2) Write about the history of your character. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? It must be at least three paragraphs long, seven sentences each.

  • August 18, 2025. The Han family was known for being huge and long-lasting. In fact, most of them had gathered on this date to celebrate the 138th birthday of Han family patriarch Han Seungman. It was a grand party, filled with all sorts of festivities to celebrate the grand occasion. By most standards, it was grander than most parties due to the sheer number of descendants attending. And to top it all off was something truly spectacular: a wizarding fireworks show. It was to be among the biggest ever attempted, and it had taken a lot of work to coordinate. All the hard work lead to nothing when several drunk relatives decided to try and launch them early for an even bigger surprise. Keyword: tried. And unfortunately, it lead to one of the biggest tragedies in modern magical Korean history. They tell you not to play with fire for a reason.
  • 137 people died in the Han fireworks disaster, which had the highly explosive fireworks explode on the ground. The initial explosion caused many deaths, and the layout of the grounds made for even more deaths when the fires began raging. The exits were too far in between, and too small to allow for large groups of people to escape. It wasn't much better for those who could survive both the explosion and the fires. Injuries ranged from third-degree burns to many splinching accidents from of-age relatives trying to get away. But the majority of the people present when the fireworks exploded found themselves dead. The deaths ranged from the man of honor Han Seungman to several of his young descendants.
  • It was almost like something like this was to be expected, though later investigations ruled it an accident. Most of the youngest Han descendants were several miles away from the festivities, being taken care of by several older relatives. In the blink of an eye, they found themselves orphans. Han Kogyeol and his twin Soongyeol such children. They were two years old, babbling and bright-eyed at ahjummas as they called out their parents as being among the victims. Most of these children were carted off by their surviving parent(s) or closest relatives. But both of their parents had been only children, and his grandparents hadn't been as blessed to have a similarly long life. Their only known relative was his grandfather's dongsaeng who lived in England.
  • Han Kangwon had left his family at a young age for England, and had hardly left since. Taking on the name Thomas Han, he stayed and taken up several jobs in old bookstores and antique stores before opening his own. His big bustling family was alright, but he was more about dusty volumes and cool artifacts than whatever bickering his relatives managed to start up. The Hans had learned to stop sending invitations, and Kangwon was alright with that. He lived alone, never taking neither husband or wife, never fathering any sort of children. That was, until news of the tragedy came to light. He'd rushed over to Korea as soon as he could, and to the surprise of his relatives, dutifully began organizing the family affairs. He'd never wanted a family, but he knew he had a duty to the young twins, and brought them to England once the family began to heal.
  • Soongyeol's given English name was Apollo, and he shares the same passion for the arts as his namesake. The newly-created family lived above Kangwon's shop in Lincliff City, and what better place to raise a creative child than somewhere like a bookstore? While Dionysus scoured the streets for new challenges to meet and beat, Apollo preferred to stay inside and explore the shop. The bookcases were the catalysts for his intense imagination. There was nothing in the shop that couldn't amuse him. Dionysus can have his bravery, Apollo was sticking to being better than everyone else despite being a child. His first magical moment came when he was eight, and Uncle left him alone in the shop while he went out somewhere. He remembers that Uncle specifically told him not to touch a case. Well, he touched the case and it disappeared. He was in the middle of crying and panicking when Uncle came back and the glass came back. Thanks, magic.
  • Apollo entered Hogwarts at age eleven, and was promptly sorted into Slytherin after a solid two minutes. It was obvious from the start who the top of the class would be. No one knew the answers better than he did, and even if they did, they couldn't beat his well practiced hand up into the air. Although he wasn't as popular as his sporty and loud twin, Apollo had his fair share of friends. When he wasn't reading books, he was actually having mildly fun adventures around the castle or Hogsmeade. He graduated at the top of his class, as expected.
  • These days, Apollo is helping Uncle Kangwon run the shop back home.
