These Wizarding families have been designed to give even more of a family feel to TNI. They're families that as many as possible can get involved with. Even if you don't plan on playing one, I suggest reading through the family bios and character snippets, as there's lots of valuable information in there and hopefully all characters will have some sort of contact with Family characters.
A couple of notes:
Names and details are semi-flexible; obviously, last names are staying put but if you absolutely love the character and loathe their first name, change it. Details as well are already pretty vague, but you can take the character in really any direction you like, as long as their role in the family doesn't drastically change (like a black sheep suddenly becoming a model citizen). Play-bys are negotiable. If you have any suggestions or questions, contact someone on staff!
To claim or reserve a role, just reply to this thread. You will have SEVEN days to have a completed application up or your claim/reserve will be forfeit.
The Bishop Family have been in the public eye for as long as people can remember, steadily seemingly virtuous, compassionate, and philanthropic. And it’s no secret that their diverse family is important to them.
EMELINE BISHOP and her husband BERTRAM (deceased) became household names after winning the muggle lottery because of their trademark, helping others: not only did a significant chunk of cash go to their families, but they got Emeline’s brother (also now deceased) out of sticky legal trouble and debt. However, in many ways their charitable ways are just a veneer; Emeline is a master manipulator underneath her kindly smile. Son REDMOND BISHOP is a mayor of their parish, an upright man who made one gargantuan mistake. His wife AMELIA BISHOP is a professor completely ignorant of her husband’s infidelity and lovechild. Facing fertility issues, they adopted four children, LINCOLN, ROMAN, JACKSON and SKYE BISHOP, and were blessed with one biological miracle baby, AMITY BISHOP. Amelia’s fertility issues weren’t the only reason they adopted so frequently; matriarch Emeline quietly pressured her son and daughter-in-law to add to the brood. Their appeal has always been their family life and adorable children.
Phylicia Rashad. 73. Grandmother, Socialite.
Emeline is a fixture of the community. She puts forward a very prim and proper face, the one always throwing perfect parties and is elegantly dressed even for bed. Underneath the façade, she’s cunning and manipulative.
Redmond BishopWill Smith. 47. Mayor
Redmond has always been upright and very loyal to his family. As mayor, he tries to preserve the fine line between muggle and wizardkind. However, he made one mistake, one time. He now has a love-child out there, a well-kept secret that tortures him.
Amelia BishopLucy Liu. 45. Teacher.
Amelia is very nurturing and maternal, always has been. Unfortunately, as a teenager she learned that she would always have difficulty conceiving children. Soon after her marriage to Redmond, the couple adopted their first child.
Lincoln BishopTravis Fimmel. 27. Mechanic
He was adopted at the age of six; he has some memories of his birth family, and curiously none of them are bad. Is a very protective big brother to all his siblings, especially his sisters.
Roman BishopGarrett Hedlund. 25. Auror.
Roman inherited his adoptive father’s sense of order and justice, but unfortunately is also plagued by vices. He’s falling in love with one of his informants, who is unbeknownst to him a Siren planted to seduce him.
Jackson BishopTaylor Lautner. 21. Healer
Adopted as a baby, Jackson often feels lost in his large family. He’s still trying to find his way, and the right girl, after having a long and tumultuous romance with a bad girl.
Amity BishopZendaya Coleman. 21. Retail clerk.
Amity is the only biological child, and as a surprise (right when they were adopting Jackson!) miracle, she’s always been pampered and coddled, and it shows. She’s still very childlike and naïve, but sweet and bubbly, not horrible and spoiled. Lives for fashion.

Emma Roberts. 19. Unemployed
Skye was adopted during an election year, and hasn’t disappointed since. She’s always been a loud, fun-loving girl with a definite rebellious streak as a teen. She’s boy-crazy and has put her father in a sticky situation more than once with underage drinking arrests.
