FAMILY DYNAMICS:
Orpheus lived with his parents and younger sister in Gloucestershire. He had a happy childhood, with early memories filled with pushing his sister on a mattress down the large front staircase and adding pounds of extra sugar to his mother's pies when she wasn't looking. Orpheus and his sister were the best of friends, being separated by only 4 years. He couldn't wait until she started school at Hogwarts and he could do his big brotherly best to show her around. He was sure she would be a Slytherin with him and as of his second day as a first year, began preparing to 'pass the torch'.

History
Orpheus was very different at school than he was at home. He was in Slytherin, adequate in most subjects, apt in Potions, excelling in Transfiguration. He wanted to go out for his Animangus License, Transfiguration being his favorite subject. He had high academic hopes.

Orpheus was very popular, very outgoing. Nearly everyone liked him, except for the obvious house rivalries. He got along well with most of his teachers and though was often in detention, it was never anything very serious. His typical offense was not completing his homework, having been too occupied with his friends to be bothered. No one ever really expected him to become a Death Eater.

But Orpheus was very insecure with himself. He often required the approval of others in order to think he was any good. As he grew up, he saw many of his housemates involved with Darker elements of magic and soon he was caught up with the wrong sorts of people.

The Death Eaters told him he was something, they told him he was capable of great things, that he would be a somebody, and he believed them. They had power and people respected and feared them. More than anything, Orpheus wanted to hold power over people; he wanted to be in control. This was his major character flaw, which had obviously played into his house sorting.

Horoscope/Personality
Very envious of those who seem to have an easier life than he has, relaxation and play do not come easily. Often feels lonely and isolated as an adult. Generally, has a good sense of humor that can carry him through when times really do get tough.

His mind is very curious and inquisitive, always seeking information on a wide variety of topics. The broader the subject matter the more it appeals. Prefers to deal with abstractions — the small but important details associated with any subject tend to slip his mind. A good detective, he loves getting to the roots of problems and enjoys finding out what makes other people tick. Orpheus is often eccentric and offbeat.

Known in his circle of friends for being blunt, honest and truthful. Known to others to be very willful, stubborn, tenacious and independent with a tendency to be snobbish and uppity. Always wants to be proud of himself and will never do anything that will make himself look bad. Orpheus needs the respect and admiration of others and enjoys attracting attention to himself. Everything he does tends to be self-emphasized and self-exaggerated. A great need for love, affection and reassurance, and a tendency toward vanity, allows him to have his head easily turned by flattery. The more insecure he is, the more he tends to be a showoff.

Intense and complex by nature, extremely strong emotional reactions to most situations. Feelings are often very difficult to verbalize. Therefore he has a tendency to be very quiet - - to brood and think a lot. Seldom gets overtly angry and tends to hold things in, but, when he does lash out, Orpheus is furious and unforgiving. When he makes an emotional commitment, it is total — not attracted to superficial or casual relationships. Orpheus tends to regard the significant people in his life in much the same way as he does his possessions — overly attached and much too jealous. If challenged, he takes it as a personal affront and tends to lash out and fight back in a vengeful manner. Loves mysteries and the supernatural.
