Wanted to be a pilot, but repressed that dream upon learning that he is a wizard.
Doesn't know who his father is- neither does his mother. Ollie is actually his half-brother, not his full brother.
Doesn't want to be a jerk (nobody would guess).
His mother is his biggest fan, who could spend days talking about his accomplishments. She has repeatedly called him "her little Einstein", including in public social media posts. She often acts as if Ben is her only son. Whenever he doesn't answer texts or is late to arrive home, she contacts his friends.
Is very smart. However, he has zero interest in helping others out, and is more likely to scorn those less knowledgeable.
He has a younger brother named Oliver "Ollie"- this however was not known by nearly anyone at Tallygarunga until the boy began attending too, two years after Ben. The reason for this is that the two are not close, nor alike, at all, and their mother has always favoured the eldest. Ollie is a Spencer student.
Has a temper- he's hot and cold, really; either he doesn't care at all about a topic, or HE HAS TO GET HIS WAY.
Often argues with his mother- he starts the fights.
Is a chess prodigy, and has won multiple competitions from an early age- how is it general knowledge? Two words: his mother.
Ben is a complex person who experiences a wide range of emotions- however, he doesn't show it. His input to group conversations tends to consist only of sarcastic, bordering on rude, comments. Being on the quiet side, as well as arrogant, he appears aloof and disinterested- especially in situations that would call for compassion or solidarity. Nonetheless, due to him looking threatening and having a bit of a temper, he became a bully instead of a pariah.
He is a very intelligent guy, and he is starting to realize that he is not behaving appropriately- but he is not sure what to do differently. In addition to that, he's afraid- his life so far has been great, right? He does well in his classes- he's probably a genius, in fact (an opinion that his mother's adoration certainly helped cement); people find him cool, or they are scared of him- whatever the case, they respect him. And he can probably do anything he wants in the future…
Coming out as gay would, for Ben, also mean change- he thinks people wouldn't look at him the same. Therefore, he doesn't plan to. He's even considering dating girls, for the sake of appearance.
Despite his mother loving him to the moon and back, Ben doesn't feel strongly for her, nor for his brother, and he thinks they're both too stupid, annoying, and less special than him- ironically, it is his mother that played the biggest role in him feeling "special".
He gravitates towards people he can feel superior in some way to, and he unconsciously always ranks people's abilities and such......
He likes Astronomy a lot.
Slightly wavy black hair that's usually rather long and messy (though his mother forces him to brush it for important events). Dark brown eyes. Very tall (188cm - 6'2"). Quite slender.
His overall appearance is that of an arrogant jerk who believes himself to be better than everybody- and his personality only confirms it. He walks slowly and generally holds his head high and his shoulders straight- because he's amazing, obviously, and people should have the chance to admire him.
On the rare occasions he earnestly smiles, he has a beautiful smile- but normally he just smirks superiorly.
He prefers plain, solid one colour clothes, but he owns other stuff too.
Ben and Ollie's mother is a woman who travelled a lot, slept around a lot, and pretty much used men for their money and her pleasure. As such, she doesn't even know who Ben's father is. She does know Ollie's, but they were never a family- he pays child support and that's about it. People think he's the father of both boys, unless he tells them otherwise- but generally he prefers to pretend like Ollie and his mother do not even exist, so the lie is still standing.
Her focus shifted however once it turned out that Ben was a very clever boy, and began making a name for himself within chess players circles- she became his manager, photographer, number one fan, all wrapped up in one- too bad she was never really a mother to him, and didn’t teach him manners and the sort, her advice resolving solely around impressing people. From that moment on, it was almost as if Ollie did not exist at all- to see her social media posts, one would think she only has one kid.
Needless to say, both Ben and his mom were elated when it turned out that he was a wizard and that he could attend a "special" school- he still goes to chess competitions, too, for the hubris, but has since excelled in the study of magic.
