[ APPEARANCE ]
Dorcas is a fairly built young man with eyebrows arched a bit unusually higher which gives him a gentle and kind look. His messy lemon cream hair stands out in a crowd. He is rarely seen upset and has always worn a curious look on his face. Quite surprisingly, he wears his uniform as neat and proper as it could be despite his rather messy looks. He is a genuine sweetheart which is a rarely seen quality in the House of Slytherin.
[ PERSONALITY ]
O EASYGOING AND FRIENDLY
Dorcas is the type of person who will speak to the person if he feels the need to. He can also be very informal when talking to people, such as calling them "dude" and "bro" instead of last name basis. He is easygoing, such as forgoing past atrocities in just a short period of time and rarely keeping bitter thoughts on others.
O AMBITIOUS AND COMPETITIVE
Despite his childish antics, Dorcas is very competitive and ambitious. He hates losing above all and will do any means to get to the top.
O QUICK-WITTED AND RESOURCEFUL
Dorcas is also quick when it comes to spell mastery and casting reflexes. Even in a shocked state, he can still respond enough to pull a stunt to narrowly escape instant death although still capable of sustaining fatal wounds.
X SUBCONSCIOUSLY APATHETIC
Dorcas displays an unusual sense of detachment to both humans and things. He would appear clingy to something but once taken away from him, he would rather feel empty and dissociated with it like it was nothing. It makes him faster to recover to tragedies than most of his friends therefore mostly mistaken as sheer mental fortitude. His reflexes moves differently with his emotions and can completely shut himself of mercy if needed be. This is a trait innate to Dorcas which he also doesn’t seem to fully grasp within himself.
Dorcas is definitely not the type of person to lay on the bridge and let others cross. He would always think of his own safety above all. He won’t take risks unless guaranteed a high chance of not landing into danger. He has a tendency to be passive when it comes down to risky encounters to spare himself of danger which turns to be an inconvenience to others.
X SELECTIVELY HONEST
It is hard to tell if Dorcas is being honest or not, especially since he has a ditzy and lackadaisical personality. Although he may look gullible and loose-mouthed, he sometimes tend to withhold information and tweak a bit about the things he's asked. On most cases, he just gives off vague answers if he doesn't want to lie nor tell the truth...
[ BACKGROUND ]
Dorcas is born in Darley Abbey, a village in the outskirts of Derby, England. At age 7 he has already shown promising talents of being a powerful wizard by frying the household circuits and scrambling the tea cups in the china cabinet out of anger when his father accidentally broke his favorite wooden truck. Instead of being upset with the mess their son had done with the house, his parents overwhelmed with joy and fully supported his newfound talents. He received an invitation from Hogwarts at age eleven. He even waited for the owl which carried the invitation outside and hugged it tightly upon receiving the letter.
Upon arriving at Hogwarts, he was fascinated about the Sorting Hat and thought of getting into Gryffindor. Finally it was his turn. As soon as the Sorting Hat was placed under his head, it spoke:
"Hmm… Hmmm… your courage will make you a Gryffindor. Gryffindor, is it? But you have the wits of a Ravenclaw. Would Ravenclaw define what you are? But unbeknownst to all, as they turn a blind eye, you are cunning and your ambitions will set you high… "
Alas, the Sorting Hat has decided. "Slytherin, it is!" He was finally sorted into Slytherin. Slytherin?! It distraught him so much considering the negative reputation that Slytherins have in Hogwarts.
His first year had been tough since he was not a person who would like talking about blood purity. This made his fellow housemates be disgusted in him. But being the friendly person he is, he was able to get friends mostly outside of Slytherin. He could not please everybody but at least he got out of unpleasant situations a lot. He had also made known his great aptitude in wizardry to his professors in his first years, always being one of the first ones to master the spells taught and excel in it. He has always fancied the Quidditch but proved no talent in riding broomsticks. He was very clumsy which made him crash to the window of the headmaster's office and almost received a detention had it not for his professor who explained it was all as an accident.
On his second year, he learned Serpensortia. He was also amused in Parseltongue though incapable, thinking it was a rather cool ability. He would cast Serpensortia and make random hissing sounds to make it seem like he was doing Parseltongue, a thing that greatly concerned his friends. It reached his professors and he got reprimanded for it thus promising not to repeat it again. He had always been very fond of the stories of the wizards' struggle against Lord Voldemort but he never told anyone.
His third year was rather normal and mundane. However, it was this year where he learned one of his favorite spells, Incendio. Other than that, he did nothing out of the ordinary and continued to participate with the campus events.
His fourth year changed him so much. After being exposed to the cruel events that happened during the closing, Dorcas became a bit shaken about how he views himself. His most vivid memory was when he left Karl alone to struggle in the Devil's Snare while he kept himself safe. Although the former survived with minimal injury, Dorcas still couldn't help but feel guilt in himself for not doing anything. He was quick to overcome his short depression when the World Quidditch Cup happened along with various festivities.
During this recent summer vacation, Welner had a small talk with Dorcas about wands and their proficiencies. Being told that Yew and Dragon Heartstring would make a formidable combination for a wand, Dorcas was determined to buy one for himself in hopes that it would help him do better on his classes. He bought one immediately on his next trip at Ollivanders' and was given an option to trade off his previous wand for easy disposal to which he quickly disagreed. It is rumored that the wand he bought has a twin...

• Pet Name: Mr. Darcy
Note: Mr. Darcy is actually a female chameleon which Dorcas mistook as male. But nope, Dorcas wouldn't listen to anyone. He is 1000% convinced that Mr. Darcy is male.
"Hey, Mr. Darcy… you don't look too happy today. What's wrong, buddy?"
- Dorcas when checking on his beloved Mr. Darcy
Snobbish || Distrustful || Poker-faced || Greedy
Mr. Darcy is quite the prideful chameleon and refuses to be touched by anyone other than Dorcas himself. She also seems to hold disdain for her given name, giving an impression of making a much more morose face than her default bemused face whenever called. Lately, her snobbish behavior seemed to have gone worse since Dorcas doesn't give her as much attention anymore.
