Antonio comes from an old family that takes pride in their pure lineage. If you look far, far, far, far back enough, you'll find that they actually have mixed blood but they are influential enough to shut down and ruin anyone that tries to mention it. Antonio's father is a Spanish wizard ambassador to the United Kingdom. The family discriminates terribly against non-purebloods. Hell, they'll even discriminate against purebloods that associate with mixed blood. Though Antonio himself isn't an awful person, he was a highly impressionable child and that was the only lifestyle he knew so he came to reflect his family's views without doubt. He has an older sister who is a bit of a rebel but he idolizes her all the same. When his sister chose to go to Hogwarts instead of Beauxbatons, he decided to follow her too. The sorting hat wrestled between Slytherin and Gryffindor but Gryffindor won out.

Not coming from the United Kingdom, he wasn't really familiar with which families were "okay" for him to associate with so he "accidentally" made friends with people who were from mixed and muggle families. He was pretty popular at first thanks to his charm and appearances but his awful attitude would reveal itself and quickly cause him to lose favor among others. For a while, he was actually more popular with the Slytherins than he was with his own house. Things changed when he tried out for quidditch, still not knowing who was who, and was accepted on the condition he would work with everyone as a team regardless of blood status upon revelation. His natural love and passion for the sport beat out his conditioned dislike for non-purebloods. This was just the first step and gradually, he would start to think for himself instead of parroting back everything he learned from his family. He grew, matured, and before he left Hogwarts, he was a much more different person than he was when he first arrived.

Upon graduation, he decided to pursue sports as a career instead of going into wizard politics like his father. This, on top of associating with "filthy blood," and even dating a mixed witch, got his name blasted off the family tree. Luckily, he was able to rely on his friends and his sister (who met a similar fate) for support and he became a professional player for the Spanish National Team. Interestingly, he was recruited as a keeper instead of chaser (which had been his position at Hogwarts). He led a successful career and retires. He could become a professor for herbology.

Though most of his family was in Spain, many seemed to support Voldemort. His parents were called back to Spain for their own safety and Antonio was already in Spain thanks to his own job. He invited his friends to come stay with him in Spain where they would hopefully be safe but when they declined, he went to them.

His familiar is a short eared owl.
His patronus is a bull.
For a brief period, his Boggart was Arthur beating him at a duel. Casting riddikulus turned him into a hedgehog. Now, his boggart is a loved one saying they hate him. Casting riddikulus will make them say they love him.
His wand is ebony, phoenix feather, 12 inches, supple
This jet-black wand wood has an impressive appearance and reputation, being highly suited to all manner of combative magic, and to Transfiguration. Ebony is happiest in the hand of those with the courage to be themselves. Frequently non-conformist, highly individual or comfortable with the status of outsider, ebony wand owners have been found both among the ranks of the Order of the Phoenix and among the Death Eaters. In my experience the ebony wand’s perfect match is one who will hold fast to his or her beliefs, no matter what the external pressure, and will not be swayed lightly from their purpose.

This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike.

↪Dragonite was given to him as a dratini from a trainer he really looked up to and admired. He promised to take care of it and raised it well. It eventually evolved into a dragonair. One day, while using surf to get to a gym, a storm struck up, and he almost drowned. Dragonair evolved into dragonite to rescue him.
↪A rival gave him a slowpoke as a joke and a passive aggressive way to say he was slow. The joke, of course, went over his head. It has since evolved into a slowking.
↪Chikorita has a tsundere personality. She is very slow to evolve for some reason but he tells her that's okay because he thinks she's very cute the way she is. She is his youngest pokemon, having been hatched from an egg left behind at his daycare.
↪He actually has like 20 million tauros in the PC

Percy wasn't like all of the other kids growing up and we're not talking about how he came from a single parent household. He should have drowned at summer camp that one summer but when someone finally noticed he'd been underwater for too long, he emerged just fine. They credited him for paying attention to the water safety lessons and not panicking but the truth was, when he was under, he'd been able to breathe just fine. When he told his mother, she didn't seem surprised but she did seem rather nervous.

She wasn't surprised when his first owl arrived either with a letter accepting him into Hogwarts. At first he thought it was a joke but his mother explained things to him and finally, after years of avoiding the question, told him more about his dad. His father was a wizard, he'd gone undercover for their own safety during the wizard war, and never returned. He was presumed dead. As a result, Percy and his mother inherited a fund from him which helped cover costs for supplies.

When he got to Hogwarts, he was sorted into Hufflepuff (though, he had some Gryffindor leanings). He got along with a lot of people but he constantly butted heads with Slytherin (and several Gryffindors) because he hated how they treated people. For the most part, he was a mediocre student. He was too awful of a flyer to ever consider quidditch and his grades were okay at best. He had a knack for dueling and eventually joined the dueling club.

With the help of his girlfriend, he was able to pass his exams with impressive colors. They say he could have become an auror if he really wanted to but he eventually decides to either work for the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes (his favorite is would be making up silly excuses for muggles to believe) or he becomes a professor at Hogwarts.

Percy fights against the Dark Wizards. He fights for and works with his friends to keep their homes safe. In particular, he works to hide and protect people of mixed blood from dark wizards.

His patronus is a horse, just like his father.
His boggart is dead family/friends. Casting riddikulus will show them being happy and smiling.
His wand is cedar, unicorn hair, 11 3/4 inches, unyielding.
Whenever I meet one who carries a cedar wand, I find strength of character and unusual loyalty. My father, Gervaise Ollivander, used always to say, ‘you will never fool the cedar carrier,’ and I agree: the cedar wand finds its perfect home where there is perspicacity and perception. I would go further than my father, however, in saying that I have never yet met the owner of a cedar wand whom I would care to cross, especially if harm is done to those of whom they are fond. The witch or wizard who is well-matched with cedar carries the potential to be a frightening adversary, which often comes as a shock to those who have thoughtlessly challenged them.

Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner.

His mother is the magical one in the family. She comes from a wonderfully normal wizarding family and is a writer for the Daily Prophet. One day, while investigating the illegal phoenix trade, the building she was in caught on fire. She could have just apparated away but she had to stay and dig around for information while the thugs were fleeing! Muggles noticed the fire, called the fire station, and one young, eager firefighter ran in to save the woman someone saw at the window. She was totally fine and actually ended up saving him.

Alfred and his brother had a wonderfully normal life. Their life was so amazingly normal you could have made 1950s suburban tv shows about them except for the fact there were little things that didn't quite add up. Matthew was the first person to notice that the carpets upstairs were always clean even though their mother never carried the vacuum upstairs (or vacuumed at all, to be honest). Even weirder, they could have sworn their dog, Samantha, threw up on the carpet a second ago and now there was nothing there like what the hell.

Lo and behold one day, the two brothers got their letters and it was the coolest day of Alfred's life and also the day he found out their mom hated vacuuming and had placed a carpet cleaning charm on the entire house. Also, she never actually made those apple pies from scratch. It was magic all along. When they asked their parents why they didn't expose them to magic sooner, both parents said they agreed to give them "ordinary" lives because it built good ethic.

Alfred was sorted into Gryffindor so fast people weren't sure if the hat even touched his head. It was pretty awesome and he was so Gryffindor it hurt. Unfortunately, he was stumbling around the magic world with no real idea of what he was doing because he'd practically been raised a muggle. For the first year, he was dependent on the knowledge of one of his friends.

One day in his first year, he got into a fight. He didn't know any spells so he threw a few punches instead. He ended up with an itchy eye curse that made him look like he was crying for three days, losing points, and getting detention BUT it was a really good swing and he ended up getting recruited for the quidditch team. He had no idea what he was doing but he could hit a bludger hard and fast and that was what mattered the most. He actually ended up being a pretty okay player once you got past the dumb mistakes he made for the first year or two simply because he was still learning and then the dumb mistakes he made every year after because he thought he was so great.

Alfred has a lot of potential in his studies but lacks motivation. Upon learning how hard it is to actually be an auror (which is a really cool good guy), he buckles down and studies hard to become one. He fails but still manages to become a Hit Wizard. Though not the most skilled wizard, what he lacks in skill, he makes up in brute strength.

He fights against the Dark Wizards. Despite his jock behavior at Hogwarts, he takes the war very seriously. His reckless fighting style got him hurt numerous times and he made frequent use of his bed at St. Mungo's.

His familiar is a great grey owl named George.
His patronus is an eagle.
His boggart is a ghost. When he casts riddikulus it simply gets blown away.
His wand is rowan, phoenix tail feather, 11.5 inches, unyielding

Rowan wood has always been much-favoured for wands, because it is reputed to be more protective than any other, and in my experience renders all manner of defensive charms especially strong and difficult to break. It is commonly stated that no Dark witch or wizard ever owned a rowan wand, and I cannot recall a single instance where one of my own rowan wands has gone on to do evil in the world. Rowan is most happily placed with the clear-headed and the pure-hearted, but this reputation for virtue ought not to fool anyone - these wands are the equal of any, often the better, and frequently out-perform others in duels

Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner.

When he was a baby, his mother took him and left her husband and family behind because they were radical purebloods. Not wanting her son to end up like them, she fled the country altogether and kept his history a secret even after he was accepted into Hogwarts.

At his sorting, the hat stalled meaning it took more than five minutes to sort him due to being fairly equally suited for each house. When the hat asked Robin if he had a preference, he replied that he wouldn't mind being in Gryffindor because he'd made a friend on the train who had just been sorted into the house but insisted he'd be content in any house because being in a different house didn't mean they couldn't still be friends. His easy acceptance of others regardless of station was the last bit to push him into Hufflepuff. Professors say Robin's sorting is one of the longer ones in the school's history. Throughout his years in school, he was often told he "should have been" in one house or another for different reasons but everyone, for the most part, agrees that he's a pretty true Hufflepuff.

Het met Chrom on the Hogwarts Express prior to arriving to school. Robin was napping in his compartment when Chrom woke him up to ask if it was okay to sit with him.

Robin is a very talented wizard. He's hardworking, excels in his classes, and applies himself in everything he does. There really isn't such thing as a subject he's awful at though his potions are a bit lacking (he has it all down in theory but when it comes to execution, he falls a little short). He naturally becomes prefect and is a popular candidate to be Head Boy but ultimately loses the position to his best friend.

Eventually, it's revealed that Robin comes from an old pureblood family with a pretty awful history against non-purebloods. He's the heir to the family and there's a lot of pressure for him to return home so he can be groomed to take over but Robin decides to stay at Hogwarts with his friends and mother.

After school, he works for the Department of International Magical Cooperation in the Ministry of Magic despite many insisting he should be an auror.

During the war, he naturally aligns against the dark wizards but becomes an unlikely victim of the Imperius Curse.
