AGE: 22

ALLEGIANCE: Movement for Muggle & Wizard Integration

HOGWARTS HOUSE: Ravenclaw

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

HAIR COLOUR: Dark brown, almost black

EYE COLOUR: Deep blue

COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: Tall

BODY BUILD: athletic, swimmer's build

GENERAL APPEARANCE:

Watching Monroe puts one in mind of a waterbird. His movements are awkward and precise, almost as though he's thought them out in advance, which may very well be the case. However this impression can be deceptive, since at times he can also be quite graceful, such as when he turns with the poise of a ballerina to flick his wand in your direction and cast a spell with uncanny precision.

Like all his siblings, Monroe's hair is dark and his eyes a striking blue. Unlike the others, his appearance is cultivated to the highest standards at all times.



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


TRAITS:

Responsible
Friendly
Intelligent
Overprotective
Manipulative
Secretive

LIKES & DISLIKES:

Being in control
Being there when someone needs support
Knowing everyone else's business

Angst
Ingrates
Arrogance

GOALS:

To make all the right connections

HABITS & QUIRKS:

Monroe has an outstanding memory for names and faces, complimented by his knowledge that people like to be acknowledged.  He only needs to be introduced once to a person to remember exactly who they are.

BOGGART: Something unfortunate happening to any of his siblings.

PATRONUS: Taking Lusk to buy her wand

DEMENTOR: Any of the times the Death Eaters invaded school property

VERITASERUM: Monroe isn't as pleasant as he may seem

MIRROR OF ERISED: To become Minister for Magic.

PERSONALITY:

Monroe is the cool, calm and collected type. Monroe is the person you turn to in a crisis. If he doesn't know what to do, he knows the person who does.

In fact, Monroe Ashcroft seems to know everyone. He's best friends with muggleborn and pureblood alike; he even knows every first year by name. However, strangely for someone so well known, not many people seem to know much about him. Most of what people know about Monroe comes in the form of speculation and rumours about his notorious family.

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

EARLY YEARS:

Due to the semi-illegal nature of their offspring's origins and the fact that they always viewed them more as experiments than people, the Lionel and Frances Ashcroft never had much time for their children.

Monroe and his siblings grew up in the draughty corridors of Connistone Hall, isolated from the rest of society apart from a few nannies to guard them.  In an attempt to get them some kind of education before Hogwarts started, they occasionally went on outings to museums or galleries, but for the most part, Monroe's learning was dictated only by his interests.

HOGWARTS YEARS:

Throughout his time at Hogwarts, Monroe made sure to keep his head down and his nose clean. Destrey and Shylock quickly gained themselves a reputation for wildness that made things difficult enough for everyone, and although he knew they wouldn't thank him for it, he felt a family obligation to look out for them. And at times, to look out for the people their actions affected.

Monroe had an impeccable academic record while at Hogwarts and was tutored in occlumency during his final year.  

ADULTHOOD:

After graduation, Monroe obtained an internship with the Department of Magical Beasts and Beings.  He was then promoted to Magical Creatures Specialist a year later, where his job is supposed to be overseeing the registration of sentient magical creatures, but in reality he spends most of his time attempting to modify requirements and gain them extra rights.

Selwyn, I read the app, and I read the old app for Monroe. I have no issue w/ you bringing him back. I liked him before. And I have no problem with you maturing him.

However, what doesn't work in this app is the "unerring precision" of his wandwork at his relatively young age.

Nor can we accept the whole cloning business of him and his sibs. I realize there's been some fiddling with that concept in fanfic, but its too AU for this site.

Please let us know when you're ready for us to read it again.

k.

I can fix the unerring precision, although that was always in his app and it's not meant to be literal.

I'm wondering what's too AU about the cloning thing?  The Ashcrofts were always the product of somatic cell nuclear transfer.  It's woven into their entire backstory.

Actually, what if I just made them a multiple birth that had been lab frozen as embryos?

it would be much easier to deal with in the scheme of how Rowlings set up the magical world if you did the frozen embryos thing.

I think those fixes would be workable.
