Welcome to Potter’s Army

Welcome to Potter's Army

We have been a Harry Potter Roleplaying site since 2007. If you're an old member we hope you come check out the discord link provided below. And if you're looking for a new roleplaying site, well, we're a little inactive. But every once and a while nostalgia sets in and a few of our alumni members will revisit the old stomping grounds and post together. Remember to stay safe out there. And please feel free to drop a line whenever!


What’s Happening?
Since every few months or so a few of our old members get the inspiration to revisit their old stomping grounds we have decided to keep PA open as a place to revisit old threads and start new ones devoid of any serious overarching plot or setting. Take this time to start any of those really weird threads you never got to make with old friends and make them now! Just remember to come say hello in the chatbox below or in the discord. Links have been provided in the "Comings and Goings" forum as well as the welcome widget above.

    PLAY BY: Joe Brooks


    HAIR COLOR: honey blond

    EYE COLOR: brown

    HEIGHT: 5'11"

    BODY TYPE: slender, lithe and athletic

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Byron is tall and extremely athletic. He likes to go on long walks and long runs. His body has been cultivated by his father for an agile Quidditch player. This comes from persistent training from Ludo Bagman, who had insisted that a baby could never be too young to ride a broom. With his interests lying elsewhere rather than on appearances, Byron is hardly well-dressed. His hair takes the form of whatever a night of sleep should produce, leaving it a little unpredictable and unruly. Still, the boy's mother ensures that he gets a good trimming as soon as he returns home from end of school terms, and the day before he heads back off to school. Byron finds that school robes are really troublesome to be really active in, and seizes any chance to ditch them for some good old t-shirt and jeans. In the boy's wardrobe, one will find a decent array of t-shirt, jeans, jumpers, and caps - all very practical stuffs. For his feet, Byron prefers to wear the same old sneakers until it starts to get a little worn-out. His only other pair of shoes is a pair of black formal dress shoes. Around his neck, Byron wears a dog chain that says FORTITUDO PRODO LAURUS.


    excellent with animals, magical and non-magical
    excels at Defense Against the Dark Arts
    has his father's talent at Quidditch
    very musically-inclined
    is very athletic and team-oriented
    passionately and blindly brave
    easy-going and optimistic

    brash and impulsive, which makes him not think before he acts
    struggles with school work, especially due to his lack of diligence
    has the inability to lie
    lets his lust control him; lack of control over it
    easily restless, always looking for thrills, and then getting into trouble for them
    suffers from regrets because of a very lively conscience

    playing and watching Quidditch
    boasting about his father's Quidditch glory days

    music, and strumming on his guitar, which he sometimes charms to play on its own; sometimes, he writes music, but is almost too shy to share them
    animals, magical and non-magical
    Defense against the Dark Arts
    funny girls

    cunning Slytherins and people who look down on halfbloods and muggleborns, although he is pureblood himself

    people who are not open-minded; or elitists
    dressing up, especially when he has to, for formal events
    exams; he dreads the OWLs and NEWTs
    rules of any kind

    To play Quidditch at a world-stage, hopefully as a professional player for the Wimbourne Wasps
    To share his musical talent and be appreciated for it
    To help put an end to the wizarding battles

    likes to mess up his hair; neatness disturbs him
    always has a tune in his head which he hums, both deliberately and absent-mindedly
    scratches his chin whenever he is thinking
    pretends to be his father at every Quidditch game he plays
    finger-drums whenever he is bored or restless

    BOGGART: whore-houses

    PATRONUS: his first kiss

    DEMENTOR: a close encounter with snakes on a trip-gone-wrong to an animal sanctuary

    VERITASERUM: that his father visits hookers and is not opposed to his son doing the same, resulting in Byron giving his first experience to a hooker at age fourteen, and his subsequent fall to that secret lifestyle

    MIRROR OF ERISED: Byron sees himself in the colors of the Wimbourne Wasps, a captain of the team, and being awarded Player of the Decade. He also sees a happy family with many children of his own.

    PERSONALITY: Byron is not a passive character. He is always the action itself, or seeking for an action to be involved with. He is easily restless. Not much of a thinker, the boy lives for physical experiences. He is not afraid of injuries or death itself, partly from his optimism, but chiefly from his passionate bravery. Byron is a very sincere person. He is fiercely loyal to his friends and his family, and would defend them to no end. Despite his efforts on being open-minded, Byron finds it incredibly difficult to change his opinions of someone once the impression is soiled. This stems from the fact that he is very stubborn because he holds his own opinions in high regard. As such, he is slightly proud, or selectively so. Byron likes to befriend as many people as he can. He is especially drawn to people who wear their personality on their sleeves because he finds them easy to trust, and therefore, easier to form a stable friendship with. When challenged, Byron usually takes the risk and steps up to it, no matter how silly one might tell him it will be. He likes to prove others wrong, but does get hurt from being so impulsive. Besides this, Byron is also someone who trusts his gut feelings and who is guided by a conscience.


    FATHER: Ludovic Bagman. A pureblood, he is a former beater for the Wimbourne Wasps and the English national team. He has also once headed the Department of Magical Games and Sports. Bagman spent years in hiding from people who were after him for the debts he owed. He had managed to marry a woman from a wealthy pureblood family that, ironically, provides financial advice for troubled wizards. The marriage took place despite disapproval from the Roths, but who, for their daugher's sake, helped to clear Bagman's debts.

    MOTHER: Aimee Roths. A pureblood witch who has been trained for, and is currently working, for the Roths business. Despite her family's wealth, her finances are not given, but earned, because of her refusal to obey her father and went ahead to marry Ludo Bagman anyway. She is the main breadwinner of the Bagman family, as Ludo dabbles with freelance work and odd jobs to contribute, but still earns less than her.

    SIBLING(S): a sister

    OTHER: other Bagmans and Roths

    BLOOD STATUS: Pureblood

    RACE: Human

    SOCIAL STATUS: Middle Class

    a Mongolian Gerbil

    a Nimbus 2000

    a Wimbourne Wasps robe, specially done for him as a favor procured by his father
    a dog-tag, engraved with the Gryffindor motto, given to him by his grandfather Roths
    a charmed, mahogany guitar


    Early Years:
    Byron was the first physical product of love between Ludo Bagman and Aimee Roths. At that time, they had just settled into a cosy apartment at an artist enclave near the city of Glasgow. Ludo was especially proud to be given a son, as he already had brief plans on training a boy up to be like himself. A narcissistic man, he has consciously worked on becoming the vision of a hero to his son's eyes. Aimee was simply happy to have a healthy child, and pleased at Ludo's involvement with his son. A year after his birth, Byron found himself an older brother to a girl who became mother's favorite, just as he had easily become daddy's boy.As soon as Byron was healthy to smell the outdoors, Ludo had secured the boy to himself and taken him on frequent rides on his broom, much to the displeasure and constant naggings of Aimee. Ludo did not care whether it was allowed or not, but he began to teach Byron how to fly with a broomstick ever since the boy hit the age of four. Ludo had also began to bring his boy to every Quidditch World Cup.

    Hogwarts Years:
    Under Ludo's influence, Byron has very advanced Qudditch skills for his age. However, he found himself lagging behind in his classes when he stepped into Hogwarts. This is, however, dominantly due to the lack of interest and therefore the lack of motivation to study. Byron has made a lot of friends easily, and he counts Roxanne Weasley as his best one. Together, they enlisted themselves to Potter's Army. Byron thoroughly enjoys school, above all, because of Quidditch. He was recruited into the Gryffindor team as soon as he tried out, although it can get annoying when he goes on and on in his boast of his father's skills, expecting that others should be interested too.

    A particularly life-changing experience took place when Byron was fourteen, although in a bad way. At this time, Ludo Bagman was hardly at home, claiming to be busy with the odd jobs that he was juggling. Still, he loved his son and never exactly stayed away long from Byron. Aimee, however, complained, and the fights began when Byron was thirteen. Both his sister and he suffered from the parents fighting, and they will often hide together in her room so that they do not have to be alone whenever the house would shake with violent shouts. When Byron came home from his first term of Fourth Year at school, he expected the usual, to spend a lot of time with father over the summer. This, Ludo did not fail his son. However, for a man who disregards rules, he allowed his son to tag along when he visited a dodgy whorehouse, telling Byron that it was a beautiful place that he had found a few years ago. The boy was curious and, in accordance to the worship he had for his father, followed suit. Byron lost his virginity that night, with the beginning of that leading to a shameful addiction that the boy was plunged into. Ludo continued to bring his son along for visits and never opposed to anyone or anything that tried to seduce his son because he himself would be somewhere alone with someone else in that house. And drunk, at that. Despite the shame that haunts Byron, he is having difficulties getting himself out of this habit which even his mother and sister is clueless about.

    Byron is currently looking forward to his fifth year at Hogwarts.
