WelshPlace of Birth:
Caer Morrigan, Wales – Just west of CardiffDate of Birth:
August 12, 2059Age:
English, WelshRelationship Status:
Tim stands taller than most of his peers, and has passed through the lanky stage and into slender. His movements are graceful and measured as one would expect of a practiced –if not professional – duelist. His skin is pale, contrasting sharply with his black hair and setting off his blue eyes which are often sparkling with laughter. After spending an afternoon with Maz and far too much alcohol, Tim also is the proud owner of a tattoo; raven wings spread across his upper back and shoulders which seem to ruffle in a non-existent wind as though in flight.Dressing Style:
Despite himself, Tim has a true respect for muggle clothes and fashion. Whenever possible, he sticks to casual clothes and can be found most often in a pair of worn jeans and a t-shirt. When he is forced to attend more formal affairs he prefers muggle suits to wizard robes.PersonalityCharacter Description:
Tim has come a long way from the overly polite, quiet boy he was when he was young. Now he is a strong-willed, opinionated young man who has no issues standing up for his beliefs and sharing what he thinks of any given topic or person. While he does his best to uphold his family name and the lineage it represents, he fights to balance the legacy he represents and maintaining his own personality.Quirks:
Adaptable, Likable, Curious, Cunning, AmbitiousWeaknesses:
Egotistical, Judgmental, Meddlesome, Remorseless, IntolerantLikes:
There are a lot of things that Tim likes; foremost among them would definitely be Magic. After all, his magic is what sets him apart from the rest of the rabble that infests the world. His moments with his few close friends are precious to him, as is learning new things and the joy of a good book. On a more physical note, he was introduced to sex early and has never looked back; and, like most things he does, he prides himself on his skill. Dislikes:
More than most other things, Tim detests muggles. They swarm like locusts, destroying everything around them and unable to even get along amongst each other. Their culture and numbers are swamping the world and their technology has wrecked untold havoc on the earth around them. His dislike of them carries to muggleborn students only in that they insist on bringing the destructive culture of their youth along with them instead of adapting to the clearly more civilized culture they’re joining.Boggart:
An enraged Centaur wielding a recurved bow and arrow.Patronus:
Tim has several memories that he can use to produce a Patronus, and they almost all revolve around Amber. MagicWand:
11 2/3” Blackthorn and Dragon HeartstringStrength:
Tim is innately gifted in Charms, the subject seems to come to him naturally with little to no work. When he does focus on a task involving charms, he has been known to produce incredible and powerful effects. Due to his friendship with Amber and her insistence that he study with her, he also excels in Defense against the Dark Arts and Potions.Weakness:
As a counterpoint to his skill with Charms, Tim is abominably, and legendarily bad at Transfiguration. Even the simplest spell has a tendency to go spectacularly and horribly wrong when he attempts it.EducationSchool:
While he is pursuing his Charms Mastery, Tim is in line to take the Morrigan seat in the Wizengamot and knows that he is destined for a life in politics.Family and HistoryGuardian:
Alexander Morrigan (Annabelle Morrigan – Deceased) Siblings:

Gray Owl named AronBackground:
Timothy Morrigan was born in St. Mungo’s Hospital, the first child of Alexander and Annabelle Morrigan. Unfortunately, he has no memories of growing up with them, as they were far too young when they had him, and they dropped him into the care of his grandfather, Richard Morrigan, with hardly a backward glance. He has partial memories of several arguments between his parents and his guardian but he was too young to really retain any of what was being said – and that would be the last he’d see of them for more than a decade.
Despite serving as Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot, Richard made a point to be around for the boy as much as he could. This wasn’t to say that Tim didn’t spend more time than he would have liked in the care of various nannies and tutors; but his Grandfather was a reliable presence in his life that was always there for him when he was needed. As more and more years passed, the sadness over the disappearance of his parents morphed into bitterness and hatred and he wrote them off as his family – Richard Morrigan was all he would ever need.
The year before he was to start Hogwarts, Richard had begun taking him along to several of the Ministry functions – to introduce his new Heir to the world that the boy would be a part of when he’d grown. As much as he tried to pay attention and do the right things, he was too young to really grasp what was going on and he slipped away from the crowds where ended up running into Amber Elison – a young pureblooded Heiress from the United States. The two bonded almost immediately and from that first event, Tim had almost no interest in attending any of them unless she was going to be there too. Shortly after, the pair became nigh inseparable when they were given the chance. They became very good at playing off of each other to make sure they both behaved and fit into the scene they were being paraded through.
Finally came the long awaited owl and his invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His enthusiasm was matched by his best friend’s – who’d taken to spending as much time at the Caer with him as she could, dealing with the fallout of a family which wasn’t nearly as close or understanding as his. Tim was rapidly sorted into Slytherin – following in the footsteps of his grandfather and so many ancestors before him.
The years at Hogwarts did not start out as the never-ending source of fun and adventure they were supposed to be. Their House did not immediately accept either one of them, Timothy for his blood and Amber for her status as a foreigner. This bullying and lack of acceptance had the effect of causing their bond to deepen and they really did become inseparable at the school – it was a very rare thing to find one without the other. They took to learning to duel and delving more deeply into what magic they could find; slowly earning the respect of their Housemates and the friendship of a small number of their peers.
Once he’d settled in, however, his time at Hogwarts was still not without drama. In his Fourth Year he was shocked and dismayed to find that his father had been hired as the new Charms Professor. The man was just as odious as Tim had always imagined and vacillated wildly from trying to form a relationship where one wasn’t wanted, and trying to make Tim’s life hell. The summer after fifth year, Amber was nearly implicated in the murder of her parents. Fortunately, Tim and Richard were both able to offer her an alibi and the search for the real killers continued. In their sixth year, their friendship deepened and changed and Amber and he began dating. Only for her to disappear mysteriously, part way through his Seventh year. A mystery that would go without an explanation until after he’d graduated when it would become just one more secret that he would hold.
Being without his best friend, and the woman he’d come to love, for what felt like the first time left Tim feeling remarkably lost. All the plans that they’d discussed for after school evaporated and he joined many of his peers in enrolling in the University where he would pursue his Mastery in Charms.
