What is the concept for your character?
With the first wizarding war over with and another on the way, His parents having feared for such a future cut themselves off from the magical community choosing to live a muggle lifestyle. Tomma and his siblings, have grown up not knowing magic is real, only to find out he’s actually a wizard? Maybe his father should have hidden his old wizarding school papers better.
What other eras will they be active in and what will their job be in each era?

L: Adult. Unemployed
What does your character look like?
With Italian parents, Tomma has olive skin and bright brown eyes. He’s developed his fathers height, standing 5’1 he feels he was born in the wrong era choosing a leather jacket and dress shirts over the letterman’s jacket and t-shirt that most kids wear. His hair usually sleeked back, also seems to indicate this fact. He’s not a huge fan of sports, but does like to hit the boxing ring, keeping him in shape.
Where can we find your character when their story first begins?
Tomma who had turned into a car fanatic as he grew older got a job as a car repair man in a local shop. Years into his ‘gift’ forming more accidents seemed to be happening, and the feeling his parents were lying to him becoming more of an issue in the back of his head. No longer able to ignore it, he started going through his parents stuff, something he swore he’d never do. Only… what he found was old documents. Documents that had the word magic all over it, old grades from potions class and the like.
His parents were either into the occult, something he’d never seen them dabble in or something else was up. Assuming the occult, he confronted them as he wanted nothing to do with it in either doing or being around someone who did it. His parents, realizing their secret was out finally admitted to them the real reason for their ‘accidents’.
He moved out, angry for the lie that had gone on and taking his siblings who were of age with him.
What was life like for your character one year before their primary era?
Lived with parents. Worked on cars under the table.
Who is someone from your characters past who influenced who they are today?
His grandfather, a man who was good with his hands and taught him that one didn’t need a college degree to make it in life. You just needed talent and a skill.

What does your character think their strongest and weakest traits are?
Untrusting, a bit pessimistic something that can lead him into some trouble. Dependable, friendly, smart, logical, calm. He is usually the person someone comes to with a problem.
What is something your character wants but does not have?
Honest parents.
What are their current short term and long term goals?
Him and his brothers goals mix into one, supporting themselves without their parents help. It seems that it takes three to make it with low wage jobs like theirs are his long term goals, his short term is to get his own personal space.
What is your character doing now to work toward their goals?
All brothers have jobs, working towards their goal of a comfortable life, he’s still trying to figure out how to make it a point that his bedroom is off limits to his siblings.
What is something your character would never tell anyone about themselves?
His slight criminal record was earned only due to him taking the fault of others.
What is their strongest childhood memory?
His sixteenth birthday, seeing his dated car in the driveway.

Hey there Maki! I'm excited to see Tomma back around the board! There's just a couple of things we're hoping you can clear up before we can get him up and running.

First of all, were you looking to reactivate Tomma or is this a rewrite of his sheet?

Secondly, his employer is not in our Business Directory - therefore, he will have to receive one of our general tags. Does "Unemployed" work? Similarly, you have not listed an occupation for Tomma in Legacy era - is he unemployed then?

Finally, for the "What was life like for your character one year before their primary era" question, we would like to see more about Tomma and his own life, not so much about his parents. You can check out here, here, and here for examples of how to answer this question.

Once you've cleared these things up, we will gladly finish sorting him!

Welcome to the Wizarding World,
Tommaso Cortopassi!
I remember Tommaso! It's so cool that you're bringing him back.

Tommaso has taken on a great deal by moving out of his parents' place. You might like to begin your story in Entrapment which takes place in Chicago, or by using one of the following thread ideas:

★ Someone has told Tommaso that finding wiring and stripping copper is a good way to make money.
★Once Tommaso has some money, maybe he can catch a show at the Astrolabe Theater!
