Nate Essex

user posted image

Full Name: Nathaniel Bradley Essex
Blood Status: Half Blood
Nationality: British
Place of Birth: London, England
Date of Birth: 23 October 2061
Age: 15
House and Year: Gryffindor, 4th Year
Spoken Languages: English
Relationship Status: Single


Eyes: Blue
Hair: Brown
Height: 5’5”

Look Description: Nate Essex is pretty tall for his age, and rail thin as though he’s growing so quickly that his body mass hasn’t quite caught up with his height yet. He has slightly pinched features and almost perpetually messy hair and a friendly smile.

Dressing Style: While he prefers muggle clothing – since it’s what he grew up with – he doesn’t bother himself much about anything he has to wear as long as it’s reasonably comfortable. Really, the only type of clothing that he absolutely loathes are ties or turtlenecks.


Character Description: Nate is the eternal optimist. He sees the best in people and tries to bring that out in them. He is high energy though he’s able to suppress it for short periods of time when there is something important he needs to do.

Quirks: There is little chance of keeping Nate still for more than a handful of minutes at a time – his dad bought him a stress ball in the hopes it would give him something to play with so that he could concentrate better. It doesn’t work – but he still carries it with him everywhere he goes.

Strengths: Nate is very friendly and outgoing. He is open-minded and willing, even eager, to change his mind when provided with new information. He is empathic and understanding – wanting everyone to be happy.

Weaknesses: In his efforts to make friends, he can come on a bit strong sometimes and can sometimes be described as off-putting. He is also deeply naïve and trusting, tending to think that everyone believes the way he does – regardless of how many times it’s proven that this isn’t true.

Likes: He has a deep and abiding love for music, even though he has absolutely no talent for it. Unfortunately for his friends and those around him, this doesn’t stop him singing along with songs that he likes and knows. He enjoys most sports as well – though he does have a little bit more natural talent with those. Luckily for him, he’s also one of the rare students that really enjoys school – even if it requires a bit more work for him than most to manage passing grades.

Dislikes: Nate dislikes bullies but largely feels that even they could be won over in time.

Boggart: He is absolutely horrified of clowns and his boggart reflects that.


Wand: His wand is made of elder of a medium tone and has a core of dragon heartstring. It is 15 and 3/4 inches long and springy.

Strength: Nate doesn’t really have any specific magical strengths – he manages pretty well in all of his classes, but it requires a fair bit of work on his part.

Weakness: All of the magical subjects require some extra work on his part but he generally manages in the end.

Family and History

Father: Damien Essex (Muggle – Biologist)
Mother: Thalia Essex (Mixed Blood – muggle school teacher)
Siblings: Scott and Andrew (Half Brothers – 8 and 12 years his senior)

Pet: Soren, Barn Owl

Background: Nate grew up in a loving if unconventional family. His father who raised him, Damien Essex, was not his biological father and the marriage between his mother and father was a second for each of them. Damien came to the marriage with two older sons – Scott and Andrew – and his mother came with Nate. They melded perfectly and Nate grew up with two parents that loved him and siblings that protected him from others while working to corrupt him on their own in all the ways that older siblings are want to do.

His father was a biologist who worked for the government – a man of science. Even having grown up being certain that magic wasn’t really a thing, he couldn’t deny the evidence that was put in front of his eyes has his son grew up and he simply accepted it into his world view and as a part of his wife and child and moved on. By the time that Nate turned 11, he was well aware of Hogwarts and what was going to happen when he attended and he couldn’t wait to go.

His mom had been a Hufflepuff and he was a bit surprised – though, not disappointed – to end up in Gryffindor where he fought to find a place and friends as he tried to fit into the new world that he’d been introduced to. He watched nervously as the tensions in the school rose and did what he could to try and lessen them as much as possible.


Thanks for the arts, G!
