Vincent was born to two Muggles on Christmas day in Dublin Ireland. He was the second of three children. His older brother, Conley, was born 3 years before him, and his sister,Norah, was born 4 years after. Vincent became very close with both of his siblings, but had an especially strong relationship with Conley. The two were hardly ever apart and did everything together. Whatever Conley did, Vincent was there doing it with him, or trying to do it just like him. Conley was his role model, his guardian, and best friend.
While he grew up, Vincent's father,Kyran, was very strict. Not matter how small of an issue, Vincent was constantly yelled at and belittled by his father. Nothing he did ever seemed to be enough to please him. While their father was around, Vincent and his siblings did their best to stay out of his way. His mother, Myrna, was the exact opposite. She was kind, caring, and did all she could for her children. She was Vincent's safe haven, and would go to her whenever his father would yell. She comforted him and made sure he always knew how loved he was.
Shortly before his 10th birthday, Vincent's worst nightmare came true. While playing in the snow with Conley and Norah, Vincent lost his toy in the road. He ran out to get it, not seeing the oncoming car. Conley unfortunately did. He ran out to push his brother out of the way, getting hit in the process. He was rushed to the hospital, but didn't survive. Vincent had lost his brother and best friend. The one person he cared for more than anything was gone, and it was all his fault. He buried the guilt he felt inside, covering it with a happy and goofy facade. He channeled his brother's charm, humor. and fun spirit, refusing to show how broken Conley's death had really left him. No one would ever be able to connect with him the way his brother had, so he built a wall, blocking everyone from seeing the real him and not just the mask he wore.
Shortly after Conley's death, strange things started happening. When he would start to feel upset or angry, things around the house started to break. Many times, things would fall of shelves with no explanation. Things began appearing in different spots than where Vincent put them. He had no clue what was going on, but never thought that it was because of him. Kyran, on the other hand, always blamed Vincent. He thought Vincent was breaking things intentionally because he was upset about Conley and wanted attention. Kyran was constantly yelling at him when things would break and began to start taking things away from him, though they kept magically appearing back in Vincent's possesion.
Not long after he turned 11, Vincent and his family received an unexpected visit.A woman from some sort of special school arrived at their door with a letter for Vincent. She explained to him and his family that he had magic and was accepted into a school for magic children. Instantly, Kyran claimed this woman was a fraud and tried to expel her from their home. In order to show him she was telling the truth, she pulled out her wand and levitated a chair, claiming that Vincent would be able to do the same and more after going to the school. Kyran turned on Vincent, calling him a freak and that someone like him wasn't welcome in their home. Myrna came to Vincent's defense, saying that if he had to leave, she and Norah would as well. they packed their things, leaving Kyran alone. It hurt Vincent to know that his own father didn't want him. It buried the feeling inside along with all the rest of his hidden emotions.
The following September, Vincent got all of his school supplies and prepared to depart for Hogwarts. It was hard knowing that he was leaving his mother and sister behind, and really wished that Conley would have been here to see everything. He would've loved that fact that Vincent had magic. He boarded the train, sitting by himself for the journey, too nervous to speak to anyone. After he arrived, he took a seat to be sorted and was put into [Insert House here].
The next few years were a blast for Vincent. Though he still had tough days, Hogwarts seemed to help make things better. He's made a good handful of friends, and he loves spending time with them, though none know that there is still something hiding under his goofy exterior. Everything about the magical world still fascinates him and thoroughly enjoys learning more about it. Shortly before his fifth year, another surprise came to his family as his sister also received a letter to Hogwarts. It made Vincent beyond happy to know that his little sister would be attending Hogwarts with him.
After graduating, Vincent worked a few odd jobs here and there, his favorite being in a joke shop. Now, he's trying to decide what to do with the rest of his life.
