Raphael - A big ol' bull dog. Raphael is very nice, but kind of messy. He has a tendency to take a shine to certain students and disrupt class by tackling and licking the students.

First Impression»» [/b]
Comrade Pigeye seems very spacey to everyone. He always seems to be in his own little world. He has trouble picking out clothes and such, so he often looks mismatched. He is not very polite and doesn't seem very wizardly. Mostly, he seems like a fish out of water. People often just whisper about him, too afraid to talk to him, but too inquisitive to ignore him.
Self Image»» [/b]
Pigeye tends to think of himself as a failure and an example to others of what not to do with their life. He knows that he has made some bad decisions and wants to teach others about how to live life. Sometimes he believes he is beyond redemption, where at other times he believes his current mental state is punishment enough.
Positive Traits»» [/b]
- Friendly - Pigeye is nice to everyone at first. He will then see how they act to him and see them accordingly. It is hard to dislike Pigeye. To be annoyed by him is easy, but to genuinely dislike him is rather difficult. He treats all his students the same, loving way in class. It's only outside of class that he may be angry at his meaner students.
- Experienced - Pigeye has been around the block more than a few times. He has seen the best of times and the worst of times. He is willing to divulge his past for those who seek it. He sees himself as a mentor because he knows exactly what every student of his is going through because he has most likely gone through it as well. From an unreturned crush, to crabs, to heroin addiction, Comrade has done it.
- Honest - Comrade Pigeye has always been..... blunt. He won't sugarcoat things. He believes that lying will only get you in trouble or hurt the person later. He doesn't like to tell people just what they want to hear, he tells the whole picture. This has made more than a few people mad at him. He thinks that honesty is the best policy.
- Intelligent - Pigeye has always believed he could probably talk somebody to suicide if he really tried. He often pretends to be dumb so people won't expect anything from him, but he impresses people with his spurts of highly intelligent thought that stumps even Ravenclaws. If it wasn't for his acid accident (explained in Negative Traits), he probably could have become Headmaster.
- Silly - If there is one thing that Pigeye likes, its humor. He is constantly making jokes to and about his students. He doesn't quite understand what's offensive, so sometimes, his younger students will be left sitting in their seats blushing all class. If he doesn't feel like teaching, he'll take the class to tell jokes and ask students to tell some of their favorites.
Negative Traits»» [/b]
- Acid Accident - When Pigeye was younger, he was fond of hallucinogens. Mushrooms, acid, and peyote. One day, he spilt a vial of acid into a cut on his hand. He absorbed almost 100 hits of acid at once. This ended up frying his brain and making him go slightly insane. He has stopped understanding people well. He has many memory problems and he has a tendency to rant. Sometimes, at random times, he'll have an acid flashback and suddenly start tripping. He has done this in the middle of class and had to be rushed to the Hospital Wing.
- Rude - After his acid accident, his mental filter turned off. He will often say whatever he is thinking, which may offend some people. Because he is so honest, he often says inconvenient truths that will make people think he is rude, which he is. He won't think about what people think of him, causing him to say something is boring or something similar. He will burp in public and not think twice of it.
- Talkative - Pigeye likes to tell stories. Because his filter is off, he often says whatever is on his mind. He has a lot on his mind. He will rant to the class about the time he was addicted to opium in China for hours on end. He often will hold class late so he can finish his story. He doesn't realize when he is talking too much and will just continue to talk as long as he has something to say.
- Forgetful - Acid did many things to his memory. He has notes written all over is office and he has a notepad with him wherever he goes full of notes to himself. Students have to write anything they want him to remember down or else he'll forget it by the next day. Pigeye doesn't assign homework because he knows he will forget to grade it. He forgets his students names all the time. Only students that he really likes will have their names remembered.
- Indecisive - Never ask Pigeye to make a decision. It will take him hours and by the time he makes it, he may forget what he was deciding. Pigeye is afraid he will make the wrong decision and it will lead him down a path he doesn't want to be on. He is always thinking of every consequence for every decision. He cannot help but do it, it is something that comes with the mixture of his accident and natural intelligence. It borderlines paranoia.
- Sex - Pigeye had a lot of sex in his younger days. He even has some nowadays. He is still considered classically handsome in his old age and can sometimes seduce people half his age.
- Soft drugs - Bud, shrooms and booze. Even though harder drugs scare Pigeye shitless, he is still a fan of the classics. He will actually use softer drugs with his students and Max Tripigo.
- Music - Comrade Pigeye has always had a love of music. He enjoys listening to bands such as the Beatles, the Doors, MC5 and Captain Beefheart.
- Playing the fiddle - Pigeye loves his fiddle. He can be heard playing it in the middle of the night in the courtyard. His fiddle style is unorthodox, but experimentally beautiful.
- His dog - Raphael is more of a son to Pigeye than his son is. He makes sure his dog is perfectly happy and will do nothing that causes his dog pain. Anyone who hurts Raphael will have their safety compromised.
- Jokes - Pigeye loves telling jokes, offensive or not. He encourages the class to tell jokes and with actually stop class if someone says they have a funny joke.
- Hard Drugs - After being addicted to heroin, opium and after his acid accident, Comrade Pigeye despises hard drugs and encourages his students to stay clear of them.
- The Man - The feds! Pigeye hates the capitalist machine and refuses to take part in it. The only man he likes is a free man.
- Snakes - Pigeye doesn't like the way they move, he doesn't trust it. He also thinks that they are going to be slimy even though he knows they aren't. He can look at them, but he can't touch or hold them.
- His mind - Pigeye despises what has become of his brain. He knows fully well how insane he is and it disgusts him.
- Meat - Pigeye became a vegetarian during his time squatting around England. It's not that he cares about the animals, he just never really liked the taste and never had the money to buy any.

Distinctive Features»» [/b]
Pigeye's facial hair changes from one day to the next. He'll often have a mustache. Sometimes a full bushy beard, other, rarer times, he'll just have a goatee. He keeps it relatively clean and sometimes braids it like a viking. He also enjoys curling his mustache so he looks like Dick Dastardly. He has a tattoo of a gypsy woman on his left forearm. He has named her Florica.
Dress Style»» [/b]
Comrade Pigeye enjoys bright colors. He often teaches in just jeans and a t-shirt with maybe a denim jacket. His denim jacket smells like hash and has a couple of patches on it, including bands like the Beatles and MC5 and a Black Panther Party patch. Another dress style he likes is suits of bright colors and a top hat. Sometimes, he thinks he hears his top hat talking, but he knows its in his head. His dress robes look like normal dress robes, but are bright yellow.

Social Status»» [/b]
Pigeye is thought of strangely by students and fellow teachers. Many don't understand his mumbled speaking voice and constant ranting. Many students like him because he lets them have fun in his class, while the students who want to learn rather dislike him because it will take him many lessons to explain something simple.

- Walter Fink - A 50's style dad turned hippie. Deceased
- Meredith Fink - A flower child, had Bill at the age of 19. Age 78
- Victoria Fink - Older sister, hated his parents and became a successful banker. Age 62
- Donald Barton - Out of wedlock son, not much contact between the two. Age 35
- Born to Walter and Meredith Fink, Bill Fink was born in Swansea, Wales. His parents were quite politically active, participating in many protests. Bill and his older sister Victoria were often brought to these demonstrations. Bill loved the protests. They were so full of color and life. His sister, on the other hand, despised them, she, being older than Bill, knew the meaning behind them. Bill and Victoria never got along. She was cynical and always mean to Bill. Bill ran away from home several times because of his emotionally abusive sister. His parents would always go out looking for him and he'd come home in their arms crying. From a young age, his father taught him to play the fiddle. Originally learning bluegrass, Bill became infatuated by making noise. He began experimenting with music, choosing to play to his own beat instead of playing classically. At the age of 10, Bill received his letter to go to Hogwarts, much to the surprise of his family. His sister became overly jealous and ran from home. He never saw her until he graduated from Hogwarts. His parents were supportive of him and proud to have a wizard in the family.
- During his first year at Hogwarts, Bill met Max Tripigo. They became friends and shared a room, although not a bunk. Their gang consisted of Bill, Max and Xenophillus Lovegood. They would occasionally hang out with the older James Potter and his gang of misfits. Bill received very good marks in every class, but created a reputation of being a ruffian and ne'er-do-well. Bill would often pick fights with those that would insult him. During his seventh year, the Headmaster threatened him with expulsion if he did not clean up his act. Bill not to happily obliged. His enemies started provoking him. One day, during dinner, the Slytherins enchanted a bowl of pig's eyes to appear before Bill, in hopes of riling him up. He quietly pushed them aside. Continuing to try and provoke him, they started calling him Pigeye, which he decided to take on as a nickname to spite them. He actually liked the term mudblood and asked them to call him one. After frightening away his enemies, Bill Fink graduated Hogwarts with honors.
- After graduation, the newly named Pigeye had no idea what he wanted to do with his life. he ended up deciding to live with the muggles until he cleared his head. He squatted around the UK, growing his own food. He started using drugs other than marijuana. While squatting, he became addicted to heroin, often mixing it with hallucinogens. It was at this time that he cut his hand and spilt acid into it, causing him to go slightly insane. He had loads of sex, eventually impregnating a 20 year old girl named Cassandra Barton. He paid child support until his money ran out. To escape, he became a stow-away on a ship headed for China. While there, his heroin addiction subsided for his opium addiction. He would spend weeks at a time in underground opium dens. He became a legal citizen of China and grew to love Communism. He worked for the government, translating english documents into chinese or vice versa. He told all that his name was Pigeye, so they would call him "Comrade Pigeye". Eventually, he tired of the government life and moved to a remote village. He became a farmer and learned to grow anything with the help of magic he learned in Hogwarts. He missed the wizarding world and decided to seek it out in China. He came across Biao Qi, School of Sorcery and Mysticism. He learned how to grow plants with magical properties like he never had at Hogwarts. He decided to go back, using the Floo Network. Back at Hogwarts, he applied for the Herbology teaching position. He has been teaching ever since.
