There weren’t words to describe how glad Lysander was that he’d completed his apparition licensing; he’d always hated traveling side-along and it was a welcome relief to be able to travel on his own. With a soft smile on his face, he disappeared from his home and reappeared with a short, sharp crack at the Montague-Farnese home, alongside his father. The pair quickly made their way to the front door where they were promptly greeted. Directions were given and while the adults retreated to another room to discuss their plans, Lysander made his way upstairs to find Penny.

The end of their year was remarkably peaceful and uneventful after the centaur attack. It was something that he was deeply grateful for; he’d lost sight of her in the drudgery of the opening ceremonies and then hadn’t been able to find her again in the chaos of the attack. He’d enjoyed their time together since they’d first met but he’d been blindsided by his panic when he’d been unable to locate her. For the rest of the year, he’d made a point to spend as much time with her as he could.

After they’d returned home, the letters they’d shared had been nice; but not as good as seeing her as frequently as they had been. It hadn’t helped that she’d been talking about how much she wasn’t looking forward to the summer. Her parents were returning to Switzerland for something to do with her father’s health, and she was going to be left in the tender care of some distant aunt or something along those lines.

It didn’t have the makings of a good summer for her, so Lysander had approached his parents with a plan. With just a little bit of discussion, they’d agreed so there they were to work out the details. He’d never been in her home but she’d told him enough about it that he was reasonably acquainted with where he was going. It was a short walk to the room that he believed should have been the library and he smiled to find he was right before slipping inside to find his friend.

Lysander was in a pretty good mood as he made his way down into the dungeons, trying to seek out his query. Having only spoken to Penny once, and Pavon not at all, he wasn’t too sure where they could be found other than in the dungeons. He figured that even if he couldn’t find them, he might be able to leave a message for them that he was looking for them.

As he made his way through the hallways of the dungeons he looked around, trying to get a good feel for the layout. While he was quite pleased with his position in Ravenclaw, there was still a small piece of him that was disappointed he hadn’t ended up in Slytherin. There was such a long and storied history for the house of Salazar. It would have been a nice to be a part of that; generally, they were closer to the great moments in history than most other houses – with the possible exception of Gryffindor. He supposed that just meant he would have even more of a chance to stand out among his peers.

Ahead he spotted a small group of students walking and chatting; he recognized them all as students from Slytherin and he hurried to catch up with them. “Excuse me,” he called out as he approached them. They stopped and turned back to see who it was.

One of them seemed to recognize him and nodded in greeting before asking curiously, “What brings you down here Selwyn?”

“Well,” he answered, “I was hoping that I could find either Penelope Montague-Farnese or Pavon Sannesley. Would one of you be willing to see if he’s in the Common Room? And if he is, perhaps you could ask him to come out?”

The boy shrugged and said, “I suppose we could do that. For the right price, of course.”

“Of course,” Lysander replied,

“I’d owe you a small favor for it.”

With another nod, the boy he’d been speaking too waved his hand and one of the group hurried down the hall and around the corner – presumably to seek out Pavon or Penelope.

Lysander Selwyn




Full Name: Lysander Malachi Selwyn
Blood Status: Pure-blood
Nationality: British
Place of Birth: Selwyn Manor, near St. Ives, Cornwall
Date of Birth: September 1, 2060
Age: 16
House and Year: Ravenclaw, Sixth Year
Spoken Languages: English, French, Spanish
Relationship Status: Single

Appearance

Eyes: Blue
Hair: Black
Height: 6’ 2”

Look Description: Lysander is extremely tall for his age, though it – fortunately – seems as though he’s stopped growing. He wears his black hair cut short so it’s easy to maintain. His ice blue eyes shine with intelligence and cunning; and he has an easy, friendly smile.

Dressing Style: As much as he prefers the traditional wizarding robes, Lysander is comfortable wearing the more common muggle clothing that can be seen around the school more and more often over the years. His style of dress is most often predicated on what he is going to be doing and who he is going to be doing it with. It frustrates him, but he does have to suffer through glasses and he is reluctantly grateful for the muggle invention of contacts.

Personality

Character Description: Lysander is an easy going, laid back person; quick with a laugh and a joke. He is happy to talk to most anyone and will go out of his way to be helpful. This all covers up a much more traditional personality and belief structure. Like many of the purebloods, he pines for the day when things can go back to the way they were; the way they are supposed to be. He is content to play the game, fit in, and make contacts that can be used later – but he yearns for a return to the old customs and a sharp divide between the magical and muggle worlds.

Quirks: It takes a great deal of effort, but Lysander prides himself on not having any noticeable ticks or quirks. He sees things like that as a failing of self-discipline.

Strengths: Lysander is quick, both physically and mentally. Due to his bloodline, and their particular history, he comes from a great deal of money and the Selwyn family has maintained a great deal of its political influence. As well, Lysander is a credit to his House with particular talents in planning and research.

Weaknesses: Unfortunately, with his penchant for research and planning, sometimes he can be a bit slow to act. Also, with the privileges he grew up with he is more than a little bit arrogant; which can often times lead him to overestimate his own abilities.

Likes: Lysander likes music, and social gatherings. He loves to dance and enjoys intelligent conversation.

Dislikes: He is disgusted by muggles and by wizards who insist on believing that they inferior creatures are equal to wizarding kind. In the same vein, he is frustrated by magical folk who look down on the muggles but refuse to do anything to make their own world better.

Magic

Wand: 9” Cedar and Dragon’s Blood

Strength: Lysander has a particular gift for Transmutation, and a natural talent for Potions.
Weakness: Unfortunately, he is objectively awful at most forms of magical travel, including brooms, and he has a bitter distaste for magical creatures, so he spends little time improving in that area.

Family and History

Father: Malachi Leonin Selwyn
Mother: Danielle Alessia Burke
Siblings: None

Pet: Great Horned Owl named Victor

Background: The Selwyns are one of the few dark-aligned Pureblood families that have maintained their money and influence through the second rise of the Dark Lord and the war that it caused. During Voldemort’s first rise, several members of the Selwyn family were ardent supporters of the Dark Lord. Likely, the family would have fallen into the same trap as so many of their ilk if those same supporters hadn’t been killed in various conflicts against the Aurors and Dumbledore’s Order. Since there were no suriviving people to say otherwise, the family succeeded in claiming they were under the Imperious Curse and fled to France, intending to stay away from Britain until the cloud had settled.

As such, they were not in Britain for Voldemort’s return and there were no marked Death Eaters to be called back into service. They rode out the second war across the channel and watched in horror as the Dark Lord’s plans exploded in his face a second time. Almost before the body was cold, the Selwyns returned to Britain and took an active role in helping to stabilize the Government. They maintained their Ancestral Seat on the Wizengamot and – in fact – increased their fortunes. Delores Umbridge, by claiming to be a kin of the Selwyn family, found herself worse off than just her stay in Azkaban as the Selwyn’s took all of her family’s remaining capital in compensation for the damage that had been done to their reputation by her actions and lies.

Lysander was born and raised on the family estate in Cornwall, making friends with the Purebloods of his generation and looking forward to attending Hogwarts. Finally, the time came and he joined his friends on the train. The hat offered him a chance in Slytherin where several of the others had gone, but Salazar’s House still had a reputation that he was looking to avoid and so he found his home in Ravenclaw Tower.

For the most part, his years at school were peaceful and mundane. He did his best in his classes and tended to place near the top in each of them. He griped along with the other students as Muggle Studies was added to the required list, though he sucked it up and struggled through catching up with where he should have been for his year. It wasn’t until the attack on Maz Cowan that things began to change for him and he started to take a more active role. Her attack led to the downfall of several of the muggle lovers in the Ministry and their hangers on – he hoped that there would finally be a swing back toward the center. Unfortunately, that wasn’t to be and a more radical Minister was installed and it became clear to him that without clearer, more convincing voices in the Ministry and Wizengamot, nothing was ever going to change.
