INFORMATION & SETTING
Rappaport's law strictly forbids any fraternization with non magical folk. Witches and Wizards have long been forbidden from any intermingling; no friendship, certainly no romance. Support for a repeal grows, though, and many fear North America's magical line dying out without fresh bloodlines. Mysterious disappearances tied to witch hunters have occurred throughout the magical community, however. So, which fear will win out? The fear of being wiped out or the fear of fading away?

Gunny was born on a warm summers evening, in the grass on the side of the highway. His family - mom, dad, seven brothers and two sisters - were driving back from a trip to Rehoboth beach when mom's water broke unexpectedly early. Gunny's Dad, Patrick, was determined to make it back to Baltimore before the baby came. The labor progressed quickly, however, and there was no time. Gunny came into the world small, shriveled and squalling; the last of ten children born to Patrick and Cecily Maloney.

Even as he grew, Gunny stayed small. He was shorter than the other kids and relatively fine boned. With seven brothers and very little parental oversight - his father worked long hours at the port of Baltimore and his mother was always busy keeping house for her large family - Gunny learned from a very young age how to be quick on his feet, how to throw punches and stand his ground. He had the run of the streets, always with a big brother to keep an eye on him and make sure he didn't get into too much trouble. His upbringing wasn't particularly happy, though; his father, a Marine Corp. veteran, injured during WWI and thus ineligible for action in WII, was a hard man and a strict disciplinarian who never hesitated to take a belt to a misbehaving child. Two of Gunnar's brothers were wild and often cruel, taking great pleasure out of tormenting the younger Maloney children in the name of "character building."

When Gunny turned eleven and a MACUSA representative came to talk to his parents, it was one of the brightest days of his life. It took a lot of time and explaining before his parents gave in and granted permission for Gunny to go off to the strange school in New England, but he looked forward to finally getting away, to get out of the shadow and watchful gaze of his siblings. He wasn't even sorry about the requirement that he lie to his family or that he was expected to cut off ties once he graduated. It didn't bother him; his family had never made him feel like anything more than another burdensome mouth to feed, anyway.

His first impression of Ilvermorny was that it was the most beautiful place he'd ever seen. The green woodland, the flowing rivers, the views from the top of Mount Greylock; it was so much nicer than the dingy, dirty cityscape he was accustomed to. He was in love from the beginning and knew he was where he needed to be. Still, though, it was a rough start. He was brash, defensive and quick to throw a fist; detentions came often and friends were few and far between. Eventually, however, he settled in and his time away from his family softened him some. He would never be a perfect gentleman, he would never be sweet and gentle, but it became apparent that there was more to the boy than attitude. Gunny was loyal and steadfast, determined, fearless and strong. He had a fighter's spirit, restless and headstrong, and with the help of his Wampus housemates and the other friends he'd made, he finally really began to come into his own during second year.

Gunny's grades were never outstanding, but he got by. He worked hard but struggled with academia when there was so much else to see, so many interesting things to learn and discover. Quodpot quickly became a favorite past time; being in the air was about the best feeling in the world and even when the quod exploded it was exciting and fun. He's hoped all summer to be appointed the Wampus team captain for the new school year and it's one of the things he's most looking forward to as he heads back to school.
