Play by : Lucas Jade Zumann
Hair : Dark, curly
Eyes : Dark brown
Height/Build : Of average build, if a little on the small side, Elliot tends to slouch or shrink int his clothes to make himself seem smaller
Style : Big shirts and oversized sweaters. Elliot’s clothes often make him look much smaller than he is. Comfort highlighted over style though always keeps his uniform or work clothes neat, even if the sleeves might be a little long.
Distinguishing Features : Elliot’s whole face scrunches up when he smiles or laughs


Reserved | Methodical | Patient | Compassionate | Insecure

Outwardly calm and reserved, if a touch awkward. inwardly, Elliot is somewhat neurotic and insecure, seeking acceptance and validation from his peers. A lonely child, Elliot yearned to have a chance to build connections and possess a great deal of compassion and warmth for those he’s close to. Unfortunately, it can take some time before he feels confident enough to reach out to others.

Order makes Elliot feel safe and in control when dealing with the whirlwind of activity that was living with his mother as well as helped handle the strange stillness when he visited his father. He will often plan, count, or practice his actions as a method to calm down or focus. Because of this, Elliot often struggles to function in situations without a clear goal or strategy and becomes very nervous when unprepared.

He was often stuck inside his own head as a child, and had a tendency to overthink or hesitate when considering his options. While this means he can miss out on opportunities, he prefers the feeling of control it provides.

As an adult, Elliot has grown more secure. While he still second guesses himself regularly and struggles to easily connect with his peers, he's learnt to smooth over his insecurities more often and is more comfortable taking charge and speaking up around strangers though he will still go out of his way to assure that others are comfortable, often over his own well-being.

Strengths : Organized, Reliable, Empathetic
Weaknesses : Stuck in his own head, Anxious, A push-over
Likes : Astronomy, Fantasy novels, Sour candy
Dislikes : Long distance travel, Jaffas


Elliot's parents split when he was very young, unable to reconcile their vast lifestyle differences. El grew up spending the majority of his time with his mother in New York and spending his (kiwi) Summers with his father in Kerikeri.
He's always lived in two separate worlds, the hectic, magical city life with his witch mother vs the calm, beautiful country life with his muggle father. After receiving his owl from HNZ, El had to decide if he was ready to combine those two worlds into a strange middle ground that he will need to learn to make his own.

Elliot started Hogwarts New Zealand as a reserved, anxious boy and managed to graduate seven years later still anxious, but far more assertive. After years of working hard, Elliot finished his school as Head Boy, prefect of Hufflepuff house, leader of the Wild Patch Club, and Hufflepuff house seeker and Quidditch captain. He was also grateful to leave school with a collection of very close friends, including Lily Lockwood, Lars van Houten, and long term girlfriend, Alice Holland. During his schooling, Elliot was able to find some level of direction and certainty in his life, being able to allow things he could not control or plan for wash over him rather than overwhelm him and has begun pursuing a passion in wandlore and wand-making while working at Ollivander's.

His first year was a bit daunting, but Elliot enjoyed most of his classes and a chance to be his own person. Able to come out of his shell, Elliot met some good friends amongst his fellow students, such as Lars van Houten, Madeline Kaimarama and especially Lily Lockwood, with whom he became fast friends. After getting his bearings and adjusting to classes as the year ended, Elliot has started to feel aimless with where he wants his schooling to progress and is beginning to look for more direction to branch out.

Feeling slightly less anxious about this year now that he’d already done things once, Elliot felt more ready to try a few new things this year.
He ended up joining the Wild Patch Club, which he found club activities quite enjoyable, as well as entering the Wheel Barrow Race and signing up for rose deliveries, both of which, while daunting, forced him out of his shell some. He also got closer with Kace, Adorah, and Lars this year, and unfortunately had some more run ins with Blake and Tyler. With the arrival of Lily's little brother and her also starting to date, things felt a bit weird with his best friend, but Elliot and Lily still managed to stay as close as ever.
Elliot was still concerned about feeling he had to be good at everything, especially in class, but overall the year still felt like a win, with Elliot hoping to branch out even more next year.

An eventful year for Elliot both in school and in his relationships. Elliot joined the Hufflepuff quidditch team as their alt. Seeker, and despite the usual anxiety and stress he felt around his classwork, was able to earn the most house points in his house. Elliot’s personal life was also highly eventful, with Elliot somewhat trying to help Kace navigate his family issues, reassuring Lily with her own romantic woes, and also Elliot’s new budding relationship with Lars. After kissing in Semester One, Elliot finally plucked up the nerve to talk about it with Lars and the two began dating, becoming Elliot’s first ever real relationship. Elliot’s still terrified he’s going to mess things up with him and Lars, but he’s been doing his best to do and say whatever he needs to to make Lars happy.

Elliot’s Fourth year was turbulent to say the least. Between his cousin Katy coming to Hogwarts for a year, becoming starting seeker for the Hufflepuff team, and the ever impending pressure of their approaching OWL year, Elliot was feeling a lot of pressure from day one. This year also brought some unpleasant revelations regarding his relationship and feelings regarding Lars. Breaking up with him was one of the hardest things Elliot had ever had to do, and the boys spent the rest of the year dealing with the emotional fallout damage to their relationship. Throwing himself into his extra circulars as a distraction from issues with his relationships, Elliot spent most of the year feeling distant from his fears, though he was able to at least become closer with his roommate, Aonghas.

Elliot's fifth year brought with it a whole new world of difficult responsibilities and stresses to navigate. Elliot took up a position working at Ollivander's, was awarded the title of prefect, as well as becoming one of the new co-leaders of the Wild Patch club. While he was grateful for the recognition, these new duties coupled with the arrival of his OWL year left Elliot feeling stressed and busy for most of the year. While he did his best to keep up, ultimately Hufflepuff's Quidditch season seemed to suffer the most, with Elliot having a terrible showing as seeker all year resulting in Hufflepuff's sad last place in the cup. Elliot was at least able to see the beginning of his relationship mending with Lars, as well a sudden new romance with Alice that had been quietly brewing under the surface for years. After surviving his OWL year and even managing top points earner for Hufflepuff, Elliot is hopeful for the coming years, feeling like he has more direction and responsibility than before.

Elliot's sixth year was an emotionally turbulent one to say the least. Things started off positively, with Elliot and Alice officially starting their relationship together. At school, Elliot was made Co-captain of the Hufflepuff Quidditch team, which proved to be just one more stressful responsibility he had to add to the pile, especially when Hufflepuff's quidditch season ended about as badly as it possibly could, much to Elliot's disappointment. The second semester came and brought with it a slew of relationship troubles. Elliot spent most of the last half of the year with Alice's lingering graduation hanging over his head, not to mention issues with Lily and the discovery of Lars and Blake having gotten together making things just that much more complicated as the year came to a close.

Elliot's final year started with the nerve-wracking confirmation that he had been selected as Head Boy. Thankfully, he had Alice to lean on, even if it was only via owl with her having graduated. Elliot spent most of the year trying to allow him to enjoy his final time with his friends and classes, though it was often hard not to get caught up in early nostalgia around the school. Thankfully, he kept plenty busy, finally managed to win another Quidditch game and secure Hufflepuff a joint second place in the second semester, along with his usual Wild Patch, organizing the rose giving, and prefect duties. Elliot was able to face his looming graduation with almost zen acceptance, realizing that he couldn't control his future and could only do his best to brave his way through it, though it was overshadowed by the unpleasant realazation that his father had been dating a wizard without telling him. His tense relationship with his father aside, Elliot was able to finish his last year on a high note, keen to step into the real world to join Alice and continue his work at Ollivander's.
