Biography: (100 words minimum.)
Sisters, songs and sun. These were three of the most important nouns in Helios' life. There were many, many things Helios enjoyed about life: food, Quidditch, making friends, studying magical creatures, snogging (not necessarily in that order), it was just those three words ruled most of his world.

He was surrounded by sisters. One older and three younger. He had a brother, too, they were just more than seven years apart in age. It was his twin younger sisters that he was closest to. The pair were more than a handful, more than two handfuls actually, and they had him wrapped around their little fingers. He often sang them lullabies before bed or braided their long hair for them. It had never bothered him, in fact he found the motion somewhat soothing. The gentle back and forth of each section of hair.

It was just a bonus that having so many sisters taught him early how to treat girls the right way.

Music had been important to him from a young age. Helios couldn't quite recall what it was that had piqued his interest in it, just recalled hearing a piano playing softly; haunting yet beautiful. For him, it was mostly singing that he enjoyed. He wasn't much of a songwriter (yet) so it was mostly songs he'd grown up listening to on the wireless that he sang. He was too optimistic and too hard-working not to keep trying to write his own songs, however, and kept a somewhat battered journal with him most of the time.

Born almost in the middle of Winter, but named for a sun god, it was Summer that was Helios's favourite season. He loved the warmth and being outside after being stuck inside for the long winter months. It was almost like coming out of hibernation. Feeling the warmth of the golden sun always put him in a better mood.

Not that he was often in a bad mood, Helios was generally happy and outgoing but everyone had their darker moments. He just preferred to try to make the most out of every day, look at the positive side to every situation.

Also like the sun, Helios liked to try to brighten the day of those around him.

Reply as your character to the following:

Godric Park.

Overhead, the sky was a crisp blue, for once clear of the ever-pervasive spongy clouds and rain. The sun was a lemony-yellow presence, high in the Eastern sky, and in front of it zipped three broomsticks in a straight line, or something very like one. One... two..... three... the boys passed, their shouts of excitement echoing as they chased the snitch, a tiny shimmer reflecting the sunlight.

Far below was another, much smaller broomstick.

It trugged along the ground, hugging close to it like a sluggish choo choo train and occasionally shuttering in protest. This was because said stick was currently being occupied by a very small girl who was tugging upward on the front of it with all her might, trying to coax it into doing what it had been expressly designed NOT to do.

"John, I said wait up!" The tiny girl squealed, giving the broomstick another tug.

Begrudgingly, it drifted upward a foot, and then sank, depositing the troublesome girl safely on the ground. Janey Hurst was not pleased. In a huff, she hopped off the toy safety broom, grabbing it firmly and thrusting it handle first into the turf.

Her brother was such a beast. He NEVER let her play! She folded her arms, seething blue eyes fixing on another figure nearby.  "You!" She barked, much more sharply than she meant to.

"...Do you want to play?"

Roleplay Response:
Hogsmeade weekends were a nice escape. Not just from schoolwork and the castle itself, but from the two little terrors that now roamed the same halls as Helios. His younger twin sisters had arrived at Hogwarts and he felt it was his brotherly duty to try his best to make sure they didn't burn down the castle. At least not in their first year.

He gave them their space, he wanted them to have fun and experience Hogwarts for themselves, of course, he just didn't want their entire school years spent in detention. They did actually need to get an education too.

It felt good to feel like he wasn't babysitting today, though. He'd hung out with some friends, drinking a couple of butterbeers. Stopped by the candy store to replenish his stock of fizzing whizbees and then just walked around for a bit.

Eventually he'd made his way over to the park, just relishing in the warmth the sun was radiating today and longing for Summer to hurry up and arrive. He was sat on a bench at the park's edge, head hanging back to absorb the heat while his eyes were closed.

He didn't immediately register that the random shout of a little girl was directed at him. It did, however, catch his attention enough that he opened his eyes and slowly lifted his head. His sisters would probably be so proud of how well they'd trained him to respond to a girl's voice.

When his eyes flitted around for a moment and landed on a girl that was staring at him his face and body instantly transformed into older brother mode. He smiled warmly at her and leaned forward to place his elbows on his knees. Helios was tall and almost always put himself on his sisters' level when talking to them.

"...Do you want to play?"

Helios shook his head gently for a moment, amused, that even away from his sisters little girls found him and asked him to play.

"Sure, what would you like to play?"

How did you find us? The Easter bunny told me about this place.
