    • PB is negotiable;
    • Keira Hammond's ex-husband, and father of two sons. Here's his ex-wife's crazy family tree;
    • Born to a small, impoverished pureblood family;
    • Only child;
    • Gave up custody of his children due to his own workaholic tendencies and lack of family members to rely on;
    • Unaware his ex-wife never loved him (thus, can't be a Legilimens);
    • Anything not mentioned is up to you.

    Born in Melbourne to a pureblood couple whose status had fallen from grace, Junior lived in the same street as the Hammonds for as long as he could remember - for as much as he struggled, at least the small family had inherited a decent house from their ancestors. The hardship humbled the family in such a way they no longer saw themselves as superior, and Junior was brought up alongside the first of the Hammond kids, Keira, whom had been born just a few months earlier. Unfortunately, she was a Squib, while he displayed a strong magical aptitude early on in his life; it was a great pain to repeatedly leave his best friend behind every time he had to go to Tallygarunga, as they could only afford him going to a public school. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, however, and over the years the man slowly fell in love with the Veela he only saw for short periods of time.

    One thing led to another a little while after they graduated, and Keira became pregnant with their first child while attending college. Pressured into getting married by his family, Junior tied the knot (and to his surprise, it seemed that Keira felt the same) and it didn't take too long for them to conceive a second son. Fortunately, the older Hammonds had their back when it came to monetary costs and with dealing with the children while they finished their education.

    For as much as he loved her, he can't recall a time when their relationship wasn't rocky at best - whether it be due to their workaholic tendencies, having to take care of children or complete lack of romance in their lives, it felt plastic a lot of the time. He wanted to work on it, even stretch it out for as long as he possibly could, because the romantic side of him refused to accept things couldn't work after having gone through so much; but, when they were 25, Keira gave him a much needed wake up call by stating she wanted a divorce. It was amicable, and he wound up giving custody to her as his parents had moved out of town and he didn't feel like his career of choice went along well with having to take care of two young children. Given that their maternal grandparents took care of them most of the time, it only felt appropriate.

    Despite his choice, even if he doesn't realize it himself, he's a very present father. He insists on visiting his children as much as his schedule permits to the point it gets in the way of his personal life. Maybe he should reassess his options with time, given his finances are expanding with his competent performance at work as well...

    • The split between himself and Keira was amicable, and they're on speaking terms; but to what extent? Are they the best of friends like they used to be? Is there some resentment over her deciding things weren't going to work out? Does he still have feelings for her after all this time?
    • It's likely that he runs into his ex-wife's family members while visiting his children in Whitlam Bilby. Does he get along with them still?
    • Having to share a department with Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons, his ex-wife's cousin, might make him slightly uncomfortable. That specific Veela family tends to be very protective of one another after all.
