Full Name: Luca Morgan
Age: 34
Date of birth: 1988
Birthplace: Rochester, NY, America
Current home: Hogwarts staff quarters during school term; rented room above leaky Cauldron during holidays, where he works part time.
Blood Status: Muggleborn
Sexual Alignment: Demisexual; demiromantic
Wand type: Pine; phoenix feather; 10 inches


Hair colour and style: Black and short; he tends to wax it or style it.
Eye colour: Light blue, although in certain lights it can appear grey; in other light, it appears a stunning bright blue
Height: Six foot two.
Body type: Fit, but lean, and all round well-toned.
Dress sense: It depends on the day; he’s either really neat and proper or he’s casual as fudge. Usually for work, he wears shorts and a t-shirt.
Birthmarks: None.
Tattoos: None.
Scars: A few here and there, but nothing major.
Piercings: He’s got pierced ears.



Likes: (3 minimum)
- The Deaf community.

- Looking good, although he’s not always bothered.

- His alone time.

- Books/reading

- Cooking; he’s actually really good at it.

- Helping people


Dislikes: (3 minimum)
- Verbal spells (he can’t perform them well).

- Crowds or places with too many people.

- The prejudice of Hearing people against Deaf people.

- Not being understood.

- Being told that he should ‘try harder’ or that he gets preferences/aid. (It’s not aid to have an Interpreter in class. It’s a tool so he’s on equal footing.

- Romance (he’s too scared to try again); her


Strengths: (3 minimum)
- Non-verbal/wandless magic, since he has never learnt how to speak properly and pronouncing words is hard.

- He’s really good at finding out of the box methods to solve problems.

- Surprisingly, Luca is really good at dancing, even if he can’t hear music. He can feel the tempo (if there’s no other vibrations) and he’s just naturally inclined to dancing.


Weaknesses: (3 minimum)
- Most areas of magic, since he can’t perform a lot of verbal magic.

- Reading lips; he’s good at it, but not the best and he sometimes struggles. He also doesn’t like it.

- A good book; he loves reading.

- Obviously, his hearing; since he is Deaf, it affects a lot of aspects of his life.


Positive traits: (3 minimum)
- Tenacious; he isn’t a quitter and he works hard for what he wants. Even if there are roadblocks or things in his way, he bounces back quickly.

- He’s adaptable, able to take what he’s given and run with it.

- Friendly; he’s just naturally amiable, and likeable.

- Luca has always been helpful; if he sees a need, he steps up.


Negative traits: (3 minimum)
- Somewhat insecure in the Hearing world; he’s used to the Deaf community, and not having his Deaf friends around is somewhat intimidating for him, even at 34.

- He tends to be somewhat biased towards Deaf people and doesn’t always take to the Hearing; he’s prejudiced towards his kind.

- He is a huge gossip.

- He’s afraid of romance after what happened the last time (see backgroun)

- Sometimes, Luca can think of himself as really great for accomplishing so much despite what most would consider a ‘disability’.



Born Deaf, to two Deaf parents and a Hearing sister, Luca grew up happy and healthy, learning ASL from young. The town he grew up in was one that was mostly Deaf, and therefore those he interacted with almost always knew ASL. It was discovered he was magical when he tried to sign something new at the age of 5 and promptly made the cake on the table fly into the cat. The cat never quite forgave him for that.

At the age of 11, instead of going to Ilvermorny, they hired a private tutor from the magical world that was also Deaf; part time, he also attended a local Deaf school, learning both things from the magical world and the muggle world. He has, therefore, never been the best at magic, although his non-verbal and wandless skills are there. His roots had always been in the muggle world with his family, and it was there he stayed.

He went off to Gallaudet as soon as he passed his SATS, taking a degree in human resources. A few years later, at the age of 22, Luca graduated and proceeded to get an internship at the University itself, which progressed to a full-time job. His sister, meanwhile, not only found a boyfriend in her course but eventually got married. His relations to his brother-in-law is good, and the two often went out for drinks together.

A few years later, Luca was spotted and picked up by a modelling agency.

It was another few years later that he met her, one of the other models on a shoot who took an interest in him. They started talking (through text and whatnot, since she was hearing and didn't know ASL). As time went on, they grew closer, their text conversations going on for hours and hours. The inevitable happened, and a few months later, they started dating.

He lost his virginity to her.

What she didn’t know, however, was that he could read lips. He had told her he didn’t enjoy it and wasn’t the best at it, and she’d assumed it meant he didn’t know how. That was her mistake. One day, in between shoots, he caught her chatting with someone. He had been the topic, and he still remembers her words until this day: I only wanted to see how a deaf person did it. I never cared for him. I don’t know how to end it.

When he confronted her, her expression confirmed he hadn’t misread, and thus ended what Luca thought was his happy-ever-after.

He quit his modelling job and left the US behind, heartbroken and feeling lost. He wandered around the world for a while, taking up odd jobs here and there with the money he saved. Eventually, he ended up in the UK. Entering the magical side of it, he discovered a job listing for a groundskeeper in a magical school -- Hogwarts -- and, having no better option, decided to go for it.

There really isn’t much to say about Esther and Nelson. They met in Gallaudet, when Nelson showed Esther around one Open Day. Both coming from Deaf families, they connected at one and became fast friends. When Esther joined Gallaudet, the two continued their friendship -- which eventually blossomed into something more -- and started dating a few years later. They got married soon after Esther’s graduation and moved to Rochester, where a large community of Deaf people also resided.

Soon, they had their first child -- Kara, who was, to their surprise, hearing.

A couple years later, they gave birth to Luca, who, like them, was also Deaf.
