In a word: bookish. He has a slim, lanky build without much muscle and a mop of brown curls he trims to the base of his neck. He has the sort of eyes that look vaguely brown or grey or green depending on what he's wearing, and often light up when he's talking to people, particularly when telling stories. His features are not unhandsome but he does not carry himself with confidence, which makes him easily overlooked in a crowded room. He is right-handed and dresses modestly, but neatly. He prefers suits when socializing and robes while working.

  • Languages: Fluent English & French, some Mermish & Gobbledegook
  • Maintains a membership at Black's.
  • Bisexual with a preference for men.

July, 1866It begins.
1868 — 1877Noble is born in 1868, which is delightful. Ford is very much in favor of siblings to play with. He is followed by Verity, Grace, and finally by Clementine in 1874, which completes the Greengrass family. As a group they are close-knit and affectionate, though it is clear from the beginning they are remarkably different people with personalities that might clash in another setting.
1877 — 1879Ford heads to Hogwarts, where he is sorted into Hufflepuff. He makes friends quickly, though he is sometimes the victim of bullying. He does passably well in classes but is sometimes distracted from studying by exploring the castle and conversing with the portraits, elves, and ghosts. During his second year, Ford becomes fast friends with one of the Hogwarts ghosts and learns a great deal about the castle from listening to his stories. He uses a secret passage to get himself and a few classmates out of trouble which makes him immensely popular.
1879 — 1882Ford adds Ghoul Studies, Muggle Studies, and Care of Magical Creatures. Otherwise things continue much as before, with the addition of Noble joining school and finding his own way about the castle. He is pleasantly surprised to be awarded a prefect badge at the start of his fifth year. OWLs are immensely stressful and he doesn't do half as well in the practical examinations as he had hoped to, leading to poorer grades in many of the spell-based courses.
1882 — 1884Ford drops several classes and continues with Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Ghoul Studies, History of Magic, and Muggle Studies for NEWT level. He spends his summers interning first in the goblin liaison office and then in the beast division of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, where he picks up some gobledegook and some mermish.
1884 — 1889Ford decides to work in the Spirit Division after graduation, since he has always been especially fond of his ghostly friends at Hogwarts and greatly enjoys listening to their stories of bygone eras. Unfortunately, as he soon realizes, people don't often contact the Spirit Division to deal with nice ghosts, so the job is much more wearing than he imagined. He keeps on with it, however, because unlike some of the divisions in the DRCMC the beings he typically interacts with are not likely to maim, murder, or eat him.
1889 — 1890Ford's relatively comfortable life is shaken when his father dies in a sudden accident. Ford had always both loved and respected his father, and so mourns deeply — but very briefly, as it becomes clear very quickly when he takes over management of the household's finances that there aren't any. Finances, that is. Their father had been floating on a sea of debt with no one in the Greengrass household the wiser, but with one sister already on the verge of debuting and two more poised to enter the social scene soon enough, the charade couldn't have held much longer even if the old man had been alive to try and maintain it.

Still trying to conceal exactly how dire things are from his mother and sisters, Ford begins quietly selling off assets to pay debts and doing his best to keep the family treading water. Maintaining their family home in the countryside no longer seems feasible, so he is forced to sell it, relocating the family to a Bartonburg house that Noble had recently decided to rent out in an early bid to establish independence as a young man — haha, sorry Noble, not going to happen.

They're at the point now that they can probably manage a season or two without anyone catching on to their dire financial straights, but not longer than that — meaning the girls need to find husbands, as soon as possible. Even Clementine, who is still in school — that's the safest place for her to be at the moment, since they could hardly support three debutantes at the same time anyway, but Ford has already let her know that she should expect to debut as soon as Verity or Grace have any serious prospects. And he supposes it's his job to find them some.

— Ford's father died in a sudden accident in December, 1889.
— He is now the head of the family and responsible for three younger sisters.
— Ford sold their family home in early 1890 and moved his siblings to North Bartonburg, ostensibly to be more centrally located.
— Ford's membership at Black's lapsed a year in 1890 while he was in mourning.
— The Greengrass family is on the verge of financial ruin.
— Ford prefers men to women, romantically.
