Griffin isn't a Hogwarts student. He's homeschooled. But he will be one in fifth year. So can I just answer the quiz now so I don't have to take it again later?

6) Give a description of your character's personality. Personality must be at least one paragraph long. 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!)

Griffin is charming for a couple of minutes when you first meet him. It's easy to become his friend, or even just his ally. He does his research on a person before he meets them. If ever he has to meet someone without having done any prior research, he will find a way to postpone it for a day or so. He's kind of a stalker, but Griffin calls it coming prepared. He doesn't know how to do an actual, on the spot conversation with someone, so getting to know them (without them knowing) for a while helps him steer the conversation to their areas of interest. He's very observant. He likes watching Sherlock and tries to see if he can spot the clues too. He pauses right before those tiny subtitles in white appears and tries to deduce someone too. He's been practicing it on the many people in Hogsmeade, and his 'skills of deduction' are getting better and better. Sometimes, he doesn't need to stalk someone anymore, just make a very good guess.

He's rather blunt, tactless and insensitive, the more you get to know him. He doesn't know what's supposed to be a secret or not, because to him, everything is obvious. He's very apologetic about it though when he accidentally spills something. Aside from that, when you want to know a secret, he's the guy you go to. He normally asks for the promise of a favor in return, and one day he plans on cashing them all in.

He's very brave. Normally, he's the first one to stand up for someone, and he never backs down from a challenge or a fight. He tries observing the enemy's weak spots first, and then contemplates on whether it's better to aim for a physical or verbal confrontation. He's quite skilled in physical, combat fights. Verbal... not so much. Griffin gets tongue tied easily, and often thinks of what to say hours after the opportunity is finished.

His friends mean the world to him, since they're his lifeline to the outside world. Since his mom's very overprotective, and he's really not even supposed to be let out of the house, he's very stealthy, a skill which comes in handy when he wants to meet up with Aevitas. Speaking of Aevitas, they're his best friends. They just don't know it yet.

7) Write about the 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. (Again, you can copy this onto your character page later!)

Griffin was born to Crimson and Phillip Yardley, when Hazel was 40 and Phillip was 46. He was their only child at the time, and an unplanned one at that. Still, they consider themselves very lucky to have him. However, before Griffin was born, his older sister Kae was killed by a dark wizard at the age of only sixteen. Determined not to lose another child, Crimson resolved to keep Griffin safe at all costs. Griffin was is very accident prone and his mother hated it. All of his first signs of magic were healing the cuts and bruises whenever he got them, so that his mom wouldn't find out. From a young age, sneaking out of his house in Hogsmeade and going around was one of his best skills. Both his parents were always so busy working, while he was expected to stay at home at study. He absorbs information fast; his memory isn't photographic but it's close. He normally finishes studying in an hour or so, and uses the remainder of his day to go on an adventure. He enjoyed meeting the students of Hogwarts who frequented Hogsmeade. His mum is the barmaid at the Three Broomsticks, so he hangs around there or Honeydukes a lot.

His mum and dad insisted that he study a lot, and he thought it was preparation for school. However, at the age of eleven, when he received his Hogwarts letter, Crimson tossed it into the fire. He got into one of his biggest fights with his parents about how he's not his sister, and he won't get hurt, but they both insisted it would be better if he was home schooled, where they could keep an eye on him as much as possible, unlike if he went to boarding school. At some point of the argument, his mom mentioned, "Maybe when you're older..." and he has clung on to that phrase ever since. After a couple of months of seeing some of his would-be classmates, he printed out a contract of his own making with the promise that he'd be allowed to go to Hogwarts when he's fifteen, to take his OWLs, then continue the rest of his education there. Reluctantly, his mother agreed.

He likes watching Aevitas. That's the name he came up with for his would-be classmates. He gathers as much information as he can about them, so that when the time is right, he can finally meet them.

8) Write about your character's appearance. How do they look like? Are you planning on using a certain model for your character? If you already have a picture in mind, you can put it here!

Griffin Gif 1

Nat Wolff

Griffin has dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. He's already taller than most boys his age, and he likes that. His hair is almost always a mess because as much as he tries to fix it, it's probably its own living being.

9) 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!)


10) 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 likes? Part or half of that magical race counts! (Remember, you cannot have an "exotic" characters as your first two characters!)


11) What year is your character in?

He's homeschooled, but he's twelve.
