It's time for a little rest and recuperation. After a tumultuous schoolyear culminating in coordinated attacks upon both Hogwarts and London, magical citizens could certainly use a break. Summer is upon us, and while the immediate danger has passed, not every creature is taking the summer off.

Negative Character Traits:
Personality: At twelve years old Lorcan Scamander is just beginning to come into his own but has already shown himself to be an odd mixture of his great grandfather, Newt, and his mother Luna. Mischievious and courageous at his very core, combined with an insatiable curiosity to understand and discover anything and everything he can set his eyes and hands upon, young Lorcan already finds himself to be the focus of his parents ire (loving though it is), and that of his instructors as well.
Though he feels an immense amount of compassion for those who he feels are treated poorly, or have fallen upon hard times, those judgments are made on a case by case basis rather than being based on affiliation to a group of people or a creed of any sort. Though he can't provide much in the way of physical help to those he sees as suffering or in need, his concern for them is worn on the sleeve of his robes just like every other emotion that he might experience.
It's likely that his classmates view him as someone who is positive to the point of being annoying about it. If someone has a bad day he is certain to try and get them to see the silver lining, accompanied by a friendly smile as he explains to them just how whatever it is that got them down always has something positive that can be taken or learned from. However, underneath that seemingly endlessly positive and upbeat attitudes rests a fuse that, once lit, does not take long to reach its end and ignite his temper. When Lorcan does get angry it is instantaneous, white hot and quite short lived. In one moment he could be telling someone who had upset him off, and in the next moment he could turn to someone else and speak to them as though nothing had disturbed his day whatsoever.
Of the greatest importance in his life to him, however, is his twin brother Lysander. Though not polar opposites, the two are not exactly alike either. Lorcan, being the more outspoken and spontaneous of the two, has a habit of getting his brother into situations that he otherwise might not have found himself in. And while they aren't "inseparable" in the way that they are never apart, the two have found their own friends and running mates at Hogwarts, any slight against Lysander is the one thing that Lorcan can not and will not forgive.
History: Lorcan Scamander came into the world seven minutes ahead of his brother, Lysander, and earned his nickname in doing so. Research of the meaning behind the name Lorcan reveals it to mean "little fierce one" and his lungs mustered every ounce of air they could manage to prove, along side his furrowed eyebrows, that the name was well deserved. As he grew and developed, it would seem that it was his destiny in youth to prove that his mother and father had named him wisely.
One might say that the early years of Lorcan's life progressed normally, and they did. But in truth they progressed normally with a touch of Luna's flair added in. As a young boy Lorcan desperately loved to hear his mother tell tales of nargles, crumple horned snorkack's, heliopaths and other creatures that his mother spoke confidently of existing, even though none had ever truly been found in spite of her best efforts searching the globe for them in the years after her education at Hogwarts was concluded. Never once did he show any sign of fear of any of these creatures, but more a desire to know more about them and see them for himself.
Given that both of his parents are Magizooligists, Lorcan has a certain affinity for the magical creatures that DO exist as well, taking a special interest in dragons in spite of the initial wariness by his parents. In fact, it was on a family vacation to Romania (where his parents had decided to take their twins specifically so that Lorcan could get a glimpse of them first hand) that his magical ability began to present itself. With his nose buried in a book as he walked down a crowded street in Bucharest, bits and pieces of paper (unbeknownst to him) began to gather together and flutter around him, forming into the shapes of tiny little dragons flying and fluttering around his shoulders.
Naturally his father and mother were thrilled that their son possessed the same gift that they had, in fact Luna herself had been rather distracted by the paper creatures that she hadn't even thought to hurry her son out of sight of muggles. It had been Rolf who had acted quickly before Lorcan had drawn too much attention to himself.
On the negative side of things the fact that Lorcan had presented his magical abilities first, it became a point of contention between he and Lysander for six months until his brother's magical talents manifested as well. There was often bickering and grumbling, and on Lorcan's part a bit of showboating, bragging that he was going to get to go to Hogwarts and if Lysander didn't catch up he'd be left behind. Typical big brother picking on his younger twin brother type stuff but it made for a restless few months for the Scamander family.
When it finally came time for the twins to go to Hogwarts, Lorcan proudly boasted that he would be a Ravenclaw much like his mother. He approached the sorting hat with confidence, having heard and read about the thing for some time, and the moment it settled down on his head the bloody thing screamed Gryffindor to his shock. In a haze he wondered toward the Gryffindor table where he was greeted with applause at the same time as his brother was taking his seat and having the hat placed upon his head. In that moment Lorcan didn't hear what the sorting hat had said, but to this day he can remember the smile on his brothers face until they made eye contact while Lysander walked toward another table.
His first year at Hogwarts has been rather different than he had expected it to be from the tales his mother had told him. All in all, though, it was successful enough with him managing to do well enough in all of his classes and not get expelled for doing anything too foolish.
Appearance: Lorcan is rather unassuming and plain looking, partially because he recognizes the looks that his mother gets for her sometimes odd fashion sense, and partially because he just has no taste in fashion whatsoever. He's content to just wear standard school attire while at Hogwarts, and at home he's content just to be in a pair of comfortable pants and a white t-shirt. Physically he has a few scars from playing a touch to roughly as a child, primarily one that runs under his right eyebrow where he once smacked his head off of a coffee table when his brother knocked him off the couch unexpectedly.
Much like his clothing, and unlike his personality, Lorcan's physical appearance is rather plain. He's not overly muscular, his smile though warm is not overly wide. His laugh is soft and steady, and his skin a touch pale like Luna's. However, his dark, curly locks of hair come from his father, Rolf. As do his unyielding brown eyes that, when met with the gaze of another, never seem to break or lose confidence.
