Personal Life Edit
Personality: Jack is very outgoing, but he becomes introverted when he's upset and Lord help anyone who makes any negative remark about his family. Though most people would think of him as a very happy person, he can become very intimidating the minute a person makes any remark or gossips about his parents or siblings. Such extends to his beloved friends as he prefers to keep to a close circle of friends whom he thinks of as a surrogate family. He is exceedingly weary of new people to the point that his sister Jennifer has called him paranoid.
He can be very manipulative when he want to be, something that came in handy at the beginning of the war in order to ferry information over to the Order. However, he tries quite hard to not do so consciously anymore. He dislikes the idea that he could manipulate his friends in any manner. It is part of the reason he plays Guitar and writes his own music as he considers it an outlet for the emotions that normally manifest into manipulative, controlling behavior.
Marital status: Single
Sexual Orientation: Homosexual

Appearance: With a slim build and an unassuming visage that makes him appear quite approachable, Jack's clothing tends to make him appear more youthful. He believes that it is what helps him to get younger victims and witnesses to open up to him. He tries to make himself as neat as possible when at the MLE so as to give himself an air of professionalism. Off duty, he's typically more laidback and is much messier lending to an aura of humor and contentment.
Weight:153 Lbs/69,3 Kg
Style of dress: Jack tends to dress in typical clothing for someone his age. Ofttimes, he can be found wandering around in worn denim jeans and layered tee shirts unless he is at work where he tries his best to dress proper. Khakis, dark trousers, polo shirts, and jumpers are common in his workwear. His dark hair is either spiked or flat depending on whether or not he had enough money that week for hair gels.
Harper was a student of Slytherin house & a substitute chaser for their quidditch team. He had an interest in school, but kept only average grades; he was often times found with his friends instead of doing his schoolwork. He swore he did better under the pressure of a deadline. He also spent several hours a week on the pitch, trying to improve his skills. He never brought home any boyfriends (to his mother's chagrin). It was during his years at Hogwarts that his interest in his father grew; he still refuses to call Chris anything other than his proper name despite having known him since he was six years old. No one in Slytherin asked about the peculiarity of him calling his "father" Chris after a row one day in the courtyard in second year where a third year left with a black eye.
Harper helped the Order, though it alienated him from his friends. At the outbreak, he had been told by one of his closest friends that he was expected, as a pureblood, to aid in the efforts of the Deatheaters or become one of those marked to die. Jack managed to convince his friend that he was going to help and demanded the specifics of the attack. Convinced that he would aiding, Jack's friend told him and Jack went straight to Ron Weasley. Thereafter, he refused to discuss his work nor to associate with the friends he had lost to Voldemort and the rest of his circle slowly drew away from him. He chose to focus on his work for the Order, of which he had become a member after displaying a particular talent for protection charms as well as the need for protection himself. He helped with the defectors, bringing those who deserved it to safety. He fought minimally on the front lines; while others battled, he often found those needing to be rescued and removed them to safety. Jack, again, preferred to stick to himself as he did his work, finding that the less people around to interfere with anything needing to be done, the better. He still prefers it when possible.
Jack decided he wanted a different life than that which he had lived during the war. However, he was unsure what exactly that was. He took a trip to Salem, Mass.; he traveled to France and to Egypt. His mother called it a "self-discovery journey" and Chris told him to take his time. Jack decided it was time to grow up. He looked to the MLE for work and was placed into Homicide due to his ease at questioning suspects. Harper spends as much time there as he can; he usually returns home to sleep, eat, and shower. His flat is nearby; it's a one bedroom flat with one bathroom and what Jack has called "a kitchen fit for a bachelor." There are often clothes strewn about, and it is not uncommon for him to find no food in the cupboards. His mother and younger sister, Jennifer, sometimes visit for a weekend to shop in London, though Jack knows it is also his mother's way of checking up on him as he does not go home too often. He remains without a partner.
