KYLE DARREN BECKER
______________________________________________________________________________________

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

FULL NAME: Kyle Darren Becker

NICKNAMES: Beck

AGE: 25

ALLEGIANCE: Would like him to become involved with the Death Eaters please.

HOGWARTS HOUSE: Graduate of Slytherin House


WAND: Blackthorn, Thestral Hair Core, 11 and 1/4 inches, little flexibility.

PLAY BY: Kellan Lutz



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

HAIR COLOUR: Brown

EYE COLOUR:Blue

COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: 6'1, so tall.

BODY BUILD: 176 pounds, so a leanly muscled build.

GENERAL APPEARANCE: Obviously muscular, with short dirty blonde hair and usually goes with a little bit of stubble though occasionally will appear cleanshaven. Tends to wear jeans, tee shirts, and things that are popular in fashion because he does enjoy looking good for the ladies.



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


TRAITS: Tends to more cynical often, not many friends but does stick by the handful he has, very ambitious and hardworking, eager to move up in the auror ranks so he can help the death eaters from the inside. If you play dirty, he will happily play dirty back and most likely come out on top. Sarcastic sense of humor, and if he finds a reason to have a grudge on you he won't forget about it. Also has a temper you do not want to provoke, especially since he can lose control of his magic occasionally when it happens.

LIKES & DISLIKES: Enjoys sarcastic humor, seeing people get a downfall that they deserve, attention from the opposite sex, the Death Eaters,  getting in duels and testing his skills against others, dark magic, and is especially skilled with Transfiguration and Charms. Dislikes people who are carefree, cheesy romantic couples, Order of the Phoenix and those who side with them, not a big fan of crowds, and absolutely detests laziness and people who take life as a joke.

GOALS: Goal is to become a death eater, and to help take down the ministry, particularly the auror department, from the inside. Would also like to find a woman who he can enjoy having his way with on a regular basis. Also wants to perfect his use of piertotum locomotor and other tricky transfiguration and charms magic in addition to his dark arts prowess.

HABITS & QUIRKS:  Has the habit of focusing on one goal to the exclusion of all else. Nearly always has his hands in his pockets when he is able to get comfortable, and often crosses his arms elsewise. One of his quirks is he has a very detailed day to day schedule, and if he doesn't do everything gets very annoyed and upset about it. His schedule is what helps him order thoughts, plan whatever he's working on, and keep himself on a routine. If it falls apart so often, does he.

BOGGART: His biggest fear is that he will not live up to his father's standards. He drives himself extremely hard to attempt to live up to the family name. However, he often feels that he falls short and the boggart takes the shape of his father. Often he sees the creature starting to reach towards its pocket before dispelling it.

PATRONUS: His fondest memory was probably in his seventh year at Hogwarts, when he was finally able to learn how to levitate and direct multiple objects at once instead of just one. It takes intense focus, but granted him the ability to play nasty tricks on friends who were stunned by floating objects. The real trick was learning how to cast it nonverbally, and in particular his best memory was using it to levitate rocks around the black lake one day when a group of seventh year girls were trying to leave. They got spooked and their high pitched squealing delighted him, before he eventually let them go, using the opportunity to comfort a girl he was later able to date in his sixth year.

DEMENTOR: The worst memory he has was when one evening he burned the family's dinner. It was the first time he'd made a mistake, and thus the first night he went to bed without it. All that night he stayed up, stomach gurgling, and more than a few tears fell and stained his pillow. It wasn't so much the no dinner that had hurt him, but that his mom didn't even try to sneak him any food. That she just went along with what his father decided. Kyle realized then that he would forever be alone, and had to rely on himself above all others.

VERITASERUM: Kyle's biggest secret is actually where he got the drive to be a Death Eater from. There was a boy three years older than him in school, Shawn Travers (an NPC I will bring in now and then),  who tried to recruit a few of the younger Slytherins and start teaching them dark magic. Kyle was one of the few who leaped at the opportunity to learn from him, and eagerly started to study the forbidden spells the boy tried to teach him. He would rather die than give up the name of the person who first exposed him to the darker magic he now enjoys so much.

MIRROR OF ERISED: His greatest desire is to bring down the ministry from the inside and participate in the destruction of it. Once that happens, he wants to help establish the Death Eater's version of Aurors that stomps out any resistance or gathering together of enemies of their aims. Enjoys controlling others and hopes he can one day do that on a wider level.

PERSONALITY: Kyle is extremely ambitious, and sympathetic with the aims of the Death Eaters. Smart, cunning, and excellent at manipulating others. Possesses a cold-hearted nature that doesn't take risks in battle, often winning through ruthlessness as much as strategy. Never gives up on something he wants. His only redeeming quality is that he is loyal to the few friends he has, but if they betray him they will live to regret it.

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

EARLY YEARS: His early years were spent at home being instructed by his parents in the ways of discipline. They made him do all the chores around the house, including cooking dinner, which helped him to start relying on himself. When his sister was born ten years after him he was the one who often ended up taking care of her, not that he minded. Being ten now he was used to the chores of cooking and cleaning, a little more work didn't bother him. Jane and him got along well, and they did have a little fun together when he was able to finish all his chores and find some spare time. On days when he was late with a meal or forgot to do something, Kyle was not allowed to eat. Luckily for him, he had a good memory so rarely went without a meal. His parents and him were never comfortable around each other, but luckily Jane was a more mellow personality and helped to keep the peace. They often stayed up late talking till the wee hours of the morning, planning all of the adventures they would have at Hogwarts.

HOGWARTS YEARS: Kyle's Hogwarts years went by in a blur, he played on the Slytherin Quidditch team as a beater when he was allowed to try out for it in his third year and enjoyed that immensely. Defense Against the Dark Arts he did well in, because he knew the dark curses they were being taught to defend against inside and out. He also excelled in Transfiguration and Charms, his inventiveness and resourcefulness helping him to come up with interesting ways of using different spells to accomplish the same task. What he enjoyed most was the Dueling though, and was one of the tougher opponents for anybody to go up against. He knew even by his fourth year what he wanted to be, an Auror. Though, for him it wasn't to capture Dark Wizards, it was to help them escape and infiltrate the department of magical law enforcement from within.

Few knew that the person he had learned this from was Shawn Travers, and he kept the identity of the person who helped teach him a closely guarded secret. He knew that if it became known there was a Slytherin attempting to recruit students towards darker magic that he would most likely be expelled. He felt the boy was the only person he could trust, and so refused.

One of the other things about his Hogwarts years that is important to remember, was that he was a player, flitting from girl to girl with not a thought for their feelings. Kyle didn't believe in love, and still doesn't; but, that didn't stop him from enjoying the delights that come with having a girlfriend now and then. The smarter ones learned to avoid him early on, and spread the word. Still, he was always able to find a girl who would fall for his charms. And he had to admit, he enjoyed playing with their feelings.

ADULTHOOD: After undergoing the rigorous training to become an Auror, Kyle Becker achieved his dream of becoming one. He made sure to take down a lesser Death Eater here and there to avoid suspicion, but always found a way to let the important ones go free because that was the side he truly supported. Now that he's been in the department for a while, he is hoping he can start making a bigger difference for the death eaters. He is begging them for the opportunity for bigger missions, and hoping that he can help them gain dominance over the wizarding world.

As far as dating goes, Kyle hasn't dated too much since becoming an Auror. A fling here and there that meant nothing to him, but nothing serious or lasting. Still views them as objects for his enjoyment, and it is going to take one hell of a girl to change his mind.

[size=11]
ALSO KNOWN AS: Brian

RP EXPERIENCE: Four years of Roleplaying, going on my fifth this year

HOW YOU FOUND US: Through my friend Sydney, though I've considered this site before.

MAIN CHARACTER:  Kyle Becker

CHARACTER PURPOSE: For Sydney

RP SAMPLE:
Kyle walked into the bustling Auror department, eager to start another day of work. While he was working on sorting through the boring paperwork department, the man started to get the feeling something big was about to go down. Before he could ask if anything was happening he was called out on a mission to capture what were supposed to be three of the most important Death Eaters currently free and operating. Smirking on the inside, he went with them and played along until they were starting to get close. As soon as they engaged in the duel with them, he turned on his four aurors and started casting body-bind and stunning spells against them. Before they knew what was happening all of them were down, and he saluted the Death Eaters before letting them go on their way, wreaking havoc as they went. After giving it a fair amount of time, he awoke them and erased their memories, telling them they had been ambushed by one from the rear when he was engaging the rest. That he had fought hard, but he was outnumbered and decided to focus on defensive maneuvering until they gave up and went away. One more day that was a success in his book, although playing the role of the loyal Auror at times wore thin on him.

Brian,

Welcome to PA! Read your app, and I don't have a lot of issues with it, but would you please put his age in before I can take it all in its proper context?

Thanks!

Ok. Thanks. That gives me better perspective to evaluate your app. Now--i'd find it really, really hard for a 5 or 6 year old to be a caretaker of a baby--unless that didn't happen until later. I suggest you create about another 3 or 4 year difference somehow between him and his sister. Or explain how he did that.

The other thing that really isn't clear is what his almost obsessive drive is to be a Death Eater and how that came about for him. Is he tradition based? Has he been overly exposed to the dark arts? Where did that come from? You mention his exposure to dark arts but I don't see where that came from in his history.

He comes across to me as being perhaps a bit overpowered, example: perfecting certain spells, etc. We try not to make anyone "perfect" in anything here. Nor do we allow extreme violence. The buried alive thing is a bit strong for our site rules. Can you dial him down just a little?

I like the app. Its well written, and a lot is already explained. I know these sound like a lot of little things, but I think it will make him more cohesive and a bit more multidimensional and will give you more rp possibilities.

K.
