Date of Birth: December 23, 2033
Class of 2052

Astrological Sign: Capricorn.
Capricorn is a sign that represents time and responsibility, and its representatives are traditional and often very serious by nature. These individuals possess an inner state of independence that enables significant progress both in their personal and professional lives. They are masters of self-control and have the ability to lead the way, make solid and realistic plans, and manage many people who work for them at any time. They will learn from their mistakes and get to the top based solely on their experience and expertise.
Belonging to the element of Earth , like Taurus and Virgo, this is the last sign in the trio of practicality and grounding. Not only do they focus on the material world, but they have the ability to use the most out of it. Unfortunately, this element also makes them stiff and sometimes too stubborn to move from one perspective or point in a relationship. They have a hard time accepting differences of other people that are too far from their character. A goat with the tail of a fish is created to face fear and create panic. It is the sign of decisions made to be protected from monsters in our minds, lives, and immediate physical surrounding. Always ready to transform into something that scares those scary things off, Capricorn speaks of each natural chain reaction of fear, where one scary thing leads to many others, rising up as defensive mechanisms that only make things worse. Immersed in their secrecy, they face the world just as they are – brave enough to never run away, but constantly afraid of their inner monsters. It is not easy to win over the attention and the heart of a Capricorn, but once their walls break and their heart melts they stay committed for a lifetime. Their relationships with other signs can be challenging due to their difficult character, but any shared feeling that comes from such a deep emotional place is a reward for their partner's efforts. Shown sensitivity comes through acts rather than words, and years are often needed for them to open enough to chat about their actual emotional problems. Capricorn is intelligent, stable and reliable, and this makes its representatives loyal and extremely good friends, standing in one's life as pillars on their way to their dreams. They need to be surrounded by people who don't ask too many nosey questions, know where boundaries are set, but also warm, open-hearted and loyal enough to follow their lead. They will not collect too many friends in this lifetime but turn to those who make them feel at peace, intelligent and honest at all times. Capricorns will set high standards for themselves, but their honesty, dedication, and perseverance will lead them to their goals. They value loyalty and hard work over all other things and keep associates with these qualities close even when they might be intellectually inferior. Concentrated and resourceful, this is someone who gets the job done, doesn't mind long hours, and commits to the final product completely.
Capricorn men are determined and ambitious people, who want to reach the top to get the rewards. He prefers reality over uncatchable dreams, but isn’t afraid to set some of their more realistic dreams in motion. His need for control is strong, and he could be judgmental towards his partners, expecting them to be something they really aren’t. His nature is wrapped up around accomplishment and responsibility and he often doesn't set romantic relationships on the top of his priority list. A Capricorn man wants to take charge and be the one to make the rules from the beginning. When starting a relationship, he will think about ways to respect the norm but also show his feelings, expecting the person in front of him to feel comfortable and attractive enough no matter the amount of affection he gives.

Note: Onyx has been struggling with his magic since the accident, and fails even the most simple spells. It's almost as if his wand is no longer loyal to him...

Whenever I meet one who carries a cedar wand, I find strength of character and unusual loyalty. My father, Gervaise Ollivander, used always to say, ‘you will never fool the cedar carrier,’ and I agree: the cedar wand finds its perfect home where there is perspicacity and perception. I would go further than my father, however, in saying that I have never yet met the owner of a cedar wand whom I would care to cross, especially if harm is done to those of whom they are fond. The witch or wizard who is well-matched with cedar carries the potential to be a frightening adversary, which often comes as a shock to those who have thoughtlessly challenged them.



Grandmother: Ruby Michaels
Great-uncle: Chalcedony Michaels
Uncle: Jayce Michaels
Aunt: Emily Walsh
Cousin: Ember Michaels
Cousin: Amethyst "Amaya" Michaels
Cousin: Jasper Michaels
Uncle: James Michaels
Uncle: Colin Marsh
Father: Jackson Michaels (deceased)
Mother: Sarah Corrins (deceased)
Sapphire Michaels
Brother: Jordan Harris

Onyx adores everyone in his family. He looks up to his grandmother and loves his aunt and uncle. His favorite cousin is Ember, as the two share a close relationship. He and Amaya ignore each other for the most part, but they have each other's backs. He looks at Jasper like a little brother and tends to be a bit overprotective. He misses his parents horribly. He tends to pout over them more than his sister, caught up more in the 'what-ifs' and the 'They'll-never-knows'. As far as Sapphire is concerned, his world revolves around her. He adores her, and everything he does is done with her in mind.


Kira Wolf: Kira and Onyx have been easy friends since the day they met. Even after his memory loss, Onyx always felt at ease with the brunette and loves to write to her and chatter endlessly about nothing in particular.

Arcturus Rabson: Onyx might not be able to remember how he and Arc met, but he does know that he loves the boy like he was his own brother, and is always excited by the idea of being able to see Arcturus. He thinks Arc is unimaginably clever and very warm and cuddly.

Jamie Derouin: Onyx met Jamie by complete accident when he accompanied his uncle on a photo shoot to Marseille, where depressed and feeling alone, Onyx had turned to Whiskey to ease his sorrow. Jamie found him, drunk and crying, and managed to return him safely to his uncle. It was a few days later before Onyx pulled himself together enough that he could go to thank the kind stranger, and apologize for his behavior, and despite trying to deny it, Onyx has finally admitted to himself that he believes in love at first sight. Onyx loves Jamie with all of his heart, and honestly hopes that Jamie will always be in his life.

Lost Relationships:

Chrysander Kaster: Onyx was hopelessly in love with Chrysander, and would have done anything for him. He loved Chry's bold nature and his sense of humor. Onyx didn't expect to find Chrysander or to care for him as much as he did. Breaking up with Chrysander was the hardest thing Onyx ever did, but he had meant for it to be simply a step back to give Chrysander the space he wanted to make him happy. Chrys's reaction of cutting off not only Onyx but his sister as well completely devastated him.

Isla Zephyr: Onyx adored Isla, and trusted her completely. He loved her like a sister, and would have gone to the ends of the earth for her. But after he woke up with his memory loss, she lied and told him they were a couple and that they had to keep it secret. He foolishly believed her, until the first winter break came and he was able to question her about some of his doubts. Upon finding out about her lies and her betrayal of his trust, Onyx was forced to step away from their friendship, heartbroken over her deceit.


School Life

Gryffindor (Last year attended 2051)
: N/A
Boggart: Jamie and his sister, neither knowing or caring who he is.
Ragdoll Cat
What it means: Ragdolls are one of the sweetest cats ever. They are so cuddly and want to be with you all the time. They will follow you around the house, playing gently with your shoestrings, charming everyone with their gentle and sweet personalities. While they may not be the most protective of cats, they will fill you with joy and happiness.

Mirror of Erised: Onyx firmly believes he would see he and his sister with their parents. Nothing would ever trouble Sapphire again. His parents would be his closest friends who knew everything about them and were proud of them. He would be married to Jamie, with their own children, and his parents just love Jamie like he was their own.
Plans for the Future:
Onyx only knows he wants to do something with music, with Jamie by his side.
Best Friend: Arcturus Rabson
Family: Sapphire, of course, though he's closest to her, Ember, James, and Jordie.
Love Life:
Onyx had a short 'relationship' once with his dorm mate Jacob Kingsley, though it was never announced publicly. It ended badly.
-Onyx remained fairly closed off after his fling with Jake until he met Chrysander Kaster at the Yule Ball. The two hit it off right away, and something about the young Hufflepuff really drew Onyx in. They dated for over a year until Onyx found Chrys with someone else. At first, Onyx thought they could make it work, but the more he thought of how long, how often, and with how many people Chrys had been cheating with, he tried to take a step back to give Chrys more room in their relationship so that Chrys would be happy with Onyx. Chrys didn't like it and cut Onyx completely out of his life, declaring he wasn't sure if he had ever even loved Onyx to begin with, leaving him devastated.
-After his accident, Onyx accidentally got drunk at a bar and found himself going home and spending a weekend with Ben Kaster, Chrys's older brother. Onyx and Ben had a few trysts over several months, until something Ben said triggered Onyx's memories and he realized that Ben was his ex's brother. Feeling ashamed and guilty, and in pain over the memories he'd uncovered, Onyx ran. He hasn't spoken to Ben since.
-Onyx met a Frenchman named Jamie Derouin, after Jamie rescued him from being drunk and alone in a bar in Marseille. Onyx went by Jamie's flat several days later to apologize, and Jamie invited him in for lunch. The two quickly hit it off, and if not for Onyx's reluctance and caution, would have been dating quickly. Onyx finally came to accept how deeply in love he was with Jamie, and after a lot of thought, he has accepted that he is dreaming of a future with the man. Onyx skipped over asking Jamie to be his boyfriend and just proposed instead. He's in no real rush to marry, content to believe that Jamie is his forever no matter what they call each other.

Sapphire and Onyx were born to Jackson and Sarah Michaels two days before Christmas. For nearly a year they were happy together with their parents, never apart. However, their parents met their end in an unfortunate accident, and the twins were forced apart. As Jayce and Emily already had one baby and another on the way, Onyx was sent to James and Sapphire to the youngest sibling, Myra.

Onyx grew up with his uncle, mostly just the two of them with scattered time spent with the rest of the Michaels clan. James and Onyx travelled the world, never staying in one place long. Onyx was very clingy, not wanting his uncle to leave him. Because of this, James homeschooled Onyx for the first part of his life.

Onyx was the one to rediscover Sapphire, finding out she had survived when he went for ice cream in Brightstone and was mistaken for his sister. He spent every day in Brightstone after, eager to catch her. It wasn't long before the two were re-united, and Onyx transferred into Hogwarts New Zealand in their second year to be close to his sister.

Onyx's school life was eventful. He made few friends in his years at school. He had a short fling with Jacob Kingsley, a secret that Jake never wanted to share, and it ended horribly. He and Sapphire took part in a talent show, and while they didn't win, he enjoyed the song they played and he felt it brought them closer together.

He met Chrysander in fourth year and immediately fell in love, and did his best to woo and court the younger boy. They started dating almost immediately and Onyx did his best to impress Chrys, always getting him little gifts and trinkets. Onyx was absolutely smitten, but his idolization of Chrys was anything but healthy. Chrysander was a player, and while he may have tried at one point to be true, Chrys quickly found himself seeking other company. When he was with Onyx, he didn't think of anyone else. But when he was with others, he didn't think of Onyx, either.

Onyx was blissfully unaware of Chrys' deviances, not knowing exactly how wrong things were until he caught Chrys in the arms of someone else in his sixth year. Upset, Onyx tried to take a step back, wanting to give Chrys space without actually losing him. Chrys took it as an insult and cut Onyx off completely. It broke Onyx's heart completely.

It was after the harsh fall out with Chrys that Onyx met Isla Zephyr. Despite his terrible attempt to flirt with her brother, he and Isla hit it off and quickly grew very close. She was his first real friend, and he adored her. She helped him through his break up with Chrysander, and by the time sixth year came to an end Onyx was slowly starting to feel more like himself again.

That quickly came to an end when as the break between sixth and seventh year started, the twins were attacked by their Aunt Myra. Onyx pushed his sister out of the way, likely saving her life, but in the process he was injured badly and lost all of his memories. Onyx was pulled from school, and put into physical therapy and later started seeing a mental health therapist as well. He started drinking heavily soon after he turned 17.

While he was still in the hospital, Isla came to him and told him they were a couple. He believed her, and tried to uphold a long distance relationship as she returned to school without him. He quickly realized that something was wrong. Fueled by a drunken night, and then just a general weakness and craving for closeness to someone, Onyx spent several months in a heated fling with Ben Kaster.

When Onyx realized his Izzy had lied to him, and about something so serious, it broke his heart. Upset, he went to Ben's place, but while he was there Ben said something that triggered Onyx's memories of Chrysander. Overwhelmed by the renewed pain of his relationship with Chrys, and the fact that Ben was Chrys's older brother that didn't know who Onyx was, Onyx fled from the apartment and never returned.

It was shortly after that incident that Onyx asked to go with his uncle to Marsielle on a photoshoot. Onyx ended up alone in a bar while his uncle worked, deeply hurt and upset, and it was there that Jamie found a very drunk, broken Onyx. Onyx went to Jamie's flat several days later to apologize, and the two quickly hit it off. After lunch and a walk about town, Jamie invited Onyx to his birthday party several months later. The two exchanged letters regularly, and after a full night of dancing the two wandered the streets of a wet, sleepy Paris.

They almost kissed several times that night, but the universe was against them. It made up for it, however, when James took a sick Onyx to Jamie and asked the frenchman to watch over Onyx while he was sick. The two spent the next week caring for each other, and by the end of the week they had both kissed and scheduled a first date.

The date went well, and after a while, the two progressed their relationship even further. Onyx decided he wasn't willing to date again, but he wanted a future with Jamie, so on the first set of his new job as a performer in a lounge, Onyx serenaded Jamie before proposing. The frenchman accepted and the two have been together ever since. They still have things to discuss and plans to make, but for the first time in his life Onyx truly feels as if there's somewhere he belongs.
