THE BASICS:
NAME:Matt Arthur Ward
NAME MEANING:
?
Matt: English form of Matthaios, which was a Greek form of the Hebrew name Mattityahu meaning "gift of YAHWEH".
? Arthur: The meaning of this name is unknown. It could be derived from the Celtic elements artos "bear" combined with viros "man" or rigos "king"
? Ward: From an occupational surname for a watchman, derived from Old English weard "guard".
HOMETOWN: Dunedin, New Zealand
AGE:36
BIRTHDAY:14 March 2007

NATIONALITY:New Zealand
BLOOD STATUS:Mixed Blood
SEXUALITY:Bisexual
RELATIONSHIP STATUS:Seeing somebody
ZODIAC SIGN:Pisces. Being a Pisces born on March 14th, you are defined by an experimental and passionate nature. While there are plenty of people who fear change, you are not among them. You jump at any opportunity to have a new experience and will try anything once. As a result of your willingness to experiment, you have had several different phases, which have combined to define you today. In all matters of life, you display great passion and intensity. This especially applies to your loved ones, who you gladly lend your time, energy and support.
ELEMENT:Water. Your sign's element pair is water and of all the zodiac signs, only the Pisces has a mutable relationship with the element. Water's influence over your personality is obvious when your adaptable and fluid nature is concerned. While your connection with water makes you a great communicator, it also allows you to understand the depths of emotion. When you experience strong feelings, water's influence allows you to gain emotional awareness. As you continue to embrace water's positive qualities, your compassion will grow, but be weary of water's negative qualities, which include moodiness.
PLANET: Neptune. The Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you receive a dose of Pluto's planetary power as well. Neptune, being the planet of refinement, is linked to your compassion, sensitivity and vision, but it is Pluto that can be credited with your power and transforming qualities. Your unique combination of planetary influences makes you more spiritual than the other Pisces Decan. Life's great questions, such as the meaning of life, are often on your mind. Your spirituality makes you quite intuitive, so in times when your mind leaves you confused, follow your intuition, as it one of your most valuable assets. Although deep thoughts dominate your inner workings, outwardly you are active and adaptable. With the help of Neptune and Pluto, you may have become a social chameleon. Take advantage of your ability to dramatically change depending on the situation or scenario.

FORMER EDUCATION:Hogwarts New Zealand
FORMER HOGWARTS HOUSE: Ravenclaw
FORMER OCCUPATION: Potioneer
OCCUPATION:Hogwarts Professor
WAND:
Curved 12 1/2 Inch Swishy Oak Wand with Essence of Belladonna Core
? Wood: Oak wands are excellently reliable no matter the situation they are found in - they withstand the greatest challenges and remain largely unscathed.
? Core: As a wand core, essence of belladonna is useful in Potions and Herbology work. The poisonous nature of this substance makes the wand more suspicious than most wands are of the wand caster. For this reason, wands with this core take a long time to bond with the wand caster.

APPEARANCE:
PLAY BY:Richard Ayoade

EYES:Dark brown.
BUILD:Average height and build.
STYLE:Matt often wears suits.

A LITTLE DEEPER
PERSONALITY:Matt is a very fun and casual man who enjoys cracking jokes and spending time with his family. He's a very curious person who loves to read as much as he loves having discussions with others about the things he reads about. Ever since his daughter was born, taking care of her has been a big part of his life. It made him more grounded and responsible, while still being a very laid back parent. He does spoil April sometimes, but he sees no harm in it.
HISTORY:Matt grew up in New Zealand, raised by a wizarding couple. He lived in the countryside with his parents for most of his life where he was surrounded by magic from a young age. Here he learned how to take care of magical plants from his mother, which awakened his passion for potions. Matt went to Hogwarts in New Zealand, where he was sorted into Ravenclaw. Matt really enjoyed his time at Hogwarts, focusing on the subjects he enjoyed most. His sister Amy was born when Matt was in his final year at Hogwarts, which means the two have a big age-gap, though the two are still close and he tries to look out for her.

He moved to the city after leaving school and secured a job in a potions lab. During a night out, he met a young muggle woman named Adelia Kolter. Their personalities were very different, Matt being laid back and relaxed and Adelia being driven and ambitious, but the two were well matched. After a few years of dating, Matt told her about the magical world, something she took surprisingly well. It didn't take long for them to get married. Matt was 25 when his daughter was born.

When April was six years old, Adelia and Matt split up. Adelia's ambition pulled her away from her family and into work, and the split between the magical world where Matt worked and the muggle world he would never fully be a part of aided this decision. The two are still on friendly terms, and neither of them regret the decision, though Matt does occasionally feel guilty about raising April without a mother figure.

After raising April alone for five more years, Matt met someone new at his daughters ballet class. Another dad picking up his own daughter. Matt was instantly charmed by Kyle's French accent, and after talking to him a few times he asked the other man out. The two started dating regularly soon and both told their daughters. Matt is still seeing Kyle and the two are happy together. They are both magical, though they didn't know about the other at first.
LIKES:Corny jokes, Prank items, walks in the forest
DISLIKES:Uptight people, spiders
GOALS:To raise April as well as he can and live happily with Kyle
FEARS: Losing the people he loves
STRENGTHS: Matt is adaptable and can fit in pretty much any situation, he's very good at getting along with most people and can talk himself out of situations if needed.
WEAKNESSES: Matt doesn't always know when it's time to stop joking, so he can come across as insensitive sometimes. He's also very bad at saying no to his daughter.
MIRROR OF ERISED: April grown up, happy and healthy. Himself and Kyle together in the background, married.
BOGGART:Losing April or Kyle
PATRONUS:A Frog
AMORTENTIA:tba
