This particular branch of the Pendergast family is headed by Reuben Pendergast and his wife, Atalanta, and unless otherwise stated all members are traditional and socially minded. The family tree can be found here.
Mrs. EMMELINE "EMMA" _____ NÉE PENDERGAST is Reuben’s eldest, born in 1862. A Slytherin alumna, she married a man of her father’s choosing in 1881. Though a wild child in her younger year—illicitly playing quidditch for a season, being caught without a chaperone, even taking a lover in her fifth year though the public never got wind of that, thank heavens!—Emma now does her best to portray the image of a proper young lady and reputable wife, regardless of how she might feel on the inside or what she might do behind closed doors. She prefers her father to her mother, and has spend a great deal of time attempting to court his approval. The suggested PB is Keira Knightley. Taken by Mousie.
Her husband, ____, is also available, and his personality etc is entirely negotiable.
Miss WILHEMINA "MINNIE" PENDERGAST is Reuben’s younger daughter. Born in 1865, this is her final year at Hogwarts, where she belongs to any house. Minnie was always much better behaved than her sister, but also plainer in looks and has always resented her sister somewhat. She is more like her mother than her father, and widely read. So far she has no interest in marriage: her sister's loveless marriage is hardly the best example, and she is far more interested in her books and learning. Besides, she doesn't expect anybody will want to marry herThe suggested PB is Samantha Barks.Played by Lauren
Mr. WALTER "WALT" PENDERGAST is the first son born to Reuben, in 1867. A member of the Gryffindor house, his closest friend is a muggleborn—a fact harder to hide from his family with two siblings at school with him. The only one of Reuben’s children who could be considered genuinely progressive, he is also a large disappointment to his father, and consequently closer to his mother. They have a close relationship, and he is often full of questions about his liberal grandfather, whose book he eagerly devoured, much to his father's annoyance. The suggested PB is Dylan Minnette.
Mr. SAMUEL "SAM" PENDERGAST, born 1870, is the youngest of Reuben’s children and nearly the death of his mother - at thirty-one years and already fragile, she struggled through childbirth. Sorted into Slytherin, Sam has high hopes that he will one day see himself first as Minister of Magic, and later as Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot. His ambitions have made his father terribly proud, and he does not get along with his elder brother. The suggested PB is Daniel Huttlestone.

AMRITA ______ (NÉE GREENGRASS) | 1849 | SUGGESTED PB: Jennifer Lawrence | Amrita is Ambrose’s eldest sibling. She was born in Delhi, India between January and June of 1849. She has an eye for the exotic and loves expensive imports from countries like India, Japan, and China. She married well, to an upper class, pureblood male. The number of children she and her husband bore is up to the player, but I imagine they at least have had one. Amrita is a social and outgoing woman. I imagine she has many parties and events. She might be described as eccentric.
ATHANASIUS GREENGRASS | 1851 | SUGGESTED PB: Eion Bailey | Athanasius is Ambrose’s older brother and was born between January and June of 1851 in Delhi, India. He is, in Ambrose’s opinion, the undeserving heir to the Greengrass fortune. Athanasius is social and outgoing like Amrita, but he’s more of a cad. I imagine that he is married as well and he married his wife based on her beauty and dowry/fortune—nothing else. Since his marriage (and before that, I imagine), he has had several affairs. I request that his occupation be relatively insignificant (something that will not overshadow/outshine Ambrose’s position) or nonexistent.
If you are interested in taking on either of these characters, please send a PM to Gretchen Lestrange. Thank you very much! :)
The Westholmes are pureblood, upper-class family with a particularly complicated history. The patriarch, Donald, died in 1856, and the matriarch a month later. Her identity was assumed by the family governess, Janet Mills, who was actually responsible for her mistresses death, and became Celia Westholme. She took responsibility for the three children, and has retained her grip on the family using a series of memory charms ever since. More information can be found here. The Westholme family is in need of...
Mr. LAWRENCE WESTHOLME, the middle child and only son. Lawrence was born in 1851 and is currently 32 years old. Whilst at school abroad, Lawrence was a particularly skilled quidditch player and entertained notions of playing professionally. This desire was removed, however, by his mother by means of a memory charm. He remembers very little of his father, and nothing at all of his birth mother, and is instead certain in the belief that his real mother is indeed the woman masquerading as her. Despite his mother’s best efforts, he often feels like there is something missing from his life, as if pieces don’t quite add up. He is in possession of the family fortune, but as he lives with the rest of his family, it is unofficially in the hands of his mother, and will be as long as she is able to continue using memory charms on her children to retain control of them. However long this might be is up to you. His suggested PB is Tom Riley.
The Meliflua's are an upper class, pureblood family. The Meliflua's are known for being elitists as they have every right to be, what with their good breeding and all. I imagine that the family is all Slytherin and I'm pretty set on this. At current, Amalia is the only Meliflua.
A---- is the patriarch of the Meliflua family and is fifty-one years old, making him have been born in 1831. He was a Slytherin and most likely works in the Ministry. I don't imagine him being an overly affectionate man and as far as physical goes, he's probably colored lightly and on the short side of things. His relationship with Amalia isn't a good one at all. He sees her as odd and can scarcely believe she is his child.
----- is the matriarch of an unspecified family. She is forty-two which would make her birth year 1840. She was more than likely Slytherin and was raised upper class. Her marriage to A---- is most likely from an arrangement between her parents and her husbands. She is also most likely light colored and of a petite stature. She is the perfect idea of a house wife by Victorian standards. Her relationship to Amalia is one of disappointment though she keeps trying to bring Amalia around to propriety.
Almira is Amalia's eldest sister and the first child born to the Meliflua's. She is twenty-three, born in 1859. She entered an arranged marriage and in school was more than likely Slytherin. Whether she has children or not is up to the player. She is light colored and petite. In regards to Amalia, she doesn't like her at all. In her eyes Amalia is a disgrace, with her Quidditch playing and Gryffindor loyalties.
Arrah is the second daughter of Meliflua's at twenty-one years old, born in 1861. She was Slytherin and entered an arranged marriage just like her older sister. She boasts the Meliflua traits of light coloring and petite build. I imagine her relationship to Amalia is rather indifferent. I think she tries to make Amalia conform more to their family's ideals from time to time, but at the end of the day she doesn't have much of an opinion of Amalia. She may or may not have children.
Abraham is the youngest child and only son of the Meliflua family. Born in 1865, he is seventeen and a current Slytherin at Hogwarts. He too is perhaps a bit short in stature and light colored. His relationship with Amalia is also rather indifferent, though perhaps more friendly than Amalia and Arrah's. They bond over a mutual love of Quidditch but he still thinks she's improper. He is most likely betrothed to an upper class girl.
Keep in mind that Amalia is considered the black sheep of her family. She isn't at all what their idea of a proper young woman is, so her relationship with all of them is strained and all of them treat her like she's something to be ashamed of. Most of her family members I imagine are rather stern and uptight. I have a very specific idea of what they are like, so please talk to me before taking them! Also, names of her siblings and father are negotiable so long as they begin with the letter A.

Victor Harold Berrisilm ll
40. Hogsmeade. Pureblood.
Victor is a strong willed opportunist. He makes decisions on a whim and at times it is difficult to decipher if it is bravery or flooshiness. Victor is the oldest male out of six other siblings. Victor is 40 years old and if your play him it is entirely up to you if he is married and has children. Over all he is your character and yours alone. A few qualities that he would definitely have is pride, and overconfidence as his Father, Victor pretty much put his on a pedestal. Victor ll is Victor seniors pride and joy, and if you want a cocky heir to a fortune, than Victor ll is your man.
George Henry Barrisilm
38. Hogsmeade. Pureblood
George is the third born, second male. Pretty much he is a gateway into the Berrisilm family. As of right now he could do anything from ruining the family name, to running away and bringing honor upon return. It is completely up to you if you'd like him married and have spawn, as nothing is planned and nothing is set in stone. The Berrisilm family is an ever changing one and the cast of characters that take part in the complex happenings are ever changing, marilos actors if I do say so myself.

Bertram Uriah Greengrass
This is Bertram. He is the eldest child of Benilda and Ambrose Greengrass and was born in early 1876. This makes him seven years old. He is a pureblood, upper class child and should act accordingly. Of the three Greengrass children, he is the one closest to Ambrose but the family dynamic is fairly even regardless. As such, he tries very much to be like his father. He is a leader and naturally extroverted like his mother. He likes to tease his younger brother, Mordecai, but they are close still despite this. He likes to be in charge and is very curious and inventive. Much on him is up for debate to whoever should take him, though first names are not at all and should you change the middle name it must be run by Hymn and Anastasia. Suggested play-by is Rodion Badynter but that is open for debate.
Mordecai Leander Greengrass
This is Mordecai. He is the second child of Benilda and Ambrose Greengrass and was born in 1877. This makes him five or six years old. He is a pureblood, upper class child and should act accordingly. He is closer to Benilda and is something of a sensitive child. He is a seer though this is as of yet unknown. He suffers nightmares that are really visions from his Inner eye. Because of his sensitivity he is jumpy and easily frightened, which he will object to in the face of ridicule. He is more of a follower than leader and is generally quiet and mild-mannered. As with Bertram, much with him is up for debate but things must be approved by Hymn and Anastasia prior to being committed to. His suggested play-by is Denis Zharchinsky but this is up for debate.

I'm Scarlett and I play Persephone Rowle. I'm requesting her family right now. They all have either blonde or light brown hair, and their eye colors are blue or brown. There's only one character's play by who I don't want changed, and that's Mrs. Burke's. The rest are just suggestions. The names are very firm! If you have a serious problem with any of them we can discuss it. PM me on this account to talk about anything, and read this app please! Their mother is Diamond Norah Rowle (nee Turnbull) - a hufflepuff alumna - and father is Gilbert Jackson Rowle - a slytherin alumni -, thirty nine/forty and forty three/forty four, respectively. They were raised in a family with a pureblood supremacist father and a neutral mother, though all of them are expected to marry purebloods how they feel about those less than pure is, of course, up to the player.
Suggested Play By: Josefine Nielsen
Pandora Louise Crabbe (nee Rowle) is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Jackson Rowle. When she attended Hogwarts, she was a Slytherin. She is either twenty two (if born after the current date in 1860) or twenty three, if born before. She's been married to Trevarus Crabbe for four years and has given her husband at least one child that has survived. Her son is three years old and he is developmentally delayed. She's been very concerned about him, and so he consumes a lot of her attention. Pandora was never really very close to her family and so she only sees them probably once or twice a year; on special events and holiday dinners. Like her siblings, she is an upper class, pureblood woman. Pandora and Persephone are seven years apart so the most I can see, for interaction between the two, would be the occasional owl - a sisterly check up.
Suggested Play By: Charlie Mills
This is the second child, first son, and heir to most of the Rowle fortune. His name is Helios Edward Rowle and he is twenty/twenty one depending on his birth date (1862). His sisters got enough for their dowries (or will, in the case of Persephone) and his brothers will, of course, get some of the money upon their marriages. While at Hogwarts, he was a Slytherin. He's a golden boy type - the perfect son. He married a pureblood lady, Florence --- Rowle (nee Travers) two years ago. Together they have an 11 month old daughter. He loves his mother - a bit of a mama's boy, honestly - very much, and so when she asked him to take in his younger brother, Hermes, he agreed right away. It's pretty obvious that Diamond, their mother, is more fond of Hermes and it kills Helios. He lives in Hogsmeade and works at the Ministry of Magic. I can see him writing to his youngest sister, Persephone, and maybe inviting her for dinner over the summer a few times and writing to her while at Hogwarts, maybe visiting her at Hogsmeade.
Suggested Play By: John Todd
While Gilbert and Diamond are very happy with most of their children, Hermes Ronald Rowle is the exception. He is either nineteen or twenty depending on which month he was born in 1863. A few months ago, he was kicked out after a pretty violent fight with his father. Wands were drawn, and cruel words were spoken. He left that night - or was kicked out, depending on who you talk to. Hermes says he left while his father says he kicked him out. Of course, the public doesn't know Hermes left as a result of a fight. They believe he simply wanted to live in Hogsmeade, closer to everything. He and his sister-in-law, Florence, don't get along at all. They fight, a lot, mostly because Florence feels snubbed that she wasn't asked about her brother-in-law living with them. Hermes has no occupation, and he's described as a lay about by most people. He doesn't want to get married now and often says he won't get married for at least another decade. It's up to you if he has illegitimate children or past lovers. He's very intelligent, but he knows that his brother will take care of him for as long as his mother is alive, and perhaps even in her memory. If not, he knows his youngest siblings will take care of him. They're pretty impressionable. Persephone loves the little attention that Hermes gives her, but he doesn't really give a lot of it because he doesn't think about others too often - he's very self-centered, but he genuinely loves his family. His mother is his biggest supporter, but he's not as loving to her as his elder brother is. As you can guess, he was a Slytherin in school and is an upper class pureblood.
Suggested Play By: Katya Ryabinkina; Please, no deviations.
Seventeen (or eighteen) year old Phaedra Grace Burke (nee - Rowle) was born in 1865. She was blessed with the grace her middle name implies, and is very attractive beyond looks - there's something inside that attracts men to her. She is a genuinely a good person. She's been married for two years (married just after her brother was, by a month or two difference). Zebulan Burke, her husband, accidentally met her for the second time outside of school. She was a fourth year and he was nineteen. As the heir of the family, although he was young, he knew he wanted to marry her right away. Phaedra was taken out of school in her fourth year, so she's rather uneducated with a wand and magic. She was never really very good with magic, ever, think of Merope Gaunt. So she's practically a squib. If she hadn't been taken out of Hogwarts for her marriage she might very well have been held back for her lack of skill. But other than that; she's outgoing, sweet, and very sexy in a way she doesn't try to be. Her feelings are optional, as far as her husband is concerned, but I picture him as loving her a lot more than she loves him - if she loves him at all. She's probably pretty fond of him because he no doubt spoils her. She is pregnant right now with their first child, and he/she is due in September. She and Persephone are very close; they probably write one another twice a week, and they are best friends. She was a hufflepuff and is a an upper class, pureblood lady.
Suggested Play By: Stephan Haurholm
A quidditch player isn't smiled upon in the Rowle family, but Hector Wendell Rowle joined the Hufflepuff quidditch team. He's a pureblood, upper class boy in his fourth year of Hogwarts. He's fourteen right now, born in late May of 1868. I'm pickier about his birthday because he and Persephone are a year apart. He's a brilliant young man who is intelligent, a great quidditch player, and a good friend. He's a pureblood supremacist and almost feels about muggle borns as one would about germs that cause illness. He tries not to show it, though, but it's pretty obvious that all of his friends are of pureblood. Hector and his sister, Persephone, have become really close in the past two years. While they have their own friends and their own lives, they're both quite protective and caring of one another.
I'd like her parents to be brought on board, as well! Diamond Norah Rowle (nee Turnbull) is the sixth child of Felix Turnbull and the second child of Cecilia Turnbull (her maiden name is up to you!). Cecilia was his second wife, and so she has many half siblings; three half brothers, one half sister, and one full sister. You can see her family information here. She was probably decently spoiled, but also looked over as the very youngest if that makes sense. Diamond's obvious favorite child is Hermes, and she's always looking out for him. Helios and Hermes have issues as a result of their mother's favoritism. She does love all of her children, however, and was a very hands-on mother especially for the times. She's not an extreme blood supremacist, she's fine with muggles, muggle borns, and half bloods, but she would only allow her children to marry pure. Please use Malgosia Bela or someone similar as her play by! Her former house was Hufflepuff. She was born in 1843, and is currently thirty-nine/forty years old.
Gilbert Jackson Rowle is the youngest (born in 1837 at forty five/six years old) of three sisters (their names are works-in-progress but I'm trying to get them to have married into families on Charming, so, we can have more plottage!). He's the only son and, as such, the heir. He's a huge blood supremacist so he insists all of his children marry pure. He was once a Slytherin, and like his wife and children he is an upper class pureblood. He may have a few bastards out there, but that's completely up to you. He was very secretive of any behavior like that so it is unlikely that he would acknowledge any illegitimate children or have them involved with his legitimate children whatsoever. He has an issue with Hermes, the family lay about, and recently kicked him out of his house after years of putting up with his nonsense for love of his wife. He is genuinely fond of his wife, but the two were pushed into marriage by their parents. His play by is open but must be blonde or light brown haired.
Kennard MacFusty is a wizard born on May 1875. He is a half-blood and he has a fascination with swords, bows and crossbows. The suggested play-by is Aidan Alexander, though any other age-appropriate boy will suffice.
Lir MacFusty is a wizard born on October 1877. He is a half-blood. Lir is loud and demanding and his governess often has trouble putting him to sleep. The suggested play-by is Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, though any other age-appropriate boy will suffice.
Ilysa MacFusty is a wizard born on August 1878. She is a half-blood. Ilysa shares Birgit's love for music and the two have music lessons together. She also favours her mother's looks, so she either has red or fair hair. The suggested play-by is Mackenzie Brooke Smith.
Samuil Kaloyanov Krum is a 7 year old (born June 1875) wizard. He is a pureblood and his personality is open. The suggested play-by is Aidan Alexander, though any other age-appropriate brunette would suffice.
Teodor Kaloyanov Krum is a 6 year old (born February 1877) wizard. Matilda prefers to call him Theodore, so he has grown to only accept the nickname Theo or Teo. Suggested play by is Art Parkinson , though any other age-appropriate brunette would suffice.
Katherina would like to request the presence of...
Edric Selwyn is a 56-57 year old (born 1826) pureblood. He married Katherina on her nineteenth birthday and the two enjoy a good relationship. They are not in love, but they can be described as being two really good friends. His favourite sister's name is Michelle, though anything else about his family is up to the player who takes him up. The suggested play by is Jeremy Irons, though another age appropriate brunette could work.
Kimon Selwyn is a 20-21 year old (born 1862) pureblood. He's Edric and Katherina's only son. His personality is similar to that of his father's, though he has his mother's wit. He is a good diplomat and despite him being a blood purist he never treated half-bloods and muggleborns with too much cruelty. He is betrothed to his cousin Frida Lestrange. He most likely works in the Ministry. The suggested play by is Dominic Cooper, though another age appropriate brunette could work.
Michelle ______ née Selwyn is a 31 year old (born 1850) pureblood. Michelle is a blood purist and is similar to her other female relatives when it comes to her behaviour. When she was at school, she was sorted into Slytherin. She married a respectable pureblood in 1868. Michelle has five children, the oldest born in 1869 and the youngest in December 19, 1882. The suggested play by is Anna Friel, though another age appropriate brunette could work.
Nephele ______ née Selwyn is a 24 year old (born 1858) pureblood. Nephele is perhaps Katherina's favourite daughter, due to her rather quiet, insecure but genuinely nice personality. She might not be the strong daughter that she would have hoped for, but Katherina sees a quiet strenght hidden in the girl, despite the fact that nobody sees true potential in her. Nephele often asked Katherina to have her marriage arranged because she feared that she might end up an old maid due to her insecure and quiet nature, but Katherina refused to give up on her and helped her find an appropriate husband who she married in 1877. She has three children, two of them being twins. The suggested play by is Hayley Atwell, though another age appropriate brunette could work.
Mr. _____ Galatea is a 32 year old pureblood. He has no schooling. His occupation should be something fitting for the lower class. He has been married for 16 years. Merry deeply loves her dad but often thinks that he is responsible for the uncomfortable lifestyle their family has. He could be Primus Prewett's bastard though he wouldn't know it and that is up to the player who makes him. The suggested play-by is Wes Bentley.
Mrs. _____ Galatea is a 32 year old muggleborn. She met Mr. Galatea on the streets when she was fifteen and they had an affair that lasted a week. She found out that she was pregnant some months later and she and Mr. Galatea got married and tried to be the best parents they could. Whether she attended Hogwarts is up to you. Merry is often harsh to her mother because she feels that it is her fault for getting pregnant sixteen years ago. She loves her and wants to help her, though she rarely shows much affection to her. The suggested play-by is Asia Argento.
Grand Matron Traesa Fitzgerald is also available! At 55 (b. 1828), the muggle Irishwoman has lived with her daughter Rose Marguiles since 1880 following the death of her husband, a wizard whom she married at 19. She has two surviving children, Oliver Fitzgerald and Rose Marguiles, and eight grandchildren. She has a firey temper and complains constantly, but in a good-natured way. She is rather bitter about her daughter's decision to move from Ireland to Irvingly--Scotland, of all places! She is a very opinionated woman and not afraid to show it and often corrects the servants. She is very close to Rose. She is also slightly religious, having been raised Irish Catholic, but accepting of the magical world.
Melissa Leo or Dale Dickey are preferred for PB but open to other options. She should have red or grey/white hair.
Alexander Nott is a 39 year old (born 1844) upper class pureblood. He married his first cousin, Amarantha Nott in 1874 and the two have one daughter, Savannah Phoebe Nott. The couple have a large estate in Hogsmeade. Alexander is a loving and supportive husband. He is caring, honest and hard-working, but perhaps a little naive sometimes, and allows himself to be pushed around by his wife too often. He should have a good, respectable occupation for an upper class male but not yet be at the top of his career path. Hogwarts house is either Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff (his wife is a Slytherin). His suggested PB is James Marsden, but this can be substituted for another male in his late thirties with dark hair and blue eyes.
Savannah Phoebe Nott is a five year old (born April 1878) upper class pureblood, daughter of Alexander and Amarantha Nott. She is a natural free spirit and a dreamer. Everything else is up to the player. Her PB is open but should have dark hair and blue eyes.

NOTE: This family lives in the Hebrides, but has a house in Hogsmeade as well so the children can be played both places.
Peigi MacFusty is a halfblood born in 1874; she is upper class by wealth, but the MacFusty family has a reputation for wild ways that means that most of society tolerates them at best. She is the younger sister of Mrs. Ùna Grimaldi and Sorcha aka "Pip". She is ladylike because of her mother's constant attention to making sure her governesses and such train her as a lady. She is kept away from the family's "wildness" as much as possible. Her suggested face is Alisha Newton and any alternative should have dark hair.
Pàdraig MacFusty is a halfblood born in 1877; he is upper class by wealth, but the MacFusty family has a reputation for wild ways that means that most of society tolerates them at best. He is the younger brother of Mrs. Ùna Grimaldi and Sorcha aka "Pip". He is generally MacFusty-ish (large, athletic, and somewhat wild) but otherwise open. His suggested face is Rodion Badynter and any alternative should have dark hair.
Rory MacFusty is a halfblood born in 1879; he is upper class by wealth, but the MacFusty family has a reputation for wild ways that means that most of society tolerates them at best. He is the younger brother of Mrs. Ùna Grimaldi and Sorcha aka "Pip". He is generally MacFusty-ish (large, athletic, and somewhat wild) but otherwise open. His suggested face is Maxim Kazmin and any alternative should have dark hair.
Mrs. Drusilla ----- née Blishwick is Virgil's sister and an upper class pureblood born in 1851. She is the eldest of four daughters and cousin to Headmaster Black. Drusilla married in 1871 to a man that had been courting her since shortly after her debut; she has children, but the exact details are up to her player. She is reasonably proper but may have some rebellious traits so long as they cause no scandal and she was a virgin on her wedding night. Her preferred face Abi Fox; any alternative must have brown or black hair.
Miss Octavia Blishwick is Virgil's sister and an upper class pureblood born in 1862. She is the third of four daughters and cousin to Headmaster Black. She is most likely engaged or seriously courting, but may also be having trouble finding a husband. She is reasonably proper but may have some rebellious traits so long as they cause no scandal and she is a virgin. Her preferred face Chanel Celaya; any alternative must have brown or black hair.
Mr. Jimbo Blishwick is Virgil's father and is an upper class pureblood born in 1818. He is a JKR named canon and may have an upper level ministry position or be retired. He has been pressuring Virgil to marry for the last five years with increasing vigor as he is eager for grandchildren — or, more specifically, a Blishwick grandson. He should have been dark haired, although at his age he might have gone completely gray.
Mrs. Misapinoa Blishwick née Black is Virgil's mother and an upper class pureblood born in 1826. She is a JKR named canon and has canon-established family and death date. Her personality is largely open, although she must not be a blood traitor or have caused any sort of public scandal as she was not disowned from the Black family. She should look like a Black: dark (possibly graying or grayed) hair and "great good looks".

FAN XIANG LING
Fan Xiang Ling is the eldest of two children born to Anna and her husband Fan Wei Bo; as such he is half-English and half-Singaporean. He is a muggle born in 1856 into the middle class; he and his younger sister were raised in Singapore and did not know magic existed until Zhi Lin was invited to attend Singapura Akademi Sihir. He and Zhi-Zhi were always very close, and when she wanted to leave home to study wandmaking in early 1880 Xiang Ling went with her to London, where he attempted to pursue his true passion of art full time. They have been separated, except for letters, since January of 1882; however, I want Xiang Ling to move to Irvingly so that he can be close to his sister again. Xiang Ling's suggested face is Alexey Kim.

Notes: The Herpidon family are originally from Greece, therefore should have Greek (or Ancient Roman) middle names. They are upper class purebloods and proudly descended from Herpo the Foul. All family members have brown or back hair and are likely to be traditionally minded, with no public scandals. Currently played are Alexander Herpidobn and his wife, Lucretia Herpidon, and their sister-in-law Hera Herpidon.
Aeneas ____ Herpidon Alexander's father and an upper class Greek pureblood born in 1818. As he proudly proclaims, he is descended from Herpo the Foul. He has been working, since 1866, as the Greek liaison at the Ministry of Magic, but ailing health has forced him to step down. He is a staunch pureblood, and traditionally minded. He has a distant relationship with all of his children but favours Alexander. The suggested PB is Donald Sumpter but any alternative must have dark or greying/grey hair.
Thalia ____ Herpidon nee ____ is Alexander's mother and an upper class Greek pureblood born in 1829. She has no career: she is a wife and mother who does not question the role her gender has afforded her. Nonetheless she is a formidable matriarch and a force to be reckoned with in her own right, but will always defer to her husband. She is a staunch pureblood, and traditionally minded. Her relationship with her children is up to her player, but she is not overly maternal. The suggested PB is Isabelle Huppert or Fanny Ardant but any alternative must have dark or greying/grey hair.
Corinna ____ nee Herpidon is Alexander's eldest sister and an upper class Greek pureblood born in 1855. She has since married and has children, but the specifics are up to her player. She has a cordial relationship with her siblings, and prefers to keep out of the quarrelling regarding the will as best she can. She is quiet and independent - a dutiful wife and mother. She has no career. She is a staunch pureblood, and traditionally minded. The suggested PB is Rose Byrne but any alternative must have dark hair.
Demetrius ____ Herpidon is Alexander's younger brother and an upper class Greek pureblood born in 1858. He need not work due to the family's wealth, but he may have a career if the player wishes. Demetrius is the often overlooked sibling, and though it is entirely possible he is most suited to managing the family fortune, it is likely his father has not even considered him for contention. He does not necessarily dislike his brothers, but finds them often condescending and the question of the will has left their interactions antagonistic. Demetrius is a staunch pureblood, and traditionally minded. His suggested PB is Tom Hughes but any alternative must have dark hair.
Helene ____ Herpidon is Alexander's youngest sister and the last of the Herpidon siblings, an upper class Greek pureblood born in 1862. She is not yet married, but it is likely her parents are arranging a suitable match, possibly with the son of one of her father's colleagues. She is arguably the light of the family, a sweet and outgoing girl quite unlike her serious parents and siblings. She is a staunch pureblood, and traditionally minded. The suggested PB is Roxane Mesquida but any alternative must have dark hair.
