It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

FOR HONORIA ROOKWOOD
Honoria Rookwood | @"Played Family Member" | @"Other Played Family Member"

ALBERT ROOKWOOD

late 40’s | MCPB | OPEN | Business manager and accountant| Suggested PB: Hugh Jackman

A shrewd business man, with a head for numbers, but lacking a fortune of his own to wager he usually handles accounts and business investments for other more well to do families, acting as business manager and accountant. He does well, but not enough to be considered among the cream of society – that’s not to say that he doesn’t intend to be.
DA-EUN ROOKWOOD

late 40’s | MCPB | OPEN | Business manager and accountant| Suggested PB: Choi Ji Woo

Da-Eun is rather ambitious socially, and although Korean, she anglicizes her name - mostly because she is tired to English people butchering it. She expects only the most lady like behavior from her daughter.

EUGENE ROOKWOOD

Below OWL | MCPB | OPEN | Student| Suggested PB: Kim Ye Joon

An eldest son, of which much is expected. If Albert doesn’t manage to break the class ceiling – then there is an expection Eugene will. His grades and classes are scrutinized – there isn’t much time for ‘fun’ in his schedule. He does not play quidditch – or if he does it’s on the quiet from his parents. He is entering 5th Year

For Thaddeus Flint
Thaddeus Flint | Malcorvus Flint | @"Other Played Family Member"


Type A Personality
Thaddeus Flint Lucretia Flint Cornelius Flint

____

60’s | UCPB | OPEN | Wizengemot Member and educator| Suggested PB: Jeremy Irons

The idea for opening the institute was his, although more of an academic he left the administration to his son. He is an animagus, dark arts expert and practitioner. He likely had or has a ministry job before taking up his seat on the wizengemot. He has travelled extensively.

He is not a cold man, with his children he is actually a warm and decent father. He is not purist to the point of rudeness, he just thinks he's better than you the birthright of purebloods

He is part of the Bibliomancy plot.

The Flint Siblings are open - and there are space for various at various ages, all boys are younger than Thad.  The family was competitive academically, at least for the boys.  They may be animagus, or at least have attempted the transformation.  The boys would likely be connected to the order, or their lack of interest may be a bone of familial contention. 

They are not a cold family, and although they take their bloodedness seriously, and would be mortified at the idea of marrying beneath their blood, they are otherwise affectionate and close to one another. 
  • Brother Flint – second son ability to be able to do just about anything
  • Sister ____ nee Flint -Married and family
  • Brother Flint – Ministry

For Madeleine Backus
Cane Backus | Madeleine Backus

BARTON BACKUS

b. 1843 | WCPB | Huffle/Dor | Baker – Hogsmeade | Suggested PB: Viggo Mortenson (Blonde/light haired)

He was from a good honest working class pureblood family.  As a second son he moved to St. Petersburg to make his fortune and got a job working in the factory of a prominent Upper middle class family in the city.  He was a steady worker, and eventually eloped with the families only child Katerina in 1864.
The Kozlova's provided money to start a bakery in England as a way of avoiding scandal but on the proviso that Barton would never be received into their home again, and they havn’t seen Katerina since.  He and Katrina were clear that the children, other than Rye should get a full education, and the girls were expected to maintain scholarships to stay in school.
When the muggleborns were excluded from Hogwarts Maddie got in touch with her grandparents to secure the papers she needed to get back to school, and the Backus parents were aware that she kept in touch with them through letters.  It was not until the death of Katerina's father that it became clear how much they had hated him, with the entirety of the family estate being left to Maddie and Maggie to vest on their marriage on the basis that they would no longer be 'Backus'.

The parents stopped talking to Maggie when she eloped to receive her fortune, and allowed Maddie to take social help from a friend of their grandmothers in the hopes of discouraging her from jumping into a hasty marriage as well.  Maddie sided with her father.

KATERINA BACKUS (NÉE KOZLOVA)

b. 1846 | MCHB > WCHB | N/A  | Family Accountant | Suggested PB: Michelle Phifer (blonde)

She is demure, quiet, loving, great business/organizational sense.  She has all the airs and graces that would be expected from someone given every advantage in life and a solid upper middle class up bringing. She has ambitions for her children to do better in life than she did.  And despite her own elopement to Barton, she was disapproving of her daughters decision to elope. 

______ BACKUS

b. 1863-ish | WCHB | N/A  | Head Baker | Suggested PB: Chad Micheal Murray

Increasingly (Herb) is taking over from his father in the running the bakery – his feelings on this are open.  He is a kind and compassionate older brother – who takes the ‘older brother’ bit seriously.  He and Maddie are close and even when living with her MC guardians she would still come by to see and bake with him.  The rest is open.

For Murdock Greyback
Murdock Greyback | Merida Greyback | Mirren Greyback @'Alisdair greyback'

(FRENCH NAME) GREYBACK

b. open| UCHB | TBC | FUTURE DEBUTANTE| Suggested PB: OPEN (RED HEAD)

Can't wait to be a debutante, she is prime, proper and very girly and is enjoying being away at school. She isnt exactly stuck up but she takes the social duties of an UC girl too seriously and her dad is always trying to get her to lighten up. She probably isnt a Ravenclaw, but could theoretically be in any other house. She is into everything girly and is probably already subscribed to witch weekly. Because she is the oldest she is looking forward to turning 14 and being given the keys to her Papa's house, as she fancies herself effectively the mistress Greyback Reach because her mother is deceased. The idea that her father may re-marry has never entered her pretty head. The girls are 2 years apart which everyone is taken first will set the age of the other.

THE PACK

b. 18-- | UCHB | OPEN | WEREWOLVES| Suggested PB: OPEN

Murdock has a number of siblings all younger than him. Merida is the youngest. The rest of the dates are flex, but should make sense with other establish family.

Nieces and nephews are available too.

For Enid

Hello friends!  Before we get started, I do have a few policies regarding my adoptables:
  • Please reserve your character with me before apping!
  • Obviously, I'd prefer activity from anyone to take these on XD If, after six months, I don't think you're doing much with them (I have very lax standards, don't worry!), I reserve the right to ask you to give them up so someone more active may take them on.
  • I'll give you two weeks after losing a character in an AC before I put them back up for grabs! If you drop them via Maintenance, they become immediately available again. If you just want to temp drop them, talk to me first! :)
  • Anyone picking up one of my ads must include the family and personality sections. I provide the family in all my applications so just mentioning the names is quite fine by me. Personality can be as minimal as three basic traits, just so I know for sure that our ideas of the character mesh.
To learn more about the Glynns and Avalon Glen, please read about the Glen (and Enid's oldest brother Rhys) here! All of the below live at Fairtree Farm in Avalon Glen. If you have any questions about any of the characters below, fire off a PM to Cassius Lestrange, catch me on discord, or stalk me in the cbox ;)

[Image: tumblr_inline_ppttmwMqEI1ucuavm_250.gifv]
B. 1869-1871| WCHB | OPEN HOUSE | OPEN OCCUPATION
Evan is the second son of the Glynn family. He's a flirt with the village girls, and has changed jobs a few times since leaving Hogwarts — usually because his flirtations got him in trouble. He completed a minimum of 3, and a maximum of 5, years at Hogwarts. He does not work with dragons, but is not expected to inherit the farm, so his occupation is open.

B. 1872| WCHB | NOT-RAVENCLAW| OPEN OCCUPATION
Vaughn has always been a little intense — he can have a temper, and roughhoused with boys in Hogwarts when he was a student there. He's also a smidge impulsive. He is a very loyal friend when you get to know him — but Enid sometimes worries he's going to get himself in trouble. He completed a minimum of 3, and a maximum of 5, years at Hogwarts. He does not work with dragons, but is not expected to inherit the farm, so his occupation is open.

B. 1878-1879| WCHB | OPEN HOUSE | STUDENT
 Cadogan is the youngest of the Glynn children, and is currently in his fourth or fifth year at Hogwarts. He desperately wants to keep his scholarship after this year, because he has ambitious plans for after school — which are totally open!

For Meserimus Valenduris

Meserimus has a large family - names are place holders and there are room for substitions and additions amoung his children and grandchildren.

Meserimus Valenduris | Cassian Valenduris | Sabine Valenduris| Isobel Valenduris| Penelope Valenduris | Parthenope Valenduris | Morgan Valenduris

KATERINA VALENDURIS (NÉE KRUM)

b. 1862 | ACAB | House | Occupation| Suggested PB: JULIA GARNER

once upon a time Katerina was a student of Meserimus when he was teaching at Durmstrang, they would regularly play chess together when she was still at school.  She is exceptionally bright and vivacious and when they danced at the coming out ball, it was clear to Meserimus at least that he cared for her more than just student - teacher.  They began to court, and developed a genuine love for each other.  When she was 20 they married with the blessing of her parents.  They genuinely love each other, and is fiercely loyal.
Katerina was born into an upper middle class family, and raised with all due care and attention and is the consummate lady.  However, she is incredibly intelligent and loves the fact that her husband encourages her not to hide her light under a bushel.  She has much more freedom than many women, and is secure in the knowledge of her husbands doting affections.  She may have her own academic interest and could be a writer or researcher of some sort.
REMEGIUS VALENDURIS

b. 1756 | UCPB | RAVEN/CLAW | CHARMS RELATED| Suggested PB: Patrick Stewart

Remigius Valenduris is Meserimus brother, he is youngest Valenduris brother, and 5 years younger than Meserimus. He is a high ranking Wizengemot member, and an expert in Charms and like his brother is upper class. He too has a large family and has been married multiple times, his current marriage is also to a much younger woman. Meserimus still treats him as though he is 15 and not a man in his mid hundreds! He is very family orientated and despite their ages both men still have a very puckish relationship, they believe and behave as though they are much younger than they are. The pair play chess once a month, overlooked by Archimedes
His suggested playby is Patrick Stewart. 
If Patrick Stewart is available – I would prefer him to be the face
ARCHIMEDES VALENDURIS

b. 1758 | UCPB | SLYTHER/DOR | OWL| Suggested PB: HE’S AN OWL

The consummate middle child he always felt like the odd man out in his family and keen to prove himself.  He had a talent for transfiguration and was determined to develop a method of undertaking the animagus transformation while retaining the ability to speak.  He succeeded - sort of.  He managed to turn himself into an owl - and he can speak....but now he's stuck and has spent the past 20 years as a goddamn owl.  He also won't allow his brothers to help him change back.  He currently lives with Meserimus (owls can't sign leases) and doesnt know if he hates living at the school (lots of kids) or Meserimus home (still too many kids) more.  He is cantankerous, grouchy and a curmudgeon.
RASPUTIN VALENDURIS

b. circa 64 years old | UCPB | OPEN | OPEN | Suggested PB: Jeff Goldblumm

He is not the first born son of Mesermus Valenduris, but the only son to have outlived his father.  He is technically the 8th of Meserimus children. Honestly – he kind of expected to have inherited by now. He has had to forge a career for himself, but it is lucrative, and despite being born into wealth he rather considers himself to be mostly self made.  He will eventually inherit his fathers estate, and has been supported by his father in all of his endeavours.  It does annoy him somewhat that his father still treats him 

________ VALENDURIS

b. Circa Mid-Late 40’s | UCPB | OPEN | Irked wife | Suggested PB: Kate Blanchette

Mrs Valenduris thought she had hit the jackpot, she married an 8th son who had somehow lucked into the heir spot – but her father in law WONT DIE.  So while she is financially comfortable she wants to THE Mrs Valenduris, not the step-daughter in law of Mrs. Valenduris.  She hen pecks her husband quiet a bit but he has the good humour enough to ignore most of her chittering. 
(Could be a second wife.)

MEDEA VALENDURIS

b. circa 24 | UCPB | HOUSE | ROLE | Suggested PB: India Eisley - Open

The eldest daughter of this side of the family, she is a consummate sweet young lady.  She wants a career, and is much smarter than she pretends to be.  She is a potions wiz, like her gramps.  She is a little quirkier than she really thinks is acceptable for an upper class pureblooded woman.  She is concerned she is not marriage material and is mostly okay with that but worries about her family reaction. 
TROJAN VALENDURIS

b. Circa 18 | UCPB | OPEN | Awkward son | Suggested PB: Tanner Buchanon

First born son, and the heir of an heir – he isn’t holding his breath about inheriting any time soon and so is working hard in school to get the career he needs to support himself.  If his families longevity is anything to go by he won’t be inheriting ever.  He is bright but finds his family fully extra. 

ALGERNON VALENDURIS

b. circa 13 | UCPB | NOT SLYTHERIN | STUDENT | Suggested PB: OPEN

Easy going, go with the flow kind of kid, He likely plays quidditch, and is part of several clubs.  He has an ear for languages and while he isn’t especially ambitious he tends to be good at things rather easily and does well in class with minimal effort.  He would easy to dislike but because he is generous with his wealth, time and friendship he is pretty popular. 
APOLLONIUS VALENDURIS

b. Circa 55 | UCPB | NOT SLYTHERIN | ROLE | Suggested PB: Mark Ruffollo

Is super glad that he isn’t the eldest son, he just wants a quiet life.  His mothers death is incredibly embarrassing to him.  He thinks people talk about it constantly when he is out of the room, and so hates social obligations.  He asked for his parents to arrange a marriage for him, but is still unsure if his wife loves him.  He is close with his nephew because he also thinks their whole family is a needless level of extra. 
________ VALENDURIS

b. early 40’s | UCPB | OPEN | OUTGOING WIFE | Suggested PB: JENNIFER GARNER

She was an arranged marriage with her husband but loves him greatly.  She is out going and spunky and rather the opposite of her husband.  She has a youthful, quirky air and fits in very well with the family- possibly better than her husband – her brother in law (below) often says that if they ever separate they are keeping her and ditching his brother.
OSMAN VALENDURIS

b. CIRCA 13 | UCPB | HUFFLE/DOR | FANCIFUL | Suggested PB: Ty Simpkins

Much like his mother, he is an imaginative, carefree and fairly whimsical boy.  He is likely to be found playing some kind of imaginative game in the grounds of the school, with the easily whimsical children.  He has read a lot of fiction and so any kind of Romantic (with a capital R) story will appeal to him (Half breeds, mysterious orphans etc) He much prefers the outdoors to inside.  Care of Magical Creatures is his favourite class, closely followed by herbology, but  anything that requires him to spend hours in the library will bore him immensely. 
GREGORI VALENDURIS

b. CIRCA 12 | UCPB | HOUSE | INTENSE | Suggested PB: Oakes Fegley

Irish twins, there are only 11 months between them but the two couldn’t be more different.  Gregori is intense, serious and thinks of himself rather as grown up, he looks on his brother with a touch of disdain for being so ‘foolish’.  He prefers to dress, speak and behave like a grown up. 
HELENA VALENDURIS

b. INCOMING FIRSTIE  | UCPB | OPEN | TWIN | Suggested PB: OPEN

Is incredibly anxious that she wont be in the same house as her sister.  She has some fairly intense social anxiety, and her sister is her social bridge to the ret of the world.  She is the smarter of the two. 
MOINA VALENDURIS

b. INCOMING FIRSTIE  | UCPB | OPEN | TWIN | Suggested PB: OPEN

secretly wants to be in a different house to her sister – she sees it as a chance to spread her wings a little and be known as an individual rather than part of a set. 
MAGNUS VALENDURIS

b. CIRCA 50 | UCPB | RAVEN/DOR | OPEN | Suggested PB: RDJ

Incredibly smart, entirely self made and incredibly proud of this fact.  He tells anyone who will listen about his ‘invention’ that ‘changed the world’ – it’s a stretch but it has made him independently wealthy.  He has a slight addiction to opium, he was  a keen underground boxer back in the day and still considers himself an authority.  He has never married but still considers himself to be on the market.  He is a flirtatious charismatic man whose main flaw is being too picky.  He is very fond of his younger siblings

NICHOLAS  VALENDURIS

b. 8 | UCPB | NA | Scampish son | Suggested PB: OPEN

Doesn’t have a serious bone in his body and a class clown in the making.  He is OBSESSED with quidditch and has been flying from the moment he could balance his butt on a broom.  He is not the most academic kid on the planet, and probably has a mild form of dyslexia – just enough to make book based classes and subjects a bit tougher for him than practical things. 
MERLIN VALENDURIS

b. 6 | UCPB | HOUSE | FUTURE MINISTER OF MAGIC | Suggested PB: FACE

He is a very serious kid, and behaves much older than he is.  He has a genius level intellect, already being excellent at reading and writing.  He plays chess (wizard and muggle).  Named by a naming seer

FOR GINEVRA BLACKWOOD
Ginevra Blackwood | @"Played Family Member" | @"Other Played Family Member"

BERTRAM BLACKWOOD

b. 1830 | UCPB | OPEN | QUIRKY QUIDDITCH SPONSOR| Suggested PB: DONALD SUTHERLAND


The man loves Quidditch and is richer than god.  He could sponsor ‘good’ teams but instead he chooses to sponsor the worst team each year in order to help them improve.  He buys a private box for each quidditch match and is very supportive of all of the teams.  He lives for the world cup!
EUGENIA BLACKWOOD (NÉE FLINT)

b. 1848 | UCPB | SLYTHERIN | SOCIALITE| Suggested PB: JULIANNE MOORE


A consummate socialite.  She is the picture of propriety and mixes in all the ‘right’ pureblood circles.  She would love her son and daughter to give her more control over their love lives, and possibly allow her to arrange marriages for them.  Her family were pretty purist and her father was a second son.  When her cousin, married a muggleborn, the estate was entailed away from him and entailed to Eugenia’s daughter providing she marries a pureblood.  She is inclined towards gossip and is vicious in he judgements of people. 
BERTRAM BLACKWOOD II

b. 1860 | UCPB | SLYTHERIN | OPEN| Suggested PB: Sam Heughan


He is a mans man, he is into quidditch, probably does some underground boxing, part of a mens club.  He goes along with his sisters socialising quiet a bit and the pair are in society together rather a lot – although he sees it as a social duty rather than something he enjoys he would rather be in a mens club than at a ball or garden party.  He may have another profession, or interest.  While he is not a purist, he is proud of his particular blood status and so would probably not consider a woman who is not pureblood.

FOR ROSE HART
Rose Hart | @"Played Family Member" | @"Other Played Family Member"

Francis Castellan

circa. 1855 | WCAB | OPEN | HEALER| Suggested PB: Jake Johnson

He and Margaret Temple were in love once upon a time.  Seperated by society and class expectations they ran off together, determined to create a life for themselves.  He woke up one morning to learn his infant daughter was dead and his wife had absconded with his property.  In the intervening years he worked as a healer, even if his career path took him down some less than salubrious routes.  He had a legitimate practice, but also works as a healer for underground boxing matches and the like.  He also does some work as a coroner.  He came to England after hearing a rumour that Margaret was there. 
Their relationship is complex.  He considers himself the 'co-owner' of the True Hart, it was his money after all.  He lives in the True Hart and enjoys the 'delights' of the ladies of the Hart on a regular basis.

The Dempseys
For Porphyria Dempsey
& Lowri Dempsey Ozymandias Dempsey Endymion Dempsey Christabel Daphnel Shalott Dempsey Lycoris Dempsey

The Dempseys are an UCHB family who live near Galway in Ireland. They are all varying levels of eccentric, although still respectable enough to get invited to society things (their reps should reflect this). The name scheme - being named after a poem and the poet who wrote it - was decided on by Eamon and Lowri before they were even married.

EAMON DEMPSEY

B.1824 | UCHB | PB: GARY COLE

A notable poet and cheerful eccentric, Eamon was his parents' heir. His hobbies include waxing poetic about the wilderness, going on ill-advised sailing ventures, and humouring his wife. Porphyria probably gets on fabulously with him.

DON JUAN BYRON DEMPSEY

B.1863 | UCHB | PB: DEAKEN BLUMAN

Don Juan's personality is exactly what one would expect of a famed literary libertine, and never mind that the poem is ironic re: the name. Lord Byron is his actual hero. Accordingly, he is a constant source of migraines for their mother, and generally a Disaster™.

the ADEBAYOS

Welcome to your seduction ;)  Before we get started, I do have a few policies regarding my adoptables:
Show

Ife —
[Image: 0W9dtCv.jpeg]
B. 1827 | UCPB | UAGADOU GRADUATE | SOCIALITE
Genia's grandmother (Ìyá) on her mother's side, Ife has lived with the family since her husband's death just after the twins were born. She has at least one living child. Like the other women in her family, she was told of the ~curse upon their family upon coming of age, and was relieved to be attached to a husband so much older: no risk of falling in love, after all! She is a self-assured woman and powerful in her own ways. Ife does not use or own a wand, and is an animagus. Genia greatly looks up to her grandmother, who, since Bosede's disappearance, has served as her primary maternal figure. The suggested PB is Adjoa Andoh.

Immediate Ties: Iphigenia Adebayo

FEMI ADEBAYO
[Image: KKfatiF.jpg]
B. 1873 | UCPB | UAGADOU GRADUATE | OPEN OCCUPATION
Femi has long been the sibling with which Genia is closest, as he is nearest to her in age. Incredibly intelligent but also down-to-earth, he has an interest in many academic areas. Though he owns a wand, it's really more for show, as he excels in the wandless magic taught at his school. He is an animagus. The suggested PB is Toheeb Jimoh.

Immediate Ties: Iphigenia Adebayo

KAYIN ADEBAYO
[Image: 9SsQ3MW.jpeg]
B. 1866 | UCPB | UAGADOU GRADUATE | HEIR TO THE ADEBAYO TRADING COMPANY
The firstborn son to the firstborn son. Unlike his twin, who resides in Lagos, Kayin always struggled with wandless magic, though his father insists it's because he uses the tool as a 'crutch'. Nonetheless, he does not lack for brains and has clearly inherited his father's business acumen. He can be a bit reckless in his pastimes, but has never placed himself or the family name in danger (at least, not yet). He works alongside his father, that he might learn the family business before it is time for him to take it over. He is likely an animagus. The suggested PB is Sope Dirisu.

Immediate Ties: Iphigenia Adebayo

CALLISTA ADEBAYO
[Image: G3QrE9c.jpeg]
B. 1870-Early 1872 | UCPB | OPEN HOUSE | DEBUTANTE
Callista has always thought it best to blend in with the norms of society; as the only other of the Adebayo children to attend Hogwarts, she performs magic exclusively with a wand, and focused more upon social education than deeper learning during her years at shcool, and later two years of finishing at Pendergast's. The exception to this is her passion for herbology, the only area in which she's ever been willing to get her hands duty. She wants to marry well not just for herself but for the family's interests—though whether this is a genuine desire or borne out of her father's expectations remains to be seen. She was hard hit by her mother's disappearance and subsequent talk with Ìyá, and holds herself to high standards. The suggested PB is Aja Naomi King.

Immediate Ties: Iphigenia Adebayo
Potential Ties: Age-Appropriate PSYR graduates

TAIWO ADEBAYO
[Image: nRUBkCW.jpeg]
B. 1840 | UCPB | UAGADOU GRADUATE | HEAD OF THE ADEBAYO TRADING COMPANY
Taiwo Adebayo is a man of good sense and better luck, rapidly growing his father's small business into a bustling company and propelling himself, and future generations, into the upper class. He is a man who is soft-spoken except on matters of honour and pride. Though he sees value in the English and the connections a life in Britain can bring him, he is Yoruba first and foremost, born and raised in Nigeria. He does not even own a wand, and is an animagus. With his youngest child, he shares a love of astronomy. He understood what happened to his wife, and kept quiet on the subject even when treated as a suspect, not wishing her misdeeds to further diminish the family. The suggested PB is David Oyelowo.

Immediate Ties: Iphigenia Adebayo

For James

James Callum

ARTHUR CALLUM
B. 1853 | MCPB | Slytherclaw | Ministry | Suggested PB: OPEN

Born into an UCPB family, Arthur was disowned for marrying a muggleborn witch. Deeply family-oriented and honorable, probably the most dishonorable thing he's done in his life is get an unmarried woman pregnant--which, to be fair, he rectified very quickly, at great personal expense to himself. He does genuinely love his wife and son... and mostly tolerate his grandmother-in-law for their sake. James, for his part, idolizes his father and desperately wants to make him proud. He's just... also a bit of a disaster child.


ELEANOR "ELLIE" CALLUM nee MCKINLEY
B. 1860 | MCMB | Slytherclaw | Ministry | Suggested PB: OPEN

Called Ellie by her family, she was raised by her grandparents after the death of her parents when she was still quite young. While generally warm and kind-hearted, she has also always been very driven and chose to pursue a career, even after marriage and motherhood. Her relationship with Arthur Callum was a very unlikely pairing that nonetheless somehow works.

JANE MCKINLEY nee ---

B. 1807 | MC Muggle | N/A | Widow/Caregiver | Suggested PB: OPEN

A formidable, no-nonsense kind of woman, Jane McKinley nonetheless has a soft spot for her only great-grandchild. She values her family above all else, even if she's still a bit leery about magic in general. She's also never quite forgiven Arthur for knocking up her granddaughter, and the two have never had better than a barely civil relationship.

The Farleys
For Jemima Greengrass
& Delilah Warbeck, Greengrasses

The Farleys are MCPBs from Tutshill, and I'm very flexible with them! You're more than welcome to combine with other ads/plots.

JACOB FARLEY

B.1861 | MCPB | PB: ELLIOT KNIGHT

Jacob works as a healer in either Hogsmeade or London, and, being his parents' son, has grown up very curious and very knowledgeable about muggle "doctors". He's a lovely guy, but whether his inclination towards bold new approaches - and minor obsession with testing out new muggle medical trends in his workplace - has largely helped or hindered his career is up to you! His marriage status is open.

ZIPPORAH FARLEY

B.1869 | MCPB | PB: ALEXANDRA SHIPP

While Zipporah may be living the deb life in theory, in reality she likely spends 90% of her social interactions on the topic of eccentric muggle inventions. Or her own inventions. Unlike Jemima, she cares much less what people think of her and is comfortable in her own skin. Her general vibe is 'cute but weird', do what you want with that.

NOAH FARLEY

B.1874 | MCPB | PB: ARCHIE MADEKWE

Jemima's only younger sibling, the pair have a typical sibling rivalry where they find each other ridiculous and annoying and get into childish spats. Beyond that, his personality is open – he was in any Hogwarts house and can have embarked on any respectable career.

Also available: IKENNA "KEN" FARLEY and BESS FARLEY. Both the Farley parents come from wizarding families, and are very fond of each other - nearly as fond as they both are of muggles, and they are fascinated by all aspects of muggle life. Both black sheep in their usual circles, it was this likeness that brought them together many years ago. They are very enthusiastic people and, whatever their careers, very publicly campaign for pro-muggle rights and blood equality. (Imagine having two Arthur Weasleys for parents. Good. Now you know what they're like.)

Welcome to your seduction ;)  Before we get started, I do have a few policies regarding my adoptables:
Show

DAMARA DODDERIDGE
[Image: cATh44K.jpeg]
B. March 20th, 1870 | WCHB | GRYFFINDOR | FUNERAL COORDINATOR & FLOWER ENTHUSIAST
The eldest of the trio, a fact she often points out—even though she was the last to accomplish most other milestones. Damara has always had a way with people, and is the Miss Dodderidge that the bereaved most interact with for this reason. She is a gentler hand than either of her sisters—unless she's with her sisters. She keeps a small greenhouse in the alleyway behind the business, where she spends much of her free time. Beauty is its own sort of currency, after all—and she has always loved beautiful things. Play-by is Stephanie Hsu because I got there first and they're identical ;)

Immediate Ties: Divona Dodderidge
Potential Ties: Anyone in the plant business, Hogsmeade residents with recently dead family members.

DAMONA DODDERIDGE
[Image: ejcl55z.jpeg]
B. March 20th, 1870 | WCHB | GRYFFINDOR | KEEPER OF MEMORIES
Damona fancies herself the leader of the family, always bossing about her sisters. While at Hogwarts, Damona became fascinated by the idea of storing—and experiencing later—memories, and it was her idea to add penseive services, including facilitation and storage, to the sisters' business. Of the three sisters, she is the most serious, but to be fair, that bar is not overly high. Allergic to walnuts. Play-by is Stephanie Hsu because I got there first and they're identical ;)

Immediate Ties: Divona Dodderidge
Potential Ties: Hogsmeade residents with recently dead family members.

"PADMA"
[Image: aplprFt.jpeg]
B. c. 1790 | MCHB/PB | OPEN SCHOOLING | GHOST
At only nineteen years of age, Padma's life was snuffed out—but she was hardly ready to go with it! When the Dodderidge sisters arranged the funeral for the last relative that Padma actually liked (those that remained were either terrible bores or CMJ folk who thought her a sinner), she took a shine to Divona and the two have been best friends ever since. She is best described as bubbly, open, and mischievous. PB and ethnicity are hella open but pictured is Charithra Chandran.

the BRIERLEYS

Welcome to your seduction ;)  Before we get started, I do have a few policies regarding my adoptables:
Show

ARCHIBALD BRIERLEY
[Image: el1hg2I.jpg]
B. 1856 | MCPB | HUFFLEDOR | MINISTRY DESK JOB
Nell's elder brother, ever the responsible, peacemaking sort. He took an ordinary Ministry desk job as that's what one does—though whether he actually likes it or whether he would prefer something more, Nell isn't certain. His wife was a year behind Nell in school, and since Nell's return he has been innately aware that the two do not get on and feels uncomfortable in his own home as a result.  He has at least two children, but only one daughter. Pictured PB is Jacob Anderson with alternatives to be able to pass for mixed race.

Immediate Ties: Elenora Brierley

HUGO BRIERLEY
[Image: HpKZN50.jpg]
B. 1866 | MCPB | GRYFFINPUFF | CURSEBREAKER
The youngest of the Brierley children, Hugo works as a cursebreaker and is often away from home (he keeps a modest set of rooms in London) for months at a time. While Nell is not about to begrudge him this, it did cause quite a bit of tension with Archibald, as well as their father, when Hugo did not return home for Harriet's funeral. He is newly returned to England in August with an injury that looks to see him working as a consultant at best for the next few months. I do have some direct needs with Hugo, but beyond this he could be a temporary character.  Pictured PB is Mason Gooding with alternatives to be able to pass for mixed race.

Immediate Ties: Elenora Brierley
Potential Connections: Endymion Dempsey Daesyn Mackenzie

GREGORY —
[Image: XoN16fJ.jpg]
B. 1878 | MCPB/MCHB | OPEN HOUSE | FOURTH/FIFTH YEAR ('93)
Newly motherless, Gregory is the eldest of his siblings—though does not always display the consideration for his siblings or responsibility that one might hope out of a lad in such a role. He is eager to escape the dour, metaphorical shroud that has encased his family and is reluctant to talk about his feelings (or process them in a healthy manner).

Immediate Ties: Elenora Brierley
Potential Connections: Yuri Podsnapper Charles Whymper

DRUELLA —
[Image: hzVZaux.jpg]
B. 1880 | MCPB/MCHB | OPEN HOUSE | SECOND/THIRD YEAR ('93)
Druella did not take her mother's passing particularly well, and has taken to writing overwrought poetry as a means of coping with the loss. While initially excited to meet her aunt, she quickly declared Nell "peculiar" and is slightly embarassed to have Nell at Hogwarts with her.

Immediate Ties: Elenora Brierley
Potential Connections: Katherine Arundell Wren Burroughs Charity Lloyd Lucy Tatting Honoria Rookwood

PHILOMENA BRIERLEY
[Image: hzVZaux.jpg]
B. 1885 | MCPB/MCHB | YET UNKNOWN | DAUGHTER
Of all Archibald's children, Mina is both the second and the only daughter. She is quite fascinated with her aunt, much to her mother's displeasure. She lives with her parents, siblings, and aunt in Hogsmeade.

Immediate Ties: Elenora Brierley

TEMPEST CRUMB
[Image: qrD91YH.jpg]
B. 1 Dec 1867| WCHB | GRYFFINCLAW | "SECRETARY" & INVENTOR
The other, and certainly more magical, half of Crumb & Associates, Tempest is ostensibly her brother's secretary, but he knows damn well the business would fail entirely without her sharp mind (easily rivals his own, though better with inventions than puzzles) and ongoing Emotional Support. She is not as good with people as her brother, but makes up for it by being good people. She carries the guilt of the cause of her expulsion from Hogwarts with her, and works extra hard to avoid anything too disastrous. Recently, she has begun to dabble in creating portkeys, but doesn't trust them just yet. If she is an animagus, her form should be a cat for maximum hilarity. If she is a metamorphmagus, she can "play" Mael sometimes for business purposes. There is no "if" on whether or not I adore her, tho <3 Tempest has a reputation of 6 because of her shady neighbourhood, questionable hobbies, and former expulsion. The suggested PB is Antonia Gentry; alternatives should be able to pass for mixed race.

Immediate Ties: Maelstrom Crumb
