    Alexander meandered down Diagon Alley, his steps rather full of life for an 87-year-old man. He smiled at the schoolchildren hurrying past. Winter break, eh? He himself remembered the joy of leaving Hogwarts on break, shopping for the holidays with his family. He had always imagined that he'd walk this street with his own children one day, but... life had taken the man in an entirely different direction. Alexander Wright's responsibilities were far greater than he had ever thought of in his naive dreams of fatherhood. In a way he saw himself as a kind of figure to each of these children. Adults too. As Minister for Magic he was charged with protecting and caring for the entire Wizarding population of the UK, a charge which he took very seriously. But it was also one he needed to get away from occasionally. Hence why he was doing his own errands. "Errands" was a rather loose term, as he didn't actually have any particular thing he needed. Some Christmas gifts for the office, perhaps? Or maybe a nice new quill to treat himself after months of grueling work. Convincing bureaucrats to do anything was like hearding teeth? Or was it pulling cats? Muggle idioms had never made much sense to him, but he found them extremely amusing.Amusing idioms had been of little use to him over the past few months, however. Something had been stirring, he could feel it. (And no, he wasn't "just being paranoid again" thank you very much) but getting the Ministry to mobilize on anything what a difficult task even for its Minister. With all of that to deal with at work, it was nice to take a break once in a while. As he browsed, he came across a woman with sharp features and dark hair. A fellow window-shopper by the looks of her. The minister smiled and approached, peering through the window to see what she was looking at. "Morning ma'am!" The old man said brightly. "Out for a bit of shopping today? Quite a crazy time, wouldn't you say?"

    Alexander Wright The minister's office was a musty sort of place. Not the disquieting must that brings to mind abandoned warehouses and unread tomes. Rather, it is the kind of musty that comes with a well-used but not so well-kept library. The books strewn about the place only added to this impression. Many were marked up and dog eared, with interesting passages jumping out with neon highlights. The place gave off a quiet sense of chaos. Along with the books, documents and knickknacks cover the furniture save for two chairs. The true nightmare for any janitor though was the fact that these things had no other place to go. The bookshelves and desks were stuffed to the brim, and every item in the room was no doubt important. In the center was a large brown desk, oddly organized compared to everything around it. It sports a simple desk lamp, a quill, and a stationary set. The man behind the desk didn't seem to mind the mess. Alexander Wright, Minister for Magic, had a thousand things to deal with at once. And none of them involved cleaning. His foot tapped rhythmically under the desk as he composed a letter, a half-cocked smile adorning his face. It was Office Hours for him, the time of day when citizens and coworkers could come to him with any questions of concerns they may have. Sometimes an issue would come up and he would have tens of people crowding in to try and talk to him. But most days it was rather dull. The other Ministry Officials knew that Alex was always busy, and tended to only come to him as a last resort. As for the public... things had been oddly quiet lately. It wasn't that the people felt they could not talk to their Minister. More so it seemed there was nothing to talk about. Things had been rather peaceful in the Wizarding World. A good thing, of course, but it did leave Mr. Wright with less company to attend to. Finishing his letter, he wrapped it up and sealed it neatly. One down, twenty to go. He thought a bit miserably. Even in dead times, bureaucracy kept him busy. His blue eyes would occasionally dart toward the door. It would be nice to go out on a walk right now, perhaps pick up a muffin and clear his head. That wasn't an option though. Office hours were office hours, and on the off chance that someone did need to speak with him, he needed to stay in his musty old office. Well, someone could show up today. He hoped they would. Peace and quiet was well and good, but the old man thought he could go for some excitement. Just nothing... too exciting. .fr-credit-link{padding:10px 0;font-size:11px;font-style:italic;} .freetable-e05 p{padding:0px 20px 10px 20px;margin:0px;text-indent:30px;} .freetable-e05 b{color:#C6DAED;} .freetable-e05-b{width:602px;border:1px solid #000000;margin:0px auto;border-radius:6px;-webkit-border-radius:6px;-moz-border-radius:6px;} .freetable-e05-name{font-family:georgia, serif;color:#D3E2F1;text-shadow:#09121A 0px 0px 5px;margin:5px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:16px;font-weight:bold;letter-spacing:1px;text-align:center;padding:0px 25px;} .freetable-e05-ooc{font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;letter-spacing:.4px;font-style:italic;} .freetable-e05{background-color:#465B6E;border:1px solid #C6DAED;font-family:georgia, serif;font-size:12px;color:#141B21;letter-spacing:.3px;word-spacing:2px;line-height:14px;width:600px;text-align:justify;padding:3px 0px;border-radius:6px;-webkit-border-radius:6px;-moz-border-radius:6px;}

    Alexander Wright Basics Full Name: Alexander Gideon Wright Age (D.o.B.): 87 (7/07/1982) Nicknames: Alex, “Wide-Eyes” Gender: Male Sexuality: Heterosexual Blood Status: Half-Blood Position: Former Hufflepuff, Minister for Magic Wand: 9” Vine Wood, Thestral Tail Hair Place of Birth: Oxford England Current Location: London, England Education: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Class of 2000 Languages: English, French, Rune Other: N/A Preferences Likes: Chocolate, long Walks, Rambling Conversations, Bad (and Good) Puns, Excessively Complicated Coffee Drinks, Logic Puzzles, Muggle Technology, Surprises (But Only the Pleasant Ones), Good Books, Storytelling, Jazz Music, Musical Theatre, Learning New Things, Eccentric People, CHildren, People Who Laugh at HIs Jokes Dislikes: Bitter Foods, The Sound of Bagpipes, People Who Don’t Smile, Bullies, Spiders, Rap Music, Flying, Sports, Conflict, Biographies, Greasy Hair, Underhanded Dealings, People Who are Rude to Children, Crossword Puzzles, Creatures with Pointy Teeth Relationships Relationship Status: Widowed Significant Other: Nelly Wright (DECEASED) Nelly was a strong, quiet sort of woman. She was not ugly, though few would describe her as beautiful. Her form was lanky and awkward, her nose too big and her ears too small. Yet her skin was a beautiful golden brown, and behind her bespectacled eyes glistened with a constant bemusement at the world around her. To Alex she was the perfect woman. Her wit was every bit as sharp as her features, and though her tongue could be cruel it was also hilarious. From the moment they met, their conversations had been torrents of jabs and jokes. Nelly was not the type to joke around. Alex certainly was though, and he coaxed out a side of her that few but he ever saw. The pair were intelligent and strong both together and apart. In times of conflict, Nelly was his pillar. He keeps up his jovial demeanor these days, but her absence has certainly left a void in his life. When asked about her, he will often jest “She made me the man I am today, and I’ll never forgive her for it!” Past Relationship(s): Sherry Dunham An old flame from his early adulthood, Sherry has been a bit insane in her attempts to “win back” her powerful ex since his wife passed. While he doesn’t regret their prior relationship, he no longer has any interest in her. Family: Father: Devin Wright, 119, Broadcaster for WWN Mother: Aliya Wright, 114, Federal Wand Permit Officer Pets: Freya the Fwooper Writer Information Writer Alias: AdelynnWilde Writer Age: 21 Writer Pronouns: She/Her Timezone: Arizona contact: Discord AdelynnWilde#5772 or PM on Site will not write: Scenes involving rape or sexual assault Before Hogwarts If asked about his time before Hogwarts, Alex will generally laugh and say “Well, it’s all a bit foggy at this point.” He grew up as a resident of the wizarding world with two loving parents. His family was not wealthy, but they made do for themselves well enough. Born shortly after Voldemort’s first defeat, he was raised in a time of hope and trepidation. Most still feared the dark lord, though all rejoiced at his apparent passing. Alexander grew up with stories of “the boy who lived” and of Voldemort’s evil rampage and he was always quite fascinated with them. There was always a sense that the carefree childhood he enjoyed came at a very high price. While not exactly a fanboy of Potter, he did become curious and excited knowing that he would be going to school with the legendary child. Hogwarts Years Alex was not the strongest student in his year, nor the smartest, nor the most talented. But if there was one thing to be said for the boy, it would be that he was an extremely hard worker. He was a bit of a class clown in his earlier years, constantly joking and doing his best to cheer others through the terrifying events that seemed to plague the school each year. The teachers liked him in spite of this. After all, his homework was always thorough and on time. Besides, he preferred wordplay to practical jokes which came as a relief to the same professors who’d been dealing with the Weasley twins during their tenure at Hogwarts. He hadn’t favored any particular house going in (though he did hold the common Slytherin resentment that so many did so soon after Voldemort’s rise and fall) so he was perfectly content to be placed in Hufflepuff. His first few years were excellent. Albus Dumbledore was headmaster. Crazy occurrences surrounding Harry Potter and his friends were certainly a factor, but Alex managed to keep himself and his classmates in good spirits as he focused on his studies. Then… Snape became headmaster. Alex’s hopes of becoming Prefect one day immediately flew out the window. Snape never liked the boy after all - the man never had much of a sense of humor. Alex found himself siding more and more with the rebellious upperclassmen as Muggle Studies and DADA classes began filling with obvious propaganda. He kept up his studies until his fifth year when the Battle of Hogwarts occurred. Alex assisted Ernie and Hannah in protecting and evacuating younger students while the battle was going on. After the battle, he returned to Hogwarts to finish out his final years. He graduated with above-average grades in every subject except for Flying. After Hogwarts After Hogwarts, Alex returned to work with his father at WWN. His calming voice, quick wit and lovable laugh quickly propelled him to the status of radio celebrity. He would eventually take over completely from his father, gaining his own spot on the air and eventually his own show altogether. During this time, Hermione Granger took over as the youngest ever Minister for Magic and began enacting progressive policies that Alex generally agreed with (though was certainly not above poking fun at). His shows ranged from politics to comedy sketches to ongoing dramas, and as he entered his middle years his popularity only grew. The next minister, a woman named Abigail Williams, was not quite as aligned with Alexander’s views as Granger had been. The new official was cautious of too much Muggle interaction, and it was rumored that she was placed in power by some of the more powerful remaining Pureblood families. Her policies therefore supported the cause that so many in Alex’s time at Hogwarts had fought to eliminate, and Alex had no shortage of scathing comedy and sarcasm to throw at her on this show. For a while it seemed the jokester would become bitter and jaded at how society was turning, but meeting his wife Nelly reversed that course. And as she told him when the time for the next election arose “Well, it’s no use bitching about it to me. If you’re not going to do anything you may as well shut up and eat your supper.” He did eat his supper, but he didn’t shut up. Using his celebrity and a peace-wanting platform that many already desired, he ran against Williams in the next Minister election. During this time an “accident” (which he still suspects may not have been quite so accidental) with some of his equipment occurred, killing his wife who had stepped in to bring him a forgotten packed lunch. Alex had not yet walked into his office that day because he’d had a morning meeting, and he is very suspicious of the groups who had at the time been working to keep Williams in power. The trap, as he believes the malfunctioning things to be, was most certainly meant for him. Yet he did not die, and what’s more he managed to will the vote! Alex has been Minister for a few years now, and has proven that his eccentric personality does not make him incompetent. Though he does come off as a bit… paranoid. Character's Personality At heart, Alex is still a class clown. His first instinct when presented with a problem is to make a joke about it. However, behind his smiles and laughter lies a hard working and incredibly observant man. His charisma carries him through most encounters, but when it fails, he does have other means of making things turn out his way. Oftentimes he will pretend that he does not notice something if he feels the information could be useful to him later. His constant look of pleasant surprise has given him the nickname “Wide-Eyes”, and his opponents often use it as a derrogatory term in attempts to call him incompetent. He is very firmly against any blood purity sentiment, having publicly declared it to be “a stinking load of codswallop.” He generally quite busy, and he works very hard to do the best job he can. Though saddened by his wife’s death (and still incredibly suspicious of his political opponents) he does his best to maintain his happy, loud, eccentric persona that made him so famous in the first place.
