History

Liam's parents had both taught at Durmstrang, what with them both attending the school as students it was not very surprising. What was however was the fact that not one but both his mother and father had been infected with Lycanthropy after his birth, he was raised by werewolves. On June 5th, barely one month after his birth, the trio was ambushed by Dark Wizards. These wizards were also infected with Lycanthropy, perhaps bitten or born. Ruaidhrí and Aoibheann fought back against them, they fought hard. In the end they were both either scratched or bitten but they were still alive. As hard as this sobering fact was for them, it was even more difficult for Liam.

His parents insisted on taking him to Durmstrang, but Liam argued with his parents over this for years before it was even a proven fact that he was a wizard. They had no choice but to let Liam decide after his first display of magic. In yet another heated argument over where his education would take place, Hogwarts or Durmstrang, Liam protested his parents wishes so furiously, so aggressively, the seven year old boy from a standing position right before their eyes caused the shattering of every window in their home.

Liam had a tough time, controlling his anger after that. Being nice to people was respectful and, pleasant, most often he was that. When he was only 9 years old he also got into arguments with some of the Muggle children in his neighborhood. Because his magic was still new, and he had not much chance of controlling what he was doing and when he was doing, his anger could ignite all sorts of issues. Not only could he cause himself serious harm, but the people around him as well.

His parents, his mother more often than his father worked with him, to keep his anger in check. There was no way to prevent the 'switch from being flipped', and someone sending him in a rage, but it was entirely possible for him to not be a walking talking exposed nerve. A volcano of pent up aggression, volatile and lethal. When he was 11 years old, he received a Dogwood, Dragon Hearstring wand from Mr. Ollivander, and he was sorted into Slytherin.

Liam is a Muggle-born Wizard of English and Irish decent, his mother Aoibheann was a born of Muggles and raised by Pure-Bloods, and his father Ruaidhrí was also born of Muggles, and raised by a Half-blood family. He is 180 cm in height, and of average weight. With an eerie look about him, Liam's dark brown hair, and dark eyes can be very creepy when he goes into a manic hyper-focused state. Aside from his 'creepy eyes' he is a good looking individual, he could even be described as classically handsome when he takes the extra effort in making himself presentable by dressing as gentleman should.

Personality

Liam is generally serious, very intelligent, almost a perfectionist. He is prone to worrying too much and gets sad, angry or freakishly complacent suddenly by recalling past event. He is somewhat difficult to control because in the end he does what you think is right and what others say do not matter much. He is not stubborn but he does not trust many people—even if they are your close friends and sometimes family.

Abilities

Astronomy

Liam first began studying Astronomy because of the Lunar Cycle, he wanted to know when the full moon was coming, and when he would be safest from a werewolf attack. He became infatuated with the mysterious world up above him.

Photojournalism

He always had a knack for potions, it was while leafing through a book he thought to try his hand a Developing solution. He had never actually seen his own moving picture before. He had seen then, and it immediately became kitschy, until he could do it himself.

Papercraft

Liam keeps his favorite little hobby a secret. He developed a love for papercraft while making a small scale model of the phases of the moon. He was working from various moving pictures he had taken when a friend introduced him to 3d.
