Sébastien Évreux
Well, if I'm needed...

Sébastien originally hadn't had any intention of playing Quidditch. True, he could ride a broom – what self-respecting wizard couldn't? But the idea of practices and matches in cold and rain really didn’t appeal to him. Besides, his childhood memories of playing Quidditch were tainted by the times he’d been forced to play with Louis Valois. The other pureblood heir would always be sure to perform more daring tricks than Bastien could, a fussy mother meaning that his flying had at times been limited. No, Sébastien could do without Louis Valois trying to one-up him again.

However, talking to Alistair Johnson had changed his mind. When the fourth year Quidditch captain had approached him in the common room, Bastien had felt quite important. None of the other first years had older students asking them for help. The idea of the Crotalus team being in need of him had suitably flattered Bastien, and once he realised that there was a chance of his new house having no Quidditch team the decision was made for him!

Sébastien read through the signup sheet briefly, wanting to be quite sure of what he was committing to. He wasn't sure he had the desired interest in Quidditch, or really a sense of team spirit, but he was definitely competitive and already felt some measure of house pride. He had thought long and hard about the position he wanted to play. Obviously seeker was ideal, as the most important position, but Alistair had mentioned that the team already had a very good seeker. Bastien didn’t want to be made to look inadequate. Keeper was too boring a role, and there were three chasers (he preferred a little more individuality). Beater it was, then.

With a sigh, he put his quill to the paper, making sure to keep his handwriting legible but important-looking (Bastien especially liked a flourish on the ‘E’ of his surname).

      There was officially, with the Head Boy elections over, no reason to remain on the Crotalus Quidditch team, and Isaac had debated for a long time about whether or not he was going to do so. On one... more
