Philo 'Pi' Lucton
Pre-Hogwarts: Philo was born to a fairly affluent family, who hailed from the south of France. He lived a seemingly stable, and far from noteworthy childhood, with his brother, who was younger the him by 3 years, Bastien. However, in his family there was a constant rift. His parents and Bastien were happy, optimistic, placid people, whereas Pi was always quite melancholic, distrustful, and frequently impassioned. He never felt at home with his family once. At age 9, the Lucton family moved to England, as the father, Nino, wanted his sons to go to his alma mater: Hogwarts.
Hogwarts Years: As soon as the Sorting Hat hit his head, Philo was declared a Ravenclaw. Stuck in a family of stereotypical Gryffindors, his less gung-ho approach to life was not well received at home. He was incredibly intelligent, but still liked to study as much as possible for fear of falling behind in class. He became a favourite of the majority of his teachers quickly, and proved himself highly proficient at charms. In his spare time, he became known as a ladies man and was (from his fourth year onwards) rarely single. He also took up Quiditch, playing as a Beater. He seemed perfect. But very few knew his home life was a wreck. His father had anger issues, and his mother was on the receiving end of these issues. In his sixth year, his father was sent to jail. Why? He killed his wife. Pi put on a brave front, and continued as if nothing had changed, but he was slowly letting his melancholy side consume him. By the end of his seventh year, he was glad Hogwarts was over and done with.
Post-Hogwarts: As soon as he was done with Hogwarts, Pi gave himself a year to be alone. In that year, he let the façade crumble and stopped pretending his life was perfect. It must have been the first time in years that he let himself cry, but it felt good! When he came back from his year alone, he took up playing Quidditch in a big league, becoming fairly successful. He was no longer a broken man trying (pitifully) to hide his scars, he was his old self: a brooding, intelligent, heartbreaker. When he turned 26, he was asked to come back to Hogwarts to teach charms, an opportunity he took with glee.
Favorite Hogwarts Memory:His final Quidditch match against Slytherin. His team were down by 70. The only to win: catch the Snitch. Easier said than done. Just as the Slytherin Seeker was about to catch the Snitch, Philo hit an oncoming bludger, aiming it just in front to the opposing Seeker's head. His target was hit, scaring the poor Slytherin for long enough for the Ravenclaw Seeker to catch the Snitch. His team won, and Philo was hailed a hero by his house, and then-current girlfriend, much to his delight. He didn't live it down for the rest of the year.
