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!

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:
    -Luke is a very lonely person even around people. He struggles with wanting to come out as gay and being afraid that his friends and family will leave him. He loves the idea of being in love and feels that if he could find that special person his life would instantly become better.
    -Luke is extremely loyal to his friends and family. To his enemies though he is cold. While he hates the thought of hurting anyone accidentally or unnecessarily he sometimes feels joy over it. He often finds his hate for causing harm is outdone by his joy for it, and fights to keep such feelings away. It would probably cripple him emotionally if he were to kill someone on accident or on purpose. Though he can honestly say that at times he is unsure if this is true.
    -Luke is very confident and therefore has no issue running straight into trouble. However he doesn't always take the time to plan out his actions and can find himself in trouble or worse. His favorite pastime is taking things that don't belong to him. While he understands what he is doing is wrong he finds that he has a hard time controlling himself.
    -Luke usually finds it very easy to get people to do what he wants and often enjoys the benefits. Though he wouldn't intentionally manipulate a friend and feels guilty if it accidentally happens. He finds that lying is very easy for him, but he has gotten so used to it that he may lie without realizing it.
    -Luke has a obsession for food and has a few stashes of candy and snacks hidden in the castle. He also often sneaks out of bed and goes to the kitchens for a midnight snack.
    -Despite having a rich family he has a separate bank account that he stores things he has stolen as well as money he has earned in it. He doesn't require his family to pay for the things he wants or needs. He has this account more out of not knowing where to hide the things he steals than keeping them as trophy's.
    -His favorite bird is a sparrow and imagines if he could turn into an animal it would be a sparrow.
    -Luke is very intelligent and is considered gifted. However because he does not find his classes challenging enough and loses interest therefore his grades are not always the best. Although he does find Divination truly fascinating as almost all members of his family are seers. Although he has not yet spoken a prophecy.

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



    Early Years:  Luke was born in his family home instead of a hospital. By 8 months he was saying simple words and by age 3 he was speaking in perfect complex sentences using a giant vocabulary. He could read extremely complex books at the age of 5 and by 7 he had already begun to show a knack for magic. In the muggle world he would be considered gifted.

    At age 8 was when he began to explore the country around his house on his own enjoying the forest and the lake near his village. He even learned many song bird calls so he would have winged friends. It may have helped that he could use magic to call them to him. He remembered the first time he left the village with his aunt. He was 10. He got his letter to Hogwarts on his 11th birthday. It was not until his mother took him to Diagon Alley that he met other witches and wizards outside of his family. He even met his first vampire that day when he met Nathan Mills. He was amazed to learn that he was even related to this vampire though he wasn't sure exactly how until he asked the vampire while at Hogwarts.

    Hogwarts Years:  Luke loved the day he boarded the train for Hogwarts. His first and second years were filled with new excitement for him. He enjoyed learning the basic spells as well as learning about the school in general. He would often be up late at night exploring. He even learned how to avoid detection by teachers and prefects (usually through trial and error.)

    During his second year he was told by his divination professor that his family were an ancient line of seers that were often found in the courts of the many kings and queens that used to rule over ancient Britain. From then on Divination became his favorite class and once that he had no issue scoring top marks in on every test.

    His third fourth and fifth years served to be even more exciting than his first two for these three years he didn't even go home for Christmas holiday so that he could learn more about the school. By now he had taken to exploring the forbidden forest. He found the creatures to be astounding as the forest he was used to at his family's mansion as it was only filled with deer and birds. He learned how to move around them without being seen although he was always fearful of the creatures in the dark that he couldn't detect. It was by now that he opened a separate account at Gringotts so he could hide the growing stack of things he was taking from others.

    His sixth year was when he became aware of the fact he is gay. He often found himself staring at the boy in the chair in front of him in class or at his best friend. He even told his best friend who did not take it well. He would have spread the news around the school if Luke had not whipped it from his memory.

    His seventh year is his current year.

Glad to have you back!!

Let me know if I can help. Perhaps I can give you some ideas that might fit with site plot that would give him a bit of a different spin, if that's what you're looking for!

Taylor--

I think, really, what you have here is a Slytherin trying to be a Ravenclaw. He's definitely not a Gryffindor. If I had to sort him today, I'd probably need to make him a Hufflepuff because he has that Hufflepuff loyalty, but he also has enough traits of enough other houses, that it makes him a bit scrambled and eccentric. And I dont' think that's what I'm hearing you want for him.

I get the feeling you want him to be a good guy, with a bit of a dark edge to him. That's fine, but I'd like to see you perhaps pull back that dark edge and make it a little less. Right now, it comes across to me as making him somewhat confused. I often like to portray people that are really good guys, and strong characters, but who also have a bit of a darker edge to them. They're not easy to design and not easy to play. But--I think I'm hearing that's what you want to do. Correct?

Pull back on the dark edge. Make it something, maybe, that he doesn't like in himself and has to fight to keep control over. A good guy is going to be quick to recognize that negative stuff inside and is going to be working to develop all sorts of failsafes to keep that dark stuff under control. It's good internal conflict for Luke. Perhaps he would also be a character that would work well with a good guy mentor that also has that dark edge.

I can see him perhaps pairing up with a couple of my stronger characters and learning from them how to reel that stuff within himself that he doesn't like, along with perhaps honing some of his other abilities.

If you want him to be a Gryffindor, the key to them is not just loyalty but self sacrifice--either for love or for the greater good. If you want him to be a Ravenclaw, he has to be really on a quest for some sort of learning. Whether its academic skills--and most of the good Ravenclaws we have had have had at least one academic subject that they excelled at--or whether its at street skills--being rather saavy at street skills and wanting to hone those to use to not just get their own needs met but also are committed to the greater good and the ones they love.

Does that help?
