PostSubject: Student - James Potter II   Thu Jan 01, 2015 2:05 pm

Basic Information;

Full Name; James Sirius Potter
Date of Birth; October 21
Hogwarts Year: Second
Age on September 1st: 12
Age on next Birthday: 13
Blood Purity; Halfblood
Hometown; King's Boulevard, London
Current Home; King's Boulevard, London

Appearance;

Hair; Jet black and innately messy
Eye Color; Bright brown
Height; He’s pretty small, even for someone his age
Weight; Again, very little – he’s naturally slim
Body Type; He’s small and light, the standard build for a seeker
Dress Style; he normally wears robes, but when he does where muggle clothes he tends to where decent ones yet make them a bit disheveled (such as button up shirts with the top couple of buttons undone)
Other (eg birth mark, tattoo ect); None

Personality;
Personality; It’s almost eerie how similar he is to his namesakes: James Potter I and Sirius Black. Though it doesn’t help that he admires both of them, and seems to think any story about them is actually a suggestion. Which would explain why he’s trying to update the map after repairs on the school and from stories his dad’s told, as well as why he’s already trying to figure out how one becomes an animagus without registering with the government (though he’s had limited success so far). But most of his similarities are an innate coincidence. For example, James has a love of pranking, joking, and teasing that can sometimes verge on bullying, though he doesn’t realize it. He doesn’t really see when he’s crossed the line, and needs people to tell him. He also needs people to hold him back from getting in fights, which is incredibly easy to provoke with him – especially if you insult Albus or Lily. He’s also a very good seeker, like both his father and grandfather, and is determined to be put on the team this year. James loves to be the center of attention, and to have people looking up to him. He loves a good adventure, and feels like he’s been born into the wrong time – he would’ve preferred to have lived during one of the wars, when it seemed as though real things were happening.
Likes; pranks, laughing, cheating the system, hearing stories about his grandfather, teasing people, being admired, being the center of attention, feeling superior, Quidditch, adventures
Dislikes; Serious and/or depressing things, being ignored, people he disagrees with, feeling guilty, talking about feelings (especially his own), being corrected or made a fool of, people who disrespect his family or try to hurt his little siblings
Strengths; He’s athletic, intelligent, and funny. He also has a big heart, even if it doesn’t seem like it. He’s athletic, and particularly good at Quidditch (especially as a seeker). He’s good at reading people, especially when it comes to spotting fear. He never lets fear stop him or worry him, and just uses humor to disregard it.
Weaknesses; He can hold a grudge for a really long time, he has minimal boundaries and tends to need people to restrain him, his jokes/pranks/teasing can verge on bullying and he isn’t constrained by worrying about putting people in danger. He’s incredibly protective of his siblings (he goes by the motto that, as the eldest brother, it’s his right to harass them, but nobody else had better say a word against them), and it doesn’t take much to provoke him into a fight. He doesn’t tend to think before he acts, and is incredibly cocky and has a tendency to act rather superior. He can be a bit of a braggart and is not afraid to flaunt his family’s legacy, as well, though he doesn’t want to be known only for that. He tends to put himself in dangerous situations, ignoring any risk his ideas may present – in fact, he doesn’t generally tend to think before he acts, in general. He likes having people admire him far too much, which makes him easy to manipulate. He hardly ever opens up about himself. He’s a bit spoiled and used to getting what he wants. When he can’t have what he wants, he takes it. He’s not prone to trusting people, though he’s happy to be popular and be friends with people on a less deep level. Of course, he wants a few real friends, like anyone else, but he’s very selective in who he actually trusts or talks to about real things.
Quirks; He makes faces at goofy faces at himself whenever he passes a mirror or other reflective surface, he messes up his hair whenever he’s bored, and he makes jokes when scared or upset
Habits; He taps his foot when he’s trying not to say something (which doesn’t happen often), he brushes the feather of his quill across his chin when he’s trying to think of what to write
Best Class; Charms
Worst Class; Potions

Background;
James is the eldest child, born to Harry and Ginny Potter. From a young age, he had to come to terms with not having his mother around very much, and his father being absent during the day. Though he rarely saw his mother, his father was worse, since he was an auror. James was a rather perceptive kid, and he understood from an early age the danger that accompanied his father’s job, and had to live with the fear that some day he might just not come home. He also had to live with the fear of loosing his little brother, who had complications at birth. While he was really too young to understand this at the time, he later learned that Albus could easily overexert himself and become deathly ill. James coped with all this fear in the best way he knew how: humor. Well, humor and teasing – he teases his brother even more than most, as a cover for how much he worries about him.

Growing up, James got just about everything he wanted, and could do whatever he wanted. He spent a lot of time at his Uncle George’s shop, as he had a fondness for pranks and found all of the goods to be fascinating and useful. He had a tendency to knick things from the shop, and didn’t realize till he got older that George knew full well he was stealing things, and just let him get away with it. Every day, a new Weasley Whizard Wheezes product turned up in the house, inevitably put to good use on one of James’ younger siblings. James loves to tease both Albus and Lily, and considers it his solemn responsibility to get on their nerves. But, when it comes down to it, he’d do literally anything to protect them, and they know it. He also knows that they both love him, and maybe even admire him, just as much.

James also had a good relationship with both his parents, though he’d always wished that they could be around a little more. When he was little, he used to love nothing more than to listen to their stories about Hogwarts, and the war. He especially loved to hear his dad talk about James I and Sirius, and there are very few things they did that James doesn’t wish to replicate or, in most cases, do even better or earlier. When James went to Hogwarts for his first year, he stole the Marauder’s Map from his father’s desk, resolving to add to it in the coming years.

Family;
Mother (Name, age, dead or alive, blood purity); Ginny Potter nee Weasley, 35, alive, pureblood
Father (Name, age, dead or alive, blood purity); Harry Potter, 36, alive, halfblood
Siblings (Name, age, dead or alive, blood purity);
Albus Severus Potter, 11, alive, halfblood
Lily Luna Potter, 9, alive, halfblood
Other family members (Name, age, dead or alive, blood purity); All the Weasleys. Also, Ron Weasley (36, alive, pureblood) and Hermione Granger (36, alive, muggleborn) are his godparents. Edward (Teddy) Lupin (18, alive, halfblood) is his father’s godson and an honorary member of the family.

Other;
Wand; dragon heartstring, oak wood, 10 inch, sturdy
Patronus; he started learning this rather early, given that his dad made it sound rather important. But he can’t yet form a full patronus. It will be a stag, like his father before him, and his grandfather before that.
Animagus Form (only fifth years and above); He’s still working out how to become one without registering.
Animal; a barn owl named Prongs-Padfoot (just Prongs for short)

House your character feels they should be in:

James sauntered up to the front of the Great Hall, brimming with confidence. There was no way he wouldn't be in Gryffindor. He'd already explained it to the kids he'd been sitting with on the way here. First of all, it simply didn't seem feasible that he wouldn't be in Gryffindor - it ran in the family. All of the Potters and all of the Weasleys had been in Gryffindor... well, save a few cousins. But, for the most part, it was essentially a family trait. Besides which, James considered himself to be very brave. He never let fear get in his way. Well, that's what he thought. What he'd told the others was that he never got afraid, which was what he'd have people believe. James hadn't even considered any of the other houses, he was so confident he would be in Gryffindor. To him, there was no other possibility.

Chosen house is:

GRYFFINDOR
