Alvin nearly fainted when the Sorting Hat sent him to Hufflepuff instead of Slytherin with barely a moment’s deliberation. His father, uncle, both grandfathers, his great-aunt, and 3 of his GREAT grandfathers had all been in Slytherin (and his family never spoke of the other). Childhood friends- the sons and daughters of his parents’ friends, were all sorted into the right house, why wasn’t he? After appealing to the Headmaster, as well as the Heads of Hufflepuff and Slytherin, he resigned to the fact that he was stuck there, and halfway through the year, realized he was happy with his new friends, and content in the house that everything in his upbringing told him was wrong.
Alvin’s former friends, Slytherins all, make life a living hell for those smaller of weaker than themselves. Alvin makes a name for himself by standing up to them to save a pair of first-years from their bullying. Although losing any chance of remaining friends, Alvin’s knowledge of the bullies and his quick thinking prevent the encounter from coming to blows.
Hoping to gain his family’s approval, Alvin tries out for the Quiddich team, and surprises himself when he becomes Chaser. Alvin’s willingness to try difficult or even dangerous maneuvers help bring the house to victory!
What had started as bullying turned deadly, and in a heartbeat, Alvin cursed his former friends and saved the life of a Gryffindor third-year in a remote storeroom.
His heroic actions the previous year made Alvin a no-brainer for Prefect in his 5th year, and his dedication to the rules, and his mentoring of younger students, earned him a lot of respect from his Professors and classmates. Conversely, on the Quiddich pitch, Alvin continued in his almost reckless pursuit of victory, injuring himself nearly as often as winning.
