Tobias Mandrake. It had a much better ring to it than Tobias Smith. His father had insisted that he go by Smith when he went to the muggle school -and not use the word muggle, that was very important- because he said that Mandrake was a name he could only use when people in robes were around.

The young boy grew up in the muggle world. He was sent to a muggle preparatory school, they went to muggle museums, and contributed to the war effort. Tobias even won a ribbon for his efforts in collecting scrap metal from the neighbours due to his winning smile and (more importantly) persistent requests.

That said, Tobias also grew up in magic. His father was one of the leading lights in the magical world, and was the unquestioned expert in his field of Magical Beasts (Flubberworms were the most important magical beast, Tobias had always assumed), and his mother was a halfblood witch.

His mother made him a halfblood as well, even though his father was a muggleborn. He had always wanted to wear the same badge as his dad did, but he had to wear the H instead. Still, the badges were gone now, so it didn’t matter that much anyways.

What did matter was the letter. When he got it on his final day of school, his father had quietly told the Headmaster he wouldn’t be returning the next year (and that Tobias’s middle name was never ‘Callmetobi’). No, he was off. Off on a train, to something called ‘Camp Loki.’

Where he would spend his first night away from home.

House Request:

Tobias wants to be friends with everybody, and everything. While going to a muggle school, it did get him in trouble with some of the upper-form students, though they tolerated him being around most of the time. He’s outgoing, adventurous, and will get bored when he’s not doing something he considers ‘fun’ for long periods of time.


Tobias looks young, even for his age. Just on the cusp of qualifying for the older year, he was always smaller than the rest of the children in his year, and this time will be no exception. However, he uses his small size to good use, ducking in and out of players on the football pitch (sometimes even with the ball.) He wears comfortable clothes and, while he is used to robes for formal occasions, he’d rather not wear them all that often.

Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.

Tobias liked the dungeons. Well, that was a bit of a misnomer. He was not in the dungeons all that often at all, but they were still fun to walk through. He loved the sound of his feet echoing on the walls, and the twisted corridors. Sometimes, he felt like he could find anything down here.

-Like a Basilisk-

Some older kid had told him there was a Basilisk in the dungeons, and he had to be really, really careful. That was only two hours ago: he had spent the time since then on his hunt. He did remember the older students giggling as he left; perhaps they meant a specific place in the dungeons, and not just The Dungeons. Wherever it was, the Basilisk was hard to find.

Suddenly, he heard something. Not a slithering, hissing sound, but something else. Footsteps? Maybe they would know where to look. It took a bit, but finally he found it -no, her- a girl his age. Just as she shouted out.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

Finally, a name! “Is Emma Birch the name of the Basilisk? I haven’t seen it yet.” That would make calling out for it so much easier. Still, he needed to introduce himself to his fellow big-game hunter. “My name’s Tobias, but call me Tobi. What’s yours?”

With two people searching, they would find it before tea time.
