THE ROLEPLAY: https://pokecharms.com/threads/the-wizarding-world.20017/

It's 2018. Voldemort is dead. Hogwarts is still as famous as it was before 1994. It's a perfect time for the Wizarding World. However, few know, that another villain, possibly worse than Voldemort is secretly rising to power. Agnes Delarosa, usually nicknamed 'You-Know-Two', is thought to have been a minor Death Eater who has used Voldemort's weaknesses to continue on from him.

However, for now, what a good time it is to be at Hogwarts.

The main Pokecharms rules, you must follow, of course.
I will allow stuff like bullying in the RP, as it is a school, of course, but it won't be tolerated in the discussion.
For romance, nothing past a kiss.
For gore, just don't go into detail please.
I would prefer it if your character is a first-year, but I will allow second-years.
Put a spell incantation in the Other of your bio, and use italics.
If you would like to take a teacher, or character, ask underneath your bio. If they are good with the plot, and aren't already taken, I will say yes. However, stick to their personality. (For example, don't make someone like Neville (professor of Herbology) be super confident or something).
Oh, also, 'mudblood' is totally fine to use, seeming it's a fictional word.

Kaleb is based off of myself. Also, later in the RP, will we be getting into spells like the Patronus Charm? Or the art of Animagus?
@Jodie.xox Just noticed. Edit your post, after re-reading the rules. Until you correct your bio, I can't accept you. Sorry to notice this now, rather than earlier.

@StormingCobra55 Accepted. Can I ask, what are Michael's Ravenclaw qualities? (*Kaleb, not Michael)

Also, about the using a canon character, I will use the ones that aren't used. However, I will be taking McGonagall, Harry and Hermionie.

His middle name is Michael. His first name is Kaleb.

Ravenclaw is the house that corresponds to Brains. Gryffindor is Bravery, Ravenclaw is Brains, Hufflepuff is Kindness, and Slytherin is Cunning. Kaleb’s IQ of 145 means he definitely fits in with the Ravenclaw students.

Gender: F
Appearance: Maddi is taller for her age, with fair skin, freckles, and blue eyes. Her natural hair color is a light brown, but she keeps it a pale pink shade using a spell her eldest cousin taught her just before she got on the Hogwarts Express.
Personality: Maddi is certainly an extrovert, and is very friendly. She is the also type of person that can get hurt easily because she can form strong one-sided bonds with people(meaning she will feel extremely close to someone but they don't always necessarily reciprocate it). Maddi is a little bit of a people-pleaser, but she won't hesitate to yell at someone if they insult or harm her friends.
Skills: Drawing and writing, singing. Quick thinking
Blood Status: Half-blood

The beginning didnt exactly make too much sense to me. We enter the Platform and suddenly all hell breaks loose with spells flying everywhere? Where are the Aurors? I need a bit of explaining so i can understand why this person is even here.

Age: 11
Gender: Male

Other: Expectonus Patronus

Pet: Owl
Name: Ethan
Gender: Male
Appearance: A Snow Owl, though he hates Harry Potter's guts, he still thinks Snow Owls are very elegant. The only difference is it's green-tinted beak.
Personality: Sometimes, on it's way out back to the Owlery, it will swoop down to peck the heads of Gavin's enemies, a very humorous act to Gavin.
Backstory: It was actually taken in from the wild as a baby when Gavin was in the yard, it had a broken wing, but within months, it learned to fly, and stayed with Gavin through gratitude.
Other: It is truly quite smart, but keeps it's distance from the School Owls.
For anyone new, when we enter the platform, it’s chaos with these stranger wizards and witches casting bad spells on everyone, we all run to the train, and then sit down, currently Gabi, Bellamy and Samuel are in a compartment talking, you can join in there if you want, or go to another one and talk to others before arriving at Hogwarts @Pokesweeper @Cloudswift @MihajloJedi

ay, i like the look of this, so i'd like to request to join.

House: Slytherin
Name: August Colwell
Age: 11
Gender: Male
Appearance: What could I describe about an average preteen boy? He's short, scrawny, and baby-faced. He has short dark brown hair with a large cowlick in the front, dark green eyes and pale-ish skin.
Personality: He's clever, witty, and can think on his feet. While he may be rather shy, he's very good at reading a situation, and he's highly ambitious. Despite this, he's actually very kind and timid, usually keeping to himself, but is unafraid of presenting himself and his opinion. When being open, he can sometimes come off as rude and snarky, though he really just wants to learn and make friends.
Skills: He's very charismatic when not shying away, and more intelligent than many would give him credit for. He's a fast learner, and can be manipulative.
Blood Status: Half-Blood
Backstory: I'd rather develop this throughout the rp, if you don't mind.
Other: Sectumsempra!
The only Hufflepuff ;-;

Also, how are characters in different houses going to get interaction time? Like Gryffindor's got it figured out, and Slytherin at least has two characters, what about Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff?
