August looked timidly up the trunk of the ancient tree. People scared him a lot these days, but heights? Psh! Actually, heights scared him a lot but he'd never admit that to Action. He always tried to impress the older boy to no avail, Action always was better than him. At everything.

August carefully pulled himself up the first branch, and then the second. This wasn't so bad? Unlike Action, August knew better than to go shirtless in the blazing sun. His thin, white t-shirt was already stained with dirt and grass stains from a day of adventure with the older boy, while Action continued to look like his impeccable self, August looked much more disheveled as he tried to keep up.

"Can you see the whole camp from up there?" He shouted timidly, hoping no one else was nearby. His fingers clawed at every branch, pulling himself up on each. Every time he nearly slipped off, he'd mutter a few curses in French about his clumsiness before hiking up further. By the time he was at the branch that Action had flopped over on, he was nearly out of breath.

His chest rose and fall, as he lay on the branch all sloth-like.

The ground was a good ten or fifteen feet below, although to Scamp it looked like it was easily several hundred. The old oak was still wet from last night's rain, and August's shirt was stained a dirty-brown, his hands covered with bits of loose bark. He clung to the branch for a moment, closing his eyes only to feel something crawling on his back.

He opened his eyes to find an eight-legged monstrosity of a spider crawling up his back, "AAH!" He screamed in a panic, losing his grip and falling down. The boughs of the tree below broke his fall, but August was still left with scrapes and a twisted ankle as he lay in desperation on the ground, crying out, "Aactioon!" He mustered. The spider made it out alive, of course, skittering away into the high grass.

His head throbbed as it tried to contemplate everything that just happened.

Now we're wearing long sleeves and the heating comes on.

Nervous, nervous, nervous. That's what best describes poor August Weston, the youngest boy in Action Black's Voodoo Crew. He's never been very open with the world, finding it hard to after being put down so often.

August is the son of a Muggle Father and a Pureblood Mother. His Mother was disowned by her family for conceiving a child with a Muggle man, and thus was also deemed a “Blood Traitor” to all elitist, Wizarding families. August grew up rather sheltered and was shipped off to Beauxbatons for his first year of schooling as the war began to erupt throughout France.

As an only child, August was tutored by his mother and knows how to fluently speak French and English. Despite this, he’s never been confident in either language. Often confined by his shyness, he doesn’t talk much except to those he truly trusts. His family, chiefly, and very few friends at Hogwarts.

Beauxbatons for August wasn’t easy, he was just entering a time in his life where he found he wasn’t exactly interested in girls anymore. Toppled on worrying about his father, things went downhill quickly for August.

A lot had changed for poor August by second year. During the War, his father (a Muggle) went to go fight off the SS Invasions of France, only to be brutally captured and slaughtered by Nazi soldiers. His mother had decided to transfer him to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to separate him from the pain that he’s endured in France, and to keep him from seeing the aftermath of the war that’s destroyed France.

August hardly expected to flourish at Hogwarts, too nervous and shy to make many friends outside of Action Black’s “Voodoo Crew” – A gang of Hogwarts students. August has a mounting worry for his friends in the Crew figuring out about his interest in guys, and his variety of crushes on everyone from Quidditch Players to Professors at Hogwarts. One might say he’s desperate, others might say he’s just not gutsy enough to make a move on anybody.

What the future entails for August, who knows? In his mind, hopefully something that doesn’t involve in him being ousted by the members of Action’s crew or being beat up by someone else. August already has enough problems on his hands, and would rather stay as incognito as possible about his love life and his life in general.

Both August and Action are members of the Voodoo Crew, and August definitely sees Action as like the big brother he never had. Someone who he can trust and confide his secrets into! We need to do some brotherly stuff together while at camp, and maybe something secret sharing before they return to Hogwarts!
