The Past



Generations ago the Mays were once an influential pureblood family. They were rich and well known in the pureblood community. They were elite and highly biased against halfbloods and muggleborns.

But Aurelius May (Rex and Roy's grandfather) wasn't good with money. He made several bad investments and lost a lot of money. His son, Orville, had a gambling problem and when he inherited the family fortune, he reduced it to almost nothing. By the time Rex and Roy were born, the family had sold their mansion and moved into a cheaper house in a muggle city.

The Mays' lavish lifestyle was a thing of the past, as well as their respect among purebloods.

Rex accepted this and was content to live an average life. He challenged his father's biases and was happy to live among muggles. He got a Ministry job,  found a wife, and started a family.

But Roy couldn't let go of the past. He always resented his father for wasting the family's money. He believed that purebloods were superior and hated living around muggles, but he didn't have enough money to move. Eventually, he started a family and got a job as a potioneer.



The Present (Rex & Arlene)



A few years ago, Arlene fell ill and quickly became bedridden. Constance already looked after Rosamund whenever her parents were busy (which was almost all the time, except for a few months in the summer that she spent with Roy and Ruth) but caring for her little sister became wholly her responsibility. Esther missed a lot of school because she came home to help the family, but as soon as she graduated and turned seventeen she moved away.

Constance and Rosamund moved out to London, so Rosamund could meet other magical children before she goes off to Hogwarts. Constance got a job and basically became Rosie's mother.



Although Rosamund only spent a small percentage of her time with Roy and Ruth, their beliefs wormed their way into her head. She's become prejudiced and determined to reclaim the Mays' former position in high pureblood society.

The May Family

Rex & Arlene

Rex and Arlene are very loving parents but they have low expectations for their children. They have done their best to teach their children to treat everyone equally and fairly.

Rex Everett May
1919 | Suggested FC: Evan Peters | Gryffindor/Hufflepuff | 41.
OPEN

Brother of Roy. Husband of Arlene. Rex is a workaholic. He is weary, but tries to spend as much time as possible with his family. He is cheerful, although he doesn't have much of a sense of humor. He disagrees with Roy about pureblood superiority, and it causes many arguments at family gatherings.

Arlene Rosa May
1921 | Suggested FC: Cassie Jaye | Hufflepuff | 39. | Bedridden
OPEN

Loving mother of three (Esther, Constance, Rosamund). Arlene is caring, sweet, and patient. She isn't very ambitious, and she has low expectations for her children. She loves traveling, but hasn't been able to take a trip for many years.

Esther Alice May
1941 | FC: Jayden Bartels | Ravenclaw 58' | 18.
TAKEN

Daughter of Arlene. After graduating Hogwarts, Esther didn't know what to do with herself. She left home as soon as she turned seventeen and hasn't visited since. She sends the occasional letter to her family but doesn't say much. She's become sad, lonely, and lost. The ambition once fueled by the low expectations of her parents ebbed away after her hope for the future dissolved and now Esther is left to figure out how to live without it.

Constance Anne May
1943 | FC: Alex French | Squib | 16. | etc.
TAKEN

Daughter of Arlene. Stand-in Mother of Rosamund. Constance, or Annie as she likes to be called, is a rather anxious person. She's quiet but friendly, although she hasn't had much experience when it comes to making friends. She's busy, responsible, and always exhausted.

Rosamund Ruth May
1943 | FC: Alexus Oladi |  8.
TAKEN

Daughter of Arlene. Rosamund Ruth is rather intense for an eight-year-old. She's outgoing, loyal, judgemental, and full of ambition. She's an open book and can't keep a secret to save her life.

The May Family

Roy & Ruth

Roy and Ruth are much more traditional than Rex and Arlene. They are stern parents and have taught their children to be biased against halfbloods and muggleborns.

Roy Orville May

Ruth Alma May
1921 | Suggested FC: Sarah Vickers | Ravenclaw/Slytherin | 35.
OPEN

Mother of Lynne, Lonnie, Leon, Joanna, and Hazel. Wife of Roy. Ruth is studious and brilliant, but bitter because she had children at a young age and couldn't pursue her career. She's reserved, polite, cold, and strict. She won't hesitate to manipulate people to get what she wants.

Lynne Stephanie May
| Suggested FC: Dear Evergreen | Slytherin | 16-18.
OPEN

Lynne is snarky and sarcastic, smart yet insecure. She dreams of success in the ministry and hates being controlled more than anything.


Lonnie Wallace May
| FC: Benji Krol | Ravenclaw | 14-16.
OPEN

Lonnie is quiet and introverted. He doesn't talk much but when he does he is friendly and cheerful. He loves anything scholarly and likes books more than people. He can be a bit antisocial.

Leon Orville May
| Suggested FC: Joey Birlem | Gryffindor/Slytherin | 13-15.
OPEN

Leon is smart, perceptive, and a talented wizard. He's also argumentative and mean-spirited. Loyal to his friends and fiercely cruel to everyone else.

Joanna Caroline May
| Suggested FC: Bostyn Brown| Hufflepuff | 12-14.
OPEN

Joanna is optimistic, energetic, and outgoing. But she can also be nosy, insensitive, and careless. She has a passion for quidditch and hates negativity and whining. Joanna doesn't get along with Leon, Lynne or Ruth because of that.

Hazel Leslie May
| Suggested FC: Abby Bergman| Ravenclaw | 10-13.
OPEN

Hazel is inquisitive, creative, and always questioning. She is determined and driven but she can also be standoffish and calculating at times. She aspires to be a detective or lawyer, and hates liars.
