Kamar aka Kamar Mishuka is a 22 year old (DOB: February 3, 1995) muggle-born wizard living in Hogwarts. He wields a 13½" Oak, Ashwinder Ash wand, and is a member of the unsorted masses of Hogwarts students just off the train eagerly crowding around the Sorting Hat. His favorite Harry Potter book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and his favorite Harry Potter character is Dumbledore.

About Me
Poverty is the scorn of the world, a most dreaded and pitied force. However, from the austere ashes blossoms forth a benediction, an emerald sapling of strength and wisdom, of the sort no man born rich could possess.

Kamar's mother was a dark-skinned African woman, and his father a white English man. His field of work, which will remain confidential, led him to travel the globe, at one point bringing him to a certain area of Africa. Here, he met a young woman, beautiful, even in her poverty. They eloped, and he brought her back to his homeland. She was pregnant, at this point, and gave birth to Kamar. (It was during this time, presumably, that his name was jotted down for enrollment in Hogwarts.)

Hardly a week after giving birth, the woman wished to return to her family back in Kinsasha, Congo. Her lover did not wish this of her, and demanded that she remain in England. A furious quarrel took place, and in the end she was sent back to her home with Kamar, but the father cut all contact, abandoning his child.

In Kinshasa, Kamar was raised in grievous poverty, barely educated and generally near the point of starvation. He wore ragged, dirty garments, and spent most of his days wandering the streets with other children, scavenging for any meager morsel of food, their shaky limbs often giving way.

When Kamar was six, his father spontaneously returned, but stayed for only a week, offered no financial assistance, and departed angry. During this pointless stay, only one thing was achieved: Kamar's mother was pregnant, once again. She soon held another precious son in her arms.

On his 11'th birthday, Kamar received an owl from Hogwarts. His mother was acceptant, and readily absorbed the magical lore, shedding tears of happiness for her son, as he might now have a better future.

Hogwarts funds paid for second-hand school supplies. Kamar did not mind - it was far better than anything else he had ever owned.
