William "Will" Gray

Postby Alien Iris » April 25th, 2018, 1:16 pm

Forum Username: Iris Featherfew

Character name: William “Will” Gray

Blood Status: Half-blood

Age, Year & House: 16, 6th, Hufflepuff

Patronus: Currently a fine mist. Would probably be some sort of Jellyfish. The reason it’s a jelly fish is because it looks cool. Really not much of another reason ((I might come up with something else later, just got nothing at the moment))

Wand: Willow, Dragon Heartstring, 13 ½ inches, Swishy Flexibility

Willow is an uncommon wand wood with healing power, and I have noted that the ideal owner for a willow wand often has some (usually unwarranted) insecurity, however well they may try and hide it. While many confident customers insist on trying a willow wand (attracted by their handsome appearance and well-founded reputation for enabling advanced, non-verbal magic) my willow wands have consistently selected those of greatest potential, rather than those who feel they have little to learn. It has always been a proverb in my family that he who has furthest to travel will go fastest with willow.

As a rule, dragon heartstrings produce wands with the most power, and which are capable of the most flamboyant spells. Dragon wands tend to learn more quickly than other types. While they can change allegiance if won from their original master, they always bond strongly with the current owner.

Appearance: His hair is dark brown and wavy, cut short. He also has brown eyes, calmer than the others in his family

Personality: William is the calmest in his entire family, as the only Hufflepuff. But being calm doesn’t necessarily mean he lost the Grey gene of being outspoken. Where he tries not to create conflict and is generally more understanding than his close family, he still sticks to his opinions while still being a good mediator.

He is fairly focused on his grades, he wants to be a Healer at St. Mungos when he gets out of Hogwarts. This requires expecially good grades, all O’s and E’s with 5 NEWTS.

Unlike his sister, Will has his fair share of friends. He’s just a generally pleasant person to be around. He grows plants in his spare time, they are cluttered on his windowsill.

History: Will is a half-blood, born to a Muggleborn Mother and a Half-Blood Father. He is the second youngest of four. His two older brothers and younger sister went into each of the other houses, so as a result, they have house cup chore tournaments during the summer.

The Gray household is a loud place full of shouting and clanging pots and general ruckus. Any newcomers are generally taken aback by the environment. Will isn’t an incredibally loud person but he thrives in these types of enviroments. For this reason he loves the Hufflepuff common room, theres always something going on.

His family openly opposes Grindelwald. This worries William more than he lets on. He’s afraid that Grindelwalds supporters will come after him and his sister, along with the rest of his family. Even with this he is hesitant to label someone as “dangerous” no matter who they are. This isn’t exactly a good thing.

Strengths, Weaknesses, Other Skills:
Strengths: Friendly, Herbology, Mediation
Weaknesses: Fairly Gullible, Care of Magical Creatures (he quit), seeing others as dangerous
Skills: Green Thumb

Classes: Astronomy A
Charms E
Defense Against the Dark Arts E (barely managed, he struggles a lot in this class, but bookwork keeps his head above the water)
Herbology O
History of Magic A
Potions E
Transfiguration E

Elective Classes: Elemental and Intuitive Magic E
Magical Theory E

Extra-curricular Activities: None at the moment. He does support all school activities he can however. He watches all the Quidditch games, all the concerts and all the various performances that he can.

If a 6th or 7th year, a list of NEWT classes: Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, Potions, and Transfiguration

Status: Seen Fantastic Beasts and loved it
