Biography[]

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.

– John Muir

Early childhood[]

Cedric Mercer is a Muggle-born wizard born in 2015, to Tatjana Jugovac and Ferdinand Mercer. He is the eldest of three, he has two younger sisters; Lorna and Vanessa. His mother had such a close relationship with her brother she made him the godfather of all three of her children. He was a doting uncle and an excellent role model for Cedric, Lorna and Vanessa. Tatjana chose her brother over her sister as the guardian of her children out of spite. Her younger sister, the witch, desperately wanted a baby and couldn't have one of her own.

They had movie nights any random day of the week when Ferdinand was too pressured by his work to be more attentive to his children. The same happened when Tatjana was too exhausted from her heavy workload. The kids watched the Princess Bride movie, their mother's favorite, and more recently their father's favorite movie Kill Bill. They were reacting a fight scene complete with wooden 'swords' made from long tree branches that Cedric had found and very carefully crafted for each of them. Lorna broke both of our swords and got a handful of splinters to show for it. Cedric was able to remove the being one easily, the smaller ones embedded in her skin were a lot harder for him to dig out. As their dad walked toward the huddled children to find out what Lorna was wailing about the last couple of shards vanished from the outside of her pointer finger.

During the summer before he began at Ilvermorny, after the 2025 school year, he met a girl from Koldovstoretz, Kara-Murza Poliakoff. Their father's were working together on an essay they wanted published. He tried to be a part of their daily theorizing and whenever he showed the slightest disinterest in their lectures and teachings they sent him outside to entertain himself. It was four and half long months of this strange girl added to the female presence in his home by one. In addition to his two younger sisters that was already three girls too many by his calculations. His uncle Andrej saved him from the torture of multiple girls during working-vacations when his father invited visitors and their children, usually a daughter or small toddler over.

Personality and traits[]

Cedric is not what his parents imagined he would be. He something between a total and complete disappointment and wasted space. His father wanted more from him and never tried leaving Cedric to do for himself which he did with gusto. He's not the type to get bored when left to his own devices and when he had two sisters he needed to entertain he basically wanted nothing if it wasn't for one of them. He's very much a 'hippie' not to say that he is a drug user who rejects conventional values. He uses tobacco but he only smokes it, he doesn't chew and he occasionally abuses alcohol. He's a progressive and he'll fight for human, animal, and the Earth's rights, but he's also a little bit of an anarchist and a hardcore carnivore. He all in when it come to the nonviolent ethic and communal living. He's not too far removed from being an average guy depending on which world you view him from, Muggle or Magic.

Relationships[]

Family[]

Mercer Family[]

Cedric wanted to be closer with his parents than he is. They were scholars with lofty titles and huge vocabularies. He couldn't have followed in their footsteps if he tried. It's not that he's dumb. He can't be bothered to be stuck, stationary, surrounded by hundreds of books and blank sheets of paper. It would easily drive him to madness. He lived by his mother's words to stick close to his siblings. He was always watching out for his little sisters. As he grew up beside them he never asked for anything from his parents if it wasn't something he intended to give to one of his sisters. After his estranged aunt fostered two children he reached out to her, and to them. He has quite a lot in common with them, magic aside.
