Dimitri is a cynical, witty, manipulative brat. He gets a kick out of teasing people because he finds it to be fun and harmless even if his jokes are anything but. He's quite a prideful young man and doesn't like to admit if he's in the wrong. However if someone else is wrong, he won't be afraid to point out their faults in a snarky and condescending manner. His tongue is as sharp as his glare.
He's kind of strange for a Slytherin; he's outgoing and doesn't mind making friends from other houses. That doesn't mean he's a perky Polly or anything like that though. He just enjoys making conversation with people even if he has never met them before. Dimitri is kind of strange as he can be a dickwad to a very kind person depending on how he first meets you. After all, he is very impressionable although he likes to form his own wild opinions about people based on their first meeting. Most of the time, Dimitri just acts like a silly old man who has those strange flamingos on his front yard.
Truly, Dimitri is just socially awkward. He doesn't know how to interact with others very well. so he acts like a jerk to hide the fact that he is actually scared that others will perceive him as weak. Once you are friends with Dimitri and on good terms with him, he's actually a pretty decent guy at least to you. Dimitri seems to be a lot nicer to people who are social outcasts but his kindness is only a thing to be revealed in secrecy when him and the other are alone.Background:
Dimitri grew up as the youngest child in a family of purebloods. He had a lot to prove to his family not only because he's the youngest, but because his older sister had disgraced their family.
During his childhood, Dimitri's parents never were at home, so they left him in the care of the house elves. The elves were very kind to the young master especially the eldest one, and they treated him like a prince. Dimitri felt that the house elves were better parents than his actual ones. One day, Dimitri broke a vase. It was a very important one too, but an elderly house elf told him not to worry and that everything would be okay. That night, Dimitri woke up to the sounds of shouting. Peeking outside, Dimitri looked at his mother yelling at an elderly house elf. The words spewing out of her mouth would make anyone cry. Laying in bed afterwards, Dimitri wondered why the house elf would take the blame over something so small. The next day, Dimitri asked if there was anything he could do repay the elf for her kindness. The house elf shook her head, but Dimitri knew she wanted to be freed from the life of servitude she had always been under. Dimitri gave her a scarf to release her. Grateful to her now ex-master, she left the Leshchyov house. While glad that he repayed the house elf, he began to feel lonely again and soon lost his sense of kindness that the elderly house elf once showed him.
A year after, Dimitri's parents made him go to fancy parties to make connections to the head honchos of the wizard world through their children. Dimitri didn't like at all to say the least. He found them stuck up a snobbish, but he continued to attend these parties without fuss in hopes he might find someone worth befriending. One morning, two older people and a young girl about his age came by his home. Her name was Mei-Lin, and she was just as awkward as him. When the two were left alone, it was awkward to say the least. It was exchange of glances at first until Mei-Lin was the first one to speak up. After talking for a good bit, they became friends. Grateful for at least another friend, Dimitri promised her they would keep in touch.
When Dimitri turned 11, he received an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Dimitri was more than ecstatic and wondered if Mei-Lin was accepted as well. Mei-Lin soon called him asking if he was accepted as well. Dimitri was relieved that his friend was invited to Hogwarts as well. They went to Diagon Alley to go shopping. Both were quite amazed at the selection of choices they had to choose from, the bustle of the crowd, and the other children ready to attend Hogwarts.
On their trip to Hogwarts, the two close friends got into a fight. Mei-Lin was joking around and said that she would be the better magic-user. Dimitri took it offensively since he wasn't going to let anyone beat him. It would be a hindsight to his goal of proving his worth to his family after all his sister disgraced the family name so long ago by marrying a muggle man despite his family's protests. He insulted her back which caused them to fight on the train. During the Sorting, the hat contemplated a bit. Dimitri was quite brave, but he was cunning as well. In the end, his cunning nature overpowered his bravery, and he was sorted into Slytherin. In the end, Mei-Lin was sorted into Slytherin as well. It seems that the battle had only begun.

Name: Arthur Lewis Edgeworth Inigo Owain Brandel Laurent Gerome the III
A mischevious snail who likes to get its slime all over Dimitri's work, textbooks, and his won hair. He likes to wander off from time to time but he always returns before anyone notices he's missing. Arthur likes to attach himself to various places where he's not allowed to such as someone's face or wand. He likes Dimtiri very much and always faithfully nests in his hair whenever the oppurtunity presents itself.
Relationships: Isabelle Azarola
Dimitri met her on his way to Hogwarts during his second year. Looking for a place to sit, he ran into this eager first year. He was slightly put off by her enthusiasm which he wasn't used to at all. Flustered, he rejected her offer to sit with her and found a different seat. Isabelle constantly tries to outdo him, but Dimitri doesn't let her win easily. He doesn't hate her, and he actually finds her to be a bit amusing. Mei-Lin Cheng
His childhood friend who has impacted him in more areas than one. They've made up recently, and Dimitri was glad to see that Mei-Lin also wanted to make amends with him for awhile as well. He feels guilty for making her worry over him so much. Dimitri is trying to make it up to her.
A cute Slytherin girl who he met through potions class. He finds her to be quite capable and elegant. He's relieved that she doesn't point out his blushing. He hopes he can be see her more often as he finds her to be interesting and one of the few females he managed not to piss off.
A Hufflepuff who he used to date. While he's rather upset that they broke up, he's determined to move on. Maybe it could work out one day??? Amy Deas
Dimitri thinks that Amy is a complete child. He's quite upset at her cat for almost eating his snail too. Despite their polar oppositeness, Dimitri helped her find her long lost friend who he so happened to know as well. Dimitri has mixed feelings on whether to call her an acquaintance or an annoyance.
A Slytherin who he has had the pleasure of encountering a few times as of late. Dimitri finds him interesting to talk to, and they get along pretty well ever since the first time they actually held a conversation. Dimitri thinks that Lawrence can be a bit of a know-it-all, and Lawrence should've been placed in Ravenclaw.
A younger Slytherin who Dimitri found quite annoying at first. After talking to him for a while, he found that Silvester and him were actually quite similar, almost as if they were one in the same. Dimitri wants to be a good role model for Silvester.
Yet another Hufflepuff that he has met. He met her at the library and got off on a pretty good start with her! She was very nice and sweet, which Dimitri liked a lot. Her shy nature made Dimitri wish to take care of her, so he treats the girl like a little sister. He has a habit of patting her head whenever she gets nervous.
A fellow Slytherin who came off to Dimitri as a typical "pretty boy", but he actually is a decent guy. Dimitri finds him enjoyable and pleasant to be around, so his company is much appreciated. He hopes to become better friends with him since he has none.
A really cool Hufflepuff. He came off as a little scaredy cat who couldn't defend himself, but Dimitri was pleasantly surprised to find that Emery was a cool guy. Although he'd rather be Emery's friend, Dimitri can't help but act like his mother(s).
