    Ernie Nuffer
    #1
    In-Character
    Full Name: Ernest Silas Nuffer
    Nicknames: Goes exclusively by "Ernie". Sometimes teased by his peers as "Mr. Niffler", which usually causes him to snap at them.
    Birthdate: October 03, 1871
    Current Age: Sixteen Years
    Occupation: Fifth Year; Chaser
    Reputation: 3
    Residence: London, England
    Hogwarts House: Slytherin
    Wand: Holly, 10 inches, Dragon Heartstring, Swishy
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Lower Class
    Family:
    Frederick Nuffer, "Father" [1815-1884]
    --- Ernie's biological grandfather
    Hildegarde Nuffer (née ------), "Mother" [1824]
    --- Ernie's biological grandmother

    Robert Nuffer, "Brother" [1849]
    --- Ernie's biological father, completely denies it
    Amelia ------, Mother [18XX-1871]
    --- prostitute who died of consumption
    Appearance:
  • Fairly tall for a boy of his age at a solid 5'8" tall. Has a fairly slim frame and toned muscles.
  • Even bone structure, straight nose, strong jawline, and clean-shaven most of the time.
  • Short, medium brown hair and green eyes.
  • Dresses in his school robes 98.5% of his time at Hogwarts, only if because they look far more put-together than the clothes his parents pack him with. Dresses simply while outside of school.
  • Wields his wand with his right hand.
  • History:
    1871 | His mother, a known prostitute, gives birth to him. She passes from consumption shortly after recovering from childbirth, but not before giving the midwife, a personal friend of hers, instructions on how to find Ernie's biological father. When faced with the child, Ernie's father vehemently denies his involvement with the woman. However, Ernie's grandparents, noting the immediate resemblance between their own son and the child, agree to raise him as their own despite their own son's protests. No one is good society is positive about his parentage, but many suspect there were shady circumstances regarding his birth.

    1874 | Ernie displays his first sign of magic. While his parents try to dress him in his ~nicer Sunday clothes, Ernie burns them while in tears.

    1877 | Ernie's "brother" moves away and into a shared shack in Hogsmeade when the village is founded. It marks one of his earliest, poorest memories of his brother, as Robert made his animosity towards Ernie clearly known as he left.

    1879 | Ernie learns that he is not the biological child of the Nuffers (or at least those Nuffers), which leads to much confusion and harbored resentment. His parents refuse to reveal who his biological parents were, and moreover, what came of them in the aftermath of his birth.

    1883 | Ernie receives his acceptance letter to Hogwarts and goes off to the school in September. He is sorted into Slytherin—fitting for the boy who dreams of making a name for himself—and finds enjoyment in classes that involve less practical magic. He's a disastrous ~organized~ dueler, but does quickly learn a snappy jinx or two.

    1884 | Ernie sees his "brother" for the first time in years, and during Christmas nonetheless. While Robert brings gifts for his parents, he pretends not to even notice the thirteen-year-old in the room. He leaves before much conversation is held, leaving Ernie confused and undeniably angry.

    1885 | Ernie adds Ancient Studies, Muggle Studies, and Ancient Runes to his class schedule. He enjoys all of his electives, though finds some topics within them more interesting than others.

    1886 | Ernie makes the quidditch team.

    1887 | OWL preparations begin. Stress ensues.
    Personality:
    Impatient. Done with everyone's bullshit. Sarcastic. More compassionate than other people expect. Clever. Brave. Ambitious. Throws a lot of shade. Resentful and petty. Subscribes to the "hard work leads to success" mentality. I probably should have named him Bert instead of Ernie.
