The first thing you need to know about Gino is that he's an extreme chemistry nerd. He got it from his mother. He can recite each and every element from the periodic table, from Hydrogen to Ununoctium, including the elements of the extended periodic table. He makes puns and jokes from the elements of the periodic table, an absolute wiz at chemistry, think Honey Lemon from BH6 but with more chill, and his favourite song is the Periodic Table song. His fascination with chemistry is his defining trait. You can always find him in an empty classroom making crazy chemical concoctions.

Trait number two: Intelligent. Having a chemical engineer as a mother, he is expected to be as brilliant as she is. So, he spent more than half of his childhood reading books and studying both Muggle and Magical subjects. Though you cannot really tell he is very intelligent since he rarely displays it, except when he is fanboying about chemistry and the different elements.

Because of his pampered lifestyle, he is ridiculously incompetent at household chores. Sure, he can make toast and pancakes (He makes very delicious pancakes, by the way), but he cannot clean without accidentally breaking something. He initially doesn't know how to properly care for plants, until he entered Hogwarts. He slowly became competent at it after several years of rampaging magical plants and several injuries. The Herbology professor was not pleased, at all.

He also cannot see the sharp line between expensive and cheap. He will buy anything if it's in his budget. If it's not, then tough luck for him. When he is around his father, he acts as gentlemanly and as proper as he can. Jun made it a strict rule to act with discipline and respect since that was what others expected for scions of the Seo Clan. But when his father is out of sight, he is as chill as he can be.

Gino has a lot of weird quirks. He does not consider anything breakfast, lunch, or dinner if it doesn't have rice in it. Hey, if you're Asian, you get used to eating rice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Of course it's going to feel weird if you eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner without rice. He is also an avid Tumblr user. A certain post made him carry fake blood anywhere in case someone asks him to guard their possessions for them, but only if it's in the Muggle world. There is a way to know if he considers you close. When he gives you an unusual nickname, it's clear that he considers you a close friend.

Another thing to note is that he once had a vocal tic as a young kid, which was 'da ze'. It eventually faded as he grew older but when he experiences extreme excitement, it comes back.


The Seo Clan is held in esteem in economic and military circles in South Korea, one such branch of the family renowned for their line of business titans. However, there is one thing the other families didn't know, the Seo were wizards and witches, who were uninterested in the bland careers the normal wizarding folk have. They have been producing business titans for several generations now and all have been as interested in business as their predecessor. Except for one. There is always a flaw in the system, no matter how much you try to avoid it.

It all started when Seo Joon-ho accompanied his father in one of their usual business meetings. He had been 17 years of age, notorious for rejecting each and every arranged marriage his father had made. He was forced to go because if he doesn't, he will be rejected of his inheritance. Kang Eun-hye was just as uninterested in marriage as he was, preferring to coop up in her room. The two were given time to know each other before they are wed in their 18th birthday.

During the year they were given to get to know each other, finding out a lot about each other. Eun-hye found out about Joon-ho's mommy problems and Joon-ho found out about Eun-hye's passion for chemical science. Are they going to fall in love? Hahahahah... no. Instead of falling in love with each other like their parents wanted, they inexplicably became platonic soulmates. Who knew you'd find your platonic other half in just a year's time? Learning of each other's predicaments, they didn't want for the other to be pulled into another forced marriage so they made a pact.

What was the pact, you ask? A platonic marriage to save each other from a possibly chaotic marriage. Being good actors they were after years of pretending to care about the families' businesses, they seamlessly fooled their parents into thinking that they were in love. Pretty soon Kang Eun-hye became known as Seo Eun-hye and Joon-ho inherited his family's company. The first test was done, the second was looming just around the corner.

Soon, their parents were asking for grandkids. Their reaction was too look at each other incredulously. They agreed to the marriage, now they have to procreate?! They couldn't find a way around this though, so they did the do and they ended up with a son, whom they called Jin-ho.

Jin-ho inherited his mother's love of chemical science and, at the tender age of 5, started to memorize the periodic table. At the age of 8, he started to join his mother in her chemical experiments. Although, he was expected by both parents to be able to inherit the business, which he greatly despises. Despite that, he complied to his parents' wishes, since he respects them greatly. His younger sister by 1 year, Eun-mi, didn't exactly feel the same. They still remained a good family behind the strict business family facade.

When Jin-ho was 10, the family moved to Britain for something he doesn't know about, but he reckons that they were moving their headquarters to Europe. No matter, he liked it here. Eun-mi, however, didn't like the move. They were fine in South Korea. Plus, she missed her friends back home. This would lead to several arguments between her and their parents. When they arrived in Britain, the family changed their names to Jun (Joon-ho), Eunice (Eun-hye), Gino (Jin-ho), and Yumi (Eun-mi).

When Gino turned 11, he was accepted into Hogwarts. The family were skeptical, because all those years and generations, they only sent their children to Mahoutokoro, and nowhere else. But their children's education was more important than tradition so they let Gino attend. He was Sorted into Ravenclaw, but he didn't really get the concept of having Houses. Like do they really need to split the student body up by traits? Whatever.

Yumi soon followed, getting sorted into Gryffindor. The siblings enjoyed the first few years in Hogwarts, studying to their very best. That is, until Gino's 4th year. Their parents wanted Yumi to pursue a career in chemical engineering, but the girl didn't want to. She wanted to pursue her own choice of career. This led into a very big argument which lead to Yumi furiously packing up a suitcase and a bag of galleons and walking out, never to be heard from again.

Gino, being the good big bro he is, became very worried about Yumi and started to look for her, to no avail. Yumi's been always good at hiding. Even his owls can't find her. Right now, he's entering his 5th year. But he's still looking for his younger sis.

Seo Joon-ho Father Strict as he may be, Gino does love his dad and he admires how hardworking he is. He is still bitter about the fact that Joon-ho's words were what drove Yumi to leaving.
Seo Eun-hye Mother Truly Gino's favourite out of his two parents. Eun-hye was the one who introduced him to chemistry and taught him everything he knows. Gino knows his mother is turning the whole of Britain upside-down trying to find Yumi so he helps her in his own way.
Yumi Seo Sister He misses Yumi a lot. Yumi's last words still stung and he could still remember the disappointment in her eyes. He wants to find her and apologize, and hopefully mend they bond they had as kids.
Sadie Cha Distant relative Sadie, known to him as Skylark, is Gino's amazing Quidditch-playing relative and arguably his most favourite relative next to Yumi. He admires her a lot and hopes to be as successful as her someday.
Tassie Wife :D Tassie is very fun to annoy, Gino notes. Also, her prosthetic arm is awesome, Gino wonders if they could fire missiles with the right tools. He's experimenting on making Greek fire to see if her arm can fire these. Also, Tassie is very cute when she's mad!
