Name: Cho Chang
Age: 22 Occupation: Journalist

“Pretty girls who cry often aren’t taken seriously; I’m very aware of that.”

Cho Chang was born surrounded by talent and love. Her mother was the Beater for the Scottish National Team, and her father a columnist for the Daily Prophet; they met one World Cup and fell quickly in love, marrying soon after. Their daughter followed quickly, and Cho’s first few years were spent staying in one place, with both parents home and looking after her. When she was three years old her mother returned to her team, and two years later her father returned to work as well, her grandmother moving in to help take care of her. She attended Muggle primary school at her grandmother’s insistence, taking dance lessons and joining a local football team as well. Going to Hogwarts proved somewhat difficult for Cho, who was anxious at the idea of leaving her grandmother, but she went all the same, promising to write frequently. 

She was Sorted into Ravenclaw, where she met her best friend, Marietta Edgecombe, and the two were inseparable. Cho’s hard work at primary school put her at an advantage, as she was used to classroom settings and the social politics of her classmates. She proved herself cheerful, friendly, and warm, an all-around easy person to get along with, and quickly became popular, though she was a very emotional young woman, and very aware of how others perceived her as a result. She joined the Ravenclaw Quidditch team in her third year as Seeker, increasing her popularity and putting her dance and sports training to good use. 

Cho’s vivacity and kindness quickly gained attention from other students. In her fifth year, she began a relationship with Cedric Diggory, and his death hit her hard enough that she began to withdraw, mocked by her classmates for the heavy toll it took on her. A year later, she joined Dumbledore’s Army against her parents’ wishes, and began a relationship with Harry Potter that fizzled out within months. She dated on and off after that, focusing instead on her schoolwork and the Quidditch team, and graduated with excellent marks. She returned to Hogwarts to fight against the Death Eaters in the Battle of Hogwarts, and soon after got a job at Witch Weekly as a columnist and a flat with Marietta. Now, she’s in a prime position to learn all manner of secrets, and she’s growing suspicious that there might be more truth in this gossip than lies.

Name: Dean Thomas
Age: 21 Occupation: Artist

“I’m not just gonna forget where I come from because it’s easier that way.”

Dean Thomas was born Dean Logan to a schoolteacher mother and a father who quickly skipped town. Growing up with a single mother for the first several years of his life, Dean developed a strong appreciation for hard work and effort, and an unshaking respect for all the women around him. He and his mother remained close throughout his childhood, and when she remarried, he took his stepfather’s surname only when he was sure that his mother had as well. He adored his three younger half-siblings, as well as his stepfather, and despite wondering about his biological father, had an unshakable relationship with his family. When he received his Hogwarts letter, he and his mother were both shocked, and though he considered staying home and near his brothers and sister, the adventure was just too great to ignore, and he left with his family’s blessing.

The moment the Sorting Hat touched Dean’s head he was Sorted into Gryffindor, where he developed a close friendship with his roommate, Seamus Finnigan. The two were near inseparable from the start, and only grew closer with each passing year. Dean brought with him his love for art and for sports, and though he found Quidditch difficult to understand at first, he eventually became an incredibly talented player himself. He continued to foster his love for art throughout school, drawing and sketching on any flat surface he could and making banners for clubs and teams. Dean was forced to leave school and go on the run in his seventh year, being unable to prove any wizarding blood in his lineage, but he was taken prisoner in Malfoy manor; after escaping, he returned to Hogwarts, fighting in the final Battle alongside his best friend. 

Dean returned to Hogwarts to complete his education, and it was during a detention his final year that he saw his biological father’s name listed in an old record of students from forty years before. It wasn’t hard to uncover the truth from there—that Dean Logan’s father had been a member of the Order of the Phoenix who fought against Voldemort and was killed by the Carrow siblings. After graduating, Dean focused on his art, always keeping an eye out for any hint of the Carrows, and now that he’s heard rumors of Alecto’s return, it might be time to raise a little hell.

Name: Sharon Rooney
Age: 20 Occupation: Dancer

“I spent all my time trying to fit in with people who didn’t want me. I’m not going to do it again.”

Millicent Bulstrode was born to a fallen family. The Bulstrode wealth was long gone, and generation after generation sought to regain their lost wealth and social clout. Millicent was pressured time and time again to be perfect, never once to step out of line, and to make her family proud. Growing up is hard as it is, but it was even harder with so much pressure—and the secret she carried with her for years. Her greatest, and only, comfort as a child was dancing. When she received her Hogwarts letter, her parents sent her off to school with the instructions to befriend anyone and everyone who could prove to be important, and she was Sorted into Slytherin, where she hoped she might be able to kickstart her social climb.

First year was difficult. Millicent was always just on the outside, mocked for any and every insecurity her classmates could find. If she’d hoped to find a reprieve among other Houses, she was wrong; the Slytherins, at least, were loyal to her because she was one of theirs. Her second year became significantly easier when she and Blaise Zabini struck a surprising friendship; his influence brought her into the fold of the other Slytherins, though she was always just outside the inner sanctum. Her introduction to Pansy Parkinson made it impossible for Millicent to deny how she felt—about her classmate, about girls in general, and about herself.

Quiet and reserved, Millicent forced herself to remain withdrawn for several years, until she came out as a lesbian to her closest friends. Though Pansy never reciprocated Millicent’s feelings, Millicent could never quite shake the other girl; despite the relief she felt in coming out, her feelings for Pansy still weighed on her. She started dancing again after this, and the return to her first passion was sweet. During the war, she kept her head down as much as possible, afraid of drawing attention to herself; she chose not to fight in the Battle, instead watching over younger students. She didn’t return to Hogwarts to finish her education, instead moving in with her grandparents in Wales and beginning a theater and dance program there. Now, back in London to start her career and reunited with old friends, Millicent is quickly realizing just how much she’s missed… and her parents are more than willing to use her to get back into Alecto Carrow’s good graces, so long as the rewards are worth it.

Name: Neville Longbottom
Age: 20 Occupation: Auror

“He’s not alone! He’s still got me!”

Neville Longbottom was born to Frank and Alice Longbottom, a pair of Aurors and members of the Order of the Phoenix who had no way of knowing that their son was singled in a prophecy, along with another boy born only a day later. Though Harry was the one marked as Voldemort’s equal, Neville didn’t escape the prophecy unscathed: both his parents were attacked and tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange. His parents were admitted to St. Mungo’s, where they’ve been since the attack and torture, and Neville was raised by his grandmother. Nervous, shy, and clumsy, he had a hard time with magic as a child, preferring instead to spend his time with his pets or his plants—something which led his family to fear he was a Squib.

When he got his Hogwarts letter, his family let out a collective sigh of relief, and he was sorted into Gryffindor, much to his own surprise. As time passed he was targeted more and more by bullies both from his year and other years, and even professors—especially Snape. At the end of his first year he was Petrified after trying to stop Harry, Ron, and Hermione from sneaking out; it didn’t strike him as a particularly brave thing to do, but it did give Neville pause, and for the first time he started to wonder if he was where he belonged. Neville was among the first to believe Harry when he brought news of Voldemort’s return, and was an integral part of Dumbledore’s Army and one of the only people to respond when Harry called for help in the Department of Mysteries. 

Neville helped restart Dumbledore’s Army in his seventh year, while Harry, Ron, and Hermione went in search of the Horcruxes. He fought in the Battle of Hogwarts beside his friends, proving him self every inch his parents’ son. Neville returned to Hogwarts to finish his education following the Second Wizarding War, and immediately after graduation, joined the Auror Department with his friend Harry Potter. He’s heard the rumors of Alecto Carrow’s return, and Neville Longbottom doesn’t back down from a fight.

ohthewar-rpg:

Hello, darlings! Quick mod question:

I’ve gotten some requests to increase the maximum character number from five to six. These requests are all coming from very active writers, and while I’m happily taking this into consideration, I also want to make sure I bring this to the rest of the group, as well as any readers and lurkers we have.

With this change to the rules would come the following stipulations:

  • Writers may have no more than three characters from the same House.
  • In the case of three to four characters, at least one must be a different gender from the others; in the case of five to six characters, at least two must be a different gender from the others. This requirement can be filled with any genders, not just binary genders.
  • In the case of three or more characters, at least one must be nonwhite.
  • In the case of three or more characters, at least one must be working for or with another side or team. (For example, if all your characters are supporting Nex, and you have two or more characters, your next must be against Nex.)
  • No more than two characters can be related to one another.
  • Each character must be active regularly—at least once a week.

So drop me a message with your response, and any questions you have! I’ll run this for a week, and by 20th August I’ll have taken your answers into consideration and made a decision.
