This is the third in a series of portraits featuring Jimmy, Sheen, Carl, Cindy, and Libby as wizards and witches in the not-too-distant future of the Harry Potter world (and my gift to my secret santa, Katia711). Since they live in America and not the UK, they attend Hogwarts U., a branch of Hogwarts founded in the U.S. shortly before the Salem Witch Trials (it’s on the fanon wiki, which exists for exactly this sort of nonsense). The characters are in their 3rd year in these pics, so that makes them about 13(ish?) years old.
Sorting Hat Says: RAVENCLAW! Although the house of wisdom and wit might seem like a strange place for the academically-challenged Sheen, the Hat knows what it’s doing. Sheen excels at out-of-the-box thinking, has a remarkable (one might say obsessive) memory for things that interest him, and is hella freakin weird. Still, his poor grades and odd behavior have made him a bit of an outcast among his fellow Ravenclaws, which is perhaps why he’s made all his closest friends outside his own house.
Wand: Dogwood with unknown core, 13 inches, surprisingly swishy
Pet: None. Instead, he has a bewitched action figure of his favorite wizard, Xavier Rastrick, a flamboyant magical entertainer who vanished unexpectedly while tap dancing to a crowd of 300 and was never seen again.
Family Background: Sheen never talks about his mother, and since none of his friends have ever seen her, her fate is unknown. He has a good relationship with his father, a magical repairman who is more than happy to indulge his son’s peculiar interests.
Best Subject: History of Magic. The famous witches and wizards of the past are like comic book heroes to Sheen. His interest in their stories gives him an edge over other students in the class, who tend to be more interested in the celebrities of the present. However, because he treats historical figures more like legends than actual people, he occasionally mixes up fact and fiction…which gets him into a lot of arguments with his teacher.
Hobbies and Extracurriculars: Sheen is an avid collector of Chocolate Frog cards, and he’s memorized volumes worth of obscure details about every single individual who appears on them. He loves blabbing about that one time Glanmore Peakes slew the sea serpent of Kromer, or the time Flavius Belby survived a Lethifold attack, or the time Norvel Twonk saved a muggle child from a runaway manticore… and God forbid he really gets going, because then he might just launch into a yarn about Mirabella Plunkett’s life as a transfigured haddock, and then you’ll never get him to shut up. ;)
Sheen spends most of his time with Jimmy and Carl. He actually looks forward to the boy genius’s inevitable screw-ups, because that means an adventure is sure to follow. He is quite open about his crush on Libby, and can frequently be found tagging along with her.
At his worst, Sheen is: Scatterbrained, impulsive, and obsessive. He often wildly misinterprets situations, and his hyperactivity gets real annoying, real fast. He can also be a bit of a womanizer, especially when Libby isn’t there to keep his rear end in line.
At his best, Sheen is: Hilarious, genuine, and intrepid. Inspired by his heroes of the past, Sheen has on many occasions risked his own safety to rescue his friends, particularly Libby and Jimmy. He frequently cracks jokes, and his bizarre sense of humor alternately amuses and exasperates the people around him.
Random Fact: At Sheen’s insistence, Jimmy once brewed an aging potion so that he and Carl could experience life as adults. Jimmy screwed up, as usual, and the three of them spent the next 24 hours as old men.
