The Open-Ended Questions

A. Please answer the following questions as elaborately as possible. (Remember, this part doesn't have to be filled out if it's an expansion character!)

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

Strengths: Sweet, generous, accepting, tolerant, peace-maker, hard-working, dedicated, passionate

Weaknesses: Low self-esteem, lets people walk all over him, doesn't rest when he needs to, candy-coats everything, feels like a burden

In general, Bast is a kind man that would never deny anyone of help. He tries his hardest to please those around him, despite feeling like he always lets them down anyway. He will overexert himself in order to get his work done and skip out on breaks even though he really should take one. He really just wants acceptance and will try his hardest to get there.

2) Has your character's life played out the way they wanted? Have they achieved the goals they set out for their life? Why, or why not?

Bast hasn't really been happy with his circumstances. His first goal was to come out to his family and gain their acceptance which didn't go too well. They disowned him and were content in never seeing him again. His sister was the only one who accepted who he was and took him in. The unfortunate part of her acceptance is that he feels like a burden to Tris. His other goal was to become an actor. That business is hard enough to get into, but Bastian won't stop until he fulfills that dream. He's had minor successes lately, but nothing too major. The best thing he's got so far is an interview with one of the most famous Wizarding World TV Networks - he's banking on a job with that company.

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

Bastian isn't really the relaxing type, so he honestly wouldn't know what to do with a free day. He could imagine Tris dragging him off somewhere to do something fun, and he'd go because it was time he got to spend with his sister. His only request would be that they eat somewhere with good food. That night, he would like to settle down with a good book and enjoy some time to drink tea and enthrall himself in a good story.

4) If your character could only keep 5 possessions, what would they be? Why?

1) He'd keep the ring his grandfather passed down to him when he was only eight years old 2) His book collection - it isn't very big, but he enjoys re-reading the stories 3) The small, plastic trophey Tris got him after his first acting gig as an extra in a minor TV show - it doesn't have any monetary value and some people see it as tacky, but he wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. 4) His wand; magic was one of the only things that got him through his family disowning him. Being a wizard was as much a part of him as his sexual orientation. 5) His script from one of his favorite gigs that was signed by all his fellow cast mates, including some big names in the acting business

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

More Wizarding World TV - it's a great business and it could be thriving even more so. Maybe after a successful acting career, Bast will create and run his own Network. He sure enough has the work ethic for it.

The Character's Background

1) Give a history of your character. History must be at least two paragraphs long. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? etc. (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!)

Bastian Horus Nimr was born on August 29 in Cairo, Egypt to Abasi and Chione Nimr. He was the last of their children, making him the baby, and he was treated as such. Not by his parents, however, but by his siblings and nannies. His parents were always away for work purposes, leaving him and his siblings behind at their home. Throughout his childhood, Bast never really desired anything. Because his family was wealthy, he never went without food, clothing, or toys, and his siblings gave him all the love he needed to suffice. Really, he had a happy childhood in his opinion even though his parents weren't really in it.

His first sign of magic came when he was 7. One of Bast's sisters (most likely Cleo) had gotten a cookie from the jar and instead of getting one for Montu or sharing, she stuck the jar up on the highest shelf so Montu couldn't reach. This had caused Montu to go into a fit of rage, and Bastian hated when his siblings fought. Even at that young age, he was still considered the peace-maker of the family. In a matter of seconds, Bast had caused the cookie jar to come crashing down on the kitchen floor. He proceeded to hand his brother a cookie and clean up the mess. Of course he got fussed at for breaking the dish, but again, it wasn't by his parents, but rather a maid or nanny.

When Bast was of age, he went off to Uagadou, just like his older siblings. He was thrilled to be going off to school with his sisters and brother. In all honesty, he'd gotten very lonely when they had all left him to attend the school of magic. At Uagadou, Bastian thrived, making friends and developing his personality and character. In his fourth year, Bastian realized he was crushing on a boy named Taavetti. It was then when he determined his sexual orientation. Although he hoped his family wouldn't mind which sex he preferred, he was still terrified to tell them. 

After his final year at school, Bastian decided to come out to his family. He had never been so happy to get something off his chest. But that happiness only lasted a few seconds before his parents disowned him in disgust. With nowhere else to turn to, his older sister Tris happily welcomed him to live with her. Bast was more than content to live with his sister. Out of all his siblings, he happened to get along with her the best. Not to mention, she never shamed him for who he was. 

Right before Tris was to be made Head Auror, she had an accident in which she fell into a coma for six whole months. In that time, Bastian picked up a couple of jobs that would pay the bills and take care of any medical expenses. When his sister finally awoke, the healers demanded she be sent to London for rehabilitation. Bastian was more than on board with this decision. He'd go anywhere as long as it meant his sister could get the medical treatment she needed.

In moving to London, Bastian also had better opportunity to pursue his dream of being a famous actor. It was there where he landed his first gig as an extra in an insignificant TV show. That was more than enough to encourage him to continue with his dream. He had a couple more minor successes, but nothing too major. The best thing he has gotten so far is an interview with one of the most famous Wizarding World TV Networks - he's banking on a job with that company. Hopefully all his hard work will have paid off.

2) Give a description of your character's personality. Personality must be at least one paragraph long. Are you noble or sneaky? Arrogant or humble? (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!)

Bastian is a hard-working, kind-hearted guy who tries his hardest in whatever he does. Whatever he sets his mind to, he gives it his all and usually becomes pretty good at it. He picks things up really easily and is a quick thinker. Bast will lend a helping hand to everyone anytime they need him even if it isn't convenient and doesn't discriminate against anyone. He is also a great peace-maker who tries to find solutions that please everyone. 

On the flip side of his dedication and helpfulness is his tendency to overwork and exhaust himself. While trying to please everyone, Bastian will often tire himself out. This doesn't stop him though. He won't quit until everyone is content. He also works way too hard in general. He can't sit still when there's work to be done. And there's always work to be done.

Despite the amazing soul he is, Bastian has low self esteem that probably originates from his family's lack of acceptance. This is also probably why he always wants to please everyone. It's as if he has to prove something to the world. He has been getting better about it the more he develops his acting abilities, however. Well, that, or he has just learned to cover it up well.

In general, Bast is a kind man that would never deny anyone of help. He tries his hardest to please those around him, despite feeling like he always lets them down anyway. He will overexert himself in order to get his work done and skip out on breaks even though he really should take one. He really just wants acceptance and will try his hardest to get there.

3) Are you Pure-Blood, Half-Blood or Muggle-Born? Do you have any notable magical relations? (Remember, you cannot be related to important Harry Potter characters!)


4) Does your character have any special magical abilities? Or special abilities in general (photographic memory, etc.)? Is he or she of a different magical race, such as Veela, Vampire, Werewolf or the like? Part or half of that magical race counts! (Remember, you cannot have one as your first two characters!)

Bastian doesn't have anything real outlandish when it comes to magical talent, but he sure has a gift for acting.

5) What is your character's profession? Does your character plan to enroll your character into the Ministry of Magic? Does your character not work? Is your character a teacher?

Bastian doesn't have a steady job, other than being a struggling and upcoming actor. He picks up jobs every now and then to pick up some money to help Tris out with the bills, but his main goal is to land a major role in a movie or TV show.

6) Describe your character's marital status. Is your character single or married? What is the spouse's name? Any kids?

He is very single - this has been a PSA.

7) What about your character's appearance? What do they look like? Feel free to write down what they look like! If you're using any FC, you can put a picture here! Please state the character's faceclaim!

His model is Chadwick Boseman
