5'11Look Description/Dressing Style:
Edgar likes to keep well groomed, face shaven, pressed robes, and never wears anything causal looking. He likes to look presentable at every moment. His closest idea of casual is a suit jacket with a button down underneath and denim jeans. That is as casual as Edgar will go. His skin is Pale and cold looking.PersonalityCharacter Description:
Edgar is very dark looking, he rarely smiles or laughs. His face is often blank, he prides himself in his ability to show very little emotion. Edgar has a lot of fears and phobias, especially in the Magic World, that is why he tends to find comfort in Muggles. They don't scare him as much and they are less threatening. Edgar grew up an outcast in his family so he doesn't like to get attached to people anymore. He tends to stay away from any type of relationship. His first and only love disappeared mysteriously on him and ever since Edgar has shut his heart out to anyone. He finds teaching is the only way to really keep his mind distracted.
Edgar may have a cold heart but deep down inside he still has some warmth left in him. Edgar does not lie, he isn't mean either, people take his sternness as meanness sometimes. He is loyal but won't get into a fight that he didn't cause. He is very shy and it takes forever for him to trust you.
He is very smart, and likes to show it when he is brave enough.Quirks:

Black cat named Siberia, Dark gold eyes.Background:
Edgar grew up in London with his father Samuel, In a large Flat just a couple blocks from the building his father worked in. His mother Sarah Klines, according to his father was also a Muggle. They met right out of Muggle College and got married a couple years later when they found out they were expecting a baby girl. When the baby was born still, Sarah never really recovered. It wasn't until she was pregnant again with Edgar that she started becoming normal again.
At age six Edgar started showing signs that he wasn't normal. Sarah figured it out instantly and told her husband Samuel, that one of her third cousins was a witch and she was sure Edgar wasn't a Muggle. His mother was convinced that this was a bad thing but Samuel thought it was brilliant.
The morning of Edgars seventh birthday, his mother left. No Good-Bye, nothing. Edgar never really got over her leaving and grew distant from the world around him.
The year before Edgar was to start school, he and his father moved to an actual house, thirty minutes away from London. Samuel tried his hardest to raise Edgar and work at the same time but it was hard so Edgar's father got him a nanny. Edgar learned to love his nanny, she was exactly like his mom and it made him happy again.
At age 11 Edgar got a letter in the mail from Hogwarts. He was scared to attend and leave home. He had after all never done magic but his smarts saved him making a fool of himself. He made no friends really just acquaintances. He was able to gain good O.W.L's.
In his last year of school Edgar went home to find that his Nanny had died earlier that school year. His father was too scared to tell Edgar the news then. Mad and Angry, Edgar finished out his last school year and left home. deciding he wanted to teach, Edgar not afraid to cheat faked an application using a bit of magic, to King's College London. With his fake degree he managed to get a small Muggle teaching job and worked there for 20 years.
Through the 20 years he did not talk to his father, deciding it was time to forgive Edgar returned home. His father had died 9 years earlier but left everything to Edgar.
Edgar swore from then on that no matter what he was never getting close to someone again. He was now 40 years old with money and a house he didn't want. They were constant reminders of his horrible childhood and stupidity. The only thing he had going for him was his experience in teaching.
Edgar then wrote a letter to Hogwarts, his old school. In hopes that his good behavior, Outstanding O.W.L.'s in all scores would land him a teaching position.
