Animagus Appearance: Medium sized, slender, and has blonde hair. His coat is on the thick side, and very easy to get dirty because of its color. His nose is a light brown in color. His left eye is blue while his right eye is green. His coat's color is a blonde much like human hair rather then that of a normal dog, although the texture of the coat is the same as a normal dog.
Luka stands at an even six feet tall, a height in between both his parents. He has blonde hair with very unique eyes. His left eye is blue while his right eye is green (his father has blue eyes and his mother has green eyes). The weird eye color was a source of frustration for him growing up. He's also well built due to running or working out on the nights he can't sleep or wakes up from a nightmare. He tends to dress nicely, loving sweaters over sweatshirts. He doesn't really own sweatpants, but does wear shorts when he's running or working out. When he has nights when he can't sleep, the next day he'll look older then he really is. However, for the most part he looks a couple years younger then his actual age. But really, Luka just wants to look respectable and be taken seriously.
PERSONALITY, TRAITS & QUIRKS
Luka tends to sometimes act more like a soldier then a human being, often following orders he is given. He often has trouble arguing or saying his own thoughts, preferring to keep everything to himself. He's very loyal and that is both a good thing and a bad thing. He's more of a follower then a leader, only taking charge when it's forced upon him. He tries to hide that he has both attachment issues and abandonment issues, since he wants to appear as being normal (although there really isn't such a thing as normal). He is a sweet heart who never really means to do anything wrong, but he can have sharp teeth if he is angered or put in danger. He's really protective of his daughter and his friends. He's extremely bright and catches onto things quick, but often plays down his IQ because he would rather seem normal. He has spent so many years just observing people that he can catch onto how people are feeling by how they act. He's also extremely patient, and doesn't get angry easily (it could take days of annoyance before he'd snap).
Luka is always more relaxed with his family and tends to be a little more carefree. It's quite obvious he's meant for a father role and has that apparent father personality. It's sometimes hard for his workers to believe he can be gentle and can actually smile and laugh like everyone else, but he does.
HISTORY & PAST
Friedrich and Leonie were both born in 1930 and met two years after the end of the second World War. They left Germany to try and have a better life in England. Life in England was better, but it was also rough. Friedrich had also yet to tell his wife he was a wizard. He pretended to get a normal job, but would just apparate back to Germany to intern in the Ministry of Magic as an Auror.
It wasn't until February 14th, 1965 that they had their first child, Luka. His unusual eye color was something his mother seemed to admire. And she seemed to be in love with the small child. Luka had an extremely close bond with his mother, she was his whole world.
Growing up, Luka would toss small fits if his mother left for too long. Things would disappear or break. One time, the tire of the car burst and forced his mother to stay home instead of going away on a trip.
When he was six, his little sister Kerstin was born. She looked like a small version of her mother, especially with her green eyes. It was here that jealousy began to arise in Luka. Within a couple months, Luka's magical ability could not be kept hidden and Friedrich came out to his wife that he was a wizard, as was Luka and possibly Kerstin. Surprisingly, Leonie seemed alright with it.
On Luka's seventh birthday, the boy had caught the flu. His father had also been called away by the Ministry of Magic. As the boy tried to find his mother, he found her leaving. She couldn't live with a magical family, she wasn't okay with it. Her family just wasn't normal and she didn't want anything to do with it. Somehow Friedrich knew this was coming for he returned home, a second after Luka discovered his mother, with a friend from the German Ministry of Magic who was an Obliviator. Luka was horrified as he watched his mother have her memories erased, barely realizing that he would never see her again and she would never remember him. And part of him never got over that and it began to drive his need to want to please others. He doesn't want people to leave him like his mother, and he doesn't want people to forget him.
Luka raised Kerstin when their father had to go to work. One of the things they learned together was to ride a broom, which Kerstin seemed to become in love with. As Luka was about to go off to Hogwarts, his sister began to show magic. It let him go off to school without any worries of Kerstin being non-magical.
Luka was sorted into Hufflepuff, but the boy never felt like he would fit in anywhere. He ended up with Slytherin friends who liked to use him because of his personality. However, he had a few friends in other houses who would try to get him to see that the Slytherin students weren't good guys.
It was in his fourth year that he started to date Taylor Stevens, a Slytherin. She got Luka to abandon all his Slytherin friends, which caused the rest of his friends to see her as a good Slytherin. But she was still a little controlling and treated Luka like he was nothing more then a little dog. In their fifth year, they broke up. It was also in his fifth year that his father was killed while working. Losing his father made Luka try even harder with his grades, which were already fine. He set the goal of becoming an Auror like his father had been.
In his seventh year, he began to date a sly Ravenclaw girl named Michaela, who didn't seem to have a care about the future as long as she graduated and did fine on her O.W.L.s. As soon as they graduated, Luka went right into interning at the Ministry of Magic. He had accomplished his goal of being able to become an Auror, well...he was able to take the first step. He was an intern, which he was already aware was enough to break the weak.
When he was 24, his daughter was born. Luka really didn't know what to do with her. Especially when Michaela left them a couple months later because she no longer wanted a child. She left after Luka stood up and proclaimed that giving up Gabriella was something he couldn't do.
Between work, as now he was a busy Auror, and Gabriella, Luka never had a love life (and he never really thought he'd have time so never bothered with it). But Kerstin stepped up and began to help out with Gabriella once she graduated from Hogwarts. She had begun to play Professional Quidditch, so had the spare time to spend with her niece.
Interests/Hobbies: Music, Quidditch, dancing (ballroom dancing), reading, cooking, playing with legos (You're forced to grow older, but no one forces you to grow up), stargazing, and playing with Gabriella.
