Plottable Characters
#1
Adopt & Plot!

Members are encouraged to post any adoptable characters needed for specific plots here. Remember to state why the character is needed, such as “Stuart is a potential love interest for Lorraine”, or even “TOP SECRET FAMILY SHENANIGANS TO COME GET READY YO”—“I want my mother because she’s my mother” is better suited for our Adoptable 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.

CAN YOUR NEEDS BE MET BY AN EXISTING CHARACTER?
Try Lonely Plots instead!


PMs on this account will not be checked.
Instead, please contact @Ursula Black, @Aldous Crouch, @Cassius Lestrange, @Elias Grimstone, @Amelia Evans, @Marlena Scamander, or @Elsie Kirke with any questions, issues, or concerns.

Kayte's Plottables

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 loosing 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.
If you have any questions about any of the characters below, fire off a PM to @Aldous Crouch, catch me on skype, or stalk me in the cbox ;)

Wanteds for...
BLYTHE | CLEMENTINE | ELINOR | MADELINE
Below, you’ll find requests that I need for a specific thing for a specific character. Go figure. They are different from my other wanteds in that they are not blood relations and there is some sort of arc in sight. So that’s exciting.

~
For Blythe
Someone call 9-9-9! As you may know, Blythe works at the Hogsmeade constabulary...and at the time of writing this, is the only person who does! (For shame!) I aim to fix that with these delightful offerings. The constabulary deals with petty crime (thievery, arson, bar brawls, prostitution), but anything more intense (read: fun) such as serial killers gets tossed up to the Ministry of Magic. As such, the people in its employ are reasonably reputable (7+) and have had some magical schooling (5+ years), but are not the cream of the crime-fighting crop.

"HENRY"
[Image: BkXgibp.jpg?1]
B. 1840-1855 | WCMB | OPEN HOUSE | POLICE CONSTABLE
Though always the constable, never the chief constable, "Henry" is something of a paternal figure at the constabulary, trying to guide the lads as best as he can within the framework of his position. It was actually he that originally told Blythe the secretary position was available as he also attends the Church of Magical Jesus. PB is HELLA open but pictured is Sterling K. Brown.

Immediate Ties: @Blythe Fairchild, @Benjamin Woodcroft
Bonus Ties: @Adam Ragge, @Earth Beck, @Temperance Fairchild, and any other members of the CMJ!

"DANIEL"
[Image: C4awBE4.jpg?1]
B. 1835-1865 | WCAB | SLYTHERDOR | POLICE CONSTABLE
After flunking out of auror training, "Daniel" was far too embarrassed to find other Ministry of Magic work, and instead put his knowledge to use 'saving' the citizens of Hogsmeade. He thinks himself far more qualified than the Chief Constable and can be something of a blowhard, but his heart is in the right place and he always comes through in a pinch. PB is HELLA open but pictured is Chris Messina.

Immediate Ties: @Blythe Fairchild, @Benjamin Woodcroft
Potential Ties: Age-appropriate aurors.

"JACK"
[Image: 4dbHYqo.jpg?1]
B. 1863-1868 | WCAB | HUFFLECLAW | POLICE CONSTABLE
Relatively new (think spring '90 or more recent) to the constabulary, "Jack" tried to find joy working in his father's shop (honest!), but eventually had to disappoint his family by protecting and serving instead (how dare he!). He is a very earnest youth, if a bit of a romantic at heart (the first time he had to deal with a prostitute was, reportedly, a hilarious sight to behold). PB is HELLA open but pictured is Daniel Portman.

Immediate Ties: @Blythe Fairchild, @Benjamin Woodcroft
Double Duty: "Aspen", "Joe", George Robins

~
For Clementine
Clementine's marital clock is ticking. Her brother will be pulling her out of school(?!) once her sisters are seen to—who better to enlist to help her than her best friend?

"PORTIA"
[Image: 2aF2vgM.jpg]
B. 1873-1874 | MCAB/UCAB | HUFFLEPUFF | SIXTH YEAR ('90)
Clementine met "Portia" just after their sorting, and the two were fast friends. Their natures compliment one another—"Portia" is measured while Clementine is headstrong, focused while Clementine is flighty, and both are deeply loyal to those they care about. "Portia" is probably happy to settle into the typical life of a young lady inevitably, but also harbors a desire to see the world and to find a way to leave her mark upon society (an appropriate mark, of course!). How she feels about Clementine's light sabotage is up to you, but she should agree to help out (at least at first!), however hesitantly. PB is hella open, but pictured is Anna Cathcart.

Immediate Ties: @Clementine Greengrass
Bonus Ties: @Hermia Bonaccord
Potential Ties: Other Hogwarts students & faculty, as appropriate
Double Duty: Alexandra Boggart, Isolda Binns

~
For Elinor
----- GOYLE
[Image: UzE2f7x.jpg?1]
B. 1860 | MCPB | SLYTHINDOR | WIFE
----- and Elinor grew up together, and though they were different in nature—bold vs. reserved, impulsive vs. thoughtful—they were very close until their Hogwarts years, and still moderately close even then. It was, therefore, the height of betrayal when ----- did not stand by Elinor when she and Frederick became engaged. ----- later went on to marry Amos Goyle, though Nora didn’t learn this until many years later.

Wanted to plot out some decade-old drama because #yolo. What her marriage is like etc. is up to the first person to pick up a half of the happy(?) couple. Pictured PB is Anna Camp but this is flexible as long as her family had been in England for at least three generations.

Can't commit long term? This character can be a temporary!

Immediate Ties: @Elinor Goyle
~
For Madeline
ENEMIES TO...TBD? Maddy and Errol do not get along. I want to explore this.

"ERROL"
[Image: 605aHSW.jpeg]
B. 1873-1875 | WCAB | NOT GRYFFINDOR | SEE INSIDE
Much of Errol's personality and background is quite open. Only the following are required to meet my particular needs:
  • Works at Quality Quidditch Supplies. This could be either a summer gig if you'd like him to be at Hogwarts, or his current profession if a dropout or never-went.
  • A mutual dislike with Maddy. Maybe he finds her obnoxious (and shows it), doesn't believe women should play quidditch, or is even just vehemently opposed to the Wimbourne Wasps. Any of the above would make it mutual xD
  • At least a smidge full of himself
PB is hella open, but pictured is Gaten Matarazzo.

Immediate Ties: @Madeline Bell
Potential Ties: Quidditch & flying enthusiasts; age-appropriate students

For @Ishmael

Ishmael doesn't often turn people into vampires, but when he does, it's usually because he's gotten attached. He met these two - at different times - while they were still human, magic or muggle, and has either seen them on and off since then or they've fallen off his radar for a while and showed up in Britain out of the blue. Their backstories are very flexible, as they will be younger than Ishmael but can be from anywhere between then and now, be it from Revolutionary America, turn-of-the-century France, or basically anywhere from Britain, Europe, or Asia. I'd prefer you to talk to me first, obviously, so we can hash out the details - but I'm very open! These characters can be either permanent or temporary, depending on what you want to do with them: either way, come join the vamp!drama!

VAMPIRE BROMANCE

B.???? | WC VAMPIRE | PB: OPEN

This dude once helped Ishmael out of a bind, and they became friendly after that. In fact, they were such bros that when this guy got in a life-threatening situation, Ishmael got sentimental and rescued him from his untimely deathbed. Or that's how Ishmael remembers it. This guy is much less cool with being a vampire than Ishmael is; being a good, honest, moral person, he has issues with drinking people's blood and may well have a lot of #angst if he has killed people in the past. Understandably, this has caused a bit of a rift in their friendship - Ishmael just wants him to lighten up and have fun so they can continue to be bros eternally. Pictured is Jake Gyllenhaal but face is totally open, depending on their background.


For @Ester Montgomery (& "The Degenerates")


THE ARTIST

B.?? | MCAB | PB: OPEN

Since her first scandalous affair with a pornographer, Ester has made a habit of hanging around with men in ~artistic circles, and here is one of them! “Raphael” all but considers himself a Renaissance painter reincarnated, an artistic genius who’ll go down in history. At some point in his life he chose to immerse himself fully in his passion for painting, though while he awaits his critical success in the galleried world, he may help make ends meet by offering above-board portrait sittings, dabbling in photography (and pornography), and perhaps private lessons as an art tutor. While on the surface a perfectly respectable character, he straddles society worlds between the upper and lowest classes - obviously, because he is also (privately) friends with Ester. She often gets modelling work for and through him. Need a character for those SEXY ART PARTIES, ANYONE? ;) More charming than he is romantic, he will however go to any lengths to pursue a new muse when he finds himself ‘inspired’ by a perfect new face, even if it means ambushing them in the street. Face is totally open, but pictured is Oscar Isaac.

THE HARLOT

B.?? | WCAB | PB: OPEN

Unlike Ester, who grew up comfortably, “Georgiana” had a tough childhood, and emerged from it under no illusions about the world, but with an uncanny knack of always landing on her feet. A prostitute by profession, though she dips her toe into the modelling world as well, she and Ester enjoy butting heads about their differences and occasionally squabble over men, but for all their bickering they are best friends, and Ester trusts her more than anyone else. Pictured is Billie Piper.



For @Jude Wright

EMILIA WRIGHT

B.1836 | UCHB/PB | PB: CATE BLANCHETT

Jude's mother. Emilia comes from a generally traditional/conservative upper class family. Although she and her husband got along reasonably enough, it was probably an advantageous match more than one of affection -  and, for whatever reason, they only had one child. Unfortunately for them, that child was Jude. Precocious as a kid and painfully opinionated as a teenager, he didn't make it easy for them to be the typical hands-off UC parents, but things only got worse after he'd graduated Hogwarts, butting heads with his father and derailing far too many dinner parties with socialist rhetoric and other distressing things. Worried about their standing in their social circles, they basically tell him to shape up or ship out - Jude does the latter, moves away to London, and basically ignores his parents' existence as much as humanly possible. At first, at least, they do the same to him - but they come across as perhaps too soft to disown him properly, as when Michael dies of the Laughing Plague in 1884, his will passes on the family estate and inheritance on to Jude as though nothing has happened. (No one is best pleased about this.)

Emilia herself may continue to live on the estate, rent somewhere in Hogsmeade/London, or some combination of both. Her personality is largely open, as is her Hogwarts house, what she does with herself since her husband's death, and how her feelings have or have not changed. I imagine her own rep/social standing has probably suffered somewhat since her socialite wife days, and she may have gravitated towards new friendships or interests as a widow. At some stage in her life, she might even have liked to have a career of her own - but as a married UC woman, didn't follow through - so maybe she's thinking about that again! Maybe she's even becoming more liberal! ;) Regardless, I think it would be interesting if Emilia tried to bridge the gap with Jude and gradually repair their relationship - but I'm pretty open to seeing how things develop!  

(Her natal family situation is also up to you, since Jude probably holds the title of 'Angry Gay Cousin' and doesn't see much of the extended family anymore.) Suggested face is Cate Blanchett, but open to alternatives as long as they're blonde/blue-eyed.

Kelly's Plottables
  1. Please let me know that you wish to reserve a character before apping or registering them! I prefer to take a look at the app before they are registered. Reserves last up to a month, though feel free to ask for an extension.
  2. Suggested PBs are just that—suggested—but please run alternative PBs by me before reserving them!
  3. If you drop a character suddenly and without notice, they go back up for adoption. I'm willing to keep a character under your name if you have to drop them temporarily.
  4. I reserve the right to refuse adoption.
    Updated: June 14, 2021
Bree is magical and let me copy this for my own adoptables.
I have characters labeled in levels of priority. This doesn't necessarily mean I don't want the "low priority" characters made, but rather that they're less intertwined with my character's doings at the current moment! I'd still love to seem them played if you're interested!
  • A "High Priority Character" is one whose actions are directly tied to the actions of my character at the current moment and likely have the ability to make decisions that could affect the fate of my character. Such characters might be parents to unmarried women, potential love interests, etc.
  • A "Medium Priority Character" is a one who is probably mentioned as an NPC somewhere and would be good to have around for current doings, but whose actions and involvement wouldn't likely directly affect whatever plots are happening. Such characters may be members of a friend group, relatives who they rely on for advice but not support, etc.
  • A "Low Priority Character" is one who likely isn't involved with the day-to-day doings with my character, likely because they have a life separate from my character. They may be a younger sister off at finishing school or Hogwarts, a married brother off with his own family, etc.
The Lukeson Family

LUCAS LUKESON

b. 1845 | UCPB | Something Snobbish | Suggested PB: ---
High Priority Character

Second son and second oldest of his family, Lucas has always suffered from an unnecessary Middle Child Syndrome. While he accepted his brother as a fit heir as they grew up, that all changed when Ryder was bitten and turned into a werewolf. His own sister made him take an unbreakable vow to 'never speak of the family secrets unless only in the presence of fellow Lukesons'. He has been bitter of this ever since.

Flash forward and Ryder dies suddenly, leaving a heavily pregnant widow. Out of frustration and determination to get the money that he feels is rightfully his, he decides to arrange a plan to have his own sister-in-law kidnapped and later held for ransom. While things don't go according to plan, several memory charms and unbreakable vows leaves Lucas in the clear from being identified by his accomplices. The question is, what shall Lucas do now that his plan has failed? And will there be a discovery of his actions?

The only two houses I can personally see him in are Ravenclaw or Slytherin, but one may break the stereotype and go for a Hufflepuff or Gryffindor. He only has daughters and this adds to his bitterness.

SHONA LUKESON

b. 1873 | UCPB | Sixth/Seventh Year ('90) | Suggested PB: ---
Medium Priority Character

Shona has always received the blunt bitterness of her father's frustration for a lack of living sons. During her younger brother's life, things were completely fine, so it felt like an utter shock when her father suddenly turned cold after Gile's death in 1881. Due to this, she prefers more contact with her cousins for their kindness and support. I can even see her reaching out to Edgar Rey II, even if they are not directly related. Reserved for Elaine

❧ Bonus Ties: @Lucille Lukeson
❧ Potential Ties: Check out the Hogwarts Roster for fellow students of her year!

MAIRI LUKESON

b. 1876 | UCPB | Third/Fourth Year ('90) | Suggested PB: ---
Medium Priority Character

While not the main focus of her father's bitterness, she certainly does feel the tension in the family. But she secretly feels that their father truly hates her more due to the fact that her mother died giving birth to her. Shona and Mairi have never truly been close as a result. Mairi tends to not stick how she feels about anyone for very long. One minute she could be kind and sweet to one of her cousins, and perhaps a day later she could be rather upset with them for the most unreasonable of things. This has caused her to have a strained relationship with not only family, but friends as well.

❧ Bonus Ties: @Lucille Lukeson
❧ Potential Ties: Check out the Hogwarts Roster for fellow students of her year!

ELIZA LUKESON

b. 1850 | UCPB | Open | Suggested PB: ---
Medium Priority Character

The sister that made her own brother make an unbreakable vow to protect the other, Eliza is a very loyal member of her family. Close to both brothers while growing up, she grew closer to Ryder after he became a werewolf. It's negotiable if she knows about Ace's condition. Why she is a spinster is up to player.

Fergus Andrew Wallace

[Image: ezgif-6-677b91e77193.jpg]
1880 | Middle Class | Halfblood | Bastard & Mischief Maker

Fergus is the bastard son of @Wallace Murphy. His mother died in childbirth, and her last words were "Fergus Andrew Wallace." Murphy isn't quite sure if she intended Wallace as the boy's surname or if she was simply stating whom the boy's father was, but it ended up being the name given to the child.

Murph took Fergus in as a baby, and he raised the boy at the zoo in Colorado that he's a shareholder of. Fergus grew up with tutors and a woman who was hired to take care of him while his father was off on research ventures. Despite his father's occasionally long absences, he always made time for the boy and often invited him to the job site for at least a few days at a time. The boy is very experienced in working with creatures; he has helped at the zoo since he turned six.

July 1890, they made a trip across the sea to visit Eva, Beau, and the rest of the boys from the Arizona team for the QWC. Dreading the boat ride and taking a liking to the zoo in Irvingly, Wallace has fixed to stay.) Not to mention, he wants to keep an eye on Eva and Beau.) This means that Fergus has attended Irvingly School and will be heading to Hogwarts in 1891.

He is somewhat like his father, personality-wise. He's adventurous, rough around the edges, and kind. He is very close with his father; they tease each other mercilessly. Despite the fact Murphy hopes Fergus follows in his footsteps, he's incredibly supportive of whatever path his son chooses to follow

Play-by is flexible, but pictured is Christopher Convery who looks like he could be related to Murphy. He could be of any race, as long as he has a semi-resemblance to Wallace. He could even possibly be First Nations! Sladen Peltier is an option. I love finding kiddo play-bys, so I'm happy to help, if needed!

Marlowe Forfang
Still seeking: July 2021

TWO POSSIBLE ROUTES; EXISTING CHARACTERS OR COMBINATIONS WITH OTHER ADS SUPER WELCOME!

Route A: No, that's my pseudonym! Someone takes credit for Juliana's work. Are they trying to discredit it? Bolster their own academic portfolio? Hide the fact that they're a werewolf and were nearly discovered by giving themselves a plausible excuse for being out on full moons? Give credence to some far-fetched creature-related claim they're invested in making? The choice is yours. This can be any new or existing character but for best results should have some combination of these traits which would make them look like a more likely candidate for Marlowe Forfang than Juliana: male; middle aged or older; good (complete) education; scholar/academic; relevant life experience; upper class; etc.

I have a few plot notions for the near future but no particular endgame!

Route B: Identity theft This gentleman (or person who presents as such) can be any age and from any background, but shouldn't be recognizable on sight in society. He has recently decided to introduce himself as Professor Marlowe Forfang, groundbreaking lycanthropy researcher. His motive for doing so is up to you but some ideas are included below. After being exposed to some other people in the academic community, however, he quickly realizes he's in over his head. Juliana is torn between being livid that he stole her work and wanting to expose him (but not knowing how to do so without exposing herself as well) and wanting to sort of My Fair Lady him into a semi-presentable academic so that he doesn't entirely destroy her credibility as a researcher.

Shenanigans will abound. I don't have an endgame in mind but don't see this as a super temporary character, so if you're interested in taking him you should be in for the long-ish haul. Existing characters (with or without retcons) are welcome!

Pictured PB is Arjun Gupta but it's open to anyone.

Potential motives for the identity theft:
— He wants a steady job and is using Forfang's credentials to apply for a position as: Hogwarts CoMC, DADA, or Magical Theory professor; Ministry's DR&CMC; Ministry's Research Committee; contrator for some sort of company who could use a 'werewolf expert' for some upcoming task like a trip through the Balkans; etc.
— He wants to collect some modest income from staging bullshit Q&A sessions or book signings.
— He wants to live large on the reputation piece (because living off credit was totally a feasible thing in this era if you were respected enough).
— He's pulling off some totally unrelated scam and using the fake name to engender trust in his target/mark.
— He's trying to court/marry someone whose parents wouldn't approve and he's therefore reinvented himself as Forfang thinking they'll be more on board with that.
— He needed a clean start after some shady background stuff and just happened upon this reclusive academic and thought it'd be a good fit.

Well-Meaning Mother:  Agnes Binns
[Image: ezgif-3-37b6db567694.jpg]
1832 | Gryffindor | Middle Class | Any Blood | Any Profession
Pictured is Mary-Louise Parker, but her play-by is open

Agnes is the mother of @Zachariah Binns, @Juliana Binns, and Hugo Binns.  She is well-meaning, but she is a bit of a helicopter parent.  She tries to be very involved in her children's lives, which is met with mixed opinions from said children.  She is always seeking to visit with them and nudging her two unwed younger offspring toward suitable matches.  She is a doting grandmother, adventurous, and intelligent in her own right.  Her flaw is that she cares very deeply about her children. However, above all else, she is kind.

There is a lot of potential for future drama.
Whizzhard Books Manager or Other Employee
[Image: 3bc912593050c20f150b5aa817f0b916.gif]
Manager: 21 or Older, Working Class, Full-Time
Other Employee: 16 or Older, Working Class, Can Work Part-Time

I am hoping to find people to work at Whizzhard Books!  Zach is about to go through some life changing shit, and he's going to be through some serious ups and downs of mood swings.  It'll be hilarious to have someone who notices and is either concerned or gives him shit about it.  This also opens up a lot of opportunities to thread with a large variety of people in the shop!  While the manager generally handles much of the day-to-day operations and events, Zach also employs others to work at the counter actually selling the books or organizing/cleaning.

I am open to all of your ideas.  I also have some of my own of the type of people who I imagine might work there whether full or part-time.  Poke me if you'd like to pick my brain.  <3


Hugo Binns
1850 | Gryffindor | Upper Middle Class | Halfblood
Any Lucrative Profession

Zachariah and Hugo don't always see eye-to-eye. Hugo has a somewhat dominating personality, while Zachariah is a bit more welcoming and open. Hugo often scoffs at his brother's "achievements," and he seems to engage in a one-sided competition about who is doing better. He has moved up in the ranks, and is on the cusp of moving up a class due to either his profession and/or business ventures. He doesn't understand having passion for his line of work, for he's more concentrated about the money and power output. He's a somewhat domineering father who shows his love in strange ways. He tends to treat his little sister like a child. He has a tense relationship with his wife. This is likely his fault.
Play-by that has dark hair and light or dark eyes.

His sister @Juliana Binns and niece @Emma Binns are played.

He and Meserimus have known each other  a long time, he has come to London austensibly to work on a research  project with Meserimus.  He is staying in Meserimus Hogsmeade home with him and his family for the summer. 

The pair are researching the intersection between potions and alchemy, specifically if potions can be used to augment the purity and efficacy of alchemical works (Get better quality gold through the use of potions) and to see if potions transmuted potions ingrediants work better or worse than a real item.  The aim being that it would be useful/easier to transmute a common substance into a rare potions ingrediant

THE EX-LOVER

b. 1858-1860 | Born MCAB | Open House | Open Occupation | Suggested PB: Rupert Friend/Open

This man was Victory's friend since his early years at Hogwarts and their friendship blossomed into a romance in their later teen years. They were committed lovers for ten years starting from 1874 until they were forcibly torn apart in early 1884 by Bravery, Victory's brother who had caught them. Victory was confined to a room in his house while Bravery paid off a constable to have Victory's lover arrested whilst keeping Victorys name out of things. Whether it was for outright homosexuality or he was framed for some random crime is up to you! Either way, he was imprisoned from 1884 until 1891, when he got released. Victory's letters were blocked from ever reaching him and similarly, his letters never reached Victory. It is up to the writer who takes him what he thinks happened there. Victory personally assumes his lover just never wanted to contact him.

He was on the less well off end of the middle class (hence Bravery's ease at causing him to be locked up for several years) and his current class would depend on if his family disowned him for his imprisonment & his financial standing after being released from prison.

Will I eventually be writing up these unsent letters so that we can possibly have a Notebook-esque scene? You betcha.

THE SCHOOL FLAME

b. PRE-SEPT 1869 | WCAB | LEFT AFTER OWLS | OWLS LEVEL OCCUPATION | OPEN PLAYBY

While being hit with nostalgia on the old board while reading the threads of one of Clarissas more intense ships, I have decided to make this ad to give Clarissas love life some drama. This is definitely meant to be a romantic interest for Clarissa. This boy was in the same year as Clarissa and horrid at all things Etiquette which is one of the required Hogwarts classes for all years. So, he asked her for help in their fifth year which she provided gladly despite this being one of the first times she had ever been spoken to by him.

This boy was generally brutish in nature but was swiftly attracted to Clarissa and was quickly intent on wooing her despite knowing she is way beyond his social means. The fact that he had competition in the form of an upper class Slytherin in Clarissas year seemed to only encourage him and he felt that it was unfair he should be out of the running because of current lack of wealth. They eventually had an intense emotional affair of sorts and Clarissa even let him kiss her hand once. Scandalous!

All this transpired during their fifth year and he left after taking his OWLs. They likely have written one another since then and he has done his best to put in place building blocks for an upward mobile career of some sort. The thing I had in mind was that now that she has debuted and no longer in the safety net of Pendergast School, he will be seeking to pick up where they left off.

MARVOLO GAUNT

b. 1870 | WCPB | Slytherin Dropout | Open Occupation | Suggested PB: Bill Skarsgard

He attended Hogwarts in September of 1881 and so has a pre-September birthday in 1870. He stopped attending Hogwarts after finishing his third year. He is a parseltongue and betrothed to Morgana. She is devoted to him and he, in turn, worships her but tends to be jealous of her capabilities. He is unlikely to be mentally sound and is prone to violent outbursts if he perceives someone as being disrespectful to him. He and Morgana were married on January 1st, 1891.

Marvolo is a canon on the canon list so be sure to reserve him there!

THE ROOMMATE

WCAB | Any | Any| Suggested PB: Jacob Bixenman but Open

Garrett sought out a roommate back in October 1888 and sometime after that but before December 1889, this young man took up the offer. When Garrett found out about his almost-lovers death in January 1890, this guy was there for him even though he didn't know why Garrett was seemingly in some sort of mourning. One instance of comforting even ended with the both of them falling asleep in each others arms, oops. Since then mutual romantic and sexual tension has been growing between the two of them with both ends thinking it isn't mutual.

I have Jacob Bixenman pictured because he was once Troye Sivan's (Garretts FC) rl boyfriend but pb is wide open. This could even be an existing character if they fit the bill and timeline!

WCAB | b. 1874ish | Rep: 4-6 | Any House | Suggested PB: Luke Pasqualino

Ever read The Song of Achilles? This is somewhat inspired by that in terms of the dynamic between the two main characters and is a want ad for Aristides love interest. "Patroclus" is a former UCAB whose family fell to the working class due to financial ruin. The scandal would not be so bad as to keep them from being able to attend Hogwarts so their reputation would need to be between a four and six.

Patroclus is of the opinion that Aristide is everything that Patroclus is not: strong, beautiful, etc. Aristide didn't pay much attention to Patroclus's whole family situation and befriended him anyway during their first year and it is a friendship that has been steadily deepening ever since. Patroclus is the first of the two to realize their connection is romantic with Aristide still being a little clueless. So yeah, that's fun for Patroclus.

Patroclus has managed to make it to his sixth year alongside Aristide and is likely to finish with his NEWTs.

Given how close Aristide and his twin @Adrienne Selwyn are and how they were practically inseparable during their first year despite being in different houses, "Patroclus" would be aware of the twins bond, maybe even jealous of it. He likely does not enjoy the fact that he must constantly share Aristides attention. Lady also has ideas for their rivalry as Adrienne is very protective of Aristide and might sense that there is something more than just platonic friendship bubbling between the boys.

I have Luke Pasqualino pictured because he is fancast by tumblr people but I don't care though I highly encourage a POC playby!

"Sarah"
1863-64ish | open house | widowed | rep 7+
Vanessa Hudgens is pictured,
but I really don't care, POC encouraged!

As I mentioned in his Bridgerton survey Jesse had a friends with benefits situation going on for a little while after graduation. He and said ladyfriend went to school together, were likely in the same year or house, easy friends; Jess has his fair share of sisters anyway. She could have been friends with his sister, Connie in school too!

Her backstory is pretty open, any blood and class combo could reasonably work, as long as she was somebody who would befriend him personality-wise. Fair warning he was a bit of an asshole in school, got in fights a lot, etc, but he was better around people who took the time to get to know him, which she obviously did. I'm calling her Sarah here, but her name is totally open.

For whatever reason (drunk? dumb kid things?) Jess and Sarah fall into bed once. It was pretty terrible, but that sparked them to explore it a little further until it was no longer awful. They came up with a friends with benefits situation because why tf not? They used contraception of some kind to avoid any unwanted consequences and it went on for a couple years (he graduated in 1881, so if she's younger, after she graduated), dates flex.

Their arrangement came to an end when she started courting someone of a good station/place in life to properly do so for her and give her a comfortable living. She may have been WC or MC and moved up a class? Maybe she was MC and said gent just fit what she needed in life. On Jesse's side it ended amicably, but she could have totally had feelings for him along the way. He never did, nor did he give any indication because they were such good friends and he didn't want to screw that up. Any who, she moves on (possibly literally to a different country so they haven't run into one another for a long while?) and doesn't resurface until recently!

I'd like her to be widowed and out of or almost out of mourning, moved back to London/Bartonburg to be near family with her 1-2 kiddos (not Jesse's!). She's a good mom and is looking to remarry asap! I'm really just looking for her to cause drama for Jellon, so she could be temporary, but who knows where the musings will take us!

GHOST BEST FRIEND / ROOMMATE / ACCOMPLICE

b.1869ish | AC | Ghost | Hogsmeade
Suggested PB: Justin H. Min

Named 'Williams' in posts at the moment, it can be changed. He and Tycho were friends in life but somehow got much closer after Williams's death in 1885 in the Ministry Explosion. He tends to fluctuate between blaming Tycho for not warning him with his Seer abilities and having fun with telling people the gory details of how he died. He also used to help out with Tycho's psychic show but the ministry aka Ford Greengrass said 'stop that'.

They consider one another 'best friends' and live together in Tychos Hogsmeade residence in Wellingtonshire. They have moments where Tycho turns book pages or reads out loud for Williams so the ghost probably liked to read when alive or else Tycho would not bother with it lol. He is close enough to Tychos age that he both went to school with Ty and was able to recognize Ford as being "one of those Greengrass guys".

I have Justin H. MIn pictured because Umbrella Academy but PB is wide open.
