Hey all! So I'm reviving the Clarington-DuPont family that I let drop off after Lucas became a St. Oswald. Anyone is welcome to taking on one of the cousins or siblings. Here's a link to the family tree!
 It's pretty flexible with lots of opportunity to branch out if you're not a fan of the choices below. PM me if you're interested in any of the adoptables below or if you're interested in making an entirely new character related to the DuPonts.

Controversy is welcome. As a whole, this is a WIP right now, but please feel free to reach out to me and let me know if you're interested in any plots or characters!



So, a little bit about the Clarington-DuPont family.

An extremely old Pureblood family of social climbers, the DuPont family has taken every opportunity to improve their social standing in the Wizarding community. With ancestry dating back to 1700's France, the DuPont family can be found settled throughout America, Great Britain and France. The American and British branch of the family, Clarington-DuPont, came about through a union between Sarah Clarington (a distant relative of the Scrivner family) and Jacques DuPont, who came to America and founded DuPont Industries in 1802.

Constantly plagued by controversy and having been forced to rely on the Renn family for financial support, the DuPont family has seen better days. Its members, however, remain undeterred. They seek to restore honor and glory to the family and to the ailing business through any means necessary.




Lucas St. Oswald
FC: Grant Gustin

The quietly-disowned heir of the Clarington-DuPont family, Lucas was the child of Muggle parents and was secretly switched with the true heir of the DuPont family.  Having left all the controversy of the DuPont family behind, he now resides in Britain, adopted by the St. Oswald family. Pretending he is still a pureblooded heir with the St. Oswald name, Lucas wants to have nothing to do with the Clarington-DuPont family and is glad that they've kept him a secret.


TAKEN




Lucas Clarington-DuPont II
Suggested FC: Thomas Gibson

After the sudden and suspicious deaths of his father, Lucas Clarington-DuPont I, and older brother, Marcel, Lucas Clarington-DuPont II took control of DuPont Industries and became the head of the family when he was just sixteen years older. After the end of the war, DuPont Industries began failing under his leadership. After disowning his "son", Lucas was forced to begin molding a new heir in his image. After being forced to grovel before the Renn family and losing what he thought was his heir, Lucas had found the DuPont family in shambles. He wants nothing more than to be a better head of family than his grandfather, Hubert, and is willing to do whatever it takes to restore the DuPont family to its former glory.

OPEN




Lucinde Clarington-DuPont
Suggested FC: Miranda Cosgrove

The true heir of the DuPont family, Lucinde is the first-born to Lucas II and Jacqueline. At the tender age of seven, Lucinde is a spoiled brat and is already eager to conquer the world. Lucinde always gets what she wants, no matter the obstacle.


OPEN



Jean-Luc Clarington-DuPont
The three-year-old second child of Jacqueline and Lucas II. His sister takes great pleasure in torturing him and telling him that he'll never be the heir to the DuPont family. His father ignores him in favor of Lucinde.


TAKEN




Alice "Jacqueline" Clarington-DuPont née St. Oswald
Suggested FC: Zsa Zsa Gabor

Bride of Lucas II. Jacqueline, formerly Alice St. Oswald, was born to Henry and Rosemarie St. Oswald. Her parents were strict and did not approve of a marriage between Alice and Lucas. Desperate to escape her parents, Alice ran away with Lucas at the tender age of sixteen and never looked back. She spends most of her days living in regret, unwilling to reconcile with her parents and haunted by the thoughts of the child she gave up in a fit of rage.


OPEN




Patrick Clarington-DuPont
Suggested FC: Ty Burrell

The younger brother of Marcel and Lucas II. Being the third born, Patrick was forced to live in the shadow of both of his older brothers. He moved to Great Britain to create a dynasty of his own, but he still yearns to one day take control of the DuPont family.
 Bitter at the lot he's been given in life, Patrick is constantly on the search for power. He is even willing to disown his child in order to keep the family name from being tarnished.


OPEN




Louisa Clarington-DuPont
Suggested FC: Rachel Weisz

The wife of Patrick. Louisa is a queen in her own mind. The Lady Macbeth to her husband, Louisa is just as eager to see her husband succeed at becoming the new heir of the DuPont family. She is deeply ashamed of her daughter's lack of magic and does not regret disowning her.


OPEN


Achilles Clarington-DuPont
FC: Darwin Gray

Eldest son of Patrick and Louisa, older brother of Killian and Olette.

TAKEN


Killian Clarington-DuPont
Suggested FC: David Henrie

Second-born son of Patrick and Louisa, older brother of Olette. Killian mercilessly tormented his sister when she still lived with them. Killian is extremely arrogant and bullies anyone that he considers weaker than him. Much like his father, Killian has developed a bitter rivalry with his cousin Lucinde. He blindly follows in his father's footsteps.


OPEN



Olette Clarington-DuPont
FC: Joey King

The black sheep of the family, Olette is a squib. Her parents attempted to hide her lack of magic and were deeply ashamed of having produced such a useless heir. They eventually disowned her and mercilessly threw her out into the streets, where she roams without a place to call home.
