James Edward Winston was born to Amelia and Christopher Winston on the 29th of September 1972. His childhood was spent in the countryside of Devon, where his family’s large estate resided in the middle of Dartmoor National Park. They were a wealthy pureblood family, meaning James was provided with everything he could ever want. He didn’t see his parents much, as they were always out at important events. His nanny, Eleanor, looked after him mostly. James has always kept in contact with her and believes she is the only reason he grew up to be a well-rounded human being and not an entitled shit like many other pureblood children of the time.

He attended Hogwarts when he turned 11, being sorted into Gryffindor. This would have surprised his parents, if they’d taken any notice, which they hadn’t. School allowed James to flourish, and forget his disinterested parents. He made many friends from all houses, the school providing more for him socially than academically. In the first few years he struggled with many lessons, mainly potions and transfiguration. But James was determined to do well and make his parents take notice, so he spent most of his last years at Hogwarts studying. This meant he unintentionally deserted his friends, and when he finally graduated he didn’t have many left.

During his studious years, James discovered his love of healing, and started training to be a healer straight out of Hogwarts. It was during his second year of training that a friend introduced him to Horatio Sherlock. Despite a rocky start, they became fast friends. It was safe to say James’ life had been pretty boring until Horatio arrived on the scene. He completed two more years of training and finally became a Healer at St Mungo’s, which proved helpful for when Horatio got himself into trouble.

The pair of them only grew closer when the second wizarding war came around. They spent their time helping muggleborns escape from death eaters, as well as providing and proving information for the rebel group INTEL. All was going to plan until they were discovered and made to duel for their lives. James had been convinced they were done, but they somehow managed to escape. However, he didn’t escape unharmed. A large chunk was bitten from his arm, and that was how James became a werewolf.

He now works in the Ministry’s drop in clinic, but it took a whole lot of effort to get the job, what with his new problem every full moon. James just about manages with the help of Horatio, who brews the much needed Wolfsbane potion for him.

Magical Status Form

Magical Status: WEREWOLF

Werewolf Form: Standard
Werewolf Size: 5’ & 213lbs

Form & Size Elaboration: James was bitten during battle. He majorly struggled with the pain of transformation to begin with, but now has wolfsbane made for him every month. James has fully accepted his predicament and only fights that side of himself when not in a safe environment. His personality has become more assertive since the change, and he has a temper now that was never present before. His human form has always been slightly small, and this is reflected in his werewolf form.
ESFJ – James bases his moral compass on established traditions and laws, upholding authority and rules. He feels a serious responsibility to help and to do the right thing. He loves to be of service, enjoying any role that allows him to participate in a meaningful way, so long as he knows he is valued and appreciated. James respects hierarchy, and does his best to position himself with some authority, at home and at work, which allows him to keep things clear, stable and organized for everyone. He truly enjoys hearing about his friends’ relationships and activities, remembering little details and always standing ready to talk things out with warmth and sensitivity. If things aren’t going right, or there’s tension in the room, James picks up on it and will try to restore harmony and stability to the group. James values stability and security very highly, so is eager to preserve the status quo, which makes him extremely loyal and trustworthy.




James' workspace is always kept neat and tidy. A tidy space means a tidy mind, as he always says. He keeps paperwork in colour coded files, and vials have precise labels on them.
