Group: 1st Years

Nationality/Blood Status

Half Irish/Half English
Jack is a technically a half-blood wizard, son of Mr. Seamus Finnigan, a half blood Wizard and Mrs. Katie Bell Finnigan, a full blood witch.

Archimedes - Eagle owls are a species of owl. Wizards are known to keep this species as pets and they can be bought at Eeylops Owl Emporium in Diagon Alley in London. Eagle owl feathers have magical healing properties and are used in potion-making. Due to his habit of exploding spells he often needs a good healing potion.,_Eurasian_Eagle57_CRC.jpg

Physical Appearance

An Irish/English boy with sandy hair, standing about 4'1" with a decent build from constant sports and exercise. However he is often seem with soot on his face and clothes when performing spells.

Personality and interests

A fun loving kid with a good sense of humor despite his destructive nature. He loves to play sports and is very well trained on a broom by his mother. He has a need for adventure which does get him into trouble at times. As for academics he is a decent student most classes and above average in Charms, Pyrotechnics, Broom Flying & Defense Against the Dark Arts.


Jack was raised as a normal upcoming wizard in the magical world by his parents Seamus Finnigan and Mrs. Katie Bell Finnigan. Oddly enough he seemed to inherit his father knack for destruction magic and his mother's knack in broom flying. Due to his destructive nature Jack was only allowed to practice magic under strict supervision in fear he might blown himself or something important up. He remembers hearing stories about his father's silly moments of blowing up his assignments and his mother's tales of her days on the Gryffindor Quidditch team as a Chaser. Now Seamus works as an Auror and Katie is a Chaser on the Holyhead Harpies Quidditch team. Jack got quite good at broom flying while flying with his mother at home. He was a bit nervous as he was going to Hogwarts for the first time but felt better when he met Rhia Kingsley.

Random Information

Jack has an ongoing problem with his spells blowing up in his face. This is caused by his lack of focus and will when performing his spells since his wand demands perfection.
Oddly enough he seemed to inherit his father knack for destruction magic and his mother's knack in broom flying.
He is very very loyal to his friends.

Pyrotechnics: Whilst not a specific branch of magic, Jack is very skilled in his ability to conjure or create magic that will have a pyrotechnic effect like his father.

Snape's Potion Book: After meeting Rhia he accidentally found an old potions text book, a marginalia, including a variety of hexes and jinxes seemingly invented by an unknown student, and substantial improvements to the book's standard potion-making instructions. The text is inscribed as being "the Property of the Half-Blood Prince" which once belonged to Severus Snape.

Black Arrow Broom: The Black Arrow by Leonard Jewkes. Its a limited edition and only a few exist today. Leonard made it after his business was failing. He wanted to make the fastest broom on the market so he worked with a wand maker from Japan and they made made the broom out of black cherry wood with dragon heart string as a core for it much like a wand. Though it still is the fastest broom in the world it is incredibly hard to control and fly properly. Only the dedicated flyers can tame it's wild heart.

Quidditch Team
1st Year: Position Seeker. Set Record for Fastest Snitch grab in Hogwartz history. Helped House Gryffindor acquire the House Cup.
2nd Year:

PATRONUS: Fox (memory is flying with his mother for the first time)

Favourite Class

Broom Flying


Wood: Cherry
Length: 9"
Core: Dragon heartstring
Flexibility: Slightly bendy
Notes: The wand was described as expensive, he received it from his Great Grandfather.

Often the cause of his destructive spells.
This very rare wand wood creates a wand of strange power, most highly prized by the wizarding students of the school of Mahoutokoro in Japan, where those who own cherry wands have special prestige. The Western wand-purchaser should dispel from their minds any notion that the pink blossom of the living tree makes for a frivolous or merely ornamental wand, for cherry wood often makes a wand that possesses truly lethal power, whatever the core, but if teamed with dragon heartstring, the wand ought never to be teamed with a wizard without exceptional self-control and strength of mind.
