Name: Theodore(Téodóir) Anthony Nott
Nicknames: Theo, Teddy, ‘Bug’ (by Edric, long story), 'Kiddo' (by Rudy), Dóir, 'Tea Cosy' (baby name)
Age: 20
Birthday: October 19th 1979
Astrological Sign: Libra
Astrology: This combination of sun sign and House ought to be nicknamed "The Magical Corps of Diplomats."
Slytherins born under this sign are poised, polished, suave, well read, well bred, and excruciatingly polite and
correct in everything they do - the perfect gentry of the magical world. Never a bully or a bravo here! No, these
Slytherins would say "I despise you and think your are worthless scum" and make it sound like "How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways..." They are discreet, sympathetic, easy to talk to, and know how to put people at ease. This
can, of course, be a wonderful asset in espionage (the flip side of diplomacy!) and these Slytherins are more than
capable of hiding their true feelings in order to get information or befriend a rival. Because they need to act in
partnership with others and hate to be alone, they are rarely decision makers, and must be careful who they seek to
befriend, lest they be led astray into the wrong crowd. Slytherin Libras also ought to marry into money if they don't
have much of their own, for their love of luxury and culture can make for extremely high maintenance expenses.

Family History: Edric, Laura and Theodore led a happy life for several years. Edric held a well paying
job at the Ministry as an Oblivator, while his mother was a practicing seer. Theodore led a life of privilege
and unrivaled happiness.

His father had joined the Death Eaters many years before, and after the Dark Lord’s initial fall his follower had
come seeking Laura, assured she could locate their master. One summer night, when Theodore was a mere six years
of age they struck when Edric was away, torturing Laura and their son in attempt to get their answers. Laura was
killed and Theo was left clinging to life, to be discovered by his father the next day.

This has caused great distrust in Theodore, and a fear of his powers, which were passed on from his mother.

Edric and Theodore gradually rebuilt their lives, Theo attending Hogwarts several years later and all proceeding
as normal as one could expect. At the end of his fifth year Edric was caught infiltrating the Ministry in an attempt
to steal a prophecy from Harry Potter. He was sent to Azkaban and Theodore was left on his own.

In his seventh year Edric was able into escape along with the others and father and son reunited once more.

Personal History:

Backstory/History - aka, where they have been between DH and Ascendant, and beyond: Fought in the final
battle despite his reluctance. He left with the rest of the Slytherins, but turned back once outside the castle, unable to leave knowing is father and lover would be fighting.

In the midst of battle he had two simultaneous visions, of his lover and of a one of the younger students, both
about to be attacked. In perhaps one of the only selfless acts Theo has ever preformed he ran for the child,
taking the curse – caecusious (a blinding hex) in her stead. His last sight was of his lover falling dead.

His father found him, speeding him away from the battle. The pair along with Edric’s friend Rudolph Atkins,
have been traveling for the two years since the war has ended, Theo adjusting to his blindness and to having
his father in his life again.

How the war affected them:
Theodore was swept up into the lifestyle of his Death Eater lover, believing he would be able to avenge his
mother. He tortured many people, some into madness, and after dealing with the death of his lover he began
to feel extreme guilt for the lifestyle he led. He hurt some of the most important people to him, most
notably- Michael Corner whom he tortured.

His dark thoughts have faded into the background as the years have passed, though thoughts of revenge still
flicker in the back of his mind.

Being blinded has caused him to re-examine his life, forcing him to accept help from others, and gain some patience.

Manner of Speech: Soft spoken, but can be sharp and sarcastic. If he raises his voice you’ve really

He held a relationship for most of seventh year with a Death Eater (name with held), who trained Theo in
hopes of taking him as a protégée, while Theo hoped to avenge his mother. He grew far more attached then he’d
ever thought possible, and though he refused to admit he was quite hopelessly in love. During the final battle
