Biography[]

Men in rage strike those that wish them best.

– William Shakespeare

The MacLeod's have a long and twisted past in Scotland dating back to the early 1600s. It started off simple enough, petty theft really. A cow from one family, chickens from another. A bit of fun for the kids Archibald MacLeod had informed the law when they'd come knocking at his door. Of course, he never told them he was the one to put them up to it. As the years went on their petty thefts developed into something more. Much more. The MacLeod name became infamous in the muggle world. But the MacLeod's were never ones to be content to just settle when there was more out there, not that they knew it at the time so for the next few millenium they were somewhat accepting of their standing. It wasn't until the 1950's that it all changed.

Her name was Davina Campbell, the seventh child of a twelve kid family. She was looking for a way to make her parents notice her. Jonathan MacLeod was her way to do that. He was the heir to the MacLeod family business, there were certain things that were expected of him. None of those included hooking up with Davina Campbell. But of course, when the child was conceived they couldn't just abandon her. No, the child was a MacLeod. And so, nine months later a little boy by the name of Aaron MacLeod was born into the world to the newly married couple. The Campbell's were an odd family, they'd moved to the city only a few years before and strange things always seemed to happen around them. Unexplainable things. It took only three years before the unexplainable things started happening in the new young couples lives. Jonathan didn't understand it. He only knew it was his new wife's fault. In a way it was, after all. The strange occurrences surrounding the Campbell family really weren't that unexplainable when you knew they were witches.

For years the couple lived just accepting the strange occurrences as a daily part of their lives. It wasn't until Aaron's 11th birthday that Jonathan found out the truth. When the letter came through the window on the leg of an owl. Of course, after that sighting Davina had to tell her husband everything. He didn't take it too well. Not until it hit him that this change, although strange and uncertain, was exactly how he could make his mark on the family business. So he agreed to his son being sent to attend Hogwarts where he would learn the very best skills and eventually, take over the family business. Integrating it into the wizarding world. He succeeded. And so the business was passed from generation to generation becoming more violent and bloody with each transfer of power, each trying desperately to make their mark on the business.

Early childhood[]

Bruce MacLeod was born on a comfortable evening in late April of 2010, to Aileen and Angus MacLeod. He has two brothers and three sisters. He was their yellow-eyed demon. That's what both his parents called him, others may have done the same. As an infant he had a case of Muggle jaundice that it surprisingly took a lot of effort to ride him of. His life from then on eked out as normal for a pure-blood wizarding family. His magic showed itself at seven, by the age of nine he needed to be constantly reprimanded for losing his temper. Growing up in the MacLeod family he was shown the basics of survival in the family business. He was taught the hard way that whatever he does he should do it right, even if it was something wrong. He learned how to steal, he learned how to fight, if and when it came to it he learned how to take a life. In 2017, at the ripe age of seven, Bruce had joined a group of boys gathering to ooh and aah over a shiny something new that no one else had. A much younger Bruce was always one to be disgruntled when faced with the windfall of another person. He had taken a liking to a brand new toy a nearby boy, Steenie Lester, had gotten for his birthday. He wanted it, and he took it. It led to a fight with Steenie's older brother Jockie, Bruce could have taken the older boy if not for all of Jockie's friends at his back. He ended up getting one good punch in before he ran. He was able to trip one of Jockie's friends who grabbed hold of the hood of his sweater. Jockie and the other tripped over the kid on the ground in a huge pile of bodies that Bruce gladly left behind toy in hand.

He didn't make any personal connections with any of the Muggles he was using to find his network to self-gain. He stole from and killed them as he saw fit. He slowly became an expert in Muggle weaponry taking a liking to handguns.

His younger sister Narah, the prodigy, got a letter from Hogwarts and an invitation from Durmstrang in late 2033. Needless to say, just to show up her siblings, she chose Durmstrang. The attack was quick. A rogue werewolf they said. She'd have had no chance to defend herself they claimed. She was the family disgrace. The abomination. It didn't matter who she'd been before. It didn't matter what she was able to do. All that mattered was what she was now. A werewolf. The moment she was out of the hospital they disowned her. They gave her enough time to collect her things before they banished her from the property.

Personality and traits[]

Bruce was a 'yellow-eyed demon' as a baby. He was a terror of a child. He squealed all night long, he was not quiet, no one slept well after he was born not even him. Once he learned to move around using his own arms and legs he was a problem for more than just his parents. He was a complete danger to the human existence. He was the kid who 'borrowed' things and never gave them back. He was the one who stole something from and claimed he'd never seen it before. He was raised that way and didn't ever try to be different. He was resentful of other people being given things when he was always left no other choice than to take what he wanted. He was always causing some sort of trouble, he was kicking someone or something. He was hitting someone or something. He was even known for spitting on people. He didn't spit on things because he knew the things wouldn't care as much as people did. He liked to upset people, he fed off of their aggressive energy as if it kept him alive.
