Surprised you to find that I'm laughing?
You thought that you'd find me in tears
You thought I'd be crawling the walls
Like a tiny mosquito and trembling in fear

While you were looking the other way
While you had your eyes closed
While you were licking your lips
'Cause I was miserable
While you were selling your soul
While you were tearing a hole in me

- "Control"; Poe

His seventh year.

Harry has lost faith in many things, not least of all the people around him. He is growing to believe that he must precipitate the fight against Voldemort if it is to happen and that the prophecy will, indeed, end in one of their deaths.

Full Name: Harry James Potter

Birthdate: July 31, 1980

House: Gryffindor

Year Level: Now alumni

Pets (if any): Hedwig, a Snowy Owl

Physical Description: Messy black hair, green eyes, infamous scar. Harry is skinny and short, underdeveloped physically due to poor nutrition as a child. No longer wears his cousin's hand me downs.

Personality: He was raised in a cupboard and because of that, he doesn’t always know how to deal with people. His sense of right and wrong has always been defined by the people he has idolized, some of them with their own reasons for wanting him to act one way or another. Now all he has is himself. And so he’s struggling - to find direction, to fight the past and find the future. He's an angry person, done with the pretense of being the good boy in the school, and angry enough to take it out on others. He's a danger to others, and possibly to himself.

Bloodline: Halfblood. His father was a pureblood; his mother was Muggleborn.

Background / Family History: Harry's parents were killed during Voldemort's first rise, but Harry survived, instead rendering Voldemort nearly dead. At Dumbledore's instigation, Harry was raised by his Muggle relatives, who were instructed to make sure that Harry grew up hard, partly to forge him into the weapon that Dumbledore wanted for the second war and partly to ensure that he turned to the magical world over the Muggle one. Dumbledore's plan backfired when Harry found out he was manipulating the war for his own ends, and killed the only mentor he'd known.

Interests / Hobbies: Quidditch, taunting Voldemort, cursebreaking. Finding out what happens in the future.

Strengths and weaknesses:
Strengths: Enormous native magic, protected by prophecy, can be affectionate, particular to those either weaker and in need of his strength or who are able to give him what he needs, ability to fight to the end if needed, Quidditch seeker skillset, desire to protect people.

Weaknesses: Potential that his magic is not all his own, extreme anger/rage, homicidal tendencies, extreme dislike of being treated as the saviour of the world, very much a user/manipulator, unwilling to share emotionally with anyone capable of reciprocating, sense of being put upon, sense of need to destroy what has harmed him, which could be Voldemort or the wizarding world or the Dursleys.
