PLAYER | Claira
Tucker Weston was a simple man; a muggle man living in a muggle world. He grew up in Upstate New York before enlisting into the United States Army branch, where he would travel to different parts of the world. When he was stationed in Stuttgart he met a young woman named Rita. Rita was a waitress in a bustling restaurant, taking care of her daughter to the best of her ability. Tucker had always been a hopeless romantic, and fell hard for the woman. By the end of his duty, they were married and went off to be stationed in Texas.

There, they had a son: Colton Griff Weston.

As the young boy grew older, he began to show signs of magical abilities and eventually the truth came out. Rita was a halfblooded witch, as was her daughter who stayed behind with her grandparents to finish schooling. Initially, Tucker was flabbergasted that his wife kept such a secret from him; but eventually, he got over it.

Being a military brat, Griff went to two different wizarding schools during their travels: the Ravenwood Institute and Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizarding.

During his time at Ilvermorny, he received good grades and did well excellent at being a wallflower. His schooldays were the same, day in and day out up until what was supposed to be his last year at the school before being transferred to Uagadou School of Magic. In 1993 an intense blizzard rolled through the Upstate area, covering it in a thick blanket of ice and snow. One time while out helping his father and uncles with traps they were attacked by the nefarious Winter Wolf, or the Wendigo as most of the natives refer to the creature as. His father and uncles were the first to go and just when the creature began to tear into his skin and nearly gut him, the local wizarding authorities arrived and held off the Wendigo.

On the brink of death, he was immediately taken to the ICU, where he spent months in recovery. Griff had to retake his fifth year and finished with some struggle. But through his pain, extensive training and rehabilitation, he was able to pull through and pass his remaining years at Ilvermorny and was eventually accepted into the Witch Watcher program offered by the Ministry of Magic.

Near the end of his first year, the Ministry was taken over by Voldemort and his Death Eaters, make his time there the equivalent of walking on thin ice. It had been only a matter of time that Griff took sides, siding with the Order of the Phoenix, the Rabble Alliance, the Chosen One: the good guys. Griff ultimately joined the Rabble Alliance, feeling that his skills were better adapted there than anywhere else.

After the war was won and surprisingly enough, Griff remained at the Ministry, finished his training, and resumed his duty as an active agent.
Griff is not without his scars especially after his encounter with a Wendigo. On his upper arms, he has multiple large hypertrophic and atrophic scars from when his flesh and muscle was removed. After being gutted by the creature, he bears a large atrophic scar on the right side of his torso from where he was ripped open: it starts from just beneath his ribcage and runs down his side, angling towards his belly button, swooping underneath it and ends at his left side’s hip bone. Smaller scars branch off the grievous old wound.

During the War, he earns more battle scars; a two inch scar just underneath the left side of his jaw, a scar horizontally lining the left side of his ribcage, and one from being hamstringed. During a fight with a werewolf (that luckily was in human form), he was bitten and it shows on his wand hand.
