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.

Hair: Grayish brown
Eyes: Blue
Height: 1.89 m
Build: Slender
Skin: Caucasian 
Clothes: Usually quite shabby and unkempt, but it's a bohemian style that suits him
Overall Appearance: Doyle looks like he just got out of bed, sleeping in full attire. Always. He detests formal clothes, he detests shaving and he detests combs. That is why he always look like a homeless drunk, although he has a home and never drinks. He usually wears plain muggle clothes and All-Stars, which allows him to blend into both world. Due to a limp, he always carries a cane, which also holds his wand.

  • Extremely skillful wizard 
  • Deduction, good at reading people
  • Knowledge of Muggle culture
  • On rare occasions, very loyal and protective

  • Comes off as mean and miserable
  • Horrible social skills
  • Tends to be sarcastic and sardonic
  • Doesn't respect people that much


  • Potions 
  • Poisons
  • Potions

  • Canes and All-Stars

  • People in general; especially stupid people
  • Plants and gardens and all that silly shit
  • Formalism
  • Ministry of Magic
  • The little prick who owns the shop opposite of his


  • Not being able to protect Ariana
  • Brewing a potion that would make him happy
  • Brewing a potion that would blow him into tidbits 
  • Generally fearless

General Personality: One would say he is very strange. Always with a serious look on his face, he is ready, at any moment, to blast a sarcastic, even a sardonic, remark upon anyone. He knows how far he can go with his comment, but sometimes, he intentionally makes people feel miserable. Although he seems miserable himself, he tends to conceal his overall satisfaction with his current position; he carries a lot of burdens and has a history, but Doyle doesn't spread misery because he is miserable himself - he just has his own radical view on the world that he likes to impose. He will mock and make fun of people, tell them directly that they are stupid without even blinking. He also like authority and control, and is very good in manipulating people. But, he also has another side, quite gentle and humane, which he only shows to several people; his family being among them and a few of his friend, although he can always name just two. He is very protective when he cares for someone and will do everything he can to protect the people he cares about.


Early Years: Born in London, to Muggle Parents, Edgar did not discover his magical abilities until he had received the letter from Hogwarts. Although initially sceptical, his parents allowed him to enter the school. Before his trip to Hogwarts, he used to read a lot of books, learned to play the piano, which he mastered later, and the guitar, which he managed to master during his stay at Hogwarts. He used to play a lot with his sister, which resulted in them forming a strong bond between each other (although that did happen when he was a lot older). He had a strong interest in History and Music, but also in Medicine, Chemistry and Science in general. At the age of 10, he finally went to Hogwarts, being one of the rare Muggle-born students in his generation. 
Hogwarts Years: He was, without hesitation, sorted into Ravenclaw because if his great intelligence. Ravenclaw was then headed by professor Flitwick. He exceeded in all subjects, especially Potions, Charms and DADA, but he did have some problems with Herbology and Transfiguration, the latter being because he was to lazy to practice it. He was mostly self-taught, which, as a result, had the fact that he managed to master non-verbal magic and learn the basics of wandless magic. He was also a member of the Quidditch team, playing as their goalkeeper. Ravenclaw won the Quidditch cup during those years. 
After Hogwarts / Adult: After graduating, he stayed in Hogwarts, replacing professor Flitwick as the Head of Ravenclaw and professor Slughorn as the Potions master. He worked in the school for several years, but then returned home to take care of his little sister. At home, he managed to master wandless magic and the piano. During the Wizarding Wars, he sided with the Order, although he never remained there as a permanent member, only because he did not want to bond himself with any organization. He currently operates out of Diagon Alley, as the owner of Slugs & Jiggers Apothecary.
