Appearance:Cassius has dark brown hair and blue eyes. He is 5'5" and doesn't seem likely to get much taller, despite the fact that he is more than an inch shorter than most of his male relatives. Cash is slight and weighs in at 118 pounds. He is right-handed, has very messy hair, and tends to bounce on the balls of his feet when he's excited.
History: Cassius was born the third and middle child to Lucius Lestrange and his wife. He is a generally pleasant child, although he does have a temper and is prone to occasionally throwing massive fits. His younger sister Cornelia is born when he is four, and half a year later when Cash displays his first bout of magic by accidentally levitating himself off the ground.
Cassius mostly masters reading and writing by eight, and can then be found spending a lot of his time in the library. His father seems to believe that Cash is reading about the dark arts: he's not. Cassius is reading epic novels, books on quidditch, and, most notably, mystery novels. He has no more than a very slight curiosity in the Dark Arts, and that's only because the rest of the family is interested in them.
When Cash is nine, his cousin Tiberius comes to live with them because his father - as Cassius so eloquently puts it to anyone who asks now - went crazy and killed a bunch of people. Tiberius is everything Cassius is not; emotionless, academic, etc. Cash doesn't like him and tries to keep him away from Valeria, when he can be bothered.
Cassius receives his Hogwarts letter on his eleventh birthday, and goes to Hogsmeade to buy his supplies. He purchases them along with a black cat he names Aelius. He is pretty much in a constant state of excitement for the next months, when he goes to Hogwarts.
Cassius is called up to the Sorting Hat and sits under it fully expecting to be put in Slytherin like his cousin and the majority of the family. The Sorting Hat has other ideas, though, and debates. Cash is fiercely loyal to his own, which is a Slytherin thing, but he's not particularly ambitious or cunning. He has a strong interest in deductions and after a minute the sorting hat sends him off to Ravenclaw.
Despite Slytherin being the best house in the eyes of most Lestranges, Cash is actually pretty fine with being a Ravenclaw. While he is now 98% certain that his father prefers Tiberius to him, he has been convinced of this for a while now anyways. Cash flourishes in astronomy, defense against the dark arts, and potions, and is just above average in most of his other classes. He receives a broomstick for his twelth birthday, although it remains at home until his second year.
In second year Cassius joins the Ravenclaw quidditch team as seeker, which fits his slight build and athletic temperament. Between quidditch practice, his studies, and reading mystery novels, Cash grows into a rivalry (perhaps only on his side) with Tiberius; and spends a tad more of his time trying to keep him away from Valeria.
In third year Cassius takes up arithmancy as his elective. He would have nabbed something else as well, but care of magical creatures sounds boring, divination sounds stupid, and he's fairly certain his father would have a stroke if he started taking Muggle Studies.
Fourth year passes by smoothly, and in the start of Cash's fifth year girls are banned from the quidditch teams. As Ravenclaw has no girls, this leaves them in an excellent position to win the quidditch cup this year.
Personality: Cash has very bad impulse control. He is bad at keeping still and worse at being bored. He likes mysteries and puzzles probably more than he should, particularly those of the murderous variety.
Cash is strongly dependent emotionally on those he considers his friends. He is also very bad at caring about people he doesn't like very much; he doesn't often learn names. He can be very spiteful about those he doesn't like.
Paranoid occasionally, particularly where his cousin Tiberius is concerned.
