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.

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



    STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES:
    Ead has flexible morals since early childhood and good tracking skills thanks to his family's travelling habits. He has a fair knowledge of Dark Arts and DaDa.
    His transfiguration abilities are all but good, while his understanding of how to take care of magical creatures only goes so far as how to get rid of them.

    LIKES & DISLIKES:
    Gabrömic likes History, both magical and Muggle, as well as classic literature (prominently, Machiavelli's books). Like many wizards, his favourite beverage is butter beer, and the favourite sport is Quidditch. He also found talking to Hogwarts's portraits highly amusing.
    In the other hand, Ead loathes any kind of authority. Likewise, he distrusts non-human beings (i.e. vampires, werewolves, demons, ...). He does not like Transfiguration or Astronomy.

    GOALS:
    In accordance with his hate for sapient non-human beings such as vampires, one of his goals after leaving his position in the Ministry is to help the Wizard World get rid of the 'useless things', getting as rich as possible in the process.
    As a freelancer monster hunter, Ead also intends to track down Voldemort and his followers' attempts at necromancy. What he will do with them, should he be successful, is yet to be decided.
    At long term, his goal is to take down the Ministry, or as he likes to call it 'the Empire'.

    HABITS & QUIRKS:

    • Looking sideways whilst talking;
    • Smiling ironically;
    • Humming Simon & Garfunkel songs at pubs;
    • Speaking a mix of English, French and Portuguese;
    • Rubbing hands together


    BOGGART:
    A lethifold that he once witnessed choke an entire camping site on their beds, outside Darwin, Australia.

    PATRONUS:
    A Ravenclaw girl named Melissa who, for many years, was his best friend at Hogwarts.
    They were engaged, but with the rise of the Death Eaters, the marriage had to be postponed - indefinitely.

    DEMENTOR:
    A trip to Central Europe, during school vacations. Several erklings attacked his family's caravan, after they bumped into their mother tree. Seeing an erkling scratch his father's eyes was, for many years, his worst memory.

    VERITASERUM: None (sorry, could find anything to fill this place :/)

    MIRROR OF ERISED:
    To see Melissa again.

    PERSONALITY:
    Ead is a quiet person, specially if in public. He does not want to be noticed, unless it is in fact necessary. When he does talk, usually in private, he has a self-confident and self-preserving nature. He enjoys steering people to the fates he himself designates.
    If he is in the presence of somebody more powerful than him, or more suitable to take his place in a risky situation, he will try to be charming and conquer their trust.
    Despite all this, he is not fundamentally evil. As he himself usually says "if tomorrow I wake up feeling like being a goodie, I'll distribute smiles, I'll kiss babies, I'll be the knight in shining armour and rescue the princess in distress; otherwise, I will hide, I will cheat and I will bribe my way out of any tight situation; if that does not work, I can always betray my employers; if none of these work, then yes, it's time to duel".

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



    Early Years:
    Ead Gabrömic was born son of an Arabian mother and a Welsh father. Needless to say, neither family consented in the relationship, resulting in the baby being sent back and forth across the families. In the middle of the mayhem, the baby's right arm was marked with a livestock branding iron by the Welsh.
    A hippie couple, Theo and Felicia, who had lost their own baby a few days before, kidnapped the child to protect him from further abuse (or so goes the story). They educated him with all the 'peace and love', with Felicia teaching the young boy to write and read, and Theo teaching him how to... eh... fish and fix their caravan!
    Coincidentally, Theo and Felicia were wizards, friends of the Lovegood family, so they weren't particularly taken aback when Ead first began to demonstrate magical abilities. Not very long after, a letter from Hogwarts was received. Ead was to join the school in following September.

    Hogwarts Years:
    Despite the peaceful environment wherein he had grown, Ead was selected to the all but merry House of Slytherin. He didn't not like the intrusive ways of some Slytherin, while his fellow classmates weren't particularly kind to him either. As a result, Ead spent most of the time with Ravenclaw students, discussing History of Magic (his favourite subject) or DaDa.
    In his third year, Ead met Melissa, a Ravenclaw girl. By the end of the year, they had become good friends, frequently helping each other. With a bit of a push coming from fellow Ravenclaws, they became sweethearts. When Melissa, who was Muggle-born, found herself bullied by Slytherin pureblood extremists, Ead entered a serious fight with her abusers. The duel went bad for both sides, who passed weeks in the hospital wing recovering from broken bones, bleeding, lacerations and the like. When him and his opponents
    recovered, Ead escaped punishment due to the previous duel by using the latter's reprisals as a way to demonstrate they were to blame for both mishaps.
    The passage through Hogwarts was, otherwise, fast and generally successful. Ead achieved the marks necessary to became an Auror, which was his dream profession despite him being a Slytherin.

    Adulthood:
    Following graduation, Ead was accepted by the Ministry of Magic for the position of assistant Auror. He was very successful in his first cases, and eventually got an important job as double agent inside a Dark Arts splinter cell. When the said group became aware of the existence of a Judas among their ranks, Ead was forced to provide deceitful intelligence to the Ministry, so as to preserve his cover.
    The Ministry didn't take it kindly, pulling Ead out of the case and honourably discharging him.
    Fearing that he would be hunted down by Death Eaters for what he knew, Ead was forced to say 'farewell' to his bride, Melissa, who went to live under the protection of the Ead's godfather for as long as the Death Eaters existed. Ead then faked his death and exiled himself in Azores, studying the Death Eater's modus operandi. There, abroad and away from his loved ones, he grew an increasing hate toward werewolves, Death Eaters and the Ministry itself.
    Few years afterwards, he returned to Great Britain as a freelancer monster hunter under the pseudonym 'Yak', set to end the lives of the degenerate human-like magical beings, of as many Death Eaters as possible, and to take down the Ministry.

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



    ALSO KNOWN AS: Edward (also, Yak, as it is my real life nickname)

    RP EXPERIENCE: 2 years of recurrent roleplay.

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Forumotion

    MAIN CHARACTER: Ead Gabrömic

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: I love Harry Potter, and roleplaying, so I decided I would try to join. The character itself is passed as a darker version of Balthazar, from Supernatural.

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:

    "23rd Adam Street, Liverpool" Ead read once more. The address was written in red ink, in a tiny, dirty piece of paper. Ead adjusted the sleeves of his leather jacket and looked up to the building before him. It was a messy backstreet house, piles of trash on either side of the rusty iron door, along with cigarettes and hypodermic syringes. A couple of containers stood between a decrepit sidewalk and the building.
    At first sight, one wouldn't believe there might be any living soul around the damned street, except perhaps the vermin, but the fact that the windows were broken from the inside, the sound of a radio tuned to shady station where 'DEATH TO THE MUDBLOOD!' appeared to be some sort of masthead title, and a quick check with Homenum revelio convinced Ead he had tracked down his latest prey.
    His name was Jacob Wyrva, a recently-graduated Dark Follower who, thanks to his parents' generous financing of the Death Eaters, got himself a position among the cold blood assassins. To find him was not too hard, but entering Jacob's hideout could be. For what Ead knew, Jacob probably wasn't alone, and if he was caught sneaking his way into the building, it could prove to be rash.
    Perhaps, the door was the fastest away in. Ead picked a recent-looking pizza box, adjusted his jacket again and, lifting a closed fist toward the entrance, knocked at the door. At first, there was no response. Ead almost thought he could have been mistaken, but finally a voice was heard:
    "Who are ya? We ain't expecting nobody."
    "My name is Tim. I'm here to deliver your pizza, sir."
    The voice growled with contempt, and answered:
    "Go away, loser!"
    "I'm sorry, sir. But it's marked for your address." Ead replied, trying to sound as natural as possible.
    "I said it already, we ain't expecting no pizza!"
    "Listen, sir. I have a date tonight and I need to get this delivered. How about you get this pizza for free, and get to tell my boss it is done?"
    For some moments, the only thing Ead could hear was the radio inside Jacob's safehouse. It took long, but the guard in the other side of the door seemed to have succumbed to gluttony.
    "Leave it in front of the door." the rude voice ordered. Ead didn't question the command, he dropped the pizza box instantly and hid himself behind a wall of garbage containers. He pulled his wand out, observing the slightest movement in the street.
    The guard waited at least five minutes before slowly opening the door and peeking into the street. Sensing no danger, he curved his upper body to pick up the pizza box. Ead jumped from his hiding place and aimed his wand right at the man's head.
    "Stupefy!" he uttered. His target fell to the ground, senseless. Only then could Ead see how he looked like. The guard seemed a middle-age thug, unshaven and unwashed. With his rude facial traits, pale skin and dirty clothing, Ead wouldn't find too surprising to know that he was werewolf.
    There was no time to think about it, though. Ead jumped over his body, trying not to touch it. As he entered inside the house, he noticed that it was just as horrible-looking as the outside. Dusty, decrepit, undecorated, damaged by nature, it wouldn't be his first choice for a house. The only pieces of furniture were a table with less 1 leg and a
    ugly clothes-hanger. Between the dust and water falling from the ceiling, Ead saw the stairs that led to the upper floor.
    Good thing they were so dirty. That away, the sound of his steps as he walked upstairs wouldn't so noticeable. As he reached the first floor, Ead began to hear sounds coming from one of the nearby rooms. With a certain amount of care, he reached to the doorknob. We could now hear distinct moans and whispers coming from inside. Realizing he didn't have that much time before another Death Eater would come along, Ead lifted his wand, stepped into the room and braced for what was inside.
    Jacob seemed to be having fun with two all-but-innocent girls, and he surely wasn't expecting anybody. The moment he saw Ead, his wand pointed toward Jacob, the young Death Eater's eyes almost popped out of his head. The girls didn't find it very amusing either, for they slowly back away into the toilet, leaving the two men alone.
    "I'm sorry, Jacob. I didn't mean to startle you. Also, I'm sorry. Death Eater doesn't work out for everybody."
    Jacob reached for his wand, which was under his pillow, but it was too late. Ead aimed for Jacob's throat, and with a fluid movement, shouted:
    "Diffindo!"

Hey, Edward!

Welcome to PA!

First, good work on your app. I appreciate your work to flesh out Ead so well. But I have a few bits for you to polish.

I understand that he's had some pretty powerful and painful encounters with creatures, but since his adoptive parents also were working to instill so much love and peace into him, where did it not balance and how did his experiences become so broadbased as to want all magical creatures, in a magical world, extinquished? There had to be more in his thinking than that.

Second, Voldemort, in this time period on this site, is presumably deceased. When the site was started Voldemort was indeed alive and at large, but he as since been "eliminated."

He also does seem that he is perhaps a bit fond of drama. He does seem, according to his makeup and according to the sample post, to like to intimidate in a very strong way. I'm not saying that in a negative way. Its just an observation. Is that the way you intend him to be?

Question--does Melissa still live with his godfather? And if so, how does his relationship with her affect who he is now?
