APPEARANCE
 hair eyes

A tragic platinum beauty with the delicate features of a wood sprite, Clue’s appearance is strange, scorned and unwanted in a boy. He is left-handed, light-footed, very slim and slight, no more than 4’11”. Clue’s eyes are medium grey, now icy, now savage, now still. His school uniform is old, worn, and overlarge.

Height: 5 ft. 1 in.
Weight: 90 lbs.
Physique: Delicate
PERSONALITY
Clue doesn’t trust adults, the people who disturbed and neglected him. He doesn’t trust children, the people who hurt and reviled him. So that just about leaves animals — he likes those. But he will still talk to and mix with other people for reasons of experimentation and boredom, being eerie and troublesome enough to disturb them, but not enough to land him in deep water with professors. On rare occasions, Clue will feel genuinely intrigued by someone as a result of a shared interest in something like spiders, art, potions or chocolate; but making a conventional friend is not a realistic possibility.

Patronus: Betta fish.
Amortentia: Charcoal, dark chocolate, the first frost.
Boggart: A frozen steak.
OTHER

Voice: Cold, dainty, ethereal.
Accent: English.
Pets: A succession of spiders.
Special Skills: Potions, charcoal sketching, tree climbing.
O.W.L classes: Transfiguration, Charms, Potions, History of Magic, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy, Herbology, Care of Magical Creatures, Earth Magic, Ancient Studies, Art.

HISTORY
Mercia Leverett gave birth in Blackpool’s open institution for volatile girls. When asked her baby’s name, she uttered “haven’t a clue”, and promptly expired. Clue was fostered by a maid, who sold him to a Coventry teacher, who left him with a London butcher, who got angry and locked him in a meat fridge. Clue didn’t die — he had magical power running through his veins. But his childhood remained cold and dark, as if he never left that meat fridge.

He was assimilated by a batty foster mother called Mrs Spragg, who let the children run riot and fed them boiled potatoes on a good day. Clue looked like a girl and was punished by the other boys for it, becoming quick and agile as he dodged punch after kick. But one night there was no retreat as the ruffians closed in, jeering, spitting — and suddenly thrown back by an unknowable force. Clue had inadvertently performed powerful magic, and his fingers still tingled with it as he fled back to Mrs Spragg’s.

Clue often wondered if this extraordinary event was the cause of what followed. Clue, who could scarcely afford a penny lick, become enrolled in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry — all expenses paid. He never found out why, and never discovered who. But, as foreseen by his mysterious benefactor, Clue immediately showed great talent in spellwork, and his academic skills followed suit once the professors refined his self-taught literacy. Unfortunately his failures proved deeper than his successes: he never gained a friend, not a single one. The young Slytherin is strange, dark and isolated.

YOU LIKELY KNOW...
Clue is an utter oddball, you should probably stay away from him. He is prettier than most girls — that is odder still. He is also from a rough part of London. Again, stay away.
YOU MIGHT KNOW...
He grew up in foster homes, neglected and unwanted, the son of an unruly girl who died in childbirth and an unknown father. He is probably illegitimate. Even his blood status is a question mark.
YOU DON'T KNOW...
A butcher locked him in a meat fridge at a very early age, traumatising him for life.

Professor Valenduris,

I can't imagine what you mean by "Potions", but if you mean to suggest the boy is cooking broths and soups then that is something practical at least.

Anyway, yes you can have him. I need his bed for Willy Porter anyway, he broke a rib while out with the wheelbarrow. So if Clue came here he'd be sleeping on the kitchen hearth (which would probably be good for him anyway).

Don't write to me again if you don't mind, I'd rather you just kept him. Be warned, he's a strange one. But your problem now.

Mrs Spragg,

PS. Sorry about the soil, but I was gardening and I wrote this on a tree stump, you know how it is.
