The Character's Background

1) Give a description of your character's personality. It must be at least two paragraphs long, seven sentences each.

Philip has always been a pretty quiet and reserved person. Something that definitely comes from his mother's side of the family, rather than his dad's very energetic side. He prefers to sit back and observe what is happening than being fully thrown into social situations. Once he is comfortable, he will step in, but still will not be quite as engaged as other people. His cousin Wesley, who is his exact opposite in this way, has helped to bring him out of his shell a little bit and has made a vow to make him more social while they are at school.

Against the pressure he feels from his dad's very charismatic and athletic family, Philip prefers to spend his time reading by himself. Ever since he was young, both his aunt and dad had tried to push him towards being a quidditch player, but it was something that he wasn't physically good at or had any interest to do. He still enjoys to watch it, but would be absolutely terrified to play. He finds himself a lot like his aunt Juliana, wanting to learn more about magic and the way it works, hoping to be one of the best when he gets to school.

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.

Julius Tyrrell and Renee Delacroix's love was one that blossomed over a long period of time, had its share of turmoil, and eventually came to fruition in marriage a few years after it began. Though she was uncertain about starting a family, a few years after they were married, Philip Alexander Raoul Tyrrell came into the world.

Renee was not at all confident in her abilities to become a Mum, but with plenty of help around (Julius had a few sisters who were more than happy to dive into the role of an aunt), she never had to worry too much. Her son grew up happy, and healthy... even if he did occasionally miss his parents. With both Julius and Renee in high-powered Ministry careers, it was a good thing Philip had plenty of family around to help care for the growing boy.

When Philip was three, he learned of another aunt-- Aunt Noelle, who even came to live with him for a time. It was nice having an aunt living with him at home... but she didn't always know the best way to care for him. He liked playing with Daddy better than Aunt Noelle, and when Maman and Aunt Noelle kept disagreeing on things... Aunt Noelle left, and he hasn't really seen her since. 

One day, while playing with his Aunt Emilee and cousin Wesley, Philip got his first sign of magic. Emilee was trying to teach Phil how to catch a snitch, but no matter how much he tried, he couldn't get it. He started get more and more frustrated with his Aunt who kept pushing him to try again. Eventually, he reached his limit, screaming at his aunt, and in the process, somehow froze the snitch in midair. He saw what he did, not really realizing that it was magic, but happily grabbed the snitch, showing it off to all of his family.

A year before Philip was about to begin Hogwarts, a girl showed up to his house. She seemed scared and really wanted to talk to his parents. Afterwards, he learned that this girl was his sister, Amelia. His dad hadn't known about her, but once her mother had died, she came to find his family. Having an older sister was weird at first, but Philip quickly grew to like it. The two ended up getting along very well and it was a nice change of pace from the constant energy of his cousin Wesley. She was quiet, smart, and loved reading, making her a lot more similar to him than the rest of his family. He started to look up to her and wanted to be just like her.

Just after Philip got his letter to Hogwarts, his parents decided that their political careers had become too time consuming and that they wanted to focus more on their family. Once there terms were up, they both decided to no seek another term, instead focusing on writing books and becoming political consultants and advisors. Philip was excited to have them home much more often and is looking forward to spending more time with them when he comes home from school.
