    Krishna Khatri | [1816 - ?]
    @Reva Khatri | [1845 - ?]
    @'Mei Khatri' | [1857 - ?]
    @Rush Khatri | [1860 - ?]
    @'Yasmina Khatri' | [1865 - ?]
    @'Medium' | [1861 - ?]
    Appearance:
    Val stands taller than most men at five feet, ten inches though he is actually the shortest of the men in his birth family. He has a sturdy build and wears clothing that could both be considered stylish and inconspicuous. He has green eyes,  naturally tanned skin and dark hair that he keeps short. He is right handed.
    History:
    1860-1868 - Valentino is born into a middle class family in Beunos Aires. His childhood is pretty average though it is quickly apparent that Valentino has a bit of a problem staying focused when it comes to studies. He shows his first signs of magic at the age of eight and his tutoring begins to include magical stuff.

    1871 - Valentino’s parents opt against sending him to magical school due to their own personal views about how the school is run. They feel like it will be better in the long run if they just hire a private magical tutor for their children.

    1874 - Valentino comes to notice the delights of the opposite sex. He proves to be something of a natural when it comes to charming girls.

    1875 - A little by accident, Valentino comes to the realization that he also has an admiration for males.

    1876 - 1877 - Turns out his parents had noticed that their son wasn’t exactly the purest, most chaste teenager in Beunos Aires like they want him to be. They decide to wash their hands of him and in December of 1876, he is cast out of his family home. Initially, it is easy to find a place to stay but he makes the mistake of seducing the sister of a former male lover. It’s all quite awkward, dramatic and Valentino finds himself quite in need of a place to hide.

    Ducking into a shop that he hadn’t really taken notice of before, he gets to know some of the people there. He tells them about being cast into the streets but not the rest of his story of how he ended up in the shop because he isn’t entirely stupid. It all works out because he does work for the shop and has taken quite a liking to his newfound “family”.

    It quickly becomes apparent that Valentino has quite the talent for getting into and out of situations and places. A talent that helps quite a bit when it comes to “acquiring” things for the shop.

    1878 - Rush's wand  nearly causes their lodging area to burn down when it spontaneously combusts while they are all asleep. Luckily it doesn't but Rush is left without a wand. Farrah, a teen from Chicago, joins their motley crew.

    1879 - In the midst of a tiff with an irate ex-lover that he accidentally ran into, he manages to get the other persons wand out of their grasp and apparates away with it. He isn’t about to risk what might happen if he actually gives it back so he takes it home and gifts it to Rush. He needed to hand off the wand and Rush needed one so win-win! #bromance

    1882 - Mei and Reva get together. Considering his own proclivities, this doesn't bother Valentino overly much. You do you, Mei and Reva.

    1883 - Krishna retires from the shop and Reva takes over.

    1884 - Valentino finds himself in a bit of trouble when he is stuck in Chicago while not just one but two of his ex-lovers discovered their 'mutual' acquaintance. Both are quite displeased and Valentino is also very displeased when he finds that the shop moved. This starts his Personal Mission to find a working set of two way mirrors for himself and Rush because owls take too long and don't convey the urgency of his situations.

    1886 -  Rush accidentally breaks one of Mei's things and subsequently ends up with an actual storm cloud following him around due to the objects curse. Valentino is inordinately amused.

    1887 - One of the things that Valentino is sent to get turns out to be cursed. Luckily, it seems to be more of a prank-curse than anything else but Valentino is still stuck talking in some ancient language that none of them can pinpoint. It wears off for a couple of months and Valentino is left satisfied knowing he can still get people into bed even if they have no clue what he is saying to them.
    Personality: Laid-back. Easygoing. Charismatic. Smooth. Versatile. Loyal (if you’re a Khatri, at any rate). “Romantic”.
