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:
    Alexander isn't exactly the nicest person, but he is in reality quite honest and kindhearted. But because of his quiet nature, his contradicting and critical views, his short temper, his impatience and large ego, he doesn't get along well with others, and most people generally think of him as an irritable person.

    Alexander is very stubborn and arrogant, and he always thinks that he is right, and wants the other person to know that too. If someone is stupid enough to start an arguement with him, it won't end until that person shares his views. Alex enjoys this though, as debating is his favirote thing. Still, if someone won't listen to him, he uses sarcasm to undermine and defeat them. He won't usually start a fight, he's not a violent person, but he does get into sulky moods quite often.

    His own mood tends to sway a lot. With most people who are not arguing with him and share his opinion, he gets a long with well. He's polite to any adult and respects elders, as taught in Russian culture. He does hold some very contradicting views though. He despises 'Western Culture' for example. He also dislikes people who try to be modern, like emo's, goths and etc. Anyone who likes hiphop or rap music is also frequently insulted. Basically, you have to agree with his opinion completely, or he will not like you.

    Potentially, Alex is quite smart. He just doesn't do well at school cause his head is always buried in fiction and history books. At other times, he's usually drawing instead of studying. This is something he is very good in, drawing and painting. He has that natural liking for art. Unfortunately, these hobbies take a toll on his marks, and as a result he is bad in all subjects besides History of Magic, which he always gets full marks in. He uses his intelligence for other things instead, such as outsmarting people or using them sometimes.

    If you can get close to him, like his family was, he is an incredibly honest and loyal person. He never lies to his friends and family and would do anything for them. One more thing about Alex is that he is quite addicted to both drugs and alchohol. He consumes an enormous and worrying amount of both on a daily basis, especially when stressed or depressed, and this happens often - usually by dissapointment by his family and friends.

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


    Early Years:
    Alexander Sokolov was born in a small Russian village north of St.Petersburg. Alex's early years, especially before turning six, were not too bad. He spend a large amount of time with his elder brother and even more so after his parents started fighting more often. By the age of nine, his father left, and his mom went into a depressed state. When he was eight, his brother left to Durmstrang, and Alexander basically had to take care of himself. By this age he was reading and drawing more than interacting with other children his age. Three years later, he himself left to Durmstrang.

    Durmstrang Years:
    Durmstrang years were good enough. He made a couple friends, just three or four, Alex never liked to be surrounded by too many people. He followed the proverb - 'keep only as many friends as you have fingers.' Because you never knew when one might stab you in the back. Alex didn't do so well at school, instead spending most of his time reading in the library, flying (even though he doesn't like quidditch much, just like he feels about most sports), and drawing. When he was the age of 14, his brother left Durmstrang and joined the hit wizards of Russia. He was killed the same year by dark wizards. The following Summer his mother grew even more depressed, and hardly talked to Alex, who dealt with his own depression by adopting a drug and drinking habit. When he came back home after 5th year, his mother had abandoned him too, presumably leaving with her new boyfriend. He moved to his friends house, but had to leave there too, so now lives in an orphanage. He left to Hogwarts on his 7th year, even though he dislikes both Britain and the british people - he wanted to earn the prize for durmstrang, and show his mother and father who abandoned him that he was a worthy son. Besides that, he also needs the money, because he is now poor and homeless.

    Adulthood: (At least 1 paragraph of your characters history after Hogwarts)
