Sindri aka Sindri Silverleaf is a wizard. He is a member of the unsorted masses of Hogwarts students just off the train eagerly crowding around the Sorting Hat.

About Me
In the year 1692 they passed a law that would change everything. The International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy decrees that wizards and their magical brethren must disappear so that both we and the nonmagic folk, or rather muggles as they call them, can live peaceful lives apart from one another. But that little law of theirs, it symbolized much more the day they signed it than vanishing into the stuff of stories. On that day, when they signed for themselves, they meant to sign for us too, for all of us, because they meant themselves to be the supreme.

We*d begun to remove ourselves from human society long before they even considered such a law. Occasionally we might reveal ourselves to a lone wanderer who stumbled upon our glade, allow him to join our revels for a night, but we realized early on the greed and single-mindedness of humans. That day they passed the law, we broke from them for good, ended all truce.

So these days we flit between the forgotten places, sharing our celebrations with no one. To us no difference is to be seen between the magic and the nonmagic humans. We take what we want when we want it from them. The world is our whim. Our peasantry may associate with the wizarding-kind, infest their curtains or act as their servants, but only to keep away from the eyes of our court, not out of any particular kindness or malicious spirit.

Look sharp. First we*ll steal your breath, and then we*ll steal your heart. You*ll blink, and we*ll be gone.

Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim gray sands with light,
Far off by furthest Rosses
We foot it all the night,
Weaving olden dances
Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight.

William Butler Yeats
**The Stolen Child**
Lines 13-19

A note to those who knew the previous Sindri:
Rather than wait for this account to delete to make a new character, I am using the same account to re-invent him because I like the name. Consider the old Sindri dead.
