Wilson, James William Hqdefault

Name: James William Wilson
Age: 30
Class: Wizard
Former House: Gryffindor
Occupation: Deputy Headmaster of Hogwarts / Dueling Instructor
Blood: Pureblood

Mother: Amber Wilson
Father: Gregory Wilson
Brother(s): None

Playby: Dmitri Shostakovich
Hair: Dark brown
Eyes: Blue
Height: 1.90 m
Build: Slender
Skin: Caucasian (ghostly pale)
Clothes: Usually seen wearing a suit or robes; dark colours
Overall Appearance: Wilson was and still is typically described as a scarecrow. His tall and slender figure usually lurks the hallways as a spectre and despite his calm nature, younger students still tend to avoid his presence. His unnaturally pale skin always attracted the though that he was ill, but with the notable exception of having astigmatism, he was completely healthy. Still, the contrast of his pale skin with his dark clothes and his thick, dark brown hair usually made the stern-looking young man look both otherworldly and menacing. 
Nationality: British
Good Qualities:

  • Extraordinary intelligence and reasoning
  • Vast magical and general knowledge
  • Extremely skillful wizard 
  • Patience 
  • Loyalty

Bad Qualities:

  • Emotional coldness
  • Horrible social skills
  • Tends to be cynical and sardonic
  • Loneliness


  • Teaching and sharing knowledge
  • Learning and studying magic
  • Literature
  • Muggle music


  • Injustice
  • Hypocrisy
  • Discrimination
  • Disloyalty 
  • Pride and snobbish behaviour


  • Being an underachieving failure in life
  • Losing the few people he actually cares about
  • Being a disappointment 

General Personality: As far as Wilson goes, people seem to think he's a rather simple emotional cripple. Always with a stern and cold expression, the young wizard has garnered a reputation of being a misanthrope and, even, a sociopath. He is extremely intelligent and his reasoning is perpetually sound, which is why he was, earlier in his life, considered to be a machine, rather than a human being. But, that cold, pale facade hides a very strong idealist who needed to safeguard the strong emotion from the cruel realism of the world. Wilson is, thus, quite loyal, very understanding and a brilliant advice-giver, but only if you manage to show so much interest as to see through the walls he had long before built. He has a very strong personality, he will stand up when necessary and he would rather die for his ideals than to see them crushed, but he likes to keep to himself, seldom speaking first and answering only when explicitly asked to. 


Early Years: Born into a well-known wizarding family from London, Wilson was a Wunderking from the start. His magical powers were exceptional and his parents taught him some of the more advanced spells even before he got his invitation to Hogwarts. Destined to be sorted into Ravenclaw like his father, the Sorting Hat saw something in him, something even he did not know was there, and put him into Gryffindor.
Hogwarts Years: Due to his great intelligence and excellent memory, he excelled academically and was, by all standards, the brightest pupil in Hogwarts during his time. He mastered all the classes and was soon taught even the most advanced magic by his mentors. But, although a time of great learning, school was also a very lonely place for Wilson. Introverted and socially distant, he did not have many friends and socialized mostly with two of his most important mentors - professors Doyle and McCoy. This resulted in him being not just isolated, but antagonized by his peers, who deemed him untrustworthy; although, he did serve as tactical advisor to the Gryffindor Quidditch team, despite not being capable of playing the game well enough himself. Upon completing his N.E.W.T.'s, Wilson embarked on an academic trip around Europe to master the more obscure branches of magic, including the Dark Arts.
After Hogwarts / Adult: Used to doing everything by himself, Wilson was absent for almost a year before he returned to the Ministry of Magic and got a position as an Auror. He was soon disappointed with the Ministry's bureaucratic structure and left, taking up a teaching position at Hogwarts. At the time of his return, he managed to get the position of Deputy Headmaster, a position vacant for quite a time because no one actually wanted extra administrative duties. He also managed to secure the post of Dueling Instructor, as it allowed him to teach his skills to new generations of witches and wizards.
