I'm Arantor, one of the founding administrators and chief technical wizard of Floo.Network
. I like writing, various flavours of fantasy and sci-fi (obviously, including Harry Potter), and computing; for a day job I do website development and engineering. Floo, obviously, is a glorious unification of all of these hobbies together in one shiny place.
I'm also the lead developer on StoryBB - the software we use to power this site.In CharacterHarold Prendergast
, first year at Hogwarts as a teacher, teaching Arithmancy of all things. He is a complicated and oddly private person, and part of his being here at Hogwarts is to take some of the very unusual and oddly specific knowledge he has acquired and share it for the greater good. Always happy to engage with students and staff on the fundamental elemental natures of magic, its theory, its practice and practical applications of science upon magic. Also known to be very partial to a delicious cup of tea or three.Bobby Cashmore
, returning to Hogwarts for his third year of tuition. Muggleborn, but tries not to let that stop him engaging with the world and wanting to know more about it. I also occasionally bring Geoffrey Cashmore
into threads for a little father/son drama.Deitha Albron

, current headmaster of Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft.Lincei
