Holly Deering ϟ Metal-Charmer ϟ FC: Chloe Bennet ϟ OPEN
↳ Holly has friends in high places and isn’t afraid to exploit it for it’s benefits. Working as a Metal-Charmer, repairing Quidditch stadiums and making sure all other manner of professional Quidditch game equipment is in working shape, she’s sneaked her way into the high life of raging post-game parties in the mansions of big named athletes and exclusive VIP benefits gifted to her at random. In the last few years she’s gone from being a nerdy outsider to the girl who lives a fast, exciting life at the top, and because of it she’s begun to believe she can have just about anything she wants, even if that’s not the case. And it’s a good thing, that, because Holly always wants something. Something more, something better, something deeper, something different. After having a taste of what life can be like when you step out of your comfort zone, she’s always searching for the next thing to dip her toes in and then the next and the next, never slowing down, never ceasing to discover, never resting for fear if she does, she’ll grow content once more with the people she knows and the place that she’s at. Content enough to stop seeking the next best thing, giving little thought to what or who she leaves behind.
✔ Outgoing, adventurous, charming
✕ Self-centered, insatiable, forward, restless

Seren Otwell ϟ Squib ϟ FC: Kathryn Prescott ϟ OPEN
↳ Seren doesn’t come from much. Her loving parents met at the same greenhouse where they still work, providing magical plants to Apothecaries and Potion masters in the area. She continues to live with her family in a house that is neither too big nor too little. She likes what she likes and doesn’t what she doesn’t, and everything about Seren is entirely, 100%, indisputably normal. Except for the fact that it isn’t. Born into a magical family without the ability to do magic herself, Seren might be normal by Muggle standards, but in the Wizarding World she is far from it. She’s met by obstacles at almost every turn and treated by most people as though she suffers from a great handicap, and in some ways she does. She was denied the same education as most girls her age, has been expected by society to fail at almost everything she’s ever tried, and has so few opportunities for employment in the Wizarding World that on several occasions it’s been suggested she leave altogether. But despite everyone waiting for her to fail, Seren has high hopes for herself. She may not be able to do magic on her own, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still enjoy the world she was born into, even when she’s met with prejudice and pessimism at almost every turn. In fact, Seren likes being a Squib. She likes that this challenge has been put before her, and that no one expects her to succeed in it aside from herself. She likes that she’s given the privilege of existing in both the Magical and Muggle worlds. She loves that she’ll never be expected to hold a dingy Ministry suit-and-tie job, and most of all she likes that one day, she’s going to prove everyone wrong about what exactly Squibs are capable of contributing to the world they belong in.
✔ Cheerful, activist, calm
✕ Interfering, touchy
- Works at Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour
- Graduate of 1978 (Muggle community school and homeschooling in wand-less magical arts)
Brion Lynwood ϟ Post Office Worker ϟ FC: Ian Harding ϟ OPEN
↳ Exceedingly bright in his youth and with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Brion had always yearned to become a professor at the small, and often overlooked, Castletown Academy of Magical Arts on the Isle of Man where he was born and raised. He succeeded in securing himself a position, only to learn the following year that the department of Island Mythology he taught in would be cut from the school’s program indefinitely for lack of interest. It appeared that Brion was one of the very few wizards who had interest in the magical creatures that were rumored to be a part of the area’s history. Too prideful to take a position in another department, Brion not only left the Castletown Academy of Magical Arts, but the Island of Man all together after being laughed out of the school for defending the importance of his subject. He found himself in the village of Hogsmeade, homeless, friendless, and desperate for a job after the Headmaster of Hogwarts, one Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, regretfully informed Brion that no positions were yet available for him to fill in the school. Unenthusiastically, Brion took the first open position in the village he could find, working in the Post Office sorting letters for the owls to deliver. It was uninteresting work; tedious, mindless, and degrading. And for months he continued his work there begrudgingly.
It wasn’t until a clean shaven man in an expensive cloak caught him outside of the Post Office one night, a heavy bag of gold in his hand and a request on his lips, that Brion found any joy in his job. Offering to double Brion’s wages, the mysterious man had only two simple requests. The first, that Brion would offer to work in both the Hogsmeade Post Office and the Office in Knockturn Alley. The second, that he would read and report back, in secret, the letters of a questionable list of names. Names often associated with dark activity. Desperate for adventure and hungry for knowledge, Brion eagerly accepted the offer. It wasn’t until much later that he realized just how much danger such a task could put him in.
✔ Curious, astute, prideful
✕ Downtrodden, confused

Iacomus Farley ϟ Unspeakable ϟ FC: Sean Faris ϟ OPEN
↳ Iacomus, often introduced as Jake to those he doesn’t think capable of pronouncing his full name, has always believed that a successful life comes from a perfect balance. A person must be as cruel as they are kind, have as many intelligent moments as they do temporary lapses in brain functionality, and as many people to hate as they have to love. He has searched for balance his whole life, and believes wrongly that he had finally found it. What he does not understand is that in his search for balance, he has crafted himself into an individual incapable of continuity. He will act the perfect gentleman one day only to be unnecessarily cruel the next, without acting on his true feelings for fear of tipping the scale. Iacomus has fashioned his life into a play, one in which he is the lead, director, and audience. By forcing himself to act opposite of his desired reaction on most occasions, he has suppressed whoever it is that he really is at the core down so far that Iacomus “Jake” Farley remains as big a secret to himself as his work as an Unspeakable is to the public, and one day soon that “balance” he believes himself to have found is going to tip far enough to throw him off of the scale entirely.
✔ Amusing, idealistic
