a noncanon harry potter roleplay
Established in March 2017, ALOHOMORA is an intermediate, non–canon Harry Potter roleplay in a — sometimes dark! — slice of life setting. Whether your character is a Hogwarts student or an auror working for the Ministry of Magic, our interactive world is steeped in possibility — and, of course, magic!

We encourage members to create and drive their own plot arcs, and as a community, emphasize good writing and character development. Want to join? Read our information, and pop into the cbox! We hope to meet you soon.
ACTIVITY LOG 4/15. It's that time of month! Our latest activity log is up, so don't forget to post in it by April 30th to save your characters!

As important positions are filled, members need to know where their character stands in terms of claiming their own positions. The position requirements thread allows members with the following positions—Headmaster, Deputy Headmaster, Head of House, or Quidditch Captain—to write blurbs on what they look for when appointing other characters to positions or teams.

If you're considering claiming a position for your character, please review the requirements listed by the following characters. Some will not have requirements; others may be stricter than the rest. Please note that, while staff will consider these requirements when reviewing new applications, we will not refuse your character a position without good reason. However, these requirements should be used as a guideline when considering positions.
Headmasters have control over several positions, including: faculty hires (especially professors), heads of houses, and head girl & boy. Though the Deputy Headmaster has influence on these decisions, the final decision is ultimately made by the Headmaster.

Headmaster: Phillipa Hawkins
Those with obvious display of blood prejudices will not be hired. Any opinions they have must be kept to themselves. If they manage to hide it through the interview, any complaints afterwards from students regarding unfair treatment would result in thorough review and be a big strike against them. Pippa would be keen on firing them given the opportunity, if the truth comes to light.

The Head of House minimum age is 35. No exceptions.

Minimum age for a professor is a "flexible" 25. They still have to meet qualifications, though.

Non-professor faculty have more leniency, as they don't teach a subject and aren't as involved in the students' lives.

Those with criminal backgrounds are unlikely to be hired. If hired, Pippa would put them on a really tight leash to ensure no misconduct was happening, and no harm came to the students. they would be regularly supervised.

Anyone who didn't seem to have the student's best interest in mind would likely not be hired. Pippa is most focused on education and the students; the professor has to be able to do their job well.
Deputy Headmaster: Benevolence Knightley
Those with blatant biases are unlikely to have Ben's approval. Professors need to be able to take a neutral, unbiased position.

Potential faculty with overall negative attitudes, dispositions, and unfriendly demeanors (especially in regards to children) will likely not be hired due to the nature of the job. There's some more flexibility with non-professor positions, but anyone in direct contact with students is preferred to have at least a milder disposition around them.

Ben is willing to help those that need it get an interview at Hogwarts, especially those trying to better themselves. She will not bend rules or make exceptions for you, though.

Those with criminal backgrounds are considered on a case-by-case scenario. Dark wizards, however, are definitively not accepted as applicants due to exposure, potential unrest and/or anxiety it could cause amoung students.

Blatant purist views are unacceptable to Ben. Keep it to yourself, and keep it in check, or you will not be considered, or kept on staff for long.

Any faculty members found bullying, abusing, manipulating, and/or taking advantage of students will be strongly considered for dismissal. The students are the #1 priority, and any faculty member that betrays their trust in any way, shape, or form is not welcome in any capacity to the school, regardless how skilled or famous they may be.
After being appointed by the Headmaster, Heads of Houses have control over who they would choose as prefects for their house. They also have some influence over who Head Girl and Head Boy should be.

Head of Gryffindor: Fionn Davies
preferences go here.
Head of Hufflepuff: Benevolence Knightley
Looks for good role models, in both position and character.

Likely to pick students with good, clean records; few or zero detentions, decent academics, good relationships with professors and students, etc.

Will take into consideration student complaints or problems. If student struggles to get along with others, they're less likely to be chosen, as attitude away from professor's eyes is just as important as during class.

Prefers prefects with a warm, familial auras are preferred, as they need to be welcoming to younger students.

Tough but fair – but not just a rule enforcer, but someone students can talk to. This is especially true for sixth and seventh year prefects, and any potential Head Girl or Boy candidates.

Head of Ravenclaw: Manish Tripathy
Favours students that have excellent academics and the capacity to take on more than just the regular school workload. Those with the ability to perform under stress and retain composure are also looked towards. Impartiality is a trait he advocates, but he will concede that some rules are meant to be broken.

Above all, Manish practices a high degree of favoritism - prefects picked by him must have a good relationship with him, be it through their excellent academics, admirable work ethic, or a certain way with words they have with him. Anyone who doesn't get along with him is unlikely to find themselves being offered the position.
Head of Slytherin: Leon Baer
Favors students who do well in their classes, extracurricular activities, and have clean records. Likely to pick students who have a close relationship with him and gets along with other students. Any outstanding complaints against the student from other students will be taken into consideration.

Will take into consideration their blood statuses and their opinions of others. Will not choose anyone who has a strong bias against muggles, muggleborns, and half breeds.

Prefers prefects who embody Slytherin house traits, and seem charming, friendly.
After being appointed captain by the Flying Instructor, quidditch captains are permitted to build their team as they see fit. In short, they have control over their teammates.

Gryffindor Captain: Yulia Pavlo
Yulia practises inclusiveness in selection, but still prioritises playing skill above all else. Gryffindor's aim for this year is to win the Quidditch Cup, and anyone who isn't prepared to give it their all will be called out without question.

First string members should be prepared to commit to three times a week training both on and off the pitch and must not take issue with her leadership. Those with blood prejudices and purist purebloods are likely to not be considered for the team.

Hufflepuff Captain: River Brooks
requirements here.
Ravenclaw Captain: Tony Bisognin
As a captain, Tony's focus is strategy. He prioritizes experience and logic when choosing his players: ones who thoroughly know the game and fit their positions. That said, he's most likely to keep sixth and seventh years on first string. He would also only put a petite person as seeker, buff people as beaters, and so forth.

Tony holds practice three times a week, as well as an additional team meeting after the first practice of the week. He doesn't allow veelas on his team, but otherwise, any blood status or species is welcome—so long as they're good.
Slytherin Captain: Remy de Villiers
requirements here.
