Weight? about 170


Tattoos? None


Piercings? None


Birthmarks? None


Disfigurements? None


Scars? He has plenty of scars from taking a bludger to the body or from falling from certain heights, nothing too serious or noticable though


Do they have any nicknames? Where did they come from? Plenty of nicknames. To the Quidditch world he’s known as the “Father Figure” because he’s older than most players and tends to baby and look after the younger ones. He’s also called things like “Merlin” and “Dumbledore”, particularly by a Mister Felix Fortescue.

How do they usually dress? What do they wear to sleep? Do they wear jewelry? Jane is known for wearing his Quidditch robes. He rarely wears anything non Quidditch related, and he is uncomfortable in pretty much anything else. He wears boxers or sweatpants to bed, depending on the temperature, and he is not known to wear jewelry of any sort.


Is there anything about their appearance they wish they could change?Jane wishes he could be younger again. He liked how he looked back in his early twenties, and he would do anything to go back to that time. Because people make fun of him so often about his age, he feels like he doesn’t fit.


How would they look as the opposite sex? Like Nicole Beharie

What do they smell like? Why (do they wear the scent or does it occur naturally)? He naturally smells like sweat and the Quidditch Pitch. So sort of like fresh air and grass and that smell you get when you first walk out the door. Woodsy, kind of. It’s thanks to his being outside all day. When you catch him at the right time, he’ll smell like the alcohol he’s been drinking last.


Do they have an accurate mental picture of their appearance (how they see themselves versus how the world sees them)? No, Jane sees himself as an old man because of all the teasing. He wishes he looked better, younger. Wishes he was faster on the field, like he used to be. He knows hes losing his touch. The rest of the world still sees him as one of the best chasers, though, and many people find him very pleasing on the eyes.

Choose a different time period and describe what your character would have been like in that time period.

Imagine Jane being a settler to the colonies though. Imagine him being in the American Revolution against England. Jane being a revolutionary. He would be loud about his beliefs and a strong fighter, fighting for freedom. Thats about all I have to say on the matter

What are some of your character’s hobbies? What do they do with their time? Besides Quidditch, Jane enjoys playing chess. He also reads, but mostly magazines or informational nonfiction books.


Favorite color? Arrow blue- but mind you, it was that before he joined the arrows


Favorite music artists? Movies or TV shows? Books or authors? Actors?He prefers nonfiction books, books that will teach him something, especially about Quidditch or the past. History is a fun subject to him.


Political stance? Are they active in politics or do they not care? He doesn’t care much for politics at all


What are some of their pet peeves? People that don’t listen to him, mostly. And being called old. And people who use the muggle way to do something over the magical way.


What sort of gifts do they like? He hates anything Quidditch related because its so thrown in his face anymore. You’re a chaser for the Arrows, therefore your entire life must revolve around Quidditch, right?


What is their favorite time of day? Favorite weather? Season? He likes a nice, cool day around dusk as the sun is going down. He prefers summer weather because its better to play Quidditch in.


Where do they like to spend their time? The Quidditch pitch, of course. The Hog’s Head is his favorite bar though.


Favorite food? Favorite drink? Hot drinks, soft drinks, or alcohol? He doesn’t have a favorite food in particular, but he enjoys any type of fire whiskey.


Favorite animal? He doesn’t really like animals. He especially hates Wasps.


Do they have any pets? Do they want any? He has none and wants none.


What relaxes them? Winding down with a drink at the end of the day.


Do they have any bad habits? He’s a heavy drinker. Also tends to do stupid things while drunk.

Where did they learn their abilities? Jane went to Hogwarts and was a Slytherin. He played on the Quidditch team since his second year and had played Quidditch as a child. He was team captain since his fourth year. 


If they have an income, where does it come from? His parents are rich purebloods, but he makes most of his money from Quidditch.


Do they have a job? Do they like it? How do they feel about their co-workers? His only job is Quidditch team captain for the Appleby Arrows. He loves his job. He loves being team captain, chaser, and playing Quidditch in general. He loves his teammates too, although some of them annoy him to no end. For the most part they respect him, though.

Why do they have their resources? How long have they had them, and how have they served the character over time? (Ex. Contacts, money, political power, fame, etc.) Jane gets most of his resources from being a Quidditch player. He’s famous and rich, not to mention comes from a rich family. He has a horde of contacts because of both of these things, but especially because he’s a Quidditch chaser and the team captain of the Appleby Arrows. He can do almost anything he wants and get away with it, hence cursing a man and sending him to St. Mungo’s. He’s fairly certain he could get away with that by pulling the Quidditch card, though he’d much rather keep it a secret. 

Where does your character live? Why did they choose it, and how did they acquire it? How do they handle intruders (graciously? violently?)? Describe the space.

For the most part, Jane lives in a small one bedroom flat. It’s bigger than Frankie’s flat, though, and yet he ended up moving into hers. Her neither flat actually has enough room for the both of them, honestly, but he spends most of his time at Frankie’s and most of his clothes are there. He bought his flat on his own when he graduated from Hogwarts just so he wouldn’t have to live with his parents any longer. He doesn’t handle intruders well because he’s an Arrows player and most intruders are very creepy or there to do him harm. 

What are some of your character’s more notable merits and flaws (including physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, etc.)? How did they develop? How has this helped or hindered them in the past?

His most fatal flaw is his temper. He’s always had a temper since he was a child- it runs in his family. In school he was known for his bad temper and violence, but he learned to control it over time. Now he only gets violent and angry when he’s drunk, something he’s still known for. 

In the past, Jane’s anger got the better of him by attacking a fan that was giving him shit. He doesn’t like to talk about the incident, but he ended up sending the man to St. Mungo’s. He still hasn’t recovered. 

How are they with technology? Jane is awful with technology. He hates muggle technology, and doesn’t think it should be advanced into wizard culture. 


Are they specially qualified in any particular field? Would they be considered at the top of the field? He’s awful with technology. The only thing he’s really good at is Quidditch, in which he’s one of the best chasers around, and chess.


Have they ever been publically acknowledged for anything? (Ex. Nobel Prize) He made it to Team Captain of the Appleby Arrows. Does that count? They’ve won championships before


Is there anything they’ve deliberately sought to improve at? Just Quidditch, and maybe chess as a kid. 


Do they speak more than one language? Nope, he only speaks English. He’s boring.

What is their family history like? How does it affect them? How do they feel about their family? How does their family feel about them?

Jane comes from a pureblooded Slytherin family. He loves his family, he really does, but they don’t get along too well. It gives him a hatred of all muggle things, though he doesn’t mind halfbloods or muggle borns, unlike his parents. His parents love him and are proud of him, but once they find out he’s a criminal, they wont want him any more. He tries to keep that secret heavily guarded. 

What were they like as a child? What was their favorite toy? Favorite game? Playmates? Jane was a violent child. He liked to wrestle and put curses on his younger brothers, for the most part. Sometimes he could sit down silently and play chess, but mostly he had a lot of energy and a lot of anger. He had some good friends in school but lost contact with most of them after joining the Arrows. 


What did they want to be when they grew up? He wanted to be an auror, because it sounded like the best way to get his anger under control. He had no idea he would end up going pro in Quidditch, but he’s glad he did. He’d rather be playing Quidditch. 

Describe their best and worst memories from childhood.

Jane’s best memory is probably learning how to fly. His father taught him how to play Quidditch as well, on the same day, since he had a natural talent for flying. He loved flying and begged his father to come out and fly with him every day. 

His worst memory is probably when his brother became old enough to be a nuisance. It’s a general thing, but he does remember a specific time where his brother and he got into a fist fight and they both ended up in the hospital. He doesn’t get along with either of his brothers well, honestly. 

Where (and when) did they grow up? How did they view it as a child, and did that change as they matured? How do they feel about the place now?

Jane grew up in London. He never had strong feelings toward it one way or the other, but he finds its the place he always migrates back to after too much time away. He can’t really help it, he does like it there, no matter what he says about the place.

Do they, or have they in the past, had a mentor?What was their relationship with this person, and how has it changed since then?

Jane never had a mentor, unless you count his father. He doesn’t particularly get along with his father anymore, though. He’s a pureblooded supremacist, and Jane is not.

What sort of education have they had? Do they want more?

He went to Hogwarts and graduated, and doesn’t intend on getting muggle education at all.


Who was their idol growing up?

Again, this had to be his father. 

Who was the first person they fantasized about?

He doesn’t have any sort of recollection on the matter.

Who is their closest friend, and why? What do they like to do with this person? Jane doesn’t really have close friends anymore, unless you could count Frankie Westenberg. He really enjoys going out to have a drink with her, or just sitting at home and talking. 


Do they have any rivals? Who and why? Felix Fortescue. Felix always messes with him and he hates it. He can’t find a way to outsmart that asshole, besides how upset he got when he found out he had been sleeping with Frankie. 


Have they ever been betrayed? By who, and how did it affect them? He doesn’t have an outright memory of betrayal, although he’s positive that his brother could be counted into this category. 

What is their sexual orientation? Do they ever question it? He’s straight, except when he gets drunk. He likes to hit on guys when he’s drunk, but he’d never actually sleep with one.


When did they lose their virginity? Who to? Where? What was it like? His first girlfriend back when he was a teenager. He vaguely remembers her name now, but it was over the summer holidays. It wasn’t particularly pleasant, but first times rarely are.


What is their favorite sexual fantasy? Jane prefers heavily romantic things over kinky things. He would love a romantic night, with roses and candles, over anything else.

Do they have any particular fetishes or kinks? Nothing in particular. He prefers romance over kinks. 


What’s the strangest thing they’ve ever done in bed? He can’t recall anything strange. His sex life is relatively normal. 


Is there anything in particular that they won’t do? He doesn’t like the idea of bondage- not being able to hold his partner as they make love.


What are they attracted to in a partner? He likes blondes in particular, Leggy blondes. But he likes his women to be smart and independent as well. He hates a woman that relies on him for everything.

If applicable: who is their current partner, and what attracted the character to them? How did they meet? How long have they been together? What kind of a relationship is it? Do they have any plans for the future? He is in love with Frankie Westenberg. He was only physically attracted to her at first, but he fell in love with her personality. He loves that she is hard to handle and appreciates her temper, unlike most people. They met through Quidditch, but they first got together after a drunken night. They had a secret relationship until they were outed and forced to break up. Jane wants to marry her and spend the rest of his life with her, maybe have a couple of kids, but he has to wait until he retires and see where they both are at that point in their life. 


What would be their perfect date? A night out, having dinner, maybe dancing, and coming back to a candle-lit evening


Describe one of the character’s past relationships and what was significant about it. He never had good relationships when he was younger, and Quidditch then took over his life. His most important relationship was with Frankie, and he ended up losing her because he chose his team over her. He regrets it now, but knows there’s no going back- at least, not anytime soon.


Have they ever hurt someone they loved? Sure, he’s hurt his family before. His parents are upset that he’s in love with a halfblood. He’s hurt Frankie by choosing his team over her, and then coming back to her. He hurt his team by dating Frankie in the first place. 


Do they fall in love easily? Yes, he fell in love with Frankie almost instantly, but he thinks its the real thing. He’s never been so serious about someone before in his life.

What are their dreams? What do they want to do someday? His dream is to have a wife and kids. He wants a nice little family. It’s funny, because most people get a family and don’t get to go pro in Quidditch. He’s the other way around.


Are there places they want to go? Where and why? He doesn’t have anywhere in particular he wants to go. He’s happy where he’s at.

If these don’t apply already: do they want to get married? Have kids?Desperately


Would they ever consider adopting a child? Why or why not? He would consider it. He has nothing against adopting children, he just really wants a child. He may adopt and raise one on his own if he never gets married.


Do they have any prominent sensory associations? (Ex. the smell of their mother’s perfume, the sound of ice cracking under their feet as a child, etc.) Freshly cut lawn reminds him of home, because he was always outside playing with his brothers.

Who do they want to meet? He doesn’t have anyone in particular he would ever want to meet


What about them is heroic? He is a father figure to everyone, if he can help it


What would the character be like in their old age? A loving grandfather, who would do anything for his grandchildren, children, and spouse

Describe one (or more) plots you would like to do.

Frankie and Archie getting married and Jane having to sit through the wedding - this would be a good self para

Jane falling in love with someone else after Frankie- or thinking he was in love with someone else but leaving them for Frankie in the end

Stuck in a waiting room. Which magazine do they pick up? Quidditch Quarterly most likely

What is one thing in their past they’re ashamed of? One thing they’re proud of? He’s ashamed of the fact that he cursed someone into the hospital, but he’s proud of his accomplishments in Quidditch, such as being the team captain of the Appleby Arrows.

Describe one fight they’ve had in the past (physical or otherwise). He duels when he gets too drunk and angry. In one particular instance, he ended up cursing someone so badly that they wound up in St. Mungo’s. He never full recovered from that battle, nor did his opponent. 

What is one thing they feel strongly about? He feels strongly about his love for Frankie, in particular, how much he misses her when they’re apart. 


One trait they admire? He admires determination in someone, as well as independence. They’re both very important traits to him and he couldn’t pick one over the other.


What disturbs them? The thought of never getting to settle down and be a father and a husband.

Do the ends justify the means in their eyes? Never


Are they a leader or a follower? Why? Leader. He’s always been the one to make decisions and tell others what he thinks. 


What do they feel responsible for? (Ex. I owe it to the world to do this.)He feels like he needs to be the best team captain and Quidditch player he can possibly be. 

Do they believe that a person can redeem themselves from mistakes of the past? Yes, always. 


What scares them? Someone finding out about his darkest secret


How do they feel about death? Have they been significantly affected by it? Although he had never been affected by it, he’s a bit afraid of death. He just wants to do something significant so he will be remembered. 

Do they value faith over reason or vice versa? Reason over faith


Do they believe in an afterlife? He isn’t sure if he does or not.


Do they have any habits that reflect their beliefs? (Ex. regular prayer, vegetarianism, etc.) Nope.


Do they respect the beliefs of others? Always.

Would they be more likely to act for the good of one or the good of many? For the good of many, unless the one happens to be someone he loves more than life


Are they manipulative? Not at all


Choose a holiday and come up with a potential scenario involving your character and that holiday. Christmas with Frankie and the children, and its just adorable watching his kids open their presents. Or maybe Valentine’s Day and he and Frankie get into a big fight and end up splitting up. 

Is the character religious? What are their views, and why or why not?He’s not religious at all. He didn’t grow up in a religious family, so he isn’t sure what he thinks about religion.


How would they like to die? He would rather die of old age, peacefully in his sleep and with his family surrounding him.


Choose a person, historical or fictional, and write about a meeting between them and your character. My only thoughts lie with Frankie, as thats who Jane is almost constantly thinking about. Maybe their first meeting on the pitch, or a meeting years after they had broken up and Frankie and Jane were both seeing other people.

Name: Spade Volkov

Age: 32

Country of Origin: Russia

Face Claim: Sam Riley

Triumphs: Spade’s best quality is being loyal to those who deserve it. He doesn’t have many friends, but the ones he does have he is die-hard loyal toward. He would do anything for them, include give his own life. This probably comes from a mixture of being in the service and having no one care for him as a child, so he loves the few people he has. He also has the ability to look at a weapon of any kind and tell you about how much its worth and what era its from without having to do background research, and hes pretty good with technology.

Downfalls: Spade is a bit of a lecher. He’s into both girls and guys, particularly those younger than he is. Late teens and early twenties are his favorites. His english skills aren’t perfect, though he tries, and his habits are bad. He’s a bit of a drinker and a smoker, working all day just to spend his money on alcohol and cigarettes. He’s not particularly good with people, either. He tries really hard, but he just says the wrong thing at the wrong time. Even back home in Russia he was like this, so it isn’t just his English skills. He’s also not too bright and can be fooled easily, because of this he doesn’t trust strangers. 

Dreams: Spade’s biggest goal is to stay alive. He’s used to living every day wondering how he will get his next meal thanks to his childhood, or wondering what tomorrow will bring thanks to his time in the service, so he’s not used to having stability. He also makes quite a few enemies that are out for his life, so as long as he is alive, its a blessing. In his short term goals, he would also like to make enough money to keep himself sustained with spare for alcohol and tobacco, but he’s more focused on having enough to live.

Fears: Spade is afraid of death. The concept of death terrifies him, although he will lie and never admit to it. He has been afraid of death since he was a child and was threatened by his mother on a day to day basis. He’s scared of having to go back into the Russian military, or the military of any kind to be honest, because his experience was less than pleasant. He’s also scared of fire, thanks to the burns on his chest from a bomb explosion, and has a slight fear of other people because hes so used to being taunted. 

History: Spade was born into a large family on the outskirts of northern Russia. He was one of the youngest children and born without one eye. Superstition caused his mother to hate him and attempt to kill him, but he was saved by his father at the last moment. This was how he was given the name Spade, or the Russian word for it anyway, because his mother had attacked him with one. It was his father who gave him this nickname, because his mother refused to name him.

Spade grew up poor and mistreated by his family. He hated being there and joined the military as soon as he could, figuring that it would get him out of the house and into a solid life. Unfortunately for him, the other soldiers treated him terribly because of his missing eye and poor background. He was from a part of Russia that the others deemed “for the poor” and didn’t want him around. He was discharged when he was caught in a bomb explosion, leaving the front half of his body burned. His chest is the only area that never recovered, still scourged with burn marks.

He was paid for his recovery and used this money to travel to America, figuring he would have a better life there than in Russia. In America, they wouldn’t judge him for what part of Russia he came from. He ended up in New York and had no money to travel any farther than that, so he settled down in a crummy apartment and lived life like he had lived in back home- drinking and smoking. He got work in a factory in New York that paid him enough to live with a little extra, and has no intention of leaving his job or home now. His life is good enough as is.

He spends his free time in Club Galleria because the people there seem to accept him. It’s a place where he can smoke, drink, and hook up without much extra energy expended, making the place ideal for him. He spends almost all of his freetime there, when hes not working long hours at the factory.
