Biography:
 Arthur Underwood was a mid level wizard and that was a long strech for a mid level. None of hes close ones realy knew that because he had surrounded himself with moguls. Hes other half Margarit Mandrake only knew that he worked in the ministry of wizardry , and that made him close to a god in her eyes. There was just one need he couldnt satisfie over the years. He tried hes best you better believe it, but afther geting a cat, two owls, cople of hounds and even a whole stable of horses, he came to a realisations that no matter how majesctic and attention craving the animal was it wount replace a child. So afther a masterfull plan of pushing out a story about "hes child being aboard to pick up wisdoms you can only absorb in the more rural regions" came the visit to the "Blue Mara's home for orphans" that will be known just for a handfull of people.

 "Blue Mara's home for orphans" was a gift from Im prety sure you know who to her native vilage Lielvārde, Latvia. Arthur opened door for Margarita and they had arrived just in time for they're tour of the place. Arthur would have preffered not to visit this establishment because he had no intrest in the new pass time of Margarita. She realy felt it doring the tour it felt like Arthur was disapointed in her, ofcours it wasnt her fault and they bouth knew it. When they finaly got to meet the children Margarita was radiating of joy. Arthur rly was just waiting for her to pick one when he noticed a boy in the corner of the room sitting on a cheap box buy a window talking to a rat. Arthur turned to the lady who gave them the tour with a disgracefull tone spiting out "we dont need a half runing horse who is sick and slow right out of the gate" with his finger pointing at the boy with the dirty rat. His tone had taken a form with supiriority in it "the poor living with the rats are always sick". The lady was quick to her relpy "oh no sir thats our first orphan hes been here for 3 years now since the first day this home became an orphanage, and I swear he trained the rat, we used to kill them but we gave up afther 7th one they obey him to the letter and as soon as we kill it a new one appears". Arthur looked at the boy again and shouted "whats ur name boy".
Boy turned hes head glimsing at Arthur with hes ligh brown eyes. They're sights met and as they did both of theyr faces asumed expression of true suprise. The little boy knew he wasnt the only one who was different and Arthur saw a son who will attend hogwarts just like he did, who will be amongs the ranks of Hufflepuff, just as he did. He saw hes only chance at a successor a way to have hes name remember becous hes brow eyes he had seen a pair just like those on one of hes schoolmates, one he still envys to this day for hes talants in magic. It was settled just as the single word from boys mouth landed on hes ears "Nate".
Papers sayd John Nathaniel Mandrake, John was arthurs fathers name and Nathaniel was requered becouse Margarite called him Nate hes whole life. The next several years went by in a flash. Nate was growing very fast and was a truly quet child always playing with the animals not just the ones Arthur and Margarita owned he seemed to know everything about all of them. Arthur hated the fact that hes son was so savage like a little chimp. Made him go through endless amount of private lessons in French, biology, Propper manners and many others. When Nate reached age of 10 Arthur for the first time in Nates life spent more than 5 minutes togehter with just him. It was the time Artur decided its time to tell Nate about the world in who they both should be in. About how magic worked what it is and showed a bit of it too. When Nate heard about all the creatures Arthur was telling about he was drawn to him like a fly to the light. So depretly cathcing every word of Arthurs looking on to him like someone all mighty. It sure fed Arthurs ego so these talks became longer and occured more offthen till it was time for Nate to visit place more amazing than hes wildest dreams... Hogwarts.

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."

Nate looked a bit confused he did not expect to hear such a tone in a mans voice in this situations so with the highest sincerity he sayed "sorry buddy but ur leaking its bound to attract some attention". Then nate opened outer pocket of hes rag looking pouch showed him a scary looking albino rat sitting in a pile of sunflower seeds grabed pass the rat saying "sorry Hound I get you some more later" and hes hand came out of the pouch with a handfull of sunflower seeds. Hes extended hand was streched out to Hugh. "If theres a thing rats cant live without it sunflower seeds just give some to your rat and its bound to stick to you" Nate sayed with a goofy smile on hes face.

Hey, John, and welcome to the site! :D Your application is lovely (I really love the thought that went into John's biography—it's so colorful!), but there's just one thing I'd like to ask you to do before we can continue processing it.

Please read your application through one more time, as there are more than a few spelling mistakes. It's a great application, but the frequency of errors makes it very difficult to read. If you could just put the application through a word processor (which should highlight the errors and let you fix them) or use the spelling check function on our site (it's one button away from the 'Post' button when you're making a new post), that'd be just super! :)

Once you've done this, please post the entire edited application below so that we can give it another look.

Thank you! <3
