NOTABLE OBJECTS. Reid owns a pair of reading glasses that he sometimes has hanging on the edge of his dress shirt. They're black and are thick framed to avoid breakage. His Hufflepuff tie is a great indicator he is from that house. An old brown leather watch given from his dad sits on his wrist, the face is broken.

WAND. 25.4cm Chestnut wood and Phoenix feather

Reducio
CHESTNUT WOOD
"This is a most curious, multi-faceted wood, which varies greatly in its character depending on the wand core, and takes a great deal of colour from the personality that possesses it. The wand of chestnut is attracted to witches and wizards who are skilled tamers of magical beasts, those who possess great gifts in Herbology, and those who are natural fliers. However, when paired with dragon heartstring, it may find its best match among those who are overfond of luxury and material things, and less scrupulous than they should be about how they are obtained. Conversely, three successive heads of the Wizengamot have possessed chestnut and unicorn wands, for this combination shows a predilection for those concerned with all manner of justice."

PHOENIX FEATHER
"This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike.

Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won."
▨ MANNERISMS. It's easy to mistake him as someone who looks constantly worried, yet in reality he often looks far off because he is in thought. His hands are often moving when he speaks and he likes to gesture when he does, especially when he's passionate about a subject. A common nervous tick of his is to run his hand across his knuckles or run his hand through his hair. Reid doesn't stay still much, he finds it hard to stand still for so long. Due to his age, his voice can sometimes crack and he has a heavy accent that is specific to the town of Derby.

 CURRENT PERSONALITY. Loyalty is woven right to the very core of this young boy, driven by morals taught by the mother and father he respects. Triumph is short and sweet, but he's quick to move on rather than sit on his laurels. Magic to him is a crutch he hasn't honed, practicality and doing everything the 'muggle-way' is all he knows right now. Empathy ties him together with his friends and family, without it, he'd fall to the wayside.

Yet behind the mellow exterior lurks a boy who is plagued by insecurity, he often feels misplaced. He's lightning before the thunder when his emotions run high and it doesn't usually end well. Emotion drives him and sometimes logic falls short, it's caused him a few a few too many bruises. He envies the ones who have an affinity for magic, something he currently doesn't have and is unsure if he'll ever have.
          + Loyal, Humble, Practical, Emphatic

She supports him becoming a wizard. Like his father, he loves her dearly.
02. - - JOSEF KOVACS, father
          Him and his father don't always see eye to eye and Reid will usually be very vocal of that. But he respects his dad and tries to listen to him every now and then, but his stubborness gets him in trouble with his dad. His dad always tried to spend time with Reid, which he didn't mind. But recently, him and his dad have come at an impasse where his dad has made it known that he isn't sure of him leaving for Hogwarts so much. But like his mother, he loves his father.

PRE-HOGWARTS
Reducio
In 2007, Reid Jacob Kovacs was born on July 22nd in the city of Derby, he is the only child of Edith and Josef Kovacs. He grew up with a natural knack for trouble and was often a loud child, much to his parent's horror sometimes. Reid grew up a loud and rambunctious child, often curious and rarely calm at any rest. He carried this trait with him even as he grew up and found himself a group of friends just as rowdy as he was. His closest friend was Theodore 'Theo' Atwood, an abnormally tall and strong student with a budding 'rebel without a cause' attitude.

The two grew up rather well and the two arrogantly considered themselves kings of the yard at their all boys school. At the age of ten, Reid had gotten into quite a fight with the teenage upperclassmen at the school. He had been bullied in secret and hid it from Theo, who he knew was bullhead enough to try something. Though in one instance. he had ended up launching his bully across the way from where he was coming at him.

The only issue was that Reid never touched the boy and instead had a strong sense of anger at the time. This only made him and Theo's reputation even better at the school, though his parents became concerned at the news. Upon turning 11, he was told of what happened and who he really was in a sense. It took a while to wrap his head around it, but he also was told of Hogwarts not long after. He was encouraged to go, his mother's concern was that he would end up suppressing his abilities and suffer the consequences in the long run. He began attending Hogwarts in the year 2018.
YEAR ONE; A NEW WIZARD
Reducio
Reid didn't grow to like his new setting in the beginning, he was frankly someone who didn't exactly like being at Hogwarts just yet. His first month or so was sprinkled with the feeling of homesickness and very much a feeling of being out of place. He found friends in his own house though and a few in Ravenclaw. His first rejection also happened in his first year and made him quite stressed. He didn't realize he didn't have much of a knack in magic till he was involved in the devastating camp disaster. In the event, Reid had to rely more on his physical strength than anything. 

The camp left him with some shaky feelings about being at the school, which only heightened when the Masked Man came to be. Reid began to question the school's protocol for safety and wondered if he should just go home. But instead, he chose to stay and didn't mention it to his parents about the happenings of school. He met more friends along the way, but lost some too. In the end, Reid was stuck with a rather eventful first year and one that made him a little more different than before.
SUMMER OF YEAR ONE; CALLING IT HOME
Reducio
Reid attended summer camp, where he did activities at the school. He chose to skip out with going home, kind of relishing the fun in the danger of the school. This caused some tension in his family at home, but he went home eventually. He left for school on September 2018.
[/quote]YEAR TWO; OLD FRIENDS, NEW FRIENDS
Reducio
Upon coming back to school, he touched based with old friends. However he drifted in and out of the scene without much realization. He stayed good friends with most people and even met some new ones along the way. But trouble brewed back home as Reid was informed through his letters. His parents were always honest with him, however they told him not to fret. His father was still not so happy with him being gone for so long, he was also aware of what dangers had happened in the school. But his mother insisted that he was in good hands. He became good friends with Alexx Severin, who restored his faith in the emerald gilded house. It kept his worries and anxieties about home at bay, he felt normal for once in his life and things were well.
[/quote]YEAR TWO SUMMER; A GOODBYE
Reducio
Reid went home this summer, skipping the camp in favor of seeing his family early. But he was met with different news, things were not okay as they seemed. His mother had suffered an accident, constant memory loss has left her in the care at St. Mungo's Hospital. His father chooses to go back to Hungary to 'take care of his ill family', but Reid isn't so sure of that. The Fosgates, his mother's family, introduce themselves to him and take custody of him since he is still a minor. His father's memories of magic are wiped and

PARENTS. Edith Kovacs (Mother, née Fosgate), József Kovacs (Father)
KOVACS; a family from Derby that tried to ignore the Wizarding World for a long time.
Reducio
Josef was born in Southampton in 1980 after his mother and father moved there. His father left at an early age. Reid's father Josef would later join the British Army at the age of 16. He served for five years and during his third year(1998), he met Edith on his time back from deployment. Though they initially had a brief introduction, the both of them began seeing one another regularly and often in odd places.

Josef didn't question why Edith chose the oddest places around Birmingham, he wanted to stay in contact with her even afterward. For another five years, the two kept in contact via letters and visits when Josef was home from wherever his work took him. Courting her for nearly six years he proposed to her in 2003, though her answer surprised him.

The trust between the two of them were strong and Edith wanted to eventually reveal tell Josef to his face of the one secret she held from him. It was a long day of her explaining who she was and what she could do, but at the end of it all, Josef didn't take the ring back. Regardless of what he had seen, he still chose to marry her and Edith happily accepted.

Two years down the line, Josef suffered a traumatic injury and ended his ten year service to the British Army after an honourable discharge. He came home in the same year(2008) to be with Edith and eventually settle down. Though after complications with her own family, the two of them decided to ignore the Fosgate's wants and quietly slip away. The two of them settled in Derby in 2006 and in 2007, Reid had been born.
FOSGATE; a pureblood family from Scotland that's settled in Birmingham.
Reducio
The Fosgates are a pureblood family originally from Scotland, though their name from the beginning had been Foxcott. The family specialized in brewing magical liquor in a wizarding inn called Grim & Ardor, it worked double as a distillery where the family found its fortune. It was a respectable business at the time, built through physical means and magic. They were skilled in their craft and took the family business beyond what it was. Though as time went on, opposition arose and they found themselves in competition with one other particular family.

A struggle arose and suddenly the family found its morals being tainted, fair play was no longer keeping them afloat. Eventually, liquid gold mixed with a raging crimson and the Foxcotts fled the highlands in defeat. The decision to uproot the family and its fortunes was hard fought and split the family apart, it was one that ended in the death of two family members. Eventually, the family settled in Birmingham under the name Fosgate and began to actually put their know-how in making magical liquor there. It's established the family in some regards, but despite being refined, they kept their questionable history as it was.

The family business was the only business, it was the lifeblood that most of the Fosgates knew to go by. Though there were cases that some had gone off to work for the Ministry in hopes of other work, though it wasn't a widely accepted sentiment in the family.
