<br>WAND: 10 inches, Elm, Pheionix feather
<br>BLOOD LINEAGE: pure-blood
<br>FAMILY RELATIONS: Arutha Valsen (Father), Elia Valsen (Mother), Nicholas Valson (younger brother).
<br>PATRONUS CHARM: Sting Ray, His happiest memory is receiving his own wand at olivanders. As soon as he picked it up he felt a rush of power and ambition. At that moment he knew he could do anything if he tried hard enough. He felt powerful like the world could be forced to bow at his feet.
<br>DEMENTOR: He once made a fool of himself in a childrenís competition, making an silly mistake that cost him the win. His father and mother called him an idiot and beat him for it. After which he nearly he had a breakdown and went into seclusion for about a month. Not because of what they had done but because of what he was doing to himself. He could not handle the idea that he wasnít smart enough to win everything. The idea he could make stupid mistakes was not something he handled well.
<br>BOGGART: Himself, only as an blundering idiot without his natural intelligence. His fear essentially is being perceived as stupid.
<br>AMORENTIA: The first smell is that of old parchment, or books in other words. Which represents hidden knowledge to Elias and secrets yet to be learned. The second scent is that of clean clothing or freshly washed fabric as he is something of a compulsive neat freak.
<br>VERITASERUM: Once in his third year Elias decided to sneak into the library and get a look at some of the books in the restricted section. Mainly the books on the dark arts. He could not the resist the lure of spells he was not supposed to know about. The power they represented was too much of a temptation. He was never caught however as he arranged it very carefully.
He also once used a nasty hex on a muggle at his fathers instruction. He had been seeking to teach Elias how pathetic the muggles were as Elias had not understood why he hated them so much. Elias had done it and caused the mans face to disfigure. He didnít however learn the lesion his father had intended to teach, instead he learned that his father was a fool. He lost respect for the man who judged others by birth instead of their abilities and intelligence. Not that he would ever admit as much to his father.
<br>MIRROR OF ERISED: Becoming head master of Hogwarts and recognised as the most intelligent and skilful wizard in the world.<br><br><p>
<br>APPEARANCE: Elias has sky blue eyes and curly golden blond hair. It is fairly thick and curls all around, he takes care of it well as he is quite vain about his appearance. His skin tone is quite a pale white to the point it looks like he does not get outside much, which is true.
When he is outside an not in his house colours he prefers to ware thick clothing. Usual black and woollen that covers all his skin. Although vain he is also sensitive about showing too much.
<br>PERSONA: Elias could best be described as a very gifted individual but emotional unable to handle things at times. He is one of the most intelligent students to ever arrive at Hogwarts and extremely gifted. However his image of himself as being super intelligent is also his downfall. If it is destroyed or damaged by others he breaks down and is unable to cope with it other than with anger and aggression. He also is extremely arrogant about his abilities which makes him easy to taunt.
The rest of the time he is extremely cold and calculating. He uses his intelligence to get what he wants and humiliate others at ever opportunity. He likes to make them look stupid so he looks smart. As a result his grades are very important to him. If he failed at a class it would be such an ultimate disgrace he would likely hide for a week. He also has similar extreme tendencies where he is very neat and tidy. if someone moves his things he always knows and freaks out at all. He also has a similar aversion to dirt and refused to do things that would result in him getting dirty.
His ambition to succeed and find power is party derived from his academic success and need for others to 'bask in his glory.' His ultimate aim is power such as that found threw dark magic. He sees it as an easy way to become stronger. As he had no real moral centre he had no problem with using any of the worst spells known to the magical world. Fortunately only in his sixth year he is still limited in what he knows.
1) He is extremely intelligent
2) He works very hard in an efficient manner
3) He is quite perceptive
4) He is very determined and does not give up on a task until it is done
5) He is very neat and tidy
1) He handled criticism of his intelligence very badly
2) He has no morals what so ever
3) Emotional he is a little unstable and could have a breakdown if under too much stress
4) He is over sensitive to stimuli like light and sound
5) He never shares credit for his achievements with anyone else
1) Receiving praise
2) Getting good marks
3) Washing his hair
4) Humiliating others
5) Spending his fathers money
1) Stupid people
2) Getting dirty
3) Doing tasks he sees as below his dignity
4) Divination which he sees as a divine waste of time
5) Having to be nice to people who think they are his friends but he only needs so he can use them. Most of Slytherin house falls into this category.
<br>HABITS OR QUIRKS: He is frequently touching his hair to make sure it is exactly right. Even as he does other task, weather from habit or just worry about his vanity. He often treats Raven claw students a lot better than those of the other houses as he judged people on intelligence and nothing else.
Elias was born into a pure blood family, the first son of Aruth and Elia Valsen. A family long stepped in a tradition of muggle abuse and arrogance. They lived in the pace on glory long gone and spent vast amount of gold on maintaining that image. Fortunately the family fortune is almost endless so they get away with this. Elias was raised for a young age to think he was special, that he alone was a cut above the rest. This elitist attitude initially failed as he was a logical boy and didnít understand why blood made a difference. However he later found a place for it in his life when he started to mix with other children, pure blood children of course. He soon found he was much more intelligent than any of them. They didnít grasp things as quickly or instinctively as he did which made him something of a leader among them. He soon became quite arrogant about this and thought of himself as something of a child prodigy. His parents where happy to encourage this belief in their son.
Although he pretended to go along with their contempt of muggles or half bloods he didnít really believe it. Instead he felt a more general contempt for anyone he deemed as less intelligent than himself. This consists of most of the worlds population. When he was 11 he was finally ready to go to Hogwarts school. He got his wands a magical moment for him and went off to school. His parents assuming he would be in their house Slytherin like they were.
However during his sorting the hat seriously considering putting him in Ravenclaw instead. His abilities and perception of them meant it was a far more suitable house for him. However he also posses a dark ambition and need for power in his soul. A need to force his beliefs on others and to use unscrupulous methods to achieve them. More than that he wanted to be in Slytherin with other children he knew when he as growing up. People he knew he could manipulate. As such he was put in that house. At Hogwarts academic success is the most important thing for him. His grades are of course very impressive all across the board although his favourite subject is charms.
I chosen to write about Elias being sorted into his house.
He wasnít nervous, not even a little bit. He didnít care what his parents thought they were imbeciles both of them. He needed them but he had not respect them for a long time. Yet even if he wasnít nervous he knew what he wanted, what he needed. The green house with the silver serpent banner was where he belonged. Its pride and cunning just what he needed to get just what he wanted. He closed his eyes as he waited for his turn. He just wished the trip across the lake had been less windy. All eyes would be on him, as they should be he was important and gifted. Yet he just wished he had time to fix his hair, it was all jumbled by the wind. He ran a hand threw it trying to fix it to no avail. Before long his name was called out. Now suddenly he was nervous, his previous self confidence dashed in the heat of the moment. It all came down to this. He kept poised however he would not embarrass himself, he walked calmly over and allowed the hat to be dropped over his eyes.
It spoke to him in his mind. This wasnít a surprise it felt some how appropriate. It told him he was smart, perhaps more so than anyone else in the room. He had great potential academically and the hat knew that was very important to Elias. It said he would do well in Raven claw, that they would nurture this talent. He felt a burst of emotion, red hot anger. How dare the blasted stool cushion tell him what house to be in, he would tell it what he damned well wanted.
He told the hat that it would place him in Slytherin and that was the end of the discussion. The hat chuckled, which enraged him further. It said he used his intelligence to undermine others and to manipulate them for his own ends. It said that indeed Slytherin was where he really belonged. What judged a man was not his abilities but how he chose to use them. Happy at this pronouncement Elias took of the hat which preceded to shout out for the rest of the room "Slytherin "
