Allegedly born in Ireland to a Muggle mother and a Wizard father, Fletcher’s "parents" separated before he was even old enough to attend primary school and Fletcher, for some reason, was raised by his father, D. M. F II. The boy attended Irish Muggle schools until he was 12, though he often skipped school in the afternoons and was frequently in the head's office for fighting or petty thieery. A slow bloomer as far as his magical side goes, Fletcher didn’t show many Wizarding tendencies until his sketchy Wizard wizard moved them to London and began hiding Fletcher's Hogwarts letters from him. For four years, Fletcher "worked" for his con artist father and was "home-schooled" in magic until he was forced to attend Hogwarts at age 16 (2071) as a fifth year.
During his second term at Hogwarts, or his sixth year, Fletcher learned that he had a twin from whom he had been separated at birth. As shocking as this news was, the Hufflepuff and his Slytherin twin hatched plans to find their biological parents after graduation. Despite the fact that he is technically not at all related to any of the famous Fletcher scum, Duncan still prefers to go by his shifty surname. After all, Fletcher, just Fletcher, sounds cooler for a reigning Triwizard Champion, doesn't it?
Speaking of winning the Triwizard Tournament in 2073, Fletcher began an internship the summer thereafter (before his seventh year) at Gringotts Wizarding Bank. He learned all the minutiae of the banking process and even how to use clankers to keep the dragons in line. After graduating Hogwarts, Fletcher continued his work for Gringotts, moving quickly up the ranks to a junior curse-breaker.While on a curse-breaking mission to Peru in 2075, Fletcher found out that his girlfriend, Rae, was expecting their first child. He also received the wonderful news of a promotion to full Curse-Breaker and happily accepted the raise that came with it. On the day their daughter, Mallory Skye Fletcher, came home from the hospital, Fletcher finally proposed to Rae and she accepted. Just four months later, they married on July 13, 2076 in a beautiful lakeside ceremony near their cozy home.
With a family at home, a beautiful baby daughter to take care of, and a very persuasive wife, Fletcher decided to start looking for safer employment options than curse-breaking. He saw opportunity in a run-down shop at the North end of Diagon Alley and pounced upon it, renovating the decaying building and turning it into a shiny, hip new Tattoo Parlor. It has always been Fletcher's dream to become a big-wig billionaire and now, as a small business owner, he may well be on his way to making his dreams come true. Fletcher thought that as long as he didn't give any kiddies tattoos and maintained a steady stream of customers, he would be able to keep his investors, his wife, and himself happy at work in Diagon Alley.
And for a while, Fletcher was able to balance it all. But after he made a good amount of money at the first Paradise in Diagon Alley, Fletcher handed the reigns over to his assistant shopkeeper, Nolan Park, and set out to open more piercing and tattoo parlors worldwide. His constant travel put a strain on his relationship with his wife, Rae, and eventually opened a gulf between the two that could not be closed. Fletcher and Rae divorced after just 4 years of marriage (dv. finalized in 2081). They share custody of their daughter, Mallory.
The first few years of his single life were horrible for Fletcher, as the divorce seemed to drag out forever and because Fletcher fell into a cycle of self-pity and loathing. He continued to travel and succeed at opening new tattoo parlors, but did not keep a close enough eye on his business at home, and like his marriage, the original Paradise Piercings & Tattoos started to fall by the wayside, with Nolan resigning and assistant Charlie taking over without his full knowledge.
Just recently (~2083), Fletcher began to focus more on improving his current shops and less on expanding the business worldwide. In late 2083 he signed a deal to open a Paradise Piercings & Tattoos for both Muggles AND Wizards in Shanghai, which was supposed to open the next year. Due to construction delays and international regulations, however, the shop has been pushed back to opening in 2085. Fletcher's planned first customer is Jessa Shusterman.
Fletcher doesn't want you to know more than you need to - and what you need to know is nothin'. In public, Fletcher is generally polite and friendly toward most people unless you're one who has already done something to grind his gears. He tries (sometimes too hard) to be sweet and charming for the pretty ladies but usually winds up being either annoying or funny-stupid (not on purpose) for everyone else.
Not one much for talking except for bragging, Fletcher (don’t even try calling him Duncan) tends to live by the philosophy that actions speak louder than words.
And his actions are certainly interesting.
