      Secrets:

      Iggy doesn't like to talk about his parents, both due to the stigma associated with magical creatures and because they're both intensely private people. It's not so much a secret as an avoided subject.

      Likewise he doesn't like to advertise his non-human status, but it is fairly obvious. 

      General Knowledge:

      He has a small tabby cat called Nivianne (Nivi) who likes to sleep in his pocket and chase mice. She has really bright yellow eyes. 

      Appearance:

      Ignatius is a little short for his age and rather thin, with long fingers and small feet. His skin is a warm dark brown, with prominent freckles here and there on his cheeks, forehead and chin. His large eyes are bright amber and are noticeably darker around the outer edges of the iris. He has untidy eyebrows and thick wavy black hair with a fringe falling well over his forehead. His ears stick out a bit and are slightly pointed.

      He is a bit far sighted, so he wears a pair of large square silver rimmed glasses, and often forgets when he has them tucked down the front of his shirt or pushed high on his head. They tend to fall down onto his nose unexpectedly and he has a habit of shifting them nervously, as if trying to hide his eyes. He sometimes has trouble with eye contact and fidgets a lot.

      During rainy weather his hair has a tendency to behave strangely, waving around as though underwater. Sometimes it also reacts comically to magical fields, frizzing up or falling in his eyes or otherwise misbehaving.


       

      Personality:

      Ignatius is a bit dreamy, easily distracted by a book or something new, which can make conversation with him difficult at times. He’s often to be found daydreaming and often takes a moment to respond when spoken to. This lack of attention means it’s fairly easy to get him to agree to something without realising it. 
      Occasionally he can be quite sarcastic when angry or annoyed, usually when someone insists on distracting him from his work. But he rarely holds such behaviour against others, and if you can get his attention he can be an excellent listener. 

      He can be forgetful of the time which can severely impact his marks, though he adapts well enough to tests that he usually squeezes through. Practical work can be a bit of a challenge for him when he's under pressure to perform, but he flies through written work with ease.

      He’s always been a follower rather than a leader, but his curiosity leads him to hang around with ‘troublemakers’ even if he doesn’t directly take part in their adventures. He has a spirit of exploration buried deep inside him and will often ineffectively hide behind a book when trying not to seem interested.
      Of course sometimes this means he’s left holding the baby when things get sticky, but he possesses an uncanny ability to talk his way out of almost anything. He’d never use these powers for evil, oh no definitely not.
      He has something of a blind spot in romantic situations, it’s easy to make him flustered or embarrassed. He’s easy to tease and tends to get quite tongue tied. 

      Ignatius is kind, but often misunderstands a lot of social expectations. There have been times when he has inadvertently upset someone by trying to hard to be a ‘good friend,’ or accidentally bypass boundaries. He might bring someone flowers when they’re feeling sad, leading to misunderstandings and trouble along the line.
      If someone does manage to make him angry, it’s usually as a result of someone hurting someone close to him, or someone injuring themselves or others through carelessness. He can get quite worked up in these situations and it takes a lot to calm him down. He can hold a grudge for days on end and it can be a while before he’ll let go of his anger.
      When holding a grudge he can be rather childish, refusing to speak to someone until they have admitted fault, or more likely bribing him with something he likes or his favourite treat (Nougat.)

      Iggy likes cold weather, thunderstorms, high places and animals. In his spare time he likes to find a high place to read, because they tend to be deserted. His strengths in magic lie in defensive spells and charms, as well as caring for animals and plants. He's rubbish at transfiguration and divination, and despite his enjoyment of the subject he is only marginally competent in potions. 

      His hobbies are ink painting and sewing, though he also makes felted animals and enjoys flying.

      Connections:

      His parents, Renart and Cassiel, came from opposing faerie alliances which made their union somewhat controversial. For the most part Ignatius has been kept away from the inner politics, but there are fae who would both mean him harm and those who wouldn't. His parents only sent him to Tally in the understanding that the school's protective forces would keep him safe.

      Practically speaking Ignatius might know of some prominent fae figures, but have no influence or connection with them. Any involvement in fae politics is purely as a result of his parentage.

      Significant Dates:

      None

    Ignatius was initially born in Australia and raised by his two parents, Cassiel and Renart. Both parents had very different ideas on how to raise a child and it was something of a ridiculous adventure for both of them, as parenting so often is. Cassiel was the sensitive, down to earth sort who helped with his homework and Renart was the one who’d encourage him to have fun, even sometimes pulling him out of school to go off on a wild adventure somewhere. 
    Both his parents are Daoinan Sidhe, which meant Ignatius' upbringing was steeped in wild magic and the inner politics of the fae. 
    (Note: Renart is male and the ‘father,’ where Cassiel is non-binary and usually referred to by name or cenn in place of mum/dad, coming from cennend, an old English word for ‘parent.’)

    ‘Iggy’ naturally takes the most after Cassiel, being studious and serious much of the time. But Renart has also instilled in him a hidden sense of adventure. He finds his curiosity can be stressful to keep under control at times, as he feels he has to behave. With enough coaxing he can be convinced to come along for a variety of adventures, so long as no one is likely to get hurt.

    Both his parents worked much of the time but did their best to stay home when they could. Renart is an Auror which means he are often at work, or travelling around the world where different jobs pop up. Cassiel seems to dabble in many areas of employment, including arts, but their passion is animal conservation. 
    Ignatius was homeschooled by his parents until recently, as their travels made it impossible for him to stay at school for more than a few weeks at a time. They used approved textbooks and course material from a variety of curriculums, so he found he was able to pass the fourth year entrance exams for Tally.
    His parents have a house in both Sydney and London, as their respective jobs often require travel between Australia and the UK. 

    They keep in touch with Ignatius via Ophelia, Cassiel’s Barn Owl, and Hoodwink the Eagle Owl. Neither went with Ignatius to Hogwarts as both parents need them for work, but they have promised to send them with letters.

    Iggy is most looking forward to learning how to play Quidditch, because although he had flying lessons from his parents he has never had the chance to really hone his skills. He enjoys flying a great deal whenever he can get the chance.
