Biography: (300 words minimum.)

Kiah had left first. She was always the smartest and the most able. She had left the day Elias began his apprenticeship. Though Greenwood had not been able to discern her location in all the long years since, Elias knew she had returned to the States. She had never felt at home in the Old World.

Jianyu was the next to leave, but not in the same way. The remaining two left shortly after his funeral. They blamed Greenwood despite all of Elias' efforts to come to his defense. Their destination had been a mystery; the triplets had always been self-contained.

For four long years, it was only Greenwood and the boy - his prodigy, his chosen son. The boy who Greenwood believed would return the family's name to greatness. He was a natural wandmaker. He took to it with all the natural skill and innate talent that Greenwood lacked. Had Elias been kept at the mudblood-lover school in Scotland, he would have been the greatest wizard of a generation. So Greenwood told him time and again. Yet purity was as highly valued as greatness.

When he fell in love with Sibylle, all of Greenwood's plans fell apart. Elias felt himself grow defiant to the old man's will. Sibylle was, after all, a pureblood. Why should he not love her?

When it came time to choose, Elias allowed himself to be swept away in a year of bliss. Yet the terrible control which Greenwood exerted over the family name which Elias had come to accept was greater by far than petty love. The daughter that Sibylle had given him in her final days would never be safe as long as Greenwood could reach her.

Elias returned to the land of his birth to seek the freedom which had been forbidden him his entire life, and to find a promise of it for his child.

Option Two -
The snow had been falling steadily all morning and it didn't look like it was going to stop any time soon. Joshua Campbell scrunched his face up in a frown as he lifted his gaze to look to the sky. Snow. It really was quite a bother.

And it certainly didn't make it better that Diagon Alley seemed to be getting more and more crowded. Joshua sighed and pointed his wand at the large box that was currently placed on the doorstep of his shop. He had to get going. He had an order to deliver.

"Wingardium Leviosa!" The elderly man muttered and watched the box hover in the air for a moment. Honestly, did St. Mungo's really need that much tinsel? And with glitter of all things? He sighed again. If it hadn't been for the rather convincing stamp on the order, he would have been likely to believe it had been a prank by one of those orphaned rascals living up there. 

Oh well, there was no point in waiting. Joshua deftly stirred the box down the doorstep and out onto the street, carefully levitating it above the heads of the crowd.

"Coming through! Coming through!" His voice sounded over the chatter of the crowd. "Keep out! Move ahead! Go on!" This was going way too slow. People were in the way and walking like they had all day! He huffed. Luckily the road was down hill.

"Coming through! Coming th--- arrrgh!" Joshua let out a loud shout as his feet suddenly slipped in the snow and sent him, the box, and several long strands of tinsel tumbling into the person who had been walking in front of him.

"For Merlin's sake!" Joshua muttered angrily as he hurried to his feet again, red and gold tinsel now decorating his black coat. "I am so sorry! This blasted snow!" He looked apologetic at the person he had crashed into.

Roleplay Response:
Walking with a drawn wand was a good way to get noticed, but also a good way to avoid unwanted conversation. Despite all effort to walk naturally, the sleek young wizard knew he drew glances. More than that. Someone was following him.

Keep your eyes ahead, Elias. Listen, Elias.

The man was old, but his reflection in the shopfront windows was interfered with by a damnedable assortment of boxes which hovered through the air. Elias wished he could wheel about and curse the boxes into the sky, to turn the old man onto his back and -

You're being paranoid, Elias.

This was not him. He was hiding. He wouldn't approach. Elias' balled first loosened just as the aged oaf slammed into him. For a moment it seemed the young wizard would lose his footing as well.

"You- great- bloody- fool-" he directed the wand at the man's stomach, allowing the implied threat work its own special kind of magic.

It wasn't him. It wasn't him. Still, Elias felt the wrong reverberate through his bones. He was a Greenwood. He would have respect.

"This cloak is Acromantula fur. Worth more than you make in -"

No, Elias. Keep your temper. Keep your head down.

"Pick up your things."
