Kieran King is a fifth year Slytherin at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Clothing Style
On point
He gets the blue eyes from his mom, and the brown hair from his dad. He always looks neat. Despite being an artist, you will never find ink stains on his clothes or smudges of paint on his hands. He's very meticulous about his appearance. He thinks of himself highly, and wants others to feel the same way. First impressions last forever, and people always judge a book by its cover.

Native Language
English, Danish, French
Earliest Memory
Finger painting

Breaking his hand

Mother was a healer in France when she met Dad, and the rest is history. First, Katie was born, the most brilliant person in the entire world (it's only because she's older, and I will admit she is better than me at a couple of things). Then, Kinsley came along (okay, I'm definitely better than this one.). Finally, me. And you know what they say: third time's the charm. They also say save the best for last.

Blah, blah, blah. Grew up, had a normal life, everything was perfect. My parents loved me, the world adored me. If you ask my mom, she'll say that she started my love for the arts by nourishing my talent ever since I was young. If you ask my dad, he'll say he was the one who inspired me to compose my first piece. Neither of them are right. Some kinds of genius don't need nurture to become great.

My first sign of magic comes at the age of eight, though it was obviously going to happen considering I was in a magical family. To me, it was no big deal, and I don't understand why everyone made such a big fuss about it. Of course, I had magic. I didn't need to prove it by giving a black and white image color. Sigh. Perhaps it was the sentimental appeal of milestones? I don't know.

My parents got divorced when I was thirteen, though you didn't have to be a seer to see it coming. They were always fighting over this and that. God, it was bothersome, to say the least. How do you concentrate when your parents are throwing stuff at each other? Obviously, neither of them got hurt, but they were so loud it was irritating. I went with dad along with Kinsley, and Katie went with mom. (Unfortunately. I wanted her with me but I guess leaving mom with just Kins is kind of cruel.)

Kinsley was sent to Hogwarts, while I remained in Durmstrang, as if Dad was still deciding which school to send both of us to. I was pretty used to transferring around. While it meant having to encounter even more idiots, it also meant I had more candidates to choose from for acquaintances. I had been in Beauxbatons before, so I already had a friend in the form of Kato Dupont. She's terrific okay. Not as great as me, but she's loyal and amusing. But at the end of my third year, it was decided that I'm moving to Hogwarts with Kinsley, apparently it really is the best school for magic in the world, and I have no doubt that I shall excel there as I have in every aspect of my life thus far.

My fourth year was insanely bothersome. Of course, I'd be transferring to Hogwarts the year of the triwizard tournament. Of course, this meant I'd be seeing all the neanderthal I had left behind at both Beauxbatons and Hogwarts. The only bright side there was to this situation was seeing Kato again, but even then, she decided to ditch me for a good part of the year, most notably at the Yule Ball. There was some good that came of that situation. I had encountered another person who had been abandoned by her best friend, and the two of us thus bonded over how much better we were than them. Her name is Jill. I cannot say I do not want to meet her again.

personality and traits

Ambitious, dedicated, quick-learner
Worst Qualities
Haughty, self-absorbed, close-minded
Most Influenced By
His parents
Ever since the day he was born, it's been instilled in Kieran to only do things he knows he can win. Therefore, he is the best at everything he does. He only bothers with things that will make him better, everything else that's unnecessary to achieving so is exactly that - unnecessary. This doesn't sound very fun but he finds joy in being number one in his fields of interests, and that's exactly what he is so he is generally quite happy. He tends to put people 'in their place' by accident sometimes. When he's feeling threatened, he has the tendency to belittle the person he has a problem with until he feels about ten feet tall. A surefire way to befriend him is to fuel his ego, and the closer you get, the more he'll be a little cautious about your feelings. Despite anything, do not underestimate his lack of sensitivity. As long as he feels threatened, he will attack.

Kieran's ambition is admirable, though. He is dedicated to whatever he sets his mind to. If he wants to compose a sonata, give him a couple days. Paint the next great masterpiece? A week. When he's set on something, he will only focus on that something. So, don't catch him while he looks like he's too caught up in his sketchpad or his notebook, or anything, really. It'll take a while for anyone to get him out of his trance. His weakness is chocolate. He's quick at learning whatever he does because of it, he won't give up until he succeeds.

The fact that he thinks he's better than everyone makes him rather close-minded. He is always right, in his opinion. He'll let you live with yours, but only with reminding you pratcically every day that you're totally and completely wrong. When proven wrong, there's a high chance that even then, he won't admit it, and probably go to hiding for a while. He's prone to tantrums but they're never loud or whiny, just the type where he'll lock himself in his room for all eternity and refuse to see anyone.

Kieran lives off of praise and words of encouragement, if he isn't receiving any, then he's 100% sure he'd doing something wrong. He can't be alone – he needs other people around him constantly. So, once he finds someone he likes, he'll claim them, and there's a small chance he'll let go any time soon.

skills and magical abilities
The Arts: He excels at musical and physical, and while he's not particularly interested in showing it, he makes a decent actor as well. He has been composing and making masterpieces since a very young age, and each painting is hung on the wall of the King home.

Transfiguration: He is skilled at this subject because he thinks of it as painting over something, and can envision most things quite clearly in his head.

Wand: Willow, Dragon Heartstring, 9 inches. An ancient and uncommon wand wood with the power of healing. While many confident customers insist on trying a willow wand (attracted by their handsome appearance and well-founded reputation for enabling advanced, non-verbal magic), the willow wands there are have consistently selected those of greatest potential, rather than those who feel they have little to learn.


*His favorite color is red.
*He isn't fond of current music. Only classical holds beauty, in his opinion. But might just be him being stuck up.
*He likes the style and work of Leonid Afremov.
*It's like he's been trained to hate candy, he really doesn't like it.
