He and his sister refer to themselves as Muggleborn, as they were born to two non-magical parents and grew up without knowledge of magic but the reality is a little more complex than that. Their father is is actually a Squib, disowned by the very Pureblooded Dragomir family of Romania, who would rather cast aside a child and tell the world he died of dragon pox than admit they had ever birthed an aberration. By male bloodlines he is technically the Dragomir heir (his father's sisters have all mothered daughters who now carry the name) which is a fact that annoys him greatly. Naturally Silvia likes to remind him of this whenever he gets too anti-Pureblood families.
While people know Silvia is a ballet dancer, they don't know the same is true of Simon. It's not because he thinks it's unmanly (his father is a dancer as well) but because he likes having something that is his own, without anything to spoil it. He is *awesome* at it.
He's a broody, moody ass with a massive distaste for old-fashioned Pureblood superiority.
If there's a guy standing in a corner making faces, 99% of the time it's him.
Super smart. Super ass. Super smartass.
No, seriously. He's determined to outdo everyone when it comes to magic. You don't have to have magic parents to be amazing.
Speaks fluent Romanian. Most likely saying mean things about you to Silvia in Romanian. (Actually whining to Silvia about why she won't let him go back to his corner.)
Don't. Mess. With. Silvia. Seriously.
Unless he is dancing, Simon is very much an introvert. He likes his space, he likes peace and quiet, and he does not like being involved or contributing to a group. People are draining, and its another thing he finds annoying.
That doesn't neccessarily make him shy. He'll speak up a lot, and only hangs around the edges of rooms because really he doesn't like to have to deal with people he thinks are jerks. Sometimes he'll acknowledge that people are jerks because he was an ass to him first, but not always. He has a need to prove himself to society but not to he individual, so appeals to his ego from one person or another won't work; meanwhile he's constantly challenging himself to be one of the top of everything he does.
Around his sister he's a gentler, more doting individual, with a witty sense of humour and a love of beauty. Dancing lets him express himself better than words ever could, and he's totally not afraid to cry over a performance. Forget traditional ideas of boys not crying. Emotions are manly.
Simon is tall and well-built for his age (which is 16, despite looking older), lean yet well-muscled with broad shoulders, narrow waist, and strong arms able to easily catch and carry his sister - and at 16 he's still got a few years of growing. He'll say it's because he swims a lot, and while he does anyone with an eye should spot that he moves on land with the grace of a dancer not someone born to the water.
Thanks to his Southeastern European heritage, he is olive-skinned and dark-haired, with both features making his blue eyes stand out all the more. He generally wears his hair somewhat short and slicked back, and sometimes artfully messy in the way that looks effortless yet takes way longer to do than it should. His lips are full, his chin has a dimple in the middle, and he has a rather large forehead with more wrinkles than a 17 year old should have (so don't ever point it out).
Simon and his twin sister Silvia were born to a pair of now-retired ballet dancers from Romania. They had fled the country during the 1989 revolution and found a new home in Melbourne with The Australian Ballet. The twins came later in their lives, and were deemed their miracle babies as they had long since given up on having children.
Growing up, there was always a part that was a mystery. While their mother spoke freely of her family, their father rarely did. As far as they knew his family had never approved of them and he had not spoken to them since he left when he was in his teens. They did not even know the family name - their father had taken their mother's name of Bican instead.
The strange expressions on their parents' faces when something unexplainable happened was completely unrelated, surely.
Then when they were 11 two bombs were dropped. First, magic was real, and both the twins had it. And second... their father had been born in that world, and ejected from it for not having magic. Kicked out of home at eleven and left among the Muggles while the magical community was told he had died, their father was a Squib born to the very ardently Pureblooded Dragomir family. A Squib was not to be tolerated.
This rocked Simon's world more than the existance of magic ever could. He loved his father, his father was a great guy - who could ever not want him? These people were wrong, were mean, were monsters - and it was an attitude that would continue to fester as he grew older and closer to his father, as he encountered more of the magical community despite Australia's more progressive nature.
He studied and worked hard, determined to be one of the top of his class and prove to everyone that you didn't need to be of a certain standing of breeding stock to be a great wizard or witch. (He would conveniently ignore his own standard of breeding stock, skipping back over his Squib father).
With his seventh and final year approaching, and adulthood soon after, Simon is about to find out who he really is. Because really, he needs to.
