Portrayed by Shia Labeouf
Name: Colton Viorel Higgins
Aliases: "The Pikey"
Birthday: June 4th, 1922
Position: Gryffindor
Lineage: Half-Blood


Colton is a boy with an impish quality. He has lightly tanned skin, hazel eyes, stands about 5'7" tall, and is approximately 130 pounds. His hair is unkempt and a shaggy dark brown.

His face is a smooth baby face with a slight chin, wide smile and slightly large for his face nose that gives him character. Evenly spaced from the thick bridge of his nose are small eyes. His dark hair sweeps and curls over his ears that much like his nose have yet to be grown into just yet. A habit of head bobbing comes in sync when he or someone else is talking, as if he needs to keep aware of the slower cadence of British English from the Shelta language he grew up in.

At the moment Colton is wearing a Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry uniform. Rather notable by the scarlet and gold colouring it must have sorted into House Gryffindor. A grey vest edged in gold and scarlet covers a crisp white Oxford shirt, buttoned from the belt-line to the collar and accented with a scarlet tie with narrow gold stripes. The shirt is tucked neatly into matching grey trousers that fall to the tops of black shoes. Over all of this flows a voluminous black robe lined in soft Gryffindor Scarlet fabric, unadorned except for a scarlet maned golden lion standing rampant over a scarlet background with gold fret sewn over the heart.


Back in ancient times on the Irish coast a Pure-Blooded Wizard Lord (as this was long before the Statute of Secrecy), Lord Quinn wanted his son, Aron, to marry, he gathered all of the most eligible pure-blooded ladies to their small castle for a ball and he hired a motley band of gypsies on as entertainment. Lord Quinn was extremely displeased when his son chose one of the gypsy girls, Mirela, over all of the pure-blood girls gathered. This love eventually entitled the gypsies a large plot of the young lord’s land. It is called Quinnland now and that band of Gypsies the Quinnland Clan and they use that land as a home base to this day. Colton’s family might be poor, mistrusted, constantly accused of being thieves and vagabonds. But Colton knows the truth: he comes from nobility, and he is proud that his family sticks through thick and thin and do what needs to be done to survive and be together. Colton has been all over the world and has learned many things about cultures and skills and other knowledge people twice his age only dream about.

School life proved to be difficult for Colton, not being with his family traveling around the world. Colton likes to think he knows every nook and cranny in the castle and environs. Truth is, if Colton's not in class he's somewhere he probably shouldn't be. He and Pringle, the Groundskeeper, are “bosom buddies” for all of the time Colton's spent in detention. Colton thinks the faculty is a goodly bunch, mostly. He's just not going to let them change him, that's all.

Not surprisingly his grades for the most part are barely a passing A. He however has a good solid hold on movement magic, and anything that will aid him in his future dream occupation of being a Curse-Breaker for Gringotts Bank. So it's History of Magic, Ancient Runes, Charms, and Defense Against the Dark Arts that he paid more attention to than the other classes and he took for his NEWT classes: Defense Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, Ancient Runes and Charms.

The Quinnland History

The best parts of Colton's family start at the beginning and at the end. If you ask Colton at least.

Once upon a time and all that rubbish it was hundreds of years ago when knights and ladies ruled tales. This is one tale Beedle the Bard missed out on, it's a shame because it would truly be his greatest story! A ship full of Roma Gypsies crashed onto the shores of Ireland. Most of them perished in the shipwreck, but some did survive. A band of Tinkers aka Shelta - Irish Travelers were in the area, squatting on the lovely plot of land that bordered the shore the Roma washed up on and a castle where they were heading to for a gig.

Well as Gypsy's always do, they took care of one another and the band of Shelta soon had those that survived back in good health and those that didn't were properly buried.

Together they continued to the castle for the gig. A noble was throwing a ball for his only son and heir so that he might finally find a bride. The Tinkers were the entertainment for the Ball. The noble wasn't disappointed with the atmosphere the Tinkers produced at the ball either. Well that was until he noticed that his son was paying absolutely no attention to the hundreds of noble ladies of good breeding he had brought to his castle. His son, Aron Quinn was too focused on one of the newer members of the Tinkers, one of their new Roma sisters by the name of Mirela who was dancing to the music her new family was playing.

When Quinn asked Mirela for his first dance you could hear the scandal sizzling through the air and his noble father's spine! After several dances where Quinn would only dance and talk with Mirela his father in a fury threatened to cancel the ball. To that Quinn replied that he might as well, because he had found the girl that he was going to marry, Mirela.

In a rage the nobleman threw all of his guests out and locked the Tinkers in. He demanded that they remove their gypsy enchantment from his son. Now among the Tinkers and even the Roma that survived were witches and wizards, but they truly had cast no spells. Quinn was very much in love with Mirela, and she was soon madly in love with him for all that he did to rescue her family from his fathers scorn.

The short of the long of it is that Quinn helped the Tinkers escape the castle and and after his father died old and knowing he had no heirs and his lands would fall into ruin, his precious noble prestige gone, Quinn still didn't marry Mirela, as his father forbade it, and Quinn was honor bound. But the lack of marriage didn't keep Quinn and Mirela from having a family together, and to make sure that his children would always be safe, he gave his beloved's family his lands.

Centuries later from their fairy tale beginning the Tinkers often stop in these lands, it's sort of their home base they always return to. The castle of Quinn now ruins high on a hill that overlooks the large meadow the Tinkers Caravan camp upon and from the highest tower if anyone dares go up into the rickety thing (which Colton of course often does.) from there one can see the rotten barnacle covered wreckage of the old Roma boat lain in the shallows of the shore to the south of their lands. The lands have long since been warded and so only those of their band of Tinkers and guests may see and find their way to Quinnland as they call it now. The Tinkers often return to Quinnland especially when a baby is due, just like they did when Colton's parents, Megs and Baird were expecting him. By the time Colton was 8 months old, they had lost him to crawling wanderings 5 times already. The frequency of his periods of wander only increased and grew more prolonged the older he got. Colton Viorel Higgins is the great-(a lot of greats)-Greatest Grandson of Quinn and Mirela. It's something Colton takes great pride in, and it's his favorite story to hear and tell.

RP Hooks

  • Irish Traveler - Colton has a great deal of trouble being trapped at Hogwarts for most of the year. In the muggle world especially his way of life is extremely looked down on. Even in the wizarding world there are many that look down upon the gypsy lifestyle. Don't feel you don't have to be the nice guy that accepts this Irish Traveler Troublemaker. I don't mind some conflict.
  • Quidditch Team - Colton has been the Seeker for the Gryffindor Team since 1935. His style on the Pitch is almost always Reckless win, lose or draw.
  • Curse-Breaker - The only reason Colton has continued his education at Hogwarts and chose to be away from his family for two more years entirely has to do with his goal to be a Curse-Breaker. Which Gringotts requires NEWT levels to hire.
  • Higgins' Shelta Wagon - Since turning 16 which makes him a man in his culture he's got his own Caravan now and while he's at Hogwarts it's often parked along the path to the school just on the edge of Hogsmeade.
  • Weakness for Redheads and Asians - What's a guy to do versus these beauties!?

Pidge: Colton has a weakness for a girl with brains, especially if those brains are underneath red hair. Lara is smart, pretty, sweet and nice to Sierra. What's not to like? He asked her out 5th year, but she only saw the goof-ball side of Colton and turned him down. He's done a lot of growing up since then and it seems she's taken notice. He looks forward to Hogsmeade Weekends to spend some alone time with her. It's a bit of a mess with his questionable feelings for Zoe. But it's not like they are really serious yet and questionable feelings are questionable. She said she loved him and that was real nice. A real nice cue for Colton to get cold feet and do a little jig into the friend zone.


Pidge: Zoe and Colton have been close friends and partners in crime since he was a firstie. Zoe was the one that showed him around and together they found many of the nooks and crannies of Hogwarts together. They have always been 'just friends' that was a mantra that was told over and over again. But when it came to the final good-bye, when Colton would be going back to Hogwarts and Zoe would be establishing her new business did a friendly kiss good-bye turn into a rather passionate snog. It was this kiss that Solstice discovered and feeling betrayed by the mantra 'they're just friends' broke up with him. It also interrupted things enough that it's left Colton wondering if anything more could really be there. But he's got school and she's got the cafe, so there's no real time to explore the chance. He does know that he misses his friend every day.


Pidge: Damndest thing this girl. Make real sweet music between the grudge slinging and lofty teasin'. Nice bit of a game.


Pidge: She really understood Colton, or so he thought. They were together the whole of their sixth year. But when she found out that he was enjoying more than the scenery of his family vacation spots in the summer of 1939, she broke up with him. He never meant to make her mad or hurt her. They aren't enemies or anything. Solstice just decided that his way of life was a bit too carefree for her.


Noble Empress: Cutest girl in the world hands down. Cutest. Girl. In. The. World. The. Whole. World. He knows, he's been around it after all.


Fellow Streetrat - She'd have made a better Traveler than some cooped up magical creature poop scooper upper! He looks forward to being a further bad influence on her.


Junior Auror - Poor kid takes things way to seriously at her age. Getting some fake Junior Auror Badge didn't help. If she had her way, I'd spend my final seventh year starved, Quidditch Free and not meeting the class requirements so I can become a Curse-Breaker. Sorry kid, I love ya, but that's just not going to fly with me. It could be worse, she could be doe eyed about becoming a Hitwizard. That would really put a strain on our good relationship. He misses the old fun loving Maddie!


Techno-Geek - Strange, prefers machines over people or animals. She's got a very nice mechanical owl Colton would love to have a 'see how it works' session with. She and Rylan would make a good pairing, cause she can be a bit on the stodgy fun dampening side sometimes.


Caring Stranger - When Colton came into the Malt Shop all beat up by the Black Pack, Carmichael was rather concerned and sounded like he was going to give the Black's what for. But that would have ruined Colton's fun with his revenge so he lied to the stranger.


Hogwarts Champion - The guy stuck his neck out and used his Champion title to rescue Colton from Pringle, so Leander was alright in Colton's book. Colton's pissed that the one good Slytherin got himself killed at the Triwizard Tournament. It chaps Colton so bad that the Magijugend that killed the Hogwarts Champion has sunk it's vile claws into Hogwarts.


Cronie - It's got to be tough being the body when his twin's got all the brains. Being a thug isn't all it's cracked up to be. Colton thinks Ripley might finally be learning this and is trying to get himself a bit of depth. He helped the lie his brother gave to Pringle to get Colton off the hook, so he can't be all bad either. It's a damn shame that Ripley left Hogwarts to go searching for the Magijugend to seek revenge for his brother's death and left Hogwarts wide open for the Magijugend.


Christmas Presents

When Colton went with his family and a bulk of the Quinnlands to Portugal for Christmas Holiday 1937 they stayed on the edge of a small town where everyone was simply MAD for lace and crochet making. The presents he brought back from Hols are all from Portugal.

Everyone that he knows that's not on a tab got a doilie of some kind.

These are the Christmas Presents given out to friends in 1939.
