Ravenclaw and 6thSpoken Languages:
Ethan’s a good looking, five feet eight inch tall kid with dark brown hair and blue eyes. He feels everything on his symmetrical face and head are in proportion, though they may be a little small. He is slightly built, though he does have a thin layer of muscle on his stomach. Admittedly, he isn’t as well defined as he would like. Dressing Style:
Ethan only wears the house robes when it’s mandatory. Otherwise, he likes to dress comfortably in blue jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers. He occasionally wears a leather jacket. He likes to wear a silver Figaro chain with a Seraphinite stone on it. The stone is framed with pieces of silver and Ethan thinks he sees a sailboat in it on choppy waters during a storm. PersonalityCharacter Description:
Ethan’s a good kid, though he is opinionated and doesn’t mind telling people what’s on his mind. In a way though, he doesn’t have to, because you can usually read it all over his face. He’d be a really bad poker player. He’s very honest, which allows him to lie every once in a while and get away with it. He’s good with people, but he’s infinitely better with animals. He’s fascinated by the thestrals, which he can see because of his grandmother’s death. He still misses her and he just hasn’t bonded with another person as much as he was able to bond with her. He seems to like animals other people don’t like, like giant spiders and thestrals. He’s friends with a centaur he met while venturing around in the Forbidden Forest. He doesn’t suffer fools very well and will either walk away or tell them off when he loses his patience with them. He hates pranks. He’ll treat you well if you treat him and his family or friends well and won’t treat him well if you don’t treat him or his family and friends well. He cannot stand loud, bubbly people at all. They’re worse than Slytherins, as far as he’s concerned.Quirks:
When he’s nervous, he turns his head to the left. Strengths:
(Minimum 5) Ethan is quite loyal to his family and friends. He’s a very good student and does well in all of the magic classes: Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Healing, Potions, and Transfiguration. He is also great with all kinds of animals. He’s extroverted, friendly and usually honest. Weaknesses:
(Minimum 5) He’s quite transparent if he likes or dislikes something. He’s as prejudiced against Slytherins as they are prejudiced against Muggles. He doesn’t do very well in Arithmancy, Divinity, and Runes. He’s arrogant, judgmental, stubborn, and holds grudges. He has intense claustrophobia. Likes:
Charms, Care of Magical Creatures, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, and Transfigurations. He likes lads better than lasses, though he’s still very deeply in the closet. He does like correcting the idiocy that he hears students say about Muggles when it’s infinitely clear they don’t know what the Hades they’re talking about. He likes the art of Hieronymous Bosch tremendously. He’s friends with a centaur. Dislikes:
Arithmancy, Divinity, Muggle Studies because he’s Muggleborn, and Runes. He can’t stand quidditch because he doesn’t understand it. And he abhors Slytherins, especially those snakes that don’t like him for just being who he is. Boggart:

Aiden, 15 and William, their eldest brotherPets:
Gavroche, an Irish setter, who gets along well with Aiden’s black cat much to Ethan’s embarrassment, and Eponine, a miniature Scops Owl. Background:
The Flynn family wanted for nothing because their father ran an international shipping company that had been in their family for four generations. The best part was that his father wasn't so busy that he stayed at work forever and never came home.
When Ethan was five, his maternal grandmother died. Ethan loved her more than anyone else in the family. That’s the first time weird things began to happen at home and they lasted until Ethan was able to come to terms with her death, which was a very long time. A week later, a bully in school pinned him to the ground and was hitting him. Suddenly, the boy’s shirt went up over his face, forcing him to release Ethan’s arms. Ethan forced the boy onto the ground and ran home.
When he was eleven, his letter from Hogwarts arrived and no one in the family understood what it was or what it meant. Luckily, professors from Hogwarts arrived and explained it to the family. It seemed to Ethan like William, his eldest brother, was a little bit afraid of magic, but Aiden, his younger brother, was excited about it.
Ethan realized that some students were rude and arrogant, and called him Mudblood. This upset him at first, until things inexplicably happened to them (magic Ethan still didn’t realize that he had). The students warned him that they would get back at him and he really had no idea what they were talking about until he began attending classes. Then he understand he could do magic and that explained the weird occurrences at home -- somewhat.
He learned to fly on a broom and enjoyed it a great deal. He was only sorry that students didn't travel everywhere by broom. He didn't understand quidditch then and still doesn't, which is why he doesn't play it. And while he excels at the magic classes like charms, defense against the dark arts, potions and transfiguration, he doesn't do well in the divinity classes like arithmancy, divinity, or runes.
He really enjoyed his first year away from his family because almost all of them weren't magical. They expected that Aiden might have some magic in him. He couldn't wait to tell Aiden about everything, although he definitely made a couple of enemies.
The next year, he welcomed having Aiden, his younger brother, at Hogwarts. He wanted to sit on the train with him to really let him in on what was going to happen on the way, but whether on purpose or not, he wasn’t able to. One, he lost track of him because a porter got in his way on the platform. Two, when he finally found the compartment where Aiden was sitting in, it was full with other students.
In his third year, he finally got the nerve to venture out in the Forbidden Forest. As he sauntered along, he thought he heard someone crying out for help. As he walked toward the crying, he saw a centaur with his leg caught in a hole in the ground. He took a stick and started digging around it to set him free. The centaur, Xaneen, called him a friend from that time forth.
Ethan is thinking he might want to be a healer though he is not sure if he wants to heal wizards and witches, or magical creatures.
