a character in “Hogwarts: Nineteen Years Later”, as played by Colonel_Masters

Description

Name (first & last): Stephen Max Bradly
Grade (1st-7th): 1st aged 11 and 6 months
Blood: Half blood
House: unknown yet but he does has a strong desire to prove himself
Appearance and personality: Stephen's most striking feature is his bright white hair, he is white skinned but not pale and his eyes are brown. Stephen is tall for his age and bares himself with a strange sense of pride.
Stephen was raised by his grandfather who had lost most of his family to the war against the death eaters 19 years ago and Stephen's mother when Stephen was five years old, Stephen's father was killed by a dark wizard before Stephen was born. Stephen only learned about the magical world when he got his school letter because his grandfather wanted Stephen to live a peaceful life without the magic that had taken everything away from him. Stephen got the truth out of his grandfather eventually but knows little about the magical world, this ignorance disturbs Stephen to no end as he doesn't like to rely on other people for information or anything really. Stephen feels inferior and wants to prove his strength and determination to this new world, he is however suspicious of new people and likes to keep to himself. He isn't anti social, he simply feels like and outsider and has no clue on the matter of how to adapt himself to his new surroundings. Stephen doesn't like to waste time and likes to call himself by his second name "Max" because of this, he anger's at arrogance and stupidity and despises his own personal weaknesses and those of other people. Stephen has a liking to sarcastic and ironic humor and enjoys reading about history, Stephen has however lived all his life in the Muggle world and relates to it unlike his new relationship with the magical world. Stephen likes to fight and prove his strength by conflict, when given a challenge Stephen takes it very seriously and while he respects the skills and strengths of other people finds it very difficult to accept defeat in anything.

HEDWIG (why did she have to die! :( )

Stephen was trying to find a compartment in the train but they were all ether empty or full and Stephen was sick of sitting alone, he had already dressed up in the robes and had nothing more to do on his own. Stephen was not used to a train like this probably because the world he came from had stopped using steam trains and the like at least a few decades ago in most parts of the world. Why did a train service run by Mr magic have to run on steam? He didn't have any problem with the actual train he was simply irritated by the pointless waste of time; was it so difficult to give each student a compartment number?
Stephen knew this wasn't the real reason for his irritation, finding the platform was also a time consuming effort and Stephen was lucky he had the sense to arrive early. But the real reason for his irritated mood was Grandfather's stubborn refusal to accompany him to the station or to even tell him how to enter it in the first place!

Stephen still had a hard time accepting all this change in his life, he had seen all the proof he needed to see to acknowledge magic was as real as daylight but this was beside the point; Stephen found it hard to accept that all this existed without him even guessing it, when his powers began to show themselves Stephen began to suspect but he would have never guessed that all of this existed. The greatest annoyance was his ignorance and utter reliance on complete strangers for even specks of information.
His grandfather had at least accompanied him while buying all the wired stuff he would need for the school, Stephen's pride and joy was his wand; the wand was the second wand he had tried out but when he came into contact with it the feeling was not of his world, Oak and Phoenix feather it didn't seem like much but already Stephen felt a bond with it and to him it seemed completely wicked (in a cool way)

Stephen was roaming his way looking for a compartment with at least a few people in it so he could ask them the many questions he still had in his mind to avoid looking a complete fool at the school. On his way he encountered a strange looking girl; she had white hair a bit like his own and probably the reason he had noticed her in the first place. He followed her to one of the compartments and cached a few of the words exchanged between her and the "potters". Again that name "potter" why was it such a big deal? Stephen only heard a few scraps of information from his grandfather about how his uncles were killed fighting the forces of a man named "you know who" which was the problem; Stephen didn't know who you know who was. apparently a man named harry potter stopped him and later on destroyed him. Stephen's father was still killed by the remains of "you know who's" army so this potter wasn't that much of a hero in Stephen's life.

Stephen approached the girl with the white hair and asked her:

"Any room here?" Stephen who was now in the compartment looked around and saw a number of people, he also saw the girl's tattoo which seemed rather cool to him.

Dioda looked at Stephen and narrowed her eyes before nodding at him. "You don't want to sit with the Potters. You can sit with me. I'll all alone anyways," she said, looking at his white hair. It was just as white as hers which catched her curiousity. Not many people had white hair and the few who had that the colour was mostly a very light blonde. Her hair was just pure white which fitted the grey, light blue eyes of her and the pale skin colour she had. It fitted her in any way it could.

She leaded him to her compartment and sat down. She looked at him and smiled slightly. She looked outside at the castle before looking back at him. "My name is Dioda "Tom Riddle" Servy. Daughter of Voldemort or, You Know Who."

When the train stopped, she leaded him out and looked at Hagrid with hatred eyes. "Hello Hagrid," she said coldly as she leaded Stephen to the boats. She sat in one of the boats and waited for him to join her.

Stephen was impressed with the girl Dioda, as far as he could tell being the daughter of this you know who chap wasn't going to do her any good and her being so frank about it was ether brave or stupid. The strange thing was that Stephen didn't feel any real animosity to her; he had never known his father or his uncles and since the magic war was nearly 20 years ago she probably never knew her own father as well as she would have wanted to. The potters seemed all right but Stephen really didn't want to deal with a large number of strangers at the moment. So Stephen followed her saying to the potters "catch you all later, it seems you have no room here any way."

Stephen remained silent for a few moments before returning the smile and said: "my name is Stephen Max Bradly or just Max if you want to save time, the problem is i don't really know who you know who is; my grandfather didn't want me to have magic in my life because a lot of the family got killed in a magic war and two of his sons, my uncles killed each other while fighting in it. This is all rather new to me so sorry if i don't know a lot, trust me i do not like looking like a complete idiot."

Stephen looked out the window as he saw a looming castle in the distance, he could not help but grasp and awe at the gigantic structure.

As Dioda stood up and leaded him to the boats she looked at him. "Voldemort was one of the most powerfull wizards. He wanted to kill Harry because Harry was a Horcrux, a part of him. I watched my father die.." She took out a picture and showed it to him. It was her with her father in the Forbidden Forest. They had made some fun that day and she really missed her father. Though she was so old, well, older then the rest, she was only in her 3th year. The teacher had given her a chance to go to Hogwarts and was glad about that. She wouldn't hace come far without the school.

She sat in one of the boats and waited for Stephen to join her. She would tell him everything about her father, the war, her revenge plans on the Potter family. She hoped he would come in Slytherin.

Stephen was puzzled at the mention of the word Horcrux, never mind he would find out about it later. Stephen felt a comradeship with Dioda and was glad to have at least one friendly person to talk to even if she seemed rather strange. Remembering a line from one of the books he had read a few weeks ago Stephen said:

"Well as the saying goes; there is no good or evil there is only power and the will to use it, it is the victor which decides who is good and who is evil" when Dioda showed a picture of her and her father Stephen commented "I have no pictures of my father he died before i was born, I guess you were lucky enough to have had at least a little time with him or unlucky in the sense that you knew him and saw him die"

the boat ride was as if Stephen was traveling from one world to another as the castle got closer and closer, on the way Stephen asked questions about Hogwarts and learned about the different houses; these didn't make a load of sense to him but then again hardly anything did.
An old woman waited for them on the dock, from this view the castle seemed like a dream and Stephen could not wait to get inside it. The groups split, all the new students were gathered together into a group and so they entered the great hall. The hall was a truly divine place, hundreds of students sat by a series of tables all neatly set in four rows; it seemed that each row was that of another house and already Stephen wondered were he would go. He knew that each house had its "guardian" animal such as the snake the raven and the lion, he personally liked the lion but that was beside the point; this wasn't about which house had the coolest logo. As each of the students was called to the sorting hat; a living hat!!! as one of the potter's walked towards the hat Stephen called "good luck!" he didn't want to rely one one person all the time and that potter seemed to be alright. After a few other kids including Dioda and an example of slytherin's popularity it was Stephen's turn next.

He walked steadily towards the sorting hat dying to prove himself in the eyes of the crowd, when he sat down on the great chair and the had was placed on top of his head Stephen was surprised at the hat's level of speech:

"Hoo i haven't felt a Bradly in a long time! not since your father"
Stephen replied to the hat a little confused "you know my father?"
The had replied in a tone with a hint of patronizing "Yes he came here just like you are here now, I put him in Gryffindor, very brave your father was and so are you"
Stephen looked at the waiting mass at the tables before saying coldly "I am not my father, I don't need to prove anything to him; only to myself"
The hat chuckled and said happily still with a hint of patronizing "Indeed you are not your father, but such bravery could be put to could use in Gryffindor and such a mind would work wonders in Ravenclaw. But if you want to prove yourself prove yourself you shall!" the Hat shouted with a great voice worthy of a first class actor "Slytherin!"

Stephen smiled at his new house which was clapping and saw the snake's banner now actually preferring it to the lion, when the other three houses booed Stephen mealy smiled and said to them loudly:

"The thing about snakes is that if you lash at the tail the snake will simply bite you"

He then used the resulting silence of the crowds to sit by the Slytherin table and search for Dioda.

Dioda looked at Malice and sighed. "He hated Muggles and Muggle born Wizards to start with. I not sure really. I only know that the war almost had killed Harry but Harry was a Horcrux. My father would do anything to kill Harry. I was two when he died," she said calmly, hiding the sadness. She took out the picture and showed it to Malice. Dioda and Voldemort next to each other smiling and on the background the Forbidden Forest. She wonderd where Stephen was.

Blake walked in the school, he greeted a very old professor Mc'Gonagal and he watched some of the students get sorted, he saw a bot with white hair get sorted to Slytherin, he began clapping the he heard what the kid said. "The snake will simply bite you." Blake cheered. "Damn right!" he yelled out, he patted the kid on the back.

"Nice, I like that attitude." Blake said. "I'm Blake Black, and yeah don't say anything about my grand dad." Blake said, he could tell the kid knew his Grandfather Serious Black, an accused mass murderer. And Serious was Harry Potter's Godfather/uncle/somewhat father figure. Yeah Blake got a lot of attention though he didn't really know his grandfather.

Stephen spotted Dioda sitting with a girl he believed was named Malice, he smiled and made his way to the empty space on the bench and sat down near them and said with a grin "Hi Dioda, Malice seems like we are all in the same boat,(turning to Malice) I am Stephen Max Bradly by the way but you can call me Max" then an older came along and patted Stephen on the back. Stephen laughed happy to have been able to gain friends so quickly in this new world. He smiled and spoke with a glad voice with more then a hint of pride "Thanks, Blake Black was it? I am Stephen Max Bradly but just call me Max" Stephen had heard a bit about Serious Black mainly from the train but he didn't really know anything, anyway the kid had asked not to talk about him so what was the point of bringing it up?

He then said speaking to Blake, Dioda and Malice "Well Blake this is Dioda and this is Malice both new Slytherin such as myself although Dioda i think was born one if i understand stuff around here. Dioda, Malice this is Blake Black a fellow Slytherin comrade how about we sit together?" Stephen then proceeded to fill his plate with a number of meats and salads, he had never seen such a feast in his life.

Dioda didn't psy attention, like she was off the world. She was just trying to block the tears and such, not wanting to cry with others along her side. She would cry when she was alone. She dmiled at Malice as she puts the picture away, than smiles at Stephen and Blake.

Malice smiled warmly, glad to be engaged with people for once. "Hello Max and Blake. Malice Errenhall. Nice to meet you," she said. Malice was sincerely glad that she'd met with more of her fellow Slytherins. She looked at Dioda. Her first friend seemed trouble. Malice felt bad about saying the comment about Harry Potter. She'd save the subject for another time. After all, it was hard to lose a parent. Malice couldn't imagine losing a loved one. She never had.

Dioda watched with a small smile before looking at Malice. ''Yeah, can't wait..'' she said and smiled at Malice. She looked over at Blake and then Stephen who seemed to have the greatest fun in the world but as soon as it came, the feast ended.

Stephen really wanted to sleep but he simply could not, today had been something special of the kind he had never before experienced in his life. Stephen felt at home in this great castle, so far away from his grandfather's house and its hard discipline. Stephen actually took comfort in the knowledge that whatever discipline this school commanded he would be able to take it, at least here he had equals to talk to. Stephen heard a noise from the common room and decided to go investigate it having nothing better to do. Years of sneaking to his friends houses at night from his grandfather's house gave him some useful skills for this sort of thing so Stephen didn't wake any of the near by students, Stephen saw Blake move in his bed but he didn't think Blake was awake and continued his slow journey.

Stephen didn't see what had caused the noise now but decided to explore Hogwarts any way, he was up and about so why go back to bed? Stephen wondered the area for a few minutes before seeing some one ahead. Stephen sneaked closer for a better view and saw that it was Dioda, deciding to play a little game with her Stephen continued to sneak behind her wondering were she was going.

Blake saw Stephen sneak away. Blake smiled, he pulled out his wand

Image

Blake did a little whirling of his wand making it do a couple little light spells to practice first Blake was now ready. "Geminio!" he whispered not to wake anyone, he felt a little energy come out of him, it flowed to his wand then out, Growing out of Blake's wand was a duplicate of him, it went and laid in his bed. Blake smiled, he could venture off now.

Blake followed Stephen then decided to scare him "Quietus." he then said more energy coming out, he now had no sound coming from his foot steps, Blake smiled, he had been practising his magic and it was paying off. Blake smiled, he sneaked up behind Stephen then jumped on his back.

Dioda cocked her head and smiled. She turned around and looked at Stephen and Blake, holding back her laugh. She knew she had been followed by Stephen but never heard Blake. He must have been using a spell so they couldn't hear him. That was quite impressive and maybe that could help her. She knew the spell, had it used before and it had helped her back than. You would make no sound and you could easily sneak up behind someone. It was a usefull spell.

Wow! shouted Stephen as some one jumped on him from behind him, unready for it Stephen fell down. Stephen looked around and saw Blake chuckling, standing up Stephen made a few half serious swipes at him and then stopped when he saw his growing amusement. Stephen eventually joined Blake in laughter and cleaned himself up.

Stephen saw that Dioda has spotted them, he turned to face her and gave an embarrassed smile.

"Sorry about that...., were are you going any way?"

Dioda rolled her eyes as she watched the two boys. Boys were like small children forever and they never grew up, always stayed a child. It was actually quite amusing to watch them sometimes as they did the weirdest stuff. She saw Stephen turn around and questiond her what she was doing. Dioda looked at him and smirked. "Well, first I was trying to follow the two Potters. I need something of them and this could have been my chance if Blake didn't jump on you. Anyways, I knew you were following so I thought to show you my coming pet," Dioda grinned. She knew everything about the Basilisk and she could speak Parseltongue. Just like her father spoke Parseltongue she spoke it too.

She got out a chicken egg and looked at the two boys. Breeding a Basilisk wasn't always to easy. You had to hetch a chicken egg under a toad. So the King of Serpents was born. She could keep the Basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets.

Dioda looked at Blake and then Stephen. "Nothing important." She looked at the chickenegg in her hands and then back at the two boys before her. "But, I really need to hurry a bit. I don't want my pet to die because I love it," she said, softly putting the egg back in the inner pocket of her black dress. It had to be kept warm a bit, soon it would lay under the toad and hatch.

"What pet? all I can see is an egg" said Stephen, his face now had the look of curious wonder; one that some usually older people claimed to be very cute and this infuriated Stephen to no end.

Stephen could not help but be a servant to his curiosity, he so disliked not knowing things when other people knew them. Still puzzled Stephen was shocked to hear that the pet may die and said with an alarmed tone

"Why is your pet going to die? is it sick? can i help it get better?" Stephen tried to get a better view of the egg but was still very puzzled by it.

Remembering what she had said before as she went away leave made Stephen even more curious then before and so he could not help asking after running after her to catch pace "What did you want from the potters? i think one of them was put into our house so maybe you can ask her to help you talk with her brothers.

Malice never went to sleep in the first place.
She had conversed with her sister, then crawled into her bed. But she hadn't followed asleep. She was much to awake. So, instead of drifting off, Malice got out of bed and began wandering. She wasn't afraid of getting lost. She was confident.

Soon, she heard voices. Voices she recognized. It was Stephen and Dioda and Blake, her new housemates from the feast. She smiled. They were up too! What a coincidence. Rounding a corner, their backs to her, she greeted them. "Hallo."

Dioda looked at Stephen and then at the egg. ''Well, if the egg dies my pet dies. Then I'll be doomed for a whole year again,'' she said, ignoring Blake. She looked at Malice and smiled at the girl. ''Come, I'll show you,'' Dioda said to them and walked through the hallway, untill she reached the entrance of the Chamber of Secrets. She opened it and then walked down the staircase. She stopped before a door with snakes and spoke Parseltongue and the door opened. She smiled as a toad tried to jump out but she catched it. She walked in, puts the toad in the box and laid the egg under the toad. There were still remains of the other, Salazar Slytherin's, Basilisk.

Dioda then thought back t James and Albus and narrowed her eyes. Wherever those boys were, they would soon help her getting her father back. She would do anything to get her father back. But first, she had to concentrate on the Basilisk. It would help her getting blood from the two boys.

Stephen didn't follow Dioda, he was curious but felt just a little bit uneasy and besides he wasn't going to leave Blake behind; that would simply be unfair.
The girls seemed to go to the girls bathroom any way, what business could Stephen have in there? deciding that this was all just another mothering game girls played Stephen went back towards Blake and yawned, he was quite tired but didn't want to go to sleep just yet.
"Hay Blake do have any idea what was all that about?, Maybe we should look for the Potters and tell them about it; I would not want to have Dioda doing a prank on me, it would probably be very scary."
Stephen took out his wand and tried to mimic Blake's spell, the desired outcome did not show itself and Stephen grunted in anger, he then faced Blake and grinned . "how did you make that spell work? It could help me sneak around and do pranks on people."

"Well it takes a bit of practice, you raise your wand to chest level like this." Blake said, he raised his wand with his elbow slightly bent. "Then make a circle or some sort of movement with your wand, Foucus on the energy from your body going to the wand then when you make the movement say your spell, and DING, your doing magic. The spell is Quietus." Blake said, he then puit his wand back into his uniform. "Now you try." Blake said, he crossed his arms and leaned against a wall.

Blake looked at the girls bathroom where Dioda had disappeared, he didn't like it, that's where the chamber of secrets was, he knew, he could speak Parseltongue, he had inherited iot from his Grandfather, he was taught more on his basic skills by his father, he had a pet snake at home, he was a python and he freely roamed the land they had and came in the house whenever, it helped Blake learn by talking to him, the called him Stripe.

Blake didn't like it one bit. "Hold on, stay here and practice." Blake said, he then followed the path of Dioda and went into the washroom, the chamber was open.

Blake ran in to see what Dioda was doing, putting the egg under a toad, she wanted a "Basilisk!" Blake yelled. Blake stared at Dioda, she wanted to kill his cousins. "Stupify!" he yelled, he pointed his wand at Dioda and a beam of light from his wand hit her, she began stumbling around. Blakle was so angry, he ran to the toad to get it off the egg but it was too late, the egg began to hatch.

"WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?" Blake yelled at her. "You want my cousin's dead!" Blake yelled at her. Blake was furious, his uncle Harry had told him to protect Albus and James and that's what he would do. Blake felt like killing her but then he would wind up in Azkaban, his mind was instinctual mind was making him though. Blake prepared his wand pointing it at her. "Avada, Keda..." Blake dropped his wand realizing what he was doing. Blake hastily picked it back up.

"Flipendo!" Blake yelled, it knocked her down and the egg fell out of her hand, it was hatching and growing rapidly it gave Blake enough time to run. Blake got up and he ran out of the chamber, out of the wash-room, past Stephen. "Basilisk!" he yelled out not caring if he got in trouble for being out of his room past curfew.

Stephen was really exited for this day; his first day of learning magic, something that was actually worth learning for a change!

He had prepared all the things he needed before hand so he would not need to do so in the morning. As Stephen walked down the stairs he remembered all the strange things that had happened yesterday, Stephen decided that it was probably a dare game or a tease as no one would really want to kill some one just like that would they? Saying you wanted to kill some one didn't mean anything ether; Grandpa said he would kill the bank manager 23 times plus the time he said he would half kill him but he never did more then puncher the banker's tires and even that only when he was pissed off and the opportunity presented itself.

Stephen had missed Blake by a few minutes but since he was 2nd year or something they would not be learning in the same class any way. Stephen on his way passed near the Gryffindor house portrait and saw James and Albus Potter exit from it, Stephen waved towards them and made a joking salute.

"Hello clan Potter! You better start running caz we are runnin late!, come with me Albus; I made a point of figuring out were our class is for today so there is no point in you wondering around, its Slytherin and Gryffindor for today anyway."

James began heading towards his Class, while holding Albus' arm in one hand, and led him towards his class. "I already know where Albus' classes are, but we all have to run! ALL classes start early today!"

James started running, and he was pretty fast. The Grand Staircase.....it was the quickest route.....and the way was just starting to move. James quickly pulled Albus onto it before it got too far, and then ran down the steps towards the classrooms.He then noted Albus' classroom being right around the corner, and sprinted to his, just barely making it.

Thats when he heard in an announcement. "Please be aware. There have been sightings of trolls in the area. Please stay alert...."

James walked into his class, which had just started. They were practicing defensive spells. James was then paired with Hester. His arch enemy, so to speak. He could already hear students betting how this would end up. James started with Flippendo, and Hester failed the deflect. Hester, in anger, returned the Flippendo. And this turned into a full blown battle between James and Hester. Offensive spells started flying around, and Asters could only sit and watch as they basically had a magical dual. Hester began throwing out more offensive spells, but James managed to deflect most with the spell they were supposed to learn, and then fire out more spells of his own.

He quickly jumped onto a table as Felkon, who hated James and the Potters just as much as Hester, joined in. James quickly jumped to another desk, then knocked over a chair. Considering it was 2 v 1, James was doing very well. James then managed to knock Hester into Felkon. Thats when Asters intervened. "Alright! Alright! Enough! James, excellent use of the defensive spells. Now, lets all just calm down and continue the class now!!"

James sat down with a smirk. He just won against 2 Slytherine at once.
