Return to Hogwarts: A HP RP - OOC

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by October Knight, Oct 13, 2009.

  1. THE IDEA, redefined.

    After the defeat of Voldemort, darkness finally laid its ugly head to rest in the land of magic. The hidden life of Witches and Wizards stayed elusive to the muggles, who as a whole, had no idea how close they had come to death. The brave few who stood strong against all odds would forever remember the triumph and heroism that took place in that final battle against darkness in the greatest school in all the Magical world; Hogwarts.

    Although Hogwarts was left in a semi state of destruction, it wasn't long before it was rebuilt and once again it's halls filled with young and talented minds. If anything, the great battle only contributed to the mighty castles legacy thus making it's reputation even more epic.

    Our story takes place 17 years after Voldemorts death. It's a new time in a familiar place. The great castle stands tall against the September sky, like a beacon to the students returning as well as to the timid first years who shake with anticipation.

    Join me in an Epic tale of magic. One that may very well take us to dark corners of Hogwarts that have never been explored. New faces are sure to bring new adventures as well as new excitement.

    Ok, So I had an urge to create an HP RolePlay. I know most of the Harry potter RPs are the same as far as the time they take place (After the defeat of "He who should not be named) But it seems like the best time frame so I went with it. Honestly, I want to live in Hogwarts and experience all its awesomeness first hand. I hope I am able to do it justice with this RP.

    Characters we need will be students. First year, second. Whatever year is ok with me really. A teacher or two would be cool too, but its not essential as I think we can make the majority NPC ( It would be good to have at least 1 PC teach though)

    I want to have a list of teachers and what they teach for players to reference here in the OOC, that way we will all be on the same page. I could use help with some good names as well as help remembering some different subjects and such. And don't forget, since this is going to be our RP we can get creative with the classes, they don't all have to be previously (as in the books) mentioned ones.

    I think we should have a little Pre-Rp (Hey that rhymes!) discussion here before I throw up the actual thread. That way I can get lots of Input from Y'all as to where you would like this RP to go and ideas you may have and such.

    Heres a basic list (which I will edit as people help me add things) of classes and the teachers. As you can see I haven't added any of the Professors yet.

    Classes & Professors

    Potions - Taught by Professor Alaister Taboran,
    and Played by Grumpy

    Defense against the dark arts - Taught by Professor Robert McLeod,
    and Played by Darkness.

    Magical History - Taught by

    Herbology - Taught by

    Transfiguration - Taught by

    Lastly, I am mostly active on the weekends this time of year so bear with me as I try to post as often as possible. I won't leave Y'all hanging though, promise.

    And now Lets talk and get some classes and teachers down. I have never RPed a young wizard so I'm excited as hell to do so. I'll create a Character within the next few days and hopefully have the thread up SOOOOOOON!

    Good luck shaking the Hex of Defense against the Dark Arts

  14. Harleen Quinzell, A.K.A.



    Age: 20 somethins

    Race: Good ol' human

    Level: Street

    Intelligence 4
    Strength 2... .5
    Speed 3
    Durability 3
    Fighting Ability 4
    Energy projection 1


    Acrobatics: Harley's a nimble little killer, and commonly uses it to her advantage

    Lateral thinking: Harley excels at thinking up ideas and solutions to problems on the fly. Whether those solutions are any good is an entirely different question, but she's always willing to try something.

    Ass kicking: Spend half a decade getting punched in the face by the Bat and eventually some of those punches miss. Maybe some of that fighting ability was transferred via fist to face osmosis, because while no Cassandra Cain or Batsy himself Harley routinely whips down thugs, ninjas, and professional hitmen in large numbers.


    Contrary to some theories that floated around Gotham's streets while Harley Quinn was still the Joker's right hand man woman punching bag, Harleen Quinzel wasn't some goodie two shoes before Mister J. got his hands on her. Even in grade school she had a fascination with psychology, and also a fascination with kickin the ass of bullying pricks. Thankfully for everyone involved she did well enough to still graduate school, and eventually earned her degree in psychology with flying colors and then some. She did so well in fact that the infamous Arkham Asylum offered her a job. It was the resting place of the criminally insane of Gotham, and for one reason or another that seemed to equal the vast majority of the more dangerous members of the criminal element that threw down with the city's local protector.

    Harleen jumped at the chance, both to get a chance to look inside minds so fascinating, and to see if she could actually help the poor souls instead of dooming them to another trip through the streets and eventually into the fist of the Bat, hurting who knew how many innocents along the way? And luckily for her, she got the doozy right of the bat; The Joker, clown prince of crime and the one and true rival of the Batman.

    This did not end well.

    There are few people who know how to twists minds and words like the Harlequinn of hate, and after a few months of 'therapy' someone's mind had certainly been changed. Just not the Joker's. Harleen became convinced that the Joker had been the victim of the Batman, not a criminal that needed to be stopped. He was just a sad clown who wanted to use his genius to make a crazy, broken world smile more! So she helped him do that... starting with helping him to break out and killing a bunch of Arkhams guards along the way.

    Delighted at how well his new pet project turned out, Joker took Harleen under his wing and nicknamed her Harley Quinn. Soon the name became synonymous with the Joker himself, and years of gleeful crime in tandem began. Harley fell in love with the Joker, and did her best to stay loyal to him even through what she saw as minor bumps in the road. Like the time he dipped her in acid. Or the multitude of times she was tossed aside and left to be arrested or die. Or the time that something went wrong and the Joker's fury bubbled up into violent rage directed at the nearest and easiest target that wouldn't fight back. And then it happened again. And again. And again, and again, again again again again-

    Till one day, something finally snapped.

    The illusion that 'Mister J' had any ounce of actual affection for Harley finally shattered, and a bit of that bully hating girl from her youth finally returned. She fled Gotham and found herself the landlord of... Coney Island, somehow. Determined to turn over a new leaf (ish), Harley's spent the last year or so doing her best to watch over her neighborhood and tenants, and you know what? Its worked out! She even got the go ahead from the Bat himself, despite her occasionally heavy handed (i.e. ridiculously murder-y) style of vigilantism.
  15. Name: Robert "Rob" McLeod

    Age: 37

    Gender: Male

    Blood Type: Half-blood.



    He's 6'1", has some scars on his arms and chest. He often wears a black leather jacket that has lost color with use, preferring to buy another one instead of repairing it. He wears jeans that look just like his jacket, and leather boots that have seen better days. He likes to wear shirts without much design on it, and that don't stray from the primary colors.

    Wand: Mahogany, 13 1/2 inches, dragon heartstring.

    Short Bio:

    The son of a Scottish wizard and an American musician, Robert lived aware of magic since he was born, he lived in Scotland until he graduated from Hogwarts -Where he'd been sorted into Slytherin-, after graduation he moved to America to live with one of his cousins from his mother’s side. There he became interested in being a musician and became a guitarist and singer in a hard rock band for a few years, he enjoyed being away from the wizarding world, or rather didn't mind being away from it.

    Sometime later he returned to Scotland, after his father asked him to come back to work with him as a curse breaker for Gringotts, working in Iran to bring back gold from the Persian ruins. Later, Robert got married, but he got divorced two years later, a friend of his from Hogwarts who had a job at the Ministry suggested he took a job as a teacher at Hogwarts, the position recently opened after the last professor retired.

    Blood Type: Full Blood
    Relatives: Amalthea & Heathclif Hawthorn
    Appearance: Straight dirty blond hair, brown eyes. Curvy figure and about 5'6".

    Short Bio: Alathea comes from an average, every day wizarding family. ...which has made her all the more want to be very NON average. She is constantly looking for ways to stand out, be it through academic achievements, attempted sports (that didn't go over to well), or getting involved in school activities. Once she graduates, she intends to become one of the Professors. Hopefully Study of Magical Creatures.
  18. Both VERY accepted!!

    And a Stir crazy Prof. would be awesome, Jack.

  20. NAME: Zeromus Liberi Fatali



    BLOOD TYPE: Half Blood

    RELATIVES: Father: Xarxes Fatali (Muggle)
    Mother: Omnibus Fatali (Witch)

    BROOM: Whatever's in the school closets. Has a Firebolt reserved for when he's gained enough money.

    PET: Crow named Ozma

    SHORT BIO: Was born in Dublin, Ireland as a farmer's son, unknown to him his magical blood and background. Ended up peeling a potato with his magic, and his father told him of his wife, who had died giving birth to Zeromus. He decided that he wanted to follow in her mother's footsteps of becoming a Auror, a catcher of Dark Wizards. Also decided to go to the same school as his mother, Hogwarts. Is a very poor farmer's son, having aquired just enough money for all his years of Hogwarts and a bit more, just from his mother. Is a very protective guy, loves to defend those in need, and has aquired many enemies, but just as many friends, throughout his school years. Has a strong sense of justice, but is quite the troublemaker, and hates rules that make no sense to him. A hopeless romantic, as well as a musician (saxaphone, cello).

    ADDITIONAL INFO: Is exceptionally good at dueling, and thinking on his feet. Best subjects are DA and Transfiguration. Next best are Potions and Care of Magical Creatures. Worst are Divination, and History of Magic.
    Plays Quidditch, favorite position is Chaser and Beater. Is a great joker, and is sarcastic, and can be cynical at times, as well as emotional.
