Tavish Malcolm MacKinlay

Postby WolfMoon » November 2nd, 2017, 11:57 am

Tavish Malcolm MacKinlay

Forum Username: WolfMoon

Character name: Tavish Malcolm MacKinlay

Blood Status: Halfblood

Age, Year & House: 13 (June 9th 2001), Third Year, Hufflepuff

Patronus: None yet, but will be a lion (Lions are loud and outgoing, their bravery abundant. They are always saying what they believe is the right thing and generally being all around friendly people. They are also incredibly helpful, ready to do whatever is in their power to help with a cause, and once they find something they care about they are strongly loyal to it. They are the same in their affections, loving with their whole heart. The most common house for a lion Patronus is, not Gryffindor, but Hufflepuff. The most common signs are Leo and Gemini.)

Optional: Wand: Hazel, Unicorn hair, 10 ½ inches, pliable

A sensitive wand, hazel often reflects its owner’s emotional state, and works best for a master who understands and can manage their own feelings. Others should be very careful handling a hazel wand if its owner has recently lost their temper, or suffered a serious disappointment, because the wand will absorb such energy and discharge it unpredictably. The positive aspect of a hazel wand more than makes up for such minor discomforts, however, for it is capable of outstanding magic in the hands of the skillful, and is so devoted to its owner that it often ‘wilts’ (which is to say, it expels all its magic and refuses to perform, often necessitating the extraction of the core and its insertion into another casing, if the wand is still required) at the end of its master’s life (if the core is unicorn hair, however, there is no hope; the wand will almost certainly have ‘died’). Hazel wands also have the unique ability to detect water underground, and will emit silvery, tear-shaped puffs of smoke if passing over concealed springs and wells.

Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard.
Minor disadvantages of unicorn hair are that they do not make the most powerful wands (although the wand wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may 'die' and need replacing.

Appearance: (Hair, Height, Build, etc.) Tavish has auburn hair and blue eyes. Just like Lyall he has pale skin but in summer he usually gets some freckles. He is 1.64m tall and will grow to be 1.73m.

Personality: Tavish is friendly towards everyone.

He is absolutely loyal to his family, especially his brother. He is very hard-working and he is always there for a friend in need.

He spends a lot of time in the kitchens and the house elves have agreed to help feeding his cat.

History: Tavish was born and grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, to Halfblood* father James Malcolm MacKinlay and Pureblood mother Alison MacKinlay (née Mackenzie). He has an older half-brother named Lyall James MacKinlay who attends Hogwarts in his sixth year, a younger sister named Jamie Alison MacKinlay and an older half-sister sister named Aileen Rhona Gallagher (born March 3rd, 1992) who is married to a wandmaker named Michael Gallagher. They live in Ireland.
His family always enjoyed living among Muggles and was fascinated by their way of life without magic. His father owns a pub in Glasgow where Tavish usually watches football matches. He supports Celtic Football Club.
They have a house near Inverness where they usually spend some time of the year when they are not in their big flat above the pub in Glasgow. The house is looked after by Alison’s sister and the two house elves Skipper and Keeny.

Strengths: Playing the violin and the guitar, he has an artistic disposition, patience

Weaknesses: Too helpful/ soft-hearted (he often doesn’t recognise when people try to use him), tries everything to be to his brother’s liking, perfectionist

Other Skills: Academics, his favourite subjects are Astronomy (he even spends most of his free time with that subject), Art and Herbology, he can also play the bagpipes.

Interests: He is interested in his family’s history, in Scottish traditions (he knows how to play the bagpipes and sometimes wears a kilt at home for special festivities) and tries to learn Scottish Gaelic.

Tavish always cheers for his best friend Cameron when he plays Quidditch.

Tavish wants to become a wandmaker like his half-sister’s husband.

Academics: Astronomy (O), Care of Magical Creatures (E), Transfiguration (A), Charms (A), DADA (A/P), Muggle Studies (E), Herbology (E), History of Magic (P), Potions (A) and Ancient Runes (E)

Extra curricular subjects: He took Elemental and Intuitive Magic (E) as extracurricular subject. He is in the Hogwarts orchestra, playing the violin.

Notes: He speaks Glaswegian/ Glasgow Patter. When he tries to speak English, he sometimes has a Scottish accent and even uses typical Scottish words, but still he can be understood (most of the time). His accent is stronger when he is excited or upset.

Lyall and Tavish use the family’s short-eared owl. Tavish owns a Bengal cat named Finley that needs a lot of attention and sometimes follows him through the castle.

His best friend at Hogwarts is Tavish MacKinlay.
