Being a human dwarf sucks. Being a human dwarf with magic sucks a little less, but all in all... it still sucks.

Annalese Kinton knew there was always a chance that she'd give birth to a dwarf. Her father was dwarf, though she had been born tall herself. She'd told her husband, Michael, but he still insisted on having children with her. He promised that he'd love and cherish all of their offspring. And to his credit, he had tried -- for a while.

Rory was the eldest Kinton child of three, and the only to be born with dwarfism. Though Michael swore he "tried" to love his child, he really just wanted a son who he could play ball with, who could play and enjoy cricket, and could ride roller coasters before they were seventeen years old. And when he got his wish with a second child, Rory all but fell to the wayside.

Though he would never be physically talented, Rory was mentally gifted, and his brightness was only amplified by his photographic memory. Though he knew it would help him to do great things in life, his memory seemed to be a curse. Every person who gawked, every rude comment or mean joke had been ingrained into him. The 50's weren't a good time to be different. And though Rory's mother tried to help him focus on the good and let go of the bad, he could never really help being bitter.

From a young age, Rory felt like he had something to prove, to all those people who told him that he couldn't, but mostly to his father who was sure that he wouldn't amount to much. And then strange things started to happen -- mostly to Michael. His tie would catch on fire, or his eyebrows would fall off. Sometimes he'd become covered in warts and boils for no apparent reason.

And then came the letter -- the one that would prove Rory to be more special than he could have ever imagined. He was a Wizard. He was born to do great things. But where Rory felt pride, Michael felt shame. He couldn't relate at all to his child. Not anymore.

The more and more accomplished Rory became in the wizarding world, the further the muggle world and his muggle father pulled from him, creating a hard and cynical man. But still, with the everlasting need for acceptance, Rory drove himself with everything he did, including becoming an Animagus.

After taking a keen interest in magical creatures, a Hogwarts professor introduced him to a friend, who would not only train him to become an Animaugus, but eventually get him a job at the Ministry in the Magical Creatures department.

Begining as a being body, Rory slowly but surely made his way up the ranks of the department, mostly through talent as his skills with people left something to be desired. Unfortunately, a young Voldemort was gaining attention and followers in the 70s, and Rory, being both Muggleborn and physically deformed became a target. An encounter with a group of Deatheaters would have proved fatal had he not been saved by a pair of Aurors hot on their trail. That being said, Rory was permanently disabled and walked with a severe limp.

Rory went back to work almost straight away. He was admired for his tenacity and work ethic, and would soon prove a key member of the Being Body team.

Rory had become Lead Being Body when things started to get dicey for Muggleborn witches and wizards during the Second Wizarding War. He was encouraged to leave while he could, and reluctantly went into hiding. He did what he could for the resistance, which was unfortunately little due to his lack of practical skills, and when the war was over, he was approached by new Ministry Leadership to be vetted for Department Head.

Rory spent a year learning the ins and outs of the Department and has just recently taken responsibility of it as a whole.

Magical Status Form

Magical Status: ANIMAGUS

Animagus Form & Distinguishing Marks: Grey and black goose with unusually short neck and legs.

Animagus Form Elaboration: To put it bluntly, geese are assholes. They're short tempered, aggressive and generally don't care for anyone else but themselves. They're also impressive birds, and are typically graceful in air and water. And while Rory might not have realized these kinds of things while learning to hone his craft, he certainly embraced it.
