Marauders Uncut Biographies
Introduction: Hi, I'm Morgan. I'm newly 22, I'm a New Yorker, and, like everyone else, I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. I like RP'ing and have been dabbling abstractly in it for four years or so. There's a bunch of other stuff I like, too, but who really cares? I'm here to play. And bother people.
RP Experience: I've played Remus in at least 5 RPGs. He's just my favorite. I've also had a handful of Harry Potter-related original characters. As for non-HP-related RPGs (*gasp!*), I've got an obvious penchant for the sci-fi/fantasy thing, and I've played fairy princesses, selkies, goblins, shapeshifters, steam punk half-wolf assassins, elves, blah blah blah. I was an early member of Before the Downfall, then wasn't, then was, then wasn't again, and now I'm back along with many of the rest. Glad to be back in Uncut. All RP'ing efforts have been confined to the Internet, although now that I'm involved in the SCA I may get into some LARP.
Name: Remus Jeremiah Lupin
Nickname: RJ, Rem
Quidditch Position: N/A
House of: N/A
Friends: James Potter, Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew
Personality: Quiet, calm, level-headed. Intelligent and clever, on the shy side. Keeps secrets very well. Loyal and dutiful, hard-working, prefers to avoid stirring up trouble or getting involved in other people's disputes. Thoroughly likeable once you get to know him, but he keeps very much to himself for rather obvious reasons (well, to us, I mean).
Appearance: Average in height and looks, thin, with light brown hair and grey eyes. Often appears tired and sickly.
Faults: At times too reticent and secretive, if that's not redundant, with a tendency to keep his feelings to himself. Often feels responsible for others, especially his friends, although he has enough problems of his own. He feels his biggest flaw is that he allows his friends to get into trouble, while the responsible and mature young man in him wants to stop them. Has lots of trouble talking to girls; definitely not a hit with the ladies. Also finds difficulty in forming relationships with people, as he worries constantly that he's going to hurt someone, or that once they find out about him they'll hate him. Because, you know, he's a werewolf and all.
Strengths: Smart, studious, and mature. Keeps his cool under pressure. Responsible, reliable, intensely loyal.
Background: The most important moment of young Remus's life was undoubtedly the day when he was six years old, on holiday in Romania with his parents, that he received the werewolf's bite. His life, and his parents' lives, were never the same. The Lupins were a very average, normal family with a modest income and a tidy home until the day their son became a werewolf; since then, Mr. and Mrs. Lupin have aged beyond their years, the burden of caring for a child that transforms into a monster every full moon taking its toll on their happy home. Though the family still bears the appearance of being happy and well-to-do, the strain is sometimes too difficult to bear, and all have suffered as a result. In the earlier years of his life, Remus was never able to make friends, burdened by his secret, and felt the resentment of his parents for placing such a strain upon them. It made him shy, withdrawn, and cautious, but Remus has always tried to stay strong and positive. He was granted entrance to Hogwarts on special conditions because of his exceptional intelligence, and the fact that he's obviously a good, mature, and responsible person. There he made his first friends, James Potter and Sirius Black, the first of his peers to know about his condition. And... that pretty much sums it up.
Other: Remus has a predisposition for excellence in both Defense Against the Dark Arts and Astronomy.
Additional Comments: Completely computer illiterate, so I'm hoping this bio-cut thing works. If it doesn't I'll just delete it and try it again. I think I may have a story or two up at fanfiction.com and fictionpress.com, my penname is Morgan Russell (because that's, you know... my name...), and I've got a tiny gallery at elfwood.com that I love people to visit. My username there is morganwolf, like here, real easy to remember.
