Design Your Quester

Recommended Posts

This is the place where you can introduce us to your adventurer! While you can certainly complete the quests ‘as yourself’, you can also create a bold hero to do the legwork for you.


For 25 rubies, introduce us to your hero in 100 words: their backstory, strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes. For another 25, you can draw or describe their physical appearance and the fashionable gear they wear for questing. If you use words to describe them, make it at least 100 long. Post your profiles, graphics and descriptions below.


Things to keep in mind:

There is no deadline or end date

Your hero can be an idealised or alternate version of your HOL self or an entirely fictional person

You can create more than one hero, though you’ll only receive rubies for the first

You aren’t bound to use your hero for each quest (you can complete them as yourself or as other characters you haven’t profiled)

You can draw on existing characters but you're receiving beans for creativity and originality for this part of the activity so please make sure your character is 'your own'. If you'd like to complete individual quests in a 'fan-fic' style with an existing character, you can (providing you credit their creator in your submission for that quest)

Your character can be a witch, wizard or muggle from any time period

Your character can have special abilities but please, no invincible, undefeatable paragons. I won’t award you full rubies for a task if you’ve made life too easy for yourself.

At least one of my heroes to act in this quest is a guy named Jack. Captain Jack, if you will!


Now, WHICH Captain Jack it is, that's sort of up to you?  Handsome, devil-may-care, with a smile for dangers and an ability to somehow get himself out of dangerous situations (and no one expected it ...).  He's somehow found out how not to die (BUT NOT LIKE MOLDY VOLDY), or at least, hasn't died in spite of being killed. (Maybe killed a few times...)

Abilities? Hmmm. Good with weapons, a certain amount of wit, but also he has the ability to just keep going. No matter what. 

Usually he's found in clothing which suits the time and place, but almost always that garb will include a pair of boots and oftentimes some sort of head gear like a hat. He's partial to coats ... especially if they have a bit of a flair to them when he walks.

Magical powers you ask? None that he admits to. As for more specific description of my bold hero doing the legwork. Let's start with legs. Yes, nice legs. Muscular legs. Legs that can do a lot of running! Trim torso and shoulders which might (by some) be called broad, and others might say who care, they suit him! Hair is a nice dark-ish colour. None of this blond stuff - nope! Sometimes clean-shaven, sometimes not. (Depends on where he is, after all.)

So, which 'Captain Jack' do you think he is?  :D

My quester has my name, Iverian Gnash, although she does not share all of my personality traits. Iverian's backstory is pretty straight-forward. She comes from a small family which consists of her mother and two siblings. She goes questing to get away from the day-to-day bores of life. Her strengths include running, jumping, critical thinking, and friendliness to others, and her weaknesses include climbing, fear of heights, controlling her temper at times, and forgiving and forgetting things in her past. Iverian likes snakes, some people, her best friend, and food :P. She dislikes some people, bugs, and arguing over trivial matters. 

Iverian wears stretchy leggings with a short skirt over top for ease at getting around. She wears a variety of tank tops and large t-shirts for comfort and coolness. Iverian wears the same pair of black running shoes that are very light and comfortable and can stick to things when she needs to climb something, which she isn't very good at. She has her hair cut a few inches above her shoulders which makes it very easy to take care of and to stick back in a ponytail when needed. She never wears jeans because she can't run and move very easily in them. Iverian always carries a small pocket knife with her which she finds very useful and a long piece of rope for attaching things.

Dario Brighton is a Hogwarts professor with a strong proclivity for nitid things. He can mostly be found roaming around the halls of the castle in search of things to get him distracted. During evening hours, he is most likely in his office on the sixth floor plotting castle blueprints for possible renovation schemes. Prof. Brighton claims the classroom just by the Transfiguration Courtyard. The annoyance he is currently facing is the distance between what he thinks is the best office in the castle and his classroom, which is making him petition the school board to approve his plans for more hidden passageways and an internal floo-network.


His field of expertise is Transfiguration, which he teaches during the morning hours. His students would probably define him as a bit demanding and on the stricter side, as he puts up high expectations from day one. Despite the sternness, he pours a lot of time and patience into his classes and is very protective of his students. He specialises in conjuration and vanishment. Though he also likes to dabble in duelling, especially dealing with defensive enchantments. He has never found his talents to involve potion-making, divination or herbology as he likes to face magic hands-on.


Because of his mastery of defensive enchantments, he was appointed Keeper of Grounds and Keys. He can be heard from a mile's distance walking across the hallways dangling a heavy key set in his left hand.


It is likely you've already heard of the formal dinner parties he hosts on Fridays, displaying the newest and finest sets of china he's managed to collect, making way too many analogies trying to explain the tiniest mechanics of Transfiguration and talking about his newest knitting project to his guests.
