I was just about to update it, anon! It can be found HERE.
As cliche as it sounds, follow your heart, anon! Addison is one of our most wanted characters and we would love to have her join the mix, but we would also happily accept a male OC. The choice is up to you and thank you for your interest!
For the full acceptance procedure, you can go HERE! Though, after the next acceptance wave, we will most likely take a break from accepting applications. Our event Operation Riot takes a large amount of planning on the parts of both the admins and the players and we want everyone to have an opportunity to get their character involved. Any characters accepted too close to the event date would not be able to participate and we do not want anyone feeling left out. So if you are planning to join Our Legacy, now is the time!
We previously had a Colton FC in the roleplay and he played a key role in many characters’ lives and development. To avoid confusion, we have retired his FC.
CLOVE ATWOOD, HUFFLEPUFF
↳ 17 → Half-blood → Sixth Year → FC: Shailene Woodley
Past: The Atwood family was once a prominent and influential family in the wizarding world until they fell into financial ruin decades before Clove was born. Her grandfather gambled away all of his inheritance and made many controversial statements about muggles learning about the wizarding world and working cooperatively with their leading figures. He was seen as a disgrace to the family name and the extended family cut off him and his family entirely. The man was unable to repair his own broken reputation, but his only son sought to restore the prestige of the Atwood name on his own terms. He married a muggleborn and actively spoke out against keeping the bloodlines pure, both acts seen as an even greater disgrace by his estranged family. However, the Atwoods became influential in circles of progressive wizards who shared the same beliefs that they did with the help of the Ministry positions that both Clove’s parents held. By the time Clove was born, her name and legacy was one to be proud of once again because of her parents’ actions and not because of old money. This is a great source of pride for Clove and she views both of her parents as heroes. One of her greatest goals in life has always been to make them proud and be a respectable carrier of the Atwood name.
Raised happily in the world of magic, Clove was flying a broom and learning Ministry politics from a young age. She often travelled with her father and mother to the Ministry when she resisted staying home with the house elves and nanny. Politics and the inner workings of the Ministry fascinated Clove and only made her view her parents with more pride for working in such a place. The circles her family ran in taught Clove to respect muggles and to not look on muggleborns or half-bloods with any amount of disdain. Considering she was a half-blood despite being raised in a traditional pureblood way, it was not a difficult task for Clove. Unfortunately, her positive outlook on muggleborns and half-bloods had a negative effect on the way she viewed purebloods. Despite being raised with many, Clove sees many purebloods as being spoiled and vain with a wish to continue blood purity. If her parents noticed this prejudice, they never sought to correct it as their pride in their daughter was as immense as her pride in them and they viewed her as a perfect child. They were thrilled when her letter from Hogwarts came and happily saw her off on the Hogwarts Express. Clove was sorted into Hufflepuff, a surprise as both of her parents were Gryffindors, but not one that was unwelcome. She was eager to prove herself and she was secretly happy to be away from what she perceived as the very loud personalities in Gryffindor. Clove proved herself to be capable of making friends quickly and favored Defense Against the Dark Arts immediately. Hogwarts was her home away from home the minute she step foot inside the castle walls and that still holds true.
Personality: Strong-willed and opinionated, Clove radiates confidence and commitment to her ideals. Never one to conform or follow, Clove prefers to be up front and center, listening and sharing eagerly whether it is in the classroom or at her table in the great hall. No one can ever fault Clove for a lack of passion in what she believes and she invests everything in the causes she takes up for herself and for those around her. Many question why Clove was not sorted into Gryffindor with her natural leadership abilities and lack of timidity when it comes to speaking her mind, but Clove has always valued hard work and fair play and that places her firmly in Hufflepuff. Despite holding true to loyalty and honesty, Clove comes off as very intimidating to those who do not know her well and even her closer friends. Clove prescribes to the phrase the one who is heard is the one who yells the loudest and she puts all her effort into having both the first and last word on any given subject. It is never her intention to make people feel inferior, but her need to be proven right often clouds her judgement. For all her confidence, Clove is a sensitive person who does not enjoy failure and her pursuit to lead for the common good can waver in the face of her strong emotions.

RHYS SUMNER, RAVENCLAW
↳ 17 → Pureblood → Sixth Year → FC: Alex Arnold
Past: There were only two things that Rhys had to know as a child: one, don’t go into his father’s study, and two, normality was boring. The Sumner family, housed in the country in a wizarding community, was a cluster of relatives that, from the outside, didn’t seem to make much sense. While Rhys had a mother and father, the majority of his time was spent with his uncle, a man that lived just over the hill in a house that had been magicked underground (a preventative measure, his uncle would tell him, against Voldemort). Rhys loved his family - they were an eclectic mix of Ravenclaws that drifted across the country - vagabonds, professional tourists, performers - and called Rhys’ home their own. He had cousins that he could go a year without seeing before they turned up married; he had an aunt whose skin was so tattooed that she could sit Rhys down for a day and only get through the stories of the one’s on her left arm. Everyone said that the Sumner family was crazy - that there was one screw loose in the gene, and no good would come from any of them. But Rhys knew differently: he knew that his family were odd and not like those of the others that lived in the community, but that didn’t make them crazy, and certainly not worthless. They had holidays of their own creation, and his father’s work in spell creation often meant that their house was on fire, the source of loud explosions, or billowing purple smoke into the sky. Yet it was never dull, and Rhys grew up loved, entertained, and allowed to develop his own sense of self.
It was in this way that Rhys grew up, cultivating his own interest in spells and inventions, when he turned eleven and was sent to Hogwarts. Sorted instantly into Ravenclaw - the Sumner family alma mater - Rhys was surprised to find that many of the students in the house were just as odd and weird as his family members were. He looked up to the older students, who were more liberal with their quirks and interests than the shy first years he dormed with, and was often seen tailing them around, fascinated. Rhys’ family and their history was often sniggered at by his peers, namely those in the pureblood circles, but it never bothered Rhys, whose sense of self-confidence and esteem had been developed past breaking point. Housed in Ravenclaw, Rhys found himself growing into the kind of person who stood alone, and was proud of their talents: which, in his case, was invention. He could take something apart, and assemble it completely new after only studying it for an hour or two. He created objects out of others for functions that his friends needed - objects imbibed with a little bit of magic, but mostly the genius of his own mind, to fulfill a purpose. Rhys slipped into a world of his own making, and he looks forward to holidays where he can go home and show his family.
Personality: Rhys is a chipper, intelligent, and eccentric young man, with a lot of ideas to share with the world. He’s enthusiastic about the things he likes - such as spells or mechanics - but can sometimes be rudely dismissive of things that don’t interest him, like the mindless gossip mill that often takes hold of Hogwarts. He sees life as something to be captured and made better; he’s a fixer, and if there’s a problem, he’s always more than ready to throw a handful of solutions at it. Rhys believes in being proactive and helping yourself, and often he has little to no sympathy for those who whine and do nothing about their situation to get out of it. This can make him seem callous to those who don’t know him well enough to know that he simply wants people to take a stand. He believes in individuality, and he’ll appreciate someone’s passions or skills, even if they don’t interest him personally - he longs to learn about them, and listen to the stories of people’s lives, should they have the time. While Rhys is eager and inventive, he is not all-knowing or a genius in everything; he struggles with book work and theory, and finds it hard to settle himself down for long periods of time to study, instead preferring actively doing and making.

SHILOH McCARTHY, RAVENCLAW
↳ 16 → Pureblood → Fifth Year → FC: Hannah Murray
Past: Being a McCarthy carries expectations that every member of the prestigious family must live up to. A McCarthy must never disagree with the Ministry, perform indecent actions, squander the family fortune, or marry outside of their social circle. Shiloh’s father was no exception to those rules. His marriage was not founded on love and trust, but on greed and convenience. The McCarthy family had always wanted to secure the connections that Shiloh’s mother brought into the union and it was decided that her parents would marry without so much as asking either party. To disagree would be viewed as an act of disobedience and neither wanted to be shunned from their families as they had seen happen to so many of their friends. Unfortunately, life did not give Shiloh’s parents a fairytale ending where they fell in love despite the marriage being arranged. The two clashed terribly on every issue from what food to buy to how to raise their daughter. Shiloh had been born with the hope that she would make the marriage more bearable, but it only plunged the family into more turmoil. Her mother would scream that her father was irresponsible and inattentive and her father would yell back that her mother was coddling their daughter and she would never be able to stand on her own two feet. Shiloh was incredibly sensitive to the fighting as a child and would hide in the attic until it was over, but she learned quickly that her greatest escape was the outdoors.
The latter years of Shiloh’s childhood were spent rediscovering what had been unknowingly ruined for her by her parents. A child in such a broken home should have been raised to view the world as one filled with only hate, but Shiloh found solace in the outer reaches of her family’s property, picking apart plants and watching the patterns of birds. Soon, nature was not enough and Shiloh began smuggling things from inside the house to her secret spots and fiddling with them until she forced a reaction. Magic items left little to be desired and Shiloh began persuading the servant her family employed to bring her muggle objects to fiddling and break. It was Shiloh’s favorite pastime and what kept her interest in the world alive while her parents’ relationship continued to spiral out of control. An even greater sanctuary was presented to her when Shiloh received her letter to attend Hogwarts. Shiloh had guessed as she walked up the stairs to be sorted that the hat would place her in Ravenclaw and her assumption was proved correct. She had dreamed of the peace and quiet that the house would offer her on the train ride to the castle and she would have been shocked and disappointed if she had been placed anywhere else. Upon settling into her dorm and Hogwarts life, Ravenclaw proved to be everything that Shiloh had hoped for: a place full of likeminded people who sought to answer the world’s most puzzling questions. Though she may not number among the brightest students in the house, she always feels at home among the eagles.
Personality: Youthful and innocent have always been the words used to describe Shiloh. She has a genuine curiosity for how objects work and a fascination for the world around her. Shiloh is perfectly content spending long hours walking the grounds and exploring small alcoves, but she can be just as happy staring at an object for over an hour and trying to figure out what exactly makes it tick. This makes Shiloh a very gifted problem solver and she is always searching for the most out of the box way solution to a problem or the most unique way to use a particular object. It can be difficult to draw Shiloh into the world of the living, but she proves to be a bright and cheerful conversationalist when a person gets her going. Conversations with her can be frustrating at times as Shiloh’s mind always seems to be moving a mile a minute. She will break off into long tangents when a person only asks her how she feels about the weather. It is very difficult to predict what she will say next as her brain makes the strange connections that no one else would have thought of. Shiloh is always looking for new things to explore and learn, but the knowledge she prefers to pick up is often not found in a textbook or a traditional classroom setting. Her grades fluctuate depending on whether or not she deems a subject worth learning. Shiloh has great potential to succeed, but her greatest challenge has always been applying herself in all areas, not only a select few.

LEVI BARTLETT, HUFFLEPUFF
↳ 17 → Half-blood → Sixth Year → FC: Suraj Sharma
Past: The first few years of Levi’s life was spent on a boat with his family, who lived a nomadic life, which they called “free spirited.” After his mother, a muggle, married his father, a wizard, the pair took off from their home and never looked back, mostly due to the anger that their union caused from both sides of the family. They were in love and thought little of the consequences: young and foolhardy, they bought a boat, magicked it to be bigger on the inside, and lived out of it for two years. It was an easy life, sailing around the world with the help of magic to keep the boat afloat and undamaged; they saw sights and could sail away whenever things got too difficult or dull. The only obstacle that came into their lives was the birth of Levi, a little boy with wide eyes and an infectious laugh. His parents hadn’t planned for a baby, and it certainly hadn’t factored into their lives for a life together. But they loved him - they loved that he looked so much like his father, but his eyes were all his mother’s - and they would have done anything for him, including selling their boat and settling down. Levi never remembered living on the boat as he grew older though he was always told countless stories of his parents’ adventures - of their time in Italy, sailing through Venice, or the time they’d been caught in a storm and his father had to cast a Shield Charm to protect the three of them from capsizing. Levi grew up in an apartment in the city, as his parents couldn’t bear the dull monotony of the suburbs and still longed for excitement from the sights and sounds of the bustling town life.
Fed on a diet of adventure stories, romance, and danger, Levi grew up a boy longing to add to the collection of tales that his parents had already started. The only problem was that Levi was timid - he wasn’t bold like his mother or fearless like his father, and the older he got, the more he realized that he would potentially be a great disappointment to them both. He saw his opportunity when he turned eleven and received his letter to Hogwarts - he wanted to get into Gryffindor, explore the grounds, and make trouble, just like his father had done. Levi wanted to make his parents proud by being just like them, but instead he got a great shock by being sorted into Hufflepuff, a house that he’d heard his father laugh about once or twice. Shame filled him, and he didn’t know how to owl his father and tell him what had happened, so he lied. Levi told his parents that he’d gotten into Gryffindor and was having a marvelous time - he constructed stories of his adventures, his make-believe friends, and even detentions he’d received for being caught. It was all unraveled in Levi’s second year when his mother found a Hufflepuff scarf he’d left out while on holidays, and he was sat down and told very firmly by his father that there was no shame in being a Hufflepuff - the only shame was in not being who you are. Since then, Levi has come into his own, embracing his house and talents for what they are: he isn’t the thrill seeker or daring boy first in line, but the follower, the carer, and the supporter. He records the adventures to then pass onto others, in a way, and with this role, Levi is incredibly happy.
Personality: Though his father reassured him that there was nothing wrong with being a Hufflepuff or recreating the adventures he’d had during his Hogwarts, Levi still sometimes feels as though he is a disappointment to his family because he can’t be the kind of people they are. For most of the time, however, Levi is a happy and positive person, eager to support people in all kinds of endeavors, whether it be in tutoring them, their skills, dreams, or being the wingman for them on an adventure. Levi has a quick mind and a great aptitude for theoretical subjects, and is often regarded as one of the brightest in his house. Levi is humble about such praise and merely offers his services where he can, quipped with a smile and a compliment. He knows how to boost someone’s confidence or brighten their day - and perhaps one of his best qualities is that he knows how to tell a story. From beginning to end, Levi knows how to capture his audience, regaling stories from books he’d read, things he’d seen, or memories of his parents. In the last year or so, Levi has started to document these stories, finding that he has a passion for writing and recording, though he’s shy about this and hasn’t told many people that a future in writing and creating stories of his own is something that he’s interested in. Levi can sometimes be called apathetic when it comes to getting caught up in the bigger picture and his lack of direction and lack of impact on the world, and he is often lost in the thinking about what to do, rather than actively doing it, leaving him torn between the two and eventually doing nothing.

BROOKLYN CHASE, HUFFLEPUFF
↳ 16 → Half-blood → Sixth Year → FC: Christa B. Allen
Past: On the snow-filled morning of January 7th, Brooklyn Elizabeth Chase was the fourth child, and first girl, born to David and Amelia Chase. The young girl had three older brothers, Alex, Charlie and Dylan. Alex was four years older than Brooke, Charlie and Dylan were twins who were two years older than Brooke. The siblings grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. The Chase family was very well-off, but David and Amelia never let their children become bratty. Brooke grew up being a little spoiled by her mother, who had always wanted a daughter. But despite her mother always giving Brooklyn dresses and make-up, she was a very independent young girl. Her brothers taught her how to hold her on, and her mother quickly accepted who she was.
At age seven, Brooke’s parents, healers, both got offered jobs at St. Mungo’s Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, so the family picked up and moved to a small village called Oxted outside of London. Her eldest brother, Alex, started his first year at Hogwarts while Brooke and her two other brothers started a muggle primary school in the area. At age eleven, Brooklyn received an owl from Hogwarts, and she was thrilled having feared that she was really a squib and wouldn’t be able to attend school with her brothers. On her first night at Hogwarts, Brooke was sorted into Hufflepuff, a house none of her family was in. However, the other students in Hufflepuff became her second family. From the start, Brooklyn loved the castle and the magical world. She grew up with two magical parents, but despite that, things in her house were mostly done the muggle way, her parents didn’t discuss work a lot with her, and they didn’t live in a wizarding community, neither in Boston nor Oxted. For the first time, she was surrounded by magic and it gave Brooke this energy and a huge joy of life.
Personality: Brooklyn is a very energetic and lively girl. She loves to have fun, and is a free spirit. There are very few people who can reel her in. She is sweet, especially when it comes to younger kids. Brooke is very friendly and tries to get along with everyone, even if they have differences. Sometimes, the young woman goes off into dream-like states, her mind wandering when she should be focusing in class. She is as stubborn as a mule and hates it when someone tries to change her mind. Brooke often doubts herself, and this causes her to have a lack of bravery. A restless girl, she has trouble staying indoors sitting in class a lot of the time, especially during the winter, causing her to assume her self in ways that are often less than amusing to her professors. She is very loyal to her friends and family, and would do anything for them; she is extremely family-oriented.. She is outgoing, and one of her favorite things to do is make new friends. Brooklyn can get emotional very easily, but often doesn’t want to show it - this causes her to release a lot of her emotions at once, often scaring some people. She is kind, rather brave and hard-working in her studies, although she occasionally procrastinates. Brooklyn loves to be involved, sometimes coming across as nosy, and is in many different clubs.
