One of the three Care of Magical Creatures professors, and Head of Slytherin House.
One of Hogwarts' two Potions professors.
The extremely grumpy Herbology professor. Also a werewolf.
- Not in Front of the Parrot: Hamish owns a macaw called Rena, who can and will repeat what you say.
Another Care of Magical Creatures professor, and head of year for the 2023-24 first-year cohort.
- Awesome Aussie: Professor Calloway is Australian, built like a battlecruiser, and takes no nonsense from beasts or students.
- Berserk Button: Do not stupidly endanger your life or the lives of your fellow students when she's watching. Ever.
- Also not a good idea to insinuate she wanted Valeria Chovnik to die. Ask James Hale how that turned out for him.
- Big Fun: Boisterous, exuberant and, yes, large.
- Friend to All Living Things: Her beast empathy power means creatures tend to like her and do what she asks.
- I Let Gwen Stacy Die: Blames herself for Valeria's death, as she could have averted it at multiple points but didn't.
- My Greatest Failure: The whole dragon fiasco.
- The Nicknamer: Calls basically all the students "possum".
- Silent Scapegoat: Wracked with guilt over Valeria's death, she publicly took responsibility for failing to prevent it and the preceding dragon attack.
- Stout Strength: Her Vitality score (measuring her strength and fortitude) is literally as high as they go.
- Funetik Aksent: Professor Casey's Irish accent is quite noticeable in text.
- Sadist Teacher: The most disliked teacher in Hogwarts, and for good reason.
Ira and Mia Glamis
The twin Charms instructors and joint heads of Ravenclaw House.
- Creepy Twins: Hoo boy.
- Sadist Teacher: Not quite on the same level as Professor Fawley, but still, not the sort you'd go to with a problem.
- Single-Minded Twins
Astronomy professor and head of Hufflepuff House.
- Eyepatch of Power: Professor Grant received one of these after losing his eye in an incident in Diagon Alley. Since he was absent from Hogwarts for a term in the meantime, this is also an Eyepatch After Time Skip.
Potions professor and head of Gryffindor House.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A skilled potioneer, Professor Ichor just happens to also go around everywhere in pyjamas. Including a quite fetching unicorn onesie.
Headmaster of Hogwarts, Professor Newman also teaches Path to Success.
Care of Magical Creatures professor and Deputy Headmaster of Hogwarts.
Divination professor and head of year for the 2022-23 cohort.
- Blind Seer: Played straight in that Professor Wen will soon go blind, and subverted in that he is not actually a Seer.
- Scary Shiny Glasses
- Berserk Button: Athalia, when you accuse her of being racist.
A bubbly, cheerful Mexican-Welsh girl that decided on going to Hogwarts to follow her older brother. Jem's two loves are potions and flying, and she aspires to become a potioneer as good as her father. However, in her second year at Hogwarts she was the victim of an accident that might just put all her aspirations on hold...
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Jem is very intelligent, and often comes up with creative solutions to problems (like spongifying the speartips of attacking suits of armor) but ever since her best friend Julian Rhodes left Hogwarts she barely ever hands homework in or does academic work
- Cuddle Bug: Prior to her being turned into a werewolf, Jem loved physical contact, always hugging and touching her friends. Now, however, she's dealing with a lot of emotional backlash at her illness, and doesn't feel worthy of contact with other people.
- Damsel out of Distress: Jem went into the Forbidden Forest during full moon expecting to find some dittany plants. She was almost immediately attacked by a werewolf, but promptly casted a very effective Incendio, and was about to outrun the werewolf out of the forest, when a mysterious tree golem killed it.
- Monster Roommate: To every other Ravenclaw (although at least there are no other girls in her year to share her dorm) .
- Our Werewolves Are Different: Jem caught lycanthropy not by being bitten by a transformed werewolf, but by getting a transformed werewolf's saliva inside an open wound. As there was no bite, she did not know she was infected and her first transformation came as quite a surprise.
- Toxic Friend Influence: Despite being a prefect, Jem has little to no respect for rules she doesn't deem necessary or logical, and will not only knowingly break them but encourage her peers to do so.
- Feathered Fiend: His deceptively-named owl, Snowball.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: Conan was believed to have these, although it was never verified. However, his tendency to stand off to the sidelines and watch people like a creep didn't help deter this trope's applicability.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Conan was sometimes known as "Toast Lord", and ate toast in almost every appearance he made. He even owned a toast notebook, as if his obsession with the item wasn't already overwhelming.
- Acquainted with Emergency Services: Alex was quite friendly with the school's medic, and often joked about needing an infirmary loyalty card.
Scion of the wealthy and powerful Prince family, Medraut lacks most of the haughtiness one might expect of a pureblood heir. Formerly of Ravenclaw House, he has since been relocated to Durmstrang at the behest of his grandfather, who found himself increasingly unimpressed with the state of Wizarding Britain and especially Hogwarts.
- Blue Blood: The Princes are one of the wealthiest pureblood families in the setting, although their reticence during the Wizarding Wars and occasional scandals have sullied their name a little. Curiously, Medraut seems relatively indifferent towards typical pureblood doctrine, although not to the point where he might be considered a blood-traitor.
- The Chessmaster Wannabe: Whilst he's undeniably quick-witted and impressively well-prepared for a student of his age, Medraut's youth and impatience hold him back from the strategic mastery to which he aspires. Whilst he's usually able to improvise at least a partial solution, he seldom manages to do so without incurring some manner of loss.
- Feathered Fiend: Medraut's owl, Oneries, was not particularly nice.
- Lonely Rich Kid: Although it doesn't seem to have affected him too adversely, Medraut had almost no close friends before coming to Hogwarts and was far more accustomed to the presence of servants, house-elves and much older family members than he was to children his age.
- Odd Friendship: Despite his foibles, Medraut's general affability and lack of strong convictions has caused him to befriend a surprisingly diverse array of fellow students, even after leaving Hogwarts.
- Pride: Whilst he's self-aware enough to rein in his ego for the most part, Medraut's high opinion of himself can occasionally manifest as dangerous overconfidence, or cause him to overestimate how much others care about his occasional slip-ups and setbacks.
- Safety in Indifference: When Medraut finds himself imperiled or in an emotionally taxing situation, he has a tendency to detach himself as much as possible. Whilst this allows him to keep his head in a crisis, it's doubtlessly not the healthiest way for him to deal with his problems.
- Tiny Schoolboy: Medraut is the youngest student in his year, at Hogwarts and Durmstrang both, and still a few inches short of five feet. Whilst he would sorely like to be taller, he's accepted his height (or lack thereof) enough that it's more a mild irritant to him than a Berserk Button.
- Voice with an Internet Connection: A few weeks into second year, Medraut sent enchanted mirrors to some of his friends at Hogwarts, where he can watch and interact with what's happening in real time. He mostly uses this power to make snide comments though, and frequently uses it during class, which prompts the question of how in hell hasn't this kid been expelled from Durmstrang
A Slytherin student during her stay at Hogwarts. Ivy has graduated Hogwarts and currently works in the Ministry of Magic.
- Animorphism: Ivy is an Animagus.
- Badass Bookworm: Ivy has never been spotted without a book somewhere in her relative vicinity. Despite this, she has always been quite good at terrifying students and is really quite a formidable opponent when she gets her nose out of the library.
- Berserk Button: A few of these. If Ivy's around and anyone loses points for Slytherin, acts in an idiotic way, tries to hug her, or damages books, it's best to run as fast as you can away from the scene.
- CatchPhrase: Ivy more or less cornered the market on the word "Idiot."
- Doing Research: Ivy is very much the epitome of this trope.
- Emotionless Girl: Ivy shows significantly less emotion than most people.
- Messy Hair: Ivy never bothers with taking care of her hair.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: Ivy has glasses that glint threateningly in any sort of light.
- CatchPhrase: "For Science!" Most often used when Laken did bizarre things, such as stealing a Professor's chair for an experiment.
- Nice Guy
- Noodle Implements: Laken's tools for his experiments were exactly this. One notable set was Professor Seward's chair, a roll of cheese, a rope, and some silver.
- Opaque Nerd Glasses: Laken had a pair of these, with one lens colored green and the other violet. Whether or not they offered protection from the glare of a Basilisk, we'll never know.
- Ambition Is Evil: Jesse was a Slytherin. Jesse was also... not the nicest person.
- Commuting on a Bus: Every now and then, Jesse still shows up, and what fun it is when he does.
- Fed to the Beast: Jesse Wellens set up five of his fellow students to be attacked by the ghost-entity Cyrus. Two of whom were his dormmates. And he completely got away with it. Christ.
- Animorphism: Mav is an Animagus.
The result of a one night stand that Hachijo Hisako had with a (probably) British man when she was studying in college. To save his own political career, her grandfather Hachijo Josuke sent both her and Hisako away to live with an 'old friend' of his; the 2nd Lieutanant of the Majima Yakuza family, who was once Josuke's former blood brother. Due to Jouko's British father, she received a Hogwarts letter despite living in Tokyo at the time. When she and Hisako found out the Majima clan had hidden Jouko's Mahoutokoro acceptance letters four years prior, they both left for England so that Jouko could start studying there.
- Japanese Spirit
- Lady of War: Of sorts. She is a practiced Aikidoka, but as of this moment she isn't skilled enough to actually use it in a real confrontation.
- Mafia Princess: Adopted by the 2nd Lieutenant of a Yakuza clan in Tokyo
- Shares a surname with the maiden name of Kazumi Mishima.
- Jouko's name has two 'Jo' syllables next to each other, which is how Kujo Jotaro got the nickname Jojo in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
- Jouko was under the care of a Lieutenant of the Majima family, which shares a name with a character and family from the Yakuza games.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist
- Kaleidoscope Hair: Christine is a Metamorphmagus and can change her hair colour, amongst other parts of her body. Typically, it is purple. Since her mood can affect her abilities, particularly when she was younger and had less control, Expressive Hair also applies.
- Nice Guy: Or girl in this case, but still. Not too many people out there more cheerful and centred than Christine.
Orwell Libertus Galilei
- Iron Woobie: Orwell has experienced a rather extreme trauma in his early childhood, having his Parental Substitute killed in front of him in cold blood when attempting to protect Orwell. There's also his Ship Sinking with a certain Femme Fatale half-vampire. He ain't complaining though, and you will never see him doing that.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: He was never someone looking for power, as he was just trying to be like everyone else. Go to Hogwarts, graduate and maybe get a desk job in the Ministry of Magic. But no, it was never his fate to be normal.
- Bad Powers, Good People: Super strength, an invisible sword that can cut anything, Adaptive Armor , ability to manipulate light. All these are excessively harmful in the eyes of Orwell, but he certainly is not afraid to use them for good. After all, with Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility .
- Dark Is Not Evil: His favorite color scheme for clothing.
- Strong and Skilled: Orwell is both a proficient fighter (melee or magical) and intelligent, considering that he somehow made it into Auror Office, notorious for their high standards for applicants.
- Good Is Not Soft: Orwell is a genuinely friendly person. He is courteous to everyone, always treats people with respect, will totally listen and help you out however he could, etc...but if you messed up by hurting those he cares the most or did whatever that causes his great patience...well, let's just say his Berserk Button will be triggered and he might as well Turn the Other Fist and may consider Cruel Mercy as your final fate.
- Gentleman Snarker
- The Mentor: Orwell has a tendency to take weaker people in under his wings to teach them stuffs. It can be simple magic or just philosophy. Although, usually he always stresses that In the End, You Are on Your Own .
- Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: Orwell is generally leaning towards Cynicism, but after he inadvertently hurt one of his closest confidants, he decides to just keep it in and keeps an outwardly idealistic views. Which is why he holds Grey and Grey Morality .
- The Big Guy: It's in his genes. He can't help it if the habit to pick up weights and training ass-kicking stuffs is just his thing. Oh, and he's like, going to be 6'7", 300 pounds of muscle in the future.
- Badass Family: The whole goddamn Galilei Family is built to destroy: His father is a former auror who has a penchant of destroying things with his bare hands, his mother is also a Thrill Seeker former auror, and his sister is on the way of becoming proper Femme Fatale soon. They even got a goddamn specialized training chamber where Training from Hell is happening daily to keep their claws sharp and staying badass.
- Blood Knight: Secretly harboring this trait, although he's trying his best to suppress it, and it's been working well so far..well, other than that specific occasion...
Rogziel Martyn O'Maloney
A cheerful music lad who loves birds. His father, Mr. O'Maloney was sent to Azkaban for 10 years due to being an accessory of Falacia Sunhymn's murder of 4 students and 3 bystanders. However, his involvement with the crime only extends to Falacia's use and modification of his music box, the murder weapon, which he did not personally provide or modify for her. Thus, he is innocent. Due to the absense of his wizard father, Rogziel Martyn O'Maloney and his twin brother, Ceallach Tobias O'Maloney, was raised mostly without magic by their muggle mother. Rogziel Martyn O'Maloney goes by Martyn and owns a small, pocket-sized music box and a small, demonic pet parakeet, the two physical staples of his character.
- Bizarre Taste in Food: Martyn usually ate vegetables covered in mayonnaise. When eating with Meryl Webb and Conan Lebrowsky, he decided to mix things up a bit and instead covered his greens with ketchup, to the blatant disgust of Meryl.
- Cute and Psycho: Lemoney, Martyn's small and vicious pet parakeet, fit this trope to a tee. Also, Feathered Fiend.
- Genius Ditz: Even though he was quite the air-head, Martyn had memorized nearly every song and songwriter he had encountered.
- Voice with an Internet Connection: Martyn's twin brother, Bias, loved the internet and would tell Martyn how to do many dubious techniques that he found on the web. However, he did this through owl post rather than an earpiece.
- Bizarre Taste in Food: Ellis loved preserved Gillyweed infusion in tea, although he choked on the concoction multiple times and had to go to the infirmary for it.
- My Name Is Inigo Montoya: Ellis had a habit of introducing himself before, after, and during his duels, especially when it had to do with someone stealing his Gillyweed.
- Inhumanly Beautiful Race: Donnie is half-Veela.
Noah Morris Brown is a Ravenclaw prefect known for their extreme intelligence and almost as extreme misanthropy.
- Bizarre Taste in Food: Noah's favorite food is matzoh with butter, salt, and horseradish.
- Beneath the Mask: Underneath Noah's prickly, asocial exterior is... a prickly, asocial interior. But underneath that, they're a shy and isolated but deeply caring and empathetic person. Not that that ever sees the light of day.
- Constantly Curious: At one point, Noah asked the same Transfiguration teacher the same questions multiple times because they wanted to double-check.
- Cape Swish: Noah does these intentionally for dramatic effect. It's not very effective.
- Doing Research: Noah is very well-read, as you'd expect.
- Destructive Romance: Noah's relationship with Ivan may have been adorable at times, but it was still incredibly toxic, codependent, and unhealthy for both of them, to the point that years after Ivan left the school, Noah's boggart is Ivan. And Noah was arguably the better-off of the pair.
- For Happiness: The ethical system Noah bases most of their long-term plans around.
- Gender-Neutral Writing: Noah talks and to an extent thinks like this.
- Murder Is the Best Solution: Noah has a tendency to resort to violent means (though not quite lethal) as a first resort, or after a halfhearted try at nonviolent resolution.
- Necessary Evil: Noah believes that violent retribution is the best way to ensure others won't hurt you twice, and acts accordingly.
- Paper Master: Noah has several animated, self-repairing paper hummingbirds. Which may not seem very threatening until they start papercutting your ear canal. They've also upgraded them to be capable of self-replication, which is probably even more terrifying.
- Sensory Overload: Noah experiences this a lot, so they wear sunglasses and earmuffs to compensate.
- The Spock: They want to be this.
- The Stoic: This, most of the time.
- Sufficiently Analyzed Magic: This is essentially Noah's primary goal for their school experience.
- Surveillance Drone: Noah's hummingbirds are these for them. Wherever you are in the school, there are good odds that one or two of these are watching you.
- Tranquil Fury: Whenever they get in a fight, Noah tries to remain calm, rational, and composed, with a decent success rate.
- Utopia Justifies the Means: Noah believes this wholeheartedly.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Noah's primary goal is to make the world a better place for everyone, but their chosen method of doing this requires overthrowing both the wizarding and Muggle governments.
Valeria Chovnik is a half-breed sorted into the Gryffindor house. She was born in Ukraine and split her time between the wider Wizarding World of London and her Carpathian Mountain-located kicks. She is an only child, but lives with her sixteen first-cousins, most of whom are bratty half-Veela.
- Can't Live Without You: During her first year, she put a galleon into Juno Yoshinaga-Bloodstone's cursed purse. While it failed to make her as deranged as Juno, who turned into a mess on the floor calling everyone denying her the purse racists, it definitely made her paranoid and off-kilter from her normal self. She recovered after a while!
- Cool Pet: Valeria is the proud owner of Belozmiy, a Ukrainian Ironbelly. He frequently tried to kill her and anyone he encountered, but she was immensely endeared to him regardless.
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Val purposefully turned up her Ukrainian accent to try and woo Cecilia Evans during the Halloween Ball.
- Friends Are Chosen, Family Aren't: It took Valeria a long time to realize that, despite the fact Zoya Chovnik, her mother, utilizes her Veela magic disagreeably, they have a lot in common.
- Inhumanly Beautiful Race: Valeria is half-Veela, and thus inherited her mother's supernatural beauty.
- Killed Offscreen: After rescuing more than a dozen first years from Belozmiy, Valeria was trapped in the Forbidden Forest by the teachers' age line, seriously injured and gradually bleeding out, with only a murderous dragon for company. What a horrible way to go.
- Like Brother and Sister: Valeria's relationship with Kairav Deane-Ward. After he permanently moved to France and Cora Ray, who was a vague enemy turned partner-in-crime, disappeared, she had a hard time making new friends.
- Never Found the Body: Valeria was carried off by Belozmiy after her death, which led to...
- Not Quite Dead: She survived her experience in the Forbidden Forest. Just.
- Symbiotic Possession: She politely accepted the request of an entity living in the dungeons to room inside her head for a bit. When it left, it gave her a killer migraine, though perhaps not as killer as the slumbering homunculus which exists down there too.
- The Trickster: She proudly received a semester-long detention with her partner-in-crime, Cora Ray, for pranking the opening feast. They released hundreds of stinky, enchanted airplanes filled with powdered paint. She's also released giant chocolate frogs in the halls and made first years race them, and turned all of the stairs into slides.
- In a related vein, she certainly had Sticky Fingers, having stolen a House Cup from the trophy room and a bell. Said bell was engorged on Professor Natsworthy's desk, leaving it destroyed.
- Cool Pet: Evan has a pet Runespoor.
James Vincent Hale is a half-blood wizard sorted into the house of Gryffindor and currently a Prefect. He was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. He currently has a father and three younger siblings, as well as an expansive non-immediate family. This includes the Quigley and Sullivan houses.
- Angsty Surviving Twin: James underwent a dark character arc after losing his twin brother, Terrence, although he has gotten past this. Mostly.
- Attack! Attack! Attack!: James is a total idiot and will actually jump into fights that he can't possibly win. See: Fighting a superpowered pirate with minimal blade expertise.
- Cannot Spit It Out: Enough said. James literally refuses to spill to anyone. That doesn't mean that he won't cry, however.
- Can't Hold His Liquor: James got drunk off of eggnog. One glass of it. Extreme lightweight hours if one is being perfectly honest.
- Cool Sword: James has a goblin silver sword, it's plain but it's certainly a sight to be seen given that he wears it around everywhere. The idiot.
- Deadpan Snarker: He fancies himself to be one of these, and this means that he does make snide remarks. Shame that they're usually totally lame.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: James is a masculine man. He played on his high school football team, for frickity heck's sake.
- Dumbass Teenage Son: Enough said.
- Flaming Sword: James has a flaming sword. How cool is that!
- Innocent Bigot: It's not sexism if it's true, right?
- Knight Templar: James is going to go off killing ghosts, but that doesn't mean that he isn't doing the right thing... right?
- Sword Beam: James can cast magic through his sword, or dagger most often. Commence spell yeeting.
- Wardrobe Flaw of Characterization: James tries to look cool. A little too hard. Just take pity on him and pretend that he is, yeah?
Mazarine Hatter, formerly Denshaw, and often known as Maz, is a Muggle-born Hufflepuff with an... unusual temperament. To give context, she is currently best known for living in a pirate ship on the Black Lake and owning two bibliovorous alligators.
- Berserk Button: You are liable for cruel and unusual punishment should you insult or threaten Maz's alligators. Just ask Alva Ainsley.
- Bizarre Taste in Food: Not Maz, exactly, but the fact that her alligators eat books definitely qualifies. And, more recently, wands. Including Maz's.
- Cool Pet: Dude. Gators.
- Cool Ship: Well, she lives on a pirate ship...
- Pirate Girl: Nuff said.
- What the Hell Is That Accent?: No one exactly knows where Maz's accent is from nor how she got it, but everyone always misunderstands when she talks about her "shi'". See also Funetik Aksent.
- Animorphism: Valeran is an Animagus.
- Alpha Bitch: At least from the eyes of Lily Bartlett, since Sunny had a former habit of calling her a 'slug' and insulting her very existence.
- Cute and Psycho: Sunny was a little eleven-year old girl who showered all her friends with affection... and enjoyed killing small mammals in her free time.
- All of the Other Reindeer: Cora once gave a large number of students poisoned muffins, and was generally hated by most of the student body.
- Ambition Is Evil: Suffice it to say, Cora played right into the Slytherins-are-evil archetype.
- For the Evulz: Just about everything Cora did fits this.
- Animorphism: Pam is an Animagus and can transform into a cheetah.
- Kaleidoscope Hair: Cee is a Metamorphmagus and can change her hair colour, amongst other parts of her body.
- Kaleidoscope Hair: Arabella is a Metamorphmagus and can change her hair colour, amongst other parts of her body.
- Funetik Aksent: Felix is Irish, and let's just say you can tell.
Formerly Phoebe Von Dalebor. One of the resident Hufflepuff werewolves who has a nasty temper.
- Dark-Skinned Redhead: Phoebe has the unusual combination of red hair and tanned skin, and fits the trope well, right down to Playing with Fire. Also, Significant Green-Eyed Redhead.
- Happily Adopted: Phoebe was adopted by the Casey family in her second year, after a disastrous few years with her biological father.
Resident jokester and circus kid who got placed into Slytherin.
- Circus Brat: By definition.
- Commuting on a Bus: He appears to have fallen off the face of the earth. Again. But does appear infrequently...
- Fat Cat: Her cat, Mungbean, is... on the large side.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Sheng is rarely sighted without her Dr Pepper.
- Fat Cat: Seb's cat, Ollie.
- Inhumanly Beautiful Race: Augustin is half-Veela, and thus incredibly good-looking.
- Berserk Button: If Franco even suspects that a girl is in danger or distress, watch out. And if you've actually hurt one, you might as well say your prayers. I'm looking at you, Klaus Kruger.
- A Birthday, Not a Break: Was dumped by Riley on her thirteenth birthday. Ouch.
- Funetik Aksent: Her sharp Scottish accent is very often written out in full.
- School Newspaper News Hound: Lisa has her own amateur paper, the Hogwarts Press, which has exposed a few very notable secrets.
- Happily Adopted: In his second year, Wren was adopted by the Divination teacher, Professor Quigley.
- Funetik Aksent: He's Scottish, so it can seem like he's talking a different language at times. Especially when conversing with Lisa Edgley.
- The Napoleon: And how.
- Training from Hell: Riley was 'trained' by his grandfather. How? You don't want to know.
- The Cutie: Innocent and lovable, Isabelle epitomises this trope. However, let's just say there's a reason her story arc is titled "Wilted Sunflowers"...
- Sunny Sunflower Disposition: Isabelle is sweet, cheery and kind, and has a pronounced sunflower motif.
- Ambition Is Evil: A good example of why the house of Slytherin has a poor reputation, Don is most famous for poisoning people. Multiple times.
A Ravenclaw girl. Hailing from (and heiress of) muggle nobility, Adalia has hard a bit of a hard time fitting in Hogwarts as everything is so different to what she is accustomed to. Her difficult personality has also not gained her brownie points with anyone, other than the truly naive. Her twin sister is Artemis Audrey.
- Berserk Button: Adalia has a few.
- Do not mention her twin sister, Artemis Audrey, to her unless it is important. Do not imply she is worse than her sister, and do not imply she is better than her sister either. Both of those will get you a very angry Adalia, as the Ravenclaw girls in her dorm found out.
- Do not get her family into trouble or speak ill of them in her presence. Adalia has suffered quite a bit due to them, but she feels responsible to uphold their last name even through it all. As much as, on some level, Adalia knows her family is not perfect and has done bad things, she refuses to accept it.
- Do not imply she is weak or powerless. Responses to this have varied between Adalia cruelly mocking the other person to just her straight up laughing.
- Do not remind her that she is human and has feelings. Adalia will not be amused.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: While not exactly royalty, Adalia is a Duchess-to-be in one of the few non-royal dukedoms left in the UK. She says, however, that she is related to royalty although not directly enough to gain the style of Her Royal Highness (her cousin, however, is a Princess, as she is married to a Thailand Prince).
- Evil Brunette Twin: Downplayed. Her twin sister, Artemis, is a golden haired and good person. Adalia, a dark haired girl, is... not, although she is not evil.
- Fatal Flaw: Pride. Oh boy, pride. There are not many people as prideful as she is.
- Curiosity is another one, although to a lesser extent.
- Old Money: The Audreys can be traced back centuries and have (mostly) always been people with a lot of money.
- Socialite: While not really much in Hogwarts, it is made clear this is Adalia in the muggle world.
- Social Services Does Not Exist: Ironically, in her family, this is both played straight and subverted. It is played straight with Adalia, who is trained to be perfect under particularly medieval methods, but subverted with Emrys, who got her parents arrested for the abuse they inflicted upon them as they told the police everything from their point of view. Adalia's father and mother got arrested for child slavery and abuse for their crimes against Emrys, but never exactly for the crimes against their daughter. This is played straight again with Adalia's older half-siblings, who have custody of her now, as they are... not particularly nice.
- Shout-Out: Her middle name, Rosalina, is due to the character in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2, Adalia's roleplayer's favorite princess in the Mario series.
- Training from Hell: Adalia did not have an easy upbringing. In order to make her into the perfect lady, her parents made her go through various "training exercises". One of them included walking over hot coal in order to test her composure when in pain.
A Slytherin girl, twin sister to Adalia Audrey. Unlike her sister, she is kind, polite, and has mostly fitted in the magical community quite nicely, even being helped by a teacher in finding a creative way to move around on her wheelchair through Hogwarts. She is a heiress like her sister but will not inherit another title.
- All-Loving Hero: Artemis loves and forgives pretty much everyone to a disturbing degree, more than willing to give a chance even to people who have done bad in the past like Klaus Kruger.Artemis: [Furious] "I'm tired, Adalia! I'm tired of you always thinking about yourself only! You are just a selfish girl and I hate you. I hate you and I wish you had never been my sister!"
- However it is important to note that Artemis was still feeling the effects of Ague, a magical illness that left her feverish and nauseous. Artemis, since then, has show great remorse for her words and wishes to apologize.
- Beauty Equals Goodness: Artemis is fairly attractive and a very nice person.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: While not royal per se, Artemis is the daughter of one of the few remaining non-royal dukedoms of the United Kingdom. The Audreys claim connections to various royalties, however. Artemis has never minded.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Artemis has blonde hair (currently with seagreen tips, thanks to the help of Quinn Gallagher) and is one of the most selfless and noblest girls you can find.
- Fatal Flaw: Power and her cripplingly low self-esteem.
- Homeschooled Kids: Unlike her sister, Adalia, who went to the best school money could afford, Artemis was homeschooled after age 6, when an accident with a bike left her paralyzed from the waist down.
- Noble Profession: She wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
- Spoiled Sweet: Artemis might come from a very rich family and might have a title to boot, but don't let that fool you into thinking she is an entitled person. She is kind, helpful, and optimistic (although she has a terrible lack of self-esteem).
- The Unfavorite: Zigzagged and played for drama. Artemis believes her parents prefer (she would hesitate in using the word "love") Adalia more due to the fact that she was the one who was lavished with attention (both positive and negative) while Artemis was mostly neglected and ignored (she can recount one particular year where she only saw her parents three times and all of those times were for interviews). Artemis recalls being straight up told that she was the spare of the family and only there in case something happened to her sister, Adalia (and idea she loathes and has nightmares about).
- However, seeing how her parents have treated Adalia, this may have been for the best.
- Wheelchair Antics: Artemis loves to run around on her wheelchair and you can often see her doing things that nobody knows how possible they really should be.
A Muggle-born Hufflepuff with an average upbringing in suburban London. Ricky is quiet, bookish and on the shy side, but generally well-adjusted.
- Adorkable: Despite being shy, nerdy, weedy, a little clumsy with words and somewhat clumsy in person too, or perhaps because of all these things, Ricky is extremely well liked by most people.
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Downplayed because they have not yet appeared on the model. Ricky's mum and dad are overly proud, and all too willing to wax lyrical about their son: the good and the bad.
- Big Brother Instinct: Because he has a sister two years younger than him, Ricky is well used to being kindly and protective towards girls, especially those younger than him. So it's no surprise that he expresses this with his classmates at Hogwarts, many times.
- Bookworm: Yeah, this is Ricky.
- Character Tics: Ricky bites or chews his lip when thinking and brushes his hair out of his eyes when uncomfortable or unsure how to respond.
- Cuddle Bug: Even though he gives people their personal space, Ricky has grown up thinking physical affection is very normal. So, if you're friends with him, expect a lot of hugs.
- Doing Research: Being a bookworm and having a work ethic worthy of Hufflepuff, this is normally Ricky's response to a crisis.
- Friendless Background: Downplayed. Ricky did not have many friends in Muggle school but quickly made up for this at Hogwarts.
- Messy Hair: Uncontrollably so.
- Nerd Glasses: Ricky is an unashamed nerd, so it should come as no surprise that he is very nearsighted and wears impossibly thick glasses, without which he is virtually blind. Similarly, The Short Guy with Glasses and Smart People Wear Glasses.
- Nice Guy: Ricky basically epitomises this.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Him and his best friend, Shane Mason.
- Situational Sociability: Ricky is generally happy talking with one or two people, but the more company he has, the quieter he gets, and he can utterly break down in large crowds.
- Upbringing Makes the Hero: One of the very few Model Hogwarts characters to come from a happy, loving family with no notable dramas. This makes him calm, empathetic and often the one others turn to with their problems.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Generally assumes the best of everyone, which certainly wins him friends, but it can make him blind to others' faults and oblivious to anyone manipulating him. See: Adalia Audrey.
- Ambition Is Evil: Klaus is in Slytherin, the house of the ambitious, and if not quite evil yet, he is certainly trending in that direction.
- Humiliation Conga: Repeatedly hexed. Beaten up (by girls no less). Had packages of maggots sent to him and rotting meat hidden in his bed. Pushed out a window, locked in the dorms, locked out of the common room...
- Although, given one could make a similar list of things Klaus has done to others, one could argue all of these actions are justified.
- Sleepyhead: His tendency to randomly fall asleep has had hilarious results many times.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Klaus started as a fairly mild-mannered character, but then he became a jerk who terrorised Muggleborns and suggested werewolves should be put down. Bit of a personality change.
Jacques and Jacqueline LeCartier
- Evil Brunette Twin: On the one hand you have Jacques, a light-haired ray of sunshine. Then, on the other, you have black-haired Jacqueline, who frequently enjoys hexing people and torturing ants.
A fun-loving, Quidditch-loving Ravenclaw with a bold streak. Her outward cheerfulness hides a somewhat dysfunctional upbringing and complicated personality.
- Berserk Button: Shane does not get angry often, but if you so much as mention her hated younger cousin, Zack... watch out.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Shane is a Ravenclaw. She also downright refuses to study. And still manages to pass anyway.
- Passionate Sports Girl: The niece of a Quidditch star, Shane lives and breathes the sport, and more than holds her own with the boys: she made the Ravenclaw team in just her second year.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Her and her best friend, Ricky Brown.
- Tomboy: Brilliantly subverted. Shane was pressurised to take up male interests as a child since her mother Wanted A Son Instead (even her name is a hint), and genuinely enjoys activities like Quidditch. However, since arriving at Hogwarts, she has started to explore her feminine side as well.
- Circus Brat: Raised in a circus, which is partly responsible for her... odd temperament.
- Sticky Fingers: Savannah is the school's resident kleptomaniac, and is best known for stealing 60 Galleons from the school bulletin board in broad daylight.
- Butt-Monkey: She's been blinded by stray spells, attacked by chocolate frogs, stink-pelleted, pimple-jinxed...
- Huge Schoolgirl: Kim is tall as a thirteen-year-old (even taller than some thirteen-year-olds), and isn't happy about it.
- The Klutz: Kind of in the "awkward baby giraffe" stage of development.
- Shrinking Violet: Painfully shy.
An eccentric older Hufflepuff beloved by most of the staff and student body, Brian Badgerworth's passionate enthusiasm for practically every experience life had to offer gained him no end of notoriety. Acclaimed as the most skilled student duellist and perhaps the first in Hogwarts history to be awarded the title of Head Boy in only his sixth year at the school, Brian seemed destined for greatness until he was brutally murdered in mysterious circumstances in the halls of Hogwarts.
- All-Loving Hero: Brian was this to a downright disturbing and insane degree, although that didn't (and doesn't) stop the entire server from loving him IC and OOC. Some of his exploits include:
- Teaching the owls in the Owlery how to sing, so that he can host an Owl Choir to calm everybody down from their constant fighting.
- Outfitting the infirmary with stuffed animals and various toys, so that the injured and sick would feel welcome.
- Picking an abused and abandoned kitten off the streets and raising it to trust humans again.
- Putting signs around the Forbidden Forest's edge in order to deter anyone from traversing the dangerous woods and getting hurt.
- Making pots shining with his radiance for the house elves in the kitchen to use.
- Helping Meryl Webb and Conan Lebrowsky mend their friendship.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Simultaneously one of the most unpredictable students in the school and a deadly duellist with surprisingly good conflict mediation skills.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Brian was paralysed, dismembered and heavily scarred before he was finally finished off... by having a serpent summoned in his guts and sent to wreak havoc through his insides.
- Genius Bruiser: Despite his eccentricity, Brian's duelling skills were enough to set him above his fellow students, allowing him to put up a fight against the enigmatic 'Someone' longer than even Professor Mahoney.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Brian was murdered for trying to buy two younger students enough time to flee the mysterious intruder.
A enigmatic wanderer through the halls of Hogwarts who manipulated a first-year into taking a mysterious potion before slaughtering Brian Badgerworth, the Head Boy, in relatively short order.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: Brian did not enjoy a quick death, or a painless one.
- Hero Killer: Just ask Brian. Oh, wait. You can't.
- Knight of Cerebus: As dangerous as Cyrus was, he never killed a student, whilst the new antagonist proved capable of taking on the best student duellist in the school and a teacher in quick succession before retreating without a trace.
- Underestimating Badassery: On both sides of this. Whilst 'Someone' misjudged Brian and found themselves initially on the losing side of the battle against him, they were nonetheless able to defeat him and rapidly dispatch Professor Mahoney when she rushed in to defend her student.
- Unfinished Business: To cut a long story short, 'Someone' was eventually revealed to be Elizabeth Bathory, who, at the conclusion of her arc, left Hogwarts for bigger and badder things to do in the wizarding world.
- Walking Spoiler: Whilst Cyrus was already a rather enigmatic figure before more about him was learned, Bathory lacked any internal monologue that might betray her identity.
Responsible for teaching History of Magic, John Jackson is the third teacher to take up the role in two years. Whilst he's capable at his role, the antics of the students cause him him to nurse a drink in his office more often than might be strictly appropriate...
- Emergency Services: Jackson is constantly summoned in order to fight various fires around Hogwarts. Whether he is qualified for this or not is unknown.
- I Needa Freaking Drink: Jackson apparently appreciates a good drink now and then.
- Patriotic Fervor: A graduate of Ilvermorny, Jackson remains a staunch American patriot. Moreover, Jackson generally simply has a loyal sense to him: loyal and proud of any house, state, or nation he is a part of.
Cheerful, caring and always available for a chat, it's not difficult to see why Amelia Mahoney is beloved by her Herbology students and by Hufflepuff, for whom she acts as Head of House. For Amelia, who went to Hogwarts during the time of Harry Potter, the Second Wizarding War remains a painful memory, but one that she's managed to overcome over the past years. But as dangers begin to arise once more in Hogwarts, that fortitude threatens to be taken to its limits, and beyond...
- Beware the Nice Ones: Nobody could ever have imagined that Amelia would be a teacher one might be afraid of, but after witnessing the death of the Head Boy, Brian Badgerworth, Professor Mahoney has been forced to confront a rather unexpected facet of her nature.
- Captive Audience: To Brian's murder, as 'Someone' immobilized and silenced her while they tortured Brian to death
- Green Thumb: Obligatory for a Herbology Professor.
- Mama Bear: Very much so for all of her students, but most especially her Hufflepuffs.
- My Greatest Failure: Failing to prevent an enigmatic attacker from slaughtering one of her students in front of her very eyes.
- Non-Action Guy: For better or for worse, Mahoney's duelling skills aren't quite as polished as some of her contemporaries. For now.
The Professor of Transfiguration and Head of Slytherin House, Jessyca Nagorski is respected by most of the student body for her calm demeanour and undeniable mastery of her subject. Her patience is not unlimited though, as some students might tell you...
- Baleful Polymorph: Whilst Transfiguring students may strictly speaking be forbidden at Hogwarts, Nagorski is not above doing so when sufficiently roused to anger, as Alex Lyons might attest.
- Mind Reading: Whilst Nagorski lacks any talent for Legilimency, her aptitude for Occlumency is incredibly impressive and stems partially from a powerful natural talent as well as her training.
- Playing with Fire: Jessyca has demonstrated an astounding capacity for controlling Fiendfyre, yet further testament to her self-control.
- The Stoic: Nagorski is amongst the more reserved members of the faculty, able to keep her head in a crisis and maintain a level tone even whilst admonishing students.
The Head of Ravenclaw House and Professor of Charms, Morgan Seward is one of the older members of the Hogwarts faculty and one of those most personally acquainted with the horrors of the last Wizarding War. Whilst few would question her aptitude for magic, her tendency towards aggression and whispers of an unsavoury past mean that many students dislike the taciturn Professor, even amongst her own House.
- Anger Born of Worry: Whilst Seward might antagonise her students often, her passionate hatred of the Dark Arts stems primarily from a desire to ensure that they not make the same mistakes that she did.
- The Atoner: This trope just about sums up Professor Seward, a former Death Eater who was drawn into all this by curiosity and peer pressure. While she somewhat believed in the Ideology back then, she was free from that by the time of the roleplay and worked as a teacher to prevent the students from making the mistakes she did.
- Badass Bookworm: Seward is perhaps the most dangerous combatant amongst the Hogwarts faculty, with a deadly aptitude for a wide range of fearsome offensive spells.
- Berserk Button: Don't ever do as much as imply that Seward is (still) involved with dark magic or you will feel her rage.
- Deal with the Devil: Goes without saying for any former servant of the Dark Lord.
- Hypocrite: Despite her own experiences with the Dark Arts, or perhaps due to them, Seward is the most vehemently opposed to the study of Dark Magic by students, sometimes to the point of appearing to be a Knight Templar.
- Offing the Annoyance: At times, Seward can barely restrain herself from carrying out this trope.
- Wild Card: Whether or not Seward remains a practitioner of the Dark Arts remains open to significant debate. For the most part, she seems sympathetic to her co-workers and students despite her clashes with the latter, but occasionally the siren's call of the Dark Arts seems to be more tempting than she might like...
Acting Headmistress of Hogwarts in the absence of Headmaster Newman, and full-time Potions Professor, Callidora Star is the youngest and perhaps most popular of the faculty amongst the students. Of course, that isn't to say she's entirely without her own unsavoury secrets...
- Mind Reading: Star's uncanny insight into the minds of her co-workers and students is not strictly a mundane ability. She's an accomplished Legilimens and Occlumens,capable of surreptitiously plucking secrets from the minds of those she encounters whilst defending her own mind with ease.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Star is well regarded by most of her students and respected by the faculty. Whilst the unexpected responsibility of acting as Headmistress has forced her to take a more authoritative tone that sometimes undermines her rapport with her students, she remains beloved for the most part.
- Young and in Charge: Despite being the youngest full Professor at Hogwarts, Professor Star was entrusted with the role of Acting Headmistress.
The current Flying Instructor at Hogwarts, Fabala and her beloved pet dog Joy are no strangers to life outside of academia. Despite her rather dubious past, Fabala gets on well with her fellow teachers and students.
- Canine Companion: Joy, a tough and loyal hound who's deceptively tough despite his playful demeanour when with children.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Whilst not associated with the same crowd as Seward, Thropp has nonetheless struggled against the authorities pursuing her own particular idea of justice before. Whether or not she went too far is less easy to discern.
- Still Got It: Subverted. Whilst Thropp is more than willing to use her old talents to aid in the investigation of the dangers facing Hogwarts, her combat reflexes are a little rusty, causing her to struggle against an empty suit of inanimate armour on one occasion.
