32 / STRAIGHT / PUREBLOOD
About: Martin Herder is the younger of the two Herder siblings, the current Deputy Headmaster and the History of Magic professor. He is very passionate about the subject he teaches and has a habit of rambling on about topics he alone finds interesting, sometimes getting sidetracked during class, which won't be gaining him any favors from most of his students.
He is very set in his ways and passionate about his opinions, which often can lead to verbal confrontation. One of the topics he will not change his opinion is that of the worthiness of muggleborns -- he will defend muggleborns with all his might and helping muggleborn students is his number one priority. School staff who are against his views will find themselves treated with disdain and elitist students will have to endure long lectures on the subject. His loyalty to Johan and his reforms is unshakable.
Friends: To land in Martin's good list, first and foremost, you have to support Johan's reforms, or at least not be against them and muggleborns in general. If you check that box, Martin is a very passionate, curious and intelligent young man. While history is his main thing, he's very happy to learn about other subjects and, if he knows enough about the subject, will engage in debate about different topics, or bombard you with questions.
Outside of class, students might run into Martin on the Quidditch pitch. He used to be a great Seeker in his own Durmstrang days, and if not for history, he would have pursued a professional sports career. He's very happy to lend a hand during practice as a Keeper or a Chaser, but he makes for a terrible Beater.
He's also made it very clear that if any muggleborn students are struggling with their day to day life at Durmstrang, his office door is open at any time if there is any need -- just to talk, or to pursue action against any wrongdoers.
Enemies: Pureblood elitists will immediately be placed in this category without much chance of getting out of it.
Lovers: Martin once loved a muggleborn witch from Russia, but once his elitist father found out about it, Detlaf Herder orchestrated the young woman's murder and framed his own son for it. If not for Johan standing up for Martin, Martin would be rotting in a cell for a crime he didn't commit. This makes love a sore topic for Martin, but deep down he longs to love someone once more. He's afraid that something bad might happen again, even though his father is no longer a threat. If he catches feelings, he might not want to express it, marinating in his fear of the future.

300+ / GHOST
About: Everyone knows Sigurd. They know a lot of outlandish stories about Sigurd, all of them told by Sigurd himself. He's the first to greet the students and staff at the start of the year, he's always ready to help someone in need, he won't hesitate to challenge boys to duels and won't miss a chance to try and woo a lady, no matter if she's alive, a ghost or a mere painting.
Friends: Everyone is his friend! As long as you don't insult his honor. He cares not for blood status or wealth, all he wishes for someone who's eager to listen to his life story... or some version of it.
Enemies: Only those who have insulted his honor or acted dishonorably in front of him. Be sure that the entirety of Durmstrang will know of your transgressions, he won't let you get away with your crime.
Lovers: He's a ghost, and his flirting is just that -- a reminiscence of how he was during his life. He doesn't get attached in any human way.

About: Once Oskar Cederblom was the heir of the Cederblom family, the grandson of the Headmaster Magnus Cederblom, a promising young wizard who'd passed his Apparation exam at the age of 13. In 2008, his grandfather decided to meddle with powers beyond his understanding, and now Oskar is a shadow of who he once was. His magic was stripped away from him, leaving the young man a squib.
For the last 10 years he's been the Keeper of the Grounds, spending his time sulking about all the magic around him, chasing stray wanderers out of the Sacred Grove. There is nothing more disgraceful to him than being a squib -- to him it is even worse than being a muggleborn.
If he isn't prowling the forest with his bow and arrow, looking for trespassers or a reindeer for dinner, he's sitting in the furthest corner of the library, reading tomes on ancient magic desperately trying to figure out a way to get his powers back while trying to hide his lack of magic from the school -- though by now it is, if not an open secret, then a rumor that hasn't died for 13 years, even during the time when his grandfather punished anyone for even mentioning the Sacred Grove out loud.
Friends: Oskar himself doesn't think he has friends. After the entire ordeal he became bitter and closed off, which doesn't really help with building friendships. He hasn't told anyone what's happened with him, and when he does, that person can consider themselves a friend.
Enemies: At this moment in time, Oskar considers the Herders his enemies -- but not because of the blood thing. He doesn't like them changing things, but he's more worried that they might kick him out -- he is the grandfather of the previous headmaster, after all -- before he manages to get his magic back.
Lovers: Look at the friends section again and think about it. And yet that didn't deter one Matthias Parekh from becoming Oskar' s endgame.
