Oliver Wood

Wizard | Quidditch Pro | England Captain | Scottish

Oliver is a character in the Harry Potter book series. He is Scottish, speaks with a broad accent, and is three years older than Harry and friends. We were introduced to him as Captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team in the first book, Philosopher's Stone. He left Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at the end of Harry's third year and went on the Puddlemere United Quidditch team as a reserve.

Here, he is written as a muse for RP purposes approximately ten years after the end of the final book and is a part of the Post-Hogwarts PSL verse, [community profile] acciolife.

Birthday: 11th November
Marital Status: Dating George Weasley
Sexuality: Gay
Likes: Quidditch, men, sex, winning, Scotch, even more winning
Dislikes: Muggle football, losing, mushrooms


After his canon introduction above, Oliver went on to rapidly work his way up the Quidditch ladder from Puddlemere United reserves to part of the English Quidditch Premier League team. He spent two years in playing for England until a nasty accident knocked the Captain out of action for good, and Oliver was appointed the position. He takes his job very seriously and is crazily competitive on all levels.

After he graduated Hogwarts, he moved to London as a base and the penny dropped that it wasn't witches that were catching his eye in the slightest. A bit of experimentation, and he came out of the closet and being a celebrity in the Wizarding World from his position on the English team, he's become a bit of a Wizarding gay icon. He now lives with his other half, George Weasley in a modest apartment in London overlooking the Thames. Oliver was a massive support for George following the Battle of Hogwarts that took his beloved twin, and they grew close as a result of it, with Oliver helping George come to terms with his own sexuality, a secret only his twin knew for many years.


Oliver sees himself as a basic guy. He is passionate about sports and is innately competitive by nature. He HATES losing. Despite not being able to play any longer, he is still deeply involved in his love of sports, always up-to-date with the latest results and outcomes of the Quidditch League. He is friendly and kind, the sort of guy to give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it. An ever-typical Gryffindor, he is a loyal and trustworthy friend and knows a lot of people.

He used to have abysmal luck in the romance stakes, with no relationships really sticking or could tolerate putting up with his competitive nature. He likes relationships to be exciting and playful, and once George recovered from his grief, was just the challenge Oliver was looking for.
