Name:
Albus Severus Potter

Nicknames:
Al, Momma Bear

Age:
16

Gender:
Male

Sexuality:
Bisexual





Image
Appearance:

Albus most definitely inherited his looks from his father's side. His hair is dark brown, almost black, and his eyes are green. However, he did inherit his mother's pale skin and inability to tan. He stands at 6'0", having just had the immense growth spurt that so many teenage boys do. His frame is narrow, and even though he plays Quidditch, he's not particularly muscular. His style is a strange blend of hipster and nerdy, one that only Albus could pull off.

Wand
Birch, 13 inches, Unicorn Hair, Sturdy

Patronus
Bear

Familiar:
A barn owl called Zelda [x]

Quidditch Position:
Chaser, has played Seeker in the past.

Talents
Albus inherited his father's talent for Defence Against The Dark Arts, taking to it immediately. It was a similar affair with Transfiguration, and within a few weeks, it was discovered that he had also inherited his grandmother's talents for potions. Outside of class, it was no surprise when he turned out to be an excellent dueller. And as for Quidditch, it was one thing he was almost guaranteed to be good at. He's also quite a good gamer when it comes to Muggle gaming.

Weaknesses
Albus is hopeless at Herbology. He kills practically every plant he touches. His sense of direction is terrible, and had he not had his brother James in his first year, he probably wouldn't have lasted the year. He's extremely nervous around every animal that isn't an owl or cat, and the animals frequently pick up on that and misbehave. Most of the time, he can flirt pretty damn well, but when he's around someone he likes, he becomes much more awkward.

Fears
Albus fears never being seen as his own person. It isn't much of a surprise, seeing as he comes from such a famous family, bearing the name of two influential wizards. But his fear is verging on irrational. He's also terrified of big, angry animals.

Personality:

Long gone is the young boy who timidly asked his father about the possibility of him being in Slytherin. Rather ironically, many question why he was sorted into Gryffindor. He certainly doesn't fit the stereotype. While he can be cocky at times, he's far from arrogant. He's incredibly laid back about just about everything- with the exception of Quidditch. But that runs in his blood, so isn't much of a surprise. He doesn't go out of his way to break rules- but if a few get broken in whatever he's doing, well, so be it. But the people who say that he doesn't belong in Gryffindor forget what lies at the core of every Gryffindor. Bravery. Anybody who knows Albus knows that he closely resembles a mother bear- hence his nickname. Threaten anybody he loves, and god help you. He inherited his mother's talents for hexes, and he doesn't fear injury or punishment.

However, Albus also has a terrible sense of direction when he's not on a broomstick. Had it not been for James and the incredible number of family friends in the school in his first year, he wouldn't have survived the year. He can't function around people he's attracted to. He's the definition of painfully awkward on those occasions, to the point where it's almost tangible. He also has no control over any animal larger than a goldfish, and fears animals that are taller than his knees. Some say that his hipster thing is just to stand out, so he won't constantly be living in someone else's shadow- and they're not far from the truth. Albus will do almost anything to stand out, whether it's wearing merch from Muggle games or talking about some obscure band that literally nobody else will have heard of. He would much rather be, "that weird hipster kid" than "harry potter's kid."


History:

Albus was born the second child to Harry and Ginny Potter. They named him after "two of the greatest headmasters" of Hogwarts, wanting to pay respect to those great men. Albus grew up not only with his three siblings, but also with his cousins and numerous children of other families that his parents were friendly with. Albus was perfectly content in who he was until his older brother went to Hogwarts and sent letters home, telling of the various escapades he got into. It was at that point that Albus realised that he had a lot to live up to. His whole family had been Gryffindors, and he was terrified that he wouldn't follow suit.

But a few wise words from his father comforted him. And when he sat on the stool to be sorted, he realised that no matter where he ended up, he'd be loved by his family if nobody else did. The Sorting Hat really had a tough decision to make. Albus was loyal and hardworking, like a Hufflepuff, had brains like a Ravenclaw, was ambitious and just a little cunning like a Slytherin... But the Hat saw the bravery at his core and knew where he was to be placed. And so, Albus joined a long list of Potters in Gryffindor.

At first, he struggled to feel like he belonged. Everyone else just seemed loud and arrogant and unlike Albus. He found friends in the other houses and began to question why he was in Gryffindor. It was only when he ended up in a duel after somebody insulted one of his friends that he realised that he was in the house he belonged to. He still struggled with his sense of identity, especially as sexuality came into it, but he found himself becoming a part of Gryffindor, especially when he joined the Quidditch team in second year.

It took him until he was in fourth year to find who he was and wanted to be and accepted that. And Albus became Gryffindor's resident hipster kid. Once he realised that not all Gryffindors fit the stereotype- and indeed, very few did- he stopped trying to be. And now, Albus has never been happier.




So begins...

The day had been filled with excitement. Rose had been bubbling with anticipation as her and her siblings began their annual migration from her suburban home, to the magical school of Hogwarts. It was a rather long care ride to the station, but it always was, like usual Rose ran onto the platform first, followed by Jessa, and then was joined by Hugo and their parents. Rose said goodbye to her parents, exchanged a promise that she would look after her younger siblings (Especially Jessa), and write often, before she boarded the train that would carry her towards her friends, magic, and her second home.

Rose's bag was heavy, packed with snacks her parents had insisted she take with her, and a few books, well, more than a few, to read along the way. A lot had happened over the summer break, and rose was now eager to trade holiday gossip face to face with her friends. Letters, sent regularly to her closest friends, could unfortunately only do so much. Rose was also at the same time, not so eager to see a few certain people, Rose liked every for the most part, but there were some people that just got on her nerves, like a certain Malfoy boy.

After entering the large castle Rose had always considered her second home, she bounced into the Great Hall, with a horde of other returning students, she skimmed the room looking for familiar faces, though the only ones she could see were that of her three cousins, and Mara Longbottom, who Rose liked to consider one of her closer friends. Standing on her tiptoes to get a better view, Rose managed to spot a few other familiar faces such as Alexander Remus, Emalee Lovegood, and of course Scorpius Malfoy, though seeing him simply made her frown.

Rose shook her head slightly as students started to take their seats at their houses respective table, she made her way to where the many Gryffindor were now sitting chatting about the events from over the summer. She took her seat beside Mara, and across from Albus, James, and Lily, she didn't know why she always sat by them, her cousins always seemed to want to cause trouble.

There however, was still a wall of black robes which were the first years waiting to be sorted, all of the returning students had taken their seats, Rose was now paying Equal attention to the food in front of her and the nervous first years that were slowly being sorted and making their way to their tables.

Once they were all sorted and the black wall had disappeared, a hush fell over the hall. Headmaster Sommers stood at the podium a warm smile across his face as he addressed the students. "To our newest arrivals, I would like to personally welcome you to Hogwarts School of witchcraft and Wizardry, and to our returning students, I wish you a warm welcome back." His voice carried across the hall with little effort, while his eyes danced from face to. "I can see that many of you are already eyeing the food, and I will not be the reason to Prolong your wait." A cheer filled the room which made Rose giggle, if there was one thing all the students could always agree on, it was food. The Headmaster waited patiently for the noise to die down before continuing. "However, I would first like to remind all students, that the Forbidden forest is strictly off limits unless accompanied by a teacher or member of the staff. Professor Hughe has in formed me that a Unicorn that has taken residence near the grounds has delivered a pair of foals, anyone who happens to come across the family is asked to please, be respectful and give them space." Sommers paused for a moment letting the messages sink in. "You may now begin."

The announcement caused another loud cheer, one that faded as everyone began digging into the food.

"I'm surprised you haven't cleared the table yet Albus." Rose looked at her cousin with a bright smile and raised eyebrows, it seemed everyone was rather hungry. "How were your holidays?" Rose asked basically everyone around her, unable to wait until after dinner, she leaned in slightly and added with a clear excitement. "I learned some new tricks for Quidditch, over summer. We are going to wipe the floor with the other teams this year." Though Rose didn't usually speak in such a matter, one thing she was, was competitive, especially when it came to Quidditch.

King's Cross was as loud as ever. Albus was part the age of waiting for his parents, and instead, he ploughed through the crowd, constantly searching for his friends as he did so. Some over-eager first years had come in their uniforms, and were getting strange looks from the Muggles around the station. Albus rolled his eyes and headed straight for the platform. He was planning on going straight through the barrier, but the calls of his mother caused him to stop. "Al, I told you to wait for your sister!"

"Mom, James doesn't have to!"
"Yes, well, that's James, darling. Now, all together..."

They passed through the barrier, and Albus was gone again, heading straight for his usual compartment on the train. It was only once he was sure that he'd secured their compartment that he went back to his parents to say goodbye. There was the usual lecture, telling him to look out for his siblings, not to get into too much trouble (which Albus always thought was rich- Uncle Ron had told them the stories of what they'd all gotten up to when they were in school) and to write home plenty.

Once the whistle blew for the train, Albus climbed back on and headed straight for the compartment. He and his friends were instantly engaged in conversation, catching up on what they'd all done.

By the time they'd reached the school, Albus's stomach was growling with hunger. He stared intently at the Sorting, attempting to speed it up through sheer willpower alone. However, it didn't work. It took as long as ever, and Albus only grew hungrier. He knew it was due to his growth spurts, but it didn't change the fact that he was almost constantly hungry. He had to resist the temptation to groan as the Headmaster started to speak- but, thankfully, he kept it brief, and the food appeared in front of them.

He laughed a little at Rose's comment. "The food's only just appeared, Rose, give me time!" He replied as he piled his plate high. "Well, you know how my summer was, we saw each other like every other day," he joked. He leaned in as she made the comment about Quidditch. "Aw yeah. Slytherin's going down for sure this year."

Alexander stared at the platform for a long moment. Good ol' Platform 9 3/4, here I come once again, he thought to himself before plunging into the column that led to the familiar station at which the Hogwarts Express was. The train was already there, and the entire platform was bustling noisily with all of the students. The first years were loud as ever, excited for their first trip on the Express. Alexander made his way to the train, dragging his belongings behind him, Creature perched on his shoulder.

"Good boy, Creature," he said, scratching him gently under the chin. The cat purred loudly at Alexander's sign of affection and nudged his ear in return. Alexander couldn't help but smile slightly as he continued on, trying to get to an empty compartment as quickly as possible. The trip on the Hogwarts Express to Hogwarts was probably his least favourite part of attending the school, as it was crowded and cramped and noisy beyond all reason. When he finally found an empty compartment, he tossed his bags onto the shelf above the seat, and Creature hopped down from his shoulder onto the cushion of the bench. Alexander sighed as he sat down next to his beloved Familiar. "Just one more year, Creature," he said as he watched the scruffy-looking cat curl up beside him.
...
As Alexander walked through the familiar halls of the castle, Creature trotting along beside his heel, he noticed quite a few first years running to the Great Hall. He meandered his way there, taking his seat at the Slytherin table once he did arrive. Scorpius was already there, and in all honesty, Alexander wasn't the fondest of him. They were sort of friends; however, Alexander saw them more as acquaintances than anything else really. As he looked around at all of the people entering, he noticed Rose Weasley's head poke out of the crowd, and he knew she was on her tiptoes attempting to find people.

She had a habit of doing that, at least on the first day of school that is. He couldn't help but slightly snicker at her little quirk. It was funny, mostly because she did it every year and hasn't changed since the first time he saw her walk into the Great Hall. He admired her in a way.

Once everyone had seated themselves and the first years had been sorted into the houses, Headmaster Sommers gave a short speech as always before letting everyone dig in. Alexander was always fascinated by the way that Hogwarts did their meals in the Great Hall. It truly was magical, but part of him was always slightly concerned that he was just swallowing magical substance that only made him feel full. Nonetheless, the ate his fill.

Mara had made a very detailed checklist for herself before making sure she had everything she needed for her final year at Hogwarts as a student. She huffed to herself while removing a few curled and blonde strands of hair from her face. She grabbed her things and walked down the stairs and eyed her mother and father, as they were proud of their baby girl. Mara rolled her eyes at them as she reached the last step. "Please do not cry and give me the same speech as the first six years." She practically demanded of them both as they looked at each other then back at Mara. "Just make sure you stay out of trouble, sweetheart." Her father, Neville said while hugging her close to him. "Yeah and no more witty arguments with the professors." Her mother, Hannah said with a wink then a hug.

"Okay, okay. Can we leave now? I do not want to be late." She asked as they escorted her to the car and made sure her luggage was well secured before proceeding on to the train station, known as King's Cross. She immediately jumped out of the vehicle, basically before it even stopped and grabbed her things while rushing towards Platform 9 3/4. Her parents rushed after her and caught up with her before she went through the wall. "Honey, honey. Do we not get a kiss goodbye or anything?" Neville asked as he looked at Hannah, who shrugged her shoulders, too, and really didn't care on that matter. Again, Mara sighed and rolled her eyes, hugging her father and mother goodbye and kissing her father on the cheek before disappearing before their eyes on the other side of the wall.

Her eyes widened as she stood beside the train once again. She was completely memorized by the sight even though she has seen it multiple times before. Mara boarded the train and took an empty compartment then placed her luggage above her head before taking a seat. She hummed to herself while waiting for the train to take off. A knock came over her compartment door and it startled her a bit as it was her good friend, Sierra. They exchanged hello's and talked about what they did over the break but Sierra had to leave to go to her compartment as the train was beginning to leave.

The scenery towards Hogwarts was beautiful, in her own opinion. She stared out the window and just watched while grasping everything. She jumped slightly when another knock came over her compartment door and it was the lady with the goodies. "No, thanks." Mara waved her on her way as she went back to staring outside, seeing the castle in the distance as she stood and immediately placed on her robes while shrieking in excitement.

As the train stopped and everyone basically pushed themselves through, she did the same and barely made it. She walked through the halls of the castle and can really tell that nothing had be changed though an unfamiliar aura loomed over the castle or maybe it was just her. She placed her luggage down in the Gryfinndor's Common Room for the girls then made her way over towards The Great Hall, where she sat down at the table, waving at her fellow Gryfinndor wizards.

"How...?" Before she could ask anyone how their summer was, a hush came over the hall as the Headmaster spoke the welcoming then encouraged them to eat food. The noise of many chatterboxes rose over the hall again and Mara fixed herself a small portion on the plate before her. She eyed Rose, who spoke towards Albus as she giggled at her comment then listened to his. "I am excited for Team Gryfinndor this year. I made a cute little cheerleader outfit over the summer. I hope it comes in handy so you guys better give it your best this year." She slightly scowled towards the Quidditch members at the table as if she was their coach or something then smiled afterwards.

"So, besides Albus, how was everyone else's summer?" She took a bite from her food then eyed everyone to see who was going to be the first one to respond to her question.

"You are in your seventh year, Alexander, and yet you still have that look on your face. Do not worry, House Elves make the food," Scorpius said before he began eating. "Yes, Scorpius. I'm well aware. It's just... It just feels like I can taste the magic on it or something. I'm not sure what it is," Alexander responded. Scorpius was an interesting character to say the least. Alexander saw what was on the outside, a seemingly friendly boy with no malicious intentions; however, Alexander remembered when Scorpius first came to Hogwarts, how arrogant and rash he acted. That's when he got hexed by a group of older Gryffindors. Alexander was coming around the corner when it happened, but he didn't do anything to stop them. It was too late at that point. Since then, Scorpius is much quieter and gives off a friendly attitude towards people. Deep down, Alexander knows that he's putting on a façade of some sort. No one goes from arrogant punk to sweet and friendly just from getting hexed and hurt.

After the meal, Alexander meandered his way out of the Great Hall, passing by Rose Weasley as he left. He stared at her as he walked by, smirking as he did so. As he looked away, he noticed the first years rushing to the common rooms. Better avoid going there for a bit, he thought to himself. Instead, he decided to take a stroll to the Greenhouses to check on the plants they had growing there. Alexander loved Herbology, so he went to the Greenhouses frequently when he had the time. Normally, Alexander went here alone, but for some reason, he felt like he was being followed.

When he got to the houses, Professor Plantain was tending to the plants. "Hello, Professor,"
Alexander said as he skimmed over a few of the plants with his fingertips. "Anything special this year? he asked, curious as to what they'd be learning this year.

"Not this year, Mr. Remus," he responded, not looking up and continuing to tend to the plants. Alexander continued to walk around the greenhouse, observing all of the different plants. This was his last year at Hogwarts, and he was going to miss it.
