! He’s privately really smug about it, because he knew that his father expected less of him.

    1875-1876. Percy manages to reclaim his old beater position for his final year. He’s with Art and Ben on the team and it’s great.

    Summer, 1876. Percy tries to talk to his dad about pursuing Quidditch as a career, at least for a year or two. It doesn’t go well. Heinrich declares that no son of his would do a hobby for a living and that he, out of all of his brothers, should be the one pursuing an actual career.

    He watches with distress as Ben (and next year, Art), join professional Quidditch teams while he has to find a boring Ministry job. He secretly hoped that his friends, in an act of solidarity, would also give up on their Quidditch dreams and join him in his misery. He’s kinda offended at both of them and for a while their relationships cool down. Also because Ben goes off to travel the world and Art disgraces himself.

    Meanwhile, Percy works as an Obliviator.

    1883. Jane dies. Art makes the British National Quidditch team that year. It would be a lie to say that Percy isn’t jealous of him. Art might be poor and disgraced now, but he had the one thing Percy coul never had: a spot on a professional Quidditch team.

    1884. Father dies because Thom brings the plague to their house. After he inherits, Thom promptly kicks both Percy and Albert out of the house. Percy doesn’t take it well. That house was just as his as it was Thom’s and, in his mind, Thom has no right to do that. In a fit of rage, he jinxes some doorknobs and things to act out on Thom and his family. They’re fixed within some months. Still. Take that, Thom. Percy also begins to write down his brother’s name as ‘Tom’ just to irk him.

    Ben also returns from his travels and Percy is very happy about that. He’s no longer offended about that time Ben played Quidditch when he couldn’t, seeing that he’s not playing Quidditch either this time. It’s also fun to have someone to booze it up and have fun with. Ben also had to endure him through all seven years of schooling, so he’s one of the few people who has lovingly accepted Percy’s sometimes petty attitudes.

    1887. Isn’t a good year. First Ben is exiled over to Canada over some girl that Percy bitches about until he awkwardly discovers it’s the sister of Regan Pendergast, his fellow Gryffindor beater and a friend of his. Then, fucking Thom renovates his old room so they can put his ugly unborn child in it. Percy is like. He’s so offended with Thom, that he ignores the fact that Ben and Art had fun adventures in Canada without him, something he’d certainly be offended about otherwise.

    Personality: Offended. Petty. Quick to anger. Can be childish. On the bright side, he’s a fiercely loyal friend and he can be quite funny and nice to people he likes. He’s the sort of friend who’d literally kill a person for you if you were one of “his” people. Has some dependability and abandonment issues. Nosy. He hates feeling left out.
