6) Give a short description of your character's personality. Are you noble or sneaky? Arrogant or Humble? Anything about your charcter that might help the Sorting Hat decide. (Don't worry, you can copy this onto your character page later!)

Matt,unlike Alfred,is really shy, and is often ignored.He is bashful and quiet and doesn't like to hurt others. He owns a young polar bear cub called Mr.Kimijarou, who cannot seem to remember Matthew's name. Matthew likes to call himself 'Canada' or 'Canada-san' because he was born in Canada. He loves to play ice hockey, because Canadians in general like it.

He stresses that his country has a prime minister and not a president. That he speaks English and French,not American, that he pronounces about right, that Z is pronounced 'Zed' not 'Zee.'He can argue to his wits' end about it.

He is generally unnoticed and sheer nerve is something he lacks.

7)Give a short 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!)

Matthew Alfred Kirkland, commonly known by his preferred alias, was born on July 1, along with his twin Alfred, whose middle name was Matthew, being born three days later. Their mother,Alice, could not keep up with the care of both children,so she put Alfred up for adoption, merely because he was the younger and apparently more annoying than Matthew. So young Matthew grew up as if he had been an only child, contented- he didn't know about his brother. And it remained that way for awhile, as his mother had hoped. Until the owl came to Matthew's window, bearing the letter that would change the relationship between him and his mother forever.

Matthew, ten at the time, unfurled the parchment with trembling fingers and gasped loudly as he read.He was so shocked he nearly fainted.


I'm Alfred. You won't remember me- our parents will have made sure of it. You'll have noticed that I have referred to your parents as "our." I have learnt the whole story from the Sersuns, and I needed to find you and tell you. My name is Alfred. I'm three days younger than you and was put up for adoption because Alice could not put up with me too.

Alfred F.Kirkland

Matthew went down and showed the letter to his mother. She sucked in a deep breath and closed her eyes. "He speaks the truth." she murmured after a few minutes' silence between the two. "It was you or him, we were poor,Matthew, yes...and I chose you."

"Why didn't you tell me?" He asked quietly. He blinked discreetly and listened closely for an answer. Alice Kirkland's breaths were slow and deep. She said nothing for a while.

"I was scared." she replied at last.

"Whatever for?" Matthew asked gently.

Alice said nothing. So,Matthew didn't press the matter any further- he peered out of the window to see. "We're rich now though..."

"Matthew..." sighed his mother. "It's really complicated."
