Peeves the Poltergeist

Peeves the Poltergeist, Active Character

#32290
My Name or Nickname: Ejder
OOC Account Name: Ejder
How I found Vault 713: I don’t know.
My Previous Roleplaying Experience: Experienced enough.
My Favorite Harry Potter Character: Peeves

NAME: Peeves
CHARACTER TYPE: Poltergeist
DATE OF BIRTH: Unknown
PRIMARY ERA: Golden Era
BIRTH COUNTRY: Hogwarts
CURRENT RESIDENCE: Hogwarts
OCCUPATION: School nuisance

What is the concept for your character?
A chaotic spirit who just sprang into existence a few years after the foundation of Hogwarts, Peeves has always, well, just been around. He wanders around the school, floating, and creates mischief for everyone, making generation after generation of caretaker hate him.
What other eras will they be active in and what will their job be in each era?
School nuisance, all eras.


What does your character look like?
Peeves is a short and vaguely squat man-shaped spirit, a lot less transparent than a ghost, as he is actually solid and tangible. He has mean, black eyes, and always a mischievous expression on his face. He floats in the air, and can make himself invisible at will. He wears a bell-shaped hat, orange shorts, and a garish bowtie, and has black hair and a goatee. He can go through walls if he so pleases, and he can interact with objects, like, say, water balloons.
Where can we find your character when their story first begins?
Well, life is as it is, you know? Peeves has been pranking everyone he’s met in the past thousand years, so hey, it’s a lot of fun. No one is safe from Peeves’ mischief, and he only fears the Bloody Baron.
What was life like for your character one year before their primary era?
Since one day appearing at Hogwarts, Peeves has been embodying chaos and disorder, in most cases being the cause of it himself. He pranks students and faculty members alike, though he seems to have a little more respect for Headmasters. Sometimes.
What does your character think their strongest and weakest traits are?
Peeves is simply amazing, of course! He is particularly inventive, and always finds new ways to ruin people’s days. Also, he is quite witty when coming up with rude songs, and can improvise like no other. On the other hand, he feels like he doesn’t have a shrill enough voice, and would like to be able to yell louder.
What is something your character wants but does not have?
To find that shoe grease that was so useful to help make all doorknobs slippery in 1832. That was a good time, and Peeves would much like to revisit the experience onto this century’s castle inhabitants.
What are their current short term and long term goals?
To grab an ickle firstie and tie him by the briefs to the Entrance Hall chandelier. Maybe even Potty Potter. Peeves has a lot of time on his hands to come up with new ideas to torment both students and faculty members, so his goals are all prank-oriented, obviously. He doesn’t have any other goal than that of creating chaos. So far, so good.
What is your character doing now to work toward their goals?
Nothing. Peeves isn’t much of a plotter. He just seeks out opportunities and uses them to his hilarious advantage.
What is something your character would never tell anyone about themselves?
That he is thinking of retiring. HA! Kidding! Peeves will never retire! He is the King of Hogwarts! And no one can make him leave!

[instructions]The following question is MANDATORY for Canon Characters. Feel free to use this as an opportunity to write a roleplaying post as a description![/instructions]
[question=What is a typical day like for your character?] It was the beginning of December, and beautiful, delicate snowflakes were falling from the sky outside, and from the enchanted ceiling of the Great Hall. It was truly a magical winter wonderland, and the snow falling onto the students who passed the Great Hall door just contributed to the beauty even more. Wait, snow falling onto the students?

‘Merry Christmas!’ Peeves cackled as he pelted snowballs onto the unsuspecting children. [/question]

Welcome to the Wizarding World, Peeves!

Everyone's favourite mischief maker is here! You might like to begin your story in An Unfortunate Invitation, which takes place in Hogwarts, or by using one of the following thread ideas:

★ Uh oh, you've really done it now! The Bloody Baron has caught wind of one of your more elaborate pranks and rumour is he's quite angry. How will you avoid him?

★ What's this? A younger student thinks they're a better prankster than you and the Weasley twins combined? Better put them in their place!
