Seeking Nymphadora Tonks  

Before considering this character or applying for this game, please at least skim the following threads so you are familiar with game history and have a sense of whether this is a game for you.

We are a large game that has been in-play for two years. This naturally means that Muns have come and gone as interest waxes and wanes. We are eager and willing to help new players get settled in, but having an understanding of the starting foundation of the game is particularly helpful for everyone.

We do not want someone to attempt to mimic previous Mun's playing style, but it is often necessary to keep certain plot-points pertaining to the character involved because it has a broad-game effect.

Please note: Blatant plagiarism of a previous application will not be tolerated and will result in instant rejection of the application.

This topic will review the important game-history points for this character.

Remus and Tonks broke off their lukewarm romantic relationship early in the game, when Remus realised he could not love her like she loved him. For a long time he viewed her as a very dear friend and loved her deeply, though planonically. This 'ship will not be restored.

Tonks, as played by the previous Mun, was so rabidly disgusted by Remus' budding relationship with Severus Snape that she became slightly unhinged ala Black hereditary mental-stability issues. She was blatantly unhelpful when a member of Remus' pack went missing and was eventually executed by the Ministry even though she was innocent of the crime in question. Her death devastated Remus' pack, and Nymphadora's cruelty in blaming Snape and Lupin's actions for contributing to Mandy's death has severed all contact between Remus and Tonks for the present.

Affected threads can be read here and are listed chronologically:





Tonks is still an Auror and a very good one - though she is still and will always be *very* clumsy - please do not bring an application for a suddenly 'graceful' Nymphadora Tonks. She was in charge of the Ministry Registry wand checks of Snape, Draco, and Lupin's pack of six werewolves for the first several months of the game, and got to know them all fairly well, which is part of the reason she was summoned for assistance when Mandy went missing.

Other relationships both friendly and romantically, have occurred throughout the game, though nothing solid or long-lasting as we have not had a long-term Mun in this role. A new Mun is free to take Tonks in any direction desired, whether she is remotely contrite for her slightly irrational behaviour during Remus' tragedy or if she has gone further into a darker mind-set and wishes to establish new ties and loyalties.

The successful applicant will also have time to role-play on a very regular basis, and will be willing to work closely with the Admin team and to make Tonks a strong Auror-side-plot-driver (regardless of secret, personal motivations), including contributing to plot suggestions and development, as well as actively participating in the ones already planned.
