Appearance
Hair:
Dark (near to black)

Style: Often accompanied by dark garments to match his eyes and hair, Cole's most notable and distinguishing garments fall in line with his appreciation of leather. This particular affection is accentuated through his wearing of leather boots and jackets.


Special Talents/Abilities:

Wandless Magic:
Has the ability to cast reasonably powerful and accurate wandless magic.

Expert Practitioner of the Dark Arts: In direct correlation with aspects of his past, Cole has an exceptional understanding of dark magic and a wide knowledge on manners in which to practice it. Whilst in more recent years he shies away from displaying his prowess openly - he still holds a great deal of control and understanding over the darker and more sinister fields of magic.

Expert Duelist: Whilst not the best duelist in the Wizarding World, Cole's been known to hold his own when it comes to duelling others in spellcasting. In his past he has held his own in defending himself against other dark wizards.

Master Owl-Handler & Owl Expert: In correlation with his upbringing and constant association with Owls, Cole is an expert in the subject of the creatures as well as the means to handling and training the flying wonders. He has been noted to be able to tame even the wildest and most stubborn of owls - and despite it taking a great deal of time and patience - from any other onlooker, it would be described as being 'with ease'.

Charms, Potions & Transfiguration Prowess: Having excelled in the subjects whilst at Hogwarts, Cole's understanding and ability in the aforementioned areas of magical mastery are noted to be beyond the average wizard.


History:
- Born and raised in Virginia, United States to parents Klaus Manick & Drusilla Manick.

- Parents raised his to believe in a "one-magic world". The idea of this translated to the fact that they believed that magic was an unaffiliated essence which was governed only to be good or bad by those who practiced it.

- Attended Hogwarts Scotland for his schooling. Was sorted into Slytherin House and excelled in Charms, Transfiguration & Potions.

- Completed his schooling and became a member of the Manick Owl Battalion; a owl rescue group which is parents had created in their earlier years.

- Created the first branch in the United Kingdom, appointing his nephew, Flint Dontan as its overseer, before heading to New Zealand to create another branch there.

- Met his wife in New Zealand and had a son, Graydon, and a daughter, Ororo.

- He and his wife became the Board members representing the New Zealand M.O.B (Manick Owl Battalion), consulting with the United Kingdom branch and the United States branch.

- After several years of marriage, Cole and his wife divorced due to differing opinions on the upbringing of their children.

- Cole's daughter went with his wife, whilst his son remained with him; raised in the beliefs of the Scitorari. Meanwhile, his daughter was raised under the beliefs of the common wizarding world.

- After a request made by his son, stopped practicing a great deal of "dark magic" unless required of him.

- Spends most of his time tending to the well-being and protection of owls and training owls in the art of security; a particular strength of the Manick namesake.

THE MANICK OWL BATTALION
~
a history of an organisation
EST.
6/01/2000



Founded January 6th, 2000 in Virginia, United States, the Manick Owl Battalion ( M.O.B ) was a organisation created and founded on the basis of ensuring the well-being and fair treatment of owls in the wizarding world. Whilst the M.O.B's original purpose had been to simply expose and protest for owls which were mistreated in the wizarding world, they soon became far more involved with its members taking genuine action in the battle to ensure their ideals were seen to in reality. Before long, whilst still being a voice for animals in need, the M.O.B became a legitimate rescue organzation for mistreated & wild, injured owls; obtaining funding from not only the Ministry of Magic, but from independent parties.

The organisation operated for its first several years out of a small log cabin which was owned by founder(s) Klaus & Drusilla Manick.

In 2005, the M.O.B became a renowned for their efforts and progress in owl preservation and protection; being noted as a formidable force combating mistreatment in owls. However, it had been about this time in which the M.O.B also came under fire for accusations of unorthodox and unlawful methods in penalising those who they found to be committing the crimes in which they fought to prevent and hinder. Whilst nothing was ever proved without a doubt, many members of the wizarding community of America became skeptical of the M.O.B, and the organisation was forced to broaden its horizons to other regions of the world to sustain and obtain further funding to keep their mission going.

The M.O.B felt the effects of the media reports which the Daily Prophet continued to scribe about them, however, as a means of ensuring that the rumours of their foul play became none more than stories of the past, Drusilla Manick began her public circuit; doing countless interviews to clear the name of the M.O.B. Her wit and intelligence made her an exceptional spokesperson for the organisation - as well as her like-ability and trustworthy facade. Before long, the stories of their foul play had been suffocated and the M.O.B once more shone bright for their acts of good for the wizarding community.

In 2028, Cole Manick, son of Klaus and Drusilla begun the mission of the M.O.B in the United Kingdom, erecting a new branch and creating a new foundation for the organisation to operate from. With the galleons they had managed to muster and maintain, the M.O.B U.K Branch operated from a large facility which housed over three hundred employees who were dedicated to the preservation and protection of owls; not only in the United Kingdom, but abroad as well.

With the help of additional members of the Manick family, the U.K Branch quickly became the main office of the M.O.B. Funding sky-rocketed, and the original American Branch demolished their minimal log cabin and instead, in it's place, built a large castle which served not only as the American Branch's base of operations, but also, as a museum and historical hub for the M.O.B.

Once the vast majority of the work had been completed to establish a successful branch for the United Kingdom, Cole appointed nephew and business savvy M.O.B member, Flint Danton as the Chief Overseer of the branch. Under his leadership, and with the help of his father, Tobin, the U.K branch quickly became the training facility for rescued owls; making them house friendly, and rehabilitating them from any trauma that might have become them. It also posed as a facility which trialled the training of combat owls for the Ministry of Magic, which, until this day, continues to go on as a succesful means of detaining and disarming unsuspecting witches and wizards - without the need of putting Aurors and/or other magical law enforcers in danger.

In 2040 the New Zealand branch of the M.O.B was established by Cole Manick & Elia Manick. The base of operations was built on one of the highest hillsides of New Zealand, overlooking the sprawling forests. It is the second largest branch (second only to the United Kingdom branch) and appears modern and yet refined appearance.
