Gryffin Main 5
Personality

Gryffin is a very resilient and bold character who doesn't take defeat lightly most of the time. He is a person who loves to win when they can, appreciates that it's the participation that counts and is of the belief that if you have fun then you've won. He's an individual who's very open to learning new things and is fascinated by knowledge, more so in all the different things in the world and how one can come to know all of it and master them. Although he's fascinated by learning and loves to learn new things, it doesn't make him an enthusiastic student, mostly because he gets frustrated that he can't master the thing he's learning easily and quickly.

Being young and not having anything to particularly influence him negatively, Gryffin is positive and likes to joke around. Although he's not one to actively look for positivity in situations, he's more than willing to back someone up if they can. He likes to see the good in people rather than the negative and has been known to give people multiple chances even when perhaps they aren't deserving of them (not that he's had enough great betrayals to know the true repercussions of giving toxic people multiple chances) just because he refuses to believe that people can be wholly negative. Moreover, he's a courageous individual who seems to have an extensive sense of bravery, fearing very little and being willing to take the plunge in whatever the situation might be from a daunting spell to bungee jumping. In general, Gryffin is a fun person to be around and seems to radiate a positive energy most of the time.

Like everyone, Gryffin has his own downfalls. He can be an extremely stubborn individual and, so long as his mind is set on something and he can see the logic in his decision, it's incredibly hard to waver his decision. Any continued attempts to change his mind may result in the person being the brunt of his anger issues that are incredibly temperamental when he's agitated or annoyed. He's known to snap and be hostile when he otherwise wouldn't be without the built upon annoyance. Likewise, he has a constant need to be in the loop and know all the gossip otherwise the paranoia that the gossip is about him gets too much for him and he gets stressed, once again leading into him becoming more hostile. Subsequently, he can be annoying and ask people multiple times to tell him what's going on and would ask a few more times after getting an answer, just to confirm that it is the right answer and that nobody is lying to him.

History

Austol Avery was one of the more prominent members of the Avery family and, ironically enough, the one who never had any interest in continuing a legacy - mostly because no woman was interested in him and thus the chance never really presented itself to him. No matter how much the wizarding lifeline differed from that of muggles, it still didn't take away from the fact that his chance to build a legacy was slipping fast and, if he didn't act upon it soon, he'd never be able to have one. He was an ageing man, sixty-years-old by the time he would eventually have his first child, and the need to feel remembered and to experience familial life from a parental standpoint were important to him.

On the even of his fifty-ninth birthday, Austol met Trueth Lamphier, a pure-blooded witch who belonged to the influential Lamphier family; a Cornish pure-blooded family that was highly influential in the southern parts of Cornwall. Trueth was ten years Austol's junior and was seeking a way to have a child herself, nearing her final years of fertility even despite magic-kind's elongated period. Whilst it was a desperation for children and continuing family legacies that brought them together, a genuine spark and growing love kept them together and saw the birth of a son.

Gryffin Lamphier Avery was born just weeks before his father turned sixty and his mother fifty. His birth was nothing short of a miracle for his parents and as a result, he was babied from an early age. Even with the additions of siblings, each of them got babied as much as the other and got whatever they wanted without question.

Gryffin grew up in a small magical community near Ottery St Catchpole and lived a best of both worlds life. Whilst the Avery family had traditionally prescribed to the idea of blood supremacy, newer generations were more open and accepting and Austol was one of the ones who led the change within the family and, subsequently, he saw it as a must that his children be exposed to the muggle lifestyle. Gryffin and his siblings attended a muggle primary school and whilst they knew of their pure-blooded heritage and that magic existed, their parents attempted to lessen their usage in front of them as to not crush their children's interest in the muggle lifestyle.

Although Gryffin's simple first magical experience of making a plastic chair levitate was rather boring and mundane, it was a world of relief to his parents as they had feared he was a squip; him having his experience at nine-years-old. From that moment on, his parents began preparing him for the life of magic ahead of him. Whilst they didn't teach him spells, potions or anything of the sort, they allowed him to experiment with what bursts of magic occurred, remaining calm and collected when things broke or things were destroyed.

Recently the anticipation for his letter to Hogwarts has grown and, subsequently, his parents have already began shopping for that chapter of his life, him joining them to get his first full and proper glimpse at the wizarding world.
