Zane Richard Wakefield
______________________________________________________________________________________

------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION
------------------------------------------------------------

    FULL NAME: Zane Richard Wakefield

    NICKNAMES: N/A

    AGE: 16

    ALLEGIANCE: Not Sure Yet (Leaning towards being a spy for the "light" side against the "dark")

    HOGWARTS HOUSE: Slytherin, Ravenclaw

    CLASSES: Potions, Transfiguration

    WAND: Ash, unicorn hair, 12 inches and 3/4, slightly pliable.

    PLAY BY: William Moseley



------------------------------------------------------------
APPEARANCE
------------------------------------------------------------

    HAIR COLOUR: Blonde

    EYE COLOUR: Blue-grey

    COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: Tall

    BODY BUILD: Built, but not overly.

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Zane is rather tall for his age, and muscled - though he doesn't spend loads of time working on it. He'll work out now and then, but isn't too obsessed with it. Overall, he's quite fit (in the slang sense, and the body health sense). His blonde hair is cut short always. He's got blue-grey eyes, and light skin that tends to tan rather than burn. He's got a few freckles here and there, including on his neck (see picture). He is almost always dressed up somewhat - not talking your full suit wearing type of guy, at least not on usual days, but never looks a mess. He likes dressy-looking shoes over sneakers, and polos over tshirts. He would never wear a hoodie - instead preferring one of the more dressy jackets. He has a series of smiles (some saved for certain people he doesn't consider to be too annoying to handle. He's got your usual smirk, a joking sneer, and some people may end up getting his actual smile, while some girls may get his lopsided grin if he likes them enough)



------------------------------------------------------------
PERSONALITY
------------------------------------------------------------


    STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES:
    Strengths:
    1. He's got a sharp tongue which he isn't afraid to dish out to anyone who gets on his bad side
    2. Zane can stop people with a glare, and see through people pretty easily.
    3. He's intelligent, so it makes school work not a big deal for him.
    4. He's good at memorizing things and thinking through problems quickly
    5. It really takes quite a bit to make him angry at someone/ to get on his bad side, because he's good at hiding his emotions. (aka, he's closed off to most people)

    Weaknesses:
    1. People who aren't intimidated by him unnerve him. Especially girls.
    2. He sometimes get lost in thought when he's concerned/anxious/worried about something
    3. Impulsive and Reckless when he's angry
    4. Expressing Emotions
    5. If he's truly friends with someone, he's extremely protective, which sometimes gets him into trouble.

    LIKES & DISLIKES:
    Likes:
    1. Quidditch
    2. Learning new things
    3. Pushing himself and his friends to succeed
    4. Being outdoors
    5. His Sister Brianna
    6. Writing

    Dislikes:
    1. Overly Dramatic people (especially girls)
    2. Liars/Pretenders/Try-Hards
    3. Failure
    4. Being Bored
    5. Bad Weather (Rainy days, snow storms)
    6. The rest of his family besides Brianna

    GOALS:
    1. Secure a position in the Ministry after Hogwarts
    2. To get over his family issues and to the right thing sometimes
    3. Reunite his family somehow

    HABITS & QUIRKS:
    Habits:
    1. Flying when he's upset
    2. He writes to his sister about anything and everything just to have something to send her
    3. Ignoring problems that are staring him in the face just to not have to get upset or deal with them.

    Quirks:
    1. Pinches the bridge of his nose when he's frustrated
    2. Rubs the back of his neck when he's feeling awkward (not too often. But it does happen)

    BOGGART: His father will ruin his plans of going to work at the Ministry

    PATRONUS: The times he took Brianna out to get away from their family and to keep her happy.

    DEMENTOR: The day his parents realized Brianna is a squib (see history)

    VERITASERUM: If he's really into a girl, he'd do just about anything (including using his hidden talent of singing, though he wouldn't show it to just anyone)

    MIRROR OF ERISED: To prove that he's not totally a bad guy

    PERSONALITY: Because of his family problems, he's really closed off, but it takes a lot to get him angry. He can handle most people by either ignoring the problem, or closing off his emotions. Once someone has done something to seriously make him angry, he's not afraid to be an arse. He has brief moments of reprieve which he actually enjoys. Usually, if he's frustrated, he'd go flying to just feel free of it for a bit. He doesn't mention his family unless he trusts someone with everything.
    When it comes to people he actually gets along with or likes, he's actually very personable. But it takes a lot to get through his shell and into the more pleasant interior.
    He can be a bit of a know-it-all in certain subjects, and tries his best in all of them. He has to do well if he's going to get that job at the Ministry on his own. He wouldn't ever ask his father for help, not that his father would be pleased with his career choice.

------------------------------------------------------------
CHARACTER HISTORY
------------------------------------------------------------


    Early Years: Zane was born into the Wakefield family as the eldest son of a couple of wizards who were very serious about him not being a fan of Muggles or the like. Zane honestly didn't care where a person came from. Especially after Brianna was born, and ended up a squib. Zane wondered for a while if his mum had had an affair or something, since he thought it odd that two wizards would have a child who couldn't do magic. He, of course, never asked. His parents were embarrassed of her (for obvious reasons if you knew them). Zane quickly started to be unable to stand any of his relatives who tried to hide her from everyone. She's only two years behind him, but attends a boarding school in Scotland, and she's almost never spoken about. The day his parents found out she was a squib, her father spoke of "getting rid of her" which made Zane furious, and he decided to be her protector and rarely left her alone.

    Hogwarts Years: When Zane went to Hogwarts, he made sure Brianna went off to school as well, and, knowing it would drive his parents crazy, Zane told them he'd find a Muggle to marry if they ever hurt her. Not exactly a low blow in his opinion, but he knew they would go mental over it. If he found someone he wanted to marry, by Merlin he'd do it regardless of what they thought.
    Over the years, he began to realize that his goal in life had nothing to do with the Dark Wizards. Rather, he wants to work at the Ministry

    Adulthood: N/A




------------------------------------------------------------
BEHIND THE CHARACTER
------------------------------------------------------------


    ALSO KNOWN AS: Jon

    RP EXPERIENCE: 4 years

    HOW YOU FOUND US: A friend used to be on this site and mentioned it.

    MAIN CHARACTER: Zane

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: To roleplay as Zane

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:
    Zane's parents had been waiting for ages to see if Brianna would show any signs of being a witch. She was turning six, and they hadn't noticed anything. His mum would always say things like, "Well, perhaps we just missed them. Maybe she was with Zane, or alone when it happened." They would ask Zane, but he'd never seen anything either. He, being only eight, didn't think it was too big of a deal. He didn't see the point. Then again, he'd never heard the word for what his sister was before. So when they decided to provoke a reaction from her, and she just got angry instead of setting loose untamed magic, they knew their thoughts were accurate.

    "We.. We'll just have to get rid of her." Zane heard his father say, reaching for his wand.

    "No!" Zane shouted, confused and scared for his sister, throwing himself in front of her. He held her to him with one arm and went for his wand with the other. He knew he wasn't able to use magic, but he had to do something. "You can't do anything to her without hurting me, too." He threatened, though he wasn't even sure it would mean anything to them.

    His father had glared at him furiously, and just pulled out his wand anyways. Zane braced himself to be struck with some dark spell, but his mum had taken the wand with a disarming spell. "No, Richard. You won't hurt him."

    They way she said 'him' instead of 'them' just made Zane angrier. He couldn't believe he was thinking it in the first place, but Zane was pretty sure he was starting to hate his parents. From that day, Zane moved Brianna to the room adjoining his so he would know if anything was happening to her. She seemed grateful, and eventually his parents just started hiding her from people instead of trying to harm her. Zane figured they were going to get her married off and pretend she hadn't existed. She was never in pictures with them, or mentioned to his parents' friends. He knew he wouldn't be able to leave her there while he went off to school. So she would have to leave the same year he did.

Zane,

First, welcome to PA! Just a question about your app. I can see where it would be sort of a toss up between Slytherin and Ravenclaw. But--if you are thinking you might want him to lean more away from dark arts, etc., and you don't mention much about him placing much value on tradition and blood purity, etc., he seems like he might be a better fit into Ravenclaw unless you really want him to be a Slytherin. If you want him to be a Slytherin for some particular reason, then I suggest you might "polish" him a bit or decide that he's going to have a very tough time fitting into Slytherin house.

Thoughts?

K.

It was funny - as I wrote him, Zane sort of changed on me xD In my head he was supposed to turn out as a Slytherin. But I think it would be better if he was just a very cut off Ravenclaw who was expected to be Slytherin but wasn't.

I actually think that would work very well for him. I've had apps that sorta went like that. I originally saw them as one way, but the character almost seemed to frame themselves once I got started. Sometimes that works well. In this case, I think it will be interesting to see what you end up doing with him (or, rather, what you end up allowing him to do) once you start writing with him.

At any rate, accepted and sorted into Ravenclaw.
