    Open In-Character Positions As we open the site, we find ourselves short one member of the staff. There are several In-Character positions that needs filling. If you are interested in any of the positions below, please make sure you fill out the application found HERE. @Lilythe will then send you a PM with a series of interview questions. Once that is completed the staff will deliberate on your application and get back to you. Current Open Positions: St. Mungo's Head Healer Daily Prophet Editor-In-Chief Quibbler Editor-In-Chief While these positions are not considered site staff directly, they will be given certain levels of moderator privileges and are a great stepping stone to a site staff position when we grow and need more staff members! Who May Apply? At this time, we feel it would be unfair to exclude anyone. So currently? Anyone may apply so long as they have an accepted character on the site (meaning you've completed the application process for your character and been approved, done your claims, and been sorted). The first applicant to submit a satisfactory application that is met with unanimous approval from the staff will be selected. Why unanimous? Because at this early on it's important to ensure the staff's cohesion so that we may get off to a great start! Then why the first satisfactory application? Because we also need to have our full staff quickly if we want to ensure activity.

    The Rules Character Enrichment subforums are designed for people to post their trackers, shippers, whatever else they might need to flesh out their characters. The rules are pretty simple. With the exception of the occasional sorting thread for adults, these are not roleplay forums. This allows the Unsorted Member group to post in them so unapped characters can plan things out. But as such we require that no RPs be done in these subforums. That would defeat the purpose of our application process. Failure to adhere to this rule will result in the removal of your subforum and a permanent warning placed on your account. Please only use your own subforum for development. Replying to shippers/etc. is fine, but don't start threads in forums of other members to develop your characters. You may only post in your own subforum for character development (i.e. Don't post in this forum for it either) Pretty simple, right? So if you would like a subforum of your very own, just fill out the following form and reply here. Alias: And then tag either @★Admin or @★Global Moderator and we'll come running!
  3. The Sorting Process Sometimes when making a first year character, we don't have a clear idea which house our character should belong to when we make them. Or maybe there's a plan for exactly what house you want to be in. On WWN we try to be flexible enough to accommodate everyone. Below are the various options for how someone can be sorted. First Years When making a first year you can either tell us exactly what year they are in your application, or allow the sorting hat to do the work for you! If you'd like for our staff to sort you using our sorting hat (we review your application and decide where their personality fits)then all you have to do is post with your character in whatever the current school year's Sorting Ceremony is within the Great Hall and tag @ Maeve Johnson in your post. She'll take care of the rest! Second Years to Seventh Years Unfortunately, this time period requires reservation of a spot on the claim, so you will have to choose your house on your own. However, if you're trying to decide on a house feel free to PM @ ★Lilythe and she'll be willing to help you out based on the personality/availability. Adults Alumni from Hogwarts have the freedom of not requiring a claim reserve. This means that you are free to choose wherever you graduated from as long as it complies with canon (i.e. no Hufflepuff Dark Wizards, etc.). But if you would much rather have staff help in sorting your character based on their personality, we can arrange that! Your application will need to have your alumni house in it for approval though, so you have 2 options. You can PM @ ★Lilythe for a quick PM decision. Or, if you're feeling like you'd rather enjoy having the "sorting experience" you can create a Character Enrichment thread to go through their sorting ceremony and tag @ ★Lilythe in your post. You will need to sign up for a Subforum if you don't already have your own though! This process is longer, but can be very rewarding. As you can see there are many options for how we can sort your character for you. So please pick whatever works best for you!

    Activity Check It's WWN's first activity check! What is an activity Check you might ask? Well it's a check we do to see who is active on the board and who isn't. Those who are inactive will lose their claims and free up spaces for new members. We engage in an activity check every 3 months. March, June, September, and December. But Lilythe, what do I need to do? It's simple! Fill out the code below for every character you have. If your character has posted within the last three months, or is less than 3 months old since approval, it is safe! If it is not, the character will be placed as inactive. How long do I have to wait to reactivate if I fell inactive? To give new members a chance to grab at spots that they may not have had a chance to otherwise, we ask that you wait until the end of the month the activity check was conducted in. For example, if it is June, then you can reactivate as early as July. The Code Alias: Characters you are Keeping: Characters you are Dropping:
  5. Using the Members Store The Member's Store was created to allow our members alternative paths to the careers they wanted without having to go through classes and attend school. Some people don't enjoy writing student characters, and we get that. However, there are a few rules that must be followed when using this store. Purchasing OWLs An OWL is always available for purchase on a character, but you must purchase it with the character you want it on. Funds may be donated to accounts, so you can send Galleons over from an account with more Galleons to the desired account if you so choose. Do not purchase the same OWL twice on the same character. There is no purpose to doing so, and it would deprive you of Galleons you may wish to use elsewhere. Purchasing NEWTs You must already have the OWL in the subject you wish to purchase the NEWT for. For example if you want the Charms NEWT, you must first purchase the Charms OWL. If an account is seen with a NEWT and no OWL, without the "Started as a 6th Year" award, we will be forced to refund the Galleons to the account and strip you of the NEWT you purchased. So please follow the rule! Purchasing Specialty Certificates Each certificate has unique rules listed below: Alchemy You must purchase the OWL in Potions first. Animagus You must purchase the OWL in Transfiguration first. Apparation Can be purchased at any time. Wandlore Can be purchased at any time. Patronus Studies You must purchase the OWL in Charms first. If an account is seen with a certificate and no appropriate OWL we will be forced to refund the Galleons to the account and strip you of the certificate you purchased. So please follow the rule!

    About This Class Class Setting Days of the Week: Last Week of School Time of Day: Varies Instructor: Maeve Johnson Why is this open on the first day of school if it takes place on the last week? Because we expect your OWL responses to have some substance and show an understanding of the subject, we allow you to work on them all year long. So we open them on September 1st when the school opens, and close them on the last day of classes. That way you have the most time to create the perfect response for the grade you want. Class Structure You will sign up for your desired exams below. Professor Johnson will then start a thread for you, and give you the prompts for each subject you've chosen. You have from the day your prompt is given, until the last day of the term to complete your responses. Each subject must have its own post, labelled at the top which subject it is for. A well-written response will read like a short-story answer to the prompt and address the appropriate way to handle the task according to your character's studies. Prof. Harkiss is working on a set of study books for the Library to pull universal material from. Until those are complete you may use whatever resources you find online, though we strongly recommend you try the Harry Potter Wiki first as that is where Prof. Johnson will go to fact-check if you don't cite a source for her. Responses are to be completed in character, but your grade is not necessarily dependent upon perfection. The better responses will be the ones that displayed knowledge but still were an interesting read. Student List and Current Subject Exams Gryffindors Hufflepuffs Ravenclaws Slytherins Sign-Up Form Copy the Code Below to add subjects. You will be Auto-Graded on the core subjects even if you didn't take them, to see if you can continue in them for 6th and 7th year.

  8. Open Global Moderator Position It is with a heavy heart that we announce that @ NickyNack has stepped down from her position as a Global Moderator. That means that there is now a Global Moderator position that needs filling. If you are interested in the position, please make sure you fill out the application found HERE. @ ★Lilythe will then send you a PM with a series of interview questions. Once that is completed the staff will deliberate on your application and get back to you. Who May Apply? At this time, we feel it would be unfair to exclude anyone. So currently?

  9. Linked Account and Galleons Glitch Hey everyone! We are aware of a problem that involves accounts which use the "Post As" for Linked accounts not awarding Galleons. Unfortunately there is no way for us to resolve this glitch. The only solution is that you must individually log into each account you intend to post on if you want the galleons for them. Any posts created after January 22, 2020 will be subject to the understanding that if you chose not to switch accounts then you willingly forfeited your galleons. Anyone who made posts prior to this cut off that did not receive their galleons may PM @ ★Lilythe and she will award the appropriate amount to your character's accounts as soon as she is able!

  16. Quidditch Rules and Regulations One of the biggest events in the Wizarding World are the games of Quidditch! Witches and wizards of all walks of life enjoy the sport of Quidditch. So it only makes sense that we would cover Quidditch as well. Below you will find the rules for Quidditch here on this site, how the game is scored, and a sample of the game in the following post. Please read through the entirety of the post so that you are familiar with it before you first game! Rules All Quidditch games will begin with the Referee writing a descriptive post of the game and asking a question. Chasers for both teams will then write a descriptive post with an attempt to catch the Quaffle and the answer to the question. The referee will determine if their attempt was successful with their reply. If they were successful, they become the offensive team and their offense can attempt to answer questions to score. The other team, defensive, will have its Beaters attempting to interrupt their combo. Keepers can answer on the 5th question as a defensive team member, or questions 1 through 4 as an offensive member. 5 consecutive correct answers from the offensive team will result in a goal for the offensive team. Meanwhile, in their PMs the Seekers will be responding to a battery of 25 questions. The first Seeker to reply with all 25 answers correct will catch the Snitch. If neither Seeker gets all 25 questions correct, the Seeker who answered the most correctly will catch it. If there is a tie, an additional set of 10 tiebreaker questions will be sent out. This will continue until the tie is broken. All descriptive sections, except for Seekers must be at least 75 words to count. Otherwise the referee will assign an appropriate foul. Chasers may only post while their team is on offense or else an appropriate foul will be given. Beaters may only post while their team is on defense or else an appropriate foul will be given. Keepers may post as offense or as the 5th defense question, anything else will result in a foul. Seekers must wait for the referee to tell them that they have caught the Snitch before they can post in the game. A Seeker's descriptive post must be at least 150 words long for catching the Snitch. The referee, and only the referee, confirms whether you succeed or not. Claiming you succeed in your post will result in the referee calling a foul on you. To ensure that your posts are long enough there is a word counter located here. All scoring or advancing for a post is voided if you commit a foul. So be certain you're following the rules, because the referee will check before they write theirs. If you commit a foul, it basically is as if the post didn't exist because you are neither closer to scoring, nor can you score. The MVP will earn 500 Galleons! So it's worth it to be extra descriptive! Scoring Game Scores After 5 correct offensive posts by Chasers or Keepers -- 10 points Successful Snitch Catch -- 150 points MVP Scoring Description Quantity Fouls Commited (these impact your score negatively) Private team votes Game points earned Offensive Fouls In the event of a foul being committed the Referee will God-Mod your character committing the action. As a player and writer, you must accept that this occurred and continue to write as if it had. Any players found to be unable to follow this rule during the course of the game will be asked to sit out the next game and replaced with one of the alternates. Should you believe that the Referee made a call unfairly, please PM Lilythe after the game is over and she will review it. In the event that you are correct and the call was made unfairly, there will be compensation but the game will not be overturned. Offensive Fouls Blatching Description: When a player intentionally rides their broom into another player. Actual Mechanics: When a Chaser posts during their team's Defensive phase (i.e. when the other team has the Quaffle). Consequence: That post will not count towards their team retrieving the ball, and the Chaser will have to sit out for the first question of their team's offensive run. Haversacking Description: When a Chaser (or Keeper) is still holding onto the Quaffle as it goes through the hoop. Actual Mechanics: If a Chaser or Keeper states that they made the goal during their post, rather than leaving it open for the Referee to determine in case their answer was wrong. Consequence: That question won't count towards the offensive chain and the referee will issue a new question altogether. After the 3rd Haversacking foul committed by the same player in a game, there is an additional consequence of the team Quaffle being moved to the other team and the Offensive streak ending for that team, as well as that player being removed from the game and replaced by an alternate. Defensive Fouls Bumphing Description: When a beater (or Keeper) hits a bludger into the stands. Actual Mechanics: When a beater posts during the offensive play for their team, or a Keeper posts on anything defensive that isn't the 5th defense for their team. Consequence: That question won't count towards the defensive chain and the referee will issue a new question altogether. After the 3rd Bumphing committed by the same player in a game that player will be removed and replaced with an alternate. Both Sides Fouls Blagging Description: Grabbing another player's broomstick tail. Actual Mechanics: Anyone posting less than required word count while attempting to answer the question or catch the Snitch. Consequence: That post, its answer, and all content within it, won't count. Which means if you would have scored, you don't. If you would have caught the Snitch, you don't. For Chasers, Keepers, and Beaters, this means that another member of your team will have to answer the question. For Seekers, this is especially bad, as it means that the Referee will enter "tie breaker" mode and you will have to answer "tie breaker" questions via PM. Snitchnip Description: When any player but the Seeker catches the Snitch. Actual Mechanics: If any player other than the Seeker claims to have caught the Snitch in their post. Consequence: Immediate removal from the game and replaced by an alternate.

    About The Quibbler The Quibbler is an in-character tabloid. It is written in character about real (or imagined) events happening on the site. These events can be as commonplace as playing your guitar at the Leaky Cauldron to the results of a Quidditch match to events from the site plot to just about anything! And getting your name on the paper will earn you an award if you claim it! The Quibbler often catches a lot of negative reviews for some of its bizarre stories. But when the events in the world become equally bizarre, and the Daily Prophet refuses to report the news, will this tabloid turn into a real news source? Find out! How Often Does the Paper Publish? In our early days, we will simply publish single articles as events happen. Once we feel we have enough members, and a full staff, to create an actual paper, that will be published once a month (to give writers time to find quality content, write a full article, and design the page to publish).

These events can be as commonplace as playing your guitar at the Leaky Cauldron to the results of a Quidditch match to events from the site plot to just about anything! And getting your name on the paper will earn you an award if you claim it! The Daily Prophet is, allegedly, a reputable newspaper. But will that remain true with certain staff members on its staff? Stay tuned to find out! How Often Does the Paper Publish? In our early days, we will simply publish single articles as events happen. Once we feel we have enough members, and a full staff, to create an actual paper, that will be published once a month (to give writers time to find quality content, write a full article, and design the page to publish).

Because we also need to have our full staff quickly if we want to ensure activity.
  20. Canon List and Rules These characters are integral to the site plot. As such they belong to the site, but we cannot play them all by ourselves so we offer them up to you! As a player you will be able to take on an active role and help shape the events that form the site's history and lore. Everything that happens in the plot and with these canon characters will impact the site as a whole! Playing one lets you leave your mark on the site indefinitely! Look at the list below to find the current characters, availability, and application form. Rules for applying You may not play more than one person from the same family You agree that the character is property of the site, and must relinquish it should you leave Writers must post with canon characters at least 5 times per month, per character No more than two canon characters per writer You may not change the face claim* *If you are the first writer for the character (i.e. they have no posts outside the application) then you may request a change from Lilythe, however they must look like they could still be related and be available on the face claim wall. Once they have an in-character post, they cannot be changed. To apply, please copy the application below and reply to this thread. The process is much like applying with an Original Character, only instead of filling out a profile, you'll answer the questions Lilythe PMs you. Once that's done staff will review your application and you will be given either a pending or acceptance. You have 2 pending chances before you will be denied for the canon altogether. Filling out the application will place your desired canon on reserve for you for 2 weeks. Application Please copy the format below and reply to this post. Lilythe will send you a PM with the application for the character you wish to play. Alias: HERE Desired Canon: NAME Link to Canon Record: HERE Do you have any other canons? No/Yes (who?) Canons Avery Family Gideon Open Face Claim: Rufus Sewell Age: 52 Relationship Status: Married to Alcestis Avery Job: Philanthropist Siblings: None Children: Edmond Avery, Cordelia Avery, Amalia Avery, and Jasper Avery Gideon is extremely charming and charismatic. He knows this, and certainly has no qualms about using it to his advantage. He loves putting on airs, and can often be seen in front of large crowds. His secret hatred for muggles and muggle-borns is well hidden from the rest of society. Not so hidden is his rabid devotion to the Slytherin house. He is incredibly proud that his children have been sorted there, and can often be seem wearing "Slytherin Alumni" or "Slytherin Dad" memorabilia. He loves his family and would do anything for them, though at the same time he despises children that are not his own. Stupid, sniveling brats the lot of them. On the surface he is a kind, charming benefactor who has reformed his formerly-evil family for the better, but that could not be further from the truth. As those who ally themselves with him soon find out, the Dark Lord's teachings are alive and thriving within his group. Alcestis Open Face Claim: Catherine Zeta Jones Age: 48 Relationship Status: Married to Gideon Avery Job: Housewife Siblings: None Children: Edmond Avery, Cordelia Avery, Amalia Avery, and Jasper Avery To others, Alcestis makes sure to appear as a meek and dedicated housewife. She's the type to bring home-baked cookies to meetings and spend her time with local mom's groups. Sweet and kind, protective of her children, and always willing to lend a helping hand. Any friends her kids bring home think she's just the most adorable lady, if perhaps a bit strict when it comes to keeping the house clean. Her children, of course, know otherwise. Alcestis is strict and cold with her family, demanding the absolute perfect image from them. Their clothes, their attitude, and their actions all have a part to play in the grand charade. In reality, Alcestis is as arrogant as she has ever been. He husband's talk of Pureblood superiority - and their family's superiority - only serves to feed this mindset. She does love her husband and family, considering them to be among the elite few at her own level. She is by no means a good person, but she is still an extremely brilliant person. She puts a lot of effort into organizing and hiding the Averys' underground dealings, and into making sure that nobody realizes where half of the brains of the operation is coming from. Edmond Open Face Claim: Ed Westwick Age: 27 Relationship Status: Single Job: Ministry Official, International Magical Office of Law Parents: Gideon Avery and Alcestis Avery Siblings: Cordelia Avery, Amalia Avery, and Jasper Avery Edmond is manipulative, crafty, and downright cruel at times. He holds few loyalties and many suspicions. He does still get along quite well with his sister Cordelia and his parents (despite his distrust of them), but his younger siblings he ignores almost entirely. He only plays the perfect "big brother" when he has to. Eddie goes through relationships like Kleenex, using and discarding whoever he sees fit for personal gain or simple pleasure. He is good at acting "good" though, and very few of these women are ever aware that they have been used. There is always some very legitimate excuse for things to end, none of which is really his fault in their eyes. He is quite passionate about the Dark Arts and quite adept in their practice. Ed insists on being a major part of the plans that are brewing. He knows that a win for the Avery family (at least in its current state) is a win for himself, and often goes along with his parents' plans to achieve his own ends. However, if the time comes where working with them is no longer in his best interest, he is willing and prepared to disengage himself from their web. Cordelia Open Face Claim: Nina Dobrev Age: 24 Relationship Status: Single Job: Unemployed Parents: Gideon Avery and Alcestis Avery Siblings: Edmond Avery, Amalia Avery, and Jasper Avery The black sheep of the Avery family, Cordelia's the one child who doesn't seek to pretend like she's any sort of nice. More than happy to pick a fight, Cordelia will gladly say whatever she feels like. Despite her strong dislike for her siblings, she's very loyal to her parents and brother. While she isn't willing to put on a face and pretend like they are, she will defend them to death if necessary. Amalia Open Face Claim: Victoria Justice Age: 20 Relationship Status: Single Job: Unemployed Parents: Gideon Avery and Alcestis Avery Siblings: Edmond Avery, Cordelia Avery, and Jasper Avery Amalia mirrors her mother's sweetness. She is extremely loyal to her family and their interests, but appears to be an overall a generous person beyond that of her family when in public. She feels sometimes that her family is too harsh on the mudbloods - after all, it's not their fault that they were born inferior - and looks on them with less hatred and more pity than her family has taught her to. She believes they may have some uses, like cattle. She does feel sometimes that she is useless with her lack of talent in the Dark Arts, and works incredibly hard on her singing and performance (as it is something she feels she is talented in). She is also a bit naive and easily-manipulated, which makes her at the same time a great and a frustrating pawn. Jasper Open Face Claim: Luke Pasqualino Age: 16 Relationship Status: Single Job: Ravenclaw Student Parents: Gideon Avery and Alcestis Avery Siblings: Edmond Avery, Cordelia Avery, and Amalia Avery Jasper is a hardworking student, desperate to please his incredibly demanding family. He finds little time for real friendships or relationships, though he does find catharsis in the occasional group outing. Because of this he sometimes comes off as cold and distant, though his "mysertious aura" has made him kind of popular with the girls in his year. He dedicates the majority of his time to studying and practicing the Dark Arts, and as such tends to fall behind in his regular classes or sometimes miss them altogether. Jasper is a big fan of structure. He likes rules, and can only really focus when everything is in it's proper place. He wanted to be a Prefect so that he could enforce the rules at Hogwarts, but his low grades prevented him from even being considered for the position. Instead, he finds himself quite frequently in the position of "tattletale" (he prefers the term "informant" though). Jaz is very dedicated to the Avery family and will go out of his way to prove himself to them every chance he gets. Burke Family Erasmus Open Face Claim: Eric Rutherford Age: 47 Relationship Status: Married to Veronica Burke Job: Owner of Borgin and Burkes Siblings: Malachi Burke Children: Damian Burke, Edgar Burke, and Donovan Burke Leader of the Burke family. He owns Borgin and Burkes as a front for the family's more illicit operations as fences for darker merchandise. He is loyal to his family first and foremost, but will also show loyalty to those who show it to him. He is a master manipulator and not someone to be messed with. Erasmus has always been a master manipulator. He has a gift for coercion and often uses it to bend people's wills to match his own. Second, Erasmus is loyal to his family and his family alone. Third, he is a very stubborn person, and he is not the type to give in easily. Basically, what it boils down to is that he is the perfect head for his family. Exceptionally cunning and clever, Erasmus knows how to get what he wants from most situations and will ensure that happens, no matter the cost to others. While he will not personally get his hands dirty, he has plenty of people willing to work for him and do so. He looks out for those who remain loyal to the best of his abilities. Though if the choice is between them or his family, the family will always be his priority. Veronica Open Face Claim: Cate Blanchett Age: 45 Relationship Status: Married to Erasmus Burke Job: Housewife Children: Damian Burke, Edgar Burke, and Donovan Burke Veronica is clever and charming. She can often adapt her personality to suit the situation and currently benefits from letting people believe that she has lost her edge. As a result, people constantly underestimate her and her capabilities, which is just how she like it. Ever the doting mother, Veronica does spoil all three of her sons rotten. She can't imagine a world where they aren't her number one priority. This included giving them private instruction in their homes over the summer so that her sons would never lack in skills. Veronica will always put her family and husband first, and she isn't afraid to enter the fray if needed to. She is a fierce mama bear and has the talent to back that up. Malachi Coming Soon Face Claim: Greg Vaughan Age: 42 Relationship Status: Single Job: Cursebreaker Siblings: Erasmus Burke Short bio here Damian Coming Soon Face Claim: Jensen Ackles Age: 27 Relationship Status: Single Job: Borgin and Burkes Employee Parents: Erasmus Burke and Veronica Burke Siblings: Edgar Burke and Donovan Burke Short bio here Edgar Coming Soon Face Claim: Freddie Prinze Jr. Age: 25 Relationship Status: Single Job: Unspeakable Department of Mysteries Parents: Erasmus Burke and Veronica Burke Siblings: Damian Burke and Donovan Burke Short bio here Donovan Coming Soon Face Claim: NAME Age: AGE Relationship Status: STATUS Job: Ministry Official, Department of International Magical Cooperation Parents: Erasmus Burke and Veronica Burke Siblings: Damian Burke and Edgar Burke Short bio here Rosier Family Dorea Played by Lilythe Face Claim: Katie McGrath Age: 33 Relationship Status: Single, Widowed, and still both loves and hates Tobias Fawley Job: --- Parents: Daniella Rosier and Felix Rosier II Siblings: Tabitha Rosier-Nott and Xavier Rosier Children: Orion Rosier and Adelaide Rosier Dorea is a hard one to earn the trust of to truly be considered someone of importance to her. She is charismatic and would have the world believe she has a million friends, and have most of them fooled into believing that's true. But the reality is she doesn't let many people close to her. She can come across as icy to those who work for her, as she has no desire to get close to people that may die on her. She only expects loyalty from them. The more loyal someone is, the higher up the ranks they move. As for her sister? Well, that's a very different dynamic. She loves her, but she doesn't trust her. Dorea has someone test her food and drink in front of her before every meal--much like the kings of old--knowing that at any time her sister might be trying to poison her. Really, who can you trust in these dark times? Daniella Open Face Claim: Meryl Streep Age: 68 Relationship Status: Widowed Job: Journalist Children: Dorea Rosier, Tabitha Rosier-Nott, and Xavier Rosier Daniella is about as devious as they come. She uses her position with the newspaper as a source of information. That information is then provided to the family to ensure they know everything that is going on in the wizarding world and can stay one step ahead. Daniella would happily commit murder for anyone in her family. Even though she and Tabitha no longer see eye to eye, Daniella will still have her back against anyone outside the family. She is cold and calculating. Nothing she does lacks purpose. In fact, the only people she is kind to at all are her family. She is the biggest fan of her grandchildren. She spoils them beyond measure, especially her grandson whom she claims looks just like his grandfather. Though even with her strong sense of family, she has struggled to give up the reigns of the family to her daughter Dorea. Daniella's need for control has her often butting into the family business where she is unwanted. Tabitha Open Face Claim: Eva Green Age: 37 Relationship Status: Single, Widowed Job: Apothecary Owner, Potioneer Parents: Deniella Rosier and Felix Rosier II Siblings: Dorea Rosier and Xavier Rosier Children: Evangeline Nott Tabitha is fairly easy to like because she reads the room expertly. She knows what kind of person you like to talk to best before you’re even talking to her, and she shapes herself to become that person and is quite capable of masking her own personality to suit your needs. Just as it’s easy for Tabitha to befriend others, it’s also easy for her to ensnare their hearts. She flirts easily if she realizes flirtation is needed or wanted. Since her late husband, however, she’s never again been in a romantic relationship. For the most part now, she only gets into romantic situations because it helps her get what she wants and leaves them when she's done. She has little to no faith that she could find love again; and even if she did, would he be safe? Tabitha has been taught to hide her true emotions, as well as to be able to draw on whatever emotion when she wants to. So if she’s angry with you, it’s possible that she’s truly angry and possibly that she’s just manipulating you into behaving the way she wants. Although she acts as one of the family’s main recruiters and sources of information, she is careful with members other members of the Rosier family and their business partners. Although the family works towards one goal, each member seems to have their own drives, Tabitha herself in particular. She is highly distrusting of each person connected to the family, knowing that they likely do report back to her sister or mother first and foremost. Xavier Open Face Claim: Ian Somerhalder Age: 31 Relationship Status: Single Job: Cursebreaker Parents: Daniella Rosier and Felix Rosier II Siblings: Dorea Rosier and Tabitha Rosier-Nott Not one for a lot of responsibility, Xavier has always been the party sibling. While he is perfectly capable of pulling himself together when his siblings ask it of him, he spends his free time seeking out fun in every way he can. He believes in enjoying life, and experiencing everything he can. While he's definitely more on the morally grey side, willing to engage in torment and the like when necessary, he is probably the most genuinely friendly of the Rosier siblings. He doesn't take sides in the power struggle between his siblings, as that reduces the fun in his life. Instead he tries to please them both as best he's able. Dorea is probably his closest sibling, but Tabitha was the only one who could relate to the feeling of always being in Dorea's shadow. At work, he presents as a dedicated employee, which has kept him out of suspicion when things go missing. But Xavier is far more responsible for missing items than his bosses believe. His devious nature, and deceptive abilities manage to keep him from being detected. Orion Coming Soon Face Claim: Chace Crawford Age: 15 Relationship Status: Single Job: Slytherin Student Parents: Dorea Rosier and Antony Carrow Siblings: Adelaide Rosier Short bio here Adelaide Coming Soon Face Claim: Emily Rudd Age: 14 Relationship Status: Single Job: Slytherin Student Parents: Dorea Rosier and Antony Carrow Siblings: Orion Rosier Short bio here Evangeline Coming Soon Face Claim: Darla Baker Age: 18 Relationship Status: Single Job: Daily Prophet Reporter Parents: Tabitha Rosier-Nott and Aedan Nott Short bio here Other Canons Amira Coming Soon Face Claim: Ashleigh Murray Age: 28 Relationship Status: Single Job: Auror Parents: Darius Shacklebolt and Amal Thomas-Shacklebolt Siblings: Kingsley Shacklebolt II Short bio here Kingsley Open Face Claim: Sinqua Walls Age: 30 Relationship Status: Single Job: Investigator Parents: Darius Shacklebolt and Amal Thomas-Shacklebolt Siblings: Amira Shacklebolt The great-grandson of Kinsley Shacklebolt, former Minister of Magic, has always aspired to be just like his great grandfather. Unfortunately for him, however, he didn't have what it took to be an Auror. Instead, his sister got that honor. Though he is proud of her, he is quite envious and it has put a strain on their previously strong relationship. Kingsley still aspires to follow in his great-grandfather's footsteps however, and eyes a position as Minister for Magic someday. Navin Coming Soon Face Claim: Toni Mahfud Age: 25 Relationship Status: Single Job: Auror Parents: Abdul Shafiq and Priya Patil-Shafiq Siblings: Amir Shafiq and Aida Shafiq Short bio here Amir Coming Soon Face Claim: Jade Hassoune Age: 24 Relationship Status: Single Job: Investigator Parents: Abdul Shafiq and Priya Patil-Shafiq Siblings: Nevin Shafiq and Aida Shafiq Short bio here Aida Coming Soon Face Claim: Necar Zadegan Age: 24 Relationship Status: Single Job: Hit Witch Parents: Abdul Shafiq and Priya Patil-Shafiq Siblings: Nevin Shafiq and Amir Shafiq Short bio here Li Coming Soon Face Claim: Seo In-Guk Age: 22 Relationship Status: Single Job: Investigator Parents: Xue Chang and Mai Chang Siblings: Jiao Chang Short bio here Jiao Coming Soon Face Claim: Song Da-Hye Age: 23 Relationship Status: Single Job: Hit Witch Parents: Xue Chang and Mai Chang Siblings: Li Chang Short bio here Michael Coming Soon Face Claim: Ansel Elgort Age: 24 Relationship Status: Single Job: Hit Wizard Parents: John Abbott and Sarah Finnegan-Abbott Short bio here Tobias Open Face Claim: Stephen James Age: 37 Relationship Status: It's Complicated with Dorea Rosier Job: Auror Tobias is cocky, a little vain, and very stubborn. He is highly intelligent and likes to see things done his way. While at work he is very professional, yet those who know him will find him to be rather morally grey. A bit domineering at times, he found a true match in Dorea, who enjoyed challenging him at every opportunity. It's a love-hate relationship between those two. While they both have feelings for one another, they also both resent the actions each has done. He cannot find it in himself to be okay with murder--even when it meant saving his life. Dorea cannot let go of her hubris enough to believe that she could have been found out by the Ministry through any means but her lover's betrayal. As a result, the two have far too much unfinished business to truly be rid of one another.
