Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Plotting with Paul
Player Name Paul
Contact: PM/Reply here

Character: Hippolytus 'Oly' Attalus
Quick Facts:
Age: 27
House: Hufflepuff
Grad Year: 1871
Class: Upper class, formally Middle Class but made a butt load of money as a potioneer.
Reputation: 7
Blood/Race: Halfblood

Needs: What you’re looking for!
Friends Oly has a good number of friends. He is a gregarious fellow who loves to chat, throw dinner parties and have a good time. In particular it would be cool to find his 'Auror friend.'This is the person who saved his life. They met at Hogwarts, though they do not need to be in the same year.
Hurls: He is not currently looking, but I think it would be fun to do something sometime. While not the most attractive gent he is kind and very rich. Maybe a pushy parent is trying to set them up?

So Oly was in the news a while back after he became very wealthy and married a stunningly beautiful woman who proceeded to try and have him murdered so she could inherit his estate. He retreated from society for a while afterwards, but recently took up his position at the Ministry as it was an Auror who saved his life and he wants to give something back.
Hi, Paul! My name's Bree and I'm glad you've joined us! I have a few connections for you; shout if any interest you <3
    Finnian Byrne is a lawyer who once attempted to become an auror and sucked, and now holds a vendetta against anyone associated with the program "just because". Do with that as you might.

    I have Simeon Graves and Tierney Walsh who are around his age, but I'm not sure how Oly might see them. Tierney's American and never attended Hogwarts, so they would haven had to meet someplace else!

    My other Ministry employees are: Albert Pettigrew (who is unlikely to be kind to anyone, let alone someone he views as a social-climbing halfblood!) and Andrew Bingham (who's working class and younger!).

Post Log

I have Meserimus Valenduris , the potions professor at Hogwarts, he has obviously worked extensively in potions research. He is SIGNIFICANTLY older than Oly, but they would be industry buddies

I also have Benevolence Montague who owns a flower shop but is also a flower/plant breeder and herbologist, so they could have had contact with her sourcing stuff, or breeding plants for him.

Hi Paul! Welcome! We’re glad to have you on board. I have a couple of characters that might work but unfortunately it looks like you fall between the ages of my guys, but I’ve put some ideas here in case you’d like to try plotting with them.

@’percival adlard jr.’ was a Hufflepuff during his school years, also mc. He would have been three years ahead of Oly, I believe. He currently works at the ministry in the beast division and has since he graduated Hogwarts. He’s not the most social guy out there, but he gets along with people relatively well.

@’rufus bixby’ would have been four years behind Oly and was in Gryffindor, he’s mc as well, but he gets around town quite a bit. Currently he is a chaser for Puddlemere United.

As for hurlable girls, @’Caroline Delaney’ may be fun as she is an american debutante. She is middle class but wealthy as her father owns a shipping company. She’ll be on the social scene this year and is a bit of a spitfire adventurous type. Then there is @’Lucille Flint’ who ucpb. She’s a hopeless romantic who has a tendency to think there is more in simple flirty than there really is and is very likely to get carried away.
