My Name or Nickname: Susan

Quills Account(s): Free Season Character
Have you read through the Character Creation Guide at least once this season? Yes
NAME: Finnian Charles Rogers
CHARACTER TYPE: Wizard
DATE OF BIRTH: March 21st, 1978
BIRTH COUNTRY: United Kingdom
CURRENT RESIDENCE: London, England
EMPLOYER: Borgin & Burkes
POSITION: Appraiser

COUNTRY FLAG: UK
PRIMARY ERA: Reformation

What is the concept for your character?
A young man with questionable morals who came from nothing, and is trying to make money and move up in the world in whatever way he can.
What other eras will they be active in and what will their job be in each era?
Golden Era - Seventh Year Slytherin
What does your character look like?
Tall, lanky, with a pointed chin and messy brown hair. Finn is very nonchalant in all matters of appearance, from his hatred of dressing up and lack of dress robes in his wardrobe, to his casual stroll as he walks.
Where can we find your character when their story first begins?
At work at Borgin & Burkes, on a quiet day, going through all of their current stock.
Who is someone from your characters past who influenced who they are today?
His father. He raised him by himself, and did what he could. He instilled a sense of independence and drive into Finnian.
What does your character think their strongest and weakest traits are?
Finn is very smart. Not necessarily academic or book smart, but very street smart, can read people easily, and he knows how to hustle. He has a great sense for business, and does have ambition and drive when it comes to his own personal success.

His weakest traits, which he would insist can all be justified, would be that he is often selfish, sneaky and dishonest.
What is something your character wants but does not have?
Money. A nice house. His own broomstick. Someone special in his life, maybe. Some new trainers. The list of things Finn wants could go on and on.
What are their current short term and long term goals?
To make more money, however possible. His current job is okay, but he is thinking bigger. Creating and selling fake identities to Muggleborns during the war worked very well for him, so perhaps there is something else that can be done with that.
What is something your character would never tell anyone about themselves?
The true extent of the poverty he experienced as a child, and the emotional impact it had on him. And, what happened with his mother.

Welcome to the Wizarding World,
Finnian Rogers !
Borgin & Burkes characters are always so fun to read and Finnian is no different!

Perhaps Finnian can come across a particularly lucrative antique that will propel him to a better status. You might like to begin your story in Momentary Bliss which takes place in Knockturn Alley, or by using one of the following thread ideas:

★ A client has called upon Finnian specifically to take a look at a new acquisition from Lebanon.
★Need a little research help? Finnian should check out the listings at Flourish & Blott's.
