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: Nemo middlenamehere Omara

  Known Aliases: Mortimer, Mo, Mort, Poe
Both "Mortimer" and "Mo" are nicknames which derive from the last two letters of his birth name. This title is used by those who are familiar with Nemo, and are therefore aware of the discomfort that his proper name inflicts upon him. Whereas "Mort" was assigned to him by Khaat Lupin as a method of shortening "Mortimer".

He was labeled "Poe" by Jack Dyllan as a comparison to Edger Allen Poe for his alcoholism.


Date of Birth: April 8th, MIGHT REWRITE THIS
Having come into the world on the eighth of April, Nemo was born with the zodiac sign of Aries, or The Ram. It is stated by those Seers who believe that astrology is of significance in the prediction of the personalities and distant futures of human beings, that he who is born under the sign of The Ram are often creative and insightful. In turn, however, Aries people are often driven and are very ambitious, often making them over-achievers in any given activity. They are commonly quick to anger, as they posses very impulsive personalities. Aries signs have an excellent sense of humor, and are the personification of chaos / parties / festivities. They are impatient, devoted lovers when settled, and often support the underdogs of society.

In the study of Numerology, the number eight is said to bring misfortune and pain upon those unfortunate enough to have been born on the day of the even number. In many instances, the power of the number eight has been balanced, so to counteract the “curse” and to provide the subject with luck, rather than hardship. However, this would require a vast knowledge of numerology.


  Sexual Orientation: Bisexual

Hogwarts House: Gryffindor Alumni

     Wand: African Blackwood, Dragon Heartstring & Ashwinder Ash, 11'', Bendy
Upon the end of Nemo's wand, a divination rune is perched. The rune is a purple color, and was cut to have jagged edges. This stone contrasts dramatically in color with the dark Blackwood that his wand is made of. All aspects of Nemo's wand suit his needs as a practitioner of divination, and as a wizard who actively takes part in dueling.

  Allegiance: The Ministry of Magic
As a dedicated Auror, it is Nemo’s sworn duty to kick up a storm within the Ministry whenever an opportunity to do so should present itself. This responsibility entails the possession of alcohol on the official premises at all times, a minimum of ten regulations broken on a daily basis, and an absolute disregard for the dress code no matter the circumstance. On occasions, this code may too permit having sexual intercourse with a coworker on the Minister of Magic’s desk, so long as the office is left in disarray.

Blood Type:  Halfblood

   Species: N/A

Face claim: Misha Collins

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

  Eyes: Just as Nemo inherited his mother’s physic abilities, he too had been blessed with a pair of crystal blue eyes. Of such a pure color were his irises that Nemo’s father had insisted that they were a result of the gift that he had inherited. Surely, it was no coincidence that he and his mother shared the same, impossibly blue color.

  Hair: While Nemo inherited his mother’s eyes, it was his father who was responsible for his dark, multicolored locks. Several shades of brown could be spotted throughout Nemo’s short hair. To such an extent, in fact, that it was often difficult to identify its true color after even the slightest change of lighting within a room.

  Height: 5'10

  Physique: Due to his height, Nemo often hunched his shoulders forward. This stance had a drastic effect on his appearance; though Nemo had the physique of an ectomorph, his poor posture hid his linearity. When Nemo did not put a conscious effort into standing straight - a consciousness that only existed if a remark was made about his laziness - he could easily be mistaken for a mesomorph.

  Voice: With a voice quite like that of a helium addict, it had always been particularly difficult for Nemo to convince his peers to take his words seriously. In fact, if asked to do so, he could easily recall several instances in which his words had been of grave importance, but had gone unheard by those around him, due to the comical nature of his voice. As a child, Nemo had seen this trait as a curse. But after twenty-some years of sounding like a chipmunk, he had eventually come to terms with his misfortune. If anything, it suited his childish first name – a fact that many others had been very keen to point out in the past. Nemo speaks in a thick American accent.

  Personal Style: Though his mother would have preferred that he'd dressed properly (in a cloak/clothing that wizards were accustomed to wearing) Nemo quickly followed in his father's footsteps and began to dress in muggle clothing. At an early age Nemo had grown particularly fond of plaid and dark wash denim, a combination which he very rarely strayed from. It was this choice of clothing that made his American heritage most apparent.

Frequently-Worn Wardrobe:
001. Plaid / Flannel Button-Ups
002. Military
003. Thin Italian Ties
004. Three Piece Suit Vests
005. Tattered Vintage Denim
006. Sarcastic / Witty Graphic Tees

Nemo was born in Cassadaga, Florida, due to the nature of his mother's business. Cassadaga is a small town that is well known for having a large number of psychics and mediums, and has consequently been named the "Psychic Capital of the World". This location provided Nemo with a great convience; no further than a mile away from his home was the Cassadaga Hotel, which later served as Nemo's first place of occupation. The Cassadaga Hotel was a physic center which hired experienced physics and mediums. It was here where his mother worked as well. Nemo's favorite mystic supply shop, 6th Sense, too was no further from his home than a walking distance.

His childhood home belonged to his mother. (Image One, Image Two )

A Rose By Any Other Name...
The Name

It was predicted (by way of a prophecy) by his mother that he would be an insignificant human being following his birth, and thus he was named “Nemo”, a Latin name originating from the word for “nobody” or “no one”. REWRITE MOTHER'S NAME HERE often reminded Nemo of the meaning behind his name, and it is for this reason that he experiences such discomfort when he is referred to by this name, as apposed to the many aliases that he has grown accustomed to using in its stead.

An Origin Story

Far too early on in life Nemo did learn the meaning of suffering; during every moment that RENAME FATHER HERE had spent away from home, RENAME MOTHER HERE had seized the opportunity to "reprimand" her son for "what he had done". As though testing the waters, she had begun with simple swats against the back of his head. But RENAME MOTHER HERE quickly grew confident in her own toxic behavior. And so the young boy's suffering continued. For years he endured his mother's violence, and even began to believe that he deserved the abuse that was inflicted upon him, for RENAME MOTHER HERE had informed him far too many times that he had stolen her precognition from her for him to believe otherwise. GOING TO REWRITE THIS SO THAT IT MENTIONS AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE, HINTING AT IT INSTEAD OF OUTRIGHT MENTIONING ABUSE.

   Hogwarts Years: His acceptance into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry had been his saving grace. With overwhelming relief, Nemo had fled from home & boarded the Hogwarts’ Express. Surely, his life at school would prove to be more nourishing than the life that he’d previously experienced / grown all too familiar with under the guardianship of his disapproving CHANGE WORD HERE mother. In Nemo’s eyes, he’d been provided with a fresh start, and he intended to seize the opportunity.

However, this determination was quickly extinguished prior to his arrival at the school, for it was during his first year of his education that Nemo had learned of the inconsistency of his ability, and of his dependency on the future. With no help other than the supportive letters that he’d received from his father once a month, and the advice that his Divination Professor had to offer the lad, Nemo had begun to struggle. So long as his precognition continued to waver in such a way, Nemo faced the cycles of depression and hypomania – a truth that heavily affected his grades and his social life.

During his later years at Hogwarts' Nemo learned of his dueling skills. While participating in his very first lesson in Hogwarts' extra curricular Dueling Club against a fellow Gryffindor, Nemo had put to use the hexes that he'd learned of in his Deference Against the Dark Arts classes. Nemo's addiction to dueling and his decision to become an auror for the Ministry of Magic followed this revaluation / newfound passion.

   After Hogwarts: Having lost both his mother and father in his final year at Hogwarts, Nemo was left with nothing more than an insignificant inheritance, and the money that he'd made predicting the futures of his peers during his time spent at Hogwarts. Nemo had no more to spend on survival than the cost of (the makings of) an improvised Fortune Teller's tent, which he positioned along the outskirts of Hogsmeade, and a brief stay at a muggle motel in London. For two months, Nemo had resided in that motel room as though it were his home, until he had exhausted his funds and was forced to relocate.

Prior to being accepted as an auror for the Ministry of Magic (& a few years later, working his way up with nothing more than time, hard work & dedication to serving the Ministry, Head Auror) Nemo was provided with the opportunity to pull himself up and out of his state of poverty. For a year, he had lived and slept in that tent, depending entirely on the money of those who would occasionally stop by and request a reading - which, he would fake, due to his inability to simply conjure a true prophecy out of a hat whenever he pleased. Despite the fact that his job at the Ministry did not pay much, it certainly brought in more money that the former, and it was then that Nemo was able to pay of several months' rent for a dank room in The Leaky Cauldron.

As a result of an evening spent with Jack Dyllan playing "Ten Fingers" and later challenging all those present in the Leaky Cauldron to a duel based on the premise that the pair were Death Eaters, Nemo was evicted from his apartment on the second floor of the pub and was banned from setting foot there again. And after three months of withstanding the hardships of living out of The Source, Nemo sought out a new place of residence by bringing his troubles to Jack, who agreed to house him for as long as he needed (or until she'd grown tired of him).

Additionally, over time - as a result of the number of times that Nemo has been healed / entirely reconstructed by magic means - Nemo has been made particularly immune (an almost impossible tolerance for a mere man) to methods of intoxication, i.e. alcohol, drugs, and droughts all take notably higher doses to properly affect Nemo. He has been physically numbed to the influence of such substances unless take in amounts big enough to kill an elephant, as it were.
