OUT OF CHARACTER
JOURNAL TO BE USED:fortiusfidelius
FULL NAME: Sébastien Noël Lestrange
NICKNAMES: Bastien, Bas, Git, Gitly, Great Git (the latter three reserved for his younger, pain in the ass brothers)
BIRTHDAY: December 14, 1914
SCHOOL, YEAR: Hogwarts//Slytherin//
YEAR TAKEN FROM: 1950
APPEARANCE: Brad Pitt
Hair: Dirty blonde, worn just below his collar and often tied back with a white ribbon, because he likes it.
Facial Hair: If you see it, he's got it, if not - well, he shaved. He likes a short beard every now and again but typically prefers a bit of stubble to if he's not going to be anywhere special.
PERSONALITY: (List at least five positive & five negative traits.)
‡ Strong willed
FIVE FACTS EVERYONE KNOWS:
‡ He loves animals. Particularly horses and dogs, and his vast stables and large kennels tell the story. He has no particular knowledge of horses, save for their care and the basics, he just appreciates good horseflesh and wants his stables full.
‡ He doesn't have very many friends. While it's easy for him to make one, or to find a person that finds him engaging, it's hard for him to keep them. He's very moody and tends to seek solace within his study alone until his moodiness passes and he's ready to face the world again.
‡ His slight limp comes from a Quidditch injury when he was sixteen. He slid off of his broom as it broached the upper levels of the Hogwarts pitch and hit the ground, hard, breaking his right leg in several places from the femur down to his small toe. During the winter he'll carry around a walking stick because the cold weather tends to make the joints stiffer.
‡ He's not a fan of most of his sisters because they're jerks and were jerks to him growing up. Though their relationships have vastly changed over the years and they've become friendlier, at least on the surface, there's only one, he says, he'd 'piss on if she were on fire'. But he adores his younger brothers almost to the point of ridiculousness.
‡ Since Hogwarts, he hates leaving France and will only do so if he has to.
THREE FACTS CLOSE FRIENDS KNOW:
‡ He has a bad heart, and has been told time and again that it's going to kill him one day if he doesn't take it easy. He refuses though. He would rather die young and living life the way he wants to rather than an old man with a laundry list of regrets and things left undone.
‡ He has a wandering eye which got worse after he married. Some of those closest to him know that along with his female lovers he has had brief affairs with men as well. In the name of experimentation, of course. Some know but no one talks about it, as homosexual acts are greatly frowned upon. And he'll certainly never tell his wife.
‡ He's had a recurring dream since he was seven. In it, he sees everything from his own point of view; the burning house, two bodies twitching on the floor, gasping their last as he collapses on the floor next to them. It terrifies him. He's convinced himself that that's the way he's going to die.
TWO SECRETS NOBODY KNOWS:
‡ One kill he made affected him badly. It was an accident, a six year old muggle boy threw himself in the way of an internal fire spell aimed at his father. There was nothing he could do to help him, though after he made sure his target was down, Bas held the little boys hand and reassured him that he wouldn't hurt anymore, that he would be better soon the entire time. He's much more careful now to get his victims alone.
‡ He loves his brothers, but is deeply envious of the relationship they share. And he doesn't even know the half of it.
Sébastien, more affectionately known as Bas, was born fourth child and first son and heir to Amaury Lestrange and his wife Marianne nine days before Christmas Day, 1914. Being an unexpected gift to the Lestranges, his his much older sisters gave him a lot of grief growing up. They had settled in with the belief that the innumerable wealth and vast holdings of the Lestrange estate would be divided amongst the three of them as there had been no male heir to claim the fortune. They resented him, never physically hurting him, but humiliating him with every opportunity that presented itself, and he, in turn, disliked each of them as well.
Because of this, he took to being alone, exploring the large library of whichever of the Ancestral Manors (one in each France, England, Germany and Spain), they happened to be in at the time, and falling in love with Muggle Science, particularly the study of Astronomy from their point of view, picking up a love for literature, mostly written by wizard's, but also found love for many of the great Muggle authors and poets of the time. His mother was also very protective of him because he was a bit sickly as a boy. It was discovered that he was born with a defect in his heart, precisely what couldn't be diagnosed with the tools of the time, but all it took was a listen to his chest and a diagnostic spell to know that there was something wrong, that his heart was far from normal. His healer encouraged his parents, stressed in fact, that he should take it easy, and perhaps he would grow out of it. Which of course, made Sebastien determined to push himself more, to not let a diagnosis like that hold him back. That decision would kill him later, but not until many, many years and a great deal of strenuous activity later.
Around that time of his diagnosis, Bastien developed a fascination with fire. He would sit staring endlessly into the flames of fireplaces in the library, the heat and swirling colours drawing him almost hypnotically from his reading. There was no conceivable reason for it, but later on when asked about his penchant for starting fires (and he got much, much better at it when magic was introduced) he would simply say he saw something in the flames that no one else could see.
He excelled at Hogwarts, his best subjects naturally being potions, history an astronomy, and was very athletic much to his mother's horror and dismay; playing Quidditch as a seeker (and serving as team captain from year five on) and swimming, fencing and boxing in his spare time. He was a better than average student who always raised his hand with the right answer and was always willing to help other students with their studies when they needed it. He was seen as a good boy, if not a bit quiet and anti-social, so when the random and destructive fires started around the school, no one even considered pointing a finger at him. He started to delve into the world of dark magic with the encouragement of an older student in his house. His father also nudged him in this direciton and they exchanged dozens of owls over the years discussing the principles of magic and technique. When Sebastien was at home and now that he had a wand of his own, his father showed him precisely what he could do with it.
Near his 12th birthday another unexpected gift to the Lestranges brought what would later in life be to him his greatest loves and the most fiercely loyal friends a man could ask for in the forms of his younger twin brothers, Etienne and Laurent. When he came home that summer he was a bit hesitant to meet them, but only for a moment. One of them, he doesn't know which, latched on to his finger tightly and met his eyes and Bastien was a goner. In that instant he became their protector, and swore that he would always see to it that they were happy, safe and loved. And doted on, which he did as much as a twelve year old possibly could.
During his seventh year, Bastien was informed by his father that a marriage, to another Pureblood had been arranged for him. He knew of the girl, Rosalind Bungs, a Ravenclaw in his year, but the two had never spoken, and he doubted they had even had a class together. Marriage was inevitable whether he chose his partner or not, and since he had no real or close to acceptable prospects, Rosalind would have to suit. She was attractive, and he decided getting an heir on her wouldn't be difficult when he decided it was time.
He approached her in an effort to get to know her before they were married, and in her he saw a woman, a girl that he would be able to bend to his whim. He hadn't gone to her to seek this out, but had found it and recognized it, and in that one afternoon knew that his marriage would be as successful as he made it.
They were married a short time after they were done with school, and he began slowly 'training' her to be the wife and partner that he wanted. In all ways. It was easier than he thought it would be, and she took to his instruction well, it was almost as though she wanted it and liked the structured way they lived their lives and the way he controlled every aspect of her being. He enjoyed it as well. As much as he had never expected to treat a wife in such a way, he certainly enjoyed it, and the two of them slipped easily enough into the roles that it wasn't long before it became second nature.
The occasional short-lived indiscretion (and too much 'experimentation' with men to ever again consider himself entirely straight) were his very limit, and he refused, to love anyone who wasn't his wife, vowing that he would never do her a disservice like that as he had - some feelings for her. What they were he couldn't easily identify. Not giving his heart away was an easy thing for him given his views on love, and how they weakened a person and made them vulnerable. It was bad enough that he loved his brothers to distraction and cared for his wife, to love someone who couldn't defend themselves or be defended as they would have been folly.
In the middle of summer of 1946, he was called on by one of his younger brothers, Etienne, to attend a meeting held by one of his former classmates, Tom Riddle. The man was enthralling, tantalizing, and his message was clear, it was something Sebastien had been taught his entire life and agreed with wholeheartedly. It took almost nothing for him to get caught up in this movement, and soon, found himself marked along with his brothers.
He earned his Lord's trust, quickly, was sent on the most important missions, allowed to take the best spoils of 'war', and even willingly bore the brunt when his Lord perfected his created spells, despite the trouble he had with his heart, and how very weak he was beginning to feel from time to time. He pushed on though, continued with life as he wanted to, hoping that by doing so he would strengthen his heart instead of killing it further.
It was in that first year that Bastien murdered his first muggle, a man that refused to move out of his way and then spit on his shoe when Sebastien asked him as politely to step aside. He followed him after, and cornered him in a deserted alley. Without a word or even visible movement of his hand, the man combusted, fire burning pure white as Bastien watched on with amusement. It was simple, and he didn't think much about it afterward save to replay it in his mind, conjuring ways to perfect it for the next time. White fire soon became his MO, earning him a bit of a reputation which of course he denied fervently.
In 1950, Sebastien became a father for the first time. He had an heir, and that was all, he decided, that he needed. He was grateful that his first born wasn't a daughter because of the way his sisters had been with him, and thought though he was positive they were done, that a little girl would round out their family nicely. Whether that will happen or not is a decision for his wife to make. But a little girl had always been a quiet wish of his. He can't say why, but throughout Rosa's pregnancy he saw himself watching a little girl grow up, and his heart warmed at the vision. Being a father hasn't changed him very much over all, or at all, really, but he's still so very new at it.
