toby is a lanky teen. he towers over most of his classmates, with room to grow. a majority of the time he has no idea where to put his hands so he stands awkwardly with his hands in his pockets. his hair in usually kept groomed proper, and when its not, he stuffs it into a beanie. tobias wears glasses to see, but doesn't always wear them. a cute girl recently said he looked 'hot' with the thick frames off his face, so he's been bumping into everything ever since. tobias has warm brown eyes, thick eye brows, and scattered freckles on his neck, nose, and face. toby has a unique sense of fashion and puts more thought into his outfits than he's willing to admit, probably due to having three sisters.

tobias doesn't have many friends. he is a bit timid and shy when you first get to know him, but once he's past the awkward stage you can't really get him to shut up. tobias unknowingly forced himself into the 'dorky loser' role because he thinks people don't like him. he's the kind of person that chooses his words wisely and would rather listen and observe in a conversation than actually debate. toby is a very reflective individual and spends more time watching and observing his classmates than actually socializing. in no way is he cold, or closed off, he's just very selective at what he says, but has a pretty open demeanor about him. tobias is just kind of... ~there~.
he's very caring and compassionate, but tends to care a bit too much of what his peers think of him, so he doesn't always know how to portray how he feels properly. if toby were to see someone struggling or in need, he wouldn't hesitate to offer assistance, but only if he felt that he could help alleviate the situation. sometimes he struggles from being a bit of a 'yes'-man, since he hates telling people no (for some reason) and truly wants to be helpful. but it tends to bite him in the arse. like the cute slytherin who used him to copy his homework...over seven times. SEVEN. she was sweet to him in class, but in the hallways, great hall, anywhere else? she thought his name was tommy. what...
sometimes toby tends to be so polite that it makes things awkward. he will be the first to apologize, even if the other person purposely bumped into him. confrontation is soul crushing for him and he avoids it at all costs. if someone was to bother one of his sisters, or hurt them, he'd probably resort to talking it out, or hexing from behind, depending on the severity of the situation. though, typically docile, in heated situations he has trouble handling them with grace and may act out unpredictably. blame it on the raging, teenage hormones.

toby watkins hails from a large, middle class, half-blooded wizarding household on the outskirts of winchester, england. he's the eldest of four siblings and the only male of the lot. tobias loves his sisters and family more than anything and would go to the ends of the world for their happiness and protection. all of his siblings currently attend hogwarts with him, which stresses him out a bit, because he feels like he always needs to look after them.
at a young age, toby began showing signs of magical abilities. it all started in primary school on the playground. the kids would always make fun of him because he was 'weird', or too quiet. they'd laugh at him because he'd rather feed the birds, instead of talk to other kids. one day a bully was making fun of his sister, claudia, and he intervened by wordlessly lighting their pants on fire...with his eyes. he wasn't sure how he did it, but he had, and there was no explanation for the muggle teachers - or the boy with the burnt ass cheeks - but that's when he officially learned he was gifted.
after receiving his much anticipated invitation to hogwarts, it changed his life forever. finally, he felt like where he was supposed to be, he wasn't the weird kid on the playground. now he was just the quiet kid that didn't know how to approach anyone unless if they were covered in fur or scales. soon after enrolling in diviniation his third year, toby started unlocking other abilities he didn't know he harbored. he's able to see the future, but only glimpses, it isn't always accurate and often misconstrued, but he's trying to grasp the abilities while at hogwarts and takes it very seriously.
tobias has always been fascinated by girls and the female anatomy but has suffered from being painfully shy his entire life. he's never had a girlfriend, or kissed a girl, but he really, really, wants to. he's a bit of a hopeless romantic and when the right girl comes along he would love to sweep her off her feet. toby likes a seventh year slytherin, and has been stalking from afar, but she's waaay out of his league.
tobias is currently in the beginning of his sixth year. he knows that he wants to pursue a career involving care of magical creatures or healing. he'd prefer a career involving animals because people complain too much, but he wants to have knowledge for caring for for a humans if he ever needs to use it.
site events reaction:
toby doesn't believe in living in fear, but he's also a realist, and is always looking out for any signs of danger. he wishes he could get a more clear glimpses of what's going on in the world, but that tends to put his life into a bit of anxious chaos the more he focus's about these topics. its truly a blessing and curse. last year during the tri-wizard tournament, toby was constantly worried about claudia slipping her name into the goblet of fire. she's always suffered from being a reckless dumbass (and under age to compete)....she has always had a taste for mischief no matter what the consequence may be. but she didn't end up doing it.
he doesn't believe harry potter is dead. there's no way. like, c'mon, he defeated he-who-must-not-be-named. he's probably just playing a game of hide and seek and the bloke doesn't want to be bothered by your bullshit anymore. he's handling the integration of schools just fine, the over-crowding in classrooms bothers him a bit, but he understands they're living in dark times and coming together in unity is the one solution in times like these.
none, yet! mwah ha haa
