Alexandre Boulanger | Fifth Year | Pureblood | Michael Cera | Taken
Despite growing up in a completely functional wizarding family, Alexandre is not the most normal of students. He is fidgety and paranoid to the point of seeming insane. And who knows? Looking at his constant twitching, arbitrary obsessions, and conversations with no one, Alexandre is definitely a candidate for a multitude of Muggle mental illnesses. Because of his rather eccentric disposition, Alexandre has remained somewhat isolated from his peers. He won’t hesitate to be friendly to those who approach him, but starting a conversation on his own is far too daunting. Alexandre spends his free time rewriting his assignments over and over, fearing that he’ll flunk Potions because of his messy scrawl. True to his surname, Alexandre dreams of becoming a baker or a chef. He doesn’t want fame or recognition, but simply finds the act of measuring and mixing ingredients to be one of the few things that can calm his jitters. Alexandre has a penchant for others’ hands, which grows from an increasing distaste of his own. A number of his nervous habits include destroying the skin around his cuticles, gnawing his nails past the quick, and cleansing and scrubbing his palms until they’re dry and cracking.
