Half of my heart is a shotgun wedding to a bride with a paper ring, and half of my heart is the part of a man who’s never truly loved anything.
► Early Life:
If there is one word that describes Elphias’ childhood it would be crappy. He was poor, very poor, like lived in a shack and worked really hard to manage to get food poor and just like every stereotype his dad was a drunk. Though he was not the beat your kids kind of drunk, he was just the kind that turned into a lump and did nothing. His mother was an overstretched woman trying to work hard to provide for the family and care for him. He was an only child and from a young age found it easier to just stay out of the house as often as possible, but he had a hard time making friends so he was alone more often than not. Going off to Hogwarts was a blessing for him, and the small sum that the school provided for it’s poorer students and muggleborns to buy books was a godsend to his family meaning he often had fewer and much worse quality books but more food on the table.
► Hogwarts Life:
Elphias continued his distance from humanity at Hogwarts finding it hard to make friends often and not really being very good at talking. He didn’t know how to live in the castle and early in his first year he was completely marked apart. He caught dragonpox the summer before his first year. He managed to live through it but at school he still had the marks even if he was not contagious it still gave him marked skin with a greenish hue. Most students were afraid of that coloring and the strangeness and kept their distance making his spend most of his time with Professor Dumbeldore, whom was a teacher at the time and whom Elphias got along with well. As the years went on it cleared up and he was a handsome boy but he never forgot the distance the other students gave him thus never connected whit them keeping Albus Dumbledore his only friend, though they did get on very well for someone who was significantly older than he was. All through school instead of making friends, he worked hard in classes graduating as the top student of his class.
► Adult Life:
Even before graduating Elphias was offered an internship at the ministry which he gladly accepted. He knew that was the place to make money and he swore to himself he would never be poor again. He worked hard making his way up quickly in the ranks and making no friends as he gained power. He kept his companionship with Dumbledore and kept on pleasant enough terms with people around him but never truly made connections. In the first war he was in the order because he knew what a change like that and a society like that would be for the outcasts and no matter what he was still and outcast.
After working on the Wizengamot and helping condemn many evil wizards he continued his work in the Ministry in an office of power and moderate to high comfort. He had plenty of food and hardly had to go without and enjoyed his life and recently purchased a nice house in Hogsmeade, preferring the feel of the small town even with the long commute.
Elphias isn’t very good at connecting to most people. He isn’t a trusting man and he prefers to keep a distance than to get himself hurt. When he does make a friend however he is a very loyal and strong friend who would do anything for them. He has a strong sense of justice and will to fight for what is right and secretly, hidden away far from anyone’s eyes, he has a soft spot for outcasts and anything that seems defenseless and needing of his protection. He likes to protect the weak and help the helpless, it makes him feel useful and important and for him that is a rare feeling.6:31pm
