Did You Know?
Discovered today that spotted dick is a pudding with raisins in it. But more importantly that "dick" was the victorian word for pudding. — Fallin
His sister and her group were not yet performing, however. Instead it was a plain looking young woman that he did not recognize. She seemed to believe she was singing.

Likes her daughter more than her first born son! Seems unnatural for a woman to not dote on her oldest son in Cads opinion.

Annoying little sister - she's a girl so not much expected there.

Cad likes to remind her she isn't legitimate, he refers to her only as his natural sibling, and likes to remind others of the same.

He doesnt count the others as his family- but he is now aware of their connection to the 'proper' family,
As handsome as his father, with strong features and what could generally be considered good looks - and he knows it. His bearing is self assured, meaning he walks very tall and his shoulders very square. He is broad built through the shoulders, with strong muscle for his age in his upper arms - he will be a man of imposing build in another year or two, and while 5,10 now he may end up at around 6,0 when he is finished growing. He has dark brown hair, expressive dark eyes and a roguish charming smile. He had inherited his fathers talent for charming looks.

As the eldest and heir Cad feels the need to ensure that he wears only the best clothing, very up to date and always imaccutaly laundered. He insists on sending his clothing to a laundry elf in his parents home rather than relying on the schools elves to do the job correctly and to his standard. It would be fair to say that he is vain. He is right handed.
PRE Birth Cads parents had been an arranged marriage and had never been ‘happy’ as far as he could see. And the young boy thought that was how all marriages were – that a man would do his own thing, and the woman would accept whatever she was given. As an oldest male – the idea suited him well enough.

In 1874 Cad is born - and while no meteor or falling star marked his birth – he rather thinks there should have been.

When he was 3, he understands now that there was some kerfuffle with muggles who learned of the existence of magic. Part of him wishes that the family had moved to Hogsmeade or magical London were it seems like all of the fashionable people moved, but instead they stayed in Wales. Not that it really mattered – the house had floo so they were in London or Hogsmeade often enough.

At age 4 he first displayed magic firing wooden blocks at his natural sisters head in the day nursery. More children, natural and legitimate alike, follow and Cad pays them little notice. Why on earth should he? He does however, think it’s pretty amazing that his mother can turn into a peacock. That’s a heck of a feat.

In 1886 Cad goes off to school and is sorted into Gryffindor, he must admit it was a close call between Gryffindor and Slytherin according to the hat but his general impulsiveness is better suited to the red and gold house rather than the green and silver. Besides he rather like the lion as his emblem.

Cad progresses through school and while not academically inclined he is reasonably popular and athletic. He goes out of his way to make his natural siblings lives miserable, constantly affirming their illegitimate status, picks on Hephaestus, and ignores his younger sister completely.

Competitive - Proud - Manipulative - Detached - Emotionless - Intelligent - Methodical,
Cad has antisocial personality disorder, otherwise known as sociopathy, he does not appreciate or understand that other people have emotions and feelings and so is indifferent to both, he does not consider the safety of others when making decisions, which is often passed off as a product of his youth, or that he is a prankster. His emotional responses are usually part of a well-rehearsed act.

Cad is capable of being charming but is a practiced liar and proficient at deceiving other people. The decision to be charming is one he has to make, as the activity doesnt come easily but 'mastering it' or being perceived as charming is something which gives him a great deal of personal pride.

He does not trust easily and does not enjoy small talk. He is a solitary creature and does not consider himself to have any real friends even if he does cultivate friendships for the sake of appearance.

He is good at showing people only the sides of himself that he wants them to see and adults in particular will generally considered him a decent kid. He is unlikely to be obviously cruel or mean but he is good at triggering people's anxiety or fears but in ways that often appear subtle or accidental.

He is both a controlled, and controlling person. He is lucky that he is an upperclass pureblood eldest male, because it affords him just about as much control as a person could theoretically hope to have in life. This need for control does mean he hates people who 'buck' his control - looking at you Cameron Gillenwater. When someone or something is out of his control it takes all of his not inconsiderable self control to stop himself from lashing out.
He began practicing for his animagus transformation on April 14th 1890.
He has a dark coloured short eared owl called Deimos.
