Character Information
Portrayed by Jake Cherry
Name: Brody Niall Iolar
Birthday: April 7, 1923
Position: Professional Quidditch
Puddlemere United
Lineage: Half-blood


Brody is your typical teenage boy. He has a thin, lanky body, and at 5'6" he's still growing into it. He has pale skin, lightly freckled from the sun, and a mop of curly brown hair on his head. His eyes are an olive green, and his mouth is usually turned up in a friendly smile. He has a scar just below his left knee, faded into a thin pink X. When in class, a pair of rectangular glasses sit on his slightly squished nose.

Brody wears his school uniform 99% of the time at Hogwarts. But when not in uniform, he tends to go for comfort over style. He wears sweaters and dark slacks, or maybe a button-down shirt if he's feeling especially fancy.


Brody was born the middle child of Shane Iolar and Caitlin Iolar (nee Rashley). His brother Kellan was born three years before him, while his sister Margaret was born six years after. Both of his parents commuted for their jobs, with his mother working as an Unspeakable for the Ministry while his dad went to Dublin, where he owned a small but well-known interior design agency for the magically-gifted. Shane was especially well-known for his realistic sky ceilings. The family got by comfortably, mostly on his father's salary, in Tipperary, Ireland. The house itself was small, but it sat on a decent amount of land that gave them plenty of distance from their muggle neighbors and was bordered on three sides by a large bog, for an extra level of privacy. Brody's childhood was spent playing in the yard with his older brother, all under the watchful eye of Grandma Iolar.

Brody was always an inquisitive child, although he was never the sort of kid to keep his nose in a book (he was, in fact, a bit of a late bloomer in the reading department). He preferred instead to learn about the world around him in his own way. His father had a shed that he used as a woodshop that Brody revered with all the solemnity a child can muster, and occasionally his dad would work on small woodworking projects with him. Together they made wooden cars that Shane would charm to putt around on their own. When not with his dad, Brody spent his time exploring his family's land, looking under logs and climbing trees. By contrast, his brother Kellan was the more athletic of the brothers, and Brody often was forced into practicing quidditch or playing catch with his older brother, even though he always lost.

When it came time for Brody to go to Hogwarts, everyone was a bit shocked when he ended up a Ravenclaw. Even Brody. He felt slightly out of place among his studious new friends. He had a difficult time adjusting to classes at first, since where he excelled at classes like charms and potions, he was equally a failure at things like history and astronomy. The style of learning just wasn't what he was used to, and he often grew impatient with books and charts and memorizations. He also found himself in occasional trouble for doing his own experiments, usually hidden under his bed.


Ten and one quarter inches, hornbeam, reasonably pliant, with a dragon heartstring core.



Kira is Brody's two-year-old cat. She's pretty laid-back, as cats go, as long as she has a warm place to nap and someone to scratch her behind the ears.

When it came time to choose electives, he took up Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, and Care of Magical Creatures as his electives. By that point in his education, he was still searching for his direction in life, and he was constantly trying to think about what would come next.
