Name: Augustus Rookwood
Age: 39 Occupation: Fugitive
Augustus Rookwood was born into the shadow of privilege. His father had hoped that his marriage would result in social and economic mobility upward, but the Rosier heiress who met him at the altar was quiet, unhappy, and only fulfilling a duty that her older sisters had refused. Their marriage was an unhappy one, and Augustus and his sister Octavia were born from duty rather than love. Their father spent most of his time gambling away what little fortune they had in the hopes of rising socially, whereas their mother focused on raising their children in the proper Pureblood fashion, with an emphasis on blood purity.
When he attended Hogwarts, Augustus was Sorted into Ravenclaw, where he eventually met Alecto Carrow, a Housemate two years his junior. It was Alecto’s influence that led him to look into Voldemort’s cause, and he joined the Death Eaters along with the Carrow siblings not long after. He was eventually arrested, when he was betrayed by Igor Karkaroff, after years of successful and uninterrupted spying in the Department of Mysteries. He spent fifteen years in Azkaban, and when he broke out in 1996, was reunited with the Carrows as they prepared for Voldemort’s return to power.
Augustus’ freedom was short-lived, however, as he was forced to go on the run after the Battle of Hogwarts and Voldemort’s defeat. Never spending more than a few weeks in any city, it was by mere chance that he recently learned of the Carrows’ death, and heard the whispers that Alecto was alive and following in the Dark Lord’s footsteps, having learned from his mistakes. Upon hearing this, he returned to Britain almost immediately, searching Alecto out to work with her. He’s lost his friends and family once and has no plans of doing it again; besides, it just wouldn’t be fair for one woman to have all that power to herself.

Name: Katerina Kusmenov
Age: 24 Occupation: Wandmaker
Katerina Kusmenov was born in Zagreb, Croatia, five months after her father’s death. Her mother, already worn thin by the loss of her husband, the birth of her baby girl, and caring for her four-year-old son Alexei, left Katerina in the care of her grandfather, widely renowned wandmaker Mykew Gregorovitch. Gregorovitch adored his granddaughter and doted on her, moving her to live with him in Dresden, Germany, and raising her on his own. From a young age, Katerina showed an incredible gift for wandmaking, and Gregorovitch promised that she would someday take over his shop when he retired.
When Katerina was twelve years old she began her education at Durmstrang Institute, where she was reunited with her brother Alexei. However, the siblings had little in common besides shared blood; where Katerina was wholly focused on wandmaking, and focused her studies on magical theory and wandlore in the hopes of being a successful heir to the family business, Alexei showed an interest in the Dark Arts, and developed a fascination with studying Voldemort’s reign. When Katerina graduated eight years later, and at the top of her class, Voldemort had returned, Alexei had left for England to join the Death Eaters, and Gregorovitch was preparing to turn over ownership of his shop to his granddaughter.
Katerina never got that opportunity to take ownership. Within weeks of her graduation, her grandfather had gone on the run from Voldemort, and though Katerina tried to run things in his absence, she closed the shop down when he was found dead. During the war, she joined a resistance effort dedicated to moving Muggleborns to safety, and following the war’s end, hunted down her brother to find out what he’d known about their grandfather’s death. She comes to England now to fill the vacuum left by Ollivander’s death, and now runs Gregorovitch Wands in Knockturn Alley. She’s heard rumors of the rise of a former Death Eater thought dead, and plans on getting whatever revenge she can for her grandfather’s death, no matter the cost.

Arielle D’Arque ● 17 ● Seventh Year ● Half Blood ● Open
“Love’s just something you hear about in stories.”
Say hello to Arielle D’Arque.
While there are plenty of partnerships between the magical and Muggle world which are successful, there are equally as many that don’t work. Arielle’s parents’ marriage was one of them. Her mother was a witch and her father was a Muggle; he had a hard time coming to terms with learning the truth after Arielle’s mother wasn’t entirely truthful with him from the beginning, and though they tried to work things out, he left, and Arielle and her mother packed up from their home in Marseilles to move to England, where Arielle’s mother took a position with the Ministry of Magic and Arielle began attending Hogwarts. She hasn’t seen her father since and isn’t sure whether to resent or mourn that loss; either way, she’s had to balance losing her father with growing up and wishing he was around.
Arielle is a romantic, fond of love stories and faery tales that prove that love does exist and can, in fact, conquer all, though she’s not sure she believes it just yet. Though she’s sweet and is easily able to make friends, she tends to keep to herself; she’s not sure just how much is worth the risk when it comes to loving someone, because they can easily leave you. She’s not sure who, exactly, she can trust, though she has a handful of close friends in her House and year. Arielle wants to know what it means to be needed, and she’s not sure who she can trust, or if that will ever happen.
