Braith is a relatively laid-back, down to earth guy. He is generally friendly with a contagious smile, though he is not exceptionally outgoing. He can often be found doing extensive research, through reading or traveling, though he certainly wouldn’t mind the company of a beautiful woman or hanging out with his bros. He is an avid fan of American Muggle sports, having played baseball as a boy and still keeps up with his favorite teams. A self-proclaimed bachelor, Braith has had several long-term relationships, but has never found the time to really settle down.


Braith was born into a middle-class Muggle family in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. His family knew nothing of magic, only thinking that Braith was an odd child with a lot of “coincidental occurrences,” until he received a letter from Salem Magical Institute, hand delivered by a representative of the school. After much explaining, it was determined that Braith spend the next seven years studying there. The young boy became fascinated by all things magic – from theory and origins to practice and application. His affinity for research and reading found him a passion for History of Magic and subsequently a specialized interest in the history of runic magic, subjects that he excelled in.
It was only natural that he study Magical History at Wizarding University in Salem after his graduation. Once he achieved his degree, Braith stayed on at the University as a research assistant, then took a position as an adjunct professor, teaching a handful of history classes while continuing his research. He soon learned about an opportunity to not only further his education but to also advance his career in the progress. Traveling to Egypt, Braith enrolled in a post-graduate program in Rune Studies, learning under Abraham Botros. He was able to bring his knowledge back to the US, now lecturing about Magical History and Rune Studies as an associate professor.
Craving a new experience and a chance to travel again, Braith decided to try out the Hogwarts position when he heard of the History of Magic opening. He thought it might give him the opportunity to encourage the next generation of history enthusiasts and work alongside his former teacher while giving him time for his research with the presumably lightened schedule – though he remains uncertain about the age group as he relates better to adults than to children.
