The Trio + 1
Harry Potter
Harry Potter
Age: 36
Occupation: Currently Unemployed
Blood Status: Half-Blood
Despite being idolized throughout the wizarding world, Harry has managed to lead a fairly normal life. If a normal life involves regularly tracking down and capturing dark wizards. He happily married Ginny Weasley and the two have three children, James, Albus and Lily. The two boys now both attend Hogwarts.

Harry never finished school, but has managed to become Head of the Auror Department anyway. He regularly teams up with Ron and Hermione, who both work in the same division of the Ministry.

Political winds, change, however, and the new administration isn't very interested in dark wizard hunting. The recent Voldemort incident cost Harry his job, though it also cost the revived Voldemort his life.

Ron Weasley
Ron Weasely
Age: 36
Occupation: Currently Unemployed
Blood Status: Pureblood
Ron may have worried about riding on Harry's fame for years, but he earned his way into the Auror Department for his own magical prowess - demonstrated at the Battle of Hogwarts - despite having also never finished school. Ron married Hermione Granger shortly after she finished her extended schooling, and they have two children, Rosie and Hugo. Rosie recently started at Hogwarts.

Ron has issues with the latest Muggle technology to be adapted to the Wizarding World and has been unable to figure out how to tape a Quidditch Match. It was Ron, however, who killed Voldemort's revived mortal body.

Hermione Weasley
Hermione Weasely
Age: 36
Occupation: Currently Unemployed
Blood Status: Muggleborn
Not satisfied to follow the path of her two best friends, Hermione went back to Hogwarts to finish her N.E.W.T.S. and took additional schooling besides. After working for several years successfully promoting House Elf welfare (and marrying Ron), Harry and Ron talked Hermione into taking a job heading up the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, which contains the Auror Office. Working in the same Department affords many excuses for the trio to investigate Dark Wizard trouble together.

Unfairly blamed for lax security policies leading to the bombing of the Ministry by Muslim Wizard terrorists, Hermione was forced to resign her position. Ron, supporting his wife, followed suit.

Ginny Potter
Ginny Potter
Age: 35
Occupation: Senior Quidditch Correspondent for the Daily Prophet
Blood Status: Pureblood
Ginny graduated from Hogwarts a year after the Battle of Hogwarts and married Harry about a month later. At Harry's encouragement, Ginny tried out for the Holyhead Harpies professional Quidditch team and ended up playing with them for 6 years as both Seeker and Chaser. She retired shortly before the birth of her and Harry's first son, James. Later, writing for the Daily Prophet's Sports Section, Ginny was heavily involved with Viktor Krum's push to adopt Time-Rules Quidditch throughout the world's Quidditch Leagues.

Ginny is currently facing assault charges for punching the Minister of Magic in the face on wizarding television. The audio track was unfortunately damaged and did not see public broadcast.

The Students
Albus "Al" Severus Potter
Albus Potter
Age: 12
Occupation: Student
Blood Status: Half-Blood
House: Gryffindor
Albus is like a miniature version of his dad, save the glasses and problematic early childhood. Albus is good natured and well-behaved, but his older brother can bring out his troublemaking side.

Albus, along with his best friends (Rosie and Scorpius), has already seen more danger than most kids his age. They've fought a giant monster, inferi, and dark wizards. And they just finished year 1. All in all, pretty mundane for a Potter.

Rose "Rosie" Weasley
Rosie Weasley
Age: 12
Occupation: Student
Blood Status: Half-Blood
House: Hufflepuff
Rosie inherited her mother's brains, but got some of her father's neuroses, and has a tendency to panic slightly in stressful situations. Thus, despite numerous qualifications to join any other house, she managed to land herself in Hufflepuff. Whether she (and the rest of her family) can learn to accept this remains to be seen.

Rosie's neuroticism has only been increased by her first year at Hogwarts, but being briefly turned into a half werewolf helped a little. She tends to be as forgetful about schoolwork as her dad, but is luckily quite good at figuring out the tough problems on the fly, like her mom. Her hair is currently suffering from numerous curses.

Scorpius Malfoy
Scorpius Malfoy
Age: 12
Occupation: Student
Blood Status: Pureblood
House: Slytherin
Though the spitting image of his father, Draco, Scorpius was brought up without the constant badgering of pureblood babble and love of dark wizards. As such, he greatly resembles a normal kid. If anyone will give him the chance to show it.

Though picked on incessantly by James Potter, Scorpius has made fast friends with Albus and Rosie. It helped that they fought a giant monster together. Scorpius is an ambitious boy, and hopes to make people see the Malfoys as a great Wizarding family again. But in a good way!

James Potter
James Potter
Age: 13
Occupation: Student
Blood Status: Half-Blood
House: Gryffindor
James was named perfectly, for he is something of a mirror-image of his namesake, his late grandfather, James Potter. He's a sports and magic whiz and master troublemaker. James idolizes his father and desires nothing more than to have an adventure of his own. And, as the latest inheritor of the Marauder's Map, he's not willing to just wait around. No matter how much trouble he might get into.

James is a pro at nearly getting himself killed, like when he took on 4 dark wizards (including Voldemort and the Necromancer) at the same time. Fortunately, backup arrived swiftly. Though James picks on Slytherins (and Scorpius especially), he's grown attached to his pet garter snake.

Mac Irdee
Mac Irdee
Age: 13
Occupation: Student
Blood Status: Muggle-born
House: Ravenclaw
An Australian exchange student, Mac is James Potter's best friend, and fellow troublemaker. Though quite brainy, (he is in Ravenclaw) he finds more excitement following his mischevious buddy around the school.

Blue Hat Kid, (aka Carl Loodian)
Carl Loodian
Age: 12
Occupation: Student
Blood Status: Muggle-born
House: Ravenclaw
Carl is a computer nerd from a family of IT professionals. He's had difficulty letting go of Muggle technology at Hogwarts. As such, he's managed to shield his laptop from Hogwarts ambient magical fields and even gotten his Internet working. Though not close friends with any of the main characters, his real-time connection speeds have brought his fellow students key information that has led to them getting in danger. Again. But they did help save the day!

Tiffany & Ashley
Tiffany (red hair) & Ashley (black hair)
Ages: 16
Occupation: Students
Blood Status: Half-Bloods
House: Gryffindors
Tiffany (with the red hari) & Ashley (with the black) tend to define the word "fan-girl," latching onto various celebrities and worshipping the ground they walk on. Their general obliviousness helped to get them both bitten by Cagney in his werewolf form. They joined his pack rather eagerly before Cagney was subdued and they received the antidote before their first complete transformations and were subsequently cured.

The Muggles

Sheriff Ned
Sheriff Ned
Age: 43
Occupation: Law Enforcement
Blood Status: Muggle
Red-blooded Texans, Sheriff Ned and his Deputy, Bart, are in England on a "Sheriff Exchange Program," a good-will operation hosted by the British and American Governments as an experiment in different methods of law enforcement. As such, Sheriff Ned is alllowed to exercise whatever means he feels necessary to deal with criminal matters (at least, within some reason). Ned also possesses a strange resistance to certain magical effects, specifically those that affect the mind. Memory modifying charms seem to have no effect on him. Poor Bart is not so lucky...

A year of working with wizards has seen a lot of action for the duo. Ned briefly became a half-werewolf, helped killed a monster, arrested dark wizards, and was blamed for many problems by the Ministry of Magic. The current Minister is taking pains to get rid of this thorn in his side.

Deputy Bart Rodriguez
Deputy Bart
Age: 22
Occupation: Law Enforcement
Blood Status: Muggle
Bart may be just a rookie deputy with no magic resistance at all, but the constant mermory charms he's been hit with haven't done any real damage. His brain am feeling good now. Spooked easily, but not lacking in courage, the young Texan follows his mentor, Sheriff Ned, wherever he is called. Even if that means being forced to become werewolf bait by dressing up as a Hogwarts school girl in a terrible wig.

Bart may be sorely put-upon, but he's a quick-draw, a good shot, and a stalwart Texan.

The Villains
The Necromancer, aka Horatio Haglenorth Hufflepuff
The Necromancer
Age: Friggin Old (1500ish, by best estimate. Born shortly after Hogwarts was founded)
Occupation: Evil Wizard
Blood Status: Pureblood
A dark figure with dark designs, the Necromancer is a master of the Dark Arts, specifically those related to the creation of Inferi: corpses raised into unlife. He has commissioned the aid of the Black Knight and the Mercenary for a scheme related to one of Voldemort's destroyed Horcruxes, the Diary.

The Necromancer's schemes have been developing for decades, if not centuries. He is the inventor and perfector of the Horcrux, at least one of which protects his own life. As such, deathly magics have no lasting effect on him. A direct Avada Kedavra disabled him for less than a minute.

The illegitimate son of Salazar Slytherin and Helga Hufflepuff, he has long held grudges against his father, whom he blames for denying him his birthright. Through great pains, he finally opened the storehouse of the Chamber of Secrets, and, with information gleaned from the passed soul of his father, is well on his way to perfecting a spell he has long sought...

Thomas Drake, the Black Knight
The Black Knight
Age: 33
Occupation: Mercenary
Blood Status: Squib
A powerful armored warrior, the Black Knight is a master of magical enchantments. His plate armor is kevlar lined and enhanced with permanent Protego charms, rendering him nearly as tough as a full-grown giant in combat. His shield is further imbued with special reflecting spells that can richochet back onto his enemies. His magically sharpened sword can pierce most mundane magical defenses, as well as practical ones. Even more terrifying, he has mastered the feat of dragon-taming, commanding a full-grown Hungarian Horntail into combat situations.

Drake is a squib, unable to cast any spells on his own. His wielded artifacts aid him in channeling ambient magic into objects, powering his artificing skills. Though he and his cohort Medria have been overcome by Harry and company on several occasions, they have succeeded in hindering and wounding their foes long enough to achieve most of their goals.

Medria Darkwood
Medria Darkwood
Age: 29
Occupation: Mercenary
Blood Status: Muggleborn
A Muggle-born who didn't turn her back on the world of her parents, Medria has incorporated Muggle equipment seamlessly into her masterful use of magic. She wears similar armor to her cohort, the Black Knight, but carries a magically enhanced submachine gun rather than a sword. A blatant defier of magical regulations, she has criminalized Muggle and Wizard alike, covering her tracks expertly. A native to the United States, she has travelled to Britain for unknown purposes, but is likely wanted by numerous Muggle law enforcement organizations, who likely have little idea of her true nature.

Medria has enjoyed her tussles with Aurors, Harry Potter, and Sheriff Ned. The recent loss of her right eye to Harry's Sectum Sempra didn't distress her too much, but she does greatly fear death. Though she has killed, it is generally not her first inclination to do so, far more enjoying the excitement of battle and the thought of being tops on someone's enemy list. In other words, she's two bludgers short of a Quidditch game.

Voldemort, aka Tom Riddle
Tom Riddle
Age: 16 (deceased)
Occupation: Dark Wizard
Blood Status: Half-Blood
Revived from the torn pages of his diary and subsisting on the entrapped souls of the elder Malfoys, Riddle was a tool of the Necromancer. He was not fond of the situation, but Riddle was unable to reassert his dominance over others due to the precariousness of his existence. He aided the Necromancer in opening the Chamber of Secrets and penetrating the Afterlife, where he rebuilt his soul but failed to do the Necromancer's bidding in powering a Ressurection Stone. He was killed once and for all when Ron Weasley stabbed his comatose body and Harry, Ron and Hermione shattered the Elder Wand that was holding his soul together. His soul and body vanished from the Afterlife to another, unknown plane of existence, where he claimed that Death itself waited to do battle with him. Whether he could ever return from the darkness that awaits is unknown.
Arcturus Ronolphin Cagney
Arcturus Ronolphin Cagney
Werewolf Form
Age: 42
Occupation: Werewolf Hunter, ostensibly
Blood Status: Werewolf
A man once bitten by a werewolf, Cagney slowly lost his sanity to his frequent transformations. He began to believe that lycantrophy was a gift, not a curse. As such, he began experimenting with ways to control his wolfish mind, with rather considerable success. He can maintain his mind during his episodes, even wield a wand while in wolf form. His greatest obsession is with creating a pack of his own. He is currently a prisoner of the Necromancer, who thinks he may be useful.
Sihr Junihad (Magic Holy Warriors)
Ahmed (center)
Age: 27, 28, and 30
Occupation: Terrorists (one repentant)
Blood Status: Wizards of some kind
The three known members of the Magical Holy Warriors (Sihr Junihad), are also brothers. Ahmad (center) is the only one of the three to have revealed his name, though all three were taken into custody following their destruction of the Ministry of Magic and the deaths of 167 people. Ahmad repented of his actions in the aftermath and turned on his brothers, aiding Ron and the kids in capturing his brothers.

Heavily skilled in transfigurations and evocations, the brothers have also made use of some form of channeled magic that they have used to amplify spells through multiple casters. This is what they used to destroy the Ministry.

Whether the brothers are part of a larger organization is, at this time, unknown.

Supporting Cast
Arthur & Molly Weasley
Arthur & Molly Weasley
Age: 67 & 68, respectively
Occupation: Head of the Department of Magical Research & Housewife, respectively
Blood Status: Pureblood
All their living children are living on their own now, but the Weasleys stay busy as grandparents, and, in Arthur's case, skirting the boundaries of magical research on Muggle artifacts. With more time on his hands in recent years, and with helpful direction from Harry and Hermione, Arthur has attended some Muggle adult classes in technical matters and has become something of a mechanic. He now is usually seen wielding his enchanted wrench.

Arthur and George Weasley set themselves to specially repairing Sheriff Ned's truck, enhancing it with a number of useful enchantments. Among other things, it can turn invisible and warp within Apparation conduits.
George Weasley
George Weasley
Age: 38
Occupation: Owner and Operator of Weasley Wizard Wheezes, and a dabbler in independent magical research
Blood Status: Pureblood
George may have married and had a kid, but that doesn't mean he settled down. Weasley Wizard Wheezes now operates in mulitple countries and George is dedicated to making sure it remains a success. He also enjoys entertaining himself with new magical inventions. He hasn't given up on trying to uncurse his ear, thus far without success.
Draco Malfoy
Draco Malfoy
Age: 36
Occupation: CEO of Malfoy Transoceanic Shipping, Inc.
Blood Status: Pureblood
With his parents retired (and put into comas following Riddle's resurrection), Draco Malfoy took over the family business, the Malfoy Transoceanic Shipping Company. The source of the Malfoy family fortune, the business fell on hard times following the last Wizarding War as many businesses refused to work with the Malfoys again. Draco has struggled to rebuild the business from the bottom up, and restore the family name. His efforts have rubbed off on his son, whom he has tried to protect from less savory influences, including his own dark side.

Draco married Astoria Greengrass, who was quite happy to be rescued by her husband from the Necromancer's Mirror Hogwarts.
Teddy Lupin
Teddy Lupin
Werewolf Form
Age: 21
Occupation: Grad Student
Blood Status: Some part Werewolf
The grown son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks, Teddy has started work for an Experimental Transfiguration company, bringing self-enchancement to you! He is dating Victoire Weasley, who doesn't mind the recent discovery that Teddy genetically inherited his father's Werewolfiness. A natural werewolf and Metamorphagus combined, Teddy has gained considerably more control over his abilities and can now control his actions in Werewolf form.
Gerald Buffington
Gerald Buffington
Age: 54
Occupation: Minister of Magic
Blood Status: Half-Blood
A politician through and through, Buffington won election after Kingsley stepped down from office. Though he campaigned on "restoring sanity" to what he called a bloated defense budget, Buffington's primary goals have been reducing the number of Aurors and enacting his domestic policies. He is a master of spin and his handlers have been doing their best to make him a hero with regards to the destruction of the Minstry of Magic to terrorists.
Marcus Granby
Marcus Granby
Age: 35
Occupation: Secret Service, Acting Head Auror
Blood Status: Half-Blood
An effective combatant, though primarily the henchman of Buffington, Granby has seen a lot of success thrown his way. Following his rescuing of the Minster of Magic from the collapsing Ministry headquarters, Granby oversaw the capture of the terrorists responsible and the extraction of the survivors. At least, that's how the Daily Prophet reported it. He is acting Head of the Aurors following the suspension of Harry Potter.
Stanley Barklebolt
Stanley Barklebolt
Age: 37
Occupation: Auror
Blood Status: Pureblood
Barklebolt isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, as his "expert Muggle disguise" tends to demonstrate, but he is a good man and loyal to Harry Potter. He found the idea of Muggles being immune to mind magics terrifying, but has since worked directly and effectively with Sheriff Ned. He was wounded battling dark wizards in the Department of Mysteries, but is currently in Recovery at St. Mungo's. Barklebolt leads a 3-man team of Aurors, all of whom seem fairly competent at everything except dressing themselves.

Barklebolt has a son in Hufflepuff House at Hogwarts.
Matilda Pensword
Matilda Pensword
Age: 30
Occupation: Reporter
Blood Status: Half-Blood
A pushy, ambitious Reporter, Matilda Pensword works for the Daily Prophet's Newspaper and Live Edition. She especially enjoys tearing famous people down a peg or two, and will go to great lengths to get the story she wants.
Future Rosie
Future Rosie
Age: 22
Occupation: Future Badass
Blood Status: Half-Blood
A traveller from 10 years in the future, Rosie returned with her husband Bart to prevent a terrible future apocalypse. She is torn between breaking causality and actually doing what she came to do. She bears several scars, the origin of which are yet unknown.
Future Bart
FutureBart
Age: 32
Occupation: Future Badass
Blood Status: Muggle
Older and now sporting permanent stubble, Bart (from the future!) has been fighting the undead menace for some time. He doesn't understand all the whosits and whatsits of time travel, but he knows how it works in the movies. And he knows that those big damn heroes don't worry about paradoxes. Besides, somebody's got to save the day.

The Teachers
Minerva McGonagall
Minerva McGonagall
Age: 91
Occupation: Headmistress of Hogwarts
Blood Status: Unknown
Though she is getting on in years, McGonagall remains as keen of mind as ever. She runs the school as she used to run her classes, tight, orderly, and disciplined.
Filius Flitwick
Filius Flitwick
Age: 80s
Occupation: Professor of Charms
Blood Status: Part Goblin
Still the little smiling teacher of charms, Flitwick remains as he ever did, if not a bit older.
Rubeus Hagrid
Rubeus Hagrid
Age: 89
Occupation: Care of Magical Creatures Professor, Gamekeeper
Blood Status: Half-Giant
Still working at his longtime home, Hagrid has barely changed, despite his growing years. He remains black-haired and cheerful. And the Ministry has come to just look the other way (until something explodes) when it comes to the bizarre magical animal hybrids he's invented. Hagrid is still periodically visited by the love of his life, Olympe Maxime, when she can get away from the Beauxbatons Academy.
Lee Jordan
Lee Jordan
Age: 39
Occupation: Defense Against the Dark Arts Teacher
Blood Status: ?
Best friend to Fred and George Weasley and staunch member of the D.A., Lee ran the Hogsmeade division of Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes for a few years before eventually agreeing to take on the mantle of Defense Against the Dark Arts Teacher at Hogwarts, which he has held for a record-breaking four years. Lee's methods are sometimes frowned upon by the other teachers, as he greatly enjoys teaching jinxes, hexes, and curses, so long as they aren't TOO dark.
Neville Longbottom
Neville Longbottom
Age: 37
Occupation: Herbology Professor
Blood Status: Pureblood
Compared to the awkward boy who also went to Hogwarts, Neville would be almost unrecognizable now. Worshipped by female students throughout the school, Neville is now the head of Gryffindor house and the Herbology teacher. Neville married Hannah Abbott, but they had a falling out after the first couple of years. He remains good friends with the other former members of Dumbledore's Army.
Luna Lovegood
Luna Lovegood
Age: 37
Occupation: Divination Professor
Blood Status: Pureblood
Although she didn't even take Divination while in school, it didn't surprise many people that she was rather good at it. Even if most of her predictions were as ludicrous as the articles in her father's tabloid. Luna was briefly married to the son of Newt Scamander, the author of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." It turned out he didn't believe in Narglies.
The Potions Teacher
The Potions Teacher
Age: Difficult to say
Occupation: Potions Professor
Blood Status: Shrug?
A part goblin, part human (maybe), and probably part something else, the Potions Teacher is a gruff, surly sort who nevertheless is good at what he does. He does consider it part of the job description to take points from Gryffindor.
Argus Filch
Filch
Age: No one is entirely sure
Occupation: Janitor at Hogwarts
Blood Status: Squib
Still as crotchety as ever, Filch continues to roam the halls of Hogwarts, along with his surprisingly still alive cat companion, Mrs. Norris.
