Early Life

[ coming soon... ]

Schooling at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Basil was always one of the loud sarcastic kids who displayed an immature sort of personality as a means to make up for his short stature - being only 4'11" (149 cm) at age 15 - and earned himself the title of 'ClownPuff' after his first year. Not an especially gifted student, the only subjects that Basil really stood out in were Ancient Runes and Transfiguration.

Life Post Hogwarts

After graduating from Hogwarts, Basil's tendency to be impatient and an inability to sit still for long caused him to forgo university and instead traveled the world as a freelance writer. After globetrotting for several years, he eventually decided that he should return to school and attended Wizarding University in Edinburgh, Scotland where he graduated with degrees in Rune Studies, Journalism/Literature Studies, and Wizarding Communications while also getting his feet wet in Business Administration & Management.

Basil's Napoleonic denial of his shortness unfortunately never went away as even as an adult he barely reached 5'5" (165 cm). Just as in his Hogwarts days, this made his personality even more larger than life and he vowed to make a name for himself and went on to graduate from Cuffe University School of Journalism on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the United States.

Expecting GREAT things of himself when he returned to England, Basil was sorely disappointed when the only job he could find was as a journalist for Witch Weekly. He still threw himself into his work and slowly made his way to the top within the publication, but he dreamed of working for somewhere 'more worthy of his time' which is precisely why he jumped at the opportunity to work at the Daily Prophet as Editor-in-Chief.
