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!

COOPER, Altair 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.

------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION
------------------------------------------------------------


    FULL NAME: Altair Cooper

    NICKNAMES:

    AGE: 16

    ALLEGIANCE: Neutral

    HOGWARTS HOUSE: Slytherin

    CLASSES: Charms, DADA, Transfiguration, Potions

    WAND: Hawthorn, Unicorn Tail Hair, 12 inches, firm

    PLAY BY: Louis Cordice


------------------------------------------------------------
APPEARANCE
------------------------------------------------------------


    HAIR COLOUR: Black

    EYE COLOUR: Green

    COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: Tall

    BODY BUILD: Lanky/Athletic

    GENERAL APPEARANCE: Altair  has a sharp, oval, face that is highlighted by his rather large nose. It looks as if it has been broken one too many times which, funny enough, it has been. Sharp and distrusting eyes are the second most noticeable feature about Altair, giving off a very disgruntled and angry appearance when his face is resting normally. The way he looks when he is not talking gives off a very "Don't bother me" look, when in reality, he wishes to be social. Last, but not least, are his ears which are his least favorite feature. A crooked and almost too big look has been the source of mockery since he was a child and he hates the way his ears look on his head.

    Tall and skinny, as he ages, he is starting to fill out his athletic frame. When he was younger he was lanky and terribly skinny to the point of looking almost malnourished. Despite having quite the appetite he could never quite bulk up even though he lives a rather sedentary lifestyle. When not wearing his robes he would give off the impression of someone who was quite athletic, toned arms and a toned body, but it can be very misleading as he does not pride himself on being overly strong and athletic.

    His arms are unusually long, giving him a reach of almost eighty inches, and his hands are well above average in size. It makes simple things like holding a quill or shaking someones hand seem cartoony and outlandish and he has always been shy about his hands. Often times keeping them tucked into his pockets so that people do not proclaim, loudly, how freakishly large his hands are.


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



    STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES: Altair is an excellent reader and can read through a large book in seemingly no time. He also soaks up knowledge like a sponge, if he hears it once, he usually remembers it which makes test taking quite easy for him. His strongest form of magic is Transfiguration and has a natural knack for it, picking it up with ease as early as his first year. He is also quite good at Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts, though not as good as Transfiguration. He is also an excellent Quidditch player, when he puts his mind to it. A strict training regime that started when he was young made him an excellent flyer and very nimble on a broom.

    Laziness is quite possibly his number one weakness as he rarely does anything besides think about the things he should be doing. Preferring to sit in the common room than head outside to socialize he is not known for his adventurous side. When it comes to classes he is not a fan of Herbology, hating the class with a passion since he started at Hogwarts, he has no desire to get better in the subject. He is also relatively shy and has a problem finding newer friends. Once he opens up he is easy to get along with, but it is getting him to open up that is the hard part, usually relying on his friends to introduce him rather than seeking out people on his own. Having very little empathy, he finds it hard to connect emotionally with people, even his friends or family. He is aware that he has trouble connecting but he has not taken the steps to fix the problem as he somewhat enjoys the fact that other peoples problems don't bog him down.

    LIKES & DISLIKES:

    Likes: Altair prefers to sit inside on a bright and sunny day rather than go outside and be in the sun. He loves to read, sleep, and sit around doing nothing while actually thinking that he needs to get up and accomplish something. He used to love watching Quidditch, and still secretly does, but his fathers relentless training turned him off of the sport for good. He loves sweets and usually indulges himself every year at Hogwarts due to the strict diet he has at home. He also enjoys a nice game of wizards chess and considers himself to be very adept at the game, though he still gets beaten from time to time due to careless mistakes.
    Dislikes: Altair has developed a strong dislike for the sport of Quidditch. Mostly he hates to play it as his father forced him into playing when he was younger, but he has started to dislike the sport in general. He doesn't dislike social interaction, but he does not go out of his way to talk to people, much preferring to stay in his room and read or play wizards chess. He does not enjoy the outgoing and adventurous nature of Gryffindors but he is also not above befriending them if he thinks they are cool or easy to talk to

    GOALS: To do something that he likes and step out of his fathers shadow.

    HABITS & QUIRKS: Most noticeable is his leg twitch that he has while sitting at a desk. He does not think about it and will often begin to shake his leg so hard that his entire desk will shake. He also loves to tap his fingers when he is bored, breaking the monotony by creating his own sounds.

    PERSONALITY: At first, Altair is very shy and seems almost threatening to most people. He gives off quite an aggressive look without meaning to and it scares off most people when they try and talk to him. Often looking bored even when he is intrigued by the conversation, his sleepy look makes people think he is not paying attention, or is just not interested. Though he was gifted with a very physically fit body, he prefers to sit in his room reading or sleeping. Being pushed into playing Quidditch by his father, who plays professionally, Altair is extremely defiant in his wish to not pursue a career in Quidditch. Wishing to create his own destiny instead of following in the exact same footsteps as his father.

    He has a strong desire to fit in with people, especially the children of his house, and will do just about anything to be accepted. Not very funny, not overly attractive, and he squanders his ability on a broom, he has no defining traits that offer him the ability to stick out in a crowd of people and become the popular student he so desires to be. Outwardly lazy, he will stop at nothing to accomplish what he sets his mind too, often resorting to very underhanded tactics to achieve his goals.

    Due to his fathers career, he never had a father figure, and his mother was too busy swooning over his older brother to really care enough to spend time with him. Due to this, he lacks the empathy levels that most children his age have. While not a real problem as he is not inherently malicious, he does lack the ability to really feel sorry for other peoples problems, often times having the mentality of "Better them than me." Though he does show a sense of loyalty towards his friends in the fact that he cares about them, but in a selfish way, if they were gone he would have no one to talk to. He would be more upset with his own selfish desires than the fact that his friends were hurt or gone.

    Brave in the fact that he will stand up for those close to him, he will not go out of his way to help someone in need, preferring to stay out of a situation than potentially endanger himself. This mindset, to him, does not make him selfish as he believes that everyone is out for their own self preservation. His success is more important to him than that of another.

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



    Caster Cooper, a pureblood wizard from a dying family, Caster went against the grain and married a muggle woman he met after getting lost in London. The last of his bloodline, Caster fell in love with a muggle, and he did what most pureblood families look down on and married her. A widowed mother of one, Irene was a nurse at a large hospital in London, and Caster did not have the funds to support her financially seeing as he was a wizard and did not earn muggle money.

    A famous seeker for the Falmouth Falcons, Caster had plenty of gold to keep them both afloat, but he would have to reveal his secret to Irene. After they were married, Caster revealed it to her, and while she was shocked at first she eventually came around and was even fascinated by the fact that she had married a wizard. Deciding to continue working, they both moved into a small muggle village, and seeing as how Caster was rarely home he had no problem staying under the radar.

    Altair was born on a chilly night in October. Named after the twelfth brightest star in all the constellations, and meaning the Flying Eagle, Craster had high hopes for his firstborn son. Jess, who was three years old at the time of Altairs birth, grew up to be increasingly jealous of Altair who received all the attention from his step father Craster.

    A smiling baby, Altair rode his first broom when he was barely a year old, a small model meant for infants. Altair was a natural and grew up around the Quidditch pitch, he loved going because he got to spend time with his father, but his father was strict in his training regime for Altair. His life as he grew up was riding brooms and the thought that he was one day going to become a famous Quidditch player.

    Because he was always with his father he did not develop socially like the other kids did. He often dreamed of running around and playing with the other kids his age instead of being at the Quidditch stadiums all the time. Though all the other kids claimed to be jealous of him being around so many of their heroes, it was so common for him that he did not even think about it, and he longed for a normal life.

    He eventually grew to hate the sport of Quidditch and he began to slack in his training. He would fake being sick and would fake injuries often so that he did not have to practice with his father. His brother Jess was very jealous of Altair, thinking it unfair that his brother was a wizard, and that he received all of the attention from Craster. Irene, loving her son Altair, would often make up for it by being the motherly figure towards Jess. Since she knew nothing of the wizarding world she never really connected with Altair but she loved him just as much as Jess.

    When he received his letter to Hogwarts the first thing his father said was that he was going to be the first Seeker since Harry Potter to join the Quidditch team. Altair hoped this was not true as he was more interested in finally learning how to do magic. In his down time he often read the books in his fathers study and he read every book off of his student list within two weeks of getting them.

    He loved reading as he was not forced to do anything physical and he loved being lazy. His years at Hogwarts were relatively uneventful. He went to class, studied, and kept his head down so as not to get into trouble. He tried to keep the fact that his father was a professional Quidditch player under wraps as he did not like the attention. Though a few people knew, he always played it off, pretending he was a different Cooper and that it was a common name.

    He never stuck out in classes, though he did shine in Transfiguration, it quickly became his favorite subject. He was also fond of Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions class. The only class he really did not enjoy was Herbology or A History of Magic, though he he received relatively good marks in both classes.

    Despite constant pleas from both his father and some of the Quidditch players, he never joined the team, he had grown to hate Quidditch and he wanted nothing to do with it. His father was gravely disappointed in him and their relationship took a downward spiral. They were never really the same again and while Altair was upset about this, he got over it quickly, or at least he claimed he did.

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



    ALSO KNOWN AS: Altair is fine

    RP EXPERIENCE: Few years

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Google, HP RP.

    MAIN CHARACTER: Altair

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: To roleplay?

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:
    "Hey, Altair, wanna go down to the lake for a swim?"

    "Nah, I have some studying to do, I will catch you guys later." Studying? He rarely had to study but it was his go to excuse whenever other students invited him outside. They mistook him reading all of the time as studying, when in fact, he was just reading for pleasure. It was always easy to convince them otherwise, they were all too busy goofing off and running around to understand that someone would enjoy reading, when they looked at it as some punishment the Professors were dishing out to them. Scratching his head, he watched as they ran off outside, for a moment he wished he was going with them. Every now and then he got that feeling in his stomach where he wanted to join them, to be normal, to play and have a good time with other kids his age. It quickly faded, though, as they vanished from sight and the prospect of chasing them down almost seemed more embarrassing than actually studying on a Friday night.

    Reaching up to scratch his head, he turned on his heel, and took off towards his common room. It didn't help that it seemed as if everyone else was going in the opposite direction as him. He was used to being in the common room alone these days. The semester was just beginning and everyone did all of their studying towards the end when exams were coming up. In truth, Altair had been ready for this years exams since the second week, he had been studying all summer and had read through all of his text books twice. Now he was onto a Potions book that he had recommended to him by his Potions Professor which went over various advanced Potions that intrigued him.

    Wow, he really was a nerd, and it didn't seem like it was going to be changing anytime soon. Maybe he would have been better off in Ravenclaw, that's what they always joked, at least. Sure, he studied a lot, but he had nothing in common with them. They all obsessed over their grades and he was only about doing the bare minimum to be successful. Turning a corner he came across a set of moving stair cases that were just coming around. Lucky. He took a step onto them and continued his journey back to the common room.

    Getting knocked on the shoulder by a younger student, he almost dropped the book he was holding under his arm, but his quick reflexes made for an easy catch. "Watch it, man." Altair muttered as the Hufflepuff student stared for a moment before running off without offering an apology. Typical, bunch of worthless students they were. If he disliked any house the most, it was Hufflepuff, seemed as if every hypocrite in the world flocked there. Loyal and noble, bunch of riff raff if you asked Altair.

    Speaking the password to the portrait, he clambered into his common room, noticing it was mostly empty except for people leaving. Looking on, he longed for a moment to change his mind and join them, but ultimately his laziness prevailed. Sighing, he plopped down on the couch, and another lonely night of reading prevailed.

Can I just ask where you've gotten this app template from?

It's not currently the one we're using.

Enthusiasm! I like it!

I was just confused because it looked a little bit like one of our old ones only not at the same time and I wasn't in the mood to go and hunt it down, either! Haha!

If it's not too much trouble... just to keep things uniform.

Feel free to add in the bits that you've got as it is like the Hogwarts sorting bit. Our app is quite versatile and you can change bits around, have no fear of that, as long as everything is covered in some sort of fashion!
