Greetings!

I have just joined the board, and my character is a young orphan boy who grew up in the Muggle foster care system. Having become a ward of the state within a day of his birth and never met another wizard prior to receiving his letter of acceptance, Diego is a bit of an odd case. Unlike most magical children; Diego never had anyone put the Trace on him back when he was a tiny tot, so I imagine it was a lucky coincidence that an observant assistant in the Muggle Liaison Office came to notice a report involving the Muggle Social Services in some paperwork that had been held back that indicated a child exhibiting underage magic being in their care, allowing the Ministry to become aware of Diego's existence at the right moment to induct him into the magical community just in time for him for his magical education. Perhaps this oversight was criticized by the Daily Prophet in an article that highlighted the sorry state of Diego's situation? In any case; Diego is suffering from abandonment issues, and the idea I had was that throughout Diego's first year, this timid boy found a friend in a fellow First Year whom he shared dormitory with; and who maybe wrote home to his parents telling about Diego, who took pity on him and decided to adopt him at some point?

I was hoping to decide which house he'd been in until I got some feedback, (preferably Gryffindor. Even mentioned that he was a Gryffindor in the app, but removed it so we could get back to it after I posted this thread, but the staff deemed him a Hufflepuff. I'll try to request a transfer if there's no First Year Hufflepuffs interested). So... Anyone interested, Gryffindor or otherwise? ^^'

EDIT: Okay, seems like 30+ people have seen this post and not find it very compelling, so I'm open for alternative ideas and suggestions.

Hello!

I have two characters to offer you!

Andrea is 19, turning 20 and has been in and out of care her whole life. She was adopted in 1995, only for her family to disappear during the Wizarding War, sending Andrea straight back into care. She was adopted again in 2001 by Emily (below), but there's a small chance she might know Diego?

If not, there's Emily Anderson, who is not only Andrea's adopted mother, but works very closely with the orphanage that she adopted Andrea from. She's very wealthy and runs lots of charity events to support and raise funds for them. She might know Diego from there. Or it's very possible that she accompanied the Ministry official who came to tell him that he was a wizard, and to take him to a wizarding orphanage.

I have two characters that can somewhat related to no parents,
Shiro Takayama, though I can't see this going anywhere. He's a Yakuza who has no personal attachments to even his own husband, then you have the culture issue (if he wasn't yakuza that wouldn't be an issue mind you.). If you want a changeling however he's an option, as he is one of the few open minded of his organization. (he's let in Chinese to his organization.)

The one I think you'll LOVE however is Mark/Markus Green. He's a fun one for a fun reason, Coming from a bad childhood he's pretty much been emotionally parent less all his life. When he entered school he was in the same situation as Diego, knowing no one due the lack of socialization he's dealt with since he was well born. Mark is the 'nice' one, caring and understanding while Markus is the more...'yeah. try me I've got nothing to lose' type personality. (Mutli personality disorder.) I could see Mark taking him under his wing, Markus following suit out of respect for Mark.
