Personality

Emmet is a quiet bloke most of the time, preferring to spend his time watching and observing people, rather than interacting with them. He’s got a keen intellect with a sharp wit and a somewhat deranged sense of humor. Emmet fancies himself a songwriter and he can sing, but doesn’t share that with anyone, except when he goes out for open mic nights at the clubs and cafes. The only way to get noticed and get his songs heard is to play them, but he hates getting on stage. Emmet hates being the center of attention, more apt to fade into the background and support other people being in the front.

He doesn’t share his songs because he’s afraid of what people will say, and would rather just keep them to himself than be ridiculed because of them. He loves music though, and wanted to work in a record shop, but figured getting a job where he could actually learn something and use his skills as a wizard would be better for him all around. Emmet got an apprenticeship with Olivander the wandmaker, and spends a lot of his time organizing the shop. The general disorganization really gets on his nerves.

History

Emmet isn’t a disappointment, even though he feels that way. He’s never been as strong, as smart or as Gryffindorish as his brother and felt that he’s fallen short of his parent’s expectations. He knows they don’t love him any less, but it still makes him feel a little put off about it. He doesn’t even bother anymore, trying to prove himself (well, most of the time, anyway). Emmet doesn’t mind being out of the limelight, but it would be nice to get more attention from his parents. When he was starting school he wanted to be a Gryffindor, just like his brother and parents, but the sorting hat had other ideas, deciding to stick him in Slytherin, instead.

The first year at school was horrible, he hated the way his brother looked at him and teased him for not being ‘the right kind’ of Belby. His parents mostly hid their disappointment, but when they had to go to Quidditch matches for his brother, they never really acknowledged that they had two sons in different houses, preferring to treat him like a Gryffindor instead. Emmet decided not to try out for Quidditch to keep everyone from fighting even more. He was able to push past all of it, especially with the help of his best mate, Caradoc, who didn’t treat him like he was really any different than who he was. When he left Hogwarts, Emmet got a job with Olivander, instead of going back to the record store like he had for the past few summers opting to work on something more fulfilling. He doesn’t quite think this is what he wants to do with the rest of his life, but he’s only nineteen and Emmet figures he’s got a lot of time to figure out what he wants to do.

Astrology

  • Star Sign: VIRGO.
  • Symbol: Vestal Virgin.
  • element: Earth.

Virgo in depth: Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and governs the nervous system and the intestines. Positive traits include a keen intellect, attention to detail, imagination, politeness, disciplined work habits, realism, practicality, skepticism, organizational skill, curiosity, and modesty; negative traits are anal-retentiveness, anxiety, hesitation, an inability to see the forest past the trees, insecurity, and obsessiveness.

The Slytherin Virgo: While these Slytherins might not be the most outgoing of their class, they are often among the most wise, and their canny observation and lightning-fast analysis of any given situation will take them far. Often behind that quiet mien hides the mind of a big dreamer, who had both the imagination to come up with a concept and the power to follow it through. These Slytherins are an interesting mix of politeness and politics, pragmatism and intuition. They make good alchemists, Ministry bureaucrats (well, somebody's got to do it), and academic advisors. They are often underestimated. This is most unwise.
