Biography:

The "Wolf" family was not a very well known family because they knew how to hide their nature. Nero and Luna, Dante's parents, were extremely dangerous and cold-blooded Wizards. They both attended Hogwarts, where they met, and not to be surprised, Nero was assigned Slytherin (as his whole family was) and Luna, Ravenclaw (as her whole family was). Pure-blood people where love became madness, with a Slytherin mind-induced to Luna- and the wish to clear all muggle-borns from the Wizard World, for them not to be pure. After they succeeded at Hogwarts they started to cult the dark arts, joint different groups of bad people and started to do bad things, really bad things. Nero was not mad, he knew exactly what he wanted and how he wanted it, and persuaded Luna to follow him, as for she was in love with him. They decided to have a child to perpetuate the pureblood legacy and wishing for their descendant to continue their work if something happened to them. Dante was born.

From a very early age, he was taught dark arts and taught how to disrespect those who were not pure. Dante had witnessed so many crimes, as he was usually taken with them to be "instructed", he will never forget how he saw death for the first time when he was 6, when his father took the life of a 4 years old boy. Although they moved really often so they were not discovered, their house was in Standford-upon-Avon, where they used the river and several caves to hide themselves and their secrets. All kind of snakes were all over the place at their home, as a method of protection. Dante's father had the ability to talk and influence the snakes' will, as he was a descendant of Salazar Slytherin and passed the inherit ability to his descendants. Not to be surprised by his desire to extinguish every single trace of non-pure blood.

On Dante's 9th birthday his story truly began. Dante, who started to question his parents and why they were doing what they were doing, was taken to a "purge" as his father used to call them. Nero spotted a half-blood family and wanted to get rid of them. The task was simple: go, exterminate and return. But it had a little twist. Nero wasted no time and as soon as he arrived the location, he broke in, and cursed the adults with Avada Kedavra, by the time Dante and his mum got in the house, there was only one person left, a child of about the same age as Dante. Nero was pointing at the kid with his wand all excited when he looked back at Dante and commanded him to finish the work. He handled him a knife with a snake carved in the handle and asked him to finish what he started. Dante had been taught for his whole life that half-bloods should be exterminated but he recently started to think that was not right. He got closer, took the knife and approached the kid. Dante turned around and looked at his mother, who expressed sorrow in her look and was waiving her head and he could tell that she did not want him to do it. Dante looked back to the face of the kid that stood before him, crossing eyes with his mad father once more, and raised the knife to proceed. Dante could not tell if it was fear what was over his body, or the influence of a dark spell. When he was about to perform, afraid of his own father killing him for not be loyal to his commitment, his mother intervened disarming Nero, taking Dante away and leaving the child live. Nero, full of fury started to chase them both, convinced to kill them as for him they had lost their purpose. So many traces of dark magic were left in that very specific place so the Ministry was fully aware that something was going on and wasted no time marching to the destination. Luna and Dante had come to a dead-end after all the running, and there was nowhere to go now. Luna knew for sure what Nero was up to so she turned around and look at Dante, handling him an enchanted book with a note inside. She looked at him and said "You're better than this. I love you". She let go off the book, which was indeed a Portkey, and Dante heard his dad casting Avada Kedavra.

The situation and the Portkey travelling have made Dante vomit and faint in front of a house it didn't seem familiar at all. After opening his eyes again, he was in bed, looking everywhere around. He had been taken to his aunt, who he didn't know she even existed. Anul, Dante's aunt, gave him a brief update of the situation and a warm cup of tea. That place was very cozy and felt truly awkward to him, he had never been treated nicely.
For the next days, Anul told Dante all about Hogwarts and that she was really waiting for him to receive a letter of admission and that it was sad that it was only a matter of time that all this happened, but everything had come to an end, for his Dad had been taken to Azkaban secretly-the Ministry doesn't want to infuse fear in people's heart- and it was time to move on. After all, Dante was only a child.

Finally, and for the next two years, Dante was living in a friendly environment, reading books and studying hard to prepare himself to Hogwarts. In the end, his whole mother's family has been Ravenclaw, so there was no better way to spend his days waiting than reading books, learning some magic, and enjoying his time with his new family.
Nights were not easy for Dante, as almost every day he dreamt with snakes talking to him, crimes, and his own father killing his mother, making him wake up and he would start pray not to be placed in Slytherin if he made it to Hogwarts, to continue his mother's legacy and be a proud student of the intelligent house of Ravenclaw.

First time

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.

Option II:
Dante had that nightmare again and woke up sweating and with no appetite, so rather than go and have breakfast he decided that it would be a good idea to have some fresh air from an early morning's breeze. "How long am I going to suffer this, it has been more than two years now..." he was thinking while he was getting up.

He opened up his wardrobe and selected nice and clean robes from there and started to polish the shoes he was thinking to wear. After being all dressed up, he combed his hair, and sprayed three times a lavender-based perfume, his favorite plant. He brushed his teeth to finish the morning ritual and he was all ready to go. He came across with some people in the common rooms that greet him, and Dante saluted them back, he was too stressed out by that nightmare that all he wanted was some fresh air. Walking down the corridors he found some teachers and a bunch of students but luckily it was early enough for not to be too overwhelming.

He finally reached the gardens and stopped by some flowers to smell the scent and decide which perfume will he be using the following day. "I think it will be Frankincense tomorrow" He stayed there for a few more minutes trying to relax his mind and focus for the day he had to come. When he was about to leave he returned to smell the lavender. Lavender was his favorite because his aunt had it all over her place, and smelling it remembered him how warm a place can be and that no matter how many dark moments you might go through, there are always warm places that you might call home.

His trance smelling the plants got interrupted when Dante felt something running between his feet. When he looked down he saw a gray little rascal running up and down, pretty fast, and he couldn't help not to shout a squeal- Dante, not the rat, although the rat was probably squealing too, but for how loud Dante's squeal was, you would not have been able to hear it. It was more of the unexpected visitor he was receiving than the creature indeed, because after all, Dante had been living with snakes all his childhood, so he was not afraid of rats.

Dante thought that he had seen the rat before and that probably belonged to a student, because missing rats were events that happened around Hogwarts quite often, so he decided he had to help and chase after the rat immediately. The rat was faster than expected and the chase took place all over the garden and Dante tried to be as careful as he could so he wouldn't destroy or step on plants he shouldn't be stepping on. Not destroying the garden was being successful but catching the rat was not. Dante started to reach out his wand and try a Levitation Charm on the little creature, but when he finally was about to perform it, he lost sight of it. -Damn it! I almost had it

Right after that, Dante heard a tremendous sneeze coming across the garden, not far at all from where he was, and he decided to approach and see what was going on. That sneeze was not from the rat, that was for sure, and he didn't think that anybody could be there at breakfast time-of course Dante didn't realize that it could be the owner looking for his pet- so he cautiously came forward and stare at that person, all red nosed, that was talking him.

"Name's Dante. I almost had that rat and your sneeze made me lose it, what are you doing here, isn't it breakfast time?" - Dante didn't realize that he was being a little rude, but the fact that he didn't succeed at getting that creature pissed him off, and once he had made a friend he is very loyal and a really good friend, but until so, he might look a little arrogant.

Hi Dante!

I loved reading your application. Dante has quite an interesting story! However, there are a few issues that will need to be addressed before we can get you accepted.

First, while traumatic pasts are more than welcome, we do enforce a PG-13 site rating.Descriptions of how Nero killed a toddler and tried to make Dante stab another child are an infringement of our guidelines on violence:
Quote
  • Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments may be permitted if justified by the context.
  • Abuse of minors should not be directly described or mentioned.
  • Easily accessible weapons should not be glamorised.

You don't need to rewrite Dante's background entirely, simply edit the concerned passages to go less into detail and remove any mention of violence against children.

Secondly, in Dante's biography, you state:
Quote
Dante's father had the ability to talk and influence the snakes' will, as he was a descendant of Salazar Slytherin and passed the inherit ability to his descendants.
Per our site rules, we do not allow our members to be related to characters from the books, even historical ones who still exist in our alternate universe's canon. If you could edit that part out of your bio, that would be greatly appreciated.

Additionally, speaking Parseltongue is a special ability that requires you to submit a special request. You don't need to make any changes to your bio for this, but if ever you'd like Dante to inherit his father's ability, or if you'd like to play Nero as a character in the future, this is something to keep in mind.

Finally, in your RP sample, you control Hugh's rat. If this were a real RP with a real player, this would be considered powerplaying. Hugh might have had a specific personality written for his rat, or a different idea of where he wanted his pet to be hiding. If you could edit your sample so that you aren't dictating the rat's actions, you'll be good to go.

Once you've made the required changes, please post your entire revised application below and we'll be happy to give it another look. If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to pm myself or another admin or contact us on discord (find me @Arianne#9796) and we'll be happy to help!

He learnt about his mother's family in those 2 years, he had never really been able to speak openly with his mum if his father was around, but he enjoyed their times alone, she didn't seem as mad as his father. He learnt that Luna was a very powerful Legeremagus with a peculiar ability to change herself at her will, having been using this ability for dark purposes under the influence of Neros. Dante would learn later that those wizards and witches are called Metamorphomagus, but at that time he was only thinking that how such a good and warm person could have been with someone as evil as his father was. His aunt could only reply that love is blind and that maybe, and only maybe, one day he would understand.
Nights were not easy for Dante, as almost every day he dreamt with snakes talking to him, crimes, and his own father killing his mother, making him wake up and he would start to pray not to be placed in Slytherin if he made it to Hogwarts, to continue his mother's legacy and be a proud student of the intelligent house of Ravenclaw.
