Say Hello to
Jerara Jarli Tapsell!



------------------------------------------------------------
I have this feeling in my gut now ,
I don't know what it is I'll find ,
------------------------------------------------------------
FULL NAME:
Jerara Jarli Tapsell


MEANING:
Jerara- Waterfall, cascade
Jarli - Barn Owl
Tapsell - The origin and meaning of this name is quite clear, it is a patronymic and means 'the son of Tapp' with 'Taeppa' being an old English personal name meaning 'top' - as in 'chief' or possibly one who lived at the top


WHY:
Being the first born to his family the pressure of picking the right name for him really resided with his parents, and eventually they settled on Jerara only after he was born, for about a week Jerara was nameless, his parents could hardly decide and they went through a multitude of names until they settled on it. To them it was the perfect name for him, it just sat right, it had been the name of his fathers great grandfather and though Jeraras father hadnt really wanted to name his son after someone else in the family, or reuse a name, but the name suited and once it was said out loud with Jerara in the arms of his mother it just made sense. His middle name was a far less complex decision, both of his parents had wanted to give him a middle name, and once the first name had been chosen his mother felt rather keen on the name Jarli, she had at the time believed that Jerara would be her only child and therefore gave it that name. The surname was not the original name of the family, but numerous generations back one of the men within his family decided to change it, to fit in better with the society they had found themselves having to live amongst, he picked the name at random and it has stuck. Jerara finds his name being fine, he likes his first name, and he likes his surname, he has no real problems with what he is called.


NICKNAMES:
With the simplicity of his name it has never really suited Jerara to have a nickname, some of his muggle school friends would shorten it to Jera but that was about it, it never really stuck and was only occasionally thrown into sentences. His mother does occasionally refer to him as Jarli, mostly just using it as a pet name, but aside from that he doesnt really have nicknames, not one often used or commonly known by people around him, he has never much cared about it and doesnt mind not having one. He is rather proud of his name and doesnt think anything else would ever suit him quite as well as his name does.


AGE:
He is currently thirteen years old.


D.O.B.:
Jerara was born on the 28th of November 2030, he was the first son of his parents and born in the early hours of the 28th, it was a rather tricky birth, his mother had been in labour for over nineteen hours when Jerara finally arrived. He was a healthy weight for a baby, though seemingly a little on the small size. He was a rather quiet baby when he was first born which contrasts to all of his brothers.


PROFESSION:
Being only young, Jerara is only a student


FATHER:
Keon Tapsell Jr. Born and raised in Darwin, Australia. Muggle. Community helper, visits school to help teach about aboriginal culture. He also works part time in a legal office, he is not a lawyer but he does a lot of administrative work for the firm as well as doing the occasionally bout of research for causes. All the lawyers in the office deal with cases to do with human rights. He briefly attended university before deciding it wasn't right for him. He is exceedingly proud, and a firm father, he doesn't like when his sons lie to him or when they don't own up to mistakes. He is works with very firm principles and he'll never accept anything less than what he wants. He doesn't understand why Jerara has magic but he is incredible proud of him.


MOTHER:
Nerida Tapsell, born and raised in Darwin, Australia. Muggle, nursery teacher. Nerida has always loved children and specifically babies, she loves looking after them and she loves having babies. She was very excited when she was first pregnant with Jerara and she absolutely douted on him during the first few years of his life, up until she grew a little bored when he started going to school, and luckily at this time she was pregnant with her second son, and this made her realise that she really preferred babies to children and got bored as they got older and needed her less. She does love all of her children dearly she just finds it easier to spend time and look after the youngest baby of the family.


SIBLING(S)
Jerara has three younger brothers;
Narrah Tapsell, born in March 2035, and showing no signs of magic.
Balun Tapsell, born in December 2038, and showing no signs of magic
Adoni Tapsell, born in June 2041, and is too young to be showing any signs of magic.
Kaih Tapsell, born May 2044, too young to show signs of magic
Koa Tapsell, born May 2046, too young to show signs of magic
Orana Tapsell, born September 2048, too young to show signs of magic


OTHER:
Jerara has aunts, uncles and cousins.


PET(S)
A barn owl, which his father bought his as a present for school and as a reference to his middle name, he does really love the owl, which he named Charlie, and thinks of it as his companion into the magical world, the fact it can and does carry mail, he loves his pet, he thinks its incredible that he now has a pet that he can call his own.


BLOOD STATUS:
Muggleborn


THOUGHTS ON BLOOD STATUS:
Jerara is new to the magical world, he has not yet spent enough time in it to really realise his status within it, or the issues that the magical world has about blood statuses. He is fairly used to occasionally being treated pretty terribly by those who imagine themselves better than him because of skin colour, and therefore hell always be very proud of who he is, regardless of its about being muggleborn or being aborgine. Hes very confused about this new magical world that hes in and it separates him from his family but hell never shy away from what he is to those within the magical world. Jerara will not think it should matter as to what a blood status a person has, to him itll always be a pointless, fruitless endeavour which doesnt help any part of society.


HOMETOWN:
Darwin, Australia


CURRENT RESIDENCE:
Darwin, Australia


THE PLACE TO LIVE:
Given that he has lived in the same place, the same house for all of his life, he very much loves the area in which he lives, he loves the weather, he loves the feel of the place, he has friends within it, its completely home to him, and theres little about it that he would change. Hes always enjoyed living in it, and whenever hes having a rough day, hell go for a walk, theres always something new for him to see, or experience and hell follow adventure wherever it may lead him. He feels incredibly comfortable and at ease within it, which is different from any where else he has ever been, even if its just a few days.


PREVIOUS HOMES:
FIRST HOME: The house which he lives in with his family is a modest home, he shares a bedroom with the brother immediately after him, Narrah, and they share a spacious room. It can get heated between them occasionally but they always in the end settle the issues. He loves the house they live in, its not the fanciest place, but it has a garden and it has enough space, its exactly what hes known all his life and he really enjoys it and the feel that it has.


SEXUAL ORIENTATION:
Jerara has recently decided that he's very likely straight, he finds boys nice and that they can be pretty but he certain has had crushes and feelings of attractions towards girls far more


CURRENT RELATIONSHIP STATUS:
Taken - he is currently seeing Eleanor Hope


CRUSHES PAST AND PRESENT:
Currently Jerara has two crushes, he really likes the girl he met at the yuleball one year, Eleanor Hope, thinking her to be a rather fantastic person and Beaubelle Waldgrave, who is a quiet person from his year. He likes them both, but knows that's a silly thing.


FIRST KISS:
To Eleanor Hope


FIRST FRENCH KISS:
Not happened


PAST RELATIONSHIPS:
None


FLINGS:
Too young


THE FIRST TIME:
Too young
------------------------------------------------------------
I'm waiting for an answer ,
I don't know that I'll get
------------------------------------------------------------
HAIR COLOUR:
Jerara has very dark brown almost black hair, he doesn't really do much with it, since he doesn't see the point in it, he lets his father decide when he needs it cut and tidied up but if Jerara had his way he would just let it be and let it grow out likely until he got annoyed at it. Despite him not caring too much about he does really like how his hair is, its thick and full. He likes its dark colour and he likes how sits. He will brush his hair but that's about all hell ever do with his hair. His little brother Adoni likes to put little clips in his hair when he spends time with him, but that's about all hell ever have.


HAIR HAS BEEN DYED
Jerara would never, he just wouldn't. He doesn't care about people if they do, but he would never do it. To him it's just not the thing to do with hair, he likes his hair as is, and wouldn't do anything to change it especially not to make it a different colour.


EYE COLOUR:
Much like the rest of his family, Jerara has dark brown eyes, hes always liked his eyes, hes just always liked how they looked and though hes heard people in his old primary school talk about how boring it is to have brown eyes he's never seen it that way, rather he has always liked the dark brown colour that he shares with his family, they suit him a lot. Jerara is really satisfied with his appearance, he likes how he looks. Especially his eyes and hair, his father has always raised him to firmly believe in himself and in a way that is just that element of confidence and pride that his father instilled to him coming through.


BIRTHMARKS/SCARS:
Jerara does not have any scars or birthmarks, despite being quite clumsy he never falls bad enough to get scars and therefore has always remained scar free. He has always been quite happy to be birth mark free for no real reason ther than he does. He sees the odd scars that his father has and often wonders if it is better to have scars to show lessons learned or to have none and give the idea of never having taken any risks.


BODY TYPE:
Since he was an active child, he had a slim build, he is of average heig for someone of his age and weighs no more or no less than he should. He has a slightly thin face but it isn't anything too bad or that takes away from his overall appearance. His father is quite tall so it is sure that as he grows up that hell grow to be quite tall and Jerara has always eaten well so he imagines that if he keeps that up hell always remain quite slim.


BLOOD TYPE:
B (-ve)
Jerara had a blood test taken when he was quite young and it was from overhearing the conversation that his father had with the doctor that he heard what his blood type was, this was up until he was magic the only definition or description of his blood that he ever thought he might need and he doubted really that it would be of that much use to him. He has never needed to know it, but he learned it and it just wasn't something he just forgot. He became very curious about what it meant, and did a little reading on the matter. Asked his primary teacher at the time about it.


WHICH HAND?:
Right handed.
Jerara had been curious about why he wrote with his right hand since the kid who sat next to him in class was left handed, he asked his teacher a lot about it and then asked his family about how they write just to see why he mightve picked his right hand or why it was just the dominant hand, he wasn't really able to get an answer other than both his parents were also like him right handed so it had to be a genetic thing. He definitely enjoyed finding about why he was right handed more so than actually being right handed, he doesn't care too much about what hand he can write with he only really cared about the why.


VOICE:
Being born and raised in Australia, Jerara has a thick Australian accent, his voice dropped a little after he turned eleven so it has less of the high pitched squeakiness that his voice used to have, but he definitely has a think Australian accent. He was always surrounded by others like him with similar sounding accents, so he never thought anything of it. He's never had issues with it, and expects to have none when he goes to New Zealand.


I CAN SPEAK:
Jerara can only speak English, he never did any other languages in school and never really cared much for languages, he likes finding out the origins of words but he's not so interested in learning a whole new language. He's always managed to get by with English and looking up where words come from to him is definitely more interesting than a new language. That being said he always thinks it's incredible when people can speak more than one language, he is always asking questions, trying to find out more about how it works but that is really the length of his interest with languages other than English.


I AM ALLERGIC TO:
He has a very mild allergy to peanuts, it is the only thing he is allergic to, but the reaction he has if he eats them if not as bad as it was when he was a young child. He isn't bothered about having this allergy he doesn't eat them and finds them pretty easy to avoid.


PERSONAL STYLE:
Given where he lives and the sort of temperatures that he experiences, his wardrobe and therefore style can be summed up pretty easily as summery. He likes t-shirts and shorts, he likes comfortable, but fitting clothing, a lot of what he owns is brand new and gets passed down to his brothers. He isnt one for labels but can be called quite trendy. He doesnt own too many clothes but he makes good use of them, and doesnt seem the harm in wearing clothes more than once, or wearing them until they really become too small, or just are no longer likely. He has a very relaxed style, he isnt too sure about what might await him in the cold of New Zealand.


CURRENT PLAYBY:
Hunter Page-Lochard

I know there's a reason ,
I just keep hoping it wont be long til I see it ,
------------------------------------------------------------
CHARACTER LIKES:
Jerara likes Australia, he likes his upbringing and the stories about his ancestors. He likes going out into the countryside of northern australia and enjoying the peace and the wildlife. He loves the sun, beaches, warm weather, he loves the outdoors and he likes going for long walks. Jerara loves experiments and gaming, he loves being able to prove something and do something. He loves bonfires and fireworks. He likes occasionally being alone as much as he enjoys having friends. Jerara like being magical, and he likes energy drinks that make him feel exceedingly hyperactive. He likes going climbing and is probably the only kind of sporty thing that he does. He likes asking questions and getting answers to them.


CHARACTER DISLIKES:
Above all other things Jerara hates cold weather, he hasnt ever really been able to deal with it, not well, and he finds it incredibly hard to deal with anything lower that what hes used to. Jerara doesnt like bullies but he has come across a lot of them in his life. He is often faced with them in his primary school and though he doesnt like there actions he doesnt fight back either. Jerara doesnt like being weak, and though hes an energetic and active person, he is sometimes clumsy, and hes quite nervous in situations. Jerara doesnt like subject that dont involve some form of proof, that he cant see the evidence for. He doesnt like not having his phone in the magical world. He doesnt like snow or lots of rain. He doesnt like snakes, and he doesnt like quills.


GOALS:
Since he is muggle born, and his life has just completely changed, his current goal is to just learn all that he can about the magical world, about magic in general, he just cant wait to be able to just enjoy this world. And his goal is to learn all and everything that he can about it.


BOGGART:
Prior to magic as much as Jerara can find his family frustrating, he would very much see them dead or hurt and he would have the inability to help them, but following having magic his boggart would definitely be himself losing the magic that he has, he has only had it for a short time, but already all hes learned about this magical world make him never want to leave it ever. He just doesnt want to have to ever think about nothing having the magic. So it would definitely be what he sees when faced with a boggart.


PATRONUS:
Likely Jeraras patronus would be a wombat.


PATRONUS MEMORY:
Becoming a wizard is definitely Jeraras strongest and happiest memory, he cant really imagine now what his life would be like not being so, he loves every second of it. He was just back from school when he saw the school administrator sitting with his father in the living room of his house with the letter in hand. To him after reading that and hearing the information from the man telling them about magic he was elated, this was such an incredible thing to happen to him. He felt amazed but hardly surprised since it finally gave a reason for why ever so often Jerara managed to do things that couldnt be explained. He is so eager and happy to have this ability and cant wait until hes able to continue it and learn more. He had never felt so elated and over the moon in his life. He didnt know what it would bring, but it was a new and incredible world that had just opened up to him.


DEMENTOR:
When his younger brother Balun was born, Jerara was pretty annoyed, he was only eight at the time and couldnt understand why his mother kept having more children and specifically more sons, he had noticed when his other brother Narrah was born that his mothers attention jumped from Jerara to him and now it was going to jump to the new baby, he got really upset about it in his primary class and one of the other boys started calling him incredible terrible names, as well as his applying them to his mother as well, these were racist slurs that Jerara had never encountered before and it just left him crying for hours. He felt so angry and hurt at his mother for having another child, and he couldnt understand why the boy in his class would say such things to him. It just always stuck in his head as a truly awful day, he just didnt understand why he and Narrah werent enough for her, and he definitely didnt enjoy the use of such hateful terms.


VERITISERUM:
Jerara is close to his family, thats a fact, but he feels very overwhelmed by them, he has three younger brothers all of different ages and his mother is the type that doesnt seem to want to stop having children. So, he would definitely admit that for him, being magical is getting him out of being around them, and hes happy about it. Which is definitely not something he would say out loud or to his family, his father has always been very strong with ideal of sticking to ones family.


MIRROR OF ERISED
Jerara would see himself as an incredibly powerful wizard. He would see his magic be the strongest it could be, he would be sure of himself and who he is and he would be powerful, capable of doing anything. He doesnt yet know the limitation of his magic but his desire is to be all powerful, to know all he can and use it to the best of his abilities.


AMORENTIA:
Jerara has always loved the smell of cooking, it doesnt really matter what it is he has always loved the smell of a kitchen thats in the process of making something. He loves the smell of a roaring fire, he thinks both the combination of smell and sight of it is perfect. Its just amazing to him. Hes always enjoyed the way that spices smell when they are fresh, hes always loved the smell of chocolate.


I LOOK UP TO:
Jerara has always looked up to his father to a degree, enough that he would say it to be so. His father is a very passionate and driven man, he is firm in his view point and is not often swayed by others. Hes always keen to help people within their community and has a bravery to stand up to whomever crosses his path in the wrong way. Jerara has always enjoyed watching his father at work and wondered if it would be better for him to just be like him.


RELIGIOUS BELIEFS:
Being Aboriginal he never subscribed really to the supposed christian god, though he learned about it and others in muggle primary school, he was raised more on the stories of his familys origin and the history that comes from where his family originated from. Largely passed down through generations just by spoken mouth. He has a huge respect and admiration for the stories of the warriors and the spirits hes learned about, and though he doesnt entire believe some of the elements of the stories hes been told hell always enjoy them. Hes never really believed in any supernatural thing until he found out he was magic and it kind of ripped the logical science side of him that needed to see to believe out from under him. He doesnt believe really in a higher power, but he is now more skeptical about his own beliefs that elements in the stories he learned about as a child were false.


ZODIAC SIGN:
Sagittarius


ZODIAC DESCRIPTION:
Ruled by the benefic planet Jupiter, Sagittarians possess a natural exuberance, sense of adventure and love of life that makes them one of the most optimistic zodiac signs of all. Like their astrological symbol - the Archer - Sagittarians are renowned for aiming their sights towards whatever it is they find alluring - a love partner, dream job, vacation - and making it their own. They believe that anything is possible - and because of this belief system, Sagittarians are adept at seeking out their very own pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But sometimes trying to tie down these free-spirited individuals is frustrating for those around them. Sagittarians are happiest on the move - exploring new cultures and ideas and many are attracted to occupations related to travel, the media, outdoor work and philosophical pursuits. In love, their catch-cry is "don't fence me in". But once they find a partner who understands their need to retain their own sense of self and identity, Sagittarians can be the most big-hearted, generous and fun-loving companions of all. Full of enthusiasm and given to grand ideas, often with little attention to detail, they can be a little slapdash, with a near enough is good enough attitude, however they are able to see the overview of things and leave the details to others. If they have a life lesson to learn it is probably one of restraint.


BASIC PERSONALITY:
Jerara is a quiet person, hes adored by his family and he loves them as much. Hes a very curious boy, always the type to silently watch and occasionally ask questions. Hell often go for walks on his own if he ever feels overwhelmed. Hes a very nervous person when presented with a situation that he isnt entirely used to or know very well. Jerara occasionally feels out of place, he doesnt quite understand where he belongings and this is made worse by him being magic. Jerara is a friendly enough person, hell speak to others when he wants to and is exceedingly excitable about things. He loves music, he thinks of it definitely as one of his biggest passions in life. He is a very active child, and really not often caught doing nothing, whether it even be within class, where if his interest isnt caught hell be tapping on the table or just speak to someone beside him. Jerara can sometimes be a little awkward and clumsy. He is eager to learn, and likes doing things where he can see a result. This is why in muggle school he always liked the sciences over things that were more theoretical like english. Hes got a bit of an adventurous spirit thatll grow as he becomes more comfortable in a situation. Jerara is not that outspoken, and he will never fight back against people. Hes far more likely to run.

OTHER SCHOOLS ATTENDED
South Darwin Primary


YEARS OF ATTENDANCE:
Jerara attended from the time he was six till he turned eleven.


HOUSE (IF APPLICABLE)
N/A


FIRST THOUGHTS:
Jerara doesnt remember much from his first day of school, he had prior to it been homeschooled, largely by his father who wished to give him the beginning of his education and did regularly intervene on the education on matters that he believed were being taught wrong. Jerara was exceedingly excited about his first day and he was exploring every part of the classroom, excitedly talking to the other students, asking countless questions and enjoying himself, if anything getting Jerara to work on that first day wouldve been incredibly hard. Jerara only really remembers having a lot of fun on his first day.


GRADES ACHIEVED
The school did not have formal grades, but Jerara did work hard, and frequently was praised for the work he did.

FAVOURITE MUGGLE CLASS:
Chemistry, though they didnt get to do much of it, it was definitely the class he most enjoyed, he liked reading about chemicals and like the way that chemistry along with the other sciences really tried to answer the questions of the universe. He loved doing experiments and researching them on the internet. He always worked incredibly hard in that class.


LEAST FAVOURITE CLASS:
Sports, though Jerara has always been quite an active child, curious enough to follow his interests, he has never been sporty, and doing sports in school was not his ideal of fun, he was quite clumsy and usually fumbled with whatever he had to do. There wasnt really in his mind any advantage of being good at sports so he just very easily gave up on it.


SKIPPING CLASS?:
It was never something that ever crossed his mind to skip class, and therefore he would not have. He loved going to school and he thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his classmates. It was for him the most fun that could be had, it was away from his family and just a time where he could enjoy himself. Hes close with his family but he has three younger brothers and it can be quite full on.

SCHOOL CLUBS:
Music and arts club was the only afterschool activity that Jerara ever took part in, it was the only one that he liked in any manner. It was his only time to really play instruments and grow better at playing them. Hed always been very good at rhythm and really the music club was his real way of relaxing after school before heading home to his parents and his energetic brothers.


POSITIONS ACHIEVED
None, the school didnt have positions for students to achieve, at least not in the lower levels of the school.

WAND
Knotted 13 Inch Sturdy Yew Wand with Mermaid Scale Core


WAND DESCRIPTION:
Length: A strange length for a wand and a number which symbolizes misfortune.
Style:The knots of this wand's original wood remain clearly visible - earthy, this style of wand is perhaps most traditional and closest to nature.
Wood: Yew wands are extremely powerful in both the dark arts and in battling against the dark arts: good and evil, life and death - the wand's wood straddles the in-between carefully and it is the wielder that draws it to one side or the other.
Core: As a core, mermaid scale assists wands in being helpful in classes such as Care of Magical Creatures and water-based spells. Though not a difficult core to obtain, mermaid scales must be freely given by the merperson in order to fully bond in the wand.
Flexibility: Sturdy: A solid wand for any witch or wizard - easy to use, and highly dependable.


THOUGHTS ABOUT WAND
Having no idea what a wand would really be, Jerara couldnt believe it when he saw them within the store, they were somehow nothing like what hed pictured, but still incredible. The wand that eventually, supposedly chose him, he couldnt believe it, it had a mermaid scale as its core, and the wood was beautiful, he loved the way it felt in his hand and he loved how incredibly he could feel his magic just focus on the wand. It was something he never would like to be parted from. Jerara can barely take his eyes off it, and doing magic with it, he knows will be incredible. The wand to him is the most incredible part of becoming a wizard.


SCHOOL:
Hogwarts New Zealand


FIRST THOUGHTS:
Jerara was simply put, stunned by the school, he had no idea really what would await him and yet it was so much more amazing than anything he mightve thought it wouldve been. He loved how it looked, how peaceful everything was, it created countless questions in his mind ones that he was sure to ask someone when he got the chance. He couldnt believe how incredible this place was and he was beginning to wonder about what else the magical world had hidden from the muggles.


HOUSE:
Ravenclaw


THOUGHTS WHILE BEING SORTED
Jerara was incredibly nervous, he had never felt nervous like he did when he was waiting to get sorted, his reading on sorting and the houses didnt prepare him enough, he had never been sorted before, never in such a manner, and his father had always taught Jerara to be proud of who he was, but as a young boy he wasnt quite sure who he was yet, and therefore felt very nervous. When the hat was placed on his head, he wondered how it was going to work, he had heard it could see inside his head but given his lack of interaction with anything magical he didnt really believe it. He was very nervous, but his mind raced with questions, and he was glad when he was eventually sorted.


SORTING POST:
Jerara couldn't believe where he was, he couldn't understand how this was the world he was now in. The boy had gone from a little house he shared with his family in Australia to this castle in New Zealand with a bunch of people who were all like him, magical, wizards, witches. He had learned so much about this world in the very short time he had known about it prior to this sorting, and honestly to him this world was incredible, he could move beyond the pictures that moved. He couldn't understand how such a society could function and be so big and yet be so unknown to him and his family. The boy rubbed his arm nervously, trying to resist the urge to really make it look like he was glancing about the place, trying to take in every minuet detail about this hall, this great hall. Jerara felt so out of place, his father had walked him to the train station and helped him be ready for the journey and he had just such disbelief that he was living in this kind of world now, that he was a wizard. His younger brothers all of whom had learned about what he was, couldn't seem to make sense of it either, he could tell his mother barely approved, but her focus was on his youngest brother, Adoni who was only a year old. The young boy felt in that moment that actually he'd like his family with him, he wouldn't mind the constant conversations from his brothers to help settle himself and make him feel more at ease in this new and strange place. Jerara followed the crowd, spotting that one girl he had met in amongst the people. The boy while nervous and unsure about this world was so ready to try and be a part of it, he wanted to be magical, he wanted to see what every part of this school had to offer, he wanted to ask constant questions. Jerara wasn't sure what was in place to help a new student and new person to the magical world, he hadn't read about any sort of introductory class that would help him understand certain aspects of the new life he was going to lead. Primarily he didn't know how to use a quill, parchment or ink, to him it seemed so dated, he didn't understand why his muggle phone didn't work around magic and why instead he had to use an owl, had wizards never thought about how amazing instant message was.
As the hat began to sing, it pushed Jerara's attention away from his own personal monologue about his interactions so far within the magical world, and to the fact that in front of him was a hat that was singing, it was singing. Jerara had thought the pictures in the books moving defied all logic but this was hat that moved and sang in a manner that Jerara knew wasn't preprogrammed. How many more incredible things would in this world? What did he had to discover? What wonders awaited him? How far into this world would he get before he didn't awed by things that were happening? The boy clapped loudly for the singing hat that was clearly the thing deciding his fate. He stared it down, watching as person after person was sorted. What he had learned about the houses didn't really help him in deciding where he wanted to be, or where he might end up. The boy though he asked question and liked finding things out didn't think he was smart enough for Ravenclaw, but that was the only house he felt he was unsuited for. but, perhaps the hat would think different. The boy was trying to figure out how the hat knew which house to place people in, and he was nervously rubbing his arm, thinking that if he was the only muggleborn wizard from this group they would all know what to do and he would just sit there with no clue. The hat would move but it wouldn't say anything until it had decided. Did all magical people just send their thoughts to the hat and it could in a matter of second figure out where a person was headed. Jerara had to figure that the hat some how with it's magic could read the minds of the students, that was the only thing that he felt rightly explained it, and he knew he would find out very soon since.
Tapsell, Jerara
At his name Jerara stepped forward, the now thin crowd of first year students parting to let him through. He felt his hands shaking as he took his seat, gripping the sides of the stool with a tight grip, so unsure of what was to follow. The hat was placed on his head, and he tried his best to calm down, quiet his redundant questions about how this was going to happen, how it was possible and how incredible it was that this hat existed. He waited nervously for the hat to make it's decision.


CURRENT YEAR:
seventh Graduated


PREVIOUS YEARS:
FIRST YEAR: Jerara was very nervous about his first year, given that he was suddenly in this new place filled with very odd things and magic. He had so much to learn and found the learning curve very difficult. He spent a lot of time in the library trying to just catch up on the basics everyone else knew. It was because of this he found a very firm friendship in Tristan Collins, who was very similarly bothered like him. During this year he spent a lot of time reading, and found that the magical library wasn't always giving him all the information he wanted. He joined a few clubs like the Brotherhood and took part in school events like Halloween, the yuleball and the valentines day dance, all of which he attended alone.
Second Year: Jerara was pretty pleased to be back at school, over the break he managed to get himself a small side job at the sweet shop. His schooling remained much the same, only he was finding things a little easier, and was certainly looking forward to new classes. He attended all the school events once more and participated in the duelling tournament, making it to the second round before being knocked out. This is one of his new favourite things to do. He worked hard, continued to read a lot and began to find himself really enjoying the dark arts books that he could find, He knew that this magic is wrong, but he does really enjoy reading the books the library has on it.
Third Year: Jerara was glad to be in his third year, mostly because of the new classes he was now able to do. The boy took on all the electives and it did prove to be a huge task for him. There was a lot to learn but he was happy to learn it. He worked hard throughout the year, and got closer to Ellie during this time too. He had a good year. He could've made more friends, but Jerara has really found a love for learning about magic. For doing and learning about all the different branches of magic so he was happy to keep at that.
Fourth Year: Jerara had an odd year, he was dating Ellie by the beginning and he loved that. He took part in school events as he always did, but had a real problem with how things were being taught. He began to realise as he took all the subjects that there were holes in the magic they were teaching them. Jerara was increasingly frustrated by this, and never more so than in his DADA classes where they did a brief glance at dark magic and that was it. He did well in his classes despite his thoughts, but hopes to find out more as the years progress.

GRADUATION POST:
Jerara had been looking forward to this, finally the end of school. Finally he was able to leave, finally, all of the hours of pointless reading about things he cared less about. He was looking forward to leaving school, figuring out his next steps and most importantly of all, reading all of the little things he hadn’t had the time for in school or had hit a deadend. The ravenclaw knew this maybe wasn’t the best time for his own personal feelings towards the education system but it was certainly the only occasion he’d gotten for it so far. Graduation. Where he would have to stand up and say something...something about this place and a send off to the classmates he’d had. He’d be happy to not talk to most of them ever again. He’d be happy if his only friend leaving this place was Tristan, since that had been his only true friend since first year. Oh how far they had all come. He sat politely with October as the head mistress began the ceremony, in a fashion that he had largely grown accustomed to in the last few years of having been able to actually go to the ceremony. He stood up with October and walked to the podium, allowing her to go first as he surveyed the hall. He’d almost invited Ellie, but had worried that she wouldn’t want to go and decided against it, none of his family could either afford or be able to go, so it was just him, with no one left to impress. No one left to act properly in front of.


Jerara listened to October’s speech, a classic graduation speech, filled with platitudes and empty statements. He was surprised to see that she was crying, he frowned a little at it, thinking that it was a bit much to cry over this, but perhaps her schooling, her seven years had given her more to cry over. Perhaps she would incorrectly miss this place. Though, she finished and it was his turn. He stepped up to the podium and looked over the hall, letting a little silence encompass the room. ”Welcome everyone,” he started, leaving another pause as he just looked about the hall, ”I’d like to start by thanking the professor’s for all of their work, teaching us only what we needed to know to pass exams and nothing more. I’d like to thank them for all of the pointless trips we took, I’d like to thank them for keeping all of those books in that restricted section well out of our hands. Our education system pitted us against each other, our memories of this place will always be jaded by the fights for who was first in classes, quidditch, duelling, house points, prefect and head people positions. Education should focus on learning for the sake of learning not for some reward, some pointless and meaningless award,” Jerara smiled politely as he spoke, ”Additionally fellow graduates, there is so much more that they never bothered to teach us, there are magical subjects we never even got the choice of looking at.” he couldn’t help himself really, he liked learning and the school had always kept so much of it from him. ”I look forward to leaving this place, saying goodbye to this time in our lives for good, because outside of these walls is a whole world ready for us to take over, that will allow us to strengthen our magic, to learn entirely new branches of it and to make our own choices as to what qualifies as good or bad magic. The world is ours for the taking, so, class of 2049, good luck out there,” Jerara stepped back with a little smirk. It was over now, he was done. He was done with this place anyway. He didn’t have anything to lose. Maybe he hadn’t thought he’d deserved the position, but he might as well make the most of this opportunity to speak up in front of an unfortunately captive audience.

BEST CLASS:
Divination, despite it being a rather new class for him he is thoroughly enjoying it. It's the kind of class that challenges him to think differently, it connects bit and pieces of what he knows already from his muggle life and adds that magical element to it. He likes reading cards and scrying, he knows he'll enjoy this class more than any other class he might do.

WORST CLASS:
Astronomy is by far Jerara's worst class. He utterly hates it. Jerara does every class the school offers him, and it is the one he has the most trouble with. History is a bit of a joke but this is more. It's just awful to him, teaching them too much and also too little. Showing them bits of amazing magic but then not how to do anything like it themselves, the books are all theoretical and boring. he just can't stand it.

------------------------------------------------------------
I cannot stand to look in the mirror ,
I'm failing
------------------------------------------------------------
DREAM JOB
Jerara's never had a dream job, he's always just wanted to keep learning. In his mind there's just so much he can learn for doing different work that tying himself down to a real job for too long would always just be bad. He's never liked it. He's never wanted it.

PROFESSION
Currently Jerara is a shop assistant working at Borgin & Burke's in Bleak Street. He doesn't have a formal profession.

SCHOOL EMPLOYMENT
During his schooling Jerara worked at Honeydukes, his family didn't have that much money and from a young age he had to support himself as best he could, the way to do this was via working and that was what he did.

THOUGHTS
Even though having to work over every break was a bit frustrating, Jerara liked being busy and that kept him from just being too aimless. It kept him away from his family and he was still able to catch up on all of the reading that he wanted to do. He was not limited by his employment and he didn't dislike it.

CURRENT EMPLOYMENT STATUS
Employed

CURRENT POSITION
Shop Assistant at Borgin & Burke's: This mostly involves keeping the shop stocked and selling items to people. It's a slightly sketcher store than ones he's worked in before but he likes it. He interacts with lots of interesting products.

THOUGHTS
Jerara likes his work, though he knows it's a little below his grades he's never been the sort of person fussed by that sort of thing. He's never studied hard because of the grades he will get - though he did of course study for his exams. He's always just been. the sort of person who likes to study and learn. Working where he is, is interesting, he meets and interacts a lot with different people that he wouldn't otherwise cross.

LENGTH OF TIME IN POST
Jerara started working there after he left school, in the winter of 2049.

WORK LIFE BALANCE
Jerara has a good balanced, achieved by the fact he doesn't work every day and gets paid enough to not have to work more than he needs to. He spends most of his time outside of work reading, he's always been an avid learner and it hasn't stopped just because he left school.

WORK ATTENDANCE
Jerara has never missed a shift. He isn't the sort of person who would.

CO-WORKERS
He knows his co-workers but Jerara has never been particularly social so he's knows them but hasn't bothered to get to know them.

PAST EMPLOYMENT
