PLACEHOLDER APP, IN THE MIDDLE OF UPDATING THE ART PLEASE WAIT FOR ME TO SURVIVE THE NEXT FEW WEEKS
Name: Rhubarb Jones
Blood Status: Half (Parents are both halfsies)
Physical Description: 4'7, 85lbs, mouse brown hair, green eyes, pale skin, scratches and scars on arms and shoulders from various birds
Personality: Rhubarb is dreamy and distant and very strange. All of his intentions are good even when his actions are not. Taking innocence to another level, to Rhubarb there is no 'right' or 'wrong' merely 'consequence' and 'action'. Because of that, the things that he does can be considered as cold, analytical, and emotionless. Your opinions are worth nothing to him as he would prefer to just be ignored rather than stand out.
Despite his vague nature, he's quite bitter towards those without magic. An avid lover of nature (Specifically avians), he firmly believes in 'the strong survive'. Because, he's pretty frail/weak himself, he takes all sorts of abuse willingly because he believes there's nothing wrong with that.
History: Heather and Nathan Jones were high school sweethearts from Hogwarts, bonding over their fond love and monthly subscription to the Quibbler magazine. Graduating, Heather became a consultant in the Spirit Division and Nathan found a career in Magical Post Inspection. They had five children, all raising them with good intentions, conspiracies, and superstitions. Their first daughter, Eglantine (19, Ravenclaw) currently is an intern at the Muggle Worthy Excuse department at the ministry; their next two kids were sons, one named Henry (17, Hufflepuff) just about to graduate with aspirations to become a writer for the Daily Prophet, and the other Barnaby (15, Ravenclaw) stressing through his OWLs. Their next two children, were their twins Rhubarb and Tabitha, and the happy family image was shattered when they found out that Tabitha was a squib.
While they raised all of their children with love, Tabitha was incessantly bitter that she didn't have what Rhubarb did (Other than the shitty name). Rhubarb was always taking care of Tabitha when his magic started to show, everyone believing his sister to just be a late bloomer. However when Rhubarb got his Hogwarts letter and Tabby didn't... well, they couldn't celebrate like they usually would. With no idea how to handle the awkward situation, Heather and Nathan always treated Rhubarb delicately, more mild mannered in terms of his magic because they didn't want Tabitha to be left out. Even though they harbored nothing but equal portions of love for the two, Tabitha still took out her insecurities and rage on Rhubarb - she was practically the same person, why was she the one who got the short stick?
Rhubarb quietly took it, secretly pitying his sister, growing more and more withdrawn. Their parents never let them leave each other and Rhubarb couldn't be with the other magical children because of the risk of Tabby becoming bullied or alienated was inevitable. When they bought him his owl, Skunk, other than his family, Skunk became one of his closest friends, developing a large obsession over all things avian.
Highly sheltered at home, when Rhubarb entered Hogwarts, he became outcasted - the boy with the squib twin. But any rumors fell to deaf ears as Rhubarb was more concerned with airy daydreams and just getting through the school year, content to stay in the Owlery during his spare time rather than make friends.

- Rhubarb is fascinated with all creatures with feathers, wings, and the concept of flying
- Save for quidditch, he's not athletic at all – and with quidditch, he gets distracted too easily
- Tabitha is the only person who can convince him to do things he doesn't want to. During first year, they tried to pull a switcheroo by sending Tabitha to Hogwarts instead but... it fell through quickly.
- He will clean up after you, putting things back in order
- he has a habit of shortening a persons name because he can't remember the entire thing
Oh right – the fact that he has a squib sister isn't a secret so if you RP with him, bullying and rejecting him is GOOD. You should totally DO THAT.
