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.

His quest for information about a person sometimes is outside the lines of normal conversations this usually causes a normal person to wonder about Gavin and his motivations and where they may be.

Family Information: Father: Oleg Darklighter Mother: Amelia (Isabella) Darklighter, stayed with father while ill after briefly working for the Ministry of Magic

Background: Gavin was born to Muggle Oleg Darklighter and British witch Amelia (Isabella) Darklighter, Gavin’s father was a police officer in America before moving back to the United Kingdom with Amelia so Gavin could go to Hogwarts. While waiting to attend Hogwarts Gavin read his father’s training manuals on everything from criminal investigations to traffic control. From a very young age Gavin knew that he wanted to be in Law Enforcement, at the time he was not sure what that role would be. After a typical Hogwarts schooling, at the age of 18 Gavin applied to the Ministry of Magic. He didn’t care where he got in as long as it was in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, he wanted to make his father proud. After training and then Field training, Gavin was assigned as a Muggle Liaison officer, explaining away things to Muggle law enforcement as needed by the Ministry of Magic. Soon after that Gavin’s father Oleg began to fall Ill, his mother unable to care for him caused him to return to his family’s home to tend to his father forcing him to take a leave of absence with the ministry. After missing his line of work, to generate income Gavin signed on for the Muggle police, better known as the Metropolitan Police Department. Two years later after the death of his father, Gavin returns to his world, to find things have changed.

Short Roleplay: Gavin entered the three broomsticks, automatically his habits kicked in, he looked to the left, right and center. “Clear” he said to himself, his habits kept him alive. As he walked to the bar, he scanned the room still occasionally looking Left, right and center. From what Gavin could tell he had not yet sparked anyone’s interest, yet. His orders had been to meet his handler here; the owl that they sent said that it would be someone he knew. He counted in the back of his head, that only narrowed it down to a few hundred people.

(OCC: Admin, my apologies if this Application is not as it should be, i've never filled one like this out before, please advise me of any changes that may need to be made-Andrew)

Great app! It doesn't show you haven't filled one out before. Can I be nosy and ask what different -styled applications you've filled out before? I like the Police section in the background/history by the way Smile.
Oh and you can choose the house as you're a graduate - it's just so we don't get a million people in a specific house at one time, we try to vary it, but for graduates it doesn't matter so much. Just like an interesting fact, I guess you could say.

ACCEPTED and sorted into GRADUATES.

Very well put together and very awesome admins with a reply in less than 12 Hrs! Thank you and i look forward to RPing Smile

Ah, ok. I just put in the codes so it's easier really. Not everyone is amazing at coding. Like if I say 'code it yourself' some people will do it really well but some might not. Plus some might blind me with colours Razz. We just ask for more things, I guess. It cuts down on the people that just post an application then leave the site, really.
RPGD is awesome. I'm on there and I like it. Glad to think we're the best Post-Potter RPG on there. That reminds me, I need to bump the topic.
I like to think the site is well put-together! And indeed, very awesome admins Wink. We all live on different time-zones, which can be annoying for communication, but useful as one of us is usually online.
Thanks for all the praise already, and I look forward to RPing with you too! Very Happy
