There are eight fields next to the avatar (200x300 px only) in the application. We've provided detailed instructions below to help you complete each correctly. We use these fields to track ratios and are looking for succinct, specific details. Please read carefully.
Choose from one of our nine usergroups HERE
This is where you type your character's specific occupation. Be succinct and don't sweat the details. Some examples of occupations are potions professor, architect, and the Hog's Head dishwasher. Keep it to one line of information.
HOUSE & STATUS:
This is where you type your character's house or former house and their educational status. Some examples are as follows: Gryffindor alumnus, Slytherin dropout, Beauxbatons alumna. Characters should attend schools that provide education to residents of the country where they came of age. You may invent a school if canon hasn't provided one, but please don't contradict existing canon regarding known wizarding schools
Spell out your character's age.
Your character's blood status must be one of the following: pure, tainted, half, muggleborn, muggle. More info on blood status may be found in the FAQ
. Remember that pureblooded families have become very rare (and considered very bigoted) since the days of Harry Potter.
SPECIES AND/OR ABILITIES:
For most characters, this field will simply read "witch" or "wizard" or the gender-nonspecific "wix."
However, if your character has special abilities
or is non-human or part-human, include that here instead after reading the bestiary
in full. Werewolves, vampires, and animagi should all note whether they are registered with the Ministry. Animagi should not note their animal form here. Be sure to include how/why your character developed their skill or status and how it impacts their life. No student animagi will be permitted.
Thanks to Pottermore, we have access to lots of info about wand woods and cores. It's a lot of nerdy fun to pick one out, and it can say quite a bit about your character! We suggest using the HP WIKI
as your guide. An example of this field is as follows: blackthorn, thestral hair. Vampires should note whether they possess a wand or not.
PLAYBY FIRST AND LAST:
List the first and last name of the actor or model you plan to use to represent your character. We love diversity amongst our characters; please consider using a less common or PoC playby!
