Mark Pickles


user posted image


Age: 21
Birthday: 1st April
Birthplace: Washington D.C.
Amortentia:

Appearance

Mark's untamed mop of blonde hair is one of the first things people see when talking to him. The locks can never agree on which direction to point so they tend to stick out every which way. Occasionally, Mark has enough and chucks a hat on to keep his hair at bay. His eyes are a rich, chocolate colour and full of warmth and kindness. On his face, which is notably attractive, Mark has scatterings of freckles which keep his face youthful despite the laughter lines around his eyes. He always has a big grin plastered across his face, whether he is laughing at a joke or smiling at something he is scheming. His smile is accompanied by dimples. As for Mark's build, he is fairly tall at just over 6"5 and has an athletic build from playing quidditch and running away from dung bombs. At the top of his right arm, Mark had a tattoo sleeve dedicated to space with colourful galaxies, stars and planets swirling. Above his elbow stands the silhouette of a boy and a man staring up which represents himself and his father and their connection to space.


Interests

Mark's interest in laughter and jokes naturally led him to his job at the joke shop. He is always scheming about new products he can import or create and thinking of new ways to make people laugh. On top of humour, Mark is always actively interested in quidditch. At school, he was a seeker for the Horned Serpent house team and saw them to victory several years running. Mark considered pursuing a career as a professional player but thought he would get bored in a job without lots of interaction. Academically speaking, Mark is similar to his dad in that he has always been interested in science and astronomy.


Personality

In short, Mark is an all-round nice guy. He loves making people laugh and people love him for that. Easy-going and relaxed, Mark is the kind of person you would want to be around in an emergency. Not because he would be able to do anything about it, but because he would make you feel better. Even in serious situations, Mark maintains a light-hearted energy.


History

Mark was raised by a single dad who is a certified genius with a job at NASA. Unlike a lot of people in his situation, Mark was never overly-pressured to be academic (despite being having his dad's intelligence) but was encouraged to have the confidence that his dad lacks. Despite the ability to do so, Mark has never desired to work in an office or a research lab but is still unsure what he wants to do with his life long-term. This was discovery was after spending two-years travelling around the states with his dad, working on internships with NASA.

While at Ilvermorny, Mark was awkward but he had the sort of personality where people just loved him. He was funny, easy going, athletic (he played seeker for the Horned Serpent house team), school representative, mentor, and an all around nice guy. After Ilvermorny, he wasn't ready to grow up and figure life out so he got a job working at the joke shop and hasn't regretted it.

Family

Dr. Layla Ashton (Mother) -
Since becoming estranged from Archie and Mark when cheating on her husband with an astronaut, Layla's life has been a little bit of a mystery. All that is known now is that she is rumoured to be having an affair with the Minister. Layla is a cold, calculating woman who is fiercely ambitious, even at the expense of those around her. She took Emerson with her in the divorce.

Dr. Archibald 'Archie' Pickles (Father) -
Archie and his son are very close. Since he divorced from Layla when Mark was eleven, their relationship has strengthened. Archie is a certified genius who works for NASA but what he has in brains, he lacks in confidence. When Mark was growing up, Archie encouraged Mark to be as confident as he could be. Unlike Mark's pushy mother, Archie always urged Mark to follow his instinct and was pleased for him when Mark left NASA to return to Greylock to figure thinks out while he worked at the Joke Shop. A kind, humble and gentle man, Mark hopes to grow up in his image.

Emerson Pickles (Sister) -
