S T Y L E
When not in his robes, Theo sticks to neutral comfy, airy clothing. He's an active individual and tight clothing only gets in the way. Theo prefers a good pair of jeans and soft sweaters, staying away from layers. He does value looking nice so his style complements his physical appearance normally. Theo's color palette when it comes to clothing is kept to rather neutral colors except for his house colors. His style could most accurately be described as "comfy" and "classic", but when he's in Qudditch season he's not opposed to wearing athletic outfits around.

Theodore is considered attractive by most of his classmates, and combined with his charm he is a perfect example of the "boy-next-door" look. He has a muscular physique from years of athletics and playing quidditch, and has never been uncomfortable in his own body. He has a few cuts and bruises from games but otherwise he is absent of any scars. His strong jawline makes him seem intimidating but his face softens around his brown eyes and kind smile.

Acoustic guitar is very soothing for him, and he loves to play and sing in his free time. While he loves his Scottish roots he has always preferred more traditional British foods than Scottish. He enjoys learning, and school itself although he may not be the top of the class. Theo excels at Defense Against the Dark Arts and Dueling, which he thoroughly enjoys to study. Every since Theo learned how to fly, he has been in love with flying and owns a Firebolt which he treats like his child. Sneaking out and flying just for the hell of it sometimes. It's not just the flying, per say but it's much more of an escape for him. Along with flying, he likes to play the game of Quidditch, and is one of Gryffindor's chasers. He also has a love for chocolate frogs and has been collecting the cards since he was young.

D I S L I K E S
He can't stand bullies, or the negative reputations and stereotypes of the Houses. Blood status makes him the most angry, especially the term 'Mudbloods'. Mainly because this hits home due to him being Muggle-Born. He despises homework, even though he can finish a lot of it relatively easily.

P E R S O N A L I T Y

Theodore is well known for his charming, sunny disposition. He is witty, charismatic, and outgoing. Theo tries his hardest to make sure underclassmen and students alike feel comfortable at Hogwarts, no matter how small or insignificant. The son of a two muggle's he grew up understanding that being different could be hard. He's an accepting and understanding individual, willing to listen to your problems if the need occurs. Theo is also surprisingly (well, not surprisingly) good at flirting. It takes some hype from his friends to get him to approach his interest, but he turns on the charm shockingly easy. Cheesy pickup lines tend to work in his favor and his smile can be deadly if used correctly.

A person like Theodore has a lot to be confident about, but a deep insecurity has always been a part of his life. He compares himself to other people and tries to change himself to fit what's expected of him, but does a damn good job at hiding it. He's not used to thinking of himself or putting himself first, which stems from the selflessness and courageousness of a true Gryffindor.

While he can be a bit of a softie and (teddy bear) sometimes there is no denying that Theodore belongs in House Gryffindor. He is a very brave individual and will face whatever consequences he has to face in order to save someone else. He doesn't like to define himself as a hero but just like to do what's right by others especially his friends and those close to him. He has an excellent sense of humor and he definitely doesn't hide it from anyone. He likes to smile and laugh along with make others smile and laugh with him. He is rather independent and confident with himself and his abilities. This largely comes from him being very easygoing and quite popular among his peers as everything comes sort of easy to him.

In all, Theodore cannot help but a little bit mischievous and a manipulative with certain words. He can make almost anyone do anything that he asks them to do due to his charming disposition. Sometimes he can't help it, it's almost a subconscious way of speaking, especially when you're likable. After being bit however, he is much more prone to anxiety, he's had a few attacks when it gets closer to the moon, and has shifted to become more secretive about his life with his friends. Even though Theo is almost always surrounded by others, he still feels lonely at Hogwarts and in general. The feeling of loneliness came upon him when he was bitten, he had to hide it from his best friends which made him feel disconnected. He tries his best not to have people worry too much about him and his well-being.

F A M I L Y
Thomas Walder. Forty-Six, Cop. As a muggle, Brendan was the less supportive parent about his children using magic, but didn't argue with sending them to Hogwarts. Due to the magic coming from his wife's side he wasn't used to the idea of it. His relationship with Theodore has always been a bit strange and awkward but it's his son so he'd do anything for him.

Holly Walder. Forty-Four, Teacher. Theodore has quite a positive relationship with his mother, and considers himself to be quite close to her (closer than his father). Growing up, Theo would always tell his mother everything and he would do anything for her. Holly was initially shocked that the magic had skipped both her daughters and fell upon Theo. Her sister was a muggle-born as well so she knew it ran in the family. She has always been supportive of Theo's magical endeavors and schooling.

Poppy Walder. Twenty-One, Student. As the oldest and muggle child in the household, Poppy is a ray of sunshine. She is a current law student at Penn State she is the poster child of the family. Theodore knows he can rely on her if he ever needs to talk or forget about the world for a while, due to her caring nature. Poppy used to be jealous of not having wizard abilities, but she knew it wasn't meant for her.

Sophie Walder. Nineteen, Student. Sophie was always the more brooding sibling, and as the middle child normally kept to herself. She's not entirely supportive of Theo's magical abilities and tends to avoid talking about it at all costs.

Thomas and Holly were both natives to Dundee, Scotland and met at the local community college. It didn't take long for the two to fall in love and settle down, Thomas becoming a local cop and Holly a teacher at the high school. Not long after they were married Holly gave birth to their first child, Poppy. Two years later came Sophie, and then finally two years after that came Theodore. Holly was shocked when Theo received his letter from Hogwarts, her sister was a witch but the magical gene had always been rather rare in her family. Not to mention, she had to explain it to her husband and daughters that magic existed. At first, it didn't roll over too well but they all finally learned to adjust and accept Theo's magical side.

In the summer of his third year at Hogwarts, Theo was changed forever both physically and mentally in a way no one expected. Over winter break, he took a family vacation to Yosemite with his family to stay in the national forest in some cabins. Unfortunately, on a particular dark and stormy night the family found themselves on the wrong side of the woods. A werewolf on a full moon. The situation quickly turned dark. As the wolf lunged for Poppy, it was all Theo could do to push his sister out of the way. Unfortunately, he wasn't fast enough to avoid taking the bite himself. He spent nearly the rest of the break at an American hospital recovering.

After the events of the summer of his third year, Theo wasn't the same boy anymore. His body was changing and became more sickly as the weeks went on until he had to take a leave of absence from the Quidditch team during at the beginning of the season on Madam Pomfrey's orders. At least with the extra time he was able to focus on his missed school work, considering the fact that he misses a few days of class every month.

He eventually grew to accept the sickness and began to feel more like himself, rejoining the team his fifth year. It was a blur of disaster, especially during the battle. He lost many of friends and a piece of his heart from that day. As he comes back for another year he can only hope that nothing goes wrong, and his secret is kept safe.

When Theo was bit, everything about his life changed. Upon the complete rising of the full moon, Theodore essentially becomes a fearsome and deadly near-wolf. This condition is caused by infection with lycanthropy, also known as werewolfry. On the night of a full moon, Pompfrey gives him Wolfsbane Potion, allowing him to keep his human mind during transformation. It's essential that he always takes the potion otherwise he would have no control over his own actions. A werewolf cannot choose whether or not to transform and will no longer remember who they are and would kill even their best friend given the opportunity once transformed. Despite this, he is able to recall everything he has experienced throughout his transformation upon reverting to his human form.

He has kept all of this a secret from his friends, but there is a definite change in his temperament. Around the full moon he becomes more agitated and jumpy. Only his immediate family, and a few choice staff members know about his condition.

The smell of fresh smoke. The rumbling of voices echoed. The clatter of metal trollies scraping across the ancient station's stone brick floor, as well as the thudding of countless footsteps of first years. The old train station that secretly held the platform known as Nine and Three courters was alive once again. First year students were mixed among the older students that were simply saying goodbye to their loved ones and got onto the train, as the young ones shed a few tears as they'd be leaving their wizarding parents or guardians for the first time.

Where were they off to? No other place than Hogwarts, the School Of Witch Craft and Wizardry. It was once the most popular wizarding school in the world, secretly tucked away in Scotland. Hidden away from Muggle knowledge, as well as the rest of the world, that was until the year of May 2nd, 1999. A tragic event that shook the world by storm, The Batte Of Hogwarts. The Dark Lord, whatever else one may want to call him, Lord Voldermort who was once called Tom Riddle, and his band of Death Eaters and followers attacked the school simply for the last Horcrux, as well as Pure Blood Supremacy and to end all blood ties that weren't prior. But there was one thing that stood in his way, Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived and all the students that gave their lives to help defend the old school, and each other.

But with years passed, the death of Voldemort and few of his underlings still hiding in the shadows, Hogwarts has slowly come back to its former glory. It has been eight years since the Battle Of Hogwarts happened, and the reopening of the school. A handful of old professors returned to the school, as well as a few others. This would be a hopeful year for the students, as some are going for their last year, or their first year at the famous school. Students young and old said their goodbyes and slowly boarded onto the train.

Among the students that boarded the train, was a rather well known blonde haired, female Slytherin. She had shown promise in the past few years not only in Quidditch, but as a spell caster and a future healer as she had shown great interest in healing spells. The young Witch silently boarded the train with few supplies as she had come alone, as she always had years prior, even her first year she came by herself, only to have been greeted by Professor Slughorn. He had helped her with her things, picking out her wand and pet, and her books. But that was years ago, and now she was by herself.

She stepped onto the train and walked silently to the back of the train, and sat in an empty coach by herself, as the voices of countless students sounded throughout the small train. She sat by the window on the side and put down her book bag and removed a small book from the bag, it was one of her long time favorites and read silently as she resumed to go into the world of ALice In Wonderland, cutting out the outside world entirely as she read.

Meanwhile on the platform outside, a small brown haired girl stood, gazing at the station that housed the old train she had been told about by the one that helped bring her here, none other than Rubeus Hagrid, the caretaker of magical creatures. He helped her find her wand at Olivander's, her pet which she chose a small, white ferret, and her books. He gave her goodbye as she would have to be on the train by herself, and that he'd see her when she arrived at the school. The young girl nervously gripped her small bag that was on her back, holding Lily closely to her body as she stepped onto the train.

She was accidentally slammed into the side of the train as a much larger student accidentally walked into her, "Sorry!" he yelled as he looked over his shoulder, which only caused her to give him an awkward smile and in almost a whisper spoke, "It's okay...M-My bad." she stuttered and continued walked down the aisle of the train, trying to find any spaces where she could sit. All had been full that she saw, and slowly made her way to the back of the train, where an almost entirely empty coach was open, as a blonde girl was sitting in one of the spots, reading a book.

The young girl smiled as she nervously spoke to the woman sitting in the seat, "I-is it okay if I take a seat? A-all the others are full..." she said with a timid voice.

The blonde woman looked up and smiled when she saw the young girl ask if it was alright to sit with her, "Of course, sit wherever you want." she said with a small nod, glancing at the girl, then back at the book.

The young girl smiled, and trolled into the room, and sat down on the opposite side of the room, placing her bag down and held Lily close to her, in her lap. "My name's Violet. Violet Marsden..A-and you?" she asked with a small tinge of nervousness in her voice, while she was outgoing, she couldn't help but be filled with immense anxiety that filled her.

The older girl gave a brief smile and nodded, putting her book in her lap, "It's nice to meet you, Violet. I'm Jessie Carter. Nervous? As I can tell it's your first year. You'll be fine, I'm sure of it." she gave her a gentle nod.

Violet gave her a cheery smile as the woman that introduced herself seemed nice enough, "Th-thank you, Miss Carter. I've just never been out of London before, never mind to a different country." she said with a nervous chuckle.

Jessie gave the girl a small chuckle, which was almost entirely undetectable, "Jessie will do just fine. But as I said, Hogwarts will be your new home, and you'll be fine. Nothing has happened aside from what happened on my first year. Besides, if anything does, you'll have plenty of stong Witches and Wizards by your side." she gave a small grin.

Violet's eyes widened at the mention of a terrible event, "Y-you mean you were there? At the Battle? I only heard small parts of it..I'm sorry about that.." she said with a tone of sadness.

Jessie shook her head, "H-how about we don't talk about that, huh? Everything will be fine. You'll be sorted into a House and everything will be just peachy, alright?" she said to the small girl, who only nodded and as they waited for the rest of the passengers to board they made small talk for a few more moments.

"Darling, don't forget to send us owls every once in a while, and for the love of god don't forget your wolfsbane alright?" Holly Walder scrambled to help her son with his large bag of luggage and grumpy owl onto the platform past the students saying their last goodbyes and itching to get a good seat on the train. Theodore's face flushed and he clutched his mother's arm at the mention of the wolfsbane. "Mom! Please, I told you not to talk about it in public. You know how everyone feels about - " His glance fell towards the ground and it was apparent this was his least favorite subject to discuss. His mother sighed and placed a gentle hand on his cheek giving him a motherly smile, "Theo, honey, nothing can ever change the content of your heart, don't forget that". Theodore sighed, it was the same thing over and over again 'you're still the same person you were' bullshit that his mother fed him. He couldn't blame her, she was obviously just trying to make him feel better but no one truly understood what he was going through. It had made the last few years rather tough and strained within the Walder household. He managed to return her smile although it was rather forced, "Thanks mom, I better get going, you know". "Of course! Of course, I bet you're eager to see all your pals again. Take care dear, oh I'll miss you!" Holly brought her son in for a rather strong hug nearly squeezing the life out of him. She pulled away still keeping him in her arms, "I love you, and if you need anything please owl!" Theo chuckled grabbing his luggage, "Mom I know, I'll be fine okay? I love you too." Holly clasped a hand over her mouth and shooed him away with her hand, "alright, now get out of here before I start to cry!" Theodore rolled his eyes with a small chuckle and grabbed his luggage waving one last goodbye to his mother before walking to the train.
-
The Hogwarts Express was rather full, and with Dimitri's cage in hand he walked down the small isle of the train trying to find the first person he knew. Thankfully it was Ollie. Theodore always had a soft spot for the Ravenclaw, being that they were both Muggle-Born he had always felt a bit protective over him. He peered in through the door of the compartment a smiled softly, "Is this seat taken?" He said gesturing towards the obvious open seat across from Ollie in the compartment.

Sterling like some, walked the platform by himself, his Aunt would always drop him off at the station but never would go inside. He never asked her why, but had always been curious for the reasoning. Sterling had been living with his Aunt Lucy ever since the battle, and found peace within her company. She reminded him a lot of his mother and that was comforting in his own way. While their relationship was awkward starting off, she came to care for him deeply and for once Sterling wasn't afraid to live in his own home anymore. Most of the kids alone at the platform, like him, were living examples of the tragedies of the Battle of Hogwarts. It was a rather morbid thought to think of, but nonetheless true. He hadn't seen his father in almost 3 years. Binx, his loyal cat-companion, brought him back to the present as she weaved through his legs beneath him purring. "Alright, alright. To the train it is." He smiled slightly at Binx as she peered up at him with her large green eyes.
-
Sterling was used to sitting on the train by himself. As the son of a death eater, it was rather hard to make friends, let alone keep them. He never minded the solitude, it gave him apt time to think and study. Sterling thankfully found an empty compartment on the train, and pulled a potions book out of his bag and began to read. Binx jumped up on the seat and curled into his lap, nearly vibrating his whole body with her constant purring. It was rather comforting in a way.

Time had passed by slowly as the other students finally said their goodbyes to their loved ones and guardians, and filed onto the train and took their seats. For the most part, Jessie was content with being in an almost empty compartment aside from the new girl, but a part of her was rather disappointed and felt a bit dejected that none of her friends from past years had come to look for her, maybe they would later. But for now she cared about getting to the school, this year was going to be good, she could tell.

As time passed, Jessie and the younger girl made conversation and small talk every now and then, and eventually, they arrived to the old school. When the train had come to a complete stop the students began to exit the train, taking whatever they brought with them. Meanwhile, Jessie had only the small book bag with her as she usually left her things at the school in her dormitory, as her family practically forbid her to take anything from school with her, aside from her cat and owl, and a few other small things that could fit in the bag. Jessie sighed and stood up, as Fenrir jumped off of the seat next to her and onto the floor and followed her out the door.

Eventually, she was lost among the crowd of students and slowly the crowd made their way into the castle, and took their seats in their respective spots depending on what houses they had been sorted into years ago, while the first year students remained standing and awaited being sorted into whatever house they would be put into for the remainder of their time at the school in the following years to come.

Jessie took her seat where the rest of the members of her house were, seeing some familiar faces among the Slytherin house, as well as some in Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and of course...Gryffindor. Patiently and silently she waited as the Headmistress stood up from where she was sitting at the center of the long table at the front and center of the Great Hall.

"Welcome, to new and old students. To those who are new, and to those that may be coming here for your final year, may the Sorting Ceramony begin." she spoke with viger and nastalgia, as she always loved seeing who would be sorted into what house.

Meanwhile, for the young girl that sat with Jessie, time went by even slower for her. Anxiety rang high, and she couldn't help but have a large an slowly ever growing pit in her stomach as the train was finally filled with all the students, and the train began to be ready for departure. No turning back now, huh..?, she thought to herself as she held her small ferret close to her body as the train made its way to the school.

Thankfully, the girl she had been traveling with so far had been kind enough to her, and made her feel at slight more ease as they made small talk all the way there. From what their life was like outside school, allbeit the older girl was more reserved for what she said, to the life they'd be living at school, to how magic worked at the school, etc. Finally the train had made its way into the station, and slowly stopped, and eventually, the students began to disperse.

In the past, first years would be separated from the older students and would arrive at the school on small row boats, but with the events that had happened years ago, they couldn't risk something happening again and had since combined the means of transportation for the younger and older students. Violet watched as Jessie stood up and grabbed her things and left the small couch, leaving Violet alone, who only clambered her things together and quickly tried to follow Jessie. But she was lost amongst the crowd and was pushed back as she saw Jessie disappear into the crowd of older students.

Eventually, the large crowd had made its way to the castle, and eventually up to the long stairs cases and pathways, and eventually the long halls that lead into The Great Hall, where the Sorting Ceremony would be held. Violet could feel a tightening in her chest, as well as her palms beginning to sweat as she knew what was going to take place.

Soon, the older students took their seats where Violet guessed they had been sorted into, the four well-known houses. She wondered what house she would be put into, and what kind of friends she would make along the way, only time would soon tell. As she was lost in her thoughts, she was taken out of them as Violet heard her name be called from the crowd.

"Violet Marsden, please step forward!" Headmistress McGonagall exclaimed as she looked at the small group of remaining students. She had taken into account that this year had been the smallest group of first years in the past recent times. Odd happening to be sure, she thought to herself.

The young girl blinked and slowly felt her feet move forwards in the direction of the hat that who she assumed was the Headmistress she had been told about. Violet nervously moved forward until she was at the small, wooden seat that was before her, she took a deep breath and turned around, sitting down on the small wooden fixture beneath her. Violet closed her eyes as she felt a slight pressure on her head as the old leather hat was placed.

"Hhmm..." the article of what would be clothing began to mumble under its breath. "What do we have here...A Marsden...A bloodline I haven't had the pleasure of in some time. Tell me, Violet, what do you treasure most?" it questioned the young girl as it sat upon her head.

Violet's eyes widened as the hat spoke to her, and thought to herself. What did she treasure most? By that, did it mean what virtue did she treasure most? Bravery? Ambition? Cleverness? No...While she did treasure those, they weren't her strongest.

The hat made a small nod of what would be its head, if it had one. "I see. So...The House that best suits you is..."

..

"Hufflepuff!" the old hat exclaimed after a moment of silence.

Violet's eyes opened as the hat spoke, and felt her heartbeat speed up a bit as it was revealed what house she would be put into.

The hat was lifted off of her head by the Headmistress who gave her a kind smile and nod of her head as she spoke, "Hufflepuff it is, Miss Marsden." she gave the young girl a smile once more as she waved her on, and began to read the rest of the few names that were on the parchment paper.

Violet gathered her thoughts and nodded as she stood up, and walked to the crowd of Hufflepuffs that gladly welcomed the new addition to their House. Violet couldn't help but smile as the older and fellow younger students welcomed her with open arms and cheer and hugs.

As they all settled down they watched as the rest of the first years were sorted. Some more went to Hufflepuff, then to Ravenclaw, and the most were then evenly split into Gryffindor and Slytherin. And after all was said and done with the Sorting Ceremony, the Great Feast began as food was brought out and placed infront of the students. Who all began to dig in and chat amongst their fellow house members and friends.
