Chronicles at Hogwart: Meet My Character

Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!

If you’re a true blue Harry Potter fan, it will take just a nanosecond for you to figure out whose original words these are. Yes yes we miss the magic terribly hence, me re-conjuring it. Earlier this week, Joan @ Fiddler Blue organized a collaborative writing project called Story Mash Up. Here, every participant writes from his/her own character’s POV. Another continues the story using his/her own character’s POV. The story will be sitting 7 years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows concluded.

Let’s start this off with an introduction of my own character!

The wizarding world has been quiet since the day Harry Potter defeated the evil wizard named Voldemort. For seventeen years, the magical community continues to live in harmony and secrecy among the Muggles. The students, fresh from their summer vacations, are returning to school with nothing but excitement for the coming year in their minds. Truly, nothing could shake this era of peace ever again…or so they believe.

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CHARACTER

Watanabe Yokitori, nicknamed Yokito, is the son of Cho Chang, an eminent character before The Battle at Hogwarts. Shortly after the war, his mother married a Muggle of Japanese descent and went to live with him in the Land of the Rising Sun. The Watanabe family set up a business in Harajuku, the Asian equivalent of Diagon Alley in Britain. Theirs was an exotic sushi bar teeming with tourists from all across the globe.

Before Yokito entered Hogwarts, his school years were spent in a public Muggle school. Alongside that, he has to attend cram school, a traditional preparatory school, and take English as Second Language lessons. This is to favor his dad’s Muggle origin and if he were to be honest, despite the heaping lessons, he would want to pursue the rest of his studies that way. But alas, the Hogwarts letter arrived after a decade of living. What with the plastered smile and extreme enthusiasm her mom’s spirit showed, how can Yokito break that?

There you have it! Watch out for the story unfolding every week behind Yokito and other POVs of participating bloggers. Mine will be featured on January 3.

  2. I like Yokitori! His Hogwarts student ID is really cool! 😀 He and I share the same likes. I don’t think I would be a quidditch player either, haha. I would really like to take the flying lessons though–that would be so fun!
