______________________________________________________________________________________

------------------------------------------------------------

"Charlie Robin"- His father. His mother pre-divorce. Bertha the housekeeper.

AGE: 11

ALLEGIANCE: Neutral

HOGWARTS HOUSE: He reads like a Ravenclaw but hoping for Gryffindor for character development purposes Razz

WAND: He doesn't have one yet.

PLAY BY: Freddie Highmore

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

GENERAL APPEARANCE:
At first glance Charlie appears to take after his mother, with her dark hair, blue eyes, and calm demeanor. This is perhaps more due to his personality and the way he holds himself than his actual appearance, as he lacks the boisterous nature of his father and older sister. He certainly has Robin's high cheekbones and almond eyes, in the slightly darker blue shade of the Jerichos rather than the clear blue of the McKillons. He is small and thin in the wiry, prepubescent way of children not quite on the cusp of adolescence. As such, he looks younger than his age and a little puny, which does not help temper his timidity. If his older brother is anything to go by, Charlie will grow to be tall and slender, with their father's breadth of shoulder. His hair is short, though summer sees it grow to cover the tops of his ears, which can make him look a little scruffy. As for clothing, he is usually dressed in jeans or coloured trousers, paired with some old converse and a jumper or a tshirt in warmer months. He likes coats and socks but does not wear hats. Robes have the effect of making him look awkward and undersized as they tend to swamp him, so they are usually avoided.

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

EARLY YEARS:

Charlie's birth was the third unexpected addition to Maddie and Robin Jericho's small family, though by then the young parents should not have had cause to be surprised. His mother was on the greatest expedition of her short career when she discovered her pregnancy and promptly returned to England to give birth to him, where they stayed. As a result, Charlie has never experienced the taste of adventure Casper (and to a lesser extent, Kathryn) had in their younger years, which perhaps accounts for his quiet lifelong yearning for it. The taking off of his father's quidditch career also coincided with his birth, so he lacked the stable presence of an attentive father figure, something that had more of an effect on him than anyone fully realises. Still, he grew up comfortably cloistered with his mother and siblings and many pets, and for the first few years of his life at least had all he could otherwise wish for in his small world.

When he was six, his parents began the separation that would eventually lead to their divorce two years later, and it was at this time that he first began to withdraw into his shell. He'd always been shy, a little quieter than both his siblings, but the change that took over the household had a particularly adverse effect on the youngest Jericho. His family does not fully realise the extent of the change that took place within the small boy as a result of these events, taking it as a more natural development given his quiet nature. He grew even more dependent on his mother and siblings, anxious to stay firmly nestled in the heart of what he feared was a steadily unraveling family.

The highlights of these tumultuous years were his father's occasional visits and the time spent with his siblings when they weren't at Hogwarts. On their trips to watch quidditch matches or out as a family he displayed uncharacteristic levels of energy, growing animated and exuberant. These instances were infrequent and only accompanied a strong sense of security and comfort, which became even rarer after the finalisation of the divorce and his father's subsequent death, despite his family's efforts to remedy this.

Charlie has spent the last year in Hogsmeade firmly enclosed within the small circle of his mother and siblings, with occasional ventures into the outside world. Maddie has attempted to widen their social circle and he has taken well to this and to what he has seen of the school, to the particular surprise of his mother and sister. The shift has been barely noticeable, but substantial enough to make him look forward to Hogwarts rather than dread it, though he remains nervous about the change and anxious about having to make friends.

After a year in Hogsmeade, his mother decided moving back to London for the summer months would be a good break. She sent him off with his brother and sister, staying behind to finish packing the last of their things. He got on the Hogwarts express. He hasn't got off.

alyssa--

i read him and, i like him. actually, he's got enough in him that i can justify making him a gryffindor.

i think he really needs to get to know andrew diamond--they'd have a lot in common as quiet, adventuring gryffys!

accepted and sorted to gryffindor

Thanks Khaat!

Yeah, I thought maybe making him a Gryffindor would help to bring out those traits more.

And yes for sure! We should do a thread as soon as the school year starts!

That's amazing! We'll see if Charlie lasts that long XD.  Andrew is also in the same year as Charlie's older brother who is a Ravenclaw and also the quiet type. If Casper knows Andrew, he might ask him to look out for Charlie, since he was originally expecting that he'd join him in Ravenclaw. Their Gryffindor sister is a little unreliable. What do you think?

that'll work. in a nutshell, andrew's dad was a bad egg. andrew would often escape to the yard or the woods to be on his own and he learned to climb trees and how to take care of himself. When his dad would drag him along to the pubs, andrew started to learn to pickpocket to get money to have something to eat, or he'd steal bread or fruit from vendors. the only friend he really had was a little green frog that, as andrew got to be hogwarts age, he learned he could talk to. so, hogwarts let him have his frog. but, andrew's dad died, so he's had to have a legal guardian. ooc, that guardianship changed a few times, so he ended up with robert and kate lupin as his legal guardians. but--he spends most of his breaks and holidays w/ michael tremaine who is teaching him the fine arts of catburglary--and also the "appropriate filters" with it so that andrew learns he steals for the "greater good" and not for his own gain. (gryffindors that all his adult rolemodels are, he can hardly go any other way.) but andrew is always, always up for adventure of any kind.

Perfect. The unreliable dead dad thing is another connection lol. Charlie needs to know someone with a bit of an edge. He and Andrew should get into some sort of scrape or maybe he can help Charlie out of one. I'm going to go read his app and once everyone's back at Hogwarts I'll give you a shout! Smile
