He was a quiet child when he was very young, but as he grew so did his exuberance, and he wound up quite popular at his primary school, always cheerful and having fun. He modelled himself a lot after the hosts on childrens afterschool programming like Sticky TV and What Now, and his goal to be a role model to others like they were started very young.

Trophy Showcase:
First Year

Coming to Hogwarts was a bizarre and thrilling experience for Kauri, who took his new role in this magical world in stride. He threw himself into learning all the magic he could, enchanted with it all. He also joined the Brotherhood, hoping to make a few new friends, but his closest new friend came from outside the club, April Ward. He also became good friends with an older student, Xavier Jefferys, when the two of them accidentally wore matching costumes on Halloween. Kauri's year was filled with fun, learning, and friendship, capped off by entering the wheelbarrow race with April. They didn't win, but the duo were proud of the effort they put in.
The train ride, the trip up to the castle, everything he had done thus far today felt to Kauri like he had walked straight into a storybook, but none of it compared to the sight of the great hall as he entered with the rest of the first year group. Floating candles, enormous tables with hundreds of students, bright banners and a ceiling that seemed to go on forever... it was otherworldly, and a delighted laugh escaped him as he followed the rest of the first year group, gazing around the room in wonder.

Kauri was so enthralled by everything he was seeing and hearing (a hat that could SING!) that the names being called out quickly blurred into one another and faded into the background, the familiarity of hearing his own name called jolting him back into the fact that this new magical world was real life.

"Tipene, Kauri!"

Startled, Kauri hurried over and practically leaped onto the stool, buzzing with the excitement of being sorted. Who would be his new friends, his classmates and companions? Which of the tables stretching before him would he call home? His whole future was about to start, a future he had never dreamed could be real, and the excitement was almost too much to sit still.

"This hat can do a lot more than sing! I think you'll do splendidly well in GRYFFINDOR!"

Second Year

In Kauri's second year, magical life in the castle was beginning to become routine. Remembering how difficult it had been at times for him to adjust to his new home, he began offering first years tours around the castle, showing them around and telling them what they could expect from their new classes. He also continued to be involved with the Brotherhood of Magic, enjoying club activities and making friends with other members, both in and out of meetings. Putting in hard work on his studies and spending time with friends, Kauri had another great year.

Third Year

Returning to Hogwarts for his third year, Kauri continued his tradition of helping first years get settled in the castle, happy to help people feel more at ease here. Early in the year a boy Kauri had met through Brotherhood, Tristan, began becoming more friendly towards him, and to Kauri's excitement Tristan asked him to the Yule Ball. As thrilled as he was by the invitation, Kauri's spirits took a blow when his best friend, April, reacted negatively. She saw Tristan as sleazy and didn't want Kauri to have anything to do with him. The two fought, and Kauri was lonely for most of the rest of the year without her. He was incredibly happy with Tristan though, having a fantastic time attending both the Yule Ball and Valentines Dance with him. He also really enjoyed his new school subjects, especially Care of Magical Creatures and Divination. In the Christmas Holidays he was finally able to convince his parents to let him get a Puffskein, after being denied a dog for years, and he lovingly named his new pet Tamati. Other than missing April Kauri felt like everything in his life was perfect... until it all came crashing down around him. He encountered Tristan kissing another boy in the hallways, and the previously warm and kind boy turned cold and harsh, shattering Kauri's heart entirely. Miserable and struggling to put himself together, Kauri reunited with April and tried to focus on his studies, heart broken by the betrayal.

Fourth Year

Doing his best to brush off the pain of the previous year, Kauri threw himself into helping new students the moment he arrived at Hogwarts. It was a good distraction, certainly, fromt the fact that far from being able to avoid Tristan, he now had to work with him in his new role as Social Chair for the Brotherhood. Kauri was honoured to have the job though, and did his best to put up with Tristan politely when he needed to. After enjoying the bittersweet fun of his last year of matching Halloween costumes with Xavier, Kauri threw himself into his studies, finding a real knack and love for Divination. The year was tarred somewhat though by puberty hitting Kauri full force, his voice ricocheting at every given moment and embarrassing him every time he tried to talk. At the end of the year the Brotherhood held a movie night, and Kauri took the guiltiest pleasure in giving in to Rory Fergusson's encouragement to throw popcorn at Tristan. Just as it seemed the year was ending peacefully, though, Kauri saw Tristan close with the same boy he had been kissing the previous year and was thrown into turmoil, not knowing if the two were simply friends now, or if it was still romantic, and he needed to warn Tristan's new girlfriend. With no idea what to do, Kauri was relieved for the year to end, to avoid the situation while he decided what to do.

Fifth Year

Kauri had an unusually eventful holiday before his fifth year, first attending April's father's wedding as her guest, and then being hired as an ice cream scooper at Florean Fortescue's. He had known his fifth year was going to be a busy one, with OWLs to worry about, but Kauri was shocked when upon returning to school he was named both a Prefect, and President of the Brotherhood. Determined to live up to his new titles, Kauri threw himself into his duties full force. He struggled a bit at first, staying up late enough to patrol, and that strain combined with his studies made him very tired for the first part of the year, though he did his best to keep up with everything. As he adjusted to his new schedule, Kauri had an unhappy experience in Transfiguration class, where lessons experimenting on animals tested his morals. As a result of some soul searching, Kauri became a vegetarian. At the Yule Ball he ran into a fellow prefect, Rose Holland, and had a really nice evening with her. He was beginning to develop feelings for Rose, but as she had had a breakup recently didn't want to put any pressure on her. He waited to ask her out in a rose message on Valentines day, and though it didn't go quite as Kauri planned, he was delighted when she accepted. They had a nice time at the dance, though their relationship remained platonic for the moment. As he was preparing for OWLs, Kauri added yet another thing to his teetering workload, pursuing seer lessons he had always wanted, to discover if he had any true gift in his favourite subject. He worked hard and completed his OWLs with excellent grades, pleased that he had completed such a difficult year, and looking forward to the next as he and Rose grew closer.

Sixth Year

Kauri's sixth year started off well, as after attending a party in the holidays he and Rose finally started to date officially. Thrilled with his luck in love, Kauri threw himself into school life full force, working hard in all his classes, continuing his seer lessons with Professor Chamberlin, and helping his fellow students out. The year hit a substantial bump when to Kauri's shock, the fact that Tristan had cheated on him so many years ago was revealed to the entire school, along with the revelation that Tristan had cheated on many other people as well. Kauri felt betrayed and embarrassed, as well as incredibly guilty that he hadn't warned anyone Tristan dated after him. He tried to apologise to October, to no avail, and despite his anger, did his best to comfort Tristan, again with negative results. He was in a slump emotionally until the rose deliveries came, and he had the opportunity to help Rose organise his favourite event on the Hogwarts calendar. Bringing so much happiness perked Kauri up and he thought he would be able to finish the year happy, but things took an unexpected turn as a prank pulled by his girlfriend gave Kauri doubts about the future of their relationship.
