Friends, Romans, Countrymen—anyone tied to your character that you would like to see in play! Ads can be as vague or specific as the requester desires, but should include some ‘unique’ information to distinguish from general networking. Characters needed for specific plots would be better suited to our Plottable Characters listing instead :)

These ads will be cleaned out infrequently throughout the year, but players will be given notice to ensure all posts are up-to-date and posted with active accounts.

For Bellona

LAVINIA

B. 1857 | UCHB | NOT HUFFLEPUFF | WIFE/SOCIALITE
Born on a Friday (Afia) and named in part for her paternal grandmother (Margaret). The eldest of the Zabini girls and the only one married (to date), Lavinia was nearly divorced by her purist husband (not to mention his family) when the news of her mother's heritage was revealed. Unbeknownst to her siblings (but known all too well by her), it was only a substantial payment from her father that saw her remain in her marital family—though she and her husband quite conspicuously live apart. Any children born to the pair would have been conceived before the scandal broke. She absolutely does not remain in contact with her mother. Her marital family is up to you!

PB is open but should reflect her mixed heritage; pictured is Kylie Bunbury. She is an animagus. Reputation of 6 or 7.

For Dash

LORELEI NEE DASHWOOD
[Image: 1OvGEyv.jpeg]
B. 1858 | UCHB | SLYTHERCLAW | WIFE & SCHOLAR
Dash's sister and the only person in the family to whom he is particularly close, Lorelei always shared his innate curiosity about the world—though was less reckless about it's application. She married in her mid- to late-twenties more because it was done than because she actually wanted to, and has long focused more on her academic interests than on raising her children. She occasionally sees Francesca, and gives Patience and Godric intellectual gifts each year on their birthdays. Reputation is 8, and the preferred PB is Maggie Gyllenhaal.

LYSANDER DASHWOOD
[Image: V1qwvOy.jpeg]
B. 1854 | UCHB | NOT RAVENCLAW | GENTLEMAN OF LEISURE or HIGH-RANKING MINISTRY
The eldest of the Dashwood children, Lysander has always been the ideal son and heir. As a result, he and Dash have long had personality clashes. His interests and personality beyond this are up to the player, though he has been married at least once with at least one child. Reputation is 9 or 10. The suggested PB is Casey Affleck. Best case scenario for me is that he's boning stepmom, just saying.

LAUREL DASHWOOD
[Image: 350x185.png]
B. 1879 | UCHB | HUFFLEDOR | FIRST/SECOND ('91)
Unlike her sister, Laurel is shy and awkward, and will no doubt need her fair share of finishing when she leaves Hogwarts. She is content to fade into the background, a place neither parent is content for her to remain. PB is open, but should be white or mixed-race. Reputation of 9.

For Divona

"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.

For Elijah

GABRIEL URQUART
[Image: seZIT2k.jpg?1]
B. 1877 | UCPB | SLYTHERCLAW | FIFTH YEAR (’92)
Elijah Urquart is not a kindhearted lad, but for his little brother, he makes an exception, displaying instead as warm and protective. For his part, Gabriel is less a criminal mastermind and more a snuggly bunny whose misbehavior serves only as an attempt to mirror his questionable role model of an older brother. The two are under the guardianship of their uncle Caspar. The suggested PB is Iain Armitage. He was previously played.

For Eudora

AUGUSTA KING
[Image: AErR7DA.png?1]
B. 1807 | UCHB/UCPB | OPEN HOUSE | THORNBACK SOCIALITE
Augusta King never married, instead inheriting no small amount of wealth from her own childless aunt at the age of twenty-four. Since, she has lived a comfortable life as a pillar of society—and occasionally a cautionary tale as to what happens when a woman has too much freedom. She took in her late nephew's children a time she might have had grandchildren of her own, and it is no secret that she favours Eudora. I picture her as a mix of the dowager countess (Downton) and Lady Danburry (Bridgerton). Maggie Smith is strongly preferred as a PB.

Immediate Ties: @Eudora King
Double Duty: Hamish's Golden Girl

DAPHNE NEE KING
[Image: RxVtSLC.jpeg]
B. 1871 | UCHB | NO HOGWARTS | WIFE
Married last Christmas, Daphne is the eldest of the King children. That she did not attend Hogwarts is a bit of a sore spot between her and Aunt Augusta, though she relished her time at PSYR. The suggested PB is Mia Wasikowska with alternatives to be age & family appropriate.

Immediate Ties: @Eudora King
Potential Ties: Age-appropriate ex-roses

TITUS KING
[Image: SOh5BE5.png]
B. 1876 | UCHB | OPEN HOUSE | FIFTH/SIXTH ('92)
His late father's heir, Titus hasn't quite processed the fact that he's going to be quite wealthy as soon as he comes of age, and Aunt Augusta is the only parental figure he can properly remember. The suggested PB is Ty Simpkins with alternatives to be age & family appropriate.

For Euphemia

CASSIAN FORSYTE
[Image: m6LSXAh.jpeg]
B. 1853 | MCPB | GRYFFINCLAW | PUBLISHER
Even during his time at Hogwarts, Cassian was groomed to eventually take over Forsyte Publishing, which he did following his father's passing. Traditional in attitudes but a cinnamon roll (against his will) in temperament, the 'famous' discretionary ink was his brainchild—as were several bad adventure novels he published under a pseudonym. He is married with at least one child. Suggested PB is Charlie Cox.

Immediate Ties: @Euphemia Forsyte

MANNERS
[Image: 9TRv7YT.jpeg]
B. 1830-1846 | UCHB | OPEN HOUSE | OPEN PROFESSION
Though their union was not founded on love, Manners found it easy to fall in love with his wife over the first couple of years they were married. It was for her sake that he went along with the ruse, even making an Unbreakable Vow to ensure his long-term cooperation (Euphemia's insistance, for which he dislikes her greatly). Towards Augusta, he is not particularly affectionate—more a typical VE parent than he is towards the other children. He worked briefly in the Ministry until it was time to marry as he is insisting his eldest do, though whether he is presently a man of leisure or gainfully employed is up to you! Pictured PB is Ben Affleck with alternatives to be white.

Immediate Ties: @Euphemia Forsyte

HORATIO MANNERS
[Image: tP9KItj.jpeg]
B. 1872 | UCHB | SLYTHERDOR | MINISTRY EMPLOYEE
Look, if he'd had his way, Horatio (named for his maternal grandfather) would be a gentleman, and that's it. After all, his father was content neither to let him play professional quidditch, nor to become a healer, which were his ambitions, so "doing nothing" would seem like a reasonable compromise. Tragically, his father was also not conent to have a "layabout" for a son, and insisted he work to pay his (metaphorical; he still lives at home) dues until he's old enough for 'wife hunting' to be an occupation. He has some menial desk job he hates and a penchant for losing bets. The suggested PB is Will Poulter.

Immediate Ties: @Euphemia Forsyte

JULIUS MANNERS
[Image: 4BNYLaQ.jpeg]
B. July 31st, 1876 | UCHB | RAVENDOR | SIXTH YEAR ('92)
Augusta's twin, at least on paper, Julius is intelligent and good-natured, at least most of the time. He inherited his mother's darker colouring, looking very little like his fraternal "twin". Suggested PB is Asa Butterfield.

EUSTACE MANNERS

PHILOMENA MANNERS
[Image: kLk4555.jpeg]
B. Late 1880 | UCHB | TBD | INCOMING FIRST YEAR ('92)
The youngest of the Manners children, Philomena has inherited her aunt's rather assertive sense of self, though has not yet acquired her aunt's sense of decorum. Though described affectionately (if with a long-suffering sigh) as spirited by her mother, Philomena shines just as bright as any young lady when it comes to music, where she is particularly gifted. Pictured PB is Alexa Swinton

For Holliday

IRENE FUDGE
[Image: g70Mv2e.jpg?1]
B. 1875 | MCHB | SLYTHERPUFF | SEVENTH YEAR (’92)
#MostLikelyToBeADebutante. Of the Fudges, Irene is the most likely to eschew a middle class lifestyle and try to marry up, though her ambition is tempered by her kind heart and loyal nature. She and Holliday are affectionate but not close, and a part of her that she would never admit to is afraid that her sister’s friendship with Topaz Urquart will cause Irene problems herself—appearances are important to Irene . The suggested PB is Malina Weissman with alternatives to be brunette or dark blonde-haired. She is unsure what to make of her father’s present status, but tries to be optimistic about it—at least in his presence. She was previously played.

SUNDAY FUDGE

B. 1878 | MCHB | GRYFFINDOR | FOURTH YEAR ('92)
The youngest of the Fudge brood, Sunday has always been a lighthearted and resilient girl who has spent all the life she can remember living at the resort. Adventurous in nature, though, she was eager to depart for Hogwarts and has found it a delight. The suggested PB is Eva Ariel Binder. She was Previously played.

"MERRIT" CRESSWELL
[Image: 59A9XC3.jpeg]
B. SEPT 1872 - AUG 1873| MCHB/MCPB | OPEN HOUSE | TRAINEE ARCHITECT
Because of their fathers' closeness, "Merrit" grew up around the Fudges. He would much rather work with dragons than become an architect, but has yet to figure out how to break this news to his father even with graduation looming on the horizon. He takes luncheon with his mother every Hogsmeade weekend, and is a twin to "Fortuna". No other siblings. PB open, but pictured is Marcus Scribner.

For Iphigenia

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.

FEMI ADEBAYO
[Image: nkqydys.jpeg]
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 excells in the wandless magic taught at his school. His is an animagus. The suggested PB is Nadji Jeter.

Immediate Ties: @Iphigenia Adebayo

CALLISTA ADEBAYO
[Image: G3QrE9c.jpeg]
B. 1870 | 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.

KAYIN ADEBAYO
[Image: gssBJav.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 John Boyega.

Double Duty: Florence's Paramour

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.

WESLEY WEASLEY

B. Nov. 1884 | MCPB | TBA | CHILD
The eldest boy, he has the best name. Wesley. Weasley. It's flawless. Like his elder sisters, he is educated at home by a governess. If the Weasleys did superlatives, he would be Mostly Likely to Keep a Dragon Under His Bed Until It Set The Bed On Fire, which hasn't happened (yet), and Most Likely to Eat So Much Fudge That He Vomits, which has. He loves quidditch, though thus far lacks the coordination even for his children's broom. Suggested PB is Matthew Illesley with alternatives to be redhead or brunette.

OAKSHAFT BELL
[Image: dBYuUwU.jpeg]
B. 1880 | MCHB | ??? | FIRST YEAR ('92)
Oakshaft "Oak" Bell is every bit his father's son: high energy, low focus, and an abiding love for quidditch and anything else he deems 'fun'. In the modern era, he would likely be diagnosed with ADHD, and has something of a fixed mindset when it comes to academics. Away from his instructors, however, he is a fun-loving young boy who will probably (but not necessarily!) follow his sister and step-siblings into Gryffindor. PB is open, but pictured is Jacob Tremblay. Reputation should be 8 or 9.

The eldest child to the Minister of Magic and his wife, Idris has always had the sense inherent in being Roslyn's child but the outgoing nature necessary to thrive in a large extended family like the Fisks.

DR. HIPPOCRATES POMFREY

B. 1828 | MCHB/PB | RAVENCLAW | PHYSICIAN & HEALER
The younger of the Pomfrey twins, Hippocrates followed his father's large footsteps into medicine. His life, otherwise, has been unremarkable, bar his journey east after his mother's passing. His is a quiet demeanour, and Stan doubts his father will ever remarry—though how true that is will be up to his player. Suggested PB is Hugh Laurie.

THESSALUS POMFREY
[Image: rcvkjxs.jpeg]
B. 1828 | MCHB/PB | SLYTHERDOR | AUROR/INVESTIGATOR
The elder of the Pomfrey twins, Thessalus had no interest in (or affinity for) healing, instead pursuing an active career in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. He is a much lauded duelist, and public perception of him is beyond reproach. Thessaulus is loyal to his family, however different he and his brother are. The status of his wife and any children beyond "Micajah" is up to his player. Suggested PB is Pip Torrens.

B. 1854-58 | MCHB/PB | SLYTHERCLAW | MINISTRY OF MAGIC
Outwardly, "Micajah" Pomfrey has always been quite...benign. No one looks at him particularly hard, and there is nothing about his personality that anyone would consider particularly dynamic. That's probably why he has no trouble hiding his interests in dark magic... PB (and ethnicity!) flexible, but pictured is Tom Riley.

The Bixby Boys
for @Sloane Bixby & @Wallace Bixby

mNWCSj.png
Carson --- Bixby
[Eric Bana]
1834 | GHRS
married | 8 rep
professional quidditch coach

Patriarch of the Bixby clan, Carson is very much a laid back creature. Most everything in his life revolves around quidditch. His boys play, he's totally down with Sloane playing and his wife works with brooms; it's all relevant. He and Fiona married for love and get along quite nicely. He is pro-female athletes and could easily be  considered a soft feminist. He coaches a pro team, but always makes time for his kids! I also wouldn't say no to him being the flight instructor at Hogwarts!

#doubleup with the Hogsmeade Howler's Coach, he's been mentioned as coaching a different team, but could make the move!
FYAErN.png
Alvin Bixby
[Jacob Elordi]
1867 | GHRS
unattached | rep 8
apprentice boommaker

Certainly the brightest of the family, Alvin may or may not have played quidditch in school. If he did, probably was not as good at is as Rufus, which he may have been self-conscious about. Regardless, after graduation he chose to follow more in his mother's footsteps and pursue an apprenticeship with a broom maker. Delighted, Fiona encouraged him to give it a shot!

#doubleup with a not quite a wanted
FYAukx.png
Harrison Bixby
[Nick Robinson]
Sept 1 - Dec 31 1870 | GHRS
unattached | 8 rep
recent graduate

A traditional middle child, Harry is the balance of the Bixby siblings and the most likely to baby Sloane especially while they were at school together; which she can sometimes resent. He was a decent student and likely played for his house quidditch team (or Club Quidditch!)! He likely chose DMGaS afterschool, but could totally be the family outlier with a career in another department, or at the hospital(s).


The Potts Flowers
for @Daffodil Potts, @Calla Potts, @Dahlia Potts & @Thistle Potts
I an NOT married to any of these PBs as long as the girls have some sort of ~dreamy look to them, I'm fine!

lHNBDf.png
Zinnia Potts
[Mishel Micheev]
1868 | HR | unattached | 8 rep
herbologist/florist

The artist of the family, Zinnia is an accomplished painter and uses her talents in conjuction with the family busness. While Daff has inherited the business side of things, Zin has taken over the design elements. Her eye for color and texture is unrivaled! She is Daff's closest sister in age and relationship. I have NPC'd her for business things a lot lately, so let me know if you have any questions! She was not around for the florist explosion in November of 1891!
lH82xe.png
Senna --- née Potts
[Lauren de Graaf]
1863 | GHR | married
8 rep | housewife

Recently married (summer 1890) Senna is in the throws of the honeymoon phase with her husband and wants children. She's the new default chaperon for the unmarried Potts girls, which she secretly enjoys after moving out of her family home. Personality wide open! It is likely that she is close to welcoming or already has had her first child.
lHYprM.png
Amaryllis --- née Potts
[Esther Heesch]
1862 | GHRS | married | 8 rep
P&P Poisoning Healer, HH

The oldest and so far the only one to pursue a career outside the florist, Ama married relatively early in a somewhat advantageous marriage that allows her to keep working. She likely hs 1-2 children already. Responsible and very much the Oldest, she enjoys her work immensely. Outside of that things are open!
lHNdZj.png
Laurel Potts
[Jennifer Aniston]
1842 | GHRS | married
8 rep | owner The Florist Potts

Laurel is... well Laurel. Formerly a Phillips, she has played family in the Fraser and Belby families. A meddler by nature, she loves flowers and puttering around the greenhouse, but also tends to get a little too into her daughter's love lives.  I have ~minor board plot ideas here. So hit me up! She is responsible for the naming scheme and is quite enamored with her husband. She has a played sister with family!
lHVGlJ.png
Basil Potts
[Keanu Reeves]
1834 | GHRS | married
8 rep | marine herbologist

Quirky and very go with the flow, Laurel can pretty much use him as a doormat. He wanted at least one boy, but gave up that hope after Daffy was born. He's surrounded by women and mostly okay with it. He's quite adventurous and thoroughly enjoys his underwater career! He is most likely bff's with his brother-in-law, Ewart Fraser. Basil also has a soft spot for Daffy's childhood friend, Jack Dorset.

And then you also get the baggage of a brother who went missing ten years ago and has been trying to find his way back to you ever since. He's currently a hedgehog. You know you want a hedgehog brother. (Names/faces/ages are all relatively flexible, but faces should be "plain"-ish and light-medium colour in hair.)

JACOB DAVIS

B.1854 | WCHB | PB: HARRY OR LUKE TREADAWAY

Jacob is the eldest child, and was the only sibling able to be financed through Hogwarts long enough to obtain his OWLs, meaning that he was able to go into a profession with more opportunities and a higher wage than being household staff for the rest of his life. Everyone else may be a teeny bit bitter about this. His personality and life beyond that is incredibly open! He may be single or married, have been in any house, etc.

WILHELMINA DAVIS

B.1856 | WCHB | PB: RACHEL MCADAMS

Wilhelmina managed more than just the one scholarship year at Hogwarts, so may have up to four years of schooling and may have once had greater ambitions than domestic service, but somehow she has ended up there anyway. Otherwise, she is incredibly open, and could also be made to fit another ad!

POPPY DAVIS

B.1863 | WCHB | PB: ELIZABETH OLSEN

Poppy, like Aubrey, found her first year at Hogwarts tough to get through academically, but has pretty good people skills which mean she is usually well-liked by her employers. She also works in domestic service.



~For @Carmelina Cramming

The Warbecks are a big, happy family from northwest Wales with slightly over-the-top names, who are all up in each other's business and generally giant Holyhead Harpies fans. PBs should have some family resemblance, but otherwise Carmelina's siblings are all fairly open to do with as you please, and you're welcome to combine them with other ads where possible!

FAVORETTA ______ NEE WARBECK

B.1850 | MCHB | PB: THANDIE NEWTON

The first child and (probably) her mother's favourite, Favoretta is either married or widowed, with some number of children. She's a bit of a diva, mothers the rest of her siblings relentlessly, and probably has some sort of MC-appropriate pastime or occupation for a married woman - she might be the centre of the MC social scene; may be a chaperone for some younger girls; or maybe she spends her days making ridiculous hats. She was in any house at Hogwarts.

ERRINGTON WARBECK

B.1852 | MCHB | PB: RICHARD AYOADE

In his late thirties, Errington is either married, courting, or single and eligible (#hurlable), and holds some kind of MC-appropriate job for a man. His Hogwarts house is open. Actually, everything about him is open; he only exists because I think someone should use Richard Ayoade's face, goddamnit.

JOSSIMA WARBECK

B.1859 | MCHB | PB: NATHALIE EMMANUEL

While Carmelina was always on the well-behaved side, Jossima was the out-and-out rebel from an early age, though most of the family have probably just learned to roll with her by now. By the time she started school, she was already set on playing quidditch for the Holyhead Harpies, a dream career that has come before anything like husband-hunting, that's for sure. Everything else about her is super open.



~For @Elias Grimstone
(& @Ruth Lockhart)

SIMON GRIMSTONE

B.1834 | WC -> MC MUGGLE | PB: JEROME FLYNN

Father to Elias, Ruth and Tony. Simon comes from Portsmouth and a muggle, working class family. He is skilled in carpentry and - like his father, brothers, and most of the men in the area - apprenticed and worked as a shipwright in the local dockyards. Through industry troubles, he has always struggled to make enough to support his family, though both he and his wife were adamant about giving their children a full education. Proud as he is of Elias' successes, he has always felt awkward accepting the benefits of it in return, which have seen them living a more comfortable life (though Simon continues to have quite a gruff attitude about most middle class society). He has also always struggled with the magical/muggle barrier, feeling a little like an outsider in his own family - but when Ruth and her husband moved to Irvingly, Simon and Lucille finally followed suit. His occupation in Irvingly is open, whether carpentry-related or something entirely different: he may see Irvingly as a second chance of sorts, to be less distant from his children's lives - but he's basically a fish out of water all round! As personality goes, Simon isn't so different from his children: he works hard, has a dry sense of humour (and at heart, maybe he’s a romantic), but he is also hot-headed and very, very stubborn. I am ridiculously attached to Jerome Flynn as his face. xD

LUCILLE GRIMSTONE

B.1837 | WC -> MCAB | PB: LINDA CARDELLINI

Mother to Elias, Ruth and Tony. Lucille has always had an adventurous spirit, though in practice it hasn’t carried her far. Fortunately, she is unafraid of hardship, with a bright demeanour and the resourcefulness and practical sense to usually land on her feet. She is a witch, also born into the working class, and she married Simon for love (although her parents may have expected her to do "a little better" than Simon). Lucille attended Hogwarts in any house, probably to no further than OWL level. She was pleased to have left Portsmouth at last - she was the one who pushed for the move to Irvingly - and is especially grateful to get to spend more time with Rue and to help look after the grandchildren! Lucille has worked throughout her life, and may now run a seamstressing service or something similar out of the house. Suggested face is Linda Cardellini.



~For @Jemima Farley
(& @Jacob Farley, @Delilah Warbeck )

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

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.)

ZIPPORAH FARLEY

B.1869 | MCPB | PB: AISHA DEE

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. Her general vibe is 'cute but weird', do what you want with that.

NOAH FARLEY

B.1874 | MCPB | PB: AMIR WILSON

Jemima's only younger sibling, Noah is at school in any house. His personality is open, but Jemima absolutely finds him annoying, because what little brother isn't? For extra funtimes, Noah had a prime front row seat to Jemima's diary disaster at Hogwarts, which may well have had... negative effects on his own social reputation at school. xD



~For @Nelson Higgs

The Higgs are a respectable UCHB family who live in London. Gulliver Higgs was a muggleborn from a prestigious military family who joined the Ministry and married Theodora, a wealthy halfblood. Theirs is a well-off, loving, happy family... but their five children have always been a bit of a handful.

HECTOR HIGGS

B.1867 | UCHB | PB: TITUS MAKIN JR

Hector is the eldest, and the leader: he is charismatic but bossy, and just about manages to keep the other three boys in line. Most of the time. He was a Gryffindor or Ravenclaw at school. He has some kind of UC-suitable profession now, because who would he be if he didn't get to boss someone around? PB is open.

MORRIS HIGGS

B.1869 | UCHB | PB: DEXTER DARDEN

Morris is the second son, and funny but insensitive: he'll do anything to get a laugh, but is, on the whole, better at looking out for himself than for others. As kids, Morris always had the least patience of the brothers for Nelson (although Morris doesn't have a great deal of patience for anyone). As such, the Unspeakable Vow that prevents Nelson from speaking as long as he lives was Morris' fault. Morris didn't mean it, but... He was a Gryffindor or Slytherin at school, and his profession is open, as is his PB.

QUENTIN HIGGS

B.1872 | UCHB | PB: LAMAR JOHNSON

Quentin is the third son, and has always been anxious but driven. He has big dreams but also has a bad habit of worrying about everything. He was a Hufflepuff or Slytherin, and his PB is open.



~For @Porphyria Dempsey
(& @Ozymandias Dempsey, @Endymion Dempsey, @Christabel Dempsey, @Lycoris Dempsey, @Lowri 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. Much love to Beans for letting me straight-up steal a lot of the descriptions below.

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.



~For @Theodore Gallivan
(& @Selene Gallivan, @Cecily Gallivan)

The Gallivans are an upper-middle class family who live in Hogsmeade. @Nathaniel Gallivan was the successful sponsor of the Chudley Cannons and (– known only to his family –) a secret werewolf, who, in the autumn of 1888, faked his death on a scouting trip to save them from himself. Which leaves...

VERONICA GALLIVAN NEE SCAMANDER

B.1859 | MCPB | PB: JESSICA BROWN-FINDLAY

Veronica Gallivan was Nathaniel Gallivan's second wife and the stepmother to his older children. She also had two children with him, Nathaniel II in 1882* and Selene in 1883 (played by Finn) . She discovered her husband's lycanthropy in 1887. As of the autumn of 1888, she is publicly a widow, though she knows that Nathaniel isn't actually dead. In his will, she was left ownership of Quality Quidditch Supplies, though she may not have much to do with the business side herself and is welcome to have other interests.

Veronica is a kind and patient woman, probably a Ravenpuff. In the early days, she and Theodore had quite a difficult relationship, but she has always been close with Cecily. Although she spends her time looking out for everyone else, she may have recently met a man who might want to court her. However, knowing that she isn't actually a widow, she might have conflicted feelings about it. Does she want to live a new life, or does she feel like she needs to stay loyal to her husband?

The suggested PB is Jessica Brown-Findlay, with alternatives to have dark hair. She was previously played, and is a sibling to @Eugene Scamander, @Marlena Scamander and @Helga Crouch.

*Also available to play!

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: Patrick Dempsey

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. 

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

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.

For Madeleine Backus
@Cane Backus | @Magdalena Byrne | @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 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 | @"-" | @"-"

(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
(SCOTTISH NAME) GREYBACK

b. open | UCHB | TBC | TOMBOY| Suggested PB: RED HEAD

A distinct tomboy, she thinks its very unfair that only the boys get to become wolves and is determined to become an animagus so she can run with the pack, or see if she can convince one of her cousins to bite her when she turns 18 as well.  She idolizes her father and shares his sense of humor.  She can't wait to get to school but doesnt want to be in the same house as her sister.  Her nannys and governesses are constantly trying to get her to behave in a 'lady like' manner and looking to her father to impose upon her but he just wont.  She has free reign in her fathers house, and the idea of her father getting married again scares the living heck out of her.  Her aunt (_______ Greyback -Spinster sister - 30) is her second favourite person after her father.  The girls are 2 years apart which everyone is taken first will set the age of the other

For Meserimus Valenduris
@Meserimus 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: Troy Sivan

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. 
ISOBEL VALENDURIS

b. CIRCA 16 | UCPB | SLYTER-DOR | PROBABLY PREFECT | Suggested PB: STEFANIE SCOTT

Isobel is smart ambitious, driven and done with all of the male nonsense.  She wants to be Minister of Magic, or Head of Magical Law enforcement, and an inventor, writer, healer and explorer.  She will need to live as long as her grandfather in order to achieve everything she wants to in life.  She is serious, intense and driven.  Her grades will be nothing short of exceptional, she is very hard on herself academically and is fully furious that it doesn’t really matter what she does she will always be limited by her gender. 
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
MORGAN VALENDURIS

b. INCOMING FIRSTIE | UCPB | TBC | ROLE | Suggested PB: OPEN

Irish twin to the actual twins they have ended up in the same school year.  Personality is very open, she speaks Swedish and English, she is proud that her father is the potions professor and is hoping to be in slytherin house.  She does think It’s odd that she has nephews and nieces who are older than her.  She is the only member of the family that her uncle Archimedes likes.  She does have some minor seer abilities
ODETTE VALENDURIS

b. INCOMING FIRSTIES | UCPB | OPEN | CREEPY TWIN | Suggested PB: ANY

Identical twin - A whimsical and odd creature, the elder by exactly 4 minutes, the two have their own language and believe in creatures that they have made up.  The pair are marmite – people either love them or hate them.  She is incredibly smart, gifted even and seems to know answers to things she couldn’t possibly have.  Both sisters are Seers but as yet don’t really know it.
ODILE VALENDURIS

b. INCOMING FIRSTIES | UCPB | OPEN | CREEPY TWIN | Suggested PB: ANY

Like her sister she is an odd bird,
She sometimes forgets that others don’t speak the language that she had ODETTE made up and will sometimes speak in that language when she talks to others.  She likes everyone and has trouble reading social cues, like tone and facial expressions but she is whip smart and seems to uncannily know things.  Both sisters are Seers but as yet don’t really know it.

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

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 choses 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.

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.

Both Alike in Dignity...

STILL LOOKING june 2022
This was a plot I got into with another ex-player and thought I'd expand it a bit

Both the Capulets and Montague are middle class PB families.  Why the two families are fighting - well no one remembers but they are sure it is the other families fault.  The families are originally from Italy several generations back.  Unlike the play this isn't open war in the streets - this is a simmering dislike. 

I have no preconcieved ideas about whether this will proceed as the play does, these are just character jumping off points- maybe Juliet will end up with the PRINCE or TYBALT.  Who knows!

First names are open - even ROMEO/JULIET etc
Faces are open - Montague father is white- otherwise open so biracial is welcome/encouraged

Lord Montague
50+ | MCPB | MARRIED | Ministry Senior/or retired
The father of ''ROMEO'' and uncle of @Benevolence Montague.  Other than hating the Capulets, he worries about his sons job and his prospects in marriage.  He thinks it might be a good idea to arrange a marriage for him given his terrible taste in women.  He is a senior ministry official, law and order is important to him, he has/had a desk job i.e was not an auror or similar.  He is not a blood purist. 

Lady Montague
40+ | MCPB | MARRIED |  Healer or unemployed
Mother of ''ROMEO'', if she is employed it is a healing, or caring profession.  She had completely bought into her husbands hatred of the other family and thinks they are all scum.  She agrees with her husband that her son is likely to make bad choices if left to his own devices and so is actively seeking a wife for him. 

Romeo Montague
25+ | MCPB | SINGLE|  Something 'dashing'
He isn't a play boy in the 'love'em and leave'em sense' but does frequently fall in and out of love - thinking himself madly in love with some deb or other at any given time.  He is Romantic with a capital R and would be the sort to write love letters and be generally smushy.  He and @Benevolence Montague are close, and he is her favourite cousin, she is the voice of sense frequently talking him out of doing anything rash. 

Benvolio Montague
@Benevolence Montague  - a level head, who is constantly talking Romeo out of his bad ideas.  She thinks the whole fued needs to be put to bed!

Balthasar Montague
[/size]20+ | MCPB | SINGLE |  Open
The younger brother of 'ROMEO', he is hot headed and agressive and full of a great deal of family pride.  His job is open but is competitive and extremely ambitious.  He suffers from a little bit of second son syndrome.  He does love his brother but is determined to outshine him in every capacity. 

'Mercutio'
23+ | ACAB | SINGLE |  Probably Quiditchy or curse breaking
A young man  and best friend of 'ROMEO', his job is something dashing and exciting and he is a bit of a playboy.  He encourages all of 'ROMEO'S' bad ideas but they have been best friends since childhood and so there is no separating them now.  He antagonizes situations between the two families because he has no real stake in it.  His wanted can be combined with any other, or tied into another family. 

Lord Capulet
50+ | MCPB | MARRIED | Ministry Senior/or retired
Father of 'JULIET', he is hot headed and strong willed, probably a gryffindor.  He was a physically imposing man in his youth and he remains as such.  He would be quick to duel if he got the chance.  He is not a blood purist.  He could be self-made, or somehow involved in industry, but this is open - however, he probably had a less 'academic' or desk job than L.MONTAGUE. 

Lady Capulet
40+ | MCPB | MARRIED | Open
Very protective of her daughter 'JULIET', she is keen to make a good match for her daughter and is mercenary about it.  She loves to gossip and is a dedicated reader of Witch Weekly.  Ideally, she would like her daughter to marry 'TYBALT', but her husband isn't entirely sold on the idea.  She does not see 'TYBALTS' faults and thinks he is just best young man on the planet! He is the only one who will be good enough for her daughter

JULIET
20+ | MCPB | SINGLE | Debutante, or similarly feminine occupation
Romantic and flighty 'JULIET' is the only child and heir of the CAPULETS.  She is the apple of LORD MONTAGUES eye.  She wants to make a love match, and is fighting her mother's attempts to match make for her with everything she has! She is probably a little bored and frustrated with how mercenary debutante life is.  She wants an organic romance, not something foisted on her by family and obligation. 

NURSE
25+ | MCPB | SINGLE | Chaperone and paid companion
'JULIETS' chaperon and ladies companion.  She is a CAPULET  but from a poorer branch of the family and was taken in by them as a ward at a young age.  She is pragmatic, sensible and plain in comparison to 'JULIET', she wants to marry, but realises her time is running out.  She is JULIETS paid companion and chaperone but she indulges her cousins romantic nature. 

Tybalt
25+ | MCAB | SINGLE | Hitwizard/Unspeakable or similar
A 'cousin' of the Capulets in the broadest sense, he is the son of a cousin of Lady Capulets who died in childbirth.  With no other family, he was been raised in the Capulet household.  He is publically respectable but enjoys underground boxing matches, gambling and dueling.  He is hot headed and more like L.CAPULET than his own daughter.

Hello! I'm still new around here but the Changs took residence in my mind one day and I'd love to share with you if you want. <3

A few easy guidelines;
  • when you decide to apply you can pull from @Ida Chang's history,
  • holler if you want to change big things, have ideas~, or have q's! I'll nearly always say yes,
  • please be somewhat active, if they wind up going inactive without notice I may decide to put them back up here. <3
  • bonus points! for being culturally sensitive or interested in any aspects of Chinese culture, and/or interested in playing with immigrant/children of immigrants angst. Fun fact, that's my own story from South America, and color me biased I think it's a fun way to build character ;)
 
Of course if you see any opportunities for double duty on other asks, don't be a stranger now I'd be happy to add in here.

Chang family
Mr. Mystery Chang

Working MCPB | Age 20ish, can be older | Heir to business | Any house | Irvingly but gets around | PB Suggestion: Chris Pang or Godfrey Gao

The most we've established for @Ida Chang's big brother is that he's assumed to inherit his dad's successful merchant business, and yes I want him to be a bit of a heartthrob. ? Selfishly, I want Ida getting into high society type parties and seeing as she hasn't too many girlfriends of the ilk, she'll insist her big brother act like it for once and be her escort/chaperone. Or does he not want her around for other~ reasons?

How successful he is at any aspect of his life I'll leave to you! Is he a scintillating, deviant, no-good rake? Is he poised to double or triple their income from spending a lot of his time in London and the Far East? Is he diligently seeking a deb to help bring honor to the family name or would he rather not? Does he even want to work in the business and does he resent Ida for not needing to be involved? I always have ideas~ here or am up for a surprise! But you better believe no matter what he picks, Ida is right behind him watching and waiting with bated breath for family drama and a chance to prove to dad she was right all along.
Mr. Mischief Chang

Child | Under 11 or open to 1st and 2nd years | Any house | PB Suggestion: Han Hao Lin

He doesn't need to be your Victorian magical version of Dennis the Menance, but life would be awfully more fun if he was. <3 He has a governess as noted below. He's rather close with his big sister because she's been his mother figure for likely most of his life.

Mr. Patriarch Chang

Working MCPB | Age 40+ | Widower, Merchant | Irvingly but gets around | PB Suggestion: Honestly no idea but here is gratuitous Ken Watanabe <3
So much flex here! I call him Huan Bo but you can call him what you'd like. The main things we've established: the family Patriarch is ballsy enough to move from China and leave everything behind/start over not once, not twice, but three times, he was charismatic and shrewd enough in his endeavors to move up from working class, he really did love his wife before she died (no we don't mind fudging if they stayed in love or how she died), and he's a bit of a traditionalist in terms of gender roles. At least Ida thinks so.

Employed by the Changs
at home
- Governess | MC female

- Housekeeper, one or two | WC female

- Valet | WC male

at business

- Accountant, solicitor, sales | MC, likely males

- Laborers in transport, head and lower-rung | WC, likely males

- Farmer/groundskeep, one or two | WC, likely males

Wanteds for...
ACACIA | ANGELA | CECILIA | CHARLES | ECHO | ROSIE | VERA

~
For Acacia
Acacia Ruskin | Chrysanta Ruskin | Martin Ruskin | Phillip Darlington

Orinda Ruskin

b. 1874 | MC Half-Vampire | Open House | Sixth/Seventh Year '92 | TBD

Youngest daughter from Martin Ruskin's first marriage, her personality is largely open - though she would be unlikely to cause family scandal.
Dunstan Ruskin

b. Pre-September, 1876 | MC Half-Vampire | Open House | Sixth Year '92 | TBD

Dunstan found out on February 28ish, 1890 that his sisters Acacia and Chrysanta had remembered him being dead ever since '87. It was a shocking revelation, and Dunstan counts his blessings every day since. He is a sweet and thoughtful boy, and is likely either Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw.
Zophiel Ruskin p. Sherington née Drago

b. 1856 | MCPB/HB | Open House | Wife of Martin Ruskin | TBD

Like Mr. Ruskin, Zophiel is on her second marriage - though all of her children to date are fully human. Her relationship towards her parents has been largely strained since long before her marriage into the Ruskin family, and the marriage certainly didn't help matters. Now she has since had twins fathered by her current husband, to add to her list of step- and first marriage children to manage.

Despite the Ruskin children's hesitance towards her, she welcomes them with open arms. Other than being open minded and loving, her personality is largely open.
Malachai Sherington

b. 1880 | MCPB/HB | Open House | First/Second Year '92 | TBD

His personality is largely open, along with his opinion on his new siblings.
Ariel Sherington

b. 1884 | MCPB/HB | Sorting Hat Please? | Child | TBD

Her personality is largely open, along with her opinion on her new siblings.
~
For Angela
Angela Montague | Lydia Morozovna | Sophia Voss | Benevolence Montague

Robert Montague

b. 18?? | UCPB | Open House | Open Occupation | TBD

Husband to Angela Montague, and cousin to Benevolence Montague, Robert is a fairly open character - aside from being the type to marry a middle class young lady and make a grand proposal at a Christmas ball.
Eliza "Lily" Montague

b. 1886 | UCPB | Open House | Child | TBD

Angela loves all of her children dearly, and affectionally gives each of them nicknames that they are more likely to go by than not. Her personality is rather open, though she has little room for trouble making.
___ Ivanov

b. September, 1863 | UCPB | Slytherin | Open Occupation | TBD

Eldest of his siblings, he has often been accused of favoring Angela - given their shared house. Whether or not that is actually true is up to player, but he certainly has acted as neutral party on more than one occasion among his siblings.
___ Ivanova

b. 18?? | UCPB | Open House | Deb or Married to ___ | TBD

Only non-triplet sister of the family, she is likely closer to one of the triplets than the others. Personality largely open.
___ Ivanov

b. 18?? | UCPB | Open House | Student/Open Occupation | TBD

Baby of the family. Personality largely open.
~
For Cecilia
Cecilia Bulstrode | Aurelia Bulstrode

Auntie née Bulstrode

b. 18## | UCPB | Open House | Socialite | TBD

Well to do socialite of the UCPB circles, Auntie née Bulstrode was expecting to be done with her official match making duties when her youngest daughter had found a proper match and wed. But fast forward and now her niece has debute and Myron has expressed disinterest in partaking in feminine matters such as this - aside from the blessing of an engagement of course. So now she must deal with a new marriage market for a child who is not her own.
Myron Bulstrode

b. 1838 | UCPB | Open House | Ministry (Wizengamot?) | TBD

Myron was always more suited towards being the father of sons than of the lone daughter that was meant to be his wife's responsibility. So what does he do when his only daughter debutes and his wife is not alive to assist? Why, drag his socialite sister into the matter and leave it at that of course! A high standing member of the UCPB community, he expects the very best matches for his children.
Elisha Bulstrode

b. 1863 | UCPB | Open House | Open Occupation | Max Thieriot

Oldest brother and sibling of the family, he is set to inherit. This does not mean that occupational and social mobility is not expected of him. Now he is of marriageable age, has a stable career, and is expected to find an appropriate wife suitable for the Bulstrode name.
Ephraim Bulstrode

b. 1868 | UCPB | Open House | Open Occupation | Steven R. McQueen

As the second son, Ephraim has an even greater need for connections and financial security than his older brother. Likely in a similar career field to Elisha, Ephraim often disagrees with how his brother handles himself. This could either be professionally, socially, or both.
~
For Charles
Charles Marshall | Naeva Lécuyer

Alice Marshall

b. 1870 | UCPB | Open House | Debutante | TBD

Well-mannered and well spoken, Alice and Charles are the closest of all of their siblings. The sibling that Charles is most likely to confide in, though not in everything. She doesn't know about his condition. But she does know about the exact circumstances of his recent engagement, and isn't Miss Naeva Lécuyer. Currently, she has had several suitors take interest, though has yet to be officially courted. One in particular has taken her fancy. Despite her closeness with her brother and nephew, her views on blood purity in general is open to player. She may be more like Charles, or more under the 'agree to disagree' mentality - thus, any favored suitor would be pure of blood.
Francis Marshall

b. 1873 | UCPB | Open House | Seventh Year '91/Open Occupation | TBD

Second son of the Marshall family, his personality is fairly open. There is a likelihood that he does not favor his brother, after Charles had married the late Melissa Marshall. Should that be the case, their relationship is likely now strained at best.
Cassandra Marshall

b. 1875 | UCPB | Open House | Fifth/Sixth Year '92 | TBD

Youngest in the household, Cassandra's personality is largely open.
~
For Echo
Echo Lowe | Naima Mokani | Ambrosia Selwyn | Trystan Selwyn | Adrienne Selwyn | Cadawalader Selwyn | Anthea Selwyn | Aristide Selwyn | Emrys Selwyn | Angelica Selwyn

Rufus Lowe

b. 1833 | UCPB | Open House | Open Occupation | TBD

Second husband of Echo née Rookwood. Their marriage is viewed as a business arrangement by both parties, at least as far as Echo is concerned. If Rufus has any bastards, they are out of the public eye and absolutely not acknowledged. Details about his first marriage are fairly open - though nothing scandalous, and I would prefer to keep the step-daughters how they are. Key details are that he is a second son of his own family and had no sons before marrying Echo. A primary reason that he remarried was to produce heirs.
Eliza Lowe

b. Post-September 1871 | UCPB | Open House | Debutante | TBD

Like her sisters after her, Eliza was taken out of Hogwarts and placed into Pendergast School for Young Roses after her OWLs (in 1888). She debuted in the year 1891, only to have that debut tainted by Trystan's bastard's marriage. Echo actively tries to arrange a match for her. It is up to player how Eliza feels about all of this.
Julia Lowe

b. 1874 | UCPB | Open House | PSYR Student | TBD

Current student at PSYR, Julia was pulled out of Hogwarts after her OWLs. Even so, Echo does actively look for an arrangement for her. She is set to debut on the year she turns twenty. Her feelings regarding all of this is up to player.
Mary Lowe

b. 1877 | UCPB | Open House | Fourth/Fifth Year ('92) | TBD

Destined to leave Hogwarts after her OWLs, as all of her sisters before her, Mary may feel as she wishes about her predicament. It is unlikely to change her mother's mind either way. It is up to player how she feels about her older step-sister - Naima - or any of her other step-siblings and half-siblings.
Kalyani Mokani

b. 1880 | UCPB | Open House | First/Second Year ('92) | TBD

Despite only being oh so new to Hogwarts, Kalyani may very well look forward to seeing herself in an arrange marriage if Echo has any say in the matter. Her personality is largely open, but she is likely closest to her full-sister, Naima.
Ekavir Mokani

b. 1882 | UCPB | Open House | Child | TBD

Once the baby of the family, now he has two half-siblings to claim that title. How he feels about that is largely open, as is his personality.
~
For Liliana
Liliana Parkinson | Trystan Selwyn | Ambrosia Selwyn | Cadawalader Selwyn | Anthea Selwyn | Adrienne Selwyn | Aristide Selwyn | Emrys Selwyn | Angelica Selwyn

Chester Parkinson

b. 1861 | UCPB | Open House | Open Occupation | Ian Somerhalder

Second oldest son and child of his parents, there wasn't a high expectation on who he married. Still, it was rather a shock to his parents when he elected to choose a bastard for a bride. He has a high enough paying career to suit his wife's lifestyle comfortably. His personality is rather open.
___ Parkinson

b. 1866 | UCPB | Not Slytherin | Open Occupation | Charlie Cox

____ is the fifth child and third son of his parents. He met his wife - Angelique Parkinson - through Liliana and became smitten immediately. His parents were less biased regarding this match as ___ is further down the line, Angelique is not a bastard, and the 'part-veela' rumor has no real substance.
~
For Rosie
Rosie Binns | Isolda Binns | Emma Binns | Zachariah Binns | Juliana Binns

Jacob Mills

b. 1825 | MCHB | Not Slytherin | Open Occupation | TBD

Father of Rosie Binns, Jacob is a strict - yet loving - father. Always concerned over the family reputation, his daughter's ambition had begun to worry him as she got older. When she had expressed interest in a career, he was quick to object to such a thing. While his profession is open, it would likely be a respectable one fitting his class. His house is open, but not Slytherin.
Regina Mills

b. 1832 | MCHB | Open House | Socialite | TBD

Best friends with Agnes Binns for years, they have been visiting often long before either were married or had children. So being in-laws has turned out to be very convenient as an excuse to visit her best friend. While she is not quite sure how she feels about Hugo's social climbing ambitions, she does not regret marrying off her daughter to him. The fact stands that she has likely started bugging Agnes about a match with Juliana and Henry, but it remains to be seen if that would ever lead anywhere. Her house is open, though I'd love it if she was in the same house as her best friend.
Henry Mills

b. 1856 | MCHB | Open House | Open Occupation | TBD

Henry is perhaps the most understanding towards Rosie in their family. Likely the only one to know just how trapped Rosie feels, he is concerned in regard to what she might do with these feelings.
~
For Vera
Vera Morgan | Emerentius Morgan | Desiderius Morgan | Eldritch Morgan | Rhiannon Cameron | Rachel Morgan

This is Vera

b. 1841 | UCHB | Hufflepuff | Socialite | Playby: Rachel Weisz

This is a bit different then most of my adoptables so bare with me. I am not looking for anything strictly specific, but wanted to give Vera's natal family their own post in case anyone was interested.


Father - Born late 1700s or early 1800s. Man of logic and reason. Likely a first or second born son, but I am in no way picky. Likely a Ravenclaw. Honestly, I would enjoy seeing him as a Hogwarts professor, but can definitely see him on the Wizengamot. His main vibe is humoring his wife until her ideas go too far - i.e. he'll send his daughter(s) to a French finishing school, but won't outright move to France. He is conservative.

Mother - While a well-to-do socialite, she does have an borderline eccentric reliance on divination and seers - she is not one. A frequent visitor of France, she often makes mention to her husband and close friends about wishing to move there. The family likely bought a townhouse there that she has settled on visiting at least once a year. She is conservative.

Siblings 1 through 3 and 5 through 7 - Vera is fourth of seven children. No genders or distinct ages have been specified other than that 1-3 were born before 1841 and 5-7 were born after. While all named by naming seers, their names can vary - as can the accuracy of how the name fits the sibling. Houses are open. Up to character creation, little to no scandal preferred. While the family image is conservative, each individual siblings private opinions may vary. Open marriages, open surnames. Additional marital connections and nieces/nephews for Vera are encouraged.
Show
Mrs. "French"

b. 1840-1843 | UCAB | Attended Beauxbatons | Socialite | Kathryn Hahn

Mrs. "French" grew up in, well, France. She attended Beauxbatons Academy and later went to a local finishing school to complete her education. During her time there - whether that was her first year or not - she ended up in the same dorm as Vera. Despite Vera's ultimate failure to adjust, the two became quite close and wrote to each other for several years after the fact.

Mrs. "French" has since then married - whether to a fellow France resident or an English man - and relocated to magical Britain. Vera was her general introduction into British society. Her family - both marital and natal - are up to player, but she has to be of good reputation.

All play-bys are open to you, I just ask that they look related to the characters in their family. I am fairly flexible with whatever you would like to do to make the character your's, I just ask you let me know what you are planning on changing.

PM @Sisse Thompsett to reserve before creating. I reserve the right to hold the reservation for only a week before I open it again. Thanks!

Galina’s Past
For @Galina

”Boris”
Vampire | A World of Experience | 250+
Few people know Galina’s past, let alone her origin, but her Maker does. When Galina met Boris it was in the Russian court at the invite of the then Tsarina (Princess) Catherine. Galina does not know his actual name, only that he was from the Northern Reaches of Prussia - if that was where he was actually from at all. The Boris that Galina knew was a light hearted dandy, cheerful, and protective of Catherine. He also was interested in Galina’s brother. Galina enjoys the fact that he often debated with her and that he seemed intellectual and well learned as well as fun. When smallpox hit the palace and Galina caught it he tells her of what he is and allows her to make the choice - die or be turned. Galina takes his offer to be turned and they both have to escape from the Palace. After a few days on the run Boris disappears and Galina never sees him again.

If he is picked up he should be new to the area.

Suggested play by: Aaron Taylor Johnson

The Thompsett Family

For Miss @Sisse Thompsett

Matthew Thompsett, Sr.
MCPB | Gryffindor | b. 1841

Born 1841 to a pureblood family, Mr. Thompsett attended all seven years of Hogwarts as a Gryffindor, before taking an internship with the ministry. He now works in the ministry in a job that Sisse has never quite figured out (i.e. up to you). He his a respectable man and worked his way up the ranks until he was able to support a family. He met his wife in 1873 and the two were set to marry within the first two months of their courtship. At the exposure of the wizarding world he moved his family to Hogsmeade in 1871. He is respected by his children and is more lenient that his wife in regards to what they can and can't do. He is frugal and most of his personality is up to whomever would like to play him. After the loss of his wife at the Sanditon Resort Season Closer in a spliching accident in 1891 he is withdrawn and has let his eldest son pick up most of the responsibilities.
#doubleup not quite a wanted
I've mentioned him as high up in ministry so an Assistant Head of the Dept. Magical Transportation, or another ministry head position would easily pair with him.

Matthew Thompsett, Jr.
MCHB | Recent Grad | b. 1872

The oldest Thompsett child Matthew was born in 1872. He attended Hogwarts starting in 1883 and was sorted into Gryffindor. He's described in Sisse's posts as your typical popular boy, with lots of friends and an attitude to go with it. He also is known for thinking himself much more mature than his younger siblings. He loves exploding snap and quidditch but is afraid of flying (not a well known fact). After the death of his mother in the fall of 1891 he has stepped into the role of man of the house.

Henry J. Thompsett
MCHB | Fourth Year GRYN/PUFF | b. 1877

The youngest of the Thompsett brood, Henry was closest with Sisse until she went to Hogwarts. His personality is largely open but he should have a good relationship with his older sister. He is available to apply for prefect this upcoming school year [1892].

The Delaney Staff
For Miss @Caroline Darrow, @Evander Darrow, & @Anthony Delaney

Caroline and her brother came from London to further the Delaney shipping name. Their staff is handpicked and groomed from their father's employees.

"Hope", the Maid
WCAB | American | 20-23
Hope and Caroline grew up together as such they are as close as thieves now. If Caroline's up to some kind of trouble you can bet that Hope is in on it. They may not have gone to school together but Hope has some education. She and her family are also very loyal to the Delaneys and she would have been raised for this position. She is from Boston and is from the working class. And is very friendly with Anthony (perhaps she has a crush on him?). When Caroline got married Hope moved with her to Caroline's new home in Irvingly.

For Ned
Mses. [Caris] & Idris Oakby
B. 1870 & 1872

Ned’s girls - check out the canon list. The older one is a squib and younger one a squib right activist/suffragette. My mental placeholder for them is Jane and Elizabeth Bennet.
Mrs. [Rhosyn] née Oakby
B. before 1841

Married (not necessarily happily) with kid(s). Lost household member(s) in the laughing plague of 1884, and this was blamed on Glen.

Double duty:  Emilia Wright (estranged family galore)?
Mrs. [Brunella] Oakby
B. between 1844-c.1850

Ned’s wife who “ran away with another woman” in 1879. Who really knows what happened?  (I ship her with Rhos.)
Mr. [Glendowen] Oakby
B. between 1838-1841

A golden boy who couldn’t keep up with the expectations, stumbled from scandal to scandal, and hasn’t been in touch with the family since 1884. See also additional plot idea.


For Thea

The Twycrosses! Especially the dad. I'd love to learn what sort of man married Professor Twycross.

For Daphne Hawthorne
@Daphne Hawthorne

FIRST HAWTHORNE


b. 1883 | UCPB | Open House | Child (8 YRS) | Suggested PB: Tom Sweet

This is Daphne's little brother! His name, face claim, and even future house are all open. I'll just call him Tom for the sake of this description. Tom was only six years old when his and Daphne's parents died in the boating accident and he and his sister were rescued from the water and were sent to live with their grandmother, so while he remembers his parents, there's a lot he finds himself asking his older sister about. The Elder Mrs. Hawthorne dotes on him especially, as he reminds her of Tom's father, her son, and she tends to let him get away with a lot, but at the same time, she's very much on him about being a proper little gentleman. Daphne often takes him with her on outings, especially to Honeydukes as they both have a big sweet tooth, however, Tom has a bad habit of swiping sweets from the shop when nobody is looking. He also thinks Daphne is bossy because she's always scolding him for things and insists on holding his hand all the time. He's looking forward to her going off to Hogwarts in September so he won't have her bothering him all the time.

ELDER MRS. HAWTHORNE


b. 1837 | UCPB | Open House | Daphne & Brother's Caretaker | Suggested PB: Meryl Streep

This is Daphne's Grandmother! Her name, face claim, and past house are all open. I also am open to negotiating an age? I just know she's a grandmother and I want her to be the strict, elderly type so I put her at approximately 55 years old. I'll just call her Meryl for the sake of this description. Meryl was always a strict, no-nonsense kind of woman who ran the household far more than her late husband ever did. She always believed he was too soft on their only son when he should be tough and too tough when he should be soft. This behavior caused her son, Daphne's father to run off and marry the first woman he found - Miss Rosalind Howard from the United States. Meryl hated Rosalind, she hated Americans, and she was always disapproving of literally everything she did. When her son and her daughter-in-law passed away in the boating accident (which, of course, she blamed Rosalind for), she took in Daphne and her brother to raise. She has ambitions for Daphne to go to a finishing school when the time comes and for her to be the most elegant debutante, and be as little like her mother as possible, and for Daphne's brother to have far more sense than her late son and she tends to dote on him a bit more.

The Daphnels
Victor here is quite enamored of his family and would do anything for them. Unfortunately, he'll be dying soon, which will leave them in a bit of a bind. Dad is alive, by the way, he's just an eccentric academic and decided to go off and live the expat researcher life while his family does their best to carry on without him.

Kate Daphnel — formiddable socialite and loving mother, Kate may have met her match in her only daughter, Beatrice. Her daughter has consumed most of her attention for the past few years, something that Victor hopes he can relieve once he's safely married. At the very least, he assumes his being 'settled' will give her one less thing to worry about, even if he isn't able to be much help in getting Bea settled.

Melvin Daphnel — in the range of 23-28 years old, Melvin is the second-born son. He lives comfortably at the Daphnel home in Wellingtonshire, but should probably have plans to strike out on his own sooner or later. Unbeknownst to him, he is destined to take over as heir and sort-of head of the family when Victor shuffles off the mortal coil later this year.

Beatrice Daphnelbetween 18 and 23 years old — she debuted in 1890 but her age at the time of her debut is open, as is whether or not she finished Hogwarts or attended finishing school. Beatrice gets on well with her family, but has crippling social anxiety that has made her experience on the marriage market so far a living hell. While her family tries their best to support her, all of their efforts to push her out into society and get her interacting with potential husbands just make things worse for her. She may be on the verge of doing something desperate. Or maybe not, however you want to play her. Reserved for Nichole!

Oscar Daphnel — a recent Hogwarts graduate (17-21 years old) with ambitious plans for his life. Probably plans that require quite a bit of money, which as the third son he isn't exactly entitled to. He will likely try to convince everyone in the family to fund his ambitions at some point.

the Twycrosses
(The only information I'm putting in these ads are Dot's thoughts on her family members; ALMOST EVERYTHING is open about them and I don't even particularly care if these are accurate or just her misconceptions. Basically: do you want into this family? Then go wild. Sibling order/gender/amount is also changeable as long as Dot stays the youngest)

Father || Despite my best efforts I've always felt Father has never truly understood me — a touch too conservative to see beyond his expectations, I think — but for all our disagreements he has done his best to love me. Or so Mama always says.

Mama || [@Theodosia Twycross] Where would I be without my dear Mama? She has always believed the best in me and she's the reason I am where I am today. I do think that makes some of my older siblings a bit... is jealous the word? Perhaps.

Russell || He was always so distrustful of Aunt Leona, and for the longest time I couldn't understand why. Now, I think it's mostly because he's too much like father — he's too traditional, though he wouldn't like to admit it. Aunt Leona is a woman of science, so of course she's never been at home in England, and I think that made him nervous.

Harriet || Poor Harry — she seems to think that me having anything good in life is a sign that she won't have the same, which of course has always put us at odds. I pity her, honestly.

Leonard || Now Leo really is a good sport! He even wrote me letters all the years I was abroad at school. I think he takes after Mama the most out of all of our siblings. He's certainly got the most heart.


Beautiful set by Kit!
