Ethan McCarthy is a graduate who was sorted into Ravenclaw at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy after four years at Beauxbatons. He later served as their Prefect in his seventh year.


Ethan is a generally friendly and laid-back person, though he's not exceptionally outgoing and often prefers the company of a few rather than a large crowd. There are very few people he genuinely does not like, but those he doesn't give him good reason not to. Not usually quick to anger, he is one who can typically shrug off things that might be considered bothersome, but he also tends to steer clear of drama, something he has little tolerance for. Other things that annoy him and might get a reaction from him include being patronized, feeling like someone is trying to threaten him, and being lied to. He is also exasperated easily with stupidity and a lack of humor.

Ethan was a bit surprised to be sorted into Ravenclaw as he doesn't care much for books and spellwork doesn't come as easily to him as he would like. He loses interest quickly in things that don't make sense to him. But things he does have interest in, he does exceptionally well. He is an avid nature lover, enjoying animals and especially plant life, carrying over to his interest in experimental herbology. Some of his necessities include espressos and chocolate frogs, and more recently peanut butter cups. He is fluent in English, German, and French, making his accent a bit difficult to distinguish.


Ethan was born a month premature in Heidelberg, Germany, the first and only child to Finn and Meloria McCarthy, an upper-middle class pureblood family. His father, Finn, is a Beauxbatons graduate from the Isle of Wight and his mother, Meloria is a Hogwarts graduate from Essex, England. After they were married, the couple moved to Heidelberg once Finn obtained a job with the German Ministry of Magic.

Ethan's early childhood was filled with extended family visiting, exploring the nature of his country, and pre-formal lessons. At the insistence of his parents, he began classical piano lessons at age four, etiquette classes at age six, and formal dancing lessons at age eight. He was also homeschooled by his governess from age 6 to 10. The only one of these he truly enjoyed was the piano with which he is still quite skilled, though the etiquette lessons still stick with him in the back of his mind, making him fairly well-mannered.

Once he turned 11, it was time to begin his formal magical education. As was tradition on the McCarthy side of the family, it was determined that he attend Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, where he spent four years.
