    Timothy Ainsworth
    [Image: oT2JAF.gif]
    Full Name: Timothy Declan Ainsworth
    Nicknames: Tim, Timmy though he doesn't much like nicknames
    Birthdate: August 6th of 1860
    Current Age: 27 Years
    Occupation: Librarian at Crowdy Memorial Library; Inventor
    Reputation: 4 for eccentricities
    Residence: Hogsmeade
    Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
    Wand: 12", walnut, kelpie, rigid
    Blood Status: Halfblood
    Social Class: Middle Class
    Family: Agatha Ainsworth - mother
    Malachi Ainsworth - father
    Rebecca ____ nee Ainsworth - sister
    Angela Ainsworth - Sister
    Appearance: Timothy stands on the tall side of the spectrum at five feet, eleven inches. He has a lithe build and a naturally graceful way of moving. His clothing is always impeccable and stylish with himself often being found in a suit of some sort. He prefers muted and dark colors. He is right handed.
    1860 - Timothy is born. He would eventually prove to be the only son.

    1865 - Rebecca is born.

    1870 - Angela is born.

    1871 - Timothy goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Ravenclaw. He finds the house very suiting to his personality.

    1876 - Rebecca goes off to Hogwarts. Timothy does his OWLs. This also is the year when Timothy begins to dabble in trying to invent things - devices, machines, spells, potions, etc. - to varying levels of successes and mishaps.

    1877 - The family decide to move to Hogsmeade, a move that Timothy does not much enjoy though he can understand the logic as to why the move is the smart thing to do. He also finds himself developing a bit of a crush on a new neighbor. A male neighbor. Unsure how to process this, he deals with it like he does with most other things he encounters but does not understand - he researches it as discreetly as he can. Eventually he comes to the conclusion that he is gay which he knows he must keep a deep secret.

    1878 - Timothy graduates and becomes a junior librarian at the Crowdy Memorial Library. On the side, he also continues tinkering with inventing things. It isn't very long until he develops a reputation for being a bit of an eccentric.

    1880 - Timothy moves into his own home and gets a workshop built for himself. He also hires a small staff, mainly because he would probably forget to eat and eventually starve if he didn't.

    1881 - Angela goes off to Hogwarts.

    1884 - Timothy manages to catch the Laughing Plague but recovers.

    1887 - Timothy has begun to consider the fact that he should probably get himself a wife both for the companionship and to carry on his family name.

    Personality: Loves puns. Discreet. Intelligent. Resourceful. Taciturn. Loyal. Has a bit of a smoking habit that he can't quite kick. When he is in the middle of a project or research, Timothy will forget that he needs to eat or sleep, a habit that became worse once he began living on his own.
