    Philip Calendar
    Full Name: Philip Calendar

    Nicknames: Phil when he was younger but he is rarely called that now.

    Birthdate: 3rd July 1847

    Current Age: 35

    Occupation: Manager of the Beautiful Beast Boutique.

    Hogwarts House: Slytherin.

    Wand: Oak, 16 inches and with a Thestral tail hair. Philip is right-handed.

    Blood Status: Pure-blood.

    Social Class: Middle class.

    Matthew Calendar, 60 û Father
    Clara Calendar, 55 û Mother
    Thomas Calendar, 32 û Brother
    Peter Calendar, 25 - Brother

    Appearance: With an average height and a build that tends towards stocky he cuts an attractive and personable figure through town. Well-dressed, though not flashily so, he believes in looking respectable and classy rather than showing off his happy station in life. Philip possesses a handsome face and a smile from his is very well earned, although it isn't a prize hard to come by.

    History: Born the oldest of three sons to Matthew and Clara Calendar in 1847 he was cherished and loved from the very beginning. In 1853 he displayed his first sign of magic by making his mother's embroidery re-stitch itself because he thought a cat would look better than a bird and his mother was secretly thrilled. If a boy loves cats then he couldn't be all bad!

    At 11 he received his Hogwarts letter and started his schooling in 1858 being sorted into Slytherin house without too much preamble. While there he makes friends and enjoys his time. By the time he was 15 he was big enough to become a useful member of his school Quidditch team, playing in the Beater position and maintaining for the rest of his life that it was secretly the hardest role in the team, although Philip would never belittle the importance of a team effort.

    He graduates in 1865 with above average marks and yet to the surprise of his father, who had expected his son to join him in the Ministry, he instead opts to work in a pet shop in Diagon Alley. It is there that he learns the ins and outs of the business of trade and becomes a valuable asset to his employer who quickly puts him in charge of the other employees, second only to the Manager, just in case he should leave and help a rival!

    Over the next few years he did very well and became the owner's particular protÚgÚe, learning at his knee and living happily at home while his brothers finished their educates. Thomas, happily for their father, did join the Ministry and all was harmonious. It was during this time that Philip fulfilled a life-long ambition to become an animagus.

    By 1882 his employer had died and left the shop to his son, who promptly ousted the man who had almost replaced him. Not one to be perturbed Philip soon found himself a position at the soon to be opened Beautiful Beast Boutique.

    Personality: Hard-working and steadfast Philip is precisely the sort of man that would be a joy for all employers. After being alone for so many years he had decided that he wants to find himself a wife û he is professionally successful enough now that he can support a family and he believe it is time he began to enjoy the boon of his successes. He is not a cutting man and will certainly never treat a girl poorly purely because he doesn't want her, but he is determined not to settle û he's waited this long for the girl of his dreams, now he just has to find her!
