Eli Fox


Full Name: Elliot Fox

Nickname(s): Eli

Birthdate: February 23, 1881

Age: 9

Occupation: Chimney Sweep

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Small Chamber Off of the Store Room, Fox & Son, London

Hogwarts House: Unknown

Wand: Unknown

Family: He doesn't remember much about his biological family. He had at least eight brothers and sisters, if not more. Nobody has come looking for him. He has found family with the Fox crew.

Eli stands at 4 feet and 4 inches. Although he is no longer half starved, he's a skinny little thing with ordinary brown hair. His eyes are a greenish blue. He is fairly ordinary looking and easy to overlook. He dresses in muted colors that are often soot covered. He prefers not to wear shoes, but he will wear boots in the winter. He is left handed.
Quiet, observant, clever, invisible, nimble, adaptable, creative, illiterate
He speaks the most to Simeon and Jay. He has a great memory. He is pretty skilled at stealing, and he's learning to pick locks. He likes to draw. Most people think he's a mute (except the Fox family), and he lets them assume. Nobody expects a mute to tell their secrets.
1881 Elliot is born somewhere in the slums of London. He's the sixth or seventh child, and his birth isn't met with much celebration.
1882-1885 Even as a toddler, Eli is quiet. He often stays off to one side and silently watches as countless people dart in and out of their crumbling flat. He is often forgotten, even if he never left a room. He finds ways to feed himself, snatching food from others without them noticing.
1885 His family lost track of Eli's age and decides he seems old enough to start working as a chimney sweep along with his older brothers. During one of his first jobs, he nearly slips down the chimney and displays his first incidence of accidental magic. He floats to the ground instead of plummeting to injury or death.
1886 Eli becomes lost after a job, and he wanders his way into The Leaky Cauldron with his cleaning tools and covered in soot. It's a busy day, and he's jostled by various adults until he spills into Diagon Alley. The strange shops and weirdly dressed people have him edging along until he finds himself in the less populated Knockturn Alley. He wanders into Fox & Son, hoping to get directions, but the only two words he manages to utter after loitering are, "Sweep, sir?" Perhaps it's his quiet, concentrated nature, but something interests Simeon Fox, and he allows the boy to clean his chimney. He then feeds the half starved, quiet boy and decides to take him in. He is happy to find family and to be fed.
1887-1889 Eli continues to sweep chimneys, but he does so for different reasons. It allows him to scope out the entry points into well-to-do houses and eavesdrop on countless conversations. After all, what should a simpleton like himself care about the lives of his betters?
1890 Aside from an unfortunate incident with a cursed knife, Eli has been doing well for himself. He is learning to be a better contributor to the Fox Family by honing his skills.
He's some sort of urchin who doesn't speak. He spends his days sweeping chimneys or completing other menial tasks
He's a rather talented artist. He hangs out in Knockturn Alley with some shady people.
He's constantly observing/listening and is telling others all your secrets. He's a pickpocket.

Why wasn't anyone else skulking about the shop? Nearly all of the others were much more well equipped to talk some sense into Jay. What could he do? He'd been trying to communicate how dangerous he thought the knife appeared to be, but it seemed the man wasn't about to take the hint. The lure of it was too strong.

When Jay pushed past him, Eli side-stepped out of the way, trying to assess his options. He wasn't physically strong enough to wrestle the crude weapon from the man's grip. Nor did he particularly wish to anger him more than was necessary.

However, the moment he spotted Jay tracing the designs he'd made, any makeshift plans were dashed from his head. The last thing they needed was for his sleeping quarters or the shop to be reduced to ashes. The small boy reached for the closest thing to him, his longest chimney brush, and did something so unlike him that he even surprised himself. Eli grasped its handle with two hands and attempted to swing it at the hand that held the knife. The bristles were made of sharp metal, and he knew he's likely feel terrible about potentially harming poor Jay. However, it was better than them both perishing from a fire.
