Truly, if there is a god of destiny, he is fond of plot twists... and so am I.
We're all stories in the end. Make it a good one, eh?
Nearly got hit by a car today, but a female sheep stood in the way. I can’t thank ewe enough.
Did you know? A squid has three hearts.
Did you know? The inside of a kangaroo's pouch is supposedly really stinky.
Did you know? A koala's appendix is approximately 2 meters long.
Just remember, chief. Live your life without regret... and always split your aces and eights.
Dom has enhanced technological knowledge due to his time with his mother.
Beyond that, he's on his third year at Tallygarunga.
He's also been slowly studying about being a Seer.
He's received the family curse. He'll be a Seer at the cost of his eyesight one day.
His parents are rather renowned in their fields, so everyone knows Dom's background, especially because he'll tell everyone he can about some new gadget coming out or new curse that's been broken.
He plays the ocarina on weekends on the grounds. Sometimes he'll take requests, but he'll usually just play the songs he likes while jokingly passing around a hat in hopes of a little spare change.
Ever the prankster, Dom's likely pulled a prank on every new student at least once.
Dominic tends to overcompensate when it comes to his impending future by making the most of the now. He acts like there's a death sentence on him, even though it's just his eyesight. He tries to live every day to the fullest, filling way too many things in the waking hours. After school, he's usually made plans with at least three separate people and is usually out either right until or just past curfew. He needs to slow down, but try telling him that.
Dom's joking nature with people has been received both well and poorly by others, but he'll continue to act this way because it's fun, and damn the consequences. He's never intentionally mean-spirited in his jokes, and has had to defend himself on more than one occasion, but he feels life is too short to regret not Charming someone's cereal to act like a geyser.
Underneath it all, he's scared of what's to come. He masks it by playing the clown, but when he's alone, he's buried in research on a way to counteract what's coming. He refuses to accept the future, even though he'll one day be Seeing it. He doesn't let others see this side of him. He's afraid of what they'll think. On top of that, what if it was all a fluke and the Seer thing wasn't real? He would be subjecting them to this seemingly crackpot side of himself for nothing.
Ever the tinkerer, Dom likes to take things apart and figure out how they work. He's still not adept at putting it all back together properly, but he's trying. He's also moved this into his spellwork, attempting to deconstruct spells and figure out if there are more optimal ways to do something or another spell that does similar things to what he's studying. A lot of his processes are similar to Curse-Breaker work, but Dom's not working with actual curses... yet. Still, he feels that to know something means to take it apart, blast it to smithereens, and then put it back together like new (with a few extra bits left over, of course).
Dom stands at 5'3" holds his head high when he walks. He's thin with a little muscle, but closer to an average size for his age. His eyes are brown, as is his hair, which is kept short in the back and sides and swept back up top. His ears jut out just a bit, but he doesn't try to hide them. His nose is a little fat, resting just slightly off center of his face. His lips are full and pouty, and don't think he doesn't use that to his advantage. His olive skin is not your typical Aussie color, but that's the Italian in him.
His general clothing outside of school clothing consists of a t-shirt with some obscure band no one knows on it, and pants with usually one or two holes, maybe a rip in the knee. Even if they don't work, he'll usually have some kind of earbuds around his neck or in his ears. He also carries a knapsack full of tools and other items (books, ocarina, etc.).
Dom is an only child, so he constantly craves attention from his peers. He likes to clown with most everyone. He's often attempting to modify electronics to function properly on school grounds, with varying success, so most of his friends hang with him because of that. There are very few who he considers to be close friends. His teenage vanity gives him thoughts that if they knew that he was a Seer and was going blind, they wouldn't be his friend anymore. Not everyone's that petty, but he would rather not risk it, especially since he hasn't had another vision since the first one. Still, best way to befriend him is to enjoy music and share it with him.
Dom loves his family, of course, and likes to brag about both parents' achievements. He's happy to help either of them in their work, even though he usually has no idea what he's doing. This leads him to help his mother more than his father as electrocution is the worst thing that could happen if he messes up with her. His grandmother has been trying to teach him how to harness his Seer power, but to no avail. She knows he'll come into the power one day, but she wants him to be as prepared as possible. He loves spending time with her, but she gives him homework all the time. He gets enough of that at school.
Dom hasn't really felt true love (Or what he would think is true love) yet, so there's not much to say here. Again, that attachment is something he's looking to avoid until he gets over the stigma attached to being a Seer. Hormones being what they are, however, there's every chance Dom will have to confront this situation sooner rather than later.
Love him or hate him, so long as he's on the minds of his classmates, Dom doesn't care. That said, Dom's temper is as volatile as his wand core, so it wouldn't be too surprising to find him zapping someone with a minor spell if he's pissed off. Aside from that, he does enjoy pulling pranks on others, regardless of how much they like him.
Dominic was born in Alice Springs to Joseph, a Curse-Breaker, and Melissa, a Computer Tech guru. He spent most of his childhood with his mother, as his father would always travel for work. This made him a bit of a mama's boy, but it also gave him time to learn the ins and outs of technology. By the age of 7, he was already taking apart electronics in the house and (mostly) putting them back together, much to his father's chagrin. Melissa encouraged it, of course, as the only way Dom would learn would be to tinker with everything.
One day, Joseph decided to show Dom the type of work that kept him away from home so often. Joseph had obtained a small locket that would melt the flesh of anyone who wore it. As he was deciphering the best way to break the curse, Dom felt sick. He stumbled and fell as visions flashed in his head. He couldn't decipher them. They were blurred flashes, disjointed. He screamed and passed out.
When he woke up, Dom frantically looked around, finding his father asleep at the side of his bed. He woke him up, telling him that his plan for the locket wouldn't work and would backfire. Joseph, a very accomplished Curse-Breaker, didn't believe him at first, but Melissa came in and said that he was probably right. She had been on the phone with Joseph's mother, Susan, who believed that Dom had the family curse, despite it only happening in females. Apparently, Susan had a similar reaction during her first vision, so it was possible Dom had them, too. Dominic was confused, but they explained that the family's bloodline would give rise to Seers every other generation. Over time, he would be able to control the ability, but would lose his eyesight more and more until he was blind. Joseph assured him it would be years before he ever had to worry about that, as his mother didn't go blind until her 50s.
Going to Tallygarunga, Dom took the opportunity to look into potential preventative measures to losing his sight. Surely some magical being had figured out a way around this issue. His results weren't too promising, so he instead decided to start looking at technology. The problem, of course, is getting tech to work properly in school and other magical places. Still, he spends most of his free time tinkering with some piece or another. As for school life itself, his past two years there have been rather uneventful. He struggled with Transfiguration, but excelled in Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts. He also took an interest in Herbology in hopes of finding some herb that could help his impending malady, but to no avail, yet. As his third year loomed, he decided Divination could possibly help him learn more about his ability, so he signed up for that.
