      Younger Sister - Emery Honeyduke, 1863, muggle, florist

    Appearance: Quin stands a little over average for the time, at 5' 11", though he's wispy and not very broad so not nearly as imposing as his height could allow for. With sandy brown hair and stormy blue eyes he has a boyishness to him that he hardly recognizes. He is often sporting some kind of stubble, though most due to lack of care than anything else. He's almost always disheveled, but only because he's concocting some new recipe in the back, bent over a potion or an oven of some kind.
    History: Quincey was the first child born to a small muggle family from Dover on the east coast of England. Gordon Honeyduke was a confectioner in the port city and owned a moderately successful business with the help of his wife who managed the store and did the book keeping. The Honeydukes were blessed with another child six years after Quin after trying desperately to have more. Emery would be the last, but they were quite happy with their small family. Growing up, both Emery and Quincey spent copious amounts of time at their father's shop when not in school.

    The summer after Quin turned eleven, a strange man turned up on his doorstep, dressed in dark robes and brandishing a letter from a place called Hogwarts. He explained that Quincey was in fact a wizard and that he was allowed to go to this magical school on September first, even though nobody in their family had displayed magic before. He'd always shown (unbeknownst to the muggle family) signs of magic; an unexplained movement of something here, uncanny luck in certain accounts and other unexplained occurrences. It took some convincing on Quin's part to get his parents to let him go, but after a trip to Diagon Alley in London, Quin was hooked instantly. Upon arrival to Hogwarts Quincey was placed into Hufflepuff after a decidedly unusual amount of time spent by the Sorting Hat choosing between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff.

    Quin felt quite at home in Hufflepuff rather quickly, feeling like he was put into the right place, even if he was a bit more outspoken and rambunctious than his housemates. He always figured that was the Gryffindor in him that the Hat had seen. He wasn't bothered by it, but in fact embraced his Gryffindor tendencies. Quin quickly excelled in potions and charms, having his background from the confectionery under his belt to help boost his potions skills. He could bake and cook with the best of them. He showed potential to play quidditch, but never got into it enough to give it a real try. He was too engrossed in every other aspect of the wizarding world to focus solely on one thing.

    Every summer he went home with new stories for his family, who got more and more used to him being a wizard as the years went on. The summer after Emery's eleventh birthday left the Honeydukes expecting a similar letter for their daughter, but none came. No man showed up, no letter, nothing. Emery was devastated and while Quincey was already approaching his seventh year of school, he was saddened that his sister would never be able to enjoy Hogwarts like he had. It most unfortunately left Emery very bitter and she grew distant from her brother, who now felt truly like an outcast in his own family.

    His last year at school kept him busy, his NEWTs going rather well, including top marks in potions, charms and transfiguration. Choosing to give something radically new a try, Quincey took his love of candy and his consciously developed magical abilities and combined them into something he could enjoy; magical candies, candies with the ability to change your hair color temporarily, or that fizz and pop when chewed. Quin had always had a jokester side that he wanted to capitalize on and thought others would enjoy. In January of 1876 after months of preparation and planning, Quincey opened a small storefront in Diagon Alley in London and while business was steady right from the get go, he was never confident it would be a long term.

    When the trouble started and the wizarding world exposed, Quincey packed up shop and moved to Hogsmeade along with the masses, eager to be completely surrounded by his own people and closer to the school he'd always loved. He's been running the shop with increasing success since 1877 to where he makes a comfortable living and enjoys tinkering with new sweets. He is always coming up with something new, taking input from the kids around town and students from the school for new ideas. He enjoys being social and attending events around town, though is rarely away from the shop for too long.

    Personality: creative, disorganized, scatterbrained, playful, easygoing, loyal, hard-working, friendly, amiable, chatty, easily distracted, a little naive.
