Matthias Daye
Magical Accidents and Catastrophes
12 Jan 1963
Matt was born and raised in London, to a family of pureblood wizards who were known for being of the scholarly sort. His mother hailed from Beauxbatons, and was an instructor there for some time before meeting his father, a Ministry worker who studied Muggle Artifacts. Matt's father came from old money, and so when the two married, his mother left her job and relocated to London.

Matt never wanted for anything as a child, and he grew up with a sense of his own importance. His parents doted on him, along with his younger sister, Noemi. For his part, he found Noemi to be the worst sort of interloper, and when it was time for him to leave for Hogwarts, he rarely gave her another thought.

At Hogwarts, he settled into his studies easily, though he often found the lack of practical applications for some spells to be quite irritating. When he was a third year, he fell in with some older students who met secretly to practice things that were not sanctioned by those in power. He was also very interested in the idea of becoming an animagus. He always felt like he was different from his family, from a lot of his peers, and there was something in him that liked having a physical mark of that difference.

As he grew into his teens, the first Wizarding War was still waging. Matt openly spoke out against Voldemort, while with his closest friends he privately admitted to admiring him. He was fairly good at being sneaky, and thus he carried out several mean-spirited pranks against Muggleborns or Halfbloods. It was his intention to join Voldemort when he left Hogwarts, but when that time came, Harry Potter had already somehow vanquished the Dark Lord, leaving Matt only the cold comfort that he had never been overt with his sympathies or intentions.

He left Hogwarts and took a job at the Ministry, following in his father's footsteps in Muggle Artifacts. However, he found it difficult to keep his disdain for muggles under wraps, so when the opportunity presented itself, he became an Obliviator. He was rather good at it, if he did say so himself, and while his father might have been disappointed, Matt was much happier.

In his early thirties, he eventually perfected his animal form, that of a pine marten, and he duly registered himself, though he never shares this skill with anyone, not even his family.

When the second Wizarding War began, Matt was very careful to keep his sympathies concealed, mindful of what had happened the last time. He did his best to support Voldemort covertly, and only a select few knew who he was. Basically he did just enough to be looked upon favorably by the Death Eaters without endangering himself by 'coming out' as it were. Which was fortunate, because once again, the Dark Lord was defeated.

Frustrated by these developments, Matt nurses his prejudices in secret, hoping for the rise of someone worth following. He occasionally fancies that he might be that person, though even he would be surprised if possessed that sort of nerve.

When it comes to personal relationships, Matt doesn't generally form close bonds with anyone. He has friends and has had lovers, but in most cases, the relationship means more to the other person than it does to him, though he is fairly good at faking it.

Magical Status Form

Magical Status: ANIMAGUS

Animagus Form & Distinguishing Marks: Pine Marten, brown and reddish fur, with a notch in its left ear that corresponds to a scar that Matt has in the same place.

Animagus Form Elaboration: Pine martens are elusive predators, which is exactly how Matthias sees himself. He can also be very cute when he makes the effort, but deep down he is definitely something of a weasel.

List the 3 most serious mishaps that animagus endured in training::
1) Razed Nerves -- This was the first mishap that Matt ever suffered, and it was almost enough to make him quit trying. Every movement was fiery pain and he spent two weeks in St. Mungo's and on pain potions, very nearly resulting in an addiction.

2) Broken Muscles and Bones -- This has actually happened to Matt on three separate occasions, having broken an arm, a toe, and his ankle. All of those resulted in St. Mungo's time plus recuperation. He typically lies about these injuries to make it sound like he was doing something cooler.

3) Extra Animal Parts -- He had a tail for two months and it was very awkward and Blaise still makes fun of him about it.
