About Me
Matthew Clark was born in America. His mother was killed in the line of duty when he was two. His father, Lance had fallen into a depression and, after nearly killing himself, he moved them to Wales where he had to turn in his wand due too a prior record.
For three years, they lived in the outskirts of Cardiff. Then, when Matt was five, he was playing in the woods behind his house when he saw a small, beautiful horse with a golden coat. The trusting kid that he was, he ran forward to play with it. He didn't see the mother nearby.
Lance, hearing Matt's screams of pain, grabbed his late wife's wand and bolted out the door. He found Matt on the ground, cowering in fear, a bloodied hand covering his face. Lance wasn't proficient with Susan's wand but was able to scare off the enrages mare. He apperated Matt to St. Mungo's where Matt was rushed off to Immediate Care. The healers had found that the magic in the unicorn's horn was eating away at his flesh and the only way to save him was to amputate his hand before it spread.
Lance had been questioned by the DMLE while Matt was in the Immediate Care unit. He had failed to report the wand he had brought into the country, even though he wasn't even allowed to have one. He was taken into custody and sent to Azkaban with an eleven year sentence. He hadn't even been told of his son's health. MAtt was put into the custody os his aunt and uncle, a muggle farmer couple with a daughter his age.
His family had taken him in and raised him like a son. His uncle had even sold one of their cattle to buy Matt a cuff that fit to his wrist. With it, he was able to use the farm tools such as shovels, rakes and other such things. He hadn't been allowed to tell them about magic, so he had been raised as a muggle.
Then, when he was eleven, they surprised when both he and his cousins received invitations to Hogwarts.
Matt's work on the farm and stopping fights between the farm-hands had landed him a place of honor as a Hufflepuff.
