Portrayed by Gregg Sulkin
Name: Bowen Carrick Nott
Aliases: -
Birthday: July 14, 1925
Position: Student: Slytherin
Lineage: Pure-blood


Bowen is a 16 year old boy, of British mingled with Arab, Pure-Blood heritage with olive skin and tag-along airs. Bowen stands at 5'8" and is around 135 pounds with a lithe and slender body. His shoulders are broadening and he is filling out with puberty. Bowen's face sports a broad jawline and holds eyes of clear, dark amber. His black-brown hair grows long and he sports a boyish fringe, which frames his face, and the back hairs flick up playfully. Bowen's thick lips, set in a handsome and inviting smile, showing off a perfect set of teeth, lying beneath a thick Roman nose and flanked by dimpled cheeks set below keenly aware eyes of brown and hooded by sculpted brows.

At the moment Bowen is wearing a Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry uniform. Rather notable by the green and silver colouring he must have sorted into House Slytherin. A grey vest edged in green and silver covers a crisp white Oxford shirt, buttoned from the belt to the collar and accented with a green tie with narrow silver stripes. The shirt is tucked neatly into matching gray trousers that fall to the tops of black shoes. Over all of this flows a voluminous black robe lined in soft Slytherin Green fabric, unadorned except for a silver snake slithering over a green background with a silver chevron sewn over the heart.


9 1/2 inches, Beech, Brittle, with a Unicorn Hair core.



Stygian, a female melanistic Barn Owl.



On July 14th, Bowen Carrick Nott, the youngest child of Cantankerus Nott and his bride, Eglantine Nott (née Bulstrode), was born. Cantankerus is a historian, genealogist and author while his bride is a Housewitch and avid socialite. They live comfortably within their means. Not too much excess, but allowance for a more extravagant desire or two now and again. One of these extravagances is their popular soirées thrown by Eglantine to impress her neighbours and her husband's associates. Bowen's father hardly ever has time for him, spending most of his time researching or writing about his research. Bowen idolises his father's influence and intellect, but his father has no patience for his feeble will. Cantankerus makes is clearly known that he didn't marry or reproduce for any other reason than to preserve the Sacred Twenty-Eight he tirelessly researched and wrote about; it was simply his duty as a Pure-Blooded wizard. Because of Cantankerus' strict views of genealogy he went to great lengths to calculate and devise the strongest and most fruitful possible line of Pure-Blooded wizards. It is, however, widely known that Cantankerus was not awfully impressed with weak-willed Bowen being the result.

When Bowen made that faithful trip to get his first wand when he was 11-years-old, he already had a wand in mind. He wanted one like his father's: a man whom Bowen greatly admired. And so, when they arrived at Ollivander's, he refused to try any wands that weren't exactly like his father's. Ollivander, knowing all-too-well that basic wands required more finesse than a simple demand, begrudgingly offered a compromise of giving him a wand with his father's wand wood, Beech. Bowen agreed, almost as aggrieved as Ollivander. In the end, when Bowen picked up his wand, it reacted erratically, causing a nearby vase to explode. When Bowen left the shop, Ollivander shook his head and muttered something about the carelessness of a wizard choosing the wand.

Hogwarts came upon him with ease and when the chance came to be a member of the Slug Club and the Magijugend (through his father's strong influence) he took it. For his third year Electives he chose Care of Magical Creatures and Ancient Runes. He decided to take his previous Care of Magical Creatures, Charms and Transfiguration N.E.W.T courses. He joined the Duelling Club in his 6th Year, possibly due to his brother's hobby being a duelist. While he is not the leader of the pack sort, he has a strong network of friends in Slytherin House and their little group has been developing a reputation for being formidable when crossed. It is very hard to please his father, but this band of friends he has, has his father rather delighted.

RP Hooks


Slytherin: Bowen began Hogwarts in 1936 and was immediately sorted into House Slytherin.
Nott Family Home: In the delightfully Muggle Free Village of Hogsmeade, Bowen lives with his parents, Cantankerus and Eglantine Nott nee Bulstrode at #1 East Crook Road.
Knights of Walpurgis: Bowen is one of Tom Riddle's hangers-on.
Blood Purity Encyclopedia: Bowen's father's talks about genealogy and blood purity made him able to discern people's blood purity by simply hearing their surnames, or their parents' surnames.
Notice Me: Bowen has a strong compulsion to impress the patriarchs of his family. At first, it was only his father but now that includes his brother, as well.


Purist His father is a rather fanatical purist and most of the little time Bowen spent with him was spent discussing blood purity.
Sense of Inadequacy Bowen often feels like he has something to prove. While this does give him a drive to improve (as to impress) it does make him insecure and easy to manipulate if you know the right buttons to push.
Wealth: Comfortable His family does well.



Father: (b. April 20th, 1884) Pure-Blood, Sacred Twenty-Eight. A genius genealogist. His research and publication will make it clear who should have power over who in the wizarding world.


Mother: (b. 1884) Pure-Blood, Sacred Twenty-Eight. A fine woman. Father married her because of her lineage. But she is so much more than a Pure-Blood Breeder to me. She has the most amazing spirit and is full of grace and charisma. She brings charm to the Nott Family. Which is a good thing with the sour dour countenance of her husband at the helm of the Nott Family.


Brother: (b. May 1st, 1917) Pure-Blood, Sacred Twenty-Eight. The great shadow caster. He is everything that father wants and everything that I want to be. Although, I often feel like I'm is what they used to call "The Spare" in regards to muggle nobility.


Sister: (b. 1924) Pure-Blood, Sacred Twenty-Eight. Open for Creation.
