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

HAIR COLOUR: Black

EYE COLOUR: Amber

COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: 6’1

BODY BUILD: slender

GENERAL APPEARANCE:
Although his appearance suggests that Vincent may once have been quite attractive, there is nothing handsome about his features now. He has a rather long face, with sunken, narrow eyes which seem to stare at you for just a little too long. You can see the effects of his sickness quite easily on his face – the skin is deathly pale, as if the life has been drained out of it. Despite the less than attractive appearance, Vincent keeps himself well groomed, keeping his hair short and well brushed, and almost always wearing similar neat black robes. Vincent is not often found wearing muggle clothes, but he is able to blend in quite easily. He is quite tall, but often appears shorter than he really is due to his posture.

GOALS: To achieve absolute power in the Ministry of Magic, and to then use his power to rid the Wizarding World of old prejudices and social inequality.
To find some way to lengthen his life and perhaps prevent death permanently

HABITS AND QUIRKS:
Due to his sickness, Vincent often has to carry around a flask filled with an antidote to decrease the pain and the frequency of the coughing fits.
FACTS and SKILLS:
Since birth Vincent has been suffering from a rare disease seen only in people of magic. Called “maledictus vita” the disease slowly breaks down the body, causing enormous pain, coughing fits and physical fragility. It has no cure, and people born with the disease rarely live past 40. One ‘positive’ effect of the disease is an increase in magical aptitude.

Vincent is a master in alchemy, a rare skill few in the Wizarding world possess. He has spent a vast amount of time researching the subject, primarily to find a cure for his sickness or a way to live longer. Though he was unsuccessful, he does have almost unparalleled knowledge of the subject.

Vincent is very good at dark magic. It is, after all, one of the most abstract of all magical schools and there isn’t much literature about it. Vincent dug deep to find all the knowledge he has of dark magic, though he did not stumble upon horcruxes. If he had, he would have probably attempted to make one.

Vincent is very confused about his sexuality. He has very little experience, and may possibly be asexual/nonsexual.

BOGGART: To become poor, powerless and hungry

PATRONUS: Becoming an auror or some memory with his brother.

DEMENTOR: Being beaten up by several kids at muggle school, and being completely powerless to help them. Eventually his brother had to step in to save him from getting severely injured.

VERITASERUM: Vincent later tracked down those muggle boys after graduating and extracted revenge, although he didn’t kill them. He has never been connected to this incident.

MIRROR OF ERISED: Same as his goal

PERSONALITY:

Manipulative, cunning, cynical sly and dangerous, Vincent doesn't have to think twice about hurting or using others to achieve his own goals, although he has never enjoyed either act. Ambitious and determined, Vincent dreams of one thing in particular - power and control over others. However, this goal is not as damnable as it sounds. Truthfully, Vincent merely seeks power in order to create a better world. Contrary to his nature, Vincent holds a soft spot for animals, disadvantaged people and house elves. He seeks power to rid the world of all these injustices, but by past experience it is clear that Vincent is not incorruptible. In fact, the poor power he attains, the crueler he becomes.

Vincent is very introverted. He mostly keeps to himself, and for some reason people just rarely seem to approach him. Almost as if they can tell there is something off about him. And so Vincent has hardly ever had a friend his whole life, though that fact doesn’t bother him much.

Vincent is very bitter and resentful towards his past, his physical frailty and people who treat their inferiors poorly. This means the rich, the people in power and even death eaters. However, he is also resentful towards muggles, mainly due to his experiences with them in the past. Extremely weak compared to most people physically, Vincent almost totally relies on his magic (as well as wits) to achieve his goals. For him, magic was something that set him apart, made him different and better than his stronger, better looking brother. Due to this he always tries to make himself even better at magic, using and mastering every type of magic possible.

Vincent has a strict code of conduct that he always abides to, and due to this code he can sometimes be seen taking honorable decisions. For example, he places an extremely high value on debt. If someone has shown him kindness or helped him in any way, Vincent will return the favor no matter what price. He also hates to kill, and thus avoids the use of the killing curse.

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

EARLY YEARS:
Vincent Majere grew up in a small town in Scotland. The town was quite poor, and Vincent’s family even more so. They lived someway outside the village, in a small house. His father was a lumberjack and a carpenter. His mother was a half-blood, though Vincent never saw her do magic. The only time she showed any magical ability was in the trance-like states she would rarely go in, when she uttered prophecies in a strange voice. Though that happened only twice, the memories of those occasions still haunt Vincent.

Vincent was a very frail child, and the doctors were originally certain that he was going to die. His mother too, was very sick and passed away when Vincent was just seven. Since his mother was mostly at work, Vincent was mainly taken care of by his sister, though he hasn’t seen her since she graduated Hogwarts. At school, Vincent was often bullied by other students due to his fragility and isolated nature. He often relied on his twin brother, who was nearly the opposite of Vincent, for support here.

Though he showed signs of magic shortly after turning seven, Vincent was not aware what was really happening to him and was quite scared at first. However, soon enough he learnt to control the magic to some degree. Overall, Vincent’s early life was miserable and of course he accepted the offer to go to Hogwarts when he turned eleven.

HOGWARTS YEARS:
Vincent was sorted into ravenclaw due to above average intellect. At first, he had hoped that he would be able to fit in and make friends in Hogwarts. But even here, he found himself to be alone as ever. The bullying continued as well, as throughout the first few years, Vincent was far more talented than his peers and got better marks. This academic success decreased somewhat as he approached OWL year, as Vincent began to look towards different magical schools than the ones taught. He achieved a brief bit of popularity after mastering some curses and jinxes, which he routinely used on others. This gave Vincent some sort of power and control at Hogwarts, and it was the first incidence that displayed just how much he abused power.

He took NEWTs in nine subjects, which turned out to be a bit too hectic. His grades were above-average, but nothing exceptional. 4 outstandings, 3 Exceeds Expectations and 2 Acceptables.


ADULTHOOD:
Clever, ambitious and magically talented, Vincent was always destined to have a long and fruitful career after graduation. At first, he was quite successful. He passed his auror test at the age of twenty, and by twenty six had become the head of the auror division. Under orders by the then Minister Dae Diggory, he used the aurors to take control of Hogwarts from Kingsley Shacklebolt, and appointed himself as High Inquisitor of the school. His stern nature and the fact that he had taken over in what was essentially a coup made him unpopular among both the students and the teachers.

Of course, Vincent’s ultimate goal was not to be head inquisitor, so around the same time he joined the Death Eaters, while acting as an informant for the Order of the Phoenix. This complex chess game worked out well at first. The Order removed Dae Diggory and planned to install Vincent as the new minister. Unfortunately, Kingsley Shacklebolt intervened and though Vincent was able to defeat, and apparently kill, him in a duel, this action made him an enemy of the Order who promptly used their power to remove him from Hogwarts and strip him of all ministry positions.

Four years later, Vincent’s career appears to be at an end and his reputation ruined. But he remains as ambitious as ever.

Vincent!

Awesome! I've been wanting to see Vincent back on the boards forever!

You will have to do a thread with Vincent and Khaat at some point.

Read your app. Loved getting more backstory on Vincent than I knew previously. It looks great.
