You asked and we answered! After many comments requested more Harry Potter character sheets, we went back to the drawing board and thought about how we would play DnD 5e as some of our other favorite characters. So grab your Firebolts, hold tight to your hats, and someone please find Trevor the toad! Here are our Harry Potter DnD character sheets, part 2!
Good old Van Gogh… I mean George Weasley. George was the less cruel of the Weasley twins. While Fred enjoyed pranking people for the sake of pranking, George preferred to only prank those that enjoyed it. George was also known to focus more on the practical skills necessary to perform their pranks (George learned how to pick a muggle lock while Fred made jokes and acted as look-out). For this reason, we’ve made George a Guild Artisan. Though they have differences in their personalities, both Weasley twins would act as Arcane Trickster Rogues. George’s wand specifications are not officially known, so we’ve given him an Alder and Dragon Heartstring wand. Alder wands prefer a witch or wizard that is adaptive and friendly. These wands are especially suitable to nonverbal magic and, when coupled with dragon heartstring, is perfect for creative types.
Before we get into Fred’s sheet, we want to make it clear that the Weasley twins are not the same, so there will be differences in their character sheets. While George focused a bit more on learning the skills needed for their business, Fred was the showman, and is therefore given the Entertainer background. Like his brother, he is an Arcane Trickster Rogue. Also like his brother, his wand specifications are not known, so we’ve given him a Mahogany and Dragon Heartstring wand. Mahogany is known for its power and affinity for transfiguration, one of the only courses either twin bothered to get an O.W.L. in. When coupled with Dragon Heartstring, this wand is a power house and adept at creative actions, though more showy than the wand we’ve given to George.
Voldemort, voldemort, oh voldy volde…*coughs*
The Dark Lord, in my opinion, should only be played as an NPC, unless the group is doing an evil campaign and the DM feels like being super nice to the Tom Riddle fan. Voldy, given his penchant to break his soul and do whatever he needs for his aims, would be a Warlock with a pact with a Great Old One. A player of the Dark Lord should choose Pact of the Chain to represent his bond with Nagini, his familiar. Here we’ve chosen to make Voldemort an Elf-Drow due to the corruption of his soul which altered his appearance, much like how the drow gained an altered appearance when they retreated from the world of the sun. In canon, Tom has a Yew and Phoenix Feather wand, indicating his power over life and death.
Some people may look at Luna, listen to her warnings about Wrackspurts, and question why we’ve made her an intelligent wizard with a sage background. Never forget, Luna Lovegood is a Ravenclaw. Despite being prone to believing many odd things, Luna is highly intelligent and wise. She is not always understood, but she fights for her friends and the greater good. Any player RPing as Luna should make sure to pick up See Invisibility to represent her ability to see hidden creatures. Luna’s wand specifications are not known in canon, but we have chosen to give her Vine with Thestral Hair. Those with vine wands are known for constantly surprising those that know them best and seeing beyond the ordinary. Thestral hair is very difficult to work with (many wandmakers aren’t able to see it) but we feel that one as unusual as Luna would have an equally unusual wand.
If anyone who RPs as Severus ever gets asked anything resembling “After all this time?” and doesn’t respond with “Always” needs to have a talking to. There is no other acceptable response to that question. Here we’ve made Severus a Half Elf to reference his halfblood heritage. For other wizards, being a half-blood would not be a big deal, but, as J.K. revealed, being a halfblood Prince was a central conflict in Severus’ character so we’ve chosen to include that conflict here. Severus is a neutral character who follows his emotions, making him chaotic (though very reserved on the surface). He follows his negative feelings of inferiority to the service of the Dark Lord and, after his actions cause the death of the woman he loves, he serves Dumbledore to repent. For this reason, we’ve made Severus a Warlock with an Archfey pact. Severus’ wand specifications aren’t known in canon, so we’ve given him a Red Oak with Phoenix Feather. The owner of a Red Oak wand is adaptable, an accomplished duelist, and a creator of distinctive spells. When paired with Phoenix Feather, this wand is capable of an amazing range of magic, much like Severus.
And there you have it! Our second set of HP DnD sheets comes to a close. Have we made a sheet for your favorite character? Should we make one for Dobby next? Let us know in the comments!
