Luna is one of my favorite characters, and I want to write her to the best of my ability. But it would be pretty hard to write about her adult life if her husband just seems like some faceless shadow figure inside my head. So, I'm starting a thread on Rolf to help me get better in touch with his character. I'll start this thread off with a few points on Rolf I have just started considering lately.
How do you think he and Luna met? We know he was at least not in Harry's class, and it doesn't seem like he and Luna met in the common way of going to class together. What are some other ways the two of them could have met?
How much older or younger do you think Rolf is than Luna? We have never heard him mentioned in the books (I have a feeling if he is able to handle Luna on a daily basis, he certainly could have handled being a member of the DA and facing off against Umbridge). I almost imagine him as never having attended Hogwarts at all, being on of those home-educated children because his parents were always traveling. The caring of magical creatures seems to be somewhat of a Scamander family business, so I feel like his parents would have been a part of it as well.
But if he was at Hogwats, what house do you feel he would be in? What kind of student do you see him as? He certainly wouldn't be just an ordinary face to draw the attentions of Loony Lovegood. If he did go to Hogwarts, she would have at least see him from time to time.
And as far as career goes, what kind of Naturalist do you see him as. I see him as a more organized type of indevidual who did most of the recording of Luna's discoveries. Do you see them working together as a team, or possibly each having their own specialties?
