Appearance:
Lysander is a fairly attractive youth, generally however it is thought that Lorcan wears it better. Despite looking completely identical when side by side people generally agree that Lorcan somehow looks better. Lysander stands at 5'11 and sports a pair of vibrant blue eyes. His normally unkempt dark brown hair is kept nice and short.

Patronus
Rabbit

Boggart
"I freeze up every time I see it. He's so reckless sometimes, what if it actually happens one day?
His boggart is a vision of his parents solemnly standing over a photo of Lorcan. His mother is always crying and though his father is silent he looks truly devastated.

Personality
Kind||Friendly||Cautious||Selfless||Loyal
Lysander is quite typically a reserved, and shy individual who prefers staying in the background of most things where its safe. Despite his more reserved nature Lysander is incredibly friendly just like most Hufflepuffs. Though he may not be the first one to approach someone he is always willing to talk to others and is quite outgoing once people get to know him a bit. Lysander is every bit hardworking as any other Hufflepuff, he always tries his best, and once he sets his mind to something it is unlikely he will stop until he succeeds. Lysander is also very kind and caring towards others even towards complete strangers, he's always willing to lend a helping hand, and an eager ear to anyone in need. This especially applies to his friends, and family who he is prepared to die for if need be. This eagerness to help others however has come back to bite him on multiple occasions however as people tend to take advantage of his overly kind nature. This has lead to him becoming something of a doormat, always putting the needs of others above himself which often cause him to neglect his own needs. This tendency to put others above himself is due to large amounts of self doubt. For years he has felt as if he was in his brother's shadow, and has come to doubt he own abilities and worth. On his worse days he can appear to be nothing but a nervous wreck, always stressing over things even if they aren't necessarily that big a deal, when ever he gets like this he often needs his brother to snap him out of it.

History:
Ever since Lysander was young he had been something of a reserved wizard. He's always had difficulty making friends, despite the best efforts of his brother, and mother who often tried to get him to come out of his shell. Despite this he has always had his brother, and for as long as they can remember they have been by each others side, each one looking after the other. While Lorcan would always be at the ready to defend Lysander from anyone or thing that would bother him, Lysander has always been there to keep the impulsive Lorcan out of trouble.

When they finally received their letter to Hogwarts Lysander was as usual nervous, about leaving home. However a quick talk from his mother Luna, and an assertion that he'd be with his brother put him at ease. He was less at ease when it came to the sorting. As Lorcan was appropriately placed in the Gryffindor Lysander was certain that he would be seperated from his brother. A fear which became a reality as the hat was soon placed upon his head. The hat was torn between placing Lysander in Ravenclaw with other intellectuals or in Hufflepuff with the kind, and hardworking souls. His kindness and loyalty won out over his keen intellect however as the hat decided he was best placed in Hufflepuff.

It was an adjustment for the young Lysander, being placed in a different house than Lorcan. At first he was quite disappointed to be stuck in Hufflepuff, as like so many others he had assumed the Hufflepuff house to be nothing more than the dumping ground for less than worthwhile wizards and witches.Something only made worse by Lorcan's playful teasing. However he adapted fairly quickly. It seemed being placed in Hufflepuff was exactly the thing he needed to come out of his shell. Being placed in a house with so many friendly individuals, he had no shortage of friends, and was thus no longer dependent on Lorcan for social interaction. Needless to say it didn't take him long to become a proud Hufflepuff. Despite being placed in different houses however they have still made sure in all their time at Hogwarts to never forget about each other. As such they can still usually be found together, and seeing the two apart for much more than a day is a rare occurrence.

So begins...

It was early. Not early enough for Lysander who walked with an eager grin towards the platform. Too early for Lorcan walking beside his brother trying to stifle a yawn. Grimsby perched himself on Lorcans shoulder meowing here and there seemingly as tired as his master. Zeus simply hooted happily in his cage.

Lorc tossed a smirk his brothers way "Ly remind me again why we had to get up so early. I mean you rushed out like we didn't have a few minutes to spare." Ly could only roll his eyes.

"Well it is our first year getting on the train without mum and dad, them being on their zoology trip and all. The earlier the better. Besides I don't want to be late and get separated like last year!" Lysander tossed an accusing glare at his brother to which Lorc responded with a sigh, ."Ugh I can't believe you're bringing that up little brother! I said I was sorry and that we were never to speak of that train ride again!" Lysander of course said nothing, only continuing onward to the platform. Upon reaching the pillar they discretly walked in and saw a rather large number of people.

Lorcan sneered at his brother "Guess we didn't leave early enough after all! Look at all these peopel Ly." Stifling a sigh, and desperately not wanting to make the journey to Hogwarts alone he grabbed Lorcan by the wrist and started walking toward the train."Come on Lorc. If we hurry we can probably snag a compartment together." Lorcan merely rolled his eyes but refused to say anything. As far as he was concerned this was ridicolous. They didn't need to ride to school together every year, which of course was why Lorcan had taken steps last year to ride with some other friends. Of course Lysander the pile of nerves he was did not take the separation well and so Lorc decided traveling together ws best for now on.

Once they boarded the train they began looking for a suitable compartment. Well Lorcan was, Lysander didn't care where or who they sat with so long as he was with his brother. As such he followed Lorc's lead. He was keeping an eye out for any compartments with his friends, or people that were fun to mess with. He spied a few likely candidates, There were the Potters of course Lilly and James, they got along and Lilly was fun to mes with. He saw Teddy and his "almost surely someday wife."There romance was sweet and he could tolerate it on some days but not today. He knew there was likely a familer group of slytherins sitting somewhere in the back. He checked them off his mental list almost immediately. AS he was walking past compartments trying to find a decent one he walked by a compartment with only a single occupant. The other Slytherin Weasly Lucy, they've never spoken much and as fun company Louis could occasionally be he was also highly annoying and blood boiling. Perhaps this one would make for better company? He realized there was no harm in it as he approached Lucy's compartment with a charming smile, dragging his brother beside him, and walked in. "Hellooo there Lucy. These seats taken?" Lysander walked in after giving a small and shy wave."Oh. Hi Lucy."

Scamander Brothers | Lucy Weasley




Lost in her people watching, it took a moment for Lucy to realize (with some disdain) that someone was talking to her. She corrected her expression from that of utter boredom to an amiable smile as she shifted in her seat to look at whomever had chosen to take up space in her compartment. To her surprise, and p l e a s u r e it was the wildly attractive Scamander brothers. One, Lorcan she recalled, gave her a smile that for a moment she couldn't help but genuinely smile back and asked if they could join her. The other gave her a shy wave and greeting that almost made her giggle. She was about to say she would welcome a little company on the long train ride when Quinnly popped her head out from under the seat across from her and ran up to the two. She did a circle around them, sniffing and pawing before she settled her attention on Lorcan. She stuck her head between his ankles and gave a 'pet me' yip. Lucy fin ally let out a tinkling laugh like that of silver bells, before nodding.

"Well since Quinnly has taken a liking to you I don't see why not" Lucy said smoothly as she inclined her head to the seat across from hers indicating them to join her.

Lorcan watched Lucy carefully as she turned to greet them keeping a close eye on her body language. A skill Lorcan found to be quite important when dealing with people but especially so when talking to a fellow Slytherin. Finding her smile to be genuine he gave a smile of his own with a pleasant nod. Lorcan looked at the fox with a chuckle Turing into a full blown laugh at the sound of Grimsby’s jealous meow. Lysander merely stood there rolling his eyes at his brother, and soon they both took a seat across from Lucy. The twins watched as Grimsby jumped onto Lucy's lap cuddling up to her and giving Lorcan a jealous glare. "looks like you upset Grimsby Lorc!"

Lorc tossed a glare first to his brother than to the feline. "stupid cat. Looks like he's taken a shine to you though." Lorc sighed and glared at the feline for a few seconds while Lysander rolled his eyes and looked at Lucy. They knew each other of course their families being as close as they were the twins managed to be on good terms with a number of the Weasley children, though they never had much interaction with Lucy. Somewhat awkwardly he spoke "so Lucy are you looking forward to another year at Hogwarts?" He looked away as he spoke slightly nervous in his attempt to break the ice.

As the midnight colored fur ball slinked into her lap she smiled and ran a hand down his back. He stretched out and let out a soft rumble like purr. She scratched behind his ears and cooed at him. She felt her cheeks flame as she realized she was letting herself be open.

"What a sweet heart..." She murmured as she brushed a strand of her fiery red hair out of her face as she examined the two boys sitting across from her. She crossed her legs and continued to lavish attention to the cat while picking the differences between the two. Lorcan was charming, & striking while Lysander seemed to be sweet, and handsome.

"Actually, yes. I am particularly excited for Magical Creatures with Professor Hagrid. I have always been fascinated with his class." Lucy said shyly as she tried not to get too excited about her passion with animals.

Lorcan sat there watching Lucy examining her surely as she was them. It payed to know the tendencies of one's house sometimes. She seemed genuine but there was an unmistakable hint of preparedness and grace in her actions. Lysander was surprisingly at ease here talking to someone whom he had traded perhaps all of two words before.

As Lucy spoke of her excitement for Care of Magical Creatures Lysander's face lit up into a smile, as did Lorcan's though he was of course feigning his interest. Despite the family being filled with magizoologists of varying amounts of fame the beasts never did much to catch Lorcan's interest, Lysander however was positively filled with delight though he did not say anything, despite recognizing a similar passion for animals within Lucy. Knowing he ill likely keep silent Lorcan through an arm around his brother and a charming smile at Lucy. "Ah interested in fantastic beasts huh? You and my brother have a lot to talk about then. He's a typical Scamander really. Me I'm a bit more unique.

Lucy tilted her head, her dark eyes focusing on Lorcan, and arched a delicate brow in his direction with a smirk that could have been taken as a challenge.

"And what, may I ask does it take to catch your interest?" She asked as her fox jumped up on her lap and snuggled with the cat. She petted each of them individually as she watched for a reaction. She liked people watching, it had been one of her favorite pass-times since she was little.

Lorcan met Lucy's smirk with a smirk of his own all while Lysander let his head rest in his hands like he knows what is going to happen next. Zeus was hooting from in his cage with anticipation."Now you've done it."

With a charming smile and a disarming voice, he looked her square in the eye and began to speak."I'm really glad you asked me that Lucy! First of all, the only thing I really need to catch my interest is an attractive young woman like yourself. But I also love moon lit walks by the beach, laying waste to Gryffindor and the Quidditch pitch, and causing a bit of harmless mischief every now and again."

Lorcan's smirk blew Lucy away though she didn't let it show. No wonder the girls swooned at him. Made sense now. She however could not stop the tale tale rush of blood to her cheeks at his complement. He thought she was a t t r a c t i v e. Despite her Slytherin traits she could not stop her traitorous Weasley characteristics.

She shrugged off the heating of her cheeks and turned her attention to Lysander who seemed to have shut down. She smiled at him and was about to ask if he was alright but was interrupted by a growl. She glanced down just in time to catch a tooth on her index finger.

"Ouch, Quinnly you brat. I'm going to turn you into a scarf." She said in a teasing tone as she scratched the fox under her chin with the finger that wasn't bleeding. She searched through her bag with her other hand for a band-aid.

"She gets jealous..." Lucy explained with a grin.

Lorcan couldn't help but notice the red rush to her cheeks at his words, he mentally gave himself a pat on the back for a job well done. Lorcan looked at his brother with a confidant smile, which Lysander returned with a bemused, if somewhat exasperated smirk. It was obvious to Lysander that Lorcan was the much more confidant twin, and not wanting to ruin their moment elected to stay quiet, though she did return Lucy's smile.

Lysander was about to speak up, and try to make conversation until he jumped slightly her finger going red at a jealous nip. "Aw you alright? She's not the only one that gets jealous though." He said with a slight chuckle gesturing to Grimsby who was still greedily cuddling up to Lucy casting a glare at her master.

As Lorcan dug through his pockets certain he had a band aid somewhere Lorcan threw an arm around his brother. "Oh don't be jealous brother dear. Lucy's no threat to our brotherly love." He spoke with a smirk as his brother simply rolled his eyes holding out a band aid to Lucy."Here you go. I always keep a band aid or two on hand. Never know when you'll need one. Especially when you live with a jealous cat and exotic animal lovers."

Lucy put on a fake pout at Lorcan's comment about her being no threat to their brotherly love.

"Challenge accepted" she said jokingly as she grinned at their hug.

She accepted the band aid graciously with a slight nod, though she couldn't seem to fully take her attention from Lorcan. She placed the band aid on her finger and grinned at the two.

"Want to kiss it better?" she asked teasingly as she held out her delicate hand in Lorcan's direction.

Lorcan looked at Lucy as she stuck out her wounded finger, asking for a kiss to make it better. He looked at her and grinned. Taking her hand in his like a gentleman, and then letting go.

"I could do that. But it's more fun to make you wait for something so intimate don't you think?" Lysander merely watched on sharing an odd glance with his owl.

Lucy grinned at him and nodded.

"Well, I guess I have something else to look forward to this year" She said with a small smile as she ran a hand thought her hair and turned her attention back to the passing surroundings.

Yes I n d e e d, she had something new to look forward to this year.

The Scamander Twins


AS the train stopped the twins or at least one of them was far to excited to make their way into the castle. Lorcan quickly made his way off the train, practically sprinting, while Lysander was left to gather the bags his elder brother oh so unintentionally forgot. Once off the train Lysander handed the bags back to his brother and the twins each made their way to the carriages. As they walked to the Great Hall they walked slightly slower than the others. A habit perhaps to draw out their time together, the twins even Lorcan knew of their strong attachment to one another, to Lysander at least splitting up for the sorting was the perhaps most difficult part of the new school year.

They lingered slightly at the door. Lorcan gave his brother a knowing look and an all too familiar smirk. "Well brother dear it looks like this is it. This is where we part ways. It was nice knowing you Ly." Lysander simply smiled. Lorcan sounded sincere but then again there was no one that knew the Slytherin boy better than Lysander."Oh don't be ridiculous. I'll see you tomorrow."

Lorcan made a genuine pout and turned from his brother. "Fine be that way! It sounds like you would rather never see me again." Lysander turned away wearing his own pout seemingly in agreement. Though within seconds they turned to each other laughing and smiling. They pulled each other into a small hug, and waved good bye, each one walking to their respective tables.

Lysander quickly made his way to the table and took his place among the other Hufflepuffs. Lysander sat next to his friends and after a few moments to ease into the conversations began chatting away.

As Lorcan walked to the Slytherin table he smiled and waved at all the right people, and plainly turned away from all the wrong ones. He took a seat next to a few friends, across the table from Louis, Scorious, and Albus just in case they decided to make themselves pleasant company. He off course didn't bother with an actual greeting and only sent a small but genuinely friendly smile their way

Once the excitement of speaking to the twins passed, the compartment fell into a companionable silence which Lucy had no problem with. She watched the scenery pass with a sense of peace. Lucy's eyes drifted shut as she was lulled by the movement of the train. She smiled in a dreamy fashion as both the feline and her fox purred.

When the train stopped, Lucy woke with a start. She hadn’t realized she had fallen asleep. As she it was only moments before the twins vacated as if it were on fire. Lucy took her time collecting her things and re-loading Quinnly into her robes before heading off the train. The Thestral’s pulling the carriages fascinated Lucy, so much so that during the ride she took the opportunity to sketch one out. Lucy found herself disappointed when the ride came to an end as she did not feel her sketch was complete, however she knew she would get other opportunities to study the beautiful creatures.

There was no one she was truly eager to see, so there was no reason to rush. Once inside she followed the tell-tale silence and occasional snickers that where her fellow housemates. She greeted all her housemates with her typical half assed smirk and a tilt of her head.

Once in the great hall Lucy took a seat across from Scorpius and his group. She acknowledged them with a look boredom and a quirk of a delicate brow before she pulled out The Great Gatsby and immersed herself within it.
