WAND: Beech, Dragon Heartstring, 11.5 inches + slightly springy.
Wood: Beech " The true match for a beech wand will be, if young, wise beyond his or her years, and if full-grown, rich in understanding and experience. Beech wands perform very weakly for the narrow-minded and intolerant. Such wizards and witches, having obtained a beech wand without having been suitably matched (yet coveting this most desirable, richly hued and highly prized wand wood), have often presented themselves at the homes of learned wandmakers such as myself, demanding to know the reason for their handsome wand’s lack of power. When properly matched, the beech wand is capable of a subtlety and artistry rarely seen in any other wood, hence its lustrous reputation." - (Pottermore)
Core: Dragon Heartstring " As a rule, dragon heartstrings produce wands with the most power, capable of the most flamboyant spells. Dragon wands tend to learn quicker than other types. While they can change allegiance if won from their original master, they always bond strongly with the current owner." - (Pottermore)

PLAY BY: Jaden Smith


HAIR COLOUR: Darkest Brown

EYE COLOUR: Dark Brown

GENERAL APPEARANCE: Sam is tall and of an athletic build, however because of his height he can sometimes appear lanky, especially as he has long arms and legs. His neck is also somewhat long and flows into his face, which is rectangular in shape. His nostrils are slightly flared but his warm eyes and cheeks make him appear to be an approachable person. It is not uncommon to see Sam with a smile on his face, laughing.

FASHION: During weekdays Sam wears his Hogwarts uniform most of the time, however whenever he can get away with it he discards his robe and simply wears his trousers and jumper with the sleeves rolled back. His shirt is usually untucked and visible as it escapes the bottom of his jumper and his tie is slackened and the top button of his shirt is always undone - even if he is asked to pull his tie up the top button remains open, concealed behind the knot. At the weekend Sam goes for a comfortable approach during the winter: a jumper and jeans. However in the summer the jumper is exchanged for a t shirt and the jeans are replaced for shorts. Of course, during these summer periods, when outside he'll wear his denim jacket mostly.

BOGGART: (Greatest Fear)
+ Sam's boggart would take the form of a zombie. When he was six years old his older cousin (muggle) made him watch a zombie apocalypse movie and since they he has been scared for life and is even more scared now he knows that zombies are in fact real, despite what his muggle cousins believe.

PATRONUS: (Fondest Memory)
+ Sam has many fond memories and so has not too much trouble in conjuring a patronus. One memory in particular that stands out is the first time he attended a footballer match with his Dad between West Ham and Norwich City. The atmosphere in the stadium was electric and the game was so close that it went to extra time and then onto penalties. The memory not only draws upon the adrenaline that filled the stands but reminds him of his Father and the bond that they have.

DEMENTOR: (Worst Memory)
+ After his older cousins discovered his fear of zombies during a sleepover they woke Sam in the middle of the night, pretending to be terrified that there were zombies trying to break into the house and, upon looking out of the window, Sam saw his cousins siblings dressed as zombies (which he thought was real at the time) and they eventually ended up in the house leading to Sam locking himself in the airing cupboard  beneath the boiler crying... He was seven years old at the time and they had watched a scary film - a non-zombie film because Sam had refused to.

VERITASERUM: (Greatest Secret)
+ He doesn't have a greatest secret per say, although he has lied numerous times to teachers to get his classmates out of trouble and has helped sneak firewhiskey from Hogsmede into the castle for after Quidditch match parties and, given the fact most of the students are under age, Sam would get in deep trouble for supplying alcohol to twelve and thirteen year olds. Of course he has matured since then and would only sell the firewhiskey onto students who are in their fifth year at least.

MIRROR OF ERISED: (Greatest Desire)
If Sam were to look into the mirror of erised he would see himself on a journey in a place that he hadn't been before, getting engrossed in a new culture. Mostly in a place, such as Hawaii as that is somewhere he has always wanted to go to. The idea of the tropical beach, the island community and the culture just appears attractive to him.

PERSONALITY: Sam is an easy going chap who was rightfully sorted into Gryffindor. Although he does possess the Hufflepuff qualities of hardwork and loyalty, some much so that he would willingly defend a friend without been asked and even when putting himself at risk, what makes him a Gryffindor is hid bold nature. He is active, creative and willing to try things that could be a little dangerous or risky. Moreover Sam, although may get scared wont shy away from his fears he'll find the courage and face them. Of course there are more qualities to a person than what would define their sorting position. Sam is progressively minded, due to the way his parents have raised him, and a respectable person. Occasionally he may speak out against someone of authority if caught off guard or shocked but it is never with bad intentions and, upon realising that he was out of line, will apologise and be embarrassed for the way in which he behaved. Most of the time he can be found either getting up to mischief with his friends or relaxing in the common room once he has completed his homework, which he usually does a few days before it is due. Like most of his peers in Gryffindor Sam isn't terribly fond of homework but he enjoys learning and is reasonably intelligent, especially when it comes to using a wand with charms and transfigurations being his favourite subject, shortly followed by defense against the dark arts and care of magical creatures.


FATHER: Dean Thomas (47)

MOTHER: Demelza Thomas (46)


OTHER: Lots of muggle cousins on his Fathers side as Dean had numerous half sisters that didn't possess any magical ability.



Delilah - His short haired ginger cat.

Broomstick. Oil Paints.


Dean and Demelza met on the Gryffindor Quidditch Team although they didn't begin dating until after they'd both completed their Hogwarts years and bumped into each other on Diagon Alley a few years later. Dean suggested that they have a drink in the Leaky Cauldron for a catch up and since then their love story began. Once Demelzas career in the department of magical sports and games had  taken off the two decided to marry and a couple of years later a baby boy, by the name of Samuel David Thomas, was welcomed into their home.
Growing up Sam had the perfect childhood. He was loved by both of his parents, lived in a reasonable sized home and was encouraged to chase the things that he loved. A lot of his childhood was spent painting with his Father, who had been a part time artist selling and painting portraits on request. Naturally Sam became a West Ham Supporter like his Father, which drew much controversy in their house when Dean bought his son a west ham football kit. Demelza, who was a Quidditch fanatic didn't want her son running around chasing a football, she would much rather Sam play on a toy broomstick that hovered above the ground. In the end Sam showed an interest in both sports and has since attended Lancashire Quidditch Games (the team he supports, which he originally chose at the age of 7 because he liked their kit).
Being an only child mean't that Sam loved to visit his relatives, even if they weren't magical and he soon realised that life was much more enjoyable being around friends than being alone. It was this that made him anxious to start Hogwarts where he would be living with his classmates, meeting new people and experience things that he hadn't at home. It came to no surprise to Dean and Demelza how happy their son was when he received his letter invititing him to attend Hogwarts.

Upon arriving at Hogwarts Sam fit right into student life. He easily made friends, worked hard in lessons and has managed to find a good work-play balance. There isn't anything that has stood out in his Hogwarts years, he is simply a sixteen year old boy who was grown as a person, found his way onto the Gryffindor Quidditch Team and enjoys getting up to mischief. However, in his fourth year he did join Potters Army, although this was more for fun and to meet new people and develop his friendships as opposed to joining them purely based on supporting their perspectives. Naturally Sam has made his fair share of enemies since joining Potters Army in the Dark Followers and, around match times, is quite the target to jinxes and hexes from the Slytherin Quidditch Team. Not that this bothers Sam, in fact, he has developed a somewhat love-hate relationship with the Slytherins.
In September Sam will be entering his sixth year and is looking forward to the additional free periods and not having to study classes he dislikes, such as history of magic.



RP EXPERIENCE: I've been here over two years and did a little roleplaying years back before joining PA.

HOW YOU FOUND US: I remember finding you on a list of Harry Potter RPG Forums on I think harry potter wikia?

MAIN CHARACTER: Hallie Cooper / Bertie Nogard

CHARACTER PURPOSE: I wanted to create a canon character that was male and a student. Moreover I wanted a character that falls on the Potters Army / Dumbledores Army side of the feuding forces as I already have a fair share of death eaters. Sam seemed to fit exactly what I wanted!

At least one paragraph - skip if you have another character
