    Ethan Ceyal Kalhoun -Tyler-Blackburn-tyler-blackburn-30864275-1024-768

    Hair colour:Dark brown
    Hair style: Usually kept at chin length
    Height: 179cm
    Eye colour: Brown
    Freckles: -
    Beauty spot: -
    Body type: Slender and fit
    Dress sense: Very casual. Just throws on whatever is clean


    Likes: Fried food, Muggle music, sports, singing, playing his guitar and harmonica, keeping secrets, being invisible, thinking

    Dislikes: Arrogant egotistical know-it-alls, eavesdroppers, overly inquisitive people who poke into other people’s affairs uninvited, chocolate and most things mainstream, attention on himself, stereotypical high and mighty purebloods, drunk people and alcohol in general

    Quirks: Always needs something in his mouth and so is constantly chewing gum. When gum is not available, he will nibble on pens, pencils, his fingers or anything available to him. Can fake a stutter and usually does it to keep people from talking to him. Survives on three hours of sleep a night due to nightmares. Since he turned twelve, he got a tattoo for every event in his life, the first being a heart as a symbol for Loveen whom he sometimes called ‘Love’ to cheer her up.

    Flaws: He has never opened up to anyone and keeps his feelings bottled up inside and so nobody knows what’s going on with him. Is very pessimistic, having lost all hope in anything good. He has a very dark and mysterious aura and keeps a dark expression on his face to scare people away. Not approachable at all. He cuts other people off without giving them a chance. Although he can be compassionate and understanding, he hides it behind a ‘bad boy’, prickly, thorny, don’t-mess-with-me attitude so no one knows the real him. Is rather insecure.

    Strengths: Very passionate if the subject is dear to him. Very observant and will notice things other people usually miss especially body language. An extremely good listener who provides a shoulder to cry on if you are close to him. Able to look past the exterior and see underneath a person. Protective of people close to him – which are not many at all. He could count them on one hand. Very sensitive and intuitive to the feelings of others.

    Weaknesses: Loveen, Eloise, his past, drunks and abusive people, seeing people abused.

    More Information

    Loveen never had a good life. She was the unwanted eight child, unloved by her parents, siblings and other relatives. Her father sold her off to be married to an older abusive drunk, Arnold, when she was at the tender age of fourteen. He beat her mercilessly for not being able to produce him a child when in actual fact, she miscarried many due to his violence. He would abuse her whenever he felt like it.

    When Loveen found out she was pregnant for the fifth time, she attempted to run away and succeeded in staying hidden in Vancouver, Canada long enough to bear Ethan. She was tempted to give him to the hospital for people ot adopt but couldn’t stand the thought of being separated from her son. A month later, Arnold found her, dragged her back to Oregon and punished her harshly, unleashing all his anger on her.

    Ethan spent his childhood avoiding his father as much as possible. He witnessed things that toddlers should never be allowed to witness. Loveen would lock him in a room to protect him from his father’s hand and whip and take his place for the beatings. He would drag a chair to the door and peek through the keyhole and see his mother yell and cry and in pain, helpless to do anything to save her.

    As he grew up (4-6 years old), he would take the punishment himself, refusing to let his mother suffer. He was beaten and whipped for the most menial things, things that Arnold would make up just as an excuse to abuse the young boy. Things like not switching on the light immediately when asked (in actual fact, he did it as fast as he could, jumping up multiple times to reach the switch) and not making Arnold’s breakfast quick enough (when it was Arnold who called him away from the kitchen to do other things) were included in his excuses.

    The only relief Loveen and Ethan got was when Arnold was passed out drunk. Ever since Loveen’s escape, Arnold had taken to locking the front door and back fence. However, they would go to the little garden attached to the back of their ramshackle house and dig the soil, enjoy nature and just bonding with each other. The seven feet high wooded fence which enclosed the back of the house made them feel like it was the safest place in the world. It was during times like these that Loveen would confide in Ethan all her hopes and dreams since he was the only one she could talk to. She would weep and Ethan would hold her and comfort her as best as he could.

    It was also during times like these, when Ethan was around seven year of age, that he discovered his magical abilities. He was able to manipulate growing flowers, making them grow and wilt at his will. He could also manipulate small animals like mice and make them do what he wanted them to do. Loveen encouraged him in his efforts and he would practice whenever he could.

    On Ethan’s 9th birthday, Arnold left for a whole year not saying where he went or not sending any news back home, locking up mother and son in the house. Merlin only knew how they survived on scrapes of food and neighbours’ kindness but it was the best year of their lives. Loveen gave birth to a baby girl and named her Eloise Carmine. She was a joyful and happy infant, always smiling and laughing. She was the light of their lives.

    Three and a half months after her birth, Arnold came back, saw her and decided that Loveen had been unfaithful to him. He took the infant and threw her out on the streets, leaving her to the mercy of the world. Lvoeen could not be comforted. She spent days in her room refusing to eat or drink. She would just lie on the bed listlessly and stare out the window. Ethan had to force food and water down her throat to keep her alive. He too was stricken with grief but did his best to be there for his mom.

    On Ethan’s 10th birthday, Arnold was particularly drunk and came home in a rage. He whipped mother and son unconscious and when Ethan woke up, a frightful sight met his young eyes. Arnold was in the kitchen holding a knife and Loveen was crying and shaking her head. Before Ethan could blink, Arnold had stabbed her. Reacting purely on instinct, he performed accidental wandless magic causing a magical explosion which killed Arnold instantly.

    Unfortunately, Loveen was also injured but not as bad. They tried to patch her up themselves to save money to buy passage to Britain and start a new life. However, when they landed, Loveen succumbed to her injuries and passed away in the home of an elderly couple, Mr. and Mrs. Abbott, leaving Ethan howling in grief for days refusing any comfort provided to him. He stayed in the couple’s home having nowhere else to go. He refused to be called ‘Ethan’ and insisted to be known as ‘Ceyal’, not able to bear the memories associated with his first name. He turned into a social recluse, moving through life as if numbed, not talking unless absolutely necessary and even then in short terse answers. The couple understood his need for silence and gave him all the space he needed. He picked up the guitar and harmonica finding that the music comforted and sheltered him.

    When his Hogwarts letter came, he jumped at the chance to learn about the wizarding world, wanting to hone his skills so that he would never again perform magic accidentally. He never got over the guilt of being responsible of killing his father, though he knew he didn’t deserve to lie, and being responsible for the death of his beloved mother. During his time at Hogwarts, he was dubbed ‘mystery boy’ because no one knew anything about him except for his name and the fact that he studied hard. He graduated amongst the top of his class.

    When his MAE acceptance letter came, he decided to take it up and major in Healing. He kept an expressionless and mysterious exterior to hide his dark past but he will forever bear the scars of the countless whippings on his body, reminding him of whom he truly is and where he really came from.
