SHERIDAN, Esai Harvey

on Sun Mar 06, 2016 4:49 pm


ESAI HARVEY SHERIDAN
______________________________________________________________________________________

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

NICKNAMES/ALIAS:

Shades. When Echo and Esai were 13 a gypsy stopped them in the Diagon Alley saying there are so many shades around Esai. Since that day, Echo sometimes called him Shades, others accepted it as his nicknames although the brothers never shared the story with anyone. Esai is okay with being called Shades.

AGE: 27, b. January, 15st., 2002.

ALLEGIANCE: Death Eaters.

Esai joined DE's about the same time when his brother started messing with drug production, it wasn't hard to join since many of his former clients are members of Death Eaters. Although it's nothing formal, Esai usually answers DE's pleads for a lawyer when they're in trouble, so he might call himself their unofficial lawyer. That also helps him to fulfill his number of pro bono cases.

HOGWARTS HOUSE: Former Slytherin.

WAND: Holly wood, thestral tail hair, 12'', rigid.

PLAY BY: Dawid Auguscik.

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

GENERAL APPEARANCE: Esai has icy blue eyes and short brown hair. His body is full of tattoos, the same ones his twin has so it's almost impossible to tell them apart, yet he's half of an inch shorter than Echo and a little bulkier than his brother. He wears simple clothes with tons of pockets. You probably won't find the person who hates colourful clothes more than Esai meaning he wears only black, white and grey coloured clothes. Besides tattoos he has a few piercings and streached ear holes. He wears a week old beard.



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

TRAITS:

00001 – brash.
In work circles, Esai is known as quite brash lawyer, one that is not afraid to offend someone, challenge someone, earn a warning if he believes that might help his client in its case. He's passionate in everything he does, sometimes too much, meaning he might 'forget' that one minor rule or two exist if that would lead him one step closer to his target.

00010 – calculating.
It might be a side effect of being a lawyer, or a reason he decided for that profession, Esai isn't sure which came first. Because of his works, he's needed to always think a few steps ahead and come quickly with a plan for every occasion that might or might not happen before it happens.

00011 – persistent.
Giving up is a strange word for Esai Sheridan, he's always pushing things forward, it doesn't matter how hard it might be sometimes, he never thinks about giving up on things he wants, even if everyone are trying to tell him to let it go. It's not in his nature to stop trying.

00100 – determined.
Esai makes his mind really quickly, he consider all the options and circumstances, once he makes his mind on some subject he sticks to that. He can't be manipulated into thinking otherwise easily and he isn't afraid to say what he thinks loud and clear.

00101 – cynical.
He could never be described as a beam of sunshine. Esai doesn't believe to people in general, finding them disloyal, selfish and dishonest (himself included). Out of courtroom, when he's surrounded by people he finds trustworthy his negative attitude can often be heard.

00110 – rational.
If there are two people in locked room, and after a beam of green light only one of them survives, the second one is the murderer, this is how people's minds usually works and Esai is no different. However he doesn't find it difficult to defend people for whom he thinks are guilty, and he'll do everything to make judge believes his client is innocent, or if that is impossible to reduce his sentence as much as he can.

00111 - likes to risk.
He's unsure if it is because of adrenaline rush or because of challenge it represents, but Esai likes to risk, involve himself in risky situations, take cases no one wants because it's almost impossible to win them. It's not something new, he's been that way since he was young.

01000 – pragmatic.
Even since he likes to risk that doesn't mean he'll abandon logic thinking and start do things based on how he feels at the moment. He's always seeking for a logical way of dealing with every situation that might happen.

01001 – focused.
Once he sets his mind on something, or starts to do something it's impossible to make him stop doing that. It will become main interest of his and he won't let it go until he's satisfied with the result.

01010 – competitive.
Esai likes to be the best, he knows he might not always have the best ideas, do something in the best way but he often seeks for better. Although he often denies it, he secretly follow other lawyers trials and keeps a track of them so he'd be able to beat them if they ever cross his path in the courtroom.

01011 – underhanded.
Playing fair is not a rule for Sheridan. In order to win some case he's ready to do almost everything, even if his act sometimes aren't entirely legal.

01100 – independent.
Growing up in not supportive family as his Esai learned to be independent, that doesn't mean he stopped loving his family, it only means he's able to live on his own, even without them if they choose that way. His brother Anson chose to completely remove Esai from his life and life of his family, stating Esai is ill because of his sexual orientation, and saying he doesn't want that passed on any of his children; Esai miss his brother, but is standing out of Anson's way respecting his wish.

01101 – workaholic.
Esai's job is his greatest attainment, having a firm on his own with two partners fills his chest with pride. He works way too much, trying to improve their firm, taking only a few free days every month. It isn't healthy and he knows it but he doesn't want to stop.

01110 – nosey.
He likes knowing things and finding out new information even if it means he sometimes needs to pry in other's lives to fins something useful.

01111 – arrogant.
His greatest flaw. Esai sometimes think he's more important than some other people, he sometimes unconsciously underestimates people.

10000 – demanding.
Esai tries to be the best, and he expects the same in return, it's only fair that way. He doesn't settle for anything moderately done, either he's all the way in or out, there's nothing in between.

10001 – humorous.
Although he might seem a little upright it's not true, not entirely. Esai can be funny if he wants to but he can hardly be called a buffoon.

10010 – adaptable.
He tries to assimilate and he does it fairly well, believing that human being can adjust to everything if it wants to.

10011 – feeling.
Even since he doesn't look like that, Esai is, in fact quite compassionate person. He deeply cares for ones he find worth of his attention, he never shows it, though, thinking it makes him look weak, and if he hates something, that's being called weak.




“Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.“



– David Deida



ENFJs are natural-born leaders, full of passion and charisma. Forming around two percent of the population, they are oftentimes our politicians, our coaches and our teachers, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. With a natural confidence that begets influence, ENFJs take a great deal of pride and joy in guiding others to work together to improve themselves and their community.

People are drawn to strong personalities, and ENFJs radiate authenticity, concern and altruism, unafraid to stand up and speak when they feel something needs to be said. They find it natural and easy to communicate with others, especially in person, and their Intuitive (N) trait helps people with the ENFJ personality type to reach every mind, be it through facts and logic or raw emotion. ENFJs easily see people's motivations and seemingly disconnected events, and are able to bring these ideas together and communicate them as a common goal with an eloquence that is nothing short of mesmerizing.

The interest ENFJs have in others is genuine, almost to a fault – when they believe in someone, they can become too involved in the other person's problems, place too much trust in them. Luckily, this trust tends to be a self-fulfilling prophesy, as ENFJs' altruism and authenticity inspire those they care about to become better themselves. But if they aren't careful, they can overextend their optimism, sometimes pushing others further than they're ready or willing to go.

ENFJs are vulnerable to another snare as well: they have a tremendous capacity for reflecting on and analyzing their own feelings, but if they get too caught up in another person's plight, they can develop a sort of emotional hypochondria, seeing other people's problems in themselves, trying to fix something in themselves that isn't wrong. If they get to a point where they are held back by limitations someone else is experiencing, it can hinder ENFJs' ability to see past the dilemma and be of any help at all. When this happens, it's important for ENFJs to pull back and use that self-reflection to distinguish between what they really feel, and what is a separate issue that needs to be looked at from another perspective.

People with the ENFJ personality type are passionate altruists, sometimes even to a fault, and they are unlikely to be afraid to take the slings and arrows while standing up for the people and ideas they believe in. It is no wonder that many famous ENFJs are US Presidents – this personality type wants to lead the way to a brighter future, whether it's by leading a nation to prosperity, or leading their little league softball team to a hard-fought victory.

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

“You can love me or hate me. I swear it won't break me.“

September, 2005, at home

Despite frequent lessons he got because of sitting on a marble floor, Esai was casually sprawled on the first step once again, with a book about animals in his lap, while his brother was shooting ball in the hallway. He could read itelsewhere, but the twins liked being together, they didn't need to talk to each other all the time, but they were rarely apart. The sound of glass breaking startled Esai. Esai closed the book, he was in the middle of second paragraph about whales but the whales needed to wait. According to the sound he heard, Echo broke a vase, again. It was second broken vase this week and about 20th in total, neither one boy cared but their mother really liked those ugly things, and since she was only a room away so she most likely heard the noise and is on her way towards the hallway. Esai stood up and dusted off his clothes, it was more a habit then something he needed to do since their father had them cleaned twice per day. The boy hurried through the hallway, eager to meet his brother before their mother joined the party. He was late,Primose Sheridan was in the middle of speech when Esai joined them, he glanced at his brother, listening mother's screaming all that time. Echo looked like he's a second away from bursting into tears, so Esai stepped in front of him, meeting mother's gaze. "It's my fault. I broke the vase."


“You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to any of your heroes. Become what you wish to be.“

September, 2011, Hogwarts

They were living in Aberdeen, Scotland with their mother, because she thought the kids should see their homeland and spend some time living there, when an owl came to their home carrying two yelowish envelopes with Esai and Echo's names written in curvy smaragd handwriting the boys were puzzled. Their family got plenty of mail everyday considering their father was English ambassador in Kyrgyzstan, but all that mail came through post office, this was the first time an owl came with messages, and first time brothers got mail. Esai's puzzled expression mirrored Echo's when they read letters. Magicdidn't exist, they were often told, yet they got invitation for attending the best magical school in the UK. They showed letters to their parents, and were allowed to attend the school after comprehensive conversation. It ended that magic really did exist, at least father said he knew someone who attended Hogwarts, and knew it was good school to send his sons there. The boys came to Hogwarts together with other kids by Hogwarts Express. While Echo ended as a Ravenclaw, Esai was sorted in Slytherin.


“People may hate you for being different and not living by society's standards,but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same.“

February, 2012, Hogwarts

Reading in the library after classes was more a thing Echo would do, however the other twin lately spent more time in the library than at any other place because of Charms essay he needed to give to the professor tomorrow. That's why he was reading books that were probably older than professor himself, determined to find some rarely used spells he could use in his work. He lifted his head when a sandwich was put in front of him. "Here, eat something. You know mum will kill me if you starve yourself to death." Esai chuckled and thanked his brother, he pulled the chair beside him and turned a few more pages forward in the book he was reading, eating a sandwich quickly the whole time. When Esaifound the spell he was looking for he tapped it and let his brother read the description. "Wanna do it?" Esai wiped his mouth with a tissue he had in his pocket and looked at his brother, seeing smirk on Echo's face Esai knew they're going to do it, but where. "Girl's bathroom." Echo solved that problem. Excellent.


“Being called weird is like being called limited edition. Meaning you're something people don't see that often.“

September, 2017, Hogwarts

Instead of doing Herbology homework like he was supposed to Esai spent last half an hour drawing curvy lines all over his pergament. His Herbology homework looked more like Ivy forest than like an essay describing various use of Poisoned Ivy in medicine. He glanced at his brother, than checked if anyone was around. They were alone, he should do it now, he should say it now when there's no one who could hear their conversation. Esai felt lump in his throat that was keeping him from saying anything. Maybe he could keep this a secret? Echo would suspect something right away. Esaicleared his throat to attract Echo's attention. He checked if someone entered the room, it was an useless act because they'd hear door opening in that case, as he predicted, the room was still empty. "Do you know what will we have for lunch tomorrow?", it was a stupid question, no one but house elves knew the answer on that question, "by the way, I have a boyfriend." He finished looking in his pergament, avoiding brother's eyes.


“No one can tell you who you are.“

July, 2019, at home, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Esai couldn't stop bitter laugh after hearing mother's question and was awarded with disapproving look from his father but he didn't care. Primose already knew the answer on that question even since she liked to ignore it. "Mother, you know that will never happen. Mostly because I'm in relationship with Costin and I'm quite sure you know it." He wiped his mouth and pushed his plate away, realizing he wasn't in the mood to eat. "In case you still don't get it: you won't meet my girlfriend because I'm not interested in women. Now if you could excuse me, I'm done with this dinner." Without glancing at his parents' direction to see if they wanted to say something, he stood up, knocking his chair down in the process, he didn't stop to return it in its previous position, he walked towards the door, stopping and taking a breath.

"My hair might be straight, mom, but I am not.“ He told them looking in the door the whole time, and, without turning back, left the room. Although he tried really hard not to show it, her mother's efforts to change him, make him 'right' really sad? Disappointed? Esai wasn't sure, bit of both, perhaps. Yet he was 100% sure he didn't want for his parents to notice that, it was bad enough he couldn't hide it from Echo and Aroa. Let's not mention Anson, who refuses to come on family reunions because of Esai, saying he doesn't want Esai's ilness affect  his family.


“The one thing I don't want to be is a burden to anyone.“

December, 2024, at home, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Esai set the table. It would be easy task if he knew where his mother kept their dinner set, or more likely where the housekeeper kept the dinner set because he never saw his mother cooking when he lived here, and he doubted something changed since he moved out and started living on his own in the UK. He walked through the hall, it was too decorated for his taste, but his parents liked to show off even if that meant they might cross the border from beautiful to kitschy. She told him she'll be in father's office so he stopped in front of that door, seeing them ajar. A second before he knocked on the doorframe he heard Anson's voice from the inside. Puzzled since mother told him his older brother is not coming to the Christmas dinner, he stopped his fist only an inch away from dark wood and listened. "I don't want to be here, mother. I don't want to be around him and you know it very well.“ "Anson, please..“ He could hear Primose's pleading voice. Esai's brows rose, he wanted to come in and see if he could help his brother, but something stopped him. „Don't Anson, please me mom. I don't want my children around him either, Esai is sick mom, his way is sick, and I don't want his illness to be passed on my children, my perfectly normal children.“

Esai drew a sharp breath, staring in the door, the puzzle was solved. He know with whom Anson has a problem now, with him. He spend a second, or two just standing there, before he turned on his heel and hurried towards his and Echo's room. Half walking half running he entered the room slamming the door after him. He could see it startled Echo, based on his facial expression but he didn't care. His brother's betrayal cut him too deep, he never expected that. Esai opened his duffel bag and started throwing his clothes in. Usually he'd make sure to put it in neatly, but he needed to get out of here as soon as possible. With a duffel bag on his shoulder he turned and looked at Echo. „Please tell Anson I'll respect his wish. He will never see me again. I'll see you when you return to London, but I need to leave now, we have some difficult case in firm and Patricia and Cillian needs me.“ He walked to the door and opened them, „Kiss Marion and Aroa for me, I can't stay to say goodbye.“ Esai opened the door before Echo could reply, and stepped out, apparating.

“I may be wrong but I highly doubt it.“

August, 2026, London, ASF Law Firm

It was one of slower days in AFS law firm. Given their reputation, it was extremely rare. Esai, S from their name, was sitting at his desk and going through files of Echo Sheridan's case. It was thrid case against hi min six months, and although he still isn't close from breaking his own record, he might become their most frequent client if he keeps this pace. Esai wasn't his lawyer, both Echo and Esai agreed that wouldn't look well so Cillian and Patricia were listed as his lawyers but that doesn't mean he couldn't peak in his file when he wanted. All three of them were pretty easy going in the office and usually they helped each other with cases, so he knew Patrica nor Cillian will tell him anything against reading brother's file. “So, are you two coming at the dinner in Sunday?“ Patricia sat on the end of his table and looked at him, with two warm mugs of coffee in her hand. She handled him one when he glanced up, Esai took the mug whispering thanks and flashing her with dimpled smile.

“Me and who else? Echo?“ Esai raised his brows, sipping his coffee. “You and Cillian, silly, though you can bring Echo too, I won't mind.“ Her cheeks become rosy pink as she hid her smile behind her mug. Esai chuckled, no one would believe him that this woman in front of him was one of the most badass lawyers, after seeing how she acts every time someone says Echo's name. He thought Echo is blind for not seeing it for himself, or he knew for crush she had on him but decided to ignore it, Esai never asked him about it knowing Echo is not interested. “Sure, we will come, I'll ask Echo too, but don't hold your breath, you know he's..“ Esai stopped, searching for right word, “he's always busy.“ Esai shrugged then turned around when the door of their office opened, and prosecutor stepped in. “Good morning, I'm here because we decided to offer a deal for Sheridan, Echo's case. May I speak with his lawyers?“

Patricia stood up from Esai's table and smoothed her pencil skirt. “You may, what is your offer?“ Esai asked, leaning back and making himself more comfortable in office chair, he already knew they won't accept the offer, Echo told them not to agree on any offer the prosecutor's office may have, and Esai agreed with him. “Are you his lawyer, mr…?“ Sheridan, and no I am not.“ CI am his lawyer, please speak, we don't have much time.“ Patricia joined the conversation, glancing in the mirror to see if her hair is still in strict bun she often wore on work, it was. CWe offer him three years in jail, but he needs to claim guilty on all counts.“ The prosecutor looked at Patricia, then shifted her gaze to Esai, seeming unable to decide who's the head of the law firm. Too bad all three of us were, and with Cillian absent, that left only Patricia and Esai. CWe appreciate the offer, but we won't take it. See you at courtroom.“ Patricia said and returned to her desk, sat and started to put papers on her desk in order, thus showing that this meeting was over.

"It's a really great offer, miss., you should at least consider accepting it.“ Patricia ignored the prosecutor's words, and Esai took that as a hint to end this conversation. He stood up and walked towards the door and opened it. CThat was a no. Our doors are always opened to you,“ Esai smiled sweetly, “especially when you're leaving.“ The prosecutor frowned, and with quiet 'goodbye' left their office, accompanied with Patricia's chuckling and trying to mask it with cough.

Esai closed the door and head for his coat. “I'll go to bring some breakfast, do croissant sound good to you? Cillian should come in an hour, I should be back by then, see you doll.“

Okay, first off, Esai strikes me as particularly Slytherin, rather than Hufflepuff. Hufflepuffs tend to be loyal in general or to ideas, while Slytherins are loyal to specific people. Additionally, Esai has a lot of Slytherin traits.

Secondly, your character would not have been invited to Hogwarts unless he was living in the UK when the owls went out. I suggest changing the history so that their father's job was transferred back to Britain just before they were invited; that's what I've done for a couple of my characters in the past.

If he's having flings with his (female, it seems) coworker, but says he's not interested in women... is he just lying to his mother then?

Also, some of your paragraphs in the history section are really long, you might want to go through and see if you can split them up a bit.

Once you clear that up, he looks good to go.

He can be a Slytherin, I don't mind.

If that's such a huge problem, I can write that he was living somewhere in the UK when the boys got their letters, however it wasn't long term.

Cillian is Irish masculine name. Costin is Romanian masculine name. There aren't any females mentioned.

I can split every paragraph in as much pieces as you want. Which paragraphs, specifically?

Ah, I think I got mixed up because he's speaking to Patricia in the memory so you're using a lot of "she" and Cilla is a girls' name.

With the school thing, your character would go to the magic school closest to their place of residence. So if they were residing in Kyrgyzstan, they would go to school there, or at the nearest magical school. Hogwarts is the school for students in the United Kingdom. There's even some suggestion that children in the Republic of Ireland wouldn't necessarily get a Hogwarts Letter because they are not part of the UK.

It doesn't so much matter where they physically were when the owls went out, so much as where they lived. Sorry for the confusion about that.

Re: SHERIDAN, Esai Harvey

on Sun Mar 06, 2016 6:30 pm
Alright.

There's written they were living in Scotland for certian amount of time during which they got their letters because their mother wanted them to live in their homeland so they were in their house in Aberdeen when the letters came. So they were living on territory of the United Kingdom when they were eleven.

Okay, that's fine then. I'll accept him, also on the condition that you read the remarks Khaat made on Echo's app since they seem to be plotted together.
