FINCH-FLETCHLEY, Jonathan

on Tue Apr 11, 2017 12:22 am
            
MAIN
They were the last people you'd expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they just didn't hold with such nonsense
    
    

    Character's Legal Name: Jonathan Lewis Finch-Fletchley

    Age: Thirteen

    Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff

    Blood Type:  Halfblood

    Species:

    Face claim: Ashton Moio
    
    



                
APPEARANCE
...Aunt Petunia often said that Dudley looked like a baby angel - Harry often said that Dudley looked like a pig in a wig
    
    

To be completely honest, Jonathan is a rather plain boy. He doesn't wear flamboyant clothes, or do much to stand out or anything of the like. He has a slender figure, but it rather scrawny because he's always been too scared of pretty much everything to play any kind of sport. He has short brown hair that is almost tame except for his bangs where they like to curl up on the left side of his forehead. His hair is pretty short now but at one point, he had it long enough to reach the bottom of his neck. Jonathan doesn't really seem to have a preference for the kind of clothes he wears, however he'll hardly ever be seen in anything dressy.
    
    



                
PERSONALITY
......If only the hat had mentioned a house for people who felt a bit queasy, that would have been the one for him
    
    

Jonathan is.. Awkward. But it's awkward in a cute way. He has a way with words that he doesn't know he has. But he has just a little bit of trouble getting his words into sentences, sometimes. He can be shy and quiet, usually driven by the thought of hurting those he cares about with whatever he might say. To him, if something is going to end up hurting his loved ones, he'd rather never say it even if it's important. He tends to not think about the consequences of what not saying those things might be.

That's how things tend to go poorly for him.

But he's not a bad person, at all. There's not a single mean, or bad, bone in the young boy's body. He's very hard-working and studious, determined to get the most out of his time in Hogwarts so he can get a good job once he graduates. But the quality about Jonathan that stands out the most is his loyalty. He will stick by a person no matter what, even if they hurt him, and (as mentioned before) he would rather keep quiet about something important as long as the person he's trying to protect doesn't get hurt.

He's a bad liar, though, so he's not good at keeping secrets. Meaning things always get out.
    
    



                
HISTORY
..................Hey! My eyes aren't 'glistening with the ghosts of my past'!
    
    

    Early Years: Jonathan is the second born of two children, both boys. Despite there being a seven year difference between the two boys, Jonathan always looked up to his older brother, Nathan, who always seemed to be the perfect son for their parents and the person Jonathan wanted to grow up to be like. A lot of the things Jon did, he did because he saw Nathan doing them. A love of Quidditch grew within the boy because his brother loved it, though he never thought he was good enough to play it. Nathan thought the same thing, but it didn't stop him from doing it.

That was how they were different, fear stopped Jonathan.

When Jonathan was seven, something happened that made him wish he wasn't so afraid of everything. A family vacation gone wrong.

It was the summer before Nathan's fifth year, the Finch-Fletchley family had decided to go on vacation. Everything was going well, until their parents got into a pretty heated argument over something that Jonathan didn't understand at the time. It seemed to involve him and Nathan. His brother got in the middle of the dispute, while Jon sat behind closed doors with his hands over his ears to block out the yelling. He wasn't a big fan of it. Marietta and Justin didn't always fight, but it was scary when they did, especially to a seven year old.

Doors slammed and Jonathan went to his parents, almost in tears, to find that Marietta and Nathan were gone. They'd gone out for a walk, he was told. Not long after they had left on the walk, Justin and Jonathan heard scream; cries for help. They recognized the voices and ran to the source. Marietta ran into Justin's arms, out of breath, pointing behind her. Nathan was not too far behind, but he'd tripped and was now sprawled on the ground.

Then something jumped out of the forest, covering Nathan's body. There was a howl and the creature lowered its head; he heard screams and saw Justin's figure running out toward it, wand in hand but nothing else. It must have been the shock from seeing his brother get attacked, but he seemed to have blacked out. He woke up the next morning thinking that it had been nothing more than a nightmare.

Merlin, was he wrong.

Nathan had actually been attacked and to make things worse, he fell into a coma after going berserk that night and collapsing. Marietta was in tears, claiming that everything had been her fault, that if she'd just been quicker to act they'd both be okay. Justin didn't seem to know what to do with himself. After three weeks of suspense and stress, Nathan woke up, but he wasn't the same. None of the Finch-Fletchleys were the same. Especially when none of them knew how to deal with the fact that Nathan wasn't human anymore.

Nathan was a werewolf. After finally being discharged from St. Mungo's, Nathan came home but everyone was distant. Jonathan could barely stay in the same room as him for long. That was the whole 'fear-rules-my-life' thing that Jonathan hated about himself. Yet, he never did much to change.

    Hogwarts Years: It was strange, being so cold toward the brother he'd once idolized, but he was just too scared to go near him now. He was afraid that he'd lose control and hurt him the same way he had been hurt. Jonathan felt bad that he was actually kind of.. Relieved that Nathan would be graduating soon when he started his time at Hogwarts. When Nathan had started at Hogwarts, Jonathan had been excited and couldn't wait for when he became a first year. He used to get upset when he remembered that his brother was so much older than him that when he finally got to Hogwarts, he would be leaving it and he wouldn't be able to spend time with him anyways.

But now, everything was different.

After Nathan graduated, Jonathan began to feel more comfortable at the castle. Spending pretty much your entire first year being afraid of your brother was tiring, so finally being able to spread his wings and do things normally again was a good thing. There's not really much else going on, but he's gaining some interest in the Quidditch teams, maybe it'll finally be time to get over his irrational fears.

    After Hogwarts: Lol, no.

Ashton! <3

So, in canon, this family was pretty well off. Do you just want to say that something happened to them between the generations to make their funds more modest?

You may also want to talk to Khaat about how he could get involved with the werewolf plot! That fear he felt might influence how he interacts with a lot of characters. Something to think about Wink It's also great to see another Hufflepuff running about. I just noticed that we have ZERO characters on the Pufflie quidditch team lol.

Anyway, the only other thing is this: If he was in a coma during a full moon, the staff has come to the conclusion that Nathan would still turn. So do you want to edit that to be a shorter time or something?

Let me know Smile
