Vladimir Brockert
The colors of the wind

Vlad was not the kind of student who was frequently found hanging around in the library. He was not the most studious of his year by any means, although he did certainly work hard to maintain decent grades, mostly in a quest to please his parents, both of whom were former Sonora employees. He succeeded in keeping around what Muggles would call Bs or Cs, although that was primarily due to the help of his sister, who was also smart.

They were a great stress reliever - not that Vlad was ever particularly stressed or even discouraged - so that was fun.
