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!

Wakefield, Zane 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.

Wakefield, Zane William_moseley_4_by_fcmartinez-d37zdox

Zane Richard Wakefield


    FULL NAME: Zane Richard Wakefield


    AGE: 16

    ALLEGIANCE: Not Sure Yet (Leaning towards being a spy for the "light" side against the "dark")

    HOGWARTS HOUSE: Slytherin, Ravenclaw

    CLASSES: Potions, Transfiguration

    WAND: Ash, unicorn hair, 12 inches and 3/4, slightly pliable.

    PLAY BY: William Moseley


    HAIR COLOUR: Blonde

    EYE COLOUR: Blue-grey


    BODY BUILD: Built, but not overly.

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Zane is rather tall for his age, and muscled - though he doesn't spend loads of time working on it. He'll work out now and then, but isn't too obsessed with it. Overall, he's quite fit (in the slang sense, and the body health sense). His blonde hair is cut short always. He's got blue-grey eyes, and light skin that tends to tan rather than burn. He's got a few freckles here and there, including on his neck (see picture). He is almost always dressed up somewhat - not talking your full suit wearing type of guy, at least not on usual days, but never looks a mess. He likes dressy-looking shoes over sneakers, and polos over tshirts. He would never wear a hoodie - instead preferring one of the more dressy jackets. He has a series of smiles (some saved for certain people he doesn't consider to be too annoying to handle. He's got your usual smirk, a joking sneer, and some people may end up getting his actual smile, while some girls may get his lopsided grin if he likes them enough)


    1. He's got a sharp tongue which he isn't afraid to dish out to anyone who gets on his bad side
    2. Zane can stop people with a glare, and see through people pretty easily.
    3. He's intelligent, so it makes school work not a big deal for him.
    4. He's good at memorizing things and thinking through problems quickly
    5. It really takes quite a bit to make him angry at someone/ to get on his bad side, because he's good at hiding his emotions. (aka, he's closed off to most people)

    1. People who aren't intimidated by him unnerve him. Especially girls.
    2. He sometimes get lost in thought when he's concerned/anxious/worried about something
    3. Impulsive and Reckless when he's angry
    4. Expressing Emotions
    5. If he's truly friends with someone, he's extremely protective, which sometimes gets him into trouble.

    1. Quidditch
    2. Learning new things
    3. Pushing himself and his friends to succeed
    4. Being outdoors
    5. His Sister Brianna
    6. Writing

    1. Overly Dramatic people (especially girls)
    2. Liars/Pretenders/Try-Hards
    3. Failure
    4. Being Bored
    5. Bad Weather (Rainy days, snow storms)
    6. The rest of his family besides Brianna

    1. Secure a position in the Ministry after Hogwarts
    2. To get over his family issues and to the right thing sometimes
    3. Reunite his family somehow

    1. Flying when he's upset
    2. He writes to his sister about anything and everything just to have something to send her
    3. Ignoring problems that are staring him in the face just to not have to get upset or deal with them.

    1. Pinches the bridge of his nose when he's frustrated
    2. Rubs the back of his neck when he's feeling awkward (not too often. But it does happen)

    BOGGART: His father will ruin his plans of going to work at the Ministry

    PATRONUS: The times he took Brianna out to get away from their family and to keep her happy.

    DEMENTOR: The day his parents realized Brianna is a squib (see history)

    VERITASERUM: If he's really into a girl, he'd do just about anything (including using his hidden talent of singing, though he wouldn't show it to just anyone)

    MIRROR OF ERISED: To prove that he's not totally a bad guy

    PERSONALITY: Because of his family problems, he's really closed off, but it takes a lot to get him angry. He can handle most people by either ignoring the problem, or closing off his emotions. Once someone has done something to seriously make him angry, he's not afraid to be an arse. He has brief moments of reprieve which he actually enjoys. Usually, if he's frustrated, he'd go flying to just feel free of it for a bit. He doesn't mention his family unless he trusts someone with everything.
    When it comes to people he actually gets along with or likes, he's actually very personable. But it takes a lot to get through his shell and into the more pleasant interior.
    He can be a bit of a know-it-all in certain subjects, and tries his best in all of them. He has to do well if he's going to get that job at the Ministry on his own. He wouldn't ever ask his father for help, not that his father would be pleased with his career choice.


    FATHER: Richard Wakefield (yes, Zane was partly named for him)

    MOTHER: Natasha Wakefield (née Raine)

    SIBLING/S: Younger sister, Brianna (squib)

    OTHER: They're not really close to anyone. Or Zane isn't anyway. He can't stand the lot of them.

    BLOOD STATUS: Pureblood

    RACE: Human

    SOCIAL STATUS: Upper-Middle

    PET/S: Owl named Zebulon (Pretentious? Yes. Yes it is. His father named it, thank you.)

    OTHER POSSESSIONS: The broom he got as a birthday present when he was 14, the "book" Brianna wrote him


    Early Years: Zane was born into the Wakefield family as the eldest son of a couple of wizards who were very serious about him not being a fan of Muggles or the like. Zane honestly didn't care where a person came from. Especially after Brianna was born, and ended up a squib. Zane wondered for a while if his mum had had an affair or something, since he thought it odd that two wizards would have a child who couldn't do magic. He, of course, never asked. His parents were embarrassed of her (for obvious reasons if you knew them). Zane quickly started to be unable to stand any of his relatives who tried to hide her from everyone. She's only two years behind him, but attends a boarding school in Scotland, and she's almost never spoken about. The day his parents found out she was a squib, her father spoke of "getting rid of her" which made Zane furious, and he decided to be her protector and rarely left her alone.

    Hogwarts Years: When Zane went to Hogwarts, he made sure Brianna went off to school as well, and, knowing it would drive his parents crazy, Zane told them he'd find a Muggle to marry if they ever hurt her. Not exactly a low blow in his opinion, but he knew they would go mental over it. If he found someone he wanted to marry, by Merlin he'd do it regardless of what they thought.
    Over the years, he began to realize that his goal in life had nothing to do with the Dark Wizards. Rather, he wants to work at the Ministry

    Adulthood: N/A



    RP EXPERIENCE: 4 years

    HOW YOU FOUND US: A friend used to be on this site and mentioned it.

First, welcome to PA! Just a question about your app. I can see where it would be sort of a toss up between Slytherin and Ravenclaw. But--if you are thinking you might want him to lean more away from dark arts, etc., and you don't mention much about him placing much value on tradition and blood purity, etc., he seems like he might be a better fit into Ravenclaw unless you really want him to be a Slytherin. If you want him to be a Slytherin for some particular reason, then I suggest you might "polish" him a bit or decide that he's going to have a very tough time fitting into Slytherin house.

It was funny - as I wrote him, Zane sort of changed on me xD In my head he was supposed to turn out as a Slytherin. But I think it would be better if he was just a very cut off Ravenclaw who was expected to be Slytherin but wasn't.

I actually think that would work very well for him. I've had apps that sorta went like that. I originally saw them as one way, but the character almost seemed to frame themselves once I got started. Sometimes that works well. In this case, I think it will be interesting to see what you end up doing with him (or, rather, what you end up allowing him to do) once you start writing with him.

At any rate, accepted and sorted into Ravenclaw.
