Miles Newberry is the only son of Muggle property magnate Simon Newberry and his pureblood American wife, Valerian. Her family is famous for Potion-making, and they have named their unfortunate daughters after their craft. The Horned Serpent alumnus went on to take the business to new shores, setting up her family’s first European branch just outside of Paris where she met her future husband. She eventually turned over her shop to a cousin when she fell pregnant and moved to England to get married. Wait... did you think Miles was a planned child? Guess again - it was a shotgun wedding, not some kind of fairytale.
With two high-achieving parents and plenty of wealth, all eyes and expectations were on their young protege to excel at everything he tried. Miles quickly proved himself to be an intelligent boy with an inflated ego and a drive to prove himself to be the best. He is definitely competitive know-it-all with a destructive mean streak, and any perceived slight against his intelligence and abilities will earn his immediate and lasting ire. He also knows the difference between kissing ass and kicking it and he is not above doing either, although he prefers conducting the latter with a little help from his lackies. He is the type of guy who will have a person held down so he can hurt them. Bullying others boosts his mood. It is also where all of his perceived power comes from; he relies on the fear of a select few to do his bidding. Without that fear, he would be nothing and he is very much aware of that fact.
Because his parents expect him to be perfect in every way and suprpass their achievements one day, including starting a sucessful family of his own one day. While his father is known to be a traditionalist with an emphasis on sucess and creating the next eminent progeny, his mother is much worse. Valerian Newberry is an excessive homophobe with an obsession for driving those tendencies out of her son’s head since discovering his is gay. Miles takes after his mother in so many ways and fears the displeasure of his parents. As such, he is homophobic, disgusted with himself, and is deeply closeted when it comes to his sexuality, despite being outed to the school by the housemate he was crushing on. He will deny being attracted to other men even to himself no matter how much evidence there is of the opposite.
He enjoys Quidditch, is a Ballycastle Bats supporter, and is deeply resentful that he doesn’t have a place on his house team. His other hobbies include playing wizard chess and inflicting pain and misery on others. And he is more than happy to point out when others are doing something wrong, and will ridicule them for it, Miles doesn't do well placed in that situation himself. If done publicly, even the smallest act could earn his resentment forever.
Is he a bully? Yes. Does he have any redeeming qualities? You’ll just have to find that out for yourself.
Miles was recently made Head Boy. While this didn’t come as a shock to the wizard, he had kissed all the right asses after all, it brings a new set of challenges and the kind of power he would seek to abuse.
It is possible for Miles to have friends and lovers, in addition to the many enemies he’ll pick up and those he bullies. These plots are all open to explore.
