NATHANIEL HARRISON MONTGOMERY
______________________________________________________________________________________

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

FULL NAME: Nathaniel Harrison Montgomery

NICKNAMES: Nate, Nat, Natty, Natey, Harry, Hairy, Hair

No one is sure if it’s because of his poofy mop of hair or the quietly confused look that sometimes appears on his face but Nathaniel has earned his fair share of nicknames over the years, mostly from the female species. Much like a show dog, Nate’s full, formal name is simply not for everyday use.

AGE: Born May 10, 2008. Currently nineteen years old.

ALLEGIANCE: It’s complicated. (Neutral)

EDUCATION: Salem Witches Institute

WAND: Sequoia, Dragon Heartstring and Knarl Quills, Sturdy, 13.5 inches

Sequoia – Another American wandwood, this is not commonly used in British wandmaking. However, the great age of the trees gives them plenty of time to absorb ambient magic, and hence this wood is ideal for those both strong-willed and in touch with nature.

Dragon Heartstring(s) - Dragon Heartstring is a powerful wand with a lot of magical “heft”. It is not the core you want for subtlety, but for sheer power it is definitely the best. Although it is the most common core among Dark Wizards, Dark Wizards are most certainly not their most common users. Dragon Heartstrings are by far the most common wand core amongst Slytherins, but their power often bonds to Gryffindors and Ravenclaws as well. However, they tend to overwhelm the archetypal Hufflepuff personality.

Knarl Quill(s) -  An easily frightened creature, it is only natural that a wand begotten of a Knarl is found in the hands of those who are more paranoid than usual. Their wielders are typically proficient with Hexes, and the Quills lend their strength to spells that confuse or disorient the target, especially the Confundus Charm.

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

HAIR COLOUR: Brown, fluffy, longer than it should be.

EYE COLOUR: Brown

COMPARATIVE HEIGHT: 5' 10"

BODY BUILD: Could be worse.

GENERAL APPEARANCE: Nate’s most definable feature is his hair which insists on being wild no matter how much conditioner he uses. He also sports a scruffy beard and mustache that is shaved off for any occasion that he is required to look presentable. From years of experience Nate feels as comfortable in suit and tie as he does in sweatpants and a tee. Because of the image he hopes to give himself, everyday clothing is normally professional and clean looking (dress pants, button-down shirt, jacket).

BOGGART: Making the family name worse than it already is. “Dishonor on your whole family! Dishonor on you! Dishonor on your cow!” would be a very real, painful threat to Nate.

PATRONUS: No patronus has been produced. Best memories unidentified.

DEMENTOR: The sudden plane ride to Washington D.C.

VERITASERUM: The lengths he will go to in order to restore his name.

MIRROR OF ERISED: Make a name for himself that is so big it overshadows the bad connotation Caitlyn and Thatcher gave them. If Nate could choose to be anything, he would be a chef and open his own restaurant. The career in finance is entirely for the money and power it gives him (he is aware of this).

MOTIVE: Driven by shame, his goal is to make a name for himself by becoming rich and successful.

PERSONALITY: When Nate had first learned about the family past he became even kinder and more compassionate than he had been as a child, almost as if his goodness would cancel out his parents evil. The more he grows the more he becomes just like his parents. Though they reached there in different ways and for different reasons, Nate has become just as ambitious, power-hungry, and greedy as Mom and Dad are.

There are three distinct sides to Nate.

The first is his public persona. Charming, cultured, and eternally loyal to the Pureblood Society, this is the Nate that is setting himself up for success. He can smile and make small talk at any cocktail party, effectively masking the resentment he feels over the whole affair. Nate’s parents also often see this side of their son as he hides his true feelings regarding the family from them. Nate’s true personality comes out as soon as the tie is off and he is in the company of anyone who is not part of Society.

When in a bad mood Nate can be extremely broody and distasteful. He’s known to shut down emotionally during hard times and has been accused of it being “his time of the month” from his actions. Nate will become extremely cross if he is bothered during a period of deep thinking or work and prefers to be alone when busy. When bored, he craves company, especially that of his already established close friends. These select few bring out the third side of Nate – a much sunnier and goofy man.

Nate’s a dork. He would get his girlfriend life-size teddy bears for Valentines and loves the idea of large romantic gestures. He thinks fart jokes are funny and has drawn a sharpie mustache on more than one sleeping friend. When giddy, Nate is a 12-year-old boy. He’s up for any and all adventures as long as they don’t interfere with his professional commitments and he has vowed to sail around the world when he’s finally build up enough savings and can take a break.

You have slight preference of Extraversion over Introversion (11%)
You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%)
You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (50%)
You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (33%)

As an ENTJ, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in primarily via your intuition.

ENTJs are natural born leaders. They live in a world of possibilities where they see all sorts challenges to be surmounted, and they want to be the ones responsible for surmounting them. They have a drive for leadership, which is well-served by their quickness to grasp complexities, their ability to absorb a large amount of impersonal information, and their quick and decisive judgments. They are "take charge" people.

ENTJs are very career-focused, and fit into the corporate world quite naturally. They are constantly scanning their environment for potential problems which they can turn into solutions. They generally see things from a long-range perspective, and are usually successful at identifying plans to turn problems around - especially problems of a corporate nature. ENTJs are usually successful in the business world, because they are so driven to leadership. They're tireless in their efforts on the job, and driven to visualize where an organization is headed. For these reasons, they are natural corporate leaders.

There is not much room for error in the world of the ENTJ. They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. They may become quite harsh when their patience is tried in these respects, because they are not naturally tuned in to people's feelings, and more than likely don't believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people's feelings. ENTJs, like many types, have difficulty seeing things from outside their own perspective. Unlike other types, ENTJs naturally have little patience with people who do not see things the same way as the ENTJ. The ENTJ needs to consciously work on recognizing the value of other people's opinions, as well as the value of being sensitive towards people's feelings. In the absence of this awareness, the ENTJ will be a forceful, intimidating and overbearing individual. This may be a real problem for the ENTJ, who may be deprived of important information and collaboration from others. In their personal world, it can make some ENTJs overbearing as spouses or parents.

The ENTJ has a tremendous amount of personal power and presence which will work for them as a force towards achieving their goals. However, this personal power is also an agent of alienation and self-aggrandizement, which the ENTJ would do well to avoid.

ENTJs are very forceful, decisive individuals. They make decisions quickly, and are quick to verbalize their opinions and decisions to the rest of the world. The ENTJ who has not developed their Intuition will make decisions too hastily, without understanding all of the issues and possible solutions. On the other hand, an ENTJ who has not developed their Thinking side will have difficulty applying logic to their insights, and will often make poor decisions. In that case, they may have brilliant ideas and insight into situations, but they may have little skill at determining how to act upon their understanding, or their actions may be inconsistent. An ENTJ who has developed in a generally less than ideal way may become dictatorial and abrasive - intrusively giving orders and direction without a sound reason for doing so, and without consideration for the people involved.

Although ENTJs are not naturally tuned into other people's feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness. Because the world of feelings and values is not where the ENTJ naturally functions, they may sometimes make value judgments and hold onto submerged emotions which are ill-founded and inappropriate, and will cause them problems - sometimes rather serious problems.

ENTJs love to interact with people. As Extroverts, they're energized and stimulated primarily externally. There's nothing more enjoyable and satisfying to the ENTJ than having a lively, challenging conversation. They especially respect people who are able to stand up to the ENTJ, and argue persuasively for their point of view. There aren't too many people who will do so, however, because the ENTJ is a very forceful and dynamic presence who has a tremendous amount of self-confidence and excellent verbal communication skills. Even the most confident individuals may experience moments of self-doubt when debating a point with an ENTJ.

ENTJs want their home to be beautiful, well-furnished, and efficiently run. They're likely to place much emphasis on their children being well-educated and structured, to desire a congenial and devoted relationship with their spouse. At home, the ENTJ needs to be in charge as much as he or she does in their career. The ENTJ is likely best paired with someone who has a strong self-image, who is also a Thinking type. Because the ENTJ is primarily focused on their careers, some ENTJs have a problem with being constantly absent from home, physically or mentally.
The ENTJ has many gifts which make it possible for them to have a great deal of personal power, if they don't forget to remain balanced in their lives. They are assertive, innovative, long-range thinkers with an excellent ability to translate theories and possibilities into solid plans of action. They are usually tremendously forceful personalities, and have the tools to accomplish whatever goals they set out for.

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


Early Years: Caitlyn and Thatcher’s crimes began five years before the birth of their son. Desperate for importance in a world full of big names, the young couple began passing information from their Ministry on to American authorities. It wasn’t hard to find anything useful – Caitlyn worked alongside the Minister (and eventually the entire important international wizarding community) on a daily basis while Thatcher worked in a department literally filled-to-bursting with secrets.

In addition to having good, high-ranking jobs, the Montgomerys were well rewarded by the American’s for the danger they placed upon themselves. The couple purchased a large home in northern Wales and began to consider if they wanted children to fill their newly acquired bedrooms. Before they had a chance to decide one way or another, nature stepped in and Caitlyn was pregnant. Nine months later she gave birth to a healthy baby boy that they named Nathaniel Harrison after his grandfather and an old friend from school days.

The child grew up with want for nothing. While Nate’s parents were at work (neither were able to take much of a maternity/paternity leave) the house and grounds became a playground. As he grew, he began to request the company of other children his age. Women who dropped by to call on his mother began to bring their children and Nate formed a few close bonds with other Purebloods. Most notable of these was Nessarose, a Bridgewood girl who was three years his junior. The older Nessa got the more adventures he was able to take her on – going swimming in the river, riding on his horse with him, or showing her the hidden treasures of the attic.

Like so many others his age, Nate began to discover his magic powers around age eight. Because his life held so little hardship or anger his magic came more subtly than so many of his peers. Caitlyn began to tell stories of a large castle called Hogwarts where he would go to school in a few short years and be sorted into the family house, Slytherin, where he would meet the best and lifelong friends. She gave him her old first-year textbooks to study until it was time to get his own and it was just as Nate fell in love with the idea of this school that disaster struck.

After fourteen years their secret was coming out.  

The family flew to Washington the next day, putting their home on the market by the end of the week. With assistance from the American Ministry all bank funds were transferred and possessions brought oversea. By the end of the month they had moved to a fashionable part of New York City, enrolling Nate into a private school until he reached his twelfth birthday and would be able to attend Salem Witches Academy slightly south of them.

Salem Years: Nate brooded the loss of Hogwarts until the moment he walked through the doors of Salem. The school was wonderful, structured a lot like the private school he attended in New York. Every day he wore a uniform, tie, and expensive shoes. At this point in time it would be fair to say that if Nate had attended Hogwarts he would not have been placed in Slytherin. The boy was sweet, spoiled but compassionate, and had an obvious drive to learn and experience new things wherever he went.

After immersing himself in the muggle world for so many years he was eager to rejoin the wizarding one. Unfortunately with this switch also came rumors and labels that he had never realized came with his family name. Among any English families he was considered a traitor and the truths of what had happened when he was nine began to surface. By the age of fifteen Nate had gathered a pretty clear picture of his parent’s crimes and found himself in the position of having to defend them against the more focal classmates. He soon began to feel an unspoken disconnect between him and many of the other purebloods. While he was still invited to the finest parties he also tended to hang off towards the side.

Nate’s circle of friends was tight knit and extended beyond the halls of Salem Institute. His mother maintained her powerful social circles of the pure and wealthy, now extending into muggle families and the new money of New York. In particular, Nate bonded to Elsie Norton who shared his unsettled feelings of not belonging in the society they had been born to.

In his later school years most of Nate’s childish innocence had worn off and he began to feel slightly bitter towards his parents and the other children in equal measure. These feelings were solidified in a summer trip back to England where he was treated with immediate suspicion upon hearing his last name.

Adulthood: After graduation Nate began to disentangle himself from his parents as subtly as he could. He quickly realized that their money and connections in the muggle business world were more valuable than being free of the family history. Nate continues to desire and seek a fresh start for himself where he doesn’t have a shadow hanging over him but he now hopes to accomplish this by gaining enough personal wealth and power that he no longer has to rely on his inheritance. Taking advantage of his father’s place in the muggle financial world, Nate placed himself in a low ranking position in a financial advisory company and quickly flew up the ranks.

Recently, Nate has made the return move to the London alongside Elsie and her friend Claire Bishop. He’s all too aware of the cautious Ministry eyes on him and in the back of his mind he’s considering how to right his parent’s wrongs and achieve the worldly position he dreams of in the country he was born.
