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.

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Edward has a very changeable appearance. As a former werewolf slayer, he knows how to dress and appear intimidating if he has to, how to dress and act to blend in and disappear, and how to dress to be charming and impressive. When he doesn't have to pay attention to those variables, Edward chooses casual slacks and shirts. He normally wears longsleeved shirts that he rolls up the sleeves on to 3/4 sleeves.

    "Greyback" minded werewolves
    Taking anyone with him when he works.
    Luxury for appearance's sake--i.e, overly done.
    Most rock and roll music
    Cold, damp weather
    Cowards
    Liars
    Traitors
    Lazy people
    Stupidity--ignorance is understandable. Stupidity is nearly unforgiveable



    GOALS:
    A quiet life in his Tuscan villa by the sea
    As many grandchildren and great grandchildren as possible, living as close as possible so he can spoil them.
    An occasional bit of work to keep his mind and body active

    QUIRKS: Edward is a hopeless insomniac. He seems to run on nothing but catnaps. (Thats not quite true but it often looks like it.) He is always up just before sunrise--like an internal alarm clock that gets him up. He prefers to begin his day with a cup of Italian roast coffee outside watching the sunrise, and prefers that few minutes alone to start his day. He is amazingly impatient with people who act childish and can often be curt to them, without intending to be as rude as he sometimes comes across. He has a straw fedora that he always, always wears when working in his garden.


    BOGGART: Edward's greatest fear is that something disasterous would happen to one of his children or grandchildren that he might not be able to stop or prevent.

    PATRONUS: His beautiful wife. Anything about his beautiful wife. His patronus is a Kodiac bear.

    DEMENTOR: The first case he worked as a young auror. His mentoring partner was slaughtered by a young Fenrir Greyback, and Edward was helpless to stop it. The memory of the savagery of that death has always haunted Edward, and although he has always known that hunting werewolves could end up the same way for him, it merely fueled his anger to be able to take those risks in order to hunt down the "out of control' werewolves.

    VERITASERUM: He has resolved that his work will never be finished until Fenrir Greyback is dead

    MIRROR OF ERISED: To always be healthy enough that his life still has purpose. To be able to still work and still be of use to others and to never be a burden in his later years to anyone.

    PERSONALITY: Edward is, largely, a self made man. He gained what he has by decades of being willing to go and do what no other wizard would go and do. He has seen a great deal of pleasure and far too many horrors for him to want to recount them anymore. He is beyond needing drama in his life to be happy, although a periodic challenge to stay fresh is welcome. Standing and defending those he loves isn't even a thing to debate about. Its just how it is. He prefers life in his enormous Tuscan compound with his family closeby. When he's not working, he can be found either in his garden tending the plants, or sitting in the courtyard with a classical book and a glass of exquisite Tuscan wine. He prefers time with family as to anything else and loves the simple life--meals of a few simple ingredients put together really well, sitting and watching the stars at night, and talking and laughing with those he loves. Because of the nature of the werewolf hunting work, he keeps far more to himself than he ever reveals. It is not intentional secret keeping. Its just the way he thinks and behaves now.

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


    Early Years: Edward was raised in rural southern England, and was the youngest of five. His father was a muggle diplomat and served in Italy. His mother was a gifted seer and was working at a Venician glassworks gallery his father met her. By the time she felt safe to disclose her magical abilities, Cyril already loved the Italian woman so dearly, he simply accepted it and all of its consequences. Edward was born at Christmastime just a few days before his parents' wedding anniversary. Edward was 'supposed' to be born in England, but his mother went into premature labor during a trip back home to see her family for the holidays. Cyril kept quiet the fact that Edward was truly born Italian because he had it in his head that his son needed to be properly English. The rest of the children were appropriately born English. Edward was brought up being taught to be very disciplined and learned. His favorite toy was a set of antique tin soldiers that had been handed down to him by his muggle grandfather and had belonged to his great grandfather. He still has them. Edward started to develop his magical abilities by the time he was seven and when his Hogwarts letter came, it was actually a relief to his muggle father who had no clue as to what to do with the boy.

    Hogwarts Years: Edward was a natural born leader and seemed to have a great many friend without trying. He went to Hogwarts at the same time that Lucius Mafoy did, but had no significant interactions with him because he found Lucius to be disgusting to him. Edward's talents shone in Defense Against the Dark arts primarily and he was often out on the grounds either with his friends or alone practicing the spells he learned in class. The other area where Edwards talents strongly defined themselves was in Divination. Edward was a talented seer. His grades excelled in those two classes beyond all others. He played quidditch for one year, but dropped it after that because it took too much time from learning the DADA and divination skills he so hungered for. He often broke into the restricted section and read every DADA and divination related book he could get his hands on.

    Adulthood: Edward graduated from Hogwarts and returned to Tuscany where his parents were living by then. His mother introduced him to Caprise because she believed he needed a nice girl who had magical abiities. He was a bit put off by his mother's actions until he saw Caprise for the first time. Edward thought she was so stunningly beautiful that he was completely and utterly in love with her at first sight. He had to work a bit to get past his own awkwardness around her but once that passed, she found him to be tall, handsome, intelligent, strong, brave, and kind--everything she wanted. They were married when Edward turned 20. He and Caprice were married 50 years when she passed last year, in 2024, of heart disease. They had 6 children.

    Edward spent his working years, working alone as a werewolf slayer. He worked for the English and Italian ministries and was paid exceptionally well to hunt down dangerous and diseased werewolves and kill them. He never took anyone with him because the work was so dangerous. He made his home in Tuscany so that Caprise was close to her family in raising the children. His first significant investment was a huge piece of land on the Mediterranean coast. He built a villa there and put walls around it to protect his family and made it unplottable. The inside space has a garden, flowerbeds, a yard, a mammoth stone patio, with a pergola lined with grapevines, all very Tuscan and traditional.

    As his family aged, they built their own homes and extended the villa into a compound. Four of the children have villas on the compound corners, and two on the centers of the inland wall. Edward's is in the center of the seaside wall. The place is always full of life and family in a time honored Italian style. Edward's sons operate a sailing business, owning some luxury vessels that the wealthy hire out for trips and outings. Edward is a financial partner with them.

    It was Angus that introduced them to the Lupin family and drew Edward into having any interest in England again at all. He now has a place again in England but as of yet, he hasn't revealed to more than a precious few where it is. He comes and goes at will, and it seems that the dark times have risen again to need someone with his knowledge and skills.

    Edward has retired from werewolf hunting but not before creating a name of dread for himself.
