Magnus Larsen is a sixth year Gryffindor Student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.


Magnus has dark, chocolatey-brown hair, like his sister Astrid, which is almost always unkempt, and dark green eyes, too. If he lets it, he can grow a beard quite easily, and honestly, it just depends on his mood on whether he wants one or not. He dresses casually always, copying looks from movie stars to try and feel the fantasy.

The Larsen family were a long line of Norwegian pure-bloods, one of the typical anti-muggle pro-purity lines who looked down on those lacking in magic. They had a son, Kristoffer, who happened to be a squib. So, at the age of ten, when they'd lost all hope of him showing magical ability, they sent him off to an orphanage and told everyone outside the family he'd caught dragon pox and perished.

In reality, the boy thrived, adopted by a well-to-do couple in England at age twelve - one of whom was a squib herself - and receiving high-calibre education in Eton and Oxford. Eventually he met the very pretty, very magically adept Viola Macmillan, a recent Hufflepuff alumna.

They married the next year, a few months before Viola inherited ownership of her parents' popular sweetshop, and eventually went on to have three children. The eldest, Magnus, spent a lot of his time alone, watching cheesy romance films or kitchy and camp comedies, thus resulting in a corny, cheesy sense of humour.

Magnus' first sign of magic was when he was about six, and he was playing with his brother, Kell, who would have been five, when he accidentally snapped Kell's toy. Kell started crying, and Magnus panicked. Before he knew what had happened, the toy had been fixed just like that, and Kell was happily going about his business playing with it.

Magnus' parents are slightly obsessed with him and his siblings living healthily, so while they're allowed as many sweets as they want, they have to make sure they do enough exercise that it doesn't affect them "negatively". Because of this stance of his parents', Magnus grew up playing Quidditch, taking part in athletics competitions and swimming clubs, not that he enjoyed any of it, and he tried to get out of it at any given opportunity.

At first, he attended Durmstrang with his siblings, as his father wanted him to "get in touch with his heritage" and have more of an opportunity to practise his Norwegian, which was limited. All was great there, and his Norwegian did in fact improve.

He's now ready and excited to finish his studies at Hogwarts.

Magnus is introverted, but also extroverted. He prefers to be alone, watching an old film or something on his own, but that doesn't mean he'll shy away from company if anyone asks. When he's out with friends he does come alive, but that doesn't mean he doesn't miss being left to his own devices. Because of his obsession with old muggle films and TV shows, he's got a very cheesy sense of humour. Like, he will make stupid puns and jokes to no end.

Magnus is also a hopeless romantic. His parents reckon it's all the old movies he used to watch. He wants everyone he knows to have their own Hollywood ending, riding off into the sunset. Cheesy, no? Bless. He can't help it though, it's just in his nature. Because his head's always in the clouds, he still doesn't know what he wants to do with his life, and if you ask him what he want's to be when he graduates, I promise you, he'll respond with 'happy'. I wasn't kidding about him being cheesy.

Magnus has some big ideals that he believes in. He's really into politics, and he can and will talk for hours about how capitalism funds the bourgeoisie and feeds off the proletariat class, much to the irritation of his siblings. But he's not joking #StayWoke.

Out of his siblings, he's closest and most protective of Kell. Kell will always be his baby brother, and since he was born, he's been looking out for him specifically. He and Kell will do everything together. Like, everything, and he wants Kell to know he's always gonna be there for him. (cheesy, no?)
