PostSubject: Terrence Fogarty   Sun 05 Oct 2014, 22:24

Birth Name
First Name: Terrence
Middle Name(s): Maxwell
Last Name: Fogarty
Suffix: N/A
Nickname: None

Birth Records
Birthday: February 8
Year: Seventh
Birthplace: Liverpool, England
Nationality: English
Current Home: Liverpool, England (but a different neighborhood than when he was born)
Blood Status: half-blood

Heritage
Brother(s)/Sister(s): Half-Sister: Tomoko Kajiwara. Mother: Julia Rigby
Father: Jude Fogarty
Other: Foster Mother: Martha Roberts. Foster Father: Bill Roberts. Foster sisters: Mary Jones, Prudence Mustard, Eleanor Mae, and Rita Kite. Foster brothers: Desmond Kite, Jojo Pepper.
Guardian: Martha and Bill Roberts

Maternal History: Julia was a muggleborn, born and raised in Liverpool. Her family was exceptionally poor, and she started working to help her family at a young age. So, when she got her invitation to Hogwarts, her parents forbade her from going, because they couldn’t spare the loss of income throughout the full school year, let alone afford the supplies. Julia didn’t object, feeling an obligation to her family. So she never actually learned magic, and the only thing that made her a witch were the occasional odd things that happened around her, but that were relatively easy to explain away, for the most part. So, when she married, Julia saw no reason to tell her husband that she was a witch. She didn’t really even know how it worked, so she had no idea that her son would be a wizard, as well.

Paternal History: Jude grew up slightly more comfortably, though his family was definitely still working class (and muggle). But they weren’t dirt poor, and Jude didn’t have to work just to get food on the table, as a child. Though he did have to work if he wanted to buy anything himself, because his parents couldn’t afford to give him much allowance. So he was able to enjoy his childhood. He hated school, and had a tendency to skip whenever he could possibly get away with it. He spent most of his youth wandering the streets and hanging out with friends. When he grew up, he got a job in the ship yard, and married Julia to start a family. However, never in his life was he entirely faithful to his girlfriends, and that stayed true even after he had married.

Appearance
Play By: [Dallas, Matt]
Hair: Dark brown that looks almost black. Sometimes he grows it out relatively long, and sometimes less so. But it’s never extremely short, and it’s always disheveled.
Eye: Light blue.
Skin Tone: He’s got white skin, technically, but it’s a darker shade of white.
Body: He’s moderately tall, but not excessively so. He’s built pretty thickly, and looks relatively muscular.
Clothing: He generally wears loose jeans, a t-shirt, and a leather jacket.
Other: He has slightly crooked teeth. It’s not so extreme that it looks truly grotesque; it’s just not the modern, perfect, teeth that you get from braces.

History
Your Childhood Before School: Terrence grew up in a working class family, but it wasn’t like he was dirt poor – there was always food on the table. And his parents worked long hours, but they were always home in the evening to spend time with him. When Terrence was four, his mother discovered that Terrence’s father was cheating on her, and left. She didn’t say a word to Terrence. One evening, she was tucking him in and reading him a story. The next morning, she was gone. His father didn’t explain to him, either. For over a year, he continued to sit at the window and wait for his mother to come home in the evenings, until he finally worked out that she wasn’t coming back. Still, even then, he continued to hope. Not long after his mother left, a two-year-old sister showed up in his house. His father didn’t explain much more than that she was his sister, and had come to live with them. But Terrence was not really encouraged to ask questions, and those he did ask were often left unanswered. So he never learned where his mother went, or where his sister came from.

By the time Terrence was ten, as boys were starting to secretly talk to their close friends about girls – and taunting them in public – Terrence began to realize that he had no interest in them. Terrence did not realize that it was a problem to tell people he was gay, but he soon found out just how wrong he was. At school, he was ceaselessly bullied. He was called names he didn’t really understand, and it wasn’t uncommon for the other boys to beat him up. He lost what friends he had very quickly. At home, his father was no better. He’d grown up being told how horrible being gay was, and he hated that his own son was gay. He’d yell and strap him and tell him he had to change. But nobody would tell Terrence why it was wrong. By the end of the year, he was kicked out of the house and entered the foster system.

Terrence was taken in by Mr. and Mrs. Roberts, whom he has been with ever since. But they were not the kindest people, doing it for the money. They had far too many kids under one small roof, and Terrence had six foster siblings of varying ages. All the boys had to share one room, and all the girls the other. The only good thing about the arrangement was that Terrence moved to a completely different community. He attended a different school (for what little time he had left in muggle schools), and recognized few people on the streets. So he was able to completely change who he was, and protect himself from anything like that ever happening again.
Happiest Memory: The memory is really bittersweet, because of everything that happened after. But he remembers going to an amusement park with his parents. It was his first time and he insisted on going on every ride he was big enough for (and he was tall for his age). His father went on every one with him. And he was allowed to have all kinds of treats. Looking back, he knew they’d probably been saving up for the adventure since he was born. And, to a degree, he even understood that at the time. He just felt loved.
Worst Memory: The day his mother disappeared. While he was not physically hurt, as he had been when he came out as gay, this was far worse. When he’d come out as gay, he knew what he’d done wrong, if not why it was wrong. He knew how to change, later. But when his mother left, Terrence woke up and she was simply gone, and he never knew why. He didn’t know if something had happened to her, if she’d been hurt or killed. Or if she’d fallen in love with someone else, or fought with his dad. Or if she’d left because of him. And, perhaps the worst thing, was that he didn’t know if she was really gone. Perhaps she’d just gone on a trip somewhere. So, for a long time, he did expect her to come back. Every day, he’d think it was the day she’d come home. But she never did.

Personality
Personality: In short, Terrence is a jerk. But he’s learned to be that way, because it protects him from being hurt. But, to some degree, it’s also revenge and that it feels good to have situations reverse. He is a ceaseless bully who enjoys picking on people, and will find any reason to do so – but he’s worst to homosexuals, as though worried if he isn’t mean enough then people will think he’s gay as well. For the same reason, he’s also constantly making passes at girls, but in rather obnoxious, misogynistic ways. And when he does have a girlfriend, he’s rather abusive, just like he is to everyone else. He seems to enjoy picking on people who are weaker than him or can’t stand up for themselves. He enjoys the safe feeling of having ‘friends’ in other bullies, though he isn’t really friendly with anyone. The only person he’s even kind of nice to is his sister, and he refuses to even tell anyone else that he has a sister.
Likes: Sports (especially rugby), bullying people, feeling powerful
Dislikes: People in general, girls (it’s almost like he thinks it’s their fault that he decided to pretend to like them), people who fight back, and having to pretend to be someone he isn’t
Fears: Something happening to Tomoko, the one person he actually cares about. People finding out he’s gay. Being weak and helpless and bullied.
Hobbies: He enjoys playing most every sport, especially rugby; picking on people; writing poetry(though he’d never admit to that)
Habits: He licks his lips whenever he’s decided to pick on someone, making him look rather like someone looking forwards to a good meal.
Strengths: Finding the thing that will most hurt someone, lying, he’s physically strong
Weaknesses: he doesn’t make any effort to make real friends, and is rather lonely. He has a constant need to, not exactly be liked, but not to be looked down upon. He feels compelled to hide parts of who he is, and can never truly be himself.
Worst class: Transfiguration
Best class: Defense Against the Dark Arts
Traits: Mean, Scared, Self-Preservation
Values: The only person you owe anything is yourself. Do whatever you have to protect yourself, and beyond that, nothing really matters.
Thing(s) They Love: A little soldier figurine. It’s really a very standard, cheap piece of plastic. But it was the last gift she ever gave him.

Terrence was sitting at the window again, waiting for their parents to get home. He'd started to give up on the idea that his mother would return, and he'd give up once his dad arrived. In fact, he would never admit to waiting for his mum. But he was still happy to wait for his dad. Except he was supposed to be watching Tomoko. Not that Terrence was really that much older - a six year old should not be left to watch a four year old. But they couldn't afford day-care every day, and Tomoko was pretty well behaved. Except apparently Terrence had been zoning out, because suddenly he realized that he was staring out at her through the window, and she'd somehow gotten outside without his noticing. She turned to face the window and, spotting Terrence watching, grinned. Terrence couldn't help himself and, despite his worry, he flashed her a smile as well, as he got to his feet to go get her.

But he didn't have a chance. Still facing Terrence, Tomoko was walking backwards, into the street, at the same time a car came barreling towards her. Terrence's eyes widened and he yelled at the tops of his long, fear and dread filling him, though he knew she couldn't hear through the window, "TOMOKO! NO!" But perhaps she did hear. It was like an invisible force yanked her back towards the house, digging her forwards a few steps and putting her safely back on the tree lawn. Relieved that she'd had the common sense to stop (for he assumed that was what had happened), but his heart still pumping wildly, Terrence bolted for the door and rushed outside to make sure she really was okay.

“I do not see the point in even discussing this” Terrence was informing them all in a rather pompous tone for an eleven year old, as the conversation turned to houses. “My father says that the only houses worth even thinking about are Ravenclaw and Gryffindor. My father says if you do not get put in one of those then you might as well go home. My father says that if you do not have the intelligence of Ravenclaw or the bravery of Gryffindor then your destined to be useless at life anyway.”

Of course, not only was his father a muggle, but Terrence hadn't talked to him in over a year. But he didn't intend to tell anyone a thing about his real backstory, so he was content making one up. One that made him sound good. He'd done a bit of reading, not wanting to appear weak because he didn't understand this new world. It seemed like the muggleborns were much like the poor, the blacks, and the gays in the muggle world - the lowest of the low. So he wanted to seem like he'd grown up with magic, at least on one side of the family.

As for the houses he'd picked, he was rather content with them. The Hufflepuffs sounded like wimps, and the Slytherins sounded like spoiled-brats. So he wanted either of the others. Preferably Gryffindor - he'd rather not be clumped in with the nerds. And he was convinced, as he had informed the others when the conversation had first started, that he could be in whatever house he wanted. Penelope had pointed out that she was verily sure you didn't get a say, and someone else decided. But Terrence had insisted that whoever was deciding would fully agree with him, because he deserved to go wherever he wanted.

Honestly, I think the last house Terrence should be in is Gryffindor - he's a coward. But I think, given the right push, he could be truly brave, and maybe the hat saw that. But, as it is, I honestly think he would have been best in Slytherin. He does have practical intelligence, so Ravenclaw isn't too bad, but he's definitely not book-smart. He also isn't hard working enough for Hufflepuff. However, he is big on self-preservation, if not necessarily ambitious. So I would have to say that Slytherin is his best fit. But one day, I do hope he will be suitable for Gryffindor, just as the hat thought.
