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.

Such a long application bounce

Rufus Winters Tv_sherlock_holmes_1



    FULL NAME: Rufus Winters


    AGE: 28




    PLAY BY:
    Benedict Cumberbatch


    Dark Brown


    Rufus is tall and quite slender, though not especially so and is stronger then he looks. He has no specific clothing choice, but usualy wears dark colors and common clothes in order to blend in as he often has to. He usually wears muggle clothes. His signature item he is almost always found wearing outside is a wool trench coat. Despite his lazy life style and lack of focus on appearance, Rufus manages to always look very clean and sophisticated.

    Rufus has curly dark brown hair that is usually quite untidy as he seldom makes an attempt to make it look otherwise. He has quite sharp features, thin lips and a hawk like nose.


    Extraordinarily logical and observant
    Can easily disguise himself
    Easily adaptable to any situation
    Quite good at duelling

    Not very emotional
    Loner, somewhat of a sociopath, though he can be sociable when he wants to be
    Bohemian lifestyle, smokes often, drinks often

    Music, particularly the piano and the violin
    Being flattered
    Someone as smart as him

    Stupid people
    Emotional people
    Socializing, most of the time
    Noise, most of the time
    Time wasting, again, most of the time
    having to follow a schedule

    To solve the ultimate mystery.

    He can talk for freakishly long without having to pause for breath, he usually talks and thinks at a pace that most cannot follow
    Often seen with a cigar or cigarette.

    Of losing his intelligence and becoming as slow thinking as the rest

    he memory would probably be something from his childhood

    Losing his mother, given up by his father

    To be ordinary.


    Rufus is very intelligent and analytical. He can figure out almost anything simply by looking at it or thinking about it for a few seconds. In short, he is very skilled at the art of deduction. He doesn't consider his skills extraordinary, but wonders why others can't see what he can. Still, he often likes to show off his intelligence. In this regard, he is egoistical, but does not seek fame or riches, simply content with others recognition of his abiliteis.

    He has a very bohemian lifestyle, likes taking drugs and hates folowing schedules. He likes logic puzzles, cross words and puzzles. Sometimes he likes to socialize as well, though often he prefers to be alone. When in the mood, he can be quite charming, but usually he comes off as quite detestable. Although Rufus has few friends, he does keep them quite close. He likes challenges more then anything, which is the main reason he became an auror. He enjoys misteries and challenges, and likes to win. He doesn't really care too much about good and evil and simply does what he wants to.

    OTHER: (Any other important family)

    BLOOD STATUS: Muggleborn

    RACE: Human

    SOCIAL STATUS: Well off

    Who needs owls? Rufus has a falcon

    (Completely Optional. Make sure the broomstick which you own makes sense. For example, Ron could never have owned a firebolt. For the full list of Brooms, check the ED)



    Early Years:
    ufus was born to John and Alice homes, the former a muggle and the latter a which, though her husband did not know that. To his horror, all three of his children were, in his terms, ‘freaks.’ They lived in a small village where everyone knew each other and Rufus was known as the quiet one, or the smart one due to his perfect record at school. At the age of nine though, his mother was murdered by some muggle and his father abandoned the three of them. Rufus was separated from his sisters and lived with foster parents until his eleventh birthday, when he was surprised to find out that he would be attending Hogwarts.

    Hogwarts Years:
    Throughout his Hogwarts years, Rufus excelled academically in most subjects. Arithmetics, Charms, Transfiguration and Potions were subjects he was far above the rest in, whereas he was relatively weak in Defense Against the Dark Arts and History of Magic - simply because of how boring it was. Socially, Rufus made few friends and seldom talked for most of his years. In later years he began to take more interest in people, and especially girls, so he became more involved socially.

    After graduating from Hogwarts with 9 NEWT’s, Rufus immediately entered Auror training, where he distinguished himself by passing most of the tests without even using his wand. His ambition to be an auror came mainly from his desire to face challenges rather than from a desire to do good. Also, Rufus figured that to stay on top of the law, it was best to be someone who enforced it. For the auror, he is more of a logician, a spy and a detective for the aurors. He can solve complicated tasks, get valuable information and identify any death eater no matter how well he is hiding. Also, he changes his name to his mothers surname shortly after graduating due to an intense dislike of his father.


    YOUR NAME: James

    RP EXPERIENCE: A few months

    HOW YOU FOUND US: A website


    To learn how to roleplay better.
    This character is based quite a bit on Sherlock Holmes particularly as depicted in BBC's Sherlock and the recent movies.

    From another sight

    Nicky sulked in his tent, the fight that turned into an all out battle had been a chance for him to prove that he could be as good of a leader as Tony Du Rone, Jason Grace, hell even Percy Jackson had all been. It had been a chance to prove that he was more than just a son of Jupiter, that he was a leader of men, even if he hated the responsibility, and he had failed. He had allowed his own prejudices to cloud his judgement. He had tried to write it off as a mistake anyone could make, but that hadn't helped that had only made him feel that much more guilty. He had tried praying at the Shrine of the Pantheon the Romans had erected in their encampment, but all he felt were the accusing eyes of his father saying, You weren't good enough. You must do better.

I would also like to know if Albus and James Potter will be open soon, because they were my first choice as characters but they are both taken.

He looks like he has potential to be very interesting in the auror pool. I am looking forward to reading his history! I really want to read his backstory!

Welcome to P.A., btw!

i don't have any means of really knowing if any particular character will be open in the future. those are generally up to the individual players who have claimed them. james has been inactive for sometime, so that one might come up first.

I'd like to see you rp this one for awhile first, but if you still want james and the old player has not taken him up again, i'll try to give you first chance at him. but, since i am not the only admin, nor am I the head admin, that's not always my choice.

Anyway, I'll accept you and sort you into grads.

At least use this character consistently for about... two weeks or so, get him established, then PM myself about what you'd like to do about James and Albus, and I'll see what's open.

Most likely though they will be available.

Also, moved.
