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.

Post by Sabriel Gardinier Sun Oct 30, 2011 12:15 am

(*Note: Sabriel's relationship with his father will not be brought up much. Alluded to, yes, but Sabriel is not an angsty person. He deals with his harsher experience with a kind of protective detachment. Or, at the very least, he steels his mind and doesn't provide much reaction to his negative experiences. Thaanxxx! ^_^)

Spoiler:

KEY POINTS:
  • Sabriel is a seer
  • He is a Ravenclaw
  • He is a he; Sabriel is part-Veela, which gives him his feminine appearance
  • His grandfather was a Death Eater/Seer, his father is an Auror
  • Sabriel has a quiet, gentle disposition, but can be quite snarky and sarcastic if the mood permits it.
  • Currently needs a date for the Yule Ball *winkwink*

    GENERAL APPEARANCE
    Sabriel inherited his pale skin, hair, and overly feminine features from his mother, a Half-Veela. He occasionally wears his hair loose, but takes to tying it into a ponytail close to his scalp in an effort to appear more masculine. Despite it all, his bang and forelocks continue to frame his heart-shaped face, giving him a softer disposition. He has light to medium-gray eyes, with long black lashes. His lips are unusually full.

    Sabriel likes loose-fitting clothes. When not in his robes, he makes use of a wardrobe consisting of baggy shirts and pants. Despite having a delicate body, Sabriel is not gangly or overly thin. He possesses a healthy amount of fat deriving from a very controlled diet and exercise routine.

    GOALS
    More than anything Sabriel wants to please his father, Ferris. The man has tormented him for most of his life, constantly rebuking his son due to his appearance. Ferris, a very traditional man, does not take kindly to his only son resembling his mother more so than his father. His derisive comments only serve to destroy Sabriel's self esteem and tear him down. And yet, Sabriel claws and claws, attempting to win the man's favor.

    Sabriel is unsure of what career he would like to take, be it an Auror or medic, but he is determined to become something great and finally live up to his father and mother's expectations. First and foremost, he aspires to get nigh-perfect grades. Among his academic aspirations, he is also struggling to find a date to the Yule-ball.

    QUIRKS
    - Never uses conjunctions (they're, I've, she'd) when he speaks
    He cannot sleep comfortably without having a hot bath beforehand, complete with minerals and oils
    - When under a fever, he always sings to himself, even when asleep
    - Dressing in tight clothing gives him a stilted, halting gait
    - Sabriel likes to eat and read. No, in fact, he can't read unless he's eating, and he can't eat unless he's reading

    BOGGART
    The dead bodies of his family

    PATRONUS
    As a young child, he was often very sick. His mother would pour him a hot bath, then snuggle with him by a fire. She would sing to him and whisper sweet nothings. To this very day, Sabriel recalls her warmth and sensitivity. He had never felt his safest then.

    DEMENTOR
    - Sabriel witnessed of the brutal murder of his grandfather by a Death Eater when he was six, which prompted the family to flee France and move to England.
    - His father is constantly putting him down because of his appearance and personality. Since his 1st year, the man has gotten physical with the abuse.

    VERITASERUM
    - His father was physically abusive to him for three years, but he's never told anyone.
    - Wishes he was never part Veela
    - He knows that his grandfather was a Death Eater, and was put to death by another.

    MIRROR OF ERISED
    Sabriel sees himself a man, physically fit and masculine despite having long hair. Gone is his girlish face and limbs, he is a proud Auror/warrior! Sabriel is surrounded by trophies. Nearby, his father kneels and praises him, crying tears of happiness.

    PERSONALITY
    Emotionally vulnerable and distant, Sabriel spends most of his time away from social contact and delving deep into literature and arts. To the few friends he is able to make, he is quite kind and helpful. To close friends and sisters, it's as if his heavy cloak of oppression is lifted. He can be quite teasing and funny.If you were to delve into his mind, Sabriel is quite humorous and snarky. He enjoys taking mental notes of irony and approaches conflict with mild irritation.

    Most make note of his almost adorable obsession with Quidditch, despite being unwilling to participate in the sport itself.

    Sabriel constantly belittles himself due to years of mental and emotional put-downs by his father. He has little faith in his overall ability and intelligence (but experiences these emotions with a sense of detachment, not depressive self-pity, as a kind of mechanism for coping with it). Since he started school, he's been trying to prove his ability to both himself and his father. Even so, he yearns for moments where he can focus on anything but the man, and so Hogwarts has become a kind of sanctuary for him.

    Sabriel is used to having every need catered to him. He sometimes comes off as a little dim-witted when it comes to fending for himself. It's taken him some time to get used to Hogwart's independent lifestyle, but finds himself having to reapply his self-reliance each autumn. It doesn't bother him so much.

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


    Early Years
    Sabriel was born prematurely at home, as his mother was put on bed rest due to complications. There was great surprise upon discovery that he was male. Males with Veela blood are rare, and his birth was greatly anticipated due to the conflicts that had arrived. For a moment, he was very tiny and fragile (his father needed to use magic to help him breathe and eat), but he quickly got over it and grew chubby and bright-eyed.

    Although Sabriel never really outgrew his sickliness, Ferris was delighted to finally have a son. As the years went by, he spent a lot of time with Sabriel, trying to get him interested in sports among other things from an early age.

    When Sabriel was six and had just gotten his Firebolt, he and his sister Marianne went to visit their grandparents. Marianne went out shopping with Bellrose shortly after their arrival and left Sabriel and his grandfather to their own devices. They were in the middle of a game of checkers when Theodore suddenly grew tense. He hid Sabriel in a dark vent, even placing a silencing spell on him. It was from this vantage point that Sabriel watched a Death Eater emerge seemingly from the shadows and eviscerate his grandfather on the spot. No 'Avada Kadevra'.

    After this occurred, a mortified Sabriel heard the Death Eater call him a traitor, and proceed to erect a skull in the sky before vanishing once more.

    Marianne and Dominique returned upon news of the skull, and were relieved to find Sabriel alive. The Gardinier family quickly make plans to relocate to England. There, life started again, but Sabriel is never able to wipe the murder from his mind. It was during this time his behavior closed and he grew more interested in literature and creative arts. He had tutors and nurses around the clock that paid more attention to him than his parents.

    As the years went by, Ferris became increasingly bitter. Years of raising only girls made Ferris deeply wish for a boy, but now that he had one, it seemed no different. The son he always wanted seemed to grow more 'feminine' each day, and despite the boy's obvious fixation with Quidditch, Ferris found with heavy disappointment that Sabriel was absolutely terrified of heights and couldn't even walk for half a mile without getting exhausted.

    Ferris would complain to Belrose, believing it was her fault. He claimed to detest everything about their child, from the boy's long hair to his girlish features. From Sabriel's gentle mannerisms to his light, lilting voice. Sabriel overheard sometimes, but it hardly mattered because, eventually, Ferris's ridicule grew less private and he began insulting Sabriel directly.


    Hogwarts Years
    When he returned home from his 1st year of school, Ferris would yank his hair, snatch him, shove him and has started to hit him during his Third Year. Ferris forced him to learn martial arts and exercise daily, even when he wasn't feeling well. He dominated Sabriel's time and energy; he rarely allowed Sabriel time to himself, but often lashed out whenever the boy's presence became intolerable for him. Sometimes Sabriel collapsed from the strain.

    Through everything, his mother turned a blind eye. Before Sabriel got old enough, Ferris directed his frustrations toward her. The man was her fourth husband; she did not want to lose yet another relationship. She loved her son, but all she does is nurse his wounds, physical and mental.

    Aside from Ferris's treatment, Sabriel tried to avoid the smothering he usually got from his grandmothers and sisters. Privately, he enjoyed it because it made him feel loved, but deep inside he did not want to depend on their affections to feel good about himself.

    At school, he would busy himself with schoolwork, avoiding the constant eyes of Death Eaters. He liked to find the brightest corner of the library to study, especially in early September, when the air was lukewarm and he could open the window for a breeze. He feels uncomfortable in the school swarming with the Death Eaters. Belrose has made it clear that she wants to pull him out once he completes his Fourth Year, but Sabriel is still inclined to stay.

    Adulthood
    Sabriel graduates Hogwarts and decides to become an Auror and succeeds. He still, however, learns Botany/Herbology on the side.

    THEODORE RUPPET

    Spoiler:
    Sabriel's grandfather, Theodore Ruppet, has seer powers, which skipped a generation and passed on to Sabriel. He worked for the Dark Lord, but started to feel guilt for his actions, as he'd become more sentimental with age. His predictions grew vaguer and vaguer, until he finally went into hiding and masqueraded as the husband/slave of a powerful Veela, Dominique.

    He lived peacefully for a while, but during his grandson's visit, he sensed peril. Closing Sabriel in the vent, Theodore was just in time to confront the Death Eater that stole into the mansion. The Death Eater killed him and fled, leaving his grandson thoroughly traumatized.

PURPOSE OF CHARACTER
To be of use anywhere he is needed. Also for the simple RP experience.

RP SAMPLE:
Spoiler:
Sabriel enjoyed fiction. He found passion in the fantastical lands that implored his imagination, and the rich, complicated imagery that swept him off to vast worlds of both magical and simplistic tones. He also amused himself with muggle literature. And, for gripping moments, he felt entirely exposed. He had to wonder if the muggles were as mundane as the Ministry made them out to be. Tales of dragons, unicorns, centaurs and even wizards and witches themselves danced on the pages with alarming precision and often enveloped him with a sense of deja'vu.

This warrior before him seemed to be extracted from a tall tale. Meaty, burly upper arms. A stocky, unyielding frame. Black, beady eyes. Sabriel could never have imagined such monstrosity to be a student, much less one in his own Year. But there he stood, in flesh, and gripping his Firebolt in determined fingers. They weren't even sweating. He couldn't help but feel disappointed; there this boy was, caught red-handed trying to rob him, and he did not even have the audacity to feel apprehension, at the very least.

"I thought you were just being friendly," said Sabriel. He was calm, as he normally was. (He couldn't recall a time at all where he felt genuine anger), "when you asked what kind of broom that was. But honestly, if you were going to steal it, at least take the time to observe my schedule. I always return to my dormitory after Transfiguration. Or are you confident that you will escape with my Firebolt whether I catch you here or not?"

The boy--Sabriel aptly dubbed him 'Golem'--chuckled. It was not a pretty sound. Sabriel sighed once the boy started speaking; he really hated this. All he wanted was to read, just a quick book along with a snack. Was that too much to ask? But yet there is an interruption afoot -- and not a very pretty one. He knew he would never be able to stop the boy physically. And although his wand was a mere 'flick' away, he doubted he would be able to correctly conjure a spell ..

"Che!" 'Golem' scoffed rather disgustingly. "You're talking an awful lot more than you do usually. What? Nervous? You little punk, why not head up to the girl's dormitory and put on a dress?" He laughed loudly then. The punchline was lost on Sabriel himself. Discomfort and exasperation swelled inside him. Unpleasant memories threatened to break his careful mask and present to the bully his distress.

The solution was agonizingly simple. Sabriel raised his wand with a trembling hand. "Accio, broom!"

The broom flew into his outstretched fingers, leaving the bully looking befuddled.

"Immobulus!" 'Golem's' hand stopped in mid-stretch. Sabriel murmured a quiet apology, before stepping forward. It took all his strength, but he was finally able to drag the despondent 4th Year outside the dormitory, an event that left him winded with an aching chest.

From the safety of the cracked door, Sabriel mumbled a counter-spell to negate the effects, slammed the door shut behind him, and locked it. With at least fifteen more minutes to spare, Sabriel slunk over to his bed and allowed himself this brief time of peace, still clutching the Firebolt protectively.

Awww thanks so much! I put a lot of concentration into him, but I was worried he wouldn't get accepted for a number of reasons. Going to start right away.

excellent. BTW, if you're looking for characters to rp with, I have mostly grads, but I have several aurors. One is a trainer of aurors. Brian. His best friend and chief of staff is Angus. Brian's wife is Khaat--my main character. She likes to adopt or become legal guardian for characters who have the character makeup that yours does ROFL!! Her father is a powerful wizard here and he is the brother of Remus Lupin.

I only have 1 student character, Andrew Diamond. He's 13, and Robert Lupin--Khaat's dad--is his guardian.

Let me know if you want to RP.


OH!! One little thing. Please make your user name the same as your character name. That makes things infinitely easier for us. Thanks!!! If you need help, I can fix that for you.

-- Lol!!!! Excellent! You'll be the first. I suppose I'll start either tonight or tomorrow morning. I'm so excited but I'm also a little nervous. XDD . What do you think? If we're going to RP, I have no problem having Sabriel meet Angus or Khaat!

And yes, I also changed my username after I read the rest of the rules. It is now "Sabriel Gardinier". Middle name doesn't have to be included, right?

You are correct. Middle name does not have to be included.


Khaat would be great. She's one of the "good guys" but our evil wizard who has commandeered the Minister of Magic position has her on the top of the most wanted list. (Personally, I think he's just afraid of her. ROFL!!) I'll make a thread someplace where it would be unlikely for her to be found and post it here for you.

Does that work?
