Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

"The Prodigal Sister" for Ophelia Devine. Faked deaths, scandal, and schemes!
Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

7 Deadly Sins

The Room Where It Happens [Lynn's Plots]
Hi folks! My name is Lynn! I have a small hoard of dramatic characters and also run Witch Weekly in my down time. The best way to contact me is Skype (ask if you would like my information) or via PM to Ophelia Devine

Welcome to my very-much-in-progress networking!

Upcoming plot needs:

Lyra needs vampires! She is starting THE VAMPIRE REVOLUTION, or attempting to, and she needs both folks who will help and folks who will hurt (though tbh, most will probably do both). Her end goal is to allow vampires to live peaceable alongside humans without murdering them. More on the tactics tba.

Benllory need drama! As if they didn't have enough of that already. Rephrase: Benllory needs consequences because they are idiots and we love consequences.

I'm offering bribery for Nicky, the Local, or the Dutchman.

I also have adoptable family members listed roughly in their order of usefulness. Top spot is "Paul", Alfred's bff and co-survivor of the Sycorax - come play him!

Networking is divided by character class - although I am pretty awful at doing networking, I am always up for new connections, so click around and see if anyone piques your interest! Each character entry has a link to their profile/postlog, quick facts (hover over the photo, or on mobile click the photo), and little blurbs about what type of networking I'm looking for. I'm mostly open to things not listed as well, so throw whatever ideas you have my way!

The Needs tab lists every "wanted" plot or networking connection that could be filled by an existing character. These folks are highly sought after! Please be one of them and make my day!

My networking is best viewed in a full-screen browser. Viewing on mobile? Click photos to reveal character quick stats.

Mrs. Ophelia Devine
Ophelia Devine

Ophelia is a well known socialite and is often lauded for her skills as a hostess and her excellent fashion sense. She often feels superior to other women and can be catty with anyone she is not close to. She does a lot of harmless flirting with the menfish, but her heart has been soundly stolen already.

Ophelia was raised a MCHB and was a tomboyish, graceless girl at Hogwarts until she was pulled out after her fourth year. If your character knew her then, you may remember that her family is both odd and tragic.

I am mostly interested in networking her with other friends or frenemies (the latter is more fun!) or anyone who might remember her from her distant past.

Thom Pettigrew
Thom Pettigrew

Thom is well known in UC society for being a charming and extravagant host, which allows people to forgive many of his eccentricities, such as his lifelong devotion to Quidditch and his inexplicable attachment to the mostly disgraced Hannah Pettigrew nee Echelon.

Thom is a flirt and has been unfaithful to both of his wives in the past; he is always available for affair hurling and general romancey drama. He can also befriend other UCPB men around his age or serve as the antagonist to rival/female Quidditch players.

Tiberius Lestrange
Tiberius Lestrange

Tiberius is a villain, pure and simple. He has no patience for anyone who does not fulfil a need for him personally. He is purist, classist, and tends to not associate with anyone outside of his family. That being said, I'm open to him having one or two friends, who should be other UCPB men around his age with similar interests (academic research, dark arts, etc) and no 'frivolous' past times (womanizing, Quidditch, etc).

Tiberius is married and has no particular interest in romantic relationships either in or out of that marriage. He is generally open for new plots, but would not get involved in any situation unless he sees a direct benefit to himself.

Ben Crouch
Reuben Crouch

Ben is always up for networking with friends, particularly Excalibur members around his age. He would not get along well with anyone who takes themselves or their careers too seriously. Gryffinfails are more his jam, generally speaking. He enjoys Quidditch, traveling, and flirting with women, and would get along well with men who enjoy the same. He's also a casual drug user and drinks more than he should.

He's romantically tied up with Ellory Pendergast but is also a total flirt and can be reasonably hurled at your lady folks for lolz or for drama.

Generally speaking he is also up for plots if you have any needs for him!


Ernest Mulciber
Ernest Mulciber

Friends - Would likely be Black's members or Ministry workers in their mid-thirties or older. UCPB males might see themselves invited to the Mulciber's for events and such but other people could be friendly with him in a work setting/in passing. He's not really a staunch purist, he just wouldn't bring a MCHB home to meet the family or anything.

Time Plots? If anyone has any ideas for things relating to time shenanigans, that's his specialty at the DoM and he'd love to get in your business about any time-related anomalies your characters might experience for the sake of plots or open threads. Throw your ideas at me.

Fling? - I don't need one of these but I'm open to exploring the possibilities if someone wants to! He has been unfaithful in the past but not just for the sake of it; he has a very specific type and there needs to be a good deal of chemistry for him to act on anything. I'm not entirely sure what that type is but traits I'm leaning towards: witty; vibrant; young-ish; maybe blond but haven't decided yet.

Also, you could play his mother who is a terror, or his son who will be in for some disappointing almost-bonding with his dad this year when he turns seventeen. XD

Socially Awkward

Capt. J. Darrow
J. Alfred Darrow

J. Alfred is preparing an expedition, and would love to thread with potential sponsors, crewmates, or other interested parties. He would also be interested in either making or reconnecting with male friends. Old Hogwarts schoolmates would be ideal, or anyone generally in his age range and not too judgemental.

Alfred is also hurlable, although he's an awkward turtle and very slow to admit to his feelings when he does develop them, so any interested parties would have to be patient. Socially, he may be found at appropriate MC events, but might also be excluded without much fuss by the hosts because of his proclivity for "odd" behavior since his return.

Lyra Potter
Lyra Potter

Lyra is the youngest sister of the late Bennet Potter and the late Minister of Magic Darcy Potter. She dropped out of school during his sixth year to "take care of a sick aunt." While the exact reason she dropped out wasn't common knowledge, anyone who went to school with her could probably have deduced that it had something to do with misbehavior since she was a bit of a wild child.

Lyra mellowed out following her departure from school and took an avid interest in politics. She was engaged to August Echelon-Arnost thrice (roller coaster relationship right there) but I think only once was public knowledge? IDK, ask Beanie. She disappeared in February 1883 and has been presumed dead ever since. She'll be returning to England in 1888.

Lyra has not one but two delightful ads on my Needs tab; go check them out!

M. Lockhart
Magnus Lockhart

Lock was raised MC, but was always at the lower end due to his career in professional Quidditch. When he continued to pursue a Quidditch-adjacent career following his marriage to Ruth, in lieu of something more financially lucrative, he and his growing family eventually dropped to WC. They live in Irvingly next door to his best friend (could that be you? Check my needs tab!)

Lock plays for the Cannons and can usually be found at Quidditch-related events, or may be seen escorting his sister, Fortuna Lockhart, to MC debutante things occasionally. He does not make friends easily, but is usually up for shenanigans or interesting scenarios.

Privately Educated
28ish Years

Rush Khatri

Rush is generally open for everything, though he doesn't really want to be involved in the magical world and will be uncomfortable with any interactions within it. He is hurlable and has very little use for Victorian social norms except to make him relatively inconspicuous. He is well traveled and multilingual and has a crazy "family."

For Thom Pettigrew

PEPPER POTTS. An ACAB woman (MC/WC preferred) within a few years of Thom's age (29-32ish) who was his personal assistant from 1873 (or whenever she graduated/sometime thereafter) until 1884, at which point she quit for reasons that made Thom pretty angry. Exactly what they are is open — personal fallout? business rivalry? unrequited romantic feelings from one side or the other? The two had a very close relationship prior (think Tony Stark/Pepper Potts), and their relationship since is largely open.

For M. Lockhart

NEAR MISS. A woman around his age (currently 22-26) who at one point in her life carried a torch for him. There was a lot of soap-opera-esque drama when she was played as "Annie" but I'd like to smooth that out with an existing character. They were very close prior to his marriage but have since fallen out of touch.

For Lyra Potter

BABY DADDY. Would have been at Hogwarts with Lyra during fall of 1881. She dropped out of school that spring to "care for her sick aunt in the country," aka go have a baby. Their relationship pre/post sex is flexible. Lyra did not tell him she was pregnant, though he may have guessed. He does not know that the baby was stillborn, though also may have guessed that.

For Lyra Potter

SAVIOR. This person "saved" her life by either killing or maiming a vampire who was in the process of draining her, resulting in Lyra becoming a vampire. After the attack, s/he either recognized what was happening and purposefully took her further into the Forbidden Forest/away from Hogsmeade so that she could complete the change, or else thought she was as good as dead and abandoned her somewhere in the woods. I'm flexible. Whatever the case, they either did not recognize her as the younger sister of the Minister, or did not report her whereabouts/fate to anyone.

The event happened in February of 1883 so they would have had to have a reason to be in the Forbidden Forest then! Also, you know, the sort to fight off a vampire.

For M. Lockhart

BEST FRIEND. This male was in Lock's year, meaning he graduated 1880 and is currently 24-25. I'd prefer a Hufflepuff but can be flexible. He has a big personality and was very talkative/loud at Hogwarts, and ended up speaking for both of them more often than not, which gave Lock a reputation with his schoolmates who didn't know him well as a silent giant.

Adult life is totally open/flexible!

is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?
