Riley Tsuda 3

Riley is very much a stereotypical Ravenclaw. He loves books, absolutely loves them. His nightstand has no less than the next three books he plans on reading. For the most part Riley's very quiet compared to that of his brother but in his own ways, such as the classroom and ambitions, he's very much the opposite. He doesn't know how to deal with his negative emotions that well and when he's shouting and screaming you very much want to get out of the way.


Evandro Tsuda, a Brazilian muggle born to two Japanese immigrants from Osaka lived comfortably in Rio de Janeiro after ranking high up in the military. It was there that he met British muggle born to two Korean immigrants, Aurora Kang who was stationed out there with the British military. The two had a whirlwind romance and within a year or so of meeting each other they were married and expecting twin children. When the day arrived, 19th April 2010, the two were anticipating parenthood and before long Aurora gave birth to twin sons Rory and Riley.

After the birth of their children the couple returned to military service, alternating year by year. For the first four years of their lives the twins were raised by their father as they moved to a larger house in Rio. As the twins turned four their mother returned from Brunei and their father was deployed to the capital Brasília for domestic purposes.

As their father was deployed their mother taught them English and Korean, the two of them becoming fluent much like they had with Portuguese and Japanese earlier in their lives. As the twins turned 7 news came that there had been a riot in the capital and that their father had been gravely injured in the process. The family of three waited on baited breath until one week later it was revealed to them that their father had succumbed to his injures.

The twins had their first magical experience a year later. The two had been painting and in the midst of a play fight the two began throwing paint at each other. To their mother's amazement - and horror - the throwing turned to the paint levitating and then being thrown at each other. Not knowing what was wrong with her children Aurora began to do some research and eventually found her sons were wizards. Having done her extensive research and asking friends who, coincidentally, were wizards and witches themselves Aurora eventually settled on moving to Stirling, Scotland in hopes that her sons would be accepted into Hogwarts.

Returning to the military meant that Aurora had to find a place for her sons to stay. Being an only child and her parents too old to look after them she began to look for magical alternates and eventually set on Lil Bundles in Hogsmeade, a place her wizarding friends told her about. The two stayed there for only a year before their mother was killed in action, causing them to become permanent residents in the form of orphans. It had been their mother's dying wish for all of the family's savings to be converted into the magical currency and locked away in a shared bank account.

Rory and Riley eventually received their letters to Hogwarts and began to attend year round, visiting their grandparents during the summer. Rory was sorted into Slytherin and Riley into Ravenclaw, both excelling and aiming high.

      • Alternatively he's trying to write his feelings down but each book has been met with a fiery end

  • He's honestly the type to google something knowing it was creepy or scary and then regret it for the next month
    • Horror films are a no-no, full stop
  • Definitely conforms to the mindset of "I don't like labels" but at the same time is willing to label himself so people will leave him alone
    • Demi-homoromantic for sure, there's no doubt about that
    • Teeters between demi-homosexual, grey-homosexual and plain homosexual
      • Finds sexual intercourse to be a weird thing; not weird in that it's //sex// but weird in that he knows he'd attach his feelings to his first time and isn't sure how he'd deal with potentially breaking up with them
  • He loves that his patronus is a barn owl
    • Also hates it since he finds them to be creepy at times
