Marak aka Marak is a half-blood wizard. He wields a 11" Vine, Ashwinder Ash wand, and is a member of the unsorted masses of Hogwarts students just off the train eagerly crowding around the Sorting Hat.

About Me
When Marakailan (Marak for short) was seven years old, his family was attacked and slaughtered for the simple fact they were not pure-blood. The only reason he survived was he hid himself in a trap door under his bed. After the smoke cleared and he ventured out, he was left with the task of burying his father, mother, and elder sister. This hardened him to the pain of loss. Taking up residence with his uncle, he quickly learned the art of potions: how to heal, how to torture, how to kill.

By the age of eleven he was quite the talented brewer. His letter came as no surprise, nor did his high marks in school. However living with his uncle had its cost: Studies first, friends second. As he aged he learned the reason for this. On break one year his uncle lay dying, cause unknown. No matter which potion he tried, Marak was unable to save his uncle. Dedicated now to his craft he searched every tome in his uncle's library, craving the knowledge that eluded him when he needed it most.

During one such search he discovered a locked box. Using his magic to open it he found a series of scrolls, vials, books, and notes. His uncle had been dabbling in alchemy. Compelled to honor his uncle's memory he delved into it, greedy for the answer he sought. He will not rest until he finds the right combination to halt Death.
