Character Information
Portrayed by Preston Strother
Name: Adrian Arceus Carrow
Birthday: September 4, 1926

Adrian is a young adolescent with dark features. Deep mahogany hair lays feathered across his smooth, olive toned face. Heavy brows frame his almond shaped, chocolate colored eyes, habitually drawn down in a no-nonsense kind of expression. Adrian sports a strong jaw for his age, and a soft square chin, with a remarkably straight nose set in the perfece center of his profile.

Adrian wears his Hogwarts uniform neatly, sporting his Slytherin colors brazenly on his breast.


Adrian Arceus Carrow was born on September 4th, 1926, in the town of Pembrokeshire, Wales. His parents were Adrich Carrow and Lucia Bulstrode. While he was young, he experienced the sort of upbringing that one might expect of most militant, Pure-blood families. His mother and father were both stern, and "encouraged" him to study their family history as well as basic combative skill before he was old enough to go to school. It was their ambition that he go on to be a capable, if not feared, man who forged his own destiny and brought pride to the name of Carrow. Adrian, on the other hand, found the most interest in studying death and the ephemeral, with his focus being on ghosts and spirits which linger on the earth. He often read up on various such topics in his youth.

Adrian began his schooling at Hogwarts when he was already almost 12 years old. In his opinion, his September birthday was the bane of his schooling career, as he often was on the brunt end of teasing whispers regarding his "old age" compared to his peers. Many people suggested that the reason he was so old was because he was a failure as a wizard and got held back a year. Not that they knew anything, of course. While he succeeded brilliantly in such subjects as Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts, he found he did rather poorly in such subjects as Astronomy and Herbology. In his third year of school, Adrian began taking classes in both Ancient Runes and Care of Magical Creatures, which he found equally interesting, and has been doing well in.

It is Adrian's ambition to work in the Spirit Division of the Ministry of Magic when he is older. He isn't sure what the qualifications are, but he is doing his best to work his way up to that point at Hogwarts.

RP Hooks

  • Purist: Slytherins of a feather stick together. And Carrows are no exception. Adrian was raised with the firm belief that impure blood was tainted and inferior. What have you to say about that?
  • Duelist: Adrian is an avid member of the Duelling Club, and is game to duel just about anyone. Think you have what it takes to beat him?
  • Supernatural Buff: Adrian is fascinated by ghosts and spirits to the point where he purposefully seeks them out to study them. How do you feel about spirits? DO they frighten you? Interest you? Haunt you?

Adrich Carrow
Father: We don't have an extremely close relationship. He is most concerned with my training and what I can contribute to the Carrow family name.


Lucia Carrow nee Bulstrode
Mother: Mother is stern, but she does have a bit of a nurturing side - more than Father, anyway. She really wants to see me succeed, and I feel that she would be in my corner under most circumstances.
