[In this section, please don’t just write one or two words. Explain their likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, positive & negative traits in detail wherever possible; this is for people to get a decent idea of who your character is and what they are like, so please don’t just randomly list things. Also, three is the minimum, please don't be afraid to list more, there will never be limitations to detail on this site!]

Likes: (3 minimum)
  -Tea (especially Kenyan masala chai)
  -Books (of all kinds)
  -Traveling (anywhere and everywhere--he rarely settles)
  -Peace and quiet (he enjoys the simple pleasures of life--relaxing by himself at the end of the day, with a cup of tea and a good book)
  -Meeting people/interesting conversations (he loves to learn about people and their backgrounds)
  -Learning new things (he has studied everything under the sun during his travels--he knows several languages, and has mastered many obscure talents, both magical and non-magical)

Dislikes: (3 minimum)
  -Bullies (he had to deal with his fair share of them growing up, and he will not hesitate to give them what they deserve)
  -Closed-mindedness (he finds it hard to comprehend people who willfully refuse knowledge)
  -British food (he prefers to actually taste his food)
  -Arbitrary rules/restrictions (he believes there should be a good reason for any rules that are made, and has always been good at finding loopholes in the rules he doesn't agree with)
  -Politics (he finds politicians frustrating, and their supporters even more so--whenever he thinks about politics it just makes him angry, so he stays away if he can)

Strengths: (3 minimum)
  -Memory (excellent, possibly photographic)
  -Wandless magic (learned on his travels in Africa)
  -A lot of random skills and knowledge (picked up from all sorts of people in many different places)

  -Cooking (though he doesn't do it often)

Weaknesses: (3 minimum)
  -Intelligent/interesting/attractive men (he's always open to meeting new people, and occasionally he'll find himself rather enamoured, and he's learned to just accept these emotions)
  -Dabbling (while he's tried his hand at many, many things, he's only really taken the time to master a select few of them)
  -Distractions (he is easily distracted, and his mind will often jump from topic to topic)
  -A good book (he'll often become completely immersed in his reading, and may forget the outside world)
  -The finer things in life (good food, good wine, snazzy clothes--his tastes can be rather expensive at times, so he has to remind himself not to indulge too much)

Positive traits: (3 minimum)
  -Adaptable (wherever he goes, he finds that he can fit in just fine--he has a very large comfort zone)
  -Creative (he's good at thinking his way around problems)
  -Adventurous (he loves trying new things and meeting new people)
  -Quick learner (he can pick up most skills and concepts fairly quickly due to his good memory and desire to learn)

Negative traits: (3 minimum)
  -Overly-analytical (at times he finds himself thinking too hard about things of little significance)
  -Perfectionistic (in such a way that he is often too hard on himself)
  -Cynical (he does not have high hopes for the world politically, and does not usually trust people to make good decisions)
  -Private (he is slow to trust people with his inner thoughts and emotions, and would rather listen to others than talk about himself)

[Please write at least 2 detailed paragraphs of your character's general history. This can entail anything from their upbringing, school years and their present. The paragraphs don’t have to be long, but they do need to include details, so that people can get to know your character more.]

Grayson grew up in London with his father, a wizard, and his mother, a muggle. His father had been of high standing, until he had married a muggle woman and apparently disgraced his family. However, despite his loss of respect among certain circles, he remained relatively wealthy, and Grayson grew up used to the idea of being able to afford things. There were no secrets in his household, and he'd known about wizardry from an early age. When he was eleven, he went to Hogwarts and was sorted into Slytherin.

He got excellent grades in school, and was near the top of his class when he graduated. He'd gone to school immediately following the Second Wizarding War, so Hogwarts was in the process of rebuilding at the time. There was a new emphasis on house unity and dismantling blood purism, but it was far from a perfect system. Some of his non-Slytherin classmates bullied him for being in Slytherin, while some of his Slytherin classmates bullied him for having a muggle mother. All in all, it left him feeling like he fit in everywhere and nowhere. When he graduated, he decided to leave the country entirely.

He spent the next fifteen years traveling the world. He spent a considerable amount of time in Africa, studying wandless magic at Uagadou, and then went to India, Nepal, and China for a time, before returning to the United Kingdom by way of Italy, Spain, and France. Soon after his return, his father grew very ill, and died a few months later. This prompted Grayson to stay close by, in order to take care of his mother and keep her company. He settled down in a small, neat cottage in Ireland, which he filled with artifacts and souvenirs from his travels. After a little while, he decided to return to Hogwarts, and applied for the librarian position--he was rather attracted to the idea of sitting in a large, quiet room, surrounded by books.

   Name: Annette Keller Hughes
   Age: 58
   Living or Deceased: Living
   Blood type or Species: Muggle
   Occupation: Nurse

   Name: Brennan Lionel Hughes
   Age: 57 (at death), 59 (if living)
   Living or Deceased: Deceased
   Blood type or Species: Pureblood
   Occupation: Ministry of Magic: Department of International Magical Cooperation

[Please write at least one paragraph on your character's family history. This can include details about how their parents met, their views on the world, their money status, and any other things you find necessary. In situations where characters are orphans, you can write how this came about, be it death of parents or whatever other reasons. Keep in mind that this is to shape your character more, since family has a huge impact on who one is.]

Brennan Hughes was the third son of a wealthy pureblood family. He never particularly cared for such things, but he grew up in high-society and was expected to act in a certain way (i.e. marry a respectable young witch). Instead, he found himself increasingly fascinated with the muggle world. Due to his status, he was secured a position at the Ministry almost immediately after graduating Hogwarts, and he worked in the DIMC, trying to get the whole magical world to work together and agree on something. He found this job rather dull, and so he took up a hobby on the side: studying muggle artifacts.

He eventually found himself in a bit of a scrape after trying to teach himself to drive a muggle car. He ended up in a muggle hospital, where he laid eyes on the soon-to-be love of his life: a gorgeous muggle nurse named Annette Keller. Despite his family's threats to disown him, he continued a relationship with her for several years, and they eventually got married. His family had minimal contact with him after that, but he retained his vault at Gringotts, and kept the wealth he'd gotten from his parents. Brennan made sure to be honest with Annette about his wizardry, and it never posed a problem to their relationship.
