Character Information
Portrayed by Booboo Stewart
Name: Tai Suzuki
Aliases: -
Birthday: November 26th, 1926
Position: Ravenclaw
Lineage: Half-blood


The first thing that stands out about this boy, is his asian descent. Hogwarts is by no means homogenous, but he does stand out with jet black hair that is kept under wraps mostly by virtue of it being short and easy to tame, and decidedly asian features and bone structure. By looks apparently in his mid-teens, he has dark brown eyes that may as well be black, and a complexion that is a few shades darker than white, with warm amber undertones. Although hard to tell under his clothes, he sports a fairly well maintained body, the epitome of the word 'toned.'

At the moment Tai is wearing a Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry uniform. Rather notable by the blue and bronze colouring he must have sorted into House Ravenclaw. A grey vest edged in blue and bronze covers a crisp white Oxford shirt, buttoned from the belt to the collar and accented with a blue tie with narrow bronze 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 Ravenclaw Blue fabric, unadorned except for a bronze eagle flying over a striped blue background sewn over the heart.


The leaves had turned a deep shade of red and had all but left the trees when Tai was born on the rather cold autumn evening of November 26th, 1926. Truth be told, Tai was the product of a one night stand around valentine's, his wizard father Takuya had been a little too enthusiastic lamenting his single-dom in the local, and went home with the muggle bartend, Elisse. Wanting to do the right thing, the two were wed… and funnily enough it actually worked out. The two had formed a quick, but lasting bond that night. Tai's childhood was one filled with love, with relatives from the Suzuki clan visiting almost year round. Constantly surrounded by both English and Japanese during his formative years, he grew up with a proficiency in both, to the chagrin of his mother, who was not able to learn much more than greetings.

The first signs of magic in Tai were clear to the Suzuki clan. Elisse was oblivious, but given for the child's penchant for making the stories in his books come to life on the page, she would soon find out, so the family started the process for having Elisse vetted by the Ministy. Without much sway in the muggle world she was deemed little threat, and during one long sleepless night of conversation under the watchful eye of the Minstry, Takuya saw her enlightened. Suddenly a lot of things started to make sense, especially the family members appearing out of no-where without a scrap of luggage… But now she knew, and that meant moving closer to the family, and leaving her mostly-muggle life behind. A new life is not without its trials, but she emerged unscathed for the most part, the Suzuki clan thankfully supporting the transition.

The remaining years of Tai's childhood before Hogwarts were uneventful and spent more or less in the company of his to-be companion, Nyanko. Believeing that he needed something to focus on to keep him from feeling lonely after the move, his father brought home a small kitten, purchased in the Magial Menagerie in Diagon Alley. From their introduction in the early days after the move, the tri-color cat would not stray far. Often times neither boy nor cat would move except for the former to turn a page, for hours. The owl would find them in this position when it delivered the letter that all knew was coming, admission to Hogwarts assured.

Beginning schooling in the autmun of 1937, the Sorting Hat deliberated for longer than was usual before placing him in Ravenclaw, with an almost faltering voice. Tai took to his studies well, taking a specific liking to transfiguration and conjury. With a love of animals deeper than just his companion, and his natual talent for works and strange tongues, his electives of Ancient Runes, and Care of Magical Creatures made sense, but Divination did not, and at times he has even wondered why he is taking it. With absolutely no talent on a broom, he was more content to stick to Book Club, and only after prodding from his father to do something more manly, did he also take up duelling.

Puberty for Tai came relatively early, late into his second year of Hogwarts, making him taller than most of his classmates and with a deeper voice, early on. It also left him with the realisation that girls would never be more than just friends. A throwback from his mostly muggle upbringing around a bar, and a father somewhat obsessed with womenfolk, he has felt compelled to bury this part of himself down deep. As a result he has grown adept at avoiding those he has crushes on, and at managing to fool the few girls he has 'dated' since starting at Hogwarts. He has also managed to let them all down relatively gently as well, knowing just what to say to keep things cordial while ending the semi-relationship.

RP Hooks

  • Japanese: Tai comes from the Suzuki wizarding family, at least on his father's side. The current tensions between Britain and Japan may be a talking point. If you want to learn Japanese, he is a generally patient teacher, as well.
  • Animal Lover: He will go after companions that are alone, be they cat, owl, or toad. Him returning a companion after a bit of a play session is standard, and should you have a more interesting companion he will likely want to at least meet it.
  • Soft Hearted: Play the damsel in distress, or even just drop your books and he will probably come forward to assist. And if you happen to be a cute guy, you may even make him blush.


  • Wealth: Comfortable
  • Muggle Minority: Gay
  • Natural Linguist
  • Animal Lover
  • Soft-hearted


Logs featuring Tai Logs that refer to Tai



Takuya Suzuki
Father: (1905 - ?) Wizard - Half-blood. Tai's relationship with his father is a little strained at times, as Takuya doesn't completely understand his son. He knows there is something strange, but Tai says all the right things so he shouldn't worry, but he does. Tai enjoys hearing about all of the locations his father as been to as a travelling salesman on a global scale, often asking for small presents from the places his father has been to.


Elisse Suzuki nee Starling
Mother: (1907 - ?) Muggle. Tai has an easier relationship with his mother than his father, she has always loved him unconditionally and was happy to hear about the complex stories that he made up about the people he saw out his window, even if she didn't understand half of them. He misses her now that he's at Hogwarts, appreciating the ear of a friend more now that he hasn't had it for a while.
