Shaffer Douglas grew up in England and started playing quidditch for Slytherin while at Hogwarts. Long graduated, he has played professional quidditch one and off, for almost a decade. His current assignment is with the Arrows where he plays Keeper. This last summer he was named Captain. Vibrant personality and nice smile mean he's routinely in the papers and has been linked with a string of women over the years (not all true).
Nearly always dressed to kill in fitted suits, the "prodigal son" of Appleby has always been known as play boy. Frequenting bars and favoring drinks and beautiful woman most days. He’s been known to get in plenty of bar fights of which was rumored to have caused his removal from the Appleby squad. He's said to be back now though; Just without his prized captain 'C' on his jersey. He seems a bit tamer now; probably due to his budding relationship with once-teammate Aria Byrne. It's actually rumored that the two had their first child together but no one has caught sight of the little Quidditch Princess. Will Mitch remain the reformed family man or will he revert back to his man whore ways? Only time will tell.
Born and raised in England River attended Hogwarts till the age of 14 where she was diagnosed with Cancer. Her parents moved her to Africa for a cure they had heard about. Within 2 years she was in remission and attending Uagadou. Even with the cancer gone River chose to stay in Africa, graduated and joined the Tanzanian Quidditch Team. She was signed to a 3 year contract with them and instead of renewing her contract she was sent to the Appleby Arrow's on a free transfer. She made the move due to the fact that she missed her family terribly and they had moved to Scotland of which gave River the perfect opportunity to come back to her family and reconnected with everyone.
Michael Shaw was, at the height of his career, considered one of the best Beaters to be playing Quidditch, if not the best. He was the top prospect out of Hogwarts when he graduated having played for the Gryffindor team five years running. But after his early retirement due to the death of his fiancée, the public is sceptical than he can return to his former status as one of the premier Beaters. He is seen as a charming and confident guy by the masses, but some worry that he doesn’t take the game seriously enough as he is often seen out on the town partying. What they don’t see is that he spends every other moment working hard to be the best beater he can be.
With more than a decade of experience, Gemma's an old stand-by on the Catapults and is known for being a fierce competitor with a wicked swing. Originally from England, Gemma moved to Wales after she graduated, when she made the reserves, and has climbed the Catapults ladder all the way to earning her position as captain a few seasons ago. She takes the sport very seriously and pushes her team to succeed, though most who interview her can agree that off the pitch, she's a charmer with an easy sense of humor. The gossip magazines like to frame her as being prone to the occasional bar fight and also in a secret relationship with Appleby Arrows Captain, Shaffer Douglas--both rumors that are based in varying degrees of truth.
Callum Jasper Aiken has been a bit of a mystery since he got his first big break as a reserve seeker for the Tutshill Tornadoes shortly after graduating from Slytherin house. At twenty-one he was moved up to the primaries, and two years later, the Tornadoes became the third team in the league, thrusting Callum, begrudingly, into the spotlight. However, after the attacks and a run of bad luck, Callum left the Tornadoes the following year to join the Caerphilly Catapults - who were consequently named the league champions. Even still, Aiken avoids attention where he can, wishing to focus on the game rather than the fame. About a year ago, Callum gained custody of his younger sister. He is currently dating Holyhead Harpies captain, Ella Davenport.
Novem is one of the newer players to take to the field as a full-time player for the Caerphilly Catapults, and appears to be thoroughly enjoying himself there. He likes to think he gets on well with everyone on the team, even if he is a little bit dozy thanks to a few too many bludgers to the head. He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer (in fact, he's probably not a knife at all, but a spoon) but he's good at what he does. He's fond of showmanship, and likes to work in a few reckless stunts and tricks while he has nothing to do, feinting and weaving his way as close to the snitch as he can get. He enjoys the limelight a little bit more than he probably should, particularly the attention of the ladies, but hasn't openly attached himself to anyone for the time being. In terms of his love life, he prefers to keep that to himself, since he rather likes the idea of fangirls daydreaming about his single status. . .

Chandler was born and raised in Plymouth, he came from a foster family, unaware - and still is - that his mother died.

Chandler is following his dream of becoming a Quidditch player.
Growing up in an Italian Pureblood family, her father, and brother didn’t want her to play because she was a lady. Ella had managed to be a lady and get down and dirty with the Quidditch sport. When she started Hogwarts she waited patiently until her second year, then she tried out and was put onto the reserves as Seeker for Slytherin team. In her third year Kilian Wilde (her captain) pulled her up onto the Main roster. From that moment on she never looked back, not even once. In her fifth year she was named Captain of the team and retained that title until she graduated. Upon graduation she joined the reserves of Holyhead Harpies. In her second year, the current seeker retired early, and left an opening for Ella. She slipped into the spot effortlessly, and was on the main roster from then on. When she was 21 she was named Captain of the Holyhead Harpies, one of the youngest captains currently in the game. She is now 23 and shows no signs of slowing down. She is also currently dating fellow Quidditch player Callum Aiken of the Caerphilly Catapults.
Maya Ward first appeared on the UK quidditch scene over two years ago and has become a household name. The witch has made the Harpies starting team last season and has been on the roll since, in more ways than one. Openly unapologetic, Maya has become a staple name on the partying circuit and has enjoyed a lot of media attention for things that have nothing to do with the quidditch pitch. Linked with more people than probably anyone else in the public eye, Maya is however still dedicated to the game and puts in the work during practices and games, and has choice words for anyone suggesting otherwise.
Grey was raised in Quebec, Canada as the daughter of American pureblood Sylvie Rainwater and French pureblood Bastien Sargent. At Ilvermorny, Grey was a Horned Serpent and played Quodpot. It wouldn't be until years later when her mother died and her father forced Grey to move to France, that she would start playing Quidditch. She took eagerly to the sport as a distraction from her troubles and found she had talent for it. Immediately out of school, she was picked up as a reserve for the Harpies. She spent three years there before finally getting a turn on the main roster at 21. Two years later, she's hoping to keep the momentum going. She's known for her bold fashion statements and sideways smile. She also clearly has a strong relationship with her fellow Chasers, Maya and Nyx, and is often seen in the company of one or both of them. She may also come off as secretive or shy.
Nyx Castellanos was a talented chaser for Slytherin and recruited by the Holyhead Harpies when she graduated in 2051. After spending time on reserves she joined the main roster on her 20th birthday. Her fast speed and bohemian personality made her a quick favorite with the fans. However, in the storm of 2053 she suffered two broken legs and spent the summer and fall in recovery. Mid-season she returned to professional play, and she'd like to think the recent string of Holyhead wins is due to her triumphant return.
A Durmstrang graduate and son of a custom broom-maker originating from Baden-Baden, Germany, Wolfram found a love for flying early on in life. His introduction to Quidditch began in his fourth year when a classmate urged him to try out for a team and from then on, Wolfram never looked back.
While his primary position has always been that of Seeker, Wolfram has a diverse skill set and was originally recruited by the Kenmare Kestrels straight out of Durmstrang as a reserve Chaser with occasional cross-training with the Seekers. By the time he was twenty, a series of trades and injuries required him to step up and Wolfram seamlessly slid into the full time position of starting Seeker for the Kenmare Kestrels and has held the position ever since, becoming known by fans as ‘Hermes’ due to a certain interview and his deft movements on the pitch.
A respected player of the game, Wolfram’s demeanour can come off as withdrawn and apathetic. Whether he’s emerged victorious or been defeated in a game, Wolfram has a reputation of being nigh unshakable when it comes to his calm and near emotionless facade.
Born and raised in Ireland, Freya would make her parents proud by becoming one of the world's most sought after Seekers-- she rose to it through playing Quidditch for Hufflepuff as their seeker before being scouted and eventually drawing up a deal with the Montrose Magpies. While some might choose this sort of profession for either the fame, money, or both that's not why Freya is where she is. The young woman is playing because she loves the game, nothing more. Though, the fame, money, and adoring fans are most certainly a bonus! Sweet and always eager to meet and please fans, she's not one to shy from the limelight-- and with how beautiful she is, who could blame her? Tabloids and gossiping fans, however, still have their fun speculating about her as there are rumors floating around that she's involved with not one, but two men-- sources say she's been seen with Logan Carmichael, a healer at St. Mungo's.Then there's also sightings and talk of her snagging a rather wealthy silver fox. Others speculate that she's having it on with the St. Mungo's medical examiner. However, both the seeker and her management has declined to divulge any details. That was, until the world was shocked when it was discovered that she was in a serious relationship with St. Mungo's ME- Asheriel Kane.
Mairi was born in Elgin, Scotland and started Hogwarts when she turned 11 years old. She is an only child and has no children so far, as well as no spouse. She was sorted into Ravenclaw and joined the Quidditch team in her fourth year as a keeper and played that position until her seventh year, when she took the seeker spot. She was also Quidditch captain from her sixth to her seventh year in Hogwarts. She is seen at St. Mungo's a lot because she tends to be a little reckless on her broom and ends up falling and breaking something. She tends to avoid most wizarding places and often finds herself in Muggle settings instead, preferring the anonymity.
