Personality & Traits

General Overview Roddrick is mean, pure and simple. He enjoys nothing more than torturing the family's house elves (3). His favorite past time is giving them a direct order that they cannot follow and then watching them punish themselves for failing.

He is an avid reader. When he got his letter, he began spending hours a day in his father's library reading everything he could about magical history and Hogwarts.

When he purchased his wand, Allivander told him that he had rarely seen a wand so enthusiastic about its new owner. Rather than merely a shower of sparks, Roddrick was able to cast a perfect transfiguration spell and turned a tea cup into a field mouse.

Roddrick is a quick study. If he reads something, he understands it. If he understands it, he remembers it. His memory however is countered by a very short attention span. He has a severe case of what the muggles call ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and might possibly also have OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) but that is yet to be determined. The muggle world fascinates him. There have been several cases where he sneaked out of the house and went wandering around in the muggle shopping center just to see what could be seen.
