Name: Ambrose Fawley
Occupation/House: Hitwizard - Demolitions Specialist. Former Slytherin
Wand: Aspen and Dragon Heartstring
Patronus: Ambrose has never produced a corporeal patronus
Physical Description: Ambrose is tall, around 6'3", and very thin. He has light blonde hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. His features are severe, with a sharp chin and cheeks and a razor-thin mouth. His mannerisms are precise and his appearance is always carefully calculated. He dresses well in tailored suits, and styles his hair parted and slicked down, though it frequently becomes mussed during the day as he can't help running his fingers through it.
Personality: Ambrose is very cold and does not show emotions readily. He does have a sense of humor, but it doesn't come out often, and it is nearly always in the form of sarcasm. He knows that his appearance and manner tend to come across as unapproachable or even creepy, and he is satisfied with that fact. He doesn't want to be approached at all by the vast majority of people. He prefers to be alone most of the time and has not found many people in his life who are worth spending time around, so he tends to deal with them only as long as absolutely necessary.
History: Ambrose comes from one of the sacred twenty-eight pureblood families. His father, Aloysius Fawley, was very devoted to the traditional pureblood views and entered an arranged marriage with Ambrose's mother, pureblood French witch Simone Martineau. They had four children, of which Ambrose is the youngest. Aloysius and Simone never got along well, and they did not hide it from their children. Emotions in the Fawley family were always bottled up, and occasionally they would come to the surface as a major fight. Ambrose learned to conceal his emotions almost entirely, which led to a very cold and severe affect even at a very young age.
Ambrose grew up in a time when an obsession with blood purity was starting to become shameful, so his classmates were already cautious of him even in Slytherin. He was a loner in school, and his cold demeanor paired with his meticulous grooming earned him the nickname "Ice Queen". He was in second year at Hogwarts during Severus Snape's time as headmaster, but that did little for his popularity, even when his father and oldest brother became death eaters. This was the last straw for Ambrose's mother, who took his sister and returned to France.
After Aloysius's death at the Battle of Hogwarts, Simone changed her and her daughter Veronique's names to her maiden name, Martineau, and they have had little contact with the other Fawley children since. Ambrose's oldest brother, Crispin, was sent to Azkaban after the war, and even though the restrictions at the prison are less severe than they once were, Ambrose has never visited. This led to a major rift with his other brother, Quinlan, who maintains a relationship with Crispin.
During his time at Hogwarts, Ambrose became particularly skilled at potions, and his interests leaned toward the explosive. He also became skilled at dueling, which was of course not a school-sanctioned activity. While he didn’t make many close friends during school, his reputation as a dangerous dueler earned him some respect.
When he applied for the Hitwizard training program after Hogwarts, there was a minor investigation into his connections with dark wizards. Eventually it was decided that since he was a child when his father and brother were involved with Death Eaters, he had no connection to that. It’s true that he feels no allegiance to Voldemort or the wizards that may try to follow them, and he doesn’t care about blood purity, but he is not above using dark magic when the situation calls for it. But then, many of the lightest of wizards working for the Ministry feel the same way, even if they are not so upfront about it.
Ambrose has been assigned a few partners during the course of his work at the Ministry, but most of the partnerships ended due to personality conflicts. While there is hardly a person whose personality could be more different from Ambrose's, his partnership with Maverick Erasmus has worked out well.
