None – though the family possesses a barn owl they use for messages. Background:
Unlike many of the ancient Pureblood families, while the Sayre Clan cleaved strongly to the old traditions and practices, they were much less concerned with the purity of blood. Their family had survived countless brushes with complete and total destruction; to the point that they’d come to truly believe that there was a higher power looking out for them. The line came to believe in the sentience of Magic itself, and thus couldn’t come to be fussed over the training and welcoming of people that had been deemed worthy of its use.
Over the centuries, their family came to worship magic itself, and prided themselves on their study and support of magical knowledge and culture. Unfortunately, as more and more of the muggle world bled through the barrier, this brought them more and more in line with the bigots that they normally would have been repulsed by. Over time, they began to fall in line with many of the other families and this is the conflicted history that Brendin was born into.
Brendin Sayre was born in the family home in Glandore, Ireland. His parents were well to do, though not nearly as wealthy or influential as they had been in times past. Like many of their peers, their fortune had been bled away by the Ministry and their occasional hardline stances against the Purebloods. They were close-knit and always there for each other. He was raised in the care of his loving mother as his father worked as a Liaison to Gringott’s.
When he arrived at Hogwarts, he basically faded into the background with most of the other kids. There was always so much to learn, and so much to do. He would have been content with that – passing through school and moving out into the world to join his father in working with Gringott’s. Likely that is exactly what he would have done if it hadn’t been for the Centaurs attack. There were concerned rumblings in the aftermath that even reached to the goblins and his father’s concern was noted by Brendin.
Things were changing, and he decided that he couldn’t just sit back and do nothing. He was going to have to step up and hope that his skills would be of use.
