Character History:

Personality

Valentin was a strange creature. Well-meaning, and genuinely compassionate, he does occasionally have something of a problem communicating with people. It's not that he doesn't talk, it's hard to get the man to shut up, it's that sometimes words come out sideways to his meaning. Offense when none is meant, or simply his words meaning something completely different to the person listening than he ever met. Perhaps it's his own strangeness or the hodgepodge of mannerisms he has picked up over his years of travel, but it does prove to be occasionally distressing. Opinionated, stubborn, and unwilling to back down from what he knows to be right, Valentin is not someone easily forgotten. Few things calm him, but those things that do he protects fiercely. Additionally, when someone has fallen into the category of 'student' he is utterly dedicated to their well being.

Timeline

  • 1959 - Born the third son of Dominica and Frederico Abarca, his mother being Mer, they had an interesting relationship, but it worked for them. Valentin grew up beside the lake that was his mother's home, and she gave him his magical locket when he was very small.
  • 1970 - Begins attending Hogwarts, is sorted into Gryffindor. Is obviously a talented student, and his classes go immensely well.
  • 1974 - Figures out the trick behind being an Animagus, is obviously a prodigy. His form is registered.
  • 1975 - Is granted a Timeturner for the purposes of his studies.
  • After school, Valentin sets off to find adventure on the continent. Goes so far as to style himself like an old world pirate, even, with the help of some friends. Obviously, there aren't a lot of sailed ships out of the high seas to be plundered these days, but they had a good time of their travels nevertheless. That is, of course, until they came across a cove that a group of Dark Arts practitioners had been using as a meeting place, experimenting the fueling rituals with blood, and even human sacrifice. This… Does not end particularly well. See, Valentin's never been one to leave well enough alone when it means protecting an innocent person, and these fucks had a child. A particularly nasty curse leaves him blind, though he and his friends did manage to save the child in question and return her home to her family in Belgium. Though healers at various magical hospitals tried, there has not been a way to restore his sight discovered.
  • 1980 - Meets Phillipe Fawley, falls in love. They are later married and have children.
  • 1990 - Is hired on at Hogwarts in the Transfiguration department, under Minerva McGonagall.
  • D-Day - Was already at Hogwarts prepping for the start of the school year.

Other Information

  • Transfiguration - Both the Transfiguration Professor and an Animagus, Valentin is particularly skilled at this type of magic. If you've any need of it, or help in learning it, he's your huckleberry.
  • Head of House - With Minerva becoming Headmistress, Gryffindor needed a new Head of House. Valentin was chosen for his dedication to the care and protection of students, even those of mixed bloodlines.
  • Half Mer - Valentin is Half Mer, and makes no secret of the fact. He can often be found in and around the lake in his off hours.
  • Familiar - Valentin has a standard Poodle by the name of Admiral that serves as both his Familiar and his sighted guide.
