Full name: Lovino Vargas
Hometown: Rome, Italy
Experience: Almost none. He’s tutored a few people here and there, but he’s never taught anywhere structured until now.
He’s short, at only 5 feet 5 inches, with a slim but unmistakeably male figure. He has dark auburn colored hair and green eyes, with a curl sticking out from his hair that he can never get to stay down. He’s tanned like almost all Italian, with dirt stuck under his nails from the work he’s done with plants and things of the ilk.
Fauni are fairies who have to guard forests and fields. It’s their job to make sure nothing happens to the place they are born, and if something does happen they have to be quick about finding a new place to guard before they die. To have one’s home destroyed is a source of shame among the Fauni, and often they will lie about their heritage to hide this shame.
Fauni can be small and unseen like other fairies, however sometimes they need to be human sized to convince actual humans that destroying a certain place is a terrible terrible idea. Lovino was put into that situation once; however, as he failed to protect his home, he was stuck in his human size even with his new home of the forest outside the Zodiac school.
Spiky would be the best word to fit Lovino. Spiky, temperamental, an ass to everyone around him. He’s full of sharp words and silver tipped insults for anyone who crosses his path, regardless of their intent. He’s dependent though, on the people who stay with him despite that, and will do whatever it takes to keep them safe and with him, no matter what.
He will take the time to help someone if and only if it has something to do with plants, history, or both. Generally though, he would rather let someone flounder than try to help them. He feels that helping them will stop them from actually learning and so even when it has to do with his two favorite things, he would rather make them look it up themselves.
Even though it may not seem like it, Lovino loves learning. He enjoys trying to find the right answer, and he especially loves proving someone wrong. Being better than everyone else is one of his favorite things, and teaching is the perfect opportunity for him to be just that. It helps that he actually likes seeing the look of understanding on his students though, otherwise he would never actually teach.
Lovino, like most fauni, was born in the middle of a field. However, for some reason he was born as a human sized baby rather than a normal sized infant, and a nearby woman found him. Deciding that she couldn’t leave a naked baby all alone to starve and/or freeze to death, the woman adopted him and gave him his name. If she hadn’t, he would be just like all of his fellow fauni; nameless and content to have no family other than his plants. Thankfully for both the woman and Lovino, she lived right across from his field and so he was able to be the woman’s son and take care of his field as was proper.
At the age of ten in human years, the woman who took care of Lovino, and who taught him what it was like to be human - even if this did set him apart from the others - and to respect the history that created him, died of lung cancer. Devastated and hurt that she abandoned him after promising to always be there, he ran to his field. He lived there in his smaller more natural form until he was 18, when a construction company “bought” the land that included both his field and the home he grew up in.
Doing what he was meant to as a fauni, he changed into his human form and tried to convince the company that the field wasn’t to be destroyed. Unfortunately for him, he was ignored and treated as a punk kid. Finally he just destroyed their equipment. However, he got caught and sent to jail. Having no records that would pass as real and lawful, Lovino was seen as an illegal alien and kicked out of Italy and as far away from his field as possible. Managing to sneak in one last time to see his field, he was left to stare in shock at the concrete base that stood where his beloved field had once been.
Taking all that he could from the house he had grown up in, Lovino left and wandered, teaching history to people here and there until finally he came across Zodiac and the forest that had no fuani to guard it. Lovino quickly planted himself there, taking control of the forest. Soon after he was approached by the headmaster of Zodiac and asked to become a teacher there. After long thought, Lovino decided to go along with it and became the history teacher.
Role Play Sample: ((I can’t be bothered to make up a new RP sample for this. Sorry. Instead, I will give you all nine paragraphs of my only other sample for Lovino.))
“God damn it you stupid bird, stop making so much noise!” Lovino whisper-shouted, trying to keep his voice down while at the same time getting the bird to stop hooting and being stupid. If it didn’t stop it would wake up his “parents” and that would not be good at all. Glaring at the owl and puffing his cheeks out, Lovino tried to think of a way to get it down from its circling route around his ceiling. He stomped his foot and grabbed a blanket, tossing it over the owl like a net and pulling it to the ground.
Nodding in satisfaction, he picked up the letter the owl had dropped on his bed and read it over, scowling more and more as he read. Damn it. He didn’t want his “parents” to know that he had magic – because he knew they were reporting to his idiot of a grandfather and he wouldn’t give that man the satisfaction of having a magical grandson – but he also didn’t want to give up the chance to go to a school where he would learn to actually use his magic. So…he would have to lie. Again. Lovino wasn’t against lying to get what he wanted, but at the same time he didn’t feel right lying to the people who were taking care of him.
He took a few minutes to think it over before deciding that another lie wouldn’t hurt things. He quickly scribbled out a reply to the school and gave it to the owl – earning a peck on the head for the net trick – before settling onto his bed to think up a way to lie to them. It would have to be extensive and foolproof if he wanted it to actually work.
There was an owl sitting in his garden. In the middle of the day. Holding a letter. Lovino scowled and held his arm out to the owl, wincing as its weight settled onto his arm. It wasn’t one of the owls his normal school used, and it was also too soon after the school year had ended for him to be getting the supply list for next year, so the owl’s presence was a complete mystery to him. Offering it a treat – because one never knew when it was a good idea to have a treat – he took the letter from it and read it over.
“Fuck.” He muttered, looking it over and thumbing through the pages. Why on earth would this school, this Hogwarts, pick him to be a student there? There were so many other people who would make a much better choice…but they sent the letter to him. His name was on it. That meant that Hogwarts thought he was better than all of the other students in his school. A faint, self-satisfied smirk crossed his face at the thought.
Of course he would have to go here. But that meant another lie to his parents. Glancing up at the house, he thought it over for a moment before deciding that all they knew about him was a lie, so why start telling the truth now? Lovino nodded and gave the owl another treat, sneaking it into the house and writing back to Hogwarts before writing to his own school to start the transfer process. He would make up the muggle papers tomorrow.
Fuck fuck fuck fuck. Lovino was scowling harshly as the hat – crawling with who knows what – settled on his head, his eyes avoiding looking over at the Hufflepuff table where his brother – the brother he hadn’t seen in years and the one that he hadn’t known would be here – was happily sitting with a big ass stupid grin on his face. Of course Feliciano was magic, why would Lovino be better than the idiot in anything?
He tensed as he felt something moving through his head, slowly relaxing as he realized that it was the hat’s magic. He decided right then and there that he would not ever be in the same house as his brother, and started thinking about all of the things that made him unworthy of being in Hufflepuff. Sure, he doubted this was how it worked, but he would not be in a house where everything he did was compared to his brother’s work and found lacking. And he knew it would happen; all around the house he lived in there were paintings and portraits done by a ‘F.V.’ and all of them in places where Lovino’s work had been.
He was so focused on being away from Feliciano that he almost missed the hat shouting out “SLYTHERIN!” He didn’t miss the way the silver and green table started cheering though, and he took the hat off and set it down on the chair roughly before stalking over to the right table, his scowl lessened only a little by the thought of being separated from his little brother. But now he would have to deal with him…Lovino wasn’t sure if he was ready for that yet.
