    Mason Skeeter
    #1
    In Character
    Full Name: Mason Elijah Skeeter
    Nicknames: Mase, Skeet, sometimes Mes for his initials and his disheveled appearance
    Birthdate: November 30th, 1856
    Current Age: 30
    Occupation: herbology professor
    Residence: Hogwarts, travels in summer
    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff Alumnus
    Wand: 10", Hickory, phoenix feather, pliable
    Blood Status: half
    Social Class: middle
    Family:
    • Edison Skeeter : father, deceased.
      Morwenna Skeeter nee Flynn : 1829, mother, Head of Beast Division
      Maxwell Skeeter : Martha Skeeter & family, uncle, aunt and cousins.

    Appearance: Mason stands above average height at five foot ten, though you would never know it as he's usually hunched over something or another or slouching. With dark messy hair and a perpetual stubble one could say he often looks disheveled, but it's mostly because he's elbow deep in dirt and distracted. He dresses casually has he's often getting dirty and doesn't see the point in wearing nice clothes when he's going to ruin them anyway. He's slender without much meat to his bones, but he's still pretty strong. It's mostly because he's too busy to remember to eat. Mason has deep hazel-green eyes that are often far away thinking on something else. He's right-handed.


    History:

    November 30th, 1858 : Mason Elijah is born the first and only child to Edison and Morwenna Skeeter.

    1862 : Edison suffers a fatal injury at work and passes away. A hardly four year old Mason is too little to understand, he understands something big has happened and that it makes his mumma sad. His new nanny is very good and he starts learning the basics of reading and writing.

    Spring 1864 : In an attempt to help his nanny reach something, Mason displays his first sign of magic and levitates the book she is reaching for down to the table to be used for story time.

    School Year 1868-69 : Mason heads off to school at Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. This comes as no shock to any as he has always been a kind and understanding person, if a bit of a scatterbrain.

    School Year 1869-70 : School proves to come rather quickly for Mason, he excels in herbology, potions and charms.

    School Year 1870-71 : Mason adds care of magical creatures, and arithmancy for his electives classes. Quidditch strikes his fancy and he tries out, but isn't quite good enough to make the team. Ever unperturbed, he plods on with his studies.

    School Year 1871-72 : Mason starts tutoring some younger schoolmates and finds he enjoys teaching quite a bit. He has always been a people person, but really enjoys the connection of learning with others. In never having any siblings, he seeks out connections with general success.

    School Year 1872-73 : Selected to be a prefect this year, OWLs prove to be a challenge, but Mason gets through with very good grades, earning top marks in herbology and charms.

    School Year 1873-74 : Mason continues his prefect duties and chooses to continue charms, herbology, potions, transfiguration and care of magical creatures for his NEWT classes.

    School Year 1874-75 : As a seventh year prefect, Mason realizes that he's about to graduate. NEWT classes go well for him and he receives great marks in his classes. His mother accepts a job at the newly established Hogsmeade Ministry and the two move there during the school year. Upon graduation Mason debates between working at the hospital and at the ministry. Neither really struck him as a career path he wanted so Mas went a different route, choosing to stick his strengths and working in agriculture and herbology.

    1875-1880 : Mason works at various, large magical farms in the country, quickly adapting to the lifestyle. He moved around a bit, trying different kinds of farms and at the last one fell for the owner's daughter. Unfortunately his affections are not returned and she is married off to another farming family.

    September 1880-June 1883 : Deciding on a change of scenery, Mason moves back to Hogsmeade and starts working in the apothecary.

    Summer 1883 : The herbology slot opens at Hogwarts and Mason applies thinking he'll never get the job, but his excellent NEWT scores and real world experience land him the position. He eagerly awaits the start of the term in the fall. He is currently still living with his mother and enjoying a free summer before the term starts.

    Personality: caring, intelligent, soft-spoken, nerdy about plants, easy-going, stern in his classroom (for safety), approachable, amiable, trusting, easy to manipulate, scatterbrained, loves to teach and learn, hates to be a disappointment, disorganized, messy, always reading, always busy, forgetful.
