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!

WOOD, Beck Li9olo10

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.

Beck Wood
______________________________________________________________________________________

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

    FULL NAME: Beck Wood (no middle name)

    NICKNAMES: No nicknames but due to his preferred choice of clothing some people call him ‘freak’, though he doesn’t mind this

    AGE: just turned 15

    ALLEGIANCE: Neutral. He can never be bothered with choosing sides.

    HOGWARTS HOUSE: Slytherin, Ravenclaw

    CLASSES: CoMC, DADA, Charms, Potions

    WAND: Mahogany, dragon heartstring, 10”, quite rigid


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

    HAIR COLOR: Dark brown

    EYE COLOR: Dark brown

    HEIGHT: Always the average height for his age, though he has a bit of a growth spurt at 13

    BODY TYPE: He’s not over or under weight, and is fairly strong but doesn’t have very visible muscles. He could be considered a little lanky.

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: His choice of clothing is a black leather jacket with chains hanging from the arms and a single pocket on the left side, and black trousers with a thin chain as a makeshift belt. He hates to wear shoes and avoids it when necessary simply because he enjoys the freedom of walking without them, but will generally stick to a pair of black converse. He has a light complexion and dark brown eyes. He has dark brown hair almost to the length of his shoulder and fringe that flicks to the side, getting lower as it crosses his forward so that it covers to left side of his side eye. His right eyebrow is pierced. He wears your average cloak uniform when around Hogwarts.


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


    CHARACTER STRENGTHS AND SKILLS:
    Animagus form of a dark grey wolf, a tint of brown in the coat. There is a semi-circular cream ring on the top half of his muzzle and three of his four paws are cream.
    Excels in potions as he is fond of science in the muggle world and the mechanics are very similar.
    Due to his temperament, he is a great beater in quidditch.
    Despite how he acts, if you manage to get him to he is able to hold an intelligent conversation.

    CHARACTER WEAKNESSES:
    He is very lazy and laid back when it comes to actually learning spells so isn’t very good and saying them from memory and knowing what each one does.
    He doesn’t really like socialising with others so is often stuck in the background. This is when he becomes rowdy and when in this state of mind he finds it difficult to cast spells.
    Charms. He doesn’t have the patience required.

    CHARACTER LIKES:
    Animals; he likes how they can carry on with their lives without being bothered by too much. You’d never catch him fussing over a puppy, but he is more content in the company of them than people.
    Science in the muggle world
    Making fun of others, being sarcastic and cocky.
    Flying.

    CHARACTER DISLIKES:
    Charms
    Sweets, mostly
    Anything that requires silence or for him to stay still too long

    GOALS:
    He plans to follow the path of potions or study science with muggles rather than go into a very magical career. He’s content just going along in life how he is. However, the idea of remaining in his animagus form and living in the Forbidden Forest very much appeals to him.

    QUIRKS:
    He can often be found with the fingers of his right hand looped through the belt chain on his trousers and he fiddles with it a lot.
    If placed in strange situations, he’ll often bypass the strangeness of it and simply comment on the smaller, less important facts that are involved.

    BOGGART: A cage

    PATRONUS: The freedom he has to be who he is at Hogwarts; sitting by a tree beside the lake alone.

    DEMENTOR: A particularly bad argument after he came home with his eyebrow pierced. He didn’t speak with his parents for at least a week and they had grounded him fully.

    VERITASERUM: His animagus form. Many know he’s one but he rarely actually becomes the wolf.

    MIRROR OF ERISED: Stood in an open space beside his parents, who are being understanding and respectful of his wishes and who he is.

    PERSONALITY: Beck, to summarise things, is cocky and arrogant.. Most of the time he either doesn’t care or can’t be bothered, and he almost always has a snide remark to make about something. He respects those who act in a similar way to him, though rarely shows it as he’s too busy insulting them. He doesn’t like to be bothered and can often be seen lazing about the grounds. His opinion varies from person to person, though it’s often a bad one. He is rude most of the time, but this is generally just a result of his boredom (bit of a bad summary but it’s hard to describe him ^^’)


------------------------------------------------------------
FAMILY & POSSESSIONS
------------------------------------------------------------

    FATHER: Otrov Markus Wood

    MOTHER: Lucy Ann Wood

    SIBLING(S): N/A

    OTHER: N/A

    BLOOD STATUS: Half-blood (father is the wizard)

    RACE: Human

    SOCIAL STATUS: Middle Class bordering on wealthy

    PET(S): He didn’t want a pet but to stop his mother’s worrying he got an owl in his first year so he could write home. Eddie, average barn owl, actually proved to be quite useful and he has grown fairly attached to him.

    BROOMSTICK(): Silver Arrow


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


    Early Years: As a result of Beck’s mother being a muggle, Beck grew up attending an average primary school. Of course, the household used some magic and Beck was taught a few things and managed to pick other things up. He was left to his own devices often as a young kid and became bored easily. He would take the boredom out on other people, rudeness and sarcasm being his weapons, and often disobeyed rules his parents had loosely set. By the time he was old enough to go to Hogwarts, out of his parents’ control, it was too late for them to set him any orders or boundaries.

    Hogwarts Years: Beck’s previous years at school have, so far, gone reasonably well. He gets into trouble fairly often, mainly in Charms, and excels in Potions. In other subjects he is able to maintain a steady grade. True to his younger years, Beck stuck to himself right from the start. He was a student at Durmstrang before tranferring to Hogwarts for his fifth year. He is a little nervous about how this year is going to go for him, but keeps the nerves under control so nobody can tell.Adulthood: N/A



------------------------------------------------------------
BEHIND THE CHARACTER
------------------------------------------------------------


    YOUR NAME: Rusty

    RP EXPERIENCE: About half a year of daily rp-ing

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Typed in ‘good rp site’ (or something similar) and came up with the best 50 rpg’s

    OTHER CHARACTERS: N/A

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: To be able to rp on the site

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:
    Beck stood at the side of the lake, underneath the shaded shelter of the tree he had often sat beneath since his first year. It was the start to a new school year and lessons would start soon. He looked down to the black cloaks he was wearing; his school uniform, and scowled. It was just his luck that his first lessons back would be double charms with the hufflepuffs. There was rarely a stimulating conversation when they were involved. He heaved a sigh and turned to go back up to the castle when he spotted a figure in the corner of his vision. When he tilted his head, dark brown fringe slipping over his left eye where it grew longer so that half his vision was blocked, said figure waved. He rolled his eyes upon realising who it was.

    “Didn’t think you’d show your face here again after the accident last year,” he sneered, turning face on to the other teen.

Are you choosing a playby for this character? If so, who? Do you need some help with adding that piece?

Look to the left of this post, just under my name. Thats my playby. Its a celebrity I chose for my character to look like. Thats my avatar.

At the bottom of this post is a siggy (signature) its a larger picture of my playby. Its just a larger picture at the bottom of my post, sort of a pictorial signature of what I envision my character looking like.

Does that help?

May I introduce you to Ian O'brian? I think he may well fit your description. He does have blue eyes but that can be remedied with a few colour tweaks to the images for your graphics later on. Is he alright or shall I look for someone else?

It is perfectly fine not to have a play-by, and thus it's entirely your choice. As it is, I'll leave this topic where it is for discussion, but it's hardly something to hold your character up with.

Accepted and sorted into

Jess.
