The characters in this RPG will be a mix of canon and original. Whether to be one or the other is up to you. Canon characters can be chosen from the list provided below. No other canon characters will be accepted. If you would like to request a canon character, please post in the Questions topic. Original characters (OCs) are of your own mind, and can be whoever you'd like them to be. You may have more than one character if your schedule permits it.

* Characters may be any age, as long as it is school-aged * If you choose to have an older character, a brief history of their time at Hogwarts will be required. Also, this means you will be able to choose the house you belong to. Any first years will be sorted according to their character sheet.

Staff: Minerva McGonagall, Professor Flitwick, Argus Filch, Hagrid, Professor Sprout, Professor Snape

First Name: Draco

Last Name: Malfoy

Heritage: Pureblood, of course.

Nationality: English

Place of Birth: Wiltshire, Southern England, at the family Manor

Age/Date of Birth: Seventeen, June 5th

Appearance :

Eyes: Shockingly light grey, cold and harsh

Hair: Sleek, straight white-blond hair, worn loose and to his shoulders, with a side-swept fringe that is forever in his eyes

Height: Six foot, two

General Appearance: Draco has very aristocratic features, that are often viewed as being rather pointed. He has very fine bone structure. He's very pale in comparison to the other boys that spend hours out in the sun on weekends. Draco has a lanky build, that many mistake for as being weak, though he is rather solid from his training as a seeker.

Dressing Style: Draco prefers to dress in the traditional wizarding style, as is required of him when he is at home. On weekends, though, when he is out of cloak and uniform, Draco often wears expensive muggle clothing. Most of his muggle wardrobe is black and perfectly tailoured to suit him.

Personality :

General Character Traits: Draco is a bigot and a bully, two things that he was practically raised to be. He knows, through keen observation, exactly what makes people tick. Because of this, he often picks on people for their insecurites. He is cold and snarky, so doesn't often make friends, or keep the ones that he has. Draco is a leader, and likes to be above everyone else. He is a very determined character, which could be a result of the high expectations his father has always had for him. Draco exhibits all Slytherin qualities, as well as being devious, underhanded, and surprisingly intelligent. Early on, Draco learned to be a skilled Occlumens from his Aunt Bellatrix. Occlumency was so easy for Draco to learn because he can set aside his emotions and his life.

Likes/Dislikes: Draco enjoys spending time with the friends he's made in Slytherin, both in school and at their grand homes. Draco also likes going to his family's holiday house in the Provence region of France. Quidditch is another favourite of Draco's, and he's always up for flying. Secretly, Draco likes to indulge in filthy romance novels, something he'd never admit to anyone.

Draco doesn't like his father, his huge empty wing of the manor, frogs, or Gryffindors. Oh, and of course, he absolutely hates Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger.

Strengths/Weaknesses: Draco is very good at concealing his emotions, something that he only acquired after much practise. He is also very good at ignoring his emotions, for the most part.

Draco is easy to regret and feel guilt, and though he hides these things, they still eat away at him.


Parents/Siblings: Lucius Malfoy and Narcissa Black Malfoy

Brief History of School Experience: (I'm going to forego this part, as everyone knows what Draco Malfoy's School Experience is. Other participants who wish to have canon characters, may also forego this part if they wish.)


Strong Area of Magic: Occlumency (though that's not a class), Potions

Weak Area of Magic: Charms and History of Magic (Honestly, who can stay awake in that class enough to do well?)

Wand: Hawthorn and unicorn hair, 10 inches, reasonably springy

Quidditch Position (optional): Seeker for the Slytherin House team

8/2/2008 #4

Format for Character Sheet

First Name: Hermione Jean

Last Name: Granger

Heritage: Muggleborn, and proud of the fact

Nationality: English

Place of Birth: London

Age/Date of Birth: Seventeen, 19th September

Appearance :

Eyes: Wide, deep, brown and expressive, with short dark lashes

Hair: Uncontrollably bushy, deep brown colour. Takes a huge amount of potion to calm it, so much so that she thinks it isn't worth bothering with. Sometimes, Hermione wears it tied back to work on her homework and during potions.

Height: Around five foot five

General Appearance: Hermione's face is made up of generally mismatched, striking features, large eyes and lips with rather large teeth, greatly improved thanks to dentistry. Her nose is straight with a small smattering of easily-missed freckles. She has a soft figure with light curves, which she often misconceives has fat. Her figure is something she does not often worry about, though she has moments of seeing beautiful people like Ginny and Lavender and the mirror becomes a barely favourable object.

Dressing Style: She tends to stickto wizarding dress, it makes her feel more like a part of the society she helped to save multiple times. However, when she's on her own, or outside of Hogwarts, smarter clothes and darker colours.

Personality :

General Character Traits: Hermione is generally quiet and studious, with a fiery temper which is kept under control around everyone except a certain red headed best friend of hers. She tends to let her ambitions and emotions take over, which can sometimes be her greatest downfall. Underneath everything, Hermione is a sweet and kind girl.

Likes/Dislikes: Hermione enjoys reading everything and anything. People might take the mickey out of her for it, but she loves to learn and absorb knowledge. She also enjoys spending time with her friends, the people who understand her. Hermione also enjoys spending time in the kitchens, listening to the simple sounds of House Elves whilst reading and eating freshly baked chocolate muffin. Also when in the kitchens, Hermione likes to try to push the house elves towards freedom. The main thing Hermione hates is prejudice and discrimination, of any sort. She has spent her whole life so far fighting for every single person, and creature, to be happy.

Strengths/Weaknesses: Hermione's strengths lie in fact and applying knowledge. She trusts what she knows and what muggle science has proved.


Parents/Siblings:Two muggle dentists, Susanne and Edward.

Brief History of School Experience: (Do you mind if we forego this section. I think we all know about Hermione's school experiences.)


Strong Area of Magic: Most areas of magic are strong for Hermione, charms in particular is her favourite

Weak Area of Magic: Her only weak spot is Divination, as she firmly believes the future is not for us to see. She would never let anyone know that her true reason for disliking the subjects lies in her fear of the future, that she does not fulfill her amibitions or that her or her friends are not happy.

Wand: Vine wood with dragon heartstring core, nine inches, very supple.

Quidditch Position: Hermione can not fathom the obsessive interest in Quidditch displayed by her friends and peers, although she is keen to watch when they are playing, if that is what makes them happy.

Fantastic application! (: You can begin posting whenever you'd like.

And yes, any canon characters can forego the school experience part if they choose to. I'll have to make a note of that.

8/3/2008 #6

I always thought Hermione's middle name was Jane and Umbridge's was Jean. But I get these things mixed up.

8/3/2008 #7

Okay I'm doing TWO claims so here is the first:

Format for Character Sheet

First Name: Jareth

Last Name: King

Heritage: King of the Goblin - Fey bloodlines, though he masquerades as a Pureblood.

Nationality: Fey/Goblin though he pretends to be British

Place of Birth: Underground

Age/Date of Birth: Jareth is 8,763 years old. He looks like he's 35.

Appearance : Please use your describing skills in this part! If your character has almond shaped eyes, tell us! If their hair is a certain style, describe it!

Eyes: Blue - one eye is normal, while the left's pupil is large making the eye appear larger than it is.

Hair: Blonde. Poofy. Sometimes has streaks. (see avatar)

Height: Unfortunatley...5'11

General Appearance: Very pale and thin - and ahem, certain things are obvious in his clothes.

Dressing Style: Jareth absolutely refuses to wear Wizarding clothes. Instead he wears poet's shirts, leather jackets, vests, leggings that look suspiciously like tights, and tall boots that make him look taller.

Personality : Who is your character? What drives them? What shuts them down?

General Character Traits: Jareth is a snarky, self-centered, man. A romantic...though he won't admit it he also suffers heartbreak from the past. He's the former Goblin King so he has that authoritve air about him - but when his Labyrinth was beaten by Sarah, he lost his claim to the throne.

Likes/Dislikes: Juggling, Singing, Dancing. He dislike idiocy and incompetenance and the phrase 'it's not fair' as well as any form of cake.

Strengths/Weaknesses: He lets his emotions cloud his judgement at times. However he's good at not letting this show.


Parents/Siblings: None that he will ever mention. Ever. Except with the profound use of swears.

Brief History of School Experience: Tutors in magic while living Underground.


Strong Area of Magic: Illusion and Protection

Weak Area of Magic: Divination

Wand: It's actually just a peach bark twig as it's to disguise the fact that he's not a wizard! Don't bring it up...

8/3/2008 #8

Hooray, we have a DADA teacher! (: Thank you so super much! You can begin posting whenever you'd like, though it may take a moment for me to unlock the class.

8/3/2008 #9

yay! xD Hey Draco's taller than Jareth.

8/3/2008 #10

Format for Character Sheet

First Name: Pansy

Last Name: Parkinson

Heritage: Pureblood

Likes/Dislikes: Likes: Draco, Boys, Watching Quidditch, and (shh!) reading muggle novels. Dislikes: Being wrong, Hermione, Michelle, and Cats.

Strengths/Weaknesses: Pansy is very driven and focussed. This is a good thing at times but at the end can lead to disaster as she doesn't notice those other things around her.

8/3/2008 #15

8/3/2008 #16
