The Open-Ended Questions

A. Please answer the following questions as elaborately as possible. (Remember, this part is only a requirement for your third to fifteenth character! However, if you want to have more input on where you character is sorted, then please answer #6!)

1) What would you consider to be your character's strengths, and your character's weaknesses? Elaborate on your answer.

Strengths of his are his strong will and determination. Unfortunately, he can be too headstrong and stubborn, and also tends to act before thinking. Therefore, he is prone to doing stupid things he could have avoided.

2) What goals and objectives has your character set out in their life? Is it to be successful and rich? Is it to find happiness? Why?

Drew wants to find out his past and meet his family, because he feels like it's the puzzle piece that's missing in his life.

3) What's their ideal way of spending a free day? Why so?

His ideal day might either be playing baseball or messing around with his friends. On an even better day, he would be making muffins with his mom.

4) If your character could only keep 5 possessions, what would they be? Why? *Wand- his idenity

  • Phone- it's his identity
  • Stepfather's watch- it symbolises him as a man
  • his cannister - his journey made him fall in love with water
  • his snack pack - what saved him on his journey

5) What one thing would your character change about the wizarding society? Why?

Drew might change the communications currently in place, because it has been difficult to contact people. If not, he would change the age for appiration because, like driving, it;s something that should be learned young.

The Character's Background

1) Give a description of your character's personality. Are you noble or sneaky? Arrogant or Humble? Anything about your character that might help the Sorting Hat decide. (Don't worry, you can copy this onto your character page later!) (Remember, personality must be at least one paragraph long for the first two characters, two paragraphs long for the third to eighth characters, and three paragraphs long for the ninth to fifteenth!)

Drew is the kind of guy to act with his gut, and not with his mind. He’s impulsive and reckless, a fan of passion and a supporter of faith in general. Sometimes he can be too headstrong, which leads him into uncanny situations. For example, he might fly across the world only to realize he doesn’t have a place to stay. Once Drew believes something, it is difficult to change his mind. Like a puppy, he chases after what his heart desires, no matter the cost. In this way, he is over confident in himself.

The overconfidence can make him come off as a jerk or an idiot, and sometimes incredibly thick. He doesn’t have a problem with telling people what to do, and hates not getting his way, so he can also be overbearing. Something people can’t discredit him for his strong will. Drew is able to endure plethora of situations just from his general belief in himself and what he stands for. From time to time he might roll into a fetal position because he feels like he’s in a sticky situation with no exit, but eventually, he will find a way out. Impatient, but also slow and steady is how he gets through it.

Other people don’t phase him, and he finds it easy to strike up conversation. At times, there is a charm to Drew, which is probably part of what gives him the opportunity to make friends. He’s a natural athlete and sporty, so he sometimes might show off his skill set, ranging from dancing to taekwondo to some gymnastics. Despite his recklessness, he does decent academically, and is brainier than most give him credit for. It’s just he acts before using his well versed mind, something he’s been working to change after his life or death journey.

2) Write about the history of your character. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? etc. (Again, you can copy this onto your character page later!) (Remember, history must at least be two paragraphs long for the first two characters, three paragraphs long for the third to eighth character, and four paragraphs long for the ninth to fifteenth character!)

Drew’s story is an up and down roller coaster, unfortunately not sung by exid. His life starts with an unfaithful married man, and a breaking family. The Moon family dynasty was crumbling, but Drew’s own family was beginning. Like fire, loving his mother was dangerous, but that danger is what made her so appealing to the head of the Moon family. In his stale,dastardly life, he had fallen in love and tried to be the best he could, but things weren’t working out so he needed to escape. Parallely, he needed money to maintain the Moon family, leading him to be in debt to a local mafia. Playing with fire must have been a family trait, because while his daughter messed with real fire, the moon family head played with a metaphorical one, getting close to she who made the monetary transactions, the daughter of the mafia head.

Money got tighter and tighter, and the un-god father suffered from soul crushing depression. One thing led to another, and he ended up sleeping with the mafia leader’s daughter. Maybe he would’ve stayed in that situation if he had, but due to lack there of, the mafia leader’s daughter became pregnant. Young and fierce, she refused to give up the child, but also refused to subject the baby to the mafia life she had lived in. In the shadows of the night, she came to an agreement with her father. He would help her escape to America to seek a new life and provide money, but once she was gone, she could never come back or contact him again. In turn, he would do whatever necessary to hide her absence from his mafia, and his enemies.

One year later, she’s gone, assumed to have been murdered. A false body showed up, and the mafia head claimed it’s the work of the man who impregnated her, the man who couldn’t risk the chance of having physical ties to the mafia, and obvious proof of adultery. The head struck swiftly, dealing with the matter internally, without police interference. To anyone else, he had disappeared, a victim of poverty and shady credit. In truth, he had become a personal slave to the head, to pay off his unending debt with his blood sweat and tears.

In America, A new mother lived well in the city of dreams, raising her tiny baby son in a small apartment in the meatpacking district. Unfortunately, the money isn’t enough, and eventually the family of two have to move to a home in nearby Queens. While Drew has a korean name, he goes by his american one as it’s easier to pronounce, and he’s your typical all american kid. He did little league, played soccer, and had a few friends in the neighborhood. No one would have thought twice about his background, and nearly ethnic mafia blood.

Drew was about six years old when his mother’s past came to haunt them. In Korea, rumor spread that the mafia head’s daughter lived. Men eager to gain control and in need of blackmail set up teams to find her in secret. Finally, one team tracked her down in New York. Drew was getting home from preschool, only to find his mother struggling against five men dragging her into a van. The person who had carpooled him called the police, but meanwhile, nothing could be done for his mother.That’s when the ground started rumbling. Although they didn’t know it, they were resting atop a sinkhole. All it took was a push of magic from Drew. The front of the van fell in, then the rest tipped over. His mother found the perfect moment to escape and ran, barely missing the expanding sinkhole. After that day, his mother realized sinkholes couldn’t protect them forever. No matter what she wanted, her past would haunt them.

She got cozy to the classiest version of a gangster there was; a politician. They moved in city with her congressmen boyfriend, who later became her husband. His money, twisted by love for her, set them up with more protection than she could have asked for, especially after he became a senator. Despite enjoying a peaceful childhood after, Drew never forgot the day his mother was almost kidnapped, and he noticed the amounting secrets around him.

Eventually Drew was sent off to Ilvermorny, where he was a decent student,but lacked something. Of all the secrets he wanted to know, he wanted to know about his dad the most. Eventually, his want to understand and know himself and his past led him to run away from Ilvermorny, off to do his own research. To stop him from potentially hurting himself, his mother contacted him and offered a trade deal, to know more about his past.

Drew flew home, where his mother told him about his father dying when he was 9 in Korea, and how he was entangled with bad people. After begging for the man’s name, his mother obliged, even mentioning the man had children, who were his siblings. This ate at him all night, and by morning, he decided to halt his education to find his family, something he could consider due to his privileged life. His mother was against this, so she struck up another deal. If he finished the semester of school, when he came home they would locate his family together.

Fifth year went smoothly, and over the summer, Drew researched and searched for his siblings. With some unusually insightful tips from his mom, who he didn’t know had spies in her father’s former mafia, he was able to locate a sister named Kress. He attempted to send her a friend request and a message saying he was her long lost brother, and asking if her location (the UK), was still intact. She misunderstood, thinking him a scammer, and blocked him.

“You can bring a man to water, but if he doesn’t drink, put an iv in him.” The newly spun phrase did not impress his mother, but Drew did manage to convince her to let him fly to the UK himself to find her and live with her. On the condition, he still attended school.

Thus it was that Drew took a flight to England, landed in London, realized he did not know where his sister lived, and sat down and fetal positioned himself out of stress for an hour on the street. After a while, he remembered a name for one of his sisters facebook friends, named Gino. The man had his phone number on his page so he called and explained how he was related to Kress and came to see her. That is about when Gino broke the news that they were in Korea. Drew spent some more time in fetal position before asking Gino to stay in his house.

It was the worst idea he’d had, to follow Gino’s directions. Somehow, he led him into Scotland and back, into Diagon Alley, and eventually into Hogsmeade. Drew had never trekked so much in his life, nor learned about survival. It was the most harrowing journey he had ever taken. By that time, it was almost time for school, so after finding work in Hogsmeade and living at the Hog’s Head, he traveled to Hogwarts to start his school year. Gino has stopped communicating with him, but hopefully one of his owls will convince Kress to believe him.
