Curly 14 Inch Flexible Rowan Wand with Boomslang venom Core
|Length: A little on the longer side of things, wands of this length are slightly more uncommon and not easily forgotten by others.|
Style: Great care was taken in crafting this wand's wood to spiral to its point, giving it a beautiful aesthetic quality.
Wood: 'Rowan Gossips' - there may well be truth there, as a Rowan wand is excellent at protective spells: its owner will live to gossip! This wand calls to the pure of heart - no known users of the dark arts have held such a wand.
Core: Wands with a core of boomslang venom are good for use in transfiguration work. It is known to boost jinxes and hexes.
Flexibility: Flexible: Not easily broken, this wand performs under strenuous circumstances with little effort - though how well it performs is ultimately up to its weilder.
Leif was born on the 25th of March, 2032.PLACE OF BIRTH
He was born in Fredrikstad, Norway.ZODIAC SIGN
Aries. As the first sign in the zodiac, the presence of Aries always marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent. They are continuously looking for dynamic, speed and competition, always being the first in everything - from work to social gatherings. Thanks to its ruling planet Mars and the fact it belongs to the element of Fire, Aries is one of the most active zodiac signs. It is in their nature to take action, sometimes before they think about it well. Their challenges show when they get impatient, aggressive and vent anger pointing it to other people. Strong personalities born under this sign have a task to fight for their goals, embracing togetherness and teamwork through this incarnation. Aries rules the head and leads with the head, often literally walking head first, leaning forwards for speed and focus. Its representatives are naturally brave and rarely afraid of trial and risk. They possess youthful strength and energy, regardless of their age and quickly perform any given tasks.HOUSE ASTROLOGY
Hufflepuff Aries. Hufflepuff Aries have an extreme abundance of energy; however, the usual Hufflepuff tendency to work hard out of duty is modified by the Aries tendency to value play over work. Therefore, expect long periods of playfulness and seeming indolence punctuated by brief, manic bursts of industry. These Hufflepuffs may also be more ambitious and socially aggressive than average, making them clear leaders in their House. Their emotional warmth, open hearts, madcap sense of humour, and quirky independence will endear them to many people, but their naivety makes for easy exploitation by more ruthless sorts of people. ELEMENT
Fire. The Fire element is masculine or yang, and is active and outer expressive in its basic nature. It corresponds with the Jungian typology of Intuition. Fire is a radiant form of energy that brings light to the world around it, enthusiastic and excitable, self-oriented, impatient and essentially optimistic. It is represented in the signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Fire people are honest to a fault, freedom loving and often insist on their own point of view. They live in the idealism of great thoughts and deeds.PLANET
Mars. Mars is the planet of outward activity and animal passion. It rules Aries and is exalted in Capricorn. This fiery planet is masculine in action, versus softer more receptive Venus. When strong in the chart it can indicate a volatile temper, and also great courage. Its position indicates how your personality will assert itself, and what modes of activity will stimulate your physical energies.

Hogwarts New Zealand, 2043-2050.
Psychology student, 2050-2053.HOUSE
Leif was sorted into Hufflepuff.THOUGHTS
He was happy to be sorted into Hufflepuff because that meant he would be in the same house as his sister. Leif has always enjoyed being a Hufflepuff and wouldn't have traded it for anything in the world. SORTING POST
|Leif was absolutely thrilled to go to Hogwarts, mostly because of the stories his sister had told him about the three years she had already been at the school. Every time she came home during a holiday she would tell him whatever he wished to hear, followed up by other stories. Needless to say the boy had heard more than enough to know that he'd be having a far better time at the school than he would at home. Not that anyone could blame him, it was hard being the only boy at home, escpecially since his father was away most of the time and Freya spend the majority of her time at Hogwarts. That just left his mother and him. He didn't dislike his mother, but it was about time for the boy to get away from home and make some new friends.|
Making his way into the Great Hall amongst the other soon to be first years Leif looked around and smiled. Never in his life had the kid seen such an amazing place as Hogwarts, which ofcourse isn't too hard to understand seeing as the boy had never left the house a lot. Yet, even after the stories his sister had told him, Hogwarts exceeded all of his expectations. Once they reached the front of the hall the group of students came to a stop and Leif tried to control his nerves. He wasn't nervous very often, but as far as he knew sorting was quite a big moment in the life of Hogwarts' students and he was quite anxious to know which house he would be placed in. He was soon to find out though, as the Sorting Hat called out his name and he was forced to make his way over to the stool and sit down. Here goes nothing.
"I think you'll find that there are plenty of good friends to be had in HUFFLEPUFF!"
David Jacob Ødegard.RELATIONSHIP
Leif looks up to his father a lot, as he is a role model to both him and his older sister. He admires tha fact that he always makes time for them, even though he's a busy man, and he just has a strong bond with his father as he is his only son.
Whilst his mother has been his teacher as well as his sisters, she always seemed to be a lot nicer to Leif than she used to be towards Freya. Leif doesn't dislike her, but he has a strong bond with his sister and hates that his mother gave her such a hard time.
Freya Raghnild Ødegard.RELATIONSHIP
Ever since the Odegard's moved to New Zealand the bond between these two siblings started to grow stronger. They got even more close when they both attended hogwarts. Leif had been ecstatic to be sorted into the same house as his sister. After graduation Freya was a huge help to Leif and he couldn't (and wouldn't want to) imagine what his life would've been like without his sister.
Leif was born in Fredrikstad, Norway. He was the second child and last child his parents had. When Leif was young his father wasn't as busy as he later got to be and would often take Leif to ice hockey games, being his biggest supporter when the kid decided he wanted to play himself as well. They were mainly a happy little family, although the tension between his mother and sister has always been present. After Leif's father got promoted he got reposted and their family had to move out of Norway and into New Zealand. Leif and his sister never went to school but rather got homeschooled by their mother. Asides from the kids he used to play hockey with Leif never had much friends as a kid, which is why he was so excited when he was finally able to attend Hogwarts so he could go to a real school and make tons of new friends.
