Welcome to Priori Incantatem! We are an advanced animanga, fantasy, slice of life, and canon Harry Potter site with a rating of PG-13. The thematic is set in the close future of 2023.
register with proper capitalization: Oliver Owl.
First semester has come again, and all the Hogwarts students are ready to say good bye to summer and greet the autumn. This is a very eventful months for all the Hogwarts students. First travelling back to school with the famous Hogwarts Express, enjoying the Sorting Ceremony of the first years, exchanging holiday stories with peers over the Opening Banquet Feast, and getting know to new students.
Meanwhile, some students are greeted with new extra responsibilities, like becoming Prefects or Head Students, or taking over Captaincy or Leader positions in their respectful teams and clubs. New classes and new schedules keep the students busy too, which makes maintaining the social life and grades immediately a challenge. It'll be up to the students to sort out their priorities; studies or friends?
All witches and wizards aboard the Hogwarts Express from Platform 9¾!
Priori Incantatem welcomes everyone to a fascinating adventure into a modern version of Harry Potter roleplaying, where nostalgia of what we know about Hogwarts meets with new exciting characters we haven't met before. We closely follow canon and the Wizard World history for what has happened in the past, but entwine our own characters into the story to make it ours. Only the canon logic, occasional rules, and your own imagination is your limit.
Priori Incantatem encourages independent roleplaying and creative self-expression, and thus we have set the bar for players to be advanced level writers so that we can trust everything runs smoothly. Every player and character is carefully scoped by staff, and we have a zero tolerance policy for toxic environments. Our main objective is and always will be that each individual feels welcome, safe, and comfortable. And most importantly, that everyone has fun!

Write the story of the sorting ceremony here. How did it go? We need to know because everyone present saw it and should know. If a transfer/exchange student, expect the sorting to have been done right after the first years. If they have a complicated situation or change schools in the middle of the year, expect it to have been done in private of the Headmistress McGonagall's study. If done in the beginning of the year anyway (regarding the complicated circumstances that might require this), it'd take place in private before the official ceremony for the first years. They'll be only briefly introduced by name before the banquet, and told which house they ended in. If you are faculty, write how they got the job instead!
Oh, and do remember to choose the title of this section between "sorting ceremony" and "job interview." Also, as you may have noticed, the <*p> tag doesn't work here so use the doube <*br> to separate paragraphs, please.
MORAL ALIGNMENT:Chaotic Good
First and foremost, Kallias was raised to be a polite gentleman. Speak nothing but pleasant words, treat others with common decency, and most importantly; shield any personal feelings from those around you. Even it means wearing a mask, hide any venomous words or downtrodden feelings. As Alaire had painstakingly taught, the world is far from a friendly one. Be cautious, be suspicious, be paranoid, and never show your cards.
And, befitting his image of a good young man, Kallias plays by the rules. No dirty tricks, no crossing lines. After all, doing so is beneath him. As a result of his upbringing, the teenager is more than just prideful. Whilst he may not sneer at his classmates or belittle them, there is a part of Kallias that does think himself better. As such, blows to ego or humiliation is not accepted lightly.
Regardless of his arrogance, one would be hard-pressed not to call him charismatic. Kallias is an extroverted speaker. He's the type of person who doesn't struggle to find the right words. Like a showman, he draws his peers in close with flamboyant words and a mischievous tongue. It's true that he plays the role of a goody-two-shoes, that doesn't mean the teenager is above a good but harmless joke.
But for all his strengths, Kallias is incredibly far from perfect. He may be good at speaking to others, telling them what they want to hear, that doesn't mean he actually connects to them. Intense emotions from others (rage, sorrow, over-joyous) tend to overwhelm him. This often means that when people get sincerely close to Kallias, he more often than not sabotages himself.
The story of your character from birth to the day they boarded the train to Hogwarts on September 1st, 2023. Don't be afraid to go into details or bring up family history if needed. There's no word limit, though ofc we appreciate if it's kept compact because dem admins are lazy at heart. But who am I to judge, mine's like 5k. Go ham, buddy.

His favorite tea is chamomile tea
His favorite season is spring, mostly because of the rains
Kallias has the best memory for song lyrics; his favorite is newly discovered: muggle pop
Kallias is terrified of ravens because when he was five, Ilya frightened him with a tale known as The Raven's Spell. For some time he was scared that the god from the story would want him sacrificed next.
