Wikia DARP - Arcturus Rookou in the grounds of the Rookery

Arcturus in the grounds of the Rookery

Arcturus (technically Arcturus II) is a Pure-Blood wizard. Cousin of former Hogwarts students Mafalda, Marius and Durea Rookou. Son of a Death Eater and a Pure-Blood Supremacist. Arcturus was taught to hate Muggles, Muggle-Borns and Half-Bloods Arturus is not friends with Half-Blood, Muggle-Borns and Squibs. Arcturus' dad Abraxas disowned a quarter of his family for being Squibs and they did not know what a wizard is, so Arcturus' dad Abraxas Rookou, Arcturus' uncle Sphinx Rookou, Arcturus' aunt Drix Spin and her husband Brutus Spin slaughtered them. Arcturus' father is a close friend of Lucius Malfoy, Abraxas and his wife Fortuna comforted Narcissa Malfoy and employed people to protect Malfoy Manor. Arcturus is a registered Animagus - he can transform into a massive, vicious dog like his father (an Old English Bulldog, 32" at the shoulder), but does not attack people. Arcturus was extremely talented in DADA he has created a number of spells. He lives, like so many generations of Rookous before him, in The Rookery, with his wife Tulula Rookou-Greengrass. Recently, his daughter Caecey has been readmitted to the family fold.

Arcturus perished in late 2014, but was prevented from moving beyond the veil by incantations (designed to trap the soul of his grandfather) employed by 'Tully'. 'Archie' is now between worlds, uncertain and overwhelmed with ectoplasmic hormones - in other words, aside from being dead, an entirely normal sixteen year old. He (has/never/will/have/had - the tenses get complex in his current condition - for a given value of 'current') mastered the necessary magics, but it could reasonably be argued that he is outfitted with a perpetual Patronus of a 750 lb nature - Iz. Iz does not have a zest for life, it is his every cell and utterance, a joy at which Archie can only gaze in abject wonder, and attempt, in brief moments, to warm himself. As Archie once observed to a houseguest, "Iz is down to the same degree that daylight is solid.".

Current activities[]

Alongside his Pure-Blood endeavours, Arcturus has discovered an ever-increasing body of extremely disturbing evidence concerning his parents and grandfather, Arcturus I. Hisgrandsire was Grandmaster of the Secret Serpents, a Pure-Blood Supremacist movement, but one with an atypically tolerant attitude to others.

Family Tree[]

If underlined, that means they were removed from the family by Abraxas Rookou II

Arcturus has a big family tree - here are the names of all of them, starting from Arcturus' Great-Grandad, Abraxas Rookou.

Abraxas Rookou (Arcturus' Great-Grandad) married Dura Bery, and they had 3 children named Arcturus Rookou I, Mafalda Rookou I and Marius Rookou I.

Arcturus Rookou I married Mirava Tulley, and they had 5 children named Abraxas Rookou II, Sphinx Rookou, Drix Rookou, James Rookou and Misrada Rookou.

Abraxas Rookou II married Fortuna Dura, and they had 3 children called Mirava Rookou, Sphinx Rookou II and Arcturus Rookou II.

Abraxas Rookou II's sister, Drix Rookou, married Brutus Spin, but they were childless. Her boundless energies and ruthlessness were channelled into her husband's Ministry career, but her family's constant misdeeds prevented his rise to any post higher than Section Head.

Drix's brother Sphinx died when he was 22. Another brother, James Rookou II, married Sian Styles, and they had 3 children Petunia Rookou, James Rookou II and Forman Rookou II. All male members of this branch perished at the Battle of Hogwarts, fighting on Voldemort's side, as did Petunia, leaving only Sian, for whom Arcturus has never cared, and whose occasional begging letters he uses to bring a warm glow to his study.

James' final brother, Misrada Rookou, married Toula Jayne, and they had 3 children called Mafalda Rookou II, Marius Rookou II, Durea Rookou. MIsrada always wanted to be the one one thing he never could - eldest and heir. Much of his extreme "misbehaviour" might be attributed to this root cause. This branch of the family, having committed numerous atrocities in Voldemort's name, went into exile after his fall, and are currently out of contact with the rest of the Rookous. Adera has recently resurfaced from this line.

Back to Abraxas Rookou I, whose daughter Mafalda Rookou I married Bernard Mire, and they had 3 children called Mooney Mire, Tutan Mire and Forman Mire, who married Petunia Green.

Mafalda Rookou I's brother, Marius Rookou I, married Fortan Myers, and they had 3 children Augustus Myers, Fatima Myers and Nymphadora Myers.

Augustus Myers married Oli Tun, and they had 2 children called Manus Myers and Olivine Myers.

Augustus Myers' sister, Fatima Myers, married Marvolo Dun, and they had 3 children Rytheme Dun, Michael Dun and Forman Dun.

Forman Dun married Myer Sou, and they had 3 children called Tuno Dun, September Dun and May Dun.

Arcturus has certain vague memories of the gorgeous creature he once exerted himself to pursue.

The soundtrack of his life[]

This what Arcturus imagines the world singing to him. One of the few gramophone records he regularly dusts off.
