<center><h1>SEDIMENTARY</h1>
<i>Sedimentary rocks are formed from sediments that have settled at the bottom of a lake, sea or ocean, and have been compressed over millions of years. The sediment comes from eroded rocks carried there by rivers or ice, and from the skeletons of sea creatures.</i></center>
<p>

A child is very much like a a seabed built up of layers created from their surroundings: layers of environment, layers of exposure, all compressed together to make an entirely unique person. There's the base of course, the genetics. Maxie's bright red hair, inherited from his father, though the spindly frame and natural curiosity definitely came from his mother. The bad eyesight comes from her too, the jawline from his father, the knack for maths probably also from him, but regardless of the origins, his base layer is set.
<p>
On top of that, the next layer is formed: when Maxie is born he is raised by loving parents - a mother who dotes and a father who works hard to provide. Nothing too unusual there, so that layer of him matches most babies raised in an environment of affection. But then the next layer begins: he is raised in a family with money, experienced luxury, is taught the importance of blood status in the same breath as why you should try hard, and work to earn what you want in life. He is taught that their family may not have been pureblooded, but there were really only a few smudges in their history and if Maxie marries properly they'll be close enough to pure again to get in with the <i>important</i> people.
<p>
The next layer is built from experience, from Maxie exploring his home and his garden and the street outside, developing a quick fascination with insects and rocks and the other natural things around him. This layer is built from curiosity and a freedom to play and trial and learn. This layer isn't smooth though. It has bumps, like the one caused by his rock collection being thrown away because his mother says it's a stupid hobby. And then it merges with the next layer as Maxie is taught the proper etiquette to take when dealing with his peers, which does not include playing in the mud and his behaviour shifts and changes, ever adapting as these private and public personalities are compressed together.
<p>
More and more add on top of each other, and then when he is five years old, a new layer begins. Maxie is crying because its raining outside and he can't play out, but when he steps outside the rain stops, and the sun shines brightly again out of nowhere. It only covers his garden, the perfect square of dazzling bright sun while the rest of the neighbourhood suffers in the rain. His neighbour stares out as Maxie runs across the lawn, now bone dry despite the previous torrential downpour. And Maxie is magic, as his parents always knew he would be, but now they have proof. And his mother's training begins, trying to shape his talents while his father remains mostly distant and simply watches.
<p>
The boy continues to grow, adding layers with each development in his personality and persona. He receives a Hogwarts letter, and his school career is set to begin, stepping away from his home to begin his independent life. He will continue to grow, and develop, and learn, and further layers will add onto the already copious number. But the building stage is over. He is ready.

<p>

<center><h1>METAMORPHIC</h1>
<i>Metamorphic rocks have been subjected to tremendous heat and/or pressure, causing them to change into another type of rock. They are usually resistant to weathering and erosion and are therefore very hard-wearing.</i></center>
<p>

His school life can be summarised by splitting into two halves: the <i>pressure</i>, and the <i>heat</i>. The pressure comes from work. Maxie is naturally smart, declared a Ravenclaw in seconds, his mother calls him 'gifted' but he is happy to just say 'talented'. But his mother is too soft, too mild with her lessons, and Maxie assumes he knows everything before school even begins. He is wrong. But he can learn, he knows how to engage in the classroom, and he enjoys his time within the castle. History of Magic is truly a favourite of his, no surprise to anyone, and so is Care of Magical Creatures. It may not be insects in dirt anymore, but its the same fascination that ties him to the subject. Divination is a surprise, but he enjoys that too. There's no natural talent of course, but he's curious and it's interesting. Ancient Runes and Arithmancy grip him too, so in the end there's a class he enjoys on every day of the week. But it's hard. It's difficult. He tries and he fights and he pushes but the pressure is always there. It's good pressure, necessary pressure, but it's almost all consuming.
<p>
But then there's the other side of things. Then there's the heat, something Maxie doesn't anticipate, something he is unprepared for. A Care of Magical Creatures class involves rearing a flobberworm with an assigned partner - a boring task he is eager to get past to reach the more exciting areas of the course, but his partner makes for an interesting distraction. A boy called Archie, very different to Maxie himself, he is loud and confident and at first Maxie is not happy with the arrangement. They bicker, they debate, they argue, but they succeed. By the end of the project their flobberworm has grown the most, and they are forced to admit they are a good team.
<p>
And it carries on outside of the class, they see each other in other lessons and the same rivalry is sparked. It develops into an odd sort of competitive friendship, which then settles into a more serious friendship, and eventually shifts into something more, though Maxie is not quite sure how that happens. One day though, they are a couple. Not much has changed in the public eye, they still challenge each other in class, but they are much closer in private. They kiss and Maxie does not understand what it means. He is not sure he understands any of it. It is very confusing. But where's the fun in knowing all the answers anyway?
<p>
Pressure and heat build over the years until one day Maxie can no longer take them both at once. He cannot be compressed by the mountain of work he must complete to succeed in his NEWTs, while he is also being burned alive by the intensity of this strange relationship in his life. He cannot do both. He knows he cannot do both. But Archie does not understand. Archie thinks he can. He does not understand that Maxie has limits. And he has to choose. And he has to choose work. He has to. He's always had to.
<p>
So the heat dies out. The pair drift apart, or at least, that's how Maxie always remembers it. In reality it was not such a soft ending. But Maxie is able to focus on his work, and he scores excellently in his NEWTs. He is prepared for a good, ambitious, productive life now. He is also prepared to be alone. He has made his choice. One cannot maintain that level of heat and pressure, one always has to choose. He thinks he made the right choice.

<p>
<center><h1>IGNEOUS</h1>
<i>Igneous rocks are formed by magma from the molten interior of the Earth. When magma erupts it cools to form volcanic landforms. If magma cools inside the Earth it forms intrusive rock, which may later be exposed by erosion and weathering.</i></center>
<p>

When Maxie leaves school, he already has a goal in mind. He will work for the Ministry, and he will become the head of a department. Outside of that, it's a little vague, but the ambition refuses to leave him. And his grades and his passion and his focus mean he rockets towards his goal very quickly, leaping up the hierarchy when he enters the department for the regulation and control of magical creatures. It's like an explosion, an eruption, he does not stay in one position for longer than six months before rising to the next, and he has nearly reached the peak after only a few years working in area.
<p>
Things slow after that, beginning to cool, beginning to settle, and Maxie's progress through the department calms to a more usual pace. He still progresses, but he has time to focus on his own hobbies now as well. He begins to flick back through the ancient texts he studied in school, drawing together all his favourite subjects into one project: could land mass be expanded by the ancient myths of magical creatures, prophesied to return on the right command? Is it possible? Could it be done? Would it help, could it be controlled, would it work? He carries out experiments but they do not always succeed. He trials a vein of magic he has discovered, and people get hurt. His closest assistants, Tabitha and Courtney, they work with him, and the spell extracts the water from their bodies. They choke and gasp and flail and Maxie almost fails to reverse it. They survive. But Maxie throws himself even further into his studies in response.
<p>
His fascination grows as he slides slowly into the position of the head of the department he'd aimed for for so long. He almost doesn't notice. He is too distracted. He is the leader of a grand team, but his focus is elsewhere as everything in his life solidifies into place. He has his team and his work, he is a fearless leader as they take on every challenge the magical creatures of the world can throw at him. And in his own time, he furthers his own research into how the planet can be shaped by magic...
<p>
Cracks are appearing. The department is changing. It is being split into land and sea, and Maxie naturally takes up the land position. He does not mind the change, he likes being able to focus on his research more, with less strain from his job (too much pressure is never good, he knows that from experience). But he does mind his new partner. He does mind who has taken up the opposing helm. He does mind who he is working with.
<p>
Archie is once again a part of his life.
<p>
And he knows it will not be long until the heat is back.

<h1>CONNECTIONS</h1>

<b>NAME:</b> Maximilian is just the long form of Maxie, and Ruber is the Latin word for red which is where the word 'ruby' comes from, and since he's the antagonist of Pokémon Ruby that seemed like a good choice. Adam is quite a boring name for a wizard admittedly, but it means 'red Earth', which is kind of perfect for the Ruby antagonist who wants to extend the land.
<p>
<b>MAGIC:</b> A camel patronus is partly because his signature Pokémon is Camerupt, but also because they represent stamina and the ability to thrive in tough conditions, which fits Maxie very well. His boggart is drowning because in the game his team is the natural enemy of Team Aqua and is trying to stop their sea expanding etc. And then his wand is fir because it "favour owners of focused, strong-minded and, occasionally, intimidating demeanour" which works for him really well I think. Then dragon heartstring partly because it learns fast and is powerful so is a great core for long forgotten magic research, but also because it matches Archie's and I wanted to give them that connection.
<p>
<b>BLOOD STATUS:</b> In the games, Maxie always comes off as quite haughty, and holier-than-thou in his attitude, particularly in the original Ruby though admittedly less so in the remake. This scale-down between the games, along with the fact there doesn't seem to be much backing to this attitude, and that the player character can easily gain his respect over the course of the game which suggests its not that he thinks they're 'lesser' than him in any way, made me want to give him a snippet of elitism without the whole background. So basically, instead of being a pompous pureblood, he's a halfblood raised with a few of those ideals (because his mum wants to try and get them in with proper society and 're-purify' their blood) so he's picked up the demeanour, but doesn't really buy into any of the elitism.
<p>
<b>APP STYLE:</b> Since Maxie has such a strong connection to the land and ground and all that, I couldn't help but use the three types of rock to lay out his app. They actually work really well for the three stages of his life so far. Childhood is sedimentary, because it's about building him up as a person, slowly, carefully, over time, in layers of detail. Then his school life is metamorphic, heat and pressure - the heat coming from his relationship with Archie, the pressure coming from how much he throws himself into his academics. And then his work life is igneous which is partly just a nod towards the fact he's becoming more recognisable as Team Magma's leader, but also because he erupts up the ladder at first, and then cools down and solidifies into the position he belongs in.
<p>
<b>CAREER:</b> Maxie is obviously very connected to Groudon, the legendary Pokémon of Ruby, who was said to create and expand the lands. He therefore has a clear connection to land creatures, hence his position in the Ministry. On Bomb this is because he had a great talent for Care of Magical Creatures at school, and always wanted to be in a position of leadership, so he just ended up combining the two. His research into land expansion (explained below) is still very prevalent, but its a side hobby to him as right now, its not something he could actually make a career out of.
<p>
<b>RESEARCH:</b> In the games, Maxie's great evil plan is to expand the landmass of the planet to allow for more space for the growing population etc etc. Since global warming and expanding seas are still real problems in our world, it makes sense that someone would be looking into land-expanding as a way to combat that. What Maxie is looking into specifically is the ancient myths from magical communities of how the Earth was formed, which states a giant creature called Groudon fought another called Kyogre and their battle created land and sea (so basically Pokémon canon). He doesn't believe it was creatures, but instead things it was an ancient form of magic that's been lost to us, and its that that he's researching alongside his usual work.
<p>
<b>OTHER:</b> It's not actually noted in his app but his birthday is the 24th of August because that's the height of summer, but also the date Vesuvius erupted over Pompeii, which was arguably the most famous volcanic eruption in history. And Courtney and Tabitha are the only named Team Magma members in the game, so they are referenced as part of his 'Groudon' research in the Igneous part of his app.

<div class="bc_ship"><div class="bc_ship2"><div class="bc_ship3">

Leader of an evil team bent on expanding the world's landmass to help with the growing population (so not as evil as some of his colleagues then), Bombarda's Maxie is a little more toned down, for now at least. Though he is working on his own research to uncover the secrets of an ancient form of magic that is said to be able to shape the land, its more of a side project than a main focus right now. Instead, his life really revolves around his work as head of the land beast division of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, now in the Ministry of Europe. He's known for being a little bit dull by his colleagues, far too interested in talking about rocks to be an asset at any dinner party, but that's mostly just a first impression. Once you get past that, he can be very enthusiastic about the things he likes, and any assumed snobbery from the way he holds himself will melt away in favour of him taking you through presentation slides of what he's currently the most passionate about.

<br><br><br>

<h2>FRIENDS</h2>
Though not a pureblood, both his parents are magical, and his mother was very keen to try and 'repurify' their blood - they have some muggle ancestry but it's not <i>too</i> much so surely a few more generations and they could be considered pure again... So in his youth, Maxie was dragged along to a lot of play dates with pureblood children to try and encourage him to make connections with them. As an adult though, he himself doesn't really care about this and will likely befriend anyone who's willing to put the time in with him. He's mot picky, but he's also not one to act particularly different with a best friend or an acquaintance, so it can actually be difficult to tell if he even likes you or not.
<p>
<i>Any purebloods he could have met as a kid would be good for this category, even if it was just a couple of brief meetings and they're only acquaintances now. As an adult, anyone at all could fit in this category, but bare in mind all he really does is work and research, so unless you catch him at the Ministry or the library, it might be hard to pin him down.</i>
<p>

<h2>LOVERS</h2>
Maxie himself believes he has no time for this, and that if he ever were to consider dating, it would be a nice pureblood girl from a good family, and would be done mostly for convenience and family ties than for actual love. He doesn't exactly develop crushes easily, and since he throws himself so hard into his work, he's more or less decided that it would take too long and too much effort to get to know someone well enough to actually fall for them, so he just won't try... The only anomaly here is Archie, since the two of them dated back in school and Maxie might not be completely over those feelings yet... Maybe...
<p>
<i>The biggest thing I'm looking for in this area is pureblood (or near enough) women he could be set up on a date with, because that kind of plot is always fun. He's unlikely to develop any actual feelings but it is definitely a possibility still, it would just take some time, but I am just as much up for failed attempts and awkward exes, or even being a couple for publicity alone. Anyone non-pureblood so someone he wouldn't have been set up with by his mother for instance, again, he's unlikely to reciprocate quickly but you can definitely still drag him out to dates he doesn't realise are dates and we can have some fun with that too!</i>
<p>

<h2>ENEMIES</h2>
As a very strict boss, it's likely not all of his subordinates will like him, and there are of course those people who might find him so dreary they turn against him. But there isn't anything overall offensive about him, so it's unlikely he'll draw in a lot of enemies. His research is certainly... questionable, if you look into it too deeply though, and is probably the biggest area where he might encounter friction, but in his day to day life he's probably more likely to have annoyances than enemies.
<p>
<i>So far he's not done anything bad enough to seriously bother anyone I would think, but I would LOVE someone to have an issue with his research. He's digging into ancient, very dangerous magic from civilisations long since past, which has the power to change the shape of the earth. It's entirely uncontrollable, and if he were ever to release it, chances are he would dry up the planet and kill off all life, so someone really should try and stop him. He's quite a way off yet, but anyone who might twig what he's doing is welcome to try and interfere. Any other ideas for enemies too would be great because the main interaction in canon is between him and the hero, and with the head of a rival team, so I do love seeing him interact with enemies.</i>
<p>

<h2>OTHER</h2>
He doesn't have all too many hobbies outside of his research really, so it's unlikely he'll meet a lot of people elsewhere. Anyone who might be interested in studying ancient magic may cross paths with him in a library, and he would welcome any collaboration on his specific project He's a Ravenclaw alumni so may have old schoolmates from Hogwarts, and he would of course talk with most of the members of his own department of the Ministry, as well as potentially other areas of the Ministry of Europe too. But it's unlikely you'll catch him in a bar or a at a Quidditch game, so good luck meeting him elsewhere.
<p>
<i>The people he's most likely to interact with are Ministry workers so that's the easiest way to get a thread with him, but if you do have ideas for anything else then feel free to hit me up! I'd especially love someone to work on his research with him, or like I said above, try and stop him from continuing it. He has no big plots at the moment, just little individual things, so I'd love to hear your ideas if you have some!</i>

<div class="forumrules-small">The landmass of Earth has increased... but the amount of water on the planet has decreased by half.</div>
<p>
<b>After Maxie's research went very, very wrong, the oceans have dried up and the world is facing an apocalyptic style aftermath while the remaining survivors compete for food and water in a planet that looks closer to Mars than Earth.</b>
<p>
In the current Bomb-verse, Maxie is working on research based on some very old wizarding myths about how the world was created from a specific type of magic. He has been trying to learn about this and potentially figure out how to recreate it, so he can help to expand the land to allow for increasing populations. In this universe, he succeeded... only it didn't go exactly how he expected.
<p>
Though he had theorised that the 'expanding land' would have only caused the water to 'rearrange itself' on Earth (because magic can do amazing things), what actually happened is that oceans began to dry up. At present, the world had lost 50% of its original water. So sure, now you can build more housing on old dried up sea-beds, but people and animals alike are dying out fast as water becomes an incredibly sparse resource.
<p>
Maxie himself has gone into hiding trying to fix this, and there are many other scientists and researchers looking into the same thing (you are welcome to be one of them, and you're also welcome to succeed too!). In the mass panic, magic has been exposed to muggles which has led to factions of wizarding people, muggles, and the occasional mixed groups too. Now all remaining communities are forced to compete for both water and food, not to mention shelter from the blistering sun that doesn't seem to ease up until nightfall. It feels like the end of the world. And unless someone does something fast, it very well might be.

<div class="forumrules-small">Things to consider:</div>
<p>
  • the biggest issue is lack of water - think of it like an apocalypse situation where the surviving people are warring over the remaining water supplies<br>
  • most of this has been achieved by the magical version of "more sunlight" which means everywhere on Earth is about ten degrees hotter (in Celsius) than it used to be and shelter from it is now incredibly important<br>
  • this effect continues at night because the heat is created by magic not by the sun, so unlike usual deserts that get very cold at night, you never really get a reprieve from the heat<br>
  • the population of the planet has massively decreased too, in terms of humans, animals, and plants, so it really is like a disaster zone with the remaining population competing to survive<br>
  • any other headcanons you can think of I completely encourage (i.e. aguamenti no longer working due to few sources of water to draw from?) so get thinking about how wizards and muggles alike would work together to survive in this!<br>
