Application for Hogwarts School


Name: Coen Cassius Carlisle

Birthday: July 27th, 1941.

Hometown: Carlisle Cumbria

Bloodline: Pureblood

Magical Strength (pick one): Charms

Magical Weakness (pick one): Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): First/Second


Coen Cassius Carlisle was born as the youngest child of Benjamin Carlisle and Olivia Carlisle née Finch. His birth marked an end to the needless attempts for an heir to his name.

Coen Carlisle is the sixth born child of proud parents, both of whom had prosperous careers. His father being a respected and veteran auror, and his mother also having taken a role in the Ministry of Magic shortly after graduating.

Born near the misty waves of the sea, his early childhood consisted of watching and learning from a distance the ways and tactics of the wizarding world, a world that revolves around him quite vividly and that occurred frequently.

His family coming from old and established roots provided him a safe and quiet upbringing in the County of Cumbria. It was here where he first experienced life among his siblings.

The bickering and disputes was a normal thing among Benjamin's children as they constantly found ways to irritate each-other. Each and every squabble was soon forgotten as they carried on the innocence of their childhood with horse-play. 

Despite that these fights happened quite regularly over the simplest and smallest of things which would send one of the siblings over the edge, they were a united front. Although they fought among each-other, they were quick to defend each other with lies. 

That was until one by one, they were sent of to Hogwarts. Coen, was the very last child and as such he once more wished to be apart of the life of his siblings and family. He was to become a man of the Carlisle lineage.

Note: This section is optional, and is up to you to complete.

House Request: Ravenclaw

Coen is known to be a rather kind and warm individual but mostly as of recently, he is known to be quite serious whenever it revolves around his family and affairs. Overall he is a pretty decent kid and doesn't give off his emotions off too quickly unless he wishes for them to be known and heard.  He's a professional poker-player when it comes down to his expressions. The hazing his sisters gave him for being a crybaby had paid off.

There is an air of stone-cold resolve surrounding little Cassius. It is clear just by looking at him that he was born to become prosperous and eventually span out into something that every male wish to be. He holds nothing but love for his people and kin and wants nothing more than to see them safe, especially his siblings and parents. Many at having come see his personality lacking in humor and being similar in warmth to a rock left in the shade, but to the few, he is close with, a rare smile is coveted, and known to be genuine.


The kid stands quite tall although quite average for the sprouting teens, especially boys that are growing and expanding. Having strong genes is something that is very obvious as his features are stark and very outlined. He has a very defined jaw, creating a balance with the length and width of his facial features. Although he has that certain roundness to his face as of right now, it is still apparent that the boy has kept in shape with sports and hobbies and lives a play hard and motivated lifestyle with a life of routine, as they are portrayed through his physical appearance. Sports are his thing.

Option I:

The eerie silence that had accompanied him since he had entered the dungeons was a real startling factor; If only he hadn’t been dared by that third year, he wouldn’t be here. It was his luck that he had been challenged to prove himself to the older boys.They had even offered him a different choice but his constant refusal to back down from the challenge had earned him a quick visit to the dungeons, and as such he would prove his worth. He totally wasn’t a coward.

Darkness was everything and everywhere, as he maneuvered through the desolate and complex maze that was the dungeons below the Castle. Coen slowly creeped his way through the gloom, praying that he wouldn’t encounter something out of this world. He was scared but he had nobody to thank but himself for running his mouth. If only he had stayed quiet and allowed them to tease him.

The ‘adventures’ of Coen Carlisle were going as great as possible until he recalled that they had been egging him on to visit the very same place which a supposed apparition of a ghost appeared. Now here's the thing, he wasn’t -that- gullible. Sure he had heard stories of Hogwarts, but people dying here? Hardly could happen, as this was surely the most protected and safest places of -all- time. At least he hoped so at this point in time, travelling into the heart of the mentioned place for the forsaken.

A shout pierced through the veil of peace and quiet that loomed over everything down in these dangerous crypts that caused him to almost jump out of his shoes.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

Frozen to the ground, paralyzed in fear of something coming out of the shadows and attacking him caused him to stammer to himself. Surely nobody could be as foolish as he to venture forth and visit the most evilest places on this round earth. It took him more than a few seconds for the startled boy to collect himself before hestantily calling out to the voice in the shadows.

‘’H-hello!? -.. Who is there! Show yourself vile spirit, I’m not scared of you!

Student Applications / Jason Calloway
« Last post by aarushi_kayyyy on 14/12/2017 at 00:04 »
Application for Hogwarts School


Name: Jason Percival Calloway

Birthday: 12 July

Hometown: Camberwell, Southwark (London)

Muggleborn / Halfblood / Pureblood / Unknown

Magical Strength (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): Year 3 (and year 4?)

   Jason Percival Calloway was born in the small town of Camberwell in London on the twelfth of July. Born to a halfblood father, Jacob Calloway, and a pureblood mother, Evelyn Calloway, Jason is the eldest of three sons. He is two years senior to his brother, Percival Calloway, and four years senior to his second brother, Zachary Calloway. Both of Jason’s parents previously resided in the wizarding village of Godric’s Hollow, but decided to move to the muggle world of London prior to Jason’s birth so their children could receive a muggle education in the years leading up to their time at Hogwarts. Neither of Jason’s parents had particularly unpleasant views on muggles, muggleborns, or half-breeds. In fact, Jacob and Evelyn engraved a strong sense of equality and respect for all in each of their children. Jason’s grandparents, however, strongly disapproved of their children's’ decision to move to the muggle world.
   As a student in muggle school, Jason always excelled in all subjects spare one. Mathematics was never one of his strong suits. Aside from academics, Jason was also particularly skilled in the muggle sports of basketball and lacrosse. From a magical perspective, Jason’s childhood was far from dull. His father was a dedicated fan of the Falmouth Falcons while his mother strongly supported the Appleby Arrows. The strong support of each respective team by Jason’s parents stirred many an argument in the Calloway household, in which case Jason and his brothers would quietly retreat from the conflict and go out to play Quidditch on their own. During large family reunions, the children of the families would always get together and hold an inter-family Quidditch tournament. Jason was able to play the position of Chaser very well, and his team never lost a game. By the time Jason had to leave to attend Hogwarts, he had accumulated many Muggle friends, to all of which he had say that he would be going to a prestigious boarding school in Scotland.
   When Jason recieved his acceptance letter to Hogwarts at the age of eleven, his excitement was only subsided by the disappointment his younger brothers displayed when they learned their elder brother would have to leave. Although Jason did miss his family a great deal once he went to Hogwarts, he never once felt like he was away from home. He was Sorted into Gryffindor House in his first year, and went on to play as a Chaser on the Gryffindor Quidditch Team in his second year. Over his course at Hogwarts, Jason bonded particularly with two other Gryffindor boys in his year. Halfblood Cole Brazlock and Pureblood Roden Fawley partook in many adventures with their friend Jason- whether it be ridiculous dares, duels, or any other form of dangerous rule-breaking. Jason, Roden, and Cole managed to form a rivalry against a popular Slytherin boy named Ronnie Freewell, and therefore against most of the Slytherins. (The Gryffindor-Slytherin rivalry continues I suppose). Jason accidentally humiliated Ronnie as the result of a dare, causing Cole, Roden, and himself to get off on the wrong foot with Ronnie. Discovering Ronnie’s arrogant personality and constant expression of pureblood and halfblood supremacy, however, Jason, Cole, and Roden decided they never would have desired to be friends with Ronnie anyway. From there on, a series of exchanges between the two groups only caused their hatred for each other to grow ever-more.
   With his first and second years at Hogwarts well behind him, Jason is now eagerly anticipating his return to Hogwarts. With Jason’s return also comes his younger brother Percy’s start at Hogwarts. Having heard many stories about Ronnie, and being the prankster he is, Percy is more than ready to try out some of his brilliantly-thought out schemes along with his elder brother and his friends on the boy who would be the perfect target.

Note: This section is optional, and is up to you to complete.

House Request: Gryffindor

Tell us a bit about your character’s personality (likes, dislikes, fears, etc.) What are they like on a good day versus a bad one? Is your character particularly cheerful? Do they hate sunlight?

   Jason is overall a very pleasant boy to be around. As a person, he is very outgoing, daring, and funny. In Jason’s opinion, one of the best ways to make friends is by making people laugh, which Jason can do with ease. From a young age, Jason has had a sharp tongue, which often got him into trouble. Sometimes he can be impulsive and rash, especially when the matter comes to his friends, his family, or his own dignity. Jason hates pity, but loves sympathy. He is an ambivert, and connects well with people. Though he is loud and humorous, Jason is very understanding and gentle when someone needs him. Jason finds he gives the best advice to others on their dilemmas, but cannot manage to give advice to himself when he needs it. His thought monologue usually runs very deep, and Jason has always wanted to be a part of something bigger. Growing up in the muggle world with muggle-accepting wizard parents has made it so that Jason generally accepts muggleborns, muggles, and half-breeds. But from all the times Jason has been around his aunts as a child- when they filled his head with ideas such as muggleborns are scum- the occasional ‘Mudblood’ sometimes slips from Jason’s mouth. Despite this, Jason is typically relatable and sweet, but can be fierce if required to be.

Briefly describe your character's appearance (hair color, build, stature, etc.) What effect does it have on their personality? For example, does the shy Ravenclaw girl secretly dye her hair black because she hates her natural blonde? Does the curly-haired Gryffindor use charms to hide his freckles?

   At the age of 13, Jason is a 5’6” tall boy with dark blond hair and icy blue eyes. His blond hair is typically worn a mess, as he does not give it much attention, yet it remains smooth and silky and people are always telling him his hair is gorgeous. His blue eyes work for him in multiple ways; sometimes they make him seem playful and innocent while other times they make him appear mature (Jason can be both playful and innocent and mature depending on the circumstance and his mood). He has a light skin tone with the faintest hint of a tan. His build is strong and he has small muscles in his arms, and he is light as well. Handsome is an understatement, and his appearance definitely played a part in earning Jason so many friends. His light but strong build has helped Jason win many races and complete many dares that over half the other children in his year could not have done. His appearance definitely helps to boost Jason’s confidence, and he was never self-conscious about how he looks.

Option 2:

That rat of his was in for it now.

The gray little rascal had disappeared from his clutches at breakfast. Again.

Before Hugh even knew what was happening, Merlin had shot across the floor, somehow managing to avoid all the feet walking across the hall and had escaped through the open doors.

Which meant that Hugh was now stomping through rows of flowers and other various flora, searching for the small creature. It was like the rat knew Hugh was allergic to most flowers. Merlin always chose to run to the gardens whenever he got away from Hugh. It was as if the rat did not want to have him for an owner.

Hugh had named his pet Merlin because he had hoped the powerful name would give the rat more incentive to be more than a rat. Not that he expected Merlin to change into a wizard or anything, but rats were just so...useless, for the most part. With a name like Merlin, Hugh thought it might give the rat purpose.

The only purpose Merlin seemed to have was getting away from Hugh as often as possible.

As the fifth year trudged into the second row of flowers, not taking much care to avoid trampling the first row, he felt the first sneeze building up pressure in his nose and behind his eyes.

"You blasted rat! Where are you?"

He pulled apart a section of bright red flowers; he didn't know what they were called because he despised flowers, and ducked his head low to peer into the depths of the flowerbed. It was moving closer in proximity to the flowers that finally did it. Hugh took in three great breaths and then let out an almighty sneeze. It was strong enough to disturb some of the dirt on the ground before him.

Groaning, he stood up again and wiped his nose on his sleeve. It was as he was turning his head, his nose running up and down his arm, that movement in his peripheral vision caught his attention. Normally one who preferred to put his best face forward, Hugh was a bit embarrassed to be caught wiping his runny nose on his robes.

Nevertheless, Hugh put on his best haughty voice. albeit a bit thickly with his plugged nose and said, "Can I help you with something? It is not polite to stare."

Jason stood tall in the thick bed of flowers, gaping at the the boy who had just run through and spoiled many of the plants in the caretaker’s garden. In reality, Jason had a growing temptation to burst out laughing right then and there, but he didn’t. The boy looked like he needed assurance at the moment, and laughing at him probably wasn’t the smartest idea.

“You said your rat’s name was Merlin?” The boy who had tried to seem haughty just a few moments ago now stood there with a blank face, not saying anything at all.

 Jason took the silence for a ‘yes,’ as he was almost certain he had heard the boy holler ‘Merlin’ as he was running through the flowers.

Jason swiftly drew his wand from his robe and pointed it at a point just a little farther down the flower bed. He quickly tuned out all the sights and noises around him, concentrating on the one spot.

“Wingardium Leviosa,” he said firmly. He lifted his wand upward slightly, and what seemed like a small ball of black fur rose into the air in the area where Jason had pointed his wand.
Jason drew his wand toward his chest, and the rat flew swiftly toward him and landed in his palm. It was a fidgety one. Jason held onto it tight enough that it wouldn’t escape again, but not so tight that he hurt it.

Jason had honestly considered casting a Summoning Charm with ‘Accio’ instead of ‘Wingardium Leviosa,’ but the Summoning Charm was a spell students learn in their fourth years. Jason’s father had taught the charm to him when he was in his second year, and Jason could perform the spell well, but he was not too sure how effective it would have been in this case.

Jason walked toward the boy who lost the rat and held out his hand to him.

“Here,” he said with a smile.

Been away so thought I might re-claim

Character name: Geryon Crowley
Face claim first name: DJ
Face claim last name: Ashba
Link to accepted application/completed thread: what is time

Character name: Austin Felix Nadeau

Previous and/or Current Character(s) if applicable: Sylvia Renn, Elsie Märchen, Lynn Basile, Artemis Foxe (WIP)

Character age: 25 (DOB: July 1st, 1927)

Character education: Graduated from Horned Serpent, Ilvermorny. Learned under various tutors until beginning to teach in 1947. Supposedly taught how to make The Best Poutine but has since lost the certificate to prove qualification.

Strength and weaknesses: Austin is nothing if not dedicated, as he will throw himself fully into something once committed and be determined to see it through to whatever end may come. Some may see this a bit of stubbornness as he refuses to give up and can have difficulty see the futility of his current path. That being said, his commitment to completion leads to a high degree of creativity in order to get the job done, and a flexibility to work on short timelines (also born out of his current career of a substitute teacher). Austin is generally extremely patient and polite (perhaps to a fault), trying to ensure everyone does well and enjoys their time. (Though, he is noticeably awkward while doing so.) With his positive attitude, Austin determinedly stays away from conflict and would likely start crying if someone began to yell at him, more much comfortable with passive-aggression that is more common where it’s too cold to move your face much. Though he would never admit it, Austin does have one fatal weakness: an angry Canadian Goose.

Physical description: Austin is fairly average when it comes to appearance. Standing at 6' 1" (he will fight you on that inch), Austin is of fairly light build and even lighter complexion. With dark brown hair, glasses, and facial hair that may be tinged prematurely with grey in the corners (that he Transfigures each morning), Austin looks a bit older than his fairly young 25 years but he likes to call himself 'distinguished'. With a tendency to fade into the background, Austin wears plain clothes, with a poorly knotted tie and shoes that have seen a few rough winters. Seen wearing shorts and sandals (with socks if it’s below ten degrees) much too early in the Spring and way too late into the Fall, Austin seems almost impervious to cold, but fear not, when the snow is threatening to fall through the windows and the wind is enough to blow someone over, Austin will pull out his trusty toque and matching scarf.

Personality: Austin is Very Awkwardly Canadian. With a passionate love for his home-country, Austin is essentially most things people expect from someone hailing from the land of Winter. Polite and unassuming, Austin tries to fit in as best he can without being awkward (which leads to him being very awkward). He just wants everyone to have fun and be happy, more than willing to be the cause is that to happen. Having many Canadian phrases and references, he is constantly astounded by the naivety of Britain when it comes to All Things Canadian including to blessing of cheese curds and True Maple Syrup.

Hopes and dreams. Why are you teaching at Hogwarts?: Austin has two main reasons for wanting to teach at Hogwarts; to prove to Ilvermorny he deserves more than a temporary substitute professor position and to open a magical school in Canada (and be the Headmaster). Eh, okay three reasons. He wishes to return to Ilvermorny one day and believes working at the esteemed Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to regain a professor role. He wishes to open a magical school in Canada because he believes it is the Best Place Ever, but also because of the unique magic that has the potential to be developed within the space between their mountain range and beautiful ravines. The major schools offer specializations and uniqueness that allows them to be at the forefront of magical education and Austin wants to find the powerful contribution that Canada could be to the future of magic.

Biography: Austin had a very normal childhood. To the point that he doesn’t really talk about it that much because there weren’t a lot of significant things. He enjoyed ice-fishing with his parents, playing shinny with his friends, and eating the whole bag of ketchup chips to blame on his younger sister. His parents were both magical, though there was a couple Muggles in distant relatives, a squib of a cousin, and he was fairly certain his great-great-grandmother had been a Muggle, though there’s no direct evidence of it. He was raised in a mostly-Muggly neighbourhood, meaning most of his young life was spent explaining away the odd things that happened with the sporadic magic young wizards have to deal with.

It was almost a relief to go to a magical school where everyone had the same oddity running in their veins, but it had really upset Austin to be so far away from home for most of the year. His time at Ilvermorny was uneventful, keeping away from girls, keeping away from guys, and generally trying to stay out of the way as he once apologized to a wall he’d bumped into. It goes to say that his grades, quietly competitive for the top of the class, spoke louder than he ever did.

Upon graduating, Austin returned to Canada in an effort to become involved in the private magical education occuring in richer homes. He dreamed of being a private tutor, working with one student at a time, and being able to tailor the program to their learning style. He had seen the amount of students that fell through the cracks of generalized teaching and wanted it be part of the change. However, Austin was unable to land a permanent position and was recruited back to Ilvermorny with a promise of higher pay and more steady hours.

His time at Ilvermorny was the most exciting of his life, seeing the other side of the school as a professor and being exposed to almost every subject as he stepped in a substitute. He waited every year for an open position but was never selected to move up to a full time professor when the time came, likely due to his innate ability to ruin every interview he’d ever been to. However, it was the year of 1930 that his life changed.

That summer he was tactfully told not to return to Ilvermorny the following term and politely asked never to come back after the Incident. The Incident involved Austin, a very angry Canadian Goose, poutine and the current Headmaster. He refuses to speak of it to this day, saying the experience would almost equally scar anyone he told. Thus, no one really knows the details of what happened on that fateful day, other than Austin was removed from Ilvermorny and found his one true weakness.

It just happened to be the same time Hogwarts was looking for a substitute professor and Austin heard through the teaching grapevine. With the chance to prove himself again as a teacher, Austin relocated to London (temporarily) to bade his time until Ilvermorny realized how much they lost with him and begged asked for him back.

(Please respond to to this in third person past tense. Do not write the other characters' reactions. Only your own.)

It was the largest office in Hogwarts and, perhaps to students and newcomers, the most intimidating. The shelves were filled with various odds and ends, with a place of honor for the Sorting Hat, and the walls held all the portraits of past Headmasters and Headmistresses.

In the middle of the room sat a large desk. Everything was in order, for the current occupant had always despised a messy desk. It was the sign of a messy mind, and she had always favored neatness.

A clock sat on the desk, which currently showed the time to be 2:05. The meeting was supposed to begin at 2:00 precisely.

Along with order, Anneka valued punctuality. She was a very busy woman these days. Even during the summer, she had a number of matters to attend to. Interviewing and hiring staff was only of those matters. The newest potential member of her staff wasn't making a good impression.

She paced the room, black heels clicking against the stone floor. When the door finally opened, Anneka turned, her expression reminiscent of a Russian winter. "You are late."

Explain yourself was what her face said.

Roleplay Response:

Oh, Morgana, he was going to be in big trouble. Huge trouble. Being invited to a game of shinny and not having skates with you trouble. He sprinted through the castle as best he could, taking advantage of his long legs as he charged up the steps almost three at a time. Austin knew three minutes ago he was going to be at least five minutes late and it definitely was not helping that time was moving faster than he was. “Beaver’s tail,” he muttered as he skidded around a corner, narrowly avoiding a ghost that he waved an apology to before running through them as they failed to move fast enough. (Ice shot through his body briefly, but it was familiar, a reminder of when his coat would lift up and the gust of wind would perfectly whip up his spine.)

“Headmistress!” Austin practically yelled as he burst through the door, right as the woman turned with an expression that could make cheese curdle (in the bad way, not the good poutine-melt-y-goodness way). He gulped audibly as his face settled into one of anxiety, bobbing his head with her statement.

“I am! I am, I am so so so so so so so so so so sorry, Ann-Professor Ivanova, it is so unprofessional of me. Um, but, you see, I was on my way here, and and this flock! A whole flock of them! They wouldn’t move from the courtyard!” His hands wrung together as he subconsciously tried to make himself smaller, shoulder folding towards himself. “And and, I was going to walk around them, really, and well it didn’t really work well because you see they must have smelled by muffin. I had to hex them! I hexed the geese!” He threw his hands up to his face in shame, mumbling through them, “It was terrible. They weren’t the other geese I know. They didn’t know what was coming!”

Dropping his hands (now nervously fiddling with the wand precariously stuck in his belt), Austin hesitated briefly before moving closer to the desk, wand shaking slightly as it waved to produce a few sheets of parchment. “I did bring lesson plans though! We should, um, make this quick. I should go clean that up … eehhh, should I go now? I could go now. Pukwudgie, I have to go now, don’t I. Someone else might run into them and oh by polar bear’s foot, who knows what would happen. Don’t want another Incident, eh? I’ll go now --” and Austin began his half-turn to leave.
