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.

Family and Personal History: Breanna Trevelyan is a successful lawyer, who specializes in criminal law. She's a hard worker, since she came from a rather poor background, and had to work three jobs to get herself through university. She met her husband in a cafe where she worked at. George comes from a richer background and according to him, it was love at first sight (not so much for Breanna). He invited her for coffee and a beautiful relationship blossomed that day, much to the chagrin of George's parents, who wished for their son to become a renowned surgeon and marry a nice girl they picked for him. Only half of their wish came true.


Maxim was born at home in Cardiff, Wales. By that time, George fulfilled his wish to become a surgeon and Brenna was employed by a rather big law firm. Then, George packed up his family and left for England after he was offered a job at Oxford. Once at the great university Mr. Trevelyan had begun his job as a professor. While at home, Maxim was being taught in etiquette by his mother and all other subjects that Breanna thought her son should know.


When Maxim turned 11 years old, he received an odd letter. It was an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. His parents while taken by surprise, but embraced Maxim's new found ability with great gusto. George, especially, found his son's 'power' to be the coolest thing he'd ever seen. He'd even thought of Hogwarts as if his son was going to a superhero academy.



Maxim has a very good heart. It is actually often that he does what his heart tells him to do, than what his brain says. It may be dangerous at times and foolish, but he tends to listen more to his heart. He's very caring and loving towards all living creatures and plants, though he usually has some clashes with people because of his clumsiness.


Another Maxim's more pronounced characteristic is that he is very witty. He comes with small smart comments whenever he feels like it, and sometimes they tend to bring him in bad situations with older students or professors. That part of him is not very well-mannered. He's also a talker. He talks a lot and actually blabs about everything – even if he is in the company of a person, he does not like. The only time when he is quiet is when he is nervous, scared or sad. It rarely happens however, since Maxim is usually in a good mood. You can really call the boy naive. He is not only that, he is idealistic, and he believes that every problem in the world can be solved with love and friendship.


Like most boys Maxim is very messy. His room is floating with books, dirty socks and clothes. He does not like to clean up and always delays this gruesome task until his mother tells him to do it with one of his death glares.


His friends and family will always be a weakness for Maxim. He does everything he can to keep them safe and happy. He would willingly to risk his life for them if the situation called for it. To all of his closest friends, and people he is fond of, Maxim is fiercely protective. He has a code of conduct for himself. He's respectful of most people, especially women. He has a keen eye for details, he has a gift for remembering a person's normal gait, and notices when it's off. He's also very observant when he chooses to be. He has an ability to keep calm in situations that would have most other people hyperventilating. He does indeed feel fear in these situations, but he normally chooses to set that fear aside in such situations.



Maxim is a little small for his age, but that doesn't stop him at his endeavors. He sports a slight tan, but most prominent are his freckles that adorn his face. He has blue eyes and blond, short and slightly curly hair. His build is athletic, mostly due to running around, playing all sorts of sports with his mates.


When Maxim is off having adventures, he is dressed in comfortable, but functional clothing. The exact pieces depend on what he is doing, but mostly consist of think undergarments and socks, and then cotton short and long sleeved shirts and pants. He also carries extra pieces of clothing in his backpack, just in case he ever gets lost (and he does, sometimes). Maxim also never sets out without a survival kit that carries basic items such as first aid kit, matches and some other Muggle items.
